Bourjois: Healthy mix serum foundation

   Bourjois Healthy mix serum foundation review here!!! hehe I am in the shade 53 and this is actually a perfect match for my skin!! wehhee!! It's actually pretty hard to find the right shade when shopping at the drugstore because its either they don't have samples or the lighting can be misleading. But yea! It's all good!! since I got the right shade~

    I actually really like this foundation because it really fits my skin type. I have oily combination skin. This foundation is quite light weight on the skin so my skin doesn't really feel caked up. It last quite a long time on my skin despite the really hot weather. I also love the scent of this foundation! It's kinda fruity? but yea ! here are swatches and how the packaging looks like

 I like the packaging because it isn't bulky and funky shaped.. haha also I like how there is a pump because it doesn't get infected with germs also it is neat when the product is used. Especially products without the pump you can either pour out too much or pour it / spill it somewhere where make up shouldn't be... like your carpet.....

 This is how the product looks when not blended~ 

Left side: no foundation
Right side: thin layer of foundation blended
I would say the foundation has a medium coverage. As you can see the left side the veins are clearly seen. But on the right side you can barely see the veins~ The staying power is pretty good. The package claims in stay for 16 hours but for my skin it stayed for around 10 hours. The finish of this foundation is satin~ itsn't too matte or too glossy~~ That is still pretty good for me~~ 

So Yeah!!! end of post! hope you guys enjoyed this !! 
any questions? Don't hesitate to ask :)

L'Oreal: infallible 021 sahara treasure

A beautiful golden colour by L'Oreal.  It is one of their Infalliable eyeshadow in 021 Sahara Treasure. I've actually purchased this product a while back but didn't really know how to use it. I tried using a flat shader brush or even my finger but it didn't apply the way I wanted it to. One day I just picked up a fluffy blending brush and it worked beautifully. I use this colour as a all over lid colour or an accent colour. Simply beautiful! I can't believe me it too this long for me to love this product.

Here is how the packaging looks like as well as a swatch ~ 

It is a very nice golden colour. It isn't actually like gold.. gold but like a rusty gold colour~

July & August MAC Eye shadow favorites

Here are swatches from my July & August MAC eyeshadows also how the empty quad looks like.

This was how my quad looked like majority of July and August. I love this quad because I can pick different colours for different looks. Since I travel alot I can't bring all my make up so I try to bring minimal items. Two top colours are Brule and Honey lust and the bottom two colours are wedge and espresso. With these colours I can do a full matte look or just the honey lust to bling up the look.

Here are the swatches. I used the fingers to swatch it. All colours besides Honey lust are really easy to work with. However, honey lust which is a luster finish has alot of fall out and the brush is not able to pick up a lot of the product. So when a brush is used the sparkles apply very sparsely on the lids. So how I apply the honey lust eyeshadow is either I used a sponge tip applicator or my fingers and just pat the colour where I want it to be. 

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Maybe I'll take pictures on how the look I created looks like.

Clio: gelpresso pencil gell liner mini

Hi Everyone!!
Here are swatches of the Clio - gelpresso pencil gell liner mini! and a bit of what I think about it

Here is the how the packaging looks inside and outside. I really like the packaging because it's really compact. Perfect for traveling. Also there are 5 different colours so you can experiment with different colours and see what colour compliments your eye colour. Not only can you experiment with one colour, you can use different combinations of the colours and make different looks.

Now for the swatches of the eyeliners. 
Left to right the colours are
1) pink pearl colour
2) Olive colour
3) Purple colour
4) Bronze/Brown colour
5) Black colour
Thees eyeliners are quite pigmented also they contain some glitter. Not all of the colours contains glitter but there are also some metallic shades. The glitters from the eyeliner doesn't really show up when you draw it on. This can be a good or bad thing depending on you. If you like glittery eyeliner or liners without glitters. The eyeliner is abit hard when you draw it on your eyes but for it its not that bad that I feel like it's tugging the skin on my eyes. The lasting power of this liner is average. It does smudge easily which is a plus for me because a lot of eyeliners smudge easily on my eyes and I end up with panda eyes.

I'm not sure where eyes this eyeliner is available but I got it in a Olive Young store which is in Korea.
Hope this post was useful!! :)
