When you are aging like I am, you will find everything you can find to delay all signs of aging. We have all heard about collagen and how important it is to our body and skin. Collagen can be found in the skin, bones and all connective tissues. Needless to say, it is the most common protein in the human body. Without collagen, fine lines and wrinkles will deepen and emerged to the surface of the skin. Just like Hyaluronic Acid, our body produces collagen in a small quantity and it will depletes over time. If you are living a poor lifestyle, this will accelerate the depletion and slow down the reproduction process. As a result, you will get signs of aging appears, saggy skin and age spots.
My current everyday foundation and concealer for the past few months has been nothing but the Bourjois City Radiance Skin Protecting Foundation and Radiance Reveal Concealer. I have been using them so much that I am going to run out soon because the product testing turned from a month to two months and now three months! Oppss! I hope I can sleep better now that this review is up 😀
I first spotted the L’Oréal Lucent Magique Cushion Glow Blush at Guardian store almost three months ago, together with a few other L’Oréal new products. The idea of a cushion blush is really intriguing especially now that everything is ‘cushionized’ 😀 . Did I pick it up on the spot? Nope. The price of RM49.90 is the reason why. I have a whole box of new blushes at home and having to spend 50 bucks for a new blush is just not my priority at that time. I am glad I did not pick any up as L’Oréal gave me one at the L’Oréal Paris Makeup Designer new tagline and product launch.
One of my very first Innisfree product is not The Green Tea Seed Serum but this No-Sebum Mineral Powder. Back then I have really oily skin and anything that said ‘matte’ or ‘no-sebum’ suck me into purchasing them automatically. The best part? This Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder is VERY affordable. Like student-budget type of affordable 😀
Nothing excites me more than a new foundation release. Exactly a month ago, Shiseido released Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation, which is said to be a smart, modern matte, long-lasting foundation that synchronizes with each skin type.
When I heard that this foundation is matte, that is it! I was sold. I have not been using any Shiseido foundation for quite some time so I was not sure what differs this from the rest of the foundation clan within the brand. My last Shiseido foundation trial would be the Sheer and Perfect Foundation, which I like when I want a dewy, light coverage.
This, I did not expect. It wasn’t until I was handed a bottle of the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water just before Christmas that I found out this was going to be made available at Sephora. I would expect this to take longer to reach us but nope. It came far more earlier than I predicted.
The Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water has been one of the most highly raved product when it was launched in the U.S. It is a BB (Blemish Balm) water aka foundation-like that has built-in primer water technology. If you are a fan of the Primer water, you know this is going to be your next favourite product. Smashbox said the technological feature is their breakthrough system that suspends pigments in H2O. This means, you get a BB that gives you a demi-matte finishing that hydrates your skin throughout the day, thanks to Photoset Polymers, taken from medical grade liquid bandage technology. Now, I do not know about you but all this sounds too techie for a beauty freak like me lol.
