2009 HauL~~ EL & Dior

Hey all ~~~
How was the Chinese New years??? had heaps of nice food, spent time with family?? and alot of red pockets I assume?? hhehe.
Ok I think by now, you guys would've known that I'm a foundation FREAK..~~ I love purchasing foundations. People would think you gota have like alot of eyeshadows in different colours.. For me Is different. I don't wear alot of eye make up. normally just a hint of earthy colour with eyeliner and mascara and i'm good to go.
But I think the look of skin is more important, like if you see some one with perfect eye make up but bad skin. you wouldn't think that makeup would look good. Where as if a person has a perfect skin then you would think the make up looks good. If you know what I mean. may be you have different point of view.. ok i'm just blabing on..
Main Content:
So I was attempted by alot of Asian Bloggers because alot of review site give out awards to like the top rank make up items. And in the foundation range, Estee Lauder Double Wear Original Formula constantly win awards like year after year after year. So I had to try it.
I got it in the color SAND 36. It's a tiny bit light on me. But after 20 mintues the foundation becames more natural and trust me it LASTS. I tried it the other day went out in 36 degrees heat. (it's like if you move too much, causing too much friction and you can catch on fire =p) The colour is not too yellow, nor pink. Just right LOVE IT.. i'm MAC SFF NC 20. but NC 20 is really yellow. Super great coverage. Covers like every thing.... matte finish. you need to contour with this foundation, or you would look really "flat"
So show you some photos..

Here's the Ingredient List:
lets try it on my hand..
Here's my Bare Hand ~~ nothing on ( the picture is a bit blurred sorry)

Here's a picture of the foundation on the right half of my hand
Then applied my MAC Mineralized SkinFinish Natural in Light/Medium on top. (that's a full coverage there)

It dries really quick. It may look too cakey or " OMG you have massive amounts of make up on". I don't suggest using foundation brush, it will turn out NASTY.. use a sponge. that's what I do.. spreads perfectly. and little goes a long way.
The next Item I got is the Dior Snow Sublissime whitening foundation powder in 020.
It's not avaliable in Australia or European countires I think not sure about US, I asked a friend to buy it for me from overseas. The price on it is 6200 yen. But I paid more than that for it. It's quite expensive. it's 10 g product. Comes with a cute pouch.
The pouch is this dark navy colour and the compact it self is white. The case is sparkly. LOL Super cute.

It's got 2 compartment, One for the sponge, the bottom is the powder.

I took a photo of the powder to show the colour. (Wish Flash)

(No Flash)
I Haven't tried it on yet. But will let you know.. ~~~
P.S I can't wait for Mac's brunette, blonde, redhead collection to come out in Australia. I wanna that MSF and lipstick!!! hehehe
P.P.S I love fuz's new videos.. her voice is really nice and soo cute..
Take cares~~~

Hi Purple!

I've got the Diorsnow liquid makeup in Shade 021, which has a yellow undertone. I really like it.

I also have the Diorskin Forever foundation up for sale on my blog. It's got more coverage than I'm looking for, but will definitely hide a lot of blemishes!

I wish not approve on it. I over warm-hearted post. Particularly the designation attracted me to be familiar with the sound story.
