[] Cezanne Ultra Cover UV Foundation II ~~[]

Hey all~~~
Hope you all had a great weekend. Didn't do any thing much this weekend, just read the last book of the Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan. Now I have finished it.. it's really good!!! Highly recommended.

ok, back to the main Topic. Cezanne Ultra Cover UV Foundation II, I got this foundation a while ago. Have been Using it since because of its amazing coverage and great staying power. and For the Price..... It's worth every penny.

I got it in the colour 02 Light Ocher. It Fits perfectly. Blends into the neck nicely, None Cakey. Oil control is a bit above average. has SPF 35 PA+++. THis is also a reformulation of the first version. So the Coverage is better.

The Website says:
Covering effect:Coverage effect has been 20% improved. Provides complete coverage for skin imperfections.And also protection against UV-rays has got much better.
Compared with CEZANNE Foundations
Shade-Off Powder: Catches the light and makes it reflect diffusely, for a natural look that is free of dullness.
Double-Block Powder: Protect the skin against both UV-A and B.

Long-lasting:Formulated with new ingredients, Sebum-clear powder and Sebum-fixing powder that blocks unwanted sebum that is produced over time.
Keep skin moisture:Contains twice the amount of moisturizing ingredients, but still has a nice non-greasy feel.Moisturizing ingredient···Squalane, Chitosan, Rhodomyrtus tomentosa, Hibiscus extract
Natural finish:Its minute particles provide thorough but very natural coverage. Cover and Natural Powder contained.
This is what the case looks like.
And the powder inside. I took out the Sponge because it needs a wash. but the sponge is soft and applies well. a normal Latex sponge. This foundation can be used both dry and wet. I normally use it dry over my liquid foundation to give that extra coverage and oil control through out the day.

Applied to hand on the right half of the hand. Left half is untouched.

Lets have a look how it applies on face.
So this is my bare face.......... pimple scars, pores, black heads.. yuky stuff...........

This is applied to face dry after moisturiser no primers.
It covers minor scars and covers pores perfectly without being cakey. Wears well through out the day. In fact, after about 1-2 hours of wearing when the oil from the skin mixes with the foundation, it the best natural look foundation ever. just great.

Touch up may be needed for every 4-5 hours. So Highly Recommend this foundation, Over any high end powder foundation I have tried any day. FOr the price and Quality... definitely.

[] Stila Haute in The Hamptons Beach Palette & FOTD[]

Hey all ~~
Haven't done a FOTD for a while. I purchased the Stila Haute in The Hamptons Beach Palette on Ebay for about $17.00 USD. The reason why I was so drawn to this pallete is because Rouge Deluxe, She did a look using this palette and it looked amazing.

Click []HERE[] to see her post.

This is what the cover looks like. very holiday summer feel. Wish summer was here quicker.

This is what it looks like inside, it has a mirror, instructions as to how to use the colours. Contains 4 shadow colours, 1 blush and 1 bronzer/contour colour. though I find both colours can be used as blush. because the bronzer colour isn't dark/brown enough.

Here's a closer look for the instructions.
Here's what the back looks like, has the name to all the shades.
So the lightested is called SAND, the golden colour is called Linen. The dark brown is called Route 27, and the blue is called Blue Skies. it is a Beautiful muted Blue colour.
All these colours has a slight sheen to them, not sparkly, which I REALLY LIKE...

The top blush colour is Hydrangea, the bottom is called Montauk Highway.
here's a picture of swatch on my hand under natural lighting. no FLASH. the colours stay pretty true to real life.

Here's a list of items I used for this FOTD:
- Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation
- Cezanne pink case powder foundation to set the foundation
- Lavschuca eye brow set
- Canmake brow mascara in 03
- Revlon colorburst in Mauve for lips
- Maquillage eyelash curler
- kiss me heroine mascara (volume & curl)

I used the Hydrangea colour from the Stila palette as blush. looks very similar to Mac's Fluer Power which I've been using nearly every day since I got it.

For eyes, I didn't exactly follow the instructions:
- Use Sand all over the lid as a base
- Use Linen over eye lid to give that bit more golden colour
- Use Route 27 within the crease across the eyelid
- Use Blue skies in the outter corner give that extra bit pop of colour.

I tried using the blue skies under the eyes, find it a bit too dark. I was going for a more natural look. may be next look should be a more heavier eye look with eyeliners as well.

This is what it looks like with eyes open
Hope you can see the colours from this picture above.
The blush colour looks quite natural.
And this is final look and hope you all like it.

Hope every one have a great weekend...

[] July/August Favourite []~~~

Hey all
Hope you all had a great weekend, I'm still recovering from sore muscles and bruises from the skii trip. But it was fun. So just wanted to share with you guys the products that I have been really using during July and August.

So I have been getting some skin allergy or something, having pimples and spots near my chin area and forehead. So I decided to try the Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1. This is New formula, I tried the old formula, which was drying and lots of alcohol smell. This one still contains alcohol, but not as harsh and it's got moisture keeping ingredients like sodium hyaluronate and also which hazel to calm the skin down.

In conjunction I have been using the Naruko Tea Tree Sebum Control Night Gelly. Really works. Keep my skin smooth and wake up with pimples less red and not as oily but still moisturized. great product for troubled skin.

Been loving the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation, using it nearly every day. some times Mixed with my Estee Lauder DWL. really nice foundation in general. I review it before you can check my review for it []HERE[]

Cezanne Foundation, great coverage, none cakey. nice oil control. Will do a review soon. I think it works better than my Maquillage one.

Been using my Mac Fluer Power blush every day......... LOVe it.....................
Also the Magnum Maybelline mascara. pretty good, but not water proof, and not smudge proof as my Kiss me Heroine Mascara, but easy to take off. Will do a review soon too.

Have a great week every one.

[] Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Review[]~~

Hey all~~
Weekend Finally. Just tired from work this week. So now I have time to update.
So I got the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation a while ago because of all the hype saying how good this is. how amazing. Had to try it. I was matched to the shade B20. It's slight dark for me right now in middle of winter. but I think it should be perfect match in Summer. B20 is actually very yellow toned, which suits asian skintones quite well.

It comes in a 30mL plastic bottle. light easy to carry, no breaking. a squeezy tube hygienic. The only thing I don't like is that I have to shake this before using. I don't mean like just shake. you have to shake it like bar tender for like 30 seconds or a minute. or else it's gonna come out two phased. So if i'm in a hurry in the morning. I don't use this.

The package.
The back of package, and ingredient list.
This is what it looks like when it comes out of bottle.

A bit blended.

This is blended into skin.

Lets see how it turns out on skin.
Bare face as usual, under natural indoor lighting.
One layer of foundation applied. Dries a semi matte finish.
The foundation is suppose to be like a second layer of your skin. I agree, but I don't agree with giving a light natural finish. I find it to give a medium coverage. and actually covers quite well. I would say 60% coverage, very similar to my Double Wear Light. It blends so easily, glides on like a dream. It has that Chanel fragrance to it. It might bother some people though.

This foundation lasts about 5-6 hours on my combination/dry skin need blotting. If you set it with an oil absorbing powder may be it will last longer. It fades nicely too, no patches, blotches. I'm not sure how this will go with dry skin though. I mean probably get a sample and try it? also there are lots of reviews on you tube too.

Have a great weekend.

P.S. announcing winners to give away soon.
