Beauty Haul for 2012~~~

 Hey all ~~.
Sorry for the lack of posting in January, my relatives came over to Sydney from Overseas, so I've been busy taking them around acting like a tourist. went to Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Sky Tower, Sydney CBD area, China town and etc.

Any ways. I bought a few items just wanted to share with you guys.

- Melvita Rose water
- QV face day cream SPF 30+
- Bare Escentuals Original Foundation in medium beige
- Clarins Skin Illusion Foundaiton in Sand
- Nature & Co, Cotton Veil Mineral Liquid Foundation SPF 25 PA+++ in 410

I saw Fleur De Force best of 2011 video she mentioned the brand Melvita and I did some research turns to be an organic range so I thought I give it a try.

Wanted to buy a more natural looking foundation, I think these days my skin is just looking dull and because of my sensitive skin it's gone wacky for some reason. matte foundations makes it look very unflattering. 
So I decided to get the Skin Illusion Foundation. I was Initially getting the colour in 110 Honey, but after trying 108 Sand, i prefer Sand. I find the colour is more brighter, I mean Honey is probably the perfect match, but makes it look a bit dull not as radiant looking as Sand.

 It comes in a glass bottle (30 ml) with pump and a golden cap. quite poshy looking.

 The product comes out very creamy not that light, I think it's in between a cream and liquid foundation texture.

 After spread out a little bit.

 Completely spread out. It gives a nice glow without looking oily. it covers about 70-80 % of imperfections, yet still let your natural skin to shine through. I quite like it. though with my combination skin have to blot may be 2 times a day. and the staying power's not bad.

Another foundation I bought is the Nature and Co's Cotton veil mineral liquid foundation. It has no fragrance, no parabens no nasty stuff great for sensitive skin. got it in the shade 410.

 This is what it looks like when squeezed out.

 spread out.
and blended in. it has a more of a peachy tone, and it is more moistursing. so I suppose use it when cold weather comes in.

product review comes soon.. ~~

have a great weekend.
