BH Cosmetics Cruelty Free Liquid Foundation- Review

 

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog ūüôā

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m a big fan of BH Cosmetics products because their products are not tested on animals (cruelty free) and so far, the products I purchased from BH haven’t let me down. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the good and consistent quality par with an affordable price.

To start, I’m NC20 currently with warm undertone. I bought this online because it was on 50% discount from $9.00. I paid $4.50 for a 0.85 oz product.¬†So, I picked the shade M3 in Medium Olive among the other twelve available colors.

I like¬†cute glass packaging foundation that comes with a pump. Don’t you? Or is this just me!¬†The pump works fine and the consistency of the formula is decent. Yes, it has a pump. A plus for hygiene! I find it not overly liquidy¬†to my liking. I would say it has a close consistency¬†with the¬†BB cream if that make sense.

Anyways, I’ve tried this product for over a week and I’m liking it. The problem I experience with this foundation is the shade. I got a shade a bit darker than my usual light/medium. what I did was to mix it with my other foundation of lighter shade for now. I tend to get tan quite easily in summer so a darker shade is .

See what I mean! Uh hmm! I was shocked¬†when I saw the color of the foundation when I pumped it out on hand. It looks so orangey yellow and it’s definitely¬†darker than my skin tone. bump!

Upon application, I could tell it was too dark and it even oxidized after application making it even darker.

The consistency of this foundation reminds me of the BB cream with heavier buildable coverage. I would say it gives you sheer to medium coverage but if you’re looking for a full coverage then you might not like it. ¬†For me, this is perfect because I have combination to dry skin. I was looking for a foundation that looked dewy on the skin and not cakey for summer!

One thing¬†worth¬†mentioning is that I would have loved if it had SPF in it, well it’s not anything terrible for me since I use a moisturizer with SPF anyways, so it’s no biggie.

This product blend into my skin smoothly and nicely.¬†The coverage as I mentioned earlier can be sheer to begin with (but is very buildable) to medium coverage. It’s a bit darker than a BB cream and does oxidizes. So, do not be alarmed if the shade looks a bit orangey straight out of the pump.

Anyways,¬†¬†I’ll continue to wear this on rotation this summer and I’ll update back in this post if there is any changes in my opinion after trying it a little longer.

Overall, this is a decent product given the price I paid for is only $4.50 a bottle. It didn’t cause break out and I’m happy with the formula. As for the color selection, make sure to get a color lighter than your usual product shade as it might be come in a little darker.

What do you think of this foundation? Have you tried it? If yes, I would love to hear your thoughts.

Anyway, that’s it from me for now. See you guys soon.:) Bye!

Thanks for taking the time to read. I’ll see you guys again next time.

Everyday Minerals|FREE Custom Sample kit

 

Hey friends, I just want to share with you some of the samples that I received recently. They are my free custom sample kit which I ordered online from Everyday Minerals and all I have to do is pay for the shipping costs which is about $3.79.

So, I got these 7-piece custom sample kit :

3 pcs for face – lanai in the sand(bronzer), poipu-lar shores(bronzer) and finishing dust(finishing powder);

2 pcs for cheek – peony petal and cameo(blush);

2 pcs for base – golden beige (matte base) and honey(jojoba base)

Okay, let’s get to the point. I got these samples¬†to try the products and also to check the color swatch if it works for me instead of buying a regular¬†size and then decided that it doesn’t. So, I think this is a wiser¬†way to actually pick up any makeup products without much hesitation after sampling them.

These samples have been lying around on my desk for awhile and I decided to try it on today.

I started with¬†their¬†Golden Beige (3w) with peony petal as the blusher and poipu-lar shores the bronzer for today’s makeup look. Since, they were all in powder format, I¬†have a hard time applying them. The powder foundation didn’t stick well and¬†I have to¬†dap my brush with water and then mixed it to make it easier to blend as if it’s a liquid foundation. Maybe, it’s just me, I’m so used to liquid and¬†cream foundations. I like the¬†smooth feeling on my face¬†and it has medium coverage. Would definitely need to build-up for full coverage.

Since I have dry skin, I tried to avoid applying too many layers.¬†Like always,¬† I usually put my moisturizer on before foundation but¬†sad to say,¬†I can still see dry patches on my face with these foundation. My face does looked more radiant and fresh except it’s a little drier for dry skin person. Not too bad for those who prefer powder foundation. The color I chose was a little lighter than my normal color tone.¬†Luckily, this is just a sample and I know now that I’m going to use this as my standard guide on¬†how light or dark shade I should get when ordering online.

The bronzer and blusher works perfectly well for me except that the powder were¬†flying everywhere while I was putting them on. It’s a little bit messy though. I have all finger prints¬†now on my keyboard. Oops!

Overall, I like the color blush and also the bronzer because it’s quite pigmented and soft. The¬†bronzer did it’s job by contouring my face well. I would love to them in creamy formula but that’s just me.¬†For those who loves natural mineral makeup, I would recommend you start with Everyday Mineral. The price is reasonable and the quality is good for a mineral product.

My conclusion is that these samples from Every Minerals are all good products. Except that I need to use them wet instead of dry when it comes to using these pretty formulas.

If you like to try their samples, just click here to get your free samples. You choose the shades you like, how great is that?

Have you tried any mineral makeup products? If you do, which kind and brands do you like most?

Thank you for reading.
