Thank you Maybelline for always making my heart skipped a bit!

 

Good morning! What’s up you guys! This post is going to be about Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation.

Yay! I’m excited so let’s jump into it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yass!! Today I’ll be doing a product review on this Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation. Now, who is excited? This product is available at any drugstores, Walmart or on their website.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is how it looks like.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got the shade in Classic Ivory (#20). A pretty nice color that’s not too pale for my light-medium skin tone to my surprise. I’m much paler in winter than other season of the year and I prefer shades which is lighter than dark. I really like the cute packaging as well. It’s really nice and compact, an all-in-one, airtight compact which maintained the moistness of the sponge and the stamp form with the cap and body that didn’t separate.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m just going to show you the instructions behind the packaging. Note this product is made in Korea. Korea has gained popularity worldwide over the past decades. We know that with the Korean beauty boom its impact on the global cosmetic and personal care industries has gained both momentum and credibility in beauty markets around the world.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Maybelline Dream Cushion foundation has eight shades available for every skin tone: 10 Porcelain, 15 Ivory, 20 Classic Ivory, 30 Warm Nude, 40 True Beige, 45 Medium Beige, 55 Caramel and 60 Cocoa.

Have you seen these cushion compacts like this one have been over the place lately!

For example, we have seen beauty powerhouses like Chanel, Lancôme and L’Oréal launched their own cushion compact foundations in the beauty market since the beginning of last year.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When you open the compact, instead of there being a pan of cream or powder, there’s a sponge pre-soaked with liquid foundation.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This cushion foundation is lightweight, it gives medium coverage and beautifully blurs my pores. On top of that, blending it doesn’t budge on my skin at all.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I actually really like the sponge. It feels so soft. Love, love it! And here’s what the cushion foundation looks like. The packaging is almost identical to the L’oreal Lumi Cushion Foundation.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just one quick little dab gives you a lot of product. So, a little goes a long way. I like that! I love the consistency and I love this sponge applicator that comes with it. It feels extremely light on skin. Ahh!!! I love it!

maybellinedreamcushion

It gives a pretty dewy look on my skin which I really like. It’s great coverage and you could build it up to your desire coverage. It’s really a nice product because it’s convenient to bring it everywhere, it has a great consistency and the formula is outstanding.

Are you excited to pick up this cushion foundation? Comment below.

Anyways, that’s it for today’s review. If you guys have any questions, let me know.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I hope to see you soon on my next post. Bye!

Best Face Sheet Mask Samples – SKIN 18

 

Hey guys! Welcome back.

I`m back today with a face mask for all of you out there who simply want more radiant skin 🙂 Since these masks are natural, they can`t hurt you unless you`re allergic to them.

I want to mention that these sheet masks are samples which were sent to me by SKIN 18. I’ve never tried products from this brand before so I was excited when I found out that this store actually specializes in Korean beauty products!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
*Press Samples

A while ago, I saw a beauty blogger talks about it on my facebook feed and since I’m a big fan of Korean skincare products, I decided to check the company out. So, after a few email exchange I got these in my mail box.

I love trying out new products to review for you guys and well here’s what I got.

Let’s quickly dive in:

Face Mask:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

1) Mirum Fresh Acai Berry Real Mask

Like any other sheet mask, I’ve tried this Acai Berry Real Mask smells amazing. All I have to do is just follow the instructions on their website since on the packaging everything was printed in Korean.I feel the cooling effect on the surface of my skin and its very soothing. I felt an initial tingling sensation for a second or two and the rest was history. The formula pretty much absorb into my skin and I noticed after cleaning out whatever excess behind, that my skin look so much brighter and fresh. I have a good skin days lately and this mask just makes it even more appealing. My skin still feel soft and smooth the next day too. So, I’m happy with this product.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

2) Luke Hydrogel Eye Patch for Eye Puffiness (purple)

This eye patch smells amazing. I really mean amazing!  Love the scents a lot. Very calming and makes you feel very relaxed.

The direction is straight forward. Cleanse your face and then peel off the patch and stick it under your lower eyes area. Leave it on for 30 minutes. I’ve tried using different remedies such as cucumber and tea bags but this is so much efficient and convenient. I can still do my blogging seated up, do laundry etc.. which I find quite productive. So yay for that!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But other than being efficient, I don’t much changes in terms of less puffiness on my lower eyes area. I think this need to be worn several times to get the required results. Since I’ve some serious puffy eyes lately for lack of sleep (due to the hot weather). Frankly, I don’t see much help using this hydrogel eye patch at least for me.

3) Royal Skin The Animallian Mask (sheep)

The idea behind these masks is that they are like a sheet mask, but are a little more quirky and whimsical since they have an animal face printed on them. I happened to have a sheep face, whahaha! Well, a way to make your skincare routine a little more fun, I guess :P!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is what it looks like. I’m amazed how they even put color on the sheet masks to replicate the design on the packaging. I kid you not, whahaha!

I tried this mask two days later after the initial Acai Berry sheet mask. Yes, I look silly with this mask on. I think it makes me looks like Joker than a sheep. But anyways, I’m doing it for you guys, eh! In my opinion, Korean beauty brands know exactly how to make good quality sheet masks that smells freaking amazing but very gentle to skin. I didn’t notice any tingling or burning sensation when I had them on. Super happy with that!

My only concern every time I’ trying out masks – is if any of the product could cause my skin to break out but I was pleasantly surprised that what this sheet mask did was to make my face feels tighter, silky soft and smoother.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

4) LomiLomi 7 Skin Scheduler Friday Mask (acerola)

Among the three sheet masks I received. I would say this recovery mask is the most condense formula I’ve ever tried. The sheet mask is soaking wet with the product and it smells of cherries.

It absorb to skin through minute passed and I’m quite impressed with it. After peeling off the mask, I massaged it slowly for the fluid/gel to really go into skin. Upon peeling off the mask, my face feels cooling and relaxed.

I did rinsed the extra gel off with warm water and the result is a smooth baby skin. I really love this sheet mask. It’s not dying and I’m really happy with the result. I will recommend this to anyone who wants to try Korean skincare mask. This is the one!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

5) Ben & Sera 30 days Anti-Aging Project Serum

I’ve been trying this for the past one week and is happy with the result I got. This is the only product I don’t smell anything more than just a serum. Love the stringer applicator packaging. I find it quite unique.

So far, it’s working well as a serum and you know right that for skincare treatment, products usually it takes longer than a week or months to see the actual results. I’ll continue to use this serum until it finishes. Will report back if I find anything bad to say.

Conclusion, I’ve tried many sheet mask over the past months and these are definitely my favorite especially the LomiLomi Recovery Mask. With natural ingredients, there is no risks, so be sure to try these out and let me know how it goes! I love to hear your comments below.

Thanks so much for stopping by and read. I’ll see you back on the next one. Bye!

Beauty Review Korean BB Face Cream

 

Hi guys! Today I’m going to share with you a product that I’ve been reaching for the past many weeks.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
BB Face Cream

I know that I’ve been neglecting on some face cream review this year. Today, I want to make out with you guys with this BB Cream which had been in the back burner since last summer. If you like to read over a full review on my previous Japan Makeup Haul, here is the link.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Seriously, just one tube of this foundation is all I need when my skin are the happiest, meaning when I have a good skin days.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Bilingual ingredients and product feature. I don’t know any of you read Korean, but sadly I don’t. I welcome this bilingual packaging with open arms, I honestly think it’s helpful and brilliant.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Korean BB Cream makes it to the American market and has been growing in popularity. I know you want to see up close the texture and consistency of this product. Here is the color swatch in Natural Beige.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It blends like a dream and very lightweight feeling. Comfortable on skin and natural looking. This shade just blend in beautifully into my hand. I didn’t see it been cakey or powdery. It smells amazing, not to mention moisturizing.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Leaving my skin feeling smooth and natural. I definitely love this BB cream.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This product is for Daiso Japan and Made In Korea. If you see this BB face cream in your local Daiso, I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a sheer coverage BB cream. So this is a fantastic product if you love this BB cream!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hope that helps a bit!

What do you think beauty products you recently pick up from Daiso? Can you find the same BB cream in your local Daiso? I would absolutely love to hear from you, either way!

Also, I will be reviewing many of makeup products in the weeks to come, so please stay tuned for more reviews!

Alrighty, so that’s pretty much it for today’s post! Hope to see on the next one.

Thank you for taking the time to read. .

it Cosmetics CC+ & SPF 50+ |Ipsy Glam Bag

Hi Everyone!

it cosmetics

I have been wanting to try this it Cosmetics CC+ cream since I first heard it from some youtube beauty gurus raving about it. I’m curious to try it out myself if the chance permitted and as a matter of fact, I did want to have it in my summer makeup essential. I was ecstatic when I got a sample tube in my Ipsy glam bag. Yay!!! To subscribe just hit click on the link “Ipsy” for $10 monthly subscription.

it cc cream

The shade I got is in Medium and the net wt: 0.135 fl oz. The size is as big as a Mama finger (taken from children finger song). I love the toothpaste tube packaging idea. It’s easy to use and with the pointy head on the tube it controls the cream from oozing out too much. The plastic tube is transparent and hence making selecting the right shade a breeze ❤

cc cream spf 50+

In the packaging, it Cosmetics claim that this CC+ cream contains SPF 50+ UVA protection which is chemical free sunscreen and paraben free.

Well, you probably know all the alphabetic face cream right from BB cream to EE cream but let me briefly explain what is CC cream then. CC cream stands for Color Control or Color Correcting cream and its function is to simply reduce the uneven skin tone or skin redness. Many claims that BB cream and CC cream are tinted moisturizers containing sun protection. In my opinion, CC cream is more of a new and an improved BB cream with a much higher UVA protection.

it cc cream formula

I feel that this CC cream is lighter than a BB cream. The consistency of this formula is perfect to be applied on the area that you needed it most. On top of that, it has an amazing smell to it and the texture blend beautifully to hide the skin imperfection.

So far, after a week of trying it out, I’m satisfied with the performance and it doesn’t cause any breakout whatsoever. It hides the redness beside my nose area and the pigmentation is incredible. All you need is a little formula and a little goes a long way. Anyways, I’m going to continue to wear this for awhile to see if there is any difference or changes to report back later.

it cc cream color swatch (2)

Hopefully this color swatch picture gives you a good look of the shade and consistency. There are five shades available from lightest to medium to tan and dark rich shades to choose from. Selling online at it Cosmetics for $38.00 a tube.

Overall, I’m happy with this CC+ cream and the appearance it gives on my makeup look. Will I purchase a regular size tube this summer. You bet I will (giggling)!.

Well, that’s it for my take on today’s CC+ cream and until next time, stay beautiful.

Have you tried it cosmetics’ lately? If yes which product did you picked?

Thanks for reading.

Missha Signature BB Cream |Review

 

I have been quite obsessed with BB Cream lately ever since I did my review on the Super BB cream. I’ll put the link below if you’ve miss my previous post.

Anyways I got this through online order and it arrives a few days ago. I’ve tried this BB Cream on me since I got it and I’m wearing it now today. The product I got is this Missha Signature Real Complete BB Cream with SPF 25+. Made in Korea.

missha bb cream

Missha M Signature Real Complete BB Cream in Light Pink Beige (net wt: 45 g) for US$29.00/CN$28.99 (now on special for CN24.64). It has an English translation at the back of the packaging which I think is super cool. It says here on the packaging “multi-function BB cream with perfect coverage, well adherence and long lasting. It also claims complete makeup lasting test for up to 12 hours.

missha bb cream spf 25+

This Korean brand Missha practices against animal testing which is a cruelty free product. Paraben free and non-chemical in this formula. It has SPF 25/PA++ and yay!!! you can wear BB cream in hot summer days without needing to worry about melt down..

First of all, let me talk about the packaging. This is an adorably designed plastic tube packaging. The material is made of 2 plastic layers. The inside layer has a kind of hot pressed flowers and the second layer is used to enhance this packaging with Missha logo and some Korean writing behind this tube packaging. Sorry I can’t read Korean but it has some English description on as well. It has a pump applicator which I really love. It’s feels very unique and luxurious looking.

missha

The formula has very nice consistency and it blends so well. I feel that this liquid BB cream looks powdery as I applied it on skin but it’s not cakey at all. This formula absorb so quickly that it feels lightweight as if I’m not wearing any cream on. And the scents is so freaking amazing. You really have to try this. Ohhh!!! I really love the smell of this BB cream.

Well, the shade I got is a little lighter than the shade I used to wear but this shade is definitely light for my skin tone but I need to mix with my other BB cream especially if I’m going to wear it in the summer since I got tan easily. The texture blend in so well and I just use gentle pat on my face. The whole time I’m wearing it, it didn’t budge or fade as the day wears off. My skin still look fresh and natural at the end of the day. This formula gives a sheer to medium coverage that leaves skin looking natural with abundant moisture to nourish your skin. The appearance performance is excellent.

color sacth missha

I love this BB cream because it has SPF25+ and this formula is water base which is gentle to the skin. It claims that it give perfect coverage effect and UV protection. Bravo!

The downside of this BB cream is the color toned is from pale to medium shades only and it stops there.

This is so embarrassing, I totally forgot to put the pictures of my first impression here.  So, don’t forget to check back for my next “FIRL” (first impression review look) tutorial. You can also follow me on facebook or twitter to get the latest posting updates.

Missha BB Cream is also available at Amazon and there are four shades to choose.

Again, I thank you very much for taking the time to read.

I’m super delighted when this package finally show up at my doorstep and without moment to loose I tried it out immediately and have been wearing it every single day. That was a week ago and oh boy, you can feel that your skin feels so soft and bright. All I can say is that I just saw a cupid shot an arrow and I’m falling head over toe with SKIN79 ❤  Here is our love story:-

super bb cream

“We walked together everyday, I can feel you so closed to me. You smell amazing and I love how soft and lightweight your kisses are when you planted them on my skin. Oh BB! My skin feels so wonderful and I noticed that my face brighten up every time you make contact. I can wear you the whole day and be happy with you by my side. We have so much fun together and one thing I want to tell you is that I’m so glad to have you in my life!”  

bb cream formula skin 79

Okay, in case if you have not heard of SKIN79 before – this is a Korean makeup brand which is popular in ‘Korea and has gained global popularity ever since their first BB cream to swamp North America and worldwide. This packaging comes in a freaking gorgeous hot pink cylinder metal container that just blow my mind. It is a pump method which I find quite sophisticated. The formula is not runny and it feels lightweight on skin. The consistency is more of a foundation but it blends beautifully.This BB smells awesome and leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft. You won’t feel like you’re wearing a BB cream at all. I’m telling you, you seriously need to try this.

The net wt: 40 g and I got this for $14.25 plus shipping at Amazon. Also available at SKIN79 website with six different color to choose from.

The great thing about this Super BB cream is that SKIN79 claims that it contains UV protection SPF 25, whitening ingredients and wrinkle improvement all triple functions in a bottle. It’s like the Disney movie “Aladdin” – Genie in the bottle” who grants you three wishes.

face comparison

Overall, this BB cream really impresses me by been extra soft and it gives a medium to full coverage. I didn’t layer up on this look. to see the effect when applied thin. It’s easily blendable and no problem with layering up a few notch to full coverage, I would say that this is a semi-matte to matte finish. I love love this BB cream to the moon and back. I highly recommend this.

Will I purchase? I will definitely repurchase. I’m satisfied over and beyond for the excellent quality and the incredible price. I recommend that you don’t miss out.

Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to read your comments below.
