My first CC cream review is from Rachel K and it works really well on my skin. It has more coverage, and to be honest, it could pass for BB cream, only with lighter texture. Now, this CC cream from Clinique is something different. It is newly launched and you might have seen it in counters already. The one I have is for colour correcting. I was sent Fresh Peach, and here is what I think.
Some of you might already be familiar with Vanity Trove. They recently ventured into Malaysia, and I received their February box for review. Beauty boxes are pretty established overseas, and now, we are seeing more boxes readily available locally. Before we start the unboxing, let me just tell you that I’m a beauty box skeptic. I personally prefer to go buy my own product. While surprises can be lovely, I am also very picky, hence random surprises are usually misses for me. Let’s see how Vanity Trove February box surprised me.
Do liquid foundations sometimes just sit on your skin and no matter how you buff it in, it just refuses to blend into the skin? Do powder foundations make you look all cakey and well, powdery? Do foundations look patchy and especially oily around your T-zone by midday? I experienced all 3 before, and Dior Radiant Base Skin-Refining Pro Lighting Makeup Base got rid of them!
Chanel Le Blanc Light Revealing Whitening Makeup Base SPF35 PA+++ is a mouthful. I’ll probably call it by different shortened versions here, so don’t mind me. If you’re uninitiated, Le Blanc is the whitening line of Chanel. I’ve used the moisturiser and serum with mixed results. I loved the texture of the moisturiser, but the serum did nothing much for me. So anyway, I wanted a makeup base that would brighten and even out my complexion and I was recommended The Lys by the beauty consultant. The one with the white bottle.
Oily lids? Eyeshadows creasing on you? Eye colours fade after the 3rd hour? I usually have this problem. My lids are oily and even long wearing eyeshadows crease and fade on me… that is, if I didn’t prime my eyes. Is an eye primer so important? If you have oily lids, yes. It makes a difference. I have tried a few, not necessarily an eye primer per se, could be cream shadows as well and these are my go-to products.
