Sunday Stash Shopping #27: Mixing Foundations

Do you have the urge to do your experiments sometimes? I like my Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup, but I also want more coverage to tone down the redness on my skin. I like my Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, but at times, I’d like for it to feel lighter on my skin. Also, the MUFE HD foundation is 3 years old, and I’m giving it another month before throwing it out. Sometimes I do wonder if I need to. I keep it in my drawer which is cool, dry and dark, the smell remained the same, and so is the texture. My skin doesn’t react badly to it, and basically, everything’s just normal. I know some of you might be freaking out right now, that I’m using an old foundation, but don’t worry. This and the Mat Velvet + foundation will be thrown out after this post. I bought both at the same time, and the Mat Velvet + is too heavy for my skin already. I used to prefer full coverage, but not anymore :-)

Review: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine in Mischievous Rose

I’ve had this lipstick for a few months now. At that time, Estee Lauder launched its new line of lipstick in the US and Europe – Pure Color Envy Sculpt. I was quite excited to try those pigmented lipsticks, but found out that in Asia, we get a different version. We get the Pure Color Envy Shine. I don’t know the difference, to be honest. I don’t have a Pure Color Envy Sculpt to compare. However, from pictures and reviews online, these are definitely different, not just the name.

Review: My Favourite Moisturizers Lately. Dior Capture Totale Intensive Night Restorative Creme and Multi-Perfection Emulsion

Such a long post title. Basically, this is a review of both day and night moisturizers I’ve been using from Dior Capture Totale line. I’ve been using them on and off for the past 1 year actually, and haven’t got round to talking about it. It’s not because they’re not good, but it’s because I really wanted to test them out under different skin conditions, and I tell you right now, they’re good :-)

Let’s first talk about the day moisturizer which I use.

Femme Boulevard: Vamp

It’s still end of July, and in some places, it’s still summer, and in others, it’s winter. We decided to do something different, and by that, we’re feeling vampy. The first thing I thought of was to pull out my darker lipsticks. How exciting :-) Then, I was debating whether to keep my eyes minimal, or to go all out dark. I haven’t been playing much with eye shadows for a few months now, and I took this opportunity to actually use some of my eye shadows! Dark eyes it is. I was going to use black only but….. it kinda got out of hand. Heh!

For the base, I wanted something flawless, so I used my newly purchased Lancome Blanc Miracle SPF50 liquid foundation, set with my well loved Lancome Maqui Blanc Miracle powder foundation. To avoid looking like a goth, I added some pink using Dior Rosy Glow blush.

Review: Bobbi Brown CC Cream SPF 35+++

It’s the alphabet cream again. You guys should know by now that Bobbi Brown BB Cream is my favourite. I’ve been featuring it in most of my FOTD posts because well, I really like it! So when I got the chance to test the CC Cream, I was not as skeptical as I’d be. CC Creams are colour correcting creams and Bobbi Brown promises instantly healthy looking even toned skin with the use of this CC Cream as a base. I was sent Pale Nude (there is also Warm Nude for darker complexions) and this is my review.
