She said: "I want to see ALL of your foundations! Then tell me, out of all, which ONE is totally your favorite! (If you dont do this tag, you will get a huge zit the next day)"
haha no one wants huge zit the next day!!! So I'm doing this tag as soon as I can to avoid my potential zits :p Just kidding hehe :p
So my current stash of foundations, BB creams, tinted moisturizers, and all things base makeup:
From left to right (top row) -
1. Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream
2. L'egere Multi White BB Cream
3. L'egere Water Drop Shiny Pearl BB Cream
4. Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer
5. Everyday Minerals Semi-Matte Mineral Foundation
6. Physician's Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Loose Powder
7. Jane Be Pure Mineral Powder
Bottom row -
8. Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse
9. Rimmel Recover
10. Rimmel Lasting Finish Mineral Enhanced Formula
I no longer use number 6 to 9. Those are the drugstore products I had when I was still a makeup noob and didn't wear makeup as often. Those are just sitting in my drawers nowadays.
These are the ones I still use often nowadays:
I used to use Everyday Minerals' mineral powder foundation everyday, until I discovered BB creams. Now the mineral foundations have been sitting there collecting dust and BB creams are the ones I reach for most often everyday.
I still have so much Everday Minerals foundation laying around, but the good thing is they don't expire as fast as the liquid/cream ones right?
So which one is my favorite you might ask?
Of course the L'egere Multi White BB Cream! It matches my skintone well, doesn't feel heavy, controls oil on my face well, and applies smoothly and easily. This is definitely a re-purchase. Thanks to Fuz for introducing me to this :)
Initial Review on Korres Olive Stones Scrub
A few of you asked me to talk about my impression on this product. I got it for a super super discounted price on Friday. I tried it immediately during shower that night.
The product is for oily and combination skin.
The olive stones cleanse the pores, removing sebum and dead cells, and giving immediate radiance to the skin. It contains ground olive stones, olive tree and calendular active extracts, as well as active aloe. It also claims to be dermatologically tested, mineral oil free, silicone free, propylene glycol free, and ethanolamine free.
The product comes out creamy with little pieces of ground up olive stones. It doesn't have any strong smell. I can't really tell what kind of smell it is, it has a really light fragrance, nothing too strong.
After gently scrubing this on my face, and rinsing off, my face felt immediately smoother and clean, like what you expect after exfoliating. It didn't hurt my skin like the harsh/coarser St. Ives Apricot Scrub from the drugstore. I liked the results, but the product is nothing spectacular. I wouldn't advice using this exfoliator more than once a week though since over exfoliating can harm your skin! For the price I paid for, I think it's TOTALLY worth it. But Sephora sells these at about $20 for a 40 mL (1.35 Fl. Oz) small tube....I am sure the product will last a while because just a pea sized amount would be sufficient every time. But if I have to pay full price for it, maybe I'd do more research on whether if there are better/cheaper alternatives first. I'll keep using this and let you know if my opinion changes after more uses.
