I purchased this foundation through the mecca website and my first impression of this foundation is… this is a great foundation! I’ll copy paste what it said in the box for you:

“Born this way is an oil-free foundation that masterfully diffuses the line between makeup and skin. For coverage so undetectable, you can’t see the makeup and you can’t see imperfections—all that’s left is naturally radiant skin that looks like you were Born This Way.”

It is a medium to full coverage, so you can build it up easily. I like applying this foundation with a brush. I have super duper oily skin, so I did apply it with a beauty blender and I was hella oily in just 3 hours.

It has hyaluronic acid which means that it smoothens the appearance of lines and wrinkles, which is so true. It covers up all the imperfections I have but still looking like my skin. It didn’t feel cakey whatsoever.

Although it claimed to be oil free but I still have shiny forehead and t zone within a few hours after applying this foundation so I don’t think that I would claim this as oil free. That my con. But I like the formula, the packaging is so cute, but that’s not whats important. I’d rather buy the ugliest looking foundation but has the best formula. I don’t judge the book by its cover. This applies to buying makeup 🙂

Here’s the swatches for you guys. I got the shade sand as you can see that this shade is like the perfect golden tone. It’s not too yellow like some of my other foundation. It’s just right. This retails for 58AUD, so it is hella expensive. I mean almost as expensive as mac and makeupforever HD. But too faced is one of my fav company because it is certified cruelty free. 🙂

SO… will I purchase this foundation? Yes, PROVIDING that I haven’t found any foundation that is better than this one and more affordable.

I hope you find this review helpful and please let me know in the comments below what you think of this foundation and if you are interested getting this yourself 🙂

Until next time, my loves.

My CURRENT Skin Care Routine: OILY SKIN

Hi, beautifuls, how are you enjoying your weekend so far? I hope you’re having fun as always and if you are out and about don’t forget to take care of yo face when you come home. 🙂

Taking care of our face is very important and like they say, you have to have a nice canvas if you want your makeup to apply nicely. I so totally agree. My skin is oily. It is extremely oily in the T zone area and oily in the eyelids too. I have tried so many different skin care products, but this is the latest one that I’m trying out and I like it so far. It really leaves my skin matte longer.

my skin care go to
my skin care go to

They’re all from the brand origins. I chose that brand because it is the safest one I could find on the market, it has no paraben, no phenoxyethanol, no sulphates, and all that bad stuff. That is a HUGE point for me.Because skin care is what I use underneath my makeup. So I want it to be safe for my face. Okay, let’s dig in. I purchased the cleanser, moisturiser and eye cream.

DSC07429this is the cleanser. Origins Zero Oil face wash

DSC07428this is the moisturiser. Also the Zero Oil one.

DSC07427 and this little guy is the eye cream.

Now, for cleanser and moisturiser I’m not too fussy because my skin is not acne prone and it’s just an alright texture, so, most face wash will agree on my face, except for the one that I reviewed a few month ago, which I will link it right here. That one was just a nightmare. Anyway, this ginzing refreshing eye cream claims to reduce puffyness and dark circle under your eyes and I have been using it for a few months now and so far, so good. I can see how it cancels out the puffyness around my eyes, so I’ll keep using this until I ran out.

I recommend this product if you are trying out a new skin care product. I purchased this from mecca.com.au and they are not that expensive. The cleanser is about 30-32AUD, moisturiser around the same price and the eye cream was for 39 AUD but now the price has gone up to 44AUD. I take a look at the website and I was kind of disappointed that it went up 😦

Now, the big question is that will I repurchase this?

Yes 🙂

I hope you guys enjoy this mini review and my skin care routine for oily skin. Til next time.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY EYES TO MESMERISE: CLEOPATRA SWATCH AND REVIEW

Hey beautifuls. TGIF, am I right?

I’m bringing you a review of charlotte tilbury product, eyes to mesmerise in the shade cleopatra which is their cream eyeshadow. This shade is georgina. Seriously so beautiful and creamy and blendable, however, it didn’t stay put to my lid. After a few hours the edges faded and overall this is a disappointing product. 😦

This is me swatching the product

DSC07482 DSC07481 DSC07480

This is very pigmented and such a gorgeous shade, the problem is I have an extremely oily lids, so I have to let this one go… I’m selling this for $38, I bought this for $44 australian dollars, I am willing to pay for shipping around Australia if the postage costs under 10 dollars. I haven’t made a dent at all and the condition is still brand new pretty much. I didn’t even use my finger to dip in to this product. I used eyeshadow brush. I always do that everytime I swatched shadows for the first time just in case I ended up not liking it.

Anyway, that’s all for this review there’s not much to say at all really… Other than I’m disappointed because I forked a lot of dollars for this product, but, eh, what can you do… Sorry to end this on such a negative tone but I love you guys and stay tune for my next post! 🙂

FINAL DAY: QUOTE CHALLENGE #MINDBLOWING QUOTE & MAKEUP TRANSFORMATION from my fave movie, Cloud Atlas

Hey beautifuls! I am so sad that this challenge has come to an end… But I save the best quote for the last. This quote is from my favorite movie EVER: Cloud Atlas, starring Tom Hanks, James D’Arcy, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Hugo Weaving… Just all star cast members. Outstanding in every way. It is a 3 hour movie but I loved every minute of it. It’s from the best selling novel with the same title and this was nominated for Oscar I believe or Golden Globe, something like that. The makeup in this movie is INSANE!

Check out Halle Berry as a Chinese DOCTOR! WTF?

that's halle berry!!
that’s halle berry!!

Halle Berry as a white woman on the right pic.

Hugo Weaving as a woman. LOL. He played a scary woman (top right) and him as a Korean (bottom left)

The cast went on their days with filming and they had no idea who is playing what during the scene because the makeup artist didn’t tell them what characters are they playing. LOL.

They criticised this as well, they were like how come you put white actors as Korean. Why not cast a Korean actor? Well, fuck you. If you think like that, it means you didn’t even watch the movie because that’s kind of the whole point of the movie… that everything is connected, everyone you meet in life can reflect your past, present and future through reincarnations. So of course they’re going to use the same actors are you freaking kidding me? Best of all, guys, the quotes in this movie are to die for!

My favorite is this one:

cloud atlas

Check that out, by each crime and every kindness we birth our future. Isn’t it so true, you guys? Our lives are not our own, we are bound to others. We don’t live on our own we need to be social, we need to mingle and blend in as a society and what kind of future do we want? Do we want a civilised one without any racism, with equality for both men and women, or do we want chaos and filled with hatred? WE have the power to change our future, we have the power to lead and to take charge.

Thank you all for reading my quote challenge from day one. This is a fun way to communicate between us bloggers and if you are tagged to do this challenge, all you gotta do is to post one quote a day and tag 3 people each day to do the challenge.
