review ... Jane Iredale Amazing Base® Mineral Foundation SPF 20



hey y'all ... it has been the longest time since my last review of any products ... 
got this from my sis together with a brush hehe ... :p

okie down to biz ... 


JANE IREDALE .. product from USA and they are all made of minerals. (good for sensitive/problem skin)



Descriptions from website :
An incredible loose mineral foundation with UVA/UVB broad-spectrum sun protection. The look is creamy and luminous. The feel is like silk.

• Provides exceptional coverage of any distraction including redness and brown spots
• Free of oil, talc, dyes and parabens
• Ideal for those who suffer from skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea
• UVA/UVB SPF 20 gives broad-spectrum sun protection
• Very water-resistant formula


Personal opinion :

- powder is finely jet milled and doesn't look powdery despite layering (a good thing)
- easy to blend
- tips : go light handed for sheer coverage and you can always layer if extra coverage is needed
- a lot of shades to choose from
- PRICEY! selling @ >USD60 for a 0.37oz (different prices available online and I cant tell you the exact price coz i am getting this for free hehehehe)
- good for GUYS who want to look more radiant and an even skintone but doesnt look all made up
- packaging is a bit errrrr not so nice (personally I like black better hehe that explains why i love MAC)


not so sure if this is available in Malaysia though ... a bit busy to shop around lately hehehe
if any of you have seen this brand anywhere in Msia please do let me know or post the prices and location here :) thank you thank you

Beauty Blender + MARIO DEDIVANONIC


Now you can look like a movie star without the pricey services of a major make up artist. Introducing Beautyblender, the ultimate make up sponge applicator. Invented by top Hollywood make up artists Rea Ann Silva and Veronica Lorenz, Beautyblender has been created to leave you with a professional finish and a flawless complexion.

Beautyblender’s patent-pending elliptical shape makes application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with stunning ease. Its suede texture is sensual to the touch and its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your make up dazzling and undetectable. Beautyblender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free.


How

Blend your way to a flawless face! Seeing make up is the first sign of an amateur application. Beautyblender was created without edges in order to eliminate visible lines and streaks. So go ahead, experiment fearlessly with your Beautyblender and discover the many ways its unique shape will set you free!

Bounce Beautyblender against your face when applying make up. Bouncing, called stippling in the make up world, blends make up without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin. Use Beutyblender's pointed side for hard-to-reach spots like around the nose and mouth, and under the eyes. Use the round base for foundation and blush on the larger areas of your face such as your forehead, cheeks and chin.

If you apply make up with your fingers you'll find that Beautyblender will smooth and refine your make up to provide a clean finish.

Use Beautyblender damp when applying wet/dry make up. When Beautyblender is wet it is normal for it to expand to nearly twice its original size. Wash after use and place in the Beautyblender insert pedestal to dry. Beautyblender should not come in contact with extreme heat of any kind.

If you have problem skin Beautyblender works to cover blemishes. Use the pointed end and the stipple and twist technique to work make up into depressed areas of the face. The stippling and twisting action feathers out the make up's edges, leaving a perfect finish.



"Beautyblender helps the average woman get a perfect application every time!"

“Modernize the way you make up.”

"Looking great has never been so easy!"


priced at @ USD19.90

REVIEW >> Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup



disclaimer : this review is solely based on my personal opinion of this product and you might beg to differ.

OKIE DOKIE ! i am going to break this review into 2 parts :
  1. overall product specs
  2. personal opinion
Part 1 :
This product comes in 6 shades to match your skintone.
Lightweight and easy to apply.
Product should easily blend in to your original skin color and appears NATURAL as if you're not wearing anything at all.
Matte finish.
Claims to provide glow to skin although despite the matte finish.

Retailing @ RM140 - 30ml.
Interested, please look for Make-Up Artist @ Parkson Pavilion - Karen

Hehehehe here comes the interesting part : PERSONAL opinion :)

2nd disclaimer LOL! : this is a matter of preference ... you will either like or hate the product ...

The product is too MATTE for my liking. (I prefer a more luminous finish)
The finishing is too powdery and you can basically skip applying powder altogether.
Range of colours are too limited and you might find it hard to get the correct shade.
Comparing an apple to apple, I personally find Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation does a better job.
Light coverage, even out skintones and if you need extra coverage either layer the product or go for concealer (thats what concealer is for anyway hehe) .... word of advise, you hv to be extra careful on layering else you are gonna look like wearing a mask on :p
