Make Up Favorites

These are currently my favorite makeup favorites and must-haves.

1) Laneige BB Cushion (Pore Control) in 21 Natural Beige

What I like about this product:

a) It has a semi-matte finish, thus it works best for oily, oily-combination skin

b) It is water resistant – it has long lasting coverage

c) It has a cooling sensation. From what I learn, it cools the surface of the skin, which makes your foundation last longer.

Cons:

– Coverage is light to medium. (Not to worry, the coverage is build-able!)

You can view more info of the product here.

It can be purchased at Laneige Boutique, Robinson, Takashimaya, BHG Bugis.

2) YSL Forever Light Creator CC Creme in Lavender

CC  Cream, aka Color Correcting cream is used to reduce the appearance of redness and dullness. It is also used to improve uneven skin tone.

What I like about this product:

a) It is light weight and it does not feel like I am putting on extra makeup on my face

b) It blends very easily and the CC pigments evens out the skin to bring out natural looking radiant effect.

c) Creates a flawless texture. I chose Lavender to go for the natural glow look.

Con:

– Price

You can view more info of the product here.

Can be purchased at Takashimaya, Ion Orchard, Tangs

3) Urban Decay Good Karma Shadow Brush

Flawlessly applies, buffs and blurs your liquid, cream or powder foundation.

What I like about this product:

a) It works amazingly with any  liquid, cream or powder foundation and even concealers!

b) Soft Bristles. This product is said to have  a “optical blurring” effect. Therefore you apply your foundation, it  “buffs” and “blurs” it to a totally flawless finish!!

Cons

– Price, it cost around $35 (?). Considering there are other options out in the market (sponge, beauty blender)

You can view more info of the product here.

Can be purchased at any Sephora outlets

4) Anna Sui Face Protection Cream

It is used to prep your skin to have a perfect foundation application.

What I like about this product:

a) The smell

b) It can be used alone to achieve bright and moisturized skin.

c) It evens out my skintone and prep my skin for my makeup routine

Con

– Not available in SG. I got mine in Taiwan

5) Maquillage True Cheek

What I like about this product:

a) It is slim and compact. With a brush intact, it is convenient to carry around in my everyday makeup bag. I do not have to bring along an extra brush.

b) Color payoff is beautiful!

Con

– So far I am very pleased with this purchase! I guess the only con I can think of is that you cannot wash the brush.

Can be purchased at: BHG outlets, Takashimaya, Tangs

6) YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush in No 8

What I like about this product:

a) It has multiple uses. I used it as a both a lip gloss and a blush.

b) Pigmented colors

c) There are 12 shades available. You can mix and match the colors to create your own personalized unique colors!

Con
