M.A.C Studio Finish Concealer & Lunasol Intellectual Water Foundation Review

Hi, Everyone!
Today I will review two products, which are M.A.C Studio Finish Concealer & Lunasol Intellectual Water Foundation (which is also known as Modeling Water Liquid Foundation). I know I said before I will do a review of Lunasol Water Cream Foundation, but apparently my mom bought this one :O Oh wells. I envy her! There's a Kanebo counter in Jakarta that sells Lunasol. Ahhh I want them to set up a counter here in Australia! Now onto the first review.


I managed to buy myself a pot of M.A.C Studio Finish Concealer in NC30. I didn't buy the Bobbi Brown Concealer because I think it's too creamy and I don't like the packaging... So I bought this one. I actually hate going to M.A.C counter because It's always crowded and they put a very loud music so I have to literally shout to talk with the SA. Ugh. She put on NW25 and NC30 on me and NW25 is a bit light on me. NC30 is soo dark and she said it's my color.



So I bought it for $32 and when I got home I tried it on again... and It's too yellow and dark. What the? Argh I'm dissapointed. Even though I'm Asian, my skin is not really yellow and has a bit of pinkish undertone into it so when I apply this concealer on my face it looks like I have visible yellow weird spots all over my face!


See? It's too yellow! Argh.. Such a waste of money (Again!) so in order to use it up so I don't feel bad, I use it for my forehead. It looks quite good for my forehead because my forehead is darker than my face (my cheeks are fair/pink). This concealer has a great staying power but it's a bit cakey. I love the coverage but I still love love my Prescriptives Camouflage Concealer. Read the review here. It's still in my HG list. So I will rate this concealer 3.5/5

Now onto the Foundation!
This one is called Lunasol Intellectual Water Foundation (bought this at the Kanebo counter) but it seems in the website it's called Modeling Water Liquid Foundation. It has slightly different packaging. The new one has pump (i think?) and this one has no pump. But It seems that the formula is the same. The shade that I got is YO02.


The packaging is very sleek and tiny. But you have to be careful not to spill everything out.


As you can see from the picture above, the texture is really watery and runny (55% water) and It's really lightweight. The color is a perfect match too. This is a picture of it blended on to my hand.


I love this so much! I'm actually glad I got this one. It doesn't set into lines and It looks very natural. The coverage is not amazing, but It's better than BB Cream. I love it. I tried using hands, but using MAC 187 stippling brush is a lot better. My face becomes so flawless.
Rating : 4/5 . Why not 5/5? Well It's because my T-zone gets oily faster than when I'm using Missha BB Cream :) But nevertheless a product worth buying.

I haven't put FOTD for a long time, I'm sorry! It's because I don't really think my FOTD are special.. It's just normal makeup.. Hahaha. But I will put a picture of my everyday makeup! (picture taken with Photobooth.. sorry)



BTW IM DYEING MY HAIR BLACK SOON~


Love ya all!

eBay Haul!

Hi Everyone!
As you can see, I changed the layout of this blog completely!
I didn't want to change it before, but somehow I messed it up so I had to change it all completely!
So, what do you think about it ?

Anyway, I bought some stuff from eBay recently!
Btw in this post I use my new 35mm nikkor lens! LOVE!


So the list :
1. 4 Boxes of Taiwanese eyelashes (1opairs/ea) BUY HERE
2. Dariya fringe pad
3. L'egere White Multi BB Cream
4. KAO CAPE Air Arrage Hair Spray - Airy

So let's start from the L'egere White Multi BB Cream.
After hearing rave reviews from fellow bloggers, Fuz' review made me want to buy it!


So this is the unblended swatch of L'egere BB Cream.


It's the darkest shade of BB Cream ever!
But when it's blended...


It magically changes shade into the perfect skin shade ever! (my skin that is)
Im impressed! The smell is not too strong, unlike Missha BB Perfect Cover.
I've been using this BB Cream for two days, and all I can say is...
Oil control is so much better than Missha, and it feels very light on my skin.
It doesn't crease, it's OMG perfect BB Cream! I was soo happy but then...


...it broke me out.


What a waste of money. I liked that BB Cream! *SOB*
So I will rate this 1/5 but If I didn't break out I would prolly give 4.5/5 rating lols.

The next thing I'm going to review is the:
KAO CAPE Air Arrage Hair Spray - Airy (website)


It claims to:
1. Builds your hairstyle without hardening hairs, allowing us to re-style with flexibilty and natural movements with total freedom at any time.
2. With the 'air keep' formula, it instantly increases the airy feeling of hair
3. Light and non-greasy, leave your hair a natural look.

There. I just copy-pasted it.
The bottle is surprisingly smaller than I thought it would be, It's just slightly bigger than my hand. But it actually works. It doesn't harden my hair but it keeps my hair styled for maybe 4 hours? I suck at styling hair so maybe It's not this product's fault. I will give this product 3.5/5 star! I love the smell, It's not too strong. I love how It doesn't make my hair sticky & it looks so natural. The reason why I didn't give higher star is because of the staying power.


Anyone here can recommend a better styling product / hairspray?
I heard bumble&bumble is good. How is it? (It's like 50bucks here in Sydney, we have the most expensive makeup & beauty products ever.. It's double the usual price!)

Here are some camwhoring pictures of me after I tried out the KAO hairspray, hehe.


Oh and also I'm loving the fake lashes I got! It's super cheap and It comes in 4 styles.
But I love the 'crisscross' style the most. It's natural. I rarely use one whole lash!
I always cut them in half :)


That's all and I hope its useful for you guys!
I can't wait to receive my Lunasol Water Cream Foundation & its base!
I shouldn't look at other blogger's hauls.. It's so damaging!


Seeya!

SORRY! UPDATES!

Sorry for abandoning this blog for few months :(
Just an update so this blog won't look so dull!

I can't wait to go to melbourne, just 14 more days left! I already found a flat (it's a studio and it's just across my uni!) Ughhhh I'm so excited, but I'm also scared at the same time.. You know.. It will be a whole new city, whole new environment, whole new university, whole new friends too! waaaa. It's like the first day of highschool all over again :P Haha sorry I sound like a baby! Just to update. no i don't want to abandon this blog, & now I just bought nikkor 35mm lens! So I can take sharper pics (esp products) in the future! looking forward to it.

I'm going to go late night shopping today with wei so I think I'm gonna search for a good
concealer, preferably those ones in a pot. Im tired of tube concealer. been using the same one for the past 3 years (prescriptives camouflage concealer) Its my 1st concealer and im tired of it! I wanna search for another one! perhaps its better? I'm thinkin of buying bobbi brown creamy concealer. It looks good! its pricey though. Probably around similar price as the prescriptives concealer ($40). and a good brush.. Im using mac #194 brush and its abit flimsy because I think I washed it the wrong way and im being too rough ;/ maybe I will buy bobbi brown concealer brush too...

So thanks for reading my blog..I hope I dont bore you guys.. I promise I will review whatever concealer i bought today! Thank you! Just to spice up this entry, I will add some pictures. Few days ago my friend's friends asked me to model for their portfolio. So I did! These are the 'behind the scenes' taken with my camera. The location is : glebe tramshed ! When we went there we managed to take a few shots after we were asked to leave. :/ There were a commercial shooting going on for 'So you think you can dance' (Australian)


This was taken at 'the rocks' a candid when I tried to rip my fakelashes off.
It was damn itchy.


My friend took this photo when I was calling my sis.


After we got kicked out we took few shots outside the tramshed.


At the tramshed. A lot of spiderwebs.


Me with one of the photographer!


And these are my fav from them!
I like this one but my fringe parted :(


This is also my fav.


T love this one! i edited the color ;/

Hehe after seeing this pic..
MY HAIRCOLOR SUX!
Its like three toned now.
From this root and previous root...
