Product Review: Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Super Charged Foundation

Its finally here!
Marc Jacobs has finally arrived in Malaysia!
Bless the makeup gods!

Personally I am so glad that Malaysia is opening up to more foreign brands from other countries
It’s good for us as the consumer because it gives us more choices to choose from
The power of consumerism I say!

Product Review: Bloop de Paris Flawless Cover Foundation

Bloop de Paris Flawless Cover Foundation

Hi Guys!
I’m back with a foundation review!
Today its the
Bloop de Paris Flawless Cover Foundation
I don’t know why there isn’t a lot of reviews on Bloop products
My use of their products has been very nice for me
I feel that this brand doesn’t get as much recognition as others
Which is a sad thing
So without further ado
Here are the pictures:
Product comes in a matte black squeeze tube
The same size with the Holika Holika BB Cream and the Garnier BB Cream
Which I review it HERE
Piece of advice when buying this foundation
It oozes out none stop!
My color is 204
Similar to my MAC shade NC20
According to Bloop
This is a light-weight liquid foundation that gives moderate coverage
Which should be meaning light to medium coverage
Gives a flawless matte finish
Smooth away wrinkles and repair age related skin damage
It also contains Vitamin E and UV filters
This is how it looks when it freshly applied
It suits my skin fairly well
True to its name
It does give light to medium coverage
Gives a semi matte finish
I applied my holy grail loose powder and touched up with some concealer
I also used a primer before applying the foundation
This is how it looks like after 6 hours
The oil on my face is peeking through and there is no fade
The foundation is a yellow toned liquid with a runny texture
This is unblended
Slightly blended
Fully blended
It does have a smell to it
Kind of a really clean water kind of scent
You think of very filtered water when you smell it
Texture 4/5
Oil control 4/5
Colour 3/5 Still a bit too light
Smell 3/5
Packaging 3/5
Blendability 4/5
I like this foundation
It evens out my skintone and let my natural skin show through
It gives the benefits it promises
I don’t know much about the anti-aging though
But I certainly feel a connection with this foundation and I feel that I will go back to this often
So why not try it?
Bloop is having a promotion anyway!
That’s all for today

Product Review: Revlon Beyond Natural 2-Way Foundation

Revlon Beyond Natural 2-Way Foundation

Hello my fellow beauty junkies!
Today I shall review a Revlon product!
Which is sadly discontinued because they have my shade
When you find something that you like
How come it always becomes discontinued!?
So here are some pictures of the product:
Awesome sponge!
Can’t see it right?
The product comes in a compact that is similar with the Revlon New Complexion
It contains 9 grams of product
and is very lightweight to carry around
The product itself is very creamy and smooth
It applies beautifully and I don’t experiences any snagging from it
It does not have any strong fragrance
It just has that powder smell
It gives medium coverage at most
I do apply concealer thickly beforehand before I apply this
I do recommend that you apply a primer beforehand first though
This foundation has very weak oil control properties
It only controls my oil for 2 hours WITHOUT primer
However with primer it can control my oil up to 4 hours
I do set it with a setting spray after I apply it
So it looks much more natural
This is how it looks like FRESHLY APPLIED on my face:
Has a satin finish to it
This is after 2 hours:
Well it lasted me for about 5 hours only
So I guess it isn’t that good for oily skin people like me
But what do you expect from a powder foundation?
I still prefer liquid foundations
So to conclude:
Tecture 5/5
Coverage 3/5
Smell 5/5
Packaging 3/5
Would I buy this again?
How? Its discontinued LOL!

Product Review: Stila Perfect & Correct Foundation

Stila Perfect & Correct Foundation

Hey guys!
I’m going off my track today to review for you guys a foundation!
So for those who don’t like BB creams
Actually I still think BB cream is better compared to foundations because of its benefits
But of well
Everyone has different opinions and needs
So here is the picture of the product:
Kinda looks like DNA doesn’t it
My shade is fair like I am XD
As you guys can see from the pictures
It looks like the foundation is swirled into a primer and moisturiser
It looks like DNA XD
The bottle is 11cm in height and 3cm in width
So it is quite small
However it contains the standard 30ml of product!
This is how the foundation looks like:
Slightly blended
Fully blended
Stila has 8 shades for this foundation
Yes I know it is a small range
However the foundation has light to medium coverage so you still can adjust it to your skin tone
As you guys can see from the pictures
The coverage is actually quite sheer
You can top it to light or medium coverage if you want
But it may look cakey so yeah
According to the packaging of the foundation
This foundation gives you a youthful and flawless complexion
It is infused with a bio-available mineral complex
So it improves the look and feel of your skin
It is swirled with a advanced moisturising primer that nourishes your skin all day
It also contains patent antioxidants and chamomile*thumbs up for chamomile*
It is high definition, high performance and long lasting
The foundation has a typical foundation smell to it
A very light foundation scent that is similar to MAC Studio Fix Fluid
It has no SPF so it looks good in pictures
Like this:
Without powder
With powder
AS we all know
SPF can sometimes reflect light making us look like we’re dead for a century
It is easy to blend
IT IS very blendable!
It glides on my skin with no problem at all!
It does control my oil for about 3 hours with powder
So I don’t think this is a very good oil controlling foundation
Those with very oily skin (like me) please take note!
It is quite moisturising and it gives a cooling sensation when applied to the face
I do notice that my skin feels like it is absorbing the product
So I don’t know whether is that good or not
Meaning that when Stila said it contains ingredients that are good for your skin
It should be true then
This foundation hasn’t break me out
I don’t notice any breakout after using this for a month
So it should be all good
Packaging 5/5 SWIRLY!
Texture 5/5
Blendability 4/5
Coverage 2.5/5
Smell 2/5
So what kind of people do i recommend this foundation to?
People who are looking a light coverage foundation that photographs nicely and for people who likes a hydrating foundation
Don’t worry guys!
I’ll have more updates soon!
