Maybelline SuperStay 24H Full Coverage Foundation Review

Maybelline recently reformulated and launched a new version of the SuperStay Full Coverage Foundation. It used to come in cylindrical glass bottle but now it comes in a rectangular bottle with a pump! I have not tried the old version but I have heard a lot of good things about the foundation. I am all about full coverage foundations for oily skin! This retails for $11.99 on Ulta and Amazon at the moment but will hit stores in January 2018. I believe it has launched in Europe already but the shade system is a little different. There are currently 16 shades available in the US. 
I use 120 Classic Ivory in the Fit Me Matte + Poreless range and that is a pretty spot-on match for me. I am NC20/Laneige #21 with neutral warm undertones and oily combo skin. I got the shade 112 Natural Ivory because I got it off ebay and this was the only light shade available at that time. It's a bit more pink-grey toned than the fit me classic ivory but I can pull it off. It just looks a little brighter…

ColourPop Holiday 2017 Collection Swatches & Review

It's that time of the year again! This year's holiday collection looks so dreamy and magical, just like how Christmas is! There were 2 rounds of launches this year. The first round went up on Sephora too and consisted of the Semi Precious Palette, Golden State of Mind Palette, Feeling Fine Lip Trio, You're A Gem Lip Trio, Amber Crystal Collection and 3 Super Shock Shadows (Fluffy, Bouncy Revolution). I wasn't too impressed with the launch so I only got the You're A Gem lip trio and the super shock shadows.  This is the packaging of the lip products. It is a very dreamy ombre that goes all over the box. The texts are in a foiled gold. There are 4 Ultra Glossy Lips and 10 Ultra Matte Lips in this launch.
This is how the tube looks like. It has a gold cap and sparkly gold flecks decorated all over the tube.

Lay-Z (Nude with Gold Glitter) This is a really nice lip gloss with a ton of gold and hot pink glitter. It does have some pigmentation to it so it gives a nice tin…

LA Colors Truly Matte Foundation Review

Which oily/oily combo skinned makeup junkie wouldn't love a matte full coverage foundation? I reviewed this on my YouTube channel a couple of weeks ago when this product was launched in the US. It retails for 6USD but I recently found it on a Watsons pop-up for $9.90 in Singapore, which is a really great price because it is pretty close to the converted price.  This comes in 14 shades and I use the second lightest shade CLM352 Natural. I think it is a pretty close match to my NC20/Laneige #21 skintone. The next shade darker seems to be really dark and a huge jump but I generally think that the range is catered more towards tan-dark skin tones. Ingredients list: Perhaps due to the low cost nature of this product, they have decided to use parabens as a form of preservatives. I haven't come across many reviews that highlight this but so if you are sensitive or cautious about parabens then this foundation is not for you.
