Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

This moisturizer picks up where all the others left off. While some felt too heavy or too much like actual foundations, the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer literally melted into my skin when I was putting it on. The texture was that soft. The other thing that this tint has going for it is that it’s […]

Duwop Revolotion Face

The second tinted moisturizer I tried was the much-talked about Duwop Revolution Face. This one comes in four colours and the last one is a dark tan which means that darker skin tones have an option too! The moisturizer also has an SPF of 15 which makes it a great multi–tasker. Straight out of the […]

MAC Select Tint

MAC Select Tint is what I tried first – this tinted moisturizer picks up where some other brands leave off since it is offered in so many colours. Like the rest of the MAC line, the shades are spot on and since this is a sheer tint, it’s easy to find one that works. If […]

Project!

I’m a girl who loves tinted moisturizer, and really, what’s not to love? It evens out your skin tone without mask-like coverage.

Well the new whipped version is just as good. The shade selection is the same which is a relief because finding that perfect shade […]

Dior DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation

Somehow, emails promoting DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation keep finding their way into my inbox. The catch? They promote a video but unfortunately my Internet connection is just too slow for me to be able to watch it. Finally, I just had to check out this foundation for myself. The bad news?

Foundation Trick

A little while ago, I had a tv appearance and had my makeup done by a makeup artist hired by the studio. Now, I don’t know her name but she had worked on movies and tv shows before, but she was still relatively young. The studio where the TV show was being shot preferred the […]

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

I recently tried Estee Lauder’s new foundation – Double Wear, stay-in-place powder makeup. Firstly, the colours in this foundation are amazing. I quickly found a match that was a 100% match to my skin (Tawny, in case you’re wondering), swirled a powder brush in the compact and dusted it on. Instantly, my skin was even-toned […]
