Review: FS Cosmetics Powder Blush

Since I love blushes, I got so excited when I saw the FS Cosmetics Powder Blush in Warm Chiffon in my May 2015 BDJ Box: Kiss Dry Goodbye! Another blush to try out!!! 😀

Well, not as a blush. Read on why…

Product Description (taken from the FS Cosmetics website):

Silky-soft powder blush blends smoothly and easily for a streak-free, natural finish look.

Given that this is a blush, I would love to see the shade from the outside. If it has a transparent top cover, it would be better. Mirror dilemma? It could be placed underneath the powder where you flip it up to see the mirror.

When I saw the shade name, I thought that Warm Chiffon would be a rosy type of color. Well, it’s not. Upon opening the compact, I saw that the color is a medium, skin-toned like shade. I immediately thought that this would not work well as a blush. It can work for contouring.

With that, I think that blushes should have shades that could really be used as a blush. For me, it is kind of confusing to see blush shades that should rather be used as a contour powder.

The compact also includes a brush inside. Since this is intended to be used as a blush, I think that this is fine. However, given that the shade is not so much for that purpose, I cannot use this. I will rather go for the usual contour brushes.

Review: Pond’s Flawless White BB+ Cream

I love using BB Creams because it can give a flawless look on my skin while maintaining its natural, youthful glow. Well, think of those famous Korean actors and actresses. The look of their skin is one thing that a lot of us envy. Well, a BB Cream can do the job to achieve that. Apparently, there are some skin types that seem to repel the formulation of a BB Cream. There are some who get breakouts afterwards. Some get super oily by midday. Others don’t like the sticky feel of the BB Cream when it combines with the hot weather here in our country.

Luckily, I discovered a product which has that same effect of the typical BB Cream but also answers the skin concerns stated above. It is the Pond’s Flawless White BB+ Cream in Light. I am so happy that I got this product from my March 2015 BDJ Box: Pond’s. 😀

  • Compared to other BB Creams, it is less likely to cause pimples because it’s less sticky and helps control oil the whole day. No need to apply powder afterwards.

Review: Pixy UV Whitening Compact Powder Coverlast

As a mom, there are times when rushing in the morning becomes so inevitable. This is because upon waking up, my kids spend some bonding time with me before they eat their breakfast. Sometimes, I lose track of the time that I have to rush preparing myself to go to work. I normally do a complete makeup routine but given that I have less time in my hands, I have to eliminate most of the steps. Apart from that, my adorable little daughters go over my makeup stash creating a beautiful mess when I am doing my makeup. Haha! Oh, the wonders of being a mom… 😀

This is why I got so lucky to discover a product that is suited for this kind of situation. It is a powder that gives full coverage, covers skin imperfections and provides a flawless finish the same way a foundation, concealer and setting powder would do. In addition to that, it takes lesser time to apply. It is the Pixy UV Whitening Compact Powder Coverlast in Natural. I got this from my January-February 2015 BDJ Box: Kawaii Must-Haves. 😉
