Review: Shiseido UV Protective Foundation (Liquid and Compact)

Makeup junkies should keep in mind that the finish of the makeup should not be the only concern for buying a specific product. We should also take into consideration that the products we are using are also taking care of our skin.

The current summer heat could result to having a sweaty and oily face when we are exposed under the sun. Aside from that, there are dangers brought about by long hours of sun exposure. Although we are advised to stay indoors when the sun is out, there are times when it is inevitable for us not to get out. This is why it is really important to use products that have sunscreen protection.

Shiseido’s extensive research on sunscreen protection for their products is based on three development points:

Having those factors included in their products, Shiseido released new foundations that address our concerns with regards to saying hello to Mr. Sun.

I am super lucky because I got two out of three of these newly released foundations during the Sip & See of Shiseido’s SS2014 Collection: the Shiseido UV Protective Liquid and Compact Foundations in Light Ochre. 😀

Review: Za-Cosmetics True White Plus Two-Way Foundation

Setting your base makeup is really important so as to make sure that your skin would look flawless throughout the day. Since it is the last step in attaining a good base, I am into powder foundations that could give a good coverage and leave a radiant look but should still look natural on me. Good thing I found Za-Cosmetics True White Plus Two-Way Foundation in 21. Just like the Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover, it comes with a case and a refill. I like products that have refills since it can save you more money in the long run. 🙂

There are two regular powder foundation cases of Za-Cosmetics…

and for Perfect Fit Two-Way Foundation

However, when Za-Cosmetics released their limited edition foundation case (designed  by Japanese illustrator, Naho Ogawa), of course, I chose that case over their regular ones. 😉

Review: Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover

For this post, I will be featuring my current favorite powder foundation. It is the Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover in OC10. I got the case and my first foundation pan when my mom handed them over to me since she is not really fond of using makeup as I have shared with you in this post. After finishing the first pan, I immediately bought a refill since I really love this product.

Here they are!!! 😀

You will need to buy the case and the foundation pan refill separately. It may be pricey at first. However, considering that after you finish your first pan, you will just need to buy another refill and not anymore the case. It becomes more practical in the long run. 😉

Product Description (taken from the Majolica Majorca website):

The details of the case are just so pretty, don’t you think? 😉

When you open the case, it has a mirror inside and has two compartments. The compartment on the left part of the case is where you will put the foundation refill. The other one is where you will put the powder sponge which is already included in the refill.

Makeup and Skincare Purchases: Nivea, Za-Cosmetics, PAC and Majolica Majorca plus Freebies plus Makeup Hand-me-down from my Mom

Hi! I have another post of my new purchases for today. However, this post will not be just about my recent purchases. As you read in the title of this post, I also have freebies and makeup hand-me-down from my mom. Let’s start! 😀

First part: My Makeup and Skincare Purchases

Beauty bloggers say that before putting on makeup, you should moisturize. This is a very important step that up to now, I am not yet putting into practice. Eeek! Sorry… Haha! 😛 So, I finally bought a moisturizer. For Nivea, I got the Smoothy Cream from their Nivea Baby skincare line.

I am lucky that I got the last stock when I tried to look for this at the baby section in SM Makati. The sales assistant told me that this is a really good product and that this is their bestseller for the Nivea brand. Well, I guess that’s true because based on what I read from other beauty blogs, they also have a hard time looking for this. It is always out of stock. By the way, you might be thinking why this is included in my post. It is a product for babies. Yes, it is! However, I read from several beauty blogs that this is an affordable yet an effective moisturizer. So, I got this one for now. 😀

For Za-Cosmetics, I got the True White Plus Liquid FoundationTotal Hydration Fresh Lucent Toner and Deep Cleansing Oil. I have been planning to get a liquid foundation for a month now. Finally, I got one. Yey! For the toner, it is another add-up into my skincare routine since cleansetone and moisturize are the basic steps for a clean and clear skin. So now, I think I’m on the right track. 😀 For the cleansing oil, yes, another makeup remover. Let’s see if this is a good one.
