Review: Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse

As a beauty blogger, I am on a constant search for interesting beauty products that are available in the market. When it comes to makeup foundation, so far, the ones that I have tried are the liquid and powder types. This is why the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Classic Ivory (Light 2) caught my eye when I was browsing over the Maybelline counter last month. It is not the usual kind of foundation that I have been used to. So, I bought one to give it a try. 😀

Product Description (taken from the Maybelline website):

Upon seeing it for the first time, I kept on thinking as to how I would use it since I am used to the typical liquid or powder foundation. I have initially tried this with a foundation brush. However, I cannot seem to make it blend properly. Aside from that, product particles fall off from the brush that can stain your clothes. Such a hassle…

Here is a swatch of the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Classic Ivory (Light 2). That is a heavy swatch, by the way. See those product particles? If you use a brush, some of the particles will fall off and stain whatever it is in which it will land. If you get that much amount using your finger, it would be hard for you to apply and blend it on your skin.

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):

A compact case that cute and luxury design with golden relief

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.

I love the packaging of this product. It is in a classy glass bottle that makes it look like it is from a high-end brand. 😀

Aside from that, the transparent packaging can already let you see the shade of the liquid foundation. This can also help you determine if you are already running out of the product.
