Review: CoverGirl TruBlend Products (Liquid Makeup and Pressed Powder)

Have you been busy lately with Christmas preparations, parties and reunions? Well, me too! I can totally relate!!! Aside from that, the next thing to prepare for is the upcoming New Year celebration. Whew! Super jam-packed schedules… Haha! 🙂 Thus, it has been a while since my last post.

For today, I will be sharing with you my recent love for CoverGirl products. They are so amazing and I am thankful that I was able to discover them through my December 2014 BDJ Box: CoverGirl. I will initially feature the CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup in Buff Beige and CoverGirl TruBlend Pressed Powder in Translucent Light.

First off, the review for the CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup in Buff Beige

Product Description (taken from the CoverGirl website):

truBLEND Liquid Makeup is available in 21 shades and features a new shade-matching system. To find your perfect blend, first determine your shade family. Second, choose your number. Coordinate complementary truBLEND products based on your number for a seamlessly flawless nude look that blends in and virtually disappears.

The bottle includes a pump so you could easily dispense a certain amount of the product depending on your desired coverage.

Here is a swatch of the CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup in Buff Beige.

I like that this foundation could give a medium to full coverage yet it is very natural-looking. It easily blends on the skin and does not make you look so made up. Looking fresh is so easy with this foundation.

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. 😀

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.

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

nivea, za-cosmetics, majolica majorca and pac products

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.
