Revealing my #1 favourite foundation...

Thanks everyone who commented on my previous posts! Your comments really made my day.. and i would like to welcome and thank my new followers for following my blog. And I have followed every single one of you too! If i missed any of you, please let me know ok? I am so excited and looking forward to exploring more great blogs!

And now...revealing my favourite foundation....

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
This foundation costs about RM 153. I hate the price though as i am still a student and i don't need another foundation coz i already have like 10 of them.. But this one really intrigued me.. I heard so many good reviews about this particular foundation and i was thrilled to find a Laura Mercier counter at the Empire Gallery.

I tried it on my hand, liked it. Tried it on my face, LOVED IT! I love the texture and the finish that it gives.. The consistency is creamy and i only need about a pea size to cover my whole face..

Creamy consistency

It feels really light on my skin, like i'm wearing no foundation at all. That's what i like about this foundation. And after spreading it with my fingers ( i don't use a brush with this i figured that fingers work well with this one), i can see that almost all of my acne scars have disappeared. It also hides any discoloration on my face. I noticed that i don't need as much concealer as i needed before.. We are talking about a FULL and HIGH coverage product..

The coverage is BUILDABLE.If u want a medium coverage, use less. When it sets, its gives a nice luminous finish, somewhat silky and almost matte but there's still some luminosity to it.. and my skin still feels and looks like my real skin! I love it!

A little really goes a long way!
The only downside about this foundation to me is that it doesn't last for more than 8-10 hours like my MAC studio fix foundation does, most probably because i live in a hot and humid country, and maybe because the texture is creamy, it doesn't really "stick" that well. I won't recommend it to women with very oily skin+live in humid weather or to those who need that FULL coverage all day long..

I 1st saw this product in one of Juicystar07 or Blair's youtube videos. She said she has oily skin but this foundation works great for her. Maybe because the weather there where she lives is not as humid as mine, and also maybe because she uses the Scandinavian No More Shine Spray that really helps to fix her makeup and keep her looking matte all day..Here's her video..

I still love this foundation nevertheless.. Sometimes i set it with Loose Powder, sometimes with my Laura Mercier Mineral Powder, sometimes with my Chanel Mat Lumiere Powder.. I'm in the phase of trying to figure out how to set this foundation to make it lasts longer.. I think the Chanel Mat Lumiere and Laura Mercier Mineral Powder work great!

Talking about the lasting power, i don't usually wear my makeup more than 8 hours except on special occasions. So i don't think i have any problem with this foundation. If u are someone who works in the office with aircond all the time, this foundation might work for u.

Note: In these pictures, I have worn the foundation for more than 2 hours..
With my 'ostrich' falsies..LOL

With my BFF. Less than 1 hour after applying the LM foundation

Tried parting my hair in the center and i think i look old

Me and my sister, Farra
Kisses to all of u my lovely ladies

Please check out my sister's blog Sugar, Spice and What Not, because she made a great post on How to take care of your eyes, especially for contact lense wearers. She also made a review on Laura Mercier Mineral powder that she recently got.

Till then beauties.. Love,

My New HG Foundation - A Quick Update

Hello gorgeous readers!

Sorry for not updating..I'm just done with my end of posting exam for Psychiatric posting last week and had been really busy with my studies.. And now i'm doing my Paediatrics posting and gosh it's so tiring!

Here's a quick update. I am totally in LOVE with my new foundation! Can you guess which foundation i am talking about? I'm gonna reveal it in my next Haul post i promise..

I think this foundation gives me a flawless and luminous finish which i'm totally digging! My skin feels so silky and i don't feel like i'm wearing foundation at all..

Here's my FOTD..

Loving my new necklace which has a unicorn, ice cream, music, crystal and signage on it..

My perfect HG eye cream and lip balm ~ Featuring Kiehl's

OMG! i can't express how much i am loving this eye cream!

You can view people's review on this eye cream here..,default,pd.html

This is one of the best eye creams i've tried so far. I didn't feel greasy at all, but it hydrates my eye area very well. My eye area can be a bit dry sometimes, and i really hate it when it's dry! You know when you have those days where your under eye concealer and loose powder look kinda cakey, didn't look right and the worst is when your lines are visible.. i just couldn't take it anymore!

My previous eye cream was from Clinique and it's called "All about eyes rich" eye cream. It worked pretty ok but i don't really like the greasy feeling it gave. I still have some of it left so i'm gonna alternate it with my new found LOVER, Khiel's until i'm done with it.

Khiel's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado RM 100 for 14g of product

Contains all the avocado goodness
The rich texture is filled with avocado goodness and i bet you guys already know that avocado is really great for your skin, right?

I just take a small amount on my ring finger, and then rub both of my ring fingers together to kinda "melt" it a bit...and the consistency changes! then i dab it all over my eye area. It feels a bit cooling, and the creamy texture changes to a thinner texture, almost like a gel or liquid. My eyes feel so refreshed and the next morning, i can already see and feel the difference! Ahhh i am in LOVE!

i am gonna indulging myself with this eye cream tonight.. and many many more nights to come.. :)
I know this little baby is gonna stick around for a while. Maybe forever!

I also got 2 samples from Kiehl's. Ultra facial cream and Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque

I've also tried the Ultra facial cream sample and i am totally loving it too! Kiehl's has SUPER FREAKING AWESOME products hands down...

I also got their VERY FAMOUS Lip balm a few months ago..
Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 RM 39 for 15ml of product

A few years ago i read somewhere that Tom Cruise and other Hollywood celebrities swear by this lip balm

Creamy, hydrating, tasteless, odorless.. Works great!

I can't write or talk enough good things about this great lip balm. I went to Korea in February when they had their worst winter on 30 years (-16 to -24 degrees celcius plus WIND *_*) and i had been applying this lip balm on top of my lipsticks religiously. My lips DIDN'T CRACK at all, despite the freezing evil cold weather..
I just can't live without it.
You've got to try it to believe it.. : )

Till then beauties. I hope you enjoyed this review..

Stage Haul ~ Featuring Stage Wonderluxe and Wonderlust Lipsticks

A month ago, i did a pretty bad damage at Stage because they are having this crazy SALE where almost all items are RM12!

But in this post, i'm gonna feature their lipsticks which i have been loving for years. I bought my 1st Stage lipstick 3 years ago and the first one was PASTEL POSY, and it has been my default nude pinkie lippie since then. My sister loves it, my friend Tia loves it too. Their Wonderluxe lipsticks have a very nice scent, and although the finish is matte, the lipsticks are hydrating enough..

Their normal price for a lipstick was RM45 but i think they have increased it to RM48.


I made 2 visits to Stage Cosmetics. What i got on the 1st visit

Candid Coral, Midsummer Mauve, Apricot Angel, Candy Coy, Lush Lotus, Audrey(Wonderlust)

I bought Lush Lotus a year ago and abandoned it for an unknown reason, regretted it and now i'm totally loving it again and i have it in my purse all the time! : )

I also have a post on Midsummer Mauve Wonderluxe Lipstick review. Click here to view.

The pictures were taken 3 weeks ago. I think i looked pretty tan. haha!

I was wearing Stage Photo Pro Foundation in these pictures..It has a more runny consistency and it gives me a medium coverage but i think the coverage is buildable. I set this foundation with Chanel Mat Lumiere Powder..

I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
Till then darlings,
Take care
