Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Cushion

I meant to update on my project pan last year and give a list of products for project pan this year, but I’ve been testing out makeup since I “shopped my stash” that I forgot.

Anyway, today I will review the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Cushion.

This cushion wasn’t on my wish list nor did I have any interest in it, but Guerlain had this irresistible sale that included this. I seriously need to stop getting tempted by big offers. XD

Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50+ PA++++

I have a couple of Biore sunscreens that I loved, but they eventually irritated my skin. It’s disappointing because they worked so well under makeup and kept my face matte for nearly eight hours. So I had to do another research and discovered through another oily-skin girl the Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF50+ PA++++. 🙂

Anyway, in Canmake’s website, the gel sunscreen is described as so:

Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

I mentioned in our November-December beauty favorites that the Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder is the best affordable setting powder.

Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

The plastic compact feels slightly sturdy and light. Easy to slip in a purse or vanity kit for touch-ups, but a separate puff or dense powder brush is still needed. The latter works better btw.

November-December 2016 beauty favorites 

Better late than never. 😆

The holiday season is the busiest time of the year. Not only with the Christmas rush of gift shopping and/or get-togethers, but work deadlines too, which is difficult when you’re already feeling the holidays. I didn’t get to switch beauty and skin care products when December came because I was very busy to bother. Besides, almost everything I used in November I ended up liking so much that I didn’t want to switch yet. Even so, there are only a few that I really loved and would consider favorites. I think the same goes for Joiz. 🙂 I’ll begin with hers.

Most favorite (at the moment) drugstore foundation and concealer!

July has passed and I wasn’t able to review the rest of the makeup I was using then. But, actually, only the foundation and concealer are left, both of which I still use. They could still be part of my August makeup routine because I ♥ them both! In order of how I put them on, I’ll begin the reviews with foundation then concealer.

Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation 130 Buff Beige

This drugstore foundation has very good reviews and has been highly recommended for those with oily combination skin.

A bottle contains 30ml or 1.0 fl.oz. of product

I don’t think I have any cons, but only pros on this drugstore foundation.

  • Truly matte with medium to heavy coverage
  • Unscented
  • Yellow-toned
  • Eight-hour longevity and sometimes longer before any shininess peers through
  • Easy to blend (with fingers)

The Body Shop Dusty Rose Lip and Cheek Stain

The Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Stain is one of my purchases from last month. I find myself very much into lip and cheek stains or tints recently. I think I got hooked after I bought this.

An oldie, but still a goodie – The Korres Goddess Beauty LE Color Collection

Korres is one brand that I so want to love and be a favorite, but that they’re not easily accessible so that makes it impossible. I was on a trip to US at the time they released the Goddess Beauty, which contains several of their makeup. I knew I could get it. I could try several Korres products in one purchase. But I went to a couple of Sephora stores (I remember my mom complaining) and didn’t find it. Then I went to a branch near the hotel I was staying at and found a few. I thought hard whether or not I should get it. I browsed the store twice, but I knew it had taken my heart. LOLOL!
