Disclaimer: I was given this product in exchange for an honest review. All views and thoughts of this product are my own. What may work for me, may not work for you so please keep that in mind.

Good afternoon, dear friends.

How are you? I know black friday was quite chaotic yesterday. In case you missed out on any special deals, do keep in mind that Cyber Monday is right by the corner with tons of new deals.

Here is my long anticipated review… You’ve seen it in my skincare routines and also my stories talking about this product. This was kindly gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.

Made in Korea

Product claims:

  • Gently revitalizes and refreshes skin
  • Highly pure and potent beta glucan
  • Reduces appearance of redness
  • Soothes skin irritation and re-hydrates skin
  • Maintains skin pH balance
  • Free of irritants and most importantly, alcohol
  • Free of Paraben, Ethanol, Talc, Mineral Oil, Silicon Oil, Benzopheone, Phenoxethanol, Parraffin/Perfume!
  • This toner is enriched with 99.9% beta glucan and the formula is able to penetrate deeply into pores, leaving the skin feel refreshed and comfortable
  • Excellent for all skin types

What is Beta Glucan?

Beta Glucan is a polysaccharide sugar derived from yeasts/oats. It has skin soothing and some antioxidant properties that are fantastic to improve the skin’s appearance by reducing redness and any signs of inflammation.

My thoughts

I’ve used this toner mist consistently for 3 whole weeks every single day and I have noticed a huge significant difference in my overall skin’s complexion. Firstly, I noticed the redness around my cheeks are drastically less prominent and also my forehead does not produce as much as oil as it use to. I’ve used this toner alone and also mixed in with other toners, it doesn’t affect or have any negative affects on my skin.

Do you ever get that dry, dehydrated, cracky skin feeling after a hot shower?
I always seem to have that issue so the moment I step out from my shower, I would dose myself with this toner all over my face. SokoGlam Charlotte Cho shared that towel drying your face after a shower isn’t a good idea so what I do is, the moment I step out from the shower I would spray this toner mist all over my wet face.

This is a fantastic product to be used under or over skincare and makeup. I’ve brought this with me to work to refresh my makeup and it doesn’t shift or affect my makeup. Unlike most mists in the market, this beauty is free of irritating chemicals and also has a shelf life of 9 months, which indicates that it doesn’t have a lot of preservatives to it. Be sure to mark the bottom of the mist the date you opened it. Also, please be very careful with getting this mist too close to your eyes. It’s formulated with citric acid so it will burn your eyes if you get it too close.

I have been introducing my skin to a lot of new products and I noticed I would break out from them. Everytime my skin is irritated, burning or even red, I would quickly mist this all over and I would the inflammation and swelling go down with half an hour. How fantastic is that? I have combination, acne prone skin so my skin will have days where it may be more sensitive than others. I would do my regular double cleanse routine, mist a generous amount of this toner and let it sit then apply my iunik propolis viatmin synergy serum and my moisturizer of choice.

Lately, it has been a lot more colder and dryer so my current moisturizer pick is the Cerve Moisturizing Cream (formulated with ceramides and hyaluronic acid). I tend to pick ceramide based creams during winter because they’re more on the thicker side and dense in concentration to rehydrate and restore my skin’s moisture barrier. I also like to use hyaluronic acid to retain my skin’s moisture.

Here is a photo of my skin after 3 weeks of continuous use to this product. If you’re curious how red my normal skin usually is, please reference from the photos below for my haruharu repetitive cream.

Untitled-1

Overall:

  • Texture: 5/5 – Lightweight and effective
  • Scent: 5/5 – No scent what so ever! Non-scented products are perfect for all skin types as well!
  • Price: 4/5 – It’s a fair price for what you get and it’s free of irritants so I would highly recommend this to everyone especially those who suffer with skin redness and often have irritation
  • Performance: 5/5 – This is one of very few mists I love and use every single day. It’s so effective and the ingredients are pure. My skin looks brighten and refreshed from every use and I often like to use this as my skincare base and finisher to seal in everything!
  • Packaging: 5/5 – Packaging is practical, easy to read and use. Nothing complicating and perfect to bring on the go.
  • Overall: 5/5 – I am REALLY happy with this mist and will repurchase this when I run out. It’s one of very few mists that do what they claim. Sure, many mists in the market are able to give a “cooling and soothing” feeling temporarily but this is probably the first facial mist that has tremendously saved my skin’s irritation. I am quite blown away with the results and how happy my skin is now.

Thank you for swinging by and reading my review. If you have any further questions of this product, please feel free to leave a comment below and I will be sure to read it and respond within a timely manner. I wish you all beautiful skin and have yourself a wonderful weekend.

[REVIEW] Haru Haru Wonder Honey Cream Repairative Cream

Disclaimer: I was given this product in exchange for an honest review. All views and thoughts of this product are my own. What may work for me, may not work for you so please keep that in mind.

Hello, hello, my friends. I hope your weekend is going well so far.
I received a lovely package from the brand HaruHaru. I firstly would like to thank their team for providing me this lovely cream along with 4 different cream samples.

Haruharu Wonder Honey Repairative Cream – 88g 
Available on: Jolse | Haruharu AU | Amazon

Product Claims/Information:

1) Key ingredients are the extracts from fermented Green Tea with Honey.

Green Tea is a powerful antioxidant that counters aging and detoxifying the skin.
Honey is a perfect anti-inflammatory and antibacterial ingredient that is able to reduce, prevent and protect the skin from aging, developing acne and unclogs pores.

2) All ingredients including Honey and Green Tea are 95% natural derived.

3) The product is excellent for skin regeneration and preventing future breakouts.

4) WONDER line has a very special patent technology called “Natural Liposome”.

5) ALSO, Very important… This product does not have the following:
Paraben | Chemical | Cruelty | Artificial Fragrance | Animal Origin Ingredients | Artificial Colorant

6) Ingredients are available on: cosDNA

Here are some lovely shots of the packaging of this product. I love how simplistic the packaging is yet bold because of the subtle reflective background and then the strong poppy red container that almost looks like a coffee cup and the geometric, circular design. It also comes with a spatula! I love it when brands include a spatula or spoon to scoop the product out because you won’t cross contaminate the product. I no longer use my finger/nails to scoop out products, strictly spatulas or q tips. If products don’t include spatulas, you can just purchase disposable spatulas on ebay or aliexpress. They are about 3-4 bucks for 50-100 of them.

 

The texture for this product is phenomenal because it’s this lightweight cream and it melts into the skin. You see how it looks like an opaque white? The moment you massage it in your skin, it melts in perfectly! It does not leave a greasy, oily residue. My face feels cool and refreshed every application. It’s quite comparable to my all time favourite a’pieu madecassoside cream in texture.

The scent smells a bit like clean linen and lemons. I personally don’t mind it and I actually really enjoy anything citrus scented but I wanted to put it out there just in case those who didn’t like citrus scented products.

Here are photos showing a closer look on what the texture looks like.

 

As many of you may know, I recently suffered from hormonal cystic acne so I was quite desperate on ensuring that I would minimize it and reduce any further breakouts on my face. My skin is combination, dehydrated and acne-prone. I don’t often break out unless I used something I should have not used on my skin, ate poorly(too much sodium, spice, sugar), or drastic weather changes. The most I would breakouts I would have would be 1-2. This time around, it was quite bad.. I break out all over my left side cheek and some were inflamed, some were just bumps.

Here are two photos of my skin gradually recovering. I forgot to take photos every day so I do apologize for that. The first photo was taken maybe around my 3rd or 4th day of after using the cream and the last photo was taken around the 7th day of my skin recovery. You can see a significant difference in the swelling and redness. To be very clear, I have a skincare routine that I have been doing every single day to achieve these results and the haruharu honey green repetitive cream is part of my routine. Let me know if you would be interested in what products I used to cure my acne~ Please feel free to drop me a comment below or message me on Instagram and I will do a full in-depth routine of products that cured my acne!

My thoughts: The packaging and container are great, I think it is quite travel-friendly because it’s not bulky and it’s different looking from your standard cream packaging making it super easy to identify in your collection/luggage. The cream was gentle on my skin and did not cause any further breakouts. You can even see how more radiant and even my skin is on the second photo compared to the first. I am very pleased with this cream and thankful for Haruharu for giving me the opportunity to try out their new products and to review. I would repurchase this because my current moisturizer collection is surprisingly quite limited.

Overall:

  • Texture: 5/5 – AMAZING. I love textures that are lightweight and melt into the skin. I should never feel like the product is too thick and it’s sitting ontop of my skin. Very rare cases I would myself using a thick cream on my face unless it’s a sleeping mask or my skin really needs that extra nourishment and moisture.
  • Scent: 3/5 – I am pretty content about this scent.
  • Price: 4/5 – The price will vary where you purchase this cream from but I do think it’s a fair price for what you get because it’s free of many horrible parabens, chemicals and no animals were harmed in this. Which are three very important factors a lot of users are concerned about.  You get a good amount of cream to use because most moisturizers are 30ml to 50ml.
  • Performance: 5/5 – I am pleased with the results and would recommend those who are suffering from random breakouts, who have breakouts and those who would be interested in a product with anti-aging benefits to get this!
  • Packaging: 5/5 – It’s so cute!!
  • Overall: 4/5 –  Very happy with this cream and cannot wait to try out the other creams! The other cream variations they have are:

    1.  Haruharu WONDER Honey Green Aqua Bomb Cream
    2.  Haruharu WONDER Honey Green Brilliant Cream  *highly interested because I love brightening products*
    3. Haruharu WONDER Honey Green Maqui Berry Antioxidant Cream

 

Well, that is all for today, friends! I hope you all enjoyed this review as much as I did writing it. I am wishing you all beautiful healthy skin and have yourself a lovely weekend!

Until next time.

[REVIEW] A. By BomUltra Time Return Eye Cream

Hello, hello! It hasn’t been long since I was long on here but I hope you all are doing well and are enjoying some nice weather where ever you are. I’m so happy to say summer has finally came to an end and fall has come.

I would like to share a product I have received from beMusedKorea to review and share to you guys my thoughts + opinions on it. Firstly, I would like to thank Lydia and her team for reaching out to me on Instagram and asking if I would be interested in trying their new launch of products. I will also be reviewing another product they provided me sometime this week or early on next week.

Disclaimer: All views and thoughts of this product are my own. What may work for me, may not work for you so please keep that in mind. 

A. By Bom – Ultra Time Return Eye Cream
Price: $49 for 30g / 1.05 onces
Available on: beMusedKorea

    • Claims: This elegant formula, with skin smoothing texture, provides long lasting nutrition that is immediately absorbed upon application, creating a protective film that noticeably smoothes and plumps the skin around the eyes.
      Key ingredients:
      Natural Collagen Booster – Protects and energizes the skin
      Maca Peptide: Strengthens skin barrier
      Poria Cocos Extract: Gives nutrition and protects the skin
      Ginseng berry: Hydrates and softens skin appearance

Here are some photos demonstrating and showing the texture and finish of the product. This is one full pump of the product and how it looks when massaged in the skin.

My thoughts:

The first few things you will notice when you dispense out is that it has a gel-velvety texture, making it easy to apply on your skin and it blends in seamlessly into the skin. It also doesn’t have much of a scent to it and does not smell artificial. The scent reminds me of freshly washed clothes with a bit of baby lotion! It’s not greasy or heavy on the skin and feels cooling. Some eye creams are too rich and dense in the formula so they tend to sit on top of the skin for a long period of time and have difficulty penetrating into the skin. I find this eye cream easy to sink into the skin and it doesn’t bother me – I don’t feel it on my face after applying it. It does not leave any film, color or texture residue behind and the skin around my eyes are soft, radiant and feel replenished. I have tried using this under makeup and it doesn’t shift or affect my makeup.

The weather is starting to get much colder where I am and I tend to get real skin all over my face and especially around my eyes. I’m not sure if some eye creams are irritating on my skin but I do rub my eyes more often with it on. For this eye cream, I haven’t experienced any issues with eye rubbing so that’s good news! I’m very aware of rubbing your eyes can cause major premature wrinkles but sometimes I can’t help myself.

Overall thoughts on this product:

  • Texture: 5/5 – Gel eye creams are more effective on my skin and do a better job of hydrating my skin! My biggest concern was if it was going to be too greasy and thick but it wasn’t! I prefer lighter gel texture eye creams because it feels weightless on my eyes.
  • Scent: 4/5 – I was hoping it would smell like flowers but the scent isn’t very important to me, the effectiveness of the product does.
  • Price: 4/5 – The price is on the higher end side however you’re paying for a quality product with nice packaging. It’s still much more affordable than western high eye creams.
  • Performance: 5/5 It doesn’t sit on my skin and absorbs pretty fast. It layers really nicely with my entire skincare routine and I don’t have any issues with it.
  • Packaging: 5/5 I was not expecting this from A. By Bom because I thought they would have made the packaging similar to their sheet mask designs but this was a fabulous surprise! The packaging is minimalist, luxurious and timeless. The bottle itself looks really expensive. I’m glad they opt for this kind of container and dispenser, I really don’t like eye creams in tubes; they can be super hard to dispense out the correct desired amount of product.
  • Overall: 4/5 I would repurchase this and would recommend this to my friends who are 20 years of age and older, I think prevention is key. I started using some mild anti-aging products since I was 21-22 and even if you don’t use anti-aging products, you should at least use sunscreen on a regular daily basis. Your skin will thank you later in life for doing so.

Q. How do you know about this brand?

A. I’ve heard of A. By Bom Cosmetics through social media and I’ve tried a couple of their sheet masks and loved every single of them.

Here are some of my A. By Bom sheet masks recommendations that I believe all of you should give a try: 

1. Ultra Water Leaf Mask – This is a one step sheet mask that is made with safe and natural material that is biodegradable and is naturally dis solvable. The serum is high in concentration and is equivalent to one whole bottle of ampoule (30 ml). It’s able to minimize the appearance of pores, re hydrate quench skin, soothes and calms down inflamed skin.
2. Ultra Cool Leaf Mask – This is a two step mask set that contains green leaf shared patches. It’s fantastic to retain moisture, soothe and calm the skin also provide additional hydration.
3. Ultra Floral Leaf Mask – Firstly, this is a beautiful mask that comes with a cute pink flower patch soaked in the mask’s essence. This is also a two-step mask set that provides whitening and skin tightening. It is infused with peach flower extracts that are excellent for whitening and anti wrinkle care. There is also Sakura flower extracts to provide hydration.

 

That is all for today, friends. I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Til next time! I am wishing you a wonderful and exciting weekend ahead of you.

[WISHLIST]: Chapter One – Sephora Edition

Hey beauties, it’s funny how these past few posts were quite negative.. Anti Haul, Product Flops.. I came on here to share things I genuinely would like to try out and want as a gift or I will purchase it for myself later on in life.

227e88a030f0617e602463e0d9d7378c
FAB – Coconut Water Cream
This is currently on sale at Sephora for 21 Canadian Dollars. I was quite intrigued by this product when I first came across it. I’m actually quite surprised how affordable it is now. I may consider getting it but I’m also quite unsure at the same time only because water, gel based creams are more effective for me to use during the summer time. I would need something waaay thicker for the fall and winter season to keep me hydrated and plump. During the colder seasons, my skin often looks very dehydrated and dull.

049f3eda48e74637b44237db14c91454

KIEHL’S Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence
I am an avid makeup user and sometimes I need a skincare pick me up. I am a huge believer in Good skin = good makeup so skincare will always be my top priority before makeup. This essence marketed to be able to remove rough textures on the skin’s surface and smooths out everything, creating a visibly improved skin appearance. Currently, it retails for 57 Canadian Dollars, I am patiently waiting for Sephora’s upcoming Fall VIB Rouge sale.

e4fc6993e6602d2463ea2e381677f248

Fenty Beauty – Diamond Bomb Highlighter
I am what you call an amateur highlighter hoarder. I own quite a few but I don’t own as much as beauty gurus or influencers. I went to Sephora with my friend and she kept nagging me to swatch this highlighter. Initially, I didn’t want to but when I swatched it.. I was kinda turned off how glittery it was but as I looked at even more and layered it on, I noticed that it sort of mocks the appearance of “wet skin”. The shimmers are very fine but I’m still able to visibly see them. I don’t own anything like this and I do believe it would be a great addition to my current highlighter collection.

ee5ad43be83124cc5b41c75687bfd5b9

Glow Recipe Watermelon Pink Juice Moisturizer
Everyone seems to be all excited for the watermelon mask but I’m all about this. This looks a moisturizer I can use under makeup, as an a skincare routine idea and all around a nice product to have on the go as well.. The waves-like glass bottle makes it look so luxurious and is so aesthetically pleasing for the eyes.

That’s it for now, friends. I wonder what else I will end up wanting or buying… Stay Tuned!

[REVIEW] Skinfood Gummy Bear Hand Cream in Cherry Chocolate

Skinfood Gummy Bear Hand Cream – Cherry Chocolate (45ml)


Good afternoon ladies and gents, I hope we all are having a wonderful Thursday. Don’t worry, Friday is right by the corner. Today, I’m here to share my thoughts on this hand cream I got recently in the mail. It’s pretty adorable, huh? I do recall seeing this hand cream available in multiple different scents about 1-2 years ago? I thought these were completely sold out but I was lucky enough to stumble across an eBay seller who sold these. They weren’t cheap, I do recall paying about 12 Canadian dollars for it. These range from 8 Canadian dollars to 12 Canadian dollars. It really depends on where you decide to purchase these.

The scent reminds me of a Milky, Cherry creamsicle, I don’t really smell the chocolate/cocoa notes. As you can see in the photo, my hand is outrageously dry, doesn’t matter whether it’s fall, winter, spring or summer, my hands will always somehow be dry. I have been really neglecting my hand care so I should really get back into habit using hand creams when needed.

The first thing I noticed for texture was that this it’s not watery, thin nor is it too thick. It has a perfect combination of the two making it extremely easy to massage into the skin. You don’t need a lot of it to moisturize your hands and you most definitely can layer it if needed. It doesn’t give you that thick white cast on your hands when you apply too much which is nice because, at times, I tend to accidentally dispense out more hand cream than needed.

Texture: 5/5 – This is my ideal texture I would like in a hand cream. A hybrid between lightweight but not watery and not thick where it’s difficult to spread.
Price: 3/5 – A bit on the pricey side for a standard hand cream but at least the packaging is adorbs.
Packaging: 5/5 – Super adorable, compact and iconic! Who doesn’t know or love gummy bears?
Moisturizing: 3/5 – I think this is a standard hand cream, it’s most definitely not heavy duty enough for dry, cracky winter hands
Scent: 3/5 – This scent could be better, I wish it smelled more like cherry chocolate because it really reminds of a cherry milkshake, cherry creamsicle or even creme savers hard candy!

cme08393-2

I would probably recommend this anyone who collects cosmetics and loves cute packaging. It’s definitely something you can do without but great for those who collect these sorts of things.

 

Thanks for dropping by to check out my review~ Til next time, friends.

Anti-Haul – First Chapter

Good morning, darlings! I hope we all are having a fantastic start to our week. Only 2 more days and the weekend will be here. I noticed there are quite a few blog posts and even youtube videos on this subject. I always talk about what I want but never really what I don’t want.

*Disclaimer: These are all my personal thoughts and opinions on these products. In no way or form am I shaming these brands or products.

samyang-tonymoly-1

Tony Moly x Samyang collaboration collection

I’m sure many of you know, I’m all about buying new collaborations with cute packaging. I like and dislike this collaboration for various reasons; the first would probably be I feel like cushion could look more cute and I question if whether Tony Moly and all these other korean brands are running out of ideas. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of iconic brands and things that Korea has and Samyang is one of them because the internet literally blew up with a whole bunch of fire hot noodle challenges. I just think the collaboration is weak and nothing special. It will quickly be forgotten because there wasn’t much thought put in it. When I think of Tony Moly, I think of fruit packaging and cute pandas – never have I thought that they would collaborate with an instant noodle brand. I think they should have made something dessert themed instead. Unfortunately, I will be skipping out on this collab.

too-faced-gingerbread-spice-eyeshadow-palette-1536156364

Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette

I own quite a few things from Too Faced and a lot of their eye shadow palettes are repeated shades or similar to one another. I was hoping they would go out of the box and release an eyeshadow palette with more pops of colour. The lucky clover collection was so adorable and I was hoping they would make more palettes like that. This gingerbread spice palette will be available during the holiday seasons and I believe this will be a limited edition release. If anyone knows me, I love anything fall/winter themed, hot chocolate and pumpkin/cinnamon spice scented products but I just don’t think I would get much use out of this palette for it’s shades therefore I don’t see any reason why I would pick this up other than for flatlay or reviewing purposes. I personally would not grab this palette on my own. I own way too many warm/cool tone red and brown shades to get anymore. At this point, I am hoarding a lot of palettes I don’t even use.

Etude House Lip Products *in general*

This may shock many of you because I know there’s a huge volume of kbeauty addicts/lovers who love Etude House’s lip products but hear me out… I own a lot of etude house products and they are very affordable with cute packaging. I feel like everytime I get their products it’s super hit or miss. The soda tints for example, I only find myself using the peach one the most and grape from time to time. The milk one I anticipated for turned out to be a clear gloss with a tiiiny bit of pink tint to it. Their popsicle collection was just awful, they were not tints by any means and just disappeared within one meal/hand wipe. I feel like because they produce cute packaging, they kind of half ass their formulation. This is just my personal experience with their lip products. Their cute interchangeable lipsticks are alright, I don’t find myself reaching for them either but they are better in formulation than the tints.

Pretty Vulgar The Powder Room – Translucent Powder

I am so done with all these high end brands releasing translucent powder and asking for outrageous amount of money. Let’s be real here, ladies & gents… It’s a POWDER, I’m sure it’s not mind blowing and it’s also TRANSLUCENT. It’s not something multi functional and be used alone. I purchased the Laura Mercier translucent powder when I first started on makeup and I have not touched it for 2 years. The only time I would ever use an expensive high end powder is if I was gifted it. Overall, it’s not worth my hard earning money to buy something to mattify or “bake” my face. I also don’t bake my face, I gently apply some pressed powder (with spf) ontop of my foundation or cushion and I’m good.

Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Full Coverage Concealer Fluid

No way in heck, I will pay 36 canadian dollars for a concealer. Concealers are just as expensive as foundations, I don’t have any heavy dark circles of blemishes to conceal so this would be absolutely pointless for me to buy or use. Also, I have purchased the Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation because of Jaclyn Hill raving so much about it. I actually really hate it. Never have I felt my face so weighed down, sticky and oily. Even setting it, it still was oily and my hair would cling on to it. You know that sticky lip gloss feeling and you hair gets caught on it? yeah, exactly like that but with a foundation. You can imagine how annoying that was for me.

 

Well that is all for chapter one, friends! Have yourself a wonderful day and stay tuned for the next chapter on Dorki’s Anti-Haul.

PRODUCT FLOPS: CHAPTER 2

Hey hey, this is probably the most active I have been on my blog and I really just wanted to stretch this series because there are quite a few products where I just did not like and I really wanted to share with you all my thoughts and opinions on them.

Disclaimer: What may have or may have not worked out for me doesn’t mean it will apply the same for you. Everyone’s skincare type is different. These are my personal experiences with these products.

missha silver.jpeg

The first bb cream I have ever tried!!
At the age of 17, I started getting more familiar with makeup and experimenting with different brands and products. Bb creams were a huge deal back then because they weren’t just for post surgery folks but they are the future of foundation because they are multi-function and provide anti-aging, whitening and buildable/high coverage. Bb creams may vary in texture and coverage but this one was very thick and has medium coverage. I loved this bb cream for my early stages of practicing with makeup. This bb cream had literally ONE shade and it’s most comparable to the Missha M Perfect Cover Bb cream in shade #21 but it has a really heavy grey undertone to it. I didn’t appreciate that it clung onto my dry patches and made my skin look aged especially around my smile lines and forehead. Maybe this bb cream is meant for oily skin users? Not sure but this was a flop for me and I don’t know why I repurchased this thing 3-4 times.

INC.redible You Glow Girl in Cosmic Blur

This product came out before the Colourpop Jelly shadows and I thought this idea was brilliant but at the same time, it was too good to be true. Anyone who has followed me on Instagram long enough would know that I am all about that holographic, duo-chrome, unicorn look. This is gorgeous when you first apply it and you can layer it pretty well. My issue with this is that if you accidentally wipe or touch your face, the highlight is GONE. I highly doubt this is going to be blendable with other shadows because it’s consistency alone. The concept is great, the formula definitely could be revamped and improved on. Overall, it is a fun product to play around with to take some cool photos with but it’s not meant for long wear use.

2501224 Shiseido Light Bulb Foundation in 774 Light Beige

I had extremely high hopes for this foundation but it just did not work out in the end. The shade match was quite accurate because this was only available online to purchase so I kind of just eyeballed my shade and hoped for the best. The one thing I appreciated about this foundation was that it never oxidized on me. This foundation has such a DENSE, thick and oily texture to it. Not something I would like in a foundation. It really weighed my face down and I felt extremely uncomfortable with it on. It’s the exact feeling I get when my skin is congested from a hot, humid day. The odd thing was my face didn’t oily regardless the fact my face felt weighed down.. it looked quite dewy and healthy but I just did not like it’s heavy texture. If they had a lighter formula for this, I would have loved it.

p425265-av-03-lhero Huda Beauty Winter Solstice Palette

I honestly purchased this palette for the blue-lavender shade aka “arctic glow” but it just didn’t work out. It looked really bad on my skin and it looked like a giant blue strip on my cheek even if I gradually layered it and took my time to blend it. Winter Rose and Northern Lights were okay but I was hoping they would be more buildable. Frosted Kiss (peachy shade) was a cream formula. I personally don’t really like cream highlighters because they don’t apply well and you have to work really hard to blend it in the skin. I prefer pressed powder highlighters because they’re not as messy and difficult to work with.

That’s it for this chapter, friends. Tune until next time for chapter 3 on Product Flops!
Have a good night~
