Review + Swatches: POND’S Flawless White BB Cream in Fair

8 Jan

This was a requested post last year. It took a while for me to get one because I wasn’t sure if it’s really worth it. Since holidays are full of reunions, I asked for bb creams with good coverage in a makeup group. Someone said she’s using this. It’s also recommended by other members. I finally decided to go to Mercury Drugstore and get one for myself.

Description:
Your solution to a brightening foundation cream with UVA and UVB protection. This BB+ Cream covers your spots instantly while reaching deep within your skin to lighten your dark spots and dark circles– resulting in clear, fair and flawless skin.

Ingredients:image

Pros:
– Affordable, 299 pesos for 30ml & 149 pesos for 8ml
– Available in-stores and online
– Plastic tube packaging
– Powdery scent like other bb creams
– SPF 30
– Has dewy finish for dry & normal skin
– Doesnt cause breakouts
– Did not trigger my contact dermatitis

Cons:
– Comes in 2 shades only
– Light coverage in my opinion

Swatches:image

The photos above show that it slightly covered my mole. I think this is just your normal bb cream. It has light and dewy finish. I apply a bit more than usual to have a decent coverage. It won’t cover deep hyperpigmentations which is what I have. I always set it with Maybelline’s 2-Way Cake which adds more coverage. Dewy finish tends to wear off so don’t forget to set it with powder even if you have dry skin. I dont like dewy finish for my oily skin. I blot it first before applying concealer and powder.

It’s good enough for 300 pesos if you want natural makeup. They have 8ml tube for 149 pesos at Mercury Drugstore in Glorietta. I’m neutral about it. I dont love it and dont hate it either. This will do for now. I’m planning to use it all up.

Wish List: Makeup Edition

19 Dec

I browsed my wish list and most of the products are skin care. I guess I’m obsessed. I have other items on my list aside from that. I suck at many things including makeup. I depend on bloggers and youtubers especially for concealers. I like to see full coverage routine on people who have acne prone skin. They justify if a product gives medium to full coverage.😊

Enough of the ramblings, let’s start~


BB Cream

HOLIKA HOLIKA Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream – approx. P680
This doesn’t provide coverage. I’m planning to use this as my base since it’s feels light on the skin. BB cream gives dewy and glowing look even if it has matte finish. I need it underneath my concealer & foundation to have hint of glow. I have oily skin so I don’t like to overdo it.

CELETEQUE Brightening Multi-Benefit BB Cream – P325
I love Celeteque’s alcohol-free toner. I think it wouldn’t hurt to try their bb cream. It’s very affordable. I think you can get this at all department stores. It’s only in one shade though. I hope it’ll suit my skin tone.

Powder Foundation

ELLANA MINERALS Radiant Concealer & Foundation – P499
I’ve never tried mineral makeup before. Ellana is a local brand. It sounds promising because of its dual function. I’m assuming that it will add more coverage. This is specifically for warm tone with dark spots/blemishes. Each tub weighs 6g. It’s quite expensive for me but I’m trying to look for makeup with few ingredients.

Concealer

Pot/cream concealers usually give medium to full coverage while liquid & stick concealer usually give light to medium coverage.

NYX Concealer Jar – P360
I prefer to use cream/pot concealers because I need medium to full coverage for my dark spots. A blogger said this can be a dupe for MAC’s concealer aside from my all time favorite Tony Moly pot concealer.

nyx

KRYOLAN Dermacolor Camouflage Creme Trio Set – $23.30
Em Ford (mypaleskin on youtube) used this a lot in her videos when she still had breakouts. I’m surprised that it really covers her blemishes. This is also Wayne Goss’ best concealer for 2015. I wanted to get the full size pot but I doubt I’ll get my perfect shade. It’s freaking expensive if I get 2 pots. I thought a palette is great so I can mix colors to get my shade. Or I could just get the refills and look for a container. The refill is $5. πŸ˜›

kryolan

COLLECTION Lasting Perfection Concealer – P299
Em Ford also used this a lot in her videos before she discovered Kryolan. It’s very affordable and the coverage is good too. I’ve seen a blogger’s swatch and it covers her dark spots. That convinced me.

INGLOT Cream Concealer – P895
I passed by Inglot’s shop before. I’ve never heard of it. I searched the brand and looked for their concealers. I found a swatch where this concealer can almost cover a tattoo. It’s 10ml for 895 pesos. I think it’s a good deal. They have wide shade selection to choose from.

PINK SUGAR Our Lil’ Secret Concealer – P299
Another local brand and I assume it’s promising. A lot of pinay bloggers are raving about this so it must be really good. One blogger said it sets like cement…. Cement, sounds good to my oily skin. I have to try it at their counter to know if I wont have a hard time applying it.

I dont think too much about lips and brows. I can use anything for them. This wish list is full of face products. I focus on coverage because I have A LOT of dark spots. I wish I could go out without makeup but unfortunately I can’t. I would go out bare faced if our society isn’t messed up.

Review + Swatches: A’PIEU Air Fit Cushion in #21

19 Jul

Tonight’s review is about my first ever bb cushion. I have never seen a cushion in real life. I was curious so I bought one for myself. I got the lightest shade, #21. I could just go to korean brands’ boutiques here to swatch one but I wont buy any. I think they are pricier here. That would be awkward if I’ll just get out of the store. πŸ˜‚

image

Cushions are usually expensive. My budget for makeup is not more than 500 pesos per product. I want my readers to save πŸ’° too. I found out Apieu has an affordable cushion. I clicked the checkout button right away. πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚ You can get this for less than 500 or even 400 pesos if it’s on sale when you preorder it from sellers or buy directly from korean sites.

What is it?
Air-Light Powder’ gives light and clear application giving natural make up finish. Used mineral water instead of water for clean and moisture skin. ‘Rolling System’ with skin curves giving clean and even application. ‘Airy Cover Powder’ gives silky comfortable skin coverage. Aloe / tea tree extract gives comfort on sensitive skin. Patent ingredient avocado peptide gives healthy elastic skin.

Now I dont know what the whole description means but Im pretty sure it’s a bb cushion. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…
