Brilliant À Lèvres Lip Gloss (#151, #183, #579)

 

I am addicted to these beautiful lip glosses! Besides, the lip liner is absolutely creamy and pigmented, it can be used as “lipstick” too!

+ Moisturizing and glossy

+ Very fine shimmer

+ Very natural finish

–  Need few layers to show some pigmentation

–  Not long-lasting that it wore off after a meal

–  started melting a little bit (in the palette) in hot humid weather

Diorskin Forever Compact SPF25 PA++ ( #020 Light Beige )

 

A nice touch but not the best, basically I don’t like it for hot weather. For your info, I always use this powder compact with the Dior brush.

+ Moisturizing and non-drying

+ Very fine shimmer that hardly to be noticed in close distance

+ Very fine powder to create flawless makeup

+ Natural alike soft-illuminating finish

+ Natural looking with multi layers

+ Buildable sheer to medium coverage

+ Rarely caked on skin

+ No breakout or irritation

–  No coverage for pores

–  Non-mattifying for combination skin in hot humid day

–  Need touch-up in afternoon to blot off the excessive shine

–  Oily T-zone shined within an hour although no greasy touch

 

 —- ∞ Skin Chapter 1 ∞ —-

Skin primed with Kanebo Cofffret D’or makeup base, so the “before” skin shined a lot due to the shimmering particles of the makeup base that reflected direct sun light.

before = with the makeup base  ;   after = with Diorskin Forever Compact after the makeup base

 

—- ∞ Skin Chapter 2 ∞ —-

Tested the Diorskin Forever Compact on right face only.

Left = skin after the moisturizer ; Right = skin applied Diorskin Forever Compact right after the moisturizer

 

After 6 hours spent in cozy room temperature in hot humid day (consider balanced skin condition), no touch-up or blotting, the sheer coverage of Diorskin was still there. You might notice the right side (With Diorskin) has more shine because the fine shimmers of Diorskin reflected the sun light better.

Beautifying and caring your skin at the same time. SK-II Skin Signature Cream-In-Foundation contains 75% skincare cream ingredients to moisturize skin, and protect from UV with SPF20. PA++. I have had enough of drying powder but still love the convenience of compact foundation; this just seemed to be perfect 2-in-1 compact foundation.

 

 

I got my skin tested with SK-II beauty system. The final summary of my overall skin condition was shown in below attached picture. HÖöray! Regardless I had slightly dehydration and pigmentation issues, my skin was nearly perfect at my age. Interestingly, SK-II’s SA didn’t talk about your skin type, instead, they focused on my skin concern. According to the beauty consultancy, my naturally thin & sensitve skin was having problem to retain moisture constantly, resulting dehydrated condition, imbalanced moisture and irregular skin texture. Meanwhile, my mild melasma probably explained the lower grade of skin tone aspect. At the end of skin analysis, the SA just asked me what I need instead of she thought what I need, perhaps through our conversation, the experienced and well-trained SA got the massage I was no longer a skin care newbie. Try SK-II online free consultancy if you are interested.

 

 

It is available in 5 shades, my shade is 310 (Crystal Ochre), which is the lightest shade and slight yellowish. The shades of Skin Signature Cream-In-Foundation is not exactly alike with other two SK-II foundations (Advanced Whitening Source Pancake Ex and Cellumination Essence-In-Foundation). For instance, the lightest shade of Cellumination Essence-In-Foundation is more pinkish compared to Skin Signature Cream-In-Foundation.

 

 

As you can see from below pictures, this is indeed “Cream in Foundation”. Use the sponge to pick up the foundation, then sweep over and carefully blend into the skin, it melts on skin like liquid or cream foundation, feeling a tad cooling and very moisturizing. You do not need much of this for each application, a swatch for U-Zone and another for T-zone is more than enough.

 

New and unused

After many applications as shown in this picture. I saw the testing pact at SK-II beauty counter, the white swirl would slowly disappear when the foundation reaching the half.

 

It has sheer coverage, buildable to medium. Freckled skin like mine would still need concealer to pretend a “flawless” skin. It imparts natural finish and gives you “rejuvenated dewy complexion”, as natural as your “second skin”. If you want a high-duty foundation, this is definitely not your ideal one since it actually ideal to enhance a “flawless” skin. Blemish skin may find it useless other than the moisturizing effect.

 

 

Normal to dry skin will appreciate its moisturizing touch. It does not control oiliness at all but it is long-wearing that I could still feel it on after 7 hours. However, it caused me zit when I moisturized the skin too much in warm season. As such, I just use it right after toning whenever my skin tends to be on oily side, it serves me very well in this way too. After all it does contain 75% skin care properties.

 

 

In spite the champagne red packaging looks heavy and bulky, it is lightweight actually.  

**^^**  Testing  **^^**

 

 

As a whole, this is comfortable wearing and I love the overall concept, thus my rating is a little bit bias here. Positively, because of the sheer coverage, I am very alert of my skin condition. The case (~USD22) and the 10.5g refill (~USD66) sold separately, it costs me ~USD88 in total. Either I will try similar compact foundation of other brands or I will keep this as my favorite foundation; I read Albion, Clinique, Sonial Rykiel have similar type of wet-textured compact foundations too.

Rating: ….)))    Excellent. Willing to buy again.

“The smart makeup, a liquid foundation with adjustable, oil-free coverage provides moisture and absorbs oil when and where needed”, says Clinique.

I visited Clinique beauty counter last month and received a free foundation sample in a Clinique event, the Clinique sales assistant recommended  SuperBalanced Foundation (2007 formula) for my combination skin. I just wish I can test their 2010 autumn release – SuperMoisture Cream Compact, unfortunately their do not have sample for compact foundation.

 

 

The consistency of SuperBalanced is creamy and moisturizing, the liquid foundation melts on skin easily and TRACELESS, so it creates very natural dewy finish like no makeup on regardless how many layers you applying on. My shade is #27 Alabaster, a slightly pinkish tone and the coverage is sheer and buildable to medium-high. While Clinique claims it “balances combination skin, Long wearing, best for oily-combination and oily skin types“, I have totally two extreme outcomes when tested it in different situation.

For your reference, I was based in Indonesia at the time I was sampling this, so you can imagine the weather there was very humid and my skin tends to be oilier. At comfortable room temperature, wearing a decent amount of SuperBalanced foundation after sunblock, my combination skin shined again in less than half of an hour, majority of the sheer-medium coverage wore off after tissue blotting. If I apply the foundation thinly, I found no difference without wearing it, it simply did nothing for makeup in this case.

When I sat near to air conditioner for long hours that the conditioned air was blowing toward me, meanwhile I wore this SuperBalanced foundation heavily (few layers) after applying sunblock, it gave medium coverage and kept my easily dehydrated skin balanced and shine-free for whole day. In this case, this is really lovely.

–~~ Testing ~~–

Left: With Clinique SuperBalanced;  Right: Bare skin

 

I had eczema flare up on the back of my hand for very first time and it had been recovered,  but several marks were still visible, you can judge the coverage of Clinique SuperBalanced from the pictures.

~~– Testing –~~

 

This is fine when using it correctly, not my favorite especially the shade is too pinkish for my liking but I love the Clinique free-sample event, a good opportunity test it for at least a week before splurging. As my skin is quite stable in humid weather so I have no chance to tell whether it is comfortable wearing for sensitized skin.

Claiming 10 years of research, Aura-Inside™ Technology, a natural light creator. Intensely hydrates skin for 18 hours, leaving it instantly luscious and plumped. Minimises the appearance of uneven skin tone, for a unified and radiant complexion. SPF 15 for daily protection against ultra-violet rays. Day after day, this hydration reinforces Teint Miracle’s results: skin is smoothed, more able to reflect light and gains transparency to better reveal its inner light. Even after make-up removal.

 

 

Despite many cosmetic companies love the magic number “10years”, Lancome Teint Miracle did gain a lot of exposure of their marketing event. To join the hot wave, I also got my mini makeover done in October and received a tiny sample of Teint Miracle.

 

 

This is lightweight, easily spreadable and non-greasy. Although it said it hydrates skin for 18 hours but as you can see from the above attached pictures, my skin is very dry and the right side of skin with Teint Miracle looked dry as well, so do prime or condition your skin before putting on this liquid foundation. When I was in the mini makeover, the SA applied Blanc Expert whitening emulsion onto my cleansed skin followed by UV Expert makeup base with SPF50.

*'”‘* Testing *'”‘*

 

Before – Dab on Teint Miracle sheerly

After – Soft finish

 

It has sheer to medium coverage that the SA did use a concealer for my freckles in the mini makeover. My shade is BO-01 and it seemed to do a good job to neutralize my facial redness. The finish is pretty much alike with Palgantong Vita White BB Cream but much better in some aspects. It instantly brightens and evens up a dull skin, minimizes appearance of pores, imparts soft glow and it looks very natural like second skin. Moreover, this is long-wearing, except slight oily shine on T-zone after spending hours in hot sun, my complexion remains fresh without streaky trace, no touch-up needed but can just blotting the shine away with tissue. Frankly speaking, the foundation finish is nothing stand out compared to many many good foundations/BB creams on the market, however, I must give my thumb up to its long-wearing feature, especially in terribly hot and humid weather. 

 

After skin excreted sebum, my T-zone shines and becomes greasy but still looking fresh

 

As I only test this out on and off, I cannot tell if it will really improve skin in long run as it claimed, though I doubt. So far, no irritation or breakout for me. Overall, this is impressive and best of all, it priced reasonably. THB1700/NT1600/RM130/SGD65/30ml in Asia.

Clinique SuperMoisture1

This is good news to those have dryness concern, the SuperMoisture Makeup foundation! Formulated for dry skin, promises full coverage dewy glow. According to clinique.

 

Few months ago, I asked a sample of Clinique SuperMoisture Makeup on whim. To my surprise, the yellow-based foundation glides on smoothly and moisturizing like a creamy moisturizer, imparts dewy amd natural finish.

 

the whitish crease

the whitish crease

 

The coverage is buildable from medium to full. The porcelain finish won’t be as shine as you dab pearly glitter powder on face despite it contains very unnoticeable glitter-particles. Pore concealing power is almost none, but proper moistured skin before the foundation would help. Nevertheless, the emollient cream will crease on my double eyelids (that happen to my heavy coated sunscreen too). So, whenever I have no eye makeup on, I just try to avoid or use tiny amount on the area.


 

Clinique SupreMoisture swatch

 

Do take small amount for each application for healthy glowing skin. Applying too much will end up unnatural clay look especially over my heavy coating of milky sunblock. In fact, using Clinique SuperMoisture Makeup foundation reminded me of using a thick-consistency Korea BB cream, though Clinique SuperMoisture Makeup has better color match. 

 

tube packaging

 

During summer, it was too greasy since my skin condition turned to normal combination, for that reason, sometimes it oxidized on me. This is never my everyday essential and that explains why the tube still has 70% left after more than 7 months usage. After all, concerning of dry season, whenever my skin was suffering severe dryness, this greatly helped. No breakout, no irritation, completely comfortable wearing.  Ideally, SuperMoisture is excellent for moisturizing, even up complexion and adding some glow to very dry/dehydrated skin.

Due to the comfortable creamy texture, I bought a full size at MYR100 for 30ml at Malaysia airport duty free after testing the sample for a week. If you have dryness concern, love BB cream texture but can’t find the correct shade, love dewy finish, love yellow based foundation, not asking for pore concealing ability, don’t mind it probably stain because it’s truly emoillent, and you don’t have problem with oxidization, then try this.

Kose Esprique Precious make-up line immediately caught my attention when the line debuted in September this year. What a beautiful lovely packaging! Best of all, this is finally released in Thailand and I have heard big name of Kose Esprique Precious compact foundation in beauty magazines.

 

Kose EP Pact1

 

Due to the skin redness, I was considered neutral shade. I tested PO-205, BO-300 and OC-405 on hand, then decided to give PO-205 and OC-405 a try on face. Without hesitation, three of us (the sales assistant, my SO and I) agreed the PO-205 looks more natural on me  whereby OC-405 appears too yellow and darker. At the end I have to get pink shade again. Later I noticed  PO-205 has hint of beige, not a problem to my Asian skin tone anyway, at least my skin will not looks pale like a white paper.

 

Kose EP Pact2

 

I actually immediately sold by this Esprique Precious powder foundation when the sales assistant applied the powder after primed with Esprique Precious moisturizing base (refreshing gel-lotion), the powder adheres very smoothly on my dehydrated skin without heavy patchiness, changed my mind to get a western powder foundation initially.

 

Kose EP Pact3

 

The texture of this powder foundation is quite creamy and a tad powdery, very similar to most Japanese powder foundation that I have tried. Despite it contains minimum fine pearly-particles, I think the finish is relatively matte that eliminates oily-shine perfectly. Esprique Precious Dramatical Stay Pact can be used together with either dry or damp make-up sponge, I personally prefer dry way, easier to control use amount and less cakey tendency.  

 

Kose EP Pact4

 

Base on my experience, matte finish usually reveals skin imperfection excessively, thus I always  love to use shimmering base for semi-matte finish, using light-defusing concept to blur the imperfections. Kose Esprique Precious Dramatical Stay Pact has buildable medium coverage which moderately covers my redness, freckles and pores, imparts velvet soft glowing skin. However, it could causes patchiness upon fresh application, especially the skin is proned to dryness.

 

Kose EP Pact5

 

The picture above had shown the “cakey” or “patchiness” that I referred to. No doubt on why Japan make-up artists always emphasize the importance of make-up primer and apply powder foundation with light hand. Luckily many sunscreens today are well-formulated as make-up primer to avoid multi-layers make-up.

 

Kose EP Pact6

 

As this is fall/winter release, it claims to provide moisture and indeed the skin doesn’t feel any discomfort or drying along the day in both humid and dry environment. Nevertheless, in my case, the skin looks parched in heavy air-conditioning environment (especially the air-conditioner just above your head), could be my easily dehydrated skin, so I only apply sheer layer to hold my sunblock occasionally.

 

Overall this has above average staying power which I don’t have to touch up since I don’t have super oily skin, just blot off the excess shine with facial tissue. In fact, skin looks smoother and glowing gradually after 2-3 hours when skin started to shine a tad,  but not the oily-shine and not lardy to touch. The powder basically adheres well onto skin until I removed it with make-up remover, although it would still wear off slightly when skin becomes oilier. I don’t wear foundation everyday, for testing purpose I continuously wear this foundation for a week, no breakout but might give me a clog pore if I wear something heavy underneath.

 

Kose EP Pact7

 

The concept of this lasting powder foundation is explained by above picture. 

 

1 the powder shields (pink balls) builds a layer of foundation film on skin.

2 sweat and sebum are excreting.

3 the powder shield incorporates with sweat and sebum.  

4 formed a fixing film.

 

That also explains why my skin appears dewy like wearing a moisturizing cream/liquid foundation after sebum excretion.

 

Kose EP Pact8

 

Besides, the refill compartment is cover by a flip-top plastic film, and the height (1.5cm) of the case is also slightly bulkier than my other compacts. Refill pack 10g  is retailing at THB 1300, and case THB 370. Not really expensive since I think it is better than Kanebo Impress powder foundation which costs as steep as La Mer’s. No doubt long-wearing is the prime concern to Japanese ladies, Shiseido Maquillage, Kanebo Coffret D’or, Sofina Primavista and Ablion Exage are also having similar long-wearing concept.

 

Kose EP Pact9

 

Frankly speaking, I only use powder/liquid/cream foundation in these few years, and quite frustrated when I see no powder foundation creates “perfect” skin constantly (only happen to good skin condition, but good skin condition doesn’t need foundation), so I am  slowly eliminated powder foundation on my make up list and going back to pressed/loose powder.

Kanebo Lunasol water crm fdn sample

I have read so many raves about this Lunasol Water Cream Foundation before, perphaps all Kanebo foundations. It consists approximate 60% water composition and suitable for all skin types. After conditioning the skin with a makeup base, apply the foundation with sponge or fingers and spread evenly onto skin. 6 shades of choice, the sample I have is OC03, which is 2 shades darker than my actual shade, but looked slightly lighter after I dabbed on tinted Clarins matte loose powder (translucent).

Kanebo Lunasol wcf content

The creamy cream consistecy of this foundation is quite thick, but easily spread onto skin, settled quickly and moisturizing. It contains very fine shimmer-particles that brighten skin instantly asides having skin care ingredients for skin conditioning.

Kanebo Lunasol wcf swatch

It provides medium to full coverage, above average pore concealing power, imparts semi-mattle with subtle glowing complexion, very natural looking that hardly tell there is a foundation on. If you want to know how it works together with Lunasol creamy makeup base, please click here.

Skin after sunscreen

With Lunasol WCF on

A humid cloudy day, my skin started to shine a little bit within 2 hours, leaving more dewy finish, perhaps slightly enlarged pores but basically remained beautifully for entire day if your skin is not very oily, touch up is not a must, just blot the excess sebum with blotting paper. Besides, it kept my face looking fresh with subtle glow in air-conditioned environment for entire day. If you have fine lines issue like me, that is better to use together with a makeup base for flawless finish.  Brushing the matte Clarins loose powder after the cream foundation gives refined velvetly-soft glowing skin since the loose powder has minimum glitter-particles, but the loose powder wore off after few hours, which is normal. Do note the semi-matte foundation finish will affected by type of loose powder, either pearly one or matte one.

With Clarins Loose Powder on

This water cream foundation actually got me thinking of Clinique SuperMoisure foundation. Comparing both (refer to below picture), Lunasol’s gives better coverage for pores and skin tone, smoother to touch, take longer time to become oily, no need to touch up and doesn’t leave whitish line on my double eyelids. While Clinique’s gives better moisturizing ability, very fine pearly-particles to give more luminiousity, skin becomes oilier faster but it is formulated for dry skin anyway, does  leave whitish line on my double eyelids. Both are water-resistant and good for specific skin types.

When comparing to Hanskin  Super Magic BB cream, you know what, I think the Hanskin BB cream actually combined some features from both Lunasol water cream and Clinique SuperMoisture. That means, Hanskin is moisturizing like Clinique’s yet has better staying power and higher coverage like Lunasol.

Although I was not very impressed by Lunasol Water Cream Foundation after I have tried Korea BB cream and other creamy foundation because they are quite similar in term of finish, just each of them are target different skin types and requisitions. Lunasol Water Cream Foundation is definitely works beautifully for my combination skin for all seasons, but I must finish my Clinique SuperMoisure first before I take this into consideration.
