Review: Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher in Sunny Glow and Updates on P10.

Shimmer Duo Blusher
The Shimmer Duo Blusher pairs matte and shimmer shades to illuminate your features. The matte blush can be used for shading and contouring, whilst the shimmer shade can be used for highlighting. When used together, you can see an instant glow on your face at once. Its ultra-fine texture makes blending a dream. Oil-free and fragrance-free.

The blush is at the bottom of the blush but I don't use because it sheds and it's pretty harsh so I use my Elianto powder blush to blend it in. I really like this blush and you cant see from the way it looks well used. (; The colour payoff is rather good and it can be build up. I usually use both together and it gives a really nice glow to my cheeks and blends in later on with my whole foundation. I dont know what it is but when I pile on too much foundation I usually use a blusher to balance it. Maybe it's a trick or something but it works somewhat. It doesn't make me look like I went overdone with foundation.
As for the shimmers, I hardly detect any when I use the blusher. Maybe it's really really sheer but out of four shades available for the blusher, I like this the best. Others seem a little scary looking. I have naturally pink cheeks, so its really easy to go over with the blusher and I pick sheer blusher and less on the colour cause it'll make me look like a clown. For that simple reason I've stayed away from most blushers but Silkygirl made me change my mind. Good job on that! I use it everyday for work but I probably won't repurchase because there are tonnes of other blushers out there and I think I would explore the market a bit more before deciding on repurchase.
The ingredients list, try to enlarge to see closer. It's pretty good for a drugstore foundation considering I hardly look at Silkygirl at Watsons and Guardians I'd say Alliance Cosmestics had done well with this blusher!

gives a good glow to the skin
colour payoff is medium, not too sheer not too heavy
wallet friendly
easily available

brush can be further improved

That's all for now. Hope you guys enjoy your weekend! (:

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 - Loving it!

Am loving BB's Skin Foundation, so I thought why not I do a review on this before I finish off the sample? Yeah, as you guys can see its pretty much finished so I can't do proper swatches so sorry! But if I do purchase the full size bottle(which I will!) I can do proper swatches. For now I have to depend on the last of the foundation that I have left.

I got the shade from the SA at Parkson in 3.5 Warm Beige and it fitted my skintone perfectly! I usually don't say this cause it's pretty hard to find one that matches me correctly.

The boyfriend commented that my skin look flawless today and it's really natural cause it's like you know there's something there but you can't figure out what is it kind of thing. And cause I don't go for heavy foundations that I will most probably sweat off and look like a mask cause I'm wearing it, I'm loving this foundation to the max!

However, the thing that's stopping me from getting this foundation is the price. Yes! Its around RM160 for 30ml and for that price I can pretty much get a few drugstore foundations! But the shade matches me to perfection and it won't cake on and layering tonnes of foundation on the face won't make me look like I'm wearing a mask, I gladly overlook the price tag factor cause like all you ladies know, it's pretty hard to find the PERFECT shade! So yes! Purchasing it I shall! *Though I might have to save for a few months*

By the way, if you ladies are unsure of your skin colour you guys can always hop over to the counter and ask the SA to match it for you guys. The bunch at BB counter at Parkson is awfully friendly so don't worry bout SA's biting your neck off when you request for a free sample.

Go ahead! Maybe you guys will like this foundation as much as I do.
