When it comes to foundations, I have always preferred liquid so here is my humble list of mineral foundation reviews. Enjoy!


Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation ($25)
While a friend back in college raved about this, my experience with it was hooooorrible! Instead of the “creamy, delicately soft texture” it claims to provide, it dried out my skin, accentuated dry patches and left my face feeling itchy and irritated. It also did not cover well and was very shimmery. On the bright side, the wide color range, SPF 15 and the fact that you can mix and match different shades to get your perfect match are definitely its pluses. I would highly recommend you try this out at the store before you buy it.

Overall Rating: C-

Here is my passport picture that I took while I was in Hong Kong. I figured I would post it on here to go with an older entry that I wrote about makeup tips for taking passport/year book pictures. As you can see, less is definitely more here.

Hey guys, I am finally back in Chicago! I am still trying to get everything settled before I start work next Monday but I will definitely update this blog more and I will be adding some videos later too. Thank you *so* much for waiting!

Hey guys, I finally made it back home (Hong Kong) and I have been uber busy running errands and getting ready to move back to Chicago. If you guys need a cp from any Asian brands (Shiseido, Kose, Kanebo, Missha, Laneige, DHC etc) while I’m here, just holla. Here are some of the things I think you guys should check out:

* Eye Talk/glue/tape to create a crease (see this entry for more info)

* Tuke-Matuge Clip (this is a clip to apply falsies and trust me it makes the application like *so* much easier – here’s a picture of it)

* Japanese whitening/hydrating paper masks
