Makeup and Beauty Product Reviews and Swatches

Proper cleansing is the first step to clear skin, which is why I have been practising the Asian Double Cleansing routine for over 10 years now. The routine involves using two complimentary products, normally a cleansing oil to dissolve makeup and sebum followed by a creamy/foamy soap to remove residue and gently exfoliate. I have tried all kinds of products out there and my newly discovered Kanebo Sensai Silky Purifying Cleansing Oil and Silky Purifying Creamy Soap, are handsdown the best!

My latest favorite liquid foundation to fake glowy, flawless skin? Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup.

Formulated with Retin-A, Matrixyl, Skin Tightener ST and vitamins A and E to stimulate the production of collagen, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin texture, this foundation promises to provide super, long-lasting coverage for a luminous complexion. It comes in a 30ml bottle with a pump and is oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free and contains SPF 15.
