My experience:
For me, it is really hard to work with loose pigments/powders. For some reason, I find them a little messy. If you are in a hurry, it can get a lot messier. It was my first encounter with powder foundation. Even though for my combination to oily skin, powder and mineral cosmetics are the best to work with; keeps the oily face matte longer than a normal powder and, mineral powder keeps acne prone skin from any break outs.

At first, I was skeptical about using 'Sheer Mineral Foundation'. I am not a huge fan of powder foundations, because I love full coverage foundation. I wouldn't say they have a full coverage, neither I was expecting them to be. But, I am surprised with the way it covers my face, evens out my complexion and blends seamlessly into the skin, giving a flawless finish. For best results, buff the powder into the skin in circular motion, with a fluffy powder brush or Kabuki brush, until you are satisfied with how it looks. If your face is powdery, it means there is a lot of product on the face. They are light in weight, and don't break you out. It's been a month, and I have faced no break outs yet.

The product comes in a plastic jar, with a filter on the top.

You can see, it covers nicely, but not that well. It evens out the skin tone, but you still need a concealer for any discoloration or marks; I am fine with that.

'Sheer Mineral Foundation - Medium Golden', is a yellow toned powder foundation. I chose medium golden because I wanted something with yellow undertones for my fair skin, with a mixture of yellow and pink undertones. As you can see in the above picture, I have used 'Medium Golden' on my face. It doesn't appear too yellow to me, even though it looks a lot yellower in the jar. The yellow color evens out the skin tone. Don't apply too much, else you will look too powdery. As for the shade 'Medium', it is a perfect match for me. It has no yellow undertones, neither too pink; would match a NC 25 to NC 30 skin tone. 

'Sheer Perfection' powder keeps the skin matte for a couple of hours, for me it worked 5 to 6 hours, and sometimes even more. It looks white in the jar, but when applied it has no color and blends in with the skin tone. It makes the face matte instantly, without making you look powdery; neither it makes your pores visible. It is perfect for any skin color.

'Cool Kiss Beauty Enhancer' is an all over powder, to give you a sun-kissed look. I first thought it would be quite dark for my skin tone, and can be used as a bronzer. But, it is perfect to give your face a little color and glow. It looks quite dark in the jar; when applied it is not as dark as it looks. It is perfect for very light and pale skin - not for Asian skin tones. I think 'Warm Kiss' will be a better option for Asians, it is darker than 'Cool Kiss'. I am not too impressed with Cool Kiss, may be some other way of using might look good. May be all over the face for a sun-kissed glow look will look good? 

Earlier, what I didn't like was, my pores were getting visible; especially in the daylight and I felt my face a little too powdery, then I came to know the best way to use it. You need to work in different ways to see how it works on your face. 

All in all, I like the Sheer Powder Foundations and Sheer Perfection the best. I wear both the foundations alternatively everyday, to work. Because, all I need is even out and matte skin.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, I am going to review the most  requested product after my 2nd Haul post :) Yes, it is Watsons Repairing Treatment Wax.

I went to Naheed Supermarket and found this little jar. I had alot of time that day to go through something for my haircare. I picked up a jar from Boots, which was more like a conditioner to me.

Glamourous Face 48+48 Eye shadow Palette [Review]

The wedding season is on, some of you might be looking for good products to buy for yourself for your own wedding or for yourself to get ready for someone else's wedding. It is really hard to find good quality eyeshadows with affordable price. All this year I kept looking for a good eye shadow palette, but was unable to find one. I ended up buying single eye shadows.

Finally, I came to know about this palette through a blogger [Sara Hassan] who did a review about it on her blog. Seriously, after reading the reviews I was so excited to buy it. Thanks to her for sharing. I wouldn't have bought it if I would have seen it before the review. 

So, without wasting the time, let me introduce you to my favourite palette :)
I am in love with this palette. It has all you need. I was looking for so many colours which I found in it. I am really excited to have this palette, and it is my first ever BIG palette. Colours like carbon black, warm browns, pinks, greens are the ones I love the mos…

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.
