Loreal Warehouse Sale 2015 Haul Montreal

Luckily I I had the chance to go to the bi-annually l'oreal warehouse sale this year again because my mom's friend got a ticket. Didn't know what to get but ended with those things instead. I am running out of moisturizer from my korean products so picked up this Biotherm set. Got it for $24 and it sells on Amazon for $78, cannot believe it. Besides tat I picked up the L'oreal 48 hrs Ideal Moisture Tint also, it's like a tinted lotion with 25spf for $4.75$ so why not? I used it this week so far, like it but would probably wait until it gets hotter since all my other products contains SPF already.

Next, I spent like one  hour choosing Essie nail colors since I can't decide! It's $4.75 for one or buy 5 get 1 free so comes out to $4 bucks each. I keep buying nail polishes but rarely put them because I am lazy lazy and not good at it at applying at all. I guess practice makes perfect.

Wearing the boxer shorts color now and love it!

Etude House Precious Mineral Moist Any Cushion Natural Beige W13 Review

So I've decided to try a BB Cushion. It's all raging over all Korea right now. As a starter I didn't want to buy anything too over the top in terms of price range so I decided to get the Etude House Precious Mineral Moist Any Cushion Natural Beige W.
  1. What is BB Cushion?
 Basically it's similar to BB and CC Cream but the packaging is different. It comes in a compact box  and the product is located under a sponge so when you use a puff and press it against the sponge product comes out! Very cool I know.

The front of the box:

The side of the box:

You open the box and voila there's a puff with a mirror:

And here's the magic sponge:

You just press the puff against the sponge until the product comes out. I like it that it doesn't come out a lot as if you were to use foundation from a bottle for example.

The colour: I was scared that it would be to light as most
Korean BB creams are but surprisingly it matches my skin tone well.

The Smell: Smells fresh and not really overwhelming

The application process: Easy and breezy, in about 2 minutes you will be done with the whole face. Good for late morning people!

What I like:
  1. Does not break me out - it's rare that Korean products break me out so no surprise here
  2. Easy to apply and not messy at all
  3. Buildable and not cakey 
  4. Colour matches skin tone well
What I like less:
  1. Staying power - lasts for a couple of hours only
  2. Gets oily - maybe because I have combination skin 
So I've been using it for 2 weeks so far and will continue using it as I pretty much like it for now!

Loreal Warehouse Haul 2014 Part 1

So I had the chance to go to the bi early Loreal Warehouse Sale in Montreal this autumn again (yeah that was last month) and go the following items. I went twice actually with a different friend each time. As usual you need a ticket to get in. Just ask around your friends, relatives, coworkers you might be lucky! Total was about 40$! 

So this is what I got:
1. L'oreal True Match Nature Mineral Foundation in bare nude  - 6$
2. Maybeline Color Show in (Dotty, Blue Marks the spot ) and two other colors. Reviews of the confetti nail polish to come! 1.50$ each yay
3. Loreal Visible Lift CC Eye Concealer (using it right now, it's not bad but not suitable if you are.if I remember really looking to conceal acnes or scars since it's runny and coverage is minimal) 4$ if I remember well
4. L'oreal visible lift CC Cream - 3.75$ so cheap!
5. Loreal New York Baby Lips ( 2 pinks and one orange, tried the pink liked it so far!) 2 bucks each
