Hey Everyone!

Foaming foundations are now the new in the world of make-up. We have cream, liquid, powder even mousse and now it comes in a can. I mean, who would have known right? The first time I spotted a foaming foundation was the Maybelline Pure Mineral BB Mousse. I thought it was really cool and innovative but I expected the foundation to have poor coverage and to be extremely light. Little did I know I was wrong. When I saw the Maybelline Dream Nude Air Foam on shelves in Australia, I grabbed it off the shelves to review.

Maybelline claims that this product is 100% lightweight and offers nude perfection (whatever that means) and gives you effortless application because of the fine pigments. A concern I had was if it would break out on sensitive skin. I have uber sensitive skin these days and I’m pretty prone to break-outs and I’ve heard that foaming products have a chemical in it that isn’t so good for your skin. I’ve been wearing it though and have not seen any major complications.

Hey Everyone,

It’s that time of year again. It’s that time to whip out the folders, pens and put our thinking caps on for back to school. Although the morning bus won’t be driving by my house anytime soon (or ever), I thought I might do a great make-up look you can do for back to school! I asked you all on my facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/roseannetangrs) what make-up look you wanted me to do next and most of you raised your hands to a picture day and school look. I also have FOUR Maybelline Back To School Goodie Bags full of great make-up products (shown above) so at the end of this post, find out how you can win your very own!

Hey Everyone!

I’m down to my final week in Australia and although most of my make-up is packed up and bubble-wrapped and I probably swore to myself not to buy anymore, I came across these two babies and I couldn’t resist. But trust me, I do have a decent explanation for purchasing and that is well, I’ve never tried anything like them before and they are both spankin’ new products . Plus, I’m leaving so I should be putting my paws on everything I can’t get back in Singapore! Here’s a little haul of the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Make-Up foundation and the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam! I am throughly excited to review both but here are my first impressions of each of them if you’re already on the edge of your seats.

Hey Everyone!

I believe that my lashes have stage fright. They’re a little scared naturally to be out in the open. In fact, any longer and I might look like a potential Snuffleofogus from Sesame Street. True story. Today I’m going to be doing a review on the Maybelline Magnum Volum’ Express Ultracomb mascara. It’s coming out in Singapore if it hasn’t already and I have to say it’s one of my all time favorites. I love it!

The Brush: 

The brush reminds me of a zebra which it shouldn’t because it’s yellow and black instead of black and white. And it’s not a brush, it’s a comb. It has black zebra stripes which are holes that fill in with the mascara and you use the non-curved side to apply the mascara which I know is a new behaviour. The first time I used it, bimbotic I know, I used the yellow and obviously nothing happened. So use the stripey side, please. Comb mascaras are actually underrated. They do better for me in terms of defining, curling and lengthening!

Hey Everyone,

Every now and then when I visit the drugstore, there will be a shiny new foundation that’s just come out. This one in particular has been on the shelves for a while now but that doesn’t make it not suitable for being relatively new. A foundation that boasts to be the perfect fit for your skin and coming from one of my favourite brands, Maybelline, I just had to get it. In this review, I’ll be talking about the claims of this foundation, the texture, colors, and overall look. It seems that Maybelline also recently changed the name of their colors. I’m usually a nude but I think they changed that color to a ‘nude beige’. I can say now that this foundation isn’t one of my favourites.

Hey Everyone!

You can probably tell that I’m on a drugstore liquid foundation rampage. Actually, that rampage has been going on for quite some time now. There’s just something about foundation that makes me happy. I think it does the best job in transforming a face, it instantly takes away scars and redness, making your complexion flawless (well the good ones do at least). That and concealer and blush are probably necessities in ever makeup vanity. Today I’ll be adding into the archives a much loved foundation, the Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse foundation.

Packaging

Smart packaging. There’s no extra cap to drop and lose because the bottle has a twist function that allows for the foundation to be pumped out. I love pump bottles so much better because you can control how much of the foundation you need for the face. About 2-3 pumps is sufficient for mine.
