♪ FOTD, HOTD & review some recent good finds!

First of all thank you everyone who sent me your regards! I have recovered.. for a while actually haha~ as Ai said it's been really busy for us lately so I havn't updated till today, I'm waiting for a friend so I'm taking a break from studying and doing this update hehehe~~ I have actually accumulated quite a lot FOTD's to update but since I also took pics today I'll use the fresh ones!

My bangs is finally long enough to be styled!! I can actually curl them without them falling on my face now haha~ meaning my bangs now blends in with the hair on two sides after I curl them :D Although this styling is really pretty rough, because I have so little time to get ready now, I actually just curled the bangs and some strands of my hair with a hot curler; this is a quick tip for days you have no time to curl the whole head but still wanna give some bounce to your hair. It also looks more natural than curling whole head :>

Eye makeup is super minimalist and basic, as I only used one colour of shadow on my lid, I made sure the lashes are full and eye liner is light enough. Here I'm still using my all time staple shadow, Cezanne Sweets Sweets perfect eye palatte, the earthy one I used many times in previous post.

Products used on eye:
  • Sweets Sweets perfect eye
  • Guerlain eye pencil in Bronze Noir N.7
  • Clinique high impact mascara

Here I wanna share a good powder I have recently purchased; it's the Physicians Formula Mineral Colour Correcting Powder; I have only used their bronzer before but since this product promises No talc, fragrance free, paraben free and the line in general is for sensitive skin; I decided to give it a try. I usually don't use powder, because the foundation I normally use is the Mary Kay mineral foundation which is already powdery; but since spring is here I have been trying to find a powder to lighten my base makeup.

Review ( ♪♪♪♪♪ being the perfect score!)

-Coverage ♪♪♪♪
It covers redness and oilyness really well; what I love about this one is that you can actually rub a little of the specific colour area to cover little area; i.e I used my finger to rub the green powder onto my pimple to give it extra coverage. However the powder is not fine enough for my expectation; you can click on the image to see more clearly; so after brushing on the powder I need to use another clean sponge to press my skin to make the powder more fitted (? couldn't find a better word) to my skin; otherwise it seems powery.

-Colour ♪♪
At first I was afraid it's going to be too white because there is only one selection of colour; btw if you are the type that likes white skin this would a really good product because it does brighten you skin a lot! But since I only use a powder brush to brush a thin layer on my skin after concealer, it mainly brightened my skin without making me look a few shades whiter. Still I worry if I can continue to use this product in summer because I like getting some tan in summer. For those of you who stays white all year round (like Ai! haha~ :p) you can give this product a try~

-Lasting power ♪♪♪♪
Its lasting power is super good like a mineral foundation; even my Mary Kay still leaves me grease at the end of the day; but these pics are taken after I came back from school after half a day of sitting in front of computer, walking outside, going window shopping etc. lol~~ there is still some oily spot at my T-zone (I'm super oily at T-zone) but other parts are still pretty good

Versatile colour correction, can be used on specific trouble area. Stays quite well throughout the day and does not seem powery; no talc; not irrating in any way so far.

Only one selection of colour; can be too white for some skin colour; the powder is not fine enough so needs extra step to press with a clean sponge.

It comes with a kind of cute brush, which I never used... I use my own powder brush because this brush is too soft and thin.

How it looks on my skin after school; I admit I have already blotted my T-zone a little.. haha~~ but you can still tell how the powder stayed all day and the natural coverage, it really does not seem powdery. You can click on the image to view bigger size, I have left this pic very big so you can see very clearly :>
  • Benefit Eye Bright pencil
  • Covermark concealer stick in Y-1
  • Physician formular colour correcting powder
  • Dior show blush in Catwalk pink
  • Guerlain terracotta moisturising bronzer in N.3
On the side note I bought this very spring pastel colour from Sally Hanson Hard as Nails polish called Fairy Nice; after Ai found out about this super cheap line which has many nice colours! I put on base+2 layers of Fairy Nice+ top coat; it's exactly the same colour with some more expensive line's new spring pastel lines but only cost $2, when it was on sale :DD

P.S the video which we said we'll make will have to be postponed to after April 19th, which is our final presentation day; sorry about the delay and we'll try to post as much as possible during these days so please check back at us~~ :D


  1. Thanks for sharing with us this product, it's definitely new to me! I'm surprised to Physicians Formula out with a product like this.

  2. Glad to know you've recovered mei!

    The look is really simple and natural, very nice. It's a look I would wear daily. =]

    I've heard good things about Physicians Formula products but I probably won't get this one. I think it would be too light for my skin. I do like how you can use different colors for cover up though. Thanks for sharing your experience. very helpful.

    The pastel nail polish is perfect for spring time! I think I'm going to get myself a pastel color too. I kind of want a teal or mint green.

    As for the Sigma brushes, I think they're pretty good. Even though I don't have any other brushes to compare them to, I'm liking them a lot so far.
    Also, I really like the Coastal Scents palette. I think it's a good deal. You get to sample so many different colors! Usually each shadow from MAC costs $11+. I don't know how much drugstore shadows are but they can add up.
    I think both purchase have been a good investment so far. I haven't had any problems with either.

  3. Im glad you're feeling a whole lot better ^^
    my bangs are so short and when i curl them i look so weird. haha! anyway, doesn't Physicians Formula product smells weird?? i know i remember testing at the store and it had such a stench i didn't even bother tyring it out.

    Cezanne is that a japanese brand? I read on anohter blog that the cezanne powder is really good for setting makeup. Oo do u know where we can purchase it other than ebay?

  4. Babybubblz: ya me too~ but they actually have a whole line of talc free mineral press powder that worth a try ^^
    Serena:Thank you~ and ya this one IS too light even for me in summer i think, but i think i will purchase from them again in a warm tone of the talc free powder, you should check it out too! haha im not advertising for them.. *hem hem* i also recently bought a mint green polish the one from revlon, but haven't have time to wear it yet.. next time ill put swatch! and i'v been thinking of gettng sigma brush and the coastal scents for so long!! but im debating btw the matte and the shiny palatte...

    bunnyface: thank you^^ i went to smell it lol but it has no smell at all! maybe they improved the formula?
    cezanne is actually my favourite drug store cheaper line in japan; i love their eye shadow, blush, powder, primer etc lol, and nic nic said the loose powder is good too! their pressed powder (blue case and pink case) has realy high ranking in japan, i buy them when i go there, but im sure you can find them through japanese shoppping site or ebay? to be honest i dunno any site so sorry im not much help there.. but here is the site of the ranking, its the biggest review site in japan (like our makeupalley) the 3rd place and 8th place are both powder from cezanne, its in japanese so if you have any question dont hesitate to ask me ^^

  5. bunnyface: oh apparently the #9 is a new powder of Cezanne too! wow i didnt know that~ making me wanna buy their powder next time lol

  6. I tried your way to deeper the double lid, and the effect is amazing! hahaha
    I'm doing it every day now~

  7. Loretta: i'm glad you found my tips useful!! :D

  8. i'm definitely going to try Physicians now! I always see it at SDM but I'm not too attracted to their bronzer =/ and is Sally chipping for you?? I find it chips really easily but it's so cheap that I usually don't care :p

  9. aw i'm glad you're feeling better! i really like Physicians Formula products too but i've never seen that powder before. thanks for sharing this with us! i'm gonna see if i can find it at my store so i can check it out hehe :)

    thanks for the birthday wishes btw! sorry i'm so slow in replying back :( i feel like i haven't been on blogger in ages b/c of school. but i absolutely love the mac lippies too! they've been coming out with some pretty colours, i can't keep up with them all! makes me want to buy everything haha :)

  10. Pretty look!

    Just came across your blog!

    It is lovely!


  11. Mei! that site is really useful~ thanks for telling me about it.
    I actually found out that Mihokofamily or Mihokoshop both has cezanne products and bobodave online shop too.

    But they don't offer the loose powder version =[
