Shu Uemura The Lightbulb Foundation Review

10:50:00 AM 3 Comments A+ a-

Hi everyone!

For those who have been following for a while would know that my favourite foundation is the Shu Uemura Face Architect Foundation. Last year Shu Uemura released a new foundation called "The Lightbulb". I picked it up from Singapore Changi airport when I was coming back from Paris last year. I got it in 774 Light Beige.

The foundation came inside a big box, since it also came with it's own beauty blender.

Coverage:

I had eyeliner on my hand and covered it with the foundation. As you can see the foundation has great coverage.

As you can see the coverage is really good

Final look:

Final verdict:
I do like this foundation, however I would rather stick to my Shu Uemura Face Architect foundation. While this foundation has improved in some ways, I find it to cakey for my liking. The coverage is great so if you're someone that wants more coverage, this would be perfect for you. The beauty blender is great and blends really well, however I don't find myself using it much since it's more time consuming (I just usually use my fingers to blend), and washing it is kinda hard. But anyway!

Pros:
- Great coverage
- Doesn't break me out
- Comes with a blender which works well
- Looks great on Asian skin

Cons:
- Expensive
- Too cakey for my liking

Kao Liese Bubble Hair Color Review (Milk Tea Brown)

12:29:00 PM 1 Comments A+ a-

Hi guys!

I get a lot of questions on what I use to dye my hair so today I'm doing a review of the Kao Liese Bubble Hair Color! I usually dye my hair using the colour "Milk Tea Brown"

I usually never dye my hair in a salon because it's SO expensive! I prefer to buy my own hairdye and do it at home myself since it usually just costs me $15 to do so!

I've heard lots of good things about the Kao Liese Bubble Hair Color so I decided to try it out myself!

Instructions

It is SO easy to set up, only takes a few minutes!
Pour the hair colour into the foam solution
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m30s218

Rotate the solution to mix. DO NOT SHAKE and DO NOT be rough with it.
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m34s7

I like to wrap a towel around myself to avoid mess
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m37s39

Replace the lid with the pump
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m44s117

Pump out the solution and apply onto your hair! Be generous with it. I was only applying a little bit at the start but seriously, you get SO much foam so go crazy!
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m52s177

Massage it well into your hair, then leave it for about 30 minutes.

Wash your hair (and use the shampoo provided)

And you're done! No more roots!
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h17m25s9

Final thoughts..

I absolutely LOVE this! It's so cheap and SO easy to do by yourself. I don't like going to the salon and having to pay $100 to get my hair coloured when I can do it at home for less than $15! I definitely recommend this, I will definitely repurchase!
