Buying a Foundation with Sephora’s Color IQ Without Test Swatch

For those who don't know, there's an iPad and a skin tone detector at the Sephora store for you to determine your skin colour. After scanning your face with that device, the clever Sephora will save your result into your account and match you with all the possible foundations on their site. Hurray for technology for making our shopping life easier than ever and saving my lazy ass too! In fact, I personally do not like to shop at the store, I feel too overwhelmed and shopping online is a lot more resourceful! Without doing test swatches at the Sephora store, I directly ordered a foundation from their site to see whether the Color IQ is really that intelligent.

Shop Miss A Double Haul!

Now that you know all about the magic of Shop Miss A (click here for review of the site), let us tell you more precisely about the products we ordered. This is what Melissa got: 2 individual eyeshadow from Princessa. One in a warm brown #836 and cool taupe brown “Clay” #819. When I received them, I found out it comes with a 2 ends applicator which is pretty cool for the price I paid.

Surprise! 3 makeup brushes from e.l.f: blending brush, eyeshadow brush and a smudge brush. A matte & shimmer duo palette from Kleancolor in 02 Alluring Touch. Needed an affordable palette with neon colours. It would be nice to create a neon colour look sometimes without wasting money on expensive shadows! A nail clipper. Yes, …

Caudalie Skincare Obsession

Obsessed With: Caudalie!

Let’s be honest: who doesn’t love wine? Especially when it takes care of your skin! This is exactly what Mathilde Thomas and her husband had in mind when they founded Caudalie, the cosmetics brand originating from Bordeaux, France. Born in a family that owns a vineyard, Mathilde quickly realized the rich potential of grapes. Together with Professor Vercauteren, one of the world’s specialists in polyphenols (the magic ingredient that is found in grape seeds), they formulated a few face creams that were initially sold in pharmacies in Bordeaux. They quickly set up their own team of researchers, in order to offer the best of what grapes have to offer. But why are grapes so special? They contain polyphenols, powerful anti-oxidants that act as amazing skin youth protectors. Grapes also contain resveratrol, a powerful anti-ageing agent, and viniferine, the most effective natural molecule that fights dark spots. The company’s ethics are also impeccable: in 2006, they removed parabens from all products, and they are also very committed to ecology. Read more about this here. With so many …
