New way to Apply Liquid Foundation?! - Vibrating Foundation Applicator!


Twitter & Instagram:  tinaHL82
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/tinaHL82

So, there really are two types of these applicators, the vibrating ones and the patting ones.  The one mentioned in my video is the vibrating applicator, where the sponge vibrates to distribute the foundation.  The patting ones are applicators with fast patting motions, but with end results similar to the vibrating applicators - both work to distribute the liquid foundation/BB cream more evenly, giving an airbrush finish.  The only thing I can seem to compare this to is the Clarisonic cleaning brush, but instead of distributing cleansing foam, the vibrating foundation applicator are designed to spread liquid foundation/BB cream evenly across your skin.

There are many different vibrating foundation applicators out there - just image google vibrating foundation applicator, and a plethora of pictures comes up, but my advice is, if your going to buy one, make sure it gives a vibration count of at least 5000 vibrations per minute.  From what I can deduce from the 'scientific' background is that the more counts per minute the applicator gives, the better the distribution, and the more flawless the foundation will look!  It comes as no surprise that I would also recommend a Korean branded one - after all, it did originate from there!

My personal opinion?!  I do think it's great for everyone to have one of these on their vanity table.  While I personally don't use it/don't need to use it everyday, they are great for special occasions and for days where you need an extra flawless look.  I personally see a difference to how my foundation looks when using the vibrating applicator.  Flawless doesn't even describe it!  My skin looks airbrushed no matter how close to the mirror I get & for days when I'm feeling less confident & a bit self-depriciating the literal perfect makeup always makes me that little bit better!

Alas there's no point having the perfect applicator if you don't have your perfect foundation, after all, there's only so much something can do!  Also make sure you buy a few back up sponges as well, as even though many are advertised as antibacterial, I personally still prefer to wash the sponges constantly as my skin is prone to breakout and waiting for one to dry is a pain.

So just to show you a few vibrating/patting foundation applicators.  By far, the more popular one out there is the Enprani Face Designer Auto Pat:

Enprani are so confident in their auto pat that they package it with their own brand foundation!

TonyMoly are a more affordable Korean Brand and is more basic in design, but works just as well

Mistyle Vibrating Applicator has a swivelling head so easier to get round all the curves of the face

The Haan Digital Foundation applicator is also a popular brand with their kit of foundation & extra heads

So whichever you decide to choose (vibration or pat motion) if you decide to choose any at all, I personally love I have a couple of these at home, and definitely think if your an liquid foundation person, this is a must for days you want airbrushed skin.

Review: Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation

Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation:

http://www.boots.com/en/Maybelline-Fit-Me-Foundation_1279214/

• No oils, no waxes, no nonsense
• Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be…fresh, breathing, natural
• Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin's natural highs and lows to show through
• Non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested



To summarise what I reviewed in the video, this foundation gives a light to light/medium coverage, feels light weight and gives a smooth slightly powdered finish.  It went on really well using a kabuki brush leaving no streaks, did not separate, move, or disappear on my combination/oily skin throughout the day either.  It also lasted a good full day, say from 7am til about 7pm, so staying power is pretty good.  However, I do use primer & powder when using this foundation, as it transfers really easily, so you need to be cautious when using this foundation.  If you are one of those that touches your face throughout the day etc, I definitely do not recommend this foundation.  Another thing to note is it did oxidise throughout the day, and though it didn't affect me much as I'm sort of between two shades anyway, those with paler skin may want to buy the next shade down.

People I do not recommend this to are those with dry skin as the powdery finish can emphasise any dry areas, & definitely not for those with really oily skin as I guess the transfer will only be worse with really oily skin!

The bottle comes with a pump which is nice, however, the pump does release quite a fair amount in one pump so just use one pump first and if you need more then go for another.  The foundation comes out quite watery, however, it does provide the stated coverage when applied.

Overall, I've used this foundation for over a month now & still grab for it once in a while.  I like the finish it gives me, and I learnt not to touch my face whenever I have foundation on which is another added bonus I guess.  The shade fits me well - I bought 220 (I'm an NC25-27) and like I said, it lasts all day.  It's also the only drug-store liquid foundation that hasn't broken me out, so I'm impressed with that as well.  While it's not the best foundation out there, for the price, packaging and formula, I consider it pretty good!

Comes in around 12 shades (from Boots) & caters for both pink and yellow undertones.

Mascara Review: Cargo Lash Activator



Follow me:
YouTube:  www.youtube.com/user/tinaHL82
Twitter & Instagram: tinaHL82
So firstly, this is what Cargo Cosmetics has to say about this mascara:

"We asked ourselves: What would make a mascara better? Imagine a mascara that boosts the appearance of lashes after 30 days! Imagine state-of-the-art ingredients that promote lash vitality! In clinical trials, LashActivator™ was shown to offer the optimal environment for healthy lash growth and reduced lash loss. The result was a 169% rate of improvement of lash growth. The formula is made with a unique multi-faceted complex which contains Marine Algae extracts to increase the appearance of lash density; Citrus-derived Flavonoid, a proven ingredient to promote microcirculation for optimal lash health; and a Peptide-biotin complex to help slow the rate of lash loss. Try it for 30 days and see the difference for yourself!"


The Ingredient List:

Aqua (Water), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), Cera Alba (Beeswax), Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Silica, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Acrylates Copolymer, Tribehenin, Cera Carnauba (Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax), Triethanolamine, Synthetic Beeswax, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Candelilla Cera (Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax), Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Phenoxyethanol, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Potassium Sorbate, Lecithin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, Propylene Glycol, PPG-26-Buteth-26, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Pelvetia Canaliculata Extract, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Panicum Miliaceum (Millet) Seed Extract, Xanthan Gum, Butylparaben, Apigenin, Isobutylparaben, Ethylparaben, Oleanolic Acid, Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1.
My Thoughts:

I've been using this Mascara close to 3 months now, and my thought is that it's a good mascara...BUT, lets break it down!  Firstly, it's claim for healthier lashes, with reduce lash loss & increase lash growth - I personally did not see much difference in all these areas, maybe it helped, maybe it didn't, but I can't see a difference, and for these areas to be the main selling point of the mascara, it hasn't done so well.  HOWEVER, as for it being a mascara itself, it's pretty good.  I like how my lashes look after 2 coats, nothing too dramatic, but gives my lashes a beautiful natural look - my lashes were definately darker, there was a bit of added volume, a bit of added length, and truthfully, I have reached for it the most these few months!  I think the thing that impressed me the most, is that for a mascara that doesn't state that it's waterproof, it didn't a really good job keeping my lashes curled to some extent throughout the whole day, and trust me when I say it's usually impossible, and the only mascaras that ever work at keeping my lashes curled are asian brands!

Although, I do love how it gives my lashes an amazing 'natural' look, I have to say, chances of me repurchasing this is slim to none.  Only because for this price tag, I would expect it to do every inch of what it says, & for me, the original reason why I wanted to try this out was because of the 'benefical' effects it should of had for my lashes.

Price: 25GBP

BB Cream Review: BRTC Aqua Rush Water Drop

Twitter & Instagram: tinaHL82

Where you can buy BRTC BB creams:
http://www.brtcstore.com/BRTC-Blue-Science.htm


 
So, I've used this BB Cream for about 2 years now, and nowadays, it's the one I tend to reach for in the winter because of its hydrating effect.  When using this BB Cream, my skin feels moisturised but not too oily throughout the day (though I do powder in the morning, and use blotting sheets during the day).  This BB Cream gives a medium to buildable full coverage without feeling too heavy on the skin.  Those that has dark discolouration around the eyes will probably require an additional concealer, however, those with light discolouration or hyperpigmentation will probably get away without additional concealer.

I have oily/combination skin, and have never broken out due to this BB cream, I always recommend cleansing thoroughly in the evenings!  In general, this BB cream is recommended for those with dry and/or problem skin, but like I said, I tend to use it in the winter and have definately benefited from it!

Things you'll need to be aware of is that it does have a grey cast, however, this does do after about half an hour or so depending on your skin type I guess, and it does oxidise slightly but now heavily so.  So for the shade that this BB Cream gives, standalone, it is suitable for anyone NC-15-20 and lower.  For those that require a darker shade, I would suggest colour correcting it with foundation, which is what I do as on my palest days, I'm NC-25 at best.

Most importantly is that it has an SPF of 28 which is suitable for both summer and especially winter when we tend to forget we still need sunscreen!

Straight out of the tube, the colour can be a bit deceiving, as it looks darker than it actually will be.

Slight blending, a grey cast can be seen and looks alot paler than previous photo, but feels very fresh and moisturising!
Medium to buildable full coverage with a light feel.

As for he science behind this BB Cream, it's best if I leave that to BRTC to explain (taken from http://www.brtcstore.com/brtc/aqua-bb-cream-spf-30):

"This unique formula releases moisture drops to provide ample hydration and help relieve skin sensitiveness for a more vibrant and flawless makeup look, added SPF28/PA**."

It has natural hydrating and moisturising properties, includes anti-oxidant and anti-aging ingredients, and has mineral & nutrition supply made from deep ocean water and 7 flower extracts.

Price:  Approx. 23.00GBP

Review: Collection 2000 Fix Me Up & Primed and Ready


Follow me:
YouTube:  http://www.youtube.com/user/tinaHL82?feature=mhee
Twitter & Instagram: tinaHL82

First of all, Primed & Ready:

To put it bluntly, I'm not a big fan of this Primer.  Firstly, this primer really broke me out.  Yes, I do have sensitive skin, however, I have also used many silicon based primer and have never had such a reaction before.  For this reason, I have only used it around 3 times.  From those times, I found that it didn't reduce the appearance of my pores, nor blurred them out, and it didn't control my oils at all.  It does give a smoothe canvas for when you first apply your foundation, however, it didn't help my makeup stay put for very long.  I usually do love Collection 2000 products, but this primer was a bit of a let down.  I definately do not reccommend this for anyone with sensitive or oily skin.



What Collection 2000 says about this Primer:

Collection Primed & Ready Smoothing Make up Primer preps the skin, providing a beautiful base for easier make-up application and ensures your make-up remains intact throughout the day.

The silky formula of the COLLECTION Primed & Ready Smoothing Make-up Primer glides onto skin, providing a light coverage for a flawless complexion, and a noticeably natural finish.

Preened perfection is just one step away with the COLLECTION Smoothing Make-up Primer, as it seeks to minimize problem pores, smooth uneven skin and hide unsightly blemishes.

This multi-tasking primer makes make-up application effortless and keeps your complexion smooth and flawless all day. Whether you’re blending foundation, securing sumptuous lips, experimenting with eye colours or going bold with blusher, you can be confident that your canvas will remain crystal clear.

Next, the 'Fix me up' makeup fixer:

Now, I am definately impressed with this makeup fixer.  As instructed, I used 4 spritz after applying foundation and powder, waited for it to dry then did the rest of my makeup.  This made my makeup stay on for a full day (about 15 hrs) without the need to reapply.  Its didn't stop my oil from coming through, however, after blotting out with blotting sheets, my base makeup looked as fresh as when I first applied it.  Yes, it is a small bottle, but as I don't reccommend anyone using an alcohol base makeup fixer everyday (only as occasion requires), it does last me quite a while, and I do believe it works just as well as the skindinavia makeup fixers.



What Collection 2000 says about this makeup fixer:

From the minute you’re made-up to the moment you dress down, you can remain the marvel of freshly applied foundation.

Duration is guaranteed from dusk ‘til dawn, without a worry of washing off, fading down or patching up.Any glam-girl-on-the-go knows how tedious touching-up and re-applying make-up can be, but now this non-stick, weightless make-up setter offers any budding beauty a ‘barely there’ sheen for the ultimate in luminous finishes.
No matter how stressful your day, this beauty BFF will be on-side to stay-away any un-wanted imperfections, giving a long-lasting flawless finish.

Both products cost around 5.99GBP each.

Review: Garnier Caffine Anti-Dark Circles 2-in-1 Roll-on



Follow me:
YouTube:  http://www.youtube.com/user/tinaHL82?feature=mhee
Twitter & Instagram:  tinaHL82

I absolutely love this eye roll-on.  The formula is light and refreshing, does not cake, does not settle into my fine lines, and brightens my undereye area.  It also lasts the full day, and that's without using powder on top.  I have used this every morning for the past 2 months, and can't see myself changing from this routine any time soon.  It has a very light coverage, so those that needs a concealer to cover dark undereye circles, this isn't for you, and I never recommend putting heavy concealer under the eyes then putting this on top as it can cause cakiness.  For days when I need slightly more coverage, I do put on Bobbi Brown's Corrector on under this, as I would do if I was using any concealer.
What Garnier says about this product:
This is our 1st 2-in-1 eye product: 1- eye care with caffeine to hydrate and refresh; 2- tinted mineral pigments to instantly cover dark circles. The combination in a cooling roll-on applicator works wonders! It’s ideal for a gentle, hygienic application in the sensitive eye area and the non-messy roll-on applicator is convenient for use on-the-go.
Garnier Caffeine Anti-dark Circles 2-in-1 Roll-on has a 2-in-1 formula:

  1. Moisturising eye cream & a cooling roller ball: refreshes and hydrates tired-looking eyes
  2. With mineral enriched pigments it instantly covers dark circles
     
Available in 4 shades to perfectly adapt to your skin tone:
  • Very Fair
  • Fair
  • Medium
  • Dark

How to Use

For best results with Garnier Caffeine Anti-dark Circles 2-in-1 Roll-on:
Whenever dark circles appear, apply Caffeine Anti-dark Circles Roll-on, in circular massaging motions, onto the under eye area, from the inside towards the temples. The 2-in-1 eye care instant concealer formula will be applied automatically via the roller ball. Gently blend in the formula with finger tips, as if makeup, for flawless coverage of dark circles.

Review: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

I've always been very skeptical about 'western brand' BB creams as all the ones I've tried have been very disappointing.....still, it hasn't stopped me from carrying on and trying more out!  Next to catch my eye was the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream.  It has been out in the UK for quite a long time now and after um-ing and ahh-ing, I decided to just get it.

"Your 8-in-1 Skin Perfector: Imperfections look blurred, a natural looking glow, fresh feel, compliments skin tone, skin looks smooth, hydrates, protects, oil-free"

In the UK, it comes in four shades: Universal, Light, Medium and Dark.  At the moment, I'm between NC25-NC30 - leaning more towards NC30, and decided to buy the Light shade as for some reason, medium just didn't sit right with me when trying out on my hand in-store.  I'm glad I bought the light shade as it's perfect for me.

It comes out looking a bit pale, however, once applied to the skin, it blends in really well with no grey cast at all.  It also oxidises a bit quite quickly which brought it to my perfect shade, so I didn't have to leave the house looking pale!  As the photo shown below, smoothes and blends out really well.


I have combination/oily skin that leans on the oilier side in the summer, and found that this BB cream works well for my skin.  It didn't totally control my oils, however, even after a full day of wear, I hardly needed to touch nor blot away my oils excessively.  So this is definately one BB cream that is suitable for those with oilier skin. 

The coverage is light as is with most 'western brand' BB creams and I'd say it's possible to build slightly to light-medium coverage, however, even without building up, it does a good job blurring out blemishes, then only a light brush of concealer will be needed for darker blemishes.  It hasn't clogged up my pores nor caused any breakouts which is great as most things causes my blemish prone skin to break out!

The formula feels really light and refreshing thanks to its oil-free, water-based gel formula, so definately a great summer BB cream.  Because of the light consistancy, there is no caking, nor does it sit in my fine lines when used under the eye.  And to top it off, it has an SPF 30, which isn't as high as some of the 'eastern brand' BB creams but definately one of the higher ones compared to other 'western brand' BB creams.

So out of all the 'western brand' BB creams I've tried (including Clinique, Dior, MAC, Garnier, collection 2000 etc etc etc), this is top of the list at the moment, however, next up is the L'oreal Nude Magique BB cream, which again, I've been eyeing for quite a while!

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream retails for around 9.99 GBP.

Origins Plantscription Foundation

As someone who loves the Origins Plantscription range (yes, I know I'm using Laneige at the moment, give me a chance to finish that and I'll be back to Origins as it's easier to get hold of in the UK!), I'm looking forward to this foundation!



Origins Plantscription range centres around its' main ingredient 'Anogeissus' - which is derived from the leaves and bark of the Anogeissus tree and used as a natural wound healer and antimicrobial agent.

This foundation is fortified with Anogeissus, this age-defying formulation helps to visibly correct the appearance of lines and wrinkles both immediately and over time. This oil-free liquid foundation floats onto skin and blends easily, providing lightweight hydration and leaving skin appearing smooth, perfected and more youthful-looking with a naturally radiant finish. Soft-focus optics help mask visible pores and conceal imperfections without caking or settling into creases. This long-wearing formulation offers long-term anti-aging benefits along with valuable SPF 15 protection.

Active ingredientsPurpose
octinoxate 3.00%Sunscreen
titanium dioxide 1.40%Sunscreen

Inactive ingredients
water\aqua\eau • cyclopentasiloxane • phenyl trimethicone • peg-10 dimethicone • butylene glycol • dimethicone • isocetyl alcohol • caprylic/capric triglyceride • isododecane • wheat germ glycerides • magnesium sulfate • tribehenin • anogeissus leiocarpus bark extract • rosa damascena flower oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, pelargonium graveolens flower oil, illicium verum (anise) oil, citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) fruit oil, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, myristica fragrans (nutmeg) kernel oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) oil, citrus nobilis (mandarin orange) peel oil, citrus medica limonum (lemon) peel oil, litsea cubeba fruit oil, hibiscus abelmoschus extract, geraniol, linalool, citronellol, limonene • mimosa tenuiflora bark extract • salvia sclarea (clary) extract • scutellaria baicalensis root extract • sigesbeckia orientalis (st. paul's wort) extract • foeniculum vulgare (fennel) seed extract • disteardimonium hectorite • hordeum vulgare (barley) extract\extrait d'orge • triticum vulgare (wheat) germ extract • castanea sativa (chestnut) seed extract • centaurium erythraea (centaury) extract • anthemis nobilis (chamomile) flower extract • simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil • peg/ppg-18/18 dimethicone • glycerin • squalane • polysilicone-11 • ethylhexyl palmitate • cholesterol • linoleic acid • ethylhexylglycerin • methicone • polymethylsilsesquiane • palmitoyl oligopeptide • caffeine • tocopheryl acetate • sodium hyaluronate • sorbitan sesquioleate • sorbitan stearate • aminopropyl ascorbyl phosphate • trehalose • triethyl citrate • hydrogenated lecithin • propylene carbonate • sorbitan isostearate • laureth-7 • maltodextrin • ascorbyl palmitate • xanthan gum • alumina • chloroxylenol • phenoxyethanol • [+/- titanium dioxide (ci 77891) • iron oxides (ci 77491, ci 77492, ci 77499)]



It is available in twelve shades and provides medium buildable coverage and remain color true - something that I would love if its true....don't you just hate it when you think you've found the perfect shade then it oxidises making you look a bit too bronzed for your body or worse....look orange!

The foundation will be avalible in Stores in August 2012.

    Review: Love My Skin (LMS) Spotlight 8


    I know I've got a lip sync problem with this video but for the life of me I can't figure how to sort it out! If any of you know how I can edit this then let me know!

    About the Spotlight:

    They are an innovative luxury skincare range that uses Red Light Therapy (RLT), a natural and safe skin treatment proven to clear spots fast.  LMS Spotlights use a very specific light wavelength combined with a proven power level and treatment time. This ensures delivery of the optimum level of light (Joules/cm2) to the skin, proven to improve our skins natural healing abilities.  Red Light Therapy (RLT) is the application of red light to the skin, originally developed for NASA. It is a safe, natural wavelength used in skin treatment that is clinically proven and medically tested to treat mild to moderate acne and spots.

    When cells are stressed (for example by a spot) Nitric Oxide levels increase which inhibits the cell's energy manufacturing process affecting the skin’s natural ability to heal itself. The primary effect of the RLT in LMS Spotlights is to penetrate the skin cells to force out Nitric Oxide and stimulate anti-oxidants. This has been shown to reduce cellular stress and increase cellular energy (ATP) leading to improved healing and repair of the skin in a wide range of medical conditions including spots and acne.

    LMS Spotlights start working from the first treatment. They increase the body's natural healing process to clear spots twice as fast. Users of LMS Spotlights find that spots can clear in as little as 24 hours.


    LMS Spotlight:24 is stylishly designed to look like a fabulous compact. Perfect for using at home, it sits neatly on your dressing table and fits easily into your daily skincare routine.
    Price: £54.99 

    LMS Spotlight:8 has been beautifully designed to look like a premium cosmetic. as well as using it at home, it fits easily in your handbag, so you can keep your skin care routine going throughout the day.
    Price: £39.99

    LMS Spotlight:3 has been fabulously designed to look like your favourite lipstick. Just pop it in your handbag or pocket so you have it on hand to act fast at the first sign of a spot.

    Sensitive Skin 2: Bioderma Sensibio H2O


    Follow me:
    YouTube:  http://www.youtube.com/user/tinaHL82?feature=mhee
    Twitter: https://twitter.com/#!/tinaHL82
    Product Reviewed:

    Indications:
    Cleansing and/or make-up removal of the sensitive skins. Also allows to cleanse even the most sensitive eyes.

    Ingredients:
    Aqua, PEG-6 Caprylic / Capric Glycerides, Glycerin, Polysorbate 20, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ammonium Lactate, Plantago Major Leaf Extract, Fructooligosaccharides, Mannitol, Xylitol, Rhamnose, Propylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Cetrimonium Bromide.

    Directions:
    Soak a cottonpad with the solution. Gently cleanse the face and eyes. Repeat until the cottonpad is clean. Dry by swabing gently.


    I would reccommend this for people with all skin types, but especially for those with sensitive skin.  It removes even make up easily and does not leave any residue on the skin, nor does it leave the skin dry or strip the skin of moisture.  After using, I usually find that my skin still feels moisturised.  I does remove heavy makeup - just means more has to be used, however, another type of cleanser is required to remove waterproof makeup.  A little bit goes a long way, so the 500ml bottle would easily last me 4-5 months.
    I'm not sure if there is an official UK site you can buy this cleanser, however, I know it is sold on Amazon and Ebay for around 20GBP......But use caution when buying from these sites!
