Beauty Review: STYLE 71 Shiny Air Cushion Foundation

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

I've been spending so much on online shopping that I dread looking at my credit card bill when the statement comes every beginning of the month. Y'know, it feels like the monthly cycle that women always experience. Hahahaha.

Anyway I've been eye-ing on this new cushion foundation - Style 71 Shiny Air Cushion Foundation that provides sun protection of SPF 50+; so basically it's 2-in-1: Foundation + Sunscreen!

Apparently they are also the makers of IOPE, the infamous cushion that's rock the cushion world.

In my opinion, the worst performing cushion has gotta be Laneige! It can barely last up to 4 hours on my combination skin, and at the end of the day I look like a total mess; as if someone's smeared flour all over it. Blah. Moonshot is a tad too moisturising for me - but perfect for dry weather. I applied it everyday when I was in China (including hiking in the snow hahaha) and coverage was pretty good. #dontjudge

Why cushion foundation?

Probably the most convenient make-up invented till date! I usually have 30 minutes to spare after bathing in the morning, and my whole entire makeup routine takes up too much time. By the time I start applying my compact powder to mattify the face, I'd be super late for work.

Thus - Cushion is my ultimate saviour!

These days I can just keep snoozing (lol) and wake up late, knowing that the time taken to do my makeup has drastically reduced by 15 minutes :P

Back to Style 71 - they offer two types:

1) Full Cover Luxury Cushion
2) Mist Cover Luxury Cushion

After reading the reviews, I finally decided on Mist Cover Luxury Cushion mainly because of my combination skin. My cheeks and sides of the nose are really sensitive and dry whereas my T-zone can get oily as well.

Here's the comparison:

What really attracted me was their packaging.

I have a thing for bling bling, and they're really gorgeous!!

Gorgeous designs (Style 71 Shiny Air Cushion Foundation)

Now I have the chio-est cushion cover in the girls' toilet! *flips hair*

Anyway, I placed my order for the teal cover with pink sakura flowers :)

And it finally arrived in the mailbox just last night!!! Super happy when I opened the parcel. So gorgeous and I couldn't wait to try out!

Gorgeous packaging. And it has a very premium feel to it.  

I guaranteed you - it's even prettier in real life. 

 I was quite shocked when I first pressed into the cushion, because quite a fair bit came out!

The shade I got in was #23, because I (think) I'm pretty tan and I hate it when after applying makeup, my face is fairer than my body -_-

One thing though - the puff that came with it was a little stiff, which I didn't quite like. Think it'd be best to get your own puff and apply it. I love how smooth and hydrating the cushion foundation was! (yet not greasy at the same time)

The coverage was mad good, like really really good. 
I had a pimple mark just right below my chin, and it managed to conceal it flawlessly. Impressive.

Usually after applying cushion foundation, I'd top it off with powder to mattify my face - and in this case, I used Innisfree Compact Powder

At 9am: In the office. My cheek has some freckles + scars from my previous pimple outbreak, but the cushion has managed to cover them effortlessly. (Btw, I really love the Etude House blusher! Super kawaii)

At 9pm: After gym and a whole day at work. The coverage has slightly faded, but nevertheless still good. 

My T-zone still get a little oily, but only probably after 6 hours I'd say?

Though nothing can win my Smashbox foundation, I gotta say that this is a pretty impressive product.

And with that price tag?
Take my money! 

In conclusion, here's my rating:

Coverage: 8/10
Lasting Powder: 7/10
Value: 9/10
Gorgeousness: 10000000 (LOL)

Shopee Hauls: Best Finds under $10!

Friday, August 05, 2016

Been the most stressful week ever at work. :( Thus I've been de-stressing myself with Shopee!

If you don't already know, Shopee is the up and coming Qoo10! Been shopping on it every single day because their time sale are crazy. Crazy like $1.50 for CABLES with no additional charge with free shipping! 

Recently, I managed to grab Kose Sekkisei's Clear Whitening Mask at only $9.90 during one of their timesale events! (Was $12.90, but I had a $3 discount code too!)

One of the best-selling product among their range, this mask helps to get rid of blackheads, white heads and impurities in your skin! I used to do 3-4 times a week, but lately have been busy so my skin is kind of INFESTED with whiteheads. :( 

I used to use Daiso's charcoal mask, but I reckon their formulation has changed because it is so watery now and doesn't stick well! 
Have been wanting to try Kose's and when I saw it on timesale on Shopee, I knew I had to get it!

Goodbye to whiteheads! 

Taken after gym sesh and cleansing my face. It's pretty gooey like glue, and dries up on your face after 15-20 mins and that's when you can peel it off! So shiok to see all that gunky stuffs on the sheet. Lol.. Might be my holygrail mask afterall. :) It is rather cooling on the face as well! And my pores are visibly smaller & cleaner after doing the mask.

Here are some other products that I've gotten at real GOOD prices from Shopee as well!
Best finds under $10

Spaghetti Knit Top at only $3!! And the material is damn awesome as well. 
Omg this is CHEAPER than bugis street. Hahaha. #budgetbarbie

My favourite eyebrow pencil - Etude House Drawing Eyebrow at only $2.90. And yes, free shipping. 
I won't doubt the authenticity, because it works as well as those that are bought instore.

Omg my favourite purchase. Hello kitty toilet paper! Pangsai also happy with these cute Hello Kitty Prints. 

Hello Kitty Wireless Mouse. I got the one in pink, and it's really gorgeous in real life. Comes with warranty as well. Guess how much? $4.90. Free Shipping.

SK-II Signs Eye Mask. $1.90. Nothing to say.

Being the budget barbie, I love trial samples~ And 4 sachets of this Buckwheat Green Tea & Coffee was only $0.10. Free shipping. Mmhmm, I know right. 

I remember buying it from my favourite Japanese mart at Suntec at a promotional price of 2 for $12. 
Over here at Shopee, they ran a timesale and I managed to grab this at $3.99! Almost half the price of the so-called promotional price. -_-
And I ate them all within 1 day. 

Any 4 for only $3, and that works out to be only $0.75/pc! 
As compared to their stores which are selling at $2/pc. 

My favourite online store now, without a doubt.

Shopee, thank you for letting me try so many products at such affordable prices. Yay~

Check out their daily timesales here!
