First Look: L’oreal Paris True Match BB Cream.

Hey everyone 🙂

I have always been a girl who loves her eye makeup the most! I have had a very very long affair with eyeliners and still do love them a lot but of late I’m in a major major face makeup mode! Initially I was literally hoarding on powders, now that the powder craze has mellowed down, I’m into TMs/BB creams. I basically want the perfect daily wear light base makeup option!

In my opinion, most of the BB/CC creams that are sold around us are basically just Tinted Moisturizers being called BB/CC to cash in on the hype. I’ve not yet had the chance to try a true Korean BB cream, I really want to try one for the sake of it! But till then, I am trying every other option I can get my hands on!! 😀

The latest one I’ve got is the L’Oreal Paris True Match Skin Idealizing BB cream. Phew! Long name!

I spotted it randomly on Purplle.com and just had to get it immediately 😛

It comes in 3 shades, I chose the shade Neutral but Neutral is nowhere mentioned on the tube or outer carton so I was kindof in a doubt whether it’s what I ordered. The carton mentions “G2 Gold”. At first, I thought I’ll ask Purplle to change it but since this one matches my complexion to the T, I don’t have any problems with it!

It retails for Rs.550 for 30ml.

I have only used this 3 times as of now and will review it for you all properly soon 🙂 It’s a water based light cream. It keeps my face moisturized but doesn’t make it oily.

It gives a fairly natural look which is not too matte nor too dewy. But for my oily face, it does need powder or it would become too shiny.

Its first impression on me is very good! And I’m loving it J more so as it’s a perfect match for my complexion. “True Match” as they call it 😀

Another monthly favourites post!

This month was a very emotional month! My college farewell took place and it was the last month of college, its kindof hard to accept that college is over! Spent four memorable years here and made amazing friends!

Between all this and my final practicals, project presentation and the extreme heat in Delhi, I hardly used makeup this month and had absolutely no time to try new stuff!

My experience:

I’ve been using the Ponds BB cream for about a week now and reviewing it for you all today.

I love my Garnier BB cream and wasn’t expecting much when this ponds BB launched since it’s marketed in their fairness line and I personally do not advocate fairness products. I bought this just to try. I got the small size, 9g. Read on to know how I like it!

My experience:

Okay, one confession – I am obsessed with this BB stick! And I became obsessed with this even before I had it with me. Suddenly, the BB stick was all over the internet since the past few weeks. I bought it last week, as you saw here. There’s a little story behind it. I told my friend I really want it, and told her to buy it for me if she finds it anywhere instantly. She ordered it on medplusbeauty and before it arrived I spotted it in a store and couldn’t resist myself and purchased it and the medplus order just came the next day. So, in short I got two of these 😛 and boy, am I glad? 😀

DSC01188

I’ve been using it for a week now and am here to review it today. You read my review on the Garnier BB cream here and once I finished the small tube I purchased the Maybelline BB cream and just when I was about to review it, this stick came out and as many people were asking to review this, I decided to review the stick first. I will also do a comparison post for you all soon.

Why am I rambling so much today!!! Okay, on with the review!

My February haul.

DSC01113

I have been a good girl these 2 months and limited my expenditure on makeup. Yayy!!! I had not put a ban on myself but rather decided to make wise purchases such that I don’t waste money and only buy stuff that I’ll definitely use! And more or less, I have obeyed this decision well.

Earlier I was literally hoarding the same kindof stuff, read – eyeliners and kajals and felt super guilty – oh! Another new liner!! Now, I am trying new things other than eyeliners and have no guilt whatsoever. I have ventured into blushes just this year and loving them. Also, I am liking face makeup more than eye makeup – I am seriously in love with compacts 😀 I don’t use foundation or primer and recently I am exploring building coverage with powder and loving the results!
