Suqqu Frame Fix Foundation Lightness SPF 30

In UK, I think Suqqu is most known for their cheek brush because it’s almost a staple in Lisa Eldridge videos! Closely behind are their Liquid Eyebrow pen and their moss green eyebrow powder. But no one really talks about their other makeup items nor their skincare… Recently I was in the market for a new foundation and feeling spendy, so I popped into Selfridges to try their Frame Fix Foundation Lightness SPF 30, and it’s a whopping £58! (eeek..!)
I was interested in this foundation because I saw a Hong Kong beauty blogger Hakme mentioned it in her Japanese Haul. The colour range of Japanese foundation should suit my Chinese skin quite well. I was also attracted by its highly moisturizing formula and built-in SPF.  I was matched up with Shade 003, which I thought is a perfect match to my skin tone.
I would say it is a light foundation with medium coverage. Give the bottle a good shake before use. One gentle pump (don’t need to press all the way down to a full pump) has enough coverage for my whole face. The texture might not seem as light when you first pump the product out, but it can be sheered out very thinly yet there is still enough pigment to get some decent coverage.

I feel that my face looks flawless yet natural. I don’t feel the need to use concealer. It has a brightening and luminous finish. It is not glowy or dewy, it is not matte neither. It makes my skin looks naturally flawless and healthy.
At the counter, the sales lady applied it with her fingers, which I followed the same at home. Then I tried with brushes, and I found that Bobbi Brown’s Full Coverage Face brush gives almost the same flawless finish as applied with fingers. 

I will set this foundation with a powder – and I think the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder is the perfect to this foundation as it adds some subtle luminosity to the skin.

The lasting power is not bad too. I put my make up on normally at 7.30am, when I finish work at 6pm, most of the foundation is still visible on my face. If I were to go out after work, I would probably use half a pump to top up and freshen up my look.

£58 for a foundation is no doubt a lot of money. However, I do think it is worth the price tag. I cannot put this foundation down since I bought it, and I really look forward to use this foundation every morning.

Budget Buy: MUA nail polish in Natural Days

When I was in Superdrug to buy the Tiffany colours (NYC nail polishes  - check out my blog post here ), as the offer was 3 for 2 across all nail polishes, I picked up a MUA polish as my freebie. I saw this pastel baby pink colour in Natural Days. The colour looks really cute in the bottle.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
