No more oil!! Yessa!!

For some reason, people loves summer & so do I but when the heat reaches 40 ish Celsius, it definitely made me irritable!! I will bow to anyone who loves the 40 ish Celsius temperature #Salute #bigtime ! 

Skin Type:  Oily-Combination Skin

For the past 3 months (during summer season), I have been loving TWO Matte foundations.  I used to think that Matte foundation is not for me.  For some reason, I have seen few MUA's at MAC Cosmetics who uses matte foundation & I must say it looks horrific!! The foundation sticks on their dry patches & their faces looks flat/dead... errr.. yuck!  On that instant event, standing in front of one of MAC MUA's enough to change my perception on MATTE foundation in general!

But....... I took the courage to try the Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation while I was in LasVegas last November.  The Sephora girl was kind enough to test it on my whole face and let it set.  I was there for half an hour after application just to make sure that it won't set on any dry patches & will not look cakey & flat.  I was impressed!! Aside note, during my vacay in US, I have been wearing Dior Skin Forever Foundation & I do need to blot my face after few hours of application.  It has been a life-time change for me.   I don't have a massive shine on my nose bridge, upper cheek bones, forehead & my chin after changing my foundation :) YEY!! but I do have sheen on my face after many hours of application but not overly OIL Shine, it that makes any sense!

Since I bought the Hourglass foundation & have been using it diligently, I decided to try a relatively affordable foundation which I thought can be used on a daily basis.  The Hourglass Immaculate Foundation has a steep price tag, so, I made my way to Mecca Cosmetica counter in Myer, Adelaide to hunt for Nars Sheer Matte.   

As I approached the counter, the girl suggested to try Nars Sheer Glow on half of my face & the other half with Nars Sheer Matte. I agreed & so it begun!

She reckon that Sheer Matte will look flat whereas the Sheer glow is a semi-matte which will give a sheen but not overly oil production on my face.  After much contemplation,  I came back 3 days later & bought Nars Sheer Glow in Punjab.  I vauched for this foundation too!! 

Nars Sheer Glow in Punjab & Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation have been my faves during summer time Nov 2014- March 2015
