SUPER MAGIC BB CREAM BY SHILLS

I finally got a chance to use the Super Magic BB Cream by SHILLS I bought almost a month ago 😀 Oops, has it been that long? Oh well, at least I found an opportunity to use it – considering that I’ve been wearing heavy makeup the whole of last week due to a string of work events, I decided to ‘go light’ during the weekend and let my skin breathe!

So, I went makeup-less on Saturday and then on Sunday, I applied the BB Cream after my normal skincare routine. I must say that it feels like liquid foundation but perhaps I’m not used to the light coverage, I actually applied 2 layers and ended up looking as white as a ghost! But thankfully, the whitish effect gradually faded away minutes later. My only other grouse besides that would be the fact that I was unable to apply powder blusher the normal ‘sweeping’ way that I do – and now that I think back, I should have ‘dot’ on the blusher instead 😦 At least, I can prevent it from looking so patchy! Argghh~


Anyway, the one (& only) thing I like about wearing the BB Cream is that it feels so light that I actually wondered if I did put on any face makeup at all 😛 I would recommend it for those who dislike wearing heavy makeup, but don’t expect anything more from it because if you were to wear it for parties or functions, you may need to use concealer + loose powder on top of it, and it wouldn’t make any sense to not use your liquid foundation or even powder foundation, which would make better choices for better coverage.

Meanwhile, I will be reserving the use of the BB Cream for days when I am feeling too tired to doll up – at least it will bring some radiance & life to my face!

p/s. If you actually noticed… YES! I chopped off my fringe! 😀 Am trying to keep my hair long, so the only change I can have is to play with my front locks! Yay~

Love,

WHY I LOVE SASA

Over the long weekend, I went shopping at SASA 😀 It’s like my most favourite place to shop for beauty and makeup necessities (besides Watsons) because I am always on the lookout for great deals~

I will make it a point to walk into SASA at least once a month and I very seldom walk out empty-handed 😛 At least their prices are affordable, and the beauty advisors will leave you alone to browse – I hate it when people get pesky and try too hard to upsell, or stand around and shadow you for no good reason 😦 Still, it’s part of their job and I know how stressful the management can be about sales targets and ‘units per transaction’; it is the very same reason why I avoid shopping at department stores!

Another good thing about SASA is their every-now-and-then sale 😉 And since there was a 20% sale going on, I bought the Super Magic BB Cream from SHILLS. I’ve never tried BB cream before, so it was a good excuse to buy and try 😀

Also, I love their variety of $1.95 masks – from face masks to eye masks to hand masks to feet masks~ I feel it  makes more sense to try buy 1 mask first and try it out before buying an entire box. Otherwise, you never know if you are allergic to that mask, or if you don’t like the scent, or if it doesn’t do anything for your face 😛
