Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all. Sorry I have been so M.I.A recently. I have been on a cruise recently and then on boxing day (26 dec for non-aussies) I went to Japan for New Years. My trip was phenomenal. The people were amazing and any preconceived idea I had was just blown out of the water. I will defiantly be heading back and exploring more of Japan as I only got to see Tokyo and a small mart of Nikko.
Just wanted to make an honorable mention to the beauty products that saved my life in Japan. My Lioele triple the solution, Australis fresh and flawless powder, Benefit mascara and the elf eyebrow kit were a god-sent! These four products were all I used for my everyday looks while traveling and they were amazing. Could stand the harsh (freeeezing) weather conditions I experienced and were just an all round gem for the trip. I recommend these products for easy makeup while traveling :)
Here are some pics from my trip and I look forward to blogging about all things beauty, fashion and food in 2014 :)
I decided I wanted to start writing product reviews, so here is my review on a popular BB cream- Lioele’s Triple the Solution!
Description: UV Protection (SPF 30 pa ++) – Whitening, Wrinkle care, Oil and Acne Control. Triple skin skin solution create a young fresh look and with great flawless coverage. Non greasy, creamy and lightweight, this BB cream will allow your skin to breathe. This foundation substitute will not only provide you with coverage, it will help fade and brighten old acne blemishes with plant extracts such as Tangerine and Strawberry. (from lioele.com.au)
Packaging: The packaging is cute. It’s a cute girly pink and white design and has a great pump. The pump has good control and you are able to pump out as much as you want without accidently pumping out too much product. Because it’s a pump is as hygienic as you can get.
Results/Coverage: This product has medium/heavy coverage depending on how you apply it. Compared to other BB creams I have tried, it would definitely have the best coverage. On days where I don’t want to wear makeup but I just want to even out my skin tone, this is my go to.
When applying it at first it feels quite heavy but in saying that it does spread quite evenly. If you are going for a full coverage look I would suggest using this as your primer. It will even out the skin before putting on foundation (possibly eliminating the need for concealer completely).
Overall it’s a really great BB cream. The best I have tried to date. It gives my skin a nice glow and as someone with oily skin it is definitely wearable without the need to apply powder. Although if you are after a perfect matte look I would suggest using a powder.
