Shiseido Integrate Mineral Base Fondation Review


Here in Japan they have from Shiseido a sub-brand called Integrate. When I was looking through their products I came across this base fondation.
I actually thought it was a bronzer... I only realised later on that it was a powder fondation. I've never used any powder fondation nor do I know what the right application is.

I googled this product but I was not able to find any precise information about it.

Product description

As mentioned above it's from Shiseido's subgroup Integrate. Integrate is a mineral based cosmetic brand. This product is apparently oil-free, but it's not written on the packaging. It's a pearl-powder fondation.
The powder comes in a pearl-form and the pearls are in 3 different shade.


Packaging

The packaging seems really compact. The pearls are ordered by color. (I mixed them all together as shown in the picture) It comes with an applicator but it is not inside the packaging. (I guess I've lost it already...). There is no mirror nor anything else that would be worth mentioning.



Rate: 0/5

Personal opinion

This product was a fail purchase!!! If I had realised that it was a powder fondation from the really beginning I wouldn't have purchased it at all. I've never used powder fondation and I'm not really interested in starting to use them. I anyways tried this product out....
This product made me break out terribly!!!! On top of that my skin was getting oily throughout the day.
Also I have troubles in getting the product on a brush. The pearls make it really hard and sometimes they just get stuck on the bristles and suddenly they are all over my room!! I really wish I could say something positive about this product, but it just didn't work out for my skin.


Let me know down below if any of you know about this product and if the same happend to you... If not how do you use this product? Thanks.

Diary of a shopaholic: new Converse


I'm a huuuuuuge sucker for converse!! I probably have over 50 pairs in all different colors and styles. For me the most comfortable shoes to walkin in.



Of course I couldn't ignore such an unique and incredible pair of ankle boots with heels. YES, with heels you read right!! ;)
I had to include them in my collection.
Never have I ever thought that they actually exist, the more you can imagine my excitement when I saw them in Asbee!!


There were 4 different colors available. Navy blue, pink, yellow and beige. I decided for navy blue because it's a color that matches with everything.
I was worried that I would get tired of the other colors.


The heel is not too high. It's feels really comfortable to walk in.



The heel gives them a touch of feminity, but they still remain cool looking shoes by keeping their usual look.
 


Not sure what the exact name of these converse are, but on the packaging they call them "Chucks Sisters All Star Heel Hi".

Talking about the store, I purchased them in Asbee in Aeon, Kita-Toda Saitama, Japan.
I tried to find a website where they sell them online, but couldn't find any.... If you guys know any good links feel free to share them with me. =)

What do you think about these converse? Yes or no?

Style it: Floral Print Lookbook 2014 (+Playlist)



Check out how I style floral prints in my latest video!!! =)

Empties #4

For some reason I really like finishing products!! It gives me a reason to buy new things... xD
I like reviewing my empties especially when I replaced them with a new product and come to realise how they actually worked.


Skin mal gam smoother

Rate: 1/5

Here is another sample packaging of the skin mal gam collective packaging. This product is meant to make the skin smoother.
There was nothing that really impressed me about this product. It didn't seem to have many results on my skin. There was nothing that was bad about it, but I didn't feel that it was improving my skin.
It might be because I only used it for about 2 weeks. It probably takes longer for the product to have effect.




Candy Doll Concealer

Rate 3/5

I'm not a fan of these types of concealer. It's impossible to finish this product properly. For me I like to cut open the packaging to get the rest out, but doesn't work with this packagings. The plastic is too hard for it. There is probably a ton of product in that packaging, but I'm just not able to get it out of there. This packagings make you loose so much product!!!
If it wouldn't be for the packaging I would really love this concealer.




Etude Houe Dual Show Volume Mascara

Rate 4/5

It didn't took long for the lower lash side to dry out. Probably a few weeks after I purchased it. The upper lash side though lasted me for quite some time. It was a great mascara. I could use the upper lash side also for the lower lashes. It gave my lashes a lot of volume. It really belongs to one of my favorite mascaras! -Full Review Here!



Revlon Photoready Concealer

Rate 5/5

One of my favorite concealer. It has a great coverage and the product lasted me for quite some time.
+ Little advise when the stick is finished use a Q-tip to get the rest of the product out. There is actually quite a lot still in there!!




Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

Rate 5/5

This product was amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing!! It's a primer that you use before applying your makeup. A little goes a long way. It lasted me for over 6 months.
My skin remained oil-free throughout the entire day and it didn't make my makeup look cakey.
This product comes really close to Benefits Porefessional. I would even say it's the perfect dupe for it.



Revlon Colorstay Powder

Rate: 5/5

I applied this product after applying fondation and concealer. It kept my makeup in place. My skin remained oil-free and cakey-free throughout the entire day. It didn't make me break-out at all.




Liese Hair Cocktail

Rate: 4/5

This is already my second bottle that I used up. I really like the scent of this product. I usually took a small amount on my hands and massaged it throughout my dry hair or right after showering on towel dry hair, concentrating on the tips.
My hair felt more moisturize using this product, even thought I have to admit that I found products that are better than this one!

Diary of a Shopaholic: Dress from Tokyo

Last year in Japan I purchased a really pretty dress. I really liked the cut, but from the really beginning I was unsecure about the length of it. On my opinion it is way too short. I anyways purchased it and as I feared I never wore it.

What do you guys think? Is that a proper length for a dress? Am I the one exaggerating? I'm aware that I belong to the taller section and for most of the girls this dress would be a little bit longer, but still....


Last Christmas we had a family event and I decided to give this dress a try. I wore this dress with some black tights. While I was getting ready my mom suddenly asked me what I wear underneath it. She didn't get that it was a dress.
After her reaction I knew that It wouldn't be good to wear it. I was about to look for another outfit, when I suddenly thought, instead of wearing tights to try on some leggings.


Muuuuuuch better like this!!! I really like this combination!!

*For those who are curious, my leggings are from Calzedonia. My favorite place to buy leggings.

Do you like the result?? =)
