Review of MAC Mineralize Foundation with SPF 15

There are times when I get a product and I review it within a week and then there are products whose reviews take longer and I finally belt them out after about a month or so. But there are also products that I finally get down to reviewing after more than a year and the MAC Mineralize Foundation SPF 15 is one such example. Honestly? I cannot think of any other product that I took so long to review :) This sure has to be special ^_^
I am on my second tub and I am still a die hard fan of the foundation :) I initially bought this all thanks to my mom for whom we were looking for a foundation that would hide/conceal her age spots. We visited MAC at Palladium, Mumbai and the moment the SA applied it on my mom, we both fell for it hook, line and sinker :P We brought the awesome albeit expensive baby home and just kept ooohhing and aahhhhing for the days that followed. So much so that the moment I came back to Pune, I went and got myself one as well ;)  

Review of MAC Mineralize Foundation SPF 15

Now MAC Mineralize Foundation as the name suggests is a mineral foundation that after application, warms up a little and becomes a tad bit darker. Hence, it's always better to apply it at the store and then let it settle to see which shade matches you perfectly. I suit NC35 in it. The foundation is in the form of a cream compact and provides medium coverage but is easily buildable. It's perfect for those with dry to normal skin. If you have extremely dry skin, you might end up with slight dry patches by the end of the day.

Review of MAC Mineralize Foundation SPF 15

The foundation stays on all day long even in Bombay's humidity and that's a biggie! It sets into a matte kind of a finish. So if you are looking for a dewy look,  I would suggest you to apply a primer underneath with a "dewy" finish. The foundation comes in a compact type of a container and has a foundation sponge provided with. The container also has a mirror thus making the product extremely travel friendly.

MAC Mineralize foundation has SPF 15 and hence gives a slight whitish cast when photographed with flash. However, it isn't that and it doesn't make you look like a ghost like many other products with SPF do.

Price of MAC Mineralize Cream Foundation SPF 15

It costs a whopping INR 2250/-

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal

Good Health: My Slimming Diet and Exercise Regimen

I was planning on starting this post with a quote on health and all that jazz but then I realized you are here reading this post not cause you want to see my writing style but are here cause you actually want to read the contents :) So I will start without much intro but a little disclaimer before that ;) Disclaimer I am not a doctor or a nutritionist or even a dietitian. I have found out from experience what works for me and I am sharing it with you guys. You are to find out what is right for you and make your own permutations and combination to this regimen of mine depending on your target weight, your lifestyle and all :) Before I start there are a couple of points we need to keep in mind: 1. In order to lose weight one needs to burn more calories than you take in. 2. The human body takes about only 1200 calories to do the routine functions of respiration, digestion etc. 3. Just because you are not taking 3 full meals a day does not mean that you are starving yourself or ar

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
