Makeup: Review Clinique Anti-blemish – Liquid Makeup 2

20 Sep

Hello dear readers,

Again, sorry for the hiatus!

I haven’t forgotten about this review as I have been testing it for a while now! I have to give it the thumbs up.

I have been testing Clinique Anti-Blemish – Liquid Makeup for approximately 10 days now and I’m using it almost every single day.

I apply foundation with my fingers, as I think I have mentioned before, I like to feel how my skin is but also because I never got a brush when started using makeup. I only use a brush to apply Bronzer on my cheeks. Anyway, the coverage for Clinique Anti-Blemish is good and makes my skin feel even and uniform. Of course if you have a zit that left a bump it will cover it but it will still be noticeable. If you have that problem :( you might want to try and apply concealer first for extra coverage.
The makeup is not greasy and blends with my skin tone perfectly!!It leaves a nice matte tone on my skin after applying. It really does what it says on the package. I’m a fan.
It feels like it controls the oiliness of my skin and balances its appearance.

Previously I have been using the Revlon PhotoReady Foundation which works perfectly fine if you have normal skin like I had last year.

Have you ever tried Clinique Anti-blemish – Liquid Makeup? What are your thoughts on it?
Any questions? Comments?

P.S This is not a sponsored post. I have bought Clinique Anti-blemish – Liquid Makeup with my own money as I needed a makeup to control my combination skin. Since I had never tried this product before I decided to test it out for the blog!

Fashion Talk! Get your GAME outfit on!

15 Sep

Hello dear readers,

I was contacted by Fanatics, the leading online retailer for everything sports, specializing in apparel for all of your favorite teams, to do a Game day outfit with one of their baseball hats!
I was very excited as I’ve never done a Polyvore board on that theme and I’m sure you all would like a peek at what I put together!!!

The challenge had only to include one of their baseball hats from the MLB Hats Fanatics page and I could put in my own style and sense of fashion for Game Day!!

I decided to go a bit glam and make it like I was going to a Special Event!!!

I picked the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim hat because it was red and I like the logo. It was easy to match with red/gold pieces as well.

What do you think?

Makeup: Review Clinique Anti-blemish – Liquid Makeup

9 Sep

Hello dear readers,

I’m back!!!! Yeah!!!
Yesterday I went shopping as I needed a new foundation. My old one from Revlon finished and I had no substitute yet!!! If you follow the link you can find my review on that. My skin needed something new as well as the weather in Portugal is very different from the UK and it’s changing my skin back to it’s oily prone habits. Nothing major but its better safe then sorry! So I was very curious to try the Clinique anti-blemish solutions. My skin tone is quite fair so I got the lighter one they got in 02 Fresh Ivory for type 2,3 4 (Dry combination to oily skin). Cause my skin is dry in some spots as well.

I only got this yesterday but I’m going to be testing it out during the week and I’ll keep you all posted. So far It seems to cover my blemishes and dark spots and leaving a smooth surface! I’ll let you know the results in the long run!

Hello dear readers,

It has been a long hiatus from the blog as I’m finishing writing up my PhD. I am glad to announce it won’t be long now and when I’m done I’ll have some free time to blog and travel. This summer has been all work and no fun. I haven’t even been to be beach!! And I live close by… bummer!

Style Icon: Lauren Bacall

13 Aug

Hello dear readers,

I’d like to pay my homage to Lauren Bacall who passed away yesterday at 89. Lauren Bacall is a very well known film and stage American actress and model. She was well known for her husky voice and sultry looks. She was the leading lady next to Humphrey Bogart, her late husband.
She was a big fan of scarves wore them a lot combined with pants and sweaters. She never showed too much cleavage and opted for tailored suits and crisp white shirts with vivid scarves. Again, she dressed like a woman who could seduce a man during a game of pool or skip over a puddle without breaking an ankle.
Her hair was iconic by itself.Who doesn’t remember her distinctive locks? She had a shoulder-grazing bob. She was also known for wearing minimal makeup!
She is known for saying “Generally women are better than men. They have more character. I prefer men for some things, obviously, but women have a greater sense of honor and are more willing to take a chance with their lives.”

Fashion Crush! New Zilian shoes!

31 Jul

Hello dear readers,

Yesterday I went to Lisbon for a meeting! My husband took me as he also needed to leave the house for a while! We went to El Corte Inglés for some groceries ( they have really nice cheese and food there) and we found a Zilian store.
This is my favorite Portuguese shoe brand! I had been to their store in Chiado and this one is even bigger and I got my summer sandals at last and the black medium heel shoes I had been needing for some while now!!!

Zilian shoes

They are soo cute!!! I love my black shoes and my new cute cat sandals!!! Adorable really!

My cat loved the bag and found a way inside. She was playing with it all night yesterday!!!
