Since the time I tried using Dermablend flawless creator™ foundation drops early this year, reviewed here, it has really changed the meaning of how the professional makeup should be, I still use it in rotation. I have another makeup base from Dermablend I have been using since last few weeks and finally sharing with you guys in this post. Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation and Loose Setting Powder Original are new additions to my stash of makeup which I have been using quite a lot these days.
Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation is a lightweight, buildable, hydrating foundation which is not overly hydrating but good enough for my combination skin to look radiant while providing a nice medium to full buildable coverage. The staying time of impressive on my skin, I tested for over 12 hours, it stays put and does provide coverage even at the end of the day with a little touch up with setting powder around the end of the day. It provides all-day hydration and broad-spectrum SPF 25 for skin protection. For my combination skin prone to acne, I have few spots from breakouts here and there at any time of the year, so I am open to using full coverage foundation and it means I do not have to use concealer on the spots and pigmentation. The creamy texture blends nicely into the skin without looking cakey. I like how it makes the skin look beautiful, radiant, and healthy looking. I mix a little of 45w into 35w to make the right shade for my skin tone.
Dermablend Loose Setting Powder Original is a sheer smooth translucent powder to set makeup, it ensures smudge and transfer resistance and also enhances makeup wear for up to 16 hours. It blends smoothly to mattify the complexion and leave skin looking flawless. I prefer to use it on the oily areas of my face, like the centre of the face. The good thing is the staying power is pretty amazing, it keeps my oily areas matte for a good amount of time comparing to other loose powders I have used. I apply the powder on the areas of the face I want to mattify, leave it on for 2 minutes before brushing off the excess powder.
Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation and Loose Setting Powder Original are nice additions to my makeup and will be great for you if you are looking for a hydrating medium-full coverage foundation that looks natural and radiant while the powder works nicely to keep the skin matte. Dermablend products are available at Dermablend.ca and BeautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart.*Press samples

If you follow me on Instagram, you might know how much I like the new Shiseido makeup, the products are so beautiful, the formulas glide on the skin like second-skin and the performance is great. I reviewed most of the products from the newly launched Shiseido Makeup range here in the past. I am sharing two products – one is new to me and the other is new shades of a favourite – in this post.
Shiseido Kajal InkArtist is one of the creamiest and beautiful product with enough pigment that builds on quickly to give as much intensity and boldness you want or a single swipe is perfect for everyday use. The staying power is amazing. I have been using the shades 04 Azuki Red and 05 Plum Blossom since January this year and they are like my reintroduction to colour on eyes, which in the past I did not like to experience much. They work great as an eye shadow, eyeliner, and even on the brows. The formula is very lightweight and the finish is matte. The tip of the liner with a sponge on the other side is perfect to apply and smudge.
I have two new shades on rotation – 06 Birodo Green and 09 Nippon Noir, swatches are below. This is definitely a keeper and I do look forward to using more color on my eyes.
Shiseido MicroLiner Ink is a micro-fine eyeliner with high impact pigments glides across lids with the utmost precision to deliver a weightless, smudge-proof matte inky line. The weightless, inky pencil features thermo-sensory technology that allows this formula to transform from a solid to a liquid upon contact with skin, creating a flexible, water-resistant film that lasts for over 12 hours that I have tested. The micro-thin lead can also be dotted between lashes or glided across eyes with remarkable precision and no skipping. It is available in five shades inspired by Sumi ink sticks used in traditional Japanese calligraphy and I have swatched two shades for you guys which I have been using on rotation – 01 Black and 02 Brown – both are perfect for my everyday look.
This new makeup launches are definitely , I will keep the products in the rotation since I am really enjoying them in my everyday routine. Shiseido Makeup Collection is available Sephora Canada, Hudson’s Bay, Murale, Beautyboutique by Shoppers Drug Mart.*Press samples
