Thinking of buying the MUFE HD foundation...

...and this video just about convinced me to do so. Watch!!

She did use 4 pumps of foundation to get that much coverage, but if all that stuff didn't crease at all, then that just makes the HD foundation all the more amazing!

Swatches: Sleek Makeup Blush in Rose Gold and Pomegranate

So after my review, here are some swatches... Sorry this took longer than expected, I was having some trouble photographing them due to lighting problems (as usual).

Anyway, here are the photos!

On the left: Rose Gold blended and swatched on; On the right: Pomegranate swatched on and blended

In natural light

Natural light (at an angle) - can you see the effect of Rose Gold blended on skin? My arm is already smooth, so imagine what the gold flecks would do on a face with visible pores. Not a pretty sight.

Natural light + flash

So as mentioned in the review, Rose Gold is not sheer, yet it looks very natural on my medium-tan skintone, with rather visible gold flecks. While Pomegranate is more of a plum/purple pink with light pink shimmer that is more fine than Rose Gold.

Olay Natural White: Healthy Fairness Day Cream

Being a beauty junkie in the Philippines, I think it's safe to say that it is almost impossible to ignore products that can whiten skin. Almost everything available here that you can apply to the skin has some form of whitening ingredient in them - from soaps, to creams, and even to powder foundation! Blame it on the beauty industry and mainstream media that imposes this "rosy white" beauty ideal to people who just aren't naturally so. There has been backlash to this of course, coming from people who insist that the Filipina's "golden tan" is much better than lightening skin into an unnatural shade.

On my end however, I have nothing against whitening products because the demand for this has brought about a wide array of cheap, yet effective creams that can fade marks that keep your skin from being clear and blemish free. Regardless of what side you are leaning to in the skin whitening debate, I think we all can agree that pockmarked skin is unattractive, right? :)

I got this Olay cream because I needed a new daily moisturizer that was cheap and had an acceptable amount of SPF. At first I was hesitant to get it because I was afraid that my face might end up getting lighter than the rest of my body if I used this...but then I figured that I can just stop using it if I get too light.
