L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation | The Review

DSC01328

Whenever I need to review a new base product, I always test them out a few weeks in advance to thoroughly review the  product. With the L’Oreal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation, right of the bat, I already knew that this product was an anti-aging product, which was a first for me, in terms of foundations.

It owns up to their claim that it erases fine lines, wrinkles and smoothens skin because upon application it almost felt like I was putting on a mattifying primer. It really looked like it smoothened my skin! Amazing!

But what I don’t get is the “Visible Lift” aspect. Maybe in the long run, if I use this product for the next 3 years, I might be able to see the ‘lift’ they were talking about. But I noticed no instant lift results on application.

Maybe it was the shade that I got, but I noticed that when I tried to apply this to cover my under eyes, all it did was emphasize it. Although I think it was because the shade I got had a blue undertone.

But in terms of consistency, this foundation easily blends on skin even if it isn’t the perfect match.

So should you get this foundation? Since this base is a bit on the pricey side of drugstore bases($14.99), maybe you should just grab the L’Oreal True Match Foundation.

How To Stay Healthy If You Don’t Have Time For The Gym

DSC01936

If you are a working gal like me, your only chance to work out is waking up at the crack of dawn or running to the gym straight out of work, but when six o’ clock strikes motivation is nowhere to be found! So how can a career girl/boy like yourself stay healthy?


Watch TV and…

Got a few TV series you need to catch up on? I know I do! One of my lazy, but super effective tricks to hitting two bird with one stone is exercising while watching TV. Whether you are doing some squats, leg lifts or cycling, just keep moving!

Workout From Home

Exercising at home works for a lot of people especially when they aren’t so comfortable with exercising in public yet. Trade in a Netflix show for a 30 minutes workout show or Try using the NikeFit app!

Commute To Work

If you live a few blocks away from your work, you might be better off walking the extra mile than taking the bus or the train there. Burn whatever calories you can before you are stuck sitting at your desk!

Make Working Out A Thing

Working out can easily become a time for you to catch up with your friends instead of catching up over a bottle of wine. Take a walk outside with the girls. Nature can do wonders for your quality of life!

Take The Stairs

I am SO guilty of this. I always prefer taking the lift or the escalator. Take the stairs or maybe even run up them. You can even skip some steps to add some extra workout points! You will be burning calories and toning your legs at the same time.

Sephora & US Drugstore Haul!

DSC01498

Hi there! I know hauls might seem a bit of a shallow topic to talk about sometimes. But whenever I get a bunch of new makeup, I usually give a TON away as well because TBH I don’t need as much anyway. I only have one face and apply makeup once a day(usually). But nevertheless, I still want to share with you all the bits that I got for Colourpop, CVS and Sephora. Hope you enjoy it!


I won’t be talking much about the bits I picked up from Colourpop because I made a separate blog post about it previously, so if you would like to see it, link here!!

Moving on…

When it cam to Sephora, I had a few purchases in mind. I wanted something new to review, something I hadn’t heard about before. I got the Dr. Jart+ Beauty Balm in Light-Medium. I have to say, I am quite excited to give this a review on the blog(who is with me?) The Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Lovely was also must to get or any other amazing shade from that line.

I needed to restock on my Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer in 230 Fair because I use that tube of magic literally everyday. So much love for drugstore brands that have your exact skin tone for such a good price. I just had to get the L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation in 201 Light because the curious I am just had to. 

Powders are a huge necessity in my life. I use them everyday. So the geek that I am, I go through a bunch of compacts a year(about 3-4 a year). Imagine buying four high end powders a year?!?! Where the heck am I going to get all that money? That’s why I got the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Powder in 110 Porcelain and the Physician Formula Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Powder in Creamy Natural.

Another product that I use on the daily is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

And of course, I had to get something skin care related! But this time its a repurchase, the First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser has got to be my fave cleanser. It never broke my skin out or irritated it.
