I did not think much of the Maybelline mineral foundation, primarily because I found them a little too yellow. It was hard to find a color match. So when I recently saw the Maybelline Clear Luminous mineral blushes at Watson’s I wasn’t overly enthused. I don’t work well with mineral blushes because I always find myself using too much.
I thought it was strange that they placed the product low on the counter – it was by my knees and heaven knows, my knees don’t need blush! I did swatch the 4 colors available and was rather surprised that they were quite sheer. Mineral blushes from my experience tend to be very pigmented but I suppose these have been mixed with other ingredients.
The 4 colours available are C01- Gentle Pink, N00 Soft Mauve, W01- True Peach and N01- Original Rose. I was most taken in by Soft Mauve. It was light and looked like it would be buildable and natural. The other 3 colours were a little stronger. There was some shimmer. A tub retails for RM35.90 which is pretty decent.
While I was at Watson’s picking out ahem… monthly necessities… I came across this – Instead Softcup.
I’d read about it in the papers before. An alternative to pads and tampons for monthly periods. The cup in question is a non latex cup that you insert like a tampon to collect the menstrual discharge.
I would have tried it but for 1 setback. Each cup is to be used only once. So, despite what I originally thought, these are not like the mooncup which is a reusable alternative to tampons. At RM19.90 for a pack of 5, I felt it was too expensive (and potentially queasy) experiment to undertake
Have you tried either of the 2 products above? Do share your experiences with them especially the latter!
And yay! We made it to Friday and the weekend A week has never felt so long… and I’m looking forward to the weekend.
