Foundation oxidise

This is my common lament… Why oh why does high end liquid foundation oxidise on my skin? Actually, I’m not complaining very much because this means I don’t use high end foundation thereby saving a bunch of money! :) But its got me curious nonetheless.

What does it mean by foundation that oxidises on skin?

Foundation that oxidises on your skin is foundation that turns one shade darker or turns orange after application on your skin. Sometimes, the colour is a perfect match when applied but after being exposed to your skin and to the air, it turns a shade darker or it turns orange i.e. not a perfect match any longer.

Why does foundation oxidise?

There is no one answer to this. What causes foundation to oxidise might be a combination of various factors including PH of skin (how acid it is), humidity, skin temperature and oiliness of the skin. It could be one or it could be all.

We love the Sonia Kashuk Powder Brush, yes we do! 😀 That about sums up how I feel about the powder brush in a nutshell. Now, onto slightly more detailed thoughts.

Sonia Kashuk Powder brush

The Sonia Kashuk Powder Brush is available at Target stores or and only available in the USA. Mine came courtesy of a good gal pal to whom I am eternally grateful for getting these for me.

I love how the handle of the brush is curved. It allows it to fit nicely in your palm although I’d have preferred if it was slightly thicker so it fits better. The brush head is full and oh! so soft! I cannot quite describe how soft it is, but if you can imagine airy cotton wool on a brush, this is it.

Every girl needs a string of pearls. Actually, every girl needs a diamond or two, but who’s counting eh? 😉 Well, I like pearls. A long string of pearls or a pearl choker lends an air of elegance unrivalled by any other bling. Somehow, to me it screams “I don’t need bling to look glamorous!” and with pearls on, you don’t.

Pearl necklace

A nice string of pearls can be very pricey though so most times, I’m just looking and gawking at places like Mikimoto, but never daring to touch. However, one day, while my mom and I were doing a spot of shopping, we came across a Shinju Pearls counter at Isetan (The Gardens) where we saw a long string of pearls that caught our eye. It was exactly what we were looking for, and imagine our surprise when we saw that it only cost RM99 for the long strand.

Since we aren’t the sort with bottomless wallets, we thought RM99 for a long string of freshwater pearls that can be worn in any number of ways, was a great deal. We experimented with wearing it as a double strand, triple strand, knotted, tied with ribbon and worn as a choker … the possibilities were endless and limited only by your imagination! Ok, so you don’t wrap it around your wrist like it did, but yes, that’s all one strand of pearls :)
