Let's Talk Shoes..

I NEED NEW SHOES!!! BADLY!!!

I really don't have much shoes, for a girl.. I have friends who own more than 50 pairs who don't understand how I can survive with just 3.. LOL. I usually cycle among a pair of flip-flops, a pair of Crocs and my gym shoes. This has been going on for a few months but I just can't be bothered because I was so busy with gym, work and makeup classes. However, recently, as I started going out more and I find myself with nothing appropriate to wear on my feet. 

So, I'm in dire need to revamp my shoe cabinet. Planning to buy a few pairs of essentials to cover all my needs from work to shopping with the girls to a glam night out.

After doing some thinking, I feel that there are 3 types of shoes every woman should own.


1) The Classic Pump
something pointy and sexy like this 

A pair of comfortable, flattering pump (especially in black or nude) is something that can take you from work to 'happy hour' effortlessly. It's professional enough for work and sexy enough to wear for a night out. You can wear it with any outfit!! Plus, the heels will give you some extra height and a sexy strut. Can't go wrong with that!! So yeah.. I want one of those..


2) The Ballet Flat
with trendy metallic colors and cute animal design

On weekends, when you want to go shopping and hang out with the girls, you need a pair of chic ballet flat. Whenever I shop with my girl friends, we take extra long... Hours!! Not intentional, it just happen to be like that so... Ain't nobody gonna be wearing heels! You want to kill yourself? So yeah, ballet flats please.. Ballet flats can be so comfortable and stylish at the same time. From endless designs, materials and patterns to choose from, you will be spoilt with choices. I want me some metallic ones..


3) The Wedge
neutral colors that can match any dresses

For me, a pair of wedges is some kind of a middle ground between the pump and the flat. On a date, where you will be doing some light walking yet still want to look pretty, wedges are the best. They are comfortable to walk in and still look girly and fab. With spring and summer trends here, I'm seeing beautiful floral dresses, stylish tank tops and ripped jean shorts everywhere. I think that a pair of beautiful wedges can definitely be worn with all of those trends. I'm definitely getting a pair!

OK I'm going to hunt for shoes now. It has been long overdue. 

Until the next post, stay happy and healthy!

Love,

INNISFREE AMPOULE INTENSE CUSHION (COVER) FIRST IMPRESSION

Hi! It's me! You still remember me? T_T
I don't blame you if you've forgotten.. *looks at floor*

Anyways......

My skin has turned really dry during the past 2 years. The ridiculous air-con at my work place isn't helping either. I've been working really hard to keep my base makeup on my face. Primers, setting powders and setting sprays help. Most foundations crack or break down after the 6th hour. Cushions performs better, I feel due to the higher moisture level. That is why I've been opting to use cushions rather than foundations nowadays. They are so fast and easy to apply. Perfect for weekdays when I am rushing from gym to work.

Here are the cushions I have, in order of purchase :
1) IOPE XP Cover C21
2) Laneige BB Pore Control Cushion in No.21,
3) Innisfree Long Wear Cushion in No.23
4) HERA UV Mist Cushion in C21

and the latest one,
5) Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion (Cover) No.21

Before I try the Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion (COVER), the one I really like is the IOPE one because besides good coverage, it really gives me moisture and prevent my base from cracking. Dry patches doesn't show that much either. After I finish the IOPE, none of the others really rock my socks. I've been eyeing the Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion but when I read that it doesn't have much coverage, I gave that up.

Recently, I saw PONY's video. She is using the Ampoule Intense Cushion with the word (COVER) behind. My eyes lit up. I scoured the Internet for picture and information so that I can ask my friend to buy it for me from Korea but I can't find any. That's what prompts me to do this post. So that I can help or give information to anyone that is curious about this.

FYI, Innisfree Ampoule Intense Cushion (Cover) is Innisfree's latest Winter 2015 Cushion release. It is a perfected formula (imo) compared to last year's Ampoule Intense Cushion which have a very light coverage. This new one gives you higher coverage and plus the dew lol!

Desciption from Innifree Website :

For reference, my skin is around MAC NC20. It is actually a bit lighter than NC20 but darker than NC15. I bought Innisfree Long Wear Cushion in 23 but I find it a bit dark for my liking so for Ampoule Intense Cushion, I got 21 instead.

A kind friend help me buy this for 20,000 won from Korea. Converted, becomes around RM75 ish. Not bad huh?

The packaging is similar with the Ampoule Intense Cushion but with the word (COVER).
This is how the box looks like

Back of the box

Top left side of the box is written COVER
I bought Color 21

sides

the other side lol

The cushion itself doesn't have the word cover written

I guess it is mentioned at the back of the pact in korean

As usual, there is a mirror and an air puff inside
Inside

and as usual new cushions are covered with a plastic seal

As you can see, the Innisfree Cushions are quite yellow based. I love it because my skin has a lot of red. Yellow helps neutralize it a little.
Pressed my finger in the cushion one time lightly

The coverage is quite good. If my memory serves me right, it is on par with IOPE XP C21 or slightly better coverage than that. I can't compare them side by side because I've finished using the IOPE one.
swatched

After patting down my whole face, my skin looks dewy and perfected. I love it. As you can see, the finish is dewy so those who hates dewy finish please steer clear.
blended out
After 6 hours of wear, skin still looks dewy and nice but my smile lines start to crease a bit because I've been talking and laughing the whole day. So I retouched and it looks fresh again! Some cushions like Hera UV Mist Cushion turn patchy and doesn't retouch well but this one is ok. So far I'm loving it.

I may update this post with more pictures soon. If you have anymore questions, you can comment down below. I think you can get it from Innisfree Malaysia outlet for RM107.59. Link here. Or the refill form for RM67.25. I give you guys the link. They also got the Christmas packaging. Mad cute!!

OK think that's all for now. I missed blogging so much but I don't have as much time on hand nowadays. I will try.

Love you all! Stay awesome!
