FOTD: Daily Face + Foundations I use... + Swatches

This is what I usually wear daily now, I don't wear much because I can't be bothered :P But I feel that my skin has gotten so clear and healthy looking now I don't really use too much foundation or too much concealer anymore!

  • Gowoonsesang BB Cream
  • Prescriptives Camouflage Cream - Yellow/Orange Medium 04
  • MAC Loose Powder
  • Stila Convertible Colour - Peony
  • Estee Lauder Pure Pops Cream Shadow - Metal Mania #02
  • Stila Eyeshadow - Wheat - on the eyelid and inner corner
  • Rimmel Eye Kohl - White
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Espresso - brows and to line lower lash line for definition
  • Lancome Virtuose Mascara
  • MAC Lipstick - Snob - I dab a teensy bit of this on my lips for a little colour
  • Stila Lip Glaze - "Ulta" Mate Pink

These are the foundations, well some of them are BB creams and tinted moisturizer, that I use.

Armani Face Fabric - I don't use this anymore because it's obviously too dark for me but this has such a sheer coverage, it's more for people who are already happy with their skin but just need to even it out a little. After all this time, I'm still not sure whether I like the texture of this foundation or not because it actually feels like a primer, like that silicon smooth kinda feel and it weirds me out :P
Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser - I actually like this one, it is very 'glowy' so if you have oily skin I don't really recommend this. Again, very sheer coverage so if you want to cover up stuff I don't think you would like this.
Gowoonsesang BB Cream - My ultimate BB cream! I loveeee the texture and the coverage of this BB cream. The colour, not so much because I find that it has quite a bit of grey cast in it, not as grey as the Skin79 BB cream but still quite grey. I think that the texture is a little bit thicker than the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream which I've been wanting to get my hands on because the colour is more suited to me.
Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream - The texture is similar to the Gowoonsesang BB cream but the colour I find is pretty horrendous, I tried taking a FOTD photo with it on and my face seriously looked grey! Good coverage though!
Etudé BB Cream - This is my only BB cream that's got a yellow based colour but it's so sheer I don't think you would notice if it didn't anyway. I find that it's a bit oily so if you have oily skin, stay clear away from this one, same if you want medium coverage.
Studio Fix Fluid - Oh my HG full coverage foundation! This will make your face look flawless! The texure is pretty thick and for some reason I don't like the scent of it but the scent goes away after a little while anyway! Although I do love the coverage that this foundation gives me, I will not be repurchasing this foundation as I will be trying other foundations that has full coverage (e.g: Estee Lauder Double Wear, etc)

  1. Hi there , can you please tell me where you bought the Gowoonsesang BB Cream . Thanks so much .

  2. Most BB creams have a weird grey cast. I wonder why?

    Ahhh I'm jealous! I wish that my skin is as clear as yours!!!

  3. @ jin: hi hun! i tried to leave you a comment on your blog but i have no idea how to! there's no link thingy! :P i got the gowoonsesang bb cream from sasa.com :D

  4. Thanks for the prompt reply . I want to try it on because you look flawless with it . :D

  5. ah you're so pretty! =3
    & have gorgeous skin!
    i've never tried a bb cream before, might soon.

  6. you have such nice skin you really don't need that much :)! by the way i noticed that all the face fabric shades are sooo dark. #1 was too pink for me and #2 was too dull. #8 was too pale! :( i used to love bb creams but now i feel that they leave a greyish cast on my skin too. i have the gowoonsesang bb cream but its the brightening one.

  7. Your skin looks great, Phoebe!!

    Oh and I just made a purchase over allcosmeticswholesale. You're such an enabler!! Love it! Lol~

  8. hey hun!
    I just nominated you for an award! hopefully you dont already have it.


  9. I love the mac studio fix fluid :) It's like my holy grail but you're right on the medium coverage... I usually have some left on my hand after I do my face so I'll just dab my brush and put it on my left cheek where I have my acne scarring really bad and viola, it's almost perfect skin! haha :D I'm loving the coverage of the studio sculpt. It's similar to this tarte one I tried and they're so thickkkk.. but the tarte one is much easier to blend out ^_^ I'm gonna do a foundation post too! I've been meaning to do one but wasn't sure how to organize it. Now I have kinda an idea :D thankkks <3

    we do no have lanolips here I don't think! It's just some days my lips are horribly chapped and some days it's oaky :) I guess it depends on my water intake :X

  10. you look pretty! and do you have a new profile pic? It's super cute!


  11. you are too pretty for your own good.

    that is all.


  12. Love the natural look dear :)

  13. Your skin is gorgeous! You DEF don't need a lot of coverage at all!

  14. Thank you for the sweet comment Pheobe! I gotta say that I'm a little annoyed we dont have NYX readily available here in Western Canada. So I have to get my fix online. What is your favourite NYX blush? I will look out for it next time I am online shopping.
    OH and btw, your post about "Where i shope for Makeup" made me super happy! I checked out that All Cosmetics Wholesale website and looked at everything at least twice! You are gonna make my wallet empty soon *lol* I ordered some Dior, Mac and Lancome <3

  15. Wow those BB Creams are super grey! I've just started following your blog and I have to say, you're such a doll! So pretty and a great writer as well!

    I gotta say have you tried Revlon Colorstay? Some compare it to Mac Studio Fix and while it's not as high quality and a little more sheer for the price I really love it, and I think they pretty much have a match for any Mac colour.

  16. aw you look totally flawless and GLOWING in these pictures <3

    i've never heard of the Gowoonsesang BB Cream. i'm not sure i can even pronounce it LOL thanks for the comparisons! i have yet to find a BB cream i like so i'm still on the hunt for the perfect one as well :) xx

  17. Ohhh look at you Miss :) You look absolutley FLAWLESS! You don't even need makeup hun, you are so gorgeous naturally!!!!!

    This is such a great review- I am always on the look out to try a new foundation!

    I tired Estee Lauder earlier in the year and while it is quite thick it looks just beautiful on- so flawless! Great for night time wear :)

    Oh no!! I hope you fixed your blogroll thingy!!! And thank you so much for your comment, you are the sweetest!!! :) xx

  18. you are so gorge and your face looks flawless! you can chuck all those foundations and bb creams because you obviously don't need it!

    when I stopped using foundation last year.. all my redness and unevenness went away! I wouldn't use foundation unless there's a very special event :D

  19. you have a really nice skin!

    and you have a nice stash of foundations and bb creams too! ^_^

  20. i cant wait for my skin to be healthirer and my spots to fade so i can also use less

  21. seriously, do you keep a healthy diet to make your skin so pretty or do you just have naturally perfect skin?? it's truly marvelous. heehe

    anyway! have you ever tried makeup forever's hd invisible cover foundation? that's what i'm currently using, and i love it. so i just wanna know what you think of it... try it if you haven't! :)

  22. your skin is so flawless..I don't own any of the BB cream but now it makes me wanna give it a try hahaha

  23. Your skin is so nice! I wonder why you even need BB cream at all!

  24. I thought I was following you this whole time!!! Turns out I wasn't!!! :O
    No wonder I'm seeing all these new posts, I don't get updates from your blog!
    Anyway, thanks for recommending cetaphil! I didn't even know they had moisturizers...
    Any idea to why your skin's so good these days? Tips please :D

  25. Your skin looks so flawless here! I ordered Skin79 BB Cream on Ebay last weekend, I can't wait to get my hands on it and review it.

    I followed your blog! Hello from Finland :)

  26. I have tried the Stilla Illuminating TM and MAC Studio Fix, love them both! xoxo

  27. Very pretty! I have been thinking of getting a BB Cream for a while now. The only BB Cream I have tried is from Missha and it's reallly bad. It makes my skin oily. That has really put me off BB cream for a while. But I think I will look around for one again.


    I'm so jealous.
    Give it to me!!!!!!!

    I'll let you borrow my sparkly shoes. :)
