REVIEWS:// smashbox sheer focus tinted moisturizer + Chanel Rouge Coco HYDRATING CRÈME LIP COLOUR

Blogging in the wee hours again...I always do this haha
I've finally uploaded the pics so I can do some proper reviews!

First up is Smashbox's Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer

Taken from the SEPHORA website:

What it is:
A vitamin-packed moisturizer with a hint of color.

What it does:
Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer is a lightweight, revolutionary sheer color formula for naturally radiant skin. A healthy complexion starts with unique citrus honey ingredients for long-lasting hydration and oil absorption, with UVA/UVB SPF 15 added to guard against future sun damage. Vitamins C and E offer protection against free radicals and antiaging peptides improve elasticity. Skin stays flawless and protected with a smooth, matte finish all day long.

What else you need to know:
The moisturizer does not contain oil, paraben, or fragrance.

Pretty self explanatory. Now if I hadn't tried this at a friend's house before I bought it I never would've taken the plunge since it seems a little steep for a tinted moisturizer.

My skin is dry and tends to get oily if I don't set my makeup properly etc etc

As you can see, I bought the lightest shade because it's what seemed most suited to my face.
My friend has a shade darker so it looked like I had tanned...only my face ffffffff

Swatch on my hand!

Before application: Some red spots and dullness

[no photoshop. happy dayyy]

And after! And set with MAC powder that I've reviewed before in my other entry.

I've been using smashbox for a few weeks now and I love it. 
I feel that it really keeps my skin supple and bouncy and I don't need much coverage. 
I think it's also been improving my skin because instead of heavy concealer/foundation I just slap this on and some setting powder and I'm ready to go. If I need extra coverage I just put more layers of it on.

I wouldn't recommend this for people with very obvious discoloration/difference in skin texture like acne etc
I feel that it wouldn't cover much but I like it a lot.
 I'll repurchase unless I can find something better.
But I doubt it since I'm loving what it's doing for my skin.



My first expensive lipstick! How excitinfg!
One of my dear friends perlevoire has a discount at the store she works at so I grabbed one of these!

Description from the website:
A modern interpretation of classic creme lip colour as an homage to the rich life and legacy of 'Coco' Chanel. Lightweight lip colour glides on for easy application, and features a Hydratendre complex to help soften, soothe and condition lips - even boosting their ability to hold in moisture - for a plumper, smoother and healthier-looking appearance. A range of wearable shades with full-coverage finishes, from matte to pearl to soft shimmer.

The shade I grabbed was Rose Dentelle
I looove it. It's my lips but better shade and it goes with any outfit any occasion
I can't say it's too hydrating because my REVLON lip butters are way better.
This one flakes on my lips but if I layer it with a clear gloss I'm content
I also think that it lasts quite a while for me so I'm happy!

I'm really wanting to try some YSL next but I'm running out of shades to buy zzz


I also have some outfit snaps of a new hairstyle I tried.
Take a high ponytail and amp it up by curling the ends.
Super cute and the high ponytail gives your hair some volume up at top~

OOTD for that day

I also got a new phoooone but more on that next time!

Night night!
