I would like to apologize that I have been missing on the blog for a week. It has been a very busy week for me on my work life and my personal life too. By the time I reached home, I’d feel so tired and has no energy even to just browse beauty blog or watch youtube videos. Now that I have my time to blog, I guess I’d write about something that I have been loving a lot lately 🙂
I am sure many of you have heard or used Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Foundation . I bought this foundation last month when I had a short trip to Hongkong. I tried this foundation at Giorgio Armani counter and immediately fell in love with the texture. To read more about the details, please keep reading 🙂
Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Foundation is packed in a matte looking glass bottle with a black cap. The design of the bottle is very simple yet looking sleek. I guess most of Giorgio Armani products possess such image to me; simple yet sleek.
The Texture/Lasting Power
This foundation is targeted to people with dry skin, so the texture is creamy and feels very soft. I like the feeling when I tried it on my hands, it feels smooth and blends very well. The coverage is medium to full coverage. For my whole face, I usually pump once or twice (depending on where I am going on that day). My skin type is normal-combination. My cheek area can sometimes be a little bit dry. So on those days, Designer Lift foundation is my #1 choice. It helps to hydrate my skin throughout the day.
So far this foundation lasts for 10 hours with me without fading. I am very contented with the lasting power of this product because my daily foundation routine does not consist of primer. I hardly use primer unless I know it’s going to be a long day for me. Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Foundation lasts for 10 hours with me even without primer.
As you can see in the swatches below, this foundation blends in beautifully onto my skin. It leaves a dewy finish without making your face looks oily. I am a MAC NC20 and I chose #3; the shade looks closest to my skintone.
I have been using this product for the past 1 month and so far I have been loving it a lot. On the days when my skin feels dry, I can feel that this foundation helps to hydrate my skin and moreover it lasts on my face for 10 hours without fading. Need I say more? I just love it!

I have heard so many rave about the newly launched Chanel CC Cream and I am lucky to get my husband to pick a tube for me from Changi DFS at SGD62. Chanel CC Cream is retailing in department stores at SGD82. This is my first ever tube of CC cream; I have never tried BB cream either. My base makeup is always either my Avene High Protection Sunscreen or Burberry Velvet Foundation.
I have only been using this CC cream for few days but the finished look has been consistent for these few days and I think it’s fine for me to write the review. Chanel CC cream is only available in one shade 20 Beige. I am MAC NC20 shade and this 20 beige shade match my skintone pretty well.
It’s a white plastic squeezable tube with black cap. I think the packaging is rather dull and looks cheap considering this is retailing at $82. It’s very light and handy to be brought on my daily makeup bag.
The texture is quite thick but it blends very well. I blend the CC cream with my hands. The CC Cream has a very nice smell that’s not too strong. It has a sheer coverage and I don’t think this would be good for covering acne scars or spots. This CC cream provides a matte finish without giving an impression that you’re wearing foundation. It’s matte but it does not make your face looks flat.
Chanel CC cream lasts for 8 hours with me and the best thing of this CC cream is that it does not makes my face oily. Usually my face tends to be oily after 4-5 hours of application but it’s not the case with Chanel CC cream. My face still looks the same even after 6 hours without any touch-ups.
Overall Chanel CC Cream has done a very good job to my skin. What I love the most is this product does not make my skin oily after hours of application. I also love the finish look. My skin looks fresh and it does not look like I am using a foundation.

Another thing that I love about this foundation is that it gives full coverage without making you look like wearing a mask. This foundation is also moisturizing as it contains watery sensation.
