Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream

   Everybody was talking about BB Creams and how amazing they are. It's like the new big thing in cosmetics. I decided that I had to get it to see if it's worth the hype or not. I went ahead and swapped for Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in #31 off of Makeupalley two weeks ago. I chose #31 since it's a new shade and has stong yellow undertones and suites MAC NC35-NC40 skintones. I had two full weeks to try it. I must say that I'm over the moon impressed with it. I've never seen or tried anything like it before. to begin with, I hardly use any liquid foundation due to their heaviness on the face. Surprisingly, this feels like a tinted moisturizer but has the coverage of a liquid or cream medium to full coverage. You can also layer it either if you want it to be medium coverage or full coverage. It's not cakey whatsoever and no matter how much you put on it still looks natural and flawless. I've heard that many BB Creams oxidize in around 20 minutes but I didn't see that coming with the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream which is great. The packaging is very hygienic (the biggest size does). When I apply it I don't even need to use a full pump because a little really does go a long way.
Missha's web page describes it as the following:
"The M Perfect Cover BB Cream gives an even and natural-looking coverage with the soothing, moisturising properties of a cream. It is suitable for all skin types including acne-prone skin, and can be used as a makeup base or foundation."

Whitening + Anti-Wrinkle + UV Protection (SPF 42 PA+++)

Amazing Amazing Amazing product ... Give it a try ... You will love it

MAC Coppertone Blush

   I think I'm in love. Yes, you heard me. WITH THIS BLUSH hahaha. MAC descibes Coppertone blush as a peach brown with a matte finish. Don't be scared to wear this color. It looks a bit dark in the pan but once you put it on, it gives you this natural peachy flush. It makes me look fresh and awake and it's definitely not chalky at all. Thanks to Judy from itsjudytime on Youtube. This blush was in her MAC all time favorites and she wears it all the time so I had to get it myself. Great blush for a natural warm glow. I Highly recommend it :o)

The Duggar's Grief

   You may know them from TLC TV show called "19 Kids And Acounting". I love this family. I think they are the perfect family ever on earth. That's just my opinion. Sadly, they're going through a hard time. Few months back they have announced that they're expecting baby #20. But, their baby passed away at 19 weeks. So, Michelle Duggar miscarried. I was checking their web site and I read this heartbreaking news that nobody ever wants to go through. I've miscarried few times myself and it's the worst feeling in the world. I'm still not recovering from it mentally. I will be praying for you Duggars. Much love, peace and health your way.

Clipper Sleep Easy Tea

   I've been really into organic products lately. Organic skin care, organic makeup, and organic food. I went grocery shopping yesterday and I was on a hunt for organic and caffein free tea. I came across this amazing brand named Clipper. They have all kinds of organic and caffein tea. I picked up this one which is the sleep easy to try it since I really want a peachful and stress-free night because I'm trying to conceive. As soon as I got home I tried it. It tastes so good and it smells as good as it tastes too. It smells a little bit like oranges which i love. It helped me relax and it has soothing herbs which helped a lot. I'm going to pick up the peppermint tea next time.

My Makeup Swap

   I looooove swapping cosmetics off of Makeupalley. I get really amazing deals where I swap some of my stuff that are hardly ever used with someone else's new or like new products. By doing that I save a lot of money. I recently received three swappers packages. Here's a picture of what I got ...

- Bare Escentuals Buxom lipgloss in Bambi
- MAC Cream Color Base in Hush
- Josie Maran Argan Eyeshadow Quad
- Bobbi Brown Metallic Eyeshadow in Rockstar
- Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in #31

Honeycrisp Apples

Tasty ... Crispy ... Juicy ... Super Sweet ... Mildly Aromatic Flavor ... Excellent Storage Life

What more can I say about Honeycrisp Apples? They're indeed my favorite kind of apples with no doubt. I love how crispy and sweet it tastes. They can be a bit hard to find but once you see them in your grocery store GET SOME. It's the best fresh-eating apple variety ever.
