Maybelline Dream Cushion

Don’t tell me that I’m 1000 years behind for talking about a cushion foundation on this blog. I just finally gave into the hype y’all. It was on sale and I was on the market for new foundation/tinted moisturizer that I can use daily. Not gonna lie, it was an unplanned purchase but it was somewhat on the horizon.

The coverage is beautiful for daily wear. To me it hits the soft spot of evening out my skin without looking like I’m wearing too much makeup. Application wise, I just dunked my beauty blender and dab dab dab dab dab. The puff is completely usable too, I just don’t want to dirty the compact. So I opted for a separate sponge instead.

For my normal skin, I can not set it with powder and I prefer to go that way. At this moment I don’t have a good setting powder that doesn’t make my face look like I’m wearing a truck of makeup. So I just go sans powder. One step less to do. But I have read that some people prefer to set it to make the foundation lasts longer.

I wear the shade 30 sand and it does a great job of brightening my face without making it look ashy.

The cushion retails for €15.99 (but I got mine for €8.00).

This photo was taken in Roermond in front of a stranger’s house after hours and hours of walking around. I can report back that I have found a comfortable pair of ballerinas that don’t give me blisters!!! Which only makes me want to buy more colors. Maybe silver and red?

Deo wasn’t very supportive with how I look today. Please dont @ him, he’s not at all ashamed of walking with me. He’s just not very into the all black ensemble. Can you imagine if I already have the red ballet flats? They would look so good with this outfit. Please stop me from online shopping…

By the way, do you think I need to smile less on my outfit photos? Asking for a friend.

This t-shirt was once belonged to my uncle. He had to stash some of his belongings at my parent’s house whilst he was moving houses. And he seemed to forgot about this t-shirt so I adopted it from him. I don’t think it’s an official merchandise or anything but the quality of this t-shirt is impeccable! It’s possibly the softest t-shirt I have ever worn. Mark my words, I will never get rid of this tee.

In all honesty, I don’t know when is the best time to wear a trench coat. To me it’s not warm enough for temperature around 15-20 degrees Celsius but then too hot for > 20. I feel like I should figure out more ways to utilize this coat because I love the color so much!

If denim on denim is a Canadian tux, what would white on white be?

Lately I have been feeling uninspired when I’m at home after work. My husband is a very busy man lately. He took up a freelance job to help his friend out whilst still having to work on his own stuff at home. Which means, we talk/do something together less and less. And the importance of having a hobby has never been more apparent to me. I do read quite a bit now. But out of the 8 waking hours at home, I can’t spend the whole 8 on reading. I’m just not that kind of girl anymore.

So I turned to cleaning/decluttering my home. I’m also trying to rejig the whole situation. I’ve been living here for more than a year and I don’t think I have made a conscious effort to make it homey. There are still a lot that I can do. Do you guys have any tips on redecorating on a budget? I’d like to hear if you do!
