(English: My friend gave me Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation SPF 15 as my X’mas present earlier ! I have been using it for two weeks and let’s see what I think about this foundationembedded by Embedded Video
(English: Last September, I hauled some Laura Mercier foundation back home (refresh memory), one of those became my favourite (refresh memory), but for the other one, its fate wasn’t the same. At first when I started using it, I thought it was nice, however, after a few days of trial, I discovered some main defects. After that, I use it spontaneously… well, it’s been a few months now and let me share my comments with you:
Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15
My color – Real Sand
價錢 (Price): HK$330/ 9.6g
“Laura Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15 is a finely milled powder composed completely of natural elements with 15 active amino acids to clear the skin of toxins, promote healthy skin cell growth and fight the aging process.”
(English: I usually use E.L.F. Kabuki Brush to apply this foundation.
On the brush:
使用次數 (No. of Usage): around 30 times
用 後感: 我之前用過Bare Ecentuals, 都係比較出名既礦物粉底. 但係香港無得買, 上網買又好難揀色, 所以唯有買香港買得到既礦物粉底啦. 呢隻野我見都好多人讚好, 所以我就買黎試下. 初初用覺得佢上面都算薄 (但係我記得Bare Ecentuals仲薄) 同好貼. 搽左佢之後會覺得皮膚好有光澤. 佢既遮暇力都唔錯, 遮到鼻位d紅, 同埋黑眼圈都遮到70%. 本身都覺得唔錯ga. 點知, 用用下我發現我用左呢隻foundation之後下午會出多左油, 同埋個foundation到3pm會變暗. 我諗可能因為當時天氣好熱, 所以會有d咁既情況, 所以我停左用佢. 呢期比較冬同埋乾, 我再拎出黎用, 我覺得變暗既情況無咁犀利, 但係都有. 之前佢會變暗兩度色 (好恐怖), 而家就變暗一度到啦. 出油既情況就無之前咁勁 (而家我乾到用咩都唔會出油). 咁我無理由浪費左jar野, 所以而家係返mama屋企食飯就用下佢 (去mama屋企我唔會full makeup, 多數都淨係用下粉底). 希望快d用完佢就算. 可惜丫, 其實我幾鍾意佢上面個effect, 但係會變暗我就真係接受唔到喇. 如果你地要買, 真係係counter試完行成日先再決定佢適唔適合你呀!
(English: After-use Comment: I used Bare Ecentuals a couple years back and it was one of the most famous mineral brand. But I couldn’t get it in Hong Kong and it would be hard for me to pick the right colors online, therefore, I decided to try something local. I read quite a few rave comments about this mineral powder from Laura Mercier and decided to give it a go. At first, I felt the foundation was light on skin (but Bare Ecentuals’ are even lighter) and it stayed close to skin. After applying this foundation, I found my skin more radiant. Also, its coverage was quite nice, it covered the red areas of my nose really well and for dark eye circles, I thought it covered up to 70% of them. So far so good right? Nah!!!!! After a few days of compliment on this product, I started noticing my skin secreted way more oil in the afternoon and the foundation oxidized (turns to a dark shade) at around 3pm. Well, then I blamed on the weather (it was hot and humid at that time), so I stopped using it for a few months. Now, since the weather is cold and dry, I took it out again and gave it a second chance. The way it oxidized becomes less serious. It turned two shades darker during the summer time (horrible!!), and now it turns one shade dark. And my skin doesn’t secrete any oil in the afternoon (well….this is due to the fact that my skin is so dry now, nothing can create oil on my skin). In order not to waste this item, I use it whenever I go back to mom’s place for dinner (usually I won’t have full makeup, I just have the foundation on and that’s it). I hope to finish this thing real soon!! What a pity! I indeed love how it looks on my skin, but I cannot accept foundations that oxidize! So, if you want to get this, make sure you try it on your face at the counter, and walk around for the whole day before making your decision!)
