The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation

The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation – Review

Hi everyone! Today I have a product that I have been using for quite some time now. I bought it from my last visit at the TBS store. The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation is my first try at cushion foundations. This is mainly because the cushion foundation trend is made famous by Korean brands, and most of them are available online. So I hadn’t the heart to buy from them without swatching.

This is when TBS launched its new makeup collection with #SealedWithAKiss, under the umbrella of Jacqueline’s signature range. I have a lot of faith in TBS, so I decided to pick one cushion foundation from them. Not that they gave me a lot of shade options, but I was happy to note that one of the two (seriously? just two?) shades did blend in seamlessly on my NC 40 complexion. 🙂 So I picked up 03 Malawi Beach almost immediately. The other shade option is 04 Wanaka Honey.

Aroma Essentials Insta Clear Everyday Mask – Review

Hello everyone! A dear friend visited me last month and she got me a gift. 🙂 B was flying from Bangalore, and is a frequent user of a brand that I only heard from her. Well B is a juorno and she has quite a lot of knowledge about the famous people in and around her city. Mrs.Madhurima Ramakrishnan has gained a lot of popularity for her brand Aroma Essentials. It is a 100% natural skincare brand based out of Bangalore. B said that this lady primarily conjured her products with ingredients from her kitchen! And now that she knew I have began preferring organic products, she got me their Insta Clear Everyday Mask from Mrs.Ramakrishnan. Thank you B for the lovely gift! 🙂 I was delighted to know about the brand and its founder, and couldn’t wait to give it a try.
