Splurge # 4 Singapore Haul – Face Products

Now its time for part two of the Singapore splurge – its all about the face!  I have to admit I went a little bit foundation crazy over there, foundations can be a little bit expensive in Australia so I thought it was the perfect time to purchase everything I had been dreaming of.

New Foundations

First up is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation in Light Medium Beige – I had wanted this foundation for as long as I can remember and I have not been disappointed!  Tarte has been notoriously hard to get in Australia (not now we have Sephora though!) so when I had the chance to get it I jumped all over it.  This foundation is full coverage but for some miracle reason it does not feel it, it is quite weightless but definitely gives me the coverage I need.  I have a feeling this will be something I repurchase. Continuing with Tarte I have the Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturiser in Light Medium – This is a much lighter creamier version of the foundation and something that I have been wearing a lot!  I wouldn’t say this is extremely long wearing on my oily skin but when I have a short day at uni or am going for lunch this is my go to.  It’s beautifully lightweight and natural looking but I would say it gives more coverage than the average tinted moisturiser.  I have been dreaming about getting my hands on the Makeup Forever HD High Definition Foundation – This little beauty is exactly what I wanted, something with quite a lot of coverage but doesn’t look cakey plus it photographs like a dream!  I recently has a wedding to attend, I wore this and it really did look wonderful in photographs.  It also lasted all day in some very humid heat.


Moving away from liquid to powder foundation is the Tarte Amazonian Full Coverage Air Brush Foundation in Light Beige – I haven’t really used a powder foundation since they first came out many years ago.  For some reason they always made my face really itchy!  But I have heard so much buzz about this one I had to give it a go.  I love this for days when I’m in a rush and just need a few swipes of this powder and my base is practically done.  This is extremely long lasting and does not go shiny, even on this here oil slick!  Another powder foundation I picked up is the Chanel Vitalumiere Loose Powder Foundation in No.20 – I love Chanel foundations and this is no exception, its is so silky and smooth it just glides over your skin, it also smells divine!  This one isn’t as full coverage as the Tarte one but I actually love swiping this over a light tinted moisturiser to add a bit of extra coverage.  Finally for foundation its the Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion Foundation in Natural Beige – This type of foundation is completely new to me!  I had recently seen the queen of makeup Lisa Eldridge use one in a tutorial and wanted to try it.  It is such a strange little thing, it is a sponge soaked in foundation.  When you press the little pad into it, it is actually a liquid foundation that comes out!  But this foundation is absolute gold, when you press it into the skin it gives amazing coverage plus a beautiful airbrushed finish, actually making my pores almost disappear! Who wouldn’t love that?!

Finally I had to restock my beloved Nars bronzer, but this time I decided to upscale and get the Nars Algorithm Laguna Bronzer Palette with the ITA Brush – This is the regular laguna bronzer in a beautiful palette with a mini Ita brush, I wanted to purchase the Ita brush itself but when I came with the bronzer as well who could resist?  As usual the bronzer is perfect and I pretty much use it everyday and with the brush included I can really up my contouring game.

So that’s my Singapore haul concluded, after looking at all this I feel that I may really have a shopping addiction!

What do you think of my choices?  Have you got any suggestions for my next haul?  Because we all know there will be one!
