Malaysian in Tokyo. Welcome to my happy space!

my current foundation.

I've ditched my previous foundation due to major breakouts I've been having lately (must be that bloody bride-from-hell syndrome people talk about) and tried to minimize makeup whenever I go out.

Even went to the skin doctor to have her advice. Basically I told her to "do anything that can make my skin back to the way it was 5 years ago because I'm getting married in a few months" and she almost rolled on the floor laughing at my face. Pfftt.

It's not funny. I'm so scared looking at my skin now because somehow I have rashes everywhere even though I'm not allergic to seafood or anything allergy-able, I have breakouts on my face especially when it's that time of the month and I'm grumpy, and the last time I went back to Penang Mum tried to convince me to consume some jamu she says "good for inner health".

But somehow, after seeing the doctor who laughed at my face my skin has been getting better (not 100% though) - only thing is I have some leftover scars from the breakouts. So I went on the hunt for good foundation/concealer the other day.

Bought it the other day when I was at Johor Premium Outlet, there's a store selling discounted cosmetic stuff and skincare - and, boy, do I regret this one. The salesgirl ripped me off by giving me the wrong tone for my skin, and the powder just won't settle on my skin that it makes it looks so bad.

Nice case though. 

2) MAC Lightful foundation

Tried this one after Estee Lauder AeroMatte and it's been in my handbag everyday now. It has SPF 25, settles on my skin perfectly and can even function as a concealer - literally everything I wanted in a compact powder since I get lazy putting on sunblock and concealer nowadays. 

The lighter MAC Lightful and the darker AeroMatte

(But if you're a MAC user, try to get this in a shade darker than you normally get from MAC because apparently it's a lighter shade than any range of MAC.) 

So I'm quitting AeroMatte for now. MAC Lightful even gets rave reviews on Makeupalley, which is a good thing since I believe everything the site says.

Letting go of the AeroMatte (deep warm shade, used once I swear), price negotiable. Heck I even might give it away for free. So if you're an avid user of AeroMatte, let me know if you want!


  1. Hello, my name is Vern and I was wondering if you ever decide to sell your lightful compact....even if it's empty, will you consider me and send me an email? TIA

    1. Hi Vern, unfortunately I'm still using it :) It looks used somemore, I don't think you'd want it.
