Happiness in tiny little things.
Sharing with you a little something from my office desk.
|This undergone a makeover few weeks ago and it took me so long to share it but I just want to share with you guys what brightens my day especially when there are just so many papers to organize.|
I really like finding fun things amongst my daily grind.
A few days ago, I stopped by HBC and got to grab San San's mousse collection, endorsed by none other than Anne Curtis. At first I was hesitant to try it because I know that finger-applied make-up can either do really well or not, but the collection got me curious, I just had to get my hands "dirty".
|The collection is very limited but for it's small round of pots, I have to conclude that it's enough to make a statement out of. I look forward to the brand's extension of the mousse line to also include mousse concealer and eyeshadow perhaps?|
You've heard me rave about "airbrushed" make-up but this time, I got to try "air-whipped" naman. :) Check out the photo of San San's Mousse Make-up Collection below.
At first try, I had such a hard time using the mousse foundation. See I have already found my comfort zone using make-up brushes yet there I was, back to the very basics of using just my fingers for make-up application again. It even got to the point that I got so frustrated. It was difficult to blend and I couldn't quite get rid of the streaks of foundation I had on some areas of my face. Simply put, my first try was a disaster. I had to correct more than perfect my make-up to have a decent face of the day.
That was until I figured out what went wrong. I used the mousse foundation on dry skin, and just like in stains ot tints, using such type of make-up on dry skin will inevitably result in problematic application. Realizing this, I made sure my skin was well prepped for my next attempt of air-whipped wonder. I first applied my day moisturizer, I'm currently cleaning my L'oreal White Perfect pot as it's almost all used-up! I feel like I need to search again for my next whitening/correcting/toning skincare. I have uneven skintone especially on the face, that's why I always try to find new skin perfecting products ever so often. :)

All in all, I would have to say I really enjoyed using San San's mousse collection. For one, it doesn't demand too much from me compared to when I use other types of make-up, those of which are best used/some even requiring, certain tools and brushes. I like the simplicity of using the mousse make-up. Perfect for everyday use, I should say. The foundation for example already has SPF15 on top of the Vitamins A, C and E that San San Cosmetics are known to always have in their products.
On a lighter note, I'm so excited to use up my mousse collection as I fell truly in love with the packaging of the product! It's classy and so durable! I want to recycle it and use it for my many little trinkets. Arts and crafts enthusiasts can definitely find joy in recycling the collection's outstanding cases.
What do you think of the collection?
