Reader Query: Suggestion For A Good Base Makeup

Pinky asks………………..

“hi tanmayee…am pinky from Hyderabad…I need your help…my skin tone is little dusky(not so dark)…I need your suggestion for a good foundation and compact which perfectly blends my skin…I use maybelline bb cream(nude) which suits me but it doesnt stay for a long time…pls dooo reply..”


Pinky , thanks for the query 🙂

If budget is not a constraint for you, you could try the MAC Studio Fix Powder plus Foundation. Also, if your skin is not extremely dry, the studio fix powder is the best bet. It lasts long and gives good coverage. The price: INR 1800, but one pan would last really long.

Some good products on budget would be the Maybelline “Dream Matte Mousse Airbrush Finish” Foudation, which is reviewed on my blog. This lasts long and only a little quantity gives you enough coverage. Also, the Maybelline “BB stick” is a great bet topped with Rimmel “Lasting Finish Stay Matte” compact.

Also, your skin type matters here and do not forget to cleanse and moisturize your skin prior Make-up application. A good moisturizer suited to your skin works best.

Hope it helps and any more queries, do leave it in the comments….. 🙂


Oriflame Very Me “Peach Me Perfect ” Tinted Moisturizer Review

I have never tried Oriflame products until this which comes in a small and cute little tube. It looks bigger in the pictures than it actually is.  Recently, one of my friend’s beacame an Oriflame representative and I got this from her. Along with this, I got the Oriflame foot scrub, the blending brush, and the nude eye kohl. So, the review of these are coming up next, stay tuned :).

The Product : Oriflame Very Me “Peach Me Perfect” Tinted Moisturizer

The shade, texture, coverage: I got the shade “Dark” which suits my medium complexion beautifully. It just disappears on my skin giving a sheer dewy glow. It is kind of drying fast, needs to be applied with quick hands.

Its good for daily wear, as it gives very sheer coverage. It shall not cover dark circles or other blemishes, after all its a tinted moistirizer 🙂 . One thing which I do not really like about it is that it has shimmers in it, though very fine and almost obscure. When blended one can see very micro glitters here and there. Over all its a good decent TM, as we hardly have any Indian brand offering good tinted moisturizers. Some might feel it to be priced overtly for the quantity. Oriflame often gives offers on its products, its better to catch hold of them then.

The Swatch below, The right part of the hand from the mid, has the TM and the left side does not have it.

The Price: INR 298 for 30 ml

Summary: A good buy for a tinted moisturizer. Gives a sheer, dewy coverage , good for daily wear. The con I feel is , it has shimmers in it, though very fine and the shade selecton is limited. It has only two shades – light and dark.

Product Score: 3.5/5
