October Makeup Haul featuring SEPHORA | Benefit | tarte |Mirenesse

Sponsored Post
Last month I was lucky enough to be part of Sephora Digital Campaign and was allowed to shop for my desired products in the makeup category at their Malaysia website.  So here they are, my very first makeup haul that I would like to review for you guys as a makeup lover. 

Whenever it comes to Sephora, the big names like Tarte, Benefit Cosmetics, Dior, Urban Decay, Too Faced immediately popped up in my mind.   

Heard of the natural properties (amazonian clay) in Tarte products and their high- performance makeup bases which comes in an array of shades.  Thus, without doubting, I trusted my instinct and entirely believe that their products will suit my normal to oily skin type.  
TARTE - BB TINTED TREATMENT 12-HOUR PRIMER BROAD SPECTRUM SUNSCREEN SPF30 (LIGHT)  
RM138 
Decided to get their tinted moisturiser/primer since I realised I have tested all sorts of makeup bases (bb cream, foundation, primer, bb cushion, cc cream and powder foundation) except this one.    Got my precious tube in Light shade and I am glad I have made the correct guess for my shade lol.   

According to the instructions, we should shake the product well before using.   Initially, I thought this will be a rubbery or creamy consistency kind of product but then it turned out to have a mousse (think of Chocolate mousse!) consistency, impressive!
I must say, the performance of this amazing formulation is beyond expectation.  Instead of just smoothing out the uneven texture of my skin but filling in the pores, it also provides a no-makeup makeup kind of coverage (not too sheer but decent enough, since I can just apply this without topping it up with foundation for my daily look).   It also contains SPF 30 which functions as a sunscreen which makes it a must have for lazy girls like me (skipping a step in makeup is a bliss especially during rush hours) :P 
                Left = Tarte               Right = natural complexion

Although the comparison picture does not look like it has any difference, however, trust me, this really made a humongous difference!  Adore how it helps to retain the greasiness of my skin and made my makeup stay on longer even without applying powder on my face.

BENEFIT COSMETICS - TINTS TO TEASE
 RM90
Benetint

Benetint has a very strong rose scent which I personally felt is overpowering.   It is also the most watery tint among all but the red rose color shows up pretty well, especially on cheeks.    
 Looking pale after layers of base makeup?  Tints to the rescue!
Simply add a few dots or strokes on the apples of your cheeks and quickly dab it around for that 白里透红 (rosy cheeks) look.
Cha-Cha Tint
Next up is the orangey Cha Cha Tint which Benefit claimed it as a mango-tinted lip and cheek stain.  The consistency of this vary from Benetint, as this one is creamier but not sticky and best thing is, this is not as drying as Benetint. 

Posie Tint
Here's my favourite tint among all, poppy-pink tint reminds me of Barbie Doll and with it I can be one! <3  

Rating: 7/10
Rachael loves its:
pigmentation
vibrant color
able to use on lip and cheeks
slightly creamy but not sticky (Cha Cha Tint & Posie Tint)
Dislikes:

does not last long

MIRENESSE - KIT VELVET LIP LIFT PLUMPER MOISTURE SHINE MINI'S BOX 6G RM62
Was looking for Dior Lip Glow and Lip Maximizer but too bad Sephora online does not carry those.  :(  While in search,  I came across this famous Austrialian brand - Mirenesse which I never heard about.  
Here are some swatches for you guys and below are how those glosses look like on my lips.

No. 55 resembles Dior Lip Maximizer the most in case you guys are looking for a substitute
No. 56 is a nude color 
No. 57 is more towards a dusty / mothy pink kind of shade
No. 58 is a hot pink shade which is my personal favourite!

Rating: 7/10
Rachael loves its:

colors
applicator
cocoa butter scent
plumping effect
Dislikes:

too sticky for me
