Lemming List :P

I like anything makeup-related but these two just won't let me sleep :P I hope I'd be able to get my hands on them. Thankfully, a friend is going to the US two weeks from now. I hope she'd be able to get these for me :P

1) Korres Vitamins and Ginger Foundation

I've been reading only positive reviews for this foundation. I think that I can make it my daily foundation since it is said to be lightweight. Great alternative for my Mary Kay Medium-Coverage liquid foundie.
According to Sephora website:

Ginger & Vitamins Foundation SPF 10
What it is:
A lightweight, water-based foundation that is packed with vitamins to balance the skin.
What it does:
Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation provides sheer to medium buildable coverage, a creamy finish, and SPF 10 UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum sun protection. This brand favorite contains ginger to tone and clarify with Antioxidant Vitamins C and E to prevent visible signs of aging.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Mineral Oils
- Petro-chemicals
- Propylene Glycols
- Ethanolomines
- GMOs
- Synthetic Dyes
- Synthetic Fragrances
Size: 1.35 oz

2. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

Sephora Website Item Blurb:
Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush
What it is:
A long-wearing, solar-baked blush that lasts up to 12 hours.
What it does:
Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish for an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by Tarte's best-selling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay's nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin's moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony. The result? Blush that wears better, longer, and truer!
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan
What else you need to know:
This blush features the following Skinvigorating™ ingredients:
- Vitamins A and E, two natural preservatives that act as anti-inflammatory emollients and protect against free radical damage
- Vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress and premature signs of aging, while brightening the skin
- Amazonian clay, a nutrient-rich, multitasking, skin-balancing clay that reduces dryness and flakiness, improves skin clarity, elasticity, firmness, and texture while removing oil from the skin's surface for smooth application and wear
Size: 0.2 oz
A common denominator of these two is the fact that they claim to be natural and paraben-free. This definitely ups their ante for me :P Keeping my fingers crossed that I'd have these this time next month :P

the size of the tarte blushes killed my lemming for it, the size isnt worth the price tag in my honest opinion, the consolation would probably be the good pigmentation and the quality, but then, nawala na yung interes ko for those amazonian clay blushes hahaha! :D

korres foundie though is a must-try. :D

ill send you a sample with your package. :)
