FAQ & DISCLAIMER

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.

    Quick Review: Suqqu Frame Fix Lasting Pact Foundation

    Hi hi

    This entry features the Suqqu Frame Fix Lasting Pact Foundation - I have a sample of it from my friend when she went to Japan recently.  I have been using it for the most of last week, and I think I am ready to give you my overview impressions of the product.   The sample shade that I am using is 102, which is a good match for my skintone. 

    Product Description taken from Suqqu website 


    This UV-protective, emulsion pact foundation does not need a makeup base, and spreads smoothly to fit to your skin. It absorbs excess sebum, covers pores and unevenness, giving the skin an extra smoothness and a naturally luminous finish.

    This is the shade range, and how the whole compact (case & sponge sold separately) looks like.  I don't understand Japanese, but you can see the price list in Yen and so on. 

    Here's a swatch of the foundation - sorry I didn't take pics of the mini sanple pan, it's looking a little messy after I have been dipping my brush into it, so there's only this hand swatch.  The sample pan contains 1g of product, but I think it can last me for about 10 days of usage.  I usually just dab my foundation brush into the pan, and stippled it onto an area of my face, buff and blend and then move on to another part of my face. 

    I find that shade 102 is able to correct the redness in my skintone, and it is beigy enough to just neutralise everything.  

    The finish of the foundation is medium to full coverage.  It is creamy and very easy to blend.  I like how it is blendable, and easy to build up.  The foundation is pretty long lasting, and it does feel quite rich.  I didn't notice any oxidation throughout the day, and I would set the foundation with my loose power, pressed powder etc, and the results are more or less the same.  

    In these pictures you can see the finish of the foundation - I feel like it does make my skin look quite flawless, and the coverage is quite full on.  The finish of the foundation is a semi-matte finish.  

    Overall, I have really enjoyed using this foundation.  If Suqqu is available in Singapore, I think I would be VERY keen to explore their base products - and most probably purchase the full sized product.  It is very easy for travel, and I like how it blends and the flawless coverage it gives - these two factors are the standout features of this foundation for me. 

    I am wearing Tarte Amazonian clay blush Magic on my cheeks and Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet on my lips. 

    Hope this quick review has been helpful, and thanks for reading!
