Swiss Beauty High Coverage Waterproof Base Foundation (SB-05) Review

Hello lovely ladies,

We all love to attend weddings, parties or any event because it means good clothes, good food, fun, gossip and good company. But getting ready is the most difficult part, no? If you have a good makeup look, you feel confident throughout the function.

So, Today I am here to review one such amazing foundation I purchased for my sister’s wedding. Its Swiss Beauty High Coverage Waterproof Base Foundation (SB-05).

COverI wanted to have a really good base foundation. I searched a lot online to get the best product but I got confused which shade would actually go well with my skin. And just to avoid the shade mismatch I decided to buy it from a local beauty store. There I found this lightweight, natural matte finish and waterproof foundation by Swiss Beauty that provides medium to high coverage. It claims to be high coverage but for me, it turned out to be a little darker than my skin tone. So, I use it for medium coverage.

Product Name: Swiss Beauty High Coverage Waterproof Base Foundation (SB-05)

Shades: It has a range of 6 shades. My shade is 04 – Natural Nude.

Texture: The texture isn’t thick but it’s definitely creamy. It does not run down. The consistency is light, smooth and easily blendable.

11

Application: Its really easily to apply. It works well with fingers, beauty blender and foundation brush. I have tried all three and it gives even application. I like using my beauty blender most.

Coverage: It claims to be high coverage foundation. It does work really well, provides an awesome coverage. When applied a thin layer, it gives my face an even skin tone and hides most of the dark spots or blemishes. The second layer can do wonder!! It hides all the acne marks and gives flawless face. But I personally avoid the second layer as it gives my face very orangish look and my face looks really dull.

Finish: It gives a smoother, flawless-looking finish on skin mattifying the oiliness, hiding dark spots and acne marks.

Staying Power: It stays well for about 5-6 hours in winters. In summers, it might be less than 4 hours.

Fragrance: It has a very mild-pleasant fragrance which I absolutely love!

Availability: It might be available at the beauty stores. For online shopping, its not very common product yet. It’s available only on Amazon.

  • Pros-
  • Gives medium to high coverage
  • Non-Cakey look
  • Very smooth application
  • Easily blend-able
  • Gives natural matte finish
  • Available in 6 shades
  • Good staying power
  • Moisturizes skin
  • Worth the price
  • Good Packaging
  • Feels light on skin
  • Water and transfer resistant (for me it worked 80%)

Cons-

  • Glass Bottle
  • Contains Paraben
  • Not available online

My Experience : I am very much satisfied with this foundation. It’s a value for money product. I get a little bit oil in my T-Zone and have few blackheads on my nose as well. This foundation really gives me a natural matte finish hiding most of my flaws. It moisturizes my skin without leaving it dry. I apply two pumps with my beauty blender and it blends in easily. It does not feel heavy on the skin at all. I set it with pressed powder to make it last longer. Although it’s transfer resistant but I feel its a bit transferable. Setting with compact makes it fine.

 

Will I recommend?

Definitely!! I would recommend to try it once. Its good for people with normal to combination skin.

Will I re-purchase it?

Yes!! For sure. I purchased mine in the shade Natural Nude but it’s a bit darker than my skin tone so applying a thin layer works perfectly for me.But  next time, I’ll go for the shade lighter than this.

My Verdict: 4.3/5

Overall Summary: In my opinion, it’s one of the best foundation I have ever used under 500 bucks. It doesn’t give that cakey finish. With this foundation, I feel confident as my skin looks even-toned yet natural. It helps to conceal flaws, dark spots, skin discoloration and under-eye circles to a good extent. Also, I never faced any issues like irritation or acne after using it. That’s a big relief!

Have you tried this foundation? If yes, do share your views on the same.

How Marriage Changes a Girl’s Life | The Indian Way

Marriage is a life-changing moment of anyone’s life. I feel like it’s a challenge for both the people – the bride and the groom. With marriage, there comes a big change in the lives of the two people because now we have to stay together forever! And, since we (the girls) have to leave our home, parents and siblings to stay with our husband and his family in a new environment, the change that we face after marriage is comparatively bigger than what a man experiences.

1 Marriage

According to my experience, these are the changes that every girl come across after she gets married.
Responsibilities: Before getting married, we don’t have any worries or responsibilities. But as soon as we get married, we get new responsibilities, we have to take care of our husband, our in laws, their relatives and so on.

1

Manage a home: Before marriage, we are almost independent, we live the way we want, we have freedom from household chores as the house is taken care by our mums. We don’t have to worry what to cook or what to serve in front of guests!! All these things get changed in our married life. We have to do all household chores (cooking, washing, cleaning). Basically, we have to manage a home!

Think before saying: Earlier, we don’t have to answer anyone. We don’t usually think what we are saying. Even if sometimes we do so, we have our siblings or someone who always covers up our mistakes. After marriage, we have to be cautious of what we are saying to keep everyone happy. Otherwise, it will turn into a gossip!! And, thus we become more calm and composed in usual cases after marriage. We learn to express ourselves better and fix things in a calm manner.

Meeting our friends: Before marriage, we enjoy going out with friends, to pursue personal interests, but after marriage this gets quite difficult. I am not saying that no one allows. Even if we don’t have any restrictions to meet our friends, it becomes very difficult to go out with them because we have some responsibilities, we have to balance everything before we go out.

Being stronger: Before marriage, we are strong enough to face the challenges, but marriage makes us stronger than ever. Every relationship has ups and down. Together we can outlive any storm. But at the same time we become emotionally weak as we miss our home and family. We care for them more than ever.

Focus on Career: Before getting married, sometimes, we are not able to concentrate on a few things. We always run to achieve the best in everything. But after marriage, once everything is settled, we can fully concentrate on our career, passions, and hobbies.

Maturity increases: We are carefree and immature before getting married. After marriage, the sense of responsibility and the level of maturity increases. We plan and set future goals wisely.

Taking decisions wisely: After we get married, the “me” changes to “we” and the way we make decisions changes to a large extent. We have to think of other’s perspectives and make decisions.

Priorities: After getting married, our priorities change. We think more about our home, family or husband, his comfort and feelings become our top most priority.

Everything has a bright and dull side.. We have already discussed the changes. Now, if we see on the bright side, there are millions of reasons marriage makes us happy.

It changes us for the better — stability, companionship, patience and more organized. We get to know what is love, what does commitment and relations mean to us.

  1. We get a new family. Understanding them, making bonds with them, interacting with them is a beautiful journey. It will take time to be one of them, but trust me, coping up with the new family really brings a big change in our life. We enjoy being with them.
  2. We get a husband who loves and take care of us. The other half of us who makes us feel complete, loved and protected.
  3. We get someone who always compliments us and is always proud of our achievements, no matter how little it is.
  4. We get a partner who always agrees to be our companion in sharing everything… be it an ice cream, a mug of coffee, random talks or our worries!!
  5. We get the best friend of our life with whom we can have the most fun, watch a movie or discuss anything.
  6. We get our in-laws in the form of our parents. If we take care of them, they will definitely love us like a daughter. This will bring us the real happiness.

If we consider our married life to be a burden or a heavy responsibility, it will feel like one. While if we enjoy it, embrace it and welcome it, it will become a new and wonderful experience of our life. Trust me!! So, it should be taken as the latter.

Give it a chance to grow in a healthy relationship, making other people (husband, in-laws) caring for us. It will become a beautiful experience. It’s a big change, but if we accept it from the bottom of our heart and try to adjust right after marriage, these challenges will not feel like a heavy burden. In fact, we will love doing all this!

So, that’s it for today. Thank you so much for stopping by! I really appreciate if you leave some love.
