TFS Glamax Mascara

I bought this Glamax Mascara in Power Volume for my everyday use from The Face Shop (TFS) months ago. Damage was about PhP600-PhP700 although the original price should be around PhP800.

Glamax Mascara 2 001

This is the second mascara I bought from TFS and is my last mascara purchase from them.

Looks kind of clumpy

I liked it at first. In just one or two applications, I see the volume that I want. Only the fallout irked me. Now, as you may notice, it’s almost as if there’s none applied. I’m probably harsh on the product since I use it for months now. But I have other mascaras that I use, so it shouldn’t have dried so quickly.

Maybelline Yellow Corrector

Maybelline Yellow Corrector 001

My Mum and I were invited to my Aunt’s wedding in Chicago. I wasn’t into makeup then, but at the last minute I thought I should look good in her wedding. I needed at least cover my dark circles, so I got the Maybelline Yellow Corrector out of tight budget.

Oh wait, I think I got this from Ulta using a coupon. Haha~ I don’t remember. 😛

Urban Decay Vegan Palette

I know some of you ladies wanted this palette more than the Naked. I thought I’d share pictures of the palette and swatches to help you decide with your purchase.

Palette + potion
Palette + primer potion

The palette includes the Sin Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I haven’t seen how the primer looks like, but if I base it on the Sin eyeshadow — it’s a light shade of brown that’s probably a good base for the fair-skinned although it’s slightly shimmery. I wonder if the primer potion is shimmery too.

Revlon Beyond Natural in Nude

This is one of the makeups my Mum got me from her latest US trip. I’m ♥in’ it.

Revlon Beyond Natural 001

When she gave this to me, I realized I have more bronzers than blushes. So I’m really happy to have this in my collection.

Revlon Beyond Natural 002

As you can see, in one pan is a blush and bronzer.

Revlon Beyond Natural 003

I use a blemish balm cream (bb cream) which makes me look pale, so having the right blush or bronzer is a must. The Revlon Nude blush and bronzer gives me that natural look that I want.

Review: Hanskin Caviar Gold BB Cream

review

I tried Hanskin Caviar Gold BB Cream for a couple of weeks and finally surrendered that it’s not suited for my skin. It makes my face very pale and dries my skin because of its thick consistency. This product is more suited for those with oily skin and very fair complexion, probably caucasian skin.

The Hanskin Caviar Gold BB Cream has SPF 21, aloe, caviar and vitamin B. It has whitening and wrinkle-prevention ingredients as well.

Review: BeneFit’s Dr. Feelgood

review

I’m a fan of BeneFit Cosmetics and one of my favorite products by them is Dr. Feelgood. I have big open pores and applying foundation is a pain because of the build up in the pore. Ewwww. Dr. Feelgood is a good solution for my problem skin. It is a balm which fills in lines and open pores. It has vitamin C and mattifies the skin. I don’t really care about the last 2, I just want less noticeable pores. If you know a similar product, please let me know!

Estee Lauder Signature – Mocha Lipstick

This is one of the few lipsticks that I haven’t used yet. My Mum and Lolas are into reds, so other colors end up given to me. 🙂

Estee Lauder Signature in Mocha

I thought this was a Lancome lipstick when I first saw it since my other Estee Lauder lipsticks are in rectangular/cornered cases.

Of course I thought wrong. 😛 Here’s Estee Lauder’s description of their Signature line lipsticks:

  • Full-coverage color has true character and depth.
  • Finish is lustrous for a smooth, sophisticated shine.
  • Rich, hydrating formula feels light and comfortable.

Etude House Juicy Pop Tube #13

Last month, I blogged about my Etude House Juicy Pop Tube purchase.

Juicy Pop Tube #13

The Etude House Juicy Pop Tube costs only PhP128 which is about $3 or less. I tested about 3 or 4 tubes and chose the shimmery pink — the #13.

Turns out to be sheer and hardly made my lips look pink. I wasn’t expecting it to be pigmented, but not as disappointing as this. Also, it has too much glitters. I squeezed out a gunk of glitter one time. I wiped that off and, when I applied on my lips, my lips still became silver. *facepalms* That pissed me off because the glitters were hard to remove. Eventually, I learned that if you have the tube placed vertically in your pouch or bag, the cap part should be upward so the glitters would settle at the bottom.

Tony Moly Expert Triple BB Cream

I’m pretty much a BB cream newbie. I’ve only tried Etude House Magic BB Cream (I should do a review on this one since I use it regularly) and I find it pretty good although lacking in coverage. This review is not about that particular BB cream. It’s about the sample BB cream I won from Lizz Buenaventura.

For those not in the know, BB creams aka blemish balms are the latest craze in Asia. They are multi-functional skincare products which can moisturize, soothe, heal, cover and protect the face. Some BB creams offer sun protection and whitening properties too. It is used like a moisturizer but sometimes I just use it as base and then apply foundation over it.

Urban Decay: Alice in Wonderland palette

I was going through photos then I realized I forgot to blog about the Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland palette. My ‘soon’ has taken almost ages. *lol*

Air21 package

I pre-ordered the limited-edition palette around the month of February and it arrived by early April. Super worth the wait!

Sephora packaging

When I saw the Sephora packaging, I suddenly miss being in the US and visiting Sephora even if I didn’t have any money to shop. 😛

I slowly opened the package and took lots of pictures. It’s that special that it requires much camwhoring. XD
