Review: Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

5:47:00 AM

Of course, anyone would love to own a concealer that is not only budget friendly, but also gives a long lasting and great coverage. This new concealer by Maybelline is definitely stealing the spotlight from the highly raved LA girl HD concealer. And you want to know why? Scroll down for details! :)
I got myself Maybelline Fit Me concealer in Sand priced at P 299.00

THE PACKAGING. The product is packaged in a long and slim plastic tube . The cap is attached to a doe foot applicator. I actually find it unhygienic to put the applicator back in the tube. However, with little amount of product, it will only last for about half a year or maybe less.

COVERAGE AND CONSISTENCY.The shade, sand is perfect as eye brightener. I usually apply it on top of my foundation and makes my dark circles look less tired. A small amount of product can provide even up to medium coverage. In addition to that, it stays put in long hours with minimal creasing. There was a time wherein my foundation was already creasing, but the concealer is still intact. Lastly, it has a build-able coverage.

OVERALL.  This product is definitely a steal. A beauty. It's pretty decent for its price.

Review: Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

4:12:00 AM

Maybelline extended their sale until January 31. I've been picking up a lot of stuff from their counter and today's review is one of their best products. It's been quite some time that I've been forcing my Loreal lumi and  their newest true match liquid foundation to work on me. Sadly, it won't really cooperate and it slides off after some time. 

On a recent trip in Trinoma, I picked up the Maybelline Fit Me foundation. The shade I got is 125 Nude beige.

Maybelline says,
Foundation for normal and oily skin.
  • Mattifies and refines pores
  • Matches natural tone
  • Natural seamless finish

THE PACKAGING. The foundation comes in a glass bottle. It has no pump so you may end up pouring out everything at the back of your hand. You have to be careful with this one. What I do is to shake it first so upon opening, I can scoop out good amount around the mouth of the bottle.

COVERAGE AND CONSISTENCY. . What I love about this product is that it lasts up to 6 hours. Again, I have an oily skin and 6 hours of good makeup is already a great thing. In terms of consistency, the product is build-able and gives a good amount of coverage. Though you have to bear in mind that while it builds up to medium, it cannot hide those huge pores.

OVERALL. This wears beautiful on the skin. It can hide a few acne marks and believe me, my sister has a terrible skin and it works wonder on her.

Will I purchase again? Yes. It is a great product for P 480.

Review: Nichido Press Powder

10:41:00 PM

Happy Friday everyone! Today, I'll be reviewing Nichido Pressed Powder. For the past few days, I've been testing out different foundations. Some of them are not long-lasting. But of course powders can do the trick. They go directly on top of your foundation to maximize longevity. They are designed to set and mattify makeup so I went out to look for a product that will, too, override my oily skin. So last week, I bought the Nichido pressed powder.

According to the sales lady, this is a good oil control product. For 100 pesos, it's definitely worth a try. However, after 2-3 hours, the powder slides off my T-zone. And No, I'm not willing to blot every now and then. 

It comes in a sturdy blue sleek compact with a huge mirror. The box description goes,  "A fine textured, matte finish pressed powder that makes your skin looks smooth, natural and flawless. Perfect for touch-ups."

When I swatched this powder, I was amazed of its pigmentation. It provides a matte finish that is good with foundations that are dewy. Though coverage is really nice, I find it chalky and cannot control oil. Nakaka enhance pa ng eyebags.

Sadly, as opposed to those who gave this product a hype, I don't like it.

Review: Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain

11:59:00 PM

The first time I saw this lip product, I instantly assumed that it's a liquid lipstick. So yes, the beautiful packaging made me skip the reading part. 

Today I'll be reviewing Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in shade 010 LA Exclusive. The Moisture stain promises the hydration of a balm, shininess of a gloss and pigmentation of a stain. I love all the three promises, but the last one I doubt. 

I've read a lot of great hypes for this product so I grabbed one. Actually, it was not something that you will love at first swatch. Parang sayang pera. And I thought that I got the wrong shade for the nth time. The pigmentation isn't intense and I find the staining power minimal. However, after months of using it, I found it great for daily wear. The light color, moisture and hydration is all there. But if you are the type that is after that Pak-na-pak look. This won't work for you.

I use this baby only when I do super smokey eyes. It tones down the fierce look. Also, if i'm going out to pick up something in the market. 

It's really a good product if you want your lips to look hydrated. I bought it for P 250 instead of the original price that is P 625. If this on a regular price, i believe it is not worth buying.  XD

Net weight: 8 ml

Wide petal applicator.

I like the packaging and the hydration it gives. Do I love it? If they will keep selling this for P 250, then it will be worth it.

Review: Loreal True Match Lumi Foundation

9:12:00 PM

Some of us are prudent in spending especially on makeup. We tend to search for the best product over the internet and make sure everyone else's agree before we make the purchase, right? Others may contest that it's easier and more practical to spend on the high end ones than to spend over and over again searching for the best drugstore product. However, if you are starting in the makeup business and would have 3 shades for every type of makeup, then drugstore would be far more economical.

Today, we will check on Loreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup SPF 20.

I stumbled upon this product a couple of times already when I googled "the best drugstore foundations"And based on some reviews, this product is said to have a flawless coverage with glow. With this, I opted for one. Anyway, if you are wondering where I got my foundation, I bought it from Chedelyn's store located in Pop Culture Trinoma.

The foundation the sales lady gave me is W5 Sand Beige that I found to be darker than my actual shade. So I checked online for the suitable shade for me.  Because I have green veins, I fall under the category of warm. I should be around W3 or W4.

THE PACKAGING. What I like about the product is that it comes with a sturdy glass bottle with pump. Pwede mabagsak.  Plus, with a pump. I can get the right amount of product. Commonly, you will only need just 1-2 pumps of product to cover up the entire face. Lastly, product weighs 30 ml. That's actually a lot.

The consistency of the product is liquid-y and easy to work with.

COVERAGE AND CONSISTENCY. In terms of coverage, it is lightweight and cannot cover up minor imperfections. The finish is dewy and it looks healthy and natural on the skin. I believe it will work best for those with dry and flawless skin. 

I have been using this for a week now and sadly, I don't think this will be a favorite. It was only after 2-3 hours that my T-zone became pretty oily and after 6 hours that it enhanced my already oily face (kahit sa pisngi ma-oil) - that's on my forehead, left and right cheek, and nose.

In the photo below, I have a comparison of Loreal Lumi and True Match, I bought the Truematch first. I've read in blogs that they prefer the old formula so I tested them out. Both haven't lasted long. However, when it comes to coverage I find the formula of True Match better. As you see, my dark circles look brighter.

OVERALL. As the labels says, luminous, it is meant to give that radiant look, but ang lakas maka langis. I tried this with primer and setting powder, still my face ended up greasy. Will I still use it? Yes, but only in air conditioned places.

review of revlon

Review: Revlon Photoready Cream Blush

9:43:00 PM

For someone with a huge square face, I'm not really into blushes. I prefer countouring my face than emphasizing my cheek bones. Blush and contour actually go hand in hand, but I don't want to go full makeup especially during field work. Sayang makeup.  

I got myself a cream blush from Revlon just because it's on sale. Got it for P 150. And though it's really cheap, I don't think it's a steal for the shade I got. hahah :( I don't swatch when I buy makeup. I simply pick up stuff so that explains a number of regrets.

Net weight: 12.4 grams

The shade is Pinch which is the lightest shade.It's super light that it barely show up. I believe it will stand out on pale skin and if you're looking for a more natural finish. My reason for picking it up is the shade or color of the product by the packaging. I assumed that it is a vibrant peachy color. Pati sa pagbili ng makeup, assumera pa rin ako. So ayan, regret. 

When it comes to the packaging, you'll find it un hygienic to dip your fingers. 

Lastly, the product is silicon based that means it is less likely to oxidise or change in color. Not only that, it fills up the imperfection of the skin creating smooth texture. The bad news is that it keeps not only the moisture of the face, it also keeps the dirt and bacteria.

Am I still using it? Yes. The product has a light shimmer so I use it to add glow on my skin. I haven't tried the other shades that are wearable so I won't say that won't purchase again.

Review: Revlon Absolute Radiance Two Way Powder

11:09:00 PM

I bought some Revlon products to try out and here goes the first and only star of the items that I bought - It's the Revlon Absolute Radiance Two-Way powder foundation. I got it for sale at P 400 that is originally priced for P 1,000.  Hooray for sale! :) Again, as mentioned in my previous post, I bought the product from the Revlon counter in Farmers plaza in Cubao.

Net weight: 9.1 grams
Expiration: 12 M

The shade I got is 140 Natural Orcher

It comes with a sponge.

Let's talk about coverage. The product gives an amazing and flawless finish. What's more amazing is that it delivers medium to full coverage. With one swipe, you get a lot of product that is build-able It doesn't cake and is great for touch ups too. Ladies and gentlemen, a foundation that is true to its words- an absolute radiance. Bravo! 

I kept mentioning about my work. As a field engineer, believe me, ang lakas maka itim. Also, the tremendous heat is making me look like I went to war - and I surely kept saying this too. hahah. That entails why I kept looking for a miracle worker. And yes, the brightening properties are a lot of help.

FOTD: Featuring Revlon Absolute Radiance

So do I like it? I love it <3 Instant fairness. I'm giving this product a 5/5.
