All Glammed Up with Kat . . .

Now I really have to give my praises to this wonderful waterproof mascara that live up to its promises! I now brand thee, Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Very Black, as my everyday Gym Mascara.

Yes! I’ve been using this product whenever I go to the gym. And it doesn’t smear, smudge, run at all (despite the storm of sweat that runs down my face. Of all the make ups that I can’t live without, a mascara earns a spot on my the list. I can go out without a blushers, foundations, powders, and lipsticks as long as I have my trusty mascara on. Because for me, if the eyes are the windows to the soul, then ones eyelashes are the perfectly complimenting shutters for those windows to show ones personality living in ones exterior. Okay whatever…haha

Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Very Black

So… I got this in a pack. 2 bottles in one packaging. I got mine for Php350.00 from a Facebook seller (who got her items form the US – so these are authentic.) It comes in a pretty pink and black bottle. Its applicator wand just have small bristles which requires a bit more effort in application.

Great Lash Waterproof Mascara

I’ve never been a fan of Maybelline but after trying two of their mascaras, this, the Great Lash Waterproof Very Black and Vollum’ Express Waterproof in Brown, the brand got my respects. (They are really waterproof!) So basically, I only use their mascaras.

Small wand

The only thing I don’t like about their waterproofs is that its REALLY hard to remove. So I have to be extra careful when removing it so I won’t lose any lashes by plucking them accidentally. Ouch.

 I’d give this product a rating of 3.5/5 for waterproof mascara lovers.

So I thought I’d try and make my own version of Michelle Phan’s Rainbow Eyeshadow Look. I was pretty bored one night after a long tiring day, so I decided to take out the stress out of my system in a creative way. I do not intend to make this as an everyday makeup look. I was just simply at the heat of creativity to play with my colors. Please excuse my tired looking eyes and oily face on the photos too…

Rainbow eyed tired face :p

There’s nothing much I can do with my full eyebrows so I just used a brown mascara to keep it place neatly. (Maybelline Volum’ Express Waterproof)

So first I used a white eyeshadow base. I had to use a white base so that the bright pastel colors will pop out. (NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil)

Next, I applied the lightest color first which is Yellow. I applied it on the middle part of the lid. (Props 78 Palette #1)

Then, for the outer lid and some parts of the crease, I used the hotest pink color in the palette. (Props 78 Palette #1)

And to finish the rainbow, I used the darkest royal blue color from the same palette. (Props 78 Palette #1)

Then blend the three colors lightly to remove any harsh edges for a soft and light rainbow color look. (#222)

Highlighted the upper brow bone with my favorite highlighter. (Benefit High Beam)

Then, I  lined my upper lashes with a dark bluish-green eyeliner. (Styli-style Eye Pencil in Vienna)

And lastly, curled my lashes and applied a black mascara for stronger Feline eyes. (I know I should have opted for a regular curl but I just love long Feline lashes 😉

And then tadaaaa… My rainbow shadowed eyes for the summer! 🙂

I’ll try to take neat photos next time 🙂

I made swatches 2 months ago and forgot to load these up until tonight since I still couldn’t sleep. So here goes a swatch of four lipsticks for comparison.

SWATCHES 🙂

Pink Nouveau, Barbie Pink as always.

Milan Mode looks light here probably due to the flash. But its actually a deeper pink color.

See how dry Ruby Woo is. The application is really hard though…

Joyeous, gorgeous as always.

I’ll swatch and make reviews of the other shades next time. I never thought swatch-ing could be such a lucrative task! :p

Cheers for Lip Collections! :0

MAC’s Ruby Woo Matte lipstick is a bluish red matte. It’s definitely a must buy for those who wish to own a striking-red-devilish lips!  As usual it has the signature MAC scent.

MAC RUBY WOO MATTE LIPSTICK

Everyone knows that one MAC bullet lipstick costs $14.50 (Php 638.00) in the US. Here in the Philippines you can get a regular shade in all MAC stores for Php 950. But what most might not know is that it can actually be purchased from Duty Free for only Php700-ish. (So girls! What are you waiting for? Join me as I splurge on these babies :p)

Again as usual, everyone, including me loves the creamy and long wearing formula of all MAC Lipsticks. Easy to put on. Like most say, it’s definitely worth the price. Just don’t pick out a color that would look terrible on you! :p On the other hand, this specific matte shade is just a little bit more dry compared to the regular kinds.

Ok so anyway, not  much can be said to describe the wonderful unique color of a MAC bullet lipstick so here goes the swatch 🙂

MAC Ruby Woo Matte

I really like how I was able to shape-up my lips with this vividly-opaque-red matte! Two words: FULL LIPS! :p

For me, the application for this specific shade  requires precision and patience! haha! It’s matte formula tends to be dry when applied on bare lips. But you’d be really amazed on how long it stays on your lips even after a long day of eating! (Yes! tried and tested – even with ramen! hehe)

As you can see, it gives out a powerful red color although it tends to look a bit dry. Which is why I tried it on with a plain lipgloss. I think I used the Pout Plump Gloss on this on-lip swatch. Look how scary-red my lips were! It actually reminded me of the evil antagonist from the movie 101 Dalmatians! Cruela DeVil! :))

SCARY RED! Imagine a pair of vampire teeth behind those alluring redness! Yikes!

Go to your nearest MAC store and try a few shades! 😉

MAC’s Pink Nouveau Satin lipstick is a bright pink or rather a BARBIE PINK shade. Wear this shade whenever you feel like being playful. Its gorgeous pink opaque color will surely bring out the Barbie in you!As usual it has the signature MAC scent.

MAC’s Milan Mode Lustre lipstick is a sheer deep pink with multidimensional pearl (Mac Website), that is actually a pretty color if you’re aiming for a glam girly look. I think this shade favors those fair skin ladies like me :p As usual it has the signature MAC scent.

This pretty pink lipstick shade is every sweet girls must have. Ehem yes, that’s why I have’m :p

CHANEL Rouge Allure Limited Edition

This limited edition shade, Joyeous, is actually a sheer light barbie pink in color. It’s elegant and sophisticated pink shade is so light that only fair skinned girls can actually pull it off. 😉

Its got this pretty scent along  with it ever alluring packaging. I guess I just liked it because of its sleek click open case design..in GOLD! I love gold you see… Well, not my favorite product but its pretty decent..or rather Fabulous?  As you can see, the logo CHANEL is etched on the product itself.

Joyeous Swatch (pretty right?)

One Rouge Allure costs $32.00 (Php 1400.00) but of course here in the PH it costs even more! Anyway, I got mine at Duty Free so I think I only shelled out Php1200. Delicieuse, Arden and Mythic is on my next haul-list 🙂 (yeah yeah boring shades, so what?! I love’m)

On lip swatch Joyeous

I actually wore this on my graduation day! See  the photo below 🙂
