I will be posting the foundations that I am currently using, hopefully soon!

A masterpiece starts with a a well primed canvas which is why choosing a foundation for make up is essential.

Girls don’t want their faces to look shiny and oily nor too dry and cakey for a photo up! Every skin type has its own needs and a suitable product should be considered. Some have oily skins, dry ones or even a combination. So picking up a foundation is something one should carefully do. You have to consider a lot of things like “Do I need sheer, medium or full coverage?” or “Should I use a powder or liquid foundation” and most of all “Which shade fits my skin tone”?

So you see, buying a foundation isn’t just a trip to a mall. It isn’t buying the shade you like from your favorite brand and most of all, it isn’t just buying one that fits your budget! Everyone should know the concept of “Value and Cost.” An expensive, let alone an overpriced foundation, doesn’t it make it a better one for your skin. But of course, you shouldn’t also sacrifice your skin for cheap ones. You should find a product that will suit you. Take note. Everyone and every skin has different needs.

So, for  now I’ll be saying in advance that I’ll be sharing to you my experiences in using the following  foundations: The Body Shop All in 1 Base Foundation, Mac Studio Fix Powder and  Foundation, Revlon Photo Ready Foundation, Cinema Secrets Foundation, The Face Shop 2in1 Powder Foundation and Bare Escentuals Mineral Foundation! =)

Here’s a sneak peak on some of my foundations! ^__^

Stay tuned! And don’t miss out! ^^



It’s been almost a year since I’ve discovered the Revlon ColorStay Eye Pen. I was having an eyeliner-phase so I exhaustively tried and tried on different brands until I found the 03 Blackened Brown from the Revlon ColorStay Collection.

REVLON Color Stay Liquid Pen in 003

A liquid pen costs Php 575.00 from malls which is a bit pricey for an eyeliner by a mass-brand cosmetic, but the quality of this baby sure does redeem itself.

Stocking up for the rainy days 🙂

I like the color03 Blackened Brown. It isn’t too black nor browny. It’s actuallly a mix of both which makes it look like a soft black so you won’t look like an eyeliner-rockstar-addict. I’ve always had a bad hand when it comes to applying eyeliners which is why the liquid pen type makes it easy to use. Plus, it’s waterproof and it endures one’s oily face for a whole day. You don’t even have to worry when taking it off because you can easily wipe it off with a wet-ones towel or make up remover. I use this liquid eyeliner pen everyday. I’d say this is a perfection in a pen! 🙂

I would recommend this product for those who use eyeliners everyday. It’s a 4/5 for me.


Revlon Matte Lipsticks. This is the very first matte lipstick brand that I used, and I LIKE IT! 🙂 For a mass-brand lipstick, this one isn’t that  bad. Every application promises a full-matte-color finish. And this one doesn’t make my lips dry at all. I’m not sure in other girls’ cases but this definitely works for me. It’s the type of matte lipstick that can be used everyday. This one is actually my 3rd favorite matte lipstick brand.

Revlon Matte Lipsticks only cost Php 475 per tube on all Department Stores. Not bad, considering the good quality and finish of the product. I actually have finished 1 tube already and it lasted for about 6 months.

I’ve got the first four shades of the Matte Lipstick Collection in my dresser: 001 – Nude Attitude, 002 – Pink Pout, 003 – Mauve it Over, 004 – Pink About It

Swatch (001-004)

With Flash: 001 - 004


001 – NudeAttitude

(Basic Nude Color)

This shade is perfect Nude Color for a Smokey Look effect. I sometimes use this as a “lipliner” before I put on a light colored lipstick since it practically covers up the dark color around my lips. Plus, it somehow acts as a lip concealer.

Most of the time I mix it with other colors since it gives out a good lightening effect. It makes darker colors ( red, pink, orange) look lighter but still keeping the original deep shade. I often mix it with lipstick shades in the “Orange shade family” since it looks natural on me because of my fair skin tone.

002 – Pink Pout

(A little dark-Light Pink Color)

002 - Pink Pout

I’ve never been a pink lipstick fan (because it doesn’t seem to coordinate with my everyday look), but that doesn’t keep me from trying out playful lipstick colors.  Pink pout is a slightly deeper shade of the light pink color. It’s actually pretty cute.

003 – Mauve it Over

(Soft brick color, perfect for natural look)

003 - Mauve It Over

Now this shade is a savior when I  have to apply make-up in a hurry since this color compliments most looks. It is a type of mauve color that isn’t too strong. It’s actually a lighter version of a brick red shade and it makes your lips look naturally soft and healthy. Even my sister keeps on borrowing this one from my collection.

004 – Pink About It

(A deep Solid Pink Color)

004 - All About Pink

Now this deep pink shade can transform a fair skin-toned gal to a living Barbie. It’s just so bloody pinky and cute! Although I wouldn’t advise morenas to wear this color. This playful color will surely brighten up one’s look. Put on some Lipglass and viola! You’re a star! 😉
