My NEUTRAL look 

Oh how I’ve missed writing , been busy with my career as franchising consultant 🙂  but here I am again sharing with you cheap products which I highly recommend.   

Most are bought Online. download shopee app if you haven’t already. Tons of good finds there. 

  1. Octard cream foundation (online) –  php450
  2. Makeup revolution iconic matte palette (online) – php 500 
  3. Beauty treats blush (online)   – php299 
  4. Eyebrow pencil from Greenhills – php 150 
  5. Eyebrow mascara – Nichido php 250
  6. Concealer pen from Greenhills – php 200 
  7. Milani lip liner in nude (online) – php 150 

OCTARD  – is recommended for oily skin,  that is why I put tons of moisturizer before applying this since I have dry skin. It tends to cake up for dry skin so be sure to moisturize. 

MAKEUP REVOLUTION – for the price, I’d say this is a good. It is quite powdery but pigmentation is very decent. A good palette for beginners.

BEAUTY TREATS  – such a good blush palette, very versatile,  easy to use  for different look.  

MASCARA – I like this better than the elf mascara. 

CONCEALER PEN – i use this to clean the edges around my bow,  very easy to use since you can sharpen it to get the finest line.4

EYEBROW PENCIL – not to creamy which I like,  means it won’t rub off easily.

Underrated Products  

hello everyone, have you guys heard of OCTARD?  REIGN?   

for today,  I decided to make review of these products mentioned  but first let me take a selfie 😂

I love my look for today and I love how long it stayed. just ignore my uneven brows. LOLS 

products used. 

Reign Velvet primer 

Octard  Shade 41  (S41) 

Beauty treats matte blush 

Faceshop eyebrow pencil #3 

elf treat and tame 

Nyx prague 

LITERALLY those are the only products I used. NO POWDER AT ALL.   

The regin velvet primer – isnt bad for the price,  I got this for only Php 100. the texture  is comparable to an OINTMENT, It is clear and  somewhat jelly, it glides easily and has velvety finish.  

REIGN beauty

Octard –  this pot could last a very long time.a little does go a long way. you know the amount of primer we use?  it is basically the  same  amount you will ever need. 

however , I will tell you right off the bat  this is kinda hard to blend because of its creaminess.. so always put primer or moisturizer first to  blend it easily ,  use sponge or beauty blender instead  to evenout the product distribution.  This always give me the perfect flawless coverage…

Meiko – Octard  

time check : 

 930am –  took that photo 

5pm  –   still looking fresh 

7pm –  there was a little oiliness going on, but the foundation is still there 🙂   

so this completes my Mini review. 🙂  

let me know your thoughts about this  if you have tried them 🙂

when in Dollar Store ( ph)

Hello lovely ladies, 
I wanted to share with you these fab finds from the DOLLAR STORE   (greenfields pavillion mall)

1. Beauty treats matte blush Palette (php 199)
2. klean color foundation (php99 )
3. velvet gloss lip  color (php 99)
4.hair  velcro (php20)

review : 

BEAUTY TREATS MATTE BLUSHES
these are so pigmented. it is definitely worth buying.  the original price cost php 299,  but mine was discounted because the lid is kinda broken, but hey, php 100 discount is still not bad,  it is just a lid anyway.

When I first applied it,  i was like “whoah! too much,  too much.. LOL” And i had to blend it several times. good thing these are blendable..

the color variation is very versatile.
the longevity is Ok.  it lasted for about 5 hours without re-applying.. 

KLEAN COLOR FOUNDATION

image

I chose the lightest shade available  rosey beige –  this one has a pink undertone to it.
the color selection is from light to dark skin tone.
when you apply it,  its kinda liquidy.
doesn’t last very long but it keeps the skin looking fresh because it feels very hydrating on the face.
the coverage is LIGHT ,  very good during the summer time,  it doesn’t cake up or cling on to dry patches..
I’d give this one a 6 out of 10 stars.
It has a pump. glass bottle. 30ml and has spf 20
it lasted for only 4 hours, given the fact that I was inside the mall,  I didn’t sweat but still it didn’t last very long.
verdict : for PHP 99  pesos,  i’d say go for it. 🙂

VELVET GLOSS

image

This is the only thing that disappointed me.
Its not velvet. its not gloss.
ITS MATTE. PURE MATTE. 
now that is false advertising.
I was looking for something glossy  so i was disappointed to find out this isn’t what im looking for.
the product isn’t that bad,  id still wear it,  use it when i feel like it,  color is very vibrant, lasted for 5 to 6 hours.
a good matte lipstick if you are into matte…. 
again,  only disappointed by the fact i was deceived by flase claim.

The last but not the least is the php 20 hair velcro that you use to get you baby bangs away from your face.
I have been looking for this online and they all cost php100+ ,  and I find that very expensive and offensive for a little  velcro. so i was really happy to have found this.

check out the DOLLAR STORE IN GREENFIELDS MANDALUYONG if you are in the area,  they have a lot of good stuff there. 

til next..
