FOTD: Too Faced Sweet Peach palette

Long time no post! My SephoraPH order arrived in less than 2 days so my Too Faced sweet peach palette  is now here. I was so excited for it since I was lemming for this for almost a year. I had the time to play with it yesterday and took too many photos so I thought I’d create a post here. I know my blog hasn’t been active for quite a while. So sorry but I will try to be more active!

I went to a food tasting yesterday and did a light everyday peach eye look and actually got a compliment from the person who took my order at Serenitea. But for the photos below, I took the time to upgrade the look and popped on some false lashes for photography purposes. Sayang naman ang makeup ko.

Face:

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea in Light Medium Neutral

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Light Sand (undereye) and Light Medium

Hourglass Blush in Diffused Light

Nyx Baked Blush in Ignite (apples of the cheeks)

Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow Palette for highlight and a little bit of contour

Eyes:

Nars Pro Prime Eye primer

Too Faced Sweet peach palette

Benefit ka-brow! eyebrow cream cel 04

Benefit Gimme Brow brow gel 03

MAC Fluidline Gel in Past twilight

Red Cherry DW lashes

A little more detail on how I did my eyes: 

After priming my eyes, I topped my lids with White Peach to remove the tackiness of the primer. I then used Peaches n Cream on my crease then added Georgia on top and mixed the two on my crease. Make sure to blend very well. On the lid, I used Just Peachy and topped it with Luscious on the center of the lid.  I used a combination of Tempting and Peach Pit to define my outer V. Then, I went back to my crease and used Candied Peach to give it a more peachy look. I popped Nectar on my inner corner and dragged it up to give me a more wide-eyed look. I used a brown liner and also smudged Peach Pit on my lower lashline. I lined my upper lashline with a dark brown gel liner and popped on some falsies from Red Cherry lashes in DW.

My MAC Lip Pencil Collection (Review and Swatches)

I’ve been on a lip pencil spree for the past 3 months already. I don’t even remember how this started because if I remember it correctly, I am not interested in lip pencils before. I find them useless. I guess watching beauty bloggers like Viviana and Lily changed my mind. They’ve been talking about MAC lip pencils for the past months and it got me interested in it again.

My first MAC lip pencil was Cherry which I got 2 years ago? I bought it together with MAC Red here in SM Aura. I thought I needed a red lip pencil to prevent my red lipsticks from bleeding. I also tried NYX lip pencils a few weeks back but didn’t like them because they were too dry. I thought, that’s it, I’m so done with these lip pencils.

Happy Skin Prints Made Pretty Lippies (Review and Swatches)

Hello everyone. I know, I know. I have not posted for 6 months. I was lazy and all because all I want to do during my idle time is sleep and lay in bed. Work has been stressing me out. It hasn’t improved but I am coping. Oh well.

Anyway, let’s get down to business. I am here with a new post about Happy Skin. It’s been a while since I last talked about their products on my blog.  If you’re a Happy Skin fan, by now, you should know that they released a matte version of their moisturizing lippie. The shades that I have here are from their tie up with Plains and Prints. Plains and Prints also release a clothing line with this collection.  Continue reading Happy Skin Prints Made Pretty Lippies (Review and Swatches)

Topshop Beauty Haul (First Impression and Swatches)

Cover-image

I’ve always seen Topshop beauty in the  vlogs of UK beauty bloggers. So imagine my excitement when I saw the beauty section of Topshop when I visited Melbourne. It was the start of fashion week so they had 20% promo on all regular items from 5pm – 10pm that day. Yes!

Eyes – Nude Eye Contour in Naked (18 AUD)

Topshop Beauty haul

It’s Topshop’s version of a MAC paintpot but this is smaller. Paintpot has 0.17 oz and this one only has 0.7 oz.  I bought this because I thought it looked very similar to Groundwork. But looking at swatches online, Groundwork is definitely darker and warmer.   Continue reading Topshop Beauty Haul (First Impression and Swatches)

Travel Beauty Essentials (Winter edition)

Wassup, I am back with another post! I recently went on a trip to Melbourne and I thought of doing a blogpost of what makeup I’d bring there. But then things got crazy so I wasn’t able to make the post. So now that I am back, I am able to gather my thoughts and do a post that will hopefully be helpful to travellers.

I was in Melbourne for 9 days, it was near the end of winter. Cold, but not snowing. So I opted for dewy foundations/tinted moisturizer and decided to leave the powder behind. I made sure I had all lip color options, a pink, a red, a nude. As much as possible, I stayed away for mattes because it will dry my lips more. I brought a gloss because I know it will save me in the cold weather. I had two cheek options too- one cream and one powder. I brought cream shadow sticks and an eyeshadow palette. As for brushes, I brought a buffing brush, a blush brush, stippling brush and 2 eye brushes. I was able to fit everything in 3 pouches – that include skincare, body care and makeup. I was quite impressed with my packing skills if I may say.

In love with Colourpop (Review and Swatches)

I first heard of Colourpop through CoffeebreakwithDani and KathleenLights. I saw videos of them swatching their eyeshadows that only cost 5 USD each. Like come on? Really that cheap?! But then I have a lot of eyeshadow palettes so I forgot all about it until I’ve seen videos of them doing swatches of the “lippie stix” which is CP’s version of a lipstick. Again, my weakness is lipsticks so I was curious and bought a few of their eyeshadows and lippie stix from Prettymoody’s IG account. Got the eyeshadow and lippie stix for 350 pesos each. As you can see in the photo, one of the eyeshadows was broken when I got it. Colourpop’s formulation is known to be a very soft, gel-like powder. It feels like cream when you touch it and sets as powder on the lids.  So I just had to press down the crumbs and cracks and they’re sort of back to the original shape.

The lippie stix costs 5USD each too. If you think about it, it’s not really that cheap because it only has 1g of product. MAC has 3.4g. However, if you’re the type who has a lot of lipsticks in your rotation, then you’re good. You won’t be able to finish a tube anyway. 10890877_1584534218456888_1241835932_n

Mac Rebel Dupe

DSC05706

I recently acquired Happy Skin’s Girls Night Out Lippie and when I wore it for the first time, I knew I had a similar shade in my stash. I’ve professed my love for MAC’s Rebel several times in my blog. Evidence 1 and 2. And I think Girls Night Out
 is a local dupe for it.

swatches

Girls Night Out is a little glossier because Rebel is a satin which is almost matte. In the photo below, I am wearing both lipsticks. Can you even tell the difference?

I am actually wearing Rebel on left side, and Girls Night Out on the right. But seriously, I couldn’t even tell the difference.  MAC is locally priced at 1,000 pesos and Happy Skin is almost half the price at 549 pesos. If you’re on a budget, I say go with Happy Skin!
