It had been about two weeks since I have bought my new domain. I am thrilled that some of my old blog’s followers are already reading this new blog. I hope a lot of them finds this so that they won’t miss any of my posts. 😀
I feel like I have so little time making new posts during weekends, and I am feeling sad about that. I am almost always tired, and I feel like I am cramming just to prepare my posts. I wish I have more time doing this, because I am really happy blogging. This is something that I love, and it is ME. I am not doing something that I am forcing myself to do. I failed to do my weekly basket last week, anyway, enough babbling, and let us now jump into it.
For face bases, I want to use my Ever Bilena Advance BB Cream Whitening in Oriental, and for concealer, Naturactor Cover Face Concealer #151.
The Ever Bilena Advance BB Cream Whitening is surprisingly good for only Php 195, and I bought it from Watsons. It does not make my face oily and it does not melt for almost the whole day. I have worn this inside our air-conditioned office, and haven’t really tested it out under the sun. Regardless, some other BB Creams or foundations still melt even when I am inside the office. As always, I set it with powder. The shade Oriental has a yellow undertone that suits most Filipina or Asian women, so I love that it matches my skin perfectly! The Naturactor Cover Face Concealer #151 became popular because of its outstanding coverage! I swear that it is, and it applies smoothly. It is best to use the finger to blend and melt the product. It can be worn all over the face as foundation, but I find that it works best as concealer for me. I don’t really want full coverage on a daily basis. I bought this for Php 650, from ebay. It can be bought from online sellers, such as Digital Traincase.
Next are Powders. I am still testing out Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Powder. This costs only Php 169, and I bought it from Landmark. I think the quality is comparable to Rimmel Stay Matte powder in terms of how finely milled it is.
Next is my NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny. This bronzer applies smoothly, and it does not appear too dark. It can warm up the face without looking muddy. A lot of youtubers and bloggers like this. I bought this from a blog sale, and I don’t think this is locally available. Hopefully, this will soon be on our local counters too! For my blush, I am going to wear theBalm Frat Boy. This is a peachy pink blush, though it shows pinker on my swatch. I promise that I will have a better camera soon! I love how this blush applies smoothly and it lasts for a long time! This costs Php 850 in Beauty Bars, but I got this for Php 750 from Digital Traincase. I love theBalm! 😀
Next are Mascaras. I picked two from my collection. They are the Maybelline Long Extreme Stilleto and Clinique Lash Power Volumizing Mascara.
The Maybelline Long Extreme Stilleto came from my October BDJ Box. The wand works well in separating my lashes, and adding volume, but the formula is drier than most of my mascaras. The Clinique Lash Power Volumizing Mascara is a great mascara too. It is not waterproof but the staying power is amazing! The tiny wand helps in applying the mascara both in the upper and lower lashes. I bought this from Hongkong, and it costs about Php 1000+. 🙂
For the eyes, I hope to wear my Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze more. I usually don’t have time wearing eyeshadows but this can work alone and so easy to swipe on the eyes.
This cream eyeshadow is starting to dry up, but the color is super wearable! It stays all day. It is best to be removed using oil- based makeup removers. I bought this a long time ago from Multiply from Stuff in Style. This store now sells on eBay and Facebook.
The last items are the lipsticks. I am going to wear my Wet N Wild Megalast Lip Color in Pinkerbell and Sandstorm.
I bought them from nyxwholesaleph.com as pre-orders, and they only cost Php 115 each. It is the cheapest store that sells this locally, that I know. I already have several of these lipsticks, and I love all of them. I love matte lipsticks, and they surely last a long time. They are also highly pigmented. I have reviewed some of the colors here.
Those are all the products on my week’s basket. What products have you tried?
Hope you had/have a great weekend!
