♥ REVIEW: Careline Oil Control Blush-on

Hello there!

I am not really fond of blushes so one blush is enough for me. For my cheeks, I want them to look rosy so the shade that I am looking for in a blush is a rosy peach shade that gives me a subtle color just not to look flat. Since I am not really into blushes, I just go for a very affordable blush. I tried the brand Careline because they have a lot of blush shades to choose from plus their blushes have oil control. And yes, I have found the perfect blush for me from that brand. Right now, I am currently loving this Careline Oil Control Blush-on in the shade Rosy Cheek. The shade name is exactly the shade that I want. :)

Price: P90
Availability: Watsons and Department Stores

Description: Now Careline Single Blush-on is made better for a more Prettilicious you! Have a natural looking blush without the danger of oily skin ruining your day.

♥ REVIEW: Fashion 21 Aqualicious Lipstick

Hello there!

I am obsessed with lipsticks and I want to buy all the shades available in the market. But sad to say, not all of them will suit me. So, I need to buy lipsticks that suits my skin tone. Generally, I like natural shades and very dark red shades of lipsticks. I go for a natural shade when I want to look natural and for everyday use. I am a big fan of Miss Say (if you know her), and I saw, in one of her videos, that she was wearing this very beautiful shade and I just have to ask her what brand and shade it was because I love it. It was from Fashion 21 Aqualicious Lipstick line in the shade Little Mermaid. So, I went to Watsons and I was told that it was always out of stock. So, I thought this shade is indeed a very beautiful shade because it was the only shade that's always out of stock. Until, I finally bought one for myself and so here is my review on this product. :)

♥ REVIEW: San San Eyeliner Pen

Hello there!

Are you an eyeliner girl? And by eyeliner girl I mean, do you always put on eyeliner? I am not really an eyeliner girl, but I like how it changes my look whenever I put on eyeliner. So, maybe that makes me an eyeliner girl also? Lol! I am not making sense already. Anyway, the first eyeliner that I used and what my mom uses is an eyeliner pencil and when I started practicing doing my own makeup, I realized that it is hassle for me to use a pencil type because it smudges, it needs sharpener, and it always break. And then, there came an eyeliner that is in liquid form. I tried it also but my hands are too shaky so I end up always retouching my eyeliner because my two eyes don't match. And then, there came another type of eyeliner which is a pen type. I tried and it is perfect for my shaky hands and it is very convenient to use. I now have this San San Eyeliner Pen and this is the second eyeliner pen that I have tried.The first one is the Nyx Eyeliner Pen and I didn't like it. So, this time I am going to share my thoughts and opinions about the San San Eyeliner Pen. :)

♥ REVIEW: Shawill Hide The Blemish Concealer

Hello there!

When I do my full makeup for an occasion or whatnot, I really have to apply a concealer for my blemishes and especially for my dark under eye circles. What I am looking for in a concealer is that it should not settle on my fine lines and gives me a more flawless look. So I did a research for reviews on the many different concealers available in the market. I have tried a few and still haven't found the perfect concealer for me. But for the mean time, the concealer that I have been using is this Shawill Hide The Blemish Concealer. I discovered this product from Miss Say's Youtube channel and she said that it does a pretty good job so I decided to try it and hence this review. :)

♥ REVIEW: Fashion 21 Red Romance Lipstick

Hello there!

If you know me very well, my favorite color is pink. But when it comes to lipsticks, I want it to be really really dark red. Maybe because I want to look maldita. Hahaha! I have been searching for the perfect red lipstick that suits me and my personality and I did find one but unfortunately it is from Mac Cosmetics and we all know that Mac is a really expensive brand. I can't afford it so I tried lipsticks that can be found locally and sad to say they are not as red as I want them to be. All the red lipsticks that I have tried are bright which I don't like. Then, I came across the Red Romance line which is from Fashion 21 and the darkest red that I have found in that line is the shade Heartthrob. So, I am going to share with you my experience on using this product. :)

Price: P175

The products I use for my go-to makeup are easy to apply and give me a natural finish. For the brows, I am currently using Etude House Drawing Eyebrow. And now, I am going to share my thoughts and opinions about this product. :)

♥ REVIEW: ELF Eyebrow Treat and Tame

When I was just starting to practice putting makeup on myself, I really don't know how to do my eyebrows. I have thick eyebrows and I find it hard to shape and fill them in. So, I kept on practicing then until now and I can say that I have improved with the help of good eyebrow products. And because I have thick eyebrows, I need a brow mascara to set them in place. I am currently using ELF Eyebrow Treat and Tame and this is the only brow mascara that I have tried and used. So, I'm going to share my thoughts and opinions about this product after the jump. :)
