Yesterday I had a chance of using some of the products that I recently hauled. So, I decided to update my ‘What’s on my face’ segment. And I will also review some new products.
These are the products I used yesterday.
Let’s start with face products.
L’Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
You all know that L’Oreal True Match is one of my favorite foundations. 2 weeks ago I picked up 2 bottles when I found out that it has new packaging. I wanted to know the difference between the old packaging and the new packaging when it comes to the formulation.
In the old formulation my shade is N40. This one in the new packaging I picked up the shade G2 Gold Porcelain. The shade is exactly like my N40. But I noticed that the consistency is different. In the old packaging the consistency is thicker, this one in the new packaging it is more ‘liquidy’. A thinner consistency. But the finish is exactly the same. It is also easy to blend and medium to full coverage. Love it just the same.
Revlon Age Defying Concealer
I have been using this for like a year now (in fact this is my second tube already). I love this concealer. It is thick and very creamy and full coverage. I use this to conceal dark spots and any imperfection on my face. I use this also under my eyes.
This is available locally. I picked this up in Watson’s
Concealer for brightening
Holika Holika Cover & Hiding Liquid Concealer
I’ve had this since last year and this is one of the concealers that I rotate with my other concealers. I specifically use this under my eyes for brightening
This is a Korean brand and I got this in Watson’s
BYS Contour Stick
This is my third time to use this product. It’s also one of the products that I hauled recently.
I apply this on my cheek bones, side of my nose, forehead, my temple and under my jawline
My other contour sticks (Clinique Chubby Sculpting Stick and Sonia Kashuk Contour Stick) are both fat sticks. This one is way thinner therefore you get a precise line when you apply it. So, you get a sharp contour. I like this for that. The shade is okay, too. It doesn’t look muddy
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multicolor in Marinière No. 02
I’ve had this ever since Chanel came out with their Les Beiges collection. Love this. It is light and gives you a nice glow.
I apply this on the areas where I contoured. And also anywhere on my face where I want to look sun kissed.
Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre. Natural Finish Loose Powder in 20 Clair Translucent
I used this to set my under eye concealer and to set my t zone area. I normally don’t set my entire face (only the t zone area) ’cause I have dry skin and I want to look glowy and dewy.
Stila Convertible Color in Camellia
This is a cream blush. I love using cream blush ’cause it looks natural.
BYS Foundation Primer
This is one of the products that I recently hauled. This is my third time to use this. I apply my face primer before applying my foundation.
When I was at the BYS counter (in Watson’s) I swatched this. And the reason why I picked it up is because it has a cilicone-y finish. Smooth and dry (but hydrating).
So far I like this. My foundation blends seamlessly and it has an air brush look finish.
OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Pasadena
Among all the liquid lipsticks I have tried OFRA liquid lipstick is the best. I haven’t tried the MAC liquid lipstick yet.
I like the color range of OFRA. It dries matte but moisturizing and doesn’t dry up my lips
NARS Pro Prime
By the looks of it you can see that this product is well loved. I’ve had this since mid last year and this is one of my eye primers that I rotate.
Actually this is for the face to cover lines and pores but I also use it on my eyes.
Eye Make Up Palette
Morphe Eye Make Up Palette in 12NB
This palette arrived a week ago. I ordered this online. Morphe products is available online and at their store in 616 S. Victory Blvd. Burbank, CA. It’s not available in Sephora, ULTA or any drugstores.
Morphe started with make up brushes until they branch out to make ups. It’s cheap but very good.
This is my second time to use this particular palette (I have 3 other Morphe eye make up palettes and 1 blush palette). And I love it. I love the shades in this palette.
Morphe eye make up is similar to Make Up Geek. It is buttery, pigmented and easy to blend. The color pay off is on point.
Catrice Smokey Eyes Pencil
I’ve been using this for over a year now. You all know that Catrice is one of my favorite drugstore brands (available in Watson’s).
This is a good dupe for Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Pencil. I like that it has a small brush at the other tip for blending.
This is a soft pencil and very easy to blend.
L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper
I picked this up in the Duty Free in Changi Airport in Singapore on our way back home from Maldives last December. I forgot to include this in my haul.
This is not available in Manila.
I’ve used this ever since I had this. And I love it. This is better than Maybelline Brow Drama. Only because the brush is smaller. Maybelline’s Brow Drama has a big brush which is harder to use.
Eye of Horus Ultimate Brow Define – Nile in Medium/Dark
I have been using this since last year. And the only thing I can say is for me this is better than Anastacia Brow Wiz.
Available in Landmark and Watson’s
Lancome Mascara is one of the best Mascaras in the history of Mascara. That’s all I can say.
Review on the MAC Artist brush:
First week of December, if you remember, I bought some make up brushes in MAC. I think it’s called artist brush (I’m not sure. Please don’t quote me on this). This is how it looks like.
I finally used the bigger brush. I used it as a foundation blush. Altho’ you can use it as blush brush, highlighter brush, etc.
These brushes comes in 3 sizes and the last time I went to MAC (Rustan’s Ayala) they have the 3 sizes in stock already.
And I super love it. I have been using this non stop.
Here’s the finish look.
