Review: Ever Bilena Liquid Lipstick

Hi there! I'm back with a new found love. I don't think I feature a lot of lipstick here though I have a lot. And in that case of course, I never had a liquid lipstick review. As makeup enthusiast, we just need to keep on trying and reviewing new products in the market, right?

So I got here an Ever Bilena Liquid Lipstick in the shade Pink Pearl. I have used their matte ones before but the lips and the lipstick easily dries. It's a great thing that EB came up with a liquid lipstick that gives a cream finish and can be matte by blotting with a tissue paper. 

The greater part is they retail for P 180.

Net weight: 5ml

The packaging is consist of a white plastic twist cap tube with a doe-foo applicator.

The product is indeed pigmented. It stays for long hours even after drinking or eating. So is it transfer proof? No. You have to let it dry or blot first. I believe the staining power is excellent.

The product glides smoothly on the lips  and you can apply it even without moisturizing. 

Are these worth buying? Yes. I'm already planning to purchase the other 5 shades.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

The search for a long wearing makeup never stops. There are maybe hundreds of brands to choose from but only few can provide that amazing color pay off without fallout and that doubles as base too. Is it really a great product for 24 hours? Of course it is not recommendable to allow makeup to sit on the face for a day. I guess it's meant to last for 24 hours.

The Maybelline tattoo eye shadow is not the new thing in the makeup market. Despite the reviews and the great hype for years already, it was just few months ago that I purchased one.  First, I have been used to eye powders for too long. Lastly, if I have to make it pigmented I will just apply an eye primer or eye pencil as base.

Here is what Maybelline says about their product:
“Dare to wear 24HR shadow.
• Ink technology creates 24HR wear shadow for our most intense, long-lasting color saturation
• Cream formula glides on without creasing and keeps color vibrant
• Ophthalmologist-tested.  Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers”

This cream-to-gel mixture makes it easier to apply. You can use your fingers in applying the product.
No fall outs! :)


Field work is a plain thing to me now. I go to places to inspect septic tanks/treatment plants and it's not a walk in park wherein I won't sweat. A minute outside is like baking yourself in a 50 degree Celsius heat. And to make one step forward is a major sweating event. My makeup has to sit well on my face. If you notice, my eye makeup featuring the Maybelline tattoo eyeshadow gives that vibrant color all throughout the day.

This is a great purchase. I think I'll buy some more of these. So yeah, a big hype for this product.

Review: Maybelline Hypersharp

For some, eyeliners are essential for creating that dramatic eye look. As for me, I love to do a thick sharp line until I got a comment from a friend of mine that I overdo this whole fashion and makeup thing. Okay, so he doesn't like girls with a pageant makeup and killer heels and I’m so affected - it breaks my heart. haha 

Point taken. For a makeup lover, it’s a natural thing to put on that great makeup even if I’m only to grab a few items from the market. I agree that it’s too much for simple activities but it’s also another way of putting your makeup for a road test. He wouldn't understand of course but I understand that he has his preferences.

The goal now is to lessen products a little bit. So I started opting for an eyeliner that will create precise wings. Maybelline provided the answer with its Hypersharp Wing Liquid Liner in 0.5g.

Long Lasting and Waterproof

I love this eyeliner. The super fine felt tip can do from thin to think lines. Plus it is well pigmented and can be intensified by few more swipes. 

Does it last all day? Yes. The staying power is quite impressive. It sets immediately, transfer proof, does not fade and waterproof. However, it tends to flake when you rub your eyes. One time I fell asleep with my head bowed leaning on the car window. When I woke up, the wings of the eyeliner are almost smudged and gone. 

I bought this for sale. If i remember it right, it cost 299 pesos. This could lasts you 4 months.

Do I recommend this eyeliner? Yes. It's definitely worth the buy.

Review: Loreal True Match Foundation

L'Oreal released their reformulated True Match foundation. Of course, we've heard a lot of hypes on original True Match Foundation so expectation for the reformulated one is kinda greater. 

This True Match foundation is said to contain 5 unique micro-pigments which are specifically designed to match Asian skin tones and hide imperfections.

The foundation comes in a squarish glass bottle with a pump.
The two (2) shades that I got are N3 Nude Vanilla and G3. G(golden)

First and foremost, I want to inform you that this foundation has shimmers. It's not too much, just enough to give you a dewy look when skin is dry and under cold conditions; and sweaty when oily and humid. It's not everyday that you get good cold office conditions. If you commute a lot and you travel by series of Jeepneys and full packed train then I would say this will upset you.

There was this one time, when I went out to conduct site inspection. One of my technicians told me that I'm all sweaty when I'm not. I went to check and realized that this whole glitter/shimmer thing is emphasizing all the oils on my face. 

Okay. So I got two foundations that I cannot use when I'm out on the field. What I do is to apply them around my eye circles and tap with powder foundation. I don't apply on the T-zone area of my face as I look like a living grease.

The coverage is lightweight and very nice but you do have to powder set it.

I believe this foundation will work best under good weather conditions or air conditioned! hahaha Do I like the product? Yes with reservations. :)

2016 Starter Haul ♥

I actually bought the items below last month. Anyway, I'm looking for products that are kind of sweat proof and good under extreme conditions. From my previous post, I mentioned that I do field work now. Most of the time, I get all sweaty from the insufficient ventilation in sewage treatment facilities. It's definitely hot.

The products I bought are from Maybelline and Loreal. Loreal released their new liquid foundation and so I bought two shades to test whether they will work great on me or not. 

On the other hand, I have been using Maybelline powder foundation for months now. I realized, during field work, my face easily becomes oily. Right now, I'm thinking if I'll try another brand.

I'll do in-depth reviews on the products. :) See you soon

Hello February 2016!

I know I have been away for too long. It's not unusual. Every year I say the same thing (hahaha :P) Well, you know how life can be tougher than usual right?

Let me start this year with a little of what I did. And yes, it's not really something to know, but this will give you an idea why I opt for a different fashion now.

I first worked for Emerson and transferred to a waste water company. That is from sleepless nights to overflowing human waste. No. I don't clean comfort rooms. I design treatment for any types of waste water and that would mean a dirty job literally. The thing is, Field work is making my hair "malagkit" and skin darker. And i'm getting these breakout from all the dirt. Lastly, I can't use my heels.

Apparently, this year is a year of blowing my mind with the kinetics of microbes - that's actually fine but the part where I can't wear all those cute dress and curl my hair isn't.

So follow me as I engineer waste water in style. <3

Review: Suesh Corrector

Not everybody is fond of using corrector everyday. Let the foundation and concealer do the job right? But what if you got this extreme redness happening all over your face or perhaps you got that dark eye bags you have to reduce? As for me, I apply corrector during my breakout days. And yes! I'm putting a lot of makeup on my face. 

Well, if you are to grab some corrector, you might want to try Suesh's corrector. They're handy plus affordable. As far as I can remember, they are sold for a P100. To begin with, let's start with the green corrector. What is it for? The color green neutralizes red. When you are under attack by pimples and they look like volcanoes waiting to erupt, you might want to cover them especially in an occasion. It is okay of course not to wear anything at home. Just in case you have to, see how these green corrector lessen the redness. 

Suesh's corrector

I have this zit that wants to break free and be famous. What I do to lessen the look is apply the green concealer. It will not totally hide or cover it but it will surely lessen the redness.

The orange corrector, on the other hand, is use to correct dark circles. The color orange or peach is the opposite of the blue on the color wheel that is why it balances each other. 

For medium complexion, it is best to use salmon corrector or light orange-pink. The orange corrector will work best with those with darker skin tones. Hopefully, i'll be able to find a light-orange or pink corrector to suit my skin color.

Do you see the difference? I do look more awake with all the corrector in placed.

Rating: 4/5
