Review: Nichido Press Powder

10:41:00 PM

Happy Friday everyone! Today, I'll be reviewing Nichido Pressed Powder. For the past few days, I've been testing out different foundations. Some of them are not long-lasting. But of course powders can do the trick. They go directly on top of your foundation to maximize longevity. They are designed to set and mattify makeup so I went out to look for a product that will, too, override my oily skin. So last week, I bought the Nichido pressed powder.

According to the sales lady, this is a good oil control product. For 100 pesos, it's definitely worth a try. However, after 2-3 hours, the powder slides off my T-zone. And No, I'm not willing to blot every now and then. 

It  comes in a sturdy blue sleek compact with a huge mirror. The box description goes,  "A fine textured, matte finish pressed powder that makes your skin looks smooth, natural and flawless. Perfect for touch-ups."

When I swatched this powder, I was amazed of its pigmentation. It provides a matte finish that is good with foundations that are dewy. Though coverage is really nice, I find it chalky and cannot control oil. Nakaka enhance pa ng eyebags.

Sadly, as opposed to those who gave this product a hype, I don't like it.

Review: Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain

11:59:00 PM

The first time I saw this lip product, I instantly assumed that it's a liquid lipstick. So yes, the beautiful packaging made me skip the reading part. 

Today I'll be reviewing Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in shade 010 LA Exclusive. The Moisture stain promises the hydration of a balm, shininess of a gloss and pigmentation of a stain. I love all the three promises, but the last one I doubt. 

I've read a lot of great hypes for this product so I grabbed one. Actually, it was not something that you will love at first swatch. Parang sayang pera. And I thought that I got the wrong shade for the nth time. The pigmentation isn't intense and I find the staining power minimal. However, after months of using it, I found it great for daily wear. The light color, moisture and hydration is all there. But if you are the type that is after that Pak-na-pak look. This won't work for you.

I use this baby only when I do super smokey eyes. It tones down the fierce look. Also, if i'm going out to pick up something in the market. 

It's really a good product if you want your lips to look hydrated. I bought it for P 250 instead of the original price that is P 625. If this on a regular price, i believe it is not worth buying.  XD

Net weight: 8 ml

Wide petal applicator.

I like the packaging and the hydration it gives. Do I love it? If they will keep selling this for P 250, then it will be worth it.

Review: Loreal True Match Lumi Foundation

9:12:00 PM

Now that I'm considering getting married (dati nde ko feel XD ), the search for best drugstore makeup begins!

Today's review is on Loreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup SPF 20. I stumbled upon this product a couple of times already when I google-d "best drugstore foundations". And based on some reviews, this product is said to have a flawless coverage with glow. With this, I opted for one. Anyway, if you are wondering where I got my foundation, I bought it from Chedelyn's store located in Pop Culture Trinoma.

The foundation the sales lady gave me is W5 Sand Beige that I found to be darker than my actual shade. So I checked online for the suitable shade for me.  And because I have green veins, I fall under the category of warm. I should be around W3 or W4.

What I like about the product is that it comes with a sturdy glass bottle with pump. Pwede mabagsak XD And you can get the right amount of product. To add, product weighs 30 ml. That's actually a lot.

The consistency of the product is liquid-y and easy to work with.

In terms of coverage, it is lightweight and cannot cover up minor imperfections. The finish is dewy and it looks healthy and natural on the skin. However, I believe it will work best for those with dry and flawless skin. 

I have been using this for a week now and sadly, I don't think this will be my bridal foundation. It was only after 2-3 hours that my T-zone became pretty oily and after 6 hours that it enhanced my already oily face (kahit sa pisngi ma-oil XD ).  So that's on my forehead, left and right cheek, and nose.

As the labels says luminous, it is meant to give that radiance look, but ang lakas maka langis. I also tried this with primer and set it with powder, still my face ended up greasy. Will I still use it? Yes, but only in air conditioned places.

Review: Revlon Photoready Cream Blush

9:43:00 PM

For someone with a huge square face, I'm not really into blushes. I prefer countouring my face than emphasizing my cheek bones. Blush and contour actually go hand in hand, but I don't want to go full makeup especially during field work. Sayang makeup.  

I got myself a cream blush from Revlon just because it's on sale. Got it for P 150. And though it's really cheap, I don't think it's a steal for the shade I got. hahah :( I don't swatch when I buy makeup. I simply pick up stuff so that explains a number of regrets.

Net weight: 12.4 grams

The shade is Pinch which is the lightest shade.It's super light that it barely show up. I believe it will stand out on pale skin and if you're looking for a more natural finish. My reason for picking it up is the shade or color of the product by the packaging. I assumed that it is a vibrant peachy color. Pati sa pagbili ng makeup, assumera pa rin ako. So ayan, regret. 

When it comes to the packaging, you'll find it un hygienic to dip your fingers. 

Lastly, the product is silicon based that means it is less likely to oxidise or change in color. Not only that, it fills up the imperfection of the skin creating smooth texture. The bad news is that it keeps not only the moisture of the face, it also keeps the dirt and bacteria.

Am I still using it? Yes. The product has a light shimmer so I use it to add glow on my skin. I haven't tried the other shades that are wearable so I won't say that won't purchase again.

Brow Pencil

Review: San San Brow Pencil

2:02:00 AM

Whenever I'm in a hurry, I skip a few routines such as foundation. Of all the routines, I believe one that should not be missed is fixing of brows. The brow is said to be the frame of the face. It gives a neat look  despite the bareness of the other parts of the face.

Is it easy? Everyone uses different ways of filling their brows - some uses powders and some uses solely pencil. As for me, I use pencil alone especially when I'm running late. I just brush off the excess product with a spoolie or a cotton bud.

Its cap is also a sharpener.

Before I became a busy person, I was a student with a lot of time to polish my brows. Now that I work for more than 8 hours and has an early call time, I simply grab my San San pencil in Light brown.

What I love about this product is that it is affordable and yet pigmented. Well, why would you go for something expensive and just go through an immense volume of pollution and sweat? As a field engineer, it is challenging to maintain a full makeup. Also, it's not practical to apply pricey products that I'll just wipe off when I got all sweaty. 

With this product, I skip the part of filling my brows with powder. It's pigmented to the point that you can brush the excess product making it look more natural.

Shape your brow and underline the underside of your brow. It should be precise. Lightly line the top of your brows. Brush it with a spoolie! Or fill with brow powder. 

Brush it with a spoolie! Or fill with brow powder. 

That's if for my daily brow routine. :)
