REVIEW: L.A Matte Lipsticks

9:35:00 PM

L.A GIRL LIPSTICK (P99). Before i went home to my province (Zambales), i decided to get two more lipsticks from L.A Girl. I know they are still on sale and it is the last week. So here i bought the shades of Pink Perfection and Crimson respectively.




Pink Perfection


Crimson





SWATCH IT!

Add on: Brandy

From Left: Pink Perfection, Crimson and Brandy

As you can see, crimson appears to be coral in the packaging. After application, it's a deep pink. I think i like it better than the rest of the l.a lippies that i have. 
  • As mentioned in my recent lipstick review, i really love the color. It is very pigmented.
  • Also, it is cheap for P99 which is sale from P219.
For the cons please check out my first post.

REVIEW: L.A Girl PRO concealer

11:07:00 PM

If you are looking for a drugstore concealer that works wonder, then here is a good deal - The L.A Girl PRO concealer. Hooray! 

This concealer is greatly hyped by hundreds of beauty bloggers and gurus, maybe thousands as more people discovers the talent of the said product. They even claimed it's a great dupe for MAC Pro Long wear concealer.

Well girls, the hype is real.

So what's special about L.A girl pro? Besides being long-wearing, creamy and effective in concealing, it is affordable. In 2012, I paid a discounted price of P 224.25. Now, I believe you can get it online for P 200. It's definitely a steal.

There are so many shades to choose from and remember that in choosing your shade, it should be half shade  lighter than your complexion and your foundation. Also take note that this concealer is buildable and can go from sheer to full coverage.





The concealer weighs 8 grams and comes in a squeeze-tube with brush applicator.

LA Girl says, Crease-resistant, opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture. The long-wearing formula camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections. Provides complete, natural-looking coverage,evens skin tone, covers dark circles and minimizes fine lines around the eyes.
This blendable and buildable formula provides the ultimate, customizable coverage. This must-have concealer includes a soft brush-tip for easy application.
  • It has its own brush. 
  • Creamy
  • Covers dark circles
  • It somehow concealed my pimple scars. I tried it to other ladies and it worked! :) Well, I do like it. I cannot say it's purely effective but at least it works roughly around 80% +.
  • My shade is not pure beige so expect that it did not work 100% on "me".
  • If not sale, this 8-gram baby is P 299.
  • Be careful with squeezing, the product gives a lot of amount if not controlled.


Have you tried this concealer before?

REVIEW: L.A Girl Matte

10:47:00 PM

Another product i bought from L.A Girl cosmetic line is their matte lipstick. At first, i thought that the shade was not indicated. All i can read from the label is "LIPM328 Matte Brandy" followed by the bar code. When i looked at my receipt, it says "LA Girl lipstick Matte Purple Pas" (But I don't think it is purple. It is more of a brownish red). So I bought two more, and from there i observed and found that the shade was really the one after the lip code. XD





SHADE: BRANDY

  • Great pigmented color. You could have a matte colored lips in few swipes.
  • Cheap matte lipstick for P99! Well i got it for sale XD lucky me (originally P219).
  • Looks great with people from fair to white complexion
  • Packaging is bad. You should be very careful in opening the cap or you'll end up with a deformed lipstick.
  • Staying is power is not so great. I think, i do retouching every 3-4 hours.
P99.00

NOTE: Lipstick sale is until this week only.XD

REVIEW: L.A Girl Perfecting Liquid Makeup

8:06:00 PM

L.A Girl Perfecting Liquid Makeup (P231). I wanted to try products from L.A Girl Cosmetic line so i bought the Perfecting Liquid Make Up in Natural. As stated in the cover, it is oil free with vitamins C & E - which is great for oily/combination skin.

  • Light to medium coverage.
  • Matte. 
  • If you're going to an air conditioned room or somewhere cold then i'll say "Yes, you may use this". It does give that obviously makeup manipulated doll-look (if that is what they mean by glowing perfection). Personally, i think it's okay to look like you did prepared to go out. 
  • According to the sales lady, all the products manufactured from this cosmetic line are all mineral - so thumbs up. XD 
  • Sale for P231! Awesome deal.
  • Dries fast so you should be very quick in blending or applying.
  • After 3 hours, i have to retouch or put on powder because my t-zone starts to get oily (combination skin).
  • For those who sweats a lot, this product isn't for you. It tends to get washed out and is very obvious since it cakes together with the sweat. I tried covering it with a two-way cake foundation and setting it with a final powder but it just didn't work. The product still washes out with sweat or water. 
  • I have a problem with the pump. It spits the foundation so you should be very careful in pressing.
  • Price if not sale is P462 for 29.5 ml.
Will i repurchase? Maybe. I like the coverage it gives under cold conditions. Since most of the time it's hot, i don't think this one is recommendable. Basically, it depends on the weather.

REVIEW: Maybelline - ExpertWear Eyeshadow Quad 32

10:24:00 PM

Maybelline Quad (P150)As part of my Bazaar Haul, i have my Maybelline Quad 32 in Lavendar Fields. This one is on sale because of a little defect seen at the upper left corner of the palette. 


The eye shadows are in shimmer. 
  • The colors are really nice.
  • At the back it has instructions on how to get four different looks: subtle, casual, classic and dramatic.
  • I was sort of disappointed on this because it isn't that pigmented. It is very difficult to swatch and blend.
  • Also, I also think that it would work best with a primer because i doubt this will last long. 
 
Same height with a nail polish.

Retractable Kabuki Brush

REVIEW: Retractable Kabuki Brush

5:55:00 PM

I have been using a Kabuki Brush in applying my blush even if i don't feel like doing so. I just love the feeling of using it...




I love everything about it that i use it as a blush brush instead of using it in applying loose powder - very lame. XD 

As small as a Nail Polish


Here is how it looks when you open the cap

Then you pull it down. Voila!a cute kabuki brush


  • Very dense and fine bristles.
  •  It is very soft and it does not hurt my skin.
  • Great packaging. It has a cap so i could keep this one away from dust.
  • P129.75 only!
  • None. XD
P129.75
