February Makeup Haul

It’s only the 3rd day of February but I’m already making a February haul to tell myself that these items would be my last purchase! HAHA! Being a makeup addict is fun but like any other addiction, the price is not a joke. Anyway, these are the things I got myself this late January-February. You might call me nouveau riche and I won’t even be offended because it’s fucking true lol. I’m not from a rich family and whatever I have or whatever I got myself, it’s all because I worked hard for it and I don’t see anything wrong if I want to share it.

So yup, sharing these with you.

I know, I know. These are so pretty that I squealed when I got these in the mail. I love the all-black thing going on there.

LORAC PRO 1 PALETTE – PHP 2,300.00 from @yourmakeupstoreph IG

You have no idea how long I’ve been wanting to have this palette. I have the Naked palette which is the cult favorite but I wasn’t satisfied. I’ve been contemplating whether to get it or not but since I’m slowly mastering the art of smokey eye, I knew that it’s finally time. It also comes with a primer and I’m sure it’s really worth the price. Have I told you that I peed my pants a little when I tried it? OMG! It’s so silky and buttery!!!!!!! IT’S SURREAL!!!!

MAC STUDIO WATERWEIGHT FOUNDATION – PHP 2,200.00

HANDS DOWN, BEST FOUNDATION EVER! My skin looked so healthy and not made up. It looks like it’s my natural skin because of its dewy finish. It lasts the whole day and doesn’t oxidize. I’m in love!! My shade is in NC 35, btw.

elf LIP EXFOLIATOR – PHP 220.00 from @yourmakeupstoreph IG

I have the driest lips in the world and I’ve been hearing a lot of raves about this. Unfortunately, it’s not available in any elf counters in the PH so I had to get it online. Tried it when I received it and it tastes amazing (not that it’s the point of this product hahaha).

elf BAKED BLUSH IN PINKTASTIC – PHP 220.00 from @yourmakeupstoreph IG

Since I was already spending a lot on my Feb haul, I told myself to just buy the BECCA Highlighter in Champagne Pop which costs PHP 2500 but I realized that I’m just starting in this whole highlighter. This elf highlighter is a dupe of MAC’s Soft and Gentle and it looks amazing on any skin tone!

NARS Blush in Orgasm – PHP 1,600 in NARS counters

Not in the picture is my new blush I got last week of January. I’ve been wanting to have this one but it’s so expensive for just a blush. Luckily, I found one makeup artist who sells this for just a fraction of the price. Unfortunately, his stocks are all sold out so I can’t refer him to you. This one retails for 1,600 in NARS counters but I wouldn’t buy it if it weren’t for the sale. HAHAH. I’m a makeup addict but I’m practical.

That’s it and I hope this will be my last purchase for the month. Wish me luck!!!

Removing Makeup Using Lip Balm feat. Smith’s Rosebud Salve

If it wasn’t for sanitary purposes, I wouldn’t want to remove the makeup I worked hard applying flawlessly forever. LOL. But it is one of the rules of hygiene and beauty to REMOVE YOUR MAKEUP BEFORE GOING TO BED no matter what happens. Before, I just use water and a soap to remove my makeup and realized that it’s taking me so long to remove all that waterproof goodness of my mascara. That’s why I converted to using makeup remover and yes, it removes makeup so well but I can feel dryness and itchiness after. Luckily, I bought Smith’s Rosebud Salve and thought “Hey, if it’s safe to use as a hand lotion, hair polish, and lip balm, I guess this can be a makeup remover, too?”

This time, curiosity didn’t kill the cat. It works wonderfully as a makeup remover. It makes my face feel so soft and moisturized plus it smells so good! Its main use is lip balm and it makes my lips soft, too! If you don’t know Smith’s Rosebud Salve, it’s a cult favorite and it’s been around since 1892!!! It’s raved by both celebrities and makeup artists because of its versatility and you won’t wonder why the minute you bought this.

It originally comes in a vintage tin can but I find that a little unsanitary dipping my fingers and applying that on my face everyday so I opt for the tube type. They also have this in different variants such as Minted Rose, Strawberry, Mocha Rose, Menthol and Eucalyptus Balm. I got mine for PHP490.00/ $10 in PCX Stores and I’ve been loving mine eversince I got it. It’s not too thick and not too runny! I LOVE IT!

So, how to remove makeup using a lip balm? Watch this!

Fast Easy Last Minute Halloween Makeup | Evil Witch

If you’re like me, I’m not the biggest fan of Halloween or any parties. I know. I was born old! I’m such a grandma. Anyway, as it is required for us to attend our Halloween party for our company, I’m rocking this evil witch not with a costume but with a makeup look. I know that may sound kill joy but we all have our own preference, right? And my preference is to be a sultry evil witch – which I am in real life, haha!

I intentionally created this as easy as I can – no crazy techniques, special brushes, ten thousand eyeshadows because I want it to be for beginners when it comes to makeup. This is so easy and even a chair can do it lol. You can recreate this in 5 minutes! The hardest part here is the false lashes but you can substitute that with mascara and just curl your lashes.

WATCH: Fastest and Cheapest Everyday Makeup

I hope I don’t offend anyone when I say I snort whenever I see these “3-minute makeup challenges”. Challenge? Really? I can legit do full face makeup in 3 minutes hahaha kidding I sound so arrogant but 3 minutes is MORE THAN enough for me to achieve my everyday makeup.

That is why I decided to create this 2-minute makeup tutorial for those who are on-the-go who want to use affordable makeup.

Surprise, surprise, this is how I look like when I just woke up and have no makeup on. I don’t care what you think but this is reality and I am that person. Haha.

In 2 minutes, I was able to conceal my dark circles, do my brows, contour, add eyeliner, blush, and lipstick. I looked like this.

Fresher and more polished. As I’ve said in the vid, it’s not a drastic difference but it made me look better and ready to go.

PLEASE WATCH & SUBSCRIBE <3

LIST OF PRODUCTS:

  • LA Girl Pro Concealer in Creamy Beige (USD 5 / PHP 299) – I got this online and it’s way cheaper compared when you buy it in malls. I love this! It has a thick consistency that hides all blemishes.
  • Nichido Precise Eye Pencil in Walnut (PHP 138) – This is a local brand makeup but a good dupe for this is the Etude House Drawing Eyebrow which is just USD 2. Same consistency and longevity!
  • elf Black Eyeliner Essentials Brightening Eyeliner (USD 1 / PHP 135) – This one is nice when creating a smudged look which I really dig when wearing my eyeliner.
  • elf Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in Antigua (USD 3 / PHP 249.75) – Perfect and compact! I am just not a fan of the shimmer in the contouring powder.
  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes (USD 6 / PHP 270) – Cheaper when bought online. Perfect shade as it looks natural. Drying so wear a balm!

I guess that’s it for my latest video. Let me know what you want to see next. I am really enjoying making YT videos haha!

Thanks, guys!
