Hey Everyone! Long time no update and I feel like it’s long overdue!
Today I’m sharing a few things I’ve accumulated from the past month and sharing them with you plus mini reviews.
The reviews I will be making will be based on One Question: Will I buy this again?
Let’s get started.
One of my biggest buys this month is this 6 in 1 contour palette top to shades are classified as highlights (They are matte) Below two are Obviously contour and the side 2 are somewhat transition/bronzer type powders.
My thoughts: I wouldn’t buy this again. Cost 200 PHP
Swatches show what type of finish I got.
Highlight: Chalky and stark. One is pure white and the other is a yellowy powder, Eyebrow highlight can be done with this but for face or cheeks, not much. Setting powder: probably.
Contour: Lighter shade has a red undertone and when I tried doing light contour, it was like red clay was streaked over me contour lines. The darker one was usable but it had a grey undertone that didn’t give a natural look to say the least.
Bronzers: These are the best for me, The bottom right has shimmer that gives a warm glow and the top right one can give a nudey blush sorta vibe.
I’d give this 4 out of 10 stars. Is a contour palette really necessary? – Comment below 🙂
I’ve mentioned Sophie Paris products before so as a favor to a friend I bought a few more to try out. Total cost of Products 230 Php + 95 PHP
This is the best in the bunch. This is the Sophie Paris Magic Pink Cream.
This functions like the Frog Prince Cream blush where each application differs from person to person. It adapts to the persons body temperature to get a different flush for each person.
I love this because it cuts my makeup time, I dab a bit on my finger and circle this around my cheeks and boom, instant glow. I like the fact it’s very natural looking and blends into the skin.
Would I buy this Again? Definitely! Cost 95 Php
Strawberry Milkshake Lip-Balm.
As a lip Balm I’d rate this low. It does what it does, add moisture but It also cancels out your lip color giving it a pale pink color which is disturbing to look at and It’s so sweet! I like flavored balms but this one feels like your running candy over it and just wanna lick it off.
Would I buy this again: No, Pass. There are better options there and cost less. This is 110 PHP
Quick Fresh Face Mist with Hyaluronic acid.
I’ve heard great things about Hyaluronic acid: Pardon my spelling. This can be spritz on before or after makeup. I love it. It’s like a Primer and moisturizer in one. It lessens the size of my pores and it feels like you’ve just sprayed fancy water on your face and I love it. No scent though sorry.
Would I buy this again? I already Pre-ordered one as a back up. Cost 120 Php
I previously shared a haul where I bought an Ecotools mini brush set and loved it. I ordered a full sized single which is their Finishing Kabuki brush and I love it. Soft to the touch and it’s dual fiber too. Only problem is, I’m not sure where to use this exactly. I’ve just used this to dust on powder.
Would I buy this again? On the fence about it.Cost 150 Php
Don’t let the name fool you, I’m not sure if Anastasia has this lip color line.
This is a retractable Chubby stick in the Shade Aanty which is a straight up concealer on my lips type of shade. I like it for that super barely there nude lip but it needs work to achieve it. I like this, not loving it.
Would I buy This again?: Yes but in a few different shades.120 PHP each shade
So that’s it for today, I need to get to bed and I hope you like what I shared.
