Make Up Stories
I’m not much of a make up girl so when I buy cosmetics, do expect me to blab about it here in my blog. Haha! The photo above shows some of my latest purchases.
(Clockwise: Herb Day Cleansing Wipes from The Face Shop, Maybelline’s Clear Smooth Extra Powder Foundation, MAC’s Brow Set in Girl Boy, and Love and Beauty Eyeshadow Palette from Forever 21)
I was supposed to buy Herb Day make up remover wipes from The Face Shop, but I guess I grabbed the wrong pack and picked up cleansing wipes instead. Boohoo… They still do the job anyway so no biggie!
I’m a cheapo when it comes to make up stuff. I’ve been using this powder foundation in 03 Natural shade since my college days. I assure you it stays on for hours (literally) especially when you use BB cream as a prep. But you may or may not follow my tips, I’m no make up guru anyway! Haha!
Lo and behold, I bought an eyeshadow palette! It’s no miracle really. I just happen to pick this up while I was at the counter waiting for the saleslady to punch the clothes I bought. Beep after beep, I pick all those tiny girly stuff like lip gloss, nail polish, mirrors, and manicure sets. I happen to notice this patootie enclosed in a rather shabby packaging of carton. Lol! I like the shades so I add it up on my bag the last minute. It’s a total steal at under PHP300! It’s the last one on the rack too. Lucky me! Plus, what lured me into buying it is the fact that it’s the closest I could get to Urban Decay’s Naked Palette. Teehee!
Lastly and probably the one and only pricey thing I bought is MAC’s Brow Set. It’s my second Girl Boy bottle. My first bot is already running low due to its daily usage. I can’t seem to get out of the house without putting this thingy on my brows. It matches my haircolor quite perfectly so it’s a must have indeed. Fortunate to have found this available at Rustan’s Cebu. This baby is always and I mean ALWAYS out of stock. Quick tip, they have this in other shades too so if you have a darker hair color you’ll find something to match your brows with. Simply ask the MAC ladies (and gents?) assistance to aid you in choosing the right shade.
What’s your fave must have item?
