MUJI at MOA!

So happy to see muji there. I just got a dual sided hexagonal pen in pink and black and then a cosmetic sharpener . Yeah boring I know. But I saw those pretty acrylic drawers that will look perfect for my vanity which I was very tempted to buy if only I wasn't on my saving period. I could not spend anything big and I could not buy any make up until I get through atleast 50% of the contents of all my other make up which will take me forever -_- muji is really worth checking out. In about 3 months if I really really need those containers I will get them #excited

Sleek Blush in Scandalous





(I DO NOT KNOW WHY THE PICTURES ARE UPSIDE DOWN BUT OH WELL.)


Along with that Milani Blush that has been posted earlier, I also got this Sleek blush in Scandalous. It is a Tomato Red Blush. Looks very bright and scary in the pan, I got a little intimidated at first but when blended, it looks a lot more natural than most of the pinks or peaches I own. A bit hard to blend than the other blushes I have. I love almost everything about it. I love the Sleek packaging as their name suggests, I love the amount that I get for a cheap price.. It has 8g of product, almost double or even triple the amount of other blushes, and you couldn't even tell because it looks pretty small. It is a bit heavy though. It looks really expensive and well made which made me very excited to get my two other sleek blushes that I pre ordered from another seller as well as the Sleek Storm I-divine palette which will be coming by November.

I don't think that I would ever finish this blush mainly because I can only finish a blush if its the only blush I use for an entire year, but since I have a lot of blushes, I'm pretty sure that this may look full by the time it expires which is 24 months from now. It's very pigmented so I know that I would barely need to touch up for it to last the whole day.

This is an excellent dupe for NARS Exhibit A.

Very very impressed.

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso





Weee I finally got a blush from this brand! haha pre-ordered it from Digital Traincase,she's an awesome seller btw I think it is my third time to order from her online shop and I believe that she has a standing store in ortigas.

Anyway, this blush has been much loved by a lot of bloggers and beauty gurus on youtube and I can already see why. It's such a pretty peach color with gold sheen. THIS IS A 99% DUPE FOR THE BALM'S HOT MAMA Blush so If you can't get this, get that one and vice versa. Kinda disappointed about that because I do not want to have two similar blushes cause I believe that it is a waste of money. Wish I just chose a different color. Oh well I'll just be extra careful next time :|

I don't love the packaging because it's kinda cheap looking, the materials aren't really strong enough to be tousled around the bag so guess I can't take this to school. It does come with a small brush and a mirror at the back of it.

It's 3.5 g btw :)

Beyonce HEAT perfume

Dear brother got this for me when he went to Singapore and this was the perfume that was kinda similar to reb'l fleur by rihanna which I love. The bottle is kinda small but for me its fine because I still have a lot of stuff to go through. It smells kinda floral but a bit musky through the day. Awesome.

MAC Blush in Melba

Gave in to the temptation of busting out my not so extra cash. Went to powerplant today, the usual story happened-stumbled into a mac store went in, swatched, had the urge to get this best seller blush and then without dignity, went to the counter and paid for it.

I honestly feel ashamed of getting stuff almost every week and this is not even cheap enough to forgive. Guess I really have a problem :(

So on to the blush. I really don't think that this needs an introduction because its one of the most talked about blush by mac. So to me its like a dirty peach blush. Would look really pretty for most if not all skintones. It is a matte finish which really got me to get this today because I do not own a matte peach blush and I need one to use on top of my cream color base in seaside. Its very pigmented, may appear a bit chalky when swatched but when applied and blended on the cheeks it looks a lot more natural. I was so tempted to get the more brighter sides of the peachy spectrum which was foolish me, it has a frost finish and really really bright. Might go back for that though. Its new here in the philippines and the lady told me that they only had 2 in stock.

MAC StyleDriven Collection: Pro Longwear Lipglass




I finally got my hands on one of the Pro Longwear items. SHOW ME! Pro Longwear Lipglass. I was sooo inlove with the swatches of Whoops, Full Speed Ahead and Driven by Love but in person, to me it was a bit of a let down. This however was not strikingly beautiful but it is sooooo good on the lips.It's just like a dirty rose color, I'd say Gem of Roses in Lipglass form. Which I tried to pair it with today and it is perfect. Might be my new lip combo. The lipglass itself is a bit hard to apply because you have to drag on the color and it is a bit sticky. This lipglass also has a different applicatior which makes it easier to apply because it is flat on both sides but still had a rounded tip. The smell is still good, like all MAC lip products. The color is opaque so it could be worn alone or paired with a lipstick/lip liner

MAC Me Over Collection: Cream Colour Base







Yehey! Finally gave up and got the Cream Colour Base in Seaside. It's just too pretty to pass up. A cream colour base is just a nice base for your eyes, lips and cheeks. But for this specific cream colour base, it is not safe for the lips... It is kinda sad though because this would make a pretty shimmery pinky peach color. It looked awesome on the cheeks and the eyelids though. I though this was similar to Bare study or Rubenesque but it was so different because Rubenesque has a more golden look to it and Bare study has a white sheen.It is very unique and is another must-have from MAC. It cost 950php.

MAC Me Over & MAC StyleDriven Collection



If you've been visiting my blog recently (yesterday) you know that I got some stuff from the MAC me over collection. And today while I was waiting for the rain to stop so I can go home, I went to check the MAC counter in Marionnaud again. I couldn't stop myself from getting the CCB because it was sooo pretty and I know that I would be able to use this. The lady even told me that I was lucky because that was the last one and she even gave me the "honorary opportunity" to put the SOLD OUT sticker on the CCB sample. hahaha. :) As for the lipgloss, I was supposed to get Driven by Love and Whoops from the styledriven collection but I ended up getting this instead. It was so pretty and wearable where as the other two were very loud.

Happy with my purchase not happy with how my mom reacted though (she doesn't want me spending that much on a lipgloss or whatever cosmetic thing) but I can't help myself because that's what makes me happy :)

MAC Brush Cleaner


Finally got my hands on the MAC brush cleaner. I have been meaning to get this for a while but I never found the need to rush because I can keep my brushes clean with just some shampoo and oil. Recently, I realized that I needed a quick clean for my brushes because there are instances where I just really didn't have the time to deep clean them and to wait for them to dry because of school. I tried it a bit before I wrote this blog and it seemed to really clean my brushes. Which just a few drops it made my stippling brush and contour brush white again and it felt really soft. Another good buy today :)This was 680 php.

MAC Me Over Collection: Oh,Oh,Oh lipstick




I got this today at Marionnaud (Mall of Asia) for Php 1000 (Yes they've increased the prices of their products..sad i know :( ) It is a lustre lipstick and I never really taught I'd this because the final list, I only had Outre and Equilibrium. When I saw this I got really curious because it looked extremely unattractive in the tube. It's like a muddy metallic brown with gold shimmers. But when I swatched it, it just blew me away. It turned into a sheer raspberry color with just a hint of shimmer, very wearable and it looked like it will suit a lot of skintones. Good thing I got this because the products there were selling out fast. This was definitely a good buy because I have not seen anything like it before. On my lips it looked a lot more plummy pink which i liked a lot :>

MAC Me Over Collection: Equilibrium Blush






Love the name! This is actually the reason why I had to rush to the mall today. Just to have this would make my entire day perfect. It is a satin finish, it's a light-medium brown with gold shimmers. It would work as a contour color for light skintones and a nice blush especially for medium skintones. I tried this on my face and to me it looked a little peachy brown which I can't really explain why because it was supposed to have some pink to it. It looked really nice and it was sooo worth every penny. I don't understand why Stunner was already sold out instead of this one because this seemed more unique. I guess Filipinos love the typical pink cheeks which I'm sure they have a ton of (like me).

MAC Me Over Collection Mini Haul!



I don't know this isn't really a haul :)) cause there's only two things from the Mac me over and a brush cleaner :))

So yeah I got Oh,Oh,Oh which is a lustre lipstick.. it looks sooo ugly on the tube

I got Equilibrium which is a satin blush...

Oh yeah and I have to blog about what happened earlier. So i rushed to the mall with my family because of the movie No other woman, and the Mac me over event. My heart was literally going crazy when I got near the store. Some stuff where sold out already and I wanted to swatch everything but my mom was telling me to go eat and watch the movie first. When I finished eating, they told me to get the tickets and while I was out, I rushed back to the Mac counter to purchase equilibrium which was my ultimate must-have product for this collection. I paid for that and told the lady that I'll go back for the others later when I have the time. Which I eventually did. As you know I have been having some money issues so I borrowed some money from my mom's credit card which I will pay tomorrow or this week since she doesn't want me to buy anymore make up cause she said I have a lot already. I honestly think that this collection was a bit of a let down for me. There was no standout for most of the products when swatched, it just looked better on the internet and on somebody else. I didn't get any of the eyeshadows because I just ordered my UD naked palette and is about to order the Sleek i-divine storm palette and I feel like that's enough for my eyes for a year. And the eyeshadows were so small that I can't force myself to pull out that kind of money for it. For the Stunner Blush, I know that it will be one of the sell-outs for this collection, but really I had the chance to get it earlier but I didn't feel the need to. It isn't that amazing and it's highly dupable. I am still thinking of purchasing the 226 but I don't know if i can think fast enough because there were only two left and for sure it's already sold out on other branches since they launched earlier. The lipglasses were okay but I didn't think I need it. I loved social light though. The lipsticks were fine but I didn't like the dark colors and I also didn't see runaway red so maybe it's sold out already.

I didn't get anything from the COLOURIZATIONS and STYLEDRIVEN collection just because I didn't have that palpitating must-have-this feeling about it. I liked the eyeshadows though because they were big and is the pro-longwear collection.

Separate reviews and swatches for the 2 things (Oh,Oh,Oh and Equilibrium Blush)
