RED ALERT: Red Lipstick-MUFE Rouge Artist 42

Friday, August 31, 2012
Are you one of those gals who is into bright bold lipstick?(like me),then this lipstick might fancy you!.I love Red Lipsticks,i dont wear them everyday,for the reason that with it on,my face looks over the top,especially if i have smokey shadows on,one of my friend doesnt like the fact that most of the girls in my office gives me that icy stare when im wearing my reds(since i dont wear foundation and such everyday i just sometimes use red lipstick to brighten up my face). =D

here's how it looks on my nc 20-25 skintone...its more opaque in person the flash washes the shade off a bit.the good part is that,i got that much pigmentation with just one swipe!.

Photobucket
it instantly brightens up my complexion...i usually go for this kind of look when im in a hurry.i just grab any of my bold pigmented lipstick(which usually comes in red,plums,berry) and then im good to go.

DSCN2464
here's how it looks without a flash.(sorry for the Crappy quality)

im going to visit my nearest Mac store to check out Ruby Woo or Russian Red.Ive been eyeing for that lipstick for quite sometime now..So if youre lemming for a Red Lipstick,give this one a try,i think it'll look great on most skintones!.

heres another Red Lipstick Swatch that i have from Guerlain's Rouge G:

How i make my Eyebrow Powder Last..

Saturday, August 25, 2012
last few weeks ago i accidentally..? over plucked my right eyebrow,it was soo obvious,it even gave me the feeling of having no brow tail at all,and so everytime i go out i need to groom and fix them..

Photobucket
i already brushed them in place(grown them out as well..thanks to ARGAN OIL!), and yet it still cannot cover that bald area.=D,even with my brow powder i cannot seem to get the right coverage that i want.i mean ive used my in2it and my smashbox but since it doesnt have any hair on that area they tend to just slip off and look somewhat lighter.

Photobucket
so what i do is,i use my trusty Eyeprimer to hold my eyebrow powder in place!.and i really love how well my browpowder looks,i have to use a light hand since im using an eyeprimer as a base,it will make the powder more pigmented that the usual..

Photobucket
i apply most product on my tail part since mine doesnt have that much hair on that area,then i blend whats left on my fingers on the front part of the brows.

Photobucket
most days ill apply a black brown eyebrow powder on the tail part to make it look more define.

Photobucket
this was me without any primer on my brows..from afar you can see that some parts were already faded and uneven.

Photobucket
and this is me with primer on my eyebrow after 6-7 hours...

so if you're eyebrow powder doesn't last that long,try using your eyeprimer to kick it up,for that longer wearing good looking eyebrows.

LUSH Dark Angels Facial Cleanser

Sunday, August 19, 2012
you mightve noticed by now that for the past few days im posting skincare reviews,first of all these products that im reviewing works differently on every person,this is just my way of helping others who are suffering from the same problem as mine,though still;this is just an added opinion,so here i am again for another cleanser review..

DSCN2028
according to lushusa
Dark Angels is the nemesis of all blemishes, breakouts and blocked pores. Our soft black scrub was conceived when we combined the exfoliating power of Angels on Bare Skin and the sebum balancing abilities of Coal Face. The result? A velvety cleanser, sprinkled with black sugar and powdered charcoal to gently exfoliate and cleanse away excess oils. We add antimicrobial rhassoul mud and vitamin-rich cold pressed organic avocado oil to soften, moisturize and nourish skin, as well as sandalwood and rosewood oils to soothe

ive been using this for many months now,this is the second product that ive ever bought from Lush,i came to lush because i think that my skin needed something less harsher and more gentler cleansers,the first one that i bought from them was Fresh Farmacy,but ive run out of it and i forgot to take some shots so im reviewing this first...

DSCN2032
when i first saw it i was like...hmmm..how will i use this cleanser..beforehand i told the Lush lady that i wanted a cleanser that lather's well,im a sudsy cleanser kind of gal,for me if its not bubbly its not going to clean that well...that was just me..hehe i know that,most times thats not the case lol..

ingredients:
Rhassoul Mud , Cold Pressed Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima) ,Glycerine , Powdered Charcoal , Black Sugar (sucrose) , Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate , Perfume , Linalool , Sandalwood Oil (Santalum album) , Rosewood oil (Aniba rosaeodora)

DSCN1707-1
this is how it looks like up close,i only need this much for my face,if im gonna use it as a mask though i sometimes use twice as much.

so how do i use it?
i dampen my face first with water then i scoop a small amount of lush dark angels,i place it on my palm,add water depending on how pasty i want my cleanser should be,then i mix it with my finger and apply it on my face one area at a time,then i do the usual massage,lather,and i sometimes let it sit on my face as a mask,then i rinse.

DSCN1711-1
looks icky right?and yes! its quite messy to use! so i always make sure to just use it while im in the shower,its not again going to foam up but it will give you that clean feeling after you rinse it,the thing that i like about this one the most is that after i rinse it off and pat my face dry,my skin feels like the oils and gunks has been remove,but it doesnt feel dry or tight,i also noticed that my skin brightens up after each wash,so if im feeling tired and feels like there's a lot of oil sitting on top of my face this is the cleanser that i will use to manage that dull,grease-y look.

DSCN1713-1
here's what's left after i massage it into my face..

Texture:

pure black, gritty and a little bit drier than a clay.
when wet-it depends on how much water you put,but it will still have those tiny beads which is great for exfoliating.

smell-
i guess for me,its a hint of licorice and charcoal is what i sometimes get,but there are also times that it smells like something else,like wet leaves...

packaging-
Clear plastic Tub

Size-
100grams per tub..the Sales Attendant told me that they only sell their products per 100 grams,so if you want to try it you have to buy their full size,although ive seen some lush stores which sells 50 grams tub of different cleansers(like dark angels and angels on bare skin) but you still have to buy two cause as ive mentioned the total weigh must be 100 grams or more.

Availability-
Lush Trinoma
Lush MOA
Lush The Block


Great for those:
oily skin
Blemished Skin i guess mild to moderate

Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara(Waterproof)

Tuesday, August 14, 2012
Im finished with my Cat Eyes Mascara from Maybelline and i was looking for a replacement,and since i love to try new things i opted for their Magnum,though something else also caught my attention...The Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara who doesnt want to have that much lashes...well i dont want a million though ill look weird...OHHH the things they do to Market their Products...i have to admit it works! i bought one didnt i? hehe.
Photobucket
Ulta description:(though this is for the plain one not the waterproof version)
The Millionizer brush has a multitude of bristles to separate lashes for a fanned-out lash effect. The elastomer applicator is ultra flexible with both long and short bristles to coat each lash evenly from root to tip. The excess wiper removes excess mascara. It leaves the brush coated with just the right amount of formula to achieve maxed up volume with no overload and no clumps.
Clump-free. Smudge-proof. Ophthalmologist and allergy tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

Photobucket
the brush is made out of plastic,the thing that i like about the brush is that its not that stiff,you can also bend the neck of the wand for easier application

Photobucket
the formula is much wetter? than Maybelline Magnum Mascara,but thats not a problem,it dries as fast as a normal mascara.

DSCN1391
Right-is the Maybelline Magnum Volum Mascara/Left- Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes,i tried removing them with soap and water but it takes a lot of scrubbing so best thing to do is to use a makeup remover or a cleansing oil.

Photobucket

Bare lashes..again...

Photobucket
Lash with Loreal Voluminous Million mascara.i think this is two to three coats..loooovveeee....i like this more than my Cat eyes now.

Photobucket

I love how my lashes flares up and looks like as if i have my falsies on.

Photobucket


PROS:
  • locally available
  • Waterproof
  • holds the curls really well
  • Didnt give me that clumping problem,doesnt smudge either
  • gives volume and lengthens at the same time.
  • Nice Wand
  • Doesnt take too long to dry
  • Coats lashes evenly
  • Looks like im wearing my regular False eyelashes on.

CONS:
  • i dont know if its already available here in the Philippines so i guess its availability.

Maybelline Magnum Volum Express Waterproof Mascara

Wednesday, August 08, 2012
hi dearies,so here's another one for those who loves to prettify their lashes,ive had this for like how many months now and for the last few weeks ive been wearing this a lot,read on if you want to know why.

DSCN1380
Php:429.00
their claim:
Collagen Formula
Super volumized lashes awaits thanks to the unique all-plum no clump Collagen Formula of Volum Express Magnum Mascara

The Mega Brush
it just keeps getting better and better!the patented curved brush that follows your eye shape and lifts up your lashes is now packed with more bristles that reach even the smallest eyelash

DSCN1383
i love how this brush evenly coats my lashes,its a breeze using this mascara with,it do coats them very well without clumping,and looking like you've even tried.the brush as i see it is thicker at the middle and is slightly thinner on the end.

DSCN1384
i know nothing about collagen mascara's but for this one i noticed that its not too dry compared to some other mascaras that ive tried ,and it doesnt feel heavy on the lashes.Its waterproof which is a plus.

Photobucket
bare lashes,what im looking for a mascara is VOLUME,cause i have fine lashes.

Photobucket
here's how it looks like when coated..other than VOLUME my mascara must be able to hold the curls until i wash them off,and its a yes on this mascara.,though if again im gonna compare it to my Cat eyes mascara from maybelline in terms of holding up the curls ill go with the Cat eyes mascara.Even if it holds up the curls,at the end of the day i can still see the difference,its not as held up as it was at the first 3-4 hours of application

As for lengthening well i can see a bit of difference..its a volumizing mascara anyways.

Photobucket
this is my to go mascara when i want to have that natural flutters,even though with two coats it didnt look as clumpy as my cat eyes mascara ,my lashes looks healthy without me looking like ive put on some mascara,which i would like to have on a daily basis hehe,so i usually reach for this one mostly everyday.

Photobucket 
PROS:
  • locally available
  • Waterproof
  • holds the curls quite well
  • Didnt give me that clumping problem,doesnt smudge either
  • Good Natural Healthy Volumized lash effect
  • Nice Wand
  • Doesnt take too long to dry
  • Coats lashes evenly and i dont have to do a lot of coats for me to get that.

CONS:
  • Not as Volumizing as others would think(imho)

Naruko Tea Tree Oil Out Acne Clay Cleanser

Sunday, August 05, 2012
So Cleansers...most of us must be using atleast one,or in my case a few,here's one cleanser that ive been using for how many months now,and i would like to share my take on Naruko's Tea Tree Clay Cleanser,its something new to me cause ive never used a clay cleanser before,but hey it says" Tea Tree Oil and Acne Cleanser" so i bought it hehe.

RSCN1528
i purchased this item at wehaveit43 a few months back at Php 600.00

naruko usa.(http://www.naruko.us)
NARUKO Tea Tree Oil Out Acne Clay Cleanser can be used as a cleanser and as a clay mask. The clay cleanser is based on the themes "deep" and "basic" to clarify skin: it combines deep cleansing clay with basic facial cleanser to wash away the unnecessary oil to prevent clogged pores. The cleanser gently exfoliates with small jojoba beads. The cleanser also brightens skin and lighten acne scars. Mint leaves skin a cool, refreshed feeling. Cleansing is the most important step to keep acne away!

How i use it:
this cleanser is what i use almost every morning i have a lot of cleansers and i change them depending on how my skin feels that day but most days this is what i reach out for,i just massage my face spreading the cleanser,for about a minute or so.
I LOVE the fact that after washing my face it leaves my skin feeling  fresh and cool,it has a minty/soothing sensation on every wash,that's why i like using it every morning cause not only it wakes my skin up,also the peppermint smell awakens my sleeping senses.

Photobucket
here's how the cleanser looks like,it looks like my mint Julep Mask only paler and a little bit softer,so yes,as it says on the label,its a Clay Cleanser..and again,im a sudsy kind of gal,i want my cleansers to foam as i lather them,but there's always an exception..this much is enough for my whole face i sometimes add more if i want to have a good lather.

the only downside of this one is that i have to get atleast an inch for me to be able to get a good lather,

ingredients:
Purified Water (Aqua), Phytoferulin® Extract [Kalanchoe Spathulata Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Alpine Skullcap (Scutellaria Alpina) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Masterwort (Peucedanum Ostruthium) Leaf Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Alps Wormwood (Artemisia Umbelliformis) Extract, Leontopodium Alpinum Extract, Alpine Willowherb (Epilobium Fleischeri) Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Chamolmilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract], Glycolic Acid, Tranexamic Acid, Snow Fungus (Tremelia Fuciformis) Extract, Encapsule Retinol, Panthenol, Menthol, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Polyquarternium-51, Jojoba Esters, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc PCA, PEG-7 Olivate, Camphor, Hectorite, EDTA, Piroctone Olamine, Methylisothiazolinone, Phenoxyethanol, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Essential Oils of Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia), Orange (Citrus Nobilis), Spearmint (Mentha Viridis), Lemon (Citrus Limonum), Lime (Citrus Aurantifolia), Peppermint (Mentha Piperita), Grapefruit (Citrus Paradise), Niaouli (Melaleuca Viridiflora)

DSCN1525
There's a small amount of beads on this cleanser( jojoba beads),that they say help exfoliates the skin,there's only a few amount on each squeeze,so its very gentle on the skin.

after washing my face it doesnt feel tight which is mostly the case to some soap based or foam-y cleansers that ive tried,still my skin feels really clean after using this,it will not remove eye make up so make sure to use a makeup remover first before washing your face

so ill give it a rating:4/5

*Also it says that you may also use this as a mask,but i havent tried doing that yet.
Photobucket
from narukosg.(click to enlarge)

smell:
a very light minty/peppermint smell

texture:
Light Clay like texture with small amount of beads,if you have the queen helene mask its much softer and lighter than that.

Size:
120ml/4.2 fl oz on a squeeze type packaging

Availability:
its not locally available here in my country but its available online through wehaveit43

Great for those with:
Acne
Oily Skin
Sensitive skin
i guess normal to combination skin as well.

NYX Matte Lipstick in Nude

Friday, August 03, 2012
i was supposed to purchase the NYX Black Label in Nude at Digital Traincase unfortunately i got the wrong one,i was watching a youtube guru who likes NYX "Nude" lipstick not one but 2 gurus liked it a lot i thought its their Matte Lipstick but then again,when i bought this one and watched the video again...both of them have the Black Label Nude LOL..(tanga lang?)

Photobucket
got it at 275.00 -280.00 forgot the price @ Digital Traincase
Told you that im on my nude lipstick phase..=p...i cant actually describe what a nude lipstick looks like...basta for me its almost as close to how my lip color looks like but a little lighter?....

Photobucket 
 here's a swatch of NYX Matte Lipstick nude(top) and Wet n Wild Mega Last lip color in 900B(bottom)

Photobucket
this lipstick is more on the pink side if compared to Wet n Wild 900B,its creamy and has a semi-matte finish (imho),its not as creamy as NYX round lipstick,for me that's better because i noticed that some RLS doesnt last that long and doesnt look that good on my lips,since it too creamy for me,it sinks in to my lip lines,this one though does too but not as obvious as the RLS.

Photobucket
i have neutral skintone im glad that both the wet n wild and nyx matte nude doesnt wash me out.Im still looking for an Affordable "drugstore" kind of nude but for now this two will do.
