Canmake Lasting Multi Eyebase WP | Review

Canmake Lasting Multi Eyebase WP

Confession time. I had never really invested in an eyeshadow primer (Gasp!) because most of the eyeshadows I’ve been using are quite long-wearing. Viseart, Lorac, Urban Decay, just to name a few.

Whuttt?! A beauty blogger who doesn’t routinely use a primer?! Yeah, that happens.

But when Canmake was finally available over at the Power Plant Mall in Rockwell, Makati, one of the things I bought to try out was their eyebase. Today’s review will be all about that. Continue reading

October 2014 Product Round-up

October 2014 Product Roundup

It’s that time of the month again. Before I forget, here’s my most loved products for the month of October.

Givenchy Le Rouge Rose Plumetis. I already reviewed one of the two lipsticks Givenchy released for Fall but I actually bought the two shades available in Sephora. Of the two, I feel this one is more work appropriate so I’ve been wearing it on most days. I haven’t written about this one yet but I will. I promise.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. I believe I described this as “… magic in a bottle” when I reviewed it here. I’m hoping this will last me for a long time given that I only have a sample of it.

Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Blush/Bronzer Duo in Glisten

Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Bronzer Blush Duo Glisten

Confession: I bought this Sonia Kashuk Blush/Bronzer Duo to avail of the free shipping at Target when I ordered their 15th Anniversary Brush Set.

Can you blame me? The lure of an extremely beautiful packaging and the detail on the pan can be hard to resist. More so when you get two products for less than the price of most high-end brands.

Also, it’s been sitting on my ‘to-buy’ list for far too long. The procrastinator in me finally gave the green light. Continue reading

Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition 15-Piece Brush Set

Sonia Kashuk 15th Anniversary Brushes4

The Sonia Kashuk 15-piece Professional Brush Set. Sigh. I can look at you and your purple handles, purple fibers and gold ferrules all day.

I had this set for more than 2 weeks now but I can’t fully make up my mind about them. Writing my thoughts down was harder than the time I had to review the Laura Mercier Oil-Free Foundation Primer.

But here we go. Just a few thoughts. I might or might not do a more detailed review later. I can’t promise though. Since it’s a limited edition, the chances are highly unlikely. Continue reading
