Review ♥ MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color (Carnivorous)

According to MAC, their Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color provides a splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that lingers.

Whichever shade you choose, all promise one thing: a splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that is impossible to forget.

Review ♥ MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Lightscapade) / ミネラライズ スキンフィニッシュ ライトスカペード

I bought this from Tokyu Department Store in Shibuya, Japan. This costs 4,536 Japanese Yen (tax included). I have been using this for months now and is still my favorite. 

     According to MAC's official website, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish is a luxurious powder with M·A·C Multi-Mineral Complex that adds highlights to the face and body. It is a luxurious, slow-baked, velvety soft, domed face powder with a radiant finish. Strategically buff on to add highlights to the high points of the face, or blend all over for a sheer luminous polish to the skin. It claims to provide radiance, dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested, and non-acnegenic.

     This is the most beautiful highlighter that I have seen. It looks like a marble and every time I look at this, I feel relaxed. 

     According to MAC's official website, this shade is a soft candlelit beige with multidimensional shimmer.

     The highlighter isn't so intense. It gives a subtle glow.

  It gives a natural glow and does…

Review ♥ BENCH Paint Box Eyeshadow Palette (Fancy Nude)

I bought this from one of Bench SM Mall branch in Philippines. This costs 229 Philippine Pesos (tax included). I think this is only available in Philippines because Bench is a local brand.

     The palette is glossy white and I love that I can see the eyeshadows through the plastic glass. It does not feel luxurious or there is nothing so special but for the price, this is very satisfying. Inside there is a little mirror. The size is just…

Review ♥ MAC Mineralize Blush (Warm Soul) / MAC ミネラライズ ブラッシュ ウオーム ソウル

I bought this from Tokyu Department Store in Shibuya, Japan. This costs 3,780 Japanese Yen (tax included). This is the most expensive blush I have so far. I am not really into expensive brands but MAC is one of my favorite. 
     I have already used this several times and I already lost the box. It contains 3.2 grams and will probably last for a year or more since I don’t wear this everyday and a little tap with a brush is enough to get the blush that I want.

     When I bought this, I didn’t have an idea on what shade to buy. I am torn between choosing a shade that will make me look mature or a shade that will make me look younger. After thinking for some time, I asked the saleslady to give me a blush that will make me look mature and will complement my skin and she gave me this. I am NC 15 by the way.
     According to their website, Warm Soul is a mid tone beige with gold pearl and is sheer. It has a lightweight formula that glides onto skin to achieve luminous colour that builds…

Review ♥ ADD ME TOKYO Dry Blush Cleaner (Dry Brush Cleaner)

I bought this from Don Quijote (Shibuya branch), a big discount store in Japan. I already lost the receipt and I also forgot the exact price but I am sure that this costs between 500 to 600 Japanese Yen. 

     Everything at the back is in Japanese since this is a Japanese product. But the pictures are enough to know the ways on using this.

     This is my first dry brush cleaner so I can not compare this with other brands. I also don’t know if this has good quality or bad. 

     The case is made of aluminum and there is also a cap to protect it from dust and dirt.

     This really works! After using my brush with a powder eyeshadow, I can immediately reuse it with other powder eyeshadow by cleaning it with this tool. 

     Some of the powders went down to the bottom so I think this tool will also be easy to clean.

Review ♥ ODBO Auto Eyebrow Pencil (Brownie)

I bought this from Sophia and Kalel (sophiaandkalel) an online shop in the shopping application Shopee in Philippines. It was on sale when I bought this, so instead of 200 Philippine Pesos, I got this for 120 Philippine Pesos.
     I’ve never heard of this brand before, so this will be the first product that I’ve tried from this brand.

     This is a product of Thailand but this is made in Korea. I’ve heard that Thailand has also many great make up and cosmetics products. 
INGREDIENTS: Zinc Stearate, Triethylhexanoin, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, CI77499, CI77492, CI77491, CI19140

     The look of the product doesn’t feel so luxurious but the design really looks cute. It is simple and I love the gold cap. 
     The pencil isn't that long and I bet that this won't last a month if you're going to use this every day. The spoolie of this eyebrow pencil is just the same with the others.

     The pencil is thin but I love it…
