Hey my beauty fanatics!!
It’s been a crazy month but I took a little time out to fill you in.
Here is a list of products I find to be professional worthy and most of all pocket friendly.

Elf cosmetics has been on my radar for years now and I’m happy to see it’s catching on.  I find that their brushes are affordable and great to use and mix with your more expensive brushes. Especially their angled eye shadow brush.
Elf brushes can be purchased at Monarch Pharmacy in Loshusan ( Barbican).
They also have a tested and proven brush cleaner which is one of the most affordable.

MAYBELLINE SUPER STAY FOUNDATION

I remember saying to myself not too long ago that I believed drugstore foundations weren't as good as high end foundations. But, before you bring out the pitchforks and torches, this is probably one of the first drugstore foundations that marked my turning point into a new drugstore loving era. This is the Maybelline Superstay 24HR Foundation and if I were to sum it up in three words, it’s flawless, it covers, and it’s comfortable.
So, what does this Foundation Do?

Maybelline says this is supposed to:
  • ·         Stays comfortable and looks naturally flawless all day
  • ·         Micro-Flex formula provides 24-hour wear and no transfer
  • ·         Withstands heat, sweat and humidity
  • ·         Oil-free, dermatologist-tested, fragrance-free
  • ·         Suitable for all skin types
The Key Characteristic though here is the Micro-Flex Formula. Maybelline boasts that this stuff moves with your skin and won’t cake and flake up like some foundations do. It’s long lasting and controls most oiliness. 

SACCHA LOOSE POWDER

I found a great loose powder working on Wealth Magazine shoot by the cosmetic sponsor.  Saccha loose powder is surprisingly amazing to use over foundations. It gives excellent coverage due to how thick it is.

MAYBELLINE CREME EYELINER

What I liked:
  • ·         Easy to find; available in any drugstore.
  • ·         Blackest Black is nice and opaque, no need to go over the line multiple times to achieve full, even coverage.
  • ·         The formula is extremely smooth and creamy. Not too dry, not too wet, perfect gel texture.
  • ·         Each liner comes with a brush and the brush is actually really good for applying this type of gel-textured liner. One thing I like about it is that it is flat and has a precise edge so it's easy to draw winged liner without making the lines blurry or too wide.

·         Quick Drying.
·         I haven't experienced any flaking, smudging or eye irritation while wearing Blackest Black
·         Under $1000 each, depending on where you shop.

What I didn't like:
  • ·         The Eggplant shade is not as opaque as the Blackest Black shade. I had to apply multiple layers to make an opaque line. Applying multiple coats causes the liner to flake when touched.
  • ·         The Eggplant shade isn't as strong of a color, either. It looks soft and faded and it lacks impact. I would have liked it to look more like Eggplant.
Blackest Black could be a little blacker; it's not quite as dark as MAC Blacktrack. It's really not bad, though.
·       While some places carry these for under $10 (I paid about $7 for mine), I've seen others price this as high as $12. MAC Fluidlines only cost $15 for the same amount of product.
·       Very small shade selection. Only four colors (black, brown, charcoal, purple).
Like I mentioned above, I'm really glad I took a chance on these. I'm rather impressed by the quality of them. The Eggplant wasn't exactly up to par, but I'm definitely going to buy Blackest Black again. It applies just as easily as the MAC Fluidline gel liner I normally buy, lasts just as long and looks just as good. The formula is creamy and a little on the wet side so it applies smoothly and without skipping. Plus, the brush it comes with actually works perfectly and I honestly wasn't expecting it to. Add another one to the list of shockingly awesome drugstore makeup items.I normally get my supplies for Maybelline at Beauty Spot near Spartan Gym

JORDANA CREME EYELINER



I usually prefer waterproof liquid liners/pens over crayons and pencils because of their longevity. However, because of the price of this eyeliner I didn't hesitate to give it a chance. As an immediate pro, I loved how it glided on. It was really easy to get a solid and pigmented line unlike a regular pencil. It didn't smudge or smear like some liquid liners and it's more of a crayon texture than a pencil. It would be hard to get a ultra thin line due to the thickness of the tip and I don't see it working well with a cat eye look. But it would be great on or below the waterline. My biggest con is that it didn't last all day like the waterproof liners. It wore off after a few hours. But, for the $400 price, I would purchase again from Body Accents in Mall Plaza.

REVLON MATTE RED


Revlon Matte Red is the perfect substitution for a mac matte lipstick...TRY IT !!! ....especially if you are an avid ruby lip wearing kinda girl who can't keep enough red lipsticks stashed away. Best prices for around town for Revlon is at Chesterville Pharmacy in Winchester Business Center:)

    I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both educative and engaging, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I'm very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning
    this.
