Powder - Estée Lauder - Lucidity Transluscent Pressed Powder [DISCONTINUED]

Jun/08/2015

I've been searching high and low for this pressed powder but unfortunately all local Estée Lauder stores/counters do not carry the product. I ended up buying the Double Wear Stay in Place Dual Powder which is more of a powder foundation than simple powder. The product is actually good as it replaced my liquid foundation during these hot summer months. I really forgot about Lucidity until we …Read more

Was so impressed with my Estée Lauder Double Wear liquid foundation that I thought of buying EL Lucidity Powder after reading all the good reviews here in MUA. I decided to check the EL counter the other day in Rustan's Shangrila only to find out that Lucidity has been discontinued here in the Philippines. The SA suggested to get the Double Wear Stay in Place Powder Makeup as summer is …Read more

I was encouraged by my daughter to try this product. She has very sensitive skin and the fact that it was parabens free made it a good deal for her. She gave me a sample which was the wrong shade for me so we ended up going to the EL counter to try on a shade that would suit me. I ended up purchasing a bottle in Rattan shade as it had yellow undertones, perfect for my Asian skin color. I'm a …Read more

Was given a sample sachet when I bought the Missha Color Coordinating BB Cream. Left the sachet inside the paper bag for about a week and completely forgot about it. I was about to throw the paper bag when I saw the sachet inside so decided to try it while doing my makeup. I usually start with my primer of Benefit's Dr. Feel Good balm, then apply my Color Coordinating BB Cream before topping …Read more

Been on d hunt for a good contouring powder for months when I chanced upon this one. I like that it's a pure brown with no orange tones. My face us triangle shaped, narrow at the forehead and wide at the jaws. I would contour my entire lower face from the cheeks down to the jawline and I love that this powder applies well and stays on the entire day. I would trace my face with the powder …Read more

Mar/06/2014

Heroine has been out of stock here in Manila for months before it finally debuted today as a regular. Because it was out of stock for such a long time, I bought Up the Amp (which I didn't regret) as a substitute. Before proceeding to my meeting this morning, I wandered over to the Mac outlet, just planning to browse through the lipstick line. The SA, who recognized me, immediately took the …Read more

Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2014

While Christmas shopping in a high-end mall here in Manila, my youngest daughter, who is also a make-up artist encouraged me to buy Nars highlighting blush powder in Albatross. I was at first reluctant to purchase it as the product seemed to be too white and I feared it wouldn't complement my medium fair skin. After she brushed it on my under eye areas, across the bridge of my nose and on …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Prolongwear Lipstick in Perpetual Flame

Feb/12/2014

MAC Pro Longwear lipcreme in Perpetual Flame is a bright pinkish-red orange lipstick which is supposed to last for several hours. This was my first Mac Pro longwear lipstick which I wore to my eldest daughter's wedding. I wanted a color that was not too red nor too fuschia pink, but didn't also want to go pale as the wedding was in the evening. I also wanted a lipstick that would …Read more

Feb/11/2014

I absolutely love Mac lipsticks and have been using it almost exclusively for the past 5 years. Love the many colors, shades and finishes. I wanted to get Heroine but it was out of stock and the SA said she would not recommend it for mature women. She showed me Up the Amp in amplified creme and I tried it. It is a lovely purple pink which glides on so smoothly and looks good on fair to medium …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

Created with Sketch.

Feb/11/2014

I have combination dry/normal skin and use powder foundations as I find liquid foundations too heavy to use in a tropical climate. Was using Revlon Photoready Powder foundation but wasn't too happy with its sheer coverage. When my daughter got married, the makeup artist used Mac Studio Fix on me and I was surprised with its good coverage, masking flaws and dark spots. I bought one in NC30 …Read more
