Eye Primer - Blinc - Blinc Eyeshadow Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/25/2018

I recently purchased this primer after reading reviews and thought I'd test it along with my UDPP original. For reference, my lids are oily. I live in a humid country. Today's temperature was around 31 degrees Celsius.

Short story: Blinc wins.

My eyeshadow glides better with UDPP. Blinc takes a little longer to dry on the lids. It does not dry fully too so …

Cleansers - Gatsby Mandom - Bifesta Cleansing Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2016

I've used up my Bifesta Sebum and am currently using the BrightUp variant. I have no problem with both variants. Removes makeup thoroughly except extremely waterproof ones like mascaras and eyeliners. I use oil cleanser for that.

I also have Bioderma and Hada Labo micellar water. They are all virtually the same in efficacy.

Price is very good. Around $9 here in PH …

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Le Rouge (All Shades)

Feb/11/2015

For reference I am somewhere between NC 37-40. I have this in 816 Lingering Mocha and 735 Mesmerizing Merlot. I love them! I've been looking for an MLBB color for a long time and 816 qualifies!

I first got 816 and decided to get a few more plus 735 as a backup since they look very similar based on swatches online (coz when you find your mlbb, you make sure you have backups!) I …

Eyes - MILANI - Shadow Eyez 12 HR Pencil

3.0

Jan/21/2014

I have the naturally chic colors in black ink, espresso line, cafe au lait, and almond cream.

I am half and half about these pencils. In general, they all have great pigmentation and they dry fast. BUT! They don't last without a primer so I can't use these as an eyeshadow base. (I have oily lids.) It can go for three hours and then it'll start to crease and disappear …

Toners - Neutrogena - Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2014

This is effective but can be quite drying, even for oily skin, which is why I'm giving it only 4 lippies. It calms down breakouts overnight until a day or two, depending on the severity.

To avoid drying my skin, I only use this when I feel a pimple forming and continue until it subsides. On days when my skin is good, I non-alcohol toners like Dickinson witch hazel and Etude …

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Expert Face Brush

4.0

Jan/04/2014

I like this brush a lot. It's very dense, light, and compact. It buffs really well, but because of the small size, it takes me more time to buff on product. If your foundation dries fast, I recommend doing your face per quadrant. It drags a bit under my eye so I'm considering using a different brush for that area.

Here in PH, this costs around $12. I think its pretty …

Eye Primer - MILANI - Eyeshadow Primer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/03/2014

I bought this primer because of the high ratings here on MUA. For reference I have seriously oily lids. Also, I live in a tropical country so that's another factor to consider when judging the longevity and efficacy of a product. I use UDPP and Etude House Proof10 primer (Korean brand) to make my eyeshadows stay. For review purposes, my comparison will be versus the UDPP since Proof10 …Read more

Brows - K-Palette - Lasting 2Way Eyebrow Pen

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2013

I am very picky with my brow products because I have combination-oily skin. That said, I love this! It lasts all day! The liquid product isn't too strong so I don't end up with overly drawn brows. The powder also sets the liquid well. It also adds more, but still subtle definition to the brows.

for a sharper arch and tip, I use an angled liner brush, smudge it on the sponge …

Brows - benefit Cosmetics - Brow-Zing in Medium

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2013

My skin is combination to oily, depending on the weather.

I received this as a gift but I am aware of the price of Benefit Brow zing. This product didn't wow me at all. I find the wax 'patchy', if that makes sense. At first I thought it was because I didn't know how to use it but after a few days of using, it really isn't the easiest for the brows. The powder …

Treatments (Face) - Mizon - All In One Snail Repair Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/08/2013

My skin type: Combination to oily (depending on the weather), easily breaks out, leaves acne scars that take forever to fade.

Mizon snail cream cleared my pimples, brightened my skin, and faded my acne scars! Of course not totally because I still get occasional breakouts before my period. But for when my skin is reacting to new products, or when I feel like my skin is dull, I …
