Beauty basket: Elf wet gloss lash and brow mascara

photo from google

 yahhhhh I know it looks gross!! this is already my second tube and I'm running out already, so yah I I can't show a decent photo

If there's one ELF product that I definitely LOVE and would repurchase over and over again is the ELF wet gloss lash and brow mascara. It's true to its claim,tames the eyebrow and stays on whole day. I don't think Mac girl boy would still find its place on my wish list (ummm..yah as of this moment). I just wish elf would repackage and make it one whole tube without the lash mascara, I just find it blahhhh when used on my lashes. I swear it does nothing to my lashes,when I finished the brow one I end up using the tube for lashes on my brows too.


Keeps eyebrow in place
Stays all day
Doesn't flake
Keeps my brow in place without the sticky feeling
Doesn't have any weird scent/smell

Contains a little product( I consume the brow side for less than a month)

So if you're looking for an inexpensive brow gel, go for this. I highly recommend this to makeup enthusiasts who loves to use eyebrow mascara without spending too much.

FOTD- no makeup look

So I did my own version of the "no makeup look", basically I would wear this on a daily basis. Covering my zits or scars would be the one priority in achieving this kind of look. No heavy foundation needed,all you need is a concealer or a tinted moisturizer if you want to wear one,but in my case here I didn't use any bb cream, foundie or tinted moisturizer..concealer was the only thing I need to cover bumps. Here's the look

The look (this is an  unedited photo) you can actually see my darken pimple scar below my lips

Products used: 
Diorskin Forever skin- on daily basis I only use my fanny Serrano two cake or my MAC studio fix,but this Time I used my Diorskin compact
Mac lipstick in chatterbox 
Elf contouring blush and bronzing powder- one my favorite from ELF
Étude house brow pencil
ELF wet gloss lash and brow clear mascara
Maybelline magnum volume express mascara(waterproof)
NYX full coverage concealer

October/November favorites

Elizabeth Arden green tea spray- I remember liking this when I was in high school,and never had the chance to buy one for my self since
I find it pricey. When I was in duty free last month I saw this on sale and it was buy one take one,I know it's a good deal thats hard for me to pass out,so initially I grab one even though I already bought Victoria's secret colognes during that time.
Nwe the reason this is included on my monthly faves is because I love the light fresh citrusy smell it leaves my skin,lasting power is medium but I don't mind spraying on another layer after couple of hours.

Kabuki brush(unbranded)- bought this at landmark,and I initially fell in love with its super soft hair bristles,doesn't feel scratchy at all and most of all doesn't shed. Great for setting foundation and for applying bronzer. Ah yes this brush reminds me of Bobbie brown kabuki brush..slash half the price.

Étude house easy brow pencil in brown- matches my hair color and it's not too creamy or dry,just perfect for my brows

Wet n wild megalast lipstick in MAUVE OUTTA HERE,CHERRY PICKING and SMOKIN HOT PINK- the only lipstick I've been wearing nonstop for the last two months. Pigmentation is amazing,fairly long lasting and the price?? So cheapo.. Already have 6 colors from its line and I'll be adding more,preferably the nude one.

Suave 24 hour protection- the only reason I got this because of its apple scent. PERIOD!!

Elf wet gloss lash and brow mascara- this Is one of my favorite elf product,with it's super affordable price it does it's job perfectly. I love how it tamed my unruly eyebrows without budging.Stays on the whole day.

Nivea Sun Daily Face Fluid spf 30+ PA++
-Since this is fluid,the consistency is light and non sticky to the skin while leaves a dewy finish without looking oily at all

Follow up post on my wet n wild megalast lipstick craze. I got my order last month and it's been on my drafts for two weeks now. Finally a review on these babies.

If you've been reading my blog before I told you guys that I'm a fan of lipstick,especially matte and satin ones,I just can't get enough of them.
After reading and watching reviews about WnW ,finally I bought one and guess what I am really impressed by it.

I have to say this is one of my best buys,it's so inexpensive that you want to hoard all the Colors.
Color payoff is amazing and last me 3to 4 hours without eating or drinking. The consistency of the lipstick is quite dry because it's a matte finish so prior to application especially those who have dry lips be sure to moisturize lips for smooth and ease application.


If you noticed I got the colors that are somewhat similar to some Mac's lippies which I don't have yet, don't blink pink is similar to girl about town while pinkerbell (photo on my previous post)reminds me of viva glam nicki minaj

Overall I would rate this product 4.9/5, why not perfect??because the only thing I hate about the product is the  packaging,The lipstick end up nicking the lid of the tube because the lipstick Itself does not go completely into the tube and it's so fiddly. And one thing also is the plastic packaging is a pain,I was using using the lipstick for almost a week but I noticed that it looked all scratchy and the color changes into foggy! I really wish WnW will come up with better packaging.

Another EOTD post which I wore yesterday.. I was inspired to recreate this look while watching those Korean beauty gurus on YouTube on how to apply smokey on single lids/monolid.. This technique looks good on Asian women who has monolid.. The great thing here is that you don't need that much color on the eyes,black kohl pencil and black eyeshadow (preferably matte) and you're good to go create that not so overpowering smokey eye . Be sure to apply a good eye primer so you won't end up smudging your black eyeshadow.

My eyebrows look weird here! I prefer not to wear mascara and just curl lashes.But i suggest you wear one,I just don't feel like wearing one yesterday.
After applying shadow,be sure to apply concealer below the eyes to clean the edges,same goes with the eyebrow.

Phil-cosmetics expo 2012

How was your weekend??mine was pretty ok and happy..happy because I get to see my father after two months and second was I went to Phil-cosmetics expo. Though i wasn't able to hoard that much makeup because my kid was complaining why I brought him to that place and he was looking for toys (which of course wasn't available there at the mega trade). Two of my favorite online seller was digital traincase and makeup hub was there was there and of course bought something from them.

I should've brought extra money seeing all those makeups but then I just limit myself to budget. Too bad I wasn't able to see some of the beauty blogger coz I was too busy with the makeup and my kid too!! Haha nwe here are some of the photos that I took yesterday

June/July favorites

Hi everyone! Here's my June/July much as I want to post monthly Fave,I cannot do it simply because i almost have the same favorite product for 2 months or longer than that..

Skin 79 hot pink bb cream- i was lemming to get the regular size but it's always out of stock so instead I got two samples to test it if it will work for me and luckily I am loving this bb! It will take months before I give my honest review on this baby! (still waiting for my full size preorder)Yey!

Sigma f50-I got this brush two months ago but wasn't able to post any haul because I was too lazy to do so, nwe this is my first ever sigma brush (hehe) i super super love this brush. I used this to stipple my liquid foundie..

Elf flat powder brush- Love is all I can say!!! Bow!

Milani liquif'eye pencil in black- its a dupe for UD pencil but more creamy. when applied on the lids,it appears to be more like a gel/cream liner but in a pencil form.

Physiogel AI cream- I got this when my baby suffered from allergy and his face was so red but doesn't have bumps ,after using this for weeks my baby's face was back to normal. I tried using this on my face when I get my breakouts and voila my face doesn't appear to be reddish.I apply this before my sunblock and follow my regular makeup routine. The good thing here is that it doesn't irritate my skin at all and worst get another set of zits! Hurray for that!

Loreal perfecting base - a really good primer if you don't want to shell out some moolah on expensive brand like smashbox.. Doesn't cause any breakouts on me too! How good is that?!!

Elf lipstain in fashionista- inexpensive lipstain! It's a bright pink in color,the only thing I hate about this is that It bleeds and tend to get really dry after hours of wearing! Gross but still I love the color.

LIPSTICK OF THE WEEK- Estee Lauder pure color in NECTARINE

hello beautiful people!! good vibes good vibes.. starting this week I'll be featuring my very first lipstick of the week( so that I  can force myself to at least blog each week) I CANNOT BLOG EVERY DAY OR EVEN TWICE/THRICE A WEEK!! I just cannot do that..
If I can't make it to post weekly probably three times a month is fine.. ok i cheated i cannot even blog weekly!

why lipstick????? simply because I love lipstick.. besides my blog is entitled as lipstick and hijab! hahaha
really..if only I could pick one cosmetic that I cannot live without, its LIPSTICK!
I warned you though I don't have that MANY LIPSTICKS AS YOU CAN SEE ON SOME YOUTUBE gurus ok? 

The shade is warm orange-red side which I think complements well those who has fair skin, which is so not me!

I love the packaging!

swatch on my hand
when i saw the picture I was shocked to see gold pigments, it doesn't bother me though, I kinda like it!
 I didn't apply lip balm prior to application, but still my lips remains moisturized and well hydrated, thanks to its ingredient shea butter it may not be best when it comes to moisturizing but still glides on smoothly on the lips.Staying power is average, it fades a little after I ate lunch, still it leaves a a hint of color but not totally gone

sorry for the picture, I wasn't wearing any makeup at all when I took this photo and di ko feel ipakita ang feesshh ko,actually my nose was like soo big in this photo and no way I would show it to the world hahaha!

till next post!!

When it comes to foundation I choose carefully on what to buy, mainly because of my oily skin. Its really in the pain in the ass whenever I bought foundi that makes my skin more oily, I end up wasting money, I cannot give it either to my sister because they both have dry skin and of course they won't use this.What caught my attention in buying this because of the huge STAY MATTE written over the packaging,after reading positive and nega reviews I gave it a try, for drugstore brand its a bit cheaper too.

I got the shade 103 Ivory, I got the lighter shade but this doesn't bother me that much because the coverage is sheer, i have to squeeze in another round of foundation to cover my entire face.
Don't expect too much from this foundi, if you have dark spots, acne scars like me, I still rely on my trusty concealer.

it says fragrance free but I swear It has a certain smell that I cannot explain(smells like medicine to me), was it just me? or what??!! please do comment below if you tried this product..

info below

swatch on my hand
when blended
tadahhh, its so sheer
 my bare skin.. this was not edited at all.Taken with natural light. See all my flaws, big pores and yah oily skin.
 moi wearing the stay matte

This product is pretty decent enough, but i won't repurchase again. I'm still on constant research on foundi that won't oil that much. It doesn't lived up to it's promise, after 2 to 3 hours my face was crazy oily.. I need to blot blot and blot. 

what I like
light to medium coverage, almost sheer I guess which is good for everyday use
I got this for 450php which is fairly inexpensive

what I don't like
I find the product too watery or shall i say oily... i thought this was oil free?
not a fan of its smell, but fades after awhile though. Still I don't like it
I got bumps at the end of the day, so does that mean my skin hates this? aww crap, I'm not sure but I'll give this a chance.
doesn't keep me matte
I find it cakey
not available locally available

Would I recommend this product?
In all fairness yah.. if this thing didn't work for me it doesn't mean it won't work on you either ok?
