My Makeup Collection (Part 1)


Okay, so last Friday I asked you guys if you wanted to see a “Makeup Collection” and freelance makeup kit blog entry; and some of you guys liked that post. So now I’m doing it! Okay, so I also recently did a decluttering post I called the “Makeup Purge“there are a lot of makeup that I managed to get rid of in that post; which directly affected the amount of makeup that I’ll be showing you here. Also there is no way in fucking hell that I am bragging about the shit I’m going to show you, because again these products are very cheap and my collection is very small compared to other bloggers out there.

So without further bullshit here they are!


Like what I said… Not that impressive. My storage is actually pretty damn simple, bordering mediocre in some way; I have a big tupperware where I store my palettes, highlighters, blushes and loose eyeshadows; and I also have three smaller ones, one for my smaller eyeshadow palettes duos and singles,one for my face powders and powder foundations, and one for my eye products that isn’t eyeshadow. I also have two bags, one is for my lip products and the other is for cream products.

(Please click the pictures to know what’s in there)

Now let’s go to the products; let’s start with the lips. 😀

So far these are all the lip products I own, and they all fit nicely inside this clear bag. The photo on the top right are the products I own that are either fake/replica or old but has a sentimental value, the one on the bottom are genuine products that I could use, on clients. Also, I really don’t know why, but I forgot to take out the fake mac lipstick on the bottom right part, but it shouldn’t have been there it should be together with the other replicas on the top right side.

Here are all of my face powders and powder foundations. None of them are replicas, but a lot of them has to be replaced soon. I do use all of them, some on myself and some on clients so I’ll be more surprised if they are in pristine condition.

These are all of my smaller palettes, singles and duos, again none of them are replicas, but the three six pans on the photo on the right are very cheap. My Max Factor duo and my Mac shadows are here as well.


Here are all of my eye and brow liners, brow powders, cream liners, mascaras, brow gel/mascaras and my lash glue. The picture on the upper left are the products that I could use on my clients and the bottom right are either old with a sentimental value or a replica(I only own one replica eyeliner though…). I also own some eyeshadow pencils that I use as eye bases. And just so you know, I do not own any fake/replica mascara; since that type of product is too damn close to my eyes.


Eyebrow powders from Ashley Shine and Avon, Annabelle eyeliner in Metal Daze, 2 Allue eyeliners, 2 ADS Cream Eyeliner, 2 Avon Mascaras, 3 Ashley Shine brow gels/mascaras, A & W Clear Mascara/Brow Gel, My Eyelash glue, San san eyeliner pen, Ashley Shine liquid eyeliner, 4 Baolishi Eyeliner duos that I use as bases over my eye primer, MeNow Green eyeshadow pencil, 2 San san Kohl liners, Avon Glimmerstick eyeliner in Lime Sensation,a Fake Mac liner in Sky Blue, a cheap Qiaoer eyeliner in dark green.

(all of the eye products; properly arranged)

Here are all of cream products,from eye bases to bb creams to concealers to primers… they are here. From that cheap concealer palette to my concealer wheel. to my foundations, they are all here, I also do not own any fake/replica foundation and I do not plan on trying one ever. I have foundations for every skintone I see here in the Philippines.However I do not use that blue concealer quad from Cadette, because that thing is old as fuck and I only keep it because it’s from my grandma.


Now for the fun part; the big box. This box contains my bigger palettes as well as my colored face products like blush.


2 Ashley Shine highlight 3d palettes, Kiss Beauty PRO Shimmer palette, a Clinique duo eyeshadow, a MonaLiza Collection Blush, a San san champagne collection blush mosaic, a San san Rosanne Collection blush, a CCV cosmetics blusher, ABH Illuminator replica, an Allue Pretty Cheeks Blush duo.

Here are my highlighters, blushes, and face palettes. The only replica here is the Anastasia Illuminator that I reviewed a week ago.


LOL eyeshadow palette in Neon Lights, 3 Avon True Color Quads, a NYC Individualeyes palette, Ever Bilena 12 pan palette, an Allue eyeshadow trio, Avon 8 pan palette in “the Greens”, Qianyu Eyeshadow Palette.

Here are my medium sized eye palettes, I do not use the ones with broken packaging like the 12pan one and that trio; those two are my very first palettes, my mom bought that trio for me in 2009 or 2010, and I bought the 12 pan one on the new year’s day of 2012. I keep both for sentimental reasons only.


JeColor Eye and cheek palette, Avon Over Nature Palette.

Now here are my makeup palettes; or my palettes that has something else other than eyeshadow. I used to have a lot of these types; but I gave them away, I gave three away on my decluttering back in 2015 and I gave one away in my makeup purge.


Allue roll-on shimmer eyeshadow, Aily roll-on eyeshadow, 2 Aily loose eyeshadows.

Now, here are all of my loose eyeshadows; two in roll-on form, two in pots. I have a pale blue one, a metallic blue, a gold and a silver one.


Kat Von D Shade + Light eye palette replica, The Balm Nude Dude Replica, e.l.f Little Black Beauty Book Day Edition, L.A. Girl Beauty Brick Eyeshadow Collection in Nudes.

And here are my bigger palettes, the two on top are replicas, the one on the bottom left is a real, genuine as fuck e.l.f. palette that I got from SM, the one on the bottom right is a bit questionable though since I got it from the same place I got the fake Anastasia liquid lipstick, it’s an L.A. Girl Beauty Brick Palette in Nudes… but that place has real Jordana lipsticks though and they did not advertise this palette as SG authentic, which they always do with their other replica palettes. This palette also smells the same as my NYC palette which my grandma sent me from the U.S.A, but I’m still a bit unsure so I’m going to swatch  the tester I saw at SM and I’m going to compare. I’ll give you an update on this one.

Also as you can see; all of my bigger palettes are nudes; but the rest that I own are all very fun and colorful. I don’t really know how to explain that as well, it just happened.

Now let’s move to brushes;most of the brushes I own came in sets of 5 or more. I only have a few singles.

Here are my brushes, the ones that I already used are gathered in a fox candy tin can that I recycled, because why the fuck not? The rest are either in a brush roll or an organizer bag.  As you can see my lash curler and my hair cutting scissors are in the tin can too, just so I can find them easily.

I also put other tools in bags, I have my powder puffs and blending sponges in a double sided bag, the other side holds my puffs and my disposable sponges, and the other side holds my blending sponges. And as you can see my blending sponges are quite dirty because I used them on clients the other day and they need to be washed.

So just to make this post shorter, I’ll cut it here, this will be just my “makeup collection post” my kit preparation and freelance details will be on another post, which will serve as a part 2.

Also if you have any questions, you can comment down below or message me on my facebook page that you can visit by clicking “here“.

So that’s all for now folks and see you all later! 😀


Just Some Cheap Makeup

Okay, you guys know that I like buying very cheap makeup in gift shops and bargain stores; these are not fake products though; but just some cheap made in China stuff. I know that the Philippines and China have a feud right now, but hey Filipino business owners already paid for these items, I’m buying them from Filipino sellers who pays taxes to our government and I am not mad at China, most Filipinos have the same sentiments, but I think China really hates us though… and If they wage war against us… we are fucked, big time; the military power of my country is next to bullshit.

Now setting that aside, I have bought and tried a lot of cheap makeup in the past, I’ve even tried a lot of counterfeit and replica items, Mostly eyeshadows, eyeliners and lip products. I rarely buy cheap foundation and concealers because that thing is pretty close to my skin I rarely buy mascaras too because that shit is too close to my eyes.

Now here are some stuff I bought recently:

So, I got these nice Meis palettes, these are all mattes and I’m loving them, I got the numbers 01(The pastels), 04(the warmer nudes) and 05(the cooler nudes). These are actually good and I’m going to review them later after this post! 🙂

Again, another thing that I need to review, this is a JECOLOR eye and cheek palette. I really fucking like this, the real star here are the blushes, but the eye shades are good too, I was actually originally going for the palette that has red, gold and orange eye shades, but it was sold out when I came back, I still like this one though.

This is an ADS gel eyeliner duo, it came with a black gel liner with two brushes that are actually usable and quite good. The eyeliners are a little bit disappointing though, because they don’t set, they do not dry. You need to set it with an eyeshadow if you want to use it on your lids, but you can use them for other things too, I used them for my brows when I recreated the “Instagram eyebrows” that I posted on my personal facebook page.

it looked like this:


Not too bad eh…

I also got two MeNow Generation II True Lips lip liners,  I like them, they are good. I have three actually and I think I should review them too.

I gotta say, all of these are a bargain for the price I paid for them and all of these are under Php60.00 (Usd1.27) each. And they work really well for their price.

So, that’s all for now folks and see you all later! 😉

Tutorial: Glam Makeup on a Budget! :-D

Okay, here I am blogging again after I woke up… Don’t judge me I was up for 31 hours straight before I slept a while ago 🙂 so now I’m up again like a ball of energy! (just kidding I still wanna sleep. -_- It’s only 11:39 pm and I slept at like 7:45 pm-ish)

Right now, I’ll give you the step by step, steps ( 😛 ) in making/doing this makeup look that I posted on YouTube a while ago, if you want to watch (my crappy way of makeup application 😉 ) it click “here”.

I posted a video since my friend and a reader Ate (an honorific used in the Philippines for addressing your older sister, or a friend who’s older than you 😀 ) Paula, requested one. Believe it or not, I posted a video way back in December about my review on the Avon Fold-up Palette, which is Avon Philippines’ holiday palette for 2013. I since put it on private since the quality is really not good. 😦

What is this video all about? It’s about doing a glamorous makeup, but under a budget. n this video I used two very affordable brush sets, it’s up to you on which one you would prefer, since you can do this look even with just one of these brush sets, or whatever brushes that you have. It also features affordable makeup that even a student like me can afford without breaking the bank too much.

So now let’s proceed to the more detailed steps on this particular thing:

EYES: (as usual, I did my eyes first)

Step 1: Use a sticky eyeshadow base. (I used L.A. Colors wet to dry cream foundation) So why do you need to use a sticky base rather than a regular base, a white one, just a primer or nothing at all. Let’s admit it some of these cheaper eyeshadows has crazy fall-outs, but not impossible to work with. Another way of working with these shadows is by using them wet.

Step 2: Apply a bright pink shadow all-over your lid (I used the pink shadow on my San san makeup set in No. 3). I know that some girls are afraid of brights, for their eye makeup, and I know that pink specially a bright cool toned pink or hot pink is really intimidating. But trust me, if you wear it with neutrals, you can rock pink shadows even in the middle of the afternoon, not just for this glam makeup (which most will probably use for night makeup).

Step 3: Apply a neutral color, (which in my case a reddish brown by Nichido called Raisin Wine) on your crease. If you do not have a crease brush, you can apply it using a small paddle brush, and just blend it out using a blending brush.

Step 4: Blend the outer edges of the brown using a windshield wiper motion. And a little bit of circular motion and  windshield wiper motion to blend the two colors for a smoother transition. Two blocks of color on top of each other WILL look funny, so please blend them out. (Maybe in the future I will show you how to make a complete eyeshadow look using just a paddle brush and a sponge tip applicator… how does that sound? 😀 )

Step 5: Take a dark metallic color, (like San san’s Ash Gray) and use a pencil brush/ outer-v brush to map your outer corners. If you don’t have both like the person in the video (me) then use a CLEAN lip brush to do the same thing, then just blend it out thoroughly.

Step 6: Line your lower lash-line using the same dark metallic color. You can use either the same lip brush or an angled brush.

Step 7: Line your lower waterline with black pencil eyeliner. (I used my San san black kohl liner)

Step 8: A pencil eyeliner is very versatile. You can use it to up to 4 different types of usage: 1) As a lower lash-line/waterline liner, 2) To line your upper lash-line, 3) For your brows (but set it with something), 4) For lip liner. So, use the same eyeliner you used for your lower waterline to your upper lash-line. Make little dots or lines and then connect them with each other. You can also do a cat eye if you want.

Step 9: Curl your lashes, then apply generous coats of black mascara, pick a mascara that either lengthens or voulumizes, I used something for lengthening (San san Long Lash Mascara), You can use regular or waterproof, but I used waterproof since waterproof is known to hold curls better.

Step 10: (Optional) Line your upper waterline with the same liner.

Step 11: Highlight your brow bone and inner corners using a slightly shimmery white shadow (I used the white shadow on my San san makeup set in No. 3). Apply it on your brow bone using a sponge tip applicator, a small fluffy brush, or the lip brush you used for your outer corners, but please wipe it off clean first. And apply it to your inner corners using your lip brush or your fingers.

(You could use false lashes too if you have one)


FACE: (Before you put makeup on your face, please make sure that all of the fall-outs and oils were cleaned off your face.)

Step 1: Prime the face with a primer, to help control oils and matify the skin. (I used Beauty Treats L.A. Makeup Primer) apply little dots first then blend it out using a sponge, a brush, or your CLEAN hands.  But one of the tricks I’ve learned is to use baby powder for substitute if you do not have a primer, just apply a very thin layer evenly all-over your face before applying foundation.

Step 2: Apply your foundation (I used San san HD foundation in Olive since out of the three available shades it’s the closest to my skin tone),  first apply small/big dots all-over the face and neck. Then blend it out by using  a sponge, a brush, or your CLEAN hands.

Step 3: Blot the excess oil (Even if it says “oil free” it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t contain even a single trace of oil) on your foundation by using a tissue paper.

Step 4: Apply some concealer (I used San san HD concealer in Olive) on your problem areas (Mine are my under eye area, red cheeks nose and forehead). Blend it out using a sponge or your ring finger.

Step 5: Again blot out excess oil using tissue paper.

Step 6: Apply some powder (I used the powder on my San san makeup set in No. 3) to set the foundation. The shade will depend on the color of your foundation. If you used a foundation that is too dark, use a lighter powder, if it’s too light use a darker powder, if the foundation is right use a translucent powder or the same shade as your foundation. You can use a brush or a puff to apply the powder (put some powder on your ears too, to even the colors out).

Step 7: (I’ll put it here even though I did it after the lips in the video) Apply a very light coral shade (I used the light coral blush on my San san makeup set in No. 3) on your cheeks.

Step 8: Apply a shimmery light pink (If your skin is fair-medium, a deeper shade of pink if your skin tone is medium to dark) blush (I used the light pink blush on my San san makeup set in No. 3) on the cheekbones only.

(I didn’t do any contours because remember we are on a budget)


Step 1: Use a something to moisturize your lips, like a lip balm (I used my Maybelline Baby Lips in Anti-oxidant Berry), Vaseline or petroleum jelly, or any type of food grade oil like coconut oil. Just use a very small amount though.

Step 2: Use a nude (I used my San san Age Defense lipstick in number 3) or a neutral pink shade for the lips, since we want the drama and attention centered  on the eyes.

Step 3: (optional) Use a clear (I used San san Lip Color Duo in Really Red, I used the clear side of the duo), or a glittery light pink or nude lip gloss to add shine and glossiness to your lips. 🙂
