My Makeup Collection (Part 1)

 WARNING: MY MAKEUP COLLECTION IS NOT THAT IMPRESSIVE; IT IS CHEAP BUT I SAVED AND WORKED HARD FOR EVERY SINGLE ITEM HERE. PLEASE DON’T JUDGE. ALSO  I DO HAVE A BUNCH OF FAKE/REPLICA MAKEUP THAT I WILL FEATURE IN HERE, BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT I ENCOURAGE ANYONE TO BUY ANY OF THEM, I DO NOT ENCOURAGE ANY OF READERS TO BUY OR USE ANY REPLICA/FAKE PRODUCTS. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO USE OR TRY THEM, THEN DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.

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.

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.

Photo5177

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.

Photo5176

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! 😀

2016 Look no. 2: Brown Smokey Eyes (With Tutorial)

as usual you’ll see my winged liner here… I like winged liners… wings wings wings…

I’ve always been a fan of dark lips; unfortunately dark lips can look disastrous if you paired/coordinated it with the wrong eyeshadow combo, most of the time you just need to pair it with a toned down eye look… But sadly, I really don’t like that look; if I have a choice and the time, I’ll wear smokey eyes and over the top looks!

I even wear purple lipsticks to church. Don’t judge me, the older ladies there already do. 😉

So here, I did a smokey eye with a dark lip… you can always pair it with a different lip color, so don’t worry.

The first thing I did was the brows. I’m not really a fan of brow pencils… I know back in the days I always use pencils; but I realized that they do not give me the look that I want. So, I switched to powders.

Here I used two cheap-ass products; one is a brow kit/duo from Ashley Shine Cosmetics, the other is a clear mascara from A & W Cosmetics. The brush I used is the brow brush from the L.A. Girl Essential Makeup brush set.

The first thing I did is I prep my brows using the clear mascara; I let that set for a moment, then I proceed with the powders; I used the lighter one in the inner half, while I use the darker one on the tail.

Then I primed my eyes; I used the salmon corrector on my concealer wheel, since my lids are actually a little dark in real life and I do not want any of those darkness peeking through my shadow. Then I set that with a light yellow-toned eyeshadow to further hide the darkness and to make blending easier. The Eyeshadow is a San San CYO Eyeshadow in Soft Sun Glow, the brush is the eyeshadow brush from the same L.A. Girl brush set.

Now let’s go to the longest part of this post a.k.a the main event. The Eyeshadow. I used the darker brown shade from my Ever Bilena Matte Eyeshadow trio in tango, on my crease, then I blended that out with my Sigma P82 replica, then I took that lightest shade from an Avon 8-pan palette called the Greens, it is a white shade with gold shimmers, I applied that as a brow bone and inner corner highlight using my Ever Bilena small eyeshadow brush. Then I took the second to the lightest shade of the palette and I used that on the inner half of the lid. Then I took the dark metallic brown shade and used it on the outer half, I used two brushes from A & W, 007 and 008 respectively.

Then I blend the shades out using my Nichido brush no. 235 which is a tapered blending brush. after that I took my Nichido True Colors eyeshadow in Raisin wine, I applied that to my outer corner using an Avon lip brush that I use as a smudge/outer corner brush, and I blended the shade upwards towards the crease. Then I blended all the harsh lines with the same Nichido brush.

Then I went back to that dark metallic brown shade from the Avon palette; and I applied that on my lower lash line using a think angled brush from Avon.

Now For the liner; I used a cheap liner from a brand called Andrea Secret, yes no ‘s on that name. I got a duo that has a liquid liner side and a white retractable eyeliner. Of course I used the liquid side to create my winged liner. Then I used an itty-bitty Avon Simply Pretty Eyeliner pencil in black on my lower waterline.

Then it’s time for the face makeup… What I did here is not really my usual routine, but since it’s cold, and it the worship service I’ll be attending was the early morning one; by early morning I mean 5:30am. I thought that I’ll be able to pull off some liquid foundation! And I did pull it off thank you very much.

First I took three shades of concealers, well, two of them are correctors from my concealer wheel, the green toned corrector, the yellow-toned corrector and the lighter concealer shade. I used the yellow one on my under eye area, going down to my cheeks in an inverted triangle shape. Next I use the green one to correct the redness on my face. I blended the yellow one using my Sigma P80 replica and I used the Sigma P86 replica to blend the green one since I also did put some of those on the sides of my nose. Then I covered them up with lighter concealer from the wheel and blended the same areas with the same brushes.

After that I took two pumps of my San san HD foundation in Olive, that amount is enough to cover my face, neck and chest. I dotted it using clean fingers all over those areas, slightly avoiding that triangle I made earlier, then I blended that with a damp blending sponge from San san.

Then I set the under eye area with a yellow toned powder from the Ashley Shine Highlight 3D palette in no. 1, I applied the powder using the Sigma P88 replica, then I set the whole face using my San San Pressed Powder in no. 4 which I applied using a powder puff; I used patting motions to apply that powder.

I’m pretty sure that you are wondering why I am using a shade of foundation that is too light for me. Well, it is because that shade is the darkest shade available in San San’s whole line of cosmetics. To be honest most Filipino brands don’t even release any foundation as dark as that, this one is actually the darkest I found so far. As for powders, there are some that has a shade that is close to mine, but those are from brands that I cannot afford yet… and they are not really local.

I took the darker brown shade from the Ashley Shine Highlight 3D palette and I lightly contoured my cheekbones, nose, chin and forehead, I used a Noconi angled face brush to do that. Then I used the yellow shade again (but you can also use the white one) to highlight below my cheekbone contour, the center of my forehead and my nose; I used a very small blush brush from Allue. Then I blended my face and forehead area using a San San powder brush, then I blended the nose area using the Sigma P82 replica.

After that I took my San San blush mosaic in RSVPink and I used the blush shade for blush (duh…) and then highlight shade there to highlight my cheeks and my cupid’s bow. I used an Avon blush brush and a fan brush that I got cheaply… I do not know the brand. -_-

For the lips I used a Fake MAC lip liner that I am testing out in  a wine/brownish red color and a San San Creamy Matte (This is not matte!!!) in Really Red. I used some Avon Aero Volume Mascara in Black on the lashes and then I got ready for church! 😀

I didn’t use false lashes because I was in a hurry; but if I had the time, I would have used these:

By the way; you can use whatever product you already have for this look, the products are not really necessary. 😀

Thank you for reading, have a nice day and see you all later! 😀

 

May-June Collective haul!

Okay, welcome to another post(which should have been posted last Monday evening or Yesterday)! Back in Monday, I did a post; which is a first impression and unboxing of  a product included in this haul. You can click “here” if you want to see that.

Disclaimer: I didn’t buy all of these things in one go. I saved money to get them. Yep, I do know how to save my money (my mom, brother and grandma, doesn’t believe it though T-T ).

Let’s go with the haul!

DSC_0370

these are the all the things I got… not much but trust me, it’s a good thing that I didn’t get all of them in one go.

Okay here is the list of everything.

  • Top, extreme left is an AVON Extra Lasting eyeliner in Shimmering Storm (a navy blue eyeliner)
  • Beauty Treats L.A. Makeup Primer
  • AVON Over Nature Lipstick in Tropical Coral
  • AVON Over Nature Makeup Palette in Garden Voyage
  • Bottom, left is L.A. Girl 5 piece Essential Brush set
  • AVON Fab 5 piece brush set with pouch
  • e.l.f. Little Black Beauty Book Day Edition
  • (I forgot to include it in the photo) e.l.f.  Blending Eye Brush

So now I’m gonna discuss everything briefly. I won’t go into too much detail with everything since I might post a review for each item.

Swatches will be up in my Swatch Bank in a week’s time.

Now let’s go to the first item.

AVON Extra Lasting eyeliner in Shimmering Storm

DSC_0381

This little girl here has 2.5 ml of product, it has an applicator that looks really identical to the applicator of NICHIDO precise mineral liner, now that I think about it… It’s a navy blue liner, it’s not waterproof, not smudge proof and it’s not that long lasting, since it only lasts for about three to four hours, but still good (update 9/30/15: Not really, right now I do not think that the price I paid for it is worth it… the quality of this mofo sucks, but I did find a way to use it and make it last though, I set it with a blue shadow…). The real reason why I got this is because I need a blue liner and I like the shade of blue that this product has and the blue is shimmery! I don’t have the money at the time so I just ordered this one since you can pay it in installment for a month (You can pay the AVON lady weekly or daily). The cost of this product varies from campaign to campaign (I forgot the price I got it for, already (it’s fucking Php299.00… 299 Damn it!) :-D).

The next thing on the list is the Beauty Treats L.A. Makeup Primer that I got at the department store of SM City Calamba.

DSC_0375

This primer is really nice for the price that it came for, this is my go to primer right now. The only con I saw with one was the cap it has (that I lost already) since it’s very useless; it doesn’t cover the pump properly, since that part where the product comes out is totally exposed. This baby retails for Php129.00

Next is AVON Over Nature Lipstick in Tropical Coral.

DSC_0402

I like this lipstick. That’s all I’m going to say. BTW I got this one last Friday, and so far it doesn’t disappoint. If you want details about this one, just read the review I made about it ( 😛 ). (update: it still doesn’t disappoint)

The one after that is the AVON Over Nature Makeup Palette

DSC_0358

To me… this product is good. Not the best but it’s good enough, if you have the money, go ahead and buy it, but if you don’t just skip it, you don’t need it that much in your life.

(The two Over Nature collection products have a review, BTW just like the eyeliner both of these could be payed by installment.)

Next one is the L.A Girl 5 piece Essential Brush set.

DSC_0374

This one retails for about  Php400.00 to Php500.00. And this baby have really awesome quality for the price. The pouch is great too. 😉

The one after that is the AVON Fab 5 piece brush set with pouch.

DSC_0391

I got it for Php99.00, but it’s regular price is Php399.00 (which in my opinion, is too much to pay for this particular set). I got this baby the same time I got the eyeliner, during the time I was looking for the AVON mineral dual-ended brush that I have been wanting for a while, I was willing to pay full price for it, but sadly it was out of stock. So I got what was available, and to my luck, the price was marked down to Php99.00. I’ll make a full review on this, so you’ll know why I think that Php399.00 is too  much.

Next one is the e.l.f. Little Black Beauty Book Day Edition.

DSC_0384

I got this together with the L.A Girl brush set. Sadly, I do not think that this is still available online, I think, this was a limited edition version of this line, since the only versions available on the e.l.f. site were the warm and cool editions, but who knows maybe it’s still available in stores or some other shops online. I got this for Php399.00, and it is the last one available in the SM Calamba department store. This baby is a little bit hit and miss, mostly hits though, so that’s cool :-D.

The next one is the e.l.f. Blending Eye Brush.

DSC_0395

I got this little girl from SM department store, the same time I got the Beauty Treats makeup primer. At the time I was looking for a proper blending brush. Since the blending brush I was using from my San san brush set looks and works more like an eyeshadow brush than a blending one… this baby however resembles a crease brush a little bit, but still does a really great job in blending eyeshadows. 😉

So that’s all for this haul and see you guys later! 🙂
