HAUL: Ever Bilena, Fashion 21, Maybelline, Etude House

I've just started to enter the makeup artistry industry. I'm now completing the tools and other stuff that a makeup artist should have. Recently, I've been trying on different types of makeups and different brands as well.

Here are my latest purchases:

They are just basically mascaras and lip products because I've been obsessed in collecting lipsticks and lip glosses recently.

The mascaras that I bought are Maybelline's Extreme Stiletto mascara and Etude House's Oh m'ye lash double up longlash. These are both in dry formula and they are both lengthening but the Extreme Stiletto works better if you really want to have an outcome of longer lashes. But Oh m'ye lash is okay, too, plus it's cheaper. It only costs 199 Php while the Extreme Stiletto costs 349 Php.

I fell in love with Ever Bilena's matte lipsticks. The quality is nice and it's actually affordable. It costs 135 Php each. The first EB matte lipsticks I purchased were Love That Red and Off Beat Pink. I bought them last October 2010. Then, when I entered the makeup industry, I decided to complete the matte lipstick collection of Ever Bilena. There are 12 shades (if I'm not mistaken) but sadly I only have 5 shades of them. Because I always stick to my budget, I decided to buy a few at a time. The latest EB matte lipsticks that I bought are Scarlet, Mirrored Mocha, and Mauvey. As expected, they are all awesome and really pigmented. However, mauvey comes out a little light since it's shade is close to a nude, natural color.

Here are the swatches:

I love them so much!

The last things that I bought are lip glosses. First is the Fashion 21 Colour Shine liquid lipstick. I have two of them. I actually bought the first one a month ago and it's the shade #9. I love it! It goes perfect over a pink and brown-ish shade of lipsticks. I thought this item is great so I bought another shade and it's the shade #3. It's red and I chose that shade because I love red. It's amazing because it's really pigmented. Fashion 21 Colour Shine liquid lipstick only costs 100 Php! I love them and they smell so sweet like candy! The next lip glosses that I bought are Ever Bilena's Advance smooth lips in Chocolate and Shimmering Mauve. They only cost 75 Php each! However, the shades are very light and sheer.

Here are the swatches:

As you can see in the picture above, the Fashion 21 Colour Shine liquid lipsticks are more pigmented than Ever Bilena's Advance Smooth Lips.

Here are the complete lip products I've mentioned:

And that's all of it!

Stay awesome my dear dudettes! :)

Makeup inspired by Preview Magazine Cover June 2011 issue

and this is my version of it:

So, I was at the mall with my mom and my my boyfriend a couple of days ago when I saw the June issue of Preview magazine in a bookstore. It immediately caught my eye and my attention, not because of the headlines but because of the people featured in the cover and they are the Island girls: Heart Evangelista, Solenn Heussaff, Lovi Poe, and Marian Rivera (Temptation Island). I thought they were all beautiful in that shot. I loved their makeup so I bought it!
This month’s cover inspiration of the Preview magazine is RETRO ROMANCE. They were all wearing Marc Jacobs’ S/S 2011 collection which are actually influenced by the ’70s. Flowers pinned on the side of the head ala Ali MacGrawfor the hair (perfect for the ’70s) and deep purple tones on the lids and bright red for lips for the makeup. I just fell in love with their looks so I decided to create a look just like theirs.

Here is the cover of the Preview mag June 2011 issue:

- Tony Moly’s liquid foundation
- ELF tone correction concealer
- ELF two-way cake foundation (used as a powder)
- ELF clarifying pressed powder
- Dollface Cosmetic’s vanity palette (for blush and contour)
- Dollface Cosmetic’s vanity palette
- drugstore eye shadow palette
- Ever Bilena’s black eye liner
- Maybelline eye studio gel eye liner
- Maybelline Extreme Stiletto mascara
- Ever Bilena’s lip liner in red
- Ever Bilena’s matte lipstick in Love That Red
- Fashion 21 Colour Shine liquid lipstick #3
- Wet n’ Wild lipstick 508A

Stay awesome my dear dudettes!
