Huge AVON Haul

This post is way long overdue but I decided to still blog about it because it's worth raving (and bragging) for. Hihi! Last month, I won the Avon You Make It Beautiful Blogger Challenge along with 19 other fellow beauty bloggers and now, we are already part of the Avon Makeup Council. Yey!!! You can read all about my Avon story here. :)

So, this haul post will have two parts. Let's start first with the products that I received for our Avon final challenge entry. Here are the products that I got and FYI, we didn't get the chance to pick the products of our own choice. They just had us randomly pick a loot bag and we didn't have any idea what's inside. So here's mine:

1. Avon Ideal Luminous Dual Powder Foundation in Natural Beige (P515.00)
     - I didn't get to use this in my entry because the powder is darker than my skin color and it's a bit pinkish, too but I think the texture is silky and very fine.

2. Avon Glimmersticks Brow Definer in Soft Black (P250.00)
     - Like the dual powder, I also didn't use this in my final look because it's in black and I have hazel blonde hair so I thought I would look a little funny. But I like that it's retractable and has good pigmentation.

3. Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black (P250.00)
     - I used this liner for my entry to create that sexy smokey look and I love its texture because it glides on smoothly and has good color payoff as well.

4. Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Chocolate Sensation (P449.00)

     - Now, I thought this is one of the best palettes that I've seen! I love every shades and the pigmentation of the eye shadows are commendable. The palette is a mix of satin, metallic, and matte eye shadows. I was actually really happy when I found out that this is the palette that I got for my final challenge entry! :)

5. Avon Supershock Max Mascara (P420.00)

     - I don't know about you but I actually love its fat and thick wand! What's interesting is that, even though the wand is huge, the bristles are short and tiny so it does a good job in separating my eyelashes and adding more volume. Love it!

6. Avon Ideal Luminous Blush in Rose Luster (P370.00)

     - This blush is really pigmented but to be honest, it's nothing out of the ordinary.

7. Avon Ultra Color Lipsticks in Knockout Pink and Hibiscus (P379.00)

     - Of course, my favorite part of this haul --- the lipsticks!!! We all got 2 tubes of lipsticks and what I got are the shades Knockout Pink (left) and Hibiscus (right). I like the shade Hibiscus better but I chose Knockout Pink for my entry because it matches my sultry look much better. :)

8. Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss in Mauve Movement (P299.00)

     - I'm not a big fan of lip glosses and the only lip glosses that I love are the ones from Careline, NYX and Glory of New York and after trying out this Ultra Glazewear lip gloss, I guess you can also include Avon in the list. *wink*

These are all the stuff that I got for the final challenge entry and if you want to see the look that I came up with using these makeups, watch this video:

Since we won the Avon You Make It Beautiful Blogger Challenge, we were given the chance to join the makeup workshop with Ms. Lauren Andersen, Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist!!! It was such an honor to be in that makeup workshop. We learned a lot from the gorgeous and very talented Lauren.

Ms. Lauren Andersen answering questions and giving extra tips and tricks.

With the beautiful and gorgeous Lauren Andersen! :)

Yey! I got my certificate! :)

This was our table. Actually, there should be only two persons per table that's why only two sets of makeup were arranged. Since I was late, I had to join my fellow beauty bloggers who were already seated and they were Clar and Say! The makeup goodies on the table were meant to be used for the makeup workshop and then after that, we had the privilege to take home the products! Since I was not really supposed to be seated on Clar and Say's table, Ms. Mara of Avon Philippines just gave me the products from their own table. :)

These are the stuff that I got!

I know, that's a lot!!! Yey!!!

1. Avon Ideal Luminous Dual Powder Foundation in Natural Beige (P515.00)

     - Yep, I got another one of this.

2. Avon Ideal Luminous Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation (P499.00)

3. Avon Ideal White Liquid Foundation in Beige Ochre (P395.00)

4. Avon Ideal White Pressed Powder in Natural (P395.00)

5. Avon Skin Goodness BB Cream in Nude (P399.00)

6. Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quads in Vibrant Spice and Purple Pop (P449.00)
     - More eyeshadow palettes!!!

7. Avon Supershock Max Mascara (P420.00)
     - More mascaras!!! :)

8. Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Glosses in Mauve Movement and Pink Watermelon (P299.00)
     - More lip gloss!!! :)

9. Avon Ultra Color Lipsticks in Dream Fuchsia, Lava Love, and Crush (P379.00)
     - and MORE LIPSTICKS!!! :-D

THAT'S IT! Thank you so much to Avon Philippines for choosing me to be a member of the Avon Makeup Council and again, congratulations to my fellow beauty bloggers who also got in! I can't wait for our next tasks! :)

Local Products I Recommend

Hi everyone!

Last week, I've uploaded a 2-part video featuring my recommended products from our local brands here in the Philippines. The reason why I decided to share those products is because I think we have tons of good-quality local products that need to be recognized more. From foundations, to powders to lipsticks --- there are awesome products from our local brands such as Fashion 21, Ever Bilena, FS Cosmetics and more.

The video was divided into two because it took me about 26 minutes to finish talking about my recommended local products! The first part is all about foundations, concealers, powders, and blushes.


1. San San Matte Liquid Foundation
     - I love this product because it provides a good coverage and has a smooth finish but it won't require you to spend a lot since it only costs PhP140.00! It comes in 4 different shades and it's available in all HBC outlets.

2. Ever Bilena Whitening BB Cream

     - This may not suit all skin colors because it's only available in one shade but I recommend this to those who have light skin colors like me. I love its coverage and how it makes my face look flawless. I always get compliment every time I use this and they get surprised all the time to find out that it's from our local brand. This BB cream is too yellowish though so be careful in using and blending it out. This is for only PhP198.00. For more info, watch my review here.


1. Fashion 21 Perfect Stick with Tea Tree Oil

     - This concealer stick from Fashion 21 is also available in their regular form, the one without tea tree oil , but I chose this one mainly because of its texture. It glides on smoothly and it has a cream to powder finish so it is definitely perfect for my oily-combination skin. It works well on people with really oily skin, too. It has a light to medium coverage so it's perfect for everyday use as well plus it's very convenient to use since it's in a stick form. Only PhP195.00 from Fashion 21 counters at all leading department stores nationwide. Read my review here.

2. San San Concealer
     - This creamy concealer works for all skin types. It is creamy but it doesn't crease as much as the other local concealers (based on personal experience). It provides medium to full coverage and it's really affordable for only PhP110.00!


1. Fashion 21 Loose Powder
    - This powder provides amazing coverage! The powder is finely milled so it gives a very flawless and smooth finish. What I also love about this product is its powder puff because it's not like other powder puffs and sponges that you can't even use. The powder puff that comes with this powder is very sturdy and helps in a fuller and smoother application. This is for only PhP150.00 and can already last you for years!!!

2. Fashion 21 Two Way Cake with Milk Moisturizers

     - This is my most favorite pressed powders among all the powders from our local brands! The texture is very silky and smooth and it stays on for long hours, too. Fashion 21 Two Way Cakes are available in 4 different variants and if you want to know more about it, click here for my review. :)

3. FS Cosmetics Two Way Cakes

     - The FS Cosmetics two way cakes also provide good coverage but I like the texture of the Fashion 21 Two Way Cakes better because they are silkier and more affordable. However, FS cosmetics offers a wider range of shades of their powders and they even have shades that you can use for contouring which are the shades Rajah and Fantasia. I have collected all of the shades and they are a big help especially on my makeup gigs. Review here.


1. Ever Bilena Single Blush-On and Cheek Blush
     - What I love about the Ever Bilena blushes is that they are available in tons of different shades from light pinks to deep berry shades to brown shades. The texture is not chalky unlike other local blushes and they stay on for long hours, too.

2. Careline Oil-Control Single Blush-On
     - Perfect for makeup beginners, especially for teenagers because the coverage is sheer. It just adds a hint of color and life on your face plus it's definitely budget-friendly for only PhP85.00!

3. Shawill Collagen Rosy Touch Blusher

     - The reason why I love this blush is because of its smooth and silky texture. I love how it looks really matte but gives you this healthy glow on your skin! This is for only PhP65.00. Read my review here.

Okay, let's now move on to the second part of the video wherein I featured different eyeliners, eye shadows, eyebrow pencils, lipsticks, and a few makeup tools.


1. San San Age Defense Liquid Eyeliner
     - I have tried different local liquid eyeliners but this is my most favorite because the applicator is more sturdy, good color payoff, waterproof, smudgeproof, and it doesn't rubberize unlike other annoying liquid eyeliners.

2. FS Cosmetics Felt Tip Liner
     - I have really oily lids that's why I always stick with liquid dip eyeliners. The FS cosmetics Felt Tip Liner is one of my favorites because even though it comes in a pen form, it doesn't really transfer on my lids and it doesn't smudge plus the color payoff is commendable.

3. Shawill Pretty Color Eyeliner
    - If you're looking for good quality yet affordable colored liners, visit Shawill counters and check out their Pretty Color eyeliners! Available in different beautiful shades and they also have glitter liners for only PhP98.00!


1. Nichido Mineral Kohl Pencil in Onyx
     - This is one of the best eye pencils that I've tried from our local brands because it is very pigmented and doesn't smudge as much as the other cheap eyeliners.

2. Fashion 21 Defining Eyeliner in Black
     - Like the Nichido pencil, this also has good color payoff and doesn't smudge as much as the other liners. I love the Nichido Mineral Kohl Pencil but I love this more because it's retractable so it's more convenient to use.

3. Ever Bilena Color Pencil in Black
     - I forgot to feature this in the video but I highly recommend this eye pencil, too because the color is really jet black and glides on very smoothly but doesn't smudge as much as the other cheap liners, too.


1. Fashion 21 Color Set
     - I highly recommend this makeup palette to beginners, new makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts because it contains a lot of different shades already from white to black to browns to primary colors to secondary and so on! Haha! The texture is good, not powdery nor chalky. Most of the shades are pigmented but some are too sheer, though. This is for only PhP399.00! Not bad for makeup beginners!

2. San San Age Defense Trio Eyeshadow
     - I absolutely love these cream eyeshadows from San San because they are very pigmented and serve as a good eye makeup base. They can crease though since they are creamy so be extra careful in using them and make sure to use a primer. Read my review here.

3. Shawill 12 Color Cream Eyeshadow Palette
     - This palette is one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes from the local brands because they are cream eyeshadow with powder finish. They are all metallic and shimmery, perfect for glamorous makeup looks!

4. Fashion 21 Roll N Dazzle Glitter Eyeshadow in Pink Diamond

     - I bought this shade because I love its two-toned effect. It is a pink eyeshadow with gold flexes in it. Yes, this is an eye shadow but I rarely use it on my eyes anymore ever since I discovered that it can be a really great highlighter on your cheeks! To know more about my favorite local highlighter, click here.


1. Fashion 21 Double Up Mascara
     - One of the best mascaras that I've tried EVER! May it be from the local brands or from foreign brands. This is definitely one of the bests! It does a good job in separating and lengthening my eyelashes. Read my review here to know more about it.


1. Ever Bilena Ever Original Eyebrow Pencil
     - One of the first eyebrow pencils that I've used when I was just beginning to learn makeup and until now, it's still one of my favorite local eyebrow pencils. It stays on for long hours and it's not waxy unlike other eyebrow pencils that already looks super fake when you use them.

2. Ever Bilena Advance HD Eyebrow Pencil
     - I like its consistency because it's very blendable.

3. San San Eyebrow Pencil
     - The texture is comparable to the Ever Bilena eyebrow pencils but another thing why I love this is because of the sharpener that comes with it because it works! Hindi siya mapurol. Yes, small things do count! :)


1. Ever Bilena Matte Lipsticks
     - One of the local brands that carries awesome lipsticks is Ever Bilena and my favorite lipstick from them is their matte lipstick! Amazing pigmentation and they offer a wide range of shades from pinks to oranges to reds to browns!

2. Ever Bilena Famous Lipstick in Watermelon
     - I'm not a big fan of the Ever Bilena lipstick line called Famous but I'm a big fan of their shade Watermelon from the mentioned lipstick line. I love its coral shade and it's perfect for daytime looks an everyday looks.

3. Fashion 21 Lipsticks
     - The only lipstick from Fashion 21 is from their lipstick line, Red Romance, in the shade Heartthrob but if you're looking for affordable with good quality lipsticks, visit Fashion 21 counters because they offer awesome lipsticks in different shades. I always test their lipstick whenever I visit their counters and I am impressed with the pigmentation of their lipsticks and their texture plus they are all very affordable! The Red Romance lipstick in Heartthrob is one of my favorite red lipsticks, by the way.

4. M&Co. Lipsticks
     - Now, here is a brand that is not yet common to a lot of people. M&Co. is a local brand that offers a variety of cosmetics from foundations to powders to lipsticks. They also have almost everything. One of their famous products is their lipstick. I am amazed with the color payoff of their lipsticks and they also offer a lot of different shades. I have recently fell in love with their matte lipstick in the shade Scarlet which is what I was wearing in the video.


1. FS Cosmetics Eyelash Curler
     - They say this is a dupe for the famous Shu Uemura eyelash curler and I somehow agree with that because I have already tried that eyelash curler from the said high-end brand. I've been using this eyelash curler for almost 3 years now and until now, it's still working and it was only this year that I decided to change its pad. Isn't it awesome? This is for only PhP125.00!

2. M&Co. Eyelash Curler
   - I just discovered this recently and I am already recommending it because it's as good as the FS Cosmetics eyelash curler but it's cheaper for only PhP99.00 and it already comes with 2 extra pads.

3. Nichido Eyelash Adhesive
     - One of the best eyelash adhesives that I've tried and one of the most affordable. You can be sure that your falsies won't fall down or move from your lashes when you use this lash glue. This is for only PhP60.00.

4. HBC Essentials False Eyelashes
     - I'm amazed how these falsies look so natural yet they only cost PhP20.75 per pair! The band is really thin so you can barely notice is sitting on top of your natural eyelashes!

There you have it, dears! The products that I recommend from our local brands. So, you see, we don't really HAVE to spend a lot in beautifying ourselves. Yes, we may want to splurge at times but we don't really NEED to do that. Just visit the nearest mall and check out our local brands and you will surely find tons of amazing products with high-end quality and things that you can be really proud of as a Filipino! :)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)

1,000 Peso Makeup Challenge!!!

I'm sure a lot of you have already seen or heard about the 500 Peso Makeup Challenge that had spread throughout the beauty community in both blog sites and YouTube channels. I myself even accepted that challenge and I'm proud to say that I've accomplished that because it is more difficult than you thought it would be! Here's my 500 Pesos Makeup Challenge Video:

In that challenge though, the beauty tools such as makeup brushes and eyelash curlers are not included in the 500 Pesos budget unlike in the 20 Dollar Makeup Challenge that you've probably seen done by tons of YouTube beauty gurus from the states. Since I want to experience the 20 Dollar Makeup Challenge wherein everything that you will use should be included in the budget, I decided to do a Filipino counterpart of the said challenge. If you're going to convert 20 Dollars in Philippine Peso, it's around Php870+ so it's almost Php1,000 na din. Since it's a bit "blah" to title the challenge "800 Peso Makeup Challenge", I decided to just go for 1,000 Peso Makeup Challenge! :-)

The rule is the same as the 20 Dollar Makeup Challenge --- everything that you will use should be included in the budget except the things that you can usually find inside a home like water, cotton, q-tips, alcohol, etc.

Here's the look that I came up with in this challenge:

I have accomplished the challenge but there's a problem --- my face was lighter than my neck!!! I didn't notice that my face and neck color didn't match because in person, it looked fine so I assume it's because of my lighting. Huhuhu! Sayang at medyo nakakahiya din. :-(

Anyway, I'm still proud of myself because it was my first time to use cotton buds to blend my eyebrow pencil and to apply eye shadow! I'm telling ya, it's pretty difficult. Hehe! Here's the video, by the way:


            Php195.00 (Fashion 21 Perfect Stick with Tea Tree Oil)
            Php99.00 (Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-One Shine-free Cake Powder To-Go)
            Php50.00 (Ever Bilena Advance Eyebrow Pencil)
            Php65.00 (Fashion 21 Single Eyeshadow)
            Php148.00 (Shawill 12 Color Cream Eyeshadow)
            Php160.00 (Ever Bilena Pro Eyecolor Mascara/Eyeliner)
            Php10.00 (False Eyelashes from Divisoria)
            Php60.00 (Nichido Eyelash Adhesive)
            Php128.00 (Shawill Vogue Noble Lipstick)
            Php79.75 (Artist Studio Angled Brush)
Total = Php994.75

I hope you liked the look that I came up with and the challenge itself. Hope you can also do this challenge. :)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)

Ventriloquist Dummy Inspired Makeup

America's Next Top Model is one of my favorite reality TV shows ever. I remember how I addicted I was in watching the famous show over and over again and get inspired by every makeup looks that they would do on the aspiring models! ANTM was my inspiration for my 7 Deadly Sins Makeup Series. I think the main reason why I love the show is the fact that I love looking at their avant garde makeup looks! Actually, that's one of the many reasons why I decided to enter the makeup industry.

One of my favorite contenders is Joanie from Cycle 6 and my favorite photo of her is her Ventriloquist Dummy transformation.


I really love how she portrayed a ventriloquist dummy and I can pretty much recall that the ANTM judges that season also loved this photo of her. I don't know why it took me years before I decided to recreated this look. I've been watching different video tutorials in YouTube for this ventriloquist dummy makeup and maybe, I was doubting myself if I can pull it off. So, last week, I tried to do it and it was surprisingly very easy to do! Seriously! Hehehe!

I know it's not perfect but I'm proud of myself since this was my first attempt for this puppet look. I added some freckles because that's what I saw from the other puppet looks and from the real dummies. Though, I think I sucked on the freckles! Haha! It was too much, I think, and my boyfriend's niece even thought I had chicken pox! Hahaha! >.<

Anyway, if you want to watch my Ventriloquist Dummy Inspired Makeup Speed Tutorial, here it is:

Just goofin' around!

I hope you'll like this dummy look even if I did something annoying at the end part of the video! Hahaha! I love doing makeup looks like this! Brings out the creative in me. :)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)

August 2013 Favorites!

Time for my monthly favorites!!!

     - When I received this from Glory of New York, I thought it can only be used in massaging your face but when I talked to the owner of GNY, the one who formulated all the GNY products, I learned that this has many uses since it is infused with loads of nutrients. It can be used as a moisturizer for face and body, can be used to treat your scalp, etc. Right now, I'm using it as my makeup remover and I love it because aside from its nutrients and since it's an oil, it can thoroughly remove my makeup even the stubborn waterproof liners and mascara. Plus, it won't clog my pores and since it has Vitamin E in it, it can even condition my eyelashes! :) More about this amazing oil in a separate post.

     - This soap is one of GNY's newest products. I won't talk much about it because I'm saving it all for my review about it but I just want to share with you that this leaves the skin clean, soft and smooth without that dry feeling that most soaps do to our skin. :)

     - This may not be the first time that you've heard about this powder from me but I just love it so much that I can't stop using it every time I do my makeup. I have tons of powders from other brands but I find myself always reaching for this when I do my makeup and my clients'. It just have an amazing coverage and can keep the oiliness at bay for hours. It gives you a matte finish without that flat look.

4. Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser
     - This may not be the best primer ever but it is the best drugstore primer! Definitely a must-have for frugal people because it's budget-friendly and works great. It can mattify the skin and help makeup last longer.

5. Essence Soft Touch Mousse Make-Up
     - The coverage of this mousse foundation from Essence is very light but I love its texture and consistency. I have oily-combination skin and I always have to set my foundation with powder to get rid of the shine and so that my face would not oil up that quickly but this foundation really has a matte finish. And when I say matte, it's really matte. I can skip powder with this foundation on but to be honest, I still apply powder on top most of the time because I'm Ms. Meticulous but I have already tried this without powder on and it's really awesome. Review soon! :)

6. Fashion 21 Perfect Stick with Tea Tree Oil Foundation
     - My go-to foundation especially when I'm in a hurry! Since it's in a stick form, it's very convenient to apply and I can just use my fingers to blend it out. It's very affordable yet it provides good coverage and it can last for long hours, too. Read my review here.

7. ELF Eyebrow Treat and Tame
     - My brow and time saver!!! When it comes to doing my makeup, I usually spend most of my time in doing my brows but with this baby, I can just brush it through my eyebrows to fill in the sparse areas and then I'm good to go! Review of this product the soonest. I love this so much that's why it is the August product of the month. :)

     - I used to hate this mascara because it's non-waterproof and since I have very oily lids, I always go for waterproof mascaras to avoid smudging and having that raccoon eyes. Then, I gave this another try and I don't know what happened but I started to love it. It lengthens and makes my lashes look healthy and full. Also, I learned from the owner of GNY that it can condition your eyelashes and help it grow longer! :) I just use a waterproof mascara to seal it every time I use it.

9. Fashion 21 Defining Eyeliner in Black
     - One of my favorite local eyeliners! It also has a good color payoff like the Nichido Mineral Kohl Pencil in Onyx and both are long-lasting but I like this better because you don't have to sharpen it anymore since it is retractable plus it's very affordable at only P100.00!

10. Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Smokin' Hot Pink
     - I love Wet N Wild Megalast lipsticks but this is, by far, my favorite shade out of all the amazing colors they offer! I just love how it makes my lips look so smokin' hot and sexy! Hihi! :)

11. Sigma Beauty E25 Blending Brush
     - This brush just speeds up the blending process of an eye makeup! Read more about it in my review here! :)

12. Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Chocolate Sensation
     - A palette that is great for everyday, smokey eyes, and even for day-night transformation. The eyeshadows are pigmented and the texture is silky. More about this palette from Avon soon! :)

I hope you enjoyed reading about my last month's favorites! Can't wait for next month! Haha! :)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)

Mini Watsons Haul!


After school yesterday, I dropped by at SM North Edsa because Papa asked me to pay our SKY Cable/Broadband bills. E andun na lang din naman ako, bakit hindi pa ako tumingin-tingin sa Department Store, 'di ba? Hehe! Also, I realized I don't have wet tissues anymore, which I can't live without, and a conditioner for my hair (nagdadahilan pa, sus!).

You know what sucks when you're inside the department store at the beauty section? You can't just ignore all the makeups! Whenever I'm there, I can't, ever, just pass by the makeup counters and not check out their stuff. The good thing here is, I can resist myself from buying. I just love looking at them. Hehe! Anyway, as I was looking at different cosmetics, it reminded me that I am planning to do the 1,000 Pesos Makeup Challenge which I am really excited about! I already have a lot of local and affordable makeups from my own collection but I still needed a few to complete my stash for the new challenge.

Here are the things that I bought:

1. Syoss Moisture Intensive Care Conditioner (P48.00/100ml)
- I was a little surprised when I saw that this conditioner only costs P48.00! I thought it's going to cost more than that and I always thought Syoss products are expensive like Tresemme. Since it's just my first time to try Syoss, I just got the 100ml bottle so that I won't regret buying it if ever I won't end up liking it. It has pro-cellium keratin though so I'm hoping it will be a good product.

2. Baby First Baby Wipes (P84.00/Buy 1 Take 1)
- This is one of my favorite wet tissues because the tissues itself is not that easy to tear. Also, you can get this at a buy 1 take 1 deal for only P99.00 and each pack contains 60 sheets. Yesterday, I'm one happy (and shallow) kid because this pack only costs P84.00! Hurrah for great deals and discounts! :)

3. Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-One Shine-free Foundation To Go (P99.00)
- THIS IS AWESOME! I love Maybelline powders and I was so happy that they came up with a smaller compact complete with built-in mirror inside and a sponge! Yey! Definitely perfect for my 1,000 Pesos makeup challenge! :)

4. Ever Bilena Pro Eyecolor Mascara/Eyeliner (P160.00)
- Awesome dual-ended mascara and eyeliner! I bought this for the challenge but of course, I did not buy it without checking it first. I swatched the eyeliner and it's actually pretty good and the mascara wand looks interesting. I just hope the formula is good, too. I mainly bought this for the eyeliner and the mascara is just a bonus for me since I'm planning to use falsies on the makeup challenge. :)

5. Ever Bilena Advance Perfect Eyebrow in Medium Brown (P50.00)
- When it comes to affordable and good quality brow pencils, Ever Bilena is my go-to brand. I'm still not sure though if this is the brow pencil that I'll use for the challenge but I like its consistency, so, we'll just see!

6. M&Co. Office Eyelash Curler (P99.00)
- When I saw this from the M&Co. counter, I immediately checked its price and tried it on to see if it can decently curl my eyelashes. It actually works great and it's only for P99.00 so you can include this on your 1,000 Pesos makeup challenge! Sadly, it did not reach my budget. It's okay! It's still a good lash curler and very affordable!

That's it! Now I'm going to finish gathering all the things that I'll be needing for the makeup challenge! Whoo! Wish me luck! ;)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)
