Review: Sleek Makeup i-Divine Mineral Based Eyeshadow in Original

This palette was with me almost a couple of months but never used, ever. I am afraid that it looks gross on me cos I didn’t expert in applying. From a scratch, watching youtube and some basic guide let me to play it now.I love Sleek MakeUp brand cos it such an affordable but delivers right pigmentation. Their brand is offers wide collection and selling like hotcakes in the Philippines.

This eye shadow palette consists of 12 shades, 6 vibrant colors and other 6 neutrals. It contains a range of metallic shades from gold to ocean blue and pearlescent purple but includes a matte dark colour, ideal for definition or perfecting a classic smokey effect.

It looks more shimmery because it is mineral based. I’m having a hard time to blend plus I am a beginner.I used a benefit eye primer to last the application the whole day. I experiment blending from one shade to its lightest shade. (Will update soon!) Maybe I could do more.

e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

I bought my first “contour” thing for the loved to try new makeup. Yes, this was my first and affordable contouring product I have. I was amazed on the models of magazine, famous celebrities and even faces on my way. (I was like, how they do that? I gave a try to this contour blush and bronze powder from beautymnl together with elf stipple brush.

I’ve been looking up on a contemptible one to begin with this “contour thing” if how to use it, so I tried one.

With the help of the instructions at the back, I use the blush brush to swipe on the bronze to my hollow cheeks for a definition around my face line. I applied also the blush highlights on my cheeks. I did not notice the defined pigmentation, but I noticed the sun kissed effect on my cheekbone.Please note that it is only noticeable when lights hit at a certain angle.

Pros: very affordable for a beginner, blend very easily with a good pigmentation that gives your face a healthy natural glowing skin, the packaging is 5/5 and can bring anytime, anywhere, the Sta. Lucia shade is perfect for asian color, the packaging and the mirror inside is probably worth the price

Cons: the pigment is light on my medium complexion ( I dab a rose blush from Maybelline for more flush of clor) re-apply after 5- hours, the texture isn’t buttery soft, it feel slightly dry and powdery but it’s nothing too terrible.

Recommendation: Use setting spray or face primer for long lasting, can be a dupe for Nars Laguna and Orgasm (fraction of the cost!)

It was not a dissapoint on me cos I just try ths thing for fuss. You had to work on it to make it work:) Have you tried this one? Share with me your thoughts!

Bite-Sized Beauty: Benefit Cosmetics

From my first mini haul to this current bite-sized beauty, I love collecting sample sizes that were given from the purchase items and gifts from travel abroad. Lets begin with the good brand which is Benefit.

Among the three, I was amazed with the effect of They’re Real Mascara which lengthens and volumizes your lashes with just one rob. I won’t mind buying this 30g for Php700 because of its effectiveness and long wearing results. Indeed,one of the good buys! I heard a lot of raves about The POREfessional face primer so good thing I have the sample, so if it works to my face, I should save more to buy the big tube, so I could test if surely will minimize my pores for more flawless looking makeup. It was said it was the number 1 face primer in the US, so I, we, strongly convinced to have that. The last sample is the Air Patrol Cream Eyelid Primer. We all know that the main role of primers is to extend wear of the make up that won’t crease, fade or smear.Right?

How bout you? have you tried these cosmetics? Is is worth it to buy the full size? Share with me your thought! Happy holiday!
