740 Pesos Makeup Brush Set, worth it or not?


 

This brush set caught my attention while I was browsing my facebook feed. First, it looks so cute because of the color. Soooo kawaiiii!!!! LOL. Second, it has white bristles! I’m such a sucker for that. Lastly, it’s only 740 pesos which is about 15 bucks.

Here’s the look that I made using the brushes

Would anybody be able to do the same look using the brushes? Was it really worth it? How did I do this look?

Here’s the complete review-slash-first-impressions-slash-tutorial that I did.

Share some love! XOXO

Peace Out!!!

REVIEW: Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation and Powder

I haven’t been active in blogging for over a year now but I’M BAAAAACK!!!!

Expect more of me!!!! LOL

I’ve seen a lot of negative reviews about the first version of Maybelline Fit Me! that it was very dewy and it does not last long and so now that Maybelline launched a matte version of it, so I thought, “why not try it?”

Here’s the Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation

I bought this online so I wasn’t paid for this review, owkeeey?!

I got 3 shades, 110 Porcelain which I assume is the lightest shade they have, 322 Warm Honey which is a deeper shade, and of course, my shade 228 Soft Tan.

I got these shades so that I can just mix it whenever I need a shade somewhere in between.

With the container, I find it fine although it doesn’t have a pump so you don’t have much control with how much product will go out. I poured the product to a mixing plate and got more than what I just need so I suggest using a spatula.

 It wasn’t so thick like what I expected and was not even that watery, so it’s just fine.

It claims to be matte, and it actually sticks to its word. LOL

The coverage is from medium to heavy.

I actually find it blend-able, unlike what other bloggers claim that it dries quickly. But it still is better to blend it faster.

So, now let’s see the powders! Shall we?

I already used it before even taking a photo so there was already a dry area. Sorry!

I like how it was packaged. Since it’s square and flat, I can stack them together or side by side which saves much space in my kit.

Honestly, I was disappointed when I opened it because I thought it was also square inside which, I assumed, would take up the whole space. BUT I WAS WRONG!!! LOL

I like the texture of the powder since it is felt-like. It has also good coverage.

I prefer using a sponge when applying the powder because it tends to just be another layer of your face when applying it with a powder brush.

I tried using the liquid foundation without the powder, and apparently, I liked it better than setting it with a powder. And the longevity of it is not bad. I used it at around 11am and it’s still there around 10pm but you can see some areas are already shiny.

It is better to use a round kabuki brush when applying the liquid foundation and a sponge when using the powder.

WATCH THIS:

Over all:

Haircut and Hair Tattoo at Hecktor’s Salon


P1040678-horz

I’ve really just waited for my hair to be colored then I’m off to my favorite salon. 🙂

As you’ve seen in my previous blog entry, Coloring Hair Golden Yellow, my hair was really really long and shapeless. Although I’ve cut most of the pink parts of my hair, there were still some remaining to be hanging on there. LOL

P1040654

Then, I have decided to have a haircut. After work, I went straight to my hairstylist. I’m not a stranger here but whenever I go to this salon I usually have the side of my head shaved and not really have a hair styling or haircut.

P1040655

They shampooed my hair first then they sprayed something like a conditioner to my hair for it to be easily brushed.

P1040658

Then, Hecktor, the owner of the salon, started cutting my hair. He always does my hair especially my hair tattoo or hair art. Hecktor never goes wrong with his craft.

Then he shaved the right side of my head again for the Nth time. LOL. I looked so nervous on this photo but I’m just irritated by the sound of the razor.

P1040668

After shaving it, Hecktor then did my hair tattoo (as always). By the way, Hecktor used to be a senior stylist for Bench Fix. Apparently, he became wiser and wanted to grow as an individual, he then put up his own salon. And, yes, all his clients are still with him, even those who were his clients from Bench Fix. 🙂

P1040671

Blower time!!! 🙂 I love how my hair looks like after blower that’s why I’m always excited for this part. LOL.

P1040672

What you all thought was when it’s done blow drying the hair, everything’s finished. THAT’S WRONG! After blow drying, Hecktor will still snip you hair for the final touches. 🙂

P1040679

And there, my hair after the haircut and shaving  and hair tattoo. LOL. This photo does not give justice to the shape of the hair, though because it was all in just one side.  But you can still see the layers which you will not see from my previous hair. 🙂

Have your haircut now! You will not regret going to this salon.

P1040686

You can go to Hecktor’s Salon from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm, Mondays to Sundays.

It is located at 47 Scout Torillo St. Timog, Quezon City.

Tell me your experience with Hecktor’s Salon and share your photo even. 🙂

Coloring Hair Golden Yellow

So I had to change my hair color already. It has been a while since I last colored it though. The roots were really dark now.

December of Last year, I bleached my hair and had pink ombré. It already faded but still visible though. It used to be super bright pink but gradually faded to baby pink, now orange-ish pink.

P1040566-horzHere’s how my hair looks like now. The pink isn’t noticeable enough since I cut most of its part because of dryness and split ends. I wanted to have lighter hair, as in like platinum blonde hair. Because I was in a rush to change my hair color, I just thought maybe I’ll try something without bleaching my hair again this time.

Because I am such a cheap ass, I searched for the cheapest yet most effective solution to make my hair lighter. So, I ran on to this hair color.

P1040564

Yes! Those are the things you see in the sidewalks being sold for only P20.00! I have used this before (way back high school) and it was effective for me, well, for most Asians since it’s really made for Asian hair.  You can grab some like this in Philcoa, UP Diliman.

P1040572

As I’ve said, I’m such a cheap ass girl so I just asked my brother to color my hair. I’m telling you, he is such a pro! He knows how to apply hair color properly and evenly.  LOL. But seriously, he really knows what he’s doing.

P1040576-horz

Here’s how it looked like. By the way, I have a side shaved hair and I want it to be dark so I didn’t color it. 🙂 My hair is quite long so we used 6 packs of the hair color. Still, it’s way cheaper than going to a salon  or buying over the counter hair colors you do not even know if it’ll work for your hair. I just spent P120.00. 😀

SORRY FOR MY BARE FACE.

P1040581-horz

TAHDAH!!! Here’s how it looks like now! 🙂 I just had to keep it for 45 minutes to an hour and that’s the product.

P1040586-horz

I love how it turned out. You will really get the color displayed on the box.  I love it!

After 4 days, here’s how it looked like.

P1040605-horzIt is still super nice. Sorry for the ungroomed eyebrows. But, yeah, I love my hair color.

Pros:

• It is cheap

• It is very effective especially for Asian hair

• You really get the color that is displayed on the box

• It is less damaging than bleaching

Cons:

• It is hard to remove on skin, especially your hands

• It will take you a while before you can really wash your hair without staining the water and the shampoo

I’ll rate this 8 out of 10. 🙂 I am very much satisfied with my hair color, but surely I will still try other brands. 😀
