Remember my last haul post?
I said that i'll be swatching the MAC lippies that i got. I bought the Blankety & Brave. Here is how they look like...
I prefer Satin & Amplified Creme & i guess Matte finishes when it comes to lipstick compare to Lustres & Cremesheens. I have a pretty pigmented lips & since i prefer nude lip colors, i dig the ones that can provide more coverage.
Blankety is the perfect nude lipstick for me. This is L-O-V-E!
I knew that it has a reason why i keep on looking for swatches & the word 'blankety' always creeps up on my head when i see my lip concealer. It's already calling out to me! Im glad that this is not a limited edition for i don't plan to haul in.
Im trying to get back into doing eye make-ups & now i can rock smokey look once more because i have my HG nude lipstick! Though i think Myth can be a good candidate for being a HG nude lipstick...i guess i have to find out for myself. I'll be posting a look tomorrow where i used Blankety.
Brave on the other hand is more of a pinky beige & is great for those who are still looking for nude lips but with a slight color. I love this one! This is perfect for an everyday look!
Overall, i'm so satisfied.
Actually, i'm more than satisfied i can stare at it the whole day..LOL! I'm so happy with my purchase that i keep telling bf that my lipsticks look so nice. He just nods while grinning then making a comment that he can't see the reason why im so happy with a tube of lipstick. I said how could i not be happy if i have found the perfect lipstick... & he burst out laughing because of that..
Why can't they understand the need for us women to be beautiful & be surrounded by beautiful things?!
It's just like how they go 'ohh & ahh' over a carburetor or tires...
To find the perfect make-up item is already an achievement for a make-up addict like us! Don't deny...we are beauty bloggers so i know that you know what i'm talking about. XD
But i guess if im a guy, i'll also be laughing my ass off if i see someone looking like how i did.
Moving on, Part of my haul is the powder brush that i saw on Landmark that reminds me of a MAC brush. Hey, you gotta admit that there's a likeness,right?
The thing that got me sold is the handle plus the fact that it's soft. hehe
Seriously! I think its actually neat. Its black & it's matte. It's also long & a bit heavy. I prefer brushes that are a bit heavy as opposed to those that are so light that i fear that i will break them with my clumsy hands. This is how it looks like.
I don't even know if you can see the number on the handle, but it reads '150'. I know that it's not as black as a MAC brush, but i still like it. It's not dense but at least it's not flimsy. I'd actually choose this over my ELF Studio Complexion Brush. The bristles are very soft. When i washed it, it bleeds & sheds.
I like how i can apply finishing powders with this without making me look like i had that 'in your face' look. Since the bristles are not densely packed (unlike a kabuki brush) you can have a very light powder application no matter how much powder you put on it.
Plus it's soft enough to be used for those very light buffing/blending out face powders. hence, it's perfect for removing those excess powders sitting on your face.
The thing that i don't like is the smell though. When i bought it, it smells like how a cheap make-up brush smells like. I have to wash it 3x to remove the smell....though now, i can still smell a very faint odor from it, but then it's tolerable now.
I think its a nice brush. For me, that is, since i don't really go for heavy coverage (unless i am doing a make-up for my blog). It's soft enough & it doesn't poke my pores unlike some brushes...Im not a brush expert so i'm not even sure if im doing a good job in reviewing this. I know that this is not comparable to a MAC brush, but still! It looks like one & it does its purpose..enough said.
Sorry that i forgot to include the price,ladies. I bought this in Trinoma Landmark at Php300 (approx $6.50)
Well, that's it for now.
Hope y'all have a great day,ladies!
