October was quite the busy month. I used a lot more makeup items than I normally would in a month – especially since I purchased a few new things which I tested out religiously. I only picked 6 products (tried to keep it at 5, but couldn’t) because I might be rambling on too much about the same ol’ things had I included more. These six are things I constantly used, despite changing up my blush and eyeshadow shades. Notice I included one lipstick because we were inseparable – Vivien and I.

Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB Cream. But BB creams are so 5 years ago! So what! This isn’t fashion where color-blocking is in one season, out the next. Makeup ‘trends’ have a longer lifespan than your pair of black Birkenstocks. I’ve never heard beauty addicts go “Eww, look she’s still wearing BB cream – the in thing now is ZZ cream. She’s so not trendy.” In makeup, trends are more of suggestions as compared to fashion where it’s more a dictate.
Anyway, this EL BB Cream is exactly how I want my BB creams to be – lightweight, with SPF but sans white/greyish cast and with medium coverage. Not to mention doesn’t fade easily and has oil-controlling properties! Think of it as Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation but less coverage, more lightweight and more sun protection.
Ellis Faas Compact Powder. I just reviewed this here and well, I’m officially a convert. You can tell from the compact’s scratches this was well abused this month – I took it with me wherever I went, never mind if it’s just to the grocery outside the village. I even passively convinced my sister to get one, she’s placing in her order this week.
Bobbi Brown Corrector. I’ve hit pan on this because it’s really the only solution I’ve found to counter my dark circles. When I’ve gotten enough shut-eye the night prior, I can use this alone without concealer, powder slightly and I’m good to go.
Heroine Make Eyebrow Pencil. Such an affordable eyebrow product that’s easily climbing the top ranks in my favorite eyebrow products ever! It has just the right amount of color so you won’t end up with overdrawn too-strong brows – no frills brow product! It costs Php 345 and will last you a month or two if you’re careful not to break the pencil.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose. My ultimate glow-inducer this month. If I’m not sporting my natural highlighter which is sweat, then this is my BFF. No fail compliments when I wear this – even from random strangers on elevator rides. This is such a hit I wanted to get Sandstone, the light bronzey one from the Smokey Nudes collection – but had to stop myself because hoarding. And maybe because I wanted the Nude lipstick more.
NARS Audacious Lipstick in Vivien. Do I need words for this? Recently acquired but fast becoming one of my most-used lipsticks already. The attachment is that strong. I’m on the way to having a certificate made to name this my signature shade – but I’ve recently purchased a new lipstick that might be a strong contender for the title.
