Current Makeup

Favorites
It’s been a while since I’ve posted my makeup favorites – I’ve been more into wearing makeup and enjoying it in the process than being all “beauty blogger” with it (which makes me feel vv guilty). I don’t wait until I get a photo of it untouched before using it, etc. Over the course of two (maybe more) months, I’ve discovered so many new (and old!) gems that I’ve been reaching for constantly. A few I’ve already emptied and used up (hallelujah!) which I’m saving for another post. This is more of a gloss over on each product so if you want me to do a full review on each, let me know below because I’m overly swamped with so much things on my plate (not complaining, it’s just multi-tasking is a skill I still need to master).

Face
Laneige BB Cushion. It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to get into this BB cushion innovation. I’m quite picky with BB cream formulations but I love liquid foundation formulations the most when it comes to foundations – and would love to be able to touch up without having to use powder. Laneige BB gives a beautiful medium coverage with that dewy “K-POP” finish. It’s brightening and gives off a ‘natural’ finish once it sets. I’m so close to finishing this but I’m already thinking of repurchasing. Got mine from BeautyMNL (not an affiliate link though I do contribute for the online magazine).
Bobbi Brown Intensive Serum Corrector and Concealer*. I absolutely love the Corrector in Peach, hands down – it banishes the dreaded dark circles as promised. I do think the cream version stays on a bit longer than this liquid formulation, though. The Concealer in Warm Beige has medium coverage. It’s not your full cover concealer if you need heavy duty concealing. For the undereyes, does a good job when paired with the Corrector but it doesn’t last long without setting powder. I like the brightening effect that it gives off in conjunction with the concealing.
Bobbi Brown Weightless Powder Foundation*. I’ve had this for a long time now and it’s a staple in my bag for touch-ups. I also use this for setting my foundation (and concealer!) when I find the finish “too dewy”. It does well in mattifying and keeping oils at bay without any caking issues or looking like you’ve piled on the powder. Prior to this, I used my Ellis Faas but I’ve been skimping on that so I’ve been alternating this with that as well. Since it’s a powder foundation, you can use it as your sole foundation as well but I’ve yet to try it alone.

Inglot Stick Foundation in 106 & 115. Fresh from Poland, the new Inglot Stick Foundation includes deep cocoa shades perfect for contouring – aside from being a high-coverage cream foundation. I remember scouring the makeup counters before in search for a cream foundation for contour and could only find one (!!!). So you can probably tell that I was so excited for these to launch (I was counting the days even, ha ha!). The formula is a heavy cream that you can’t blend as easily with fingers (compared to using a brush) but can still be achieved. Once blended, it looks seamless without registering as cakey. But because this can be used for theater and stage, it definitely isn’t your lightweight, everyday foundation. I find it long-wearing – contour game is on point even after 8 hours!

Eyes
Eye of Horus Brow Definer*. I’ve used up my favorite brow pen, the L’Oreal Brow Designer Pro – so I’ve switched to this for now. It does a great job defining without looking too stark. The pen shape reminds me of the Hourglass eyebrow pencil which is a cult favorite. This also has a clear brow gel at the other end which helps stray brow hairs stay put. I’m getting another L’oreal Brow pen though because the mult-purpose pen, powder and spoolie have helped cut down my eyebrow shaping process in a matter of 3 minutes.
Benefit Air Patrol BB Eye Primer*. Leave it to Benefit to revolutionize eye priming! I’ve been a long-time eye priming loyalist so when they came out with this, I tested it right away. As an eye primer, it does a good job. Same as other great eye primers, it brings out the shade of sucky eyeshadows better and extends its wear time. But what I’m more impressed about is that it has SPF 20 and contains “EnviroDefend complex”  that guards our delicate eyelids (the most neglected part of our face!) against sun, smoke and pollutants.
Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Mascara. I don’t know what it is about this mascara that makes me keep coming back to it – ahh, wait – it’s one of the few that can keep my lashes up without weighing it down throughout the day. I like the volume it gives – not too dramatic but you’ll see I’ve definitely worn mascara. It has some minor clumping issues but despite it, it keeps my lashes up the whole day!! I love it as much as the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill mascara – only this is more accessible.
Kiko Base Volume Mascara. I add this to my Lancome mascara (as well as others that aren’t as volumizing) to increase the drama and ferosh-ity of my eyes. But I find that adding to much weighs down my lashes so I need to put the optimal amount. I still like the K-Palette 1 Day Magic Fiber mascara more than this though as the fibers in that one don’t weigh as heavily as this base coat.

K-Palette Essence in Shadowliner Pens. Speaking of K-Palette, I always find that this brand’s items creep into my daily makeup routine without me knowing. These dual-ended Shadow and Liner pens are the new additions. I love that the powder shadow is incredibly easy to blend with just my pinky that it has gotten me to wear eyeshadow even when I’m just going to the grocery! Ha ha! I did encounter some issues with how the powders are dispensed, though because at times, they put out too much. But when you’re in a hurry or are traveling, these are great multi-taskers to have at hand.

Now I’m curious about that mascara! My lashes are straight, short, and grow downwards, so I have to bring an eyelash curler to the office because they’re always droopy dog by midday!

Last time I shopped at Bobbi Brown, the SA was offering me their latest release of serum corrector/concealer. Sprang for just an eyeshadow muna as that was the reason I was there. Then I got their Skin Foundation. I’ve yet to get to the corrector/concealer, but I think I’d prefer a serum formula to a creamy formula. I feel like it would be easier to set. Trauma pa ako with the cream formula as I always seem to get a caked effect when I try to set.
