You want to know why? Read on to find out  =)


NARS Orgasm vs MAC Springsheen blush comparison


Hey Shopcoholics! 
As promised from my last post, here’s a comparison between the two. As you all know, Orgasm is one of the most popular blush from NARS. Fyi, this not a spend vs save version because as you can see MAC is also a high end brand, but you can save a few pesos. I’ll tell why in a bit =)

Both blushes are described as a peachy pink shade with gold shimmers.

NARS Orgasm blush (4.5 grams) - Php 1,800 at Rustans
MAC Sheertone blush (6 grams) - Php 1,625 at Rustans and MAC Stores

MAC blushes review and swatches



Inspired by Hollie, my blogger bestie’s post on her favorite MAC blushes, I’ve decided to share with you my favorites as well. MAC is in fact my favorite makeup brand, and it is also close to my heart. I was one of the pioneer makeup artists when it opened its first door here in Cebu. Now, MAC has already 3 branches and counting. I’ve already sold some shades that I rarely use and these are the only ones left.

Review: Too Faced Born This Way Multi-use Scuplting Concealer



Hi Shopcoholics! 
One of my favorite makeup product is concealer. In fact, I have tried a LOT! 
From drugstore to high end ones... from different textures - cream, liquid, sticks!

My HG concealer is still MAC Studio finish, I use it to cover undereye circles and pimple marks.  On some days where I just need something light and with a good coverage, I prefer to use liquid concealers. They say that the best liquid concealer is the Tarte Shape Tape, but i beg to disagree :) You see, I also own Shape tape and I find it too drying even with eye cream underneath. They say that Too Faced Born this way is the hydrating version of Shape Tape. Maybe I’ll do a comparison next time.

Spend vs Save: NARS Radiant Creamy concealer

Hello Shopcoholics! 
It’s been a while since I did a Spend vs Save series here in my blog.
 I am really excited to show you the comparison between two of the most popular concealers in the high end and drugstore category. 
I’ve been using NARS for quite sometime now and it my favorite liquid concealer to date. 
After reading good reviews about Maybelline being a dupe of the cult fave NARS Creamy concealer, I’ve decided to give this a try. I bought two shades, 010 Light and 020 Sand.


Spend: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard Php 1,750
Save: Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 20 Sand Php 299

Both concealers are yellow toned and suits light skintones (NC20).
