Swatches : MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35++

As you all know, MAC Studio Finish is my HG concealer. I use it as an undereye concealer, brow and face highlight, and to cover imperfections and pimple marks. 

This is the BEST concealer I have ever tried! 
It is full coverage, has SPF 35++, and it's waterproof. 
A tiny pot costs Php 1,100 ($22) here in the Philippines, but will last you up to 2 years with everyday use.

I have the following shades:

NC20, NW20, NW25 and NC30.

 For reference, my foundation is NC20. I use the NW25 shade first as an undereye corrector  because of its salmon color, and then followed by NW20 to brighten.

For pimple marks and imperfections, I usually mix NC30 and NC20 to get the perfect shade. 

For brow and face highlight, I use the NC20 shade.

You can mix it with moisturiser for a sheerer coverage.

New Lorac Rose and Revelry Unzipped set swatches

 Happy holidays Shopcoholics! 
I am sure you girls have already started with your Christmas shopping. 
Recently, Lorac has launched the Rose and Revelry collection for this holiday season. 
The moment I saw this set, I immediately asked a friend of mine in the US to buy it for me. 

   Lorac Rose and Revelry Unzipped set
Retails for $35 (valued at $75) at Lorac.com

This set includes the ff:
Unzipped eyeshadow palette (11.20 grams)
Behind the scenes eye primer (5.5 grams)
Alter Ego lipstick in Stylist (3.4 grams)
Alter Ego lipgloss in Goddess (3.57 grams)

I am in love with the texture of Lorac eyeshadows. They are buttery soft to touch, has minimal fall-outs and are pigmented even without an eye primer.

BOTTOM ROW (from left to right) :

Lorac Alter Ego Lipgloss in Goddess 


The lipstick and lipgloss included are perfect for this holiday season. The lipstick shade reminds me of MAC Captive. So lucky to snag this set before it sold out online. The eyeshadow palette, if purchased alone costs $42, so imagine my surprise when I saw this set for only $35! Quite a steal, right?! 

My bff Hollie of Random Beauty is in love with the Lorac Unzipped too. You may check her review and swatches here.

A few more days before Black Friday sale.. what are you girls getting?

Swatches: Lorac Pro To Go Eye + Cheek Palette

Hello Shopcoholics!

Here's another most used palette in my makeup stash, the Lorac Pro To Go Palette.
This palette features 2 highlight shades, 4 eyeshadows, 2 blushers, a bronzer and 2 mini brushes.

I  also own the original Lorac Pro Palette, and I have to say that Lorac is really consistent with their formulation. The eyeshadows, blushers and bronzer have the same buttery texture, pigmentation and staying power compared to the original one. 

This retails for $38 on LORAC, but if you plan to purchase one here in the Philippines I have seen a lot of online sellers on Ebay and Instagram selling it for Php 2,500+.

Shimmer: Pearl | Chai | Mink

Matte: Shell | Cafe | Black

Lorac Pro To Go Palette Swatches

Pearl - a cool toned shimmery shade that can also be used as a face highlighter 
Chai - a medium bronze color that looks flattering on all skin tones
Mink - dark purplish color with shimmers
Shell - can be used all over the lid as base
Cafe - my fave transition shade for the crease
Black - can be used with a damp brush as an eyeliner

Lorac Pro To Go Palette Swatches

Bronze (matte) | Pink (matte) | Coral (shimmer)

Overall, I enjoy using this palette and will definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a travel friendly makeup palette.
