I heart Makeup..

Hey there ladies! Just want to share my favorite makeup as of the moment.. =)

* LANCOME Palette - i love the colors! it has 4 long lasting eyeshadow colors that I can use throughout the year (from summer to fall) and a classic matte red lipcolor!

* MAYBELLINE Powder Foundation in N11 - i use this dry when I'm in a hurry to put on liquid foundation. It evens out my skintone & is very good in controlling oil.

* MAC lustre lipstick in Lightly Ripe - from the Cult of Cherry Collection. My friend Dona gave this during my birthday. The shade is medium pink, and is perfect during daytime especially when layered with MAC lustreglass in Pinkarat.

* MAC lipglass in Pink Lemonade - a light peachy pink gloss that makes my lips look plump!

* MAC lustreglass in Venetian - a sheer cherry red color with shimmers. Perfect for nighttime parties!

* MAJORLICA MAJORCA mascara by Shiseido - my lashes look like falsies when I use this. It has a unique comb- like wand that separates lashes while making it look full & long..

* MAYBELLINE aqua gel foundation in Natural - a sheer foundie that evens out my skintone & covers slight imperfections without the mask like effect. I prefer to use this with a damp makeup sponge so that it really blends well coz this tend to dry quickly.

* SKINFOOD Mushroom Multi-care BB Cream SPF 20 - i use this most of the time alternating it with my Gingko BB Cream. This serves as my makeup base, foundation & sunblock! Really cuts my makeup application in half. Definitely a keeper! Click here to read my review.

* SMITH'S Rosebud salve - instantly relieves chapped lips!
According to Sephora's website : " This cult-favorite, multi-purpose lip balm soothes dry lips, calms and heals irritation, and soothes the sting of minor burns. Try dabbing on dry elbows or knees to condition, and relieve dryness. Also an excellent remedt for the treatment of diaper rash."

* MAC sheertone blush in Springsheen - a light peach shade with golden shimmers! Really warms up my skintone. I like pairing this with my MAC lipglass in Sexy sweet (Belle Azure Collection), a shimmery peachy bronze shade.

* LANCOME eyeshadow brush - made of soft hair that makes blending eyeshadow a breeze! This brush is part of their Makeup Set.

* SHU UEMURA Eyelash Curler - another cult fave. Curls my lashes without pinching my eyes like most curlers do.

* MAC select cover up in NC20 - double purpose! a concealer & an eye primer. I just set this with loose powder. Prevents my eyeshadow from creasing.

* VOV cover foundation in natural beige #2 - i use this as a concealer for my under eye circles & pimple marks. Click here to read my review.

Product Info :
"Shine free finish - combined oil absorbing ingredients remove shine for a clean shine free finish."

"Silky Smooth texture - the extreme fine powder glides like silk and melts smoothly on skin. It covers flawlessly but looks perfectly natural."

Its Fragrance-free, Oil free, Non-comedogenic and it won't clog pores. With SPF 18."

When it first came out this year, I bought the LIGHT shade. To my disappointment, its not my shade. The color is pinkish and my face looked weird. And also, for a fragrance-free powder I find the scent a bit strong compared to their Clear Smooth 2-way powder foundation (I'll do a product review soon..)

Recently they added SPF 18 to the powder! Great! I decided to give it another shot coz I really like the coverage it gives. It evened out my skintone & covered tiny pimple marks without the heavy feel.

I bought the NATURAL shade. In the compact it looked kinda dark for my skintone or maybe its the lighting on the department store?! hehe =) But when applied it matches perfectly with my skintone.. At last! hehe . I wasn't bothered by the scent coz it disappears a few minutes after application.

I don't like the puff that comes with it, its not soft and it scratches my face. Make sure to replace it.

VOV Cover Foundation Review

VOV - Makeup of the Stars

**Click to enlarge** taken from VOV site

Company Info :

Vision of Vision or VOV in short, is a high end cosmetic & skincare brand from Korea.

Their products include lipsticks, blushes, eyeshadows, BB creams, concealers etc..

For more info, check out their website.

Also, check out this post from Manila Standard Today.

My sister introduced this product to me 2 years ago coz im looking for a good & inexpensive concealer to hide my dark undereye circles & slight pimple marks.

She's an actress in ABS-CBN, and her makeup artist (MUA) uses this on her and other actors & actresses as well. She loved the product so much that she asked her MUA to buy one for her. It even took her MUA over a month to buy this product coz its always out of stock!

I told my sister to buy one for me (coz its not available here in Cebu). I even lost hope because its been over a month, my sister still said its always out of stock! Hmpf..

When I went to Manila during the holidays, I passed by the Cosmetics Floor in SM Megamall. There I saw VOV! My heart jumped coz I totally forgot about their Foundation!! I immediately rushed to their counter and asked the Sales girl if they have the Cover Foundation. Luckily they still have stocks! Yey! At last after months of waiting.. =)

Product Info :

A cream foundation that offers medium to heavy coverage. The longer it stays on your skin the more natural it looks. I use this as an undereye concealer and pimple marks. A little goes a long way, so its very tipid.. Just make sure to set it with loose powder.

Product Size :
22 grams

Price :

Less than 500 pesos

Available in 4 shades that can be mixed together to exactly match your skintone.
Luckily I don't have to do that coz I found my match in Shade #2. For your reference I'm NC20-25.

Addiction Factor :
Will definitely buy again as soon as it runs out.

Rating :
4 out 5. I wish the pot has a mirror for easy application.
