Weekend mini haul

I bought these stuff last week from an online seller in Mutiply whom I met in a local forum.



Left to Right:

Cover Girl Tru Blend Foundation in Natural Ivory
> tested it first on my jawline to check whether am allergic to the product (thank goodness i'm not). I'm NC20-25 in MAC, the color matches my skin but has a little pink in it. I dunno if this will work.. Still have to test this on my entire face.. **crossing my fingers**

Cover Girl Advanced Radiance Age defying Concealer in Light Beige
> used this on my undereyes.. I just love the consistency of this concealer! It feels so light and very easy to blend. The shade is almost similar to MAC Select cover up in NC20. When I checked Cover Girl's site, this product is discountinued na pala! =(

Cover Girl Wetslicks Crystal Lipgloss in Hottie
> a no fuss, non-sticky, shiny lipgloss with sparkles! Not that long lasting though..

Wet n Wild "Wet Shine" Lipstick in Pink Shine
> love the color! Its a shiny light pink, my MLBB shade! (my lips but better shade). When applied on my lips, it doesn't feel heavy at all..

Bottom:

Avon Daring Curves Mascara in Black
> I asked my friend who's an Avon member to buy it for me. The brush looks new to me coz it has curves too! I'm dissapointed coz it didn't thicken my lashes. I'm still learning on how to apply this properly.



Eyemake Mirror

I'm clueless on how to use this one.. hehe. Bought it at a local department store..

What's in my makeup kit..

This week, take a peek on what's inside my kikay kit . This is what I carry around inside my bag (changes from time to time depending on my mood)..


Tadaa... =)

For the brushes and blushes, I prefer a closed zipped plastic mini bag so that my brushes will be free from dust.. and for the lippies, a mesh wide open bag ( i don't know what to call this =P)
so that it will be easy for me to retouch and find my desired lippie.


I forgot to include my Maybelline powder foundation & Skinfood Lemon pressed powder =)


What's inside :

From left to right..

Ever bilena brush used as mineral concealer brush
Sembem eyeshadow brush ( so soft for a cheap brush! hehe)
Ellana Baby Buki (case not shown)
Everyday Minerals Super full Angled brush for blush & bronzers

Counter clockwise:

Ellana Mineral concealer in Awake ( really love this for my undereyes! )
E.L.F. Radiance Blush in Glow (now on my 3rd pan)
Elianto Baked Blush in #3 Natural purple (pink when applied w/ shimmers)

MAC Satin Lipstick in Mac Red
NYX Round Lipstick in Femme
Carmex Strawberry Lipbalm (love this stuff!)
MAC Lustreglass in Venetian ( i use this on top of any Red lippie)

True Colors 5 stack Mica Shimmer Powder Review

Thanks to my friend Dona from the US for giving me this.. It's so generous of her, always showering me with gifts!! I got almost all of my MAC makeup from her because of her 40% discount! LOL!

When she gave me this Mica powder, I wasn't sure on how to use this. I thought it's just a regular eyeshadow with the cute packaging! And am not so familiar with the brand too! =)

When I researched this online, boy I was wrong!! You can use this powder on almost anything!! Read on to learn more =) Details taken from their website.

*******************
TRUE COLORS MICA POWDERS

True Colors shimmer powders can be used as eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, blush, bronzer, lipstick, nail polish, highlighter, temporary hair color, and every other cosmetic item. One pot of our mica makeup has enough pigment that other cosmetic companies will mix enough additives into to make hundreds of dollars.

True Colors Cosmetic Powder is the most unique makeup that exists. It is pure mica powder with no additives or ingredients of any kind. Other cosmetics use fillers, which cause allergies, reactions, creasing, clumping, and are generally bad news for the skin. Mica is the basic coloring agent that colors all make up, and can mix with any base to color it. Try the following applications and enjoy your new collections!

Used as an Eye shadow or Blush
Use a sponge applicator, shadow brush or blush brush and lightly touch the mica (dust off any excess mica) and apply to the eyelid or cheeks.

Used as an Eyeliner
Use an angled eyeliner brush, dip it in water, lightly touch the mica, (dab it on your hand to remove any excess mica) and apply it on your eyes.

Used as Lipstick
Use your favorite clear gloss, pick out your mica color and apply it on your lips. You can also mix the mica with the gloss and then apply. Which ever you prefer.

Used as a Nail Polish
Dip your clear nail polish in any mica color and apply it to your nails. Wipe off excess mica before putting brush back into the clear nail polish.

Used as Highlights or Lowlights
Use a blending brush, dip it in your mica color and start at the root and stroke all the way to the ends. For longer hold use it with gel or hair spray.

Used as a Tanning Lotion
Use your favorite lotion and mix it with a skin tone mica color, then apply it to your legs, arms and face. It will give you a beautiful and youthful glow.
