Something New: Lipstick Sealer from Suesh

Lipstick Sealers are so hard to find in the Philippines! And sometimes clients would really want to have long -lasting lipstick, but that's not always possible I remember ordering a top coat from Lancome but it never came :( So it's a good thing that Suesh now has makeup sealers and among them is a lipstick sealer!

I'll test this out and let you know how it goes.

Have you tried this? What can you say about it?

Another Great Find at Landmark!

I love Landmark! There are so many things that you can find for low prices! A few days ago, I visited Landmark Trinoma and look what I found in the nail section:

From Amira Magic Beauty, one very fine brush, one angled brush, one flat liner brush, a fan brush and a dotting tool, all for an affordable price of P199. These are nail brushes, but all of the brushes (without the dotting tool) can also be used for makeup! The three brushes on top can be used for fine details. The fan brush can be used to apply highlighters, or cut into a smaller size to be used as a mascara fan brush. Who said brushes need be expensive?

Musicalfan Asks: Do You Believe in Reflexology?

I'd like to ask this question since lately I've been getting reflexology from really trained people and not the ones found in nail salons. They claim that there are real health benefits from these, and not just for relaxation. After my first reflexology session, I immediately felt the urge to use the bathroom to do the number 2 (haha) and i had some loose bowel. Someone I know had a similar experience. One thing for sure, though, it does relax your feet. So now I'd like to ask, do you believe in reflexology?

Favorite Hand Sanitizer: Human Heart Nature Spray Sanitizer Citrus Burst

photo taken from for review purposes

Hand sanitizers are very important to have in our everyday kikay kits. I'm happy to say that I found my favorite hand sanitizer with Human Heart Nature! I've tried a lot of their products and like most of them, I'm happy with this! I find that it's not as drying as other brands I've tried and the citrus smell is very pleasing. I keep spraying this I'm sure I'll run out of this in no time. 
Have you tried this? What do you think?

Affordable Brushes: Fanny Serrano Angled Eyeliner Brush

I so love it when I find good brushes at affordable prices! And I can count my Fanny Serrano Angled Eyeliner Brush among them.

I have several angled eyeliner brushes but I find that this is my favorite for applying gel liners. I find that the small size of the head makes it easy to control the application, since other brushes are too big that the bristles aren't firm anymore. This one has the right amount of firmness. Applying gel liner on clients is a breeze! The bad part, I have a hard time using this to apply gel liner on myself because the handle is too long. I can't see my eye well from afar because I have bad eyesight :P Good thing Fanny Serrano also has a mini version of this!

How much? P150. Affordable, right?

Product Review: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Waterproof

Okay, let me start off this review by saying that I made a big mistake. I actually bought this in brownish black instead of black (from the US). Yep, I bought the wrong shade but luckily this shade was more on the black side than brown, it just wasn't jet black.

I got curious about this mascara since this is THE mascara that started it all, so I bought one.

The wand is just your ordinary mascara wand, nothing special about it.

Here's how my lashes looked like after 2 coats of Great Lash:

On the left is a picture without mascara, and on the right is with mascara. As you can see, although it did add some length, I wouldn't call it a crazy improvement, just right.

Unfortunately, like 80% of mascaras, this failed to pass my oily eyelids test. Even after I coated this with my Clarins Double Fix Mascara, one eye got smudged pretty badly when my eye got a little wet from the dryness I felt from my contact lens :(
This mascara is good for those who want a natural look and don't have extremely oily lids like me, but like most mascaras, this is not waterproof enough for me :(

An Ode to my Favorite Brush Cleaner at the Moment

Pink soap--have any of you heard of this brand? I read about it in a few beauty blogs, so when I went to the US last year, I made sure to pick up a bottle of this. Pink Soap is a brush cleaner that's actually meant for art brushes, but according to reviews I read, it's also effective for cleaning makeup brushes. It's also very affordable at $8 for almost 250 ml. I picked this up in a local hobby shop near my mom's place.

I find that it's very effective in removing makeup, especially foundation (which I have a hard time removing with baby shampoo). It's not effective, though, in removing old stains, so for your white-haired brushes, be sure to wash them right away or else it doesn't work as well anymore. It also contains no alcohol (so it's good for your brushes), plus it smells like mild shampoo!

I'm so glad that I found a good brush cleaner that isn't so expensive!
