Out-of-the-blue

We (my friends & I) did a make up test shoot yesterday and here's what we came up with. :)

I chose to do a Khloe Kardashian make-up look for my friend Kath. I dunno why, I just have this feeling that she looks like her (or almost?). :)

I used my Dollface palette for her cheeks and black eye make-up. I used my ELF waterproof eyeliner pen and lined her eyelid and winged it out. I also applied false eyelashes and lined her lower lash line with Fashion21 white cream eyeliner.
I used Sophie nude lipstick for her lips.


I did a Maleficent (The evil witch in Sleeping Beauty) inspired make up look for Luisa which wasn't really what I planned for. I was really inspired by a picture of a model wearing a dark purple/blue eye make up which I found somewhere on the internet (I forgot the site, crap). And when I was halfway on finishing her (Luisa's) eye make up I got confused why It went like that. It's hard to explain. LOL.

And here's the final look.

I used my Dollface palette for her eye make up and Nichido Eyebrow kit for her brows. Lined her lids and put false eyelashes.

I used my Nichido lip liner in 'Rosette' which is of pinkish brown shade and applied lipgloss.

Hope I did a good job. :)

Lastly, I was inspired by this photo I found on google images and decided to go with this one for Alain.

Again, with my humble Dollface palette I came up with this one and I hope it looks the same or near to reality to the image I was inspired of. :D

I used my Ever Bilena nude lipstick in 'off beat pink' and applied lipgloss.

Tada!

I had a really great time though it was very exhausting. Alain told me that it took me 3 hours to finish all their make up (1 hour for each of them). Is that long enough? I don't know. Please enlighten me. XD

ELF Waterproof Eyeliner Pen Review

Eyeliners are my most favorite make up ever! You just use it to line your upper and/or lower lash line then voila! It gives your eyes intensity and instantly sharpens your look. But of course mascara and eyelash curler are also a must. I use pencil and liquid eyeliners and this is my first time to use/own an eyeliner pen.

ELF Waterproof Eyeliner Pen

Packaging close up. I bought the black one. It's also available in Midnight (Navy blue), Coffee (brown), Ash, Plum, Purple and Teal (Cobalt blue) Purple and Teal are their new colors out. I don't know if all colors/shade mentioned are available locally cos when I bought mine I only saw Midnight and Coffee.

good:
1.Cheap! Priced at Php 129 ($2.99)
2.Easier to use than pencils and liquid eyeliners.
3.Pointed brush tip for easy application of thin lines.
4.Yes, It's waterproof.

not that good:
1. When application, The ink fades easily so shaking the pen is must (for the ink to flow down the brush). (VS eyeliner pencil)
2.Might dry up quickly so cover the pen if not in use.
3.Few applications is needed to build up color.


Eyeliner pen close-up.

Thin line (upper line) made by using only the tip of the eyeliner pen. Thick line made by lying down the brush. To make it last for hours, minimum of 4 applications is needed.

It's really cheap but I don't think It's worth to repurchase. I think I'm gonna try next the In2it eyeliner pen which is double the price of ELF eyeliner pen. I've only tried it once cos a friend of mine owns one. So... that's it! A bit satisfied.

Nail Color Mania

This was the color i wore last week. I'm wearing blue right now. hehe. It's called 'Ballerina'. Cute eh? ^_^

OH! that's not a dead cat on the background. he's just sleeping. LOL

BTW, What nail color are you wearing today? :)

NICHIDO Eyebrow Liner Duo Kit Review

I bought this NICHIDO eyebrow kit last week, together with the ELF concealer which is on my last post. This is actually the first eyebrow kit i bought/have. I usually go with eyebrow liners.

NICHIDO Eyebrow Liner Duo Kit (Coffee/Black 01)

good:
1. Cheap! priced only at Php 238.00 ($5.52)
2. Pigments are easy to blend especially when used with water.
3. Comes with a brush and tweezer.
4.Bristles of th brush is made of plastic (i think its nylon) and can hold enough powder, tho...
4. Case design is cute and the product is secured enough.


not that good:
1. The brush (handle) is too short. It measures for almost 5cm from the tip of the bristles to the end of the handle.
2.Isn't waterproof. :(


Product close-up.

The cute tweezer with 'nichido' name on it. Kawaii! ^_^

Image above (with flash). I used the brown one (Coffee) and blended it with a hint of water.

I'd say this eyebrow kit is very cute and easy to use tho I saw an eyebrow kit in In2it which is also cheap. I think it's priced at Php 280 or more (not sure. haha). It has 3 shades of brown and is waterproof! Oh crap, I should've bought it instead. LOL

ELF corrective concealer product review

I don't possess a smooth and acne-free face, which i am very much aware of, that's why concealers are important for me. lol. I bought this ELF corrective concealer last week and here's what i have to say:


ELF Corrective Concealer

good:
1. Cheap. Priced at Php 249.75 ($5.79)
2. Cool deal. 4 different shades for different skin imperfections.
3. It comes with a mirror.
4. Brush is perfect to use for covering pimples/acne. It's cute!
5. Classy case design. Though...

not that good:
1. Doesn't conceal much. I need to apply as much as 5 swipes.
2.The green one didn't really work that well.
3. I really have this weird feeling about the case design cos it really looks like NARS. Try looking at NARS' cosmetics online and you'll feel the same. lol

The brush i was whining about. SEE! it's cute!

I used the pink one and blended it with the darkest brown shade (left eye). The pink one really did some magic and covered my eyebugs/dark circles. HA!

For some who aren't aware of pink and green concealers click HERE and HERE. It might help. ^_^

How bout you? what concealer do you use?
