When I was younger, I used to pay for the services of makeup artists whenever I will attend a party or if I am a part of the bridal entourage. In most cases, most makeup artists failed to make my eyes appear bigger. And these are professional makeup artists I am talking about ; p

Eyebrows | Etude House Drawing Eye Brow
I bought around 4 pieces of Etude House Drawing Eye Brow (in different shades) from Althea for only Php 35 each. It was on sale when the online shopping site was still in Beta mode.
Etude House Drawing Eye Brow is so easy to apply. To use the product, just twist the pencil and draw the eyebrow shape that you want. The shape of the pencil is slanted (as seen in the photo) making it is easier to trace your existing brows. The retractable pencil has a built-in brush on the other end so you won't be needing another tool to even out the shade of your brows.
Etude House Play 101 Pencil #36
I can't get enough of Etude House Play 101 Pencil, I already have two and I ordered two more pieces when I saw it on sale at Althea. Yes, I ordered again for the second time around!
What I like about Etude House Play 101 Pencil:
- Easy application
- No tugging on my lids
- Creamy texture
- Vivid color
- Lots of shades to choose from
- Inexpensive at only Php 270 on Althea!
K-Palette Essence in ShadowLiner 1Day Tattoo
K-Palette Essence in ShadowLiner 1Day Tattoo is love! I have all 4 shades. It was sent to me by the local distributor, BeautyBox Corp.
Look, ma! Smudge-free, no raccoon eyes!
In my opinion, it is one of the best eyeliner available in the market. In fact, I am willing to buy one if my stock runs out!
Maybelline Matte Touch Of Spice (660)
In general, I don't usually buy products on impulse but I can't help myself if I see one that I like especially if it is on S-A-L-E! Uh, the four letter word that always makes my wallet cry buckets! That was the case when I spy Touch Of Spice (660) while browsing the Maybelline counter. Boo hoo!
As I apply it on for the first time, I was expecting a nude lippie but I got a shade that's a little marsala-ish on my lips. It made me look a bit more mature ; ( But I can't complain as long as it does not dry my lips. This matte lipstick is a steal at Php 299!
How do I look? Was I able to pull off the metallic eye makeup?
