Shiseido Face Color Enhancing Trio in RD1 Apple

Two weeks ago, I reviewed Shiseido Lacquer Gloss in Baby Doll which I'm currently loving. Another item I got from Shiseido's Summer Collection is this Face Color Enhancing Trio in RD1 Apple. This is the first Shiseido blush that I've tried and well, I can tell you that it isn't bad. This compact has three sections, a light pink blush, a sheer tan for sculpting, and a peach highlighter. The powder is semi-matte but it somehow gives the face a sheer glow effect.

I have some points reviewed in this product so read on to know more about it!

Packaging. Shiseido has always been consistent about their classy packaging and this one fulfilled my expectations. Though it's a bit bigger than most blush packaging, I love how big the mirror is that it can already substitute my powder compact whenever I re-touch. Another thing is the brush. I tried Shiseido's Maquillage Eyeshadow before and there's a lovely super soft brush that comes with it. This brush resembles that soft brush from the eyeshadow and I love using it.

Revlon ColorStay Lipliner in Pink Rose

Hello everyone, how was your holy week? Mine was really great because I got to spend the weekend with my family in Batangas. It's also refreshing to be on a vacation and online hiatus. I'm actually planning to do it more often because I feel so human again and less of a computer. Haha.

The first lip product I have here is my current fave. I am not a lipliner person because I love applying my lipstick fresh from the tube without anything else. I also believe that lipliners alter the natural color of a lipstick specially the lighter ones. This product was from my haul a month ago and I can't believe that I'm posting this just now.

The shade is a raspberry pink color with tiny specs of glimmers. It is a great liner for darker colors but alter the color of the lighter ones. My MAC Please Me becomes a MAC Chatterbox whenever I use this lipliner beneath. But on the brighter side, it makes the darker lipsticks last longer than usual and even leaves a good amount of stain after meal of drink.

Project Pie Eastwood City: Friday Foodie

Okay so this picture reminds me so much about my long Ombre hair and my AWESOME Project Pie experience. It was a Wednesday night two weeks ago when my husband and I decided to catch the last full show of Captain America at Eastwood City. Having more than an hour of idle time, we decided to eat somewhere for dinner and we noticed that Project Pie is still open. They were supposed to close at 11 PM but they still accommodated us as their last customer for the night. Yay for Project Pie! :)

Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quad in Velvet Crush

Last week, I did my sister's makeup on her graduation day. (Congratulations to my Engineer sister by the way who graduated with a degree in B.S. Civil Engineering! YAY! #proudsister) My mom asked me to do her eye makeup as well and gave me this eyeshadow quad from Maybelline. It is common knowledge here in this blog that I love Maybelline products specially their powder and foundations. This is honestly the first eyeshadow that I tried from the brand. I am not sure if it's because I'm not an eyeshadow person or I just don't find their quads interesting.

I was first intimidated by the Purple and Lilac shades because I have always believed in the power of neutral tones in terms of eyeshadows and Gold was the loudest I wore so far.

What I like
This Maybelline eyeshadow quad is really cheap for just less than $5. For that price, I can't complain about the packaging being so flimsy and the applicator which is really useless. I also love the fact that it included the labels for each piece, though you should not limit yourself with the labels just because it says it's for the lid or for the crease. Another thing is the application direction on the back of the quad. It states a step-by-step instruction on how to apply it. If you're not that familiar with applying eyeshadow, this will be really helpful.
