    MAC Glamour Daze Collection Review: MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish


    Upon seeing swatches and reviews online, the first product that I really wanted to purchase from the MAC Glamour Daze collection is the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Whisper of Gilt. It’s a re-promoted item from one of the previous MAC collections. The fact that it’s being re-promoted means that it really is a good product. When I swatched it in the store, the swatches made me fall in love with the product even more! I had a limited budget so I had two choices: buy individual products from the collection or buy a set. I couldn’t afford buying the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish along with a set. I wanted the Extra Dimension Skinfinish more than I wanted the set so I decided to purchase individual products from the collection.

    There were two extra dimension finishes: Super and Whisper of Gilt. I got Whisper of Gilt because the MAC makeup artist suggested that Whisper of Gilt suited my skin tone more than Superb. Accroding to her, Superb is more suited of morenas or tan skinned women.

    What I Love:

    • the swirly design’s GORGEOUS! it doesn’t last very long though because it started fading away after a couple of times of using it
    • the color of the product is a beautiful champagne gold shade
    • it has just the right amount of shimmer (not too shimmery)
    • a little goes a long way with this product
    • it serves it’s purpose as a highlighter very well
    • it can be used as an eye shadow (all over the lid)
    What I don’t like
    • this comes in a limited edition packaging and I don’t like the material of the packaging because it accumulates fingerprints easily
    • it’s quite expensive at PHP1750 a pop!
    • none much!
    Tips and Recommendations
    • use an angled brush or stipling brush to apply
    • swipe on top of your cheek bones; used you pupil as a marker and swipe from below your pupil (you don’t want your ENTIRE face to shine. ;) The key to highlighting is to highlight the areas on your face where the light hits)
    • you may use this as a highlighter on your brow bone and cupid’s bow as well
    • remember: a little goes a long way!
    I’ve been using this almost everyday and I ABSOLUTELY love it! I recommend this to those who are looking for a nice highlighter. Although this is a new holy grail product of mine, highlighters in general aren’t really part of the basic makeup must-haves. Highlighters serve like a cherry on top of a cake. You don’t really need it, but it’s definitely something nice to have! :) Makeup enthusiasts and normal girls alike will definitely love this product!

    Review: Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus



    One thing I love about my friends is that they how much I LOOOVE makeup which is why I feel extra touched when they give me makeup as presents. teehee!  Anyway, a friend of mine recently gave me the Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus Mascara as a present for my birthday. The black version is actually my holy grail mascara. Imagine my excitement when my friend told me that the mascara is actually color blue! Scroll down for my full review. :)


    I’ve love Majolica Majorca’s packaging! The design of the packaging of this mascara is compliant to the overall theme of Majolica Majorca’s products. The overall theme of their products usually gives off a “royal” vibe. Their products look like something Marie Antoinette would use! :) The body and the applicator of the mascara is made of plastic. :)

    Also, even though the mascara is indeed blue, it comes off as black when applied.

    What I love:

    • very nice packaging
    • holds a curl for almost the entire day
    • very wearable!
    • superbly lengthens my non-existent lashes
    • sweat proof


    What I dont like:

    • OMG nothing. haha! I honestly can’t think of anything I don’t like about this!

    Overall Tips and Recommendations

    Remember to swipe off excess product on a tissue to avoid clumping. To maximize the products potential, make sure to coat your lashes from the roots to the tips. However, don’t go overboard. :D 1-2 coats should enough. You don’t want spider looking lashes. ;)

    This is my first time to try a colored mascara and I really like this mascara because it’s totally wearable! I wore this to school today and no one really commented anything about my “colored” lashes. I have seen really tinted mascaras over the internet so I think this is a tamer version of those crazy looking tinted mascaras. This is perfect for those who want to experiment with their makeup but don’t want to go overboard. ;)

    Have you tried this mascara? What’s the craziest makeup trend are you willing to try? :) I would love to hear your experiences below! :)

    That’s it and thanks for reading! :)

    Mac Mineralize Blush in Gentle


    Hello there!

    Today I will be reviewing my first blusher from Mac! A good friend of mine got it for me on my birthday. :) Anyway, let’s get to the review!

    Mac Mineralize Blush in Gentle


    Housed in Mac’s signature black plastic packaging, this blusher has a gorgeous pink raspberry shade. When swatched in outdoors, it looks like a normal pink blush. However, when I stepped inside the house, I noticed gold shimmer laced  through the swatch. When you look closely into the pan, you can see hints of super micro mini glitter. However, I don’t find chunks of glitter on my face when the product is applied. I LOVE how this blush looks on my skin! I have fair skin and this blusher makes me look flushed in a nice way.

    What I like

    • the product is quite pigmented
    • the product is also very buildable
    • the product isn’t too shimmery on my skin
    • the product is durable (I accidentally dropped it as I was taking photos of it. My heart dropped when the blusher fell but it was good as new when I picked it up! Phew!)
    • it is not limited edition
    What I do not like:
    • the product is quite pricey at PHP1500 a piece
    Overal Tips and Recommendations 
    I will definitely purchase this product again! For a light application, use a stippling brush. To build up the application, use an ordinary fluffy blush brush!  :)
