Outbreak Manila

Out of boredom I made fake blood that’s good enough to eat! (hint: chocolate) :P Don’t you just love fx makeup?! LOL so ye, I am really excited for Outbreak Manila this Saturday, July 28th! My school, Makeup Design Academy, is the official makeup team since it started (proud alumnus). No, I dint attend school for fx makeup but thank God for YouTube! Seriously!!!! You learn so many things in an instant! Last Halloween I did the same look but it was more of a glam zombie look.

But ye, this is just a quick post hihi, wanted to share what I did while watching True Blood. For more makeup tips and whatnot, do drop by my Facebook page! (:

Oh! And see you there!

Review: Charm Travel Pro V3 Brush Set

So I’ve been looking for a great travel brush set and loads are being sold online.. I can’t seem to find a set that’s compact and complete until I came across the Charm Travel Pro V3 Brush Set! And lucky me, it was on sale for Php2,000.00 (pre-buy deal) when I saw it! BUT, I dint click the checkout button just yet hihi. I am very particular when buying brushes (or anything) especially when I haven’t touched or seen it personally. I have to know if it’s soft, not scratchy, quality is awesome and whatnot.. so I googled reviews and videos. Only after seeing Lush Angel‘s video convinced me to get this set, seriously! Must be her charm! (:

Charm Travel Pro V3 is a 14-piece brush set made from the softest bristles guaranteed to help you achieve beautiful looks wherever you may be! What I also love is that the pouch it comes with is big enough to fit my everyday beauty essentials, how awesome is that?! AWE-SOME! lol

The set includes:

  • Stippling Brush
  • Powder Brush
  • Foundation Brush
  • Angled Blush Brush
  • Concealer Brush
  • Wet/Dry Eyeshadow Brush
  • Blending Brush
  • Pencil Point Brush
  • Angled Eyeshadow Brush
  • Flat Liner Brush
  • Bent Eyeliner Brush
  • Eyebrow Shading Brush
  • Brow Spoolie
  • Lip Brush
  • and of course, a classy-sassy black faux croc pouch with hot pink zippers and lining!

Added 5 more tools that I can’t just seem to part with: tiny concealer brush, Trim tweezers, Sigma SS217, Sonia Kashuk crease brush, MAC 266 for my brows (it’s the best brow brush there is).

Comparing Charm Travel Pro with my other travel-sized brushes (MAC and Sigma):

And I got a freebie, cool beans! :P

And did a look last night cos I can’t sleep and figured might as well test the brushes! Ps: Shameless plugging: LIKE my Facebook page! :P

Washed, tried and tested! Overall, I am pretty impressed and satisfied with the Charm Travel Pro V3! So happy with my purchase and I would highly recommend this to all brush-junkies/makeup enthusiast out there!

Retails for Php2,500 + FREE shipping nationwide!

Benefit Beauty Kits

I love how Benefit makes everything fun-sized with their cute retro packaging! I find it exciting every-single-time!

Now.. I am more interested with the concept of these Complexion Kits than the other Lip and Cheek Kits that came out. Although all would be nice kit fillers; you just need to depot the powders in a palette, concealers and the rest pop out with ease (no problem with that), you instantly get three shades of foundations, blushes, loads of primer, glosses, highlighters and tints! You know you love to stock up on those lol.

The Complexion Kits (in light, medium, dark) include: The POREfessional (primer), Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow (brightening liquid foundation), 2 shades of Boi-ing concealers, Hello Flawless! (powder) and a brush. Retails for $30.00 (approx. Php1,400 w/ tax).

Can’t wait to grab a hold on these!

Available at Benefit and Sephora
