Revlon Brow Fantasy Pencil & Gel in 105 Brunette

I confess, my love affair with my favorite drugstore brand, Revlon, goes wayback.  I have a few Revlon posts to prove that: Revlon Khol in Midnight Blue, Revlon Colorstay Eye makeup, Revlon Warehouse Sale, et.al. I have since appreciated other drugstore brands like Elf and Maybelline. But it was not until my one week Personal Makeup Course in Maquillage Professional last week did I found out what I was missing. Because I was not born with enough brow hairs to even have them shaped, I am left to fashion to them manually every time. So the major keys are the skill to properly shape the brows and the tool/s that is/are used. My mom has tried to convince me time and again to get a tattoo done like hers to save myself the trouble of having to shape them every time. There is a better alternative to that nowadays – the Eyebrow Resurrection that Brow Haus is offering — I will blog about that later. As for the tattoo, that won’t be an option for me.

A great alternative to Make Up For Ever’s Eyebrow Corrector #0 is the Revlon Brow Fantasy Pencil & Gel in Brunette (pictured above) which retails for PhP 575 (approx. $14).

So during my course at Maquillage Professionel last week, I totally fell in love with Make Up For Ever‘s Eyebrow Corrector #0. We were told that all students are entitled to 10% off in the duration of our class. But the thing is, both their outlets in Serendra and Shangri-la have run out of the Eyebrow Corrector #0 and #2. I used both interchangeably during the course.

Make Up For Ever Eyebrow Corrector (above photo), which sells for more than PhP 1,200 (approx. $31) locally is the best that I have used to date. When I went to their Serendra outlet, I was told that it might not be until September til they have new stocks. And there was no way I was waiting until then. So I went to every possible beauty stall in the mall looking for the best alternative. Revlon is great at offering dual ended products – just like the Revlon Matte Luxurious Kohl Eyeliner. (more…)

e.l.f. love <3

 

I just love e.l.f.’s philosophy, “Every woman should have the opportunity to participate in innovation, without sacrificing her budget.” Ever since my friend, Iris introduced me to this brand, which I did not bother with previously, I had, not once regretted a purchase.  My confession of confessions: I have practically dropped the well known brands I’ve been using for e.l.f.

e.l.f. Mineral Lipstick in Royal Red

Here is another addition to my list of favorite lipsticks – e.l.f. Mineral lipstick in Royal Red. I have been using this over a month now and I am thoroughly loving it. Definitely zero burning feeling,  unlike what Revlon Colorstay lipsticks give me. Although it does not stay as long as my usual brands, it is just love that I can practically sleep with the lipstick still on lips.  What is sweeter is it only costs P399.75 (approx. $9).
