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.

As parties comes in left and right this holiday season, it is just right to ramp it up, while you are already at it, looking fab and pretty. Last Saturday, Watsons treated us and some chosen BDO Prestige Cardholders to a grand Holiday Glam Makeover by Maybelline and L’Oreal.


The makeover workshop was jumpstarted by Maybelline New York’s Senior Makeup Artist, Harold Santos. He worked on the model and taught us some basics on the 60’s look. Particularly the winged eye look.
