New In: My Make Up Kit

It’s been quite some time since I last shared with you my makeup must-haves. And just like any other girl, that list has been growing longer and longer each day. Just when you thought you’ve already found that perfect primer or eye shadow palette or blush, another one comes along. Sigh. It’s so hard being girl. Haha!

Let’s start with the basics, shall we? Guess what’s inside this cute powder blue case.

Dashè Cosmetics brush set

The perfect set of brushes to bring along to just about anywhere! What I love about Dashè Cosmetics’ brush sets is that they’re always so portable and travel-friendly. They have one of the best packaging/cases I’ve seen around. This one though stays here at home, sitting comfortably on top of my dresser. Whenever I use this set, I feel like such a legit make-up artist with my fancy little brush set and case. I wish I can have my initials engraved on the leather though. That would be so cool! It’s a pretty nice Christmas gift idea too!

The Body Shop Lily Cole Pearl Radiance Primer

I don’t really have a lot of makeup from The Body Shop, which is a shame really because The Body Shop’s products have always been cruelty-free. I’m glad I got to try this one though. It’s a primer from their limited edition Lily Cole collection. It’s so good at giving that radiant and pinkish glow. Although this can be used alone, I usually use it as a makeup base. It creates a that pearly illuminated finish, which I love!

Bobby Brown Desert Twilight Eye Palette

I AM IN LOVE with this eye shadow palette from Bobbi Brown! I’ve already raved about this to practically ALL my girl friends. I describe this as Urban Decay’s Naked Palette version 2.0–a more compact version of it with just the essential or best colors included. WIN!

And I know this might not matter to some of you, but the designer in me just can’t help but notice its sleek and slim design. Plus points for its steel finish too! Bobbi Brown, you definitely nailed this! Ikaw na! I give you an A+ (as if my opinion matters LOL)!

Benefit They’re Real! mascara | MAC eyebrow mascara

Before I got my lash extensions from Nail Spa Lounge by Ellabell, I was using Benefit’s They’re Real! mascara for my lashes because my Majolica Majorca and Lancome mascaras were already finished. As usual, I was skeptical at first because let’s face it, most brands tend to oversell their mascaras. How many times have we heard that this and that can do wonders to our lashes? But boy oh boy, this one is REALLY good! And you know me, once I find a good mascara, I hold on to them like their gold! This one is definitely golden!!!

As for my eyebrows, I use MAC’s eyebrow mascara. If you’re a makeup junkie, I’m sure you already have this in your makeup kit. It’s probably the best eyebrow mascara out there, especially for light haired people like me who don’t want to dye their eyebrows.

Dashè Cosmeticsfalsies

What on earth will we do without falsies? It’s every girl’s secret weapon! Unlike other falsies, these aren’t that heavy which is good because they look more natural than fake. I mean, just because they’re falsies, it doesn’t mean you have to let the whole world know they are, right? The goal is to make the world think you were born with them. Cue Maybelline’s jingle… “Maybe she’s born with it! Maybe it’s Maybelliiiiiiiiiine!”

The Body Shop Lily Cole Lip and Cheek Dome | Majolica Majorca Puff De Cheek in Cherry Macaron

I’ve already professed my love for Majolica Majorca’s Puff De Cheek blushes a long long time ago. Here’s another winner! It’s a limited edition blush from their Psychedelicious collection which I blogged about before here. You know how cute Japanese girls apply their blush right on the apples of their cheeks? They use this doll-like pink color to achieve the look right? If you want to get that same look, this is the blush for you. It’s highly pigmented with a cherry pink color that’s just too sweet for words!

Another notable makeup for our cheeks is The Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Dome from the same Lily Cole collection. Since it can also be used for the lips, its texture feels a little like that of a lip balm’s.  I use this more as a highlighter/illuminator so I usually apply blush powder underneath it first and then apply this on top to give my cheeks a peachy sheen effect.

Topshophighlighter in Sunbeam

Dear RSSI, please bring Topshop’s makeup line to Manila! Whenever I go abroad, I always make it a point to check Topshop’s makeup collection. This is the latest addition to my growing collection of Topshop beauty gunk. I use it whenever I want to get that sun-kissed glow and to highlight my cheeks. Lakas maka-fresh!

LushEmotional Brilliance Lip Colors in Glamorous, Drive and Passionate

I didn’t know Lush carried makeup already too so I was pleasantly surprised when this arrived at my doorstep. At first, I didn’t really know what they were. Nail polish? Liquid liner? Magic potion ala Alice in Wonderland? Haha! Little did I know that these are actually lippies! How cute, right? The colors are so bright and pigmented I could not believe my eyes when I tried them on! Emotional Brilliance is definitely an appropriate name for the collection.

Topshop in Infrared | YSL Rouge Pure Shine in No. 31 | Estée Lauder Pure Color in Nectarine (26) | Topshop in Ohh La La | Topshop in Whimsical | MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in What A Blast!

I’m sure most of you already know how much I love pink lipsticks. In my first makeup must-haves post, I showed you my favorite lippies which mainly consist of different shades of pink (which probably look more similar than different in your eyes). Now, in an effort to diversify my lipstick collection, I’ve started to embrace orange lipsticks and… gasp! Is that red I see? Awww, the little girl is now a lady! LOL! Anyway, out of all these lipsticks, MAC’s Pro Longwear Lip Pencil is the best in terms of longevity and pigmentation.#justsharing

So there you have it! Another set of beauty must-haves. I’m sure after reading this, at least one of you will ask for a make up tutorial (again). To you I say hold your horses! I’ve already listed it down on my to-do list, but until I find the time to make one, I hope this one will do for now. :)

    I love the way you introduce each and every piece of your must-haves! You are a perfect endorser of beauty products, I must say! *giggles* Btw, do you match up your make-ups everytime you wear them? I mean, when you use shade of pink for your lips, do you prefer using the same shade for your cheeks and eyes too? Thanks a bunch! Keep inspiring girls like me :)

    I ordered Benefit’s They’re Real mascara through their online store and had it shipped to my Mom’s US address. I can’t wait for my Mom to come home so I can try it. Btw, I will be one of those who will wait for your make-up tutorial. :-)
