My new makeup purchases!

After not doing any makeup posts lately because I’ve been so busy… Busy as a bee.. I went to SM Megamall for another session from Flawless for permanent hair removal, I stopped by the makeup section to purchase a new compact powder.

I liked Maybelline’s Clear Smooth Minerals very much that I decided to try another Maybelline product. And as I was about to pay, I passed by a couple of aisle and saw Fashion 21 and remembered about one of my favorite bronzers!
Maybelline Angelfit Foundation and Fashion 21 Duo Blush On

P679.00 for a compact.
They also sell refills.


I got the Light Beige shade because I am acidic. The next shade, which was I think Natural Beige was actually perfect for me. But since my makeup darkens after a while, I chose a shade lighter.


Here’s a closer look:

The Angelfit Foundation gives medium to full coverage. It can be used dry or wet. And if you look closely, there are pink shimmers, which they say is pink pearls and gives a nice glow to the skin.

I’ve tried using the foundation and I’ve been using is since I bought it and so far, it’s okay. I use it dry though, but it gives me enough coverage. The clear smooth minerals, in my opinion, gives fuller coverage. I’ll probably post a FOTD soon using this foundie.

  Fashion 21 Duo Blush On

Only P150.00

 

I bought this because I was able to try out their single blushes and fell in love with it. I think it was shade 5. I used it for a bronzed look and ran out of it. I was supposed to get just a single blush but saw that the duo one was really cheap so I opted for the latter.

I like that there’s cool pink and peach shades! :)

I’ve already roadtested the blushes. I was a little disappointed because it had a different quality from the single one I had before. It wasn’t as pigmented. I usually have to deposit more product in a stippling motion to my cheeks rather than just buffing or sweeping it. This shows that the duo isn’t as pigmented as the one I have tried before. Nevertheless, after stippling the color to my cheeks and blending it with a flat powder brush, I’m good to go. I like the shades. The shimmers give my apples a nice fresh look. :)

I’ll also post an FOTD using the Fashion 21 blush. Will I repurchase again? Maybe not. I’ll just buy the single ones since I liked the quality of it better.

  2. Is it good? I liked the minerals better in terms of coverage.
