Review: FS Cosmetics Powder Blush

Since I love blushes, I got so excited when I saw the FS Cosmetics Powder Blush in Warm Chiffon in my May 2015 BDJ Box: Kiss Dry Goodbye! Another blush to try out!!! 😀

Well, not as a blush. Read on why…

Product Description (taken from the FS Cosmetics website):

Silky-soft powder blush blends smoothly and easily for a streak-free, natural finish look.

Given that this is a blush, I would love to see the shade from the outside. If it has a transparent top cover, it would be better. Mirror dilemma? It could be placed underneath the powder where you flip it up to see the mirror.

When I saw the shade name, I thought that Warm Chiffon would be a rosy type of color. Well, it’s not. Upon opening the compact, I saw that the color is a medium, skin-toned like shade. I immediately thought that this would not work well as a blush. It can work for contouring.

With that, I think that blushes should have shades that could really be used as a blush. For me, it is kind of confusing to see blush shades that should rather be used as a contour powder.

The compact also includes a brush inside. Since this is intended to be used as a blush, I think that this is fine. However, given that the shade is not so much for that purpose, I cannot use this. I will rather go for the usual contour brushes.

If you are looking for affordable yet high quality eyeshadows with a wide variety of available shades, I could recommend the FS Cosmetics Single Eyeshadow. They are really good that the color payoff of these eyeshadows are comparable to those high end brands. 😀

Review: FS Cosmetics Moisturific Moisture-Rich Lipstick

I hate chapped lips. I hate it when I get dry patches of skin on my lips. You cannot seem to perfect putting on lip color when your lips are dry. Another thing is that some lip products tend to make the lips even drier. Thus, worsening the chapped lips situation… But, how about those who are lipstick lovers yet their lips get dry easily? I suggest that you use lipsticks that have a moisturizing ingredient in them. Just like the FS Cosmetics Moisturific Moisture-Rich Lipstick… 😀

Product Description (taken from the FS Cosmetics website):

Glamorous, moisture-rich lipstick with Aloe-Vera, 
Vitamin E and Jojoba oil extracts. Deeply Nourishing. 
Terrifically moisturizing.

I got the shade Pink Chic. However, the color is not really a shade of pink. It is more of a coral shade. Nevertheless, I still like the shade because it is apt for daily use particularly for a day makeup.

I like using this lipstick because it does not dry my lips. I don’t have to use a lip balm prior to using this lipstick. It has a rich, colorful pigment that stays longer as compared to other moisturizing lipsticks that I have tried.

Review: FS Cosmetics Two Way Cake

Looking for a powder that could…

  • set your makeup perfectly?
  • give a nice and flawless finish?
  • could look nice in pictures?
  • less than Php500?

Too good to be true? Not really… 😉 Presenting the FS Cosmetics Two Way Cake in Organza. 😀

Product Description (taken from the FS Cosmetics website):

High quality cake foundation that can be applied wet or dry.
It contains Vitamin E that nourishes and softens skin.
It also has UV-protection and oil-control.

This is more than just a powder because it even has SPF35+ and PA+++. It is a makeup and skincare in one. Rest assured, your skin can be protected from the sun. Also, based on the product description, this has Vitamin E and oil control. For the oil control part, my face still gets oily after a few hours but it is not really a problem since I blot my face to get rid of the oil.

When you open the compact, it has the typical powder pan and mirror. I am not sure if the others like the scent of this powder. As for me, I find it too strong. It is like an odd, vanilla-like scent that is really strong. Nevertheless, the scent is gone once applied.

I asked the sales assistant in SM Makati which shade is suited for me. I particularly told her that I want a powder that won’t look too white in pictures especially if the camera used has a flash but is still close to my skin color. She suggested that I get the Organza shade.

Tryin’ Out Eye Makeup

I believe that doing eye makeup is so meticulous that I tend to just skip doing it. I don’t want to spend so much time blending eyeshadows particularly in the morning before going to work. Also, when you do eye makeup, there are a lot of products needed.

For today, since I have a bit of a free time to experiment with makeup, I decided to try putting on colors on my eyes. My last eye makeup post was July 28 and it is just for doing a winged eyeliner. Yup! That’s how long I don’t practice eye makeup. Sorry… 😛

So, here is the outcome of my practice. Haha! 😀
