review, eyes: Etude House Eyeliner

Etude House – Oh m’eye line liquid liner
My favorite liquid eyeliner so far! You can count me in as one of those people who can’t live without eyeliner but I won’t go to the extremes as having one tattooed on my eyes… I love Korean Make up Products mainly because they’re gentle and they seem to close my pores whenever I use them, that aside, I bought the etude house liquid eyeliner in black.

The brush is one of the reasons I love this product, it’s easy to control and easy to paint with. The product itself is flawless… by flawless I mean, it’s pigmented, it does what you want it to do. It dries like a dream, not too fast and not too slow, after application I just had to wait a second and it’s done. It doesn’t smudge and most of all it doesn’t irritate my eyes.

The down side? I’ve been using this product for a year and for an eyeliner, it’s so bulky! I often carry a couple of eyeliners with me and the packaging is crowding up my make up bag. The product itself also dries up on the brush so I need to clean it with a tissue often, but it’s not a big deal since it’d be weird if it didn’t clump after using it for a long time.

But over all, it does what it’s supposed to do flawlessly. Whenever I use it I feel confident throughout the day that it wouldn’t cake, peal or smudge. It highlights my eyes elegantly and I would definitely purchase this product again and again.

review, face: The Body Shop- All in one Face Base

The Body Shop- All in one Face Base

I love this product, I purchased mine at a their retail store here in the Philippines. I recommend it for everyday use to people with sensitive skin, or even those who don’t. First off, it’s available for all skin tones, you just have to really look and find what’s perfect for your skin. I use this as a foundation and a face base, sometimes I don’t even have to do touch-ups (i don’t have oily skin.). Most people don’t like the compact design for its bulkiness, but I find it adorable and sturdy, inside, there’s a compartment for your sponge that separates it from the powder ergo, the oil from constant usage doesn’t spread and it’s hygienic.

The application is so light and thin that it feels like I’m not wearing any foundation/make up at all but it covers up eye bags and uneven skin tone decently.

My only qualm is that, upon purchase, their staff and employees are a bit ‘unfriendly’, compared to those in Clinique, Face Shop, Mac. They constantly dot on you, and even though there are no other clients in the shop, they act as if they’re always in a rush.

All in all, it’s the product that really matters, but it wouldn’t hurt if they’d inject their staff with a bit of a smile or positive character.
