Hi guys! If you have been reading my recent posts, you are most likely aware of the collaboration I participated in with Michelle of All About Being Glam and Michelle of Micmic's Corner. If you want to know more about our challenge, please read September Lovin: Intro. By the way, this is the second leg of our challenge. Our first challenge is Disney Inspired Makeup Look. Check out my Disney Inspired Look *Jasmine*.
I assume that you're all familiar with the 500 Makeup Challenge since a lot of beauty bloggers have done this already. One is supposed to create a makeup look of choice using makeup products that would not exceed 500 pesos. Brushes not included! Doing this is actually challenging yet fun! I wanted to buy products that I'd still be able to use after the challenge.
Here are my picks!
#1 Foundation -San San Two Way Cake in #2|100php
I've tried this product before and I can say that it's good enough for the price. My shade is only available in refill version so I got it right away for only 100php!
#2 Eyebrow pencil - Ever Bilena Eye Pencil in Brown| 95php
I've always loved Ever Bilena's Eye Pencils! Creamy and easy to work with. I used this to fill in my brows and to contour my nose. Yay for multi-functional products!
#3 Blush On - Allue Pretty Cheeks in Peach Pie| 75php
I always go for peach/orange/brownish blush for my cheek color. Pink blushes don't suit me! I'm quite impressed with this product for its price. I might put up a review for this one!
#4 Eyeliner - Generic/brandless eye liner| 30php
I think this eyeliner is of the same quality as HengFang liquid eyeliners. Smudge proof and easy to apply! I'm impressed! I didn't get any pricey eyeliner because I'm still at my learning stage in lining my eyes. I have a love-hate relationship with eye liners.
#5 Eye shadow - Qianyu Shimmer Palette| 55php
When it comes to cheap eye shadows from China, I go for Qianyu because for its superb pigmentation! What I don't like about this eye shadow is it has too much shimmer making it difficult to blend.
#6 Lipstick - Excel Paris Matte Lip Cream # 510| 35php
Really gorgeous shade. If not for its super strong staying power, I'd love this.
The total cost of the products I bought is *drumrolls........390php! Yes that cheap!
And for my makeup look, I came up with something that can be worn from day to night!
I used the off white eye shadow from the Qianyu palette all over my lids and applied a little brown eye shadow on my outer v. Very subtle, right? To make my eye makeup a little interesting, I added a wing tip eyeliner!
And because I think I nailed the eye liner this time, I'll add an extra picture! I'm such a failure in lining my eyes, this is a rare moment! Haha!
I chose a vibrant lip color that I think would suit both day and night makeup looks. Would you agree? I love love love this gorgeous peachy/orangey shade!
So far, I'm quite pleased with my purchases. I believe I can still use the products mentioned above even after this challenge. A makeup look need not be expensive, right?
