My top 3 drugstore highlighters
Today I am really excited to share my drugstore highlighters, which are so affordable and easily to blend into my skin. What I gonna share are more like wet-looking and still have strong reflection when facing the light. And even though Colourpop is not really a drugstore brand, the price is really competitive, and the products are amazing. Let’s start from the cheapest one, the mineral highlighter #010 from Catrice, which is an Illuminator cooked baked powder and micro mineral pigments that reflect light to a shiny appearance. This is a beautiful silver pearl color, and I can see a little pink flash after applying on my face. And it can be built up to get a really intense glow and wet-looking.

trying flower beauty🌸
for awhile i’ve been wanting to try flower beauty bc i love drew barrymore and have heard good things about it. these products are also all cruelty free!!! i went to cvs yesterday and decided to pick somethings up!! here are my thoughts: FLOWER - Lip and Cheek Gel Crush i was really intrigued when i first saw this! i’m always looking for new blushes bc i love blushes and i am always searching for my new favorite. it’s super creamy and just the right amount of sheerness. i got raspberry crush and it smells exactly like a strawberry shortcake doll 💗💗 there’s also small sparkles which is soooo cute :) overall love this product, gave it 4 stars bc the color is lighter on the skin overtime but no big deal there’s still a rosy glow ✨ FLOWER - Petal Play Shadow Quad i saw these in the store and instantly fell in love. these quads reminded me of k beauty shadow quads bc they had beautiful shimmers! i got gilded lily and in bloom. i used the dark brown color in gilded lily as a soft eyeliner and i patted one of the shimmers on my eyes. such an easy cute look🌸 FLOWER - Color Shift Lip Smoothie i have really dry lips so it’s really hard for me to like lip products. they have to be super moisturizing and not irritate the skin around my mouth. this is just that. not only is it super silky, it gives such a nice gleam to the lips and gives you your own perfect pink. this formula adjusts to the pH of your lips in order to give you your perfect pink shade which i think is so coool!!! can’t wait to get more in the future✨✨ other products used (if ur interested in these i have other posts on my page discussing my opinions on them ❀): e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel COLOURPOP - Super Shock Highlighter wet n wild - Mega Volume Waterproof Mascara

MASCARA problems 😪
Hi guys !! Today I’m gonna make a review of my favourite affordable brand (essence) but I’m kinda disappointed because as you guys can see I used the essence - I Love Extreme Curl And Volume Mascara and after minutes (even after spray my miracle URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray Duo ) the lashes stain my face, you guys can see points just below my lower lashes :( However it’s because this formula is not water proof so I’m not gonna blame essence but I chose the wrong formula for lower lashes, it must be water proof to avoid this! And another thing, wet n wild - MegaGlo Highlighting Powder amazing glow in sunlight and the blush that I used was FENTY BEAUTY - Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush color fuego If you guys have another suggestion please comment :)))) Thank you so much 😊 Xoxo 😘 💋
Drugstore makeup that blew my mind! Pt. 3
This bronzer stick is a bit darker than my Golden Shinmer, and is a great one to use for contouring. It blends seamlessly, and applies like a dream! Also contains coconut oil in the middle to moisturize the skin! Shade is Bronze Splash!

🌹Which one you would choose? 🌹
First of all, I have light skin tone and the photos are taken under natural sunlight. For me, blush is very important in my makeup routine. And rose color blushes are my favourites. 🌹 They help a lot in making me look more energetic with just a little pink color on cheeks. 😊 Here are my rose blushes and my thought of each one. MILANI Rose Powder Blush #Romantic Rose MILANI - Rose Powder Blush This one is not pigmented. But on the flip side, this blush is very suitable for makeup beginners. It won't go wrong easily. It's light rose color on cheeks. 3CE blush #rose beige 3CE - Take A Layer Multi Pot For Lips, Cheeks & Eyes This one can create a matte and foggy finish on your face. The color is a little bit cinnamon if you only apply one layer, but would be more peachy if you build it up. Rimmel London Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush #Santa rose RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Soft Colour Powder Blush This one has a big problem - the powder is not solid enough. It's also not pigmented. I don't quite like the shade either.🤔 Some people think it as a dupe of Clinique's blush #05. But I don't think so. Clinique is definitely way better than this one. Among these three, personally I prefer 3CE. The texture is great and the color is exactly what I want for a rose shade blush.

Drugstore favorite 🙏🏼
Wet n Wild is one of my favorite drugstore brands, although some of their products have been hit or miss for me, when I found something I like it’s a true GEM! I like makeup I can apply with my fingers instead of a brush or sponge so I love creams and stick forms best; I purchased the wet n wild - MegaGlo Makeup Stick Blush in Peach Bums on a whim because it reminded of the Fenty blush stick in shade Yacht a bit and also or Nars’ Orgasm, I feel the three are similar in that they’re peachy, warm shades with the finest shimmer and all look amazing on the skin, but Wet n Wild is considerably more affordable but doesn’t compromise quality. I love that I can apply this on my cheeks as blush and not even need a highlight or as a topper for my blush and it’s so beautiful and glowy. After trying Peach Bums for a while I decided to pick up the shade Hustle & Glow, a more orangey shade without the shimmer but all the glow! Needless to say it looks amazing as well; they’re not as long lasting as I’d like them to be but I think for the price and accessibility these can’t be beaten, definitely a drugstore favorite that I’d recommend for anyone getting started with makeup!

My GO-TO Highlighters for…
✨Highlighters✨ made my day glow, and here is my highlighter inventory! Milani- Strobelight Instant Glow Powder Love the product easy to work with the perfect amount of glow and shine, i use it as my go-to for workdays, and in my experience, you do need a good highlighter brush for it to stand out. I love using it right after I sent the skin with setting spray. It's a very blinding highlight with good pigment!! It definitely matches my fair skin. Colourpop-Flexitarian Super shock glow ✨ I feel as though colourpop highlighters come in every delicious shade, and they have the perfect shimmering finish. Flexitarian is my go-to for a night out or party, I've been grabbing it for a super luminous all over cheek look! Fenty Beauty-Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby While I appreciate the effort to have one toned-down shade paired with one super-shimmery shade, I didn't spend this much money for half of it to be unnoticeable. I think half of this highlight is boring; to be exact, Mean Money is pointless. It doesn’t show up at all, as I have to swipe it multiple times to notice anything on my skin, whereas I love Hu$tla Baby and use it when i hanging out with my friends. Hu$tla Baby is really potent, so a small dab is very visible and is the main reason I bought this.

Baddie On A Budget
Hello beautiful people! on this post i decided to share with yall some of my drugstore ride or dies! FACE/BASE NYX - Bare With Me Cannabis Primer MAYBELLINE - SuperStay 24H Full Coverage Liquid Foundation e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer L'ORÉAL - L'Oreal Paris Infallible More Than Concealer 10ml #Quo Beauty - Blush Duo - Peach Perfect[products]#[FourStars] MILANI - Rose Powder Blush MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Multi-Use Foundation Stick ￼i find that i would constantly reach for these products more than others! my top picks for this list, however, would be the L’Oreal concealer and the Maybelline foundation stick! If you’re wondering why i have two of them foundation pics, it’s bc I use one as a contour stick, and the other as a spot corrector! i love how they blend out perfectly no matter what foundation i use. LIPS essence - Shine Shine Shine Holiday Kit NYX - Suede Matte Lipstick L'ORÉAL - Rouge Signature Matte Liquid Lipstick MILANI - Keep It Sweet Sugar Lip Scrub ￼when i got the Essence shine shine shine lipgloss, it was CLEAR, i swear!!! it’s the best clear gloss for its price, in my opinion. yall can see how used and love this product is on the picture lol. both the Nyx and the L’Oreal matte lippies are my fave when i want to rock a nude lip, and what better way to prevent crusty lips than a lip exfoliator! i like the Milani one because it did the job for me AND it tastes good (let’s be honest, sometimes we “accidentally” ingest these). EYES wet n wild - Bretman Rock Shadow Palette NYX - Ultimate Shadow Palette pixi - Liquid Fairy Lights L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Mascara ￼when it comes to eye make up, i either tone it AAAALL the way down, or i go HAM with colors. these palettes give me both! plus points for Bretman’s palette too, because I AM ALL HERE FOR THE FILIPINO PRIDE! the Nyx palette is my first ever rainbow palette, so it will always have a place in my heart. the Fairy Lights, i find, is a good dupe for the Stila liquid shadows, and the Telescopic mascara is the ONLY mascara for me. and there you have it! if you’re looking to have a good makeup day that can also save some $$$, try these products! special mention to MILANI - Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Eyeliner : this guy never failed me yet! i threw out my empty, and I’m in dire need of a new one lol. Hope this post helps some yall! Happy hunting!

Highlight: solid or liquid? I prefer the former
The essence of putting on highlight is literally reflected in its meaning: to help you shine as much as possible. I have many highlights and honestly, I love all of them. But if you still insist that I should rank them by their categories. I would definitely prefer a liquid one to be solid! I was used to applying a solid highlight on my face. And I have two similar products: colourpop flexitarian and Becca vanilla quartz. They are both very natural, revealing a steady shiny beauty of young girls. The texture of the former is like ice cream. The latter is like a milkshake. They both flash but not give that kind of iridescent shimmering. So sometimes I find this two less brilliant when I put on exaggerated makeup. Then I found cover fx moonlight, a liquid highlight. It is bold enough for me to shine. First of all, it is very pigmented, reflective and shimmery. The beautiful brown makes my skin shine with the foundation. It is like moonlight, very beautiful in the evening. I feel like my highlight echoing the stars or moon when the sky is clear. Second, the highlight is more delicate, conveying a sense of luxury. Third, it is fluid which reflects the beauty of my whole set of makeup: my eye shadows, my blush and my lipstick. It is definitely a good one for occasions where people need to shine and kill all.
