I just bought a couple of items the other day and yesterday. This is just a super minihaul. Just three items. LOL.
The first item that I got is from Maybelline. It’s The Hyper Curl Volum Express.
And this costs..
Php 249. :)
I’m not a huge fan of mascaras in general, like what I’ve said in a previous entry, I really don’t need them since my lashes would stay curled the whole day. But you know, it’s good to have a mascara, especially for special occasions. I got this because this is the cheapest of the bunch from Maybelline. HAHA. But I really like this. No clumps and it literally gives your lashes volume! :)
The next item that I’ve got is from Fanny Serano, it’s their long wear gel liner. I’ve seen a lot of Pinay gurus from YT use this.
Php 225. If you purchase one with a brush, it’ll cost you Php 299. Buti nalang the sales lady told me you can get one without a brush.
This is what it looks like inside, it’s in a frosted glass with hard plastic lid. Very chic!
And it has a good amount of product inside.
Used with a liner brush / with finger. It’s super pigmented and very creamy, very easy to use. And truly it is long lasting. I’ve used it for around 10 hours in a bit of a bitchy weather/temperature and it didn’t smudged or fade.
And the last item that I got is just a storage piece. I ran out of place to put in my stuff so I decided to get another basket. I usually buy my stuff from Saizen or Daiso cause it’ll only cost me Php 88/85 pesos. Lol! I picked up a basket and when I was about to pay for it, it’s 2 for 1! :D YAY!
This is what it looks like. And it also has small detachable plastic dividers that looks like this..
I hope you guys enjoyed this super mini haul! :)
*EVERYTHING was purchased with my own money!*

Let me just explain first.
Again, I’ve already applied a primer (ELF Mineral Infused Primer from their studio line), used concealer on my undereye (ELF Color Correcting Concealer + Nichido stick foundation) and set it with a powder foundation (Mac Studio Fix Powder Foundation). This is also my best attempt in defining my brows. :/ I need to have it thread.
I began with using the jumbo pencil as a base, I’ve applied it all over my lid.
I’m setting it with a champagne colored eyeshadow.. Again all over the lids.
I used the third color on the first row. It’s not too shimmery yet not too matte.
Now using the crease color from the Maybelline quad, just pack the color on your crease to give definition to your eyes.
Using the Liner color again from the same quad and an angled brush, just apply it to the half of your lower lash line. Feel free to apply a pencil liner to your water line.
After that, using the liquid liner, make sure to line it as close to your lids as possible. No wings for this since our focus is the lips.
Curl your lashes as you normally do. Use a mascara to hold your curls. (I didn’t used any mascara cause I don’t use mascara personally, my lashes are cooperative enough to stay curled for a long time even without a mascara. :P)
Apply your favorite blush on the apples of your cheek.
Moisturize your lips using your favorite lip balm.
And now the fun part. Apply your trusty red lipstick. Use a lip brush on the edges of your lips for a more precise application.
And here’s a compilation of the final look. (With different angles of lighting. Lol.)
Closer look of the eye makeup.
Closer look of the whole face makeup.
And there you have it. :) I hope you enjoyed this *trial* tutorial. Hahaha! Have a good day everyone. :)

My cousin just got back from Hawaii and gave me this as a pasalubong. This is the ExpertWear® Eyeshadow Quad in Chai Latte. I might be wrong cause I’ve been trying to look for this kind of quad, but I don’t think that this is available locally (PI), cause the only quads I’m seeing on Maybelline counters are the Silk Eyeshadow.
So here’s what it looks like! It comes with four colors and two sponge-tip applicators. The shadows are labeled with numbers, 1 Base 2 Lid 3 Crease 4 Liner. :)
Right at the back you would see the application instructions and which goes where.
I’m very excited to use this quad because it’s the season for the wearable-brown smokey look. Hahaha.
Here are the swatches. No primers whatsoever. On my fingers the shadows look very pretty…
But no.. It’s very sheer. Not even buildable. Imagine my disappointment when I literally had to rub the shadow, especially the 1Base! I’m very disappointed with this quad. I know how great eyeshadows from Maybelline are.. And I don’t know if I got a defective one!
And yes, I did try to use this quad and I followed the instructions. I used ELF Mineral Infused Face Primer (to which I will do a review cause this product is too good!). I used for the all over lid color (1 Base) an eyeshadow brush, I’ve used the sponge tip applicator that came with it, but to no avail, I still have difficulty in trying to pickup the product or pack my brush/sponge with the shadow.. Too sheer. And when you try to build it, it looks a bit chalky. Not happy with that. The 2 Lid color is actually very beautiful, but the staying power isn’t that good. I like the 4 Liner color because I feel that it’ll be perfect for the daytime smokey eye look. 3 Crease color isn’t too bad, especially.. Of course.. On the crease. But you have to really build it to achieve that beautiful color.
This is the only decent picture that I got because the lighting in my room isn’t very good. And yes, I have my eyes closed, and I’m sitting on the floor. Haha! And excuse my ugly walls as well.
All in all, this quad is pretty disappointing. But I think I have ideas on how to use it.
Overall rating: 6/10 I just really hate the fact that I couldn’t pick up any product on the Base color!
