Sleek Makeup i-Divine Nude Collection in Au Naturel Swatches and Review

Another nude palette: Sleek Makeup i-Divine Nude Collection in Au Naturel
which came all the way from UK. And you can purchase it from HERE.

Sleek's description from their website:
Sleek MakeUP’s Nude collection wraps up your autumn beauty look in one warm, earthy and wearable collection. The Au Naturel i-Divine provides an array of matte and pearlescent eye shadows providing a subtle yet contoured effect for day, that can be built up for a smoky glamorous effect using velvety browns and shimmering fawns.

Complete the look with Suede blush and Pout Polish in Bare minimum, for the natural look at its best!


Consists of warm and neutral shades perfect for everyday makeup, or dramatic smokey look for the night. It is a mix of matte and shimmer.
(Sorry for the damage, I dropped it and repaired with alcohol.)


And here are the swatches for each shade.


What I like about it:
Perfect for everyday makeup, and can be used for dramatic looks as well.
Very pigmented, a little goes a long way.
Slim and light packaging.
With a clear wide mirror and dual sponge tip applicator which is great for smudging.
Quite affordable because it was bought straight from the Uk (which is 6GBP or 453Php) compared with the prices locally in Php (ranges from 600-850Php).
Also a practical dupe/alternative for the very expensive Urban Decay Naked Palette.

What I don't like:
I wish they filled the pans generously. You can see that each pans were not filled that much. You can tell that each pan contains about 1/2 to 3/4 of what it can fill.

What do you guys think about this palette? Let me know in the comments below.

Nyx Runway Collection Bohemian Rhapsody Palette Swatches and Review

Hey everyone, so this review is so overdue. I have already used this Nyx Runway Collection Bohemian Rhapsody Palette a lot times and the review is just now.


This palette is just on of the collections from the NYX Runway Collection Palettes. It contains mainly neutral colors. It is a mix of shimmer and matte.


Below are swatches of the different pans.
The top row are shimmer shades. From right- silver, pearl white, and 3 different bronze shades.
On the bottom are all matte. Beige, dirty white, brown, grey and black.


I give this a thumbs up because:
It is affordable. Bought it for Php450.00 (10USD).
Can be a wise alternative for Urban decay Naked palette!
So light and compact can fit in any of my small purse great for traveling.
Has a wide and clear mirror.
I use this palette almost everyday because:
The shades are neutral and fun to play with for daily makeup looks.
You can use the matte for daytime wears and the shimmers for night outs.
They are highly pigmented.
Easy to apply and blend specially when your in a rush.

I don't like it because:
can't think of any reason not to like it.

Watch me use this palette in this video:

What about you? Do you have this kind of palette? Do you like it as well as I do? Let me know what you think. =)

D.I.Y Feather Lashes

yeah bah! just saved me some moneh! I just made my own fancy looking feather lashes.

I have always wanted a pair, yes even just a pair of fancy feather lashes but it is so hard to find them locally. You may purchase online but they may be priced from 300php and up a pair, plus you'll have to shoulder the shipping fee. So, I've thought, why not make my own twinkling feather lashes. So here is a first! Will be making more soon.

So now I can make avante garde-ish creative make up looks with these babies.

How did I do make this you may ask? Well, below is a photo of the materials I used. The how-to would probably wait when I'll find time to film a video.

Thanks for viewing!

1980's Inspired Photoshoot

So, our group has been quite active last year and got more funshoots. It was a 1980's Madonna/Cyndi Lauper Inspired Shoot. I would like to share this photo to you. Hair, makeup and wardrobe all done by me.

Hair: It was just a high side ponytail tied with a pink floral scarf.
Makeup: Heavy pink and purple winged eyeshadows. Heavy pink blush on the cheeks and orange lipstick.
Warbrobe: Cropped bright yellow cotton shirt, checkered bubble skirt, pink net stockings.
On my right hand is a laced fingerless glove I made. And just beaded necklaces, bangles and bracelets for the jewely. Also, white round earrings.

The setting was in Taoist Bell Church, Baguio City.

Kim Kardashian Christmas Card Make up Look Trial

So, the holidays is over and I tried to film my first video for this year which is Kim Kardashian's Christmas Card look. However, I cannot transfer the video from my camera to my computer for editing so I'll probably refilm when I have the time. I'll be blogging for the mean time. Also, reviews for products coming up!

I only see it about 20-30% close. I made a more subtle look so i will refilm and try to make it dramatic as hers.
