░ Makeup Haul: Nichido, Ever Bilena, Maybelline ░

The other day, I woke up from a nap and had the urge to buy makeup. Well, it's not exactly just  for the sake of retail therapy, but I also needed some stuff to put into my collection for upcoming makeup gigs. My boyfriend as usual, was such a sweetheart and accompanied me to the mall and waited patiently while I sorted out the things I wanted to buy. No high-end products, because some of these are mainly for gig-use. I bought majority of the products from Nichido and because I exceeded 500PhP, the saleslady slashed off 50PhP from my total purchase (including other brands). Makes a big difference. 
Let's sort through these, shall we? ♥
NICHIDO CHEEK MOUSSE in "PLUM BRULEE" 


Why I like this product:
  • The rounded ends of the container is really cute. It can fit even in the smallest purse.
  • The color "Plum Brulee" is the best I've seen among all the colors. Not too pink nor too brown; just right for my skin tone.
  • The price was marked down to P84.00. Original price was P168.00. It was on a 50% sale when I bought it. 
  • The product did not cause any irritations or breakouts on my skin.
  • This is the very first product in mousse form that I've tried, and I am not disappointed in it.
NICHIDO EYEBROW LINER DUO KIT



Why I like this product:
  • I've been using the perfect dark brown color from my Dollface 88 Earth Color Palette for a long time now, and I think this would be more convenient to use since it's really compact.
  • Contains a mini tweezer and an eyeliner/eyebrow brush inside! 
  • Costs P238.00, quite affordable.
  • A mirror is included in the kit
  • Fits my carry-around makeup purse just fine.
What I dislike about this product:
  • I get fall outs from the powder while redefining my brows, and I never get this with the dark brown color from my Dollface 88 Earth Color Palette. This has something to do with the consistency of the powder, I believe.
EVER BILENA CHEEK BLUSH in "EARTH" ( w/UVA/UVB PROTECTION)





Why I like this product:
  • This particular color caught my eye from a distance and I did not hesitate to buy it at all. The color is just perfect for contouring! Even if it is a blush.
  • Costs P150, affordable and I believe this will last me at least 4-5 months, or maybe longer.
  • Comes with a small blusher brush inside and a small mirror as well.
What I dislike about this product:
  • Contains a bit of shimmer, which may not help when you use it for contouring. But it can do.
NICHIDO LIP PENCIL LP03 "BLAZE"



What I like about this product:
  • I bought this mainly because I needed a red lip liner for an upcoming tutorial and it would be a good addition to my collection. I have the LP04 Rosette and it's not the best match with red lipstick so I got this.
  • Paid P100.00 for this.
MAYBELLINE EYE AND LIP MAKEUP REMOVER

What I like about this product:
  • The saleslady from Nichido was also the one who assisted me in the Maybelline counter since the one in charge was no where in sight. She asked me to try Nichido's Makeup Remover but I told her I've been using Maybelline ever since so I'd still go for it. I've tried and tested this makeup remover and I am and will always be a happy and loyal consumer of it.
  • Cost P199.00 for 70ml/2.363Fl OZ bottle
  • I was running low on this so I had to buy another bottle. This removes waterproof mascara easily!
  • Safe for the eyes. I get the product in my eye all the time. (Quick tip: Your contacts will get blurry so take them out beforehand.)
  • Causes no irritations in my case.
  • Easy to use. I just use a cotton swab to remove makeup on my waterline or the lash line, cotton balls for the lids and the lips. You may also use cotton pads (available everywhere, I recommend The Body Shop's cotton pads)
NICHIDO LASH PAD


Why I like this product:
  • It's black. (So you can not really see how dirty it is compared to the white one)
  • It doesn't tug on the lashes too harshly
  • I bought these mainly to change the old ones I currently have in my lash curlers. You must change them at least once every 2-3 months. (Tip: I clean them with alcohol. I just soak 'em and try to take out all the dirty stuff caught in between. You may get eye infection especially when you share lash curlers with other people, so be sure to clean them every now and then)
  • Costs P75.00, you get three lash pads in one box
NICHIDO BEAUTY CAKES
"ROSE BEIGE"
"CLASSIC MINT"







Why I like this product:
  • I bought this for makeup-gig purposes.
  • Gives a matte finish
  • Comes in a variety of shades, I opted to buy these two colors and I'll be buying the rest of the shades soon
  • Costs only P80.00 per cake
NICHIDO LATEX SPONGE

Why I like this product:
  • I bought this mainly for the application of the beauty cakes (on a wet sponge)
What I dislike about this product:
  • Feels a bit rough on the skin!
*I'll go try the sponge from Revlon which costs P45.00 and I'll let you know the differences as soon as possible.

I hope this haul + short reviews were helpful to you in any way!
I'll be making more reviews in the next days. Actually, I'll be filming some tomorrow. I'm taking a breather from tutorials, but I'll be filming again the day after tomorrow. I received a Wednesday Addams request, so you probably know what to expect already. :)

  1. nice haul say! i also have a recent haul post...:) you might want to check my blog out. by the way, what's the beauty cake for? i'm intrigued by the other color, is it bluish green? (if my eyes serve me right, LOL). and do you have Nichido's liquid foundation? i've been swatching it several times and still being amazed, but never really got to buy it because i can't find a review about it.

  2. Hello Joice, I will check your haul in a bit. The beauty cakes are sort of the old fashion foundation. You apply it with a moist sponge and it will give an overall matte finish. Oh you're referring to the classic mint? Its color is minty green. :) It neutralizes redness, blemishes, broken capillaries on the face, I believe. I'll try to get hold of that liquid foundation and I'll tell you when I can post a review about it. Nichido's pretty much a reliable brand to me!

  3. Ohhh.... The green cake is sort of like a make up base, Intriguing... By the way, I got the EB blush "Shy". Its the dupe of Mac's Dollymix. You might wanna try that. Love the Haul girl... Keep it up!!! :)

  9. @fallen_angel First of all, I read your comment in MyLucidIntervals' blog entry, and I thank you for suggesting me! I'm really thankful. :) I'll make a review on the beauty cakes asap. I heard that Kokuryu's beauty cakes are also good. I didn't like the packaging, though so I went for Nichido's. I agree when you say most of the essentials are found in Nichido. Thank you for reading my blog!!! :)

  18. hey! pan cakes are supposed to be applied with a sea sponge. Tried it myself, there's a huge difference... you can buy a small one in the department store in the accessories for like 40 bucks or less...

  19. Does the beauty cake work with oily skin and is it long lasting? for how many hours? i'm just making sure before i go and buy make up :D sorry for the questions.

  20. Thanks Anonymous!

    Hi Kish! I don't recommend them at all. You should try using Maybelline's Aqua Gel Foundation instead. It's gel based so it won't oil up on your face. :) <3
