First Look | Inglot Freedom System Palette

DSC_0022

Inglot is one of the most talked about makeup line in the YouTube community! I’ve seen a lot of makeup gurus use it and even rave about it on several favorites videos and such! I’ve heard and read that these are very good alternatives for MAC eyeshadows as the color pay-off is really great.

A few days back, The Style Quarter sent me a package and I knew it was the “Freedom System Palette” since the owner, Ritchelle, gave me the freedom to choose the shades I wanted in my very own Inglot Palette! :)

I like using customizable palettes since you are able to bring the products you need in just one container! What’s even more likeable is when your customizable palette is as sturdy as Inglot’s!

The Freedom System Palette contains 2 slots for eyeshadows, one for blush, and one for the pressed powder. It has a glass-like covering with 4 magnets as locks. These magnets a very strong so you don’t need to worry about your palette’s covering flying open!

These are all the shades that I chose for my very own Freedom System Palette:

Eyeshadows: #107R & #114R

Blush: #51

Pressed Powder: #21 (I chose this shade because I wanted to use it for contouring!)

I have tried using the products and they are all ahhhhh-mazing. I will be uploading the makeup tutorial using this palette very soon.

Meanwhile, enjoy this quick video of myself showing the Freedom System Palette:

OCTOBER SaladBox | What I Think About It

I was looking through my blog posts and realized I haven’t made a formal blog entry about last month’s SaladBox! *I am guilty of giving more attention to my YouTube channel than my blog!* Nevertheless, here’s what I think about last month’s box.

Haven’t heard of Saladbox? Read my intro blog post about it here.

DSC_0264

I was quite sure the box contained another perfume since the scent escaped as I opened the package! Here’s how it looked like when I unboxed it. No spillage. Clean and fuss-free.

DSC_0265


Sakura Hand Foam Sanitizer (PHP 90.00)—they sent 2! I have never come across with this kind of hand sanitizer before!!! Interesting.

DSC_0266

Virginia Olsen E/S (Lobo and Solar Flare)—mineral eyeshadows. Pigmented!! Haven’t tried them yet!

DSC_0273

BC Fragrance Fig Tea Room Frangrance—this smells amaaaaazing!!! I would TOTALLY get a full size of this room fragrance!

DSC_0275

Hot Shop Pour Femme Pink Touch—OMG another fragrance from HotShop which I LOOOOOOVE!!!! The scent is so me!

DSC_0278

Black Beauty Gold Shampoo—I haven’t tried this yet, but I’ll let you know if I like it!

Here’s the video of myself unboxing the October box!

Pinkie Swear BB Cream Foundation Review/Demo

Hi everyone!

I officially ran out of my favorite BB Cream Foundation :( I can’t squeeze out anything anymore—which means the last resort is cutting the plastic container open and using up whatever’s left!

I am talking about none other than the Pinkie Swear BB Cream Foundation!

DSC_0144DSC_0147DSC_0149

If you’ve been watching my tutorials/reading my tweets, you probably have heard me rave about this product a million times already.

Just a head’s up, though. PINKIE SWEAR is no longer available in SM Department Stores. I believe there has been an issue regarding the company name of some sort. It’s really peculiar, too, since a few weeks ago I received an email from Pinkie Swear USA asking if I can give them details about retailers who are carrying their brand in the Philippines. Could it be that Pinkie Swear have been been operating in the Philippines illegally? Hmmm… I still am hoping they’d be back. Because I need more containers of my favorite BB Cream Foundation!

…and this review would be useless if they won’t come back!!!

Pinkie Swear BB Cream Foundation PHP299.00 *there are only 2 shades available (one for people with yellow undertone, and one for people with pink undertone)

PROS

  1. One thing I really liked about this BB Cream Foundation is how well it blended with my skin color! It wasn’t too dark nor too light!
  2. It gave me awesome coverage; I need not to use concealer anymore prior to/after using this product.
  3. Given my dry skin type, my skin did not show oiliness/oil up throughout the day (maximum of 8 hours) I believe I get just the right amount of dewiness on the T-zone. I set the BB Cream Foundation using my 4U2 Lovelight BB Powder and my face should be fine all day long.
  4. No pungent smell at all
  5. Comes in a squeeze out tube
  6. Affordable at 299.00

CONS

  1. Color selection is limited (yellow and pink undertone)
  2. No longer available in department stores!!! (I hope they come back!)
  3. Might tend to make the skin of people with oily skin type even more oilier throughout the day if not used together with a good setting powder

OVERALL

I give this product a 9/10. I am absolutely in love with it. PINKIE SWEAR, if you’re reading this, please come back to momma. Love, Say

Here’s a short review/demo vid for you guys:

Not sponsored. Product bought with my own money.
