Glam of the month (Makeup Geek x Manny Mua)

Happy New year everyone!I'm so happy to be sharing all my thoughts about the Legendary palette of Manny Mua. I created 2 looks with Manny Mua's Palette with Makeup Geek  it is one of the most beautiful palette that Make up geek has released. I was really lucky to score this at  "Makeup Depot Ph". It is an online shop in the Philippines where I mostly by my make up.
 Manny Mua was a voice to the gay people that make up is not just for girls,he inspired millions of people to be confident and be beautiful in their own skin, Unfortunately this palette is no longer available on their site because this collaboration  is limited edition. Manny worked hard for this palette and I think he did an amazing job with it.
 You can never go wrong with make up geek shadows they're very blendable, very affordable and it is long lasting.It may not be classified as one of the high end brands in the market but it slays and proves to everyone that it doesn't have to be high end to achieve a beautiful quality. My ultimate favorite colors from the palette are (Insomnia,Artemis & Cosmopolitan) . This palette maybe be on the bold side of make up but in my opinion I can see myself strutting down anywhere. Just remember to blend and corporate the colors you like.

Dreamy Unicorn (Maybelline Hacks)


I'm constantly loving everything about maybelline, I think out of all the drugstore products in the market maybelline has been slaying everyone with their lipstick. I guess you all know what I'm talking about. I'm talking about their color sensational lipstick collection! It's 300- 350php I got one in the shade "daringly nude" it's pigmented, gives you the perfect soft matte finish that lasts for hours. If I'm not mistaken this shade was from their latest brown collection that was released in the Philippines earlier in 2016! Their formula is undeniably great I have nothing bad to say about the product it's 100% worth it.
Moving forward to my next maybelline product. I'm really excited to share this cause I was really shooked when I tried it. I got their colorshow eyeliner which I can obviously compare with the Charlie xcx collab from makeup forever. They have variety of colors to choose from (aqua blue, purple,Ocean blue and many more!) It is so creamy and so easy to blend unlike the colourpop one's I don't know if it's me or what but I find it so hard to get a pigment out of those creme gel liners. The product costs around 200php so if you're looking for an affordable long lasting eyeliner just check the collection of colorshow eyeliner available at your nearest watsons and Sm store beauty section.

Blind them with the light (Sleek Makeup Solstice Palette)

I was in a hunt for an affordable makeup highlighter and it seems like I need to change my old one (marylou manizer from Balm Cosmetics.Good thing I was in Manila for 3 days and found the most talked about highlighter for the month of September. It's called the solstice palette from Sleekmakeup. The rave started when Jaclyn Hill talked about it, people got shooked and crazy of how amazing the palette was. We all know that Jaclyn is one of the most influential make up gurus in the beauty Industry, with that said she's also known to be one of the collaborators and makers of the Champagne pop Highlighter from Becca Cosmetics. 
Everyone trusted her expertise and people were impressed so the palette was a huge hit and a success. The solstice palatte has 4 shades which consists of 1 cream (ecliptic) and 3 powder highlighters (equinoz, hemisphere and subsolar). This palette is extremely pigmented and it is best used with a fan brush. I also used this palette to create my unicorn inspired look that will be posted this December 2016 on instagram @sefffancisco so stay tuned! . This palette was unbelievably blinding, it is 100% affordable I got it around 800 plus pesos. If you are too far from Sm malls try to shop and get the palette from Zaloraph. Here are the swatches I made for you guys.

Nubian palette from Juvias Place



Let me start by asking you this question are you into that warm neutral glam look? If you are,this blog post is for you. Will be talking about the Juvias place Nubian palette it was released in the middle of October and I've tested the palette already it is definitely worth a try it has 12 shades consisting of copper, brown and gold colors. I'm literally obsessed with this palette ever since nikkie tutorials talked about it, regardless if she talked about it or not the product is amazing. The palette speaks for itself. it is also inspired with the Egyptian empire which literally amazes me cause you can get so much inspiration from their cover. It's perfect for a night out with friends, if you want to go clubbing and have a very sweet romantic dinner with your lover.This can be your perfect go to palette!
This palette is best compared with 35o from morphe brushes and the Kyshadow Bronze palette from Kylie Cosmetics. The formula is something that other product should have when creating a palette it's pigmented and it is easy to blend. I got mine from an online shop called @makeupdepotph (instagram) I got it around 2000php. I have been wearing this palette all month long(October), also did a Halloween look on this palette,if you want to check it out follow me on Instagram @sefffrancisco.

Why give "Kylie Gloss" a 2nd chance!


One of the most controversialbrands in the make up Industry is kylie cosmetics now I decided to get one and give it a try.The issue started last year when she released her LIKE, LITERALLY & SO CUTE glosses with an unsatisfying wand that really shook all their consumers. I don't want to tell you guys the detailed story about how it all went down but i'm going to leave a link down below so you can actually follow through.just click here RANT&ISSUE 
As I became more appreciative of make up I wasn't really into the world of glosses I feel like it's sticky,wet and unappealing to the eyes. Thanks to the CEO of Artist Couture, he taught/inspired me how important it is to hydrate not just your skin but also your lips. I was supposed to get the "LIKE" gloss from Kyle Cosmetics cause it has that deep brown shade which I feel like I can really pull off but unfortunately they were out of stock so I just had to get the "Literally" one shade lighter to like. I personally have mixed reviews about their glosses first of all the scent of the lipstick is too strong It smells like a mixture of some weird fruit and vanilla. I can actually compare it with the baby lips of maybelline.The packaging is very unique I like it, very classy & very Jenner! I have nothing bad to say with the packaging! 100%

Next we have the wand, their wands are the reason why they got themselves into trouble. Which I can honestly agree because it looked terrible when they first launched their glosses. I got to say I'm so impressed with the improvement, the bristles are perfectly shaped and the wand is much more easier to use. Lastly let's talk about the pigmentation.Im not even kidding it is so pigmented you only need to apply it once,but for me I like it extra which leaves me to 2 applications. it is long lasting so you don't have to retouch all the time. I never thought I'd like this color so much(LITERALLY) I think it's going to be in my August favorites!
