My Daily Makeup Routine Part 2: Reviews

Hi everyone!

As promised, here my honest opinions on the products that I used in order to complete my daily look! I’ve also included some of the products that I didn’t use (in the look from my last blog post) but also use on a regular basis.

 

If you haven’t read last week’s post yet, click here for part one of my daily make up routine!

The Face Shop Single Matte Shadow (PK01 / Vintage Rose) ratingsystem_4 + perfect for everyday usage, stays on for the whole day, pigmentation is good
Tony Moly Eyetone Single Shadow – Shimmer Type (S03 / Dressy Beige) ratingsystem_35 + pigmentation and shimmer are good

Eyeliner

Product Name Rating + & – Points

Other products (Blush, Highlighter, Contour)

Product Name Rating + & – Points
The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Cushion Blusher (05 / Vivid Peach) ratingsystem_35 + color looks natural on fair skin, pigmentation is good

may or may not match some skin tones

Missha The Style Defining Blusher (BE01 / Satin Beige) ratingsystem_4 + multi-functional / multi-use, subtle shimmer (for everyday use), good for those who aren’t too familiar with highlighting

not as bright as other highlighters in the market

Etude House Face Color Corset (5호 / Tight Shading Corset) ratingsystem_3 + pigmented, low priced contour / shading for amateurs

some colors come out very orange in tone, needs a lot of spreading / brushing to blend out

 

Of all those that I’ve listed above, my top 3 must-have / recommended products are as follows:

  1. Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder Pact (one of my best friends Yuki also uses this product for her daily looks!)
  2. Skin Food Choco Brown Powder Cake (2호 / Grey Brown)
  3. Benefit Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara

However, I’d like to make a few special mentions–these products may not be in the top 3, but these two products are ones that I will definitely repurchase because of their bang for your buck (a.k.a. value for money).

  1. Elizavecca Skin Liar Primer (PHP280 at Althea.kr)
  2. Menow Pro Dynamic Liquid Liner (PHP150+)

Those are my reviews for the products I use on a daily basis! Hopefully after reading this, you’d be encouraged to buy (and try) out some of these products as well! 🙂
