DIY Brush Cleaner Trio


I used to be not so keen with DIYs because I'm such a lazy person. But after knowing the real value of money, I'm all about DIYs and saving. The more I save, the better. However, I still choose which products are worth the sweat and which ones are worth the buck. In this instance, these projects are worth the effort - it's very minimal though, and you won't even break a sweat.

By the way, I don't have "artsy hands" so how my projects ended up are rather not the eye-candy type so I'd rather not show them. I'll be posting links instead in case you wanted to make one for yourself. Oh, and by the way, expect my long ramblings.

Le Correcteur -- UD, Smashbox, Algenist, Amazing Cosmetics, YSL, Sephora Collection


I browse beauty products from time to time. I find great joy in finding new great treasures to be added on my collection. As I was browsing, I noticed that there's a lot of new color correctors in the market. And I find it funny - in a satirical way - that the universe seems to know that I badly need one. I'm suffering from breakouts recently and I'm finding it harder and harder to conceal them with my good 'ol BB Cream.

Anyway, here's the list of the shiny new color corrector concealers in the market:

  1. Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid ($28) is a collection of high-tech, color correcting formulas that blur the look of imperfections. Comes in 5 colors - Mint (reduces redness), Yellow (correct dullness), Peach (masks circles/spots), Lavander (balances sallowness) and Pink (brightens dark areas).
  2. Smashbox Color Correcting Stick ($23) is a collection of buildable, creamy skintone-evening sticks to transform the complexion. it comes in 4 colors: Green (reduces redness), Lavander (brightens sallowness/yellowness), and Peach (for light skin) and Orange (for deeper skin) are for illuminating skin to conceal dark circles and hyperpigmentation. 
  3. Algenist Reveal Concentrated Color Correcting Drops ($38) is a weightless serum color corrector featuring microalgae and pigments to treat uneven skin.
  4. Amazing Cosmetics AMAZINGCONCEALER Corrector ($29) is a dual-sided color corrector that eliminates the appearance of dark circles, spots, discoloration and uneven skintone.

  5. Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ECLAT Neutralizers ($38) is a highlighter that targets and neutralizes color imperfections. It comes in three shades: Green, corrects blemishes, conceals redness for an even skintone; Bisque, corrects dark crcles and dark spots, illuminate; and, Violet, corrects yellow dull skin for a healthy glow.

elf Brush Shampoo & elf Daily Brush Cleaner


This is a long overdue post but since I still got the draft of my review and the photos to make a *cough* decent *cough* blog post, then why the hell not?

I'm a fan of elf cosmetics because of the really affordable price. It's my go-to brand in my yesteryear when I was still experimenting on makeup. Though I gotta admit, their products are either a hit or a miss. But with the price, you can hardly think that you've been ripped off.
