Makeup Haul: Jcat

Jcat cosmetics just recently launched in the Philippines, and I was able to get a few things from them in their bazaar last December. They come all the way from The US! Jcat is fairly priced, and they are more known for bolder and crazier makeup fronted by matte lipsticks that come in gorgeous browns, reds, to blues!

BRUSH

I’ve been wanting a pencil-type of brush for the longest time. The label says it’s a crease brush, but I personally use the tapered end of this brush to apply eyeshadow on my lower lash line. It has synthetic bristles but it’s gentle enough to blend my eyeshadow on my lash line.

Retails for P249.00

EYE PENCIL

This is similar to NYX’ Jumbo Eye Pencil. The formula is super creamy so it’s perfect on the eyelids with or without eyeshadow on top. Currently obsessing over these red/cranberry shades!

Retails for P279.00

THE LIPPIES

(1) Soft Matte Lip Cooler in Frozen Choco

Soft Matte Lip Cooler in Frozen Choco

Their Soft Matte Lip Cooler in Frozen Choco is a bright peachy lip creme that resembles NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme’s formula. It really does have a ‘cooling’ effect on the lip once applied. It dries matte with a bit of satin sheen.

Retails for P369.00

(2) Lipfinity Matte Kissproof in LMK 104

Lipfinity in LMK 104

The Lipfinity liquid lipstick dried completely matte and they are ‘kiss-proof’. You just have to be careful when applying it as it can appear patchy if you don’t apply it evenly on your lips (as do most other liquid lipsticks).
Love the 90s vibe that this lip color gives though!

THE HIGHLIGHTERS

SO GORGEOUS

OKAY WHERE DO I BEGIN?

These highlighters got me SO EXCITED! The products look so pretty in the packaging alone that you just want to stare at them all day (lol).

(1) You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter in PINK GODDESS

I mean, look at that texture!

This is a rosy pink-toned highlighter (though it looks somewhat orange-y in the photo) that is SUPER PIGMENTED (be careful) so you don’t need too much on your brush.

Here’s a quick before and after shot. It gives such a beautiful glow to your cheekbones!

Retails for P599.00

(2) You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter in TWILIGHT

Now this highlighter is more on the bronze-y side. This will look even better if your skin is a bit more tan!

This highlighter will give you a more sun-kissed look.

Moisture Touch Lipsticks Review (Cool-toned edition!)

Happy New Year! Hope you all had an amazing holiday break.

What better way to start the year than with another lipstick swatch post (lol I just love lipsticks)?

In the 3-day workshop we had in Seoul with The Face Shop, a professional image consultant helped us find our personal color. Mine happened to be cool-toned (not warm, to my dismay lol), so I brought home with me 6 cool-toned lipsticks to start wearing.

The Face Shop Moisture Touch Lipsticks

The formula of The Face Shop’s Moisture Touch Lipsticks, are very creamy and opaque. If you want a lighter coverage on the lips, you can slightly dab the lipstick on your lips and blend with your fingers after. For a more opaque finish, you can apply the lipstick straight to your lips even with just one swipe.

These lipsticks are so moisturizing that I don’t feel the need to apply lip balm before it! It’s perfect for those who have dry lips.

Here I’ve swatched the lipsticks on my lips. Mouse over the images to see the specific names of the lipsticks.

Which one do you think looks best on me? I personally love Purple Fantasy! Let me know what you think. πŸ˜‰
