44 Piece Professional Makeup Palette

I sometimes offer makeup service for my friends and cousins. Last year I missed two clients because I declined to have their makeup done, why? Because of lack of makeup tools. So I decided to collect makeup palettes this year so whenever someone ask for my makeup service I am 100% ready and available.

I've been eyeing  these 3 online shops which sells makeup palettes, but since I am a "thrifty person" (hence the name of this blog) I compare the prices of their products and find out that the makeup palettes are all the same, except that the 2 online shops only change or personalized the palette to have their online shops name printed on the palette. And Glittergirl Shop offers the cheapest price so I did my first purchase of this 44 piece pro makeup palette to them.


Dirty little secret : I find out that this palette is Singapore authentic or what we all know a replica. The palette that I got from glittergirl shop has "MAC" label on it, but I know that it wasn't authentic. I wasn't actually inform that the product was MAC replica because I have seen the same palette from the 2 online shops which makes me think that it was just a non-brand makeup that they import and have their online shop name printed on the palettes. So yeah, the makeup palette that you will see below is a mac replica, it was actually just the same with makeup palette that was being sold by the other 2 online shops.

But nonetheless, I don't have regrets in buying this palette, because I really need this wide selection of colors i doing makeup look.

Here's how it looks like:

Upper Portion compose of lipsticks and concealers. It's detachable.
Lower portion of the palette compose of eyeshadows, blushes and contour/highlight.

The palette has 16 lipsticks - 6 cream concealers - 16 eyeshadows (matte and shimmery)  - 3 blushes - and 3 contouring/highlighting powders.
Youcan detache the first palette and put it at the back of the palette's lid.

Lipsticks 1-8
Lipsticks 9-16
Lipsticks are not matte, some are very pigmented and some are just  so-so lippies. I love using the red shades and the peachy shades perfect for "young-looking" makeup. The lipstick usually stays on for about 2-3 hours.

Cream Concealers
Cream Concealers - I am glad that it contains a lot of concealers. It is very important to have a wide selection of colors since your client doesn't have the same skin tones. 

Eyeshadows 1-8
Eyeshadows 9-16
Eyeshadows - Some were shimmery and some are matte. Dark colors are very pigmented. It has fall out but eyeshadow primer will surely solve this dilemma!

Blushes and Contouring powders
Blush - I love the blushes from this palette, they are pigmented. I only wish they add coral-ish shade!

Contour/Highlight powder - It isn't that pigmented but I think it's good enough since contour and highlight should be really just minimal. It's blendable and buildable.

You might not like the artificial scent of the palette but for it's price I still love this palette! I will make a saparated post for the swatches of this palette, so stay tuned!

Thanks Glitter girl shop for a super fast transaction and for the freebies!

The palette only cost P500.00 plus 50pesos for shipping fee in MM. Other shops sell this for 800+pesos.

MR. JEWELS REVIEW : I'M ENGAGED!

I haven't read any review about Mr.Jewels' store, so this post will serve as one, which will guarantee that the shop is legit and 100% trusted.

Le Bf, is planning to buy an engagement ring. The proposal was ain't a surprise anymore. I was actually thinking of getting an authentic diamond, pero since pratical na dapat ngayon we opted for this silver ring with high quality cubic zirconia, mawala man o masira hindi ka iiyak ng dugo. Hehehe.

So after searching the internet for so many days, I cannot find any review about Mr.Jewels but methinks that the store is legit and trusted because I have seen their sulit page (olx now) before they have a lot of positive feedback from their clients so le bf and I decided to make our first jewelry purchase at Mr.Jewels.

They offer meet-up and shipping. Since the schedule didn't permit us to meet the seller, bf decided to have it shipped. And after a day I received the ring in my office.

Here's how it looks like on their olx account:

CUBIC ZIRCONIA VINTAGE STERLING SILVER ENGAGEMENT RING



And here's how it looks like person:

I love the packaging and the color :)

 It's a vintage solitaire silver ring with Top grade Cubic Zirconia Diamonds.


The ring is very shiny in person. I have to turned off the flash so the shine on ring will not reflect in picture.


The diamond is colorless and looks very expensive in person.


 I finally know now the beauty of cubic zirconia. I fell inlove after wearing and seeing it in person for the first time and of course the thought that I am now engaged.



The ring is actually in size 6 so they have to resize it to 5 since I'm size 5. Resizing is FREE! Yey!



Taken with flash. Isn't it pretty?









Here is a short video of the shiny shimmering ring.

I think the feeling would still be the same even if he gave me a genuine diamond. For me, it doesn't matter if the ring is expensive or not, what really matter is that, we love each other. I am not against with those guys who can give expensive engagement ring, we can also afford one but we decided to go for affordable ring since we can use the money for more important things.


Thank you Mr. Jewels for this pretty ring! I love it very much.

Mr.Jewels' sells genuine engagement diamond rings and wedding rings and other jewelries, you can approach them through facebook , sms or their official website.
