Hello everyone! I’m back with another haul! A few weeks ago, my friend and I went to SM Makati for the sole purpose of buying makeup from BLK cosmetics.
If you don’t know what blkcosmetics is, it is a makeup line by Filipina-Australian actress Anne Curtis. She just recently launched it this year and is available in chosen Watsons and SM Beauty Stores in the Philippines.
Since I’m a big fan of Anne Curtis, and I’m slowly starting to delve into makeup, I cannot just say no to the chance of getting my hands on these beauties. When I realized that I had vacant time in Manila, I made sure that my friend and I would go somewhere that sells BLK cosmetics. Hence, SM Makati.
I first checked the prices in their official website, http://www.blkcosmetics.com.ph/ before deciding what to buy. I was planning on getting eye makeup because I just recently got my very first pair of glasses and I’m afraid that my eyes would look completely different with it. However, I have heard that the lip products are good too, so I decided that if I like something, I would get it. After all, I window-shopped in their website and put one of each product that they offer in the bag (just one shade each makeup) and it only reached around 2,500PHP. Not bad for a whole set of makeup.
For the lipstick, I chose the Long-lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick in shade Sophisticated, because just like the name itself, it is simple yet it adds color to the lips, it’s not too tacky nor bland for a nude shade. It’s perfect for every day use.
I was actually thinking of buying lipstick from their other lines but then the testers look like they have melted off–I’m not sure if it is because a lot of people try it, or that’s how the product is, but it turned me off. Tip: make sure your testers are in good quality because the tester says a lot about the product.
But that didn’t completely turn me off. Actually, I’m not really sure which shade to buy too and I’m not really a lipstick person, so I decided to buy just one lip product as of the moment. I might come back soon, who knows?
Also, I love how this makeup line decided to produce a pen liquid liner. They’re so easy to use, just like the brand’s tagline–uncomplicated. And I can’t remember how much this Long Lasting Liquid Liner really costs (please check the website I gave earlier), but I think it’s less than 500PHP–cheaper compared to the other pen eyeliners I have encountered in my whole existence. Maybe I’m looking at the wrong places? I don’t know.
To be honest, I don’t know how to do my brows. But I still bought BLK cosmetics’ Brow Sculpting Pencil Duo in high hopes that I’ll learn how to do my brows with the aid of this product. You can see from the photo that it only costs 249PHP. It’s inexpensive, but it looks really classy and IG-friendly.
Last but not the least from my BLK cosmetics haul is this Contour, Blush, & Highlight Palette in Flushed. I picked this one because I thought this will compliment my skin more compared to the Sun-Kissed variant. It’s so funny because when I was already willing to try this on, I realized that I DON’T OWN ANY MAKEUP BRUSH. Hahahahaha. Soooo, yeah. I will still have to look for makeup brushes before I can start using this. It should be included in my wishlist.
I decided not to buy a foundation yet because I didn’t feel like it–I think I’ll be putting too much makeup on my face if I use a foundation. Although, I do use a BB cream on a regular basis. If and when I decide that I need a foundation, BLK cosmetics will of course be in the line of brands I will consider. But as of the moment, I contented with my current makeup haul with BLK cosmetics and I hope I can come back to SM Makati or they’ll make it available here in Davao so I can buy more lipstick from them. Seriously, I am in LOOOOOOOOOVEEEEE with the packaging.
That’s all for now, and I hope you enjoyed reading this post!
