All manner of amazing things land on my doorstep every week. Unfortunately, I am not able to review each and every single one of them mainly because I'm busy with, y'know, work. Sometimes I receive products in event loot bags, so I don't feel the urgency to review them anymore since the event is the main story. Sometimes I flat out don't like them after only a couple of uses.
There are lots of reasons why some things don't make it on Project Vanity, but that doesn't mean they are not worth the exposure. Sooo a brilliant idea hit me - why not put up one-liner reviews? It should be fun and challenging! I mean, it challenges me to be succinct and straight to the point, and it allows you to quickly preview products that may be worth adding to your arsenal.
I will probably review some of these products in full - with swatches and what not - just let know which ones you're most intrigued about! Here goes!
Alicia Silvestone for Juice Beauty Simply Flawless Pressed Powder. Amazing, fine powder for finishing makeup or retouching but is quite fragile and expensive for that purpose only.
Available in all Beauty Bar branches.
Bare Minerals Original Mineral Foundation. This loose foundation has medium coverage and gives the skin a gorgeous glow - best for the "no makeup makeup" look!
Available in Stuff in Style, an online store.
Benefit Boi-ing Concealer. I use this regularly and have hit pan; I plan to repurchase!
Available in Benefit boutiques and counters in Rustan's and Greenbelt.
L'Oreal Lucent Magique Concealer Pen. It works well enough, but I wish that it stays longer and has less of a chalky finish.
Available in L'Oreal counters nationwide.
Essence Eyebrow Styling Set. Great for beginners, this eyebrow set is inexpensive, the two shades look good, and comes with brow stencils and a brush.
Essence is available in major Watsons and SM Beauty Stores.
Laura Mercier Colour-To-Go Portable Palette. This limited edition holiday kit is pretty much everything you need to color your face beautifully; it may not be available anymore, but keep a sharp eye out for this year's super sulit holiday collection!
Laura Mercier is available in Rustan's.
Smashbox Halo Longwear Blush. This is the MOST PIGMENTED blush I have ever tried in my whole beauty blogging life.
Smashbox is available in Beauty Bar.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick. Interesting formula and pretty shade, but it has to be topped with lip balm due to its drying texture.
Estee Lauder is available in Rustans.
NARS Pierre Hardy Nail Polish Set in Sharplines. Excellent formula, gorgeous colors, and has the staying power to beat!
NARS is available in Rustans.
Laneige Water Sleeping Pack. This is an awesome watery evening moisturizer that'll make your face feel fresh and super smooth in the morning.
Laneige can be found in SM Aura, TriNoma, Mall of Asia, Robinsons Manila, Robinsons Galleria, and Robinsons Magnolia
All Belle False Eyelashes. These lashes are comfy (they feel light on the eyes) and sterilized by gamma rays.
All Belle Lashes are available in Beauty and Minerals, an online store.
Mustela Agua de Colonia. This is a fresh and light cologne that smells like a gurgling river on a bright morning.
Mustela is available in the following locations.
Aaaand that's it. Hope you enjoyed the first installment of One-Liner Reviews! ^_^ Don't forget to tell me what you'd like to read full reviews of!
