Nichido Contour Palette - Review

I've delayed this review thinking it's better to write reviews when you've used it for a while.  But little did I realize that I've put it off so long that I already hit pan with this.


Packaging 
Black plastic packaging with a clear window in the cover so you can see the colors inside, this is one feature I like with the packaging.
This has 3 pans: highlight, shape and contour
The middle shade you can use as a bronzer for medium skin tones but since I'm fair, I use it in my contour already.
Smell 
none
Swatch
As you can see from the swatch, the highlight didn't show in my light complexion.  
Application 
This is a powder contour palette, it's very powdery and can be a little messy when you swirl your brush in the pan.

This is a great contour palette if you're still on the beginner stage (like me).  It's versatile and very blendable, I don't get a very sharp streak or line when I apply this which is the  effect I like since it looks more natural for me.


Duration of use> 2 months
PricePhp 348
Pros 
Blendable
Easy to use, great for beginners
Affordable
Cons 
 A little messy

Moonshot Cream Paint Lightfit - First Impressions

I saw in youtube that this is one of Joankeem's favorite brand for lip products and I bought this when I went to HongKong for my UAA eposter presentation.

I got the shade: Love Drunk


Packaging 
The body is silver matte rectangular with twistable cap. There's a small rectangle at the bottom which shows the shade or color.  I love this feature of packaging.  There's also a name of the shade at the bottom of the body.  This contains 9mL / 0.3 fl oz of product.

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Mascara - First Impressions

Been late with my posts lately, busy with the hospital and some unforseen events.  Anyways, at least I was able to squeeze this in.

I got this from a swap. I swapped this with an essence that I'm no longer using.  I guess swapping is a great way to try new products without breaking your wallet.

The full name of the product by the way: Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara
Packaging 
This is not the full size, but a part of a set of makeup I think.  Anyways, this has a plastic khaki tube with gold chrome cap.

The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer - Review

I've always mentioned this in my previous post and I realised I hadn't made a review of this yet.  This is currently my holy grail concealer.  I'm currently using my 2nd tube and I've been using this for more than a year already.


Packaging 
This comes in a plastic small tube with black twistable cover.  

Doe foot applicator is attached to the cover of the tube.
Smell 
None
Coverage This has a thick liquid consistency, with light to medium coverage.  In the picture below, is a swatch of my Heroinemake Kissme Liquid Eyeliner in Black and here's how one layer and 2 layers can cover the eyeliner.
Application 
Although it's medium coverage, it's buildable which I think gives you more control since there are times you don't want full coverage to look more natural.

I like this when I apply this in my under eye since it's not too obvious that I applied concealer.   
I also use this to conceal my pimple.  It's easy to blend also.
This is pretty long lasting, can last for around less than 12 hours.
I like also that this is lightweight.
What I don't like about this product though is that as you're using it longer, the product tends to gent into the twistable portion of the tube so it can get a little messy and may create a mess with your other makeups.  So you have to wipe it off before you put it back into your cosmetic bag/kit.

Duration of use> 1 year
PriceP288 from Meisatsuki
Pros 
lightweight
buildable
blends easily
affordable
Cons 
Gets messy around the tube
