Kuripot Kikay Buys

I think every girl is kikay and being kikay could be costly especially good makeup. I've always wanted to buy the Mac Blot Powder Pressed because I've heard great reviews about how it is perfect for oily skin. But upon seeing the price (around P1,000+) I think I would stick to my inexpensive pressed powder. Thanks to my other kikay friend (who is actually practicing becoming a makeup artist), she suggested another product to control the excessive oil in the T-zone. Ellana Mineral Cosmetics' Pumpkin Pie Latte Light Peach Oil Absorbing Loose Mineral Finishing Powder. I was at first hesitant on trying this since I had quite sensitive skin but my friend had the same problem but it worked on her. I bought mine at SM Makati, alongside the pasalubong items. You might have problems locating it since it's not sold in the department store area. They only had a small booth and it was beside other food items. (It's outside the supermarket.) The powder had 2 available sizes (1g - P100 and 6g P300) and I bought the bigger one since the small one was not available. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and I like it. It is usually applied above the foundation but I use it as a normal pressed powder. I understand that since it's a finishing powder, it only has light coverage.
Pros: I liked how you can seal in the powder by using the knob to cover the holes to avoid the powder from spilling in your bag. It also has Allantoin and Vitamin E and is Paraben-free. However, I didn't like the scratches on the cover. The other con is it didn't control my oil problems and I still had to use blotting paper from time to time. It's okay for everyday use like a normal pressed powder but if you want more coverage, apply it after your foundation. To brighten up my look, I also bought a new lipstick. Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme in Coral Pink. Yes the tag "moisture extreme" caught my attention since most lipsticks tend to make the lips dry. I usually wear lip balm but I thought of changing my look for special occasions. I only needed one swipe just to even out the color and it really glides smoothly. To add more moisture, I usually add on my favorite lip balm. =) Compared to the other popular lipsticks like Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butter (P 500+), this one is less expensive (P 299). As for the cons, it only lasts for a few hours and the other shade (Pink Petal) was rumored to have lead (yikes!). Hopefully this one is safe coz I really love the color. Can't wait for my next kuripot kikay buy =)
