Products I’m Trying Out: Krave Minerale, e.l.f., Chanel, and Mac (Mini Haul)

Written March 15, 2012

Here are the products I bought/received this early part of March.
I’ve been on the lookout for a good oil control product. I have oily/combination skin, and the oily part is what really bugs me!
I got this from Krave Minerale.

Krave Minerale Oil Eliminator & Skin Hydrator
Price: 285 Php 

Krave Minerale is a Philippine brand, but their products are made in the US. This is my first Krave Minerale product, but I got this for free! 
Krave Minerale Detox & White Masque free sample 
Thanks for the free sample! More on this after I try it out! :)
As for the Oil Eliminator & Skin Hydrator. I’ve used it once already! I don’t use it as a primer, I use it as a finishing powder. My T-zone tends to get oily after an hour, but with this product, it didn’t get oily right away. This is just my first impression! I’ll probably review this after a month! Watch out for that!
You can check out Krave Minerale’s online shop here!
The next product is something I’ve been wanting since I started watching YouTube videos.
e.l.f. Blending Eye Brush
Price: 129.75 Php 

 I always look for good makeup brushes in drugstores. Since I can find a blending brush from Marionnaud, I tried e.l.f., and here it is! A blending brush is really a must, especially when working with dark colors, or smokey eye looks.
The next two are both high-end lipsticks.
My first Mac lipstick!
Mac Amplified Lipstick in Craving
Price: 1,000 Php 

Mac Amplified Lipstick in Craving Swatch 

I wanted this color the moment Emily Eddington, from Beauty Broadcast on YouTube, showed it. It’s a pinkish/purplish, berry, color. I love berry colors! This is an amplified lipstick, which means it’s really pigmented, and what you see is what you get! I am in love with this!
If you like watching makeup videos on YouTube, you should totally check out Emily, by clicking here.
Last product is a Chanel lipstick.

Chanel Rouge Coco in Gabrielle
Price: 1,650 Php
Chanel Rouge Coco in Gabrielle Swatch 

This color is a true red with a little bit of gold glitters. I haven’t worn this yet. I have to pluck up the courage to do so. Maybe I’ll use this when I go out at night, which I rarely do. Hmmm.. Maybe when Jerome gets home! Haha!
Lookout for reviews of the Krave Minerale products!
I wasn’t paid to try out these products. I got most of them for free because I got them as gifts from loved ones! :P You know I can’t afford high-end products right now!  ;)
I’m planning to start a new blog on a new site for my beauty blogs. I’d be transferring my beauty related entries there, if ever. Would you still love me if I did that? Would you support me? :? I’d still write here for non-beauty entries, though. That is if I finally decide on doing that. Either way, click the follow button up above if you’re a WordPress user, or subscribe to my blog via mail by clicking the button on my sidebar to the right.
Hope you enjoyed this!

    1. Hi! It's my first blending brush, so I can't really compare it to anything yet! So far, so good! Thanks for viewing!
