One of my YouTube friends requested for a one-brand makeup video (shoutout to Ajhay Urbi! Subscribe to her channel!) and I started thinking of which brand to use. I have done it before with Avon products, unfortunately, I can’t really consider it a one-brand look since I used a different foundation. I didn’t have any Avon foundy that time.
I also considered Ever Bilena, but I decided having something not many people had already used. I will still do it with Ever Bilena, though, just not for my first.
I almost ended up with San-San and Shawill, but I saw Makeup World in BeautyMNL. (Special shoutout to Mariel Orolfo whom I first learned about this product. Watch her video using the Ultimate Palette!)
So that’s when I got myself these products:
I got 6 products from Makeup World, a growing Pinoy brand with a very interesting concept in their palettes.
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw all the Makeup World products because of the packaging! You’ll never think that these are actually very affordable, which is a +++ for me!
Now, let’s break this down and start with the foundation.
Makeup World Cover Up Foundation in the shade Natural
“CLAIM TO FAME: A lightweight liquid foundation for a smooth, flawless look
FAST FACTS: Delivers full color coverage; buffs and blends into skin seamlessly; smoothens away fine lines, large pores, and rough areas; evens out a patchy skin tone; leaves a shine-free natural finish
PERFECT FOR: All-day skin polish”
To be honest, I love this product. I actually thought I’ll be needing to give this away, but I decided to keep it. I have been using this every day ever since I got it.
First thing I noticed is that it has a thick consistency, so you might wanna start with a little amount. It’s buildable anyway, you can add another layer without feeling sticky or heavy. It’s surprisingly lightweight and super blendable considering its consistency.
In my opinion, however, it does not have full coverage; but I can say it’s medium. It evens out my skin tone, but still does not completely cover up my pimple marks.
Aside from being lightweight, it has a demi-matte finish. There’s a little bit of dewiness, but it’s still more on the matte side. It also lasts all day and I don’t feel too sticky with it on my face even on a hot day.
It can be used alone, but to completely enjoy its effectiveness, better hydrate your face with a mist, moisturize, prime, and bake.
My only problem with it, is the shade. My bad, though. I picked the wrong one. I chose Natural, which turns out to be lighter than my skin tone, so I ended up mixing it with the Cover Up concealer which you will read about shortly.
Makeup World Cover Up Concealer in the shade Nude
“CLAIM TO FAME: An all-around creamy concealer that hides spots, blemishes, and under-eye circles
FAST FACTS: Lightweight, highly-blendable formula covers up imperfections; helps smoothen patchy areas to create the perfect base; evens out skin tone; ideal for bare-faced weekends
PERFECT FOR: Color correction and barely-there beauty”
Mixing this with the foundation works wonders on me. It has toned down the light shade of the foundation, so it perfectly matches my skin tone. It has improved the coverage of the foundation without making it patchy or cakey. It also dries down to matte and is really lightweight, so I don’t feel like I have makeup on!
My face does not also go crazy with it. It doesn’t have any breakouts or irritations.
Its consistency is similar to that of the foundation and it blends amazingly, too.
By the way, there is a slight scent to it, which isn’t irritating.
Makeup World Cover Up Pressed Powder in the shade Natural
“CLAIM TO FAME: A full-coverage powder pact for polished, perfect skin
FAST FACTS: Buildable formula covers and conceals blemishes and imperfections; smoothens away fine lines, large pores, and rough areas; evens out patchy skin; leaves a long-wearing matte finish
PERFECT FOR: Keeping excess sebum and oil under control”
Some powders are too powdery that my skin looks weird under them. But this powder does not give you a weird powdery finish, even if it’s matte. It has also helped even out my light foundation, and sets it and my concealer nicely.
It also lasts for hours and I think it keeps the oil at bay.
It also a mild scent, which is not overpowering nor annoying.
It comes with a puff that can pick up enough product and can apply the powder properly on the face.
Makeup World Eyeliner Pencil in Black
“CLAIM TO FAME: An easy-to-use creamy pencil that smoothly applies intense color
FAST FACTS: Quickly draws thin to thick lines without tugging skin; highly pigmented formula delivers a bold, dramatic finish; available in gorgeous eye-enhancing neutrals
PERFECT FOR: Standout eye definition”
It’s about 7 inches long which is not bad for only P99. It’s long so it will surely go a long way. It does have a creamy texture so it glides on the skin smoothly. I use it on my brows, too, and I have to keep a light hand as it is so pigmented. I don’t want to make my brows look unnaturally drawn.
Since it is creamy, it easily blends in the skin with an angled brush. You can also have an instant smokey eyes look, by lining your eyes with this pencil and blending it out with a brush.
I guess the only issue I have with this eyeliner is that it is not smudge-proof even when it sets.
Makeup World Transformation Palette in Natural/Glam
“CLAIM TO FAME: A travel-friendly palette that lets you change or enhance your regular beauty look
FAST FACTS: Features 3 layers of makeup in gorgeous glam hues; contains 8 eyeshadows, 8 lipsticks, and 2 blushes; provides natural to smoky shades for added intensity; lets you change your look with a few additional strokes of color
PERFECT FOR: Work and play”
This is, indeed, perfect for on-the-go women (and makeup lovin’ men, too!). With all the makeup included in this palette, this will surely lessen the amount of items in your kikay kit!
All the eyeshadow shades are perfect for day to night look. The pigmentation is pretty good, for something that’s as affordable as this. The color pay-off is quite impressive as well. It’s not buttery, though. In fact it’s quite powdery and the shimmery shade is a bit chalky, which I don’t mind at all, since it works well.
I love the color selection, because there is a light shade which is perfect for the base and brow bone. There are neutral shades, which are perfect for transition color, and for the lids, too. There are darker shades perfect for creating shadows on the crease and the outer V. Some of the browns are also good for contouring; while the shimmery gold can pass as a highlighter.
Here are the swatches of the eyeshadows:
Now let’s move on to the lippies.
All the shades in this palette are wearable, which is good, of course. We can choose a shade that suits our mood for the day. There are reds, pinks, and nudes. They are quite pigmented and they feel good on the lips. I’m not really a fan of the texture, though. It feels super creamy; when you touch it with your finger, it’s like touching a piece of chocolate that starts to melt.
But the good thing, though, is once it sets, it doesn’t feel as creamy. I think it can also last a few hours, because the swatches on my arm didn’t budge easily. My lips also feel moisturized.
Moving on to the next layer, which contains the powder blush.
There are two blush shades, one is a peachy pink and the other one is a shimmery light pink.
As you can see the pans are quite big, so you won’t run out of your blush that easily. They’re also very pigmented, so you need to use a light hand as you pick up some product and gently apply it on your cheeks. You wouldn’t wanna pack your brush with it, you might end up looking sick with a terrible allergy or sunburn.
Overall, this is a great palette for travelling, as well as for working. This is good for college students and for practical mommies who want to save some money.
Makeup World Pucker Up Lipstick in the shade Dublin
It’s creamy and quite pigmented even in one swipe. But, since it has a matte finish, it doesn’t look good on chapped dry lips. Make sure to moisturize and exfoliate. Use a lip scrub or your toothbrush to gently remove dead skin on your lips.
It’s also long-lasting; it leaves a neat stain after a few hours.
The lips feel moisturized, though, despite being matte. My only issue is the swatch in the picture. I chose this shade because of this:
