Holiday Glam with Maybelline
Last Saturday, I was invited to two workshops: Maybelline’s and L’Oreal’s. Unfortunately, due to the horrible state of our Metro Manila traffic during the -Ber months (had to be in SMX by 6PM), I was only able to stay for Maybelline’s. The workshop was held at SM Makati’s Prestige Lounge and it was one of the most helpful beauty talks I’ve ever attended.
I learned a lot of things like:
- How to position your mirror when doing make-up so you don’t have to move your facial muscles so much.
- How to make your eyes bigger.
- How to brighten up your face through your eyebrows. This I really appreciated because I have long known how much eyebrows can completely change one’s demeanor.
- How to use blush highlights…
And many other very helpful tips.

I’ve already reviewed the Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals BB Cream, and I’ve noted its affordability and easy blendability. Here are the other Maybelline products I’d love to try.
Eye Studio Brow Definist Eyebrow Duo Palette (PhP359). I need to find an eyebrow palette with just the right shade of dark brown. The wrong shade makes my eyebrows look red and unnatural. Plus this is supposed to be made of wax, so it’ll also physically shape your brows.
Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner (PhP449). To practice the winged tips with.
Volum’Express Hypercurl Cat Eyes Mascara Hello Kitty Limited Edition (PhP499). I know they were promoting the Maybelline Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara, but this is Hello Kitty. I like Hello Kitty! And it’s limited edition.
