Review: Ever Bilena HD Eye Pencil in Soft Black

Surprise! So today is the start of our Christmas Break so I'll have plenty of time to post- and I have no idea on what to say if I wont. Hihi. Anywhoo.. I did noticed that I rarely purchase makeup ever since I stopped blogging. Except my dad who didn't really had any gifts for me during my birthday, bought me alot of Catrice Cosmetics in Singapore. (I'll post the review of each).

But tonight, I will be reviewing this good pencil. It's a local brand called Ever Bilena and it is, affordable. I think this is less than P100 or -$3.00. I didn't hesitated to purchase this since I was expecting myself to use it on my classmates. After trying it out on my hand as a swatch, it is really good for the price.

Ever Bilena HD Eye Pencil in Soft Black

So the pencil itself is really simple. No much design or anything. I forgot to take a photo of the body but anyway, better than nothing.

As you could see, the pigmentation is pretty much "soft black" so it means that the name of the pencil is valid. It glides nicely to the skin and you don't need to tug it. Although, the big disadvantage I have on this pencil is that it smudges within 4 hours. It doesn't really stay on the lids long enough. If you are going to use this on a smokey eye or the base of a dark color, I think it is decent to use it. But for waterlining, tight lining etc. definitely no thanks. Since the price is affordable, I have no regrets purchasing this product. Although, I'll use it as a base for dark colors and maybe as an eyebrow shader. 

Will I repurchase it? Maybe yes, maybe no.
Will I recommend it? Yes.

Review: Nichido Stardust Eyeshadow Palette in Totally Neutral

Hey guys! I am soo busy with school stuff and I am having sore eyes right this instance. Anyways, I'm sorry for becoming idle for a long time but I am posting two reviews today.


It has a simple packaging, it fits to your purse (I haven't tried fitting it to a coin purse, yet.) and is very affordable. I really like the simplicity of the packaging not really Kawaii much. I am not sure about the price since this palette has been in my collection for a long time and I haven't hit the pan yet. Which is great.

It has a large mirror inside, but I do like the fact that the palette is still light with the mirror. It also has a sponge applicator but as always, throw it away!

It consists of three eyeshadows, from left to right: Matte mauvey-like, Light Pink, Dark Glittery Brown. All of them are really pigmented. The pink one in the middle actually has the Nichido writing but since I am using it all the time, it vanished. I really like the amount of product you get for less than P200 (-$5) because it's been a long time and I haven't hit the pan of any.

The product has a minimal fall-out but for the glittery brown, it has tons of it. The Light pink which has a small amount of being metallic, has the least fall out. Although, I love the shade for a highlight color. I like the fact that the mauve color complements the actual palette which is great. They all last for atleast 3-4 hours without primer. They fade off little by little after the third hour. One swipe of the brown is very pigmented already. No scent on any of the shadows. They blend smoothly and without hassle. 


Will I recommend this? Yes!
Will I repurchase this? Maybe.
