What's in my Kikay Kit?

Don't you just love raiding other people's Kikay kit? Haha! Well I do! (My friends know that!) I always want to check out different makeup products and when i find it interesting, I try it out myself.

A few days ago, I asked my twitter friends on their Top 5 Kikay kit must-haves. Such a joy to read their response. But thankfully, this is not Twitter and I will not limit my list to 5! (Cause there's just too many great makeup products out there) Today, I'll give you my Lucky 12!

Here's what's inside my Makeup kit!

1. MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC42

Love love the coverage! I found my best match since MAC has the best shade collection.

2. MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer in NC35 (Smart Officemates' gift)
This is best for us Filipinas who have yellow undertone. Like I said, this will instanly give you 8 hours of sleep.

3. IN2IT Waterproof Eyebrow Colour

This palette has 3 shades of brown that are closer to Asian hair color. I really prefer to use powder on my brows cause it's easier to blend. With this product, I can my make brows look thick. FYI: the thicker your brows are, the younger you'll look. Wag lang Unibrow! You can wear thick brows just as long as their well-groomed. They'll be perfect!

4. MAC Brow Set in Girl Boy (My sister's gift)

Another favorite! Gives texture to flat and too dark brows. Hindi na uso ang itim na brows. It should always be 2-3 shades lighter or darker (for blondes) than your hair color. You should try it yourself especially for girls with brown or blonde dyed hair. This will be your bestfriend.

5.Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Need I say more? It's world's best eyelash curler. Instantly makes my eyes pop and curl lasts all day!

6. Blistex Lip Tone SPF 15

By far the best lip balm I ever tried! What I like about this product is how it blends to your natural lip color. I hate it when strawberry flavored lip balm give your lips a harsh red color(color may depend on the flavor of your lipbalm. If it's orange, then BAM...there goes your orange lips! LOL). This doesn't only give you natural lip color but also moisturizes (No to chapped lips!). Some of the Atene College Glee Club boys use this product during performances as substitute to lipstick.

6. Herbench Prettywhenpinched Cheek and Lip Tint

Like I said in my tweet, this is a clone of Benefit Benetint but way cheaper. When I'm not in mood to put on makeup, I just put this on my lips and cheeks to add color to my face. Did I say that pigment lasts all day?

7. Benefit Coralista (Cas' gift)

The perfect company of #6! Coralista highlights your cheekbones without the nitty girtty process of contouring! You always look like your flushing.

The next products are things that I don't normally use everyday. They are my 'ADD-ONs'! Whenever I feel like changing my look for the day, I rely on these stuff that I also carry everyday.

8. Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

I swear by this eyeliner! I love gel liners! I remember that this was recommended by the hired MUA for my sister's wedding (who btw only uses MAC and Lancome except for this one). He said that it's easy to use and glides smoothly to your lids. Plus, it comes with a handy brush (but I just wish it was a bit thinner).

9. Revlon Double Twist Waterproof Mascara in Blackest Black

All girls in the Glee Club got PHP10k worth of makeup from Revlon and this is one of the products that we got (We actually have 2 of this). This gives the right length and volume however it can get clumpy at times. What I do is wipe off the excess formula on a tissue paper before I use it on my lashes.

10. Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Buff

If I want natural looking lips for the day, I use this product. I love how it gives color and moisturizes as well! But be ready to retouch it every now and then.

11. Revlon Matte Lipstick in Mauve It
Another product part of the Revlon freebie! I actually had the same shade before I got the freebie. Unfortunately/fortunately, I lost it days before they gave us the Revlon loot bag. Now I have 2! Weee! Super love the pinkish nude color! Goes well with smokey eyes!

12. MAC Russian Red (My brother's gift)
The best Red lipstick that will look good on anyone because it's blue-based red. Whenever I'm too lazy to put on eyeshadow or eyeliner, this is my go-to makeup. Brightens your face in an instant!

That's it! You might imagine that I have a big makeup kit but you'll be surprised and wonder how I can fit everything in it.

Share yours as well! I'd be very interested to know what's inside your makeup kit! :)
Btw, I'm super excited to share to you my new makeup traincase! Not the fancy kind but it's one of my dream makeup train-cases! :)
