M&Co. Cosmetics... Where have I been?Saturday, October 06, 2012
Being a Makati girl has some advantages and some disadvantages. One of the disadvantages is not having to discover M&Co. Cosmetics sooner. These babies are only sold in Megamall, Alabang, and in Pasong Tamo I think? Anyway, moving on.
I was in SM Megamall yesterday, I was in the cosmetics department buying loofa when I came across the counter of M&Co. Honestly? If I didn't see Mikee Cojuangco's signature plastered all over their neon sign, I wouldn't have known that it was a local brand.
The packaging is just AAAHHH-mazing. I love that their colors are copper and silver. The packaging of the product itself is a beautiful puter color.
All of their products come with those little velvet/velour pouches that is just ADORBS! I mean, how cute is that? It's really first class packaging! And some of you may already know, I am a sucker for cute and classy packging! (Eyeshadow Quad in Orange Burst P290.00)
This is the most neutral palette/nude palette from their collection. I just fell in love with it, so it was the first one to go in my basket! (Eyeshadow Quad in Bronze Ambition P290.00)
This blush is a nice orange-pink color. It's more on the orange though. I got it to try because the color complemented the eye palettes I got! (Charming Blush in Sweet Rust P275.00)
Their waterproof liner has a very stiff end which is perfect for beginners in using liquid liners. Its stiff tip makes it wasier to control! Long lasting too! (Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black P160.00)
In all fairness, their mascara is good. It's no Maybelline, but at least it does its job to keep the lashes curled and elongated. The consistency is not sticky so another plus for me. (Waterproof Mascara in Black P195.00)
I know these glossed look the same, but one is actually pigmented which can be used alone, and the other one is just tinted which you can use on top of your favorite day time lippie! It's not sticky, and the shine lasts a long time. (Lip Gloss in Rosa Love and Bougainvillea P135.00/each)
The packaging of the lipstick is the first one I have seen. It's sort of mechanical. You have to press it to close it, and press the bottom part again to release the lipstick from the tube! It's just cute! Staying power is great! I tried on the red lipstick in-store and when I got home after dinner (about 3 hours later), my lipstick was still there! (Long Lasting Matte Lipstick in Love and Biscuit P190.00/each)
I will definitely go back to get some more products from this brand! Stay tuned for the tutorial video coming up soon!
I just used one of the palettes for a day makeup then night makeup just so I can test the products. Will probably include on of the eyeshadow palettes in a giveaway. But anyway, here's the night look:
I'm really having a blast with the Photobooth! LOL! Will post the tutorial on YouTube soon!
