Current Five Product Face

The “five product face” is a term in the beauty community used to describe a collection of five reliable products that can make a full makeup on the go.

And as someone who loves to collect makeup but not wear it all the time, I have accumulated a number of product staples that can make me look good and ready to go.

Here’s five I’ve been currently using:

Shawill BB Cream

The last time I blogged about my five product face was year 2016. And much to my surprise there is one product that remains a staple to me for everyday use - Shawill BB Cream.

I just love this product so much and I can’t even remember how many times I’ve repurchased this BB Cream for the last two years.

What I like most about this BB Cream is it matches my skin tone perfectly. It makes me look awake after us.

How I Use It? I squeeze a pea size amount on to the back of my hand and use the dotting motion to disseminate in my problematic areas such as undereye, pimple marks and uneven skin tone.

Price: 165pesos
Availability: Shawill Kiosks. All Department Stores and Beauty Specialty Stores Nationwide.

Bench Brow Lasting Mascara in Dark Brown

This is definitely part of my holy grail makeup products. I discovered this also in 2016 and have used it until emptied.

Just last November, I repurchased the product and it still performs amazingly in my opinion.

What makes the Bench Brow Lasting Mascara so good?

It’s waterproof. And I am a living testament of how good this product is for underwater activities.

I’ve used this brow mascara in my Caramoan Trip and Palawan Trip and I swear my brow didn’t budge at all.

I also like how easy it is to use. You can use it on its own as long as your brows are groomed and it looks good. This definitely cut my previous brow routine in half.

How I Use It? As mentioned, I use it on its own using short, upward strokes.

Price: 139pesos
Availability: Bench Kiosks



Petal Velvet Powder in Shade #23 from Althea

Although I had this just recently, this Petal Velvet Powder from Althea quickly became a staple in my everyday look.

I love this powder so much. And got it for free from the Althea Angels Welcome Gift.

First, the shade matches me perfectly. If you are more of a yellow undertone, definitely choose shade #23.

Second, the powder is ultra-fine. It reminds me of the Innisfree No Sebum Powder which I also like. It produces a flawless finish when used, does not set on lines and helps control my oily face.

Third, it is perfect for quick touch up. I used this during my trip to Malaysia and that’s when I fell in love with it. I like how it mattifies my face well.

How I Use It? I simply tap to release the product and with a powder puff I sweep a small layer of powder on areas where I applied the BB Cream.

Price: 210pesos

KJM Lip and Cheek Tint

KJM Lip and Cheek Tint is a proudly-Pinoy product made of organic/natural ingredients. I discovered it in2 017 and made a detailed review about the product here: KJM Lip and Cheek Tint Review.

Till now I love using this lip and cheek tint to give my cheeks and lips some natural color.

If you are looking for a good lip and cheek tint I definitely recommend this.

How I Use It? I normally use my finger to smudge a small amount of tint to the apples of my cheeks and to my lips. Sometimes I top it with a powder blush to seal the color.

Price: 130pesos
Availability: Online or Distributors

L'oreal Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Cowboy

Last but not the least to my current five product face is L'oreal Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Cowboy. I really adore this liquid lipstick for its color, texture in the lips and lasting power. Out of the many liquid lipsticks I own this one is surely a keeper.

The shade Cowboy is a top pick for me the first time I saw the shade selection. It is the color I love to wear given the rich deep terracotta with a creamy and pigmented formula.

I was about to create a separate review post about this product but I failed to do so. Hopefully this quick intro and swatches give you idea on how good this liquid lipstick is.


How I Use It? I apply the product directly and outline the lips making sure it there’s no smudges. For everyday use I just use a small amount of product and use my fingers to dab and distribute instead.

Price: 390pesos
Availability: Online or L’oreal Kiosks

I hope you enjoyed today’s post.
