You’re getting a second helping of beauty today because I’ll be up to my ears in theater work tomorrow for Joseph, the musical. This has to be one of the cheapest makeup finds I’ve had in quite awhile, and I’m prepared to rave because these are good! I needed to find some extra makeup bits for our work on Joseph but they’d have to be cheap with good value. I walked into the Dollar Store in Alabang Town Center not expecting to find these Santèe Rouge/mousses. Affordable, highly pigmented,shimmer-free matte cream blush in compacts with covers you don’t have to twist off. They’re currently on offer for Php69 (less than $2.00 USD) for a limited time.

I first bought two and left the store briefly, and I promptly tried #03 on in the ladies’ room. Upon discovering that they were a shimmer-free cream to powder formula that were also good enough to pat onto well-exfoliated lips, I hurried back remembering they were on Php69 offer perhaps only for a limited time (the sales guy said they sell for over a hundred elsewhere) and I got two more shades. I was on the hunt for some extra makeup bits for our work on Joseph the musical tomorrow…I needed the orange blush in particular for the concept of this look which we aren’t copying exactly but are drawing some inspiration from.
…and also realized I only had one cream blush in my professional kit. Obviously I decided that problem had to be solved. Reminder, be sure to swatch or patch test (apply on small facial area) affordable makeup from stores always before purchasing though. Click through to see me wearing these shades.
