HG CONTOUR POWDER!!! Fanny Serrano Eyeshadow in Cinnamon Mousse
Who would have thought I’d find some good catch after all these months that theBalm’s Bahama Mama never made a comeback at my local Beauty Bar store? Thank you, Fanny Serrano for creating this holy-grail contouring product—-although I know this one’s labeled as an eyeshadow. Pigmentation is awesome. Not chalky. The color is close to the shade ‘taupe’. Much more of a muted brown. I tried it on the hollows of my cheeks and it’s wonderful! I will be repurchasing 2 backups of this anytime this week. I smell this one’s going to sell like pancakes. Probably this color is a new addition to their eyeshadow line since I haven’t seen much reviews about this (specifically this color), so far.
Amazingly, it only costs 195 pesos for a 4-gram pan. Now, that’s enough to get you a 6-month worth of swipes! LOL.
I will post some photos on my official Facebook page for actual photos when used. You can visit my page at https://www.facebook.com/matetsy28
Before I end this post, I won’t let this moment pass to share to you guys 2 of my favorite contouring powders: Fanny Serrano’s Cinnamon Mousse Eyeshadow and LA Passion’s Taupe Mineral Eyeshadow. Suprisingly, both are cheap and locally available. They can be bought at SM Department store. I bought 2 pieces of the same color from LA Passion since I know it will take me too long to find out a new alternative especially when I know I LOVE the product very much. It never hurts to be prepared, yes?
Swatch time! Left: LA Passion’s Mineral Eyeshadow in Taupe. Right: Fanny Serrano’s Eyeshadow in Cinammon Mousse. Since the former is more muted compared to FS, I use LA Passion for nose contouring…and the other brand on the hollows of my cheeks.

Contouring definitely takes time and practice. Not everyone has the same facial structure. My technique may not be your technique. As a freelance makeup artist myself, I have learned that you can never practice one technique in all clients. Diversity and uniqueness will always be there when dealing with clients. The more I practice on my clients, the more I learn and embrace the art of makeup artisty.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for my upcoming reviews! :)
