Make-up Haul

Month: November 2010

I am still in my mini-getaway and am happy to be pampered like a princess and shop like a pro! πŸ™‚

I had my hair colored which I am obsessing for months before the wedding and facial cleaning due to heavy make-up worn last Friday

As you all know, I am forever searching for make-up goodies that is suitable to my skin and it’s so hard to pick because I am oily and acidic!

Goodness it’s a blessing and a curse as the same time? Why I say so… Blessing because having an oily skin will not make your skin age fast, while being an acidic is a curse because not all make-up goodies is available for use.

Creamy and liquid base make-up are something I can’t use on a regular basis or even occasionally because it melts like crazy on my skin like you can also put an egg and start to fry it on my face! blech.

Hokay, let’s see the pics!

Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily skin in 180 Sand Beige

That’s why I don’t like surfing blogs! why? I am truly influenced buying good stuff from trusted bloggers like mimi! She’s a friends from livejournal for 3 years now or more… She really write good stuff when it comes to beauty products πŸ™‚ Her taste is impeccable, love it:

I tried it a while ago and I must say it’s not cakey, although I still don’t know if this one is long-wearing since I need to take it off after an hour because my skin is still in a healing process due to peeling from my last procedure in belo clinic… so, yes my skin is peeling right now πŸ™‚ for the love of vanity! You think it’s easy to have a ready to go look?! haha you must invest! LOL

Oh may I add this one is affordable πŸ™‚

Such a MUA (Make-Up Addict) πŸ™‚

I also bought new Lip colour!

Elianto Moisture Lipstick in Sweetie Red

I love the colour, it gives more life to my face even without eye make-up.

When it comes to lip colour, eye shadows etc (except for foundation and face powder) I don’t have loyalty to a certain brand! I like trying everything πŸ™‚ but when a make-up will cause me an acne or feel itchy… I toss it without thinking twice.

But if you’ll ask me my most favorite lipstick brand(s): MAC, Chanel and Clinique.

I also bought baked blusher (marble)

Elianto Baked Blusher (marble)

I fell in love with the color, but I don't know if it's bagay on my skin πŸ™‚

Well, i hope this blusher works for me but of course I won’t compare it to my ol’ fave NARS πŸ™‚

tada! no surprise πŸ™‚ Naubusan ako ng so I need to buy this.

That’s all for the month of November! Actually my moolah goes to spa and facial treatments in Belo because of my wedding πŸ™‚ Now, I am back to regular facial cleaning that won’t hurt my wallet! Cheers!


Stylish Pocket Mirror

Before I bore you with my wedding stories πŸ™‚ let’s have a commercial break!

Aside from being a hardcore corporate lady! I am very passionate when it comes to the world of beauty madness! from Spa services, Make-up trends, Toiletries, Make- up tools and everything ka-kikayan… name it!!! I’m all ears… I swear we can talk about it 24/7!

Anyway, I like to share my new found friend!

Pocket Mirror with LED Lights from Suesh

I only bought this for Php 300.++
It is so cheap but gawd I love the “reflection” and lights!

Actually I am also getting their round mirror with light! it sells for only Php 2,500++ πŸ™‚ I swear, it’s a steal!

Where the magic happens!

So, I lost my first ever make-up metal case due to non-stop flights last May 2010.

Sniff* but I let go anyway after a month-long-agonizing days… not because of the case, but because of what’s inside! LOL

Anyhoo, I bought new 2-layer tray make-up case from Suesh.

lovely toy!

I’ll just store my current faves here together with my finest brushes from MAC and ECO tools since everything is in a plastic drawer, dramatically living in the dark πŸ˜€

and oh, for an OC and super protective that I am when it comes to my toys πŸ™‚ I bought:

Transparency OHP Film

even my make-up drawer has it, ayoko kasi madumihan yung drawer or anything kung saan nakalagay make-up ko except for make-up bags… minsan kasi pasaway din ang ibang lalagyan ng make-up, ayoko ng may mga stains! sympre minsan kamalasan, nababasag pa yung make-up kaya puro dumi na 😦 ph well part yun ng adventure!

Sayang naman din kasi yung lalagyan diba? so mas maganda na kung maingat!

OH well, I love it. Can’t wait for my next pay check and will hoard a lot of things… dami pa sa listahan ko bago mag 2011 πŸ˜€
