MAC: WONDER WOMAN Collection

MAC Wonder Woman Collection

meow 🙂

As I continue my adventure in finding the right make-up for me, MAC is one of my favorite brand. I have no loyalty when it comes to make-up brand yet anything that works for meis ze best 🙂 Not to forget the classy packaging of MAC cosmetics, I just love it. But I must admit, I am collectiing MAC brushes, so far so good 🙂 as I always said, there is something about beauty producst in me. (HEAVEN!)

Anyway, let me share you my purchase today:

MAC WW in Russian Red

Wonder Woman Launching in Trinoma, March 20, 2011

I am 30 minutes late and yes "Marquise d' lipstick" was sold out!!!

Even my second choice Spitfire was sold out just like that. I was suppose to attend yesterday at Greenbelt but I have date with girlfriends… MAC WW has launching in Shangrila and Rockwell. I didn’t ask for the date because I’ll just get frustrated once I don’t get the famous: Marquise d. Anyway, I just want the color because like MAC’s Lady Gaga edition, it is sooo bagay in any outfit 🙂 I even got my Lady Gaga from my bestfriend that was bought in the states pa. So, anyway I don’t want to go empty handed, so I just bought the Russian Red, although it is included in the classic… the casing or whatever you call it, will have to do 🙂

Ish, the make-up artist in MAC is my favorite at Trinoma Temporary store 🙂

Ish Sison, MAC Make-up Artist is truly nice. She is so accomodating, I experienced some snob make-up artist in few MAC store and it is so irritating. Anyway, Ish is the best! She will help you to find the best make-up that compliments in your skin so whatever she recommends I buy it 🙂 effective naman kase! he he

Moving on, MAC Launching in Trinoma has:

place for Photo op

Cool DJ (damn I love the song! I can dance like now na!)

It is so cool even I didn’t get what I want! Well, at least I bumped into my friend’s sister!

with Genevieve Tong, my friend's Jackie Tong- Go sister 🙂

Ate Gen, is uber nice and pretty. I even had to ask who is her Skin Doctor since mine is Belo. Gawd, I am amazed whe she answered it 🙂

Hokay, that’s all folks! I am happy for today’s purchase.

Nail Art

I went to MAC temporary store last week at Trinoma to buy a brow set. I was assisted by MAC’s make-up artist named Ish as mentioned in my blog earlier.

I can’t help but notice her nails. I asked where did she had it digitally printed… she answered: Sticker lang po yan ma;ám nabibili sa Divisoria.

Wow! I was giddy for a moment, since then I can’t stop thinking about going to Divisoria just to have that nail stickers. Since animal print is still hot I might as well join the club, not only to be fashion forward but it also compliments my skin.

My first sticker nail art 🙂 in exotic animal print

It is so easy to use. I bought the water pump designed for nail art materials but you can simply dip it in a bowl of water, I am just maarte. I did this while watching burlesque movie (Cher & Christina Aguilera) So, I am very perky during the time. For almost an hour, I already did my nails and boy I am so proud! I guess more to come this summer 🙂

Nail Materials that you'll need 🙂 *Base Sheer Nail Polish, Water Pump, Nail Art Sticker and Nail File*

You’ll be needing the nail file to cut the excess sticker from the tip of your nails. Once after you put the nail sticker on, just top it with base sheer let it dry and off you go 🙂

If I am not mistaken Digital Nail Art cost around Php 300.00 depending on nail salon rate. I bought Nail Sticker for Php 40.00 only. Oh well, it’s cheaper when you do it manually. So far, I am happy with the result… no need to have the Digital Nail Art 🙂

The Papyrus

You’ll be surprise by the interest of other people. Just like what I discovered!
Never in my lifetime did I saw a Papyrus, until recently during my plant visit in Marikina, one of the company employee takes good care of a plant.

The Papyrus

I was amazed by the papyrus and even asked where can I buy it. Unfortunately, it was hand carried when the employee went to Egypt. (Sosyal) the water can’t also be replaced as per the “plant keeper” the water is the source of vitamins of the papyrus. So they just change the glass where the plant sits.

So, there you go! my experience seeing a papyrus in real life 🙂 I love plants and someday when I already own a house will surely have a garden.

Ayala Triangle Courtyard

Ayala Triangle Courtyard

In corporate world, stress is part of it. I guess whatever you do… stress is always present whether good or bad. In my case, when bad stress is attacking like my head is going to explode anytime… I go outside the office during lunch. It really helps to see different environment aside from the four corners of the office.

I am just lucky that my office (The Enterprise Centre *TEC*) is in the heart of Makati, which is near at: Greenbelt, Landmark, Glorietta and Ayala park triangle.

I know it’s not healthy to hit fastfood and all sorts, but the relaxation I get from lunch-out is priceless.

Okay, nuff said fotos!

Her name is Eurose Onas, Yong for short 🙂

I simply love having her around. Yong is an optimist, her stories always inspires me as well as the same interests we share such as travel, beauty products and being a wife. It’s true what they say that surrounding yourself with positive people will definitely lift a happy spirit in a moment.

Enjoying few days left in my stay at Makati grounds 🙂

Today, we decided to have lunch at Ayala triangle in Bonchong. The chicken is yummy 🙂 Different naman.

Bonchon is not as pricey as you think 🙂

it's the letter B: 2 pcs Chicken with Soda for only Php 145.00 plus the ambiance LOL

The Ayala Triangle Park

I always love the kind. It is soothing and pleasant to the eyes, if only we can have parks in every corner of the city, malamang naging tambay na ako ng park 🙂 LOL

After the main meal we decided to have dessert! Yay!

The table is cute tho'

The classic Banoffee pie

I love the people around, all those power dressing which I am guilty of and their aura. They look somewhat happy and busy at the same time. Duh, welcome to corporate city. I always opt for things that can make me happy and inspired. With little things like having lunch-out can boost my sleepy blood in a nutshell.

NATIONAL BLOGGERS ASSOCIATION OF THE PHILIPPINES

I’ve been into blogging since 2004. I started from Livejournal, Multiply, WordPress then Tumblr until I went back to the loving arms of WordPress which I find more relevant and easy to use. Blogging is therapeutic to me, I am here to share tidbits of my life in able to inspire others and you’ll never know you might learn and thing or thousands LOL so there goes my two cents. I decided to signed up for the National Bloggers Association of the Philippines for so many reasons specifically to preserve my random entries posted in blogosphere by using freedom of speech/expression.

Here’s the draft manifesto of National Bloggers Association (NBAP) to provide a starting point towards forming an association of Filipino bloggers. Please feel free to make suggestions to improve this statement of intent.

One country, one blogging community. A Manifesto of Filipino bloggers and netizens (Draft) March 7, 2011 We, Filipino bloggers coming from various places nationwide and those based overseas, coming from diverse backgrounds and specialties, using various new media outlets, hereby freely come together and call for the formation of a bloggers association of the Philippines that shall unite us around these common and beneficial objectives:

• Promote and defend the right to free speech and to free expression;
• Promote and develop blogging, vlogging, photoblogging, microblogging and other online creative and expressive forms in all their diverse categories, topics and types;
• Gather and share Philippine blogging’s best practices that reflect our contributions to ourselves and our online communities, media, causes, organizations and businesses, government, the nation and the world;
• Draft and adopt a code of ethics that underscore the members’ and organization’s sense of responsibility and maturity;
• Discuss issues and concerns that confront our members;
• Campaign and work for more affordable, reliable and better internet access in the country The association we aspire to form is voluntary in membership, national in scope, democratic in decision-making, progressive in outlook, and both non-partisan and non-profit in legal character.
• We draw inspiration from and ask the participation of the city-wide, provincial, regional and island-wide associations, summits and conventions initiated by bloggers across the country. We also pay tribute to overseas Filipinos and their blogging organizations and events.
• We want an association that makes decisions based on democratic processes, consensus-building and mutual benefit. A long time has passed since the first blog posts and first blogging events. We are now a bigger, stronger and influential community. Businesses, causes and government have started to organize themselves to interact and engage with us. And we also face challenges within and outside our growing community. The Philippines, our country and people are also expecting more from us, and we bravely and fearlessly say that we want to do more and achieve more In view of all these and more, we declare that we are joining as founding members of what we hope would be a most awesome bloggers association for our country.

Goodies from Kym!

A good friend of mine named Kym, went home here in the Philippines for a vacay from Canada. She surprised me with a loot bag of wonderful things 🙂

COVERGIRL: lashblastlength

Haven’t tested it, but the packaging is good. Idol ko yata si Drew Barrymore (as if magiging si drew ako after using this haha! LOL) It also comes with eye pencil in Black Onyx. It’s a self-sharpening eye pencil 🙂

lashblast length mascara, stretches the limits!

Nice noh? 🙂 Also she got me something from MAC and REVLON.

MAC Mineralize Blush in GENTLE

Hope it is good as NARS and BENEFIT 🙂 if yes, will collect MAC Blushes then! likey likey likey 🙂 Kudos to you kym!

yummyness ang colour!

Moving on, I am not a snob of drugstore make-up… I love everything that compliments my skin. I am not even loyal when it comes to brands 🙂 especially make-up. Only with needed staples (e.g. foundation, pressed powder and concealer) So, kym also got m Revlon! I am a fan of color stay line up! it really works…

Revlon: ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder

Revlon’s Mineral Finishing Powder in 010 Brighten Eclatant… Ano raw? Basta di ko alam gamitin ito pero madali lang yan! THANKS to youtube ha ha!!! di ko malamn kung blush on ba ito, pang contour oh pang dewy effect. ANyhoo there’s always a first time! walang basagan ng trip 🙂 Masaya ito, need to try all of this! nomnom

xoxo kym!

Ang Kilay!

MAC BROW SET

Pasok sa banga! aminado ako… kung meron akong pinagdidiskitahan everymorning! it’s my eyebrows. I want it almost perfect… makapal and all! tawag nga nila ay: Artista Kilay. The trendy makapal na kilay na maganda! I likey.

My make-up artist Kris Bacani, recommended Makeup forever’s brow set. I bought it but unfortunately I can’t master it! epic fail. It’s a liquid base make up at nanginginig ang mga kamay ko ha ha 🙂 but I love it. Pero kasi naman, sa umaga I only give 45 minutes (45?!) para ayusin ang sarili ko, kasama na blow dry dun. Anyway… don’t ask me kung how many products I have tried just to have that artista kilay! I am obsess, kung iba sa buhok nagtatagal kaka plantsa, ako sa kilay ko hahaha!!!

Moving on, thank God there’s MAC temporary shop sa trinoma. 10-15 minutes away from our house, so gora ako pag gising ko and bought it. ISH, the make-up artist na nag assist sa akin last night made a perfect demonstration sa akin! Na aliw ako, I was convinced. Winner! Actually nag pa make-up na ako sa kanya ng bongang bonga for a new me kuno this summer. See I am preparing for my long vacation! LOL

GIRL BOY

GIRL BOY brow set is good for coloured treated hair. It brighten up my face and gives natural look 🙂 Once I decided to go black again, will opt for Beguile. It’s a dark brown shade (if I’m not mistaken) and it really caters to my taste. I love how this product works!

This week, I will buy 2 more products in MAC since it’s a major staple. I need my FIX in NC 35 (naubos na!) and lipstick in wonderwoman collection. I love to have the Marquise D, it’s closer to Muave of Bare Esscentuals which is not available here in the Philippines. I will also have to buy the cosmo and syrup since it compliments my skin. It’s important for me to have a well groomed/set of eyebrows and charming lip colour before I go outside the world.

As I always say, make-up makes me happy. Hitting the Beauty counters makes me giddy, tulala at parang nakakita ng aswang LOL parang candy factory (not the one yung nasa SM na pinaglalaruan ng mga bata ha?! LOL) it’s utopia whenever I am inside! same thing goes when I am inside a bookstore. Hokay, shuddup daldal ko nanaman.
