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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

lashblast length mascara, stretches the limits!

Nice noh? ๐Ÿ™‚ Also she got me something from MAC and REVLON.

MAC Mineralize Blush in GENTLE

Hope it is good as NARS and BENEFIT ๐Ÿ™‚ if yes, will collect MAC Blushes then! likey likey likey ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Masaya ito, need to try all of this! nomnom

xoxo kym!

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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
(11-19-10)

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Her taste is impeccable, love it: http://lacklusterr.blogspot.com/

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Such a MUA (Make-Up Addict) ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, i hope this blusher works for me but of course I won’t compare it to my ol’ fave NARS ๐Ÿ™‚

tada! no surprise ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Now, I am back to regular facial cleaning that won’t hurt my wallet! Cheers!

Reddish Hype

Nail Polish from Elianto, Base and Top Coat from Revlon ๐Ÿ™‚

Red is all over the place especially when it’s hearts day or ho! ho! Merry Christmas! But as of me Red is a color that makes me feel oh-so lady and think of happy thoughts. Fierce color indeed!

Eye Candy!

As much as possible I don’tย want anyone like professional manucaristย clean my finger nails due to its sensitiveย and thin skin. I always end up with bloody nails instead of a simple hint of “Mertayolet” ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So, I am hands on cleaning my fingernails from simple buffer from The Body Shopย ย and a nail clipper! But If I want to do the basics, I have cuticle remover and all those basic materials needed for cleaning luckily I am not suffering from bad ingrown ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a few colors in the rack that I usually put on my nails whenever I am in the mood in perking it up!
Though I am not that adventurous in color but the boldest are color Red, Purple, Black and Green.

So I am being adventurous… Red is the lucky color for this week!

Happy week ahead ๐Ÿ™‚

Color my Lips: CHANEL, MAC, SMASHBOX, REVLON etc..

Is there any girl in this world happens to own one lipstick or doesn’t experiment with different shades of lipstick? Kindly tell me who is she and I will be gladly to praise her LOL! Because in my case, I can’t have one lipstick with no back-ups or any selection… maybe I will never have enough ๐Ÿ™‚

Lipstick is a tool in girls lips for face decoration. lipstick gained popularity as a result of its use in the movie industry, and it became commonplace for women to apply makeup, (wikipedia)

It is also one of my top buys when I go shopping for beauty products, some Lipstick disappoint me but there are few brands like MAC cosmetics and Maybelline that makes my lips look healthier without flaking or something. I only use lipsticks occasionally! I recommend using Lip Balm for everyday use tho’

Anyway, to start with Lipstick Review… lemme present you my new babies!

Chanel
Chanel Lipstick in Rouge a Aventure Hydrabase no. 45

Sorry for the chopped top LOL
I didn’t know how to open the cap and accidentally damaged the top of it!

This lipstick has a light feeling on the lips.

I opt for red hues because that is the color that suits me than pink or pale shades.
I already look pale enough LOL
Pink shades can be my bestfriend but I still dont know what kind of pink shade is good for me ๐Ÿ™‚

Smashbox

Revlon Just Bitten

in Berry Juicy

Oh this one is also great when you want to have that red pucker lips without the feeling of having creamy lipstick because it’s only stain! I actually love it too! Ripen lips! Juicy, water-weight formula made with real fruit extracts stains lips for a sweetly seductive pout. Each shade features its own succulent, fruity flavor and scent. Rollerball tip precisely applies color.

MAC Lipstick in DIVA

(red shade)

Face of Australia

Svelte Lipstick

I thought this one is in odd color! but when I tried svelte lipstick it is also in red hue with shimmer.
Very sexy and fabulous.

Now, I am excited to use everything in every occasion that piled up on the month of December!

it’s fun being a girl!

Thanks to my Fairy in LAlaland
for giving generously the amazing make-up haul!
