All these are high-end products 🙂
Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eye Shadow Palette
This neutrals e/s palette is Laura Mercier’s release for this spring. When I saw the palette, I wanted it right away. Honestly, I had no idea it hasn’t been released yet at the time I first saw this. I went to the store to look for it. The saleslady told me they don’t have it yet, of course. Now I find out it was released only a few days ago.
Good morning, ladies! It’s hump day. I’m excited for the
paydayweekend in a couple of days and to watch Captain America: Civil War tonight. 😀 I’m also excited to show you my beauty buys. Hihi~
The past few weeks I did some beauty and skin care shopping, which isn’t impulse really because most of them I do need — I need more makeup to review for Glam Love. (LOLOL! Justify pa!)
We met up with Tess of TheAtheistDoc.ph last Saturday in Luna Specialty Coffee, BGC to give her loot. 🙂
Joiz and I with our giveaway winner :)
It was great meeting her and we had a blast hanging out with her. 😀
We are still very grateful to everyone who joined our humble giveaway. Again, please keep visiting because we’ll have other giveaways as well as for our beauty reviews and MOTDs of course. Leave comments if you have questions and requests too. We’d like our readers involved, so we have an idea what you would like to see here. 😉
CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Medium Beige
I mentioned many, many times that my T-zone gets super oily and that the oiliness has gotten worse lately. It might be the weather, change of diet since I’m incorporating healthier choices, or skin care products though I use the same. As much as I liked the L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup foundation, at some point, it started to just settle on my face and I would unknowingly get some on my fingers. I found out when I left a streak of foundation on a work document. I can’t even touch my face out of fear that I might transfer on other important stuff. Good thing I almost emptied the bottle, so I had a valid excuse to buy. I searched for foundations recommended for oily skin and saw CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in an online list of ‘best foundations for oily skin.’
Good news, Missha fans! In case you don’t know yet, Missha will have a soft-opening at V-Mall inside Cinderella.
At least this is good for Missha lovers near the Greenhills shopping area. 🙂
I just found out, even as a Missha user since years ago, Boa was their spokesmodel. Yeah, I’m one of those easily influenced when a favorite celebrity becomes a spokesperson for a beauty brand. XD;
Boa for Missha S/S 2013
I posted in IG the Naruko Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Solutions Clear Mask (and with it on my face LOL!) and here are my thoughts on it. 🙂
We are very excited to announce our winner to our first giveaway. 😀 We had to make a couple of draws because the entry of the first supposed winner went MIA. ^^;;; Before we announce the winner. we would like to express our biggest thanks to everyone who spared time to join. Thank you so much! Surely this won’t be our last giveaway. 😉
This heat is crazy. I feel sticky and dehydrated even though I drink water and Pocari a lot. My lips are dry and have been peeling too. I’ve been bummed out since I arrived home and this heat is not helping. Le sigh~ Games have been helpful plus a cup of Joe (yeah, I still drink it hot just because) though. Then I thought that instead of wasting energy getting bummed out, I’ll use the frustration on blogging. 😛
Have you joined our giveaway yet? One of the items we’re giving away is what I shall be reviewing tonight and it’s the Biore UV Perfect Bright Milk SPF50. 🙂
My previous mascara was Maybelline’s The Hyper Curl Mascara. Regardless of sweat and my oily face, it stays put without smudging or flaking. It did get flaky eventually, but might be because it has gotten dry and needs to be replaced. I would get another of it because we all know how it’s so easy on the wallet, right? But I want another option (and probably better) that can resist this summer heat.
I ended up at the L’Oreal stall at SM Makati’s (HUGE) beauty section as I searched for a mascara. L’Oreal had items discounted at 20%, but the mascara I found and then bought was 50% off. 🙂 It’s the False Lash Butterfly Waterproof Mascara.
I find myself lucky because whenever I run out of any beauty stuff it’s mostly when there are promos. There was also the ‘beauty emergency’ I had and Maybelline was also on sale then. They seem to have a year-round sale. XD;
Some three months ago, my L’Oreal Mat Magique All-in-One Matte Transforming Powder has hit pan at last. It wasn’t working well for me anymore either. Even my foundation. My skin has become oilier, which is still a mystery to me but that would be another story. Anyway, I can’t be without powder really, so it was right timing when Maybelline had another sale. Although what I bought wasn’t really at promo price, but still preeeeeetty cheap. It’s the Maybelline White Super Fresh — Claimed as “the no touch up powder foundation” and promises a 12-hour fresh and matte face.
We have been writing about several products that we love for years now. This year we plan to feature more products but also reach out to our readers. We want to hear what you think about the products we’ve reviewed before, and what’s a better way to let you, my dear, experience the products other than to give them to you.
That’s right, we are giving away some stuff that you should try for summer! Some of these would look familiar as we have talked about them before, while there are also new ones too.
Adding to my ‘Choice of Lippies for End of 2015‘ post are these lip swatches, which I honestly forgot. I was too excited! Anyway, on to the lip swatches:
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick in Bare It All (902C)
MAC Sin (Matte)
MAC Sin looks creamy in the photo, but it eventually loses that creamy finish.
NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick in Cruella
My lips were dry in the above photo, but it wasn’t because of the NARS lip pencil. I know I should have scrubbed before the lip swatch. If I did though, that means another day/s delay of this post. 😛
