First, I want to apologize for the quality of the pictures of the eyeshadow and cheek palette. The swatches are fine, but the palette pictures were taken last year with a different camera and I only checked them today only to see how dark they were. I tried to edit them as much as I could; made sure the colors of the eyeshadows and blush are as close to real life.
I received a package from BPI last week and it was the Olay Anti-Ageing Solutions containing the Total Effects 7-in-One Day Cream and an Anti-Ageing Moisturizing Bar. This is free when you make a purchase with a minimum amount of PhP1500 using your BPI EPS. Remember my Estee Lauder purchase? I paid part of the total amount using BPI EPS, so I was able to get this. I was notified that the Olay Anti-Ageing Solutions will be sent a week or two after, but it arrived on my doorstep in less than five days I believe. If you made any purchase lately using your BPI EPS, don’t forget to claim this. 🙂 More details are available here — http://www.bpicards.com/olay
Clinique’s free services
I was able to complete the free services of Clinique at the nick of time. 😀 If I remember right, Joiz and I found out about the services less than two weeks before the last day. We tried to squeeze it in our seeminglybusy schedule. XDDD These are ‘after’ shots of some services I had:
I found out not too long ago that my brother changed the settings of my camera that’s why most of my FOTDs and FOTNs were either grainy or blurry. Lesson learned — Double-check settings of camera before taking pictures. Stupid of me not to think of that when I wondered all the time why the quality of the pictures didn’t look too well. Oh, since I browsed through previous FOTDs and FOTNs, I realized how I _slightly_ got better in makeup application.
The collection consists of:
Pure Color Sensuous Rouge Lip Color in Sultry Caramel, Sensuous Nude, and Sublime Nectar
Pure Color Five Color Topaz Mosaic eyeshadow palette
Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Topaz Chameleon
Pure Color Gloss in Citron Kiss
Pure Color Intense Kajal Eye Crayon in Dramatic Black and Dramatic Teal
Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Teal Topaz
I love the color of Dramatic Teal. I have read some blogs on this collection and Topaz Chameleon is getting good reviews. I think I want that. :3 Because I lack a highlighter and bronzer in my makeup stash. Topaz Chameleon makes a great of both. 😀 Citron Kiss is as tempting as the aforesaid. I have yet to see if this collection is/will be available locally.
I’ve had this duo eyeshadow for quite a while now.
The sponge-tip applicator ‘melted’, so I threw that away. Who uses those? I sometimes do. 😛
Plastic case seems durable enough and its clear cover is a bit thick. What I dislike about cases like this is that it loses the ‘lock’ in time. But the cover doesn’t open that easily as the hinges are adequately tight. This is smaller than my palm, so it shall easily fit your purse or cosmetic case.
We celebrated my brother’s birthday last night. His birthday was actually last Thursday, July 28. Fortunately, I got to leave office early because of an evacuation drill. I was able to prepare myself with a simple look. 🙂
My right eye is a bit red ^^;;;
Etude House BB Cream
Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer
I didn’t put any blush-on because my skin’s still reddish from the beach. Well, I rarely use blush-on anyway.
I think this came out blurry.
Sorry, kind of in a hurry. (They rhyme! :P)
