Did some traveling this year and I thought I would share what I put in my cosmetics and toiletries bag.
I usually use the Clinique cosmetics bag I got for free from their offer last year. It forces me to bring only what I can fit in. The pocket fits my cosmetics while the big compartment is where my toiletries go. I like to get samples or travel-size products because they save me time from having to transfer to small containers, saves bag space, and I can hand-carry if needed. I bring what’s only essential because I want to keep my luggage within the ‘free baggage allowance.’
The FOTD or makeup is irrelevant to the holiday. I just used that for the title because I went out on that holiday to hang out and magpalamig with Kat. We made some discovery that day — Uniqlo and Claire’s are opening in Glorietta 5 soon. We went OMGOMGOGMOGMOGMOGMOGMGOMGOMG when we saw the huge Uniqlo tarpaulin in the near-empty mall.
Anyway, this was my makeup. Very demure. LOLOL The colors for my eyes are colors of spring — Green and yellow with a little brown which reminds me of sunflowers as many as that in the Big Fish movie. ♥
Last April, I shared here the mess that was my desk and one product I mentioned to have bought was the Revlon ColorStay Mineral Foundation.
“Pure, lightweight, loose powder mineral foundation that is good for your skin and wears for up to 16 hours.”
I usually use liquid foundation but since our summers can get very hot and it gets just too heavy and sweaty to wear liquid foundation on a regular basis, I wanted to switch back to powder foundation. Then there was my long standing curiosity to use mineral make-up. I was on a moderate budget so the Revlon ColorStay Mineral Foundation seemed to fit the bill.
Belated Halloween, kiddies! How was yours? Mine was fantastic and I spent most of it as a zombie.
This was pre-bloody me
All bloodied up
I believe I was the freakiest zombie during the walk
Shabby wanted me to make a tutorial on how to achieve this zombie effect. Well I’ll try.
As my base, I used Dr. Jart Black Label BB Cream to even out my skintone. Then I used Kokuryu, a greenish pancake foundation to make me pale (when applied on skin, it becomes white with light green undertone). Unfortunately, I think Kokuryu has folded up. *shrugs*
This is Lancome’s Summer 2010 Collection — Bronze Riviera. I forgot I had this in the drafts and only remembered after reading Musings of a Muse’s review of the collection. ^^;;; So this is late since summer’s over. The folks from the Philippines would know that the rainy season has already started.
All Over Magic Bronzing Brush ($33.00), Ageless Minerale Blush ($29.50),
Tropiques Mineral Bamboo Bronzer Temptingly Bronze ($45.00),
and Ageless Minerale Blush ($34.00).
Not that I intend to make a weekly makeup haul. XD; Anyway, I have been debating in my head over and over again whether I should get an eyeshadow palette I saw in a forum. The seller’s offer was cheaper than those listed in eBay.ph. I was having second thoughts because I have a preorder of another eyeshadow palette. When i was able to confirm that my preorder won’t be arriving very soon, I decided on getting the palette from the forum. 🙂
Hello! The name’s Shabby and, if you know me irl, you would be surprised why I’m part of a beauty blog. 😛 I’m into Gundam, photography, cameras, cars, figures (Revoltech) — most of what boys would be interested in. Very, very few knows I’m also into makeups. Specifically eye makeups, lip glosses, and lipsticks.
I have been figuring out what would be my first post here until I came across What’s in Your Makeup Bag?. The group gave me an idea, so I decided to organize my pouch and take pictures of what’s inside. I try not to bring too much around. These are pretty much what I usually need since the office is only where I often go to anyway.
Inside the pouch
They are — wet wipes, small Tamagotchi tin, 2 lipsticks, lip conditioner, eye mascara, lip gloss, lip balm, 2-in-1 bronze and blush, powder, anti-bacterial hand gel, hair clip, and eye shadows. The Tamagotchi tin contains safety pins, medicines, and earrings. Let’s take a closer look at some.
