Hello, lovelies! We are finally doing monthly favorites. This has been a long time coming. 🙂
Joiz’s September Favorites
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Seduction
The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor range is one of the good liquid lipsticks in the drugstore imo. No surprise that Joiz likes it as well, specifically Seduction that she uses for her everyday or work makeup look.
It all started with the The Body Shop’s Dusty Rose Lip and Cheek Stain. There’s nothing like having natural-looking pink flushed cheeks to brighten my face and make me look more awake (especially during long hours at work!). Then when I was persuaded to stay for a night in Shangri-La Fort because it was already late when I got done with gym, I only had my mascara, powder, concealer, and Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain Honey to use. My face looked flat and pale, but the Balm Stain really gave my face the ‘life’ it needed. My liking for pinks have rekindled. 🙂
Since my birth monththis month started, I switched up my makeup with more pinks–Mostly lippies that are great for either day or evening looks. I haven’t thoroughly checked my collection, but these are my picks so far:
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.’
In spite the exhaustion from yesterday morning’s inspection all over Makati, I still pushed through farming and tanking with other *insert game here* players. I can’t disclose yet what game it is until I blog about it. 😀 Anyway, I wanted to personally meet the mucho friendly people who welcomed me to their group.
I did a dark eye makeup since I would be meeting them late night plus I feel like doing dark eye makeup more often (or as long as I’m not going to the office).
My brother was bored last Sunday, so he invited me to go to the mall with him. Because I was so busy with online stuff I wanted to get done as well as work out, I was left with little time to prepare. Here’s a look I came up with:
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.
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.
Jan and I had a window-shopping trip at Greenhills last Saturday. I actually had to pick up a toy there, but most of our time was spent on window-shopping… For laptops. Hrhr~ XD;
I had no idea what look to for that night. I thought I’d just experiment with the Ammo palette. I was tired of neutrals too being that’s my everyday/office-look. I decided to re-try Urban Decay’s Last Call because the first time was fail.
