September favorites


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.

Back to pinks


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:

Can this CoverGirl foundation last in this blasted heat? + MOTD


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.’

Revlon and NYX lippies

I had a makeup buying withdrawal last month (such #firstworldproblems!), so I went to SM’s beauty area to buy a few drugstore lippies. They were also on sale too. 😛

FOTN: Farming and tanking night

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).

FOTD: Sunday hang-out with the brother

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:

FOTD 2012 February 11

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.

Moving on to the point of this post…

Revlon ColorStay Mineral Foundation

Revlon ColorStay Mineral Foundation Medium Deep

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.

Revlon ColorStay Mineral Foundation Medium Deep

“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.

Revlon Beyond Natural in Nude


This is one of the makeups my Mum got me from her latest US trip. I’m ♥in’ it.

Revlon Beyond Natural 001

When she gave this to me, I realized I have more bronzers than blushes. So I’m really happy to have this in my collection.

Revlon Beyond Natural 002

As you can see, in one pan is a blush and bronzer.

Revlon Beyond Natural 003

I use a blemish balm cream (bb cream) which makes me look pale, so having the right blush or bronzer is a must. The Revlon Nude blush and bronzer gives me that natural look that I want.

FOTN: 10th of July Night Look


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.
