urban decay book of shadows 3


Getting my hands on a box of urban decay book of shadows 3 got me really excited. It was the first time moi will have a book of shadows. Lol! I’ve always wanted one but since its always sold out, all I can do is drool over ate jhengs palette. Was a very deprived girl until the day of my Sephora trip..BOS3 all you want! Hehe.:)  Its funny though, I can still see a lot of bos3 i love nyc palette in the market. If only they had the same amount for the other book of shadows before, maybe I'll be one happy (but poor) girl with all the book of palettes!:)

Lipstick Love! MAC Angel


To be honest, about 75% of my lip collections are pink lipsticks..20% are those colours I use for gigs wherein the person I’m doing makeup for is better with peach/earthy shades (majority are) and the remaining 5% are those popular shades you just have to get no matter what..teehee.    Though the percentage suggests getting other shades, I can’t help but buy and look for the best pinks!  And of course, I wouldn’t pass the chance of getting mac angel. I totally forgot to get it when I was in the US but luckily I got it at duty free Philippines.   Don’t try your luck at the local rustan’s mac stores, they just don’t have it.

An update on my lola


People would expect me to write about my trip escapades after a long absence but it will not be the case this time .The day I got back from my US trip, my lola passed away (Just yesterday). It was shocking news as she was better and healthier before I left.  Regretting the possibility that I could have stayed just a day or two more to be with her or comfort my mom there. A lot has been bothering me but then came to realize that my lola just wanted the better for me. I left US feeling blessed with all the experiences I had. Literally, this has been my most fulfilling trip ever.  My lola just wanted my trip to stay as it is..up to the end she made sure I got back in the Philippines feeling happy.  My lola loves me more than I can imagine.  It’s a tough break but I know its for the best. She will be in a better place and will be with my tita riza. Thanks to all who’s been there for me, the prayers and comfort I got in this troubled time. I appreciate it all.  I love you Lola.

Sugarpill Cosmetics Pressed Eyeshadow Palettes (Pic Heavy)


I just had to get them. The little pretty palettes from Sugarpill are something I’ve been longing to have ever since I’ve seen swatches from Temptalia and her high rating on the products. I’m not sure what kept me from buying these things (uhh, maybe because you’re not an eyeshadow user and the more they are bright in-your-face eyeshadows?).. I mean how long it took me to decide, they’re just so pretty! Nevertheless, I have them now *evil laugh* and I can’t wait for the day I’ll wear them..hopefully!

Off to US


I've been pretty busy since last week cuz of work(IT), another work (makeup artist) and papers (passport &visa) but thankfully it all worked out ok. I'll be off to US tonight and just excited as ever.  Excited to see my lola who's in the hospital right now (main purpose of our visit) and to spend time with my US based relatives for my bday. (just an added perk.hehe..:D)  But part of me is a little stressed on the idea... because it was a rush unprepared trip --should be dad's trip only with me just listing pabilis/ note for  all of my addiction (aka makeup) orders, but n00oo I'm going too. It only means more spending for me cuz I will actually be the one to go and be trapped at my heavenly places (MAC, MUFE, Sephora), really hard to control myself when my addictions are within my its really negative cash and worn out CCs! Gaah! But well..this is just again an added perk..i should be happy and just enjoy! Can't wait!  And will also mean more time for me to blog.:)

Sunsilk Co-Creations Range


Girls are unstable when it comes to beauty products. I for example, even though I can say that a certain beauty product worked for me, I’m still up for trying different brands.  I mean I have no control over my fickle mind and just want to grab everything I can for the promise of a better me, yes even if I still have stocks of tubes/pots used for the same purpose. Maybe it’s just me who buys a lot with no -aholic. :P But you know the feeling that after you get through a pot /tube/container you want to try something else..guys are not like that.

The Body Shop Color Me Spring Event


The Body Shop conducted an event last Feb 26, 2010 to showcase the Spring Trend Makeup for 2010. I decided not to miss this event as I really want to try their makeup line plus my girls who I’ve not seen for a long time will be there. I tried TBS skin care and makeup products before but I find them average so I seldom visit the store whenever I’m in a mall. Held at Glorietta 3 Makati, it gave opportunity to all beauty bloggers to interact with each other while doing their fave thing: putting on makeup! The activity “Create Your Spring Look using The Body Shop Nature's Colours Collection!” showed the creativity of each participant including me as each created a spring look.  I had fun as I was able to use their products and what do you know, I totally love them.

playing around with makeup: aka fresh madeup look


When the beautynomist announced her contest for minute maid fresh look, I already had something in mind. Long before this, I browsed the net for makeup ideas and fell in love with one conveying “fresh” was perfect. Though I wasn’t able to submit an entry for the contest –blame it on the busy sched, I like to share with you guys what I had in mind. With a few tweaks here and there, it came out nice but not my idea of fresh.  Its still fun though!

Inside My Kikay Kit: Charm Luxe Retractable Kabuki


When I was in college, my friends made fun of my bag and what’s inside it (Came from a school of mostly guys). They often call it “The Big Kikay/Vanity Bag” and it’s true I can’t fit my makeup items in a normal size makeup bag so I use my whole bag. The only school related things inside it are a pen and a piece of paper and that is if I remember to bring those items. Lol. I recall bringing a lot of makeups plus 3 long handled brushes. Funny reminiscing those days. Right now, my kikay kit is 3x smaller than what I’m used to before. I now bring only the things I actually need cuz I found the perfect items for my kikay kit. One of it is the Charm Luxe Retractable Kabuki brush.

Beauty finds from Saizen


Saizen (Daiso in Japan) is a popular Japanese store known by many beauty addicts for the much raved charcoal mask. Don’t confuse yourself with other Japanese stores such as Daiso and Japan Home Center because they are not the same, something I have learned after a few visits from the stores mentioned. Saizen is the largest Japanese store I have seen offering more products and far different from what the other Japanese stores offer.  All items are priced at 85 pesos ($1.75 - $2) no matter of the size/weight. First time I went to the place, I got excited and quickly looked for the Beauty section and spent most of the time there - I tell you its not easy to find. Most of the items are low-priced with great quality but I found some (really few small items) that should cost a lot cheaper. Maybe they could have made it 2 for 88 pesos, you think?   But considering everything else in the store, its nothing. I could have gotten more stuffs that day but time didn't allow it so I just walked away with the following beauty finds:

coastalscents 28 neutral palette: a neutral look


I didn’t like the coastal scents 28 neutral palette before thanks to my “expensive-makeups-are-better” mentality and how its powdery but browsing around some blogs made me wonder. It’s not actually the 28 neutral palette I saw for their eotd application but the 88 coastalscents warm palette.  If this product can show up pigmented and beautifully on pictures maybe the 28 neutral palette can achieve the same thing - excluding of course the idea that the bloggers are just skilled, hehe. Yes, I opened again my dust collecting palette and played around. With the right eye base, the eye shadows of the 28 neutral palette does a job well done.
