Insta recap!

Wow! where did our week go?

I guess it’s time to do a quick recap of what I’ve shared on my Instagram and Twitter!

MONDAY

Monday Basics! Showed some love to this Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. I’ve had this for quite sometime now and they still looked unused. I love how pigmented this palette is and the shade is just perfect for everyday use. I’ve been using the shades VENUS, NAKED2 and FAINT. This palette is perfect for newbies and pros too!

TUESDAY

This Sephora blush in CORAL CRUSH is amazing! This shade is just great for my skin complexion and I love the hint of shimmer on this product as it serves as a highlighter too. The shimmer effect is not overwhelming and because it’s very pigmented, you don’t have to apply a ton on your cheeks. What I noticed about this product is that, the longer it stays on your skin the better it looks.

WEDNESDAY

Lipstick Wednesday! Here’s my lip combo last week, and since it’s Wednesday then we gotta have some Pink right? But before I apply anything on my lips, I had to apply my Holy Grail Carmex Original Lip Balm to moisturize those lips. I then applied L’ORÉAL Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick in She’s so Matte then paired with NYX COSMETICS Retractable Lip Liner in Nude Pink. These lip products are super pigmented, non-drying and long lasting too with an awesome result on your lips.

THURSDAY

Still loving UD Naked Basics palette and for my lashes I was wearing MAYBELLINE Pumped Up! Colossal Volum’Express Glam Black then brought out my old friend from MAC Cosmetics in PINCH ME to give these cheeks some glow and finished the look with my new favorite lipstick from RIMMEL LONDON The Only One Lipstick in You’re All Mine.

FRIDAY

Both items are sample sizes from IPSY ‘s Glam Bags. tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer  and tarte Smooth Operato Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder are both amazing and it’s definitely worth the hype!

And that’s it! If you want to see more of my fun activities, please don’t hesitate to follow me on Instagram and on Twitter.

Insta recap!

thumb_Untitled_1024

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and to those who got hit by the snow storm, I hope you all are safe and warm.

I thought I’d do a quick recap on what I shared on my Instagram and Twitter accounts. If you get the chance and wants to see what I’m up to when I’m not blogging, go ahead and follow me and give me a “haller” and I will follow back!

Now let’s get started.

Monday

This was my Monday morning companion. I’ve been trying to use some of my old makeup so they won’t go to waste. This is Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm Balm in the shade DEMURE (105). I love the “minty” feel on this balm and is definitely hydrating. You can use this all by itself or use it on top of you favorite lipstick as a lip shiner.

Tuesday

While there’s a beautiful thin sheet of snow on the ground, I thought I’d take a quick snap on the mother of all my purses. This Celine Micro purse was given to me by my hubby on our wedding anniversary few years back and I rarely use this so it won’t get damaged. This can carry a lot of things but I don’t recommend using this when you’re wandering around for a long period of time as it tends to get really heavy on the arm. 

 Wednesday

On Wednesday’s we got to have some Pink! Another re-discovery of yours truly and I used to have quite a few of these Rimmel London Show Off Lip Lacquer but I gave some to my sister back home since they don’t have Rimmel London products there yet. (in case you’re wondering where is home? it’s in the Phlippines). This is in the shade NOVA (102).

Thursday

IMG_6849
One of my very few high end products if I must say. This is the Dior Addict High Shine in 260. Aside from the very elegant packaging, the product is also SUPER Hydrating. I never regret having this lip product in my collection.

Friday

IMG_6858
Eye Shadow Friday! I almost forgot I have this MAC eyeshadow in RICEPAPER Frost. This shadow is very smooth, super pigmented and can be used just by itself or as a base and mix with other shade of you choice. (Of course it’s from MAC, then it better be great right?)

And that’s it.

Bonus: Of course this post won’t be complete without a quick OOTD.. isn’t it? 🤗

May Favorites!

Where did the month of May go? I’m sure you’ve asked the same exact question right? Anyway, the good thing is that summer is here and May Favorites is now happening so stay tuned!

I have been very minimal last month, in other words (LAZY) haha. This might not be a very interesting post but hey! this products got me through the entire month with a smile. 🙂

Now, let’s get started.

  • 2015-08-6--18-52-10Simple Cleansing Micellar Water – At first I didn’t like it but the longer I used it, I started loving it. It cleanse really well and the best part is, it doesn’t break me out.
  • Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer – Surprise Surprise!!! What else can I say about this moisturizer?? hhmmppp.. THE BEST! ❤
  • Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation (oil free perfecting creme repairs skin with vitamin C complex, licorice root and pea extract. – I found this product in the “isle of doom” at Sephora as I was looking for a product that will help eliminate or reduce this pimple scar on my face. I’m not 100% sure if it did help but I noticed a difference on the spots so I thought to just continue using them. I just got the sample size because I was worried that it might irritate my skin, gladly this creme is very gentle and I like it. 🙂
  • Glam Glow Youthmud (Tinglexfoliate Treatment) – My Savior, a Must Have, Holy Grail. This product played a huge part on my face. Because of this, I stopped getting “sparkles”, the moment I can feel that a pimple is popping-up I dab a small amount on the spot and leave it overnight. The next morning, the monster is gone! I am so glad I found this Glam Glow Youthmud. I got the sample size again just to try it out and it lasted me for months since I don’t use this on my entire face. THIS PRODUCT IS A MIRACLE!

2015-08-6--18-57-51

  • Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – you guys know what this is.. 🙂
  • MAC “BlushBaby” Sheertone Blush – This is a re-discovered product and I have been loving it ever since we met again.
  •  Maybelline “Fit Me” Pressed Powder – I’m killing this pressed powder to death. I love how it kept me shine-free all throughout the day and very very lightweight too which is good.
  • Maybelline “Fit Me” Concealer – This concealer is great in covering some unwanted scars/spots on my face. I love how it feels on my skin and most importantly, it doesn’t break me out.
  • 2015-08-6--19-01-44NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Milan – This shade is good for everyday wear, it’s matte, non-drying, smells really good (yummy) and can be worn during the day or even at night.
  • Covergirl Clump Crusher by lashblast Mascara – Another item that I’ve been reaching a lot for this past month. It’s really a clump crusher, though it’s not volumizing but they do keep the curl. It’s another product that is good for everyday wear but I don’t recommend this for night time or if you are going for a glam look.
  • Carmex Original Lip Balm – Please note that as long as you follow my posts, you will forever see this lip balm. You all know that this is another item that I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT.

Let me squeeze a non-beauty item in this post. This two items below have been my go-to footwear since Spring arrived. They are just so comfortable, easy to wear and can be paired with anything. I’ve had this items for over a year now and they still look great. The sandals are from NY&Co. while the “loafers” are from Nine West. They both have a hint of gold on them as I love gold so much. You will see me wearing these babies a lot for sure.

2015-08-6--19-02-54The End! ❤
