Monthly Report: March 2012 Favorites

1 Apr

ok so I’d like to try doing this “monthly favorites” thing which I’m sure you’ve seen already from other bloggers. Wala lang, I just think it’s fun and it’s a way to do mini-reviews of products that are worth mentioning but I can’t with a full post. though I’m still not sure if I can really keep this up since most of the time I use a product until I run out of it but, let’s give it a shot, ‘kay?:)

Beauty Favorites:

1. Maybelline Mineral Power Blush:

forgot to watermark again ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I have the Gentle Pink and Original Rose. They have the most natural finish. I wear them everyday. I switch up the 2 from time to time. The only thing I didn’t like about this (with mineral makeups in general actually) is when I get more than enough product because I feel it’s unhygenic to return the excess to the jar so I just throw it away…that’s waste:(

2. Bath & Body Works body Cream in Orange Sapphire

I just love that it’s in a tube so it’s really handy for travel. I brought this with me when I went to Cebu last January ^_^.ย  It has quite strong tang-y smell so you may not like it if your not into that scent but I like it and so is my friends ^_^

3. K-Palette Real Lasting EyeLiner

If you read my review you know that I didn’t like this that much but a reader suggested to shake it pointing downwards before using so I did and it worked ^_^.But I still feel it cannot do without a primer though.

4. Skinfood Red Orange Makeup Finish

It’s a matte type finish so it’s perfect specially now that summer has officially arrived the Philippine shores ๐Ÿ˜›

5. The Body Shop Seaweed Toner

I also love the daycream but it’s just that I love the toner better ๐Ÿ˜› full review here.

Favorite Snack:

Philippines has been Magnum crazy for a while now and yes, I am infected as well and I’m not even the type to follow trends! It’s really good. I even go for the classic one and that is something since I usually don’t like vanilla ice cream that much (chocolate is the best!). Though I try to limit myself to 1 bar a wk, coz like I mentioned, it’s summer here already and who wld like to see a breathing lard in a bikini???

Favorite Movie:

No surprise because I loved the Percy Jackson books and I do remember liking greek methology when I was little (heck, that’s why I read the Percy Jackson books in the first place^_^) I also saw John Carter, Lorax and Hunger Games. John Carter, it was OK…entertaining. Lorax I highly recommend, for the kids and not kids..great lesson. Hunger Games.. gosh! who didn’t like Hunger Games?? ME! I mean it’s nicely done, I just don’t like the idea of kids killing each other…thats…sad:(

Random Favorite:

my Monster High Doll – Operatta ^_^. I originally like the Draculaura one but it’s not available but it turned out I like Operatta even better since I myself loves music like her. Plus she got this nasty tats and markings on her arm and face. Plus, if I got Draculaura, I’m sure I’ll buy her coffin as well so somehow it saved me money HAHA! you see, I have a tiny collection of creepy dolls so I find her really lovely. I have Begoth and Living Dead dolls as well ^_^

Jam of the Month:

actually I’ve been listening to a lot of Phoenix songs this month. This song I find “too pop” of them but I like it. Chill.

My Foundation Routine

8 Jan

Just sharing how I do my face (full) make up and products I’ve been using lately

yes, this many ๐Ÿ˜›


1. After my skincare routine I prime my face using Skinfood’s Black Egg Pore Primer to lock in the skin care products and also serve as a barrier between my skin and make up.

2. Conceal red pimples and pimple marks with the green concealer from Elf Studio‘s concealer palette using the concealer end of my Suesh back to back brush and Missha for my undereye (and some blemishes too ^_^), using the foundarion end of the brush to spread it out.

3. Dab on foundation using stippling brush from Elf. I love using Revlon Color Stay for full coverage. I’m in shade ‘Sand Beige’.

4. To rid off brush streaks, I spritz my Skinfood Red Orange Makeup Finish on a sponge then dab it on all over my face. This is a matte type skin finish so it helps keep my makeup long lasting. It also gives an airbrushed effect ^_^

5. Finally, I set my makeup by swiping my stippling brush with a foundation twice then lightly swipe it on the T-zone first then use what’s left for the rest of my face. I’m currently loving Maybelline’s Angelfit foundation. I’m in shade ‘Light Ocre’.


6. This one’s optional but for ‘extra glow’ I apply Benefit High Beam on the bridge of my nose, the ‘C’ shape around my eyes and temple and a tiny bit on my cupid’s bow and the area below my lips.

That’s it!

What’s your foundation routine???
