I have this Thing for Makeup

August 24, 2016




Hi Dearies!!!
I am really losing myself lately. I am soo broke for like the entire year of my life. I am solely dependent on my husband now being just a stay-at-home mom. I miss my damn paycheck!

Well, truth be told I am an addict to beauty. I am easily drawn to pretty things which I don't know why. I started this blog with barely little knowledge on makeup before. I even thought to myself that what a waste of money that would have been if my hobby. But look I am still buying this freaking lipsticks. 

I am officially posting this to just tell you that I am slowly getting back to my medications. I am definitely coming back for more reviews especially with my affordable drugstore finds. I am a makeup addict on a budget so hopefully you will learn more from me. *winks!*

For now, let me sort some of my makeup tools and brushes as we go along this journey. 

Love you all and thanks for reading this post.
I can't wait to share some of the looks I will be able to create in the future.

Much Love!!!

My First Beauty Box Purchase

October 22, 2015


This BDJ box that I got last year, this is super late already a year after that I posted it here on the blog. I know right?? Well, this is the only BDJ box that I purchased from them and so far I loved my first purchase. Skin savers was their theme for that month. =) I love skin care products!

shameless FOTD + Current Skincare

June 4, 2014


hi momsies! pardon for this shameless post. 
i missed blogging about my current skin care, i brought two products yesterday for me to try out, 
really i think i deserve this self love due to the fact that i haven't had enough sleep.

i needed a break. 
and some skin care routine for my haggard face.

i have with me now the clean and clear compact powder, i love that it is only 170 pesos. 
for olay it is roughly 190 pesos.
i think this would get me a long way. wouldn't be bad to try this out and see what effect it has on
my oily face. =)

my current products to try out: OLAY face lotion and Clean and Clear Oil Control Powder


the sponge is a plus for me 

closer look

and of course, the face using these two products:

LOTD (Lipstick of the Day): Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Love That Red

May 23, 2013









I have been using Ever Bilena Lipsticks for a month now. The matte lipsticks have really got me hooked since the day I heard the matte lipstick line.

Ever since I got into the world of beauty blogging, I wanted to try out some really good products out there in the market. I am in search for affordable ones but one that does not put it off quality wise.


i love matte lipsticks, if you haven’t noticed i am into matte lipsticks lately since i have oily skin and putting it on does not add on the shine i have on my face. Lol :-D .
good thing i found ever bilena in love that red. it is the my go to lippie for those stressful days and moments in the office.
here is a closer look at the product:



what i like:
  • affordable (for only 155 pesos)
  • good color pay off for a matte lipstick (really red)
  • easy to apply and glide on the lips
what i don’t like:
  • packaging (aesthetically wise not so girly looking) :-D
  • dries off easily :-(
  • does not last long you may need to reapply
  • blots, stains on my coffee mug used in the office
My over all rating: 3 out 5
so far i am loving this lipstick. it transforms my look with just one application without being too quirky. =)
you may grab one at the stores near you or you may visit Ever Bilena on facebook and like their facebook page for their product updates and promos.
how about you? have you tried this lipstick too?
do leave your comments. :-)
♥lots,

Day 9 - A picture of your make up Collection

May 15, 2013

It's been a long time since this challenge have gone over me.. =)

I know I was not able to keep up with the 30 day challenge (make up) on my blog due to long hours of work plus the time I have to keep up with my beloved son Adi.




He is growing up so fast, that being not able to see him most of the time is killing me.

I work 9.6 hours that 48 hours in a week and it is a struggle to keep a blog, a job and also take care of my son. But that part is what makes me feel that I am a super mom. I guess?!! It's never an easy job but the most rewarding of all.

I guess I might as well proceed with the post. Enough of the mommy rants, I'd rather post a separate one for that too. You know, i love my son so much and I miss him ALL THE TIME.

For you who have or might have been interested to see my makeup collection, scroll down below. =)
Most of them I got from AVON


                            these are some of my eyeshadows and eyeliners, eye primer, blending brush, etc. i got the palette from chic cosmetics. so far, the colors are good but some of the colors are chalky =(
.
my makeup collection!. all sorts of them =) i actually love eye shadows. and lipsticks. I am also on the look out for the perfect foundation that is why i haven't got hold of them yet. that liquid foundation I got from AVON. I'll do a review on that soon. I have been using it for a month now and so far I am loving it!

that's it for me.
hope you enjoyed reading!

Ciao!


Challenge: DAY 8 - Fave Daytime Look

March 11, 2013

Hi!!

How are you doing? Today, I am posting for Day 8 of my 30 Day Makeup Challenge.
My favorite day time look is the Natural Look, which is what most of the ladies should be sporting.
We know that we don't want to look very clownish when it comes to putting on makeup.

We should feel comfortable about how we look and somehow flaunt our natural beauty and facial features.
Want to achieve that Natural Look?



Here is a video from Julianne Kaye of Maybelline New York:

Day 6 - Are you into False eyelashes?

February 8, 2013

Hi Good Day to all my readers!

How's your day been?

Today I will be posting Day 6 of my 30 day Makeup Challenge.

ANSWER:

I have been viewing a lot of make up tutorials in you tube in the likes of noe of colorismyweapon, ana patricia and a whole lot more...

For me false eyelashes are essential to achieve those striking eyes but I don't deem it to be a necessity for everyday use.

Practically speaking, I don't use it for the purpose of beauty but because I work in the office and most of the time I spend facing the computer.

But I would love to try those too, I would prefer the natural hair ones since it would look like my lashes and not so overdo my everyday look. =)




DAY 7 - Fave Eyeshadow Color Palette

January 31, 2013

Hi how are you doing today?

My question for the challenge is a tough one since I am an eye makeup type of girl.
I love colors especially on the eyes and perhaps for me the eye is the most catching feature a woman has and accentuating it with the perfect shades of shadows would be unkaboggable! (cannot be outwon).

I have tried  various eye shadows as well from cosmetic brands like AVON, Ever Bilena, Colors Cosmetics (Colour Collection from Tupperware Brands) and also some China made products in the market.

Day 5 - What is your favorite lip product?

January 20, 2013

Hello!

Thanks again for dropping by into my blog. It's Sinulog once again here in Cebu and I am just so sad that I myself could not make it into joining this year's Grand Mardi Gras. It is already my second year in a row since last year I just got pregnant with my first baby boy A.

So today, I will be appreciating the TV programs just as always have been. Off to blogging now, since Baby A's sound asleep.

My fifth day of the 30 day make up challenge, and today I will be answering the question, what is my favorite lip product.

Answer:

As of the moment, my favorite lip product are the ones from LA Girl , you can read my review on that HERE .
I also love the Lipsticks from AVON, lately I have been raving about their Ultra moisture rich lipsticks in Rose, I hope to do a review soon.
The products I want to try out in the near coming days are the products from MAC and the Matte Lipsticks from NYX.

That's it for me now!
Thanks for reading and keep you posted on my challenge as well as my latest hauls.

Day 4 - Do you like wearing foundation?

January 17, 2013

HI Lovelies!

How is your day today? I hope everything in your life is going smoothly.

Today I will be answering the 4th question for the 30 day makeup challenge.

You might wanna read my recent post: Miss Cebu 2013 Winners

ANSWER:

I don't usually wear foundation daily to work. I allow my skin/face to breathe from all the chemicals on my face. I usually just dab on my powder from Johnsons and Johnsons to get that fresh and oil free look on my face. However, early in the morning I do apply a facial cream/moisturizer from AVON you might want to read my post HERE.

I do wear BB creams the ones I used were from Maybelline but I eventually stopped using it since it increases the oiliness in my face. I am on the look out for that perfect Matte Foundation in the market.
I am a fan of concealers as well. They help hide my blemishes.

That's it for me now.

How about you? What products of foundation do you wear?
Leave your comments. I would love to hear from you.

Ciao!

Day 3 - Favorite Brand of Makeup?

January 14, 2013

Hi!

Great Monday to everyone!
I am now off to my third day of the 30 day Makeup Challenge.

I am still a new beauty blogger and from then I haven't used so many beauty products.
The ones which I opt to purchase are the products from AVON.

You might wanna read: Last December Make up Haul
They are of high quality and really suit the Asian skin and the kind of weather we have in the Philippines.

As of the moment. I am loving The face shop blusher and the eyeliner from PALLADIO.
I am still not at the stable point of saying or choosing my favorite yet since I personally haven't tried much of those high end make up products as of the moment but hoping to eventually try soon.

For my skin care, I am loving OLAY and MAXIPEEL.
I also use AVON skin care products such such the Rose Hip toner and cleanser as well as their moisturizer.

The make up brand which I am hooking to try for this year are REVLON, MAC and MAYBELLINE.

That is it for me now. Till Then!


XO,

Day 2 - How did you learn to put on makeup?

January 11, 2013

Hi!

Down to Day 2 of my challenge and the question above how did I learn to put on makeup?

Well, I guess I have had shared my take on when I started putting make up on my face.
I cannot really remember the exact date that I was able to put make up on my face I just started with some lipgloss and face powder and that was just about it.


I think, my girl cousins first introduced my entire teenage days to make up =).
They were a bit older than me so I got the chance to see how they applied those make up on their pretty faces.

When I started college there I came around applying some lipstick and mascara from time to time.
I think that is about it.

How about you? How did learn about putting on makeup?
Do Share.

till then!

Ciao,

DAY 1: When did you start putting on makeup?



Hi!

I am doing this challenge and today will be my first and second day. The questions are all listed here .
As you may all know if you have read my post HERE, I am doing this as a tag post. 
So, you might want to check out this blog for updates on this make up challenge that I am doing.


As far as I can remember, my first encounter with make up was when I was still 5 years old.  well, my aunt used to place makeup on my face and dress me up like I was some sort of a doll.. back at school, I was a dancer, and you know the trick to fancy our already pretty faces , are but a dub of powder, lipstick and blush-ons... I just love looking pretty, if I was really. From that time I was a teenager I got myself quite comfortable wearing just lipgloss and a little powder on my face. I started wearing makeup occasionally when I reached college.

That's it for now.
HAVE a NICE DAY!!!
