La Femme Blush-On Rouge in Rose and Mulberry

Hello gorgeous!

Among my makeup, I think I placed the least importance to my blushes. I'm not saying I don't use them, blush is actually a staple in my makeup routine. What I mean is that... I guess any brand will just do for me since I focus mostly on eye makeup and the lips. So I don't really mind if it's matte, if it's shimmery, if it's powdery (although maybe too chalky may turn me off), or it has a cheap packaging. As long as the color looks nice with the rest of my makeup, then it's good enough for me. Among all the makeup that gives color to the face, I don't have much blushes if you compare it to the amount of eyeshadow palettes and lipstick tubes that I have. It's probably even less than 1/4 of the eyeshadow palettes that I have. Haha! 

But recently, I got interested in buying some blushes from a friend who was selling some. She bought some during one of her travels and decided to sell some here. Anyway, I saw that these blushes have high reviews and my friend swears that they are really good so I was convinced to try them myself.

La Femme Blush-On Rouge 

I have them in Rose and Mulberry.

This blush actually comes in 52 shades. Woah!



Rose is a little more sweet, warm, medium pink color compared to Mulberry.

Mulberry is a cool toned pink, almost plum-ish.

This blushes are crazy pigmented. Here are swatches with one heavy swipe.

Left: Rose
Right: Mulberry

But of course I wouldn't dare wear them like that. I like my blushes very subtle because I tend to wear strong eye makeup or bold lipsticks. Check out the photos below to see how I use them on my cheeks.

Using Rose.

Using Mulberry.


I really like both blushes but while I was checking out the other shades, I just fell in-love with desert rose. I hope I can get my hands on that someday. :O

So what do you think of these blushes? Have you tried them out yet? :)


Cheers,

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania

Hi dears!

I've been loving really dark lipsticks lately and the one I'll be sharing today is something I've been using often. I really like how dark it is but can still be worn casually (at least for my taste), unlike those shades that are almost black or too chocolatey...

So here's the...

 NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Transylvania
I bought it for around P300 at the SM Department store, SM North. But you can purchase this in a more affordable price at some online stores.


I've been a fan of some of the shades of the Soft Matte Lip Cremes. You can check them out here.


But the main reasons why I love this product are that it has great lasting power, the matte finish is beautiful, inexpensive, the scent is very yummy, and application is very easy. :)


It's been a while since I bought another one though (almost three years!). But I just can't ignore this one when I passed by their stall. The color looks black but when I swatched it, it gives a dark, bloody, plum color! Rawr!

This is the applicator

And here's the swatch

Gorgeous, right? I just gotta have it when I swatched it on my hand.


It really looks awesome when applied it's just that it really shows when I have dry lips so better moisturize them first. :D


And that's all for today! I'll be catching up on ZZZZZ's for the rest of the day/night. Haha!

Do you like wearing dark lip colors too?



Cheers,
DAWN

Challenge Accepted—Jergens' 7-Day Challenge

Hello loves!

I'm on a mission. And it will run for the next seven days. Curious to know more? Well I certainly am!!! I just received this package from Jergens last Monday and I can't wait to start!


I was sent a challenge to complete a mission daily for seven days. They will be sending me an email or SMS for that particular day regarding my quest and I will be updating this post everyday regarding the progress of my missions.

But what is inside the Jergens kit? Well, take a look at these beauties.


These items are the tools I'll be using to complete each challenge. Interesting, right? 

It's been a while since I last used Jergens and I can't wait to try them out again and have more beautiful, healthier looking skin!

So tune in tomorrow to see what happens! Get updates regarding my journey by checking this post daily! :D

-----------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 1

RADIATE BEAUTY FROM WITHIN

For your first mission, we want you to radiate beauty from within.  Take a bottle of Jergens from your welcome pack and share it with a complete stranger. Tell us why you chose that person and share with us her reaction when she received your gift, and post a photo of her with her Jergens bottle.

 I was supposed to do this mission yesterday but I was already at work when I received the mission and didn't bring the bottle with me. I had work during the day and a class in the graduate school until 9pm so I got home late already and quite tired because of the long day. So today, I made sure that I have my bottle of Jergens with me so that I can walk by the streets of España and find the person who I can give the product to to brighten up his/her day.

I was thinking of giving the bottle to one of our lady guards but I didn't see one during our lunch break. So I just went out of the campus and saw Ate Carmen. She's one of the vendors we often go to to buy drinks and snacks. I usually bring my baon so I rarely buy food from her but she's really nice. My officemates told me that she even let's them make "utang" or just let them get the food and pay her later. How can you not be a loyal customer? Haha!

Anyway, I think she deserves a nice treat and so I chose her to receive the bottle of Jergens that I have. :D

Ate Carmen with her new bottle of Jergens Age Defying Lotion

I approached Ate Carmen and gave her the product. She was surprised and happy to receive the lotion. I asked if I could take her picture and she was so "game" to pose for the camera. It seems like she was really happy to receive this gift and I also am glad that I am the one who gave it to her. This really gave me a warm feeling inside because I made someone's day happier, especially since the season of giving is right around the corner.

Hope you enjoy your Jergens Lotion, Ate Carmen! And I hope you get that healthier, more beautiful skin! :D


And that makes my first mission COMPLETE! I am so ready to receive my next one!


-----------------------------------------------------------------

MISSION 2

LEFT vs RIGHT

Apply the new Jergens only on your Left arm and leave the right arm bare for the meantime.  Take a photo of both arms, comparing the two and tell us your observations. 


The second mission is pretty easy. I just took my Jergens Daily Moisture Lotion and applied it on my left arm. Below is the picture of how my arms look like.

Left: with the Jergens Daily Moisture Lotion
Right: bare arms

These are my observations after I applied the lotion:
- It smells really GOOD!
- The lotion is thick but once it dries and gets absorbed on skin, it doesn't feel sticky.
- I don't think I suffer from dry skin but after application, my left arm just feels smoother and softer instantly.

And that's ends my mission! Challenge number 2 is complete!!! YATTA!!!
