Make Up For Ever Professional Powder Blush in n°88 Cotton Candy

Hello loves!

I like using pale blushes so when I found this particular blush on sale, I grabbed it!

Make Up For Ever Professional Powder Blush in n°88 Cotton Candy


It's like the perfect soft, light pink! I like wearing a dramatic winged liner and a bold lipstick so I tend to balance the look by applying little or pale blush.


I'm not sure if this blush is phased-out already because i can't seem to find it in the website, but it's still available in the online store Beautylish.


Anyway, I'm just gonna post the swatch for reference. ;)




The swatch is just beautiful. And I love that the blush is not powdery.
It's the blush that I always bring when I travel along with a light peach one. 

What do you think of the Make Up For Ever Professional Powder Blush in n°88 Cotton Candy?

Maybelline ColorSensational Creamy Matte Brown Nude Lipstick in Daringly Nude

Hello dearies!

I found a matte lipstick that can mute your lips to emphasize a dramatic smokey eye! Check out the...

Maybelline ColorSensational Creamy Matte Brown Nude Lipstick inin Daringly Nude


I was able to get it for only PhP 199.00 from its original price of PhP 299.00 when they were on sale at BeautyMNL. I bought three actually. The other two are Clay Crush and Burgundy Blush. Haha!


I always think that one should always have a nude lippie in one's makeup stash. This one from Maybelline is a good addition to mine. The color is a bit brighter and lighter than what I'm used to, but it looks pretty good, especially if I want more emphasis to my eyes.


It's like a mixture of light brown and peach and it's pretty close to the lightness of my skin so it is a good nude shade for me.


I also love that it's matte! I'm a big fan of matte lipsticks.


Check out the swatch below:


I like the consistency of this matte lipstick because it's creamy enough to glide easily on my lips. It doesn't make my lips chappy too. Staying power is pretty okay, but reapplication is necessary after eating or drinking.


So what do you think of the Maybelline ColorSensational Creamy Matte Brown Nude Lipstick inin Daringly Nude?

The Body Shop: Wildest Christmas for the Wildest Campaign!

Good evening ladies,

Yesterday, The Body Shop Philippines introduced their WILDEST CHRISTMAS with the their WILDEST CAMPAIGN at SM Mall Of Asia.


A wild jungle out-camp was set up near the entrance of the mall filled with their latest holiday collection offers. As customary of TBS, during the holidays they release limited edition products that remind which are reminiscent of the season. This year was a bit of a surprise since their recurring scents have gotten an upgrade.


Three new line were released mainly:

Frosted Berries


This is the update on my holiday favorite, Cranberry Joy. The scent is a lighter, and sweeter than Cranberry Joy. Personally, I prefer the scent of Cranberry Joy, something about it makes me feel a little bit more mature whereas this new scent reminds me of teen years.


Spiced Apple


I love the apple fragrances and the blend of the scent of this just had me grinning from ear to ear. It's not the usual apple scent that I am used to but the combination warming combination of the cinnamon and the ever so slight hint of orange just imparts such a refreshing feeling that it got me at the first sniff. :)


Vanilla Chai


The warming scent of vanilla is just a holiday staple for many reasons and I would have been more surprised if it did not make any appearance this year. There is so little you can do to add more appeal to vanilla; it is such an addictive scent that even as an additive in other products, people would prefer buying products harboring the scent.


The day also officially kicked off their holiday offers for all their customers but most especially to their loyal Love Your Body Members, as well as SM Advantage Card holders.


There are the usual holiday gift bundles which you can get with great discounts,


other discounted favorites, which we take full advantage of, and member-exclusive offers like:


I know the matte lipstick and liquid matte were released a few weeks prior but it was my first time seeing and trying them for myself. I just had to share my swatches and excitement.

Liquid Matte is originally worth Php 495 but for LYB and SM Advantage card holders, you can get them at a discounted price of Php 350. The collection consists of 11 shades.

Testers

Swatch (arranged according to tester order)



They are quite silky and smooth. They glide easily over the lips. They are quite pigmented but the color will not start out super pigmented (so no need to shy away from the darker colored ones). It does not feel as dry though it is quite matte when it settles. I will still have to buy and give it a go to compare it with the dark matte lip stain I have now.

But if you're a little scared of the vibrancy of the color, or simply not a stain or gloss type person, they also have the lipstick matte on a Php 200 discount. The lipsticks cost Php 795 but if you present your LYB or SM Advantage card, you will get a Php 200 off.



The color is build-able and seems easier to control than the previous one.

There are many other LYB and SM Advantage Card holder exclusive offers especially around the make-up stations. Visit a TBS branch near your area or any Watsons inside SM Department stores to find out all their member exclusive deals.

And of course, they also introduced their latest campaign effort: protection of the rainforests.



Unfortunately, I was late during the event so I missed out on a lot of other things that happened during the launch, but Emily was kind enough to still fill me in on the details even though they were busy with the clean up. Thank you so much.

They gave me my personalized body butter.


I'm super excited to give these things a try - especially the body butter :).


I was happy to have visited The Body Shop again and to attend another of their event, even though I was late. Anyway, I hope this has gotten you psyched up for a visit to their stores. Holiday deals are always one of the best, especially deals from TBS.

Let us know what you thought about the launch and their new campaign as well as the three limited edition scents this holiday!

Cheers,
LIZ

Creer Beaute Moon Romance Moon Stick Liquid Eyeliner

Hello loves!

There are perks when you have friends who go out of the country for vacations, and some of them are getting pasalubong (gifts from their trip) or you can ask them to buy some stuff for you that aren't available locally. The latter was what happened to this particular product. I asked my friend to buy me this super adorable eyeliner...

Creer Beaute Moon Romance Moon Stick Liquid Eyeliner


...But what was supposed to be an item that I wanted to pay for became a gift. She gave it to me as a present! (Thanks, Tin!)

I requested a Sailormoon eyeliner just because it's SAILORMOON! I used to watch the anime when I was a kid. :D


* MOON PRISM POWER, MAKEUP! *
(cue Sailormoon music)


I wanted to provide the product info but it's all kanji. I also checked the website but it's also in kanji and the translation doesn't make sense. Haha!

What I can understand is that it's worth 1,600 yen, exclusive of tax. It's a gentle yet long-lasting eyeliner with a fine brush applicator that's easy to remove with warm water.



The cap is different from the eyeliner's cap. As seen on the photo above, you can add the "Sailormoon staff" cap or you can completely remove it if you would rather have a slimmer, non-bulky liner in your kikay kit.


The brush applicator indeed is fine and creates fine lines too. It's easy to manipulate so creating the perfect cat eyes is not so hard anymore.


The blackness of the product is okay and it dries pretty quickly when applied. The thing I don't really like is that it sorta looks shiny... like a bit rubberized.


Here's how it looks when I use it.

I think it's pretty good! Other than the rubberized-shiny look, it's great! It can stay all day without smudging even when I sweat and get oily. Well, I do get the occasional smudge when my lids get super oily, but that's very rare. My eyes were on fleek during my three-day vacation in Singapore. No smudging even though I was walking around the country under the sun! 

So yeah, to summarize my thoughts on this eyeliner, I really like it! Not only does it have the design from one of my favorite childhood shows, it also performs greatly as an eyeliner. It's not perfect but I still consider it as one of the good ones I've tried. ;)

Have you tried the Creer Beaute Moon Romance Moon Stick Liquid Eyeliner? Which design do you have? Do you also liked watching Sailormoon growing up?


Cheers,
DAWN
