Natalia Vodianova | Chloë Grace Moretz

7 Nov

I was watching pixiwoo‘s makeup tutorial.

Is it me or Natalia Vodianova and Chloë Grace Moretz could pass for sisters?

I love pixiwoo’s tutorials. I’m planning to enroll in makeup classes early next year. I’m still not sure where though.

Weekend Stash

31 Oct

We had our Sunday lunch in Serendra and turns out they had Halloween activities for kids (more on that later). We needed at least Php 500 purchase each in Serendra and Bonifacio High Street to join their respective activities. Thus giving me a reason to buy something lol

This was what I came home with last night from The Face Shop.

L-R Clockwise: Herb Day Cleansing Foam – Purifying Lemon, Lovely ME:EX Auto Eyebrow in 04, Herb Day Cleansing Tissue

I honestly can’t remember how much each is. The Cleansing Foam was Php 300++, the Auto Eyebrow was Php 200++, and the Cleansing Tissue was Php 95. I’ll put up a review of these as soon as I can.

Lovely ME:EX BB Cream

24 Oct

There’s a lot of fuss about BB creams nowadays so I decided to see what it’s all about. BB or blemish balm cream is said to be the secret of Korean actresses. Notice how natural looking their makeup always is?

 

The Face Shop's Lovely ME:EX BB Cream

I honestly can’t remember how much I got this for in The Face Shop in Bonifacio High Street, but I’m pretty sure it’s not more than PHP1,000.

This is how the product looks like

How it looks when applied

Pros:

  • It has a very lightweight feel. Feels like you’re only wearing a moisturizer.
  • Sheer coverage. Good enough to lighten the under eye circles, but not completely cover it.
  • Non-greasy feel. The cream feels like powder after it has dried on your face.
  • Long lasting. Unless you’re staying under the sun for a long time and really, really be perspiring, one application before leaving the house would last you the whole day.
  • Easy on the pocket.
Cons
  • One shade only.  May not be suitable for medium to dark skin.
  • Has a flowery scent  to it. Not for those who like fragrance-free products, like me.
Over-all, it was a very good product. Am I going to buy another tube again? Probably, unless I find another BB cream that is fragrance-free lol
