EOTD: Virginia Olsen Forest and Spring Eye shadows

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

     Hi dearies! Before I start this post, I want to let you know that this is my first EOTD or Eye of the Day post. I'm nervous because if you're a long time reader of this blog prolly you know that I don't wear eyeshadows. I'm sure you've seen selfies on my Instagram account and photos from the events that I've attended before where you'll see my eyelids naked. I really don't wear eyeshadows because I don't know how to mix and match colors or how to blend it properly. I guess, I'm really not into eyeshadows but because I love Virginia Olsen and I want you to brave yourself in trying green shadows here's my eotd using Forest and Spring. Both are wearable green eyeshadows and can also be used at night. Please pardon my photos, if you wanna laugh and say negative comments I'm okay with that. After the post, you'll see a rafflecopter app which means there's a giveaway from Dear Kitty Kittie Kath and Virginia Olsen. So without further ado, here's the look that I made using Virginia Olsen eye shadows Forest and Spring. Click CONTINUE READING and join the giveaway :)

Happy Mother's Day to all Moms!!!

Saturday, May 11, 2013

     To all the loving, caring, understanding, supportive and patient mothers in the whole world, let me greet you a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!! I know this day will be very special if you'll celebrate it with the whole family. 

     I know my mom doesn't visit my blog, she haven't got a chance to visit this site even once but I understand that. If ever she's reading right now, I want to tell her that I'm very thankful for everything she did to us. She sacrificed most of her time just to give all the best that she can for us (me and my sibs) to have a better life. My thank you is not enough to show that I'm grateful for all the things you've done. May God always bless you with good health, long life, more patience and unconditional love for the whole family.

     I also want to say "Thank you" to my second mom, my mother-in-law for loving me as her own daughter. I hope you'll stay strong physically, mentally and emotionally and may God always guide you wherever you are and keep you safe in whatever you do. 

     Happy Mother's day to all my mommy relatives and mommy friends, mommies and mommies-to-be, you know who you are!

     I also want to say "Thank you" to my Virginia Olsen Minerals family for sending this fab gift. I'm not expecting this that's why when I received this yesterday, I'm a bit emotional not because finally I can try this product but the thought that someone not related to you (by blood) will remember you on this special day. Actually this is my first time to receive something from someone on not related to me on Mother's Day. 

     Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart! Have a happy and meaningful Mother's day to all!!!

Good Times!~

Beauty Tag from Angel

Friday, January 25, 2013

     Two weeks ago, Angela of Angelamhiere's Little Heaven tagged me in her post Beauty Tag from Erika. My apologies if it took me so long to share my beauty basics. I've been contemplating if I'll answer the questions straight-forward or will share what I really have since there's only few makeups on my stash. I love the simple/day/no makeup look that's why you'll seldom see me with eyeshadows even during events. So most that you'll see here are my HG's.  I will just give a brief details on each item or category. You can click on the captions below the photo to see my full review :D


     I'm a cheektint girl during my college years. I can't leave the house without staining my cheeks with this kind of blush. But as years passed by and with some reason (when my fave cheek tint from Mistine got discontinued) I just lost my passion for cheek tints. Two years ago I've tried to rekindle my love for cheek tints that's why I grabbed the opportunity when I bought this pre-loved tint from Benefit online. 

     My HG blush of the moment is Skinfood Rose Cheek Chalk in Rose Peach. I also have another blush and it's a mineral blush from Virginia Olsen. I haven't tried it though and will test it one of this day and see if I'll be fine with mineral blush on my cheeks.

     Since I'm a late makeup bloomer, my first love was lipgloss. I love how light and girly glosses can be. But when I started lurking here in the blogosphere, I discovered so many kinds of lipsticks and my eyes were mesmerized by the colors specially pink ones. These two babies are my current faves, actually they're three but my grandmother saw me sporting Rogue Deluxe in Just Peachy from SNOE and she really liked the color so I just gave it to here since I can buy that from Snoe anytime. Loving these cool toned pink lippies from MAC and N.Y.X

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa


     Lipbalm baby! Handy, moisturising and fun since almost all the flavors smells very nice and some can be delicious too :D My current fave: Carmex (who doesn't love Carmex?) and EOS- my first organic lipbalm. Cute shape eh?

     If you're a long time reader of this blog, I presume you know that I rarely put eyeshadows. I can count the days where I colored my eyelids and it's not me who did the eyemakeup. These eyeshadows below came from giveaway prizes and Virginia Olsen Minerals Holiday Collection Launch loot bag. So I can't answer the question based on my fave but If I were to choose, I'd choose the sparkle one because I love the fantasy effect when I tried it on the eyes.

     Powder foundation and BB cream. I use bb creams as base and powder foundation to set the bb cream. I've tried so many bb creams before, most of them were sample sachets. Never got a full-sized one and the one I considered as full sized was a pre-loved one pa. The Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover is soooo love! I already hit the pan and will buy a refill this coming February. I'm glad that there's 4U2 dreamgirl Lovelight BB powder to save the day. This became the substitute of my favorite powder foundation when I was on a tight budget.

     I'm fine with liquid eyeliner but I always make a mistake on creating thin and thick lines because of my weird eyelids. I also like cream and gel liners because of the pigmentation it gives whenever I'm using it. But these two are my current faves. Virginia Olsen for a more dramatic look- can be used as an eyeshadow too while the San San Eyeliner Pen for days when I'm lazy putting makeup on my face.

     Since I'm using bb cream I use my fingers to apply it. I also use my fingers to apply the Skinfood Rose Cheek Chalk or the sponge that comes with it. This landmark kabuki brush for my powder foundation. Another brush from Landmark- Artist Studio for my eyeliner and Marrionaud duo brush for my eyebrows. This Virginia Olsen Minerals eyeshadow brush came from the loot that we took home after the Fantasy Holiday Collection launch. Still unused :(

     And now my stash is getting bigger because two new products that I'm road-testing can be a HG material. The Tony Moly 7 Day Tattoo Eyebrow and Nichido Mineral Concealer Stick that I'm using as eyeliner for my waterlines. Will update you once I considered them my HG and will make a review soonest. I'm also road testing this bb cream from Skin79- it's the Oriental bb cream but I'm having a hard time using this.
