Beauty Tag from Angel

     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


BLUSH OR BRONZER 

     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.

LIPGLOSS OR LIPSTICK

     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

LIPBALM OR LIP BUTTER

     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?

MATTE OR SPARKLE EYESHADOWS

     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.

FOUNDATION OR CONCEALER

     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.

     GEL, CREAM, LIQUID OR PENCIL EYELINER

     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 :(

PRODUCTS I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT

     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.

Tagged: I Got Bitten by the Blog Bug

Sunday, September 09, 2012

Yay! I got bitten by the Blog Bug. This is my second tagged post, the first one was from Chay of My Kichay Kit awarding me the Leibster Blog Award and now from Andy of Color My World . The tag was originally created by Nicole of Axons and Dendrites.

Add this photo on your tagged post too! Spread the bites! :)

Ready? Then here it is...


When and Why did you start blogging?

     I started blogging a year ago but I'm already a lurker in this blogosphere from way way back. I love reading product reviews and random posts that time and I don't have any plans writing my own blog. When I've tried and tested some organic products specially soaps and skin care stuffs, I decided to share my experience. I'm a believer of honest reviews that's why when I publish a review, I make sure that I've tried it for a week or a month. I was also persuaded by my hubby to make blogging as a hobby so that I can relax and channel out a lighter side being a stay-at-home-mom that sometime can be very stressful. I was hesitant that time thus my first blog post is titled To blog or not to blog :D

     

What do you love to blog about and why do you like it?


      I love to blog about skin care specially organic ones, budget friendly makeup, hair care, random thoughts on food, fashion and lifestyle. I like sharing my thoughts on products that I've tried and tested through product reviews.


How did you get your blog name?
     Nice question! I know a lot of my readers are very curious about my blog name. Dear Kitty Kittie Kath's name came from three things: Dear- since my blog is like my diary of my personal stuffs it's  like writing a letter or writing my own diary like "dear...", Kitty Kittie- came from Barney's song. During the time that I'm ready to make my own blog post, my son was fond of Barney and Friends series. He's always singing "dear kitty kitty cat, dear kitty kitty". I had a hard time thinking of blog name that night so I decided to just adapt the lyrics of the song and made some changes to the spelling. Kath- this should be the "cat" on  the song and I just changed it to "kath" my nickname.

What do you think is your best post yet?


     I think all my reviews and hauls on Organic Skin Care ^_^


What is your inspiration for blogging at present?
     The bloggers that I follow, my hubby and my son. I'm a soft-spoken and shy type girl with low self-esteem before I started blogging but now I'm turning into someone who can speak out and share her thoughts through blogosphere and in public.

Message for your readers:
     Thank you very much for visiting my site and reading my blog! I really appreciate everyone who dropped by and commented on my reviews and some random stuffs. I didn't expect to have followers specially bloggers that I follow! You're all my inspiration and I hope you also learn from my simple product reviews.

Now, it's my turn to tag lovely bloggers too!
