Maybelline ColorInk

by , in

Eyeshadow colors can enhance the beauty of our eyes, depending on how we use it, today I'll be sharing to you about this product Maybelline ColorInk in Beige.


 This is the product looks like, I like the packaging which is made of glass.




This is what's inside, as you can see on my swatches it's shimmery cream type eye shadow, at first when I saw this, I told myself that this eyeshadow would be great as an eyeshadow base, so excited to try it, I had 3 attempts using it, but I'm not satisfied with the result, I used my bare fingers to apply it on my eye lid, but the product is just too concentrated and will not glide easily as I blend it, so a lot of patches on my eyeshadow, maybe I'm not using it properly, so I tried to combine it with an eyeshadow cream which is lighter and more creamier than the Colorink and it works, I can easily blend it using my hands, but my adventure of experiment doesn't end. I decided to film and use the Eeshadow on my latest video which is the Christmas Makeup look, I decided to use a small concealer brush and before dipping the brush, I sprayed it with a moisture spray, and wow, I really love the result. From then on, I love using the product as my eyeshadow base and an eyeshadow ofcourse, what I love on it is, it can make the color of your eyeshadow pop even more.

Here's my video:



Hope you enjoy reading and watching my video.

Till next time, Merry Christmas and Advance Happy and Prosperous New Year

5 Tips to Boost Your Immunity during the Holidays

by , in

Hectic schedules, parties, sleepless nights, a lot of preparations, rush shopping and many more. Are you ready for this Christmas? you should be because this is the merriest season of all, but we also need to be careful of free radicals and stress, so today I'll be sharing to you five tips on how you can stay strong and healthy despite the holiday stress.
  
01.   Drink a lot of fluids, you should keep yourselves hydrated. Our body is composed of about 60% of body fluids and every system of our body depends on water. So water is important for healthy glowing skin, hair and nails, as well as controlling body temperature, heart rate and blood pressure.
                                                      
02. Take care of your skin, remember cleanliness is next to Godliness, so eating healthy and nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables can help us maintain, sustain and clean our body inside and out.



03. Exercise daily to be able to maintain physically fit, even during our hectic schedules we need to discipline ourselves to give time for exercising especially on this season, as we all know Christmas entails party and everything will boils down to foods, especially dessert and fatty foods. Burning that fats away will be a great help.                                 

04. Don't forget to take your multivitamin with iron, there's a tendency that we will not be able to sleep well, because of a lot of preparations, I know you can relate, so many things to do but the time is really fast so you end up having sleepless nights. Taking Multivitamin with Iron is a must because iron  has an important role in producing red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to transport it throughout the body. If you don't have enough iron, your body can't make enough healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells.


05. Lastly boost your immunity by taking vitamin C. It serves as your body shield while nourishing your body, taking multivitamin with Iron together with Vitamin C is a great combo as well, because Vitamin C can help the absorption of iron in your stomach. Vitamin C is also one of our great defense from free radicals and one of the trusted Vitamin C which is Alkaline based is sodium ascorbate FERN-C, this is an immune system booster and a potent anti-oxidant because it can be easily absorbed by the body and stays longer for about 12 to 14 hours and non irritant to stomach, so it performs its best and absorbed by the body by 95%, compared to ascorbic acid which has an acidic nature only 25% will be absorbed due to its acidic nature which can also irritate your stomach to know more about Fern C and to stay updated follow their Facebook, Instagram and twitter account. 

Stay healthy and strong this season!!!!!!!!!!

Merry Christmas everyone, share the love!!!!!!!!

Best regards,

Revlon Colorstay Review

by , in

Hello Everyone, welcome back, today I will be sharing with you my review about this beautiful drugstore foundation it's REVLON as you can see in the title.


 

 This foundation that I have is under 240 Medium Beige 


Product details:
  • Makeup feels comfortable & wears up to 24 hours
  • Medium to full coverage
  • Flawless look, lightweight feel
Long wearing coverage with a lightweight formula that won't cake, fade, or rub off.  With Time Release Technology specifically formulated for combination or oily skin to control oil absorption and shine.  Your look stays flawless throughout the day. 

product ingredients: 

Cyclopentasiloxane, Aqua/Water/Eau (Water), Dimethicone, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, PEG-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Tribehenin, Nylon 12, Cymbidium Grandiflorum Flower (Orchid) Extract, Lactobacillus/Eriodictyon Californicum Ferment Extract, Lilium Candidum (White Lily) Bulb Extract (Lily), Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Flower Extract (Mallow), Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Bisabolol (L-Alpha), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Tocopherol, Alcohol Denat., Alumina, Dimethicone/PEG 10/15 Crosspolymer, Methicone, Laureth-7, Magnesium Sulfate, Silica, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Ethylene Brassylate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Dimethicone/Silsesquioxane Copolymer, PEG-12 Glyceryl Dimyristate, Salicylic Acid, Silk Powder, Sodium Citrate, Dipropylene Glycol, Phenoxylethanol, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, May Contain (+/-):, Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Zinc Oxide (CI 77947)






Now, what I like on this product:

Light weight
Full coverage
reduces blemishes and spots
It gives me a flawless effect on my face
Easy to blend using any foundation brush and sponge, but for me, I like to blend it using F80 kabuki brush from Sigma.

Would I purchase again?
Yes

My first impression

It stays on my face maximum 10 hours, without using any primer and without any retouch. Maybe if I used primer it will prolong the prevention of  the oil to appear on my face, but I decided not to do so, just to check if the foundation will really stay longer.

To prolong the foundation you can use primer prior to application.
Retouch using oil absorbing powder or any setting powder.
Use blotting paper especially on T-zone
You can also use tissue to absorb the oil on your face if you forgot your blotting paper.

If you want to see how it performs on my oily face, you can check my video on my Youtube channel

Another Makeup Gig

by , in


Hello everyone! blessings to all of us, I hope you have a fruitful day, I'm very happy and blessed to share these awesome people from UK, my latest clients last October 22, 2015, because I attended my friends wedding Chris and Jen, what an awesome couple. They also requested me to teach their first dance, and I'm happy co'z it turns out victorious, we practice abut 3 hours 2 days before the wedding and 15 minutes together with all the cast 15 minutes on the wedding day itself, hahaha!!! but everything went well, so going back with my clients  they are the family of the groom.  I have taken pictures.

         Sorry I wasn't able to take the before picture, instead I have the hairstyle and the Final look.

I don't know what to do with her hair and praise God it ended up like this, tell me in the comment section below if you like the hairstyle.

                                     Before                                                                 After

 So her hair is too short, so I decided to curl it a little and and simple up do. 
They are all beautiful already, so what I did is just a little enhancement.  By the way I used Revlon foundation on both of them, under the shade 240, the one that I mentioned in my previous blog.

I'm making a separate post for it, so keep posted, let me know if you like the look and the hairstyle. Thank you and Godbless,

Beauty Haul 002

by , in

Hi everyone, another beautiful, blissful day and new discoveries.
How are you doing lately? well for me, it's been a busy week lately,  but I'm here again, I'll be sharing to all of you and I'm happy to tell you that next week another blessing is approaching and this products below are my must haves for the said gig, I'm so excited, but anyway as of the moment, here's the picture of the products I purchased lately.



Revlon color stay  240 in Medium Beige (P825.00)
Maybelline Color Ink Beige  color (P379.00)
Maybelline Hypergloss Liquid Liner (P199.00)
Maybelline Rocket Mascara (P399.00)
Everbelina White Liner (P99.00)

To be honest I was really planning to buy Maybelline Fit me Foundation but it is still not available in the Philippines I think, oh sorry you can buy it by the way, online, but on Watsons or Maybelline booth, the product is not available. I hope they will make it available in the Philippines, Ive read a lot of reviews and mostly bloggers and youtubers said, it can really compete the quality and coverage of Mac Studio Fix Foundation, that's why I want to buy one, and I landed on buying Revlon, I will do a separate review on this foundation. Regarding with the Color Ink from Maybelline, the first thing that came in my mind, was I needed a nice base for eyeshadow, so that's why I opted to buy one. I also bought the Hypergloss Liquid Liner because unfortunately the FS pen liner that I have already said goodbye, I just use it for 1 week and a half, it dries up easily, I like the FS liner because it's very easy to use but I wasn't expecting it's lifespan, so I went back to my liquid liner. I also bought The Mascara because I'm running out of Mascara, and I don't want to end up in the middle of my gig, having no mascara to use at all, so it's better to prepare ahead and lastly the white pencil liner, seriously this is the main reason why I went to SM just to find a nice white liner, but the product that I want to buy is not available. so I don't have much time to waste as you all know I'm a full-time mom and I need to limit my time going outside because as of the moment we don't have baby sitter, so blessing in disguise that my husband has a mid shift, so I can do a little shopping time, back with the liner so far I've check all of the cosmetics booth but so far this eye liner is very nice compared to the rest.

I will be posting my review and first impression on these products soon, so keep posted.
Thanks for reading. How about you? what's your latest beauty haul? share your idea below.


Best regards,

Universal Laptop Charger

by , in

     Hello good day everyone, again I would like to share this useful thing that I've got lately. This started when I woke up last Oct. 2, 2015, realizing that my Laptop is out of battery and when I charged it, Bam!!! it will not charged anymore, and on that specific day, I have an important thing to do on my laptop, so I hurried to the store which I know that sells products at a low price with good quality, but they told me that as of the moment, they don't have the stocks, so I was thinking what will I do, so I tried to go to the other store near it, and inquire, they told me that they have stock but it will cost P1300.00, as I was thinking of buying it or not, I visit another store, but they said that the specific charger that I want cost P3,000.00, wow!!! but it's too much for me, but the lady told me to visit a specific repair center, because she said that they can fix my charger. So I give it  a try, finally I found the repair center after a 15 minute walk, they examined the charger and told me they need to open it by using hacksaw, HUHUHU!!! so I said yes, if it will fix it, I waited for 2 hours but unfortunately they said they cannot fix it. Praise God! the electrician called one of their suppliers if they have universal charger in stock, so they other line said, yes they have! so happy me!!!!!!!!!!!. I rushed and grabbed the opportunity, then I got my UNIVERSAL CHARGER, here it is


 There's eight plug in socket





It was a good buy, because, you an adjust the output voltage to 12V, 15V, 16V, 18V, 19V, 20V and 24V.  and the price was P485.00. It really works and I was so happy and thankful, even though I met a lot of trials along the way, but the only thing is, I always told myself by that time, in every step,  I know this will result in victory in Jesus name.

I 'm really thankful to God because He really guides me to the right place and never abandon me. of course He will never do that because He loves us so much. 

Just sharing, have a blessed day!!!!!

I also ordered Cafe breve 4g (P255.00), latex sponge (P25.00),  blending brush (P280.00) at Ellana cosmetics,  but my order did not make it on time, I ordered it last Aug 28, 2015 but I received the item last September 9, 2015, too long huh! just imagined yourself what will you feel if your on my shoe. LBC said that they cannot locate my location but last September 7 I did received a package from  LBC but it's not from Ellana Cosmetics, so what does it mean? anyway I received the products and I was not able to use it on my gig, but anyway I will be able to use it on my next gig.  Here's the thing, the brush that I order was not in the box, they send a wrong product, of course I informed them, then they said that they will send another one with the right specs and it will be for free. It just make my day! Thank you Ellana. For the record I really love their products. By the way Ellana Mineral cosmetics cost me P690.00 inclusive with shipping.



This is the Fanny Serrano Pencil liner,, it's very easy to apply, this product dries up quickly and it's water proof. So far so good. 

That's it for now.

Simple Bridal Make up

by , in

Hello to all! I'm here again to share with you my latest gig, for the past few weeks I'm a little bit busy with something and I will be posting it here soon, but as of now I'm so excited to share with you "The simple bridal make up" that I did last Sept. 02, 2015. My friend ask me if I can do her make up in her wedding day, so I said yes to it, because it's an opportunity to practice my skills. So here's a quick look. 


So as a preparation, after cleaning her face, I applied moisturizer as usual, hydrate your skin always before applying any make up, let it set for 3-5 minutes.
1. Primer (loreal)
2. Atti BB cream
3. Atomy Mineral Compact Powder
4. Brow(Nichido) all time favorite! (I really wanted to try the etude brow pencil but sad to say, I ordered online and Sept. 2 came but still no show! huh!, so I have to use the Nichido in brown but it turns out very nice.
5. Eyeshadow
6. Eye Liner (on this make up I use the FS pen eyeliner which I bought for P199.00) Which I really like because its very easy to apply, it's waterproof and it doesn't smudge.
7. Mascara from Maybelline you can check my review here.
8. As you can see I placed a false eye lashes because my friend don't have much lashes, so instead of just applying mascara I layered her lashes with false eyelashes ( brand name was apple I think I bought it for P125.00). 
9. Bronzer for the jaw line, below the cheek bone, forehead and don't forget the nose line. "wink"
10. Blush on , from Ellana Minerals.
11. Lip liner and lipstick.

Oh by the way I forgot to mention I did apply cream highlighter and I used sponge(which I bought for P164.00) as an applicator, I bought it from Fanbo, so far it's good to use, and it does what it says, I never thought fanbo has this sponge blender but they do, you can check on Fanbo displays. It's very cute, The one that I have is pink! girly huh! seriously it's very cute. 

So that's it for now, if you have suggestions, questions, please feel free to comment below.

Have a happy day! Godbless
