wednesday collective haul :P

i was really bored at home and decided to come with my parents to makati. i left them at the manila pavilion and proceeded to the mall.i can't wait for makeup masala's stock for their lipsticks and glossesover the summer, thus, i got three ever bilena matte lipsticks.
i love these lippies.
Firstly, they are really cheap (125.00 pesos only), they do not dry my lips but applying gloss is a must because these are really MATTE, the shades are really pretty!! super!! :D

i also got chifure bi-cake in medium ocre because
i ran out of powder foundation and my flat top brush was broken (i could not use mmu).

i have not tested this yet.
i love the compact!! it's really sleek and most especially the shades suits me!!yey!!
i also got elf duo eyeshadow cream in black licorice and olive.
the colors are really nice and they are really creamy and pigmented.
great for e/s base.

i want to collect all shades!! :D

The Face Shop Span Oil Control Pre Make - up

The Face Shop Span Oil Control Pre Make - up
price: 445.00 pesos

"Formulated with sebum absorbing powder and pore smoothing elastic polymer,
this makeup primer minimizes shine while enhancing the staying power of your foundation."

my very first make up primer. :D
i have never thought of using a primer because i thought people with dry skin can do away with it. errr,, wrong notion.
it's just recently that i felt that the weather seemed to melt my foundation quickly. i was really choosing between monistat or the skin perfecting primer of bare naturals but i hated the hassles of ordering online.
so, i decided to give this one a try after reading good feedback from girltalk.
Tried this today when i went to my sorority's meeting and got our class text booklet (i am the president of the class :S).
It is gel type. The scent is very similar to maxipeel's tinted moisturizer
(it smells good but i am not fond of the scent)
it made my powder stayed longer and i look fresh even after 2 hrs,
however, i could not attest if it controls oilies well.
it also made my skin look smoother.

^the color of the primer is not actually transparent/clear.
it is opaque in color.

btw, i was a bit confused about its price. in girltalk, they said that it was around 375 pesos only then the sa told me it was 595!?! i was astounded and asked the cashier to check the real price which is 445 pesos. ohh i just find it weird.

i got my grades for legal medicine - 86% and epa (election law and public administration) - 93%..
P.S. Thank you LORD.. :D

chyix2 spring contest :D

(click on this to view contest details. :D)

Joining contests is so much fun.
I have the chance to create looks that i would not normally do or thought of doing.
E/s application is new to me.. i am in the process of learning so bare with my pictures and the looks i will create. :D

As emily dickinson says, "there is a little madness in spring."
It is the season of the year where there is fusion of colors.
thus, i created an exuberant look using green, yellow and orange.

4. Apply brown e/s on the inner lid (78 pc. palette coastal scents)

6. Pat on some black colored e/s on the outer and crease to intensify the color (elianto black e/s)

(78 c. palette)
8. Highlight the inner lid with orange e/s and the rest of the brow bone with golden yellow e/s (78 pc. palette from coastal scents)
