Arabic Paradiso Look

Arabic Paradiso Look

Hi guys,, this is my entry for Shar's Arabic contest. I was thinking of recreating misschievous' look for this contest but I thought of doing my own version of arabic makeup instead. I do not have any studs or anything fancy to add to my makeup. I think it would look better (don't you?) Anyways, I think I did a good contouring my flat nose.. haha.. I used the giovi eyeshadow palette, flasies and the nyx goddess of the night golden pink lipgloss that cheysser gave me. I really love them..

Shar's Arabic contest

Theme:
Create an Arabic Style Inspired Makeup. From what I noticed, when I google 'Arabic Style Makeup', They usually have flawless, porcelain-like skin, and really bright colors on the eyes yet it still looks smokey because of the heavy eyeliner on both the lashline and lower lashline.

think half of it is on the pink shade.. :S I am afraid to try nude/neutral/brown colors because i always end up looking sickly.. LOL). I also ordered from makeupmasala c/o Thiamere.. love you dear.. And a primer from Etsy which Thiamere also featured on her blog (I forgot the name.. hihi) and I am planning to buy new stuffs from ELF studioline.

I love ellie and carl's love story.. ) and bf and I got to talk things out. I am really praying everything will be fine.

Still ALIVE



Hi everyone.
Yes, I am still alive although not in the mood of updating my blog. This month is really stressful. (ateh jing you know this story but there's more..)

My series of unfortunate events with divine intervention:
  • We are engaged in the transport business. We provide car rental services (trucks or van..) to commercial agencies or production (the one who does commercial ads on TV). We recently hired a driver who has been applying to us years before. This driver turned out to be a professional carnapper.. this was his modus operandi!! tsk tsk.. the policemen in our place help us track that crook. i went with my parents in searching for our car and catching that bad guy!! i felt like i was in a reality tv show!! and thank god,, we got our car back and that so-called driver turned carnapper is now in jail.. tsk tsk

  • I was riding the jeepney once and i was really irritated with the guy beside me. I noticed his hands were underneath his backpack (i thought he was masturbating!!! no joke, because i had numerous encounters with guys doing this one!!! YUCK!) anyways, I was really staring at him and suddenly i realized that he was a thief trying to open the bag of the girl on his other side. When i got down, the girl beside him also got down the jeepney and i noticed her bag was ripped. I instantaneously notified her about it and she was really scared but we both thank GOD nothing was taken!! (she has two cellphones!)

  • Last week was my preliminary exams.. I was crying on the bus on my way home because i have an inkling i failed that subject. I was busy texting my friends about my dilemma. When the bus was nearing my street, I slid my cellphone in the pocket of my bag. I started walking inside the bus but the guys who were standing were obstructing my way. I did not mind them at all because I was really devastated with my exams. When I got home.. POOF my cellphone is gone. :S

  • BF and I are in a VERY COMPLICATED STATUS. Is love enough to keep a relationship going?

  • I think I failed my examinations. I am really depressed. I have been crying myself to sleep. I don't know what to do. I really do not know what's gonna happen. I study hard to the point of depriving myself of sleep and time for myself and for my loved ones. I really want to finish my law studies without any failing mark. :C I really hate this feeling. I feel so incompetent. :C
I will try to do a decent update soon. :C

Review: Missha BB Cream and Missha BB Boomer

Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream
Blemish Balm, also call BB Cream, is known to have been formulated as an after-treatment cream to help patients who have gone through laser skin surgery to soothe and regenerate the skin. The M Perfect Cover BB Cream gives an even and natural-looking coverage with the soothing, moisturising properties of a cream. It is suitable for all skin types including acne-prone skin, and can be used as a makeup base or foundation.

Whitening + Anti-Wrinkle + UV Protection (SPF 42 PA+++)
Ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Cetyl PEF/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Zinc Oxide, Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butylene Glycol, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Arbutin, Magnesium Aluminium Silicate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Hydrolysed Collagen, Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Squalane, Caviar Extract, Adenosine, Algae Extract, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Fagus Sylvatica Bud Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ceramide 3, Chamomila Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Fragrance (Parfum), Triethanolamine, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Benzyl Salicylate, Hydroxycitronellal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Citronellol. MAY CONTAIN [+/-; Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)]



These are the prizes I got from Naomi's purple contest. I have been aching to try Missha BB Perfect Cover BB cream because of the good reviews and raves about this product. Initially, I have high hopes about this product because of its name "prefect cover". My initial use of this product made me wonder where did it get its name "perfect cover"? I have to pile on as much of the product to get my desired coverage and it still gives me a light to medium coverage. Here are some things that I love about Missh M Perfect Cover BB cream: Blendable, Light to medium coverage, Dewy Effect/Look and it Never broke me out. Another plus factor is its high spf 42. It also evens out my skin tone very well therefore making it a good makeup base. Other bbr creams that i have tried gives me that ugly white cast when taking pictures but this one just gave me that "glow" and nothing ghostly effect or anything. **One thing I realized about this product is that it oxidizes. It turns really dark after application.**
Missha BB Boomer
BB Primer which boosts the adherence and duration of BB Cream and makes your skin look brighter with its pink pearl powder when applied before BB Cream.

  • Whitening + Wrinkle repairing
  • Containing moringa, patent ingredient, mannan and olive ingredients which have an affinity with skin, it keeps moisture on the skin and creates moisture shield, leaving it moisturized after makeup.
  • Containing adenosine and arbutin, it improves skin tone and fine lines.


The name BB Boomer itself made me so curious with this product. Boomer?? At the back of my head, I thought this would do something different when used with bb cream. It is a primer. I use this before applying bb cream or any liquid foundation. I find this good but nothing spectacular. However, Missha bb boomer is way better than the face shop's span primer. I have dry skin and normally I would not notice if a primer made my powder or foundation stay put... but Missha bb boomer gives a beautiful iridiscent sheen when applied alone but when I layer it with powder that sheen is lessened or more often than not it becomes unnoticeable. It does keep my bb cream, foundation and powder stay put. To those girls who resides in the Philippines, I have a good alternative for you. Avon Fresh Radiance Makeup base gives the same glow. See picture for reference:



I could hardly even tell the difference between them. The only visible difference is that Missha BB boomer is thicker in consistency.


My before (NO MAKEUP) and after (WITH MISSHA Perfect COver BB CREAM AND BB BBOMER) look. As I said, I have dry skin and using Missha BB boomer and Perfect Cover BB cream gave me that dewy look. 

But, it did not actually cover my pimple marks very well.
