All Made Up #2: That Pop of Purple

 I miss blogging. A LOT. My absence can be traced to work and mismanaged time. I was never a fan of schedules nor planning and now that I am in my 20's time management suddenly became a necessity. My gulay!! Just why am I learning this just now? Did you know that I have loads of new to things to share on my blog but along the way my physical body would just give up. Yes. I would choose sleep over blogging. Ohh This never happened before. #signsofaging haha

Moving on to my post, I wore this look at the Shiseido Spring Summer Event last last week. I have been wearing neutrals a lot for the past months. Yes, i got boring and boring with my makeup. Again, I believe that this is one of the #signsofaging. haha So, I decided to look extra colorful that day at least with the eyes. So, instead of using the usual black/brown liner, I use a purple liner on the upper lash line down to the lower lash line. That's double trouble and  the purple just looked good on my dark eyes.

Here is the complete look

 I curled my hair because it looked so frizzy and dry. :(
Thanks to Cynos Argan Oil for giving the illusion of healthy hair in the picture. It does give my hair that much needed shine because it became so brittle after my bleaching experience last year.
 Here are the list of the products I used:
1. PIXI Flawless Beauty Primer
2.  Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Tawny
3. Ellana HD Primer
4. Ellana Intensive Blend Foundation in Hazelnut Latte
4. MAC Melba Blush
5. NYX Matte Bronzer in Deep
6. Tony Moly Slim Mascara
7. In2it Eyebrow Quad
8. Glory of New York Eyeliner in Misty Mauve 
9. To intensify the purple liner, I top it off with Wet N Wild Purple Shadow from the Petal Pusher Palette
10. For tightlining, I use Makeup Factory Retractable Black Pencil
11. Makeup Factory Eyeshadow Base
12. PIXI Brow Gel in Medium Brown
13. PIXI eye bright liner
14. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
15. AVON 8in1 Eyeshadow Palette in The Metallics
16. Iris Lip Liner in Rose

I want to give a spotlight on two products on the list.
     First is the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue. Honestly speaking when I got this, I was not loving the color. It looks so damn neutral. It goes on like a warm peachy brown on the skin when swatched. I thought of the shades my mom and lola use for their go to lipstick and this color resembles their picks. I do not have plans of even using it because it looks so BLLLAAHHH!! But hold your horses my fellow beauty addicts, this shade is a gem. It looks like the most flattering neutral/brownish color in the market without making me look years beyond my age! Compared to the old formula of Revlon Color Balms, this does not leave a stain on the lips (particularly this shade).
             Next is the Avon 8in1 Eyeshadow Palette in The Metallics. The colors look promising. Anything with burgundy actually excites me. Yes, I am stuck in the fall/winter mood. The colors are buildable but it does not retain the original shade on the pan once blended on the skin. I swear I deposited a lot of that Burgundy shade on my lid but it turned into a taupey brown shade. These shadows have a decent texture but be wary of fall outs. The light pink color and brown are the best. :)

Btw, I was chosen by Shiseido's Ishibashi Momoko to model for the event. Dangg, they remove my makeup which took me an hour or so to apply hahaha. Oh well, Momosan commended my skin, she said I have a nice skin. Coming from a Japanese Beauty Consultant, I should be super duper happy right?

Godbless everyone!

  1. when i saw the revlon swatch on your wrist, i immediately scrolled back up to look at your lips... haha... got confused for a while... :D this is why we should never trust/rely on skin swatches... the way lip products actually look on the lips is usually very different from how they looked swatched somewhere else... and oo nga... looking at the photos, your skin looks very flawless... especially sa 3rd photo... :D

  2. such a beautiful eyeshadow palette! wish we have it here in Indonesia!

  3. Your so beautiful! I love all the types and colors of your eye shadows.
