When I first saw the blush shades available in Catrice Cosmetics at the Mall Of Asia, I honestly wanted to get one of each. I think there were 5 in all.
Except I made a promise that I would only pick one shade to try and see how good it is. If all goes well and it passed my standards then I’ll go back for more.
Now let me share with you my thoughts regarding their blush.
Last month was mostly about me and my skin. Nothing much about makeup that particularly stood out. I do have some items for reviews in the upcoming days.
Yves Roches Jardins de Monde Brazilian Coffee Beans Shower Cream. This smells deliciously like a chocolate-coffee drink. I love using it every time I hop in the shower. I seriously want to go back to Yves Rocher for more. You can read my review here.
Yves Rocher Hydra Specific White Contour Regard Eye Care. This eye cream was included with the shower cream I bought last month. I don’t know if they have discontinued this product or not but it’s not in any of the websites of Yves Rocher in any country. And, everything from the Hydra Specific White range was being sold at 50% off. To review or not to review, that’s the question.
Etude House Collagen Moistfull Essence. My mom actually gave this to me after she found it too sticky for daytime use. I told her to apply it before bedtime instead but she just gave up on it. I’m the one who’s using it, at night mostly but sometimes during the day too when I’m at home and I don’t have to go out.
Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfect Concealer. Last month was ‘breakout season’. Maybe because I was more stressed than usual but I’ve got comedones, angry pimples and post-acne marks dotting my chin, forehead and cheeks. My family and friends have all noticed! I’ve been bringing this concealer in my kit to cover them up. My review can be found here.
Nivea Creme. Amping up my skincare just a bit, I added this cream to my night routine after reading this article saying how Nivea can rival and best even the most expensive moisturizer.
Etude House Play 101 Pencils.Out of all the shades I bought from Etude House, #8 and #50 have been a part of my makeup routine as an eyeshadow base and eyeliner, respectively. See the other shades I have here.
Catrice Absolute Eye Colour. I was finally able to visit Catrice Cosmetics in SM MOA. I got a couple of items including this eyeshadow called My First Copperware Party. It’s become my go-to eyeshadow for several days now. Already featured it in my first FOTD I posted here.
About a week ago, John Legend returned to the Philippines for his 2nd concert in the country as part of his “All Of Me” tour.
I’m just going to share the products I used that night. You’ll have to forgive me, I’m terribly unoriginal and too lazy to think of a specific look so I decided to just go with what usually works. The venue was sure to be dark. Retouching would have been an impossible feat and if ever I had gone out differently, no one will appreciate it — not even the singer I had dressed up for. Lastly, it was just me and a couple of girlfriends. All our attention was focused on John and his voice anyway. Continue reading
