Swatch Day Sunday Vol.7: Get Your Pink On, The Blush Edition

Pink blushes2

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I’m sure you’re all aware of that.

As a doctor, even before I went into Dermatology, I’ve encountered a fair number of patients diagnosed with Breast Cancer — terminally ill, first time diagnosed or survivors.

In support, I’ll be showing you swatches of my pink blushes. Ladies, get ready. Continue reading

Best of My 2014 Product Round Up

The past year has been amazing. I met people online and offline who are just as addicted to makeup as I am. I, the girl behind her glasses, am extremely thankful to everyone who has taken their time to visit my little corner on the web, liked my posts and commented.

Now, what beauty blog would this be if I don’t list down the most amazing finds I have discovered in 2014? So sit back, relax, grab a cup of tea or hot cocoa, perhaps some biscuits too if you want. Here they are, the best of the best products, in my opinion at least. 😉

Best of 2014 face products

Primer:

When long hours at work are inevitable and I have to plunge my head on multiple tasks/errands and deadlines, I only trust the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (review) to make my makeup last until late into the night. Or when, you know, there’s no time to reapply my makeup for after-work dinner and drinks. In second place is the Purely Cosmetics Oil Absorb Powder (review). Sometimes, I add a little dusting of it if I feel I’m going to be exposed to a more humid environment. It does help in keeping the oilies away for a few more hours. Continue reading

October 2014 Product Round-up

October 2014 Product Roundup

It’s that time of the month again. Before I forget, here’s my most loved products for the month of October.

Givenchy Le Rouge Rose Plumetis. I already reviewed one of the two lipsticks Givenchy released for Fall but I actually bought the two shades available in Sephora. Of the two, I feel this one is more work appropriate so I’ve been wearing it on most days. I haven’t written about this one yet but I will. I promise.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. I believe I described this as “… magic in a bottle” when I reviewed it here. I’m hoping this will last me for a long time given that I only have a sample of it.

Look: Copper Eyes and Coral Lips For A Concert

Copper Eyes Coral Lips Look products

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

August 2014 Product Round-up

August 2014 Products

I can’t believe August has just ended more than a week ago. The -ber months are already here!

And to tell you the truth, I don’t have much beauty products to share with you that I haven’t shared before except for a few new items I added to my routine. I was mostly splurging on skincare if you must know. But really, once I find a good beauty product, I stick to it religiously… until a better alternative comes along. For the month of August, here are the few most notable products I had been reaching for almost everyday.

Snoe Beauty Hair Heroes Extreme Curl Defining Hair Creme. Between the two styling products I bought last month, I prefer this locally made styling cream to the other one. I like its scent and the non-sticky feeling of the cream but it’s certainly not without some flaws. I’m gathering my thoughts as I type this down so wait for my review. Continue reading
