A beauty addict can never have too many palettes!
The stifling heat of summer is finally over in my country. We now have the never ending monsoon rains and tropical storms to deal with next. Which means, the occasional wonky internet connection whenever the weather acts up.
Ooo-kay, moving on. For this product round up, I want to share with you all the products that got much love from me for the months of April, May and June.
Beauty purchases are still on the down low, giving me more time to use what I have.
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. 😉
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
Hello there! How have you been doing on this fine day?
As for me, June has kept my days busy and brought me a medley of new products — MAC was certainly at the forefront with their new releases — and some old ones to play around with. So busy that I wasn’t able to do a product round-up for the month of May. I apologize for that and I hope you’ll forgive me. That said, here are the products I have favored for the past month.
Alba Botanica Good & Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel and Daily Detox Foaming Cleanser (not in the photo). The combination of these two products makes me feel as if summer has never left my country. Their citrus-y scents always makes my skin feel so refreshingly clean. I promised a review of the peel last May but I recently picked up the cleanser so I thought why not just post a review of the two together. This month, I really promise. Send me a message if I don’t deliver okay?
Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation. One never knows the weather we’re going to get in the Philippines. One minute it’s raining and the next, the sun is out. Either way, I’m wet from the downpour or sweating buckets from the heat. It’s this waterproof foundation to the rescue then! Here’s my original review. Continue reading
Everybody, a moment please. I think I just found the best matte, neutral eyeshadow palette. Yes, I think the search is over. It’s totally amazing. I can’t believe something like this does not get as much rave as the other popular brands who have launched neutral palettes.
For so long, I had put up with matte eyeshadows from several palettes I own. Some are actually decent performers but the others were in need of a helping hand, a.k.a an eyeshadow primer. Then I came across Viseart Eyeshadow Palette in Neutral Basic.
You may not have heard of the brand but they are worth the look. Make up artists from around the globe have them in their kit. Who was I to think twice? Continue reading
