Ulta haul

hi all!

Are you all ready for Christmas?!!! I so am! And the best thing that happened today is that i received my package from ULTA.
I finally bought the infamous sister of the "Naked" 1 from Urban Decay Cosmetics and i love it! I'm thinking of getting the "baby" of the naked family. lol!
And the best part as well, they also gave me the goodie cosmetic bag and i also used their 20% off. It was a great deal and it was also my first time purchasing from their website. I was amaze how fast my package shipped, it took about a week to be shipped here to Guam.
The sample that i most want to try out, all the goodies came in a red tube bag (?) and there was a lot! I think they were excluded with the coupon but still gave it to me! Thank yous! next time for review~

ipsy glambag for december 2012

hi all! So exciting today... why?? cause i got my very first ipsy glambag!! This is also my very first so called "glambox" or "glambag" subscription.
The infamous hot pink bubble mail envelope.
Inside came with the product information and a justfab catalog w/ my fave. beauty gurus.
And the products!! I love everything but i need to test out the primer first. I think every nyx loose pigments came in different shade, i had baby pink pearl. The gloss is great, i love how it's not sticky and you don't really need to layer a lot because it's so pigmented it leaves a nice tint on your lips.
It's just a nice red lip gloss to top over a red lipstick or just wear it regular. The most item i'm curious about in this glambag is the highlighter by "Maicouture". I'm amazed that when i tried it on my face it worked like a blotting paper as well. It leaves that nice golden glow perfect for the holiday.
Just look at that gorgeous color and sparkle.. i think i would totally buy a full size for this. Overall my first impression for ipsy is so far GOOD! I really thought my item was lost because it took almost 2 weeks for my subscription to arrive, maybe, because it's the holidays and that's totally acceptable. I'm patiently waiting for the January 2013 glambag and hoping it's something great just like this. til next time~

current favorites + the face shop cleansing wipes

My current faves and my daily makeup routine for work! I sometimes put on eyeshadows but i wake up late. lol!

From left to right:
1. skin79 "the oriental gold bb cream"
2. UDPP
3. Missha perfect cover bb cream #23
4. Dior lipglow
5. Bobbi Brown blush in "plum"
4. YSL toche eclat # 4.5
5. Artdeco pen eyeliner
6.  Maybelline false lash
7. Lancome eye definer in "sable"
8. Clinique almost real makeup powder
And don't mind the sample sticker! lol!
i quit bb creams a while back but still keeps coming back since the color of my skin got lighter. My old foundation was a tad darker than my skin color now. Although i do miss my golden caramel tan but i'm liking my lighter skin now since i stop going out in the sun.. ugh! the uv rays!
what i like about this BB cream is that it has also a lip and cheek cream which i find very useful on the go.I also can use the cream for my lips but it sometimes ends up too drying on the lips so watch out for that. I also use the one from Missha #23, I usually switch them whichever i want to use that day.
My life savior! I swear i'm really glad i purchase this item because it does wonders with my face. lol! I really think this makes your face brightened and so photo ready.. i'm in-love with this product except it's price.
This mascara does wonder with my tiny lashes, it has fiber and it is also smudgeproof which is great i love how it makes my lashes long and full.
I love this blush because it just look so natural on my skin and just a tiny sweep is all you need.
This is my first ever eyeliner pen so far so good! I love how the tip is a brush and it glides so smoothly. The staying power is good but not that great cause it still smudge. Anyways all are great products just decided to let these goodies shine because i haven't done any reviews lately. So, a good quick review on these great awesome everyday makeup!
Anyways, ta-da! i've been using this for a quite a while now and i love how refreshing this is. It does the job removing excess makeup and whatnot but the waterproof mascara or such are a little bit difficult to remove with this. As always the scent from the face shop is always that cool and rejuvenating kind of smell (i'm sure i;m not alone on this one right?) it's so refreshing. I just love using this after the long day at work and just want to remove the makeup. Anyways, till next time~

MOTD: smokey eyes and pinks lips

Hi everyone! So i decided to do a little look from the Bobbi Brown palette...
the items used for the look minus the BB cream.. Bobbi soho chic palette, Bobbi plum shade blush, YSL highlight/concealer, lancome eyebrow pencil, artdeco pen eyeliner, mac lipstick and lipglass.
i used the three bottom rows of the palette..
I'm not really use to doing smokey or dark shadows eyes because i'm more of natural kind of makeup/look. In this case i think the shades from the palette are really gorgeous and it wasn't difficult to apply at all. It was also my first time trying out YSl touche eclat and i'm telling ya, i think it makes a really good concealer and highlighter at the same time.. it makes your pics looks good too! til next time!
