A [ super ] Mini - Online Haul

I know, I know! It has been forever since the last time I posted here in my blog. I really am sorry for the lack of posts and delayed "giveaway" winner announcements and all that. But I will really make it up to you guys after all these crazy days. :)

Now, I just want to share a mini, as in super mini haul. :D And I bought these babies from Stuff in Style. ♥

Stuff in Style is an online shop that sells makeups, baby stuffs and a lot lot more. They offer products from popular brands in the US. Brands that are not that easy to find here in our country.

They have Aveeno, Baby and Moms stuffs and a lot more products that are not beauty related. They have makeups and beauty products from drugstore to high end brands. Sigma, Urban Decay, MAC, Revlon and a lot lot LOT more. 
And they do sell these in a very reasonable price. :)

So, last Thursday there was this Multiply Frenzy that went on for an hour. 
Multiply Frenzy is basically something like a "SALE." Last Thursday's Multiply Frenzy was for beauty products.  It was 500 pesos off for a minimum of Php 1500.00 from the shops Multiply chose.It was such a steal, right?! 

I planned on getting a Real Techniques brushes and some other random things. But then as I was waiting for the frenzy. I thought why not get these 2 instead. ♥

The package came this morning while I was taking a bath. 
I was really excited to open it up. 

After opening it, this is what I saw. 
It was wrapped neatly and safely inside a plastic with bubble wraps. 
you can also see there a paper that contains Stuff in Style's logo and the brands they offer. 

And these are the things I got. ♥

Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush
Php 1050.00
FINALLY! The brush that I have been wanting to try out. :) 
Even just the softness and the density of it made me fell in love with it already. 

MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel
Php 950.00
 YEY! I gave in and decided to treat myself something from my "to buy" list. 
I LOOOOVE IT! ♥ I wore it already and, I am in love! 

The total amount olf the 2 plus SF was Php 2049.00. But I only paid Php 1549.00 for these 2 awesome babies! :) 500 pesos is a huge thing for me, so it was such a steal!
I am very very happy with these two and also for the smooth transaction I had with the shop. Mindy is super nice! :)
I cannot wait to order more products from Stuff in Style soon. VERY SOON, hopefully! :P

FAVORITES: September 2012

I missed this! :) So, I am back with my September Favorites! YES! I cannot believe it too. It is already October, oh yeah. It really is insane. The next thing we know, it is already Christmas. [ 83 DAYS TO GO, BTW. :P ]

Anyhoo, the products I will mention are not so new already. :P Some are rediscovered, or already mentioned in my past posts. I don't have tons of products this month, but these are the things I am really loving and using every single day. Here is my August Faves if you want to see it. :) 

1. Krave Minerale's Moisture Souffle [ sample ] 
I got this as a gift from Ate Michelle of Micmic's Corner. And this bad boy smells AH-MAZZZZING! 
I love the smell of it! I love how it makes my face smooth after application. I love it!

2 Nivea Creme
I used to use this as a moisturizer but I stopped using it. Now, I looooove using it as a hand cream cause it makes my hands feel so soft and smooth. 

3. Kleenex Protect Moisturizing Antibacterial Wipes [ Watermelon Scent ] 
This one smells amazing also! It smells like a super sweet watermelon. 

4-5 Zen Zest Eau de Cologne in Blush and Seduce
I tend to switch scents every now and then. And this month I have been loving these 2 babies again.
I love the very subtle and "nice girl" scent of Blush. And the very crispy "seductive" scent of Seduce. 
I really love them both. I use Blush if I want to feel mabait. And Seduce if I am feeling sexy. :P 

6. Fashion21 Loose Powder
I use this to "mattify" my face after putting on my foundation. 
I love that it gives my face a "fresh" and a smooth looking glow. 

7. James Cooper Cream Foundation in CF 03
I still love this foundation every time I need full coverage. 
This is an awesome cream foundation. 

8. ELF Duo [ Bronzer ] 
You guys already know this. I am inlove with this bronzer. I just love it. Enough said. 

9. Avon True Color Blush in Rose Lustre
I have this for a few months already but I really don't use it that much. But this month, I have been loving this blush. I love how pigmented it is. And the shade is just pretty. 

10. Careline Oil Control Blush in Morena Star
I have been using this a lot lately as well. I love using this to contour my face. If I want a very visible contour, I use this. 

11. ELF Eyelid Primer 
I use this every time I put on eyeshadow. It makes the shadow last longer especially when you have a very VERY VERY oily lids like me. :P 

12. BOB Super Curl Mascara
I loooove this! I will review this, soon. PROMISE! 

13. Wet N' Wild Trio in Walking on Eggshells 
I have been very busy and LAZY lately. So every time I have extra time, I will put on eye shadow. And I always find myself grabbing this trio from Wet N' Wild because it is the easiest shadows to work with. 

14. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa
I am running low on this product already. But I love using this as a tint. I will use this just to add a little color on my lips.   I just love how it glides on smoothly on your lips.

15. Wet N' Wild Megalast Lip color in Sugar Plum Fairy
I am inlove with this baby! It is perfect for Fall! 
Just like what I have mentioned, I am very lazy lately. And this color is PERFECT for lazy days! 

16 Carmex Lip Balm
No doubt. I still am INLOVE with this! 

I don't have a new favorite movie/series this month but I am still loving Gossip Girl.
It is still on repeat EVERY night. I am not even kidding. I am obsessed! 

And I cannot wait for Season 6!!! I am such a fan of this series, really. :P 
[ GG Season 6 - - October 11 , ETC ]

Maroon 5 's Wipe your Eyes
AH! I am a fan of this band ever since This Love. I love Adam and the band. I am not obsessed but I like a lot of their songs. I love Sunday Morning, She will be Loved and more. And this one, my goodness! I have been listening to this every single day. :P  I love the lyrics and melody, well the song itself. 


I still love to watch Miss Emily because her videos are really informative! It really shows how much time and effort she spend to have something worth watching and worth reading.  She is also super nice! I was super happy when she replied to my tweet. It made my day! ♥

And of course, Judy. I love her videos as well because it is also very informative. I also love watching her daily vlogs. 

I need to watch the two them every day and then I am done! :) 

Miss Aya of CodenameAya

I love how informative her blog is also. She is also a super sweet and nice girl. :) 
She blogs about makeup, nails and a lot more. 
I also think she is pretty. And her skin, I am jealous! It looks super flawless. LOVE IT! 

This past month, I always crave for cookies. Chocolate cookies in particular. 
I don't know what it is but I have been eating cookies a lot lately. 

What are your favorite product/s for September?!
Have you tried any of the products mentioned?! Have you seen Gossip Girl? Are you a fan too?! :) 
For your thoughts, suggestions or queries.

September Lovin' : Fall 2012 Makeup Look

WARNING : Sort of Long post. :P

Tonight's post is the 3rd and the last installment of my month long collaboration with 2 lovely people, Ate Michelle of Micmic's Corner and Iya of From nails to makeup
[ Want to know more about the collaboration?! Click HERE

It was such a fun experience! Getting to know these ladies more while doing our weekly makeup looks, talking about beauty and personal things as well. 
 The first week, we did a Disney Inspired look and it was challenging!  I am not really that creative or experimental especially with bold colors. But of course, these ladies helped me. I guess from us 3, Iya is the MOST creative one when it comes to colorful eye makeups. I loved her Jasmine Inspired look! Very JASMINE!   ♥

For our second week, we have decided to do the famous 500 Pesos Makeup Challenge
It was really challenging also because I have breakouts and I really need something that will offer good coverage. And it was really hard to come up with something "presentable" with a little amount of budget. This challenge  Ate Michelle showed that simplicity is really beauty. I love how simple her look is but it still looks classy. ♥
So for the last part of our collaboration. We have decided to do something very timely. We also wanted to do something classy but fun at the same time. Something you guys will remember.

So without further blabbing/stuttering/whatever-ing. 
Here is my Fall 2012 Makeup Look.   ♥

Smokey eyes are so in, as usual. But the difference this Fall, is the shades. You can use "unusual" colors of shadows like purple, blue and even green shades.

I personally don't really know how to "smoked" a look. But I tried. :P 
I used purple because I love purple on the eyes. It is gorgeous! I just love how purple looks so pretty, classy and elegant all the same time. 

the lighting here sucks!

 If ever you're doing smokey looks, it is normal to use a nude shade of lipstick. 
But I chose not to because BRIGHT lips are also in this season. 
Bright red, bright pink and even bright orange. 
 Vampy lips are already a statement during Fall season. Wine red, or berry-ish colors. Gorgeous ones! But bright ones are so in too! 

For the face, I wanted to keep it simple. I contoured my face and used a little bit of blush.

James Cooper Cream Foundation in CF 03
ELF Blush in Candid Coral
Fashion21 Loose Powder #6
In2it Eyebrow Color
ELF Eyelid Primer
Dollface 88 Earth Color Palette [ light pink color "inner lids" and highlight ]  
Fashion21 Color Set  [ brown "crease: and purple "outer two thirds" ] 
 Nichido GNO Eye Pencil in Blackest black
 BOB Super Curl Mascara

Excuse this photo. It is a little bit too light because the lamp I was using was literally in front of my face. :P But I love this picture. Very model-ish. HAHAHA :P FEELINGERA!

I fell in love with the look. I think its something I can pull off. It is something different even without using too much colors. I think it is still on the safe side. 
But of course, I cannot NOT use my "signature" thing. A bright and bold lips. :)

Here is another look I tried to pull off. 

 NUDE makeups are also in this season. 
Nude lips are so not me, but I look very nice/good girl, right?! haha It makes me look super quiet. 
I also tried the THICK BROWS because that is also in this Fall. Thick, well groomed brows and well defined brows. Mine isn't well groomed though. :P
FLUSHED cheeks or very vibrant colored cheeks are in also. 
Very tisayin and peg! :P

 To end this collaboration we did. I have a short message to my 2 girls here. ♥

To Ate Michelle and Iya. YEY! We made it! LOL
This collab we did made me get to know more of you girls. And I am really glad that I gained friends like you. 
Thanks for being nice to me. For the friendship and for everything. 
I am excited for our future plans. I am excited to meet you 2 in person. 
I am happy that I gained 2 new pretty sisters! ♥

Ate, you're really nice and helpful and thoughtful and a lot more. I can spend the whole day talking to you because I learn a lot from you. You're so nice and so genuine. 
Thank you! From the very beginning you were there, 'til now. :) 

Iya, I think you're really pretty and nice. Thanks for making us laugh. LOL For your winning "sabaw" moments. Thank you for being a sweet lady. :) For the support and the encouragements, thank you also! It means a lot!
And I am really jealous of you're flawless face :P 

There you have it. 
I hope you enjoyed our collaboration. 
It was fun! REALLY! I would love to do this again with these ladies and of course with other bloggers as well. ♥

Enough of the "emo" part. :) 
Make sure to check out the looks these 2 lovely ladies also did.
