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.

PRODUCTS USED: 
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. 


TMI :D
 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.

Review : BeautyUK Palette in Soho

Hey awesome people! I am feeling sick again. But I really want to post some beauty related stuffs because I only have a few of that this month. So, I will start with this cute and colorful palette from BeautyUK.

"Beauty UK offers affordable, high quality make-up and cosmetics with the latest range of colours and shades to help you achieve your own individual look."

If you haven't heard about BeautyUK yet, it is a famous drugstore brand that offers a wide variety of products for a very affordable price. Nowadays, there are tons of online shops here in our country that offers BeautyUK products.
[ Check out Skye Avenue. ]
I am a neutral kind of girl but I wanted to have at least a few colorful eye shadows in my collection. When I saw this, I really wanted to get it right away but I didn't. When I saw the Multiply Frenzy thing, I knew I needed to grab that chance to get my hands on these. 
So, I got 2 BeautyUK palettes, the Earth Child palette and this Soho one. I got it last July from Skye Avenue for Php 300.00 only.  
[ July Online Shopping Haul HERE

I will review the BeautyUK Palette in No.2 Soho Bright first. :)

Here is how it looks like. 


At the back you can see the Ingredients and some other information. 


It contains 10 colorful eye shadow. It reminds me of water color! :P Super cute!
Some are semi matte and some has a little bit of shimmers on it. 
The size, I think is comparable to a 25 centavos. 
 

Here are the swatches. 


And here are my favorites out of the 10 shadows.


PROS ♥
--- Very affordable! Php 300 for 10 eye shadows is a pretty sweet deal. 
---  Good color pay off. What you see is the color you get. 
--- The eye shadows are soft and it is easily blendable. 
--- If used with a good primer, I think it will last pretty long. And also, if you use a base the colors will pop out more. 
--- The palette is small enough that it can fit any purse or even your kikay kit. It won't eat up tons of space. 
--- Even if it's small, it contains a lot of products. 

CONS
--- Contains  TALC and PARABENS. 
--- Not all eye shadows are that pigmented. I had high hopes with this product. But I was a little disappointed. But for its price, I think it is okay.
--- Some are really chalky/powdery. So you might experience fall outs. 
---  Without using a primer, it won't last that long. 
--- The shadows are soft that is why it can be easily broken. 
--- The packaging looks and feels cheap. The cover is made of cheap plastic thingy. 

TIP: 
I use a wet brush with this shadows that's why I don't experience that much fall outs. 
I also use an eye shadow base [ NYX JEP in Milk ] which helps the colors to pop out more. 

Will I recommend?
If you are a first timer, I think it is a good product that you can practice with. 
I love the colors. I love the variety of palettes. And I will recommend it for beginners. 

Will I repurchase?
No. I still have a lot of products left on the palette. And I would love to explore more on products with better quality. 

Overall, I think for its price and what it can offer. It is a pretty awesome palette.
It is a handy dandy palette that you can bring around and play around with.

I hope this was helpful. :) Stay tuned for my review on the Earth Child palette.
Have you guys tried any BeautyUK products yet? Have you tried this product in particular?
Any thoughts?! Comment below! ♥

Day 25 Write 5 messages to 5 different people without using names.

Day 25  Write 5 messages to 5 different people without using names. 
I am looking forward for this one. :) 

1st message: 
Hi...
  I don't understand why you keep on talking sh*t about other people but you keep on letting every one know that you have the most perfect and happiest life ever. I don't think genuinely happy people act like that. If you're really happy with your life, why bother hurting other people's feelings. You're not better than anyone, remember that.
Also,you kept on telling me before how you "respect" people and all those fancy stuffs, but I don't think you know the meaning of RESPECT. 
You talk behind other people's back, you act like a child and post unnecessary stuffs in public. You discriminate just because you're not like them. 
Do not forget that being "blunt" or "frank" is different from being bastos and disrespectful. 
Now, tell me who is more immature. ME or YOU?! 
May God bless you! 

2nd:
To... 
How are you? I hope you're doing good. It has been more or less 3 months since the last time we talked. I still think about you every now and then, but I know I shouldn't anymore. I just want to say sorry. Sorry for breaking your heart. I just knew that we both needed it. 
It happened for a reason, I am sure of that. Do not let go of all your dreams. You're such a great man and you deserve all the happiness in life. 

3rd:
Hey...
Please don't grow up so quick. You are a precious creature. And I love you with all my heart. You bring joy and happiness in my life when I needed it most. 
I am so happy to have you. 

4th:
Ehem...
You guys are angels in disguise. All the bad things you're saying to me are helping me grow more and be better. It's funny how you guys have enough time to read my posts and hate on. I feel sorry for you guys cause I know that you lack love in your life. You lack happiness. I understand why you're always hating on every thing I do. 
I hope I can share with every one the love and happiness I am getting from all these awesome people I met through this blog. 

5th:
Hello...
I miss you! I know I have been avoiding you for a few months now.
I am going through a lot of crazy things. And honestly, I was hurt when you're not around when I needed you most. 
I miss you though. I really do. But I just need a little bit more time. 
I hope you understand.

PS. I am writing posts in advance because I have a free time. 
I don't want to waste any second of it. :) I might be busy the next following days, so yeah. That is why I am doing this. :P

Day 24 Do you have saved text messages? If so, who are they from and why do you still have them?

Day 24  Do you have saved text messages?  If so, who are they from and why do you still have them? 
 Saved?! NO! 
But I still have messages from my dad, mom, siblings, cousins and friends.
I still have them mainly because I am too busy and LAZY to delete them :P 

I used to! When I was in high school I used to save TONS of quotes and significant messages on my old phone. Messages from my closest friends, and crushes. :P 
I used to save all those in one folder and read them over and over again. :)

Day 22 and Day 23

30 Days Blog Challenge
Day 22  What’s an inside joke you have with someone?
Day 23  Two months ago, where were you and what were you doing? 
An inside joke I HAD was related to tigers. :P 
It was me and my EX's thing. hehe I can't and WON'T explain it. 
It was something really funny though. I cannot think of anything else right now, eh.

 2 months ago, it was July 23 and it was a Monday.
I think I was facebook-ing as usual. Or maybe I am sleeping already. 
Or if not, I am cleaning my desk/makeup area. OR I am watching a movie. 
I cannot remember exactly because I have a bad memory. And also, I do basically the same things every night. :P
