Blog absence

I dont think i can blog again, i have so many new products that i want to review because they work really good (nyx round lipstick fire that doesn't need a lip primer, lancome idol teint also don't need a face primer, and more) but i just cant find the time!

maybe before our vacation i can sit down and sort them before they are given away.

#hopeful :)

Pills, pills, pills

Im changing my contraceptive pills again, the second time this year. I was using cerazette since bembem but my ob said it was not reliable so i had to change to yasmin, even though i really love cerazette because it has no side effect..

And now after 3 or 4 packets of yasmin im changing again to diane-35 because yasmin gives me terrible headaches during my gap period where my hormone normalizes.

I just hope there is no side effect to this one. Id hate to change again if diane will give me migraine or weight gain :(

*fingers crossed*

My first stippling brush

I was hesitant to buy a stippling brush because i thought if it is not expensive then it is not good.  But i was wrong when i got this one :)

From bh cosmetics, for only $5.21 (plus shipping)

This is one of my must have brush nowadays, because of 1. ease of use 2. saves a lot of foundation 3. good effect of foundation on my face :)

I found it easiest to use with mac mineralize liquid foundation because it spreads the product on my face the fastest, but with benefit's some kinda gorgeous foundation faker- it doesn't have the coverage that i had compared to using elf foundation brush. Unless i dab it over and over again, which i don't coz i get tired with just one cycle. The cause is that it picks only up a tiny amount of foundation, and that's why my benefit lasted for more than two months :)

So yes, it depends on your foundation also, but overall it is still a good soft brush, especially after cleaning (must clean daily, for hygienic reasons and because it's so soft when it's clean)

For how-tos:

Crackle not good :(

A friend gave me my first crackle polish and like eveyone else, i was in awe as it appeared on my nail after applying. I just wished it lasted....

After just one day it looked like this only the white base coat remains strong, the crackle polish disappears little by little :(

Have to change this tomorrow, then!

Bright idea :)

I took home an old cd rack from the office (along with some old cd cases) and turned it into a makeup cabinet!

What a really good idea, right?

I can even customize the height of each level by putting each cd rack into the level i need :)

Now i can see everything i need in front of me: sunglasses, eyeshadows, blushes, primers, brushes and perfumes.

I love this red lipstick!

I did not own any red lipstick until 2012 coz its just too bold to use, but i just love this one from nyx!!!

mommy's red lips versus bembem's natural ones.  i think my baby won :)

especially when i use it with too faced lip insurance! ka-boom! the color just fixes my whole face, and that's all the make up that i need :)

though my problem is that it sometimes would not go into my inner lips, so i have this fine line of red color on my outer lipline, and my natural lip color peeks through in the middle.  how to fix this? i still don't know, i just load up on lip primer each time and pucker after puckering it just blends away..

face powders of the moment

nyx black label compact powder and too faced absolutely invisible translucent powder:

i don't usually use face powders because i have been relying on bare escentuals mineral veil for 5 years now but i cannot get one with an affordable price online, and im really cost-cutting at the moment :) so i had to try one of these which are affordable and got really good reviews.

i had nyx first, because it was on sale at bcc, and when my mineral veil ran out i switched to it immediately.  i really love the big mirror, on the photo above you can see that the top cover swivels, but it also flips like this so you can use the mirror while using the powder:

the powder is matte, and it gives a nice finish after i use benefit's some kinda gorgeous foundation faker, but it doesn't have the wow factor that i get with mineral veil, which has a blurring effect to the face that it's almost translucent to see, i don't know how to explain it but think of a really sheer highlighter which has no shine but has good coverage.  oh, i miss it now :(

nyx does the job, yes, but it's just that. nothing absolutely amazing... but for now it's ok for everyday use... and it looks nice, too :)

but this is cuter:

"why be pretty when you can be gorgeous?"   it :)
i ordered it online but my first buy was cancelled by the seller so i had to look for another affordable one, and when i did, i happened to buy nyx at the local mall, and this one arrived 3 weeks later..

when i first tried it i had to use the pink sponge that was included, because i was rushing to f1 and i did not have time to get a brush.  i patted it on my face and it looked cakey!  totally horrible :-S i don't know why they have to put a sponge that will ruin the quality of their product (?), coz when i used it at home the next morning using a bare escentuals heavenly face brush which looks flat (or a round kabuki / any big face brush will do) it was almost invisible to the face, so amazing how your mediums can affect the products that you use :)!

now im so happy with it coz it's a good replacement for b.e. mineral veil, and i only need a little product  to cover my whole face :) i love it i love it i love it :)

so, that's my review for now, i am looking forward to another one which will cover bhcosmetics brushes!  *excited*

hand lotions

 ♫ My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken 

yes, im not blessed with soft, good-looking hands that's why i have to use lotions to keep it moisturized, otherwise it looks crinkly and dry :-S

im not a hoarder, but i realized that have 3 hand lotions in my bag:

first is from a versace set that francis gave me when he went to dubai, and i only use it when im with him, coz out of my seven perfumes he only likes to smell bright crystal on me :)

next is from hand and body works that i got free on a buy-one-take-one promotion they had last christmas, the one i bought is a bigger hand lotion (francis uses that lotion every morning coz he likes the smell), while this small one is a lotion/antibac.  so cool (for me) !

and the third one is also from a victoria's secret set, they had a pre-christmas sale on a lotion-cologne-body wash set and i got this orange set for me while my christmas monita got the violet set which actually has a makeup bag but i kept it (*bad bad me*)

apart from these i also have belo whitening lotion in our bedroom drawer.  

i don't know why but im really conscious when my hands feels dry.  especially after washing (and i wash a lot), i have to use a hand-lotion to moisturize coz apart from feeling freakishly dry, they look like granny hands!  :P
