FOTN: 10th of July Night Look

Jan and I had a window-shopping trip at Greenhills last Saturday. I actually had to pick up a toy there, but most of our time was spent on window-shopping… For laptops. Hrhr~ XD;

I had no idea what look to for that night. I thought I’d just experiment with the Ammo palette. I was tired of neutrals too being that’s my everyday/office-look. I decided to re-try Urban Decay’s Last Call because the first time was fail.

Etude House Juicy Pop Tube #13

Last month, I blogged about my Etude House Juicy Pop Tube purchase.

Juicy Pop Tube #13

The Etude House Juicy Pop Tube costs only PhP128 which is about $3 or less. I tested about 3 or 4 tubes and chose the shimmery pink — the #13.

Turns out to be sheer and hardly made my lips look pink. I wasn’t expecting it to be pigmented, but not as disappointing as this. Also, it has too much glitters. I squeezed out a gunk of glitter one time. I wiped that off and, when I applied on my lips, my lips still became silver. *facepalms* That pissed me off because the glitters were hard to remove. Eventually, I learned that if you have the tube placed vertically in your pouch or bag, the cap part should be upward so the glitters would settle at the bottom.

Last weekend’s purchases and where to find Mosbeau

It took me until this weekend to get this post up. ^^;;; Sorry! I wouldn’t have been procrastinating if it weren’t for my sudden ‘problem.’ ~_~

Olay - Natural White
Olay – Natural White

What I really use is Olay’s White Radiance which I got from my Mum. She gave it to me after my breakup late last year. 😛 I’m about to hit the bottom of the jar, so I went out to look for another. I found it odd that I couldn’t find one. Then my Mum told me that she purchased it in the US. Now I hope this Natural White is as effective as White Radiance. Reviews for both to come. 😀

FOTD: Saturday dinner with friends

I had dinner at Isshin with my gurlfriends and their boys last Saturday night. Since I have been collecting a bunch of photos for makeup inspiration, I thought it’s about time I tried one of them. I went with this:

Inspiration

Most of the time I just use my imagination for ideas which mostly ends in an eye makeup fail. 🙁

I skipped the application of the false lashes and liquid eyeliner.

Eyes:

  • Urban Decay Mushroom (Alice in Wonderland palette)
  • Urban Decay Drink Me, Eat Me (Alice in Wonderland palette)

1. DDF DAILY MATTE SPF 15
2. Banana Boat UltraMist Sport SPF 15 Continuous Clear Spray
3. Philosophy A Pigment Of Your Imagination SPF 18
4. Eminence Sun Defense Minerals

What’s New on Joiz’s Desk

While my friends, Shabby and Karen have been regularly delivering more-than-awesome posts here, this will be my first. I won’t be talking a lot about make up and rather concentrate on other beauty/fitness-related products and topics but since it is my first post, I’ll be mimicking the two other ladies by introducing you to a few of my own make up. I don’t wear a lot of make up on a regular basis so I don’t have a lot either. Anyway, let me introduce you to my more-than-usual messy desk.

Etude House’s Proof 10 Eye Primer

It was due to browsing beauty blogs did I discover about Etude House. The name sounded familiar. When I saw Lee Min Ho in one of Etude House’s ads did I remember where I saw Etude House — a cm of theirs with him in it. I didn’t think they’d land into Philippine shores.

The cuteness of the shop had me sold. I asked Jan that we visit in their one and only (but not for long) store in Megamall. Being that I was very poor at that time we went there, I only got to purchase one item:
