My office had its annual outing a couple of weekends ago. I was in charge of our itinerary, so I planned visits to an underground cemetery, spring water falls, a man-made lake, and an organic farm. Details of the outing will be in my blog. Instead, let me show you the makeup I brought.
I call this look “Shabby Chic” because of the lip color. ☺ Excuse the pimple and tiny bumps btw because my face went through purging.
Laura Mercier Oil-Free Foundation Primer
Maybelline FitMe Matte & Poreless Foundation
Essence Camouflage Concealer
CoverGirl trunaked nudes — Shell (all over lid up to brow bone), Sable (lower half of lid and lower lash line), Coffee (socket), Fawn (on top of Coffee), Mink (inner corner and lower lash line)
Detail Make Over Duo Liquid Eyeliner and Eyebrow Pen
Essence Lash & Brow Gel Mascara
CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara
Sleek Matte Me in Shabby Chic
I’ll start with the gifts.
Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter
I received these from the exchange gift at Team Aguhon’s Christmas dinner. They came in boxes that can be hung to a Christmas tree. Such a cute idea to instead of placing them under. I already started to use the Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm and it works nice under lipsticks. Lipsticks go smooth and even over it and prevents lip dryness especially from lipsticks that do dry then out.
Better late than never. 😆
The holiday season is the busiest time of the year. Not only with the Christmas rush of gift shopping and/or get-togethers, but work deadlines too, which is difficult when you’re already feeling the holidays. I didn’t get to switch beauty and skin care products when December came because I was very busy to bother. Besides, almost everything I used in November I ended up liking so much that I didn’t want to switch yet. Even so, there are only a few that I really loved and would consider favorites. I think the same goes for Joiz. 🙂 I’ll begin with hers.
This was my makeup for New Year’s.
The family and I only stayed home, so it seemed this was too much. But I wanted to play with makeup. 😛 I also missed wearing my Mac Sin.
A collective post on my loot from third quarter this year to present. There are some I couldn’t find photos I took of, so I didn’t include them here. I don’t want to retake because I don’t remember when I bought them should I remember which ones they are from my makeup stuff. Anyway, I added my initial impressions per product below.
Benefit Rockitude! – I only wanted the Benetint, but I saw this and thought this was such a good deal. I get to try the High Beam too!
Benefit Porefessional – This great for travel since, for a face powder, it comes with a brush instead of a puff.
