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:


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.

Clash of the Titans movie night out look

Last April 3 was a Clash of the Titans movie night out with Marco and Joiz. I decided to go green and brown.

Eye makeup

The shades I used are from the Urban Decay Ammo palette are Mildew (which is surprisingly lighter on skin than how it looks) on the inner to the middle lid, Smog on the outer lid to the outer crease, Chopper on and above the crease, and Polyester Bride for highlight. I used the Mildew again as an eye liner. The mascara I used is The Face Shop’s Glamax.

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.

Review: MAC Pink Swoon made me swoon

Tis time for another beauty product review! Let me introduce you to my new favorite blush, MAC Pink Swoon.

blush reviewblush review

Let me just say that this blush is sooo great. It’s very light pink which, when applied, makes the girl appear blushing! I think this is better than NARS’ Blush in Orgasm. There is a drawback to this great product though. It will only work on fair skin. Otherwise, the blush wouldn’t show. I already have fair skin and Pink Swoon barely registers on camera. See the photo below.

Nu-Pore Make-up Remover

Last month, Jan and I went on an unplanned shopping at Japan Home Center. What I really wanted was those small resealable plastics like Ziplock, but I ended up getting Care Bears and make-up remover wipes.

There were only two packs left, so Jan took the other. I couldn’t forget how she took the Care Bears wipes from me because she thought it was unfair that I had both. When I got another set of Care Bears and Nu-Pore wipes, she was one happy girl. XD;

Mosbeau, the latest in skin whitening treatments

Last week, Mitch Velete messaged me on Twitter inviting me to a skincare launch. I said I will go and asked if I can take Joiz and Shabby with me. She said I can so I told the ladies about it. Mitch even asked me to invite other bloggers and since I don’t have many connections to other bloggers, I decided to seek Sophie‘s help and she did. Thanks, Sophie!
