Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

I thought I already ran out of makeup removers. Turns out I have another small bottle of the Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. This is probably my third bottle. All of which came from Estee Lauder makeup sets. 😀

Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover 001v2

I like that this is not oily, fragrance-free, and wipes out eye makeup without leaving residue. It just cannot remove right away stubborn eye liners and mascaras, but it can so when a soaked cotton (with the makeup remover) is placed on the eyes a little longer — say, 20 seconds — then lightly swiped off. That works for me somewhat. The makeup remover isn’t irritating on my eyes. I guess that isn’t so for others?

EOTD: So it’s grey not green?

These past few days have been terribly terribly hot. DX If only I can not go out in mornings! But there’s work. =_= Anyway, last night I saw in the root folder of one of my external drives a photo of Emily Browning:

I remember saving this because of her pretty shimmery eye makeup which looks to be pale emerald green. Since I’m going out today, I thought of attempting to copy it. I have a similar shade in one of my Estee Lauder palettes so I took that out for this. 🙂

FOTN: Farming and tanking night

In spite the exhaustion from yesterday morning’s inspection all over Makati, I still pushed through farming and tanking with other *insert game here* players. I can’t disclose yet what game it is until I blog about it. 😀 Anyway, I wanted to personally meet the mucho friendly people who welcomed me to their group.

I did a dark eye makeup since I would be meeting them late night plus I feel like doing dark eye makeup more often (or as long as I’m not going to the office).

FOTD: Here’s another office makeup look

FOTD 2014-0302 001v2

Here’s another (easy) office/work make-up look. For this, I use mostly those from the Laura Mercier Luxe Colour Wardrobe Dual Decker Colour for Eyes & Cheeks which I have been happily using ever since I purchased it. Total Laura Mercier convert now that I already have a couple in mind for my next purchase from them. 😀

Getting dry skin on this relatively chilly weather

Hasn’t it been very cold lately? Colder than last year’s and this chilly weather even started earlier than I expected. I like it actually because I get to wear my jackets, sweaters, or blazers to work without arriving in the office looking as though I took a bath in my own sweat. But the AC in our office adjusts to the weather outside (because it’s fucked like that), so if baby it’s cold outside, then it’s way colder in the office. With the cold weather outside and chiller office, my skin from head to toe has suffered from extreme dryness. Thankfully I don’t have scaly skin, but it’s still annoying. I had to change some of my skin care products to keep up with my extremely dry skin.

Dramatic Pastels Palette from last year’s Estee Lauder holiday collection

First, I want to apologize for the quality of the pictures of the eyeshadow and cheek palette. The swatches are fine, but the palette pictures were taken last year with a different camera and I only checked them today only to see how dark they were. I tried to edit them as much as I could; made sure the colors of the eyeshadows and blush are as close to real life.

Anyway, now that’s clear, let’s move on…

Estee Lauder Signature and Pure Color EyeShadow palette

Today was really sunny that it was a good time to make swatches. So I did with the palette I’ve been using for some time already. This has also been in my makeup pouch for about two months straight. I use it almost everyday especially for work. It’s a new favorite. I ♥ it. 🙂

The palette contains four each of Estee Lauder Signature and Pure Color EyeShadow. It is a mix of matte and satin shades. Some sheer. Some are buildable for a dramatic eye look yet not to an over-made extent which makes the palette good for either day or night looks.
