FOTN: Green and Blue Mushroom

The Glam Love ladies had Japanese dinner last night. I went with a light green, light blue, and pink look inspired by a mushroom art in the Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland palette.

Face:

The BB cream and concealers have been applied hours before that’s why I don’t look that _fresh_. I doubt I would anyway since it was a very warm day. Summer, why you so early!? =_=

FOTD 2012 February 11

I found out not too long ago that my brother changed the settings of my camera that’s why most of my FOTDs and FOTNs were either grainy or blurry. Lesson learned — Double-check settings of camera before taking pictures. Stupid of me not to think of that when I wondered all the time why the quality of the pictures didn’t look too well. Oh, since I browsed through previous FOTDs and FOTNs, I realized how I _slightly_ got better in makeup application.

Moving on to the point of this post…

Estee Lauder Pure Color Topaz Collection for Spring 2012

The collection consists of:
Pure Color Sensuous Rouge Lip Color in Sultry Caramel, Sensuous Nude, and Sublime Nectar
Pure Color Five Color Topaz Mosaic eyeshadow palette
Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Topaz Chameleon
Pure Color Gloss in Citron Kiss
Pure Color Intense Kajal Eye Crayon in Dramatic Black and Dramatic Teal
Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Teal Topaz

I love the color of Dramatic Teal. I have read some blogs on this collection and Topaz Chameleon is getting good reviews. I think I want that. :3 Because I lack a highlighter and bronzer in my makeup stash. Topaz Chameleon makes a great of both. 😀 Citron Kiss is as tempting as the aforesaid. I have yet to see if this collection is/will be available locally.

Estee Lauder eyeshadow and blush palette

My first Estee Lauder eyeshadow and blush palette that one of my grandmas gave me:

Estee Lauder Eye Shadow and Blush 002

This palette is half a foot by two inches.

Estee Lauder Eye Shadow and Blush 001
Compared it with a small Cricket lighter since that’s the nearest to me at the time I took pictures

This palette includes six (sheen) eyeshadows, a blush, eyeshadow sponge applicator, and a blush brush.

I’ll start this review with the eyeshadow sponge applicator and blush brush.

FOTN: Green for Soiree Beaujolais

I enjoyed another night of free-flowing wines, tuna, salmon, cheeses and charcuteries from France at the Soiree Beaujolais held at Sofitel Philippine Plaza last November 17, 2011. As usual, I went in an all-white dress. I decided to play with green for my eye makeup.

Because I have to temporarily relocate and I didn’t bring all my things, I have limited jewelry to wear for the night. Then again, I’d rather look ‘simple and innocent’ with my ‘virgin dress.’ XD; That’s what I call all my white dresses. LOL

Estee Lauder Eyeshadow in Ivory Box and Berry Ice

I’ve had this duo eyeshadow for quite a while now.

Estee Lauder Eyeshadow Ivory Box and Berry Ice 001-002

The sponge-tip applicator ‘melted’, so I threw that away. Who uses those? I sometimes do. 😛

Estee Lauder Eyeshadow Ivory Box and Berry Ice 003

Plastic case seems durable enough and its clear cover is a bit thick. What I dislike about cases like this is that it loses the ‘lock’ in time. But the cover doesn’t open that easily as the hinges are adequately tight. This is smaller than my palm, so it shall easily fit your purse or cosmetic case.

FOTD: Slow Saturday

Yesterday seemed like a slow day. There were hardly any people in the malls. I guess everyone stayed in because of the rain or went on a trip to make the most of the long weekend. While I, on the other hand, hung out with Jan from afternoon until late evening for Army Navy and Starbucks coffee (I’m helping her collect stickers). I went out in a semi-sporty attire, so I put on a near-natural eye make-up.

First time I tried my recently acquired Clinique eye shadow palette that contains soft pinks and sheer matte brown.

FOTN: My Brother’s Post-Birthday Celebration

We celebrated my brother’s birthday last night. His birthday was actually last Thursday, July 28. Fortunately, I got to leave office early because of an evacuation drill. I was able to prepare myself with a simple look. 🙂

My right eye is a bit red ^^;;;

Face:

  • Etude House BB Cream
  • Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer

I didn’t put any blush-on because my skin’s still reddish from the beach. Well, I rarely use blush-on anyway.

I think this came out blurry.
Sorry, kind of in a hurry. (They rhyme! :P)
