Birthday Look

So many beautiful blessings on my birthday. Indeed, God is very good (and generous). I’ll be writing a separate post on that; this short post is on today’s look and which is something I’m thankful for – getting the hang of eye makeup.

To put it bluntly, I suck in doing eye makeup. I can never seem to get the right blending, it always creases, I mess up just when I’m about to finish lining my lid, and all other eye makeup emergencies. So when I had lunch with a good friend today and she commented how ‘nice’ my eye makeup was today, it made me feel a little bit ‘kilig’ inside. 🙂 I’m glad that this is the second time that I’ve received compliments on it. I guess practice will make it perfect someday. :p

Let’s skip the blah blah blahs and get down to today’s look.

Thank you pd & co. for today’s beautiful top.

August Favorites: Maybelline, Avon, VMV, TonyMoly, Palgantong

The thing with this passion for cosmetics: it comes with a constant desire to test new products. There is one and every product for each need and want imaginable. I liken it to getting to know oneself; along the way of every product try is a chance to discover really good ones that raise our confidence a wee bit higher.

While we’re at the half of September, I thought I’d run through a couple of products that were in my mental ‘Favorites’ list for the month of August. These are products which I have tested last month and found to be very effective.

Without further ado, these are my ‘hit’ products for August:

1. Maybelline Baby Lips Cellular Repair Balm in Smoothing Cherry

The kikay girl in me has been a sucker for lip balms since I was 10. I’ve gone from cult favorite Chapstick to Nivea to Blistex and back but I’ve never really been very satisfied with it. It tended to make my lips peel and a bunch of other effects which left me wondering when whether lip balm was really as essential as many beauty gurus point out. But this one from Maybelline really works for me.

True to its promise of supple, smooth and hydrated baby soft lips, this is my HG lip balm. No more peeling and rough-to-the-touch lips! 🙂 

Plus points for not having a chemical taste to it and the yummy scent of cherry. ♥  Continue reading

FOTD: Trying out Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

20120903-234659.jpg

Late post of FOTD: Trying out Maybelline’s Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. 🙂

I tried to experiment a little bit more with my eyes as I am a complete noob (not to mention klutz!) when it comes to eye makeup. Tried on cream eyeliner for the first time; a little bit of useless information: it’s always the liner (especially liquid) that ruins the look for me courtesy of my shaky hands.
