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.

Love at First Swipe: NYX Matte Lipstick in Tea Rose

One word this week: HECTIC. I wasn’t even able to push through with yesterday’s dinner and show at Barbara’s which I was so excited about. Nonetheless, I don’t want my poor blog shriveling up just when I’ve started to feel a wee bit more passion for writing again.

NYX Lipstick is a favorite among bloggers – known for its affordable price range as well as the substantial quality that comes with it. Finally, I have had the time (and resources) to try this out for myself. 🙂 Thanks to Skye Avenue for providing me my NYX fix (at a very affordable price too!). 🙂

Since I primarily just wanted to try this out first, I bought just two lippies: Matte Lipstick in Tea Rose and Soft Matte Lip Cream in Pink Peach Fuzz. Allow me to rave about the Matte Lipstick in this post. 🙂

NYX Website says:

NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated lipsticks that glide on smoothly, stay put and impart a non-glossy, high-fashion matte finish as they envelop lips in brilliant color. From Pure Red to Nude, Matte Lipstick is available in 22 rich, shades. 

Why it got me in Love at First Swipe? ♥

  • First, the packaging. It’s straightforward, not too fancy yet not too drab that I wouldn’t want to bring out in public.  Continue reading

FOTD: Trying out Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner


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.

  • Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover
