Late post: Summer haul!

I never got to post pictures of these babies until today. Sorry! But here ya go:

Top to bottom: Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait, Wet n Wild Megalast in Mauve Outta Here, Wet n Wild Silky Finish in Sunset Peach

Lippies galore! Got these from Dianna's online shop. The last one was a freebie. :D  Got really curious about the lip butters so I just had to get one. So far, I think it's ok, but I wouldn't pay that much for a tinted lip balm, I guess. I prefer the texture of Human Nature's tinted lip balm.   As for the Wet n Wild lippies, I like the colors of these two lippies. But the mauve one is a bit stronger than my usual color preference so I don't get to use it as much.  On my 'daring' days, I go for that. :D

Top Row: Etude House cotton swabs, Etude House Orgel Light eyeshadows
Bottom Row: Skin Food Rice Mask sample, ELF angled foundation brush

I bought the eyeshadows and brush from Karen, one of my dear blogging friends.  She gave me the cotton swabs and rice mask as freebies. Love them!

Last but not the least, false eyelashes!

These eyelashes were bought by the lovely Shimmerjjang Andy.  When she posted the pictures of these lashes, I knew I just had to try them out. I don't really wear falsies but, come on, who wouldn't want longer fuller lashes? XDDD  I never thought the day would come that I'd want to wear these falsies but it did arrive sooner than I thought. ;)

For now, I am putting myself on a makeup shopping ban because I have more than enough makeup in my stash. To think Weng just sent me a really special gift! A Sephora makeup palette!

I ended up giving my Shawill eyeshadow palette to my sister because I have more than enough colors on this wonderful palette. :3

That's all for now. Hope you found this haul post interesting~!

FOTD: Long wear no makeup look

I hardly post any pictures of myself because I am highly self-conscious. But after yesterday, I guess it's time to try and post face of the day updates from time to time. ;)  My boyfriend and I attended a wedding in Laguna yesterday and considering how lazy I could get, I wanted something long wearing and yet natural looking for my face.  It's a wedding, after all.  Here it goes:

Without glasses. 

With glasses in my boyfriend's car. XD Need the glasses or I won't see properly!

Weddings in general make me use primers because I never know how humid it could get in the venue.  And I hate retouches because I end up spending so much time in the restroom. So here's a list of the products I used for this look:

Face: Benefit Porefessional primer, Benefit Girl Meets Pearl (I used them on my cheeks as volumer), Luview Aqua Essence bb cream (because I like how light it feels and it doesn't make my skin look reddish), Benefit Bella Bamba blush (my favorite!), Krave Minerale Oil Eliminator (my finishing powder), Nature Republic Oil Control Mist
Eyes: Krave Minerale concealer stick (for hiding dark circles), Etude House Drawing Eyebrow in brown, Etude House Proof 10 eye primer, Sephora makeup palette eyeshadows (I only used two shades), ELF liquid eyeliner (pen type in Coffee), NYX jumbo pencil in Milk, Maybelline Hypercurl VolumExpress mascara
Lips: Nanny Rose's lip balm + sunscreen, Etude House Look At My Lips in Paparazzi Coral

Sooo many products! But I just ended up removing excess oils from my face with oil control film and reapplying lipstick or at a later time (dinner and there were hardly any picture taking moments after the first part) Revlon's lip butter in peach parfait.  I am glad I decided to use primers today.  There was a time that it was a bit humid in the church but all was well in general. :D

Most of you who know me personally would be surprised at the pictures. I think that my face looks considerably smaller now compared to last year or even January this year. Oh and the fact that I hardly go and be girly. Lol. 

In other news, I am still losing weight despite my busy work sked, irregular exercise and less strict diet (because of my busy-ness). Nothing drastic but at least, I am still able to do something about my weight. Actually the corset top and skirt I wore yesterday were both quite loose on me, but I had to make do with the things I had at home. I think that I could now start trying on some size 16 and maybe some knitted or stretchy size 14 clothes. ;)  That's such great news for me because I used to wear size 18 and I think that some of my clothes were practically size 20.

So yeah, that's just it for now. I wanted to do a haul post but the images haven't been uploaded yet. Bad internet connection at home.
