FitFlop Landed in BGC and the SuperWomen Were There!

That's US!
Yes, I can definitely claim that title!  I believe I am a Superwoman in my own eyes and probably my husband's and son's eyes! 

It was a full day with Blogger Friendship Angela and Jackie.  I am so glad I get to spend the crazy day with them laughing, shopping and just being ourselves --- CRAZY! :P

Thanks Ruth from FitFlop for helping us take these photos!

The reason for the girl-bonding?  A visit at the 9th free-standing store of FitFlop!  I've been a long-time user of the brand and let me tell you one thing, my first pair is still in good shape and looks spankin' new!  It is my choice of footwear on a casual weekend!  You know, days when I know I don't have to look posh!

Thankfully, things have changed for the brand!  After the store visit, I've realized wearing extremely comfortable footwear does not always equate into "BLAH"!  This season, FitFlop roll sout stylish pieces for Spring and I am so excited to share to you my favorites!  

The FitFlop's Spring 2015 collection are definitely more stylish without having to sacrifice comfort -- Oh Thank you For that!

I spotted FitFlop's Petra Thoe-Tong sandals.  The Petra features a soft snake texture upper decorated with three mirrrored jewels astop its slimline straps.  After trying them out, it is indeed comfort to the nth power!  Made to withstand long walks because of the built-in arch contour! 

And if I may have to add, there are way more designs, colors and styles to choose from!

AMW Reviews: Etude House Face Color Corset Shade #5

For the first time, Etude House came up with a makeup packaging this is a bit simple BUT still unique in every way!

The Etude House Face Color Corset got my attention because I'm on the hunt of contour powder that is inexpensive yet works for my skin tone.  #5 is called Tight Shading Corset which I have a feeling is perfect for users with fair to medium skin tone.

Back to the packaging, it is in sleek plastic compact with clear top, with ring on the edge and corset design --- I call that cute and unique!  And yes, I kinda get it on the corset thing --- corset can instantly change your figure, just like a contour product --- as long as you get the perfect "Fit"'ll give you that instant "lift" and "Magic".

Shade: #5 Tight Shading Corset
Based on store visits and online research, the "Corset" line from Etude House comes with blush powder shades, contour and highlighting powder. 

At a glance, I can definitely say this would only work for users who have light to medium complexion.  This won't show up if you have darker complexion.

Etude House says ---
Shading makeup effective for expressing slim face contour. Silicone Coating Powder component smoothly adheres to skin with long-lasting effect. 

Size: 6g

My To-Go-To Eye Makeup Look on Night Out + Contest

You know how everyone has their own "default" makeup look when they want to look good and don't have time to experiment?

Well, I do!  This is my "To-go-to" makeup when the occasion calls for it!  You know, when you don't want to mess up your look and want to look good on both photos and in person!

Semi-smokey eyes+ Bright Lips and dewy and bright face!

Thankfully, this tutorial won't make you feel like you have to spend tons to make yourself feel good!  You don't have to!  Because I've found a palette that includes most of the shades I would use on both myself and clients!  You've probably seen this around because they've been creating buzz both on and offline!

Maybelline The Nudes Palette
Php675.00 (approx $15.00)
Available at SM Beauty Section (Maybelline Counters)

The palette comes with 12 shades to create the perfect "No makeup makeup" look, or maybe a night time smoky eye makeup look that would look great on ANY occasion!  It is a mixture of matte, satin and frost textures.  Let me know if you want a quick swatch but with the perfection of the affordable price range, unfortunately, not all the shadows are highly pigmented so some you may have to go through a couple of times to get the right intensity.

So before I blab further, I will leave the rest of the review in my future post (with swatches) but fo rnow, I picked the dark matte brown shade on the upper right hand side of the palette and gently buff into my lid from light to deeper intensity changing brushes from big fluffy blending brush to small pencil brush.

I failed to mention, I already did my brows using L'Oreal Brow Artist Design Pro.

This proved you don't need gazillion of shadows, instead, you only need to apply certain shadows with light to heavy hand adding more pigments as needed.

AMW Wears: Max FactorX Lipfinity Colour + Gloss in More & More Macchiato

A long-lasting lip color that can last for hours?
You had me at long-lasting there!

Max Factor Lipfinity Colour + Gloss 
I got the shade More & More Macchiato

In one swipe, I was hooked!  I wore this a lot of times because who has the time for retouch when you have so much on your hands?

Max Factor Lipfinity Colour & Gloss is available in nine 9 shades and it comes with colored, shimmering glossy liquid as a topcoat!  You may opt to wear the lip color alone or the gloss alone or both!

The lip color itself is lovely and has high-shine!  Even with my current dry lip condition, I can actually wear just the lip color alone without having to worry about feathering, cracking or flaking!
