Hi AMW Readers! How's your weekend? My December has been super hectic but don't you worry, I still know how to catch up and breathe! Last Friday, it was a fun time with my colleagues for our Christmas Party. We went out to have a nice dinner in a posh looking restaurant and we ended the night with a few drinks! I was expecting for nice music to let loose, but there wasn't any and it was traffic elsewhere so we ended up chatting the night away!
Though I arrived home late, I did not forget my responsibility as a makeup artist and I woke up early on Saturday for a make-up gig! I've done makeup for 4 females and 5 males and it was time constraint so I am giving myself a pat at the back! I will definitely be sharing the makeover soon!
Anyways, when I posted about the Paul & Joe Lipstick C that has a cute cat's head, a lot of the reader comments shared the same sentiments as myself, it was too difficult and heart wrenching to use! But for the love of the blog and for the love of this lipstick shade, I managed to use it and here's the lipstick color on my bare lips! I am quite surprised the shade came out super nice and my lips look moisturized!
Here's my application technique
Back-biting is not an issue here! *lol*
I am actually using a RAW Mineral Concealer brush as a lip brush! I actually like using concealer brushes as lip brushes! I guess I got huge mouth! *laughs*
Anyways, eventhough I am very tired after the makeup gig, the husband and I were able to go to the mall for last minute Christmas Shopping. I've passed by Watsons Store and I haven't been out much lately so there are several things I've seen that needed some reporting, sorry for the blurry "ninja" shots, I am not a good "phone camera" photographer if I'm panicking! hehehe
I've seen a new BB Cream brand around called Pure Beauty Soothing BB Cream, I think it's made in Korea! Anyone actually bought this and tried this? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Oh yeah, you can see display of Mentholatum Lip Icel, which is one of my favorite lip balm brand (in lemon flavor)! I used to purchase them in Hong Kong and in Taiwan, I'm so happy we have it down here and the price is really affordable!!!
Since I will be doing make-up for a couple of guys, we all know how hard working their oil glands are, I've decided to hoard on oil blotters! I purchased the regular Clean & Clear Face Blotters, but I've seen a lot of new brands coming up and I did not hesitate hoarding on them because they are quite inexpensive! Bought the Finess Brand Oil Blotters with really chic and girly packaging! Will review them soon!
AND! To Maybelline BB Cream lovers out there, I know this may be old news but isn't it great that the inexpensive BB Cream can still go on sale? Maybelline BB Cream goes from Php240.00 (approx $5.58) to Php199.00 (approx $4.60)! 20% off sale! So if you plan to purchase this, HURRY and save up the Php40.00!
*sigh* Sunday's almost over! But it's Christmas next weekend! My brother is also coming home for Christmas Vacation so it'll be a wonderful reunion!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Do not forget to food trip ok?
