Thank God I was given a little time to blog.
I’d like to share with you guys my usual *makeup* routine before going to school. But that would be sooo long and boring! So I decided to share this instead.
- St. Ives Apricot Apricot Face Wash (not shown in the picture)
I soooo love this facial wash, I swear by it!
- Avon Naturals Toner (not shown in the picture)
This toner makes my pores tighter, making my oily skin bearable during freakin’ hot days.
Now let’s go with the photo:
from Left to Right
1. MYRA E Vita Glow Tinted Facial Moisturizer
I use this as my moisturizer and primer. When applied you could see some glitters around your face, this glitters will give you a natural glowing skin. Which I personally do not like but upon applying concealer it disappears so I don’t care much about it.
2. Dollface Concealer #3
I bought this last September 4, 2011 when me and my boyfriend went to the 4th Phil-Cosmetics Expo.
I am soooo much in love with this concealer! I love it, I love it, I love it! My 475php was super worth it!
3. Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Loose Powder
I’ve been using this since March and as usual Maybelline never gave me disappointments when it comes to their foundations. With the help of my stippling brush, I can spread this out evenly. Giving me a natural healthy skin look.
4. Maybelline Pressed Powder
One thing you guys have to know is that, girls have to seal their makeups with a pressed powder to absorb the remaining oil. That’s how pressed powder are for. Well, I believe I am *hiyang* with maybelline products that is why I love them. I never had issues with them so far.
5. Ellana MultiPurpose Powder “INSPIRATION”
I so love this! I use this for my eyes, but I do love it more when being applied onto my cheeks. It gives a glowing natural look most especially when sun strikes. It pretty much absorbs oil as most mineral makeups are being known for!
Have you noticed? I am into minerals. It’s mainly because mineral makeups are best for oily skin types. And so far, I know that, that is really true!
Hope you get something from this post. Let me know your thoughts pleaseee!
I’ll be back with a review, pinky promise!

4th Phil-Cosmetics Expo :)
Until now my legs are kinda shaky HAHA :) it’s because I used my wedge sandals the whole day yesterday.
Me and my boyfriend went to the last day of the 4th Phil-Cosmetics Expo *Sept.4,2011 - Sunday*, I really wanted to make an excuse to my classes since Friday to visit the Expo,but silly me I don’t know how to get there alone. The only time my boyfriend can accompany me is Sunday so there we were.
We failed to find the place of ELLANA MINERALS so we decided to went first at the 5th flr for the Expo. I was panicking a bit when we cannot find where DOLLFACE’s spot is, hehe I was really excited kasi so baka umiral nanaman pagka-duling ko. HAHAHA kidding aside, when we finally found it, I recognized Miss Pearl (the owner) I know who she was because I saw her pictures online with other famous cosmetics shop owners and gurus. OMG she was English Speaking! Well, I’m not really fluent in English so I was kinda shy to answer her question of what shade of the concealer I want. Thanks to the research and reviews I watched and read I answered her right “Ahmm, shade no. 3 please :)” She gave me that and asked again for the next shade that might also fit me. But in the end I still chose Shade no.3 *Thanks to Ms. Say of youtube, she was right with the shade she recommended* :)
*Finally! A picture of my OWN DOLLFACE CONCEALER* :))
HAHAHA My boyfriend teased me to buy more but I really set my mind to only buy an individual concealer from DOLLFACE this time. ‘Coz the brush set and palette can wait. Maybe I’ll buy them before Christmas if my Budget Issues would be regulated. LOL :))
The place was small and I was a bit disappointed :( Because Only a few, cosmetic brands joined this year. Another stall that caught my attention was DIGITAL TRAINCASE their stall was fully loaded by NYX cosmetics, Charm Brushes and lots of cute stuffs. The Pink Retractable Brush was a STEAL! It was very cute and soft but the price was
heart breaking :(600php, fu*cking budget constraints!:(( I did not buy any NYX stuff because I know where to buy them in a cheaper price. The only down side to the shop I’m referring to that have cheaper prices for NYX Cosmetics was you have to wait 2-4 weeks, just like what I’m doing right now. :))
*here’s the very adorable kabuki brush I was raving for* credits to google
*DIGITAL TRAINCASE’s BOOTH* credits to google
After the long walks and with the help of the security guard we finally saw where ELLANA MINERALS is! HURRAY!!! PARTY PARTY!! :)) haha Well, I’m prepared, I know my targets. I scanned the items one by one and I was amazed and disappointed at the same time to some shades I want, they were either too bright or too bare. both The primer and finishing powder does not have any 1G tester, that was sad :(( I really just like to try them. So, at the end of the day, the only things that were crossed out to my list were the Multipurpose powder in “INSPIRATION” shade and powder blush in “HAPPINESS”. Now I’m really thinking of sending my P80 for a sampler pack from their website.
*I love my INSPIRATION and HAPPINESS* :)
Before going home, I realized that I still have money to splurge! This time for a decent brush. So, we went to WATSONS to buy myself a N32 Slanted Blusher Brush. :) I was startled by its softness it was comparable with the kabuki brush I was eyeing for in Digital Traincase’s booth.
*all the things I purchased! :) AWW, I LIKE all of them!!*
*Sorry for my face, LOL. I still managed to take pictures of myself kahit super HAGGARD na ng face ko kagabi. SUPER TIRED FACE? :))
I’m so excited to make a review about the awesome things I bought! Just let me finish these BUSY DAYS and *HOPEFULLY* I might also make my own swatch of my new lippies when they arrive. :*
To end this up, I would like to thank with all my heart my Boyfriend for accompanying me and enduring my rants and selfish acts. I love you soo much! :) :*
*Sorry for my typos and grammatical errors I made this while my mind was still filled with burdens from school* :)
