Product Review: HOLLYWOOD STYLE WHITENING PEEL OFF MASK

4 comments

Hi everyone!

I have another Hollywood Style Whitening product to share with you. One of Hollywood Style's whitening line is the peel off mask and I love it! Like their other products, this contains 100% veggie ingredients. It is an extra strength formula that has mulberries which is well known for skin brightening properties. It also contains licorice which helps bleach dark spots and it also contains arbutin which is great for skin discoloration problems. This peel off mask peels away dead skin cells and will leave your skin brighter, softer, and smoother. I've mentioned in my Hollywood Style Whitening Face Wash review that all of the products from this whitening line make my skin extra soft and smooth like that of a baby! It's unbelievable! :)

Hollywood Style Whitening Peel Off Mask is a clear, thick gel in consistency. It does smell a bit strong and has like a sour scent but it wouldn't bother you that much.



***

How to use the Hollywood Style Whitening Peel Off Mask?

After cleansing your face, apply the peel off mask evenly and carefully because you should avoid the eye area (which has a very thin and sensitive skin), lips, and hairline. If you accidentally dabbed a bit of the peel off mask to the eye area, around the lips or the hairline areas, I suggest you wipe it off while it is still wet because once it dries up, it will hurt like hell when you peel it off. So be careful, promise? As for me, I always avoid the temples of my face because I have very narrow temples. If I apply the peel off mask on that area of my face, it will reach my sideburns and I don't want that to happen. :) Continuing on, apply the mask thickly and a bit thicker on the edges so that it would be a lot easier for you to peel it off later on.

The first time I used it, I didn't know that you should apply it thickly. I applied just one layer because I was saving the product! Haha! But I learned that you shouldn't be afraid of using a generous amount of any of your skin care products because it might not work as greatly as it should. That's why when I first tried this and just applied a thin layer, I had a hard time peeling the mask off. It torn into pieces and it's very difficult to peel the edges. So, you should apply a thick layer on your face so that it wouldn't tear up or break. It will be easier to peel off, too.



Once you peeled the mask off your face, wipe off any bits of residue of the mask on your face with a damp washcloth. I just use a wet tissue. After that, you can proceed to your next skin care steps like toning and then moisturizing. Use the peel off mask once or twice a week only.



***

When you peeled the mask off your face, you will immediately feel the softness and smoothness of your skin. Your skin will become more supple and will look fairer. If you use it religiously, you will really notice that your complexion will be whiter and brighter. If you really want it to work better, use it with the Whitening Face Wash. :)

Wet N Wild Megalast Lipsticks in Mauve Outta Here and Dollhouse Pink

8 comments


Hi everyone!

I know almost all of you already know about Wet N Wild Megalast lipsticks because they're not actually new. However, it's my first time to try out these lipsticks and thanks to Stuff N' Shop for sending me two WnW Megalast lipsticks! :) Aileen, the owner of Stuff N' Shop sent me the shades Mauve Outta Here and Dollhouse Pink. She even added a blushable creme stick by NYC and a Santa Claus pen! Hihi! :) I was so glad that one of the shades is Mauve Outta Here because I've been meaning to buy it because I thought the color looks really pretty.





The shade Mauve Outta Here is actually more of a pink color than mauve in person. It reminds me of NYX Matte Lipstick in Natural. Their shades are almost the same. I love it! It's great for everyday makeup looks and I think it will suit any skin color.



The shade Dollhouse Pink is a barbie-pink color which will really catch people's attention because of its brightness. This shade naman reminds me of NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Dolly Pink. :) I love this lip color! Now this one, I don't think anyone can pull it off that easily. But if you have the confidence and if you are comfortable to wear bright lip colors such as this one, then that would be awesome because it'll fit you like a glove! :) This is the kind of colors that I really love to wear.



These Wet N Wild Megalast lipsticks are very pigmented. I have swatched almost all of their shades whenever I visit Wet N Wild counters. Finally, I now own two shades. :) One thing that I noticed about these lipsticks is that it can be a bit drying on the lips but if you moisturized your lips prior to applying the lipsticks, then it will be just fine. The first time that I tried it kasi, I forgot to moisturize my lips so never neglect your lip balms. Regardless what brand of lipsticks or type you are going to use. These lipsticks are matte, by the way. Another thing that I noticed is that the light shades might accentuate your dry lips. When I tried the Dollhouse Pink, my lips are super dry and after applying the lipstick, the dry skin and cracks are really showing off. So, I exfoliated my lips first using my toothbrush to remove the dry skin and have a smoother lips then re-applied the Dollhouse Pink and it was awesome! :)

I love, love, love these lipsticks! The packaging also passed my standard and taste. It's sturdy enough plus the lipstick bullet is long so this will last you for quite a while. These are also available in many different shades so go ahead and get crazy in choosing what you like! I think I'll buy the shade Sugar Plum Fairy next time. :)

The mall price of the Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick is PhP 299.00. Stuff N' Shop sells these lippies for only PhP 200.00! Add Stuff N' Shop on Facebook if you want to purchase the WnW megalast lipsticks and if you want to check out their other products. :)

FOTD (September 20, 2012): Not-You-Ordinary-Barbie / Megaworld Event

2 comments

Hi everyone!

Yesterday we went back to GB5 for Mama's 4th therapy then after that, we went straight to The Peninsula Manila for Megaworld's launching event. I tried the sock curls and I loved it! The night before yesterday, I curled my hair using my Papa's clean socks and I slept with them tied on my hair. When I woke up, I showered, did my makeup and then I released the curls and oh my! I was really impressed at how the socks really gave my hair wonderful curls! I didn't know about the Megaworld event until I woke up and I thought my curly hair was perfect for the event! Jackpot! Haha! :) It's like I had really prepared for it.

For the makeup, I used a new foundation and for the first time, I used a high-end HD foundation. I used Kryolan HD Micro Foundation Mattifying Liquid and boy it was awesome! I didn't even set my foundation with powder, except the eye area because  prepped it for my eye makeup. FYI, I'm not the kind who doesn't set her foundation and likes the dewy finish. I like my foundation matte but not flat, of course. I have combination-oily skin kasi. Anyway, this foundation is amazing because it gives a flawless finish and it dries matte! I'll do a review about this soon!

I did a very subtle smokey eyes and paired it with barbie-pink lips. Some of the products that I used in this look are new and it's the first time that I've tried them and I loved them all!

Hi everyone!

Yesterday, we went back to RaphaHealth at GB5 for my Mama's 3rd treatment/therapy. You might be thinking why do I still have the urge to glam up and all when my Mother is undergoing a treatment. Well, her case is not really that serious. The treatment is just to keep her healthier and avoid future sickness since she's not getting any younger.

Anyway, I just want to show you yesterday's FOTD. It's nothing too fancy but I just want to share it because yesterday as I started to do my makeup, my brother handed me a new package that had just been delivered in our house. It's from Stuff N' Shop! Aileen of Stuff N' Shop sent me two Wet N Wild lipsticks and a cream blush stick by NYC. I was happy and excited that's why I decided to use the items already because I couldn't wait any longer to try them out! I used one of the lipsticks and the blush stick.


It's a very simple and easy look!

PRODUCTS USED:

FACE
4U2 Dream Girl Forever Liquid Foundation
Garnier BB Light Eye Roll On
Fashion 21 Loose Powder No.1
NYC Blushable Creme Stick
E.L.F. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder

EYEBROWS
In2It Waterproof Eyebrow Colour
Ever Bilena Kleopatra eyebrow pencil

EYES

Nichido Mineral Kohl Pencil in Onyx
Holika Holika Magic Pole Waterproof mascara

LIPS
Human Nature 100% Natural Lip Balm in Peppermint
Wet N Wild Megalast lipstick in Mauve Outta Here





I thought the Mauve Outta Here lipstick is going to be real mauvey in color but it's more of a pink shade. Nonetheless, I still like it. I thought the color is really pretty!


That's it for today! Talk soon!

My Current Everyday Makeup Look! (School Makeup)

5 comments

Hi everyone!

Ever since I started studying again, I got used in doing quick and makeup looks and wearing minimal makeup. Our school is a bit conservative and although it's not prohibited to wear makeup at school, I still go for a very simple look and as much as possible I use just a few products because less makeup is perfect for school. But there's one thing that I still wear no matter how disturbing it may look and no matter what people will say... that is my uber bold lips. I love wearing bold lips because it can make one's head turn. That's why in school, even though I wear a clean and simple makeup look, I still make sure that I'm wearing a lipstick that has a loud color or a color that could really catch people's attention. ;-) My current favorites are Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten and L.A. Colors Lipstick in Amethyst.

My current favorite everyday makeup look is clean eyes paired with bold lips. My face makeup only includes a sheer layer of foundation, powder to set and blush. But most of the time, I skip foundation and just conceal my dark spots and other imperfections on my face with Snoe S Skin Stem Cell Sunblock cream used as a makeup base. I'm telling ya! The stem cell sunblock cream by Snoe is heaven! I can go out wearing only the stem cell sunblock cream and powder on top. It really brightens and gives a healthy glow on my face. You can read my review on the S Skin Stem Cell Sunblock cream here.


How to achieve my current favorite makeup look:

REGULAR SCHOOL DAYS

1. After washing and toning your face, apply Snoe S Skin SPF 30 Stem Cell Sunblock Cream as your moisturizer, sunscreen, and makeup base.
2. Conceal dark spots and other imperfections on your face using E.L.F. Cover All Concealer or L.A. Girls Pro Conceal HD High Definition Concealer. Use Garnier BB Light Instant Fairness Eye Roll On to cover dark under eye circles and to add instant brightness around the eye area.
3. Apply Herbench Paint Box Prettywhenpinched Lip and Cheek Tint along the apples of your cheeks. Apply a little bit more than usual because the powder might fade out the color when you set it later on.
4. Set with 4U2 Dream Girl Lovelight BB Powder SPF 15.
5. Sweep on E.L.F. Natural Radiance Blush in Flushed to have that beautiful glow on your face. Contouring is optional. You can use E.L.F. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder.
6. Redefine your eyebrows using In2It Waterproof Eyebrow Colour for a neat but natural look.
7. Curl your eyelashes and coat with your favorite mascara. Mine are Holika Holika Magic Pole Waterproof mascara, Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express mascara, Saizen Long and Curl Comb Mascara,  and Etude House OhM'ye Lash.
8. Wear your attention-grabbing lipstick/lip liner/lip gloss! My favorites are Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten and L.A. Colors Lipstick in Amethyst!
9. Set your makeup with Holika Holika Aqua Splash Cooling Mist!

WHEN-I-WANT-TO-DOLL-UP SCHOOL DAYS

1. Use Snoe S Skin SPF 30 Stem Cell Sunblock Cream still as your moisturizer, sunscreen, and makeup base.
2. Take your Garnier BB Light Instant Fairness Eye Roll On and conceal dark under eye circles.
3. Apply a sheer layer of 4u2 Dream Girl Forever Liquid Foundation. I love using a stippling brush in applying my foundation because it gives a very flawless finish. I usually skip concealer when I already applied my foundation because the foundation alone can already cover up the redness of my face and my dark spots.
4. Dab on your Herbench Paint Box Prettywhenpinched lip and cheek tint along the apples of your cheeks. Remember, add a little bit more than usual.
5. Set everything with 4u2 Dream Girl Lovelight BB Powder SPF 15. Sometimes I use my Fashion 21 Loose Powder.
6. Contour your face using E.L.F. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder then sweep on E.L.F. Natural Radiance Blush in Flushed to add more color and glow on your face!
7. Fix your eyebrows using In2It Waterpoof Eyebrow Colour. You can use whatever eyebrow products you desire but brow powders give the most natural-looking eyebrows.
8. Line your eyes using a black eye pencil like Nichido Mineral Kohl Pencil in Onyx to give life to your eyes.
9. Curl your eyelashes and coat with your favorite mascara. When I really want to look all dolled-up, what I use is my Holika Holika Magic Pole waterproof mascara  or my Maybelline mascaras because those mascaras really do a great job in lengthening, volumizing, and separating my eyelashes.
10. Set your makeup with Holika Holika Aqua Splash Cooling Mist and you are all set! :)





FINAL WORDS:
Minimal makeup is perfect for school. There are more appropriate days to wear your full makeup. I think you can skip some of the steps in my current favorite makeup look but the most important step that you shouldn't neglect ever is applying concealer. This will help to make you look fresh and wide awake. Concealer is really a girl's best friend, makeup-wise. The next most important step for me is grooming and redefining your eyebrows. Trust me, it will make a huge difference. It always does.

If you want to use the same products that I have mentioned above, here's my tip --- Herbench Prettywhenpinched and E.L.F. Natural Radiance Blush in Flushed go perfectly together! You will really look flushed and you'll have that healthy glow on your face! :)

If you do not want to wear eye makeup but still want to look dolled-up, wear a bold and striking lip color. If you are not a fan of loud lip colors, focus on your blush. Just be sure to blend it very well to avoid looking like a clown! ;-)


That's it! I hope you find this post helpful. What's your favorite everyday makeup look and what products do you usually use? Please share!!! :-D

Talk soon!

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)

Customized Perfumes by BC Fragrance

Leave a Comment
https://www.facebook.com/bcfragrance

Hi everyone!

Tonight, I came home from school and I was surprised with a package from BC Fragrance! As I entered our living room, Mama pointed the package sitting on the center table. I was soooo excited to open it when they told me that it was from BC Fragrance.



I really appreciate how they even bother to tie ribbons on each boxes! Ms. Bernadette Lim, one of the owners of BC Fragrance, sent me two perfumes. I met Bernadette on the last day of the 5th Phil-Cosmetics Expo that took place at Megatrade Hall 1, Megamall. Mr. Sam Atun of Glosons' Tradings was the one who introduced me to Bernadette. We had a short talk that afternoon and when I asked her if they have an Issey Miyake for men inspired scent (because that's my boyfriend's favorite), she told me that she would send me the perfume instead. She also asked what scent I like and she listed my name and even my boyfriend's name. I thought that the reason why she also got my boyfriend's name was just because for their records or something but after seeing the perfume tonight, I now know why. She was already planning to give us the perfumes with customized bottles! I love, love, love it! :)




Isn't it cool? And I also love how they wrote almost everything on the label. Like the perfume number, ingredients, and they even wrote who compounded the perfume and when it was compounded. Awesome!

I, my Mama, my cousins, sisters, and boyfriend love BC Fragrance because the scents are not strong unlike other perfumes which can hurt your nose. Their perfumes which are inspired by high-end perfumes are amazing because the scents are really close to the authentic ones. And did I mention that the scent lasts for hours? :)

BC Fragrance is owned by the sisters Bernadette and Caroline (both are fragrance specialists), that's why it's BC. I thought it stands for Bing Castro. Ahaha! Just kidding! ;-) BC Fragrance started on 2009 and they now carry more than 300 fragrances. They also offer fragrances for your home, for your personal care, household fragrances and industrial fragrances. My Mama actually bought a pillow mist during the 5th Phil-Cosmetics Expo and I love it because it is peppermint and it is definitely relaxing!

You gotta check out and try their perfumes and other products if you haven't because they are actually made with high quality ingredients. BC Fragrances would also be perfect as gifts especially now that the Holidays are just around the corner. Your friends and loved ones will surely love and appreciate it when they see their names on the perfume bottle itself. ;-)
