Contact Lens Review: Sparkle Hello Kitty in Black

Hi! I know I'm not really that much of a contact lens expert since I'm not really fund of collecting them, but I'm gonna have a review on this one for those who are interested. A Facebook message from Amz of aMz Blog just made my day - I won her birthday giveaway! Amazing prizes were in store of course and one of them was a pair of Sparkle Hello Kitty Contact lens. I got the one in black.

Diameter: 14.5 mm (Dolly eyes)

oooh~! cute Hello Kitty Pattern! I was kinda nervous about the design. Might be too obvious when I wear it, but it turned out to be unnoticeable after all.

They're kinda grayish when used with flash on photos.

See what I mean? Kawaii ne~

My verdict:
  • It's very comfortable to wear. Doesn't irritate my eyes at all.
  • The Diameter size is not a problem. I do prefer 14.5 mm diameter when it comes to dolly eye contacts. Some people just don't though.
  • Dries easily when I wear them. So, always make sure to bring your contact lens solution with you. 

...and that's all for this review.
If you've already tried this kind of contact lens, please do let me know. I'd really appreciate that.

'till next post! - k*

Makeup Geek eye shadows review + swatches

Hi everyone! How's October so far? 
Expect that I won't be blogging much for the next three months because right now I'm living in a dormitory for our in-house review which will start tomorrow. I'm loving the fact that I don't have any roommate right now, but the wi-fi here kinda suck a bit.

Anyways, let's move on with the Makeup Geek eye shadows. I did blog about the surprise that I received from Makeup Geek last Thursday and I promised that I'll be posting reviews, swatches, and looks from them. So, here's my review of the Makeup Geek 8-Eyeshadow Starting Kit.

Each eye shadows were placed on pans because these are only refills. These refills can be placed on Z Palettes.

So the starting kit were composed of 8 gorgeous eye shadows that compliments well with every skin tone. Namely, they are (refer to the photo below): Purely Naked, Shimma Shimma, Unexpected, Glamorous (from top left to right), Cocoa Bear, Mocha, Purple Rain, and Corrupt (from bottom left to right).

Photo with flash

Photo w/out flash
  • Purely Naked - Soft shimmery nude
  • Shimma shimma - Shimmery highlight
  • Unexpected - Light and subtle pink matte purple blend
  • Glamorous - Bronzy, shimmery gold
  • Cocoa Bear - Matte golden brown
  • Mocha - Matte warm medium brown
  • Purple Rain - Deep but subtle matte purple
  • Corrupt - Intense matte black with small bit of sparkle
So, here are my swatches:
In order top row from left to right

In order bottom row from left to right

What I Love about the eye shadows:

  • They blend well on my skin tone and they last for a very long time on my eyelids.
  • Highly pigmented.
  • I'm having a strong feeling that some of the eye shadows are very good dupes of the Urban Decay Naked palette.
What I don't love about the eye shadows:
  • Not available in the Philippines. These eye shadows are available only in the US but they ship anywhere in the world affordably.
  • Not-so-affordable. This starting kit costs US$ 45.00 (about Php 1,890.00) and each eye shadow costs US$ 5.99 (about Php 251.50). But all I can say is that they are really worth of your money - HANDS DOWN! 
I'm very happy with these eye shadows. They may be a bit expensive but quality-wise, they're excellent! My favorites on this kit are Purely Naked, Unexpected, and Corrupt. Purely Naked is just that perfect eyelid color if your want something natural for your day-to-day wear, and Unexpected as well. The only difference is that Unexpected brings a hint of color which makes your eyes lovely. Really matches well with brown eyes. And Corrupt is really pigmented even in just a light tap on the eye shadow, Marlena's definitely right about that. 

Purple Rain and Mocha are very good crease colors as well.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 :)))

I had really fun playing with these eye shadows. I'll be posting looks with these so make sure you tune in to that.

Mail Surprise from Makeup Geek

Wow! Something arrived on our mail today.
When I got home from SM this afternoon, my uncle told me that I've got a package from the US.

YES! It's from Make Up Geek!!! :)))

 I didn't expect that the package will arrive as soon as I expected. They mailed the package last September 27, and then they arrived today. Now that was fast! Hands down to Jena, I owe this girl a lot!

I'm such a huge fan of Marlena, she's the YouTube beauty guru and also the CEO of MakeUp Geek. 
At first they started with MUG (MakeUp Geek) brushes and now they are expanding their brand to cosmetics. The very first product they released are the MakeUp Geek eye shadows and that time they were still experimenting. They even ask their fans for names of their eye shadows which I find really cool.

Anyways, when I opened my package I was in awe...

I didn't expect it to be the MakeUp Geek 8-Shadow Starter Kit!
These were the very first eye shadows they released last year.

For more info about the product, you can watch this video:

Anyways, I'll be posting reviews and swatches next week about these eye shadows and some looks that I've created with them, yeah - I played with these eye shadows right after I opened the package.
So please do watch out for that :)

Fall Trend: Brown Smokey Eyes (mini tutorial)

Hi ladies I'm back! Well, not for too long 'cause you see I'm still busy with my board exam review.
It's the second 'ber' month of the year 2012 and I've noticed ever since last September, Fall trends have already started in some of the beauty blogs and fashion blogs that I followed. Although we may not have four season here in our country but we still tend to follow the seasonal trends all around the globe.
Whenever I hear the phrase "Fall Trend", I think of coats and scarfs, and for the colors, there's browns and plums.

Anyways, here's a mini tutorial for y'all. I haven't been wearing make up for about a month now due to my ongoing acne treatment, but I miss wearing it so badly that I tend to wear just simply eye make up and some lippy. I don't put on foundation, concealer, or blushies, just an ordinary face powder.

I'm so obsessed with BROWN SMOKEY EYES! I find it really sexy actually. It's my go-to look for the past few days now. It's really not that heavy to look and perfect for day-to-day wear. It's also perfect for different types of skin tone, whether you're fair, dark, or tan, you can easily pull it off.

I just used 3 eye shadows on this look and all of them are matte ones from my NYX Box of Smokey Look Collection (S114) palette.

1 - for the eyelids; 2 - crease; 3 - highlight

So, let's get started!

  1. Prime your eyelids using your eye shadow primer. Apply it also on your brow bone and below your bottom lashes.
  2. Using a brown eye pencil, line you upper lashes and the top of your lashes. And don't forget to put also below your bottom lashes.
step. #2

3. Smudge. Smudge. SMUDGE!
4. Apply a light brown eye shadow all over your eyelid using a flat brush. Don't forget also to apply some on your bottom lashes.
step #4

5. Use a dark brown eye shadow and apply it on you crease using a fluffy brush, and blend it inwards. Apply also below the bottom lashes.
step #5

6. Using a light eye shadow, preferably 2 shades lighter than your skin tone, apply some of it to your tear duct and brow bone using a fluffy brush. This will serve as your highlight.
step #6

7. Use a black liquid eye liner and apply it thinly on your upper lashes just to emphasize your lashes for a more dramatic look.

8. Curl your lashes and apply two coats of your favorite volume mascara and you're good to go!

..and TA-DA!

I'm like laughing out loud 'cause I literally did NOT edit my photos for you to see how bad my skin is right now. I may have edited the lighting, but not my face :p

Since I'm really digging for the fall trend, I also applied that trend on my lips. 
I'm using NICHIDO LIP LINER in LP04 'ROSETTE', and to top that off, I used LAURA MERCIER LIP GLOSS in PLUM NOIR.

and that's it for this look.

So what do you think, my gorgeous followers? I'd really appreciate it if you'd post your comments below.
I'm daring you all ladies to try this one. :)
I know my skin is really in a bad condition right now. Currently suffering with acne at the moment. Maybe because I'm somewhat stressed with the review, but don't worry lads, I can handle it.

 and oh! Don't forget to join my giveaway. It ends on October 19th :)

 'till next post! - k*

The GYARU Experiment

Today I was in the mood to experiment. I realized that I have dolly contacts, dyed hair, falsies, and cute outfits. So, why not try to be a gyaru for today?
Gyaru refers to Japanese fashion. They're like real-life dolls. I'm a fan of Tsubasa Masuwaka who is huge in the Japanese fashion industry. 

I'm pretty sure if you dress up gyaru style here in the Philippines, people will notice you. So yeah, today I was an object who was definitely the center of attention. 
People noticed me and I don't really care what they think or say because all in my head was experimenting, and I don't like to be the center of attention anyway :p
and this is the look...

I did curl my hair and tried a cute hairstyle >.<

My eye make up :)
with flash

w/out flash

I'm wearing my Princess Mimi contacts and my NOYL 5P lash both in my upper and lower lashes.

  • Huroo Huroo Highlight Pop Twist Color Base
  • Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Medium Beige
  • Missha MISA Cho Bo Yang BB Cream
  • Etude House Surprise Essence Concealer in no. 2
  • Nichido powder blush in Peace Glow
  • Victoria Secret Very Sexy Blushing Cream Duo in Heat
  • Etude House Proof 10 eye primer
  • NYX Nude on Nude S119 palette
A - apply on eyelids as base; mix B and C - apply on the crease; E - apply on eyelids as eye color; D - highlight on brow bone; F - highlight on tear duct; G - apply on lower lashes.
  • Nichido eye pencil in Brown
  • Dolly Wink Volume Mascara
  • Dolly Wink liquid eyeliner in Black
  • Fashion21 eyeliner pencil in White
  • Etude House Surprise Essence Concealer in no. 2
  • Lip colors from NYX Nude on Nude S119 palette
*Mix the last 2 colors on the right.

  • Candy Doll lip gloss in Strawberry Milk
As you noticed, gyaru look should be flawless, that's why I used a lot of products on my skin just to cover blemishes and scars on my face. I also used my Victoria Secret Blushing Cream Duo as highlight for the cheeks and a light blushing powder. 
The eyes should be very noticeable. This can be attained by using dolly eye contacts and white eyeliner to make your eyes appear bigger and doll-like. There's no need to use dark eye shadows. As much as possible use light and shimmery eye shadows. And don't forget to put on lashes :p
And for the lips, apply concealer first before putting on a lip color. Use a light pink color for the lips and top it off with a lip gloss.

kawaii ne? (^.^)v

...and that's all for this look!
I could really LOL for this photo above. Just tryin' to be cute and all? HAHA!
So what do you think? Did I pass on my experiment? 
Anyways, I do hope you'd try this gyaru look. It never hurts to try new things you know, you might discover a new side of you ;)

'till next post! - k*

The Summer Chick with Shiseido

Hello gorgeous followers!
So, here's another look using the Shiseido eye shadow quad that I did mention on my previous blogpost.
I know summer is almost over now that I've come up with an idea for a summer look. The palette's colors are so perfect for summer.
But hey! You can wear these eye shadow colors anytime of the year, right?

The eye make up:

let's take a closer look:
I know! My skin is not really good right now due to stress LOL.

  • Huroo Huroo Highlight Pop Twist Color Base
  • Missha MISA Cho Bo Yang BB cream
  • Shiseido The Make Up cream foundation in Natural Fair Ivory
  • Fanny Serrano cake foundation in Toffee
  • Nichido Blush on powder in Sunkissed
  • Etude House Proof 10 eye primer
  • Shiseido The Make Up Silky eye shadow quad in Dusk to Dawn

B - for the eyelids
C - for the crease
  • Nichido eye pencil in Brown
  • Dolly Wink Volume Mascara
  • ELF Studio Cream eyeliner in Black
  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo
...and that's it for this look!
I find this look very refreshing. The eye shadows used are very light, silky and shimmery, that's why I prefer a bold matte lip color for this look.

Stay pretty as always, ladies!
