Yearbook Pictorial

"You'll only graduate college once in your life, (well, unless you want to proceed to another course after you graduated) so you really want to make your yearbook photo memorable and worth keeping."
That's what my friends who already graduated told me before the yearbook pictorial...
ahhh...your photo on that yearbook of yours, you want it to perfect, right? I didn't have second thoughts on letting my best friend, K-anne, do my hair and make up for me and my friends.
Last January 22, 2012 we were at the HRM building of UIC for our yearbook pictorial.
Zandra's up first :)

Finished look :)

Ate Althea is up! K-anne is putting Etude House's Proof 10 eye primer on her eyelids

According to K-anne, my friend Rhobe reminds her of the Korean actress  Jun Ji-hyun of 'My Sassy Girl'

MY TURN! lol

I am STARTRUCKED! thanks to K-anne

My friend Kate looks so pretty :)

..that was just behind the scenes.
Me and my classmates really had fun during the pictorial and it's all because of K-anne.

We'll never regret our faces when we see it again in 3, 12, or even 20 years from now. make it even more memorable, the photographers let us have a photo with our beautiful make up artist.

Thanks a bunch, K-anne! x

First 2012 product reviews

Wow! My very first blogpost for this 2012...
Are you all excited for the product reviews?
Last December, I've purchased a few make up products

So, I'm not gonna keep you waiting friends, let's start with the eyeliners!
I purchased Fashion21 Eyeliner in White and In2it Waterproof Gel liner in Very black 
 (Left: F21, right: In2it)

 What I really love about the Fashion21 eyeliner is that it's matte, unlike Nichido, they had the shimmery white ones..and this one costs P 80.00

As you can see from my swatch, it's indeed a matte white color.

What I like about it? It's cheap and it's easy to find. You can buy this in any Fashion21 outlets in departments stores or in any Watsons store.
What I don't like about it? It doesn't glide smoothly. It sticks to my lower lashes. It doesn't blend well on my waterline. Therefore, this one is a lot better to use on upper lashes and eyelids.
Will I purchase this product again? No. So that means I'm still in the search for a good yet inexpensive matte white eyeliner >.<

Now, let's move on to the In2it Waterproof gel liner.
Finding for a cheaper alternative to that Bobbi Brown Gel liner? I highly recommend this one :)

For it's price P 379.75, it's already a winner, and this comes with a sharpener also.

What I like about it? It glides smoothly both on upper and lower lashes. It doesn't smudge. It comes in this pencil form that really works for me because that makes it applying the product a lot easier.
What I don't like about it? I find it a bit pricey and since I have very sweaty lids, I need to apply a heavy base on my eyelids before applying this one, unlike the Bobbi Brown one, although my lids are really sweaty it stays for about 10 hours.
Will I purchase this product again? Hmm...possible. But I'm not yet so sure.

Let's get it on with this lippy from Avon

I'm currently in love with this one from Simply Pretty...

The shade is Pampering Pink and if I'm not mistaken this one is only P 135.00

Swatched! It's really a gorgeous pink color.

I highly apologize for my very oily skin LOL :D
I didn't wear any make up the whole day and I've just arrived from this medical mission.
What I like about it? This kind of pink shade is really perfect for morena skin. It looks natural. It doesn't overpower your skin tone and it's long-lasting + moisturizing. No need to apply lip balm before applying this lippy.
What I don't like about it? I have sensitive lips and I find my lips chappy by the end of the day every time I use this product. So my tip for girls who have sensitive lips and wanna try this product, heal your lips by applying lip balm (chapstick/petroleum jelly) before you go to sleep.
Will I purchase this product again? Absolutely!

..and last but not the least
Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily skin

The label says it stays on your skin up to 16 hours and it gives that flawless look + it's lightweight.

Got the one in Medium Beige! Tsk!..not my skin color :(

...and this is how it looks like when it's blended >.<

 As you can see, it does not match my skin color. I'm a bit sad but...
What I like about it? It really stays on my skin the whole day. Even if I go out in the sun, it never fails to look my skin oil-free. I find this product worth it for its price: P 825.00.
What I don't like about it? It dries out easily when you apply it. Therefore, you have to apply moisturizer first before applying this liquid foundation.
Will I purchase this product again? Definitely! I've been looking my whole life for an affordable liquid foundation that suits for my oily skin, but I have to keep in mind to buy the one in Golden Beige or Natural Tan.

That's it for my first 2012 product reviews.
Have you tried any of these products? If so, tell us what you think about them - k*
