EVENT: Mom's Twin's Silver Wedding + Birthday Celebration!!!

Preparing for the wedding & being vain! :P

October 24 is my Mom and my aunt's (her twin) birthday! Tita Delia decided to hold the wedding in that date also so last Monday, October 24, 2011 we made a blast at their wedding anniversary. We all wore silver, gray hues to stick to the motif. :P

I did all the makeup, hair & styling of my sister, Mom and myself. Whew! 3 claps for me... Naaaahh... I enjoyed mix and matching & practicing on them. Laughing in between mistakes, oh what fun!

Now onto the pictures of the event and our vanity moments. :D
















After the sumptuous reception, we went to Shakey's pizza to celebrate Mam's bday. And because we're a bit full, we just ordered a large pizza and some mojos.

Lancôme Exfoliance Clarte

Gel substance with suspended micro-scrubbers. It thoroughly scrubs my lil face especially when I have full make-up on. Whenever I use this, I set aside toning & etcetera to give my face a time to rest. 


For me, its action is a multi-tasker one! I just go right to bed after doing my scrubbing ritual.


I totally love how baby smooth my skin feels after.

Feelings of tightness virtually disappear, thanks to Lancôme’s ultra hydrating formula that’s enriched with Royal Jelly for lasting comfort.

IN2IT Tropicana Eyeshadow Duo


My best friend Queenie lend me this eyeshadow duo for me to write a blog upon. Believe me she has a lot of makeup products she bought when she was in Singapore. Sometimes I borrow them to swatch & test like this one.


The first thing that caught me is the intensity of the shadow. Intensely pigmented, neon-bright & shimmery. The shimmer was well packed, blended & pressed.


You can see how bright these are! Your eyes will scream attention once you pack these on your lids. It can also be soft when slightly applied on lids.


I think IN2IT cosmetics is an answer to our wallet nightmares. Affordable yet good quality!


In my EOTD, I used the yellowish green one and paired it with something purple like Lancome Trendy. ;) 



Bag: Frankie & Johnnie

Much love!

New Face Primer: MAC Prep + Prime Skin


MAC Prep + Prime Skin is described by MAC as "An ultra-fluid lotion formulated with special-effect silicones. Calms and soothes the skin, blots away excess oil, and evens out skin redness. Improves the laydown and application of foundation or powder."


What really intrigued me is the special effect silicones. The packaging itself has those sparkly glitter all around. Everyone who might see it will immediately get the idea. 


True enough, when I first used this, theres a bit of shimmer but not so much. Its just enough to make anyone's skin feel silky smooth and soft.


Here are the swatches and I hope you see the tiny sparkly velvet babies. :D 


I don't use much face primers, just creams. Now that MAC made me happy, I personally welcomed myself to try other face primers. Hihihi :D But this one is the best so far.


I highly suggest this. MAC is a timeless brand. Its beyond awesome and my vocabulary. Exaggerating aside, this primer may not be used in the lip area. See the photo below.


Other beauty bloggers rave about this and I am too! Here are some FOTDs of me wearing it. Can you see it behind the makeup? LOL :P




How about you?
What's your favorite face primer?
XOXO
