It's already been a month since i tried Mac Show Orchid Lipstick, i'm so lazy to blog last December because of the holiday preparations. Anyway here i go, i saw someone online selling her Mac Show Orchid Lipstick, since i'm trying to collect lipsticks i bought it right after searching for different swatches, plus i'm a sucker for bright pinks !

i  failed to apply it properly haha

The color is a dark hot pink with blue undertones that's why i didn't like it, it's already close to a violet color on my lips, pigmentation is good, it didn't totally dried out my lips, lip cracks are not that emphasized either and lasts about few hours on my lips. It wasn't the color that i'm hoping for and it's not the ideal hot pink color for me so i decided to let it go. Results may vary for all of us, i may not like it but you might do though.

* Not drying
* Long lasting

* Not my cup of  tea

After a long fight with my hubby he agreed to shop with me as a peace offering lol ! I was lemming for make up forever's aqua eyes pencil liner but i ended up getting few guerlain cosmetics instead and one of them is Guerlain's terracotta touch.

left w/ teracota touch, right w/ other concealer

I got the terracotta touch in blondes shade, the shade is quite beige with gold  iridescence and i think is perfect for nc20-30 skin tones, If you have super dark under eyes i think this is not for you but you can also give it a shot since testing it at all Guerlain counters is free of charge, just to remind you that even i love this concealer/highlighter pen, this didn't conceal everything but it definitely did brightened up my under eye area that's why i fell in love with it, i love it even more when the lights hit it ! Definitely back-up worthy.!

* Has brightening effect

* Expensive

Sorry i grabbed the image from google, i already sold mine way back because i hated it but i will review it for your reference. My shade in Estee Lauder Double Wear by is sand (nc20-25 in mac). This liquid foundation lasts about 8 hours on my face but it's not completely transfer resistant and sweat resistant.

luckily i uploaded  this at facebook way back

The thing that i hated about it the most is when i gently wiped my nose it got so cakey and patchy, even my hubby told me it looks so ugly and it would be better if i just wipe everything off, gosh i was so embarassed. It offers medium to full coverage but it makes your blemishes look even more obvious, has very matte finish and it's really heavy on the face like you have a mask on even with sheer application, i broke out even more with this foundation so i decided to just let it go. Take note that this may work for you and not for me so if you like it then give it a chance.

*full coverage
*doesn't clog pores

*feels heavy on the face

Price:1500 i think
Will i buy again?: No

Mustela Skin Refresher and Cleansing Milk

Hi everyone how's your new year so far ? Got your New Year's resolution planned out ? Well, i have and one of them is to invest more on skin care than make-ups. I've been quite a cheapskate when it comes to make-up removers, what iv'e only used before were extra virgin coconut oil and baby wipes, EVCO followed by baby wipes to wipe everything off removed my make-up thoroughly but it feels oh so heavy and icky.

I bought these Mustela products for my kids, but i got curious with the name cleansing milk and skin refresher it sounds good for the skin, when i went home i immediately tried it to remove my make-up and i was impressed ! It was like a baby skin restorer in a bottle ! My skin was cleansed and it felt smooth, supple, soft and glowy, the minute i tried it i just want to buy more but since it's available locally no need for me to rush. When i feel lazy to wash my face in the morning this is what i also use, no breakouts with this babies since it's indeed hypoallergenic. The moment it reaches half way down i will surely buy 2 back-ups for us.

the naked sisters

Here's my review about Urban Decay Naked Palette, sorry i blogged about the Naked Palette 2 first. I only got this palette last November, actually i have no lemmings or plans to buy any eye shadow stuffs since it's really not my thing well okay i'll be honest i don't know how to use it properly ha ha ha, but when i tried the instructions from the Guerlain eye shadow palette i was hooked to eye shadows, i love the different looks whether i like to play with bright angelic eyes or dark sultry smokey eyes. After a week my friend is offering her Naked Palette to me and of course i said yes, when i got it my initial reaction was "what's so great with this ?", but when i swatched it everything changed it's so pretty and very pigmented, i immediately browsed for some tutorials in youtube and i fell in love with it even more. Scroll down for swatches.


I adore all the shades in this palette and some of my favorites are half-baked, virgin, naked and buck. Virgin is perfect for brow bone and tear duct highlighting, buck is perfect for the crease plus it's my perfect brow powder, and naked is perfect for nose contouring. I love this palette so much and i hate myself for being a late bloomer about it. I highly recommend it especially to those who want to learn how to use eye shadows since it's very basic.
