COVERGIRL Kind of Week | BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge

5 Jan

Happy New Year everyone!

For my very post this 2015, I decided to make it the BDJ Box 7-day challenge. For 7 days straight, I used the whole lot of products I got from the December 2014 BDJ Box (Covergirl Exclusive) which I haven’t done any unboxing posts yet… wait for it soon!

I had a wonderful staycation and celebration of Christmas and New Year. With those events and everything in between, I used the following:

  • Covergirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup in Shade 2
  • Covergirl TruBlend Pressed Powder in Shade 2
  • Covergirl Eye Enhancers 4 Kit Shadows in Country Woods
  • Covergirl Cheekers Blush
  • Covergirl Lash Blast Length Mascara

All these products are full size! Actually, the only things I added are eyebrow products and lipstick and my whole look is complete.

The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer | For that summer-y, smitten feel

29 Sep

I don’t know what’s happening with me but my love for blushes has somehow put to rest and contouring powders replace them.

I got my first product from The Balm Cosmetics. I ordered this from My Pretty Haven, an online shop in Facebook and Instagram. The seller’s name is Kristy and she is super nice and accommodating. I first asked if the Bahama Mama is matte, because if it is, I’ll purchase one. I paid Php 600 to own this popular contouring powder.

15 Jul

Classes are suspended today and what better way to spend this bed weather than blog? Right? I know I have been not blogging lately due to work but I am really trying to. I still take pictures of products but haven’t really had time to take pictures of actual usage.

But for the BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge, I really tried to document my usage.

Here is a photo collage of the 7 sample sizes that I used for the week.

Unboxing the June 2014 BDJ Box

26 Jun

Ever heard of the saying that love is sweeter the second time around? Though I am not really a fan of giving second chances to people because I believe that you have it make it right the first chance you got. Anyway, if its makeup and skin care we’re talking about with chances, I would not cut the wire.

Krave’s Lip and Cheek Salve| Color as you Heal

26 Apr

I am all for multi-tasking products and since this one is a lip and cheek product, you can bet that this one was on my to-buy list. But then I remembered I have a 1000 gift certificate from Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals since I won the Fearless Krave Mom last year Mother’s day.

The Krave team suggested I get 2 oil eliminators and 1 lip and cheek salve. I agreed because I really wanted to try the salve ever since it was released. I received it a day after we talked. Fast, right?

I like that it was sealed when I received it, assuring me it was new. It has a very glam, sleek looking packaging with a purple label “KRAVE”.

MAKEUP TAG

26 Apr

I gave in to the tag from RareVanity. I am an avid reader of Ms. Gem’s blog and she is even one of the reasons why I started blogging. I read her post and thought that this was quite interesting… So without further ado, here are my answers:

SKINCARE

How many times do you wash your face daily?

On a regular basis, I wash my face twice daily though there are days when I wash it thrice because a) it’s sooo hot and b) I have to prepare for something.

What skin type do you have? (dry, oily. combo)

I have sensitive, oily and acneic skin. I breakout due to hormones (pms and menstruation days) and reaction to new products.

What is your current facial wash?

I alternate using Krave Cupine Aloepa Facial Wash (morning) and ZA facial wash (night).

Do you exfoliate?

I only exfoliate at night and not more than twice a week. I feel it’s better at night it’s as if I’m preparing my skin for its “renewal time”.

What brand do you use?

Depending on m my mood, I alternate using Human Nature’s Purifying Facial Scrub, Cure, and Olay regenerist megasonic.

What moisturizer do your use?

I collect moisturizers but currently I am using different moisturizers for the morning and at night. In the morning, I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then Celeteque Anti-aging moisturizer with SPF15. At night I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then ZA Collagen Moisturizer.

Do you have freckles?

I have none.

Do you use eye cream?

Yes! In the morning I use Olay Regenerist Eye Cream and Lash Serum. At night, I use Avon Anew Genics Eye Cream.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

Sadly, yes. I easily react to products with harsh ingredients so I always opt for those safe for sensitive skin.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ? I wanted to but I haven’t used it yet.

Ellana Lip and Cheek Gel in Ruby | Are you Red-y?!

8 Mar

Ellana Cosmetics is another brand which is proudly Pinoy made. It recently made a comeback, which caters improved and new products. I haven’t tried any of them yet until BDJ Box included one of its bestsellers in the January-February BDJ Box.

The shade I got was Ruby and from the bottle, it looks bloody red with blue undertone. I love the functionality of the packaging. It is a pump plastic bottle which can withstand falls. The pump, on the other hand, has no cover but it locks as you twist it – making it very travel friendly! The drawing / label design looks very sophisticated and feminine!
