Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow | BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge

14 May

I usually have one favorite item in every BDJ Box I receive. For the April 2015 BDJ Box, my favorite item is the Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow.

This was said to be a dupe for Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick. I was able to try the Bobbi Brown one (pinkish shade)  during the makeup workshop I attended last Saturday and I can attest that it may pass as a dupe.

There are three shades available – Peach Glow, Rose Glow and Bronze Glow. I got Bronze Glow and even if I were going to purchase just one among the three, I will still be getting the Bronze Glow because I love its shades!

Topaz Mommy x Bobbi Brown Makeup Workshop

13 May

I arrived in Bobbi Brown Megamall (between Bldg A and Bldg B) 11 am sharp. There were mommies too, I assumed, my fellow winners/readers of Topaz Mommy, a blog by Ms. Frances A. Sales. We were all waiting and when Ms. Frances arrived, my jaw dropped. I whispered to my new mommy friend, Aubrey, “Ang ganda ni Ms. Frances!” She walked through the store, wearing a black tube top, black pants, pearl necklace and a bare face– simply gorgeous!

I love this Bobbi Brown store because it is beautifully arranged, and the products are so pretty!

We were doing some icebreakers and just chatting before the workshop started. We also took turns swatching which shade will match our skin tones.Ms. Frances gave out Leuchtturm notebooks (Php 1200) to each of us.

Bobbi Brown Manager also dropped in to say hi. Ms. Sam Sadhwani was also there! We did not know that there was a mini workshop room inside the Bobbi Brown flagship store! Ms. Tamara was the one who taught us about the basics of makeup application. The model, of course, was Ms. Frances!

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.

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.
