Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium
warfreakbaby 11/8/2008 11:06:00 AM
i use this as powder foundation. i remember i used to complain on make up board that this looks chalky on me. i was using my mac 187 before. then i just bought TBS mineral foundation brush, their kabuki version brush. i use that one on this special mineralize powder and it looks AMAZING!!! the powder melts into my face and becomes my second skin. just be very careful using this one because you might end up with heavy make up look. i only use a small amount and then buff, buff and buff. everything looks perfect! i have this in medium and i used to be NC25-30 in MAC and 30 Cendre in Chanel. but im planning to get the light medium next time because im acidic.
WOW! this blush is beautiful! i was not able to get this because i thought it was not for my skintone, NC25-30. i did not even try this on my chanel counter. got this on swap and i got surprised when i opened it. US version looks entirely different from the UK version of turbulent. the US version looks neon pink and i really got scared to use it. but then i decided to use this blush and thank God i did! this is the best pink blush i ever used. others said this is similar to NARS Desire. NO, its not!!! i purchased Desire before and used it for less than 3x then swapped it away. it looks fake on me. with turbulent, everything is perfect. it looks natural and very pretty. its true what they say, you can never go wrong with Chanel.
i was a bit hesitant if i should buy this or not. i do not use e/s everyday. im a blush and lipstick girl and i invest my money on those 2. but my Nars SA told me that they only have 1 cordura and it might take months before they have it again so i gave this a try. the first time HE put this on me, i said "WOW!!!" this is the brown ive been searching for. i tried a LOT of browns. from Mac to Guerlain to Chanel to BB but i couldnt find the one im looking for. so when i saw cordura, i told myself this is it! been wearing this for 4 consecutive days and i always get compliments from friends. you might be wondering why there are 2 browns on this duo. the first one is medium brown while the 2nd one is more of chocolate brown. perfect combination.
Lipstick -Chanel - Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshine in Samoa #75

got the sample size of this lipstick. at first look, i wasnt interested at all. i dont like dark color lipstick. i think it makes me look so much older. i read the reviews here in mua and i realized i should give it a try. WOW!!!! what an amazing lip color! on my lips, this is a shade of red with gold shimmer. i never thought that red lipstick would look good on me. what i like the most with this lipstick is it makes my teeth look soooo white and clean! it makes my face sooo bright looking. when DH saw me the first time im wearing this, he said "you look blooming!" awwww!!!!! but i dont think i can use this lipstick as my everyday lipstick. i guess i can use it on special occassions or when i go out at night. quality and packaging, i am very impressed!!!
oh wow, this blush is unbelievable! the first time i used this with my 168 blush brush, i got scared because it was TOO bright red on my cheeks. i look like a clown. so, i have to re-do my whole makeup and i decided to use another blush and skipped merrily. today, i decided to try this again and WOW!!! with very light hand, one dab of my 168 brush and i brushed it to my cheeks, this looks GORGEOUS!!! perfect red blush for my NC25-30 skin tone. i dont see any orange when it is on my cheek but some mua'er claimed that merrily turned orangey on them after a while. the texture is outstanding and i think it will take forever before i see any pan from this blush. by the way, i put this on my 3 year old daughter with skin color of NC 15-20 and she looks like a doll!!!
Nice bronzer for first timer. i thought i will never need a bronzer because im acidic and any makeup used on me turned darker/gray in color. but i was wrong. with this, it gives my face a contour and nice glow. this is my first bronzer and i love it.

love the scent! i dont understand why some people dont like the scent of this one.. the scent is sooo fresh and uplifting! it moisturizes well. my only complain, im uncomfortable using this while wearing my favorite clothes. im afraid that the oil might stain my clothes. still prefer TBS body butter.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #168 Large Angled Contour Brush

WOW!!! what an amazing brush!!! sooo easy to use and gives me the result i want! this is the best blush brush in the market! i even use this on my MSF natural. love this more than my 187.
i really wanna get this blush because of the great review here in mua. but when i saw this, i hesitated. it was sooo light and i thought it will not show up on my NC25-30 skintone. then i read the word "FROST" at the back. uh-oh!!! i hate that formula. im about to leave the store but then i remember again the good reviews here. so i said, why not give this d*** blush a try?! oh well, the result was soooo gorgeous!!! very natural! it looks like im not wearing any blush but im glowing and blushing naturally! i love this! HG status!
i was so excited to try this blush from the sonic chic collection but to my dismay, i didnt like this shade. i read from the reviews that this is a peachy blush but on my NC25-30 skin, it looks gold! i dont know why it turned out to be sooo gold on me. i think this blush and nars luster is just the same. they are both gold when brushed into my cheeks. i wish i could appreciate them both like others do.

Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Olive Body Butter

this is the BEST Body Butter! i love the fresh scent. i love how it keeps my skin so soft and silky. DH cant stop commenting about how my skin changed. i use this almost everyday. my favorite from TBS and my second favorite is the shea body butter.
wow, what a great foundation! i cant believe that i will like this better than my HG chanel TI. for me, this foundation is like a tinted moisturizer. its sheer, doesnt cover anything but makes my skin so soft, glowy and healthy looking. it is not cakey, it is not heavy. if you dont have something to cover from your face, get this foundation coz its really great.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Body Butter - Brazil Nut

i love the smell, soooo yummy. i was thinking of licking my own arms while putting this to my skin. the only reason why i only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars, it seems that i put on suntan lotion to my skin instead of body butter. my skin is sooo shiny. i feel like im going to a beach. but with its moisturizing effect, its perfect because my skin is really soft. the scent is so delicious but honestly, i still prefer the TBS she body butter because the scent of shea lasts longer than brazil nut.
my very first Body Butter! im not a lotion user because of the humid weather we have here in philippines. my friend noticed that my skin is becoming obviously dry, she said i should check this body butter from TBS. i went to TBS and fortunately, they have discounts on their best selling items and shea butter is one of them. oh, i love the smell and i love how it makes my skin sooo healthy looking. my 3 year old daughter loves this too and everyday, after she takes a bath, she's always looking for this. we were like fools smelling each other's skin. we are really addicted to this. perfecty, perfect, perfect!!!
