a little update on my discoveries and new favorites the past few months.
discovered these while walking around watson’s in SM city…BACOLOD. yes. i’m not a beauty snob, and i’m willing to try all sorts of products as long as it works and these WORK!(and honestly, i don’t exactly know what the brand is so i just look for these tubes and that’s it) i especially love the moisturizer. it leaves my skin moisturized but not sticky! it also has a cooling effect. i love it so much, every time i go into a watson’s, i have to look for these. delighted that they were on sale a few months ago and hoarded so MUCH. you should look through my bathroom cabinets and they are filled with these little things. hehehe.
my current everyday beauty schtick – i put on a tiny amount of skinfood‘s good afternoon honey black tea bb cream or pat a thin layer dr feelgood as primer. i really like this bb cream because it’s illuminating – keeps your skin glowing. then i use sugarbomb as bronzer/blusher, curl my lashes and use THE BEST mascara – armani’s eyes to kill. for lips, i go either very “natural” with chanel’s rouge coco baume(the prissy girl’s lip balm! HA!) or this amazing new line from armani beauty, it’s rouge d’armani sheer lipstick! my friend gave me this bright barbie pink color(vita 501) but on the lips it’s light and sheer. it’s really pretty and fresh.
i was also cleaning out my stack of beauty products and forgot i had this smokin’ eye kit from benefit! makes smokey eyes easy-peasy which i love to do for evenings. another night-out essential is gloss d’armani in nude.
and since i’m miss kuripot, i found a good mattifying top coat from dashing diva. this keeps me from obsessing over not hoarding enough bottles of chanel’s velvet matte top coat.
whenever i can, i love getting a good tan and since i came back from the beach, i’ve been obsessed with trying to prolong the golden glow. my usual beach staples are a good sunscreen, currently i’m using VMV’s armada sport 70 spf for my body and chanel’s uv essentiel for my face. for tanning, i swear by amazing maui babe’s browning lotion. simply the BEST and most effective.
to make the tan last, i use a combination of nivea‘s smooth body oil and nivea’s baby loving caring oil at night. unfortunately, i haven’t seen nivea’s smooth body oil in watson’s or supermarkets lately so i’ve been worried. let me know if you see this! i am going to hoard! i also discovered vaseline’s total moisture cocoa glow recently and have been using this in the mornings/daytime. it keeps the skin buttery soft with no icky feeling.
