H2O+ CC Cream Broad Spectrum in Fair/Light

I have reviewed a few of CC Creams in the past (Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream, MAC Prep+Prime CC Cream, ANEW 15-in-1 CC Cream) and so far I have been impressed with how they work on me. Being one of those women who suffer from weird skin tones. I have a pinkish-yellowish skin tone so you can imagine how confusing that would be when choosing foundations.

Just like BB Creams, the CC Cream has a lot of benefits so it's also an all-in-one cream: anti-aging, sunblock, moisturizer, color correcting, gives coverage, etc. H2O Plus is a skin care brand that uses stuff from the sea that benefits the skin to the maximum. I have always believed in this brand, one it being something natural, and secondly, I love the smell of their products.

Covergirl Cheekers Blush in Pretty Peach

#aboutface

I swear, this particular product from Covergirl brings back so much memories of grade school. I remember I would ask my relatives arriving from the states to buy me Covergirl makeup because they don't sell them here yet! It's such a classic look from Covergirl! Yes, I started wearing makeup when I was 14. Just a simple face powder, blush and lip gloss though, but makeup nonetheless.

CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Pretty Peach contains 3 grams / 0.12 oz of product which will actually last you quite a while. The blush also comes with a brush which is soft but the hairs are quite coarse -but can be of good use when you are in hurry and don't have anything else to apply your blush with. I would describe this color as a muted pink with a bit of coral to it. It also has a bit of gold sheen (not shimmer) to it if you look a little closer. This color brightened up my complexion and looks great for summer to highlight a tan, or all year round if you have a warmer skin tone.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl

#liptalktuesdays

This lippie has got to be one for the books! The first time I saw this lippie was on my friend and fellow beauty blogger, Martha Sta. Barbara of The Beauty Junkee. I saw her wearing a shade of lipstick in a perfect red and I just had to find out what it was! Then she told me that it was the lippie we all got from the Closeup Diamond Attraction launch, so YAY!! I have it!

I received this NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil from the Closeup Diamond Attraction Event press kit. This was included in the kit because it is one of Heart Evangelista's picks for must-haves in her cosmetic case, and I just fell in love with it!

I know, I know, searching for a perfect red lipstick is never easy, so if you are still on the look out for that perfect red for your skin tone, then this may be it! Curious? More after the break!

Tony Moly's New BCDation All Master

#aboutface

If you are one of those women who love all-in-one products that has the functionality of a BB and CC Cream in foundation form, then this would be it! I didn't expect such great coverage and texture from this foundation because of its advertised "lightweight formula", so I guess lightweight refers to how it feels on the skin. To be quite honest? I thought it would just be one of those run of the mill foundations that brands randomly come out with. But this? This I didn't expect.

Yes, it does have its cons too but the overall experience I have with this foundation is great! I have been using this foundation for two weeks straight! I have neglected rotating my foundations for a while since this was introduced to me. (Thank you Tony Moly!)

So, what does BCDation mean? BB + CC + Foundation = BCDation. That's what it stands for. Curious? More after the break!

Happy Skin collaborates with Celebrity Stylist Liz Uy and gets #styLIZed!

#liptalktuesdays #events

Last February 5 marks a very special day for Happy Skin Cosmetics and Liz Uy fans because Happy Skin launches its second collaboration with a celebrity, and this time it's with Manila's style icon Liz Uy! Last year's collaboration was with Kris Aquino, which the brand came out with a single lip color called Valentine Kiss. This year, they are out with three dazzling shades that would surely make you look and feel like an icon yourself!

Inspired by her bestselling book, StyLIZed: Liz Uy’s Ten Style Essentials, Liz Uy collaborates with Happy Skin to create limited-edition lipsticks so you can dress up your lips! “Lipstick is a fashion essential because it completes a woman’s look,” she explains. “Just like shoes, the right lip color can change your entire look.”

I have known Liz since college and she's just one of my most favorite people. She is sweet, funny, and really kalog. Down to earth in spite of her great success in her career! We have worked on several shoots in the past when I was just starting my career as a makeup artist in 2005, and a big part of my success in the industry was because of this amazing woman! I can't help but feel proud of where Liz has arrived today. So, before anything else, I want to say, congratulations Liz!
