Some LOOT, FREEBIE, EOTD, LOTD and FOTD =D

It's Friday again ladies (my fave day!), and so last night, in anticipation of today, I roamed around the mall for 2 hours [it's great exercise,too]. I originally wanted to just windowshop for the SRP of some imported make up I ordered from my friend Jamie of Venus & Mars, which BTW is arriving today! YEY! But as always, I ended up buying stuffs, though nothing big, and happily headed home.



If time flies, so does money! All the while I thought I was just buying small, cheap stuffs, but it still left damages to my wallet. Teehee. =p



PS: Thanks to my friend & biz partner Shayne for giving me the CoverGirl ES Queen Collection for FREE! Looks like she used it once or twice only saying she looked like a whore walking the street in the morning. LOL. It's makeup, and it's free, so why the hell not? Posted this EOTD for her, hoping to prove "the whore look" wrong =D




**KIKAY LOOT**


CG ES Queen Collection from Shayne (Php 450.00)
Celeteque Oil Control Toner (50% OFF so only Php 67.00)
Celeteque Oil Free Moisturizer (50% OFF so only Php 99.00) - THANKS TO LOVELY THIAMERE FOR THE 50% OFF INFO & REVIEW on this that I decided to try these for a simple, affordable alternative =)
Bobbie Nail Polish in "I DO" (Php 38.00) - Been wanting the ELF in Champagne, but since I can't find it in the malls near me, I got this as a sub, a cheaper dupe.
F21 Color Mood Lippie in Gentle Peach (just Php 150.00) - Inspired by the nude lip craze of Miemiemie, I braved the odds of finding the right nude lip color for my chunky, super full lips.
(didn't bother posting not so kikay buys like belts, soap & tissue holders & waste bin =p)

CG ES Queen Collection

F21 Color Mood Lippie in Gentle Peach

I tried several nude lippies at the make up counters & checked the recommended products in different blogs, but I think or discovered for myself that I can choose from 3 nude looks: pinkish nude, peachy nude and brownish nude, and after an hour of trials, I'm finally convinced that my skin color looks great on peachy nude!

Likes:
- very affordable
- Pinoy made
- no scent
- creamy
- with moisturizers
- gives a "nude" but healthy look, I didn't look anemic or sick!
- compliments my skintone well
Dislikes:
- tends to be sticky and creasy after a few hours
- needs to glide several times to achieve desired color (I have pigmented lips though)
Overall Verdict: 8.5/10 I'm OFFICIALLY INLOVE with this nude lippie =)
**EOTD**

Using CG ES Queen Collection
(white, blue and green)
I just used the sponge applicator included, and is done in 5 minutes. I know, I still need practice, but isn't bad for an amateur =)
VERDICT:
-Pigment is okay, but not outstanding
-I like shimmers but this is a tad too glittery for everyday wear, so be careful in application
-Colors are fresh, Dark Blue, Blue, Shimmer Green & Ice White
-Not bad for its price, 4 colors for Php 450.00
-I rate this 7/10

  7. @ twinsouls: yay, thanks for the kind comments on the FOTD, I'm just an amateur learning more from you guys =D I'm addicted to coloring my hair, but my roots are showing & definitely needs a retouch =p

    @ Julie aka Pop: It's my first time to try peach nude, and I think I should have done it earlier. I'm sure you'll look gorgeous in nude lips, your skin will glow more with it! =)

    @ Dana: Thanks for the love hun! =D

  12. @ Pixelgraffiti: I actually don't wear lippies/ES everyday.[too lazy!] A good, tinted lipbalm is fine since my lips are fortunately red enough =D But now that I found the right nude tone for me, I guess I'll stick with it for a while.

    Let's sched the sleepover soooon! Muah*

    @ Shen: Thanks to Jheng, for showing me that pretty blue E/S is achievable, and wearable =D

    As I said, I just follow make up tutorials from sites like yours, so THANK YOU SWEETIE!

    And the lippie? It's a steal @ Php 150.00, just a tenth of what you spend on your MAC collection =D

    @ Twinsouls: Thanks for the award sis, first time, so I'm soo excited =D

    @ ToothFairy: Thanks for dropping by dear, & for the kind comments on the lippie =D Hope to see & know you more! I'm checking your blog now =)
