FOTD: Featuring Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick # 3 Coral

MAC MSF Natural - Medium Deep
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer NC 35
Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick - 3 Coral
Softlips lipbalm - Vanilla Mint

Bought the blush at a local CCO for $15. What i like no make that love, is that it instantly brightens my face. The sparkles are more refined than that of NARS' Orgasm. Making it appear to be a subtle glow than a discoball glitter fest on my face.

On Top: NARS Orgasm
Below: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in 3 Coral

NARS Orgasm's more pink while BB is more peach. BB's also warmer that orgasm making it flattering to tan ladies like moi.

Goodie Bag: Shu Uemura

Remember when I said the Shu will be leaving U.S soon? and they were having a 50% off sale? Yes, it got the best of me, so I went back to grab myself some "souvenirs" before they said xoxo to United States

It's not a lot really just basic items. But the lady was so kind she gave me a lot of freebie samples with my purchase.

 FREEBIES!!! What I like here is assistants are so open about giving samples without pushing you to buy anything. I was primarily looking for an eye cream but they said they only had samples left and if I liked it, I can order it off the net. Plus the lady gave me a sample of the DepSea Rose, Pink Lipgloss, Premium oil cleanser 15ml and a fresh oil cleanser 50ml

I bought this for $10.99 M Peach 44. I love it, I'm NC 40 and this looks a natural flush for me!! LOVE!
 Fall in sucking the water out of me and i have oily skin!!  So i bought this for $ 9.99 for an easy go to hydration. I use it for my face, hands & hair. 

Finally I scored myself some cleansing oil!!! for only $12.99!!! This is what I originally wanted and I'm glad it was still available. I kind of wish I bought 2 though..

sigh. It's nearing the holiday season. I'm seriously missing home. It's this time of the year where Greenbelt has those awesome lights in the garden and malls are decked out with Christmas decos.

Travelling Skin Woes

Have you ever traveled before and then breakout while using the same products you were using since who knows when?

I flew out of Pinas last May 5th for studies and I thought my skin love the weather since it's not too humid and the pollution is less. After a week of staying here my skin broke out really nasty cystic acne that i have never had in my life before. Sure my skin was not perfect when i was there back home, but it was not THIS bad either.

The products I was using then was The Body Shop's tea tree line which was awesome in keeping my skin behaved. it's so frustrating that it wasn't working anymore.

so I tried various products ranging from neutrogena's acne kit, the stress control line, the tea tree line and then decided to completely slash off Neutrogena in my life. It was so harsh it dried my skin out (on a summer season) and it always gave that tight feeling after you wipe your face from cleaning. The only thing i liked from them was the oil-free sunscreen.

I also tried ProActiv and I'm swearing it off it made my skin dry as hell without doing anything to my spots. Going to a derma isn't even in my option list right now because it costs sooooo much here. Imagine a tube of Duac that costs 850php there costs $80 here, that's just insane. So the search for the skin care regime still continues.
