5 Beauty Crimes I'm guilty of

1. I don't wash my brushes every after use. Since I work an-8 hour job, it's impossible to squeeze that in during my busiest moments.

2. I can't expertly do my eyebrows. =( Sad, but true.

3. I let all grease run amuck in my face when I'm at home. I really feel icky when I have something in my face (and not foundie) and I feel like I'll get all the dirt.

4. I hate my crease-less eyelids. (Is this even a crime?)

5. I only comb my hair once a week. I have curly hair. Period.

I'm tagging EVERYBODY! =P

In Review: NARS Blush in Oasis

Nars Blush in Oasis, Ps.1,350 (Rustan's)
Photo by teeyah.



Pure love. I can't believe that this brand actually has something that has gold speckles. Staying power is excellent as it stays on all day =P

Made with transparent pigments for a soft and sheer look. Imparts a natural, healthy glow for any skin tone and may be worn alone or layered together for more depth and intensity.
Provides a sheer, natural hint of color
Made with transparent pigments to avoid heaviness
Broad selection of shades.

Source: http://www.narscosmetics.com/Blush-C39_category_7.aspx

Like what the website says, it was exactly sheer and does not cover your cheek with blush in one stroke. This is good if you're the type who just wants a hint of blush in your face. I was supposed to buy the Orgasm shade, but did not for 2 reasons:

1. It was too coral-ish for me. I rarely wear coral shades as I feel it becomes too orange on my yellow, Asian skin.
2. The Rustan's branch didn't have a stock anyway. :P

Anyway, overall, I'm very happy with NARS Oasis, as it really makes the face shimmer. Perfect for the season, too!

In my loot...

The other day, I received my loot from Elegant Minerals and wasn't able to write about 'em.


Anyhoo, now that I have some time, I can write a quickie review on the samples from Elegant Minerals.


Photo by: teeyah. 2008

What's shown above is a 1. Pink Glow Bronzer, 2. Foundation in Corn Silk and 3. E/s in Slate. So far, I have only used these three shades and I love how highly pigmented the e/s is. When I used it, I forgot to foil it and just lined the lower part of my lid with it. I loved the fact that it stayed in my eyes even after having dinner at NSG (which by the way was YUM).

I have yet to try the rest of my samples this week and hopefully complete all of my pending reviews.

Inception of the MMU Addiction





It all started with this...
For many months now I've been fascinated with mineral make up. My mom says it's all a rage (however, she buys me MMU from US) but I beg to disagree and join the bandwagon. I've read about it from blog-hopping, Multiply, all sorts of information avenue. And they all say one thing: Mineral Make up is the best thing that will ever happen to your skin.

Whatever will happen to mine will be the subject of my next post =)

**MMU was ordered online, thru Marie of Elegant Minerals. Order from their Multiply site. BTW, Marie was very nice to send the loot way before I headed over to Gcash to pay them. =)
