Makeup Wishlist

I love awesome makeups!!
Those that are even impossible to find in my motherland.
However, I don't lose hope coz online sellers exist,
I know they'll gonna help me find them~^^
I have a long wishlist for makeups.
Some are cheap, some costs an arm or a leg, or even a head...
but these makeups in my post are somewhat rare,
and some are just because of my stupid urge.

Here it goes:
1. Lime Crime Lipsticks

The first time I saw it was when I saw Jessica Harlow's video
 when she did a Lady Gaga at the Grammys look.
The packaging looks like it's from
the Heatherette collection from Mac.
Pink packaging and holographic unicorn.
Heatherette's logo is a unicorn too.
The color of these lipsticks are shocking,
not recommended for conservative chicks.
I love it, who says I'm conservative anyway?
I want shocking and bright makeup colors.
So I really want to get the Countessa Fluorescent.
A neon pink lippie and it looks like this when worn:

2.  Kim Kardashian Makeup Gift Set
Seriously this one is so hard to find
because Sephora's not selling Kardashian stuffs anymore.
I heard at Macy's they still sell Kimmy's voluptuous fragrance.

I really think their makeups are BOMB! soooo awesome.
Smokey makeups and glowing skin are always hot.

I really want the gift set since it comes with a complete makeup and a mirror.
It contains 3 smokey eyeshadows,
1 cream blush
and 2 lip colors that resemble
Kim Kardashian's signature look.
Maybe the lippies are inspired by
Mac Angel Lipstick and Nars Turkish Delight
that Kimmy swears by.

I should have it, everything's in here for easier grab,
mix and match, the color that I want in one palette.
plus the 1 oz perfume is a must as well.
However, the price is such a pain in the @ssssss!!!
I think it goes perfectly with glowing skin,
and a glowing tan is a must have for me this summer.
I've been pale all my life.

3. Benefit Silky finish lipstick in Ms. Behavin'

The shade that the Cullen Clan wears in the Twilight Saga.
I know it looks good on pale skin,
so I dunno whether to get a tan and sport a Kardashian bombshell look,
or stay pale and get a vampire look.

4. Nox Twilight Nailpolish

Twilight has its own line of cosmetics called Twilight Beauty.
The makeup palettes are even named after Twilight characters.
They also sell the infamous vampire glitters. lol

 I've seen a Twilight beauty counter in
SM Mall of Asia,
but they are selling Luna and Volturi Twilight line only.

I want the Nox twilight nail enamels,
but I'm still thankful that we have some of the line
 here in the Philippines.

Look it has the Cullen crest!!!
I heard good reviews about the shade called Sangria, a bloody red.
Black Tie is also good since I love black nail polish.

5. Twilight Cosmetics

I'm not really a twilight freak,
but I love the idea of vampires,
black, goths,
scary and mysterious stuffs.

          I read some reviews that these cosmetics are really pigmented and waaaay better than Mac,
so I want to have any from this line, whether from Luna, Nox or Volturi.
The prices however are similar to the Kardashian gift set.
A pain in the @sssssssss....
Aren't they gorgeous and lovely? ^_^
It's dazzling!!!

Lady Bug Nails

Inspired by Lady Bug herself. LoL

What you'll need:
base coat
red nail polish
black nailpolish
top coat
creativity and steady hands


I even found a faux lady bug with blue colors instead of black :)

Korean eyes: eyeliner and glitters

I really love how Korean female entertainers wear their eye makeup on.
I'm thankful as well coz ever since I learned it I wear it whenever I go out.
It enhances my eyes more, since my eyes are not really small but somewhat monolid.
The eyefolds are not that thick so if I wear eyeliner the rest of the makeup at the eyefold doesn't show,
and without proper eye primers the eyeliner smudges at the crease or hood of my eye.

For my eye makeups I look forward to Kara and 2ne1.
Heavily lined eyes with glitters and accents.
Two of my favorites are Hara and Bom.
Kara's Goo Hara

2ne1's Park Bom

my simple 2ne1 take that I wear almost everyday:

inspired by bommie 

me & cousin kimberly

I've tried many looks but this one's I really like,
eyeliners + glitters

What you'll need:

a gel or liquid eyeliner
shimmery eyeshadow
pencil eyeliner
mascara or false eyelashes
glitter eyeliner

what I used is the silver glitter eyeliner is from Careline.
It's cheap and less than 100 bucks but it's really nice.
The color is just plain silver,
kinda like a disco ball,
and glitters are somewhat big so it's really visible.

You can try the glitter eyeliners from Ever Bilena too.
The glitters are finer and smaller.
The silver glitters are mixed with some blue and purple ones.

Here's my take using my phone's camera 
I'm also wearing Geo lenses in black

I also dig CL's double wings 

attempt #1
with false eyelashes

attempt #2
extreme and longer

I'm really planning to post more and imitate more korean looks and makeups. :)

Men wearing makeup, when is too much?

I've posted from my previous blog about men wearing makeup,
(but I deleted and updated a new one)
particularly Korean men
(the K-artist, actors, entertainers)
 coz I'm a big fan and I like them a lot.
In every comeback teasers of these artist, they give a peek and feel of their new concept.
The rave nowadays are the dark concept,
converting men to become metrosexuals and sport smokey eyes,
which indicate a sexier, manly image.

Thank God these smokey eyes are welcomed and embraced by the society of rabid fangirls,
but still since we cannot please everybody there are still dumb people giving dumb comments.
(i.e, they're gay. THEY'RE NOT. ok?)

But when is enough and when is too much?
Smokey eyes are ok for me. Even male Egyptians used that during ancient times.
Big bang's T.O.P who popularized it made him look edgier and strong.
Since then, many follows suit.
But nowadays the makeup artists are taking them tooooo far and the makeups are waaaay too much.

Let's have a category.

Category 1: the simple eyeliner/simple smokey
It just naturally follows the contour of the eye, somewhat enhancing/appropriate.

Second category: eyeliner +eyeshadow
By blending eyeliner and eyeshadow together,
it creates strong smokey effect making eyes darker.

Category 3: The artistic
Comes with artistic shapes, arts and some accents like rhinestones

Category 4: 2ne1 inspired
Obviously, the heavily winged/cat eyes reminds us of 2ne1

Category 5: Super Hot and Smokey
the dark liner and shadows are all over the place,
but it looks hot (my biases for short lol)

Category 6: the inappropriate!!!
men shouldn't wear meakups this heavy!!!
a total no no!!!

KEY's glittered eyes

FINAL CATEGORY: the wtf is this

Seriously Rain, I've seen you performed live and your hotness and sexiness
is overflowing but wtf is with this concept???
i honestly don't get the lower falsies
