What's In My Makeup Bag?

You have no idea how many eyeshadows, powders, brushes, lippies and mirrors I carry with me. When I was in highschool and college my pen's always missing, but my eyeliners were always complete, and never misplaced. Sometimes I even forget my notes at home,
but my book of eyeshadow palettes were never forgotten...

Makeup Kit last 2010

1.Avon Supershock mascara in black
2. Revlon eyelash curler
3. Estee Lauder eyeliner 
4. eyebrow brush
5. lipbrush from Tinte cosmetics
6.Elf smudge brush
7. Barenaturals flat top brush
8. Tinte Cosmetics Matchbook in Natural Beauty
9. The Face Shop Cream Foundation
10. Lancome ColorFocus Self Select eyeshadow quad
11. that pie looking eyeshadow that I couldn't remember the brand

I used to love that Matchbook from Tinte Cosmetics in Natural Beauty that I bought at Beauty Bar for P1,600 pesos only and the Lancome Color Focus Self Select eyeshadow quad from my bezzie.

More makeups that I alternately use before, some were prizes from Maybelline and L'oreal
when I won for Hair in Manila's contest last 2010.

When I was working my makeup kit has doubled. Sometimes I carry everything I can,
coz whenever I have free time I put makeup on, take a selfie and blog.

It's my office table way back 2012. That flowery tangerine makeup bag's from Clinique,
and was given by my aunt who gave the same Louis Vuitton's Spring 2002 Collection White Multicolour/Murakami Monogram Speedy 30 bag. I told everyone in the office that the bag's fake every time they ask me if it's authentic. I don't want to overwhelm them like why I use such thing and I seldom use it. But it isn't. It's actually the original LV Speedy 30.

Aunt bought it before the knockoffs were sold in the market. I'm still thankful she gave it to me, of all the people that she knew. The first time that I saw this bag, I think I was in highschool. I don't care much about LV that time. Seeing it again, it didn't look old, and it's more than 10 years old.
What's more important than that bag was the piece of advice she gave me and it really did change some of my plans in life, love and career. Aunt currently resides in California.
I just see her once every 2 years, or twice a year.

Another office table shot! Yes I do share my makeups with my office mates.I even received gifts from them. That Chanel kit was given by Ate Janice, my friend who used to work with Elizabeth Arden at Duty Free Cosmetics aisle.There's more that wasn't even reached by my cam.You have no idea.

Now that I'm preggo I've decided to minimize everything! I only carry the important ones, but they still seem plenty for a small purse.

Purse from: Marithe Francois Girbaud

What's inside my purse?

1. Revlon Eyelash curler
2. Victoria's Secret Dream Angels miniature perfume
3. Clinique eyeshadow and blush quad
4. Mac Heatherette Compact replaced with a dual powder foundation
5. Maybelline Clearsmooth Mineral Blush in Original rose
6. Etude House Shini Star Lipbalm in Guava
7. L'oreal Hip Eyeshadow brush
8. Elf Stippling brush
9. Barenaturals Flat Top brush
10. Kirkland Borghease Eyebrow brush
11. Jazzy Collection Cream Foundation
12. Johnson's baby lotion
13. Nyx Lipstick in Dusty Rose

I even customized my own palette that I can easily carry around,travelling, sleepovers at my father in law's house, anywhere.I depotted neutral eyeshadows and a few pink and peach blushes. Some were from my Kirkland Borghease palette, Sugar Skull Cosmetics 88 Earth Palette, and single eyeshadows that I got from the past.

When I was still a student nurse all the essential things for the patient should be at bedside.
Well, my bedside's like this at the moment, a few weeks from now it'll be different
and all my makeup stash will be there. ^_^ I feel sorry for my husband.

The scent that I'm loving at the moment: Heiress.I've been sniffing this scent from my bestfriend for years and years but I don't like it that much. Now my pregnant brain told my
olfactory nerve that this one's the best, aside from Purr by Katy Perry.

 By the way go and check it out! I'm lovin' these accessories from Sweet Frostings.

Etude House Cosmetics Haul and New Endorsers

I miss blogging and it's really been a long time! 
I have a few stuffs from Etude House that I failed to post and review
 coz aside from being busy my freaking laptop's still not working.
 I'll be updating you guys with some of the lippies that I have, and more.

The last time that I blogged I was all over SHINee and Dara.
Even when I went to Singapore their faces were all over Orchard Malls and K-Street in Bugis.
 I even watched SHINee's concert, alone.

Now they have their latest endorsers, SM Entertainment's Fx members
Sulli and Krystal.

Sulli and Krystal shares the same company/agency with SHINee.
They're from a 5 member girl group.
They're called F(x).

I knew that Sulli will be the next in line coz Etude House Korea was the sponsor
2012's teeny South Korean drama "To The Beautiful You".
Most of the casts' toiletries were from Etude, including Kwanghee's lipbalm
that made me laugh coz it looks familiar.

He's using the SHINI Star Lipbalm in Cherry, the main character from the drama's shade
(Minho's a.k.a Park Tae Jun)

I have 5 of it!! Then when I couldn't even use all of them at the same time,
I gave some of it to my cousins. I've done reviews from the past too, 
just click the "Etude House" label at the right lower side of my blog.

One lippie's left for me, and it's the guava flavor.

Throwback!! This has been my favorite picture, and I did an inspired look last year.
Unfortunately when I watched the concert last December I wasn't able to do this.
I was too lazy and I went to Singapore Indoor Stadium early.

For the makeup tutorial and to see the products used, click this link:

Now let me share with you the sweet smelling, sweet tasting lip tints!

Sulli is using the Fresh Cherry Tint in PK001 pink

 I've bought 4 Fresh Cherry Tints from the past, and here's a collage
I made a month ago

I've got the 4 shades!!
In this pic, I'm wearing Fresh Cherry Tint in OR201 Peach

Still can't get over the Kiss Note Era of Dara and SHINee.
I've bought My Blooming Lips-Talk, one at a time.
in this crappy pic I'm using the lippie in OR204 Shy Coral.

So far, it's my favorite since it makes me look glowing,
and it complements my complexion and hair color well.
I used to like nude lippies but now i kinda hate them coz they made me look
ultra anemic. 

Now there's a new line of pink lippies endorsed by Fx's Krystal
called the Pink Talk Line.
I've got PK014 and I still want to get PK012.
I also got  RD306 and PK006


Pink play party was held at Marina Bay Sands last August.
Lucky Singaporean fans were able to catch a glimpse again
of the five boys together with Sulli.

I wonder where are my other nail polishes, lippies, lipbalms..
Last time I checked these are the ones left.. :(
I swear from now on I won't let my friends borrow
any of my makeups...
or my little cousins play with them..

I miss my shopping buddy, my bezzie.
She went back to Singapore last February.
Sooner or later I'll visit her there again, and I'll be bringing my baby and my husband. ^_^
Something to look forward to! It'll be next year.

In this pic we purchased lippies and nail polish, both pale pink and baby pink.
He're a few pics from her beautiful hands, and my thin bony hand.

**Trivia* Lippie Color Guide**

PK stands for Pink - PK006, PK009, PK014
