SMASHBOX: THE HOODWITCH | COVER SHOT CRYSTALIZED EYE PALETTE & SWATCHES + REVIEW

I was a little disappointed when I got this palette. It’s too tiny! I thought it would be a bigger palette for the price. However, I love the packaging, though. Well, the advantage of this small palette is that I can take it with me inside my purse anywhere. It’s my first time using a Smashbox palette, and the shades are stunning. The lighter shades are not as pigmented as I thought they would be. However, you can build it up. The darker shades are my favorites. This palette had eight (8) vivid eyeshadows.

ABOUT THE TEXTURE:
The texture is smooth and very easy to blend.

Hello everyone, what are you up to today? It’s a chilly Sunday morning, and I’m a little congested. It’s 44 degrees outside right now, but it feels like 36 degrees. Today, we decided to stay home, relax, and have a cup of hot cocoa. I love hot cocoa! I mean, who doesn’t?

I love this mug from #HobyLobby

Makeup Tutorial #2: Simple and Easy Daily Makeup Look

So, I made my second makeup video tutorial today. As you can see in my video, I am still a little hesitant, lol. I am a photographer, and I am comfortable in front of a camera for picture taking only. On the flip side, I am not comfortable when it comes to filming myself like this video tutorial thingy. It’s so out of my comfort zone! However, I decided to do this to share my passion for makeup with you guys. It’s the same thing with my love for photography.
In this video tutorial, I was playing with the new makeup palette that a lovely friend of mine gave me. It’s a Laura Geller New York makeup palette. It’s my very first time using this brand, and I’m telling you now I loved it! Hopefully, you will like it. I will appreciate any feedback from you guys ♥♥♥.

My First Eyeshadow Video Tutorial: Sunrise and Evergreen Smokey Eye Look

Hi guys, and how are you doing? I have been a little busy these past few days, especially today. I have my clients’ photos that I need to finish and be ready by Tuesday. Also, tomorrow is back to school for my kiddos. So, this day is one of those multitasking days. Not just that, I wasn’t feeling since last night until earlier this evening, but I need to get things done. So I must say, I am restless today.
Anyway, I want to share my first eyeshadow tutorial with you guys. I always love makeup stuff but never get the chance to make any tutorial about it because I feel awkward sometimes about sharing my makeup routine to the world. Well, some of my friends were asking me if I could make an easy tutorial on how I do my makeup. So, here it is! I hope you will give this video a thumbs up if ever you will like it. If not, no worries! ♥♥♥ All product details I am using in this tutorial are listed on the screen.

HARD ♥ CANDY: LOOK PRO! EYESHADOW PALETTE [REVIEW]

My family and friends know how I love makeup. For me, creating different looks with it is fun! I don’t wear makeup because I’m insecure about my skin or how my face looks. I love wearing makeup to show my creative and artistic side. If someone you know that wears makeup to make her confident in-front of other people, then let her be. Don’t judge a woman because she is wearing makeup.

I love my makeup brands, and I have been using them for a long time. However, three weeks ago, while I was shopping for a new bottle of liquid foundation at our local Wal-Mart store, I glanced at this gorgeous and colorful eyeshadow palette while browsing at the cosmetics department. This eyeshadow palette is by Hard ♥ Candy brand. I honestly haven’t tried using this brand until I saw this eyeshadow palette. The gorgeous earth tone of this palette caught my attention, and I must have it. So, I decided to give it a try.

WHAT DO I LOVE ABOUT IT?

This Hard Candy’s Earthy Vixen Look Pro Palette features fifteen (15) gorgeous earth tone shades and four (4) professional applicators. I love the warm earth tones. Perfect for this Fall season and even for Winter season.

WHAT I DON’T LOVE ABOUT IT?
The only thing that disappoints me is it’s not as pigmented as I thought.

Review: POND’S CLARANT B3 & REJUVENESS ANTI-WRINKLE CREAM

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday. About me, I’m grateful to God for everything today.

Today, I am just going to share my number one and all-time facial skincare products from POND’S (you can find them at your local Walmart store). I started using POND’S products back when I was still in the Philippines over ten years ago and I fell in love with it! I experienced great results using these products since then, so, I am not looking for a replacement at all.

How I Used Them?

I applied them on my face and neck twice a day alternately. Example: Today, I applied the Clarant B3 on my face and neck after shower or cleansing and before going to bed. But you can use it daily though. I just preferred using it every other day. By the way, Clarant B3 is a dark spot correcting cream. The following day, I applied the Rejuveness Anti- Wrinkle Cream. It helps tighten the skin on your face for firmer younger-looking skin. One solid reason why I’m sticking to these products.

POND’S CLARANT B3

  • Ideal for normal to dry skin.
  • Dermatologist tested.
  • Won’t clog pores.

CLARANT B3 is formulated with vitamins B3 and C. This daily moisturizer evens skin tone in 2-4 weeks and visibly diminishes the appearance of dark spots (that’s why I love this product).

POND’S REJUVENESS ANTI-WRINKLE CREAM

  • Dermatologist tested.
  • Won’t clog pores.

REJUVENESS is formulated with AHAS (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and COLLAGEN. Visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in just two weeks, leaving skin firmer and younger-looking. You can apply this product twice daily.

If you haven’t used any of these two products from POND’S yet, you should probably give any of these a try. And when you do, I would love to hear your feedback.
