I feel so much loved when people give me GIFTS (from a small trinket to a letter will do, its the THOUGHT that counts. :D), more so when these loot was given as birthday presents. :D (What can I say, its my LOVE LANGUAGE.)
So my many thanks to my Ate Nice and my Mom for these lovelies:
|Since these are gifts, i will NOT include a Pro and Con section here. But rather, a detailed description of each. :)|
This blush was given to me by Ate Nice, a motherly-friend of mine. :)
I really like the packaging (the box, i cannot seem to throw away...)
|H.N.'s Love Minerals in Petal Bloom Blush.|
If I know correctly, Human Nature's line of cosmetics is available by a) via an "Avon Lady" seller w/ matching brochures(its just my term, its not an Avon line. ok? :D) and b)through Beauty Bar.
This one is a compact-powder blush and has medium-pink colour with a peach undertone, which gives my face that natural flush of colour and it smells like a crayon. What I like about this is that its 100% Natural: meaning it doesn't contain any toxic chemical preservatives, which by the way is the cause of early skin-aging, plus it's made locally, so its 100% Pinoy made.
|NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Orange.|
I got this from Sam of NYX Cosmetics Supplier by Samsville and considered this as a "gift" because it was sponsored by my Mom. :D
This is my first cream blush so I'm really excited about it, so the first time I applied this, my cheek became SUPER ORANGE! (haha. I am so a noob, but no worries...) I've learned that all you need is a little dab to the cheeks to have that fresh-out-of-the-shower flush.
|This blush is very pigmented. I even tried to apply it on my lips! It's such a love. <3|
|swatches of my blushes. :)|
And finally, the most colourful of the lot: my PAC Color Festival Eyeshadow in Rainbow Chic.
|Promise I'll do a look with this soon! (I'm really excited to do one because of the lively colours!)|
Yeah my Mom knows I'm such a sucker for colourful palettes haha. This one is an all-shimmer palette and comes with a mini brush and sponge applicator, and what I love in this palette right here (as for any PAC eye shadows as well) is that its very pigmented. PAC does that because its a Professional Makeup that caters to the needs of TV/Movie and Theater makeups. I know this because my Mom is a fan of PAC cosmetics. :)
|See? These swatches are done with just ONE SWIPE. No exaggeration. :)|
So that's it for my birthday-presents make up collection. :D
What goodies did you receive from a loved-one recently?
Have a nice day everyone! Toodles! :D
