Just a quick one guys! This is the look I wore last night when I went to a dinner party together with some friends + boyfriend. Just a ver...
A few weeks ago, I went to the Phil-Cosmetic Expo 2011 at SM Megamall. It was my first time to attend a cosmetic expo so I kinda expect...
When I say "few stuff" I really meant "few stuff"! Lol
The first booth that brightened up my day was the booth of Digital Traincase. It was quite a hassle to go there and pick up some stuff because the booth was really crowded. We actually waited for some of the customers to finish so we can have our turn to shop. Haha.
I'm always tempted to buy lipsticks online but at the same time hesitant since I'm quite skeptical about how the shades really look in real life. I don't want to risk buying something that I am not sure of, especially in lipsticks. Good thing Digital Traincase was present with a tester of everything they sell. I decided to get two round lipsticks from Nyx. Char and I went gaga over lipstick swatching.. and I'm guessing everyone else. Haha! After countless shade-swatching, I finally decided to get the shades, Frappucino and Tea Rose.
|The small thing on the left was a freebie. A Nyx pigment. I love it! Thanks a bunch to Digital Traincase! :)|
I love love love the shades that I got except for the fact that I find these lippies too pigmented.... not in a good way. They're way too soft and melt like crazy. I store these inside a freezer when I'm not using it.
|Tea Rose is the shade on the top while Frappucino is the shade below|
This is how Frappucino looks on me. It is a very natural shade. Perfect to wear on a daily basis. It kinda looks like your "natural-lip-but-better-color" lipstick. I love it so much! I still don't have a photo of me wearing the Tea Rose to show you guys but I guarantee it's also a gorgeous shade. I will definitely be updating this.
Anyway, I'm going to create a separate review on this hairspray when I get the chance to test drive this baby.
|I really wish it was an "EXTRA HOLD HAIRSPRAY" :))|
|The freebie it came with..|
The makeup kit looks like this. I actually love it :) I use this when I need to bring some of my makeup with me when I am in a hurry and have to do my makeup at school in my car. Haha. I am always in a hurry so this kit came in really handy for me.
So that's it ladies! I hope you enjoyed this post! If you have any questions, let me know. I'd be more than happy to be of help :)
How about you? Did you visit the Expo as well? What did you get? Please share it with me.. Feel free to comment or post a link of your haul on the comments section :) Thanks for reading!! :)

Hey everyone! It's been a long time since I last blogged. I've been really busy with school.. Dealing with 8 subjects (4 of which, being majors) almost killed me during our final week! Thank God it's finally over. Our semester break will only last for less than a week though :/ Anyway! Today I am going to do a review on some Geo Lenses that I got from a new sponsor partner, Aigoo Shoppe. Shout out to Val (Valerie Deoferio) for sending these lovely lenses! These really helped me a lot during my stressed out weeks! Val is the owner of Aigoo Shoppe and she is also a beauty blogger! You guys should take a look at her blog and don't forget to follow! :)
Moving on to the review, I received two pairs of lenses: Geo Angel Brown (CM-834) and Geo Nudy Brown (CH-624). I will only be reviewing the Geo Angel Brown lenses since I decided to include the Geo Nudy Brown lenses on my upcoming giveaway for my dear readers. Watch out for my first ever giveaway! I will be announcing that soon! :)
The lenses came bubble wrapped inside a brown paper bag with a cute ribbon tied on it. I forgot to take a picture when it arrived because of my excitement! I immediately ripped everything out to see what was inside. Haha! But nonetheless, here are pictures of the lenses inside their bottles..
Color and Design: ★★★★★
The design is very simple which I really love. The color blends really well with my dark brown iris. I love how I can achieve a dolly eye effect without looking overly dramatic. The color and design is definitely something that I can wear on a daily basis.
Wearing this one was a breeze! To tell you the truth, I am not really used to wearing circle lenses. I prefer lenses with smaller diameters as compared to the bigger ones because I have pretty sensitive eyes. But these? These were really comfortable. I was actually surprised because I expected to struggle with it.. but to my surprise, it didn't. In fact, there were times wherein I forgot that I even had them on. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to try out circle lenses for the first time and for those with sensitive eyes like me.
I have small eyes so I don't like anything bigger than this. For circle lenses and for my eyes, 14.0mm is the perfect diameter.
I love it! No bias! I love how natural looking they look and especially how comfortable it is to my sensitive eyes. I recommend this to all. Definitely a keeper :)
This is a full photo of how I look like wearing the Geo Angel Brown lenses..
|See how natural it looks when worn? :)|
I hope you like it! I will make a tutorial based on these lenses soon! Stay tuned for that :)
