good day ^_^..we went to the mall this morning because we wanted to see how cute those kids in their Halloween costumes were..Lil R on the other hand wasn't wearing a costume,cause we cant find his Spiderman suit...anyway here is a lil pic TuT on how i did my Brown glammed eye look

eyeshadows-(coastal scents browns ..farthest right lane.)(a light shimmery satin shade,bronze satin shade,and a dark brown matte shade)
Mascara-Estee lauder More than mascara
Liner-Stila Smudgepot in Bronze

1.Lightest brown e/s on the inner half of the lid,blend it just above the natural crease line.
2.bronzy shimmer e/s on the outer half of the lid blending outwards following the outer V,blend it with the light e/s above the crease line
3.dark brown matte e/s focusing on the outer part of the eye,blending inwards following the hollow of your eye socket(1/4 of the outer eye)
4.Highligh your brow bones.

5.line your upper and lower lashlines
6.Retouch any harsh areas..





anyway before i move on to the why i hate MAC foundies here's some random photos.


Ice Monsters brownie Fudge...so GOOD!!


then we went to Bench(clothing company) since they're on sale i bought myself a pair of pants..look at my shirt...bought this from Pammy ^^. Mr R liked it..dont mind my bloated tummy ahaha.i LOVE wearing shorts.i can move freely with them.


and this is the pants that i bought.i got those love handles from my momma,its like a mark i cant remove since birth ahaha...=D,my Lil R tried to open the fitting room's door.

and since there were lots of kids wearing a cute monster costumes...Lil R got one himself as well.My lil Warlock.

and now for my why i hate mac rantings...i bought a mac studio fix powder foundation last week and i used it just this morning,its not my first time using this one,i owned one a few years back but decided to let it go cause it broke me out..knowing that experience..i still bought it again and gave it another go..my skin was well before we went to the mall,right before we left the mall i saw a little redness on my right cheek and a small bump,when i looked on the mirror but thought it was just a mosquito bite,then right after i washed my face i saw this marks...(blurred out)

and some more on the right cheek...they're not itchy..i can feel 2 bumps and i think that its going to turn cystic..

i hate mac foundations!!ugh!!it was so dumb of me to let it touched my face again...though MSFs went well with me.their Foundations such as this one clogs and irritates my skin.

i wonder why...this is the only product that doesnt do well with my skin..and my skin isnt sensitive to start with...so this means that "EXPENSIVE DOESNT MEAN THAT IT'LL SUIT YOUR SKIN" its just a matter of finding your Holy grails..and this Mac foundation is definitely NOT mine to keep.

and here is a shot of Me and Lil R...haha..he's sooo adorable...hey..Mom talking here. =D agree eigh?..his smile reminds me of his father's...i call it the "No Eyes Smile" hehe..

so thats it gals thanks for visiting have a nice day and don't forget to give respect to your departed loved ones...XOXO

Product Review:Naris UP Acmedica Medicated Mild Foam Wash

Thursday, October 29, 2009

hello dearies,im back!well actually i never left...im just here again for another Skin Care Review,i was not able to write or post because ive been playing with my Template...and i was so amused that i forgot to backup my template....haha..i got dizzy changing those Css codes,okay so enough about that...Remember my post on My Sasa hauls(mr R)..the naris up acmedica foam wash captured my attention since i love anything that is recommended for sensitive skins,even though my skin is really not that sensitive,since this is for people who are prone to acnes i guess this will be a good mild facial wash for everyday use.



Product Description:
naris Up Acmedica Medicated Mild Foam Wash can lather into rich and gentle foam. It provides gentle deep cleansing and also leaves skin feel soft and smooth.

The amino acids contained helps to effectively lock up skin moisture, preventing the formation of acne.
Naris Up Acmedica Medicated Mild Foam Wash is fragrance and coloring free.

how to use it
Put some onto palm, apply and massage over your wet face, then rinse with water.

this product came from japan....

Pump Dispenser with a cap~very hygienic to me ..i love the packaging ^_^.plus the flowers looks so cute

i never thought that the product itself was a foam...i thought that "Foam" pertains to foamy-er lathering...haha!.anyway you have to get this amount for you to have a nice lather,if not then its as if you didnt use any facial wash while washing,so you tend to pump more,and also i notice that you'll get more foam when you have less water on your face..,so be sure to get a nice foamy lump in one pump.

okay so here is my face before the routinely face wash...oily..gunky..plus the Coastal Scents Gel liner,its very messy for me to take off gel liners when washing..

after i wash my face...no oily residue,no gunk,no more eye shadows,and just a small rubbed hints of the liner on my lower eye part,well im used to that,most facial cleansers that i used made me look like a crying raccoon..the cleanser is odorless so less chemical ingr.

and my skin felt soft,refreshed,and smooth~i also love how clean my face smells after.See how nice it cleansed my skin..and since ive been using this one for almost a month or so..i can attest to its quality,never dried out my skin even if i use it everyday..actually i made this my special cleanser,good for those days when my skin is acting up with nasty pop outs.

PROS:
  • inexpensive!
  • odorless
  • very mild
  • good for sensitive/acne/oily skin(ANY SKINTYPE)
  • Skin felt SMooth and soft after
  • comes in 200ml size
  • nice packaging(so cute)
  • good for everyday use
  • did not broke me out/irritated my skin
  • skin feels CLEANSED and REFRESHED(some cleansers that i used did not gave me this kind of afterwash finish )
  • skin feels moistened
CONS:
  • not locally available
  • some people may find it so~so(especially if you re used to high end skin prods)
  • hard to get a nice foamy lather at first(since im not used to foam cleansers)
Overall..I DO RECOMMEND this product!..this is a good cleanser for everyday use,that is good for any skin type,For the price it passed my expectations with flying Rainbows..

do you have any special cleanser?share it with us in the comment section pls ^_^..

So thats it thanks for visiting dearies,stay safe god bless XOXO

How to:Find out What causes BlackHeads,WhiteHeads,Acnes and remedies

Saturday, October 24, 2009

(photo taken from google)


hello ladies and gentlemen~here is a post concerning people who suffers from those unwanted pop outs in our face..blackheads,whiteheads,and pimple,i know that if not all of us then majority of our population must have had one of those three..and since i myself am one of those people who suffers from this,ive searched a lot of articles and books regarding the Hows,the whys and the whats about them...this post is made on my own understanding of the articles that i have seen,and lectures from my past professors,no copy pasted sentence.this is how i understand them,so its not scientifically defined..

Blackheads...this is also known as open comodones..they are those who have a wider opening,clogged hair follicles by sebum,excessive oils that have been formed in the sebaceous gland another one is our dead skins,you can see that they have those black head like popping out that affixed underneath our pores..the head appears black because it is exposed thus it oxidizes..so it doesnt turn black because of DIRT..,basically it has a yellowish-amber-ish color (unexposed part) due to melanin ...a substance that can be found in our skin,one of its purpose is skin pigmentation....

blackheads are formed because of::
excessive oil production
uncleansed skin(dead skins are formed and accumulated)
makeups
topical creams..
moisturizers

so this are basically anything that we put on our face that can or may clog our pores..

whiteheads:
also known as close comodones...they are those who have closed pores which got clogged by sebums,cellulaar fragments.etc..since it is closed a comodones there is no oxidization,so it looks yellowish-white,we often call this as MILIA,when the skin gets thicker ,it'll be blocked in our epidermis layer...

causes:
excessive oil production
uncleansed skin(dead skins are formed and accumulated)
makeups
topical creams..
moisturizers

so this are basically anything that we put on our face that can or may clog our pores..

these two are the first part of acne or pimple formation...when either of these two were irritated most probably it'll develop into a pimple....how you ask?

over cleansing,exfoliating..(our skin will need to compensate thus reflex over activity of sebaceous gland takes place..)
anything that can irritate the comodones
Stress...due to chemical/hormonal imbalance.

Ways to Remove/lessen Comodones:
1.Tretinoin
2.Benzoyl peroxide
3.Use of Oil Free Moisturizer(for oily skin)
4.avoid touching your face with dirty hands.
6.extract it!...but be sure to avoid pinching it with your own fingers..it might scar or worst turn into pimple..steam your face prior toe extraction to open up pores
7.Avoid wearing heavy makeups everyday..
8.the less facial product the better...
9.Facials,Derma,strips..

obviously even if we did managed to remove then,they tend to come back...as ive said its because we usually incorporate its cause in our everyday routine..especially those with oily skin..so just be sure to have a frequent way to remove those nasty comodones...!!

hope this is somewhat informative to some of you ^_^.thanks for visiting xoxo.

here i go again..i made an eye look that can be worn perfectly on Night parties,Dinner Dates,etc..=D..Since there will be no busy school days for me now,i can blog more often than my usual every other 3 days posting..anyway products that i used is listed below the first photo


  • monistat anti-chaffing gel-primer
  • estee lauder pencil cream eyeshadow-blue
  • coastal scents 88 matte palette(shades of blue,and black e/s)
  • la colors metallic eyeshadow(soiree)
  • coastal scents gel liner (black)
  • estee lauder more than mascara(black)
  • falsies(unknown brand)

adding falsies does make your eyes more awake or dramatic,it did change my eyes' overall appearance,i wasn't planning on having my falsies since its not my field of expertise...but i think i did well ei?


and not only that..look how long these falsies are...haha..so cool!!!.my eye shadows were barely visible...it managed to cover the lids..=D


so i had to look down...=D.


another down gaze shot..i forgot to apply shimmers on my inner corners..

this is not a valid FOTD..haha.this is a no face make up moment...i just want you to see how the shadows looks like from afar..


and look..this is the watch i was telling you about...the "Harajuku Digital Subway Black watch"..harajukus are just so adorable..i think gwen stefani is somewhat connected to this harajuku collection,aside from her "harajuku girls song"..


its a Velcro strap on watch type..what i like about this one is that it has an alarm clock,chrono,timer,calendar,LED,etc.



and i fell in love with the colorful harajuku prints on the strap,plus its good to have a sporty type watch..and its CUTE!!!!my son loves clicking those buttons,i feel like a teen again when i'm wearing this one..


So CUTE!!right!and it doesn't feel heavy!i want to collect the other harajuku designs..but they are kinda expensive so..i think ill settle with only this one for now.How about you?do you adore the harajuku's collection as well?

XOXOXO
thanks for visiting ^_^
