Test post

Am not sure if I can post pics using the safari browser for iPhone. So am checking now if I can do it.

I cannot, for the life of me figure out how to post picture blogs using my blackberry, or maybe globe's GPRS speed is just slow. Anywho, am checking to see if I can do It using my iPhone. I hate that blogger still does not have a native app for iPhone!! Grrr!

Or maybe they do, I just can't for the life of me figure out how to do it/access it.

Do u guys know any native blogger app for iPhone and/or blackberry?! Or even a decent third party app. Drop me a comment below. :)


Nope. Can't post pics here too. Boo.

First Impressions: Revlon Colorstay Foundation

so I recently acquired the Revlon Colorstay Foundation from my local SM dept. store. thing is, mine doesnt have the softlex thingy which i just realized now. I also got the combination/oily variant. The main reason I got it is because I don't want my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation to to run out on me before i have the time and the resources to replace it.

First Impressions:
before I bought my bottle, i had myself color-matched last wednesday. then i bought my bottle last friday, and had the lady apply it on my face with the revlon primer.
i dunno if my skin's just that oily but  with the primer, it didn't last more than 3 hours on me. i'll have to test it without the primer to see for sure.

also, i never noticed it from the testers, but my bottle have this distinct alcohol-y scent that i've never smelt from any other cosmetics i've owned. it bothers me a little cuz the scent's really strong, but it goes away after a while.

the lack of a pump does not bother me as much cuz i've been used to my estee lauder double wear one which doesnt have a pump as well.

i can't comment on shade choices too cuz the sand beige one matches me perfectly.

i like that coverage is really good that i can apply it without a concealer and still look good.

price-wise i think it's reasonably priced. at 825 for a 30ml bottle, i wouldnt call it expensive but considering the staying power, i wouldnt call it cheap as well. it costs about 1/3 of what i would normally pay for a 30ml bottle of double wear foundation and just about the same ratio of staying power so i guess you get what you pay for.


what i like:
- great coverage
- i have an exact shade match
- widely available
- reasonably priced

what i don't:
- strong alcohol-y scent
- staying power does not appear to last that long.

do you encounter the same scent? and the same staying power? i'm really bothered with this cuz i had such high expectations with this product.

January 2011 lootbag

as i've mentioned a while back, i'm trying to budget my money and allot just 1500 per week or 6,000 per month on cosmetics/fashion. since i went a little above budget, i'm cutting it down to 4,500 for the month of February, as a self-imposed punishment. 

items bought:

1. balmbini palette by the balm cosmetics - 1695
 i've always wanted to try the balm products because they have such a cute packaging and the colors seem to just pop. i decided to get the palette cuz it showcases some of their bestsellers and i am pretty much in love with it! :D review soon.
i cant wait to get the time balm foundation and concealer and see how it works on my not-so-perfect skin. am also itching to get the stainiac and the balms away tinted moisturizer.

2. O.P.I. nailpolish - 395 each
quarter of a cent-cherry - a deep red shade
lincoln park after dark - darkest purple i've seen. almost black but not quite.
i've just recently found a love for nailpolishes and other nail implements and i decided to start getting my nailpolishes from OPI cuz i've been hearing and reading lotsa goodstuff about it. :D i cannot get over how fast this nailpolish dries! seriously.

a. blush in amour - 1350
i love my orgasm blush to the hilt. i'm still reserving judgment on amour.

b. greek holiday lipgloss - 1350
i have the roman holiday lip laquer (i think that's how it's spelt. i'm tamad to google it) from my bridal palette and i love it. i wanted to give this a try. and imma be honest here. the name shade was my sole basis for buying it. XD

c. single cream shadow in corfu - 1150
i wanted to see how it pits against my Rubenesque paint pot from mac.  the mac paintpot has been my go-to neutral base for so long and it's never failed me. Corfu is in a deeper and completely different shade than Rubenesque, but it works perfect to pull the no-make up look, especially as i top it off with the All That Glitters eyeshadow from mac. :D

d. Firming Foundation - priced at 2750, i think
i got this one as a freebie from nars. i originally wanted to get the sheer matte foundation from nars, priced at 2450 but when the Nars lady at Rustans told me that they give the full-sized bottle of the firming foundation as a freebie for every 3500, i didnt think twice. i decided to choose other products from nars to be able to get the freebie. as you can prolly tell am a prime target for all those marketing strategies. lol.

if you did your math, you'll know that i'm a couple of hundreds over my budget and that's why i've clamped my february budget as "punishment"
