Monthly Favorites: June 2011

Can you believe it? Its half of the year already. Next thing we know its already 2012. Time flies so fast when you're having fun. 

Its the time of the month again (no, im not talking about having your period), its time to list down my favorite products for the month of June.

on my list we have:

1. Revlon Photoready Foundation in 005 Natural Beige- I got this last year but didn't really use it because the shade is darker than my skintone. But after getting a tan from my last holiday, this shade now matches my skin. 

2. Diorshow Unlimited Mascara in Black- i've been alternating my mascaras so I can use them all and see which one really makes my lashes full and curled the whole day. With its small and uneven (length) brush, I'd say this is volumising, lengthening and keeps your lashes curled the whole day.

3. Bobbi Brown Gel liner in Black- love this liner specially when im doing winged liner.

4. NYX Eyeshadow base in 03 Skin Tone- been reaching for this eyeshadow base most of the time. Its not the greatest base but it doesn't feel heavy on the lids and its easy to blend.

5. Bobbi Brown Corrector in Bisque- i use it to conceal my dark under eye circles.

6. MAC lipstick in Dressmaker, Dressmaker- the soft coral color is very easy to wear- day or night.

7. Benefit Coralista Blush- the color says it all. No wonder many beauty bloggers love this blush.

What are your June favorites?

back2mac-no more

The Back to MAC recycling program here in the Philippines is not like the program in other countries (I think) where you can exchange 6 empty containers for a lipstick, lipgloss or eyeshadow of your choice. Here, you can only exchange it for a lipstick where you can choose only from a number of colors. It sucks, I know! But still, being able to get a lipstick for free is not a bad idea. I've done two B2M already.

I've always been eager to use up or depot my MAC products. After depotting 9 of my single eyeshadows, I was so excited I headed down my MAC counter to exchange 6 of the empty eyeshadow pans for a lisptick. Browsing and swatching at all possible colors, I decided to get Vegas Volt. I brought all the empty pans out, and I was surprised when the MUA told me that they dont do B2M anymore. They stopped program since December of last year. :(

Is it only here in the Philippines that they stopped doing the recycle program? But why? What am I going to do with all my empty containers?

The sun is out and its actually perfect because as you're reading this, my plane may have already landed to the beautiful island of Aklan. I will be spending a couple of days at the beach, in Boracay to be precise with my sister and 2 cousins. I am so excited with this trip and had it all planned since January.

Im not sure if I can make posts while I'm enjoying the sun, sea & sand.

So while I'm away, here are some photos of Boracay to share with you..
