Human Heart Nature's Mineral Make Up Line

Having a sensitive skin sucks because it limits me from choosing products in a blur. I have to pick up stuff which suit my skin best, otherwise, I'll suffer. Thank God for mineral make up, I don't have to worry if I break out because mineral make ups are gentle to the skin. What I am more grateful for because my ever trusted brand, Human Heart Nature, finally launched their (almost full) mineral make up line which consists of powder, blush, eyeshadow, lipstick and lip gloss. I bought one for each and will probably do reviews as well.

Moving on, here's a run-through of each product in photos.

Human Heart Nature Mineral Powder in Orient Pearl. Available in four different shades, just choose the one that matches your skintone best---Island Shell, Sand Dollar, Boracay Bronze and Orient Pearl. Each powder costs PhP295.

Human Heart Nature Mineral Eyeshadow in Sweet Innocence. They also have this in Enchanting Evening. I chose Sweet Innocence because the palette is not too loud for day make up. And I'm putting make up on according to my environment. I don't want my students to think I'll go to a night party somewhere while I'm teaching them. At the back of the box, they have an illustration on how to apply it. That's very handy (for me especially because I'm a noob at this). Each palette is PhP225.

Human Heart Nature Mineral Blush in Rosy Cheeks. Also available in Petal Bloom, Tropical Rose and Pink Quartz for PhP175 each. Best if you want to have just the right amount of flush on your cheeks.

Human Heart Nature Hydrating Mineral Lipstick in First Kiss. Sorry about the quality of photo. I'll post a review on this when I get their red shade, Lucky in Love, for comparison. A tube costs PhP195 and comes in different shades: Pink Skies, Coral Kiss, Sweet Nectar, Earth Angel, Lucky in Love.

Human Heart Nature Mineral Lip Gloss in Pink Hibiscus. This is HHN's first time to release lip glosses to add in their mineral make up line. Available in two other shades: Island Berry and Coral Beach, each costing PhP225.

Looking at those figures you'll see how affordable HHN's mineral make ups are, without sacrificing the quality. Head over at Human Heart Nature's website to order yours, too. Or at their Facebook Page to know where you can get yours in their dealers near you.

Look: Cute and Sweet

This is a look that I did on my friend during our photoshoot. The photographer requested that I do a cute and sexy look. I'll be posting the latter next time. :) It's my first time, so it's kinda nerve-racking, but I'm glad it turned out fine and they were pleased with the outcome.

Now for the official photos/ :)

They look so cute, right? :) The concept of this shoot is Nerdy Couple. :P

Super Haul!

This is a collective haul I had for the past month and most items I got are on S-A-L-E! :P This post has a lot of pictures, just so you know and this will be a long post, I guess. Haha. I called it "super" because I bought a lot of items that I'm happy with! ^-^

I got these face products from Ever Bilena in the Mousse collection, which is on sale for Php 99 each, including their blushes. I think the sale started last month and it'll end this month, if what the Sales Assistant told me was right. On the right is the foundation. It's kinda pinkish, but it blends well on my skin. My shade is Acorn. On the left side is their concealer, which is good for the undereye circles and dark spots. I got the one in Pure Beige.

You guys know how much I love bright eye makeup and of course, my brows. So I got this famous Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk, which works well as a base, by the way. I also bought their Cake Powder and Auto Eyebrow pencil, which is orangey when in fact I bought the shade Taupe. I'm not impressed with these which is a bummer. -.- I'd rather stick with my Wet N Wild brow kit.

Onto the lips! Just my basic needs, lip tint, lip gloss and of course, my lip balm. I haven't been wearing any kind of lip product since I had allergies, though. But you know what's the best part of this haul?

TADAAA!! I was browsing absent-mindedly through my News Feeds in Facebook when I saw these pictures under the Album "Sale Items". It rang loudly in my head that I had to see the photos and contacted the seller immediately. HAHA. Those two only cost me Php 1,600.00 when I would have paid Php 2,750.00 if they weren't on sale. :P I've been wanting a palette and a brush set, but kept holding back because of the hefty price tag they carry. I found the matte eyeshadows a bit disappointing though because they're not as pigmented as they appear. I actually found them powdery even with a base. The seller still has some products on sale. You can buy her items here if you want. :)

I bought these items as a set off eBay for the reason that I wanted to try the BB cream more before I go and buy the full-sized one. I got this in #1 Light Beige, which is a few shades lighter than my skin tone but I don't mind since I only apply a small amount on problem areas and it makes me skin brighter! I also didn't break out even after using it for almost a month. A little goes a long way, and yep, I still didn't run out of it until now. Curious about the eye pencil and lip tint? They're just "meh". I can live without them.

I normally don't buy stuffs like these, but when I saw the "Buy one and pay one for 1 Peso", which rings a "Buy 1, Take One" bell for me, I rushed to find a willing partner. Haha. Luckily, one of my College friends wanted to buy this as well, so we got a deal! ^_^ Good vibes, good vibes! I bought this set to practice with since I had this crazy ambition to be a freelance makeup artist. LOL.

These are the only stuffs that I bought for my skin. LOL. I use the Sun flower Beauty Oil as a moisturizer and I didn't break out so far. I hope not because I've been struggling to find a moisturizer that won't give me red bumps every morning. My skin is really picky because I also get itchy when the lotion I use isn't something it likes and Skin White is the only one that won't give me bumps or itch. I'm not sure if it's whitening properties do work, but I'm happy it has SPF 20. :) I use either the blue or this one. The rest are Venus & Mars products, which I haven't used yet. I'd use them for my dark areas, like elbows and knees. :)

I hope I didn't bore you and thanks for sticking with me till the end of this post. Very Harry Potter much, eh? Random fact: I can't express how much I love Harry Potter and I've been loving the series for 8 years or so already. :D

Till next time!

L'oreal Haul

Hey guys. It's been a while! :)

Anyway, I've been so excited to post this haul. I've had these stuff for about two weeks. I want to write a review on each one of them but I think I still need more days to know how I really feel about them. For now, let me just show them to you. :)

Okay, for starters, I got all of these items from the L'oreal warehouse sale. Almost all of the items were 50% off, some were 70% off. Didn't go there myself, though. My friend who works in L'oreal (in the IT department) was kind enough to pick up stuff for me. I would have gone there if I could but that was an office day. Still happy that she got me these, though!

I didn't get a lot because as an official "career woman", I really have to be practical. Besides, I really don't need a lot because I still have unused items on my vanity table. So yeah, I asked my friend to buy me Php1,500 worth of make up products.

So... she got me two Maybelline BB Creams, a L'oreal lipstick, L'oreal mascara, 2 Maybelline powder foundation and L'oreal make up base. That's 7 items for around Php1,300! If I get them from the mall, I'd be (approximately) Php4,000 poorer. So yes, this set is definitely a steal! :)

Reviews on them soon! ♥

Look: Green Smokey Eye

This is my first take on a smokey eye, not really sure if it passed as a smokey look. I had a hard time contouring my crease, since I have slightly hooded lids and I have small eyes to work with. Nonetheless, I still love making up some looks! :)

I used false lashes and made an exaggerated wing to make the eyes more dramatic. Perfect for night outs, parties or clubbings. You can wear this during the day if you took off the lashes or replace it with a natural-looking one and lessen the amount of liner used. :)

Products Used:

Ever Bilena 24 Advance Eyeshadow Palette
Ever Bilena Dip Liner in Black
Wet N Wild Brow Kit
Wet N Wild Lash Intense Mascara
Drugstore Falsies
Skinfood Dark circle Concealer Cream
Nichido Mineral Kohl Liner in Onyx

ELF Pressed Powder in Ivory and Honey()as bronzer
Wet N Wild Effortless Kit
Ever Bilena Blush in Honest and Raisin

Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mauve
Wet N Wild Lipstick in Peach Gold
Maybelline Extreme Moisture Lipstick in Nude Blush (as lip gloss since I find it very glossy or moisturizing LOL. I'm weird like that)

I initially was trying out this look and I liked it, so I decided to post it. I only did my makeup on one side of the face. I just put on powder because I felt lazy. LOL. That's about it, guys! 'Till then. :)
