Monthly Faves: November 2012

Gosh, can you believe it? It’s DECEMBER! So I know that this post is way later than expected, but I’ve been really busy these days and I’ve also been under the weather so please forgive me. Anyway, just like last month, I’ve been experimenting with lots of products and I’ve been using them a lot lately. However, I’ve also been using the same old products that I’ve included in my past favorites, so if you don’t mind, I’m going to start with the ones that I’ve often been using before I introduce to you my new-found loves. Mkay?

Told ya I’ve been experimenting! But don’t be discouraged, this wont take long (I hope, lol). I just decided to enumerate all of them I wont be discussing all of them in detail, because I hope that I would be able to do a review about some of these items.

I. SYOSS Repair Therapy Shampoo & SYOSS Repair Therapy Conditioner | Both 100ML

SYOSS Repair Therapy Shampoo & SYOSS Repair Therapy Conditioner

I’ve been loving this product ever since I got it from my October BDJ Box. Truth be told, I experienced a severe hair loss due to excessive hair coloring last year (yeah, I know) and only Lauat was able to revive my hair. But sometimes, Lauat can be drying even though I use it every other day. This product, however, kinda functions like Lauat, but keeps my hair really moisturized (although I sometimes still alternate it with my Lauat shampoo).

II. Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk | 50ML, Celeteque Dermoscience Hydrolized Moisturizing Mist, Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Balancing Softener & Ponds Age Defense Multi-Benefit Illuminating Cream SPF 15 PA++

Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk | 50ML, Celeteque Dermoscience Hydrolized Moisturizing Mist,  Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Balancing Softener & Ponds Age Defense Multi-Benefit Illuminating Cream SPF 15 PA++

These are the items that I use daily as my skin regimen. I know that I use a lot, but being that I use makeup, it helps prevent breakouts and trust me, I do experience breakouts as well. People near me actually assume that I don’t experience any blemishes/breakouts but I do, and these products are my life savers. Okay, not really, but you get the point.

IV. L’oreal Lucent Magique Skin Illuminating BB Cream

L’oreal Lucent Magique Skin Illuminating BB Cream

I love this BB Cream! So much! I also got this product from my October BDJ Box and believe me, I already emptied this particular tube. I already bought myself a full-sized product. This works like magic (like the name says, lol), it’s pretty amazing. You can see my review about this review right here.

IV. Maybelline DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Nude Chair

Maybelline DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Nude Chair

This was the product that I got from my September Superb Bazaar Haul, and I now get it why beauty gurus all over YouTube go gaga over this concealer. Too bad I didn’t buy a backup last December 04 at the Superb Bazaar Haul. Anyway, I love this concealer. It has a nice consistency and it provides a great coverage especially for my dark circles.

V. Jazzy Cream Foundation in Beige

Jazzy Cream Foundation in Beige Jazzy Cream Foundation in Beige

I don’t actually love this product but it’s just the one that I’ve been using when I run errands and I need a heavier coverage. I’m still experimenting with this product, so let’s see with the coming months on whether I love this or not.

VI. Maybelline Diamond Glow By EyeStudio in Gray Pink & Elf Eyeshadow Quad in Butternut

Maybelline Diamond Glow By EyeStudio in Gray Pink & Elf Eyeshadow Quad in Butternut

Aside from my UD Naked and my WNW Walking on Eggshells palette, these eyeshadow quads are the ones that I’ve been using when I go out these past few weeks.

VII. The Balm Shadow Blush in Hot Mama & Careline Oil Control Blush in Charming Pink

The Balm Shadow Blush in Hot Mama & Careline Oil Control Blush in Charming Pink

I love these two blushes because they are so pigmented. Hot Mama is the one that I use on top of my bronzer and it’s actually considered as a dupe for the NARS Orgasm and I love it because it contains gold shimmers all over the blush but it’s not overwhelming. I also love my Careline Oil Control Blush in Charming Pink, and I love using it when I don’t want a heavy makeup. I like applying it just to have a bit of color/glow in my cheeks without being really noticeable. If you know what I mean. It’s such a gentle color and if patted/applied gently, it’s a prefect blush to mimic that ‘rosy cheeks’ glow that you’d like to have when pinched or whatever.

VIII. Mac Bronzing Powder in Bronzed

Mac Bronzing Powder in Bronzed Mac Bronzing Powder in Bronzed

I was actually supposed to by either NARS Laguna or the Benefit Hoola Bronzer but they’re too darn expensive, so I bought this one instead. This is not exactly as pigmented as the previously mentioned products, but I actually like it that way. It’s not matte, but the shimmer is not that noticeable when applied.

X. Jazzy Eyebrow Gel in Frosted Brown, Eye Of Horus Mascara, Ever Bilena Kleopatra Eye Pencil, Nichido Spot Concealer in Natural & Fashion 21 Shadow/Stick in Smoke

Jazzy Eyebrow Gel in Frosted Brown, Eye Of Horux Mascara, Ever Bilena Kleopatra Eye Pencil, Nichido Spot Concealer in Natural & Fashion 21 Shadow/Stick in Smoke

I’ve been using these products a lot lately. My Jazzy Eyebrow Gel matches my hair color and according to what I’ve read, it’s very similar to Mac’s Girl Boy eyebrow tint. I got my Eye of Horus Mascara from my November 2012 Glamourbox. It’s not exactly a volumizing/lenghtening mascara, but it really defines my lashes so I love using it when I don’t want to have too much drama going on in my eyes. I use my Fashion 21 Shadow/Liner in Smoke as a base for my Maybelline eyeshadow, and I use my Ever Bilena Kleopatra Eye Pencil to contour my crease & my nose. It’s actually a trick that I learned from Ana Victorino’s videos. It’s very helpful and I use that trick when I don’t want to go all out with my makeup. And lastly, I use my Nichido Spot Concealer for tightlining, especially when I want to look ‘awake’ or when I’m going for that ‘pin-up’ look.

X. Jazzy Kiss Proof Lip Gloss in Magenta, Jazzy Kiss Proof Lip Gloss in Rose Pink, Baby Lips in Berry Crush, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Love That Red Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Jewels in Fuchsia Crystal & Nichido Lip Liner in Blaze

Jazzy Kiss Proof Lip Gloss in Magenta, Jazzy Kiss Proof Lip Gloss in Rose Pink, Baby Lips in Berry Crush, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Love That Red Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Jewels in Fuchsia Crystal & Nichido Lip Liner in Blaze Jazzy Kiss Proof Lip Gloss in Magenta, Jazzy Kiss Proof Lip Gloss in Rose Pink, Baby Lips in Berry Crush, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Love That Red Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Jewels in Fuchsia Crystal & Nichido Lip Liner in Blaze

I love these lippies. As you can see majority of these lip colors are pinks and reds. Just in time for the Holidays.

XI. Artist Studio Flat Top Brush

Artist Studio Flat Top Brush

It’s so cheap yet it’s so effective! It works just like my Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki brush and I love it!

XII. Cutex Nail Polish in It’s My Mistique, O.M.G. Crystal Sand Nail Polish in Opal, Jocarste Nail Polish in 8055, Wet N Wild Megalast Nail Polish in Under Your Spell, China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Midnight Mission & China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Harvest Moon

Cutex Nail Polish in It’s My Mistique, O.M.G. Crystal Sand Nail Polish in Opal, Jocarste Nail Polish in 8055, Wet N Wild Megalast Nail Polish in Under Your Spell, China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Midnight Mission & China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Harvest Moon

I love these nail polishes especially the China Glaze Harvest Gold. All of these nail lacquers are very opaque and can go on with just a single coat. But if you’re like me, I actually prefer having 2 coats of nail polish.


So those are the items that I love and I’ve been using for the past month. I’m sorry if this entry is waay long. Well, all of my Favorites are actually long, but don’t worry I’ll try to keep it short NEXT YEAR.

  • Love how you find good cosmetics from those affordable ones to the pricey ones! I’m currently backreading all your posts about box subcriptions, and I’m really enjoying and learning a lot.

    • Thanks! Sorry for the late reply. Sometimes I dont get all the comment notifications from DIsqus -__-

  • hi sis just found this post while i searching for hotmama blush,, gusto ko kasi bumili pero sabi nung nababasa ko same lang daw sa benifit coralista? eh meron akong coralista ang sad lan ndi kita sa face ko.. anu sa tingin mo sis,?mga nasa nc30 to 35 ako ngaun eh..

    • Hi! I haven’t tried Benefit Coralista yet, but I’m definitely interested. I’m also NC 30-35 but this shows up in my face. I love this because it has some golden shimmers/dust that can serve as your subtle highlight, whenever the light catches your face. Don’t get me wrong though, the golden shimmer doesn’t really show up as bold as you see it in the pan. It has more of a satin finish, w./ like I said, a subtle gold shimmer. It’s also a cheaper alternative because this one is only 700+ unlike the Coralista blush which is like 1500+, if I’m not mistaken. Hope this helps.

      • ok sis thanks,, napanuod ko kasi sa youtube kay emily about mga coral shades kasi un eh recommended nya ung hot mama kaya naintriga ako haha.. pero sis ung coralista kita naman sakin kapag may chacha tint sa ilalim..

        • Yeah i saw that too. Pwede siguro. Kinda like what she did? Mag Nars Orgasm ka nalang, if you’re willing to spend that much, lol
