Damn Denim

Another late post of a shoot we did for our FIP Fashion Styling class last October 11 in Batangas which peg was men’s denim on denim. Shout out to my boyfriend, Matt, for lending me two pairs of denim jeans and to my friend Vince for his denim top! Just a few more of these to come so please bear with me.

Lust List: Holiday 2014

Christmas sure is coming up and for makeup junkies like me, holiday collections and gift sets will definitely be the death of our wallets! With that said, I thought I’d come up with a new series on my blog called “Lust List” which is just my lame term for a wish list. Points for trying to be original? No? Okay. 😦

  1. Sephora Favorites Superstars – While others are probably going gaga over the Give Me Lip and More Lip Sephora sets, I am drawn much more to this one. Aside from the fact that I’m not that into lippies, I think that you get more value for money with this set which costs USD 75.00. Out of the 12 products, five are full-sized including the Nars Blush in Orgasm which is USD 30.00 alone. I am personally excited about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown, Bumble And Bumble Surf Spray, Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black, and the Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin.
  2. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette – I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about the Hourglass Lighting Powders and Blushes and have been so tempted to jump on that bandwagon. This palette contains three of their blushes, one of which is an exclusive and a limited edition shade to this set – more the reason as to why I would to get my hands on this product.
  3. Tarte Sweet Indulgences 3-in-1 Holiday Gift Collection – In my previous Tarte post here, I mentioned that the next item on my to-buy list was the Ulta Exclusive Tarte Away Oui Go Portable Palette & Collector’s Set. But! A girl can change her mind, right? After knowing from reviews that the compact palette is just made out of flimsy cardboard, I decided that I didn’t want it anymore. Then talk about perfect timing, QVC launched this exclusive set with everything in full size! Yes, you read that right. 10 full-sized Tarte products and two palettes with 16 full-sized eyeshadows for only USD 72.50! It doesn’t get any better than that, now does it?

Only three items on my list? Well, I’m surprised as you are. How about you, lusting over anything right now? Let me know in the comments!

Too Girly for the Military

Before anything else, I would just like to mention that I’m skipping on my October monthly obsessions just because I have been using the same products and haven’t tried new ones. Hopefully this month I am able to play with makeup again and review more products for you.

Anyway, this post is definitely long overdue since we shot this way back last October 4. Shout out to my friend Sofia for lending me garments for this shoot and to my mom’s closet, too! Here are the photos of my two layouts from our FIP women’s RTW shoot which peg was military. As you can see, the skirts and the lace somehow still reflected the girly girl in me. To be honest, I am not too proud of this project because I know I could have done better but I still wanted to share it.
