Beauty Feature in CHALK Magazine August 2010 Issue

Hi girls, if you know me personally Hyper would be one of the words you would probably use to describe me. Now I am more than Hyper and excitement than ever. Why? Because Chalk Magazine's 10th year anniversary issue (August 2010) is now out! I'm excited because this issue features moi yours truly and Maui in their Beauty pages. :)

Me and Maui did make up for 2 real girls who both go to school talking about how their beauty and fashion has evolved in the last 10 years. :) We really had fun during the shoot and now I'm super happy its out. :)

Here it is:

I had so much fun doing this and would like to express my gratitude for this wonderful opportunity. These things are what makes hard work really pay off. :) When I decided to pursue make up, it has been nothing but blessings. Thank you. :)

Love, Rosie and P.S. I love You by Cecelia Ahern

Love, Rosie:  Written by Cecelia Ahern.
4 thumbs up! Frustratingly funny love story of two best friends:-) Different writing style, where the author used notes, card dedications, phone conversations, and emails, the entire time!

 P.S. I Love You: Written by Cecelia Ahern
A very touching story which emphasized the value of family, friendships, and career when life seems to be at mess.  The reader would be anticipating the letter with surprise gifts/tasks made/composed by Gerry to his wife Holly which was to occur each month for the entire first year (well, almost...10 months to be exact) he was gone.  The letters would always end with a P.S. I love you. The story tells how Holly was able to cope up and move on by the help of her late husband's letters.

Max Factor False lash Effect Mascara

Since I have been recently obsessed with Mascaras and making eyes bigger, I recently added to my collection my first ever Max Factor Mascara product.

When I was in the department store jumping from one brand to the other looking for the perfect mascara, the Max Factor stand always draws my eyes. I always had the idea that Max Factor makes good Mascaras but I also always thought the price was just too much for me. But in this visit, I took time and went through their Mascara choices.

Out of all their variants, the "False Lash Effect" really intrigued me. Since I want fuller and longer lashes this was a big big plus. But it was crazy expensive at PHP695. So i looked around other stand and thought over it and went back to Max Factor and bought it. Since I didn't want to test the Mascara in the store (Hello Bacteria and Contamination!) I was seriously wishing and telling myself that it better work. Hehe

Of all Max Factor Mascaras this claims to have the fattest wand. The bristles are made of plastic and have uneven lengths. So what can i say about the Mascara? Is it worth it? :)

Tell me what you think:

Cured lashes WITHOUT mascara


So was it worth it? In my opinion YES. My lashes are now fatter and a little longer. It is also good in keeping up the curl which is a big big plus for me. I have experienced in other mascaras bringing down the curl of the lashes once applied. And this one is a no fail! It doesn't clump too! :)

The only thing I have to say about it is since the bristles are made out of plastic, tendency with plastic bristles is that the mascara is applied wet, but the mascara dries eventually after a while. So you just have t be careful and check that not too much product is on the wand because if so, you will have very wet looking lashes that have clumped. But otherwise if you are careful with the application it should pose no problem. :)

I give this Max Factor False lash Effect Mascara 2 thumbs up! :)

Looks like I found my staple Mascara product for now. What do you think? :)

Toodles! :)

Garnier Light Complete Multi-action whitening cream

About a month back, I received as part of a goodie bag this Garnier Light Complete cream. I was really excited to try it since it's new. Also I felt that it was my lucky day, what the product promises seemed just right for me.

The product comes in a 20ml tube very handy and fits just right in your hand. The size is also convenient and fits in any purse. :)

The twist open cap makes sure that no product is wasted. :)

What is says:

"Garnier Light Complete is a multi-action whitening cream that acts on dullness, dark spots, excess oil and acne marks. It makes your skin visibly fairer while leaving it perfectly clarified."

*Enriched with pure lemon essence, known for its exfoliating properties, it helps remove dullness and visibly lightens acne marks.

*Enriched with derivative salicylic acid with anti-bacterial properties, its oil-trapping formula visibly reduces excess oil and shine for a 6 hour shine-free look .

Its ultra-light texture is non greasy and absorbs quickly into the skin for an all day comfort and shine-free feeling.

Of all the info, the 6-hour shine free and oil-trapping qualities of the Light Complete cream was what sold me. I have a serious case of oiliness on my face, which causes me occasional breakouts which eventually leads to acne marks. And because of my oily skin, getting rid of the acne marks take longer than usual (in my personal observation). So this product is like an answer to all my skincare problems hehe.

Here is what the product looks like, little amount at the back of my hand.

Here it is initially spread, the texture kind of reminds me like mouse, but with more moisture. The description of the product as 'quick absorbing and non greasy' holds true. :) I really love how this feels and sinks in to my skin easily. :)

Fully rubbed in, my skin does not feel greasy at all. No shine and actually has a matte finish yet still very moisturized.

Here's my bare face with just the Garnier Light Complete cream, I'm so loving how this is non greasy! :) My face feels so fresh! :)

Overall, I am loving this product, and hopefully this works for me in the long run. The only thing that I don't really like about it is the smell, it is a little strong, its not a bad smell but its just strong. Hehe :)

Toodles! :)
