Colour Collection Perfect Cover Cream Concealer



Last weekend, I spent good 3 hours going through photos saved in my laptop. Due to limited space, I had to erased some and transferred the rest to my hdd. While I was going through those treasures, I realized I still have a lot of backlogs that deserve a space in this humble blog of mine, hence, a series of backlog posts. I'll start it with the Colour Collection Perfect Cover Cream Concealer.


The most recent pimple breakout that I had due to an allergic reaction left me with countless marks. Saying that I totally disgust it is an understatement. I could just cry my heart out but I know that doing such won't make much of a difference. So yeah, I chose to just accept it and deal with it.

Since waiting for the marks to again match my skin color would take time, I conceal them every single day. I'll be sharing the way how I conceal blemishes soon but for now, let's us talk about one of the concealers I use to cover those unwanted marks.


A creamy concealer that hides imperfections, evens out discoloration and diminishes the appearance of dark spots and undereye circles.
The lightweight formula contains Vitamin E and the moisturizers to help smoothen rough, uneven skin. It blends seamlessly to the skin helping you achieve flawless coverage all day.


Colour Collection Perfect Cover Concealer has a standout salmon color which means it is good in neutralizing the blue and dark blue undertones of the skin. It is not the usual concealer that fully covers imperfections, instead it corrects the color making the skin look naturally flawless.


I LIKE that it ...
  • is creamy. It glides and blends on the skin without tugging and pulling.
  • neutralizes the color of the skin,dark blue undertones specifically, seamlessly. 
  • stays on for about 4-5 hours.
  • doesn't crease when used on the undereyes.
  • is housed in a compact packaging that is easy to tote around.
  • gives light but buildable coverage.
  • doesn't have any pungent smell.
  • feels light on the skin.
  • is affordable for only Php300.00++.

I DON'T LIKE that it ...
  • doesn't fully conceal blemishes, especially the dark ones.
  • is only available through Tupperware dealers. 
 
This is how it works on my undereyes. Notice that it really doesn't cover the darkness, thus, it neutralizes the color making the undereye appear brighter and smoother.


Though it is not enough to conceal dark, pimple marks, I just use it to neutralize the color and to prep the skin for further concealing. So far, it works perfectly! Stay tuned for my concealing techniques post!


There are times that covering imperfections is not really the key to an even-looking skin. Neutralizing the color can sometimes do the trick. It saves you from putting too much product on your face and from that mask-like look. Let your skin breath while not compromising how it looks and I think, the Colour Collection Perfect Cover Cream Concealer is a good product for that.

Cheers for a great week ahead!

Herbalife launches Herbalike SKIN in the Philippines


Truth be told, I haven't heard of Herbalife before or maybe I did, I was not sure. But when I got invited to attend the Herbalife SKIN launch, I knew I had to be there. Not just because I am a skincare freak but also because, based on my research, Herbalife is a GREAT skincare brand.


The intimate launch was held in Aracama and was attended by a handful of bloggers. The Herbalife SKIN was introduced to us one by one, giving us the facts behind each product. Everything looks promising, I tell you.




Herbalife SKIN products have been formulated with an optimum blend of Vitamin B3 and antioxidant Vitamins C and E, and Aloe Vera to get softer, smoother, more radiant skin and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Created to replenish and rejuvenate the skin with fast results, Herbalife SKIN has been clinically proven to produce visible results in just 7 days. The Herbalife SKIN range is paraben-free, sulfate-free and dermatologist tested.

And as they have said, visible changes could be seen in 7 days. I find it too much for a claim so they let us try it first hand for us to see and feel the difference in an instant. We were asked to remove our makeup with the Herbalife SKIN Cleanser. No need for a separate makeup remover because the cleanser can melt even stubborn waterproof mascara.


I was apprehensive to remove my makeup because I don't have my makeup kit with me that day. Good thing, there was a team of MAC Affiliates to glam us up.



With the instant difference Herbalife SKIN brought to my skin and the magic hands of MAC Affiliate makeup artists, the marks of the recent breakout was all gone as if it never happened.


So how do I find the Herbalike SKIN? One word --- AMAZING! I am loving everything, especially the Soothing Aloe Cleanser and the Line Minimizing Serum. I will be sharing with you how the line works on me soon.

Beautiful ladies who believe that beautiful skin rocks!

Artdeco Jungle Fever: The Bronzing Collection



Artdeco has been one of my favorite brands ever since I got introduced to it about 2 years ago. The Artdeco Eyeshadow Base has been a staple in my kit and the Lifting Lip Stylo is my go-to product whenever I want to achieve that perfect-looking lips. Those are just two of my favorites from the brand and I don't, and won't, mind expanding the list.

Just a few days ago, Artdeco launched their newest collection -- the Artdeco Jungle Fever: The Bronzing Collection. The collection imbibes the feel of exotic flowers and wild animals of the jungle, bringing the elements of a tropical rainforest to the city.


The launch was held at The Glass Door, BGC and was attended by a handful of bloggers, media people and makeup enthusiasts. Getting into the theme of the collection, attendees were asked to paint while enjoying good food and drinks. Yeah, pretty much like Sip and Gogh.



Coming straight from work, I was a bit late to the event. Most of them already started and I, together with relatively poor art skills, had to catch up. Good thing, Amanda, the artist and our teacher for the night, was so accommodating.

Shen and Nikki were on their way to their masterpieces

As I have said, I am relatively poor in drawing. All I can draw decently are my brows! I had to direct my entire system to the canvass with the hopes I would produce a decent output.

My toys for the night




After hours of playing as a painter, I present to you my masterpiece -- The Boxer. Well, that supposed to look like a lion. A fierce, strong, king of the jungle lion. But as much as I wanted to and regardless of the thousands strokes of my brush, my lion didn't turn out to look like one. Still, it looked pretty decent. That was what mattered to me in the first place.


Going back to the launch, the Artdeco Jungle Fever: The Bronzing Collection features products that are all shimmering, shining and bronzing.



Bronzing Glow Blusher | Queen of the Jungle

 A combination of three gorgeous, gently shimmering colours that will sublimate your complexion with a gently sun-kissed, radiant flush of blush.


Bronzing Powder Compact SPF 15

A go-to product for a gorgeous, sun-kissed complexion. It features an exclusive Jungle Fever design, contains Inca oil, which nourishes the skin and helps retain moisture.


Art Couture Lipstick | Pearl Mandarin Orange (362) and Pearl Blazing Red (366)

The formulation is deliciously creamy and nourishing, thanks to a special extract from hops, and is intensely-pigmented, for an ultimate statement lip.


Art Couture Eyeshadow | Earthy Brown (12), Golden Earth (20), Sugar Pearl (27)
Green Jungle (32), Golden Green (49), Jungle River (61), Blue Stream (73) and Sweet Violet (83)


These eyeshadows feature a revolutionary texture, which combines the benefits of powder, baked, fluid and creme eyeshadows.


Spray-On Leg Foundation | Sand (3), Sun Tan (5) and Desert Sun (8)
The perfect way to conjure perfectly tanned legs in seconds.

Beauty Box

  The perfect way to store and combine your favorite eyeshadows, and is great to carry around in your handbag.


And as expected, Artdeco again caught me with their new collection. Look at that Bronzing Glow Blusher! Looooovely! It is so calling my name!
Artdeco is available in Beauty Bar stores and online at shop.beautybar.com.ph.
