FOTD: Back to You | Ellana Minerals

I always have a hard time thinking of titles for my FOTDs. I want to use quotes, lines of songs, and random phrases related to the look I did but I shall admit, I always don't have the creativity to think of such. Most often than not, I would show a photo of the look to my boyfriend and ask him to give it a title. Being an I-don't-know-anything-about-makeup kind of guy, he would just ask me to tell him something about the look and he would start suggesting from there. With this look, I told him that I decided to dig into my stash and reuse the makeup stored there. He suggested a lot of good titles but "Back to You" got me. After all, that was the story behind the look -- going back to each and every makeup I have.

I think this will be an on-going series. Once in a while, I will shop my stash and create looks using the makeup I once loved but have forgotten. Will a revisit (re-review) of some make sense? I am also thinking of doing that as well. Too many ideas but I'll deal with it one at a time.

For this look, I decided to again give love to the Ellana Minerals samples I got yeeeeeaaaaars ago! I am not exaggerating here, I got the samples around 4-5 years ago. I loved all the samples I got then but I found the loose powder type to be messy so I didn't bother to get the full-sized. Ellana Minerals underwent a major revamp and I cannot be more excited to try more of its products. But before my wallet cries for help because I will sure be getting a lot, I decided to again use the samples (foundation, concealer, blush and finishing veil) I have one day.

The finish is so pretty I can't even. The coverage is amazing, the staying power is the bomb. I fell in love again.

No editing was done to these pictures, I swear! This is how lovely the foundation, concealer and blush look on me. And now, I am itching to get the pressed versions of these products.

I am not sure if the shades of the Ellana Minerals makeup I mentioned are still available. You can visit to check. You can also get free samples if you're still doubting if the products will also work on you. For me, I need no more samples. I just have to personally see the products so I could get my perfect match.

So should I start the series Shop My Stash? What do you think?

ohhhh last na promise, very beauty queen yung smile ko sa last photo noh? :) Hehe! Chos lang! Happy Friday! :)
