Skin First, Makeup Second - Glossier Haul

Skin First, Makeup Second - Glossier Haul
Monday, December 19, 2016
Read post
After weeks of contemplating whether or not to buy some of the Glossier products, I finally gave in. Thanks to my Dad for sponsoring my beauty essentials and this blog post. 

I ordered from their website and since they don't ship internationally (they currently only ship to the US and Puerto Rico), I had my package shipped in his US address and he shipped my package to my PH address. I know it's kind of a hassle but you know, nothing is hassle to a girl who needs her makeup or skincare fix. 

I wanted to get all the Glossier sets but to no avail, I only got 3 out of their 4 sets. I failed to get my hands on the Super pack because it was currently sold out when I shopped in their site. 

Glossier Phase 1 Set

Of course I need to get my hands on the Phase 1 set because as their tag line goes: "Skin first, Makeup Second"

This set contains Milk Jelly Cleanser, Priming Moisturizer, Balm Dotcom, and Perfecting Skin Tint. Oh, they also gave me a free Glossier tote bag! 

I already tried their Balm Dotcom and Priming Moisturizer, and to be honest I've been loving the two products! I have yet to try their Milk Jelly Cleanser and Perfecting Skin Tint. 

Their Perfecting Skin Tint contains 30 ml and comes only in five super sheer, adaptable shades. This product doesn't give that much of coverage, expect it to be sheer and dewy. This is perfect for everyday use especially if you want to achieve the more skin, less makeup look. 

Glossier Phase 2 Set
Phase 2 is their makeup set and makeup starts here. This phase is for getting dressed everyday. This phase contains three products: the Boy Brow, Stretch Concealer, and Generation G. I've already tried the Boy Brow and Generation G. The Boy Brow is perfect if you want to achieve a more natural-looking brows, also it's easy to use and convenient to carry in your purse. The only thing that I don't like about this product is the packaging because it is made of plastic; making it look cheap. 

I got Generation G in the shade Crush and it doesn't provide that much color in one or two swipes. I am a bit disappointed with its color payoff. But it says in their website that it is buildable, so maybe I should give it another try and I might end up liking it. 

Black Tie Set

This set is limited edition and it contains four new makeup staples design for special occasion glow.  This set is perfect for the holidays because a lot of Christmas parties and Year-end parties are happening this month of December.  It contains No. 1 pencil eyeliner in soft black Graphite, Haloscope highlighter in opalescent Moonstone glaze, lip gloss, and their trademark pink for the nail polish. This set was made in limited quantities and will only be available through the end of 2016.

"The happiest time of year

Is drawing near.

Singing of Christmas joy

And Christmas cheer
Melody fills the air
For all to hear
And counting the stars in the sky

The sparkle in everyone's eye"
-The Gift of Music Copyright © 2009 Scott Yoshimoto

My favorite holiday is almost here! A lot of parties are already lined up and I am excited to make a glam-party look which I can wear over the holidays. I am going to more browns or nudes this year and I want to keep it simple. (Fresh lang, girl!) I actually tried to recreate Joyce Pring's makeup look in one of her shoots. I love how fresh she actually looks! Below are the products that I will definitely use over the holidays! 


Always start with clean and moisturized face! For moisturizer, I'll be using the Total Age Defy Day Cream from the Sephora Collection.  
After moisturizing your face, time to apply your foundation! The most raved foundation by the beauty Youtubers is the Too Faced Born This Way. I personally love this foundation because it suits  very well to our humid weather in the Philippines. 

Next is, you want to set your foundation with Guerlain Les Voilettes - Translucent Compact Powder Mattifying Veil. This powder reinvents translucency by offering a play of velvety, yet radiant, effects.  It sets makeup with a ultra-matte imperceptible finish and weightless finesse.

I will use the BENEFIT COSMETICS Precisely, My Brow Pencil to draw my brows. Using this brow product makes it so easy to do your brows and you will have a natural-looking brows. 
 In setting my brows, I will use the BENEFIT COSMETICS Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel. This is a must after doing your brows so that it will stay on the whole day! This one is very promising and this will definitely step up your brow game. 
The SEPHORA COLLECTION Blush, Bronzed and Ready to Glow! Face Palette is the perfect deal because it has all the things you need in warming up your face up to highlighting! One palette in achieving that radiant complexion? Such a steal!

Another product that I like is the one from BENEFIT COSMETICS Hoola Bronzer. This product gives you that subtle warm on your face, you can also use this to contour. It delivers pure color without leaving behind shimmer or shine.

This ZOEVA Naturally Yours Palette is perfect in doing that very subtle brown look on the eyes. This palette contains all the colors and this can also be used in doing your everyday make-up. 
Onto my least favorite part: applying eyeliner (I still can't perfect a winged eyeliner)
This is SEPHORA COLLECTION 24hr Felt Liner- Intense Black which is perfect in doing your eyeliner because it is so easy to use. I chose this because it claims to provide a 24-hour wear and smudge-proof! Perfect for a whole night of partying! You don't want to have those panda eyes at the end of the day, right? 

After doing your eyeshadow and eyeliner, time to curl those lashes!
This TOO FACED Better Than Sex Mascara is the bomb dot com! Words aren't enough how I love this mascara from Too Faced! I love how the curl of my lashes stay on the whole day and it is also smudge-proof! Perfect for holiday parties!

Your lips are moving!
This TOO FACED Melted Chocolate Lip in the shade Metallic Chocolate Diamonds is the perfect lip product and this gives you that perfect nude lip color.

Don't forget to set your face with the GUERLAIN Meteorites - Light Revealing Pearls Of Powder! Just sweep the pearls over the entire face to set makeup.

Features and Shades Cosmetics is a Philippine makeup brand that had its beginnings in November 2003. They provide high quality cosmetics perfect for Filipina skin. I know how hard it is to look for a makeup brand that will perfectly suit Filipina skin, thank goodness for Features and Shades! Also, their tagline says it all "Just makeup. Just you." 

  • Loose Powder

FS Loose Powder is a fine and weightless powder that creates a matte-natural finish. Its rich and smooth powdered texture gently hide skin imperfections. It comes with a retractable, soft brush that can be detached and snapped back to its stylish, elegant compact. This product comes in two shades and the picture shown above is in the shade Light with a net weight of 20 grams. I usually use this to set my face and it can control the oilyness of my face. I swear by this product; you better get your hands on this loose powder, ladies! 
  • Single Eyeshadow

A collection of matte and shimmery eyeshadow colors with perfectly smooth finish. Each eyeshadow can be easily detached and “snapped” on FS Quad Palette for your own customized eyeshadow set.

I got two shades from Features and Shades Cosmetics namely: Glamour Peach and Ruby Rose. The product contains 4 grams of product. I sometimes use Glamour Peach in highlighting the important parts of my face. These products are really pigmented and you'll get your money's worth! 

  • True Light Liquid Lipstick

The picture above is in the shade Cerise — unfortunately, I don't usually wear this kind of color because it's bright red. But what I like about this product is the packaging because it has a side mirror and a one-of-a-kind illuminating cap which makes color application easy, convenient, and fun even in dim-lighted rooms.
  • Make-up Remover
A gentle, non-greasy makeup remover that thoroughly takes off makeup without drying or irritating the skin. After each use, FS Makeup Remover will clearly leave your skin refreshed and clean!

Features and Shades has a wide variety of products and they are available in our leading department stores nationwide! To know more about their products, just visit their website. Thank you Features and Shades!

OPPO F1S Selfie Expert is not just your average smartphoneit has all the features that you would want your phone to have. 

  • 16MP Front Camera
It is known to be a Selfie Expert because of its 16MP front camera. How doesn't want a high quality selfie? Not only that, its rear camera is 13MP which is perfect in taking landscape images. The F1S also has a 1/3.06-inch sensor which allows the F1S to maximize light sensitivity making for wonderful nighttime performanceperfect in taking pictures of the skyscraper at night. 

  • 5.5-inch touchscreen display
The F1S comes with a 5.5-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels. Youtube is my life, and I can't go a day without watching my favorite Youtubers like Anna Cay, ItsJudyTime, Michelle Dy, and others. So this is perfect for me because it allows me to watch in a bigger screen. Since I am into convenience, I also watch my favorite series through my phone.
  • 0.22S Touch Access
This has got to be my favorite feature of all because it makes everything easy to access or play with your phone. Who wouldn't want convenience anyway? You can also set different applications to launch when you touch the sensor with different fingers. You can either use your index finger in accessing the camera app, or your thumb in accessing your favorite messaging app; it allows you to set up to five customized fingerprint commands. This phone has got to be the smartest of all the smartphones being offered in the market. 

I would want to have an OPPO F1S because it has what it takes to be my new best friend. Also, despite its amazing features, it remained to be affordable. It's a win-win situation, to be honest. 

If you want to know more about OPPO F1S you may check their website. Also, OPPO F1S is available in the market for Php 12,990.00 only

Ten years ago, this flavor was still in the market and my grandma used to buy this for me from our local grocery. Also this flavor has been her favorite!

I haven't tried this flavor from Cadbury Milk Chocolate but this bar chocolate is best shared with my sisters because as others may not know, we are a family of chocolate lovers! During Christmas, we always have a chocolate mousse cake on our table and now, a chocolate mousse chocolate bar?! That's a different story! I would like to share this chocolate bar to my sisters because it perfectly fits their personalities. Since I am the youngest, they are like the chocolate shell which protects or surrounds the chocolate-flavored cream inside (aka me).

      I've attended the said event despite my busy schedule for I don't want to miss this first ever E! Bloggers Ball in the country. In addition, my preliminary examinations just ended and this has been my celebration for making it through our exam week. 

      Also can we have a moment to appreciate this paper flower wall by Oomph Styling!

      I am glad that I was able to have Vino as my date despite his busy schedule. It took us back to our high school prom all over again. (Yes, it's obvious that I’ve been flipping my dress a lot.)

      There was also a booth of Features and Shades on the event! Check their Facebook Page for more details about their products. 

       We really enjoyed the food that they served and the red sapper was our favorite. Thank you City of Dreams Manila for preparing a sumptuous meal for everyone.

      Ended the night with a big smile on my face. Now, back to regular programming - time to face my codals, cases, books, and recits!) 
      Thank you E! Philippines and Clozette for having me. 

      Til the next!
