On a Hiatus

Operation Mementos will be snoozing from blogging for two months to center on some issues for discipline.  

I'm hoping to see you again soon!

Amuse Eyeshadow... the pretty that carries something ugly

Look at those colors!  Bright and playful.  Just how I like it.  This shadow has fun written all over it.  And not to mention the price was dirt cheap.  Who doesn't love a bargain?

The colors are very pigmented.  What you see in the palatte is what you will get when you apply it.

But I don't know what's up with this.  I get a bump on my eyelid when I use this.  The bump will disappear the following morning.  I first did not associate the bump with this product but after using it for three times I can unhappily conclude, sine dubito, this is the guilty party.

Gorgeous as it looks I don't think I will be using this again.  Sometimes a bargain is just not a good deal.

Do you have any bargain makeup purchases that turned out to be a bad buy?

Have a blessed weekend!

Another Exciting News!

Cafe Makeup shares with us a glimpse of Chanel's new collections.

This is the second wonderful news for the week!

Guerlain Rouge Automatique

I had my first taste of Guerlain's Rouge Automatique lipstick in February.  The shade I've chosen was Rose in Bloom (162).  I loved how pretty this shade of pink is.  I loved the creamy yet hydrating formula.  I thought it was cleverly packaged though it makes applying not so easy.  Willing to be uncomfortable when applying this shows how much I loved this lippie.

Around mid-May was Guerlain's last day of its long on going sale here in the Philippines.  According to the Sales Assistants they had a change of management.  New set of bosses, new set of rules.  In a panic attack I decided to indulge on a few Rouge Automatiques and KissKiss glosses.

I got three shades of Rouge Automatique: Nahema (143), Champs-Elysees (165), and Nuit d'Amour (170).

I was expecting Nahema to be more orange on the lips but it turned out to be an orange pink.
Champ-Elysees is magenta pink.
Nuit d'Amour is plum.

Have a blessed day!

"I guess hibernation is the opposite of beauty sleep."
-Patrick Star

This is how my day began.

The Face Shop White Tree Snow (Updated)

I was browsing through the shelves of The Face Shop and these caught my eye because it looks a bit like DiorSnow's skincare range.

DiorSnow boasts about Icelandic Glacial Water as one of its ingredients while White Tree Snow by The Face Shop has mineral-rich spa water from Japan and is packed with vitamins A, B, and E.  It's caption reads "Nature's brightening solution for luminous skin."

I got the Clarifying Booster Toner and Whipping Massage Mask to give it a try.  The toner should be used before the mask and after washing the face to remove any leftover dirt.  The mask should be used only once or twice a week.

The toner has a pump on top and it liquid looks like DiorSnow's wipe-off gel.  I would say that this felt cool on my skin.

The whipping mask has a foam forming pump.  It's white like whipped cream when dispensed but slowly turns transparent when applied on skin as it dries.

These products are supposed to renew and soothe troubled skin and protect it from damage.  And as the name suggests it should brighten skin.  I have used the mask only once and the toner everyday for a week now.  So far no breakouts and I can see that my skin looks more alive than usual.

I love DiorSnow but I think this can be an affordable alternative as long as it works well on the skin.

Have a blessed weekend!

After almost two weeks of faithfully using these products White Tree Snow and I are no longer friends.  It gave me three huge gigantic i-hate-you pimples.  I'm going back to my trusted DiorSnow and will never part from it for anything anytime anymore.
