My Quick & Easy Summer Makeup Look + My Nichido Multiple Stick Review

Hello Candylovers!!! This is going to be my Quick and Easy Summer Makeup Look that is perfect for everyday or if you just wanna have a fresh face especially in the heat of the sun. 
you can watch my video tutorial here:

Here are the makeup products used for this tutorial:
All the products are available here in the Philippines and are very affordable. :)
4U2 Dream Girl Liquid Foundation in Light Beige
Careline Pressed Powder in Tan
Nichido Multiple Sticks in Sunset Glow & South Beach
Wet n Wild Waterproof Mascara in Brown
San San Eyebrow Pencil in 03
Maybelline Tinted Lipbalm in Strawberry
Nichido Eyelash Curler

These are the Nichido Multiple Sticks in Sunset Glow & South Beach.
-The packaging is really nice and cute. 
-It comes in a small retractable taupe colored tube with a printed logo and floral design.
-The size of it is 2.25" in height and 1" in diameter. 
-The bottom part is where they placed the name and other details of the product.
-Very convenient and lightweight
-It's also compact and sturdy; no need to worry if you accidentally fell it off. :)

The Sunset Glow is a coral peach color and has a matte finish while the South Beach is a rosy pink color and has a gold shimmer in it. :) Both shades are suitable for all skin types/colors. 

When I was in Greenhills Watsons looking for some things to buy, a saleslady approached me to try their newest product from their makeup brand, the Nichido Multiple Stick. I was a bit curious because I have never tried cream blushes before and at the same time wondering why they call it multiple stick?? 
So when she asked me to swatch it at the back of my hand, I was really amazed with the result... 
Without thinking twice, I grabbed the 2 blushes and headed to the counter to pay. 
And what's good about it, I got them on sale, 50% off.  I think the original price is P160+ each. (It's like getting the Buy 1 Get 1 promo.) :p

The consistency of the blush is rich, creamy and very pigmented. A little goes along way so be careful how you use it or else you'll end up looking like a clown. LOL! :p 
I directly apply it on the apples of my cheeks and blend away. You can use your clean fingers or stippling brush to blend the product well. The texture is really smooth and it's perfect for all skin types/colors. 
Although you have to set it with a powder so that your blush is still intact the whole day. I also love the fact that it doesn't have a scent and safe to use.

The reason why it's called Multiple Stick is because you can use it as your eyeshadow base or a substitute for your lipstick perhaps. Now that's really impressive. :)

Overall, I like it and will definitely recommend it. :D 
Available in all Watson's Store nationwide.

Virginia Olsen's 2013 Collection Bloggers Launch

Hello Candylovers!!! Last April 19, Friday, I was invited by Ms. Hazel Salcedo, Marketing Assistant of the Virginia Olsen to be part of their 2013 Collection Bloggers Launch held at their main office at Atlanta Centre, Annapolis Greenhills. We together with the other beauty bloggers got to experience the newest products first hand. From their newest eyeshadows to their awesome makeup brushes.

So these are the newest  mineral eyeshadows of Virginia Olsen. They added 10 gorgeous shades to their wide range of colors. 
It will be available this coming May-June.

First, I categorized them according to texture. They added 6 matte eyeshadows which they called
"matte-nificent shades".

It was highly requested by the VOM fans to have more mattes that shimmers. 

Now these are the 4 "sexy shimmers"

Look how gorgeous the colors are. <3 (love at first sight!)

Then, I decided to categorized them according to their colors/shades.
I call them the "warms"



Here are the "on hand" eyeshadow collections

Of course, the swatching never ends... 

and taking photos...

But we have to take a break and enjoy our snack from...
while listening to a short description from Sure Slim Wellness Centre.

Then they introduced their 2013 Limited Edition Brushes.

Starting from Left to Right
Flat Top Brush, Sculpting Brush, Angled Eye Contour Brush, Short Shader Brush & Precision Pencil Brush
The original price for this 5pc brush set is P1900 but they're offering it for only P1500 for introductory price.

The brushes are really soft and easy to use. I personally love the sculpting brush because it really gives my cheeks a sculpted look as easy as 1,2 &3. :)

The VOM Team generously gave us a loot bag. :)
I can't wait to try these babies and do a makeup tutorial about it. :D (Also, bought 2 eyeshadows -Festival & Coffee)
