Hollywood Fashion : MAC Riri hearts

A perfect beauty, packed in pretty pink designs,  singer Rihanna colloborated with MAC cosmetics to create this collection.  First to introduce is the RiRi Woo a perfect red lipstick inspired by Ruby Woo and will be sold on May 4 and 5 at Rihanna concerts  at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and will be sold online  via maccosmetics.com.

I love Rihanna’s song but sometimes I don’t favor  her personality since it is somewhat like Lady Gaga with her bad girl image and striking fashion statement.

Although it’s entirely her way, her popularity and stardom could not be questioned. Her latest collaboration with MAC will give four products (which you can see from above picture)  MAC has already colloborated with  Lady Gaga and Nikki Minaj as well.  Just leaving me an impression that they do like girls with worlds in their hands.

The summer collection will includes two additional lipsticks, a Lustre Drops shade and a powder blush duo.  Fall’s 16 sku’s include four lipsticks, a deeply pigmented Lipglass version of RiRi Woo, two multishade eye shadow palettes and false lashes. Holiday will bring another 10 items, including nail polish, a makeup bag and additional lipsticks.

That’s something all Rihanna’s avid fans would look forward too and the name, i so like it, it reminds me “Ri-Ri”  hmm. Now, i should ask my friends not to call me “Ri” again 🙂

The Face Shop – SM Naga City Now Open

The Face Shop added a new branch on their lists of branches around the world.  SM Naga City Face Shop is now open for all customers and beauty lovers.  I would really love to take pictures of their new shop but I’m having problem with my camera cell (that’s another sad story).  Anyway,  i could not help myself to look at their beauty and skin care products and I have noticed that they do have nail polish too which I would really love to try.

 Kim Hyun Joong poster makes me smile and looking at their products reminds me that science and nature really bring happiness to people like me who wished to enhance their given beauty.  The Face Shop shares the same awareness to people to rediscover nature while protecting beauty and nature through their products.

I am definitely looking forward on reviewing their products.

Stylish in Red – San San Nail Polish Review

Stylish Red

I always love having my nails done with beautiful nail polish color.  It’s one part of my body that i so like the most. Well, for some obvious reason, because i can make them long and change the color of my nails on whatever my mood is.

Stylish in Red

 Although, I know how to clean and put some nail polish on my nails, i still prefer  someone doing it for me.  Because, it can make me relax for a while and even sleep for a minute.  Although, it is not advisable to have your nails polished on a weekly basis (because it can lose the nutrients and it can become yellow when polished often).

I’m not particular in nail polish, although I have some favorites, i love playing with different colors and nail arts for sometime. Now a day, i rarely use red in my nails because of my present work in the judiciary especially when i have a duty.  But red is one of my fave color because of it looks really regal, bold and stylish.

San San nail polish is just as beautiful to the nails, it’s easy to apply and the most important part is it’s very affordable. You can buy them on your nearest local HBC store.

Get rid of your old make-up – How to know if it’s time to throw away

If your a make-up addict like me, you might have your make-up filing like crazy and I bet, some of them are still in your closet, either wrapped in plastic or it’s original packaging waiting for you to use them.  It’s good to have a lot of choices but you might also consider the time frame of cosmetics of how long you can keep them on your shelf.

Yes, they could not stay for long as you want them or until you can finally consume it up to the last drop or until it was fully consumed. You will know if it’s time for you to throw away those precious cosmetics. As a general rule, when it is dry ,  the longer of its shelf life but in terms of lotion or creams and liquids , here is the average period you can keep them;

1/2 half year for Mascara and liquid eye liner. Creamy lipsticks, lip colors in pots, lip-gloss: 2 years.  For pencils (eyebrows, lips and eye, 3 years.

While the powder based products like pressed powder, blush on, eye shadow and loose powder, it’s only good for two years.  While liquid and cream products only last for one year.

Good to hear though that your favorite body lotion and shower gel could last for 3 years. While anti-aging cream can last up to 3 months to 1 year but i doubt it can last that long considering that it is much needed product.  I regularly consume them for two months.

Here are some hints that you can throw them away;

Smell the product.  Our nose tells it all, if you think that you already smell a foul odor, there should no longer second thought about throwing it away.

Study the product – yes, you love your favorite blush on and you keep it only for special occasion but the longer it is in your shelf, it might developed some molds and it’s no longer good to use.  When you scrape it and you see that it is already drier, no doubt, you need to throw them away.

The longer you keep your cosmetics on your shelf, the more tendency for them to develop molds and bacteria and who wants bacteria on their precious skin? I bet, you won’t like to have acne or pimple problems.

Being beautiful does not need to have a big amount of money.  All you need to do is to have some creativity and confidence to yourself.  It’s very hard to cope up with the demands of life today and for some being beautiful with the use of cosmetic can cost a lot .

There are many online sites that you can find best beauty bargain under $10 , it doesn’t need to be branded , you just need to look if it’s safe for you before you use it.

My Glam’s facial mask

Glam up your look with make up and peel off mask for less than $10.  It doesn’t mean that because you bought the product for a cheap price, the products itself is cheap.  You got it all wrong.  There are many deals that you can find that you would be proud of yourself for choosing the right one.

 Maybelline is one of my favorite brand and did you know that their product is very affordable and they offer a wide array of different beauty products for less but the quality is not compromised.  When buying online, make sure that you get the chance to check the products before buying it.
