What's inside my Kikay Kit?

Alow~ Yes hello girls, I can't believe it's already Saturday tomorrow. It's finally my rest day! I am looking forward into learning a lot of stuff during my free time this weekend which includes *drum roll* baking!~ Its cold and it is the best time to bake. I would love to try cupcakes this time around.

And so, before tomorrow comes, I will let you take a quick peek at my makeup whatnots. <3

Yay, so I do have the same makeup routine everyday. Skipping the mascara and eye lash curling (I keep on losing eye lash huhu)

Here is what I have in my makeup kit, some which I have reviewed already. Pretty basic without my favorite Avon nude and brown eye shadow palette and Tonymoly backgel eyeliner which I don't lug around since I don't reapply them.

  1. Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream - I am yet to review this one. But this is a good bb cream. Like I always say I like multi-purpose products because I am always in a hurry during mornings!
  2. Silkywhite 2 way powder Foundation - velvety powder anyone? I also use this as my touch up powder.
  3. Tonymoly Tony Tint Delight - great for gradient lips
  4. Tonymoly Face Mix Concealer - it doesn't last whole day so need to reapply
  5. Nichido Cheek Mousse in Pink Champagne - nicely blushed on cheeks.
  6. Pinkies Collection in LP-01 - baby pink color similar to Sophie Martin's summer pink.
  7. Fashion21 lipstick in Apricot - neutral peachy color that looks very natural when applied lightly.
  8. Contact Lens Case - in case I need to change into my glasses
  9. Nail cutter -just felt like bringing it with me
  10. Hair clip! -for getting rid of my bangs if I have a bad bangs hair day. haha.
  11. Avon Clearskin Acne gel -for sudden breakouts. yikes.
  12. Vaseline Lip Therapy Balm in Cherry -keeps my lips moisturized!

Even though I still buy beauty items I make it to a point that I just buy what I need (for now). Most will be repurchase of products I really use. Let us congratulate ourselves for saving. The cold weather makes less room for melted makeup. Yahoo~ :)

I would be ending my post with Oh my girl's - Closer. They are very synchronized and the song has this very cool mysterious vibe to it. 

*I'm open for product reviews/ sponsorship/ ads and collaborations etc. please email me at: sparkliecandy(at)gmail(dot)com
Items were purchased with my own money unless otherwise stated

My Summer 2013 Essentials

So I was invited to a company outing to Matabungkay Beach in Batangas. We didn't stay long, it's a fast overnight. But I am glad that I manage to see the sand, sea and the sun before the summer ends. Here is what I brought along with me: 
Starting from upper left to right -ZA 2 way foundation, shades, glasses
From bottom right to left -wallet, sunblock cream SPF 45, SBF Collagen Ivory cream, Gluta-C Body Lotion, Nivea lip balm, Etude House concealer and Avon Simply Pretty Lip and Cheek Tint.

Does it sound too much for summer essentials? Oh well~ ZA foundie is a really light powder that simply mattifies look. I was actually leaning to less make-up because we were in the beach! Of course let us not forget about the need for shades and my eye glasses. I usually use eye lenses but I can't swim wearing them so I opt to just bring along my glasses instead. How I wish I can do Lasik Eye Surgery in the future.

Then there is my wallet, actually it is a small make-up kit from Ellana Minerals which I thought would be put to a better use if used as a wallet. Hehe :) I have two sunblock creams for the face, one with SPF 45 and the other one (SBF Collagen) with SPF 25. The SBF Collagen is a beige colored cream, it instantly brightens up my face whenever I use it thus perfect for summer where I don't want to put on too much products.

I also brought my trusted Etude House concealer to cover acne if one comes up. I also have Avon tint for long lasting natural blushing cheeks and Nivea lip balm to avoid looking sick, my mom says I have pale lips. For the body I have Gluta-C lotion, I used this as my sunblock and my sunburn is next to none. I really won't even know I had sunburn if my mom hasn't told me about it because it was barely noticeable!

So again while using the photo editor I mistakenly set it to 400px. which made my originally 1200px. photo smaller. Arrgg~

This is me before we went swimming!
 My Lovely readers, care to share the place you spent your summer? Don't feel shy to leave a comment, I don't eat people! :)

My Name is Chien has moved!

I don't know how many of you have noticed but I finally bid wordpress goodbye. I just moved to Blogger after continuous hacking attempts I can't fight any longer. I have been with my hosting and wordpress for 2 years but problems have just arose weeks ago and there is nothing I can do. I feel more comfortable now that I am in blogger. I've never thought that security issues will be the reason of my move, I have never seen it coming.

I feel bad for letting my readers see constant 404 errors and I guess more of that soon, since permalinks of blogger and wordpress is different. My blog has been kicked out of the top search results which is kinda sad. I just hope sooner or later after hard work my blog can still recover.

I am still in the process of recovering posts, re-uploading images (yes they were left behind in my hosting account), checking all broken links and setting up all codes needed. Even my favicon is not showing, errr... I might need to wait for full propagation. I pray that everything will be fine.

Okay so to brighten up the mood, here is my current music obsession: LED APPLE: Time is Up. My bias is Kyumin who kinda looks like Tao of EXO. Next in line is Hanbyul who is hands down too cute when he danced to Expectation! Hahaha. I just love love love this song, it's upbeat and even their guitarists can dance!

 Great thing there is K-pop to lessen my worries and stress. Lol. I won't lose hope! There is always a tomorrow. AJA! <3

EDIT: Kyaa finally found a way to redirect my old link to my new blog! No more 404 error! *happy*

Addicting love stories

I just realized that it's raining. I really don't like the rain, it gives me headache. I am trying to post more often here, my domain and hosting is nearing its expiration again. I don't want to waste my web space. ;)

Out of the topic I found this romantic and cute music video made for Adam Sandler's short version of Grow old with you.

I am loving too much love stories lately...

  • Mornings: Ooh lala couple, Please be careful with my heart
  • Noon: Rooftop Prince, Smile Donghae
  • Night: The Greatest Love

PS: There are a lot of searches for the 'The Greatest Love' theme song -Dugong Dugong. We are so much in love with it ne?

Busy-busy September now ends

After a long week in Magsaysay Training Center (MIHCA) I had to take a break, for the next practicum on Monday. That is why I have decided to take a stroll at Victory Mall which is near at my house.

I quickly spotted a store full of cosmetics of I-dont-know brands. Their products is obviously from China, just by the looks and the smell of it. But I cant resist the fact that they are still indeed cosmetics and for me they look so pretty so I did went inside to take a close look of the products.

The selection is complete from the most common face make-up- compact powders, blushes to eye shadows, lipsticks, lip glosses and the not-so-common- false lashes and colored hair waxes. What amazed me is they even sell the moist lotion I blogged about before and so does various bb creams which all has the same qualities: no smell and no coverage. I wonder how come they classified them as bb cream?

Anyway that sums up my post for the week. This month is busy but totally fab!<3

Beauty in a budget from Regenesis

September is an early sign of Christmas, dont you think this is just perfect for a 'pamper me time?'

I heard this tip from BEC of Mygorgeouspinkcheeks. I have not tried any facial treatments nor cleaning yet so if ever I’ll take this chance, it’ll be my very first!

10 facial and diamond peels for only 3000 bucks, so it'll only be P300 per session which is so affordable! This treat is surely tempting but I must say that there is one downside, because although Im a tourism student I am still a dummy with directions! But of course I know you are not like me so here is the exact location of Regenesis:

Regenesis, The Face and Body Boutique is located at 2/F Metrowalk Complex, Meralco Ave., Pasig City
For inquiries, you may call 584-3709 or 0922-847-8810
We are open from Monday to Saturday 10am to 8pm.

Let me know your experience with their service once you avail them. :)

Im currently: Annoyed as I had to post this twice as I have saved my wrong draft. Arggh~ Im turning green. LOL.
