Face Of The Day: Asia Shift

I usually work on EMEA shift (or mid-shift), however, there are certain days of the month where I have to work on Asia shift (or the normal 9-5 schedule).  On these days, I don't usually don't have enough time to do a whole face of makeup, but I don't want to go out without some color on my face either, ergo, my go to Asia shift look! PS: Never mind my shiny nose.

I used the following products for this makeup look:

1. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer to even out my skin tone.
2. MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Concealer to cover up my dark undereye circles.
3. Eye of Horus Ultimate Brow Define in Dynasty.
4. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara to make my eyes look more awake.
5. Used a bit of NARS Laguna Bronzer to warm up the face.
6. Inglot Blush in #126.
7. Pink Sugar Sugar Tint in Queen Bee for that pop of color.

Gotta Love: Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer

Hello Guys!  Quick intro since I've been away from this blog for soooo long, I've gone makeup crazy over the past couple of months and got a "few" items to include in my collection.  I've had several quick reviews over my Instagram account (@kmcunanan), and hopefully, I'll be able to do better reviews over this blog.

Enough intro and more writing!  First stop is primer.  I've never been big on primers to be honest.  The only face primer that I've tried is Benefit's Porefessional.  However, due to long hours in the office (~10 hours) I needed something to make my makeup last longer.  So trusting my favorite beauty guru, Sharon Farrell, I bought the Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer.  Video of her favorite primers here.

First thing that I would like to comment on is, even if this is supposed to be a drugstore product, it is still quite expensive.  I think it retails for 995 pesos for a 30 ml and I bought it from the beauty section of SM Makati.  Packaging is quite nice.  It comes with in glass bottle with a pump that locks when rotated. 

The actual product is white, although it did not have any effect in terms of color on my face.  It is pretty easy to apply; I just use my fingers to work it in.  I use about 1 and a half pumps to cover my entire face with this primer.  It also has SPF 20.  That's a huge plus!  I still have to test though if it will cause any flashback.

I've been using this primer for about two weeks now and I can say I am really impressed.  Performance is true to it's name.  My makeup did last all through my long work days and it did not budge.  Although I can't say that it mattifies the face that much and prevents oiliness.  My tzone will still get oily though I noticed that it will take a much longer time for the oil to show up and I feel like blotting already as compared to not applying any primer on this area at all.  All in all, it's still a pretty good product and worth trying out.

What other primers should you think I try out?  Please leave a comment below :)

Hey There!

Hey Guys!  I haven't done any posts here for almost a year now.  So much things happened to me in the past year and I can't even imagine how I went through all of those experiences.  Some experiences are quite bad and emotionally challenging, but, most of the time, days went by that are good and things are looking up for me.

I'm not sure why I felt the urge to visit my blog again.  Maybe it's because I'm looking for something else to do while waiting for my download to finish.  Haha!  But hey, I've discovered a lot of things in this past year that I feel like sharing again to the whole wide world (well to anyone who might stumble upon this blog, and for that I thank you for reading and going through my posts).  It's been years since I first started writing as a product of boredom, and also because I wanted something to look back to when I'm older.  Well yes, I'm older now, four years older since I started this blog.  How time flies.

Looking back at my old posts, some make me go ewwww as to why I posted those (omg those old OOTDs!  waaah! ewww to the highest level! hahaha!).  For now, I'm not really sure if I'll be able to sustain this blog again, or if I would like to focus on a specific topic to write about.  Let's just see what the next days would bring.  Tata for now!
