Currently in Rotation: Natural Skincare Featuring Ahava, Innarah, Eve Milan New York

Natural skincare is something I highly favor but given that I regularly test out several brands outside this category, it seems to wane from my radar every now and then. But it's good to be back, thanks to Beautypress folks who sent me some items which include Ahava, Innarah and Eve Milan New York.

Battle of the CC Cream: By Terry Cellularose Moisturizing CC Cream vs. Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Color Control Bright Moisturizer SPF 35

For someone who prefers light coverage with skincare benefits, CC (color correcting) cream seems like an obvious choice. It's great for everyday or daytime wear, more so during summer months because it allows the skin to breathe vis-a-vis soak in the moisture to prevent dry and dehydrated skin. You've seen me featured By Terry Cellularose Moisturizing CC Cream numerous times on the blog, it is for a reason: in terms of coverage, formula and longevity, it has become my go-to CC cream ever since I discovered it last year. I have repurchased it couple of times already, proof that it is really that good. So using it as my benchmark, I want to compare it with Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Color Control Bright Moisturizer SPF 35, a new acquisition which I have been wearing everyday for about three weeks now.

Orange Radiance Feat. Viseart Theory Minx, Viseart Dark Matte, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow, Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream, Clinique Bamboo Pink

Orange is another challenging hue to wear, makeup-wise. While it's certainly a fall color, throw in some bronze and illumination, it stunningly translates to a summer must-rock. For this week's look, I played around Viseart's Dark Matte Eyeshadow Palette (review here) and Theory Minx Palette (review here). For fresh and illuminated face, I used Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream and Guerlain Meteorites Compact (review here), complimented with Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow (review here). I finished the entire look with two coats of Pur Fully Charged Mascara (review here), lined my waterline with Lancome Drama Liqui Pencil Embrase (full collection here) and Clinique Long Last Lipstick Bamboo Pink (semi-frost mauve pink).

Spring Blues Feat. Viseart Bridal Satin, Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream, Tom Ford Soleil Compact, Burberry Full Kisses

Blues are probably the most challenging when it comes to eye makeup just because they're a tad dramatic for everyday wear. But I convinced myself to come up with something subtle or daytime-appropriate by carefully selecting well-coordinated hues as well as employ delicate blending strokes. Ready to see my rendition? come check it out!

Review and Giveaway: Gold in Skincare Featuring Allegresse 24 K

Gold in skincare is just one of the many breakthroughs in the realm of anti-aging. Luxury brand Allegresse, being one of the proponents, claims that 24 karat gold helps promote oxygen absorption to the skin which in turn produces uplifted and rejuvenated look. But aside from gold, all Allegresse products are infused with essential oils and plant extracts which help improve the texture and tone of one's skin. I had positive experience with this brand so I am glad to share with you another set of products that are worth checking out. Scroll down for more details plus a giveaway!
