A Blog Award - 7 things you might find interesting about me

Posting of this award was long overdue, sorry guys. Well, better late than never.

So here it goes....

To Golden, thank you for this award. I've been missing your posts lately, girl! How have you been? I hope everything's well with you and your family : )

To accept this award do the following:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

7 Things About Myself:

1. No matter how rough things are going, I always try to look at the brighter side of it and still manage to let out a smile.

2. I judge a guy's personality by looking at his shoes. No, not the brand! It has to be clean. Dirty-looking shoes for me spells smelly feet. Of course if it's raining then it's muddy...what I mean is dirty unwashed sneakers...blechh!

3. I can't sleep with the lights on while my hubby sleeps with everything on (lights, tv and kids jumping on the bed), no need to compromise..he can sleep through anything.

4. I work best under pressure... or is it an alibi for procrastinating? ^_^

5. I have a lot of makeup in my stash that I rarely use.. if at all.

6. Hubby never courted me. We were just friends for the longest time, knowing each others flaws and strengths, gradually building a relationship based on friendship. Our marriage is not perfect but we hurdle the trials that come our way by talking it out sans the drama.

7. Ironing clothes is like Latin to me.

Now, I pass this award to:

Get that Pinkish Glow from Prestige

These cuties really got me excited today as I was browsing through the "goodies" at Beauty Bar at Robinson's Galleria. I remember stumbling upon them at Nouveau Cheap some months back. I never thought it would be available here in the Philippines.


Prestige Perfectly Fresh Cheek Tint & Prestige Perfectly Pink Color Adjusting Lip Shine!!

Packaging is really sleek and cute. Perfect for any kikay kit (girlie's make up kit)

There are 2 shades ( i think). I picked the Rosy, the other one is Sunny ( more orange-y in color). Rosy gives a very subtle, just-pinched glow on your cheeks ( please see bottom photo for swatch). It's not sticky nor creamy or waxy. In fact I'm clueless on how it really feels on the skin 'cos it feels... nothing. It just glides on your skin and imparts that pinkish glow.... i just love it!!

Shade: Rosy

This is much similar to Smashbox Oh Glow for the lips, sorry I'm not all too familiar with Oh Glow as I dont have one. But I saw a tester once at Beauty Bar.

I find this a bit sticky on the lips. Maybe because I'm not really a fan of high-gloss, high-shine lip products. But, yes it comes out clear on the tube at first and it gradually turns to pinkish after a few seconds of application. I looked like I ate lechon ( roast pork, a Philippine delicacy) when I have it on my lips. It makes a good lip moisturizer 'tho and the hint of pink is really nice.

Swatch of Cheek Tint on my arm. Notice the nice pink glow?? sweeeet : )

What made it more exciting is the price!
Perfectly Fresh Cheek Tint is at 375PhP, Perfectly Pink Lip Shine is at 295PhP

Hope It got you excited too!

'Til next...
