Finally, an update!

Unfortunately, I've slipped to a lethargic blogging state again. I've been busy with grad school, moving my ginormous load of trash (we're temporarily moving to a unit across ours while our place undergoes renovation), and occasional shoots. Also, my grandfather and a childhood friend passed away last week. The latter being brutally murdered, his killer still at large. I pray that his death be given justice.

Anyway, here are a couple of pics from a shoot last week held at Pacific Village Alabang.

For the above looks, I used the following products:

mix of MAC studio fix fluid in NC20 and NC45
Kryolan Camouflage Creme in D4 1/2
MAC blush in Eversun
Coastal Scents contour palette
The Body Shop Sparkle & Shimmer Powder in Sunset Peach
Art Deco Camouflage Fixing Powder

PAC quad eyeshadow
Gino McCray eyeshadow in blue
MAC fluidline in blacktrack
Maybelline Vivid and Smooth eyeliner in Forest

MAC in freckletone
Nyx gloss in Cafe Latte

In other news, I decided to join the Elf pool organized by fellow GT member September.

I have been intrigued on the E.L.F. studio line ever since its launch. I was surprised that our local stores already carry the studio line but only the brow powder and the concealer. So I decided to order the following items:

Complexion Brush
Bronzer in Golden
Eyebrow Treat & Tame in Dark
Blush & Bronzer compact

The Studio Line is currently on sale so I got it for 75% off. Estimated date of arrival will be mid October. So for those interested, the order pool is open til tomorrow for the Studio Line and til August 25 for the mineral and regular line. :)
