Chanel Joues Contraste in 160 Innocence

{fresh} Chanel Joues Contraste in 160 Innocence

#chaneljc160innocence

My only pick from Chanel’s Fall 2014 Beauty Collection, Collection Etats Poetique, is this beautiful Joues Contraste powder blush in Innocence.

#chaneljc160innocence

This slightly warm pink, matte blush is devoid of shimmer. Perfect for everyday wear. The texture though is not what I have come to expect of Chanel Joues Contraste. It is slightly drier than usual, therefore you need to dig in a…

Now that the first game day of the season has come and is now over, I would like to express my gratitude.

  • I am extremely thankful to God for all the good and not so good things that has to happen to get J where he is today (not just hockey).
  • Extremely grateful to Coach Justin for being the initial driving force in coaching and training J into becoming the hockey player that he is right now. 
  • We will always be forever grateful to Donna, for being the constant backbone in J’s hockey life. For being honest and strict when needed.
  • Forever grateful to Coach Aram, for the patience and the lessons during a hard period in his “hockey career”. 
  • To Coach Chris. Words cannot express my gratitude. The few weeks that J got to spend with you will stay with him for a lifetime. He respected you, your words are golden to him (and to me). He puts in effort because he knows that your way yields results and he knows it, he feels it. You were hard on him while doing the skills and drills but he does not remember that. All he remembers were “beautiful”, “awesome” and “great job”. He feels that you respect him enough to not make him repeat his mistakes and instead you call him out and corrects it that way he does not feel “embarrassed” that he was doing the wrong thing. And every time we talk about passing, he would always say “Coach Chris said to pass 2 times”. 
  • To Coach Kelly. One thing me and family members who where there to watch the game noticed is the volume and clarity of your voice. I know this you can’t control but it is huge. It makes a big difference to these kids that still need the constant guidance and prompting. I know this based on previous experience. I am a fan because I see your dedication to these kids and that is something you can’t fake. The way these kids are playing is a testament to your coaching. And it’s just day 1. 
  • overall thankful for J and his teammates, for putting in their 110% and just trying to be the best that they can be.
  • thankful for the hugs that I see every time somebody scores a goal

It is just day 1 and it was just awesome. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the season brings.

Along with the gel eye liners from Milani’s Bedazzled Collection, I also purchased all three lipsticks that came with it. I only have one other lipstick from Milani and I have positive experience with it.

Some observations…

  • totally digging the packaging, beautiful gold tube with a sturdy clear cover so you can see which shade you got without having to take off the cover…perfect!

#milaniconstellationgeleyeliner #milanibedazzled

I saw these new items from Milani and they look interesting so I thought “why not?” Personally, I prefer pencil liners but I’m always willing to try something new and/or interesting.

This product claims “vibrant color, long wearing, smudge proof and precision brush applicator”. You can create a classic cat eye or a smoldering smoky look.

The back reads…

I saw this display at a CVS and it made me double back. The eye liner looks pretty. Not something I would use if it’s that glittery but they look so pretty so I got the eye liners and the lipsticks. The display also reads LIMITED EDITION so that really got me interested.

My hot and humid fool-proof makeup

{fresh} My hot and humid fool-proof makeup

It has been hot and humid here in LA lately. And oftentimes I hate putting on makeup just because it just melts off my face as soon as the sun hits me. But with these products I can look put together despite the heat and humidity.

Here’s what I’ve been using lately…

  • Face primer: Black Radiance True Complexion Shine Control Primer– I find that this is the best primer to use with my new holy grail…

Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Palette

Tarina Tarantino is back again today on Hautelook (clicking through this link will give me $20 credit on HL if you decide to purchase). I was never really able to purchase anything from the brand while they were in Sephora. So when they were featured on Hautelook* some time ago, I did not hesitate to purchase some items.

This minimalist face got so many compliments. I was only wearing @esteelauder DW Powder, #thebalmcosmetics Instain Blush in Swiss Dot, #happyskinph eyeliner in Brown(Chocolate) and lippie in Sunset Kiss. I attribute the compliments to this super bright orange-red lippie. I have never used anything anywhere orange-red. Brightens up my face instantly. So loving this. #fotd #motd #makeup #cosmetics #lipstick #lippie #beauty High-res

DINNER IN BED: Because I am bone tired. Did some errands, had my eyebrows done, lunch at UCLA-adjacent, spent afternoon and evening (walking and walked some more) at Getty Center then swung by Little Osaka for requisite CoCo Fresh Tea for some Black Tea with Cream and Pudding and some sustenance via Seoul Sausage’s Flaming and Spam Musubi Balls. I am now a happy mama. #dinner #cocofreshtea #seoulsausage #spam #spammusubi #kimchi High-res

Fragrance Fridays: Bulgari Omnia Amethyste and Lanvin Rumeur 2 Rose

~ purchased by me ~

#bulgariomniaamethyst #lanvinrumeur2rose

For the first installment of Fragrance Fridays, I want to introduce to you two scents I acquired over a membership based website called Rue La La.

I’m not going to pretend that I know how to describe scents to great lengths. I would just like to feature fragrances that I have or wish to have and maybe their notes and what they remind me of.

First one is Bulgari’s Omnia…
