My Christmas Presents From Parents & Friends!

First of all I would like to greet everyone a "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!" xD Sorry, I've never been posting because of business. Hehe, better late than never... It's Christmas the whole December in Philippines anyway, xD
So I just want to share the gifts my parents gave me this Christmas <3

My mom got me a bottle of Victoria's Secret's Back to PINK... I love the smell so much, I sprayed it on last night after showered until now I can smell the sweet scent of it...

My mom knows that I am not a fan of Fruity (I like citrus but I am talking about Melon, pineapple, cucumber scent LOL) Scents and Flowery scents.. So I really like this, its very appealing, it smells so cute and just right for my age.

Dad got me an awesome computer microphone, for recording vocals and stuff, I like singing... xD
And he gave it to me so I can record in better quality and so I won't have to wear the headset. It's so cute ^.^ I love my parents, they sure are weird sometimes but I love them xD

Also I would love to thank Ate Grace, Tilay and Ate Kei-Jei (Singapore)
for their gifts... ^.^

Thanks Ate Grace for the package... I received stuff from Japan from her..A long sleeve shirt, a white dress, hello kitty mini stuff and a Christmas Card with Mariah Carey's perfume sprayed on it! Thanks!
Tilay (Elaine) for the very useful gifts, a vO5 Curl enhancer mousse (I Love this stuff!), Grey Eyeliner and a cellphone charm ^_^

And Kei-Jei, who's always been so generous to me ever since we met and hanged out at Singapore last August! She gave very cute leg warmers, Thigh high socks, French Manicure Set and Spa Kit! Thank you so much.... :D It's sad that I didn't get to see you when you visited Philippines... I didn't get to give you a present too T~T I really want to give you badly.. xD

Gifts doesn't have to be expensive, its the thought that really counts no matter how lame that sounds (LOL).
It's nice to give gifts from the heart and see people happy, its the essence of gift giving during Christmas.. I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas and please share what your parents gave you this Christmas? xD

Missha Perfect Cover B.B Cream

Mom got this from Korean Online Store and it arrived suprisingly fast, like 2 days after ^.^

This is a nice addition to our BB Cream Collection xD...
I must say that I love it! My mom decided to just give it to me because she noticed that the higher the SPF of the product, her skin gets dry (her skin is super sensitive).
This BB Cream has SPF 42 o.O
I tried it once, never had a problem after using it.

The coverage is fantastic, really. It neutralizes all the redness and uneven color of some parts of the skin, and it has really good staying power. It is good as a foundation itself. I don't have any cons for this product. I really recommend it. You can read the description on the container here...
It doesn't feel heavy on the skin, it gives the right amount of moisture to the skin, but if your skin is extremely oily, I don't think it can control the oiliness.

You get a naturally flawless finish if you use this product, its not cakey up close at all. Smells pleasant, and guilt-free to use because it contains many benefits for the skin unlike using Foundations.

HerBench's Pretty When Pinched

This lip and cheek tint fro HerBench (costs around $2+) is a must have for every girl who just wants a very natural flushed cheeks and cherry lips look...

It is oil free so it decreases the possibility of having pimples when using it.
It only comes in one color though... which is like a color of red wine, but don't worry it won't look as harshly pigmented once you put it on your cheeks and lips.

I remember using the old package of it when I was in highschool, it used to be in Tube and only a cheek tint which is sooo hard to blend on cheeks especially when put over powder, it creates a very ugly effect. But they improved the product now, its more liquid and easier to blend on cheeks. I put mine usually after I put foundation on... Just make sure you blend it quickly, because it will create weird marks on your cheek if you leave it for long... and just blend it with your fingers.

It looks so natural on your lips and cheek. You won't feel like you are wearing lipgloss or lipstick at all. You still feel your own lips, very light.
And your cheeks won't look all powdery at all, just naturally blushed. ^.^
