Product Testing: Kris x EB Life Kits

Finally, it is now available!  Not that we had to wait for such a long time since Miss Kris Aquino was announced as the latest Ever Bilena endorser, but finally she has a make-up collection out!

Though she only has a few pieces in the collection, I believe these has been thought of carefully as there are only limited shades for both types of products.  The collection was designed to have versatile and flexible colors or shades that could compliment almost every Filipina skin tone/shade.

I also believe that she’s thought of how most Filipinas are always on the go and the most essential makeup products one could ever have should be for the eyebrows and the lips, that’s why she has the brow liner, brow mascara and lipsticks.  Very easy and quick to use.  You can be done with a simple and fresh look or glam look in minutes!  Day time or night time look, she got that covered with technically two sticks on you hand.

Just one bummer, though, I am missing one lipstick shade here.  The Life lipstick shade is now a best-seller as it went on “out of stock” status when I made an online purchase a few days ago.  Anyway, here are the products!!!:

And here is the link to the make-up review that I did for these awesome products:

 

And here are some shots I took the day after I made my review… I must say that THAT red lipstick shade CONVERTED me from being a nude/pink/mauve shade kinda girl, hehehe!

To be honest, I am not 100% sold with the brow products because I can see a hint of redness with the brow liner, however I like the wand/brush and finish of the brow mascara.  Though I only tried one shade of the lipsticks I am definitely loving this lipstick shade on me!  For me, it’s the perfect matte lipstick as it is not drying on the lips both feel and look of it.  So I am so looking forward to getting that Life lipstick shade!!!

I would also say the same thing as what many Youtube make-up gurus have said in their videos…

“PLEASE HAVE MORE SHADES SOON!!!!”

If you’ve tried these as well, let me know of your experience and how do you find the products so far?

Hope you enjoy watching my video!  Yun lang!

 

Smile always!!!

Improvements In My Photos

After that pre-nup photoshoot I did some weeks ago, I decided to make a few adjustments with my digital camera.  I must admit, I was too lazy to read about photography 101.  I have worked as a digital marketer for about 5 years, which could be a bit technical too, when it comes to online advertising, so I don’t want to go technical in taking photos anymore.  Give me a break, choz!!!

So I took my digital camera again and did a few adjustments in exposure, zoom, etc…  I finally gave in to rotating the camera setting from automatic to manual, and randomly clicked on the button and shot away…

Here are my photos grouped into galleries of photos with no effects, and photos with a little bit of effect, somehow, hahaha!

Some photos with a little bit of effect and drama 🙂

So, did I have some improvements? I hope so.  Please do not ask me anymore about what adjustments I made because I cannot remember what I have done.  I cannot go into technical details anymore, whether I like it or not, hehehe.

Next time there will more better photos, especially those of my clients.

Smile always!!!

Photography Awakening Kuno…

I have long accepted that I am a terrible photographer.  I love taking photos but the outcomes are blaah, blaah, blaah…

Ang papangit ng mga kuha ko sa pictures ko sa Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.  Minsan nakaka-chamba pero madalas mukhang ewan, hehehe.  Maski anong gadget pa ang gamitin ko, sasablay at sasablay ang picture sakin.  Kaya walang silbe sa akin ang mag-upgrade nang mag-upgrade ng cellphone or camera dahil wala namang magiging tulong ang mga yon.  Walang ka-art art at hindi masasabing photographic ang mga pictures na nakukunan ko.  Sabi nga ng ilan, innate talent ang photography, and wala sakin yon.

Ngunit kamakailan (naks lalim!) lang ay namulat ako sa kagandahan ng isang lugar sa Tanay, Rizal.  I did the hairstyling and make-up of a couple for their pre-nup photoshoot at Siera Madre Mountain Resort-Hotel in Tanay, Rizal.  The resort’s facilities are not 5 -star quality… not even 3 star, but the views that they have… satisfying.  Especially if you are a person who loves to see trees and mountains, you will enjoy staying in this resort/hotel.  And if a break from the hustle of the busy city is what you seek, this place delivers that as it is difficult to get a cellphone signal in their area.

A lot of people go here to have their debut or pre-nup photoshoots.  When I say a lot, I mean A LOT.  As in madaming tao!  And because I’m not really a photographer at heart, I failed to get a photo taken at their front gate!  Ano ba namang klaseng blogger yan, diba?

Anyway, I hope you get to see the beauty of the place as I did through my photos…  Again, I don’t have the skills and talent to take great photos, so my camera was set on automatic settings, hehehe.

Of course I had to take a selfie photo 🙂  This is near the entrance of the hanging bridge.

Here are some attractions…

A roof deck sort of area where there were a couple of tables where you can eat your meals.

Hanging bridge… where in take turns yung mga nagpapa-photoshoot 🙂  Bigayan lang talaga.

It’s all about timing… Yes!  Walang dumadaang sasakyan!!!  Tara sa gitna!!!!

There you have it… more camera experiments and discoveries next time.

 

Smile always!
