Shu Uemura’s Opening at Trinoma

I FORGOT TO BRING MY CAMERA!! These photos are from my Ipod. And they are just few 😦 I was running from one errand after another before I dropped by at Shu Uemura’s opening. I was there around 10:30.. Even if I was busy, I still came early haha so much for being excited!

During the event, I also saw a friend whom I haven’t seen for like 5 years already. Catching up with her while testing make up, I failed to take pictures even more! Haha

Too bad, I was the 11th buyer! They give out a bag of freebies for the first 10 buyers.. But that’s fine with me cause all items are 20% less (except for the color atelier and the 24k gold eyelash curler) They were still able to squeeze a few testers on my bag so GOOD JOB SHU!! (I am such a sucker for freebies!)

Honestly, it’s my first time to be on a make up event.. and I enjoyed it! From the ribbon cutting to the make up testing! Don’t you just love those me time’s with the make up counter? And aside from meeting an old friend, I also made new ones too!

(Check Mazaira-zhi’s blog for a better view of how Shu Uemura opened it’s doors here in Trinoma: http://fugine6wind.blogspot.com/2012/06/shu-uemura-grand-opening-at-trinoma.html )
 
If I could stay there all day, test all the make up they have and erase it, (because I also love the cleanser!) I would! But I had other things to do too. 😦

So after testing several products…I realized that these were the ones I needed most! And it all went down with these two!

Went home with these goodies. The other bag is for a friend 🙂
Here are my new babies!!
Silver: P1095 Gold: P1400 (The silver was 20% less!So thats P876)
Made sure I left a note for them! 🙂

Review: Dove Foaming Make Up Remover

Dove Foaming Makeup Remover

I spent the entire day  in heels and make up, taking up a series of exams and interviews in my favorite hospital. Welcome to the real world for me! I have to snap back to reality and look for a job! My vacation days for passing the boards is officially OVER! Boo!!

So much for that emotional intro! Anyway, I am here to tell you girls, that no matter how tiring your day was, NEVER EVER FORGET TO TAKE OFF MAKE UP! You will regret not doing so! You can skip eye liner, primer or whatever, but never this step. It has to go off, COMPLETELY before you hit the sack.

And here comes DOVE FOAMING MAKE UP REMOVER! I have been using this for over a month now, and I am impressed! It’s the lazy girls’ make up remover if I were to describe it.

WHAT THE PRODUCT SAYS:
* Transforms from liquid into an ultra fine foam, to effectively remove make-up.
*Works by effectively removing even the heaviest of make-up including waterproof mascara, eye make up, and foundation.

HOW TO USE:
Use approximately 3 pumps of the lather. Pump into your hand and apply to your wet or dry face, including your eye areas to remove make up. Rinse off. For best results, use dry hands on a dry face and rinse off. After using Dove Foaming Make up remover, we recommend to wash your face with Dove Beauty Moisture Facial Cleanser

INGREDIENTS:
Water, PEG-8, Isopentyldiol, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisoterate, Glcerin, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Potassium Cocoylglycinate, Ethanol, BHT, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Methylisothiazolinone, Methylchloroisothiazolinone.

WHAT THE GEEK SAYS:
Like I said earlier, it is the lazy girls make up remover. Why? Just look at how easy it is to use. Just pump a few times (BTW, 2 pumps work well for me already), lather your face and rinse off. Just like washing your face with your regular cleanser. It is not oily (it has a foamy consistency), it does not irritate my face, and it leaves it squeaky clean as well.

WHAT THE GEEK LIKES ABOUT IT:
1. It does not irritate my face. Do you get the prickly, hot feeling on other make up removers? This product, does not give you that.
2. It is not oily. When you look at it from the bottle, you might think that it is oily, but NO! It has a surprising foamy consistency once you pump the bottle.
3. It can take away eyeliner!! Gel, liquid, pencil – you name it! Yes! Even the heavy ones!
4. It is CHEAP! Around P300. (I will update the real price when I find the receipt around my desk!) And I bought this for HALF the price! (Yeah, I know, I am always on the look out for cheap products on sale!)

WHAT THE GEEK DISLIKES ABOUT IT:
Nothing much, except that, it cannot remove mascara easily. I use a cotton pad to wipe away the mascara. It is tricky taking every bit of make up on your eye lids and water line, since you avoid getting the product in your eyes. You can’t just take away mascara by rubbing your eyes (That would cause you wrinkles too! Crows feet.. Not cool!) So use a cotton pad, wipes or tissue.

OVERALL, THE GEEK THINKS:
This is great value for your money! Not only should we invest in make up, but also on good cleansers and skin care products. A good skin, is always a good canvas for make up. So, start taking care of it. Especially, since the age of the 20’s (my age) is where your skin is at it’s best. Take good care of it, to make it last til your 50’s!

How it looks once pumped from the bottle (From oily to FOAMY)

P.S.
I appreciate those who visit my blog, I may not have a lot of followers or readers, but whenever I see hits coming from different parts of the globe, my heart leaps! It keeps me inspired to write more! I hope that, even if my blog is a bit of an amateur (Okay, not a bit! It is very amateur!) you girls still learned a thing or two from it. Okay, I’ll stop now, this becomes annoying. Hehe Just comment away if you have questions! Oh! I would love it more though if you girls followed 😉

Shu Uemura: Opens in Trinoma

FINALLY! Shu Uemura is opening its doors in Trinoma. And I really meant doors there, for they are moving from the temporary location they just had (the one near Guess and Mary Grace) to a bigger store! As the picture says, it will be located at the 3rd level near Topshop and Dorothy Perkins.

No longer will we shy away in testing and buying make up, because personally, I am not comfortable trying products when a lot of people walk around and stare at you. The lane that they were in before was just too busy to begin with. So thank you Shu for living up to your promise that the kiosk was just a temporary location!

Here is another GOOD NEWS! Shu Uemura is giving out exclusive SALES, freebies and FREE BEAUTY CONSULTATIONS! So if you are running out on their very amazing cleanser, or you just want to add another pair of falsies from their collection, OR you just want to stock up on make up, JUNE 15 is the right time to visit SHU UEMURA!
