FOTD: Yabu MOA Launch

Face of the Day and What I Wore To—the Yabu launch in Mall of Asia. You can read about the good food (read: new dishes!) here or over at Sarie’s blog. I wore this face for a work date, but retouched my eye makeup and reapplied my lipstick before heading on over to Yabu. The blush had faded noticeably after around four-and-a-half hours of wear. Decided against reapplying because I kinda like the flush it left. On my face: Face: Ahava Light Foundation (Medium/Light Sand), The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Pore Minimiser Eyes: Benefit Lemon Aid, K-Palette Cover Control 0 Kuma Concealer (02 Yellow Beige), Guerlain Écrin 4 Coueleurs Eyeshadow (Turandot), The Body Shop Brow Kit, theBalm Nude ‘Tude (Sassy) as highlighter) Cheeks: NARS Blush (Sin) Lips: Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura (Celebrity Beige)

Guerlain Turandot Eyeshadow Palette

Turandot is a 4-shadow palette (Écrin 4 Coueleurs Eyeshadow) from Guerlain’s 2012 Holiday Collection, Liu.

Because I might as well be a grubby little mole hermit, I went on to Nordstrom and ordered a palette for myself. It’s easily the most I’ve spent on a quad, alas, it was too pretty to pass up. Also, I didn’t know if this would hit Manila shores. The SA I talked to when I went to get my météorites said that it would be a while before it was available here. Thankfully, the shades are easily worn, and I do intend to wear the frak out of this palette. (When I checked Nordstrom for a specific link, I couldn’t find it anymore, so I guess I made the right call. No? Oh, okay.)

FOTD: Guerlain Turandot

I wanted to take my eyeshadow palette from Guerlain’s Holiday 2012 collection out for a spin, so I put it on last minute. I was just tailing something like a press conference before Kent Williams’ exhibit at Blanc in Peninsula Manila. Naturally, I didn’t want to look too made up, so the colors of Guerlain’s Turandot Eyeshadow Palette seemed like a perfect fit. FOTD: Guerlain Turandot, Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Liner in Sepia Ink, MAC Jubilee Kent Williams is amazing. Here is chinny me, appreciating one of my favorite works on display, which happens to be a painted sketch. I have a love affair with these shoes (Clarks Desert Grace). Matching outfit with Nicky. With fellow fangirl, Val! With Sarie (who took all of these photos) and Kent Williams (!). Anyway, I quite like this palette. I’ll review it soon!
