NO MAKE-UP MONTH.

Posted by Rica Bargo at 6:55 PM 0 comments
Okay. I need to be really honest with you guys... I've been haulin' a lot for these past few months. I PROMISE! I'm not going to buy ANYTHING (Not unless it's from MAC's Limited Edition Collection...) for this incoming month of January and February 2011. Just to save up and to cope up with my savings. That's it for now!


Happy Holidays everyone! :)




xoxo.

Amber Davis - Back Into You

Posted by Rica Bargo at 7:06 PM 0 comments
Just a non beauty related blog for a while... Lyrics from Amber Davis', Back Into You...


Picking up the pieces
Of our broken memories
There's one I can't let go of
That keeps me on my knees
See I know it's half my fault
That we couldn't stay together
But we said no matter what
We'd still be friends forever

How could you turn and just go
And leave me standing so cold
Now you wanna work it out
Tell me what's that all about
How could you up and move on
Like what you had for me is gone
Now you wanna work it out
But baby I'm

*Chorus*
Tryin to find my way back into you
When I think of how you left me (left me)
Baby it's not easy
But I'm tryin to find my way back into you
When I think about you've moved on
Baby it's just so hard

I never quit my love for you
Baby that's the truth
Too hard for me to move on
When I feel this way for you (for you)
See I know sometimes we need our space
Baby that's ok
But if you really loved me
Why'd you leave that way
Tell me how

How could you turn and just go
And leave me standing so cold
Now you wanna work it out
Tell me what's that all about
How could you up and move on
Like what you had for me is gone
Now you wanna work it out
But baby I'm

*Chorus*
Tryin to find my way back into you
When I think of how you left me (left me)
Baby it's not easy
But I'm tryin to find my way back into you
When I think about you've moved on
Baby it's just so hard

Tryin to find my way back into you
When I think of how you left me (left me)
Baby it's not easy
But I'm tryin to find my way back into you
When I think about you've moved on
Baby it's just so hard

Heaven knows every second
I'm away from you
I find it so hard (yes)
Find it so hard (yes)
I'd give anything to find the strength
To be with you
I want it like you do (yes)
Want it like you do (yes)
I just need some time
To find peace of mind
But before you go
I want you to know that I'm

*Chorus*
Tryin to find my way back into you
When I think of how you left me (left me)
Baby it's not easy
But I'm tryin to find my way back into you
When I think about you've moved on
Baby it's just so hard

MAC Venomous Villains on October 7!

Posted by Rica Bargo at 7:01 PM 0 comments


MAC did a collaboration with Disney this Fall called the Venomous Villains which features the famous Villains from some of the Disney Cartoon Movies such as 101 Dalmatian (Cruella De Vil), Maleficent (Snow White), The Evil Queen (Sleeping Beauty... Please correct me if I am wrong.. I'm a bit confused with Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. LOL!) and Dr. Facilier from The Princess and The Frog the Movie.

Here in Hong Kong, Venomous Villains will be out to the MAC Counters this coming October 7, I just checked the MAC Counters last Thursday. But oh! I have some preview for you guys! Thanks to my source, I got my hands on these two lipsticks a month ago! :D




I got Innocence, Beware! which is a Light Yellow Pink with a Cremesheen finish, and Sinister, which is a soft brown plum with a lustre finish.



Sinister, Innocence, Beware!


Innocence Beware for me looks very nude, families of Creme D'Nude, Hue, etc. While Sinister is purplish and very sheer on me. I think I need to swipe around 3-4 times for the Sinister before I can get the buildable coverage that I wanted for my lips. I haven't tried Innocence, Beware yet, but for Sinister, it can take around 2-3 hours max before it melts to your lips.



Sinister


Innocence, Beware!


Sinister, Innocence Beware!


I still have 3 more items on my wishlist for this collection which includes:

Toxic Tale Lipstick - Bright Coral, Satin
Darkly My Dear Powder Blush - Dirty Brown Plum, Matte
Bite of an Apple Powder Blush - Soft Coral Pink, Matte


I can't wait 'till I get my hands on them on the 7th! Hopefully, after work, they're not yet sold out here!!!

Posted by Rica Bargo at 12:23 AM 0 comments
Okay, I must admit, I've been ignoring my blog for weeks now. I've been super extra duper busy with my new job, plus responsibilities that I need to do after work at home... I must be honest with you guys, I've been hauling big time lately... Errrr... I can't even count how much I already spent with make-ups alone in less than a month... I won't post my haul for this past month here for now, I'll keep it a secret. ;) But one thing's for sure, I'll update this really soon! :)

NARS - Dolce Vita Lipstick

Posted by Rica Bargo at 9:23 PM 0 comments



NARS Dolce Vita is my very first NARS Lipstick. I bought it over Sephora (when it was still open here in Hong Kong) for HKD 210. It is a brownish peach / nude lipstick. It's in the middle of all that I mentioned. It's perfect for my shade, since I am classified as having a fair-medium skin-tone. It is sheer, compare to the other NARS Lipstick that I have (Schiap).

I love using this because it can be used everyday, not that loud to be noticed by my mom.

I find it quite hard though to find a perfect blush for this (can you suggest me some, please?). I tried using peachy colored blush to go with this but it doesn't suit.

For the staying power of this, it stays on your lips for roughly 3-4 hours WITHOUT having any kind of liquids. I think that's pretty good for a lipstick.

And take note : It's very moisturizing, scent free and dry free.



Rica's Rating : 4 / 5




August Haul ... PART I ( Part II Coming Soon! )

Posted by Rica Bargo at 8:48 PM 0 comments



Okay, I have to say this, I'm sorry for the long delay, but I've been busy and all that these past few weeks. I haven't been blogging like before nowadays because I have a lot of things to do besides blogging.

I am currently doing some online studies for my career, so that's taking most of my time lately. Also, summer classes are up, and I got loads of classes lately. I've been working 5 days a week lately, meaning, only 2 days that I got to stay at home, if I don't go out on my holidays.

Also, I've been on a search for a new job for the incoming school year since last school year was over. But the search is over, I already found a new job. Yey! Anyway, enough talking! Here are my purchases for this month. It's quite a lot, but there are more to come because I asked my sister to buy me some more stuffs from USA this August. YES! She's coming back here in Hong Kong for her summer vacation and I asked her to buy stuffs for me that cannot be purchases here in Hong Kong. Anyway, here's my own purchases. PART 1!

H&M - Bronzing Brush

Posted by Rica Bargo at 5:44 PM 0 comments



This is the crappiest, useless bronzer I've ever encountered. I got this on sale from H&M last winter season. Since I got two pieces of bronzers at that time, I decided to use the other one first, and this one later on. And so, I used up my favorite bronzer already and now, it's time to give this one a try and my first reaction the first time I swiped this onto my face?! How come I can't see any changes?! Maybe I should put more on... How come I can only see glitters?! Damn!

Well, first, the brush sucks. It's a very hard type of brush, I don't even know where H&M got these materials from. It irritates my skin and it's very hard to make the powder even to my skin. Second, this is more of a highlighter in "bronze" than a "bronzing powder." All I can see is glitters and no brownish reaction to my face whenever I put them on.

I'm very much disappointed with this product that this will go straight to the bin! OUCH!

MAC - In The Groove Lipsticks

Posted by Rica Bargo at 3:30 PM 0 comments
( Call My Bluff, I Like It Like That, All Styled Up, Jazzed )

Finally, I got to complete In The Groove Collection's Lipsticks. As you have known from my past blog, bf gave me two lipsticks that are a part of this collection, Jazzed and I Like It Like That. I got Call My Bluff last Tuesday, and finally, the last part of this collection's lipstick, which is All Styled Up arrived this morning. I love the colors of this collection, they are very versatile, easy to mix and match. In other words, it's very easy to have fun with these colors. Also, I love the creaminess of these lipsticks. By the way, they are all part of the creamsheen team, which explains that, but only that they are limited edition colors.

I love it when applied to the lips, its creaminess, plus, I love the way they look like, when applied, they have a creamy, full of volume finish, which I love the most in a lipstick's finish. It is also vanilla scented, just like all of the other MAC lipsticks.

I would give these lipstick a 5 / 5 and my all time favorite (although BF don't like it. LOL. )
