Ferretti Shoes Goes Online!

This is a super late post, but here's a good news for shoe lovers!!! Local brand Ferretti, launches their new website, http://www.ferrettishoes.com/


Unleash your inner shoe magpie at the chicest shoe store in town: Ferretti. It is a Filipino brand that mostly carries locally-produced products that places high value on comfort and quality. Their shoes are designed and manufactured in the country’s shoe capital, Marikina, using high-quality materials and world-renowned craftsmanship. Ferretti caters to women of all walks and ages, from the carefree student to the hip yuppie; from the no-fuss homebody to the no-nonsense executive. 

A visit to this treasure trove is a full-blown treat for the eyes. There they have shelves upon shelves of shoes in a wide array of styles, from conservative pumps for the office, quirky ballet flats and wedges for casual days, to statement heels for night-outs. They even carry several designs of espadrilles, which is a staple in a tropical country like ours!  

For years, Ferretti has maintained an image of timeless elegance. Classic styles like bejeweled pumps, kitten heels and strappy flats (a.k.a. the step-in) have been mainstays in Ferretti stores. Today, the brand also carries lots of trendy, look-at-me pairs for the discerning fashionista. Ferretti’s platform heels, for example, exude style and attitude that will give any outfit that extra oomph. Best of all, many of Ferretti’s designs are versatile and will be able to take you from day to night.

Once you’re done choosing the perfect shoes, complete your look with Ferretti’s selection of stylish bags. Take your pick from petite shoulder bags, handbags, and roomy totes in up-to-the-minute styles and colors. 

Worried about your strict shopping budget? Fear not! Most of Ferretti’s shoes range from P699 flats and sandals) to P1,500 (wedges and heels). A select few are pegged at P2,000 to P2,500 – but well worth every penny. Bags meanwhile range from P800 to P3,000.


You can now read articles, reviews and shop online via their new fabulous website! They've even got a lookbook to see their latest designs!

San San Age Defense Two Way Cake

Hi everyone! It's a rainy day today. I know a lot of you are just staying home. Me however, I'm at work. Busy because the opening of our new branch is just around the corner. So before all the chaos later, here's a short review that I did for San San Age Defense Two Way Cake Powder.

 San San Age Defense
Two Way Cake Powder

 I got Shade 01 (lightest warm tone shade)





I bought this powder from HBC during their SALE so I was able to get it for only P88.00. It's a steal seriously! Although the retail price is around P150, it's still a good price, I'd say.



It already comes with a sponge because you can use it for wet application. I don't use it regularly, but if I do, I use it dry. I don't really use a lot of liquid products especially for normal days.


Like what I said in the video, it's a little powdery. This is the reason why it's not as pigmented and why it doesn't give too much coverage. Even though that's the case, I still think it's a good retouch powder as you don't really need a lot of coverage for retouching. We usually use a translucent powder but some powders tend to get white, so with this powder since you are able to choose which shade to use, you can already pick out a shade that matches your color.


I bring it with me and use it to blot my oiliness away. It's also got ingredients for anti aging, obviously that's a very good benefit to get from makeup!


I would recommend it as a blotting or retouch powder. If you need heavier coverage, I would suggest you buy a different powder as this won't do. But if you're just looking for something that would mattify the face during the day, this would probably be a candidate. :)

Majolica Majorca Post-Makeover

This is a continuation of my Majolica Majorca makeover. I mentioned that my makeup actually lasted me the entire day without retouching! Here's my proof:


I decided to take photos of my makeup because I could still see the flawless finish of my face. This just proves that Majolica Majorca's products are really worth it!


Only thing that I noticed is that the foundation used doesn't match my skin. It is too light for me. I think I should opt for Skin Remaker Pore Cover BC20 or OC30. I have yet to go back to the counter to try out these shades and find the perfect shade for me.


Look at my beautiful cheeks! Thanks to Majolica Majorca's Cheek Customize PK333 and RD3255.



And lastly, my eyeshadows are still in tact! We didn't apply any eye primer and given my extra oily lids! I was really surprised! I couldn't believe it's still there and it did not budge!


So to say that I am sold is an understatement!!! I am definitely getting stuff from Majolica Majorca! :) What's your favorite product from MJ?

Majolica Majorca Makeover

Good Thursday everyone! I hope you all are having a good week so far. Mine's not so bad either, just busy doing work and also updating my blog. Not complaining though. :) Can I just share, I am quite excited that H and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary next month? We're still in search of where to go though. Any suggestions? Just here in Luzon, driving distance. haha! Thing is, I'm not much of a beach girl. Yes, boo me. Haha! But seriously, that cuts down all the possibilities in half. So I'd appreciate any suggestions from ya'll. :)

On to my post today.  One of the brands that I've been dying to get a hold of is Majolica Majorca. I love their packaging, plus it's the sister company of Shiseido. The first time I saw Majolica Majorca was abroad. I forgot if I saw it in Singapore or Thailand and I already fell in love with the products. So when I saw that they were holding a makeover and their chief artist will be giving a few makeup tips, I made sure to be in attendance!



Here's a peek of what was used on me: 


First thing's first is primer. Skin Lingerie (P695) was applied on my t-zone. This helps mattify the face and imporve imperfections. It also helps keep makeup in place and last longer. Then Marife chose Skin Remaker Pore Cover in OC20 (P1050 SALE price/ P895 refill only) as my foundation. I have to say I am AMAZED with this product! It's so smooth on the skin, it made my face really flawless!


*It turned out that OC20 is too light for me. I think I'm BC20 or OC30.


Next she filled my eyebrows with Brow Customize Set in BR660 (Dark brown) (P295 for the pencil, P225 for the holder, P295 for the powder). I heard a lot about this and it's a genius tool! There's a pencil and powder in one set!



Next it was time for eyeshadows!!! I asked Aimee if Majolica Majorca has matte eyeshadows and she said that they don't. Because young girls in Japan loves their shimmers and glitters! Haha! We chose to use two quads. I asked for a neutral look so we opted for browns and taupes.

Apply taupe shade on the lid and the brown eyeshadow on the crease. Set it with the trick on color (white) for that 3D effect. And the gold shade was used for my lower lashline.


 Illuminator BR355
(Brown)
(P795)

Swatch (+ Flash)

Apply dark golden brown shade on the outer v to add more depth and definition to the eyes. The light gray shade (almost silver) was used for the inner corners of my eye.



Next, I was able to try out their Perfect Automatic Liner in Black (P695). This was used to line my lash line. And I chose to use their Cream Liner in Black (P595) to tightline.


Next is also another favorite, Lash Expander Mascara (P795) was used to lengthen and give my lashes volume. I wasn't able to curl my lashes but I could still see the difference it made to my eyes.



Next is on to my cheeks. I asked Aimee if they contour and she told me that they don't because Majolica Majorca is all about looking natural and youthful.

 Cheek Customize (P495)
PK333
RD3255

Aimee used two cheek customize blushes for my face. The pink she says would look beautiful on my skin and she added a little bit of the golden red tone to warm the blush color.



Of course to finish the look, Aimee applied Rouge Magix Gloss in OR317 (P495) on my lips. It reminds me of MAC Lipglass because of the consistency.

 Loving the packaging!!!

So here's a rundown of the products used on my makeover:

 Lash Expander Plus | Skin Lingerie | Skin Remaker Pore Cover OC20

 Majolook Trick On BR751 | Illuminator BR355 | Perfect Automatic Liner in Black

 Cheek Customize PK333 / RD3255 | Brow Customize Set in BR660 | Cream Liner in Black |Rouge Magix OR317

I want to thank the beautiful ladies from Majolica Majorca for my makeover:

So now here's my photo after the makeover!



No concealing done. That's how good the coverage of the foundation is.

My makeup actually lasted the entire day! :) I'll post a separate entry and show you photos after more than 8 hours! So amazing!!! I can't wait to go shopping soon!
