Beauty Credit Lovely Q10 Two Way Cake Moist Review

I have been reserving this review for quite a long time because I wanted to make sure I give myself enough time to test it out. I bought my Lovely Q10 Two Way Cake Moist when I went to Subic last year and I got to using it just the latter part of December for I’m trying to finish up other products that I own.

Beauty Credit is a Korean brand and they have a couple of stalls here in Metro Manila. I have been going gaga over Korean and Japanese brands recently. I feel like they have really good powders and foundations. I also have the Lovely Q10 Liquid Foundation Mat and I am head over heels in love with it! Since I don’t usually use liquid foundation, I had to buy a powder compact for my eveyrday use.


I mentioned in my video that I initially wanted to purchase the Two Way Cake Mat, however it was out of stock. So I settled for the Moist variant. I really wanted to get this because when I tried it out (before purchasing), I thought that it gave really nice medium coverage.


It’s also a big PLUS that the packaging is really really cute! The compact comes with a sponge and a mirror. And you can also buy refills. In fact I actually bought another refill of this. It's very easy to replace.


I got the shade #23 or Natural Beige and actually this is the darkest shade that they have. I’m not really that dark, I’m a MAC NC30. So I think that’s one problem that some people may encounter if you want to purchase this.

So here is a photo when I used it:


Even though it’s the Moisturizing variant and not the matte variant, it did not make me oil up too much. I think that Matte version “may” be better in terms of keeping oilies at bay, but this still didn’t make me look greasy! I had to retouch once because we were going to take photos and I did not want to risk any oiliness.

Here are photos when I got home, after 5-6 hours after application with just 1 retouching of sheer powder:



I’m quite impressed. Again this is the Moist variant so it’s intended for normal to dry skin. But it worked quite well for me. I would still want to try the matte variant just so I can compare. But honestly, I’m really really happy I bought this and bought a refill! I love the coverage because it’s not too heavy. It’s a good everyday powder foundation for people who need coverage. As for me, I only wear this when the occasion calls for it since I don’t need a lot of coverage anyways. But I like the fact that it makes my skin smooth looking!

Meet & Greet ItsJudyTime

If you are a follower on twitter or if you liked my facebook page, you probably have seen me tweet and post about the Meet and Greet with Judy of ItsJudyTime. I have to say I was ecstatic when I learned that she was holding another M&G in Manila and I made sure I was present!

The Meet & Greet was held at Red Mango in SM Mall of Asia and I think I've said this in twitter, I don't go to SM MOA. Well for one thing, it's really really really far from where I live. It takes about 2 hours just to go to the mall. Secondly, I find it to be too warm. There's just so many people and there are only parts of the mall that's airconditioned. However, since it's Judy we are talking about, I made an exception. I dragged my husband along with me. :p


When Judy came, she looked so adorable- exactly what I was expecting. I have always thought that she's so sweet. And she did not disappoint, she was super sweet and down to earth. And Benji was this supportive husband, standing beside her and letting her do her thing.




Benji vlogging for ItsJudysLife

We were asked to introduce ourselves and then we were given a chance to ask Judy whatever. We asked her things about her personal life, about beauty, makeup, what she was wearing that night, vlogging and youtube stuff. She was so gracious and she answered every single one!


 

I was seated with Teena and Say. I'm sure you know them from their youtube channels too.

After the Q&A portion, Judy said that she had some goodies for us. NYX sponsored some products! Yeeey! And mind you, most of the products that were in the bag aren't available in the Philippines (or at least that's what I think). :p


Benji decided to make it a game. They would ask questions and we have to answer them. Some questions were pretty basic especially if you are really subscribed and follow their videos regularly. But some were quite tricky too!

Hello NYX Goodies!


Okay, this will be fun!

Even in candid shots, they're really a beautiful couple.


So everyone, obviously, tried to raise their hands and be the first to answer the questions!



In the end, everyone was able to get a loot bag! :) Ssswwwweeeetttt!




More on this next time :)

After the loot bag giving, we headed straight out the store to get our photos taken with them. I was also able to snap a photo of Judy's ever so supportive mom.

Picture time! :)

You know what it's an event I won't forget because I got to meet one of my Youtube inspirations, Judy. But also because I met so many people who have the same passion as mine- beauty and makeup. I was able to meet some followers that I didn't even know I had, old friends, new acquaintances. It was amazing. My adrenaline was pumping even when I got home!


So thank you to Judy for this opportunity to meet you, Benji and also my fellow Youtubers, bloggers and makeup enthusiasts. You have inspired me and given me the guts to start my own channel and to help other women be and feel more beautiful and for that, I thank you.

Smokey Silver Ready for Prom

Hi everyone! Do you know that Valentines is fast approaching? I actually haven't done any videos for that specifically. Eep! I hope I'll be able to squeeze at least two videos for a back to back series once again. :) If you have any request, do let me know and post it in my Facebook page and I'll get right to it as soon as I can.

Here's another  smokey look, this time working with silver shades! I decided to make this tutorial in time for prom because I know that a lot of young girls like the smokey look and I feel like it doesn't have to be too dark as this will only make you look more mature. Have fun with this look! I actually like this look because I find it to be wearable even during day time. What do you think?
