My First La Mer Purchase and Experience

Lifestyle, Skin Care and Make Up Reviews By October 10, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , , , No Comments

I have to say that in the past three weeks, I have been accumulating skin care and make-up products in my quest for the best possible regimen and it all started with a news article that was in my Google news feed – What Every Guy Can Learn from Kim Kardashian West’s Skincare Routine. In this article, what caught me most was the emphasis on La Mer products.

I went on the La Mer Europe website and started browsing at the many products available from the brand. In the end, all I really, really wanted to buy was the La Mer Renewal Oil. It sounded very promising!

In the end, I walked out with the La Mer foundation, concealer, and bronzing powder instead. Before this, my entire make-up collection consisted of everything Sephora. I have been living make-up free since I moved to El Nido in 2013 so I didn’t know anything.

What I liked about my Douglas boutique experience was I got the exact shade of foundation and concealer that I would have gotten wrong had I bought them on the website. To be honest, I already had the foundation and powder in my cart on the website but actually testing for the right shade was probably the best thing that ever happened to me.

The Beauty Junkee and Me

Not without a little embarrassment, I set out to write this blog that will let people know what I have been up to the past month, and that is – make-up.

I have never been into make-up really. I was always the tomboyish kind. My sister always had to remind me to powder my face, and the only thing I don’t ever go without is eyeliner; but because I have been close to being bored to death the past month, I decided to try out something different.

So I started frequenting Martha’s beauty blog, not for anything but because it was different from most sites I visit, “most” meaning mommy blogs, artist blogs, writer blogs, travel blogs, and photography sites. Martha has always been into make-up. I had loved seeing her all made up when we we’re still working together in theater. It’s not that I have not been into make-up at all. Being a theater person required you knew how to put on make-up on yourself, but I was not quite inclined to putting make-up on regularly or when going out.

Last month, I decided I wanted to try out a personal make-up class. So for one afternoon, together with make-up artist Leah Tulang of The Make-up Corner, we set out to do all kinds of basic make-up on ourselves. Not that I didn’t know that already, I just wanted to see if there was something else out there I needed to know.

Night Make-up Look, with Leah Tulang

Yes, I looked different. How fun! I even look like I have more weight on me than actual. Or maybe that wicked grin was just me trying to make my red lipsticked lips look thinner.

We then moved on to doing the smoky eyes look that I have always been curious to learn. Ta-dah! Smoky eyes look achieved, I suppose. This photo was taken at home, after it endured four hours of travel, a movie and walking in the rain.
