Jazzy France Dame De Coeur

Saturday, January 31, 2015

I am an "instant" person. I want everything fast and convenient, as much as possible. That's how I became a big lip and cheek tint fan, they make makeup application a breeze every morning. Ask my friends, they know that I rely on these type of products. I even asked for 2-in-one makeup products last Christmas as if I never had enough. 

Anyway, I learned about JAZZY FRANCE, the former James Cooper brand, last week during their brand relaunch. The highlight of the event is their Jazzy France Dame De Coeur.

With Mother Earth and Martha:

The Jazzy France Dame De Coeur is available in 3 different shades, and comes in a compact cube packaging that is both sturdy and cute. I would love to check out the other shades when I visit their booths at The SM Store and Watsons this weekend.

A demo on how to use the Dame De Coeur with Lorraine and Abi:

 Easy to apply, affordable, and pretty, the Jazzy France Dame De Coeur deserves a space in my growing lip and cheek stain collection! Worth a try? Definitely!

Formal in Flats

For a "Sleek Black"-themed event a few nights ago, I decided to steer clear from the expected Little Black Dress + Pumps combination. Other than knowing that that look is just not me, I am forming a new advocacy (hahaha) that you can wear flats / sneakers in a formal setting / event! 

Top - SM Woman
Skirt - Suite Blanco
Bag - Long Champ
Sneakers - Gold Dot

Another idea is wearing a maxi skirt with sleek mandals. I was browsing online shops and found an amazing selection of maxi dresses at ZALORA. This black maxi dress with slit is my favorite.

On another note, I remembered my family's Vegas vacation 2 Christmases ago (read my posts HERE and HERE). We had 2 nights at the Sin City, and it was just not enough! I'll probably be sporting these outfits if ever I'll be given the chance to explore this side of the States more, and visit The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Mixing modern with classic makes these Cosmopolitan Chic looks pass from day to night -appropriate. I can imagine a breezy morning shopping around the resort's 36,000 square feet of retail space in my trusty houndstooth sneakers. Also, I feel that I will not be over-dressed for a casual Secret Pizza lunch, nor underdressed for a fancy dinner at Estiatorio Milos. All these, of course, before heading to a bar or the casino at night. Ahhh, a girl can dream!

Heart Evangelista for Closeup Diamond Attraction

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Last night, I was able to witness another teeth whitening innovation by Closeup during the Diamond Attraction's fancy launch in Black Bird Restaurant, Makati. 

With pretty bloggers Vern, Tracy, and Dani. We all followed the event's dress code: Sleek Black. Red lipstick was just a coincidence, hehe.

What diet? I love the food and wine, especially the mushroom soup. :p

“What elevates Closeup Diamond Attraction from other whitening toothpastes in the market is that it utilizes Blue Light Technology through a blue covarine foam that lessens the yellow tones on teeth, making teeth look whiter and brighter, instantly,” says one of the country’s top cosmetic dentists, Dr. Cecile Infantado.

A demo of the INSTANT whitening effects of the new Closeup Diamond Attraction. Co-created with cosmetic dentists, the new Closeup Diamond Attraction gives you visibly whiter teeth in one brush.

Closeup Diamond Attraction was also tagged as one of the 2015 Best in Beauty picks by top celebrity makeup artist Xeng Zulueta.

Heart Evangelista, the face of Closeup Diamond Attraction, greeted us with her classic smile!

The look of love!

My generation's GIRL CRUSH! She looks extra pretty that night, ramdam ko her genuine happiness. She's glowing!

Nakakakilig! We each received Heart's "makeup kit" with her beauty essentials, including a red NARS lipstick, K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Tattoo, and the new Closeup Diamond Attraction. I love this swag bag.

“Closeup is always looking for ways to innovate and to accentuate every woman’s best accessory, her smile,” said Closeup Senior Brand Manager Gem Laforteza. Armed with the right tools, backed up with confidence and genuine happiness, ahhh, I'll show you a girl who can launch a thousand ships!

Closeup Diamond Attraction is now available in all leading supermarkets.
