Hi everyone! I’m writing this “last” post here on my blog, A Daily Dose of Katsy as I have now officially moved to www.katsyfaustino.com.
It’s been a blast blogging under A Daily Dose of Katsy but I felt that I needed a space that would be more reflective of myself as a person. (I really, really, really wanted a new layout ) Not to mention the fact that I couldn’t keep up with blogging daily.
I do hope to see you at my new online happy place.
A couple of weeks ago, the lovely people at Because Inc. invited me to their 2nd Bloggers’ Event at their uber chic HQ.
I arrived a bit late from the given time but they were just about to start so lucky me :). I was able to attend their first blogger event so I looked forward to this next one because they are always a fun bunch of people to talk to. Plus they said that they had exciting news to share for the 2 brands they carry, The Cream Factory and Saforelle.
Hi everyone! I’ve been sitting on this post for quite a while now so I decided to finally finish it tonight. It might not be super obvious here on my blog that I have embarked on a major lipstick phase because I haven’t posted anything about it (except for the Avon ones) but in reality, I have acquired quite a few in my hopes of finding the perfect three lipsticks for me – the nude, the red, the pink. Hmm.. on second thought, no it’s definitely not the perfect three as there’s still the violet, the coral, and the list goes on and on… Anyway, this particular lipstick I’m reviewing today is my first foray into the world of Matte. I’ve never really gone there you know? Ae always shared her love for matte but I never really understood. I felt that they were too drying and too bold for me that I wouldn’t be able to pull one off. Even though I haven’t really tried a matte lipstick yet, I would always pass up on the chance as I have perpetually dry lips and I was 100% sure that the look would never work on me.
Hello everyone! Today I lament the ruin of 2 of my GWP brushes. The blush brush from Estée Lauder (blue handle) gave up its hair while I was doing my deep cleaning routine. This is the first brush to lose its entire brush head just like that. I don’t think I’ve been washing them wrong as I take special care in making sure that I dry them properly – somewhat flat but sloped enough so that the water will not go into the ferrule.
The bristles of the Elizabeth Arden (gold glittered transparent handle) eyebrow comb/brush suddenly broke when I was making sure that they were dry enough before using. Hmmm… I’m sensing a pattern here. I think I may have eaten too much spinach before cleaning my brushes. HAHA.
Free Brushes with Purchase aka GWPs
The brushes came as part of GWP brush sets from Estée Lauder and Elizabeth Arden, both gifted to me by my wonderful Aunts in the US. Continue reading →
