Sweet Thing called LOVE

It's important to always look, smell and stay fresh. Whether you're at school, at the mall, or at work, you always have to look pleasant. For Char and Nina, staying fresh is their beauty regimen.
My daily beauty routine starts by washing my face with Pond's facial wash(if my face gets too dry) or Safeguard(if my face tends to be so oily), then I dab a generous amount of Celeteque moisturizer or Pond's day cream. If I'm off to some place else, I swipe my Revlon's Colorburst Lipstick in Candy Pink on my lips or other colors of lipstick/gloss that will match my current outfit and mascara on my lashes. I only use foundation when I'm going to a party or an event. And before I leave the house, I spray on my favorite perfume "Curious by: Britney Spears". The essential things in my routine are my facial cleanser/soap(i'll get pimples if I missed this step), my lipstick/gloss(because my lips are too dry without them), and my perfume(to keep me fresh all throughout the day). -Char
Every morning after I woke up, I wash my face using Celeteque facial wash, damp dry my face then apply my Everbilena studio finish concealer on my eyebags to make it less obvious (I really need this one, especially on my sleepless nights), blow dry my hair, apply Finesse self adjusting mousse cream and fix my curly hair, after that I apply Maybelline mint lip balm for my chapped lips, then spray my favorite perfume Jovan Musk. -Nina
We did a little photoshoot sporting our own personal perfumes. Our inspiration for the mini-shoot is "just-got-out-of-bed" scenario. We have almost no make-up and proper lighting in this one. So if anyone wants to do a collaboration, make up artist and photographer, we're here to model! lol. Can you guess where we did this photoshoot? ---- Behind the window's curtains! Haha! Anyway, it's all DIY so who's to blame, right?

We edited our photos to make it look like a perfume ad! Haha! Titles are invented.

Nina's Jovan Musk and Char's Curious by: Britney Spears

I'm sporting my new hair! Just have it digitally permed at Tony & Jackey's salon. I will blog about it soon!

Some of the scents that we'd love to try soon!

If you have these, tell us in the comment section below how it is for you!

What I look for in perfumes is its capability to mark its scent for the longest possible time. I don't like spraying perfumes multiple times in a day as it is bad for the environment because of the Chlorofluorocarbon(CFC) that it releases that causes ozone depletion. Okay, I'm getting a little nerdy here but hey we gotta get involve at some point, right? So back to topic.. The whole packaging of the perfume attracts me too. If it goes with a unique feminine bottle and box plus it's scent isn't too much, I'll buy it! -Char

Most of my perfumes has citrusy scent that smells light and fresh. I don't like perfumes that are too sweet. It feels sticky. Though I like it when someone else wears it but not on me. And the most important factor that I look for in perfumes is that it suppose to last for several hours. -Nina

Tips for using perfumes:
Perfumes are usually sprayed behind the ears, on the wrist, on the back side of the elbow or in the chest area. It is where the major arteries are found. It is sprayed near on arteries because it is warmer than other parts of our body. In order to spread the fragrance (especially the alcohol based perfumes) you need heat to evaporate the alcohol, once the alcohol is evaporated the fragrance will spread.

Hi girls,

I just wanna share my opinions based on my experience and my mom who is a VVIP/Socialite who got to go a lot of Designers Event.

I've been a devoted user of Britney Spears - Midnight Fantasy, Juicy Couture, Bond No.9 NYC, Annick Goutal, Chloe, Marc Jacob, Moschino and Vivienne Westwood.

For Nina, you said you love something citrusy which is light and fresh, So, Britney Spears - M.Fantasy is not for you. Because M.Fantasy smells so sweet like candy. Trust me.. (all my friends and relatives said that M.Fantasy is like my signature smells because everytime they smell something sweet, it reminds them of me. They said it smells so so sweet they feel like they wanna take a bite of you..)lol.

Try Moschino - Glamour (red and gold) for a sophisticated scent.
Salvatore Ferragamo - Incanto Bloom (white black) for Old-English and roses kinda smells.
Annick Goutal and Bond No.9 NYC offers a lot of variety fragrances but trust me, the price is beyond expensive.
Juicy Couture and Vivienne Westwood offers a lot of scent as well but the plus point is the cute and weird bottles. (they also last long)

TIPS: Frida Giannini (Gucci creative designer) told my mom to try to look for EDP (Eau De Parfum) and not EDT (Eau De Toilette) for a 12 hours long lasting smells.

Hope this help you girls to widen your choice in the future.
Have a nice day girls.

Btw, I followed your blog because I'm looking forward for your next post. And sorry for the super long comment.
