One of the item I bought that day was Wet n' Wild Mega Glo Illuminating Powder and I could not wrap my mind around which product it looks familiar to.
I searched high and low to find out what does Mega Glow's cousin is and all of the sudden it hit me hard. What else but this:
Cargo Beach Blush in Coral Beach

Cargo, how can I not figure it out earlier? The only difference is Cargo Beach Blush is in a tin while Mega Glo is in a plastic container. Oh, and the price: Beach Blush is $26 USD/ 32 CDN while Mega Glo is $3.99 USD at Walgreens!
As I mentioned earlier, I thought the drugstore version would not perform well. After all, it's less than 5 dollars and I do not blame it. However, Mega Glo delivers very well as a blush, highlighter, and eyeshadow palette! The powder is very finely milled which is rare for a drugstore product and as smooth as silk. The pigmentation is good and it has 4 colors to be used together as a blush or separately as blushes, highlighter, and contouring color/bronzer. All for less than 5 bucks!
My rating: I'll give it an A!
I was so happy I had to do a FOTD:
What I use:
Eyes: Wet n' Wild Ultimate Expressions eyeshadow palette in Fantasy Island ($4.99 USD)
Color 1 on the lid, 2 to contour, 3 on the outer-v and as a liner, 4 as a highlighter. This palette is good for 5 dollars and I found it performs much better without an eye primer (paint pot). The colors are pigmented and long lasting. However, it's a pain to pack them on your brush as they are not soft eyeshadows at all.
Mascara: Maybelline the Colossal Volum' Express mascara. I did not take a close up of my eyes because the mascar clumped my lashes up like crazy.
Liner: Jane Be Pure mineral eyeliner.
Lips: Mary Kay Raisinberry lipstick
I was in the mood of flirting with the camera so here's a bonus picture. See the t-shirt? It said "Pitt' on it. My roommate went to Pittsburg for a wedding and got me that t-shirt. However, I told people that Brad Pitt got it for me. I'm cheeky, I know.
This summer I did not exercise at all. However, I lost some weight (~10 lbs) due to a change of diet. If you want to lose weight the way I did, just substitute meat with vegetable proteins like tofu and beans. I swear I eat like crazy while losing weight. Now all I need to do is to exercise a bit so my body can be toned up.
That's it for today. Ladies, take care and be gorgeous!
