Battle of the Blush

I'm so happy with my blog post title. hahaha! As the title suggests, this post is dedicated to the super pretty blushers in the world of makeup. Let me share with you the TOP blushers i have found and seen, some i have bought, some i am coveting. hahaha!

First up, BeneFit's CORALISTA

I have this and i must say, its so pretty!  Coralista is a slightly sheer, coral-pink blush (duh) that makes you want to go on a vacation. LOL. but seriously, i think it will suit any skin tone and any hair color from blonde to redhead to brunette. It perks up your skin tone and it smells good too! The packaging is a box with a cute safari theme and inside you will find an ok brush which is not that soft, but it does the job. ;) Made in the USA (if that matters to you)

Next up is CHANEL Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 99 Rose Pétale

This blush is a shimmery pink color which i think is perfect for creating that look which glows. it is very build-able and a little bit shimmery. i think this blush is perfect to wear when you go out on a date. Very pretty.

Swatch (Chanel Rose Petale)


MAC by Fafi in Fashion Frenzy

I've had this for a while now and it's one of my favorites, a cool pink blush which can give you that natural glow if you go light but can also give you intense color if you build it up because it is pigmented. A perfect pink blush + cutie patootie packaging = LOVE! hahaha
YSL Touche Blush in 01

What they say,
What it is:
A lightweight, loose powder blush that enhances the face with a sheer veil of color.

What it does:
Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE BLUSH is a true beauty accessory, a makeup concept that transforms blush application into a moment of pure pleasure. The first of its kind to use this packaging, the "radiant touch" applicator allows for the use of ultra-fine powders to create a truly luminous, natural glow to the cheeks.

What else you need to know:The blush is formulated with long-lasting, stay-true pigments that provide a luminous and natural-looking flush to the cheeks, and work for all skin types.

Has anyone tried this YSL blush? Can you give me some details? Is it really long wearing? Is the sponge applicator easy to clean? haha :)

And lastly, the Shiseido Luminizer

I tried this at the store and i must say its so creamy and easy to blend, it doesnt dry out fast unlike some others. I'm still thinking about it. Any thoughts on this?
That's all, i hope I didn't bore you to death with this long post. :)

SA told me on Sunday that they will be having 10 percent off on all Kanebo products, and that she was willing to reserve some items for me. so i opted to wait for 3 more days before purchasing my coveted Coffret D'or SA Eyes in 03 and the Coffret D'or Lip Essence. Who knows, i just might get more stuff on sale today.

Paypal Panic!

Hello, i just want to share with you my panic and my relief while online shopping today. I was checking out to pay on an online store when paypal asked me to verify my account (yes, i am new to paypal), but due to Manila's snail mail system my CC bill aint here yet, and i don't have time to waste on a computer call center agent therefore i couldn't, so i was like, OMG i need to pay for my items stat before they go away! hahaha!

thats where the BF comes in, good thing he was on a happy/good mood he happily obliged to pay for my morning mini-haul! *yay!*

I'm a happy camper again!  I cannot wait to try and make a review blog about the items! :)

An introduction to Coffretgorge

I have been wanting to create a blog for the longest time but i was just too lazy or too uninspired to go for it, so today i decided to give it a go. :)

The name Coffretgorge |kôfregôrj|came from the words COFFRET which means Box and GORGE  from the word Gorgeous and also my name, Georgina. So, this will be my little box of gorgeousness. :)

This is where i'll share with you all of my inspirations, hauls, my wants and my "needs". hahaha! Yes, im a shopaholic and imeldiffic so im always drawn to beautiful things. i just need an outlet where i can put all of my pretty thoughts and communicate with my fellow shopaholics whether it be makeup, shoes, bags, clothes or accessories.

until my next post!
