Okay better late than never, here comes monthly roundup #3! So the holiday season is approaching and makeup brands are releasing new products like crazy. Boy, I’m so excited to make a holiday wishlist post! My schedule is hectic as usual since I do work in the hospital during weekends, but during my off-duty days I try to catch up on some series and YT videos.
Several brands dropped their Holiday palettes last month (and it was just September!) and now I’m confused on which of them I’m going to pick up. First to make a scene was UrbanDecay. After news of discontinuing the original Naked palette, there came a leak from Instagram with regards to the upcoming NakedCherry palette and everyone went crazy, including me. Then Too Faced released their Gingerbread Spice palette which looked oh so yummy! Come on, with a packaging like that, who could resist buying it? Colourpop also announced their collaboration with Disney and dropped their Disney Degisner Collection last September 28, few days after Anastasia Beverly Hills launched their smoky metallic palette Sultry.
Yey for monthly round-up #2! It’s been a very busy month so I was not able to follow a blogging schedule again. I do work 40 hours/week in the hospital and go to clinic 2-3x a week so I have almost one day off per week (which I spend on sleeping, malling and watching series/YouTube).
This August Sunnies released their own makeup: Sunnies Face Fluffmatte lipsticks. There was a hype over the internet and when it was released it was immediately sold out. There are mixed reviews regarding the lipsticks specifically its staying power. Read More »
Hello, guys, I’m back! My schedule is crazy, I’m mostly on duty during weekends and I have to recuperate during the weekdays, so basically I’m still adjusting to my new schedule. I do promise to keep up with my blog and follow a feasible blogging schedule.
This is actually an overdue post. I bought this lip and cheek tint last summer for my beach trip because I wanted to achieve a glowing orangey summer look. And since I love the brand The Face Shop I immediately purchased The Face Shop Watery Tint in 03 Orange Scene.Read More »
I’m not a fan of mascaras because I already accepted that my short, straight and stubborn lashes are hopeless. Even the cult fave Shu Uemura curlers can only provide a temporary fix for my lashes. Although I wasn’t blessed with long and full lashes, I rely on falsies when I needed the extra drama. But there are days that I don’t have much time to put on false eyelashes that’s the time I resort to mascara. My favourite mascara is Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara. As for drugstore mascara, I haven’t found the right one. I have tried some but it did not work for me. It only end up in my shelf only to be disposed after a few months when it have dried up.
There has been a hype over the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara last year and also early this year when Lash Paradise was finally available in the Philippine Market. I got curious so I picked up one: the Waterproof Blackest Black during a trip to the department store.
Product Description: Take your lashes to paradise! Our 1st mascara for volume & length. Soft wavy bristle brush holds maximum formula for a dramatic volumizing charge. 200+ bristles catch every lash for a full fringe effect. Smooth glide formula provides silky volume in one coat. Lashes are feathery soft to the touch. Women agreed: 91% saw intense & volumized lashes and 87% saw more beautiful lashes. +98% lengthening effect.
I’ve been M.I.A for a week because of our Diplomate Induction and Convention, so I promised myself I will post more regularly than the previous month. Now for this month, I’ll start with my first round of empties:
Biore UV AQUA Rich Watery Essence
This is actually the old packaging, which I bought last year. I use this every day before putting makeup. It’s light-weight and it doesn’t leave any white casts. Repurchase? Yes! It’s my everyday sunscreen.
