Don’t Leave Me Blushing ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜

I was beyond excited when I finally got my Tarte blushes! I bought it thru my trusted online seller mycalishopper (instagram) by simply giving the url to her.

I had always wanted to try Tarte blushes because they are always part of “The Best” or “The Must-Haves” on most of the beauty checklists that I have read online. So the only way to satisfy my curiosity is to buy an Amazonian clay blush. Not just one, but a set of 3 holiday exclusive blushes.

This set of blushes are smaller than the regular-sized Amazonian Clay blushes. But I like the colors and they are really pigmented! I also love the fact that they included a brush! Love love love โค๏ธ

I use honored for contouring, treasured if I’m wearing a bright or dark lipstick but if I’m wearing something coral or nude on my lips, I prefer using the imagined blush.

Would love to try other Tarte blushes soon!

First Glamourbox: unboxing

I just received my first Glamourbox 5 days ago and I have mixed emotions on this. First, it’s a bit more expensive than the BDJ box; Glamourbox is Php595 while BDJ box is Php580. I know that it’s a mere Php15 difference but I was perplexed when I was charged an additional 10-15 pesos on my debit card like I just made an international charge. Well, I didn’t dispute it and just moved on.

So let’s cut the intro and see for yourself if it’s worth Php595 (600-ish for me).

20131209-044737.jpg
The box of Glamourbox is a bit bigger than the BDJ box (must be the Php15 difference, lol)

20131209-045053.jpg
For December, Glamourbox’s theme is “Secret Santa”… I think I was nice the entire year… Really, I am.

20131209-045234.jpg
On the other side of the card is the list of box’s contents

20131209-045334.jpg
Do not be deceived though; read it carefully. The prices are for the full-sized version of the products included on the box. The only full-sized product on the box is the Avon perfume and honestly, I’m quite surprised of its price… a whopping Php1500. Really???

20131209-045713.jpg
I’m not a fan of Avon perfumes but the Only Imagine smells really nice that I might even try using it. I also like the pink and purple packaging and the fluffy purple tutu that I thought was a scoungie.

I also find the necklace from Fabulosa very cute and I think it will look nice to wear on a Christmas party/dinner. It’s a good conversation starter due to its gift-shaped pendant. This is a plus on Glamourbox because I haven’t gotten any kind of jewelry yet from my BDJ box.

I’m a fan of liquid bath soaps so I’m happy to get The Cream Factory’s Bath Cream (221ml). But I almost gagged when I first used it due to its overwhelming scent.

20131209-051138.jpg

I’m quite satisfied too with the Holika Holika Pure Mellow Multi Puff; a cute purple dupe of the Beauty Blender’s famous sponge:

I also can’t wait to try these 2 samples from Paula’s Choice:

20131209-051748.jpg

I have been using BB cream for a year now instead of the usual L’oreal True Match Foundation that I used before. I would love to try this Holika Holika’s CC cream (I-dont-understand-Korean ml) for a change:

And lastly, the only product that I will definitely not use (and that’s because I don’t cook, lol)… Giving it to my mom at this very moment… Zen Zest Kitchen Fragrance in Choco Cappucino (50ml)

I would have loved love it if there is a make-up included on the box. Fine, it has the make-up sponge but a lippie inside the box won’t hurt, right?

November Beauty Haul

This blog has been in semi-hiatus for the month of November because I’ve been busy at work; “overtime” seemed like a “regular time” for me. Whew! But that didn’t stop me from buying beauty products! No, no, no! It may not be as many as I wanted to but I’m still happy with my purchases. Thank God for a trusted online seller (…and going to the mall when almost everyone was out of town during the All Souls Day, woohoo), shopping had been easy breezy.

So here was my beauty haul for last month:

โค๏ธ Eye Need A Miracle Concealer (Happy Skin)
Happy Skin is a local brand that has just been recently launched in the market but is already making waves due to their รผber cute packaging, their products’ catchy names and their celebrity owners and endorsers. So when I saw this in instagram, it has piqued my kikay curiousity and decided to buy myself an undereye concealer (mine has been running out anyway… There’s the excuse!๐Ÿ˜›).

20131204-044935.jpg
Bought this inside Plains And Prints at Megamall at around 600 pesos. Not bad.

20131204-050629.jpg
I know I need a miracle for my panda-bear-undereye situation so I was so excited to finally buy this concealer. They only have 1 shade available because…

20131204-050928.jpg
It doesn’t have a scent, it blends well and a little dollop can go a long way.

โค๏ธ Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzing Cream

20131209-061001.jpg

Very affordable! I bought this at Watson’s Megamall as I practice the art of highlighting and contouring.

โค๏ธ Nyx Stick Blush in Tea Rose for Php300

โค๏ธ Nyx Round Lipstick in Blush for Php280

It’s a “barbie pink” kind of lipstick

20131209-063412.jpg

First Tony Moly Haul

Yes, this is my first… and I’m really and have always been a “late bloomer”. I hope that I chose the right set of products for my “first”. If not, feel free to suggest any products from Tony Moly that I should try.

And here are their prices…

20131201-234551.jpg
I was supposed to buy a facial mask from them but totally forgot it. Do you know any good masks from Tony Moly? I also checked the lip scrub but it seems like a regular body scrub, err, so I decided not to buy it.

I would like to try more products from them so I will definitely appreciate any recommendations ๐Ÿ˜˜
