Haul: Etude House The Great Princess Sale!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Hahahaha Who doesn't love S-A-L-E? This is just a quick post so here's what I got this afternoon.

Eyelash curler
I still have my first but I think it's time to change it.

Pearl Aura Brightening Essence Lotion
This is for the mother. She's running out of her recent moisturizer.

Dear Girls Be Clear Moisturizer
I originally wanted to get the Mom and Kid sunblock because I need to have my daily sun screen game on. Not just from my Majolica Majorca powder which only has SPF 15(?). But I saw this product so I got it instead. It's a moisturizer with SPF 30/PA++ and it's cheaper compared to the mom and kid sunblock.

Hyaluronic Acid face mask
Because it's the -ber season. My skin gets really dry, super dry. -__-

Lip and Eye Remover
Again, who wants their lips and eyes removed? Hahaha

Drawing Eyebrow (#1)
This is a hit in my blog. You people should get yours now! This is my nth time repurchasing it. I was thinking of getting the gray one but too scared on how it'll look on me.

I got the wonder pore for free, by the way.

Awesome sale indeed! It's 20% off in every single item! What are you waiting for?

Review + Photos + Swatch: NYX butter gloss Cherry pie, Raspberry tart, Tiramisu

NYX butter gloss: Cherry Pie, Raspberry Tart, Tiramisu
All I wanna do is find my way back into love... My love for lip glosses came back when I tried these babies! Admit it, high school is mostly our lip gloss phase or if you started early, then elementary. Agree?

Chit-chat. You can totally skip this ►► I wanted to step out of my nudes and pink and explore more on the reds and plums. I thought lip glosses will help me with it since they're not that "in your face" when it comes to darker shades as compared to a lipstick. Well, that's what I thought with these until I tried them myself. There are tons of brands who are offering lip glosses that are really pigmented, may it be drugstore or high end. People just have to explore and find what's best suited for them.◄◄Chit-chat. You can totally skip this 

These NYX butter glosses comes in a lot of shades that I want to have them all! I'm eyeing on you, peaches and cream, peach cobbles, sugar cookie and cupcake...ok all of them. -__- I am actually waiting for my devil's food cake to arrive in a few weeks now. *wink*

Update? Update.

To start, I am kind of moving on with my MAC lipstick addiction and now transitioning to NYX. At least it's a lot cheaper but it's still an addiction. I am declaring that 2014 is my lipstick addiction phase.

What? Where have I been? Well, I'm still where I am but with an additional touch of MED SCHOOL. It just consumed all of my time and energy, but it really paid off during the 1st quarter. My 2nd quarter was really a roller coaster with a carousel and oh gawd put all the rides in the world in this sentence. In short, I was and am still busy with Med school but it's sem break now hence the update!

My free time since my last post is now dedicated to myself without anything bothering my mind. Oh wth, sleep is what I meant. Since school started, I only get to have 4hrs of sleep most of the time. And it's killing my skin, not just my skin, but my whole body. I didn't know I have to go through being sick just to help the sick. But I know it will all be worth the sleepless nights and stress.

Oh don't worry, I've arranged things to be posted here. What takes most of my time in blogging is taking pictures of the products. It takes a lot of time than writing something about it. I am not complaining at all. This is something I like and it never bothers me. I also like Med school, a lot, but I get frustrated easily so I get stressed a lot more.

How's life been to you? Feel free to tell me anything in the comments section. Update me as wekk

Makeup of the night (Acquaintance Party)

Woah! It's been 10924728957 years since my last post. Sorry for being MIA. Med school is asdklfjasldjf. I am happy yet stressed due to all the books that I have to read and exams are happening almost everyday! Luckily, we got to breathe during our acquaintance party. Horahh!

MAC Angel Review, Pictures, Lip Swatch

Time off from the bright colors from my previous post, here's one for an all year round look! Every time I go to MAC's counter, I am always drawn to colors that are bright, or dark, nothing for everyday wear. I think the bright ones, which are very plenty, covers up the nude ones. With this color I have, the reason is because of...Kim K. Nothing more! Hahahaha What a capital A falling for that, I know! But someone has got to have this shade because...Kim K! I adored MAC bombshell but passed because I am blinded by the reviews and hype of this MAC's Angel.

MAC Morange Review, Pictures and Lip Swatch

 Need I say more? More-orange please!
This is my second orange lipstick to date. My first one is from Etude House which I haven't talked about it here on the blog. What a bummer! Bought it during my last year in College, when I was super busy! Good thing it was all over! But I will be saying hi to school again weeks later from this post! (I love schooling! hahaha)

MAC Impassioned Review, Pictures, and Lip Swatch

The anxiety level of buying makeup online is just crazy! I got this from @cebumakeuponline (instagram) and have no one to ask about if she's a seller of authentic makeup. But scrolling down to her feed, I've seen "testimonies" from buyers and they are pretty reliable. Is reliable the word that I'm looking for? Hahahaha Anyhoo, she doesn't over stock so this means there's a slight chance that she's selling fake ones. The rest of the story? Down below!

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

The first thing that made me purchase this is because of the packaging. Second, because RIHANNA. Who doesn't love her voice? And because sometimes, dressing down doesn't mean you don't have to have a red lippie on. It makes everything look polished!

Whatever Wednesday: Facial Hair Remover (No wax!)

I'd be honest. I have these tiny hairs on my upper lip area and every single time I take a picture for a lip swatch, they really show up! Hence, my full face picture instead of a close-up. (Now you know the reason) I've seen Asian bloggers and vloggers use this "thing" so I gave in.

Review: Ever Bilena Lip Pencil in Cappucino, Burgundy, and Orange (Lip swatches)

Heads up! This is a super ultra mega backlog! -__- This is so last two months. -__- Didn't get to swatch it on the lips not until today. Shocks! Ohwellllll.

Review: TheFaceShop E'thym Collagen Water Moisture Lotion

This is my go to lotion whenever the Philippines hits the *~cold~* season, -ber months. My skin dries up so bad it flakes super disgusting. Been using this for the whole -ber months of 2012 and 2013.

Review: MAC lipstick in Chatterbox | Hunt for the perfect pink lipstick

The search is on for the perfect pink lips! Audition starts at...wait, Hahahaha College days, I thought pink lips will wash me out and it's a bit for me. For four years, I've been sporting nude lips! I've been meaning to try pink lipsticks since I saw a blog post from all of the bloggers and videos of Vloggers featuring their COLLECTION of pink lipsticks! It proved me wrong about my thoughts of the pink lipsticks are only for the fair skin.

Makeup Related Birthday Gift!

I turned 2NE1 (twenty-one) yesterday! The mother got me something and guess what? (unless, you scrolled down so yeah, you knew it) T-W-O MAC lipsticks! 'cause I am a grown woman like that. Hahaha no. But I've come to a legal age! Who wants to go with me to a strip club? (I know Barney of HIMYM wants to)
Check me up next week or maybe this week for reviews of these lovelies!

Feature: Dolly Wink False Lashes

The cycle goes on with Elle obsessing over false lashes. How can you not be addicted with false lashes if you don't have (visible from afar) one? I mean, mascaras are great but it can never get the false lashes effect that I want. I really don't care if it looks really unnatural to some people but whatever.

Repost: Love yourself!

I just have to share this video to all of you! There are people out there struggling about what society thinks about them, but all of it will just boil down to who you really are. You shouldn't be someone else for someone to like you. The right people will come to you if you'll just be true to yourself.

Review: TheFaceShop Pore Minimizer Controlling Clay Mask

The summer wave is finally hitting the island and ohboy my pores are showing up like cray cray! Pore minimizing products are sure helpful for this season. I am scared to try out a whole new line because my skin is sensitive so I opt for a clay mask since I can apply this every once or twice a week. How can I not have a sensitive skin? It's really awesome to try every skin care out there in the market and not get allergies and zits. I am totally envious of people who has, if not perfect, at least not sensitive to almost everything.

Too early for throwback Thursday, too late for flashback Friday

I've got nothing for this Saturday since my files are all in my laptop and I am stuck with another computer here at home because of reasons. I decided to visit my first ever post then to the newer ones; and my oh my I was laughing at the same time embarrassed! I mean, the quality of my photos back then and my ultimate mistake until now, no proof reading and whatsoever that my spellings and grammar are meh. Hahahaha And my dear, I gained a lot of weight! Check out my first makeup post here "click me" and "me"

Feature: Marionnaud N°32 Blush Brush

Look at what I saw in my stash! I purchased this a long time ago and used it once then back to its packaging then forgotten; Forgotten because I'm not a fan of applying blush on the cheeks. Maybe because I have prominent cheeks and allergies when commuting. Bronzers? I don't know, I haven't found my love for it yet.
I'm sure some of you have seen these brushes at Watsons. It's everywhere! I've also seen Miss Cory Potts' videos on Youtube featuring Marionnaud brushes and other Youtube Gurus based in the Philippines.

Review: Etude House Collagen Moistfull Emulsion

Trying to be active again. You thought I stopped blogging? Mehehe Maintaining a blog is hard! Unless, all I have to do is post pictures and not share my thoughts about a product. Then it wouldn't be a review anymore. How can people maintain their channel on Youtube? Amazing are their powers to manage time!

I have had enough of face lotions and decided to try emulsions. Maybe later, serums. But for now, I'll be sharing my thoughts about my first time to try an emulsion. I've read blogs and watched videos comparing face lotions, emulsions, and serums. Maybe I should jump into the bandwagon and try some for myself. It benefits my skin so why not?

Review: Revlon Colorstay and Valentine's Day Makeup?

This is embarrassing but this is my first time to own a liquid foundation. I am already fine with my Majolica Majorca powder foundation but one event of my life-- oath taking for passing the board examination, calls for a liquid foundation, because I didn't hire a professional makeup artist that time because...I was in Manila and didn't know who to contact. I own a cream foundation from Ever Bilena because school activities during college. I can't compare a liquid to a cream foundation sooooo you get my point. Hahaha I am blabbering.

Let us move one to the swatch and I'll give you my thoughts about it after everything.
