December Haul

Leopard wideleg, Pink Manila | White polo with metal tipped collar, ROMWE | NOVI shoe care products, Call It Spring | MAC Penulitimate eye liner | Givenchy Pandora (Medium) in Aubergine, ADORA | Miller sandals, Tory Burch
Originally, I wanted the Celine Nano Luggage bag but then I saw this girl went in at Adora carrying that purse in yellow and it was so freakin’ tiny (cute though) then Mum said I should get the Givenchy Pandora instead since I carry tons in my bag (but it would be awesome to have a Celine Nano as well bahaha). So ye, I was choosing over the Aubergine Mini, Bright Orange (kinda fluo) Small and an Aubergine Medium.. ended up with the medium one hihi. To make the long (non-sense) story short.. I got more than what I expected for Christmas! Thanks so much, Mum! (: Ye, she was in the mood last night.. even my sisters went cray cray!
How’s your December so far? Mine sure ain’t Decemblur!

Bold Just Got Bolder

I can’t stop raving about my new phone on Twitter so here it is, the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900!

Side by side with my old Bold 9000 (since 2008). You can see how damaged it is on the outside hihi. It was able to withstand dust, water and a 4-ft drop.. or more cos it sometimes flies in the air and bust open to the ground and parts are all over the place (ps: never went to a repair shop). Surprisingly it is still alive and working fine. That’s why I love it so much and waited for BlackBerry to come out with something awesome like it.. AND THEY DID!

Best of both worlds! Touch and Type!
Bold 9900(9930) finally offers some cutting-edge tech, and in an attractive package to boot but still keeping its classic luxurious design. Its 1.2GHz processor, high-spec touchscreen, brand new OS7 and HD video camera are all specs we never really expected a BlackBerry to have. Not to mention that it has the best keyboard ever! I love that they fused everything in the orignal Bold 9000 body but sleeker. Yes, there are not enough apps available but it is more focused on productivity and communication than wasting time. It’s the best BlackBerry I’ve ever seen and used. Period. Exclamation Point!
More after this jump.

Catwalk Cosmetics

Almost forgot I had this hehe :P Got this like last week I think (I forgot) and I’m super excited to play with it! Catwalk Cosmetics is owned by fashion and beauty blogger, Marj Sia. I don’t really need another palette like this since I have a couple from Coastal Scents, but ye I gave in anyways.
The palette has 15 eyeshadows that you can use for day & night looks and 3 blushes:
Smokey (Pearl White, Disco Silver, Black Noir)
Neutral (Copper, Juicy Orange, Hello Yellow, Cocoa Brown)
Cool (Lime Green, Green Tea, Powder Blue, Royal Blue, Teal)
Warm (Geisha Red, Lollipop Pink, Purple Lotus)
3 Blush Shades: Salmon, Tangerine, Rose
I got the Runway Palette with a special promo price of P600 (+50 shipping) but it’s fairly cheap for P1,100 too and you get huge pans! They’re pretty pigmented as well! Few colors are a bit chalky tho and you will get fall outs but that’s fine; you can deal with it later. I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer for the swatches below so the color would really pop out and did like 2-3 swipes, pretty decent I’d say.
Makeup tip: Always test eyeshadows before buying them. The color and pigment should both be strong – even on neutral colors. Without these two components you will forever be trying to build up color and intensity and that means using up your eyeshadow way too fast – and no one wants that!

For Orders, call or text Marj Sia (+63917-8929289).

Lash Experiment: Smashbox Lash Revival (Day1)

Still not losing hope of growing my long lashes back; I decided to give this little one a try. I’ve read and watched reviews. Every person got different results and I wouldn’t know if it would work the same on me so let’s wait and see.
All this trouble cos of a bad lash extension experience.. hayy.. never again!

Treatment applicator

Conditioner applicator

What it is: A revolutionary 2-in-1 treatment and conditioning duo that creates noticeably longer, lusher lashes in as little as 8 weeks.
What it does: This treatment contains SymPeptide, a complex proven to stimulate lashes without irritation while anchoring and enhancing existing lashes. Independent consumer studies show that 90% of subjects notice an overall improvement in the appearance of lash length, fullness, and thickness in just 8 weeks.
Formulated without: Parabeans
How to use it: Lash Revival is best used as an overnight treatment, and should not be applied more than once every 24 hours. Ensure that lashline is completely clean and dry. Apply the treatment like eye liner along the lashline sparingly. Once the treatment is dry, generously brush the conditioner through lashes.
NOTE: Other eye products including eye creams, gels, etc. should be applied only after the treatment and conditioner are completely dry.
This clever little multi-tasker works great on over-tweezed or sparse brows too! (Will try it after this tube. For now, let’s concentrate on my lashes first!)

Instantly roll away dark circles!

If y’all read my “skincare” post, you know that I use the regular Garnier Light Brightening Eye roll-on to hydrate my eye area. I’ve seen the Light BB Eye roll-on on YouTube a lot and been waiting for it to arrive here in Manila and now it did! So I got myself a tube to test out.
Garnier Light BB Eye roll-on retails for P229.00 but for some reason I got it for only P199.00, must be a new product promo thing hihi, lucky me! Now, we all know that lack of sleep and daily fatigue make eyes look tired. Microcirculation slows and the delicate skin around the eyes becomes thinner and more translucent which then results to dark circles. I don’t have dark circles or at least not much of a problem in that department but still I want to look awake and I must say I really like this product cos it instantly brightens my eye area!
What I love:
  • It instantly corrects the appearance of dark circles
  • It brightens then skin around the eyes
  • It is very easy to use and blend
  • Can be used to substitute your expensive concealer
  • Dries fast (natural finish)
  • Lessens eye puffiness
  • That cooling effect it gives is soothing
  • And of course, it’s affordable!
What I don’t love:
  • What’s not to love?!
  • Oh don’t substitute this for your heavy coverage concealer if you have serious dark circles.
Overall, I love this product! Specially on those lazy days that I don’t want to put tons of product on my face. I think you should give it a try! With that.. I’ll leave you with Garnier’s favorite tag line “take care”! (:
