Benefit Beauty Kits

I love how Benefit makes everything fun-sized with their cute retro packaging! I find it exciting every-single-time!

Now.. I am more interested with the concept of these Complexion Kits than the other Lip and Cheek Kits that came out. Although all would be nice kit fillers; you just need to depot the powders in a palette, concealers and the rest pop out with ease (no problem with that), you instantly get three shades of foundations, blushes, loads of primer, glosses, highlighters and tints! You know you love to stock up on those lol.

The Complexion Kits (in light, medium, dark) include: The POREfessional (primer), Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow (brightening liquid foundation), 2 shades of Boi-ing concealers, Hello Flawless! (powder) and a brush. Retails for $30.00 (approx. Php1,400 w/ tax).

Can’t wait to grab a hold on these!

Available at Benefit and Sephora

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!)

DAY 1: Aug. 7

Stay tuned for next week’s update..



I’m currently obsessed and in love with these type of lip stains/lipsticks! They stay on pretty well too and that’s what I need!

Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Tint, $24 – 0.1 oz

A follow up of the best-selling LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain and is said to deliver the same clinically proven moisturizing results even if it’s matte. It claims 6000% increase in lips’ moisture content after 28 days! It is peppermint-infused and glide on smooth for a rich matte finish that will stay all day. Sounds awesome, huh?
I want Envy, Exposed, Fiery, Hope, Lively and Lucky! In short, ALL the colors!

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, $24 – 0.086 oz

Combining the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick in a jumbo-sized crayon design, these pigment-rich sticks provide a matte, creamy finish that will not dry the lips. Enriched with emollients, vitamin E, and unique silicones, each gorgeous shade glides on and stays put.
I want Belle De Jour and Bolero!

Stila Long Wear Lip Color, $20 – 0.04 oz

A long wearing lipstick and lip gloss all in one! The tip of the pen is contoured to provide easy, precise application – hugging every curve of you lip. It boasts extended wear time while keeping lips feeling soft and smooth – never dry!
I want Exhilarating and Outrageous!
Matte stains/lipsticks can really dry your lips even if they promise you that these don’t, so make sure you dab on a bit of lip primer/balm before putting them on.. that way you won’t end up with chapped, dry, ugly lips. (That’s just bad and gross.)
