Flawless Acne Control Kit

Happy New Year! Using the Flawless Gift Certificates I won from Ms. Char of Yellow Yum, I availed of Flawless’ Acne Control Kit. The soap was out of stock so they replaced it with a Real Gentleman Soap when I told them my boyfriend was going to use the kit. Cute name for a soap!

Shawill Curling Mascara

Just when I thought I was on a self-imposed shopping ban, this happens to pop up at the Shawill stall at SM Megamall!

WET LASHES WITH MASCARA: (I splashed my whole face with water to test out the waterproof properties of the mascara.)

How much is Shawill Curling Mascara?

Php 188.00! There was also a smaller tube of this for about Php 144.00. Available at all leading department stores!

What I like about Shawill Curling Mascara:

  • The affordable price!
  • No strong smell.
  • Sleek black packaging. I like that it came with instructions!
  • Volumizes averagely. As you can see in my photos above, one coat of mascara gives my lashes enough volume for a natural, daytime look.
  • Waterproof enough. I like that I don’t get raccoon eyes when I splashed my face with water.

What I don’t like about Shawill Curling Mascara:

  • Clumps if not applied evenly. Definitely not for hurried makeup!
  • Doesn’t dry quickly.
  • When I tested out its waterproof qualities, there were some fall outs.
  • Smudges if rubbed hard enough.
  • Didn’t curl my lashes. Probably because it’s meant to make already curled lashes stay up longer.

What do you think of Shawill’s Curling Mascara? I think you get what you pay for. This is a good mascara for those just starting out with makeup with a budget! What’s your favorite mascara? Please let me know in your comments! :)

How was your Christmas? So much good food to eat, right? Stay safe at New Year’s!

Much Love Beauty Venturers!

Golden-Brown Smokey Eye

For my holiday look, I did a smokey eye for the first time! I used the ELF Beauty Clutch palette and Marionnaud Brushes.

ELF Eyelid Primer | Nichido Retractable Eyeliner in Brown | Clinique Volumizing Mascara | Shawill Eyelash Curler

I couldn’t photograph my whole face because of my messy hair. haha Also, as much as I wanted to do green eyes-red lips combo, I wasn’t mentally prepared for striking color on my face. Gold and brown are neutral colors so it’s a subtle festive look.

What did you think of my first smokey eye? Do you want a tutorial on this? Let me know, don’t be shy! :)

Merry Christmas Beauty Venturers!

Mini Makeup Haul, Cute Comic and The Hunger Games

Commencing self-imposed makeup shopping ban!!! haha I don’t think I’ll be purchasing makeup in a while. I hope you enjoy my mini haul Beauty Venturers.

Want to see my first haul? Click here.

IMG_7509

Marionaud Pointed Eyeshadow Brush Php 89.75

We all know that Marionnaud is amazing. I wanted to try ELF’s version of this but the  brand new ones already had fall outs. Not worth it. I’m glad I found this at SM Megamall’s Department Store!

Shawill Professional Makeup Brush Php 228.00

I am now obsessed with Shawill’s makeup tools! They have such high quality and incredibly soft brushes! I was debating on whether to get this or the Marionnaud one (Php 249.00 with a longer handle and a denser build) but this was more portable. I tried tugging on the brush randomly and there were no fall outs. This is about 3 to 4 inches long. Shawill is found at SM Department Store.

NYX Round Lipstick in Fig Php 140.00

I dropped by a NYX stall at SM Megatrade Hall 1 earlier and bought this along with another lippy! I love how moisturizing and pigmented it is. It makes you look girly! *u*

IMG_7512

NYX Round Lipstick in Tea Rose Php 140.00

This is lighter than Fig. I thought I made a mistake by buying another pink lipstick (similar to Fig in the tube) but Tea Rose is actually more natural. Can I have more NYX lipsticks please? *u* I want NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red, Audrey and Whipped Caviar!!!

Safe and Sound - Taylor Swift feat. The Civil Wars

When March 2012 arrives, I will definitely be one of the first in line to see The Hunger Games Movie! I hope you Beauty Venturers would read this amazing trilogy, too! This song is currently on repeat. *cries for Rue* *cries for Prim* D’:

I made a blog post about Jennifer Lawrence, who plays the Hunger Games heroine Katniss Everdeen! Click here to read about her and the trilogy!

Hope you have a good Friday Beauty Venturers!

San San’s Soleil Lipstick in Peach Ibiza *plus My 2012 Planner!

When I picked up my prices from the Peachypink Sisters at HBC Glorietta, I also purchased San San’s Soleil Lipstick in Peach Ibiza.

I mentioned this in my recent haul post/ video! Click here.

Bare-faced me wearing Peach Ibiza on my lips! (Sorry for the zit.)

IMG_7101IMG_7095

I was not wearing lip balm, lip liner nor lip gloss in these pictures.

What I like about Peach Ibiza:

  • It was on sale at HBC for Php50.00! What a steal!
  • Gorgeous, natural-looking lipstick for everyday.
  • Smells like marshmallows. *u*
  • Brightens the face in an instant!

What I don’t like about Peach Ibiza:

  • It doesn’t last very long.
  • Moisturizing effect not enough for my sensitive, chappy lips.

There are two other shades from San San’s Soleil Lipstick Collection namely: Nude Carribean and Pink Tropics. I’m definitely going back for the Nude Carribean soon!

On another note, I have my planner for 2012! I love how this is small enough to fit my bag but big enough for my doodles. That pink clip is actually a pen as well! How cool and quirky! I got these at Landmark Trinoma.

Namamasko po!! <3

Crazy holiday shopping at the malls lately, oh-em-gee! Just seeing the escalators at Megamall reminded me of the ones at MRT during rush hour. Nakaka-stress lang tingnan o sabayan yung mga tao. haha

Wishing you a warm Happy Holidays Beauty Venturers!
