I recently have been going in and out of our nearby mall and i can't just window shop. I always have been an impulsive buyer but i always say at the back of my mind "Gelai, you can blog about them even if it didn't work for you." Yes, i love sharing my thoughts on a product. So these are the things i recently bought. 

  • Neutrogena Deep Clean ( Brightening in Mulberry) - I'm sorry this wasn't included on the above photo because it was in my bathroom. I forgot my Clean and Clear Deep Action Facial Wash at my dorm and when i saw this was on sale from Php 309 to Php 249 at Watsons. I think it will run until Nov 4, i'm not really sure.

  • San San Long Lash & Thick Lash Waterproof Mascara in Brown - I have a thing for brown mascaras recently after i accidentally bought Covergirl's Lash Blast in Brown. When i went to HBC, i looked into their box which had a sale tag. Then i saw these. The Thick Lash was originally at Php 115 but i got it for Php 49 while the Long Lash was originally Php 125 but got it for Php100.  Two for Php 149, what a steal! :) 

  • Nichido Minerals/ Precise Eye Pencil in Chestnut - I bought this because i wanted to try fill my brows with a pencil. It was only Php 138 and the saleslady told me that it is their best seller shade.

  • Nichido Clear Mascara - I'm so into my brows and opted to but a clear mascara that will tame those unruly eyebrow hairs and this by far was the cheapest. Bought it for Php 89.50. ,

  • My Nails Nail Polish Remover - It's still our sembreak so i change my nail color every 3 days. :)  Got this for Php 18.  

  • Caronia in Clear - I want to have an inexpensive top coat. Got this for Php 33.50

  • Jocarste Nail Polish in 24 - Love at first site when i saw this color. It's a pearl-y shade that has the right amount of shimmer. Bought this at Shawil counter for Php 39.

  • Nichido Liquid Eyeliner in Black - I just repurchased this since my first one is missing. Bought this for Php 68.

  • Fashion 21 Stick Eyeshadow/ Liner - I swatched this and felt so creamy and i am in need for a good white eyeliner and it is for Php 85.

  • Nylon Body Puff - For exfoliating and how cute is that design? Bought it for Php 44.75
  • Watsons Safe Small Scissors - Sorry i forgot to take an individual picture but it is included in the first photo. Bought it for Php 59. 

     Hey guys! This is my last post for October since i'll be going home at my province, Isabela after i publish this. Take care and God bless wherever you are. (=

REVIEW: CHARM Retractable Kabuki Brush in Gold

     I have a huge love on makeup brushes so my Beauty Cosmetics' Flat Top Brush is always at my makeup bag. But i noticed that the shape of the brush was not as it was originally so i looked online how can my problem be solved. I found brush guard but i realized the brush handle is long that prohibits me to use smaller bags. That's when i came across Beauty and Minerals' Retractable Kabuki Brush in Gold.

     It came with a pink box (but i left it at my dorm) and a guide on how to care for your brushes. After i cleaned my Kabuki Brush and dried, i used it immediately. Amazeballs, it is so soft and dense. Every bristle is designed not to make scratches. I used it with my 4u2 Lovelight BB Powder and i am so inlove this has never left my makeup bag. 

I also found this trick that you could adjust how dense your brush would be. This is by adjusting using the metal in which the actual brush is covered, other than the lid itself. This brush is so versatile that it can apply powder, liquid and cream.powder blushes. 

     Ms. Sophie is so accommodating in answering questions regarding your order. I am sure this is not my first Charm brush. :)

Clueless On What to Wear This Halloween?

     Are you attending a costume party? Halloween is just around the corner girls. If you're not yet sure what to wear or what to portray i might just have an answer. Recently i was gaga looking for an online shop that sells costumes specifically a "Red Queen type". I came across this online shop which sells a wide variety of party costumes for affordable prices. You'd be worrying that almost all party costume shops are for pre-orders only, meaning you'd have to wait for 2-3 weeks. That was my problem before, until i found PartyGal Lingerie. All of their costumes are on hand and have sizes selection. Not only does they cater to party costumes, they also sell lingerie clothes. 

Heartbreak Queen for Php 1,355
By the way, i used this costume for my creative shot for graduation and might as well wear this on an upcoming costume party. I also availed for the free shipping with minimum of 500php order valid for first time orders :) The online seller was very accommodating in answering questions. I highly recommend this shop for girls out there. 

What i looked like wearing the costume. :)

P.S. I tell you, you'll have a difficult time choosing because all are lovely. :)

Tell me what will you be for halloween. :)

The First Giveaway I Won. :)

I don't always go check my email just because i think it doesn't matter. But this night i went to check my mail and i got a message from my co-blogger Karen of telling i won her NYC Demon Topcoat Giveaway. 

I'm just worried about customs if they'll charge me anything. :( I hope not! Thank you Karen for the prize. :)


NOTD : Models Own in Coral Reef

     Yes, I'm wearing nail polish already. Just because it's our semestral break so that means i'm allowed to paint my nails. YAY! But this will only last for two weeks. It's all good though. Today i decided to paint my nails using the Models Own Nail Polish in Coral Reef which i bought last Supersale Bazaar at Makeup Hub By Naturele Collezione. I was influenced by Ms. Say Tioco Artillero to choose this color because she was wearing the exact color that time. Since i'm a sucker for anything that's coral, i bought it for Php 350. It has this usual nail polish pungent smell but it doesn't bother me at all. One coat is enough. Tell me what's your favorite nail color this sembreak? :)

The brush is wide enough for my nails.

Eyes Lips Face - Why aren't you in SM Dasma?

I know E.L.F. might be a lil expensive here in the Philippines than in US but still its affordable for a student like me. But unfortunately SM Dasma doesn't have an E.L.F. counter. Sometimes i had to go to Alabang Town Center just to buy my favorite Eyebrow Kit in Medium. And now, i'm enraged because i want to try their Hypergloss but i couldn't. I'm so busy at school so commuting is the least i want to do. 

Please E.L.F. Philippines, could you have one in SM Dasma? :))) That would mean a lot to   me and my fellow makeup enthusiasts to get hold on to your products in a nearby store. :))


FOTD : Smokey + Red

 I was just practicing on my creative shot makeup look. And this was the result. I need more practice. :) Btw, Queen of Hearts will be my creative shot for graduation. :)

I love it!! :)

Pardon moi awkward smile :)

YAY! :)

My costume :)
Shoes! :)

What do you think girls? Tell me so i could improve. :)

Pageview Reset to Zero

      By time you read this you might be as shocked as i was when i first saw that my pageview got reset to zero. I think all bloggers were affected by this because i checked some forums that bloggers were asking why did it happen. To be honest, i was relieved that it's not just me who experienced this. The first thing i thought that caused this was my recent deletion of viruses in my laptop ( Paranoid much? ).

     It irritates me to know my pageview was reset. As a blogger, it's nice to know that someone's reading your thoughts. It's rewarding to see total views from people all around the world, don't you think? 

Let me know how you felt seeing less than 10 views on your blogs. 

Day No.3 Makeup Challenge: Favorite Brand?

Makeup Challenge: Favorite Brand/s?

This photo is taken from here.
            In the States this is a drugstore product but here in the Phippines the price is like for high-ends. But i love revlon so much i always check on their counters at the malls even without buying. I usually buy my Revlon products online so it's cheaper.

      The first makeup product that i bought with my own money was Maybelline's Hypercurl Mascara. I remembered that i was so shocked with the price, i think it was 349 (i forgot!). But girls rave on their mascara. I have to say they make the best mascaras. :)

Day No.2 Makeup Challenge: How did you learn to put on makeup?

How did you learn to put on makeup?

     I learned how to put on makeup by watching tons of Youtube gurus. At first i was just entertained on how well they can transform themselves but haul videos made me want to buy makeup to. So there i started lil by lil from lips, cheeks, eyeliner then eye shadows and the rest was history. :)

Day No. 1 Makeup Challenge

I saw fellow bloggers do this 30 day Makeup Challenge. And i was so giddy to answer the questions. Here's my first out of the 30 questions i'd be answering.

1. When did you start putting on makeup?

I started putting on makeup when i was in first year college. Though i had always curled my lashes since first year high school. I thought before that eyelash curler is the best invention ever('til now i still do!). I was a girl who didn't like the feeling of putting products on my face especially my lips. I remembered my grandmother put lipstick on me when i was about to graduate in elementary. I hated the smell and taste of "old" lipsticks. She even put it on my cheeks which i dreaded when i was at that age. Until now that I started to put full makeup since my early months of being a senior nursing student. :)

What's in my make-up bag?

I love to read this tag. I get nosy on what other girls bring with them every single day. Don't you like discovering new products from other people and knowing what their holy grails are? So i decided to let others know what i take with me. I personally have a lot of products in my bag because i stay in a dorm and it's hassle-free when i go home immediately. I just grab my bag that  basically  all i need. My make-up collection stays at my dorm just because i only get to our house on weekends.  
THE make-up bag

 I'm attracted to transparent things like this bag (BUT i don't like transparent hand bags :P). When i saw this there was no second thought of buying it. What caught me into buying the bag is the side pocket which i thought is perfect for my brushes. It's so roomy that all i need could fit in. :) Being transparent means easy navigation on the products i would want to use. I bought this for less than Php200.

Birthday Make-up Haul + Review

        As you all know, I'm addicted to online shopping and since September was my birthday month, I gave in to buy these babies I've wanted for so long. I bought it at makeupHOLICS. It was so easy, and the time i went gaga for make-up the online store was having their Payday Sale. I'm a lucky bear, i know! :) You may noticed that almost all the products i bought were U.K. Brands. Yes, i love everything about the Brits and European brands.
