I. Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup in 150 Buff
PhP 975 each @ SM Department Store
I’ve heard tons of great things about this foundation. In fact, this product recently just won the ‘Best Drugstore Foundation Award’ in 2012 Emily Awards, and yes I do watch her videos. I do take her reviews & and recommendations seriously.
I bought it because my MeMeMe Flawless Cream Foundation is almost empty and aside from that I really want to try this, and it seems that I’m the last one who hasn’t tried this one yet, lol. Oh, and with regard to the price, and why I didn’t uy this online? I just prefer buying my foundation at a department store where I can see it’s shade and consistency rather than taking my chances online. Even though I’m going to shell out a few extra bucks, at least I’m sure that I’m pretty satisfied with the one that I got.
II. In2it Facial Highlighters in BK 02 Warm Glow
PhP 399 each @ SM Department Store
I first saw this at SM North last week but I didn’t buy it because the reason that I was there that time was to buy stuff for my giveaway (which is currently going on right now, so I invite everyone to please join!). But when I saw it at SM San Lazaro last Friday, it was just so pretty that I can’t help but get one for myself. As you guys may already know, I am obsessed with my Jazzy Collections Blusher (Highlighter) in BF-01 but I’m looking for a great alternative, and I found one! I wont give you guys much detail about this product because I’ll be doing a review about this highlighter very soon.
III. Nichido High Definition Lipstick in Pink Fetish
Approximately PhP 160+ each @ SM Department Store/Watson’s
I first saw this at a Nichido Counter at the SM Department Store. The shade was just so pretty, and since it was affordable, I didn’t hesitate to buy it. What you see is what you get in this product, the color of the tube/lipstick will pretty much reflect on your swatch and on your lips as well. However, when I applied it on my lips, it quickly settled on the fine lines of my lips, I was immediately grossed out, I quickly removed it. I might do a review about this one, but I’m quite hesitant because the very sight of my lips that day kinda shocked me (and I’m not even exaggerating).
IV. Covergirl Lipstick in 365 Enchantress
PhP 395 each @ SM Department Store/Watson’s
I originally wanted the shade ‘Divine’ but they’re no longer in stock and this was the other lip color from Covergirl that I’ve always wanted to buy. I don’t have any Covergirl lip products and how pigmented, moisturizing, or whatever they are so this is my first time to use their lip product. So far, I’m liking it. Here’s a photo of me wearing the said lipstick (with the L.A. Colors lipliner). Basically, that’s what it looks like. Kinda, lol.
V. Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips in PPK003
Approximately 700+ @ Etude House Botique
Now this is my favorite among all of the lip products that I purchased this week. I love the shade, I love the packaging, I love the scent, I love almost everything about this lip product! I will be doing a review about this product really SOON! (Gawd, I owe you an awful lot of reviews, lol!)
VI. L.A. Colors Automatic Liner in 563 Mauve & 565 Pinky
PhP 119 each @ SM Department Store/Watson’s
I don’t have much lip liners in fact I only have two (Nichido Rosette & Blaze) and ever since I’ve heard about L.A. Colors lip liners, I’ve always wanted to try them.
VII. Revlon Nail Enamel in 360 Mischievous
PhP 225 each @ SM Department Store/Watson’s
I really am into cream nail polishes these days, and I like nude, green, slate, taupe-y colors as well. I’ve already worn this and I posted a pic of it in my Instagram. (Click here to take a peek, Oh and follow me if you like )
VIII. Cutex Nail Color in Let’s Rock And Rouge
PhP 225 each @ SM Department Store/Watson’s
Saw this at Watson’s and it was just so pretty. It’s basically filled with tiny silver glitters with bits of chunky light blue glitters. What I like about Cutex Glitter Nail Polish is that they are soo pigmented, and that if you want to have a full-on glitter nail polish, you only need a minimum of 3 coats. I love their glitter selection as well. They’re pricey, yes, (especially for the size) but it’s good. It’s really good.
IX. E.L.F. Studio Small Stippling Brush & Small Tapered Brush
Approx. PhP 250 each from a friend
I know that there’s no price difference but I’ve been looking for these prices for quite some time and it also took me a while to get them (My bad -__-;). Anyway, I really love the Small stippling brush for applying cream-based blush and I would love to try using the tapered brush for contouring. I’ll let you guys know how it goes after a couple of days.
X. Celeteque Dermoscience Brightening Eye Tuck Plus Dark Circles Lightener
PhP 299 each from a friend
I’ve heard loads of great stuff about this cream but I was not able to get a hold of this at Sample Room because, uhm.. I don’ know.. I guess I got lazy. (AGAIN, My bad! >.<) And there’s nothing in stock yet, so I had no choice to buy myself one. I’ll let you know what I think of this product after a couple of weeks.
So those are the items that I recently purchased and so far, I love them. If you’re interested or if you like them, go check ’em out, they’re pretty much drugstore products and they’re not high end, so you can find them at all leading department stores nationwide.
Do you have these products? What do you think about them? Let me know by placing your comments down below!
