June 2014 Favorites

1 comment
It's been awhile since I posted my Monthly favourites.  The last time I did this was probably on Youtube and not even a blog post. LOL.  It's been so long that I actually feel strange as I type.  Weird, huh?

Anyway, let's get on to business.

I have quite a lot for the month of June mainly because I haven't done this for a long time.

June 2014 favourites.
Which one do you fancy?

What's Hot At Sample Room: Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer*

Leave a Comment
Last Friday, I saw several info graphic teasers from Sample Room and other fellow Blogger Circle members.  I got curious to what it was all about.  It said something about what's coming on Saturday (June 28) at Sample Room.

Then  Saturday came and I thought it was just the usual weekend.  When I was on my way out, my dad handed me a package from the dining table.  It's not the usual package from Xend and I wasn't really expecting any package yesterday, so I got curious.  Also, it looked more like a large parcel (document) than makeup.

I opened it in the car and these are the items that greeted me:

Five lip shimmers of Burt's Bees from Sample Room and Burt's Bees Philippines!  Thank you so much for these!  I'm really excited to use them all!

So, guys, if you want to get hold of these lip shimmers, all you have to do is sign up at Sample Room, select this product, check out, and have it delivered to your doorstep!  All you have to pay is for shipping fee!  The lip shimmer is totally free!

Better hurry cos once this sells out, they will no longer restock!  Good luck!

Follow me! Yes? No? Yey!

Rimmel London Lipstick in Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss*

Rimmel London and Kate Moss' collaboration took the world by storm.  Everyone wanted to get their hands on this lipstick. Of course, I was one of those women who wanted to get hold of this!  I got curious because it's matte and the price is affordable, too!

Shades 107 and 101

So, is this lipstick worth the hype? Let's see!

Food Escapade at Balboa

Foodie Friday

I almost didn't want to publish this post.  I lost the receipt so I forgot the ahems and the prices of the food that we ordered. Boo hoo.

But hey, I thought I'd share it anyway because Balboa is worth dining for.

Unboxing BDJ's June 2014 Box: Benefit Cosmetics Exclusive*

Something exciting landed my doorstep again last weekend.  BDJ Box for June greeted me when I came home from Benefit Cosmetics, Greenbelt 5.  I'm always excited to open a beauty subscription box because I'm eager to know what's inside.

I went crazy when I saw the cover of the box though: it's another Benefit Cosmetics exclusive box!

Snoe Beauty's What's Up Brow Eyebrow Gel Corrector

I'm such a late bloomer on brow products. I always knew that I always had a bad eyebrow shape.  Bad is even an understatement.  I even used to joke that I have the Devil's eyebrows because they are pointy all over the place.

I can't remember exactly when I became conscious about my brows - too conscious that I can't leave the house without filling in my brows.  So, the search for the best eyebrow product happened.  From pencil to powder to gel, so on and so forth.  One of the remarkable eyebrow products I've tried was Make Up For Ever's liquid eyebrow product.  I can't remember what it's called exactly.  I think I had it at some point although I can't remember if I misplaced it or if I left it with one of my girlfriends or clients.  Boo-hoo.

Last December though, I found something at Snoe Beauty's kiosk in Landmark that made me go, "Awwshnap!" literally, if I may add.

Happy Skin's Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies

It's All About Lips Monday

When Happy Skin launched in Manila last October 2013, I rushed to the nearest Plains & Prints branch to check them out.  I grabbed their SS Creme and one moisturising lippie.  It was difficult to choose one shade because I fancy most of their available shades.  I didn't want to hoard then because I wanted to test it out first.  At least, if I didn't like it, I wouldn't have to feel guilty for buying one too much.

I ended up with the shade Just Married.

Seven months later, I already have 3 jumbo lip pencils from Happy Skin.  Anyare?

Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion*

Leave a Comment

Last week, I received my Vaseline loot from Sample Room. I wasn't able to open the package immediately due to a hectic schedule.

I know today is Father's day but I was only able to open the packages I received for the past week today (except for one package).

I received Vaseline's newest lotion in the market - their Instant Fair Lotion!  Been waning to try this because I was curious on how instant it works!

The loot also came with a lavender tote which I love!

Vaseline Instant Fair Lotion comes in 3 sizes:
100mL for PhP110.00
200mL for PhP190.00
350mL for PhP299.00

It is available at all leading drugstores nationwide!  But hey, you could get his totally for free at Sample Room!  So, don't forget to head on to their website and grab one for yourself before it's gone!

Food Escapade at Tim Ho Wan

Foodie Friday

The much long awaited restaurant, Tim Ho Wan, opened about a month ago at SM Fashion Hall and everyone has been talking about it ever since.

I've tried Tim Ho Wan before in Hong Kong but I can no longer remember how the food tastes like.  Their branch here is similar to a typical Hong Kong restaurant - where counters are by the entrance.  I still don't get this concept but oh well.

Yakult Light? That's Right, It's Light!

Last week, I went to Yakult plant in Calamba. I really wasn't expecting much. I thought Sophie just invited us for a plant tour in Yakult.  I said "yes" because I love Yakult until now!

MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme in Dirty Blonde

I told myself not to be fooled too much with MAC collection.  Most of the items are Limited Edition (LE) and chances are, if you liked something too much, you have to hoard right then and there.  I also experienced not hoarding and ending up loving the product too much but can't do anything about it because it's LE.

Le sigh.

When MAC released its brow set collection last year though, I knew I had to buy and test it out - not exactly hoard as I'm really bad at doing my brows.  When I got to MAC Rustan's Makati, I was dead set on buying the brow gel creme as it's one of a kind (IMO) but chickened out and settled for the brow powder duo.  But then, I couldn't sleep at night because I was thinking of the brow gel creme, so I went back the following day to buy it.

And boy oh boy, I did not regret buying it at all.  I actually regret not hoarding.
