Finally moved my Glam Jam into an airless pump! πŸ™‚

I do hate how the pot thing is unhygienic and difficult to pick up just the right amount, I don’t know why Snoe made theirs like this..maybe cause it’s cute :/ any who, because I’m just too OC about it, I transferred my Glam Jam into an airless pump from Beabi πŸ™‚ it made my 120php Glam Jam now worth 180php..now ain’t that cheap for a well trusted product in a much better container? :)) I also transferred the sticker onto the bottle to avoid confusion of what product is inside πŸ˜‰

There I just wanted to share cause I feel so friction clever for this..haha!! πŸ™‚ I kid πŸ˜‰

First of Tony Moly

12/09/2012 § 2 Comments

So, Tony Moly finally opened in Alabang and I just couldn’t wait to get myself to testing πŸ˜‰

I was a teeny bit disappointed with the color selection but the skin care and BB cream ranges are so vast, it’s gonna take you years to try everything! :))

As I did no prior research on the brand, I just went with what the SA sold most and another prospect for a long lasting blush πŸ™‚ both products while keeping in mind my Beauty level 0 goal in medschool make up :))

I doth know if they gave me the membership card for free because of the price of my purchase or because they’ve just opened but I did not take the php1000 promo to get a huge tube of cleanser. It really sounds great cause it’s a HUGE tube for free but I didn’t find something more to try and pay until the required price..there will be next time πŸ˜‰ I also got a free fan which I dunno when or how I’ll ever use.

Dear Me Cotton BB Cream

First Impression: This baby is the cheapest one among the BB cream range, maybe that’s why it’s the best seller. I swatched it on my hand comparing to the “glowing skin” BB creams and decided that I like how it’s sheer and matte so there no shine but at the same time doesn’t look too made up. It smells of baby powder and feels smooth on my skin. Did not settle into fine lines and dries rather quickly. I like it. I’m excited to wear it to school everyday πŸ™‚ only catch is that this is available in one shade only.

Mineral Skin Fit Snow Blusher

First Impression: This baby reminded me very much of The Body Shop Creme Blush in tiny tubes which cost 3 times more than Tony Moly. I loved that blush but I had to save up for it cause it runs out so fast on me and it’s not easy to spend so much money. Also, the lady said that this is very long lasting so I had to really give it a try. It’s a smooth cream that feels powdery upon blending. I think I’m gonna need very little amounts of this when in use because these are super pigmented. I hope you can see thesheer pink part on my skin, cause it’s really a nice subtle color. This (Rose pink) was the only one available when I purchased, I didn’t know there were two other shades but I wouldve picked this one most likely.

All in all, I’m super happy with my purchase πŸ™‚ What Tony Moly products have you tried?

Ps. The blush swatch was done over the blended and set BB cream so that's how it looks like after blending, matte and sheer πŸ™‚

ELF Eyebrow kit + ELF Brightening Eyeliner in Coffee

12/01/2012 § Leave a comment

Twin Review:Β ELF Eyebrow kit + ELF Brightening Eyeliner in Coffee

Eyebrow Kit
Brow Gel + Powder + Dual end mini brush

Ive been looking for a really helpful brow baby special nights that call for really defined brows. My brow pencil is easy and great to use but its not as defined as when I see gel and powder used on other people. ELF is a great brand to try cause its affordable and easily available.

Likes

  • affordable
  • easy to use
  • complete set perfect for travel
  • available in four colors perfect for brunettes
  • tiny mirror just the right size to check if your brows are even

Dislikes

  • tiny brush needs some getting used toΒ 
  • no blonde color for blonde girls

Been using this so much I’m starting to miss my old pencil :))

ELF Eye Brightening pencil

This baby I’m having second thoughts with. I love how the pencil came with a sharpener but the ashy grey brown color is not the best for my miss bright eyes look. I dont know why this was labeled Brightener because no matter how thick or thin i use this, I always get the brown grey smokey eye effect. It also doesnt cling to my waterline. Ill probably use this for the “I partied too hard last night” sultry look however, i dont see myself wanting to do the tired eyes look any time soon πŸ™‚

Likes

  • affordable
  • lasts some good hours albeit smudged
  • comes with sharpener
  • available in various colors

Dislikes

  • smudges bad
  • does not brighten my eyes at all
  • the coffee color looks too grey brown and ends up looking like i have tired eyes

I havent been using this on a daily basis. I just tightline with this very thinly to make my eyes look a little bit bigger.

With ELF its really a hit or miss thing and these two are perfect examples πŸ™‚

Bubble Hair color in Mocha Pink

11/30/2012 § Leave a comment

Review: Bubble Hair coloring in 07 Mocha Pink by Etude House

ImageA year wiser, a shade lighter :)) Ive always wanted a light brown ashy kind of hair but im always too scared or busy or broke..haha! So I’ve been loving Bubble Hair color from EH..its so affordable and fool proof πŸ™‚ This is my second time to use this..the first was around 4 months ago πŸ™‚

Since Im still so disoriented to blog, Ill just photobomb you :))

The box contains the Fluid #2 in a pump bottle, fluid#1 in a plastic sachet, hair conditioner in the purple sachet and some protective plastic to avoid stains.

The only English insructions. the additional info packet inside does not have any english details.

my hair before the treatment, straight from the bun :))

 

I cant remember if the first one i used was amber yellow like this or a bit more purple..I had to recheck my box to make sure I got the right shade.

The plastic things came with the pack and I love how it helped with avoiding stains everywhere. I later on wrapped my bubbled hair with the cape thing. Of course, after a few minutes, the color dripped to my shirt. I dont know why i forgot to take my shirt off or wear a darker one..however, no stains were left on my shirt after laundry..ahmazin!

 

Got a few red marks from the dye that touched my skin. It was a teeny bit itchy but the redness and itching was gone as soon as my hair was dry πŸ™‚

 

My hair when dry. I feel like during the following days, my hair color got even lighter and I really like it πŸ™‚

Likes

  • Super easy to use
  • affordable and easily available
  • no dandruff and uncomfortable itching
  • no stains on my forehead, ears, nape and shirt
  • pretty color that doesnt look so fake
  • the treatment conditioner that comes with, works like magic!

Dislike

  • Hoping theyd come up with more colors however, comparing my hair to friend who used mocha pink, her color looks much lighter than mine. and with my other friends who used Wine red, one got black with red highlights during sunlight and the other got a really nice chestnut color..odd so dont expect your hair to turn out exactly how the color on the box looks :)) Anywho, every one looks pretty and no hair damage from using this baby πŸ™‚

❀ Jessica

PS. Finally had time to blog πŸ™‚
