Hello lovelies! I’m so excited to share my beauty and health purchases for the past weeks.
It’s time of the year wherein I revamp my professional makeup kit. I bought most of them online via Shopee, the leading mobile-first marketplace platform in Southeast Asia. I’m so addicted to Shopee because you could find things that are cost cheaper than stores. Which is absolutely amazing! Also, I’m a fan of their cash-on-delivery option. Talk about convenience! A piece of advice though, always look for the seller’s reviews before you buy. This is to ensure you are dealing with a legit seller.
I’ve seen Kathleen Lights and Tati raving about the Becca First Light Priming Filter and Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. Kathleen and Tati are two of my favorite beauty Youtubers because they are very transparent when it comes to makeup reviews. However, the Butter Bronzer (Php700) I picked was too light for my liking so will probably purchase the darker shade as well in the future. I will make a separate review of these two soon. Bought the Butter Bronzer from @myfaveshop, check her out. She’s so nice! Meanwhile, I got the primer for Php1500 from a co-member in a makeup related Facebook group.
Finally got myself the whole brow palette from Freedom.
I’ve been using their Duo Brow Powder in Ebony (which I already hit pan) and I’m loving it so much. It’s very easy to use and it looks so natural when applied. Sadly, the mirror in the palette was damaged when it arrived. I informed the seller (@shayneeeeeee) the sad news and she apologized. I chose not to return since it was coming all the way from Cebu. Hassle pa. 🙁
Anyway, here’s my in-depth review of Freedom Makeup London PRO HD Brow Palette in Medium Dark [Swatches + Review].
My collection of makeup brushes are from different brands such as Morphe, Sigma, MAC, Zoeva and many more. I love what I am currently using but it is nice to have a new brush set as a backup, most especially when you are doing makeup in a big group. Jessup is a Hongkong brand and bristles are made of natural synthetic hair. This brush set is called T218 8pcs White/Rose G Old Kit. This is perfect for beginners since it has all the brushes you need to create a full makeup look. I already used the concealer brush (which is pretty obvious lols) and I love how soft and densely packed it is. I highly recommend this set since it is budget-friendly, bought for Php600 (SALE price). Original price is Php800+. You can check out @lavparedes for more Jessup brush sets!
Mink Eyelashes (or 3D Eyelashes) are so IN nowadays.
If you want your eyes popped, even MORE, you should definitely try these babies. Got these from @fahionleader.ph, 1 set for Php157 and singles for Php82.
Here is a look I made using these mink lashes.
One of my New Year’s resolutions is to have a healthier lifestyle and lose some weight. So when Hubby and I went to UP Town Mall, I made sure to visit Healthy Options and bought some stuff.
As far as I know, Healthy Options is the only store who carries Thayers Witch Hazel Toner in the Philippines. Correct me if I’m wrong ha. Witch hazel is a plant that is used to make a medicine. Witch hazel leaf extract, bark extract, and witch hazel water are used as astringents to tighten the skin. Many beauty bloggers swear by this toner as a game changer in their skincare routine. I have a sensitive acne-prone skin and I hope this will help to reduce my pores and redness on my face. I bought Original variant (355mL) for Php650 .
Decided to buy Ester-C 1000mg Vitamin C (Php445 for 30 tablets) to boost my immune system.
Recently, I’ve been taking a lot of medicines because of my eczema thus, I need something to detox or flush out the toxins out of my system. This box retails for Php329 for 16 tea bags.
Lastly, the so-called “Superfood”.
I learned that Chia Seeds has so many proven health benefits including increases energy and stamina, weight loss, normalize blood sugar so on and so forth. I actually enjoyed it the first time as an add-on to my Lemonade. There so many recipes you can do with chia seeds and I can’t wait to try them! Navitas Organics sells for Php445 for 113g.
That’s it for now lovelies. Hope you enjoy my haul and see you in the next post! 🙂
