SWATCHFEST: LOOK Beauty Loud Lips

Everyone who knows me can attest that Im a real sucker for blushes.
I get really hyper whenever I see new ones in the market and there used to be times that Id end up hoarding all the shades (even the ones that doesnt look nice on me. LOL!).
Having so much makeup in my stash - even forgot about owning some of them, I felt really guilty thats why I had to take a break from online shopping and blogging for about a year, of course I also had to avoid GT (Female Network's GirlTalk forum) since I easily get tempted to try out new stuff other makeup junkies are raving about (inggitera lang? LOL)
Was able to purchase a few makeup items during my "break" but I made sure they were makeup kit staples like foundies and lipsticks (still hoarded some LOL). Since I started wearing makeup,  Ive always been a sucker for glosses -- from clear, tinted to sparkly ones and its just recently when I started to fall in love with lipsticks. 

To this date, I think I own more lippies than blushes and today Im going to review and show you guys swatches of LOOK Beauty's Loud Lips Lippies.

SWATCHFEST: LOOK Beauty Double Hit Lip


Hooray for my second blog entry for this year, LOL! 

Im super giddy to share my review for LOOK Beauty's Double Hit Lip since yesterday but my internet connection was really sucky so I decided to take a bit more time testing out the products before I give my final verdict. Just a short background for those who havent heard about LOOK Beauty Cosmetics yet -- just like TheBodyShop, LOOK Beauty is a drugstore brand in the UK and the quality is at par with some high-end brands Ive tried. 

Today Im going to review Double Hit Lip. It says on the website that its "universally flattering and as tan enhancing as a white dress, these colour pop shades look amazing, whether gloriously glossy or not! All the trends covered - matte, glossy or combine the two."

Sounds Good, right?

Hang on and read more after the Jump!

Beauty Bargain: Sally Hansen Get In Shape Brow Shapers

I'm back! LOL!

Whats up everyone? :) 

Was MIA for ages and I wanna be honest, I just wanted to cool down from something that happened to me online. One thing is for sure though, I dont wanna abandon this blog forever and I surely missed posting my random babbles about beauty stuff and everything under the sun. 

For a while, I also "forgot" about online shopping (o yea! nagbago na ko LOL) but just recently, my (the coolest and ever so loving) Mom asked me if I know anyone selling stuff she can gift to our staff for Xmas, I showed her Meg's eBay account- jnlink777, and because of this, I felt the urge to browse Meg's stuff also and came across some really nice stuff that are (as always) cheap and of good quality. First to review is the Sally Hansen Get In Shape Brow Shaper Set.

Guess Whos Back ^_^

Its been a year and 2 months since I published my last blog entry and I surely missed doing this. 

What I missed most though are the friends I gained thru GT and thru Blogging. Been really busy taking care of our "baby" -- Yobs (the boyf) and I started our own business together that I dint have time to write my thoughts on stuff and share them here. Sad. 

But now I guess Ill be back for good and I hope you guys missed me somehow. LOL!

Hows everyone here na? :) 


XOXO,

What Got Me Hooked..

Histories behind these tiny things got me interested and got me hooked in collecting them, back in May 2011, I started with this : 


Barely had around 15 charms in my loot, I bought these not to keep them for a collection but to give them away as pasalubongs from my HongKong trip. They got lost in the storage though so I wasnt able to give them away to my friends. November 2011, I started browsing Facebook and came across selling pages for toys from Japan. And In barely a month, I was able to build my stash up to this : 


Not much as I only had around 40 at this time, and this shot was taken mid-December. 
To date, I was able to build my collection up to 421 to be exact. 
and this is how 421 Hello Kitty Charms look like : 


I remove the strings so theyd be less bulky to store. Theres still around 30-40 charms thats not included in the last photo though. Super lucky to have met friends on facebook who helped me get my hands on some Limited Edition ones. Not that Im trying to justify but these tiny things got my attention drawn away from buying makeup -- which I already have too much of and I guess it wouldnt be right if I stock up on more since Im rarely wear makeup lately. 

A lot of people would usually collect plushies or the stuffed ones but I cant have those since Im sensitive to dust. So having these tiny babies is the best option, aside from theyre too adorbs to look at, they dont eat up much space in the storage too, and they dont gather dust as long as the container's covered. I love that these charms are more detailed too than the plush toys since they hold their shape better. 

People are asking me, when would I stop collecting them? I prolly wouldnt. I plan to buy the books that tell the stories behind the designs of the charms and I plan to make trips to Japan just to help me complete the charms from the book. For the sake of those who doesnt have an idea, these charms are designed as symbols of the prefectures of Japan. Each popular thing on each destination gets represented by one charm design, and I plan to have them all. Kakaririn ko talaga to. LOL! 

Anyone here who collects charms too? I can share with you where I buy these stuff. Way cheaper than buying them from Gift Gate. *winks*

Friday na ulit bukas! Whats your plan for the weekend? 


Xoxo,

FiNALLY! NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Swatches

Sorry ladies, wasnt able to update as promised. 
After being super busy the past few weeks, I got sick and was bedridden. LOL! But heck, better late than never, right? :) 

Back in December. Sol of Digital Traincase asked me to try Xtreme Lip Creams, theyre from NYX and they are fab. I love the ease of application, the opacity/coverage of the colors and the fresh colors that are both wearable and vibrant for everyday use. 

Dont be fooled by the tiny packaging, the tube may have a little product inside but would surely last you a long time since you only need a swipe or two to have full opacity of color. 

This product doesnt need a long intro. Its great and its worth having in your lippie stash. In fact, I want me the whole set coz even the nude colors look great on me. LOL

If you have tried NYX Xtreme Lip Creams, Id love to hear your take on them too! Feel free to leave a reply. *smooches and hugs* for everyone!

Building Up My Stash! ^_^

I find it funny that after taking a break from buying makeup, I found something else to splurge on. Well Im not really splurging on this "new"or should I say revived addiction since Im quite good at looking for cheapie deals for them, but Im just fascinated by how much my collection grew in a span of a week. LOL! 

Back in May 2011, I blogged about Kawaii Gadget Swings/Danglers, and my mini collection of Hello Kitty/Sanrio cellphone swings was just around 15-20 back then


some time last week, I "met" a new friend on facebook, she collects charms as well and I learned that she frequents this blog din.
And because I got jealous (inggitera much? LOL!) with how much she had on their Sanrio Charm stash, I started searching ebay and facebook for sellers of Sanrio Charms and was able to build my stash to this : 


from the time I took that picture to this date, I was able to score around 30 more charms to add to my humble sanrio charm stash. 

Not that Im trying to justify this new addiction but I honestly think this is better than collecting plushies or bigger items that can add up to the clutter I already have too much of in my bedroom. ^_^ 

Price range for these charms by the way is Php 40.00 - Php 250.00 per piece. 
Way cheaper by a few hundreds than buying directly from Gift Gate. :)

Whats Up, Everyone? :)

I took a little break from blogging to attend to personal responsibilities at home. ^_^ 
Im really sorry for the lack of updates, but now that Im back on track, I promise to 
keep up with posting new entries on this blog hopefully one entry per day so I can catch up. 

So, hows everyone? 
I wanna thank everyone who emailed me asking me to come back to blogging -- I didnt quit ladies, I just took a little break, thanks for missing me! <3 smooches to you guyssss! 

So today Im gonna share what Ive been buying lately. LOL! 
Im not a fan of facebook and I decided to create an account just to check on the sellers who have been "stealing" photos from my page, and for some odd reason, online shopping found its way to enter the picture. Not gonna talk about makeup this time, and for the love of kawaii stuff, my hunger pangs for cute stuff was revived. 

I love cute stuff and I love thrift shopping and when you put them together, Ill surely be doomed. Facebook shopping can be a bit tricky since Im used to shopping via eBay where you can check for sales feedbacks before purchasing, on facebook, its a different story, you have to be extra careful. 

Oh! I wanna share pala my purchases from the most generous ebay seller ive transacted with. Im so happy with my purchases from her, it brought back memories of my childhood. 
Aliw lang. hehe!
