Benefit Box O' Powders' Packaging Gets Revamped

A lot of beautyhags were complaining about the not-so-nice packaging idea of the Benefit Box O' Powders before, aside from the fact that its made of cardboard (Ive got nothing against this since its environment-friendly), its quite inconvenient that the cover isnt attached to the box and it doesnt have a mirror. 

Swatchfest VII : NYX Slim Lip Pencils

 I just figured that a good lipliner can work better than using Lipstick Primers in making the lippie stay put and to avoid feathering lip color especially for highly pigmented lipsticks, 

NYX Slim Lip Pencils offer vibrant, matte finish lip colors that can be used as a lipliner to avoid feathering lipsticks or can be applied as a full lip color. These Lip Pencils can also be topped with lipgloss or lipbalm to hydrate the lips.

Swatchfest VI : NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils

Sorry Ladies if I took a long break from swatching, the weather was uncooperative thats why I wasnt able to do my swatches last week, it was so dark outside and I cant really capture the real color of the lippies. 

Going back to my swatch porn, Im posting a short review and a partial rundown of the NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils 

Enjoy! :)

All for the love of NYX Stuff

If some of you havent noticed, I made a separate tab for the NYX Swatches on my Blog's Navigation Tab to make it easier for readers to locate the swatches I made for NYX and Digital Traincase. :) 

I have also grouped the shades into several categories such as Creme Finish, Frosts, MLBB, Nudes, Reds, Pinks and MLBB Shades to make it easier for you, Ladies to choose the perfect shade that suits your taste and personality. 

Ill be updating the contents of that page from time to time with new categories and new product swatches, so please check back often. 

Thanks to everyone who made my NYX Swatch Posts a hit. 

Love and Kisses to Everyone! :) 

UrbanDecay Primer Potion Professional Size Packaging Fail

Its another rainy and lazy afternoon, Argh! Im hating this weather since it makes you so lazy to move around and do something, even my dogs are in their own beds sleeping the whole afternoon, and they get up just to eat. haha! 

So today Im gonna share what I think of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Pro Size. 
Its not actually a review coz Im gonna be writing about the packaging only (and my little boo-boo about it haha!). 

The Professional Size Urban Decay Primer Potion was an answered prayer for me, I guess all UDPP fans can relate to this, all of us hated that sexy tube UDPP initially came in.

Dog Owners, Stay Away From PAWS ALLEY Pet Center

Posting this story to serve as a reminder for Dog Owners not to leave their dogs for grooming, that no matter how good the feedbacks are for a certain Pet Grooming Center, it would be best that you observe while the groomers do their thing. 

One afternoon, while waiting for Mom and Dad's go signal to fetch them at the airport, we decided to bring our shih tzus with us since nobody was available to look after them at home, we killed time by having our oldest shih tzu, Hachi groomed at Paws Alley (bad choice!) in Hobbies Macapagal.

On Thieves and Blog Content Stealing

Just a little reminder for sellers who steal contents of other people's blog just to sell their items, please have proper business ethics, if you wanna sell your item, and if you wanna show your potential buyers a swatch of what you are selling but you cant ask for permission or you dont wanna provide a link where you grabbed the photos, JUST MAKE YOUR OWN SWATCHES! 

I took much of my time to do my swatches, take pictures, and edit them just to make viewing of the swatches more enjoyable and easier for my readers, as far as I (and all the other bloggers are) am concerned, I think I should get a little courtesy if you guys wanna use the images you find in this blog. 

"Researching" thru Google is nothing compared to the effort ive exerted to make the swatches and show them to everyone here. I could have disabled the right click function on this blog but then I realized it was a move that shows arrogance since only a little percentage of readers would have the intention to steal the contents of my blog (or anyone elses blog in that matter). 

If you wanna earn money the right way, invest and take time in making your own swatches rather than just being a sneaky thief stealing other people's images. 

If you dont have time to do so, then I guess you have to MAKE TIME to ask the rightful owner before copying anything. 

Im sorry if I sound mean here by calling them thieves, coz they really are. Its been a couple of days since I posted my swatches and some seller stole it and posted it on her Facebook Selling Page. Unfortunately, she tagged someone who recognized that the pictures are mine.

The reason why I watermarked the images with my blog's URL and The Digital Traincase's  selling page is because WE own the pictures. The stock photos I borrowed were also authorized by the people who own them thats why I was able to repost them here, and I didnt take their watermark off to show my respect and courtesy. 

I hope everyone else does that too.

SMASHBOX Halo Glow Color Boosting Powder

Hey There Sisters! 

I'm sorry its been how long since the last review I published, I was down with flu (Thank God I'm okay now) and been busy with a few things recently. 

'Nuff with the excuses haha! Going back to my review.. 

Ebay has this special spot in my schedule that no matter how busy I am, I still find time to browse eBay for cheapie deals on make-up and what-nots. 

As I was browsing, I came across listings of Smashbox' Halo Glow Color Boosting Powder, 
and because the auction title has the word "GLOW", I got curious and googled about reviews for the product, the product is highly-raved on MakeUp Alley, it had good ratings from people who have tried it. 

Clickity me, I immediately contacted the seller and asked her if she can end the listing early for me (yea, I was impatient and couldnt wait for the auction to end haha! :D), paid rightaway and got the item the day after.

DiOR Gaucho Lip Palette

Im feeling so lazy today and got nothing to do so I decided to review something in my stash. 

This palette was given to me as pasalubong from Dad's trip to Malaysia last year. 

I was surprised to see that he has good taste in choosing which colors would look good on me haha! :D
