Krave’s Lip and Cheek Salve| Color as you Heal

26 Apr

I am all for multi-tasking products and since this one is a lip and cheek product, you can bet that this one was on my to-buy list. But then I remembered I have a 1000 gift certificate from Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals since I won the Fearless Krave Mom last year Mother’s day.

The Krave team suggested I get 2 oil eliminators and 1 lip and cheek salve. I agreed because I really wanted to try the salve ever since it was released. I received it a day after we talked. Fast, right?

I like that it was sealed when I received it, assuring me it was new. It has a very glam, sleek looking packaging with a purple label “KRAVE”.

Unboxing April 2014 BDJ Box | Exclusive Pixy (Truly Asian Beauty) Box

15 Apr

I attended a Baccalaureate mass last Saturday and commuting home left me lightheaded. It somehow disappeared when I saw this in our living room, waiting for me. Actually I got 2 packages yesterday – one from Sample Room and one from BDJ Box.

I lifted the April BDJ Box and became giddy when it felt heavy again! YAY! Became excited when I saw an Exclusive BDJ Box from a new makeup brand in the Philippines, PIXY. No doubt BDJ Box is the first to let us Bellas try the said brand. This new brand is an Indonesian cosmetics line which is formulated using Japanese technology and ingredients. Truly made for Asian skin, agree?

Ellana Lip and Cheek Gel in Ruby | Are you Red-y?!

8 Mar

Ellana Cosmetics is another brand which is proudly Pinoy made. It recently made a comeback, which caters improved and new products. I haven’t tried any of them yet until BDJ Box included one of its bestsellers in the January-February BDJ Box.

The shade I got was Ruby and from the bottle, it looks bloody red with blue undertone. I love the functionality of the packaging. It is a pump plastic bottle which can withstand falls. The pump, on the other hand, has no cover but it locks as you twist it – making it very travel friendly! The drawing / label design looks very sophisticated and feminine!

Maybelline Baby Lips (New Bright Collection) in Tangerine Pop | Too Sheer for its Name

15 Oct

Every girl I know loves lip balms! And why shouldn’t we?

So when the famous Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms released their newest collection called “New Bright Collection,” I wanted to try one stat! Good thing the October 2013 BDJ Box included one in the color that I like — Tangerine Pop!

If you would notice, I love anything coral — from blushes to lipstick. I just think it looks good on someone with a yellow undertone like me. And with the catchy name this lip balm has, who wouldn’t want it, right?

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake | As Sweet as its Name

29 Jul

Revlon Colorburst lip butters have been in the market for more than a year.  I have tried swatching them when we are out and I would love to own one but I really can’t seem to have the strength to buy one for myself. I think it is a bit expensive since it is more like a tinted lip balm which is very much widely available in different brands with a very high price of 525php for only 2.5g of product.

Thankfully, this was included in the massive July BDJ Box and I finally have one for myself!

AVON Vitaluscious Lipstick in Reviving Red | Casual Red for Everyday

2 Jul

Finding this in my June BDJ Box was fine with me. Especially when I saw the shade that I got — Reviving Red.

I have a number of Avon Lipsticks because it has good quality, fairly priced and there are a lot of shades and finish to choose from. I stopped buying them since all the lipsticks easily slides out of its tube. At first I thought it was my fault, that I have been not handling them well, but then all the Avon Ultra Moisture Rich lippies I have were all out of their tubes. I planned melting them and transferring to other containers because it is such a hassle that it keeps falling off.

This Avon Vitaluscious Lipstick is no different from the previous ones I had. It had the same bulky, silver and black tube packaging which is sealed. Mine has not fallen out yet but I sill not be disappointed anymore if it does (though I handle them very carefully and keep them properly).

Maybelline Baby Lips Color Lip Balm in Berry Crush | Berry Effective

20 Jun

The very first makeup product I ever used was a lip balm. I was introduced to it back when I was still six years old. From then on, lip balms have been a part of me. Back in high school, whether in school or not, I remember having my rosary, handkerchief, comb and lip balm in my pocket.

For my every day, I only use a lip balm or tinted lip balm. I have a lot of lip balms from various brands because I felt like it is really a need.

BDJ Box almost always puts in a lip product maybe because they think that, generally, lip products especially lip balms are a need for every girl. For the May BDJ Box, I was glad to see another lip balm!

Maybelline Baby Lips Color Lip Balm in Berry Crush was the one included in my box and I loved its shade and scent! I used this in the MNY 7-day challenge and if you want to see it, click here.
