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?

Maybelline Clearsmooth All-in-One Shine Free Cake Powder | Pretty Powerful Compact

14 Jul

This came in the May BDJ Box and I was very happy that I got the perfect match for my skin tone. The Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-One Foundation has been in the market for a year already. I actually have the refill even before I got the travel sized one. I think the case is very cute with its pastel pink packaging and the label in front.

Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-OneThe refill, which is only 2×2 inches in size, retails for only 149php and I chose it over the 249php palm-sized compact with a mirror and a sponge case. The SA told me that there had been complaints about the powder being easily “broken” if it is in the palm sized compact so it’s better to purchase the refill. Unfortunately, even the powder inside the refill broke — the middle part fell as if it’s only filled with air. But before that happened, I brought it with me everywhere I went. Now I just bring with me the one I got from BDJ Box.

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.

Who wouldn’t love these?!

Maybelline Crazy Sale – 30% off

5 Dec


Who would not love the sound of that? It is that sound you hear from the cashier section of any malls. And for that matter, spending for the things you love, for much less the price sounds nicer. Right?

So when I saw the ad from Maybelline, I knew I had to make a haul. Again.


Here are the products:


I was able to convince hubby to buy me new stuff. 🙂 Thanks daddy!

I finally got the powder version of my Maybelline liquid foundation. And I am so excited to try them out together. It is always best to use products from the same brand for better results.

I was surprised with the sponge. Other refills which come with sponges aren’t kept like this. Good job, Maybelline!

My smile was from ear to ear when I was purchasing this. I said in my previous post that I would want to get Red Revival and Amethyst Ablaze. Too bad Amethyst Ablaze isn’t part of the sale so I put off that want for now. I can wait.

Can’t wait to try these!

REVIEW: Maybellline Color Sensational Lipstick

14 Nov

I wanted to try out these lippies since I’ve been wanting the look of nude lips and fuchsia lips. I got these from one of my fave beauty bloggers, Ms. Gem of

Fifth Ave Fuchsia and Warm Me Up

These are such a steal!

Warm Me Up and Fifth Ave Fuchsia

I don’t quite get the number labels since they already have names for the label. But I think it is easier for others to remember the numbers.

swatches: Warm Me Up and Fifth Ave Fuchsia

I wanted to upload close up pics of these on my lips but I can’t take a perfect shot. I am practicing though! 🙂

Here are my likes and dislikes:

(+) It has a creamy, moisturizing formula that doesn’t dry out my lips.

(+) The lipsticks are very pigmented. Warm Me Up gives a ‘my-lips-but-better’ shade and is almost like MAC’s Brave. Fifth Ave Fuchsia gives a hint of ‘tint’ in my lips.

(+) It doesn’t last the whole day but color stays on my lips for about 4 hours max.

(+) Color Sensational Lipstick have very sleek packaging. They really have improved the package of the old ones.

(-) Quite pricey for 399php!

(-) There is a subtle scent to it that I am not a fan of but I can live with it.

Will I repurchase? Other shades perhaps. I want to try Red Revival and Amethyst Ablaze.

October HAUL

14 Nov

I know this is late but I forgot that I had this post in my drafts folder only. It wasn’t published due to poor net connections. Well, here is the post.

While going around Watsons SM North Edsa, I found myself wanting…wanting to update my cosmetics 🙂

OCT haul + freebies

From L-R: (free) Clean and Clear Foaming Facial Wash, (free) Clean and Clear Moisturizer, Schick Shave Guard Foam, Schick Exacta 2 Shavers, Jocarste and Bobbie Nail Polishes, Shawill Two Way Eyebrow Cake, EverBilena Grip Cuticle Scissors, Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner, Marionnaud Blush Brush, (free) J&J Baby Milk Bath

I will blog about the eyebrow cake, gel liner and blush brush on a separate post to make it more

These are just basic necessities so I am just going to blog about the new stuff. The eyebrow cake is 128php and I got the shade 01. Here are the swatches.

At long last, I finally got my hands on my first ever gel liner. 

I was always in the lookout for gel liners because I like its matte effect. I have been eyeing on Etude house, Fanny Serrano, and 4U2 gel liners too. But since Maybelline has a 20% discount off, I grabbed it.

Here is my first brush from Marionnaud. I have been seeing and hearing raves about this so I am excited to try this one out. I will be doing a separate post for this brush soon after I try it.

Marionnaud N32 blush brush

I love that there are lots of freebies in this haul! I use the J&J Milk Bath because my little Iya use HHN baby wash. I gave the Clean & Clear foaming facial wash sachets to my hubby. I will be trying the Clean & Clear moisturizer as soon as I finish up my current fave moisturizer from Krave.

Hoping for another haul post! 🙂
