Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow | BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge

14 May

I usually have one favorite item in every BDJ Box I receive. For the April 2015 BDJ Box, my favorite item is the Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow.

This was said to be a dupe for Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick. I was able to try the Bobbi Brown one (pinkish shade)  during the makeup workshop I attended last Saturday and I can attest that it may pass as a dupe.

There are three shades available – Peach Glow, Rose Glow and Bronze Glow. I got Bronze Glow and even if I were going to purchase just one among the three, I will still be getting the Bronze Glow because I love its shades!

Topaz Mommy x Bobbi Brown Makeup Workshop

13 May

I arrived in Bobbi Brown Megamall (between Bldg A and Bldg B) 11 am sharp. There were mommies too, I assumed, my fellow winners/readers of Topaz Mommy, a blog by Ms. Frances A. Sales. We were all waiting and when Ms. Frances arrived, my jaw dropped. I whispered to my new mommy friend, Aubrey, “Ang ganda ni Ms. Frances!” She walked through the store, wearing a black tube top, black pants, pearl necklace and a bare face– simply gorgeous!

I love this Bobbi Brown store because it is beautifully arranged, and the products are so pretty!

We were doing some icebreakers and just chatting before the workshop started. We also took turns swatching which shade will match our skin tones.Ms. Frances gave out Leuchtturm notebooks (Php 1200) to each of us.

Bobbi Brown Manager also dropped in to say hi. Ms. Sam Sadhwani was also there! We did not know that there was a mini workshop room inside the Bobbi Brown flagship store! Ms. Tamara was the one who taught us about the basics of makeup application. The model, of course, was Ms. Frances!

Unboxing the December 2014 BDJ Box | CoverGirl Exclusive

18 Jan

I know this is a late post because it is already mid-January of 2015, but hey, I am still going to push this. I received my December BDJ Box (Covergirl Exclusive box) last month. I wasn’t really expecting any collaboration with the December BDJ Box so I was left in awe when there was a hint in facebook that it’s going to be an exclusive box. December 2013 was a Max Factor exclusive box and I am so happy that the December 2014 was a Covergirl exclusive box!

15 Jul

Classes are suspended today and what better way to spend this bed weather than blog? Right? I know I have been not blogging lately due to work but I am really trying to. I still take pictures of products but haven’t really had time to take pictures of actual usage.

But for the BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge, I really tried to document my usage.

Here is a photo collage of the 7 sample sizes that I used for the week.

MAKEUP TAG

26 Apr

I gave in to the tag from RareVanity. I am an avid reader of Ms. Gem’s blog and she is even one of the reasons why I started blogging. I read her post and thought that this was quite interesting… So without further ado, here are my answers:

SKINCARE

How many times do you wash your face daily?

On a regular basis, I wash my face twice daily though there are days when I wash it thrice because a) it’s sooo hot and b) I have to prepare for something.

What skin type do you have? (dry, oily. combo)

I have sensitive, oily and acneic skin. I breakout due to hormones (pms and menstruation days) and reaction to new products.

What is your current facial wash?

I alternate using Krave Cupine Aloepa Facial Wash (morning) and ZA facial wash (night).

Do you exfoliate?

I only exfoliate at night and not more than twice a week. I feel it’s better at night it’s as if I’m preparing my skin for its “renewal time”.

What brand do you use?

Depending on m my mood, I alternate using Human Nature’s Purifying Facial Scrub, Cure, and Olay regenerist megasonic.

What moisturizer do your use?

I collect moisturizers but currently I am using different moisturizers for the morning and at night. In the morning, I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then Celeteque Anti-aging moisturizer with SPF15. At night I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then ZA Collagen Moisturizer.

Do you have freckles?

I have none.

Do you use eye cream?

Yes! In the morning I use Olay Regenerist Eye Cream and Lash Serum. At night, I use Avon Anew Genics Eye Cream.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

Sadly, yes. I easily react to products with harsh ingredients so I always opt for those safe for sensitive skin.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ? I wanted to but I haven’t used it yet.

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?
