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!

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!

2 Aug

Say hello to BDJ Box’s new look! As you can see from the picture, it is twice as big as the previous version, almost as big as their latest BDJ Box Elite from Heroine Make. Amazeballs, right?!

July 2014 BDJ Box Pure and Simple

The July BDJ Box was themed “Pure and Simple” and it arrived in my doorstep August 3. I’ve been seeing in instagram posts of those who received it earlier so I was kind of not that excited already. Nevertheless, I am still curious which variants I got…and crossing my fingers that I did not get the same items I received from the previous boxes I got.

Overview of what’s included for the Pure and Simple themed box:

Keratin Complete Travel Valet Care Kit

Pink Sugar Fine Fragrance Mist

Celeteque Back Acne Spray

Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette

Hygienix Hand Gel

Hygienix Hand Spray

Vitress Heat Protect

Vitress Hair Repair

Nivea Pure Effect Exfoliating Wipes

Nivea In Shower Skin Conditioner

Nivea Anti-Perspirant Invisible Spray

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.

FS eyeshadow in Ash Bronze | Great Eyebrow Product!

22 Oct

Yes you’ve read it right — Great eyebrow product…

FS cosmetics has been around for so long yet this is my first product from this brand. I wanted to get their eyebrow powder kit but the SA told me that the shade I matched with in their eyebrow powder is almost like this Ash Bronze Eyeshadow. So there, I got this instead because it serves two purposes – as an eyeshadow and an eyebrow powder!

I am using this more of an eyebrow powder so if you want to see how it is, click Continue Reading.
