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.

BDJ BOX Beauty Social Event

23 Apr

Last March 24, I attended the BDJ Box Beauty Social Event with my hubby and baby, my brother and his girl friend. Everyone is welcomed but the pre-registered ones are prioritized. We signed up and confirmed our registrations and got a pamphlet like this:


I was scheduled to attend two talks: Beauty Questions Solved and All Dolled Up. Both of which I attended standing behind the audience since my little girl cannot sit still.



We were a bit overwhelmed to which booth we should visit first. After the 1pm talk, I visited each booth one by one. There are some booths with plenty of people around so I wasn’t able to squeeze myself in.

Here are some of the participating booths and happenings in the event:


Karla and I also got our shot in the Brow Haus’ free upper lip threading…and it hurt! I look funny I know but that was the proper position. The skin on the upper lip should be stretched. Oh well it was our first time and my upper lip felt amazingly smooth!


We also had our chance at the nail art section. I wanted the lemon but there were only 5 pieces left so I had to choose another. I just chose cupcakes for the other 5 pieces. Lemons for my left hand and cupcakes for the right. My little girl was busy posing at the booths decors.


This was our only picture there. Haggardness and all, we managed to smile because we were happy ladies that day.20130423-172913.jpg

Of course we didn’t come home empty handed. We love the loot bag. Though we weren’t able to use the Shiseido voucher inside the loot bag, we were still happy with the event.



Thank you so much BDJ BOX Team! It was nice meeting you all. Congratulations on the success of this event. Looking forward to more events with you…

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!
