Midyear 2017 empties

I can't remember if these are everything, sometimes I throw the empty containers away, sometimes I keep them.  Anyways, here are a few of those that I was able to keep.

  1. Banila Co Clean it Zero Cleansing Balm - I love this so much that this is my holy grail cleansing balm.  It can blur your eyes for a while, but I just love it so much! Actually I'm on on my 3rd tub already.  I love the smell, I love that it melts away my makeup just like that.  It removes the step of scrubbing your face and or rubbing your face with cotton pad or tissue which sometimes can irritate your skin.   You can read my first impression here
  2. Etude House  Lovely Cookie Blusher (Grapefruit Jelly) - This has been with me since 2015. Haha and I haven't finished it! But my skin is already itchy when I apply this so I have to buy a new one.  This just gives you that hint of blush.
  3. Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream - I like that this is very lightweight to my eyes.  I can't say that this did anything remarkable to my eyes, well maybe also because I always forget to apply this in my eyes.   Read my 1st impressions of this here.  To think this lasted for 16 months, for a small tube although like I said before, I did not use this every day.
  4. Heroinemake Long & Curl Mascara - This has become my holy grail mascara ever since I tried this this year!  It's just perfect for your eyelashes.  I know that mascaras are only supposed to be used for 3 months only, but I was able to stretch this to 5 months.  Well it's expensive, so why throw it away at 3 months? Anyways, at 5 months, there's still some left of the product but I started noticing that its performance is not as great as 1-2 months of initial usage.  I'm using the Volume & Curl Mascara now and I'll let you know what I think once I finished it. Check my first impressions of the Long & Curl Mascara here
  5. Biore Uru-Uru 2-in-1 instant foaming wash - This has a delicious apple scent which I love, lasted pretty much for 4 months.  I use this once a day at night as part of my double cleansing routine.  This feels like putting marshmallow onto your face.  At first, this stings my skin, but after a while of continous usage, I don't feel the sting anymore.  If you want to read my first impressions, here
  6. Biore UV Face Milk - I just love this, even if this is for oily skin, me, being a dry to combination skin type, this just works well.  I love Biore sunscreens! I'm just trying out the other lines, but I've been loyal to Biore ever since trying out my first Biore Sunscreen last year. Biore sunscreens are just my holy grail sunscreen, not even canmake mermaid gel, nor Innisfree sunscreen could replace this.  I used this all up in 5 months of everyday, once a day, one layer of application.

KJM Cheek & Lip Tint - Review

I've seen lots of beauty gurus raved about this cheek and lip tint, that it was affordable and lasting power is amazing.  I bought mine in the Trendsetter's Bazaar to try it out (even if I have lots of lip tints already.... 😅).

It's in a plastic bottle, approximately 8.5 cm long, 2 cm in diameter.  It has a black label with golden lettering.  I like that this is compact and can easily fit inside your pcoket.

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel Sunscreen - Review

I just finished my Biore UV perfect Face Milk and I decided to try another line from Biore. One that is their number one sunscreen.  Don't get me wrong, I love the Perfect Face Milk line, I just thought I would try this out for a change.

This is in a plastic, pastel blue container with white twistable plastic cap.  It has a silver engraved lettering.  This has more content of 90 mL.

Battle of Retractable Brushes

I've been a retractable brush user since I started my journey in playing with makeup.  It started with a P100+ retractable blush brush I bought in Divisoria and I'm hooked to retractable brushes ever since. Despite that retractable brush as something bought in Divisoria, but the bristles of that brush are so soft and gentle to the skin that up to now I use it when I travel since it's so compact and still reliable.

I would like to share with you my experiences with 3 of my retractable brushes.  Brushes are an investment and they should be a value of your money.

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

One day I just woke up and decided I wanted to try any one of Lush product.  I shy away from Lush stores open here in the Philippines.  Mainly because I think the smell of the store although it smells really good but I find it overpowering.  But I guess something came to me that day and I just decided to try any Lush product.

I did not even look at the net for suggestions which product to buy.  It's just like a spontaneous thing 😆

I kind of like the packaging, of this lip scrub.  It's in a glass jar with black plastic screw cover.  It's stated that this lip scrub is freshly handmade.  What I love about this the most is that at the bottom of the jar, there's a  cartoon picture stating the person/nickname of the person who made it, the manufacture date, and the expiry date as well.  I like the idea of having the name of the person at the package, since it gives you that 'special' feeling you always get when you receive something handmade.  It's also stated in the package that they fight animal testing.

Pink Sugar Sugar Tint Lip & Cheek Tint

This was one of the most popular products from the Philippines.  I was kind of late in trying this out, but better late than never.

The shade that I got is: Love Bug

This comes in a clear plastic tube with black cap and a doe foot applicator attached to the black cap.  Since the tube is clear, you can see the color of the lip tint it contains.  The package weighs 9g (0.3 oz) and 10.5 cm in length and 1.5 cm in diameter

Battle of the Peripera Ink Bottles

In service is done!!! I can now go back to blogging again! Hope I can continue blogging... 

When I was looking at the Peripera Ink Lip tints, I thought the Airy Ink Velvet and the Ink velvet were promising, but I don't know which to choose since there were mixed reviews for both.  I was looking for a head to head comparison but I couldn't find it at that time yet, well maybe because that air ink velvet was still new at that time and people are just beginning to buy from that line.

So I thought of making a head to head comparison of the 3 Peripera Ink Lip tints that I have: Peripera Peri's Ink, Peripera Peri's Ink Velvet and Peripera Air Ink Velvet.
