MAC Keepsakes Viva Glamorous Lip Palette Swatches!

Viva Glamorous Lip Palette (8)

Viva Glamorous Lip Palette

For the first time ever, six of our most iconic VIVA GLAM shades together in a new Viva Glamorous Lip Palette, a sleek little compact with shades from shimmery pink beige to pearlized plum. Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

US$40.00

When the holiday collections started to pop up everywhere from different brands last year, this particular lip palette caught my eye, and I knew that I wanted it. I don’t own any MAC Viva Glam lipsticks so to have one palette, with all the six Viva Glam shades, for only $40, is such a steal! Each tube of MAC lipsticks costs $16 per 3 grams and this palette has 1.2 grams each. Fortunately, a dear friend got me this palette in the U.S. so I got it exactly for $40!

I have not worn each of them on a full day, so this post is more likely a swatch fest for you. There are reviews of each shade online if you want more information about them. So, let’s begin!

Sleek Makeup i-Divine Palette in Sunset Review and Swatches

Sleek I-Divine Sunset Palette (3)

Good day, Ladies! I am trying to catch up on my eyeshadow palette reviews, so today, it’s all about my Sleek Makeup i-Divine Palette in Sunset which I got from Luxola. I bought this palette because I got particularly drawn on the orange and blue shades! They are so beautiful! Also, all the other shades on this palette are definitely wearable anytime of the year!

Sleek eyeshadows are of great quality in my opinion, and they offer a diverse range — mattes, neutrals, brights, smokey and a lot more. I have reviewed the Sleek Makeup Ultra Mattes V2 Darks before, if you want to check that out!

Let’s now take a look at the Sunset Palette!

Happy New Year everyone! This is my very first post for this year, and I am glad to be back again. I enjoyed having a short break, but I miss blogging here at the same time. Hope you missed me!

Today, I will be showing a tutorial on how I make my nails glam for winter (though we don’t really have winter in our country!) but it feels like it because of the cool weather! I am enjoying it so much!

Let’s start!

2014 Plump Cheeks Roundup

Happy New Year Guys!

Sorry for my lame photoshop skillz. Hahaha!

2014 was a very productive year for my blog! I can’t believe that I invested a lot of time writing blogs at least two to three times a week. I am not a full-time beauty blogger, but I enjoyed sharing my experiences, tips, makeup of the day, and a bunch of random things to everyone who stumble upon my blog. I am also very grateful meeting new friends online, and in person (You guys are awesome, and I love you!) who keep me inspired to write more, even if I am not really a writer, and I admit that I commit a lot of errors but I am not afraid of learning!

Enough rambling! Haha! I am here to share with you my favorite posts from 2014 that you might have missed! Feel free to comment, or share some tips on how I can improve and anything in general. Here they  are:

FOREVER 21 High Pigment Gloss in Burgundy Swatch and Review

Forever21 Lip Gloss in Burgundy 1

Forever21 Lip Gloss in Burgundy  3

I am not really a lip gloss type of girl but if I find a nice formula with an affordable price, I need to share it! This FOREVER 21 High Pigment Gloss in Burgundy (Php 200+) was an impulse buy while I was looking for new accessories inside the store. I thought the shade is so perfect for the season and because it says “High Pigment” got me really curious. I am curious if it will live up to its claim because I know that a lip gloss is normally sheer and worn on top of a lipstick.

Let’s now check the deets!

MAC Heroine Lipstick Review and Swatches

MAC Heroine Lipstick 3

HAPPY TUESDAY!

I mentioned on Twitter before that MAC Cosmetics will have its own boutique at SM North EDSA soon! GREAT! But…not really since I will always be tempted to go inside to buy more makeup that I don’t need that my eyes will fancy. You can always find me wandering around SM because that’s where me and my hubs usually shop and buy groceries. The MAC pop-up booth has been there for months but I never go near it because I told myself that I don’t need more makeup, and I can buy MAC cheaper online. One day, I gave in and the damage has been done.

So here I am reviewing another lipstick, and this is a lipstick that I never thought that I will buy. I tried it on, and got sold. Love at first swipe, I should say. I thought that I can never pull off this color, but I am totally wrong! I suggest that you try it on first before buying so that you will know its magic. *wink*

MAC Heroine Lipstick 1

MAC “Heroine” Lipstick (Php 1,000) is a bright purple shade with a matte finish. Temptalia said that it is a medium-dark, red toned purple with a satin finish.

BDJ Box for December 2014 Unboxing: Covergirl Exclusive!

BDJ Box Covergirl Box 1

Gasp! I swear that I got so excited upon seeing an Instagram post that this month’s BDJ Box was Covergirl Exclusive! Covergirl is close to my heart because it is the first brand that got me into wearing concealers. I am now on my third tube of their TruBlend concealer #4. I also love their Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation which really lives up to its claims that it is a primer, concealer and foundation in one!

BDJ Box Covergirl Box Katy Perry Cover

Hey, it’s Katy Perry! I love her music so much. She really fits to be the “cover girl” for this brand because she’s so stunning!

Enough rambling, let’s now see what are inside!

Things I bought from Wishtrend.com!

You may already know that I love online shopping. It is very convenient that I can browse until forever on a website when I want to without anyone bugging me. :-) I wrote about some tips and tricks on how to be a smart online shopper, if you have not read it already.

Recently, I was invited to be an affiliate of Wishtrend.com. I am really unfamiliar with their website but I still went and checked it out.

Wishtrend

Here are the information I got from their website:

WISHTREND shows the latest Korean trend to the global market, which includes hot cosmetic items from skin care, make-up and men’s to babies’. You will see the various ranges of product lines according to your skin type
as well as the best quality, moderate price and the most recent beauty trend of Korea.

WISHTREND offers delivery to every country. Wherever you are, you won’t miss a chance to experience Korean beauty products. It’s possible to get the WISHTREND.com box within 2 to 4 days via EMS, and 7 to 14 days via general service. It is safe until it reaches your hand. Delivery of WISHtrend is safe. We make sure everything will be fully wrapped by air pack inside a box surely. We guarantee that our products have a safe journey to everywhere you wish.

Things that I like about their website are:

They carry Korean cosmetics. I have fallen in love with Korean cosmetics when I first tried Missha here in the Philippines. To date, there are already a lot of brands that opened here in our country but they sell them with STEEP prices. I actually love buying from ebay.ph straight from Korean sellers because they sell the products half off or very low prices.

They ship worldwide! So convenient. It would really mean a lot if U.S. websites such as Sephora ships here for FREE. Lol. That was just wishful thinking. But, at Wishtrend, based on my recent purchase, I was just charged USD 7.00 for standard shipping. That’s a decent amount for me. They also offer FREE shipping on some products. Sweet!

So the next thing I knew, I signed up for their affiliate program! :-) There’s a special discount code worth USD25.00 after signing up, so I took my time and browsed their website, and found what I want.

Let’s check it out!
