Benefit Cosmetics Box o’ Powder in Rockateur Review and Swatch!

Benefit Rockateur Box o' Powder

Like most beauty lovers, I easily get attracted to pretty, shiny things. Aside from the product itself, the beautiful packaging attracts me as well. When the Benefit Rockateur Box o’ Powder came out, I knew that I have to own it. I waited for a while before I finally bought this months ago, and it has been a favorite since then. (My Benefit Haul!).

Benefit Rockateur Box o’ Powder is a rose gold cheek powder said to give a provocative flush with a rush of heat. It costs $28.00 (USD), Php 1,600, with 5.0 g Net wt. 0.17 oz of product. I bought it from www.benefitcosmetics.com, but it is locally available at Benefit Cosmetics Greenbelt 5, Rustan’s Grand Mall Makati, Trinoma, and SM Mall Of Asia.

Top 5: Tips on How to be a Smart Online Shopper!

Logos

Online Shopping is my best friend! I can’t count how many times I have purchased online because of how convenient it is for me. Online shopping allows me to browse as long as I want to, without anyone bothering me, and it is also easier to checkout using PayPal or credit card than falling in a long queue to reach the cashier. I also love it when online shopping websites offer awesome beauty coupons, discount codes, and deals! They usually offer cheaper prices, they deliver the goods straight to your home, some websites offer refunds, and they sell a variety of goods, just like a one-stop shop!

I always try to be wiser with my spending. Luckily, I am now able to control myself better, although there are still times that I just couldn’t help it! Hello, limited edition makeup! Ladies, do ya feel me? I don’t want to be a makeup hoarder, so I make sure that I use my makeup in rotation.

Today, I will share some useful tips on how to become a smart online shopper. I do not know everything, but I hope that some of these tips will help you.

HAD A BUSY but FUN WEEKEND! :-)
Offline Blog Sale (2)

Last Saturday, I went to the Offline Blog Sale of my favorite beauty bloggers, Vee, Tellie, Bea, Shari, Rae, Pat and Hazel at CrepeMan Cafe. I missed Hazel, because I left early. A lot of items were up for grab at very discounted prices! The prices of high-end brands were even less than a thousand bucks!

Offline Blog Sale

I was able to quickly browse through their stuff, and ended up buying three items. I may have purchased more, but I don’t carry a lot of cash. (Wasn’t able to ask if the items are payable when able? Haha!) I didn’t stay too long because Mr. Man was with me and I don’t want to keep him waiting.

My Latest Skin and Hair Care Haul!

Sachajuan Volume Powder, Teen Skin Actives Oil/Shine Control Skin Balm, Mario Badescu Facial Spray, Nip + Fab Dark Circle Fix

Don’t we all wish that weekends are longer? Because of Typhoon Luis, the weather is super gloomy, hence, it is harder to be off my bed. As they say, it is the cuddle weather. Hehe! Anyway, let me share with you the latest products that I got from Luxola. I kind of lay low in buying makeup products because you know that I already have tons. I browsed for some hair and skin care items, and I have found some items that I would love to try. I started late on skin care, but I am trying to at least prevent further damage, like my dark circles and eye bags. I am still on a hunt for the best products that will work for me.

I was able to use my earned credits and discount codes so I saved a lot on this buy. If you use my link and buy for the first time, I will earn some credits. So, I urge you to sign-up and be an insider as well because of these credits! Plus, they always go on sale, believe me!

hubby is on the background *LOL*

You already know that I am trying to experiment more on colorful eye makeup. So for today’s EOTD (Eye of the Day), I used my Sleek MakeUp Aqua Collection: Lagoon i-Divine Palette. It is unfortunately a limited edition palette but there are a lot of similar colorful palettes out there from the drugstore. The lip product I am wearing here, if I recall correctly, is a Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain, which I like.

New Brand Alert: Heroine Make – So Japanese!

IMG_0382 (1)

Being a beauty lover, I get so excited when new products are released in the market, especially if they are from brands that are known for great quality products. Recently, Heroine Make, a new Japanese brand, launched here in the Philippines, and it was an honor to be invited by Liz of Project Vanity to attend the live makeup demo of Japanese Makeup artist, Ms. Sayuri Igarashi at the SM Beauty section of Mall of Asia.

Heroine Make has been turning women into princesses since 2005, when it launched a revolutionary range of eye makeup in Japan. Since then, the brand has become a familiar sight to shoppers in Hong Kong and Singapore, where the lush romantic packaging fills the shelves in Sasa, Bon-jour, and drugstores. Now, as Heroine Make gains popularity across Asia, it’s turning its wide manga eyes towards the Philippines by bringing top of the line products to the shores of Manila and beyond!

I first knew of this brand from my BDJ Box Elite Box last July, but have only used the sunscreen from the bunch of products. It was a delight to see the products used in action, and to know more about the benefits, and how to apply them. Today’s post is picture heavy because I took a lot of photos while Ms. Sayuri demos the products. Hope you enjoy reading, and let me know your thoughts!
