On My Nails #7: Revlon Spiderman Nail Enamel Electric-Chrome Collection in Spidey Sense

Photo 7-19-14, 3 14 29 PM

“Me” time is something I truly cherish. That means I can do some pampering routines to make me feel and look good. Grooming my nails is one that I enjoy doing from time to time. The nail polish I recently purchased was this Revlon Spiderman Nail Enamel Electric-Chrome Collection in Spidey Sense. I am eyeing this for a long time, but I don’t know why I always let it pass. I got it for a discounted price of Php 225! It was on sale, and the original price was 350, if I recall correctly. This nail polish is a limited-edition shade, but will be on stock until August (per the Sales Associate!). I think I want to get the other shade, Gwen’s Crush too because it is such a stunning purple shade.

Spidey Sense is a coppery red and pink shade with gold shimmers. Since it is a chrome, the colors change at different angles. I tried recording a video to show the chrome effect, but it doesn’t translate well. The photos also don’t capture the chrome effect, but I promise you that it is pretty!

Product Empties & Mini Reviews #3

Product Empties Header

Hooray for empties! This is a very late post because I have already collected a lot of items in a paper bag. It is a big accomplishment for me to use up products, and even just hit pan on them. It means that I am able to get the full benefits of the product and the worth of my money. Honestly, there are some products here that already expired because I did not use them that much, but you’ll know why.

I love reading this kind of posts because I get ideas of what others are enjoying and those products may also work for me. I have used up a lot of bath products, but there are several beauty products as well. For now, I only featured beauty (and some skin care) product empties so that this post won’t be that long. I will probably post the bath products next, so stay tuned! Let’s now see what my empties are! :)

BDJ Box for June 2014 Unboxing: Benefit Cosmetics (Part 2!)

BDJ Header

Hashtag, late post! Hehe.

Unboxing a BDJ Box has been so therapeutic to me. I always feel my energy spike up because I am always eager to know what I will get. I have been a subscriber for more than a year already, and so far, so good! There were some boxes that did not exceed my high expectations, but majority did, so I am not going to give this box up yet! *wink*

BDJ Stickers

When I opened my June box, I felt kind of disappointed because I thought I will be getting the same deluxe samples that I already got from the March BDJ Box, but in fairness to this box, it contains three samples that I haven’t tried yet. How I wish that Benefit Cosmetics products are a little less expensive so that I can buy as many products as I want. Hehe. Let’s now move on to the contents of this box.

The TANGLE TEEZER Detangling Hairbrush Review

Tangle Teezer Original professional detangling hairbrush is THE creative hair brush which is loved by hairdressers and used in professional hair salons. It’s a super smooth operator that works the minute hair is lathered and rinsed and quickly and efficiently detangles hair leaving it silky, smooth and knot.

Featuring patented, uniquely designed teeth which flex and flick as they glide through the hair, Tangle Teezer eliminates tangles and knots on contact and minimises breakage, damage and splitting often caused by tugging and pulling on the hair shaft. Source

Are you having a hard time brushing your hair after bath because they are all wiry and tangled? The Tangle Teezer might be the hairbrush of your dreams! I discovered this hairbrush while watching different beauty gurus on YouTube. I often see Shaaanxo using this to brush her hair. Curious as I always am, I researched what it is and found that Luxola carries the brand. I bought the Original Mandarin Sweetie shade for 30 SGD (Php 1,069), but it is currently sold at TangleTeezer.com for £10.20 inc. VAT. The price I got it for is not bad at all because I was able to avail of free shipping because I reached Php 1,300.

On My Nails #6: Love & Beauty by Forever 21 Nail Color

IMG_1151

When I go to the mall, I usually don’t have a shopping list on hand so I sometimes end up buying things on impulse. That’s a very bad attitude, so please don’t be like me. If you want to buy something, do a little research first so that you will love what you get. Anyhow, I went inside Forever 21 at SM North Edsa, The Block to buy some nail art tools. Upon browsing, I saw the whole nail polish collection, and I ended up choosing colors that I liked. Because I do not have this Glitter Polish yet, I decided to pick it up. It doesn’t have a name on it, it just says “Blue/Pink”. It would be better if they put a specific name, right? The nail polish costs Php 150 per bottle, not bad for its size, so I picked up this, and the Sand Lacquer you see at the back.
