My Favourite Things | August 2016

My Favourite Things is a blog link-up by Eireen and Raisa about well, our favourite things. It can be anything — a book, makeup stuff, food, places, gadgets, website, people — and it can be as few or as many as you’d like.

We’re more than halfway through the year already, and I’m just writing my third favourites for this year heh. But I promise, this month’s favourites are so good and interesting enough to make up for my lack of dedication for the other seven months. Let’s jump right into it!

Finish 5 by September | What I Used Up, What I Didn’t

Aloha!

About two months ago, I launched a challenge called the Finish 5 wherein I targeted to empty out five items from my skincare and makeup stash. As someone who has never (and I really mean never) finished anything beauty related plus my hoarding tendencies (beauty-related or not), this was something that I strived to be really conscious of on a daily basis.

I’m super excited to show you my trash my progress (sort of), so hop on in!

My Favourite Things | July 2016

My Favourite Things is a blog link-up by Eireen and Raisa about well, our favourite things. It can be anything — a book, makeup stuff, food, places, gadgets, website, people — and it can be as few or as many as you’d like.

I know, I know, I know, it took me seven months before I remembered to blog my second of this series! To be honest, I didn’t think I had favourites last month, mainly because I got so busy that I couldn’t pay attention to stuff like these. But then I realized, because I didn’t have much time on my hands, I stuck to the things that I like the best.

Without further ado, here are the things that I July-ke the best (#SryNotSry for the pun).

Two Cents: Pixi x Glamourbox June 2016

For the longest time, I have wanted to try items from Pixi. Almost all of the beauty b/vloggers that I’ve been following are raving about their products, most especially for their skincare line. Imagine my excitement when I found out that for June, Glamourbox will contain all Pixi items. The box was priced at PhP 1,270 but the total price of all the items inside are at PhP 3,349(!!). The contents of the box were a mystery at the time, which just added to my excitement! I purchased it back in June (waaay before my Finish 5, mind you ;p) and they released it at the end of the month. I guess I’m one of the first few who’s already received the box.

So… join me in my first ever Glamourbox unboxing. 🙂

Lipstick Lab: A Shade Called Regina

img_20160122_104326.jpg

Lipstick Lab is a gallery of the author’s lipstick mix discoveries. It’s a showcase, of some sort, for her love of math, colors, and lipstick

Since the start of the year, I’ve been constantly reaching for nude colors for my lips. Gone were the days where I’d sport a bold lip color… Maybe it’s age or maybe I’m just settling into what I think looks good on me :3

Today’s mix is called Regina because it’s dark and sultry and well, I’ve been watching reruns of Once Upon A Time and y’all know how I usually gravitate towards villains!

Makeup Stash: KathleenLights x Ofra Miami Fever

Happy new year everybody! *confetti*

I know I’ve been AWOL from this blog for quite some time, but that’s because I’ve bathed into this wonderful thing called ze holidays. If you’re single and already think that the holidays is such a busy time of the year, try being a mom and you’ll find it even crazier! But it’s all fun, our little boy definitely enjoyed the long break wiz mommeh and daddeh.

Err, okay, back to beauty blogging! I’m going to start off this year with one of my favorites from 2015 — Miami Fever. If you don’t know yet, Kathleen Lights collaborated with Ofra Cosmetics and made this go-hor-geous liquid lipstick.

Two Cents: Drugstore Mini Haul

wpid-2015-10-25-08.41.13-1.jpg.jpeg

Two cents is a beauty blog series that doles out initial thoughts on newly-purchased products.

Don’t they look wonderful? *kilig*

I actually purchased these items about three to four months ago, and they arrived just two weeks ago. One batch is from Amazon, through my co-worker who does a shipment business, and the other batch is from Makeup Inbox PH. Once again, I shopped blindly… well, somewhat blindly, because I did a ton of research about the products prior to ordering them. And by some luck, most of the products work for me. *yay*

Are you ready? Let’s do this!
