♕ Review : Buxom Full On Lip Polish ♕

Lip polish, lip gloss, lip plumpers...

We all love that soft and full lips, don't we? 

I know that this product was released a while back and I already have a new set to review but it's still worth sharing! I just love Buxom's Full On Lip Polish and I have to say that it's currently one of my favorite lip products.

The first time I tried these lippies was when I purchased this value set at Sephora for $29 (originally $32), I'm more of a lip gloss person than a lipstick so this was definitely a great deal.

♕ Review : Light In Abox - Makeup Sponge?? ♕

Investing in makeup seems to be a no-brainer these days. There are so many makeup companies and information sources that will just get you on a roll. But not everyone is a makeup enthusiast. While there are a lot of people who are really into makeup, there are still who are hesitant in spending a lot.

Let's have a quick talk about makeup sponges - they've been around for a long time but the release of the Beauty Blender and other cheaper options like the ones from Real Techniques, Nyx and other brands have forever changed the story. These little tear drop shaped sponges expand when soaked in water and are very soft on the skin. Another special feature that sets them apart from the regular sponge is that they do not absorb too much product - which means that a little bit of foundation is supposed to go a long way.

So... the question is - Are you willing to spend between $5 - $20 for a sponge?

If not, then you've probably stumbled upon cheaper options from eBay, Wish and other similar sites. So, out of curiosity I stumbled upon Light In A Box - I actually found this before I found Wish. This site is basically similar to eBay although the products are all cheap dupes from China.

For $4.99 you get four pieces. The next question is - are they worth it??

♕ Shopping : Oh No! My Order Got Declined ♕

You know you got problems when you start crying over makeup... or maybe not!

When you're passionate about something, whether it's collecting stamps or hoarding makeup, you put your heart into it. There's no denying that we can get emotional when things don't go our way or how they're supposed to.

Now that's the case with my Too Faced Funfetti order from HSN last November 9th.

♕ Makeup : Le Colourpop Favorites ♕

Hey Loves ❤

About a year or two ago, my best friend Honey June told me about Colourpop - a really nice yet inexpensive brand that I should try. When I was in the Philippines, I did have some makeup but I didn't really have access to certain brands and this was one of them. Now it's easier to get especially that there are some known makeup groups and shops there that already make it possible.

One of the first things that I had to try as soon as I got here and I instantly fell in love! For less than $10 a piece, oh my gosh it's a steal! If you still haven't heard of Colourpop, you're definitely missing out a lot. The feedback is mainly positive, and of course, like everything else there are a few negative comments. They are pretty known in coming up with really beautiful and pigmented shades. They started out with their Super Shock Eyeshadows and Lippie Stix, which eventually expanded to other products for the eyes, face, brows and lips.
