Drugstore Wallflower: Bobbie Cosmetics Retractable Eyebrow Pencil

Bobbie Cosmetics Retractable Eyebrow Pencil in Medium Brown
PHP 119 at Watson's SM The Block
HI! Last week I roamed around malls for some errands and in between I checked out my ever reliable beauty hub, Watson's. I found good finds, but with the few loose change I have I can only spend as much. Screw sembreak. Hahaha.

I was already curious with Bobbie Cosmetics when I saw its cute pink concealer at a Mini Stop store near my place. But since the testers were not accessible (you have to get them from the cashier), I didn't take the chance to buy it. So when I saw a Bobbie Cosmetics counter (with testers, thank goodness), I went straight for it! But instead of the concealer, I ended up taking the eyebrow pencil because it looks like my HG eyebrow product, the Etude House Drawing Eye Brow pencil.

Curious, huh? I was too! Check out this new product after the jump!

EOTD: Easy Pink and Plum

Hello there! It's been three weeks since I last made a post and the obvious reason to that is I was too busy. As much as I wanted to post something, it was the last 2 weeks of the semester, and it was devoted to exams so I had to be on a cycle of reading, chugging down Toffee Nut Latte, more reading, a little bit of sleep, answering exams, a little bit more of sleep, then repeat. I am at the end of this 2-week tunnel, and I'm just glad that my brain is still in one piece. I spent my recent days playing with my dog, reading novels (I've finished The Selection Series and Something Borrowed/Something Blue Series in a week), and basically just lying around. Now that I'm recharged and relaxed, I'm ready to post stuff.

I still managed to play with makeup in between though, as it was a way for me to cope up with the stress that I was in. This time I used colors that I haven't really used when going out, but given this autumn-like vibe of a weather, I might wear this out real, real soon.

Outlet Store for the Girly Ones: Beauty Scents Paseo de Santa Rosa

So last weekend me and my siblings went out and played at Paseo de Santa Rosa, and I took a side trip to Beauty Scents to buy another bottle of the ZA moisturizer I was raving about last week. Beauty Scents is actually an outlet store devoted to beauty products, the first of its kind in the country, I bet. And where else would you find it other than the ultimate place for outlet store shopping, Paseo de Santa Rosa?

Beauty stuff in an outlet store? Curious? Get a sneak peak of what's in store in this delightful place after the jump! ;)

LipsWatch: Fanny Serrano Luscious Lipstick in Creamy Fudge

Fanny Serrano Luscious Lipstick in Creamy Fudge
PHP 299
at The SM Store Beauty Section
This is my first post to feature a lipstick, so let me say a few words of apology: I'm sorry because I suck in describing color. But because I really, really want to feature this, I will bravely tread the waters of the world of lip swatches.

To compensate for my poverty of words, I made sure that the pics will be as true representations of the color as it can be in real life.

Moving on...

When it comes to lipsticks, the first thing that makes me fall in love with it will be its color, and then its finish. And then its lasting power. But I don't usually scrutinize lipsticks in terms of its feel on my lips - whether they feel heavy, or if it feels drying, or if it's too wet. And in the case of this lippie from Fanny, the way I fell in love with it was in reverse order - I loved how creamy and moisturizing it felt on my lips first before I got to appreciate its color. This is serious good stuff.

Check out this lippie after the jump!

Quick FX No-Shine Mattifier
PHP 49 at Watson's

If you wear makeup and have an oily skin like moi, for sure this sachet of gold will make your head turn. Big white letters saying No-Shine on it is enough to make me pick it up.

I was also curious with the words, "mattifier" and "matte wax". I mean, having wax in that packaging almost made me feel that it was meant for the hair! Hahaha. So yeah, needless to say, this product intrigued me. And I haven't been intrigued so much in a long time.

More on this oily-skin must-have after the jump! ;)
