Trending Tuesday: Satchel Bags

satchel is a bag, often with a strap.The strap is often worn so that it diagonally crosses the body, with the bag hanging on the opposite hip, rather than hanging directly down from the shoulder. They are traditionally used for carrying books.

June Wishlist

Hello June!

I am supposed to blog about my May Favorites, got my pen and notebook, then suddenly I only got two products on my list! So here’s my random list of stuff that I wanted for June!

BEAUTY PRODUCTS

My tinted moisturizer is running low and I’ve read good review about Shu’s Face Architect Foundation

Lately I’ve been skipping on putting on lipstick maybe because of the hot weather so I wanted to get these lip creams from NYX. I love Milan, Istanbul, Amsterdam and Addis Ababa shades!

OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection

Matte nail polishes!

JEWELRY

FEATHER HAIR EXTENSIONS

PANDORA BRACELETS

CLOTHING

That’s a lot!

Hello Montebello!

FRAGILE 😀

Yesterday, I finally received the package from La Petite Confiserie! This made me happy and made my stress go away!

I love how it is carefully packaged in bubble wrap with the order and payment details.

My first CARGO Suede Blush in Montebello!

Tin can packaging is so vintage!

First glimpse: Earth in a blush! (LOL)

I will be doing an in-depth review of this blog soon 😀 Will roadtest this first over the weekend!

My freebie:

Thanks to Caren of La Petite Confiserie 😀

Exit Interview: Covergirl Lashblast Mascara


Covergirl says: Get a blast of bold, volumized lashes – rain or shine! LashBlast’s patented volume-boosting formula and patent-pending brush are designed to max out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big-lash look. In Original, non-waterproof, too!

I bought this because of the raves I’ve read on makeup forums and YouTube reviews I saw. Unfortunately, the price of this drugstore mascara is approximately 600php ($13.00) so I went online and found a tube of this on Ebay which is only 395php ($9.00).

The BIG spoolie:

Pros:

  • Volumizing
  • Smudge proof
  • Easy to use
  • One coat is enough
  • Packaging is soo trendy (brights? :D)
  • Waterproof
Cons:
  • NONE!
Will I repurchase?
Yes, but not for now, since I wanted to try a few brands first!
