U.S. Makeup Haul (May 2017)

Whenever I don't feel like binge-watching my favorite series, I spend a lot of time on Youtube looking for makeup products I'd like to try.

There are several products I've been dying to get my hands on but are not available locally, or are being sold here at higher pricesLuckily, Luigi's brother Renz came home from the US so I was able to score these babies (yay free shipping lels).

Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer (Light Sand) - BEST. BUY. EVER. The moment Kathleen Lights and other beauty bloggers raved about this, I knew in my heart we were meant to be (chos!). I have crazy dark circles under my eyes (konti na lang racoon levels na bes) and they definitely need A LOT of concealing. I really haven't had the time to try this yet (just got it yesterday) but I'm so exciiiiiiiiited! (and I just can't hide it..)

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation (103) - I had the local version of this but it wasn't impressive. My friend bought one from the US and she made me try it. I don't exactly know how different they are but I liked the US formula better so I decided to purchase one. Got it for only $7-$8 I think (half the selling price here in Manila).

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer (Medium/Deep) - I've been obsessed with bronzers lately (must be the summer season). I got this travel size from Too Faced just 'cause I couldn't get myself to buy the full size yet (kuripot kasi talaga ko in real life bes). Hoping this is a game changer.

RCMA No Color Powder - a repurchase since I've had this before. One of the few brands of setting powders that I like (affordable + quality).

Colourpop Ultra Blotted Lip (Slide) and Ultra Matte Lip (Aquarius 2) - no haul is ever complete without Colourpop! The Ultra Blotted Lip is a winnerrrr (as in!)

Physician's Formula Butter Blush in Natural Glow - main reason why I got this is because I'm in love with PF's Butter Bronzer (even though its' smell can be irritating at times lol). I hope this blush is as creamy and buttery as their bronzer (cute ng packaging pa!).

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - technically another repurchase. I remember using this mascara during my younger years (naks ang tanda ko na eew). I still have several tubes of mascara but I saw this on Amazon for only $2!!! So yeah add to cart duh? (lol).

Hopefully I'll get the chance to do in-depth reviews of these products soon (yes omg ang feeling blogger ko na talaga labeet) Taking a break from hoarding makeups for now (ask me again next month lels). Time to save up for travels

Hongkong 2015 (late post)

I was going through Luigi's laptop and realized I haven't uploaded our Hongkong photos. We went there with my family (except my dad and Bianca who were both busy with work I think) and it was Luigi's first out of the country trip. LELS.

For some reason, we didn't feel the need to bring our camera during the trip (what were we thinking?!). All shots were taken from Luigi's trusty Samsung Note 4.

Here's our trip in photos (disclaimer: I was about 10-12kgs heavier back then insaaaaaaaaaane)

Vanity Dresser

If we're Facebook or Snapchat friends, you know that recently the most awesome boyfriend in the world got me a vanity dresser (which he did the design and measurements himself, am I lucky or what? lol). Anyway, I honestly can't remember when or why I became really obsessed interested with makeup. Sure I used to do my makeup back when I was working in a hotel (you face clients on a regular basis so looking presentable was necessary) but I didn't spend so much time (and money) on makeup then. I had a couple of BB creams, blush, and a few lip products.

Luigi noticed how my collection was fast growing (tinalo pa economy ng Pilipinas chos!) and how my kikay stuff were literally everywhere HAHA. I assumed that he got me the dresser because:

  •  Our place was cluttered with brushes and tubes of makeup (nastress na si kuya lol).
  •  He figured it would inspire me to do my makeup (hence I have to be the first one to get up every morning, giving him extra 30 minutes of sleep pppffft).
  •  He just loveeees me that much (yaaas cheeseand is very supportive of my kaartehan.

Whatever his reasons were, I'm just glad he got me this. And it was ridiculously cute how he tried to surprise me with it (hihi). It's a great thing though that he wasn't able to pull off the surprise 100%. It just proved that he's terrible at lying (yeeees always honest lol).
Pardon the mess =)))))))
Moving forward, I now plan to share my random beauty hauls and makeup musings (wow lumelegit blogger ang peg hahaha). Time to watch more Youtube tutorials and read beauty blogs since I'm FAAAARR from being an expert when it comes to beauty/makeup. Hoping I can finally drag my ass to attend makeup classes/workshops soon. We'll see. But for now, here's to getting more makeup and enjoying my dresser yaaaaaaaaaaas!
