Hauls and More

May Haul

Makeup junkies like me surely knew about the Great Maybelline/Loreal/Revlon sale that happened last month right? Also, SM had its weekend sale so while in the area, I excused myself from my family to go to the beauty section of the department store. My sister was in awe actually. She couldn’t believe I would skip out on an H&M sale in favor of discounted beauty products.

I couldn’t believe it either. Whoa, did I really do that??

But back to the topic, here are the things I bought:

Best of My 2014 Product Round Up

The past year has been amazing. I met people online and offline who are just as addicted to makeup as I am. I, the girl behind her glasses, am extremely thankful to everyone who has taken their time to visit my little corner on the web, liked my posts and commented.

Now, what beauty blog would this be if I don’t list down the most amazing finds I have discovered in 2014? So sit back, relax, grab a cup of tea or hot cocoa, perhaps some biscuits too if you want. Here they are, the best of the best products, in my opinion at least. 😉


Best of 2014 face products


When long hours at work are inevitable and I have to plunge my head on multiple tasks/errands and deadlines, I only trust the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (review) to make my makeup last until late into the night. Or when, you know, there’s no time to reapply my makeup for after-work dinner and drinks. In second place is the Purely Cosmetics Oil Absorb Powder (review). Sometimes, I add a little dusting of it if I feel I’m going to be exposed to a more humid environment. It does help in keeping the oilies away for a few more hours. Continue reading

Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Joli Rêve | Review

Dior Fluid Stick Joli Reve

Hello everyone!

I know I promised I would get the review for the Dior Fluid Stick up soon after I posted about the beauty box I got from Cristina Madara and Shari. You all are probably thinking I forgot about it but worry not, I’m currently on break from work so I got plenty of time to edit photos and write down some reviews.

Let’s get right on to that Fluid Stick, yeah?

Tarte Gives One Magic Wish In Their Deluxe LipSurgence Lip Set

Tarte Magic Wish Deluxe Lip Set

If Tarte were to grant me one wish, I’d ask that the full size version of their LipSurgence lip tint and lip gloss be packaged instead for the Magic Wish Deluxe Lip Set. Without increasing the price, of course. (Two full sized Tarte lip products for $5? I really wish!)

It’s been a quite a while since I’ve had a new nude lip color to wear. Bold shades have pretty much dominated my vanity table lately and it’s not likely to stop soon. But I think I can make room for this duo.

Come click more for my thoughts. Continue reading

Want: Summer Loving Bronzed, Brights and Blues

collage summer 2014

I love the summer season. Take away the heat and humidity, it’s the perfect time to head to the beach and lounge under the sun.

For a make-up addict like moi, it’ s also the time to dive into some bright colors and go gaga over bronzers. Plus, if you’ve noticed some of the summer releases, blue seems to be a particular favorite.

These are my wishlist picks for the summer. Begging my pardon in advance if I somehow make you lust after these too. I just need to flush them out of my system (like that can actually happen! LOL).

  1. Guerlain ‘Terracotta Sun Celebration’ Bronzing Powder
  2. Dior ‘Transatlantique – Vernis’ Nail Enamel and Couture Stickers Duo in Sailor
  3. Guerlain ‘Rouge G de Guerlain Rose’ Lip Color in Rose Grenat
  4. Dior Addict Fluid Sticks in Pandore, Aventure and Wonderland
  5. YSL Summer Eyeshadow Palette
  6. Dior Nude Tan Matte Sun Powder in Amber
  7. Chanel Reflets D’Ete De Chanel Le Vernis in Pink Tonic
  8. Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Cheeky
  9. YSL ‘Baby Doll’ Kiss & Blush
