Reveal the Goddess in YOU...

Body Shop recently released its new make up collection: NOMADIC GODDESS

Featuring the Italian Baked to Last Range, handmade and baked on hot terracotta discs so their pure pigments fuse together for a long lasting finish

I went to Body shop in Powerplant Mall last night to check it out, and I personally liked the bronzer in 01 Golden Bronze, priced at P1,250. Currently, they have an offering of less P200 for these products.

But considering that summer is almost over here in the Philippines, I think its pointless to get one especially because of its shimmery finish. Instead I got the MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Natural in Dark 

Along with this collection is the deodorant....

Also, they offer less P100 for any deodry purchase.

Was thinking of trying out the deodry, but maybe in the coming weeks.

Have you purchased anything from this line?

Coastal Scents Haul

Finally! It's also here! Yey!

The package from my aunt arrived last night which contains the items I've ordered from Coastal Scents!

- Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette
- White Gel Liner
- Assorted Makeup Brushes (11pcs in total)
- Undercover HD foundation sample size (2pcs)

I also got a sample pigment shadow in copper

All these items for only $76!

What items from coastal scents have you ordered and tried?



makeup, makeup, makeup

I cannot contain my excitement and so I wanted to share with you my massive haul! :)

Here in the Philippines, only a few brands are being sold in department stores, drugstores and supermarkets. Although you can find some like E.L.F and covergirl, it will cost you about twice the original price in the website. And so, I decided to order some of them in Ulta, Sally Beauty and E.L.F website, have it delivered to my friend who lives in the US and then have it delivered to me..all in one box!

here they are...
- E.L.F Studio 11 piece brush set
-eyeshadows, lipsticks

Eyeshadows from Rimmel, Covergirl, Revlon & SallyGirl

E.L.F products and items from Sallygirl

I know most of them are drugstore brands, but I love them!

I promised to take care of my hair (because I noticed that my hair is getting dull) so I also ordered some hair products..unfortunately, DHL doesn't accept liquids in the package.. I guess I'll just have to wait til my friend finds someone who will be going to here.

I cannot wait to play with them and experiment..

Eye Makeup #2

Just wanted to share my makeup (eye makeup specifically☺)a few fridays ago. Just found this in may laptop's hard drive.

I've always wanted to try dark/colorful eyeshadows, but I fear that it will not suit me and would look horrible.

I used coastal scents 88 eyeshadow palette

I was contemplating on posting my unedited (edited in the sense that i cropped by eyes) face make up.. but I just don't have the guts..yet.. ya, well maybe in the coming days..

This is my first try....doesn't look bad..i think ☺

What do you think? ☺


A few bits and bobs

Last Monday, after dinner, my sissey and I went to Bonifacio High Street to have coffee at Starbucks. I parked at the other end of the street, where most of the shops are. While walking, I saw Makeup Forever and decided to get the HD powder and concealer palette, unfortunately, both items were still out of stock (this was my 3rd attempt) ☹ 

We also went to a couple of shops and here's what I got...

Lush Mint Julip Lip scrub - 495
I always have dry lips in the morning even if i put on Carmex lip balm before going to bed. I've read a few posts about this lip scrub, and decided why not give it a try.

The Face Shop Blush - 399
I've always wanted to try face shop's cosmetics. They are very affordable, i just don't know if the quality is also good. The blush is a little bit orangey.

Aldo Accessories - 495 each
Chunky coral ring and gold statement necklace (with beach themed pendants). I'm so glad i bought the ring, with my finger size, i always have a hard time getting a ring that fits. My right ring finger size is 4.. a child's size they say..

Lovely lovely accessories from Aldo! Can't wait to wear them!

Addicted to Red


I have this thing about red nailpolishes.. it doesnt have to be super red, but as long as its in the same shade or family, I can deal with it. Every time i go to the nail salon, I always end up choosing the same color of nailpolish.. i think it makes my skin look fairer :D

Anyways, this post is about my attempt to put on red nailpolish by pardon the messy application.  I used 'collistar' Rosso Fiamma 13, a pressie from my sister..

Here's the outcome of my attempt...

I also used Sally Hansen double duty Base and top coat for my base and the Sally hansen No Chip Acrylic top coat which i purchased yesterday with a few more items.. (i'll do a separate post on this)

Will see if this topcoat really does the job..

do you have any tips on how to perfect nailpolish application?

missKC027(Kim) contest entry

Congrats to Kim for her 150th follower.. Isn't it amazing? ❤❤

This is my entry to missKC027(Kim)'s contest:

These are the questions:

1. List 5 go-to-products.

    1. Nars orgasm blush
    2. Bobbi Brown corrector in Light peach
    3. Mac Lightful Ultracharge foundation NC25
    4. Labello pearly shine lipgloss
    5. Mac Hug Me lipstick

2.What is the LEAST important makeup products in your opinion? and why?

    In my opinion, the least important product for me is the eyebrow pencil. why? well for me, i don't use it because there's something about eyebrow pencils that makes me matured looking. This goes for me, but I am sure some people look good when they use eyebrow pencils. Maybe, its not just for me.

Great prizes await the winner..

I really really want to win!

Thank you Kim for being generous to your followers!

Hey there!!

As my very first OFFICIAL post (the first 2 were links to giveaways! ☺) and since this is my blog, thought I'd write sumthing about moi ☺ here it goes...

I am from Manila, Philippines, married but no kids yet. I created this blog 2008, to keep a journal of my ❤ for bags..or maybe just about anything. But i was so lazy to take pictures of my collections and make headings etc and then post it. And aside from that, i dont know how to do it :D

At first, i was only interested in reading blogs about bags. But just recently, my younger sister showed me videos of xteeener in youtube doing makeup tutorials. I started watching it and several other video tutorials and i got hooked. Some of my favorite blogs are:

I got interested with all the bag post and inspired with the makeup tutorials, and now i am planning to enroll at Makeup Forever for some serious makeup lessons ☺☺

And apart from shopping and girly things, I also like cooking for my hubby and of course travelling.. (who doesn't right?)

I will try my best to post anything I ❤ at the moment...
