What's in my Makeup Bag?

I did a post a few months back of what's inside my Bag/Purse. This time I will be showing you the contents of my makeup bag or What's in my makeup bag.

I'm always intrigued by whats in every beauty blogger's makeup bag. What products they are using and which product is a staple in every girl's makeup bag.

Let me show you mine..

Here is my MAC makeup bag/pouch which I bought 2years ago I think. And here's what inside..

I'm quite surprised with how much stuff it holds! :)

the makeup tools..


L-R: Nars Turkish Delight, Revlon Stay Ablaze, Dior Lip Maximizer, Clarins, MAC Pink Nouvueau, MAC See Sheer, NYX Thalia, Korres Plum Lip Butter

Can you guess my most used product? It's the..
Lancome Kohl pencil
Look at that..cant even recognize it anymore :D

And the non-makeup related products i keep in my makeup bag..

I always carry these 2: Afterbite (itch eraser) and the very useful Oxi Clean Spray Away instant stain remover.

Whats in your makeup bag?

❅Christmas Shopping❅

Done your christmas shopping yet?

As for me, I've been frequenting the malls the past few weeks to get gifts for my godchildren. Yes godchildren! I already have like more than a dozen. Its so hard to find gifts for them as I don't see many of them often. 

And of course no shopping would be complete without getting stuffs for yourself.

Instead of just taking photos of the clothes I got, I wanna make it different this time by wearing some of them. Please excuse the face :P

I ♡ the Zara top
Shown here is the jersey top from Zara (P1,390) and shorts from M)phosis (P1,790)

Another photo wearing the first 2 items and I added the denim jacket from Levis (P3,495)

I also got 2 pairs of capri pants and a pair of shorts. Been looking for the perfect fitting capri pants for some time now and I'm so glad I found them. Kinda reminds me of the Isabel Marant collection where she showcased (sequined capri pants). Though mine are not sequined, i still heart them. Black Capri for P2,090, cream capri P1,980 and shorts for P1790

A cardi from Mango (P1,990)

Levi's denim jacket P3,495

And of course, 2 new lipsticks from MAC :)


I still have a lot of gifts to buy, for my family and friends. 

Do you have gift ideas for family and friends? Please share..

Mission: It's Possible (Project Pan Post #2)

Yay! Another Project Pan Post!!! 

When I decided to join the Project (10) Pan bandwagon, I was unsure if I could really do it. I know how hard it is to empty 10 products, so I decided I'd do 5. It was still a bit hard for me since I dont use the same products all the time. But this project made me do it.

And now, I'm presenting you my November empties..

1. Body Shop Shea Whip Body Lotion- i like that its not greasy, will definitely buy this again.

2. Human Heart Nature Mango & Peppermint Hair Mask- for the price (P79), its definitely worth it. The smell is so great and has no dandruff causing residue.

3. Blistex Lip balm- I cant live without a lipbalm. This is a must for me.

4. L'oreal Power repair- this is a great treatment to your hair. Its smells so great and after the treatment my hair feels so soft. 

5. Dr. Van der Woo Mango Melon Face Mask- this was sent to me by my aunt who lives in the Netherlands. The smell is gorgeous, but i dont like the texture. 

So, there you have it.

I need to take this project pan seriously so I can get rid of the many products I have accumulated.

High & Lows

Good morning!

I'm not sure if you have an idea of what the title is all about. But for some who have reading reading my blog, you may probably get the idea. Yes! its about my little retail therapy :)

I was out for lunch yesterday with my friend. And being the shopaholic that I am, I asked her if we could pass by MAC. As you know I am on the hunt for a plum, brick red or purplish lipstick. I tried on Diva but it was too dark for me. The MUA suggested different dark lipsticks but I did not like all them until he finally suggested a bright pink lipstick-- Lustering, which I actually liked. Unfortunately, it was out of stock :( 

I just hate it when you found a product that you like/love and then its out of stock of discontinued.

Anyways, going back to the title, I purchased some and high end and low end products.

Here they are..

MAC Pro Palette
MAC 266 brush
LA colors lip pencil in Forever Red
LA colors lipstick in 311
Bobbie nailpolish in Bronzer & Weng Weng
L'oreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss

the swatches..

I got the L'oreal Super liner at Php 670 with 15%off. Original price is P895.

I actually liked all the low end products I bought. Its my first time to buy LA Colors and I am quite surprised with the quality. For Php60 each (approx. $1.30) both lipstick and lip pencil are very pigmented, creamy and glides on easily.  My hunt for a plum lipstick stops here! All their products cost only Php60. 

The 2 nail polish from Bobbie (local brand) are also good considering each bottle costs only Php32 (approx $.70 cents).

It just shows that not all low end products are crappy. I would definitely try more products from LA Colors!

What a steal!
