Product Review: NARS Audacious Lipstick in Michiyo

Monday, September 03, 2018

     I'm a self-confessed lipstick lover but I only have few bullets in my collection. I'm building my lipstick arsenal based on brands that I love over the shades available. I can say that I'm still naive when it comes to bold and bright shades that's why I will only use them on special occasions or when the need to sport a striking shade arise.

     NARS Audacious lipstick is the most expensive lipstick that I have to date. It's almost Php 2,000 a bullet. Though it's expensive, it delivers. This line has 40 beautiful colors that give a luxurious, bold and healthier looking lips with every application. See photos, swatches, and my thoughts on NARS Audacious Lipstick in Michiyo below :)

5 Reasons Why I Highly Recommend Beauty MNL

Thursday, October 01, 2015

     Shopping online is one of the most accessible form of shopping these days as almost everyone is now online. Admit it or not, we are all busy. Even though we have time to drop by our favorite malls and department stores, there are times that we only shop for every day essentials. For beauty aficionado like me who live North of the metro, I find it hard to shop some mid and high end brands that I've been using or would love to try. Because of this dilemma, I've found two solutions to my problem: travel all the way from North to South just to go to the nearest mall carrying the brands I'm looking or find an online shop that carries the brand. NARS and Davines are two brands that's on my beauty wish list and I don't have immediate access to the stores that carries both.

     Fortunately, I've stumbled upon BeautyMNL. It's one of the up-and-coming beauty sites in the country. A major part of BeautyMNL is its Shop, where you can buy various skin care and beauty products and have it delivered to your doorstep within 24 hours. Sounds a truly promising shopping site for all our beauty and skin care needs. I visited the site, browsed their shop, and enjoyed my shopping experience. I was in skin care, makeup, and everything-cosmetics heaven! Scroll down to see what's inside my Beauty MNL haul below :)

5 Reasons Why I Highly Recommend Beauty MNL 
What is Beauty MNL?
     Beauty MNL is an online shop for the best skin care, makeup, tools and other beauty related stuff. It's a one-stop-shop that I highly recommend because they want you to feel your most beautiful. Every. Single. Day. Here are other reasons why in your next beauty shopping online, the best destination is Beauty

1. They have more than 300 brands and counting. There are hard-to-find brands that you can only score at Beauty MNL. Yes, there are other online shops who can offer those but sometimes the question is authenticity. With Beauty MNL, you are sure that you're getting the real product in a very reasonable price.

3. Learn from the gurus. Hello, Liz Lanuzo of The Project Vanity :) Read their stories, get inspiration from their experiences and learn from their beauty advice. So while doing this, you can now assess what products you'll buy at Beauty MNL. It's like having a virtual assistant because they are giving recommendations so you don't need to worry about an impulse buy online.

4. The prices are affordable and reasonable. Shopping at their website is a breeze. No complicated tasks to do while shopping. Just pick a product and place them in your cart. They offer discounted prices too. As for the payment, they offer different modes that are so convenient for online shoppers. Ask me about the shipping? THE FASTEST I've experienced so far! I ordered my items around 10 p.m. and boy they arrived the next day before afternoon. The packaging is simple, with a delivery receipt that's itemized and very easy to understand. For Metro Manila addresses, expect delivery within 24 hours on weekdays (and Monday delivery for weekend orders). Meanwhile, it will take 3-5 working days for the rest of the country.

     Now let's go to my simple haul. These are the products on my wish list that I found in Beauty MNL. I considered three items in my haul not easily accessible so yeah, I can say I found what I need under one roof. I will just say a little information about my haul and will just give full details on my product reviews.

     I've been lusting over NARS cosmetics for more than five years now. When I saw NARS Schiap swatches from beauty bloggers all over the world, I said to myself that I will buy a tube in the future. My dream came true! I wasn't able to buy the shade that I'm lemming but I found another love in NARS Audacious Lipstick in Michiyo :)

     Second that I've been dreaming of all these years is NARS Blush in Orgasm. I saw this blush shade from the makeup kit of celebrities like Lucy Torres. I fell in love with the shade years ago and I said to myself that I will save up to buy a pan in the future. Now, I already have this. Thanks to Beauty MNL :)

     The following beauty products you'll see below are the products that I dubbed as not easily accessible. I can't say it's hard to find because there are online shops who also sell these brands BUT the only problem I always encounter is it's either the shade is out of stock, the product hasn't arrived yet or simply it available in selected shops. First is Naturactor Cover Face Foundation. This shade is always OOS or hard to find, good thing Beauty MNL offers a wide selection of shades. So when I saw the shade 130, I immediately placed it in my shopping cart.

     Another product that I can't find in stores, malls and local online shops is Davines Oi Oil. This is my favorite high-end hair product. When I emptied one bottle, I had a hard time finding a new one as I need to look for selected salons carrying the brand. It took me months to restock on this but to no avail. The only answer is Beauty MNL. I bought a new bottle that will last me a long time!

     And lastly, a new lip balm from Shiseido. I'm not sure if this is available in Shiseido counters. I picked this because I'm running out of lip balm the time I'm shopping at Beauty MNL. Out of curiosity, I bought one. Well, it's something new for me and since the brand is Shiseido no need for me to ask why.

Sample Room Products for April + Another Major Haul :)

Friday, May 02, 2014

     I really love Sample Room! Every time they replenish their stocks, the samples mostly full-sized samples are very promising and interesting. I already made a review of Vidal Sassoon Premium Color Care Series (shampoo and conditioner) and I think this range will be complete with the treatment. So when I accumulated again the points that I used last March after reviewing the products, I immediately grabbed a sample of the hair treatment. I also availed the Celeteque Bacne Spray to test it with hubby's bacne. I swear by Celeteque products. They're from Unilab- one of my tried and tested brand for skin care, health and wellness. To complete my April Sample Room Haul, I availed the Hygienix hand sanitizer. Being an OC mom, I always make sure that my hands and Kenzo's hands are always clean and germ free. I also purchased some beauty essentials and skin care products from different brands. Click CONTINUE READING to see more :)
