My First Sample Room Haul for 2014 + Major Makeup Haul

Sunday, March 09, 2014

     Hello dearies! I'm sure you've been missing my haul post. To tell you honestly, I got so many skin and hair care products waiting in line to be reviewed. I'm very grateful to all the brands who sent me their products to try. Most of the products were sent December last year and some of them are still on my stash untouched :( I'm not complaining but it takes time to review skin care and hair care products. This explains why you haven't seen any haul post from yours truly. The only haul post that I'm consistently doing every month is my Sample Room haul. Sample Room got so many products to offer every month. The latest haul that I got from Sample Room was CalChews and Celeteque. BUT here's an exciting news for makeup lovers- I have a major makeup haul! It's one of the biggest makeup haul that I had since time immemorial. Excited to see what products I purchased from Korean and local brands? Click CONTINUE READING to find out!

Product Review: Nichido Minerals Spot Concealer

Saturday, March 09, 2013

     It's weekend, any plans for today? My apologies for not posting lately, our internet connection is acting up and it's really weird because the internet service provider said that the line is okay. Anyhoo, I mentioned in my previous post that I'm currently testing new products and so far I'm loving them. The first one is Eskinol and this one that I'm going to review is becoming another favorite too.  Aside from the main use of this product as spot concealer, I also use this to brighten my eyes by lining my waterlines. I feel naked whenever I live the house if I didn't apply this. I only sleep for an average of 4-5 hours a day, my eyes always look tired. When I use this product I get compliments that I look fresh and glowing. 

     Will just make the introduction short. I seldom use this product as spot concealer that's why the photos below shows what it looks like when applied to my waterline. And before I forgot, Nichido is a local brand selling affordable makeups and beauty tools.

I've written my name here to see if this shade matches my skin tone.

Used on my waterline, see the difference from the photo above? I applied concealer on my undereye here.
size: 0.04 oz. / 1.14g

price: 139 php (Around $ 3.40+)

place bought: Health and Beauty Section, Sm Fairview

ingredients: Contains Silica, Mica and Zinc Oxide
What I like:
  • Affordable.
  • The texture is okay and blendable if I use this as spot concealer.
  • It's not creamy and I'm surprise that doesn't tug my when concealing small pimples.
  • Covers minor imperfection such as pimple marks and blends well on my skin.
  • It glides smoothly on my waterlines that's why a line or two is enough and the color will already show.
  • Doesn't irritate my eyes, no sting and redness.
  • Stays more than 5 hours on my waterlines.
  • Brightens tired eyes when used as liner on waterlines.
What I don't like:
  • There's a slight pink undertone.
  • Smudges a bit but it's not obvious because of the color.
Will I repurchase? Yes!

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. This product acts as 2 in 1 product that's why I find this affordable. If you still remember my review on Shawill Eyeliner Pencil, you can say that Nichido performs well and the color isn't that obvious unlike white or silver eyeliner pencils. But before using this product on your waterlines, test it first on by lining a very small portion of your waterline and observe if you feel any discomforts. If irritation occurs, better stop using this product as eyeliner and just use it as spot concealer after all this is intended to conceal blemishes.

     Do you use eyeliner to brighten your eye? I highly appreciate your suggestions dearies ^_^
Good Times!~

Sample Room Experience + First Haul for 2013

Saturday, January 19, 2013

     Happy weekend guys! We're fortunate that beauty comes in boxes now. I mean we can try beauty, skin care, wellness products and everything in between with these beauty subscription boxes. I presume that you all know these beauty boxes and had subscribe from them depending on your preferences. It boom last year around August if I'm not mistaken but I'm contemplating which box to get. The price ranges from 400-500 php for a month of subscription,  you'll get different variety of beauty and skin care items, some are samples while others are full-sized ones. 

     I've joined the club now! Finally got my first beauty product sample from Sample Room. I will not get into full details of SR since beauty bloggers already discussed everything on their blogs. I will just share my experience and how considerate they were because my first transaction from them was cancelled and it's my fault. I'm lucky that they'll going to return the first 70 points that I used and wasn't able to pay the shipping on time and totally forgot my order. I used my remaining points to purchase this...
My order comes in this eco friendly paper bag, sealed with SR sticker :)
     This is what I ordered from the remaining points that I have. I have read all the reviews from SR that's why I'm convinced that Gluta-C is effective in terms of lighten dark marks and spots. I'm not sure if I'll use this on my underarm, I'm planning to use a little of this on my freckles and I hope this will work there too.
Gluta-C Skin Whitening Gel- FULL SIZE 20ml
Only 25 points for this one, not bad eh?
     So now to my haul, basically these are products that I already use everyday. Nothing new except the Nichido Mineral Concealer that I will use as an eyeliner for my waterlines and the HBC Keratin Hot Oil Treatment that was always OOS. I was intrigued months ago why among the DIY hair care treatments from HBC this is always OOS. Now I can try this and see what's the rave about :) I also bought this top from a shop near our subdivision selling factory priced clothing from Lee and Jag. Got this for 50& off the tag! But it's to tight for me, I need to lose weight before I can wear this confidently.  The Tony Moly 7 Day Eyebrow Tattoo is the bomb!!! I will muse everything about it on my next post. I really LOVE LOVE it!!! It's the cheaper version of K-Palette (I guess) :D

     And by the way, the cutie bottle cap earrings was a gift from le sister on my birthday. She said she won in a giveaway and this was her prize from Hodge Podge. She's very shy to use this because of the word blogger written on it. Thank you so much Krystal! I'm also shy to wear this even if this is the craft that I love doing. I don't want others to misinterpret me wearing those earrings. But if I'm with blogger friends, I'll wear it because I'm sure they'll understand me 100%

     That's all for now. Drop a comment below if you have tried these products before. Have a great weekend ahead!

Good Times!~
