Wish List: DollFace Makeup Palettes

As a newbie makeup addict on a budget, I have been on a mission to find a palette that won't bust a major hole in my wallet. Since I started browsing beauty blogs a lot of women raved about Coastal Scents' range of palettes and colors, not to mention how pigmented they are. And just like them, I went nuts! I wanted to get my hands on those babies! Because you get 10 to 88 eyeshadows! Plus some sets even have built in blushes, concealers, and lip shades! Awesome right?

But as I scoured the world of Multiply shopping (yes I get most of my makeup from Multiply do most Filipinas these days) in search for those who carry Coastal Scents sets, I fell face first onto the DollFace store front! And HOT DANG! They have makeup palettes much like CS, but cheaper! Plus they even have their own brush sets that come with tons of tools on them!

Ellemakeupblog's UD Naked Palette Giveaway!

Okay, I have only started running around the makeup circuit as someone who is trying to establish my own blog. Yes, total noob. And through my browsing, reading, and lemming, I have stumbled upon Ellemakeupblog's UD Naked Palette giveaway! Until July 31, 2011 ONLY!

I have been drooling over the Naked Palette for a while but it's out of my budget at the moment (since I am holding on to my saved up allowance to pay my uncle for online orders :P), and I really hope to win just like the lottery! Or Scott Pilgrim against the 7 Evil Ex-Boyfriends.

So head on to her blog for more details!

Review: OPI in The Thrill of Brazil

I've read about OPI since college from the Allure and Marie Claire magazines I've been buying with part of my allowance. And I was pretty sure that Rustan's in ATC had them on stock judging from the last time I was there. So as soon as my mom had time to go to the mall, I rushed to the OPI shelf and browsed for something I'd like! I wasn't looking for a specific color when I went there, but my eyes instantly trained to the reds. The last red I had was Caronia (a cheap local brand) Tea Rose which had some pink undertones. It was okay, but I wanted something that was "the perfect shade of red", something that doesn't have so much pink in it.

Then I found this!

The Body Shop Olive Body Butter

First review for this blog! :D Been a rainy day for me but still had to run grocery errands with my mom today. Yes, it's a ritual after church whether it be dry or wet season. Then again my motivations to go all changed when I saw that The Body Shop has 30% off on selected items for their members...which included me! And in spite of TBS having their item prices soaring off of the roof (they are SO expensive even on sale!), I was tempted to take a look because of the mere fact that I have a serious love affair with their products since college -- be it their synthetic brushes, Shimmer Waves palette, blush, lotions, and scrubs.

So after doing the groceries, I slipped into the store and got myself this:

First Post! Yay! :)

Okay, first post! :)

And...I hope I get to contribute some great content in here that might be of interest to others. I have a long way to go as opposed to a lot of bloggers who have been active for years, so I'm rearing to keep up...I hope!
