I recently bought mascara from Mary Kay. Im not really a fan of mascara because I had a bad experience in using one before.But I eventually gave this one a try and I love it! Here are the reasons why…
o Not heavy (Doesn’t really feel like your wearing a mascara)
o They say you need to curl your lashes first before you put on mascara, well I dont. I already have long lashes and I just want to add volume so this one is enough, but if you’re looking for twiggy style lashes then no one’s stopping you :p
o It stays the whole day and doesn’t run or make shadows under the eye.
o It’s waterproof, but it’s easy to remove with soap and water. Like i’ve said before, I had a really bad experience in using waterproof mascara and it’s all because they’re so hard to remove, There are few times when I wake up, my eyes have black spots because of the mascara residue which I thought I had removed already with eye makeup remover and cleanser. But this, I love it so much, it even softens the lashes once you washed it out. It feels really soft like I put a conditioner on my lashes!! and the curls stays up till the next day.
o This is quite expensive, P725
o You can only purchase it thru a Beauty Consultant
I’m not really into foundations but I want to have some on my kit. Currently, I only have 1 foundation (who needs a lot anyway?) which is my Mary Kay Timewise and 1 bb cream from etude house. From what I’ve searched, I think foundation evens out your skin tone. Some of us tend to have darker forehead, or if you have large pores to hide, foundation should help you make it look smooth and even.
I don’t really have an idea on what makes mineral makeup better on the normal makeup. They say that mineral makeup is pure and organic, but I’m not into them. I just wanted to try this one out.
o Reason why I don’t like liquid foundation is because it tends to feel heavy and makes me feel really tired. So I am very happy with this because it feels really light, I feel like I’m not really wearing any foundation and it really looks natural.
o Another reason why I hate wearing foundation is it makes my face oily. My skin condition is normal and I usually get 3% oil on my face throughout the day. This product gave me 5% oil and I don’t think it’s bad (2% oil) compared to those vie tried before.
o It’s worthy-cheap. (P499)
o Packaging. I love that it comes with a pump and not just tube. I am sure that no product would go to waste (a.k.a covers on tubes) cheapskate!
o Its available everywhere
o Has a lot of shades to choose from and from what I can remember; I saw 5 different shades on Maybelline’s tester table.
o So far I have none. I think it’s a good buy and I love it!
*Liquid Foundations are recommended on people who have dry to normal skin.
What I’m wearing (Natural Light, No Edits)
o Maybelline Mineral Foundation
o Maybelline Fresh Berry Blush
o In2it Cranberry Lipstick
o Faceshop Liquid Eyelinerread more
Lipstick is probably the largest on my makeup stash. I am obsessed with them! I have Revlon, Mac, Sephora, Nyx, Mary Kay, Tony Moly etc… I recently bought in2it, a local (I think) drugstore makeup brand. I feel guilty having a lot of lipsticks and I just consumed at least 1/8 of them. So I decided to buy cheap lipstick instead because I know, soon enough I would be tired of using that same color. This is my favorite lipstick as of the moment, Moist Intense In2it Lipstick in Cranberry, and I use it always.
o Packaging. I love the swirls design at the bottom of the tube and it doesn’t really look cheap. It doesn’t have the transparent plastic cover that’s usually the cover of cheap lipsticks.
o With the right application, the color stays unless you eat. If not, it would stain your lip. It’s pigmented.
o It’s cheap! (P379.75)
o I love the color in Cranberry, and they also have a wide selections of colors.
o So, what do I hate about this product? None. I don’t have any high expectations on this brand but it certainly is not waste of money. I think all lipsticks, regardless of the brand, won’t stay on your lips after you eat unless it’s Revlon Colorstay (would blog about this one soon). Coz, even when I use Mac, it still fades away.
TIP: Don’t be shy to try out tester, they’ll be giving you tissue so you can wipe the top layer of the product so it’s more hygienic to use. And also, don’t be too judgmental or cynical on using drugstore makeup products. Coz, people won’t even notice what product you’re using when it’s already on your face. It’s not like it will have some flashing light displaying the brand and most of them a really good so I really encourage you to try them out.read more
Im a big fan of buying coupons especially on things like this. Last February 4, 2012, my boyfriend and I redeemed our CashCashPinoy vouchers:
Only P555 instead of P1,120 for a Manila Ocean Park’s Sun Up Savers!
See the Oceanarium, Fish Spa, Sea lion Show and Jellies Exhibit plus an Entrance to Liquid
Pool and Lounge with a free drink!
This is one side of the dome. Inside you will find different restaurants, tiangge stalls, bump cars, 4D Ride (I love this one!!! It’s P100 for 15 minutes but it’s really fun!), Antartica Trails (Free), Sea-horse carousel and the pixie-something playground.
I love this place but I’m giving this 4 stars mainly because our timing is really bad. Public School students are having their field trip! And we all know how public school field trips are, they consists of all family members + faculty member + the students (of course!) + different sections and I’m not sure if it even includes ALL LEVELS! They were like around 500+ people loitering around! It was stressful! they even loiter inside the rooms!
Oceanarium, Dancing Jellyfish (they’re not really dancing btw), Marine Show and the Fish Spa, I would say my favorite was the Fish Spa. I know it’s the cheapest in all of the package (normal price is P120) but I really love how my feet felt after. I could and I want to spend my whole day just soaking my feet! The least I like was the Dancing Jellyfish. It was boring, not big enough they used mirrors so you’ll have an illusion that they have lots of them. Anyway, I’ll be doing a part by part review on the places we’ve been so please watch out for that posts!
Will I be back? I will be if I’m gonna be with my nephew coz I know he will enjoy this one since he loves fish so much. But I think im gonna wait for another voucher.
I recommend this to people of all ages, Filipino, Foreigners, dates or family trip… This is definitely a fun place! :)
Manila Ocean Park is located in Luneta, Manila, Philippines (Behind the Quirino Grandstand)
