My first ever BDJ box did not disappoint!! They partnered up with Benefit Cosmetics and as to be expected of Benefit, everything looked beautiful. I got super excited to know what’s inside!
The challenge is to use all/some/one of the products for 7 days and give feedback on it. I tried 4 products for a week and this is what I have to say about each one-
Everything was packaged so cute and pretty
They’re Real Mascara (P1300)
Finally got to try the holy grail mascara of many!
> My lashes looked 3x better after just one coat
> You can just apply more to make lashes look thicker and longer
> Looks natural (hence the name) when applied correctly.Color appears kind of gray under the sun.
> Did not smudge after half a day of sweating!
NOT SO GOODS:
> You have to apply it fast because it tends to clump.
> Didn’t smudge but I noticed what appeared like dirt (tiny clumps) from the mascara around my eyes. Idk what you call it, fall out? Very little though!
> Didn’t hold my curl for long.
Benetint & Lollitint (P1,700)
I used this only on lips.
> Buildable color.
> Benetint looks like a really natural cherry lip as if you’re not wearing any tint.
> Sheer (if you’re into that)
> Not shiny/glossy. I applied balm 30 minutes before so it won’t look glossy.
> Does not transfer, non-drying.
NOT SO GOODS:
> I applied a lot (3/4 coats) to get the shade I wanted since only 5 dots of the product is too sheer for me.
> Lollitint is a candy-orchard tint which I don’t usually wear… I think Benetint looks better on medium skin tones.
Fake Up Concealer (P1,600)
It’s for hiding dark circles and diffusing fine lines which I didn’t have when I tried it.
> Brightened up my eyes a little bit.
> Blendable and easy to apply. (Just use fingers in an upward motion)
> Did not cake nor crease for a whole day!
> The white ring around the concealer itself is really moisturizing! Can’t think of a bad thing about it.
Everything was in sample size and I kind of wish that even just one product like the tint or mascara came in the full size. (just wishful thinking though). Here’s some of the products beside an iPhone so you get an idea of the size.
All in all, I really liked my first BDJ Box and so I decided to order the box for July! (;
Order your own box here: www.bdjbox.com
(Each box will be a complete surprise! You won’t know what you purchased until it gets delivered to you.)
Took advantage of the Topshop EOS sale.
Here are some items purchased:
Ridiculously short hot pants.
Love this one! I felt instantly dressed up in it. Bit cropped though.
Double necklace that gets all tangled in a drawer so you should hang it.
It’s in gold. *close up
All items were 50% off! EOS sales are one of my favorite things <3
Dry hair alert! So I was bored this evening and decided to try on Macbarbie07’s hair tutorial hair style # 4. (click on link to watch the easy how-to) My attempt failed and it looked like this, I like it anyway. She did a fish tail while I did a French Braid.
It looks even drier and messier in black and white.
If you love banana cake so much (like me), you would want to know about this one I tried. The pastry boutique is called Jettee’s Kitchen and they sell cookies, cakes(they call it rounds), and cheesecakes. *click on the link to go to the website and view menu
I saw their website while surfing the net last week (Sept. 3,’12) and wanted to try one of their rounds so I ordered online. In ordering, you fill up an order form where you put all needed details including contact numbers, date and time, pick up or delivery.
I picked up my order at Figaro, just outside Rockwell.
You can choose between a Kraft box or silver tin
Banana Walnut Round, P325.00 (they said: Outrageously moist and fragrant using only perfectly ripened bananas (not over ripened), this banana loaf perfection is uniquely made into a round.
> You get roasted California walnuts with every bite
> DELICIOUS! Not too sweet.
> Freshly made +
> Handmade with pure love and attention (accdg. to them heehee)
NOT SO GOODS:
> They said that it serves 3-4 generous slices in a round but I could honestly finish one whole round by myself (Gluttony, I know). But If you easily get full, 2 people can be satisfied with this.
Definitely on of the best Banana cakes around ;)
Aw salamat! promise talaga? haha :) hindi ko na naaupdate yung blog ko huhuhu kakatamad magpicture :))
Here are my top two fairly new favorite rings of the moment
Both rings are from Topshop. I got them for less than a thousand Pesos each since they were on sale. I don’t know how much though for the original price. I’ve been wearing these rings a lot.
I think they look fun and young, I especially love the colors of the Aztec one <3
