REVIEW: Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner

I've been missing in action for a while. I've been missing in action for a year, and almost forgot the password for this blog. hihi! For those who might be interested to know why, I moved here in Australia  to study in William Angliss. I am currently studying Hospitality and Tourism. Yup, you read that right.
After finishing my degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Southville Foreign University in the Philippines, I decided to study again.  It was actually my parents' idea lol. It was against my will for awhile but turns out, it wasn't a bad idea afterall. School kept me busy and this whole international student thing is kinda new to me. Adapting to the weather in Melbourne, learning how to take the tram, cooking my own food, doing my laundry, cleaning my flat kept me really busy.

So yea, enough blabbering.. Here's my review :)

here's how it looks like. sorry, i forgot to take a picture of the packaging. 

see how thin the lines this eyeliner can make?

under running water.

after rubbing my skin vigorously.

-this product is very accessible. bought this in Coles.
-not so pricey. got this for less than 10 bucks.
-this eyeliner can make very thin lines and can be used to create very bold lines.
-very pigmented.
-lasts for more than 5hrs on my oily lids.

-can't be easily removed by water. I had to use my baby oil to remove this because Cetaphil can't remove the eyeliner.

super worth it!!<3 i think i found my HG eyeliner :)

review: sophie magic pink cream

I've heard a lot about Sophie Magic Pink Cream from girltalk and teentalk for some time which made me want to try it.. But I've forgotten about it since I couldn't find a sophie reseller near me (I'm from bulacan) and the shipping fee is more expensive than the product.. I only remembered about the sophie magic pink cream when I saw Andi Eigenmann has it in her bag.. *i'm not sure if she's an endorser of Sophie*. Since it's cheap and I have nothing to lose, I've decided to get one for myself.

after few seconds of spreading the sophie magic pink cream.

with natural light.

a closer look.

-A little goes a long way.
-Has a long staying power!
-Smashbox o'glow dupe *i don't own one but i've read that this is a good dupe*
-Spotted on Andi's bag. hihi!

-Hard to estimate how much you'll be needing. *the first time i used this, i ended up looking like a tomato*
-Shipping fee may be more expensive than the product unless you have a reseller near you or there's a sophie outlet near you.
-Leaves hard to remove stain on my finger :(

overall: not bad for 70 pesos, right?:)

Andi Eigenmann
isn't she pretty? :)

review: in2it sheer shimmer blush in plum pearl.

Got this blush yesterday just because i hate the feeling of going home without buying anything and my sister said that I shouldn't get this blush because it looks like my elf glow. Instead of following my sister's advice, I decided to get it because we all know that elf glow is a dupe of the famous nars orgasm which up to now is on my wish list :p

Retail Price379php

Weight: 4g

-Very pigmented
-Gives a natural glow
-It has a clear packaging.
-Stays for more than 3 hours on my oily skin.
-Easy to find. (Available in leading department stores)
-Expiration date and manufacturing date is printed on the packaging.

-Container is scratch prone.

Overall, I love this blush!:)
side by side with elf glow

elf glow and in2it sheer shimmer blush looks different. Elf glow is peach with gold glitters and in2it is peachy pink with gold glitters. I really don't know how if it's a nars orgasm dupe because I don't own one. *keeping my fingers crossed*


legally vain train case :)

I've been collecting make ups since december '09. And that time, I wasn't sure if this addiction will last for a long time since I easily get bored with things kaya I didn't prioritize getting myself a train case pero as time goes by, I've realized that this addiction is something that would last a long time. After spending sleepless nights thinking if I should get one and days trying to save money (and failing), cutting down gimmicks and other expenses (which didn't help), after irritating my boyfriend asking for his opinion on what size to get and what color and where to get one, I've decided to purchase from LegallyVain after seeing their train cases in METRO's July Issue. After deciding on which train case to get,  I finally asked my dad to purchase me one. He immediately said yes! Yay! Thanks Daddy! I originally planned to purchase the Diva train case (13 x 9 x 9.5 inches)but a few more hundreds and I'll be able to get the XL train case (13 x 8 x 9 inches) and here comes another dilemma, just 300 pesos more and I'll be able to get the Diva Dresser which is very spacey (16 x 8 x 12.5 inches) and has a mirror plus brush holder! So I texted Eden of LegallyVain to ask for a side by side picture of the Diva train case and Diva dresser.. But I ended up getting the XL because it's made of aluminum and the two is made of veneer plus the XL has a lock which the diva dresser and the diva train case doesn't have.. Okay, enough blabbering, here are the pictures!:D

i am a very sentimental person, i carefully removed that sticker and
decided to keep it just because it's my first train case.
meet holly golightly :) or should i name her audrey?

large legallyvain train case *it has four trays and the XL has three*

her sexy back <3

instructions that came with the train case
filled :)
According to LegallyVain:
-Size: 13 x 8 x 9 inches or 33cm x 20.3cm x 23cm (Very Big)
-big enough to fit 10 coke cans inside, not to mention free space on 3 trays
-Body is made of solid aluminum
-All LEATHER interior for easy clean-up
-3 wide trays
-Bottom compartment can fit 4 wide makeup palettes
-1 side compartment (for upright storage of tall containers or other items like brushes or perfumes)
-1 changeable combination lock

-Interior is made of leather which makes it easier to clean compared to the diva dresser which has a velvet interior.
-Durable because it's aluminum, i dropped this already and it didn't get any dent!
-Theft-proof because of the lock
-Nice designs available


Happy 2nd day, Holly! I'm so loving you!
