I actually got this as a gift from one of my college best friends. She has read my wishlist post and that gave her an idea of what to give me from her Hongkong trip. *Thank you so much, Jewel! 😀 *

BDJ Box Online Shop Purchases and Lovely Gifts from Amazing Friends

Hi! This is going to be a short post featuring the newly added items in my vanity drawer. 😉 It is a combination of my purchases from the BDJ Box Online Shop and some gifts that I got from my sweet friends.

bdj online shop purchases and lovely gifts

I haven’t tried buying products from the BDJ Box website except for their monthly beauty box. However, I was able to gain some reward points since I always visit their website and read their beauty articles. I have been wanting to use them ever since I got eligible to claim for a Php100 discount that I could use when I buy from their online shop. Currently, BDJ Box is holding a Canmake Kawaii Christmas Haul contest in which you have to buy Canmake products from the BDJ Box Online Shop from November 17-30. Then, share a review and snap a selfie using the Canmake products used. Refer to this link for more details. So, it gave me a reason to try buying online. 😀 Here are the products that I got: Canmake Just For Me Essence Rouge in Color 01 Natural Beige and Canmake Cleansing Stick.

Mary Kay Makeup and Skincare Samples

I have been wanting to try Mary Kay products ever since I got hold of their product catalog. That was roughly six months ago, I think. I just never had the chance to try one. Luckily, a friend of mine was able to give me some Mary Kay makeup and skincare samples so I could finally try them out.

Here are all the Mary Kay stuff she gave me. *Thanks Mitch! 😉*

When I bought this lipstick, along with the Za-Cosmetics Impact-Full Eyes Gradation Type in PK271 (Pink Camisole) when they had the Go Full Impact Bundle promo, I really don’t know which shade to get since all of them are really pretty. I just asked which of them is the bestseller. The beauty consultant of Za-Cosmetics in SM Makati gave me this… Ruby Rich! 😀

BDJ Box: Unboxing My August 2014 BDJ Box: Luscious Locks

Yesterday, I got a lovely surprise from BDJ Box. Those who were able to subscribe for the August 2014 BDJ Box: Luscious Locks already got a hint that the products would be all about haircare. Apparently, BDJ Box even gave a much, much, much bigger surprise for 100 lucky Bellas.

When I saw the announcement at the BDJ Box Facebook page, I really got so excited to receive my box to see if I am one of them. A full-sized item? From a trusted skincare brand? What is it?


(picture taken from the BDJ Box Facebook page)

Then… It has been finally revealed! The full-sized item is from Shiseido! I am super duper happy that I got an August Golden Ticket!!! *heart thumping!!!*

At the back of this box’s cover sleeve, it has a picture of the newest product from Shiseido: the Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate! 😀

Here it is!!! 😀 This product alone (priced at Php3,500) made this month’s box super worth it because it has already went way beyond the box’s subscription price. 😉

Of course, even the other items inside the box are worth trying as well. 😀

Sample Room: Colour Collection Lip Perfection Lipstick Review

If you are an avid reader of my blog, you might have already read my review on my first Colour Collection lipstick which I got from the Sample Room website: the Colour Collection Vitamin E Sheer Lipstick in Pinkish Nude. I like it so much that I got so excited when Sample Room released new full-sized lipstick samples from the same brand: the Colour Collection Lip Perfection Lipsticks. Three shades were available in the said website. I chose to get the Colour Collection Lip Perfection Lipstick in Bella.

I actually like the white packaging of this lipstick. It veers away from the usual black-colored packaging making it really unique yet it still looks classy. 😀

Review: Avon Ultra Color Lipstick

If I am going to buy a lipstick, I always look for light or nude colors that are wearable during the day. I don’t really pick bold lip colors because they might not look good on me.

Apparently, BDJ Box gives me the chance to play and experiment by giving me Avon lipsticks that have intense, colorful shades. Haha!

avon ultra lip color3

Product Description (taken from the Avon website):

Vivid, luminous stay-true color feels so luscious on lips, you may never switch. Moisturizing and conditioning formula with Shea Butter, Artic Berry and Vitamin E for an exquisite soft, supple feel. SPF15

If you keep a lot of lipstick tubes, it will be helpful if you can see the actual shade of the lipstick without having to remove its cover, just like those of Avon Ultra Color Lipsticks. 😀

avon ultra lip color2

I like that this lipstick is very pigmented that one swipe could already give you a rich, colorful swatch. Also, this has SPF15. You get a nice lip color and, at the same time, your lips are protected from the sun. The best thing about this product is that I didn’t get chapped lips even if I did not use a lip balm. However, this is not long-wearing so there is a need to reapply particularly after eating or drinking.
