MAC Philippines Unveils Betty & Veronica Collection


MAC Philippines Unveils Betty & Veronica Collection

I was an avid fan of Archie Comics during my early years and amassed a great collection of single and double digests. Archie and the gang entertained different generations of my family. The love triangle between Archie, Betty and Veronica have been resolved by now but loyal Betty fans, including me, will not accept the conclusion.

Last night, March 8, 2013, MAC Philippines unveiled the Betty & Veronica collection at the Mall of Asia and we were invited to the event. We were brought back to the 50s with the event’s diner-inspired entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, drinks and, of course, the theme which is the beloved comic book Archie.

DuWop Isla Sirena Rotating Map Palette swatches

makeup

I bought DuWop’s Isla Sirena Rotating Map Palette online after asking Beauty Bar if they will sell it in the Philippines. FYI, Beauty Bar is the distributor of DuWop here. The lady I talked to said they won’t so I decided to buy online instead. It’s not expensive but not really cheap either. I was surprised when I saw how big the palette is. It’s almost as big as a plate. I guess I got my money’s worth.

Review: BRTC Glossy BB Cream

review

review

Bio Remedies Therapeutic Cosmetic (BRTC) is one of the more reputable cosmetic companies in Korea and based on online reviews, they have a lot of fans. Their BB cream line is very popular. I was able to try their “best” BB cream, the BRTC Recover Balm, and I was very impressed. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take photos to make a review post. To make up for that, here is my review of BRTC Glossy BB Cream based on a sample I bought ages ago but only got to try recently. Unfortunately, I think this particular BB cream has been discontinued. I don’t see it in http://www.skinami.co.kr/ nor http://www.brtcstore.com/.

Pro-Tip: Beauty Brand Pronunciation Guide

guide

guide

I’m sure this has happened to you too. You go to a mall and a saleslady comes up to you and asks if you need help with anything. You say you want to try [insert brand name here] and she just looks blankly at you or asks you to repeat the name. Then she realizes that you are referring to [insert brand name here] and subtly mentions the correct pronunciation of the brand while you, on the other hand, want the earth to swallow you whole. There’s no need to feel so embarrassed. Mispronunciation of brand names happens to the best of us, even the richest socialite!

Review: Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing Neo

mascara

This review should have been written last year but alas, my mind is always a-wander. So without further ado, I give you my thoughts on Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing Neo.

mascara

Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing Neo claims that we will have long fluttering lashes when we use it. I read good reviews about the product on the internet so I gave it a try and ordered one online. I am impressed with its packaging which is very luxe and elegant. No wonder gothic lolitas love Majolica Majorca.
