It’s another month, another year and as usual, here are our favorites. Well, Shabby’s and mine at the least. 😉 Let’s start on Shabby’s list with the…
We’re back with another vlog! Got an unexpected event after a long day at work? Already looking stressed af but no vanity kit with you? Try our makeup hack for quick touch ups or total makeover!
Baggy under-eyes? Loose tummy/arm skin? I know your pain. 🙁 Loose skin knows no age and gender, and darling, you are not alone in worrying about skin tightening.
The world of skin tightening is fraught with adventure, excitement, and triumph for some people. But, if you’re not careful, it can also be full of let downs and disappointments. Basically, you have to know exactly how to treat your skin to get the results that you want from your experience.
I’ll start with the gifts.
Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter
I received these from the exchange gift at Team Aguhon’s Christmas dinner. They came in boxes that can be hung to a Christmas tree. Such a cute idea to instead of placing them under. I already started to use the Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm and it works nice under lipsticks. Lipsticks go smooth and even over it and prevents lip dryness especially from lipsticks that do dry then out.
There’s nothing quite as convenient as online shopping, but just as The Balance has pointed it, it has its ups and downs. Thankfully, beauty items are easier to shop for than apparel. Online makeup shopping can come with its own problems; however, they’re never quite as stressful as finding the perfectly fitted dress or jeans from these digital retailers.
And if you’re ever unhappy with a product or receive the wrong order, most online fashion and beauty aggregators have free returns and exchanges, with e-shops like Pretty Me Philippines disclosing a seven-day return policy while others can range between 14 and 30 day periods. But you want to be as accurate as possible when it comes to your makeup purchases, and while these return policies are perfect for when you get your orders wrong, it’s best to get it right the first time. Any delays in using your beauty products are just an absolute pain for any makeup addicts.
This year, we are trying out video blogging. Check out our first episode below and let us know what you think. 😉
I wanted to publish this before the Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder, but I remembered I haven’t edited this post. 😆
A subtle pop of dewy color for lips and cheeks. Our nourishing tint with safflower, jojoba and sunflower seed oils feels luscious yet lightweight. Fluid-gel formula slips on with ease thanks to a convenient wand applicator that delivers the perfect amount every time. Shake well before applying.
My lips get very dry and flaky after a few days of regular or liquid lipsticks use, so I would eventually need to use lip balms for a few days. But I dislike how my lips look without color and my tinted lip balms dry it too. So when I discovered the Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Black Honey, I became a lip oil convert.
I mentioned in our November-December beauty favorites that the Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder is the best affordable setting powder.
The plastic compact feels slightly sturdy and light. Easy to slip in a purse or vanity kit for touch-ups, but a separate puff or dense powder brush is still needed. The latter works better btw.
Better late than never. 😆
The holiday season is the busiest time of the year. Not only with the Christmas rush of gift shopping and/or get-togethers, but work deadlines too, which is difficult when you’re already feeling the holidays. I didn’t get to switch beauty and skin care products when December came because I was very busy to bother. Besides, almost everything I used in November I ended up liking so much that I didn’t want to switch yet. Even so, there are only a few that I really loved and would consider favorites. I think the same goes for Joiz. 🙂 I’ll begin with hers.
