Suesh and Inglot at G5

Yesterday, after book hauling with a good friend, I decided to do a quick visit at Glorietta 5 after months of not stepping in there because of Glorietta 1 and 2’s re-opening. It was a toy/comic store that I wanted to check out after hearing about it a few months ago. Then I read the other night of Inglot’s store opening here in Makati!

I don’t own a single Inglot product but I’ve been wanting to try it because of other beauty bloggers who use and ♥ it. They’re opening the store this November. Yipee!

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.

So I Went Clinique Shopping…

I accompanied Shabby at Rustan’s Makati today to check if Clinique had the Black Honey lip balm(?), at the same time, I was looking around for a liquid foundation that will suit my current skin color. So we were looking around other brands but when we got to the Clinique bar (is that what they’re called? Or just kiosk? stall? … uh, area? lol), I started checking out the lipsticks and balms as well. Then, I finally gave in to getting a foundation-fitting to find the right shade and kind of foundation meant for my skin type.

Urban Decay Spring 2012 Collection

Urban Decay’s releases this spring are permanent, so I guess there’s no need to rush when you want some, if not all, of these. 🙂

24/7 Concealer Pencil in CIA, DEA, FBI, NSA, ATF, DOD, KGB, M16

The last four are their new shades. They’re shades for the brown and tan skin. I may need one of those especially after beach fun times. 😛


Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Apocalypse


Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Lovechild

Love Child is a pale baby pink. I like the color and I usually like that shade, but I think I can find a lot of dupes of it.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Topaz Collection for Spring 2012

The collection consists of:
Pure Color Sensuous Rouge Lip Color in Sultry Caramel, Sensuous Nude, and Sublime Nectar
Pure Color Five Color Topaz Mosaic eyeshadow palette
Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Topaz Chameleon
Pure Color Gloss in Citron Kiss
Pure Color Intense Kajal Eye Crayon in Dramatic Black and Dramatic Teal
Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Teal Topaz

I love the color of Dramatic Teal. I have read some blogs on this collection and Topaz Chameleon is getting good reviews. I think I want that. :3 Because I lack a highlighter and bronzer in my makeup stash. Topaz Chameleon makes a great of both. 😀 Citron Kiss is as tempting as the aforesaid. I have yet to see if this collection is/will be available locally.

Clinique Almost Lipstick for Spring 2012

I read these are great MLBBs and they moisturize very well too. Someday I’ll own one at least Black Honey. XD Black Honey reminds me of one of my tinted Lip Smackers from way way way back.
