Love at first delight @_@

I really am a sucker for all things pretty, so imagine my delight when i came across this beauty at Guerlain, it was love at first sight, i knew i wanted to take this pretty baby home. :) But with the Php3,850 (Approx. US $80) price tag, i chose to wait for the BPI Megatent Sale where i got it for Php1,800!!! can you believe it? more than 50% off! i was so happy! ;) Why pay more when you can pay less then buy more? did i confuse you? hahaha!

The Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Cherry Blossom is a light, fresh floral scent which will remind you of spring and summer all year round. If you like fresh, citrusy & floral scents you will like this one. Perfect if you're in need of some refreshing of the visual and olfactory senses. heehee :)

Laneíge Strawberry Yogurt Peeling Gel

I recently bought Laneíge's Strawberry Peeling Gel [2-step dead cell care] because I was intrigued by it and i love how yummy it smells! SA was so nice she gave me lots of samples to try out. :)


Peeling gel kiss hahaha! :)

spread and massage gently (especially if you have sensitive skin)

massage until you see dead skin cells/dirt surfaces/pollutants come up, apparently i had clean hands at the time. :)

I've only used it once for now since i wouldn't want to over exfoliate my skin but i saw a brightening effect and a very clean, smooth and soft feel on my face after washing with lukewarm water, plus the smell is so yummy i had to keep my tongue inside my mouth while massaging my face with the gel. :P LOL! 

I tried it on the boyfriend too and he didn't mind at all! in fact he liked it. A plus for bonding element of the product. hehe :)

I recommend this to the ladies (and gents) who love to exfoliate and who love strawberry scent. I bought this at Laneíge, Trinoma fro Php1,250 (approx. US $27). It comes in a 150ml. bottle, thats a lot of product so i don't think i will repurchase for a long while.

Mail time!

I ♡ opening anything that comes in the mail, who doesn't, right? especially if they're pretty cosmetics! Stuff I ordered from ebay, and have arrived after a month of waiting and im going to share some photos and my short reviews with you. Here goes...


the award for the best bubble wrapper goes to! hahaha! the package on the left contains 1pc. of Paul&Joe Eyegloss and some samples (thank you gooddealer!)

Maquillage Face Creator in 66 (from Shiseido, Powerplant), Face Creator Case and Lip Essence Ex from ebay.

Maquillage Face Creator in 66. Pretty pretty colors! I ♡ this!

Maquillage Lip Essence EX

the nice, flat and  fuzzy applicator makes it easier to apply the product especially on the outer edges of your lips.

Paul & Joe Eye Gloss N in 04 with samples

Its a beautiful, shimmery lavender color.

Kanebo Allie Sunscreen SPF50 PA+++

I bought the 25ml bottle just to try it out, its liquid consistency makes it glide on smoothly and it is not oily nor dry when applied to the face. I like it a lot. I think I will try the Allie whitening sunscreen next.

Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes SV887

swatch in natural daylight

swatch with brighter daylight. hahaha! 

SV887 E/S palette is a very pretty metallic with a touch of pink. At first i thought the pink color was vivid but it wasn't, but its okay because i think the colors compliment one another. I just regret not buying the other colors! i want the pink, violet and blue palettes as well after seeing them on lotuspalace! :)

Thats all for now, i hope you enjoyed reading as much as i have enjoyed making this post! Take care lovelies!

These are just too cute to pass up on! I went to the Shu Uemura store at Powerplant, Rockwell to check if they are selling already but SA said that the Tsumori Chisato Collection won't be out until November. I can't wait to check them out!!! :)

Tsumori Chisato Planet Ribbon Palette,
 3 E/S, 1 Cream liner, 1 Highlighter, 1 Blush, 2 Dual-Ended Applicators

Tsumori Chisato Planet Cat
(I think this palette is more wearable for me.)

Tsumori Chisato for S.U. Rouge Unlimited


Tsumori Chisato for S.U. Gloss Unlimited Mini-Trio Set

(how adorable is that pouch?!)

How do you feel about this collection? Will you be hoarding? ;) Please let me know your thoughts on the color on the palettes, because i think some shades are already visible in my collection. Is it worth buying for the packaging only? Would love to hear/read from you!
