I'm being really good right now downsizing hauls and controlling myself that I cannot want another blush or eyeshadow palette. What I really needed was a new brightening moisturizer to replace my now empty Kanebo Blanchir Milky Conditioner - which i loved 'til the last drop.
My puny loot
Estēe Lauder Cyber White EX
Extra Brightening Milky Lotion
got this at Marrionaud, Mall of Asia; tagged price is Php3,300 but I got it for Php3,000 (approx. $63) after discount.
The product is made in UK.
"not all spots are created equal" -
will this milky lotion live up to its promise of brightening and preventing sun spots? I sure hope so!
I must say, this milky lotion is heavily scented compared to the Kanebo Blanchir which smelled like milk and was more pleasant to my olfactory sense. I was afraid my skin would break out with this, but after a few days of using it (day and night), my skin is still clear, just brighter. Hmm, I guess its effectively doing its job so far! :)
But I'm not repurchasing as I find the scent too heavy for a facial moisturizer, I might go back to Blanchir after finishing this.
YSL Rouge Volupte #4 Sweet Honey
Php1,550 at Rustan's Shangri la
One of my favorite lipsticks, YSL Rouge Volupte is very pigmented, plus it has SPF 15 and can I just say it glides on like butter? It does. So smooth and creamy! Sweet Honey is a warm beige shade, really nice color to pair with peach and coral blushers and warm eyeshadows.
Oh and just in case some Manila beautyholics are wondering, yes YSL got extended until further notice, but there are no more stocks arriving (sad!) So if you want to stock up on YSL cosmetics, you still have time. :)
