Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? I had a fun and pleasurable one because I got to see and spend some time with my high school classmates/friends when I attended C & M's wedding on Saturday night with lurvey, the bride wore a beautiful dress by no less than Vera Wang, accented with a beaded waist sash by the talented Janna Katipunan who also happens to be the little sister of another high school friend. Gosh that made me feel ancient. lol. Janna's creation added a sweet and sparkly detail to the bride's simple yet romantic Vera Wang pick. Gawrsh, it was pretty! :)
here's our lurveydurvey souvenir photo from the party:
Then on Sunday, lurvey and I had a late lunch date at Arya with our good friend M of Urbanity.ph to comfort him while his ladylove K is in Vietnam ;) It was a persian feast, yummers! :D Overall, it was a lovely weekend for me because I love seeing our friends and catching up on their respective lives, reminisce about our memories when we were still in school and plan our next food trips together. I think its true what they say, friendship develops best over good food! :) oops! no decent pics as we were too busy chatting and eating! hahaha!
As for the beauty part of this post, today i'm going to share some thoughts on Kiss Me Heroine Make's Long & Curl Mascara, this is a japanese drugstore brand. I got it from Sasa (Hong Kong) for HKD59 (approx. $8)
packaging is a regular tube, maroon in color with gold text and feminine details.
the wand is slightly curved and it has a twisted brush which makes application smooth.
If you are looking for a nice drugstore brand mascara which can decently curl and lengthen lashes, I will gladly recommend this next to my HG Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus.
Here's a "with and without" product shot:
(this is why i love mascaras!)
Pretty nice and natural eh?
gives some length
It does not smudge.
It does not clump.
It holds the curl reasonably all day.
Waterproof - no raccoon eyes!
easy to take off (I use Shu Uemura Cleansing oil fresh)
lightweight, natural looking
It may cause irritation to sensitive eyes.
its not available locally
There are some fake products out there at eBay (some bloggers have shared their experience on this)
If you're looking for a mascara with dramatic effects, this is not for you. :)
