Etude House Dr. Lash Ampule Long and Volume Short Review

Hi everyone! Wow, is it Thursday already? How's your week going so far? I had an unfortunate start this week, that is why I haven't been motivated to blog for the past few days. But don't worry, its nothing majorly depressing, just an important lesson on handling personal matters properly. I'm wiser now. :)

Moving on to the subject of this post, I know I promised to post the Etude House Lash Ampule review last week but, the effect was really hard to see (if ever theres any) so I gave it another week to prove itself. 

Here it is in its original packaging:

Shu Uemura Hard Formula [Hard 6] Seal Brown 02 Eyebrow Pencil

I've found another HG item lovelies! We all know that eyebrows frame the face, thats why I decided to "invest" in a highly raved eyebrow pencil from Shu Uemura. After I saw how effortlessly the MUA filled in the gaps in my brows when I had a makeup session recently, I just blurted it out: I want one please! ^_^

 There are two kinds of the hard formula pencils, I believe they're called hard 6 and hard 9 respectively. MUA recommended hard 6 to me because it can be easily sharpened with a regular eyeliner sharpener after I told him I didn't want to bother going back to the store every time the pencil needs sharpening (using a sharp knife or a cutter and doing it myself is not even an option for a clumsy gal like me).

Description from Shu Uemura: 
A hard eyebrow pencil used to precisely create and shape the eyebrows. The H6 formula is made with soft lead to draw slightly softer and thicker lines. Unique color pigment releases only when it interacts with the oil in the eyebrow hairs. The result is natural, defined brows without the 'drawn on' look. Smudge-proof and long-lasting.

Ekilove Jewelry Haul

It's official, I'm addicted to Ekilove. Eki's creations are just too darn cute to pass up on, so when I got the chance, I just clicked on everything that I liked, because I know that her pieces are limited and they sell out faster than you can say KAWAII! lol XD
my latest loot:
meticulously packed with love ♥

Lunasol Aurorized Eyes 05 Contrast Variation, Glamour Lips S 49 Deep Rose Red

As promised, here are the swatches for the Lunasol products I purchased after the makeover event a week ago. (I know... I'm so behind! haha) Ironically, I didn't get any of the new collection stuff they used on me that day, instead, I went for what I would say my perfect "Autumn look" combination. I'm loving these two! :)

friendly warning: enabling may occur. lol >:)

My Lunasol Makeover + Dinner Date :)

Lunasol's Autumn 2010 collection was launched here in Manila last weekend, and being the big Lunasol fan that I am, I couldn't help but drag Lurvey to check out the Aurorized Eyes shadow quints and the deep red lipstick I saw on ViVi's August issue.

Weekend Updates: Wedding Belle

Hello everyone! Im back and blogging! I'm feeling so much better now, thank you for all your sweet messages and reminders to take my meds, vitamins and LOADS of water! You are all so kind and thoughtful. ^_^

My Monday is off to a great start, I had breakfast bonding with my Mama at Starbucks this morning as she craved their 3 cheese grilled sandwich and signature hot choco with Belgian pegi waffles to go! Hahaha! You can tell I got my sweet tooth from her. Anyway, it was a long weekend for us here in the Philippines as our Muslim brothers/sisters celebrated the end of Ramadan. Let me share with you how I started my long weekend:

On Friday, I attended my dear friend's wedding! Yes, I was still sick that time, but the love and energy from my co-entourage helped me breeze throughout the entire event without feeling the head and body ache. I just hope I didn't infect anyone! If ever I did, I think it would be... BFF Rain! :)

Sick of being sick.

Just a short life update: I'm not really sure what's happening to me nowadays, I get sick more often than I ever did before... I just had tonsillitis last week, and now I caught the flu. and the thing is, my dear friend's wedding is on Friday! I'm a part of her entourage, so staying in is NOT an option. hehe.  I know i'm going to be better by then (the power of positive thinking - it works!) but I need my health back, I have a lot of work to do. :(

I will be back to reading (and commenting on) your posts when my head allows me to stare at my computer for long periods of time without getting throbbing pain. >.<

I promise to take my vitamins everyday now. I need my health back.

be back real soon! 


ps. I just finished reading LC's books, LA Candy and Sweet little lies, they were both entertaining and it was interesting to know what happens behind the scenes of a "reality show", but I couldn't help but feel like I was just watching The Hill's all over again (in my mind at least). Good thing I didn't expect much from it. :D

Etude Doctor Lash Ample CF with 2NE1

So, what happens when pink and princessy cosmetic company Etude House teams up with the charmingly silly gals of 2NE1?
See for yourself! 

Dara still can't act to save her life, fortunately, she has amazingly milky skin to complement her pretty face. She looked wonderful with minimal makeup and her glowy complexion sure is enviable! I don't know about the other girls because their faces were covered with those googly eyes SFX. LOL! I'm sure a lot of girls are interested in the "Etude Doctor Lash Ample" now with the über popular Kpop group 2NE1 hawking the lash serum. I wonder if it is being sold locally. (note to self: go to Etude House this weekend!)

side note: Lurvey and I are feeling so much better now! Its our last day of antibiotics *tummy is dancing in glee* hehe. Again,  thank you everyone for your concern and warm messages!

Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss Swatches

Hello lovelies! Gratitude goes to all of you who have sent well wishes to me & Lurvey, we're getting better now, we started taking antibiotics yesterday and so far, it has helped a lot in making us feel more comfortable, we're definitely looking forward to being fully recovered though. Its such a hassle to be sick! But I'm really glad to know that a lot of you care enough to send us your warm greetings and positive messages. :) 

Anyway, I got to swatch the latest Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss for you ladies! I believe these are Limited Edition so you better get one if you want any or it will haunt you forevah! ;)

As always, the packaging is very CHANEL, classy and elegant. These glosses come with a flat paddle applicator.
