It's Skin Lady-holic Lipstick

Below is the only information I got for this via this seller:


After the Lady-holic BB cream thing, I kinda steered away from the Lady-holic line since it was kind of a let down.

But the price tag for this lipstick from Han Ryu was so very tempting and I really couldn't resist.

I decided to get two colors from whatever she had on stock. My choices were #2 and #5 which are Cherry Rose and Enamel Pink respectively.



As you can see, the packaging is adorable (and this is one of the reasons why Han Ryu decided to get these for her shop, aside from the price).




You have this ribbon in the end wherein you pull the lipstick from the cap. You may use as is or insert the tube in the cap again to make it grip longer as shown below:


Again I got 2 colors, #2 Cherry Rose and #5 Enamel Pink.

Cherry Rose is a subtle red color which makes you feel like it's your natural lip color only better. Hahaha.



Aside from the swatch I have not tried this yet so I'm not sure how long it lasts.

As for #5 Enamel Pink I was thinking that it was on the reddish pink side; however, it's actually purplish in real life.



Applicationwise, this lipstick glides on smoothly and one swipe was all it took to show color (for me anyways). It settles on the lines, though so moisturize (and scrub) first.

Like the typical lipstick, this one last for about 2-3 hours and then you have reapply. I don't think it's a super bad thing. Lipsticks are usually like that anyways.

Verdict: 3.5/5. You may try it if you wish, it's worth a shot. Price tag is win.

I got my tubes of It's Skin Ladyholic lipstick from Han Ryu for only P185 each (around $3-4).

As of 09/07/13, she currently has stocks of some colors. Check out her Facebook page and inquire about what she has.

Social life? What is that?

Lack of posts/updates. So what's new about that?

EXO has been taking a whole lot of time suckage for me. So I'm mostly on Tumblr for now.

However, I have new items that I have ordered and they have been with me for a few weeks now.

I haven't been doing much usage of my make up stuff as we recently suffered with bad weather and when weather does not cooperate you don't give much effort to look nicer since the rain/wind will make you look like a lunatic anyway.

Here's to hoping that I find the groove again. Ciao!

Overexposure


With my usual hiatus and MIA state, I'm kinda happy that I don't get paid to blog. A little cash would be nice, but deadlines not so much.

Like the usual suspect, work been an absolute life and energy vacuum. I would also like to add the fact that our internet connection these last few months was almost always non-existent.

I am still busy with my online shop with my friend P. A bit disappointed that we're having a hard time finding clients though. So that's a bit sad.

We've currently ventured on promoting via Instagram as well, but again, due to the sucky internet, I don't get the chance to see and promote on IG. I am hoping to change that soon, though!

Anyway, while it's almost time EXO's comeback, I have also found the chance to return to Tumblr and see what's happening there.

After going thru Tumblr I honestly realized that I missed editing photos.

I finally own an SLR; however, I still do not assume to be photographer. That's a definite no-no.

The only reason why I bought one was for the focus of the subjects I take pictures of.

Editing has always been what I wanted to do, not to actually take the pictures.

Yeah, I'm weird like that.

And again, since I did miss tweaking with my Photoshop, I edited some new stuff for the shop for my personal satisfaction.

I hope you enjoy them and if you're in the Philippines, maybe I can invite you to come take a look at what we have? Maybe we can provide you with your own one-of-a-kind piece of individuality.

KRISSY.
ROBIN.
JOEY.
BLAKE.
LILA.
For anyone who is interested, our shop can be found HERE.

Read: Afterlife (A Discovery of Vampires #1)

Format: Kindle Edition
  • File Size: 207 KB
  • Sold by: Amazon Digital Services
  • Language: English
  • ASIN: B004ZZM9E6

When Fleur and Louisa are orphaned and forced to stay with their horrible aunt Petiniua their lives are turned upside down. Aunt Petiniua a witch of a woman sends the sisters off to Miss Madisons Academy for girls where they endure physical pain and violence . However Louisa escapes with a dashing magician who happens to be a vampire and leaves Fleur to look after herself . Fleur vowing revenge on Jacques St Cloud leaves Miss Madisons house of horrors and finds herself faced in the midst of a dangerous romance with a dashingly handsome young vampire Daniel. 


I can't remember where I found this book; however, I'm sure it's the cover that drew me in.

The guy looks like a cross between Daniel Radcliffe and Chace Crawford. Sold!

I liked the beginning of the story. The narrator sounded awesome and pretty much reminded me A Series of Unfortunate Events (narration-wise).

I was holding on to my seat and felt butterflies in my tummy when I was reading about Louisa and Jacques and then they disappear.. together with my grasp of understanding the story.

It went downhill after they were thrown out of the school.

I couldn't even feel the connection between Fleur and Daniel. I felt like it was rush.

Err...

Unfortunately, I think  I got the supposed unedited online copy which has a number of typos and whatnots. 

I am hoping to read the next book though just to see what happened to Louisa and Jacques.

Thrifting: Simply By Carlice

Hello, hello lovies!

As always I am way behind my posting due to real life (like always). Boo!

Anyway, I would just like to share with you something else that has been taking over my blog time.

Recently, my friend Paw and I have reopened our online shop.

Reopened because of the flop that is Multiply Philippines. Honestly! You can't access anything there.

I feel really bad for thr shop owners who have paid for their accounts especially if their shop is only located in Multiply. Pfft.

So back to the shop.. Here it is!


We're selling new and thrifted clothes. We try find one of a kind items that you won't see elsewhere.

Here are a few things we're selling from our first album:

Knitted Dress: P330

Authentic Zara Dress: P320

Brand New Denim Shorts: P230

Brand New Mini Skirt: P230
Our shop can be found here:

By the way, we have an ongoing promo and there's only one slot left:


If you're a resident of the Philippines, we hope that you can visit our shop and hopefully become our future clients.

Face Mask of the Day: Nature Republic's Given By Nature Rose Hip Mask Sheet

Aigooo... As always, my apologies for the lack of update. I am currently nursing my health.

Anyhoo, I haven't bought anything new recently as my money goes to my meds instead. However, as I have been a horder, I still have a lot of stuff I have not tried yet and this mask sheet is one of them.

I am currently using it while I'm typing this. LOL.
This mask sheet is sold at Nature Republic boutiques for P65 ($1+).


Per the packet, this is a mask sheet with the active ingredient of rose hip to make your skin firm and smooth.

I was surprised with the mask sheet itself. It felt a bit stiff but it's nearly transparent. I was thinking that this would make it sturdy.

But nooooo...


Can you see the tears? That's what happened when I tried to move it to fit my face.>.< A bit disappointing really.

It smells just like roses but not really empowering. Which is good for me since I am not much of a fan of the smell of roses.

Below is the ingredients list and directions for use if you're interested to know.



And this is how it looks like on me


The formula includes alcohol but I honestly did not feel any stinging. It's surprisingly gentle.

And any part of the mask sheet that actually got in contact with my skin feels dry now meaning it got absorbed already. Woohoo! Even EH mask sheet didn't get dry this fast on me.

This is how the mask sheet looks like after I used it. Lots of tears. Hahahaha.


I hope that it doesn't sound contradictory since I said it did get absorbed by my skin fast but after I removed the mask sheet, my face felt sticky-ish? Hahaha.

I feel like I've applied cream already.

Overall, I like that it was soothing and no redness happened.

I didn't like that the sheet teared easily and heavy after feeling.

Smooth face? Check. Firm skin? Uhmmm.. i need to use this a lot more to say something about skin firming.

It's worth a try.^^

PS the sticky feeling is slowly diminishing.:)8

Haul: Nature Republic

I've been meaning to buy a body lotion for a while now and the one I wanted was from Nature Republic.

Unfortunately, Etude House blinds me from buying elsewhere, so when I remember to drop by NR my budget is already spent at EH. Pfft.

So since Etude House Philippines has yet to release their new Pink card, I decided to visit Nature Republic at The Block.

What is awesome with Nature Republic is that you have their membership card, you will receive a 10% discount on your purchase.

They also have very nice GWPs which are mostly products.

Last time I received an ample sized facial cleanser.

And as much as I love the courtesy GWPs from Etude House, I would like to receive more product freebies to I'd get to know if they suit me or not.

This doesn't stop me from splurging at EH though.

Today I managed to take home the following:


• Breeze In Body Lotion in Asian Garden - P265
• Pretty Tree Autoliner in #1 and #2 - P145 each
• Given By Flower Mask Sheets x3 - P55 each
• Given By Nature Mask Sheet x2 - P55
• Style Shot Matt Wax (for my brother) - P295

For any purchase you will receive 1 sample of Moist Steam Cream. Again, per the SA that's any purchase.

For a minimum of P1,000 spent you will get a packet that includes a Mask Sheet, Emulsion, and the Moist Steam Cream.

For the sample packet, you have the option to choose from 3 packets. The one I got has a Snail Therapy Mask Sheet and The First Emulsion which is meant for whitening.

Another packet has a Mask Sheet with Jang Geun Suk and The First Emulsion, while the other packet has an Aqua Mask Sheet and an Aqua Emulsion.

And until March 31, 2013, for every P2,000 purchase you will get a Flower View Gel Liner.^^

Oohhh and for the Wednesdays of March, you can get a 10% discount on skincare, face, lips, and eye makeup. Beauty Essence card holders will get additional discounts. (Aahhhh! Why did I see this just now????) Purchase a minimum of P1,000 and you get a Panda Zero Waterproof Eyebrow liner.
