My Valentine Edit | I. The Day Out

This is late I know, so sorry!  However late it is here!  Happy Valentine’s day, my beloved readers, whether you are attached or not you are loved.   If the tardiness of this post has really taken its toll you can reserve the use of these for any special daytime occasion.  I’ve handpicked some of my current Valentine favorites that I thought would be splendid for a day out and I’ve done a fresh rosy look, too.


Revlon Colorstay Matte & Lacquer Balms – The Kissable Balm range is being integrated with a new name, the Colorburst Balm crayons now also come in two new finishes, matte and lacquer.

Calchews Calcium Soft Chews in Chocolate  – Getting your calcium fix doesn’t have to be boring, chocolate Calchews are my fave because they taste like Tootsie Roll(Note: Not to be consumed like candy.  Take ONCE a day only, also not sugarfree.) Get some here from!

Ellana Pressed Blush Duo in Kitten/Peach Passion – Get rosy pink or pretty in peach with the blush duo I use by Ellana!  Available here with a 5% discount

L’Oreal True Match BB Cream SPF35 PA++ – This BB Cream by L’Oreal leaves a fresh non-sticky radiant finish behind, I didn’t detect any shimmer plus you get decent SPF protection. The only downside is the lady said there was only one shade available locally which more or less matches my MAC NC30-35 skin shade, but in India 3 shades of this are available.

Clinique All About Shadow Duo in Uptown/Downtown – A simple no fuss eyeshadow duo of a nearly white baby pink and a slate grey, the camera didn’t pink up the pink on my eyelids but it made a great all-over lid wash that gave my eyes a fresh boost.

Revlon Lash Potion Mascara(Waterproof) – This has a wand and formula that magically gives you fluttery romantic lashes, no spell required.

Benefit Bathina Fragrant Body Oil  – Seriously, if you want to smell like an “inviting” bombshell this is the delicately pretty scent you should have on.

Aeropostale Live Love and Dream FragranceIf you want a fresh, fruity and bright scent that sort of leans towards that “Jamba Juice” sort of freshness, this is great!

VDL Nail Polish – I love this nail polish range mainly because other than the fact that they have a whole array of shades those luscious lip-shaped bottles are too cute to throw away!

MUJI Travel Lash Curler (clear for personal use)  – I doubted this when I saw it in store, but the saleslady gave me one to try and it worked for me, instant curl without getting pinched at the corners.  It takes a bit of practice but you get big noticeable curl with it and it’s so much more portable. (Note: I don’t recommend it for professional use, it’s great to use on yourself but not to use on someone else.  May work for certain eye shapes better than others, ask to test one before buying)


The only product I didn’t mention is what I used on my brows and I didn’t bother since it was a limited edition Riri pencil by MAC.  The Revlon Colorstay Matte Balm I have on is in the shade Elusive I love that they pack a punch of color and are comfortable to wear.  The new matte and lacquer finishes aren’t as longwearing as the original Revlon Kissable Balm stains but they wear away beautifully and are super quick to retouch.  I didn’t use setting powder but if you’re oily you may want to powder the T-zone or bring blot sheets along.  That’s my Day Out Valentine Edit, would you have added anything?  I didn’t want to overdo the list.  Many of these are in for upcoming individual reviews.  Watch out for those.  Of course to ADD to this Day Out edit my mother suddenly came home with these, if you haven’t noticed these boxes of extra large cut personalized brownies by Cafe Mary Grace are selling fast almost everywhere in the Metro after photos of them spread like wildfire on Instagram a few days ago.

These yummy brownies are suddenly all the rage since people started posted photos of them online and everyone knows how good Cafe Mary Grace’s tiny regular brownies are to begin with.  They’re flying off shelves at Php280 per box.
