A little bird told me that my favorite local spot cleaning, disinfecting solution for brushes is soon going for a price increase from Php395 to Php595 this August. You’ve got today and tomorrow to still get it at Php395. It’s so satisfying to see how two spritzes of this on tissue and two on the brush plus some swirl action draws out the grime for in-between minty fresh cleaning.
This is the best mid-range price dupe I’ve found so far for Make Up For Ever’s brush cleaning spray with tea tree. Go to the FB page JC Super Clean Solutions FB here or politely contact Krissy at 09998870362 for direct orders.
Years ago I didn’t like the original formula of this now updated moisturizer when I first tried it…it was kinda okay, but it felt heavy and even slightly greasy on my skin before…and BEFORE, it gave me a mild allergic reaction. The big news that has circled the globe is that Clinique bravely took their well-loved Dramatically Different Moisturizer and gave it a + symbol…indicative of a well-researched reformulation. Big, brave move.
For the DD moisturizer devotees Clinique have kindly kept the consistency and appearance on application the same but have now introduced a swig of advanced botanicals + (Hello!) hyaluronic acid. After practically a decade since my first encounter with this moisturizer Clinique PH sent me an exclusive lab sample last week. Guess what…I didn’t expect it to be what it now is, which is dramatically incredible, my skin can breathe. I only need short of a peasize dot for the whole face and thanks to the hyaluronic acid I instantly felt the non-greasy boost of hydration FROM MORNING TO NIGHT TO THE NEXT MORNING, I did cleanse mind you but I felt the hydration hanging on like crazy just from just 1 application…the finish also feels like a great primer for makeup. The new DD Moisturizer + dries matte to the touch after 15-20mins but you still feel supple hydration across the skin surface the whole day. Both mom and I road tested it and agreed. It offers light, long wearing hydration and it’s fragrance free. I absolutely positively like this. It’s a no brainer choice if you prefer a high end moisturizer and if you’re one of those like me who’d rather not fiddle with a hyaluronic step before moisturizer on certain days this kills 2 birds with 1 stone. Good job, Clinique! Um, I’ll edit in the price later today.
Just wanted to share with you a Mother’s Day pick and what I did with it This was more of a side gift for Mom, my main gift was a bag. I spotted this chic bamboo tabletop mirror in the window display of Make Room…I was walking fast and took several steps back. It caught my eye and it just happened to be on sale at 25% off from Php595, so it ended up beig just Php446.00. This isn’t my main gift and I decided to use it creatively to present the more expensive gift. For that purpose in itself the price was okay and I knew this was good because now I want one, too LOL. Prices on mother’s day gifts don’t matter by the way, that’s relative to where we are all at. What matters is you give straight from the heart and give her something you know will brighten her day.
The mirrror comes in a box with 3 parts that are really easy to assemble, the bamboo base, the stainless stem and the mirror with the joint behind it which you screw or twist onto the stem. If you’re wondering about the lipsticks I used to personalize it just for today I used the Maybelline ColorSensational lipsticks I blogged about a few weeks ago…easily wiped off with tissue.
You’ll need a simple screwdriver to attach the base to the stem, I did it myself. I personally think it would have been nicer as an oval or better yet a circle but it still looks great. You can adjust the tilt and rotate it left or right! You may have to spritz the joint with WD40 though to make it move easier. Anyhoo enough material talk for now, it’s time to let our mom indulge in our hugs and kisses plus time, prayer, and attention. I pray God blesses each of your moms and don’t forget to make them feel special not just today but everyday. If you are a Mom, I praise you today…if you feel you aren’t a good one, recognize it but don’t dwell on it, your children don’t just need you deep inside they want you in their lives. Begin today! We’re all works in progress, just don’t wave the WIP flag. God loves you! Have a joyful day!
Close your eyes, wait (doh)…no open them, a moment of silence, a deep breath…now with me in unison say “Whoaa…”
For awhile there I thought I’d gotten over nail polish until I saw these pretty Zoya Pixie dust polishes up on Ebay.PH, yup lokal gals. Gotta gasp. You can also search the close-up feature on these in the blog All Lacquered Up I’m obviously still on a celadon /sea green kick and this just hits the spot with a satisfied sigh.
Zoya Pixie Dust Vespa is a matte, sparkly yet sandy version of YSL’s Jade Imperial. Give me a matte sparkly sand finish any day. These pixie dust polishes are like Boracay sand mixed with color and sparkle pigment once they dry over the nail. BTW these first photos are a little gray because mom’s office windows had blue tint and it was overcast earlier, here’s a better real life color shot from my cousin’s sun filled apartment earlier in the day.
They’re absolutely gorgeous and you can bet I got a nude shade (I got 3…spoiler). These were posted online for Php550 each by EbayPH seller “stuff.in.style” aka “SIS” who also have lots of other beauty things of interest for sale in addition to more shades of this. Dare I say it…NOOO…ok fine…how about Real Techniques Brushes for only Php20 more (Php600 for single brushes + Php60 shipping) than the actual Boots pharmacy price abroad (£9.99 = Php640)? My purchase, 3 Zoya polishes and 1 Real Techniques Expert Face Brush arrived the day after I deposited my payment. I still had a Euro trip hangover as my friend called it because i was not able to relax and take my time in boutiques since we were on tour. I’m glad that online sellers like stuff.in.style aka SiS randomly fill the gap .
