Natasha Beauty: Mascara Duo!~

image

Good day people!!! Today’s review is something sent by Ms. Kat <3 this particular Mascara Duo was included in the Natasha Beauty Package I got last July ^-^

image

Natasha Beauty Mascara Duo BLACK

Get an excellent definition of longer, fuller lashes with the Natasha Beauty Mascara Duo! It curls, lengthens, volumizes, gives a dramatic length and a complete 3D effect on your eyes. It has two functions on both ends: primer and mascara.

image

This product as the name suggests is a 2 in 1 product, with dual tips!

image

Ingredients^ :) Their Lash Primer has methyl paraben and propyl paraben @.@ boohuhu

image

The Nutrilash Mascara on the other hand has a long list of ingredients but I see no paraben here :)

image

The design is really pretty <3 with silver butterflies and flowers adorning the caps :)

image

Though it would have been nicer if they included indicators on which tip is the mascara and the primer side, like with what they did on their Lip Duo~

image

The Lash Primer^ is as white as snow! hihihi Lash primers are used to hold mascara better and to give a more volumized lash look.

image

The mascara brush looks rather intimidating and big, but I think the formula of the mascara is rather nice as it did not clump that much, ohh~ but it does have a strong scent -.-

image

You apply the mascara primer first then when it is dry, apply a coating of mascara next :)

Holika Holika: NOW IN THE PHILIPPINES! Chapter Two~

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! I’m back with Chapter Two :) (Here’s Chapter One)  And in this post, I will share to you the interior and all the CUTE WHIMSICAL products that Holika Holika Ph has to offer :D :)

image

The boutique is located on the second floor of SM Fairview, right infront of Uniqlo and beside SM Department store.

image

The boutique is overflowing with different shades of violet! Which was far from what I have imagined!~

image

Oh and it was just so delightful to see Park Shin Hye in a beauty ad again <3

image

Omo XD I love taking photos with standees! Here’s another one with Jung Il-Woo! :D

image

The store blessing happened at around 11 am in the morning :)

image

image

With fellow bloggers each holding a candle stick :)

image

Then shortly after the store was officially opened to the public! :D

image

We were given these cherries to eat while inside the store! OMO THESE WERE GOOD! Does not taste like the normal cherries at all!

image

Ok this is the interior that I kinda expected :)) A Holika Holika store in Korea kekeke It looks so ‘witch craft~y’ and whimsical <3

image

And the store here was mostly decorated with butterflies and in a purple color scheme~

image

Well I could still feel some whimsical touches here and there :)

image

I especially loved their use of bent metal sheets for their labels :D

image

And look at that ceiling design! :D Awesome <3

image

Mrs. Belinda explained that the store was designed with butterflies all over because they wanted to instill metamorphosis. A beauty transformation!

image

Oh and a Jung-Il Woo fan would be delighted to see his photos on the shelves :D

image

Cute shopping baskets :D hihihi

image

And their islands were in this oddly designed counter face that reminded me of purple marshmallows :))

image

I’d say that they arranged the items and products really well! The makeup products on one side, skincare lines on the other, nail polishes, eye makes and face bases, were also grouped together so it was not hard figuring out which ones are for which. Plus almost 90 percent of the products had their corresponding English description and price! So kudos to that!

image

Here’s Mr. Jonel (of http://www.joneluy.com/ the awesome man who sent the invite and who gave the best blogger treatment!) introducing the lovely Mrs. Belinda Valentino, the President of Anibela Corporation and master franchisor of Holika Holika in the Philippines.

image

She gave a brief yet informative talk about Holika Holika, what the brand is, why the interior is designed like so, and the products that were of highlight!

Package Received: Natasha Beauty!~

image

Last week I received a package and to my surprise it was the package from Natasha Beauty :)

image

I like their tag line: Make-up for the Filipina ohh~ Filipino pride! To be honest, this is actually my first time to see Natasha cosmetics so I didn’t know what to expect! (I always see their stores selling clothes and shoes but never makeup)

image

The tiny package was loaded! :) I was wondering what the boxes contain and the first thing that came to mind were lipsticks~~

Royale Beauty: Kojic Papaya Soap!~

image

Kung Hei Fat Choi!!~ How did you celebrate Chinese New Year?~ I hope you all had your fair share of tikoy (^.^)/

Today’s product review is something sent to me by The Beauty Bag about a month ago :>

image

Awarded Superbrands Philippines’ Choice!

Royale Beauty Kojic Papaya Soap moisturizes and lightens the skin, has mild peeling effect.

Kojic Acid is really popular now! It is derived from mushrooms and other plants that will make skin whiter with continued use~ Then there is papaya! The pulp from the papaya can help prevent wrinkling and as we all know (yes ever since papaya soaps became such a huge hit) whitens skin! So this particular product has 2 powerful whitening ingredients combined! Kojic and Papaya~

image

I love how they packaged this! All the needed information are written on the packaging!! Including the date of manufacture, date of expiry, where it was made, net. weight and ingredients!

image

They really gave a lot of thought into the packaging! It’s super nicely packaged :>

image

Pull the tab to get the soap :> And you’ll then smell the nice scent! <3 It smells like papaya + something I can’t explain (maybe the kojic is that something)

image

Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Cocodithanolamide, Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Lactate, Kojic Acid, Papaya Extract, Yellow Iron Oxide, Red Iron Oxide, Perfume.

Vitress Hair Solutions: Hair Repair Cuticle Coat!

image

Have beautiful hair everyday :> Currently, I think this is the longest I’ve grown my hair! Before, I always had short Geum Jandi Style hair cuts cause it was such a breeze to wake up to, get ready and go to school with! But now I have longer hair~ It needs more care!!! <3 (Plus the fact that I always have hair color on XD)

image

In the rushing mornings of weekdays, sometimes I forget to condition my hair @.@ And whenever I forget, my hair gets unruly and less manageable!!!! Not smooth at all!

image

So I decided to give this a try! What reeled me in like a fish is that it RESTORES DAMAGED HAIR which I think I currently have cause of constant hair coloring…
