Haul: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable

  Doesn't this look a lot like Clinique's Chubby Stick?  I've been waiting for our local Revlon counters to stock up on their latest lip product, Just Bitten Kissable.  Primarily because I'm intrigued by it and also it is more affordable than a Chubby Stick.  =P  I don't have a Chubby Stick yet... (not sure if I'm going to get one =P) so I can't really compare the two.  The label indicates it is a balm stain and it seems to me this product is a mixture of the stain and balm of the original Revlon Just Bitten.  (Didn't get the original one though because the felt tip marker does not look appealing to me.)

  I got it in the shade "Sweetheart/Valentine" from Watson's (SM City Sucat) at PhP575.  Just want to give a quick shoutout to Revlon's Beauty Advisor, Angelica Besa, who assisted me last Sunday afternoon.  Thank you =)

Makeup Remover Part I: Pond's Cold Cream

  I saw this product a long time ago (around the '90s) and nope it wasn't a female who was using it then =P  It was my cousin, Kuya Arnold.  He was very particular with his skin care routine and each night I'd see him rubbing his face with this white lemon-scented cream.  I had no idea what it was but I know I love it's scent =P (It reminded me so much of Nivea cream in the blue tin can.)

  Kinda forgot about it and life happened.  Later on I learned what it was and what it's for when we started doing our own cold cream in my Pharmacy lab class in college.  

  It dawned on me that there's such a thing as makeup remover.  =P  I used to clean my face with just a bar of soap (had a long time affair with Neko and it was very effective... I wonder if it's still available in the market...)

Skin Care: Eyliplex-2 Eye Lift + Circle Reducer

  Poor diet, lack of sleep, working the graveyard shift and ageing...  I find these are causing me to have dark circles and fine lines under my eyes.  =(

  They weren't really that noticeable before and I didn't really mind.  I usually get away with the coverage I get from my foundation.  But since I started working the night shift for more than two years now, I now look like I aged ten times faster.  And it's because my eyes always looked tired.  My under eyes now look ashy with foundation on.  I know this can be corrected and concealed but I don't want to just cover them up.  I need a permanent solution!!! hehehe =P

Palette: Stila In The Moment Sample Palette

  I got my hands on a sample of Stila In The Moment palette which looks like this:

  It is a folded page of cardboard containing ten of Stila's award-winning eyeshadows.  I apologize for the "bent" look.  This palette came as is and it probably got squished during transit.  But nonetheless, the products inside remained intact.

  Inside, the shadows were protected with a clear plastic but were removed during the review.  The top half contains two of the looks that can be created using the eyeshadows.  I find this useful especially for beginners because these are step by step instructions on how to achieve each look.  The bottom half contains the eyeshadows in sample amounts which I think can last up to 3 applications.
