Saizen Shopping Spree with Carizza Chua

Hi guys~!
I think it's been a year since my last post but i'm trying to make it up to you guys by sharing my fun shopping spree last saturday with Carizza sponsored by Saizen Ph~!

I've joined the contest and luckily I won third prize (1,000 worth of gift certicicates) :) Yay! Thank you Carizza and Saizen~!

Together with the other winners Krischia and Berylle we had an amazing Japanese shopping spree at Saizen Robinsons Galleria!

Me, Krischia, Berylle and Carizza

I haven't been to Saizen for months due to my hectic work schedule but now to my surprise there are more products and more japanese food which means a lot of haulage and hoarding next pay day :P Yay!

I've been using my Saizen products for years. From the popular Saizen Charcoal Mask to my reliable cloth bags where I store my scrub suit and bento boxes to keep my "baon" at work! to my belts, beanies even my sketchpad and especially their beauty loots and cosmetics all from Japan. 

They have everything you need for just 85 pesos or less! I've now renewed my love affair with Saizen after my shopping and guess what I bought more from the store and will come back for MORE! 

Here are some of the pictures...

Product Review: Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner

Hi~! This is a review of my fave liquid liner: Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner 

This is a felt tip eyeliner and it's very easy to use unlike liquid eyeliners that comes with a thin but flimsy brush. 
This creates the blackest of black lines, thick or thin :) you can do a cat's eye with just a single stroke.
I have my share of eyeliners and a lot of them smudges on me especially on my upper lash line then into my lids. This one doesn't. It's not waterproof but it won't budge unless you take it off at the end of the day. 

TADA! Easy cat's eye line :P though it's not advisable to use on the waterline but it's superior on the upper lash line. 

It's available on Revlon counters nationwide. It's also available in brown. I've purchased this for Php 550. A bit steep for a liner but I do tell you. I had this for a couple of months and the consistency and performance is as good as new. For newbies they have waterproof pencil liners that are easier to apply. 

Overall I love this eyeliner and i'll repurchase once i'm out of it.

Product Review: Tony Moly Berry Trendy Hair Color Cream in 4R Cherry Wine

Hi! Here's another review of a DIY hair color cream from Tony Moly.

It's Tony Moly Berry Trendy Hair Color Cream in 4R Cherry Wine.

Packaging look like this

images from google, at SM Megamall they have all the colors :)

anyways here's my previous hair color I've used Revlon Colorsilk in Strawberry Blonde

then after using the hair color cream...

natural daylight

with flash indoors

after several washes it turned to a ginger red hue but please keep in mind that my hair was lighter so i guess for darker hair gals it'll turn reddish brown. 

The cream is very sweet smelling, it smelled like berries. Though my mother doesn't approve of my reddish hue (I look like a granny daw) but hey I think I'll be able to wear this for a few months. I'm planning to dye my hair black or dark brown after a few months or whenever the roots peek thru.

I bought this for 398 or 378? i'm not sure and I also bought some products like the gel eyeliner maxi volume mascara and other lip products which i'll review soon. I also got some freebies and a membership card. 

I'm so happy that Tony Moly is here now in the Philippines and I'm hoping more korean cosmetics company will try to venture out here in our country.

Here's their Facebook Page: and their online site

I love the overall result and the smell :D Though I'd like to try Bubble Hair Color next time from either Etude House or Liese :)

Till my next review~! Thank you! :D

Product Review: Holika Holika Hello Holika Cat Blush in 01

Hello Hello~! This is my review on the Holika Holika Hello Holika Cat Blush

I've seen reviews online and what attracted me most is the cat design of the blush so here's the product. Sorry for a short review i'll be heading out really soon.

I bought this from my trusted online korean cosmetics seller sister (she's my suki and she's very nice) all of her products are well priced.

Price: Php 785 (sale price)

Now into the product

Without Flash

With Flash

Hand Swatch 

Without the product

Lightly applied blush on cheeks

Staying Power: 4-5 hours on my oily skin, just bb cream without any primer underneath (i bet it'll stay more if you layer it with cream blush/cheek stain then if you apply primer underneath your bb cream or foundation)

Texture: It's not chalky but not buttery either and the shimmer are subtle not glittery like some shimmer blushers.

Usage: You can swirl the blush for a peachy pink color or concentrate on the cat to get more color, you can also use the lighter parts for highlighting.

Overall I love this product because it's cute (the cat design's too pretty) and it's gives off a light peachy sheen to the skin too bad we can only buy through pre-orders.
