I’ve been obsessed with tons of beauty products since I started browsing beauty gurus on YouTube. They’re the biggest enablers, hence, a July overdue post! ;)
I’m one of the loyal users of Evian Facial Spray. I think I started using it way back in college simply because I hate moisturizers. I hate the greasy feeling of lotions and moisturizers so I just use Evian to keep my skin hydrated. However, I think I just felt like I needed to move on from Evian.
I went to The Face Shop and saw their Pure Water Facial Mist, so I felt like this is a good dupe for Evian. After trying this for a week, I felt like I did the right decision. This product is refreshing and moisturizing, especially after being inside the air-conditioned room and your face starts to lose its moisture. Plus, I felt like The Face Shop’s Pure Water Facial Mist gave me more product than Evian.
Next is the Wet n’ Wild Matte Megalast Lipstick in Ravin’ Raisin (Php 199). I’ve wanted to try the violet lipsticks for the longest time. So, I was ecstatic when I found out that The Vanity Zone was selling that color of lipstick. It was darker than MAC Heroine, but quite similar to Revlon Matte Balm in Shameless. It’s longwearing and super pigmented. You have to use a good make up remover to get rid of the lipstick stain.

The Maybelline Hypercurl Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara is one of the original products of Maybelline, but because it was re-introduced and on sale (Php199), I gave that one a shot.
I think the pigmentation is really good. It gave a black tint that helps emphasize the lashes. Plus, it does a good job in lengthening the lashes. It doesn’t offer that much volumizing effect because it clumps so bad. Lastly, I hate the removing part because I have to dreadfully rub off the mascara from my lashes!
Speaking of rubbing off mascaras, this is where Nivea Creme comes. Did you know that this product is not just good at moisturizing your skin, but also acts as a good make up remover? Try it guys! Plus, it’s a lot cheaper.
Last, but definitely not the least (Ugh, I hate using that. But, I did! Hahahaha!), is the Maybelline Baby Lips Color in Berry Crush.
I have a love-hate relationship with this product. Sometimes, it’s a really good balm, and sometimes not. I gave it another shot, and it worked. So, good job Maybelline. Oh! I just noticed I have two Maybelline products for this post.
By the way, I’m looking for: Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks, Eyeko Alexa Chung collection, and Topshop cosmetics here in the Philippines. Kindly leave a comment below if you know where I can purchase some. Thanks! <3
