What I’m Testing Now!

I have a lot of products that I’m testing out this month…and it’s driving me crazy! Because I don’t know where to start, I thought I’d show you what’s on my lineup. This way, you can leave a comment and decide which ones you want me to review first. The (beauty) power is yours!

First up: L'Oréal La Palette Nude in Rose and Beige (P800 each) and Color Riche Lipsticks (P400 each).

I finally had time to sneak in a mani-pedi. And oh dear lord, I feel like a human again! Haha, pretty colors on my tips and toes just make me feel so happy and confident. (Leave a comment if you agree!)

Flowers In Her Hair by Deborah Lippmann. Had it done at my fave spot—I Do Nails Eastwood!

I was thrilled to see this color on their roster because I’ve been seeing a lot of mint green in the latest S/S 2016 makeup collections. I don’t know if I can apply that color on my lids (like they did here with NARS), so I’m glad I get to incorporate this trendy beauty shade here on my digits.

Today’s Nails: Summer Edition!

I finally had time to get a decent mani yesterday, so I decided to have a little fun!

Isn't this just perfect for summer?

The last time I had nail art done, it was a play on negative space. I’m still not over this nail trend, so I decided to experiment by playing around with more colors this time.

Here's a closer look at my nails. Love, love, love the happy colors!

I had ’em done at I Do Nails Eastwood and it only took about an hour—mostly because I had trouble figuring out the best color combos to use.

Today’s Nails

I dropped by the Rustan’s Beauty Addict event yesterday. It’s like a little beauty fair where you can visit the different brands on counter and get a chance to win a prize (beauty samples) or free makeovers.

Signed with love! This mirror is called the freedom wall where you can write a feel-good note. My message? Keep Sparkling, of course! Each note counts as a P300 pledge for the ICanServe Foundation.

There were all kinds of booths from Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Nars, Clinique…of course, I headed to Phytomer’s hair station first…and then, the Deborah Lippmann nail bar where I got to try this fabulous color from their 80s collection! I was so happy to see the I Do Nails girls handling the booth!

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in She Drives Me Crazy is such a fabulous teal!

Would You Spend P2K On Nail Polish?

I am a fan of Deborah Lippmann and the way she’s revolutionized manicures. In fact, I usually paint my digits with her polish colors (see this, this, and this). Recently, I read that she’s also partnering with Barney’s New York to launch a new line…

This exclusive collection contains 24-karat gold flecks in the polish. The price tag? Only $50!

That’s a pretty hefty price for a bottle of polish, but knowing Ms. Lippmann, the quality will be fabulous. Even the cap is different (normally it’s black) to help distinguish the luxe collection.

But…it’s still not enough to sway me into shelling out nearly P2,000+ for a bottle of polish. Beauty-wise, I’d rather invest that in a good facial or a potent eye cream. Don’t hold me to it though—I just might change my mind after I’ve tried it!

What do you think of Deborah Lippmann’s upcoming collection? Would you spend this much on a bottle of polish? ♥
