Here’s a video review of my fave beauty finds…this month! Some products I’ve talked about in more detail on the blog (find them here and here) and others I haven’t. It’s only my second time to do a video, so I still get a bit nervous. Eeks! I’m just glad I had more fun filming this time around.
I reviewed five products and also shared plenty of tips and tricks on how to use ’em—didn’t realize I’m so daldal (Filipino word for talkative). Watch and leave me a comment if you like any of the products I mentioned, too. Hope you like the video! ♥
I am on the prowl for a new, to-die-for eyeshadow palette. I’m experiencing makeup in such a new way now that I’m making a big purchase! Here’s what I realized about my buying habits:
1. I really can’t order things online. I need to TRY before I buy.
2. I’m leaning more towards brands that I’ve never experimented with before.
3. I’m very picky. But if it’s a worthy beauty investment, I won’t think twice about snagging it.
Back when I was a beauty editor for glossies, I would always felt guilty about buying makeup. It just didn’t make sense since I had balikbayan boxes filled with samples stashed in the office storage room, under my desk, and even at home. Now that I’m blogging (and in real need of eyeshadows), I decided to just look for something I really want. Fun!
I wasn’t exaggerating about the boxes. Just look at my desk—it’s drowning in products! This photo was taken back when I was Cosmopolitan Philippines’ beauty editor a few years ago. Totally barefaced because I needed a blank canvas to test all the makeup!
Anyway, back to the main point of this post: Urban Decay’s Smoked Eyeshadow Palette (P3,990 at pormada.com). Because I’m VERY late to the Urban Decay game, I kinda want to get something from the brand. I’m choosing between the three Nakeds and this gorgeous, jewel-toned palette.
Urban Decay’s Smoked gives you 10 pretty shades to play around with!
This palette holds a lot of promise. But is it nice enough for me to buy it? Click to find out!
