Sparkle TV: My US Beauty Haul!

When you see makeup or skincare products that aren’t available locally, what do you do? Do you purchase from resellers, order online and risk having them shipped, or ask someone who’s traveling to oh-so-kindly buy it for you? Me? I prefer to do the latter. Watch and see what I shopped for!

 

If you guys see anything you like or want me to review any of these goodies on the blog, leave me a comment! And don’t forget to subscribe (www.bit.ly/SparkleSubscribe) to send me some love!

P.S.
Did you see me panic at the 1:13 mark when I thought they sent me the wrong product? LOL! ♥

Sparkle TV: Happy Skin Makeup Kit Unboxing + Giveway!

I got to collaborate with homegrown brand, Happy Skin, and unbox their limited edition Served On A Silver Platter Makeup Kit (P1,999). It’s actually a great starter kit for those who are building their makeup collection and it’s super easy to use, too. Watch the video below for all my tips (and see how you can win one of your own—we’re giving THREE away!).

 
So guys, if you want to win a kit, you know what to do! Just remember to leave a comment on my YouTube channel here, so that I know that you’re joining and tell me why you want to win. Hehe, I forgot to mention that in the video. I’ll announce the winners on May 31, 2016 and will inform them by replying to their comment on my YouTube channel.

Good luck and don’t forget to give me a thumbs-up if you like the video and want to see more unboxings! ♥

#GetLippieTuesday

After reviewing several colors from the Kylie Lip Kit line (read it here), I knew I had to get my very own tube from Ms. Jenner. After all, it’s the hottest beauty buy all over the world now!

It's here! I ordered mine from @duckfaceph.

It’s here! I ordered mine from @duckfaceph on Instagram.

She came highly recommended by fellow lipstick addict and Cosmo.ph’s resident beauty girl, Retty. I usually prefer to buy from the source, but given the frenzy, I decided to just order from a local reseller.

Anyway, enough talking already! Let’s start unboxing!

The infamous box with her trademark lip drips. I was so excited to see what's inside!

The box flips open at the top and her official website is stamped on the flap.

Love it! And I loved getting a peak at her handwriting, too.

So now that I’ve literally shown you my unboxing, can you guess what I ordered? There’s a clue in the previous sentence I just typed! Hehe! And there was something pretty controversial about its packaging, too. Find out what it is (and see if I got a bum order) after the jump! Continue reading

Sparkle TV: Unboxing Benefit’s Do The Hoola Kit

It’s my last video for the year! I launched my sparkly YouTube channel a few months ago without any expectations. I didn’t even make a real lineup or script! My goal was to have fun and just keep sharing all of my “real beauty” tips and tricks with you! And you know what? I think that formula worked!

Cosmo.ph said I was one of the Pinay YouTube Beauty Vloggers to follow! Thank you so much, Team Cosmo!

The article actually came out over a month ago, but I only felt like sharing it with you on the blog now. Hehe, I guess I’m kind of shy that way. But believe me, I was super kilig and did a MAJOR happy dance in the middle of the event when I found out. And it kinda looked like this! LOL!

Anywaaaay, I guess what I really want to say is a big THANK YOU to my sparkly readers for all the love, positivity, support, and for subscribing (click here if you haven’t yet!). And I really hope you’ll like my next video! I noticed that you guys liked my unboxing of Benefit’s 12 Days of Gorgeous Set a lot, so I did another one for their Do The Hoola Kit. There’s a mini makeup tutorial there also, so watch, subscribe, and don’t forget to leave me a thumbs-up!

 
Sending you guys lots of sparkly love over the holidays! And if you haven’t done your Christmas shopping yet, click here to find out where you should go for fab beauty finds! ♥

Sparkle TV: Unboxing Benefit’s 12 Days Of Gorgeous Party Poppers

It’s my very first unboxing video and it’s quite an exciting one—especially since the holidays are just around the corner! Watch!

I really enjoyed getting a taste of all the best-sellers from Benefit (it’s a steal at P2,500 per box for almost P5K worth of samples!). I gotta warn you though—it’ll make you want the full-sized products. In fact…

I ended up getting this! And the full-sized one is even better because it comes with a soft sponge for blending.

This is my fifth YouTube video so far (send me some love and subscribe here please!) and I’m learning so much already. For this video, I actually learned from my mistakes. For example… Continue reading
