Daily Luxe: Viseart Eyeshadow Palette 01 (Neutral Matte)

Last August, I received a really, really yummy box of chocolates from my good friend Brigitte. It’s quite possibly the best box of chocolates I’ve ever had in a good while!

The most requested and relied upon shadow palette by pro makeup artists. This top selling palette contains 12 perfectly saturated matte shades of highly micronized pigments created for a smooth and even application. PALETTE 01 is a “core” neutral palette for every makeup kit that includes beige, bone, peach, taupe, black, grey, sienna and brown – ideal for shading, highlighting and defining eyes, brows or facial contours. Imported from France. Not tested on animals. No parabens, silicone or mineral oils.

Before anything else — can we take a minute to just stare and swoon over the Viseart Eyeshadow Palette 01 (Neutral Matte)?

Fa la la la LUSH!

It’s officially Christmas at LUSH! I paid their Greenbelt store a visit and more than the bursting and invigorating colours and scents, LUSH greeted me with heaps of gift ideas. Too much is never bad enough, right? :)

This year, LUSH’s gift packs and boxes have taken inspiration from three imaginative areas:

Story Telling
For those who are in love with the tradition of fairy tales, Lush introduces the Story Telling collection. Inspired by the stories of Hans Christian Andersen, this range showcases vibrant colours and exciting gifts all while telling their own traditional Christmas story.

City of Gold
Inspired by a visit to the Beyond El Dorado exhibit at the British Museum, this gift range symbolizes the opulence and decadence from El Dorado, offering a head to toe luxury experience with each gift.

German Techno Nordic Pop
Inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the Christmas theatre spectacle, Slava’s Snowshow, the German Techno Nordic Pop collection is full of the mostly bright, vibrant and fun Christmas gifts!

Ready to see the 37 (!!!) gift packs you can choose from? :) Bring your shopping listsss out!

Christmas at Philosophy

Since I met Philosophy some 10 years back, it’s been one of my go to brands (in the US at least) for my oh so luxe yet reasonably priced bath creams and gels. I couldn’t be happier that they’ve anchored themselves locally as it gives me more room to shop for clothes and shoes vs. hoard on their jumbo shower bottles. :)

Whether you’re new to the brand or otherwise, Fall (mmmm…iced gingerbread cookie duo!!!) and Christmas is a really good time to try their season exclusive scents. This year, these are my favourite flavours variants for the body and lips:

These two hail from a party of 8 holiday exclusives. Here’s the rest of the gang:

The ones that are MIA are equally delish! They’re the Christmas Cookie and Almond Glazed 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath. For a 480ml bottle, these limited edition 3-in-1s cost only Php 1395. They last forever — so long you’re dying to shift to another variant but you promised to empty each bottle muna. :) The lipshines above come in just 1 size (12ml) and they’re sold for Php 695. Such a neat gift to give and receive!

#NoFilter Jetsetter Beauty Must-Haves

Happy Travel Thursday! <3 The wanderlust queen in me couldn’t wait to share with you these jetset friendly beauty candies. While you can apply (photo) filters left and right, nothing beats flawless skin, immaculately groomed brows, and contoured mugs ready for the paparazzi, HD videos even. In lieu of my birthday last August, I whisked myself with 4 good friends to one of my dream holiday destinations and I towed these products with me to (pun intended) cover all bases.

Ready for the beauty stash lowdown? :)

Back by popular demand, MAC Philippines is hosting another MAC Instant Artistry run this November. MAC Instant Artistry is dubbed to be the “the quickest and easiest way to learn makeup skills straight from the pros through interactive videos, one-on-one sessions with our Artists and live demos.”. This run showcases new videos and focus topics that include: Blush with Depth and Dimension, Day to Night Eyes, Refreshing Your Makeup and Sculpted Lips.

You have two more days to make a dash to SM Megamall for a personalized MAC Instant Artistry 411. :) I dropped by last Saturday and I went home with tried and tested techniques to hide my active pimples and dark spots (ughhhh!).

Me sans makeup.
Oh and no, not posting a close up of my FOTD with pimples and all. :P
