What's Inside My Bag and Make-up Kit 2015

First, I'd like to point out that I'm wearing the same sweater from my What's Inside My Bag 2014 in Sydney. Haha! Second, I'd like to thank my bestfriend, Gail for this wonderful gift! I cannot express how much I appreciate this bag, which will now be my staple office bag since I carry a lot in the office like extra jacket, scarf or shoes.

Gail's Christmas gift-Longchamp LM Metal Medium Top Handle Tote Bag- Black
 Inside my bag (L-R): 
metallic burgundy make-up kit
 floral medicine pouch from Krissy
Alcohol
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Cherry Blossom
Tory Burch wallet
Moleskine planner
Youtube ballpen from Google
toxidoki x LeSportsac pouch
Ray-Ban wayfarer
Asian Hospital medical documents
Condo keys with a keychain from Venice
hair tie
 Inside tokidoki x LeSportsac- iPod-yes, I'm still an iPod girl
Inside my floral pouch- lots of meds and Asus powerbank
 Inside my make-up kit:
MAC Studio Fix NC30
pretty compact mirror from my late aunt
Tony Moly eyebrow pencil
MAC liquid eyeliner
MAC concealer NW25
MAC lipliner in Spice
MAC Rebel lipstick
Wet n Wild In the Flesh lipstick
Maybelline Baby lip balm


If you've been following my blog for a while, you'd notice that I tend to stick to make-up that suits my skin, hence, a lot of MAC products. I also tend to use the same things and I rarely buy anything new unless I really need to or if something's broken.  I have new wallets, make-up purses or sunglasses but it wouldn't be truthful if I feature them here and pretend I've been using them. I'm "low maintenance" like that. Char. But seriously, a lot of people ask me how I could afford some of the trips I went to but the truth is, I just really save A LOT. My dad, who's a fantastic businessman told us,  it's not what you earn, it's what you save.

Speaking of savings, if you want the same nice Longchamp bag, contact my bff Gail at 0917 565 66 31. She'll be able to get you a good deal.

Biore Cleansing Oil Review

What it claims: Biore Cleansing Oil effectively dissolves and removes stubborn makeup, including waterproof mascara, while lifting away dirt and impurities. Unlike other cleansing oils, it leaves no greasy film on your face and maintains the skin's natural moisture balance. It does not emulsify upon contact with water, thus maintaining its optimal cleansing performance at all times. Just apply with dry or wet hands and rinse off with water for that clean and fresh feeling!

 Pics below: 1st frame-full make-up with foundation
2nd frame-half of my face with no make-up thanks to Biore, while half still has make-up on.
You can see my shiny half face because of the oil 
-Three pumps of the product were too much for a very thin cotton pad but I needed 4 pumps when I used a  cotton ball. 
-Thoroughly cleanses, one pad was enough to remove layers of foundation, concealer, contour, highlight, eye-make up, eyebrow pencil and eyeliner

Item: Biore Cleansing Oil 150ml (make-up remover)
Price: P299 from PCX Alabang Town Center
Pros:
-Smells fruity
-Packaging is ok, having a pump is a plus
-Value for money compared to Face Shop's Rice Water make-up remover

-Removes water proof make-up
-Works better on flat cotton pads
-Lives up to its promise
-Gentle on the eyes
-Easy to use


Cons:
-Can be a bit greasy to some
-My fingers get really oily
-Sometimes I'm not into the smell
-Can be a bit cheaper because this feels like baby oil

Verdict: I'm still not used to it. To be frank, it just feels like a more expensive fruity baby oil. It does its job well and I could say that this is a good staple if it works for you. Let me finish a whole bottle and if you see this in another haul of mine, then, I did like it. Try it, you might love it more.

November Favourites: Single Haul


I was so tempted to call this "10 years Haul" or another "Tita Haul" but it seems that most of the items here are splurges single women make, hence the odd title. Name aside, I haven't blogged in a while and the thought of writing an entry came after my hospitalization; relaxing on my bed, I chanced upon my own blog and started backreading. I'm honestly elated I blogged a hell lot back then. It felt like I was reading another person's diary. Everything sounded so differently from where I am now. Well, the biggest distinction from before is that for the first time in a while, I'm actually single, hence these "single girl" goodies:

Some of my fave these weeks/months (L-R):
1. Etude House BB Cream 
2. Celeteque Eye cream
3. Elf contouring and blush cream - because I've noticed I'm losing cheekbones
4. Elf bronzer with highlighter
5. Concealers: MAC concealers for the dark circles because shit I'm so stressed and Maybelline Concealers in 01 for highlighting because I need to brighten up my day using beauty products, so sad.
6. Biore make-up remover- I've only used it a bit and I'm ok with it, it still doesn't remove my pained expression.
7. L'Oreal Revitalift night face cream- because we all need a little lifting at night
8. MAC pressed powder NW25- for contour 
9. MAC Studio Fix  NC30 powder foundation- to fix my dying heart 
10. Tony Moly eyebrow pencil is my only bestfriend
11. Wet n Wild lipstick in In The Flesh - this gorgeous color goes well with my MAC Spice lip pencil to give me that kissable lips, because my lips are so unused
12. Maybelline Baby lip balm - the only baby I call nowadays

Zoom in those used concealers
I kid you not, In The Flesh from Wet n Wild is almost the exact same color of my lips. Now imagine it.
Contour, highlight, repeat.

My morning creams actually work well at night.  Boy, Clarins really improved my skin as it should because it was one hell of an expensive pot, juicecolored. I'm also this close to throwing the Lucas' Papaw from OZ to get rid of any OZ product but it's so good eh so, meh.
Thanks to my ex' family for these last gifts. Too bad I won't see his sisters. They were genuinely sweet.

My blonde hair's bestfriend

Lots of trips to the nail salon

So many rings on me and my friends but no one has ACTUALLY 'PUT A RING ON US'

Mr. bean constantly gives me pleasure

This shit's so good. Buy it.

I love my officemate, Ara and this bacon-style tapa

My comfort food: BOX A-BON CHON HONEY CITRUS WITH SEOUL RICE!!!!!!!!!!!
This adorable note from Pam. She's really sweet!

You can't have too many red lippies: NYX, MAC Marilyn Monroe in Charmed, I'm Sure and Scarlet Ibis, MAC Maleficent, Revlon and Sephora

A dash of pink for love. NO.
Ombre roses on my feet from Vans.

It's 8:17PM and I'm still in the office listening to Paramore. That's it for my Haul. Don't mind my hugot ramblings. Just wanted to have some fun. Call me.
