When I saw this photo on the account, my heart literally jumped. I am a self-confessed Origins baby guys. If you’ve been reading my blog, you know Origins is my favorite skincare brand. I’ve used their cleansers, moisturizer and masks. So I checked the date and time and I knew I was available for this event. So now the next thing is to register. I was able to send an email a few hours after the post went up on Instagram. I didn’t really get my hopes up because I thought I saw the post a little too late. And then I received an email from Marielle of Project Vanity team asking to confirm my attendance. YES! Continue reading My Origins Mask Party Experience

Product Empties #1

So I am going to start a series here in my blog called “Product Empties.” The post will be about any makeup or skincare item I use up. I will have a quick review on these items when I finish them. Since I have a lot of stuff, expect a post quarterly or maybe less often than that.  The only stuff that I finish up regularly is skincare so I’d only post if I have enough products to talk about. I hope you find this series useful.

I have 4 product empties for today:

Clinique Airbrush Concealer in Neutral Fair (20.50 USD or approx. 960php). I bought this concealer because of Julia from Blessmybag. I believe we  have the same skintone so I lean towards whatever she uses. She used this as an undereye concealer and it’s actually pretty good at that. The shade I got has a slightly pinky undertone that counteracts dark circles. Would I buy it again? No, just because I’ve used a cheaper alternative (aka Maybelline Fit me in 15 Fair) and it works just as good.

Dior Addict Lip Glow in 001 (33 usd or approx. 1,540 php). This is a very expensive lip balm. “The first universal balm by Dior reacts to the unique chemistry of each woman’s lips to give them a natural flush of custom pink that suits her skin tone. As if revived from within, lips are fresh, full and radiant. “ That’s according to the description box from Dior’s website. During daytime, it’s the first thing I apply in my makeup routine. It’s not too slippery and leaves my lips hydrated and prepped for whatever lip product I’d use that day. At night, I use it before I sleep and when I wake up, I always have plump and moisturized lips. Would I buy it again? No. I got this in a set that I bought in Incheon airport. I thought then I was getting it at a bargain. But then again, it’s lipbalm, Meg. It’s too expensive. 🙁 I get the same results with my Innisfree Lip Treatment and that’s 160php.

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask (17 USD, 50ml or approx. 793php). This thing is the bomb, okay? I really love it. It’s suppose to clear your pores as you leave it on to dry and wash it off your skin. My skin feels super soft every time I use this. I only had a deluxe (but very generous) size of this, 50ml but it really lasts a long time. I’ve used it once a week quite religiously and it lasted me for almost a year. Would I buy it again? YES.

Origins Modern Friction (20usd, 50ml or approx 934php). I love love this facial scrub. I  use it twice a week and it leaves my skin baby soft. This plus charcoal mask combo is seriously my holy grail cleansing combo especially when I am having pesky unwanted breakouts. Would I buy it again? Uhm, I already have a backup waiting to be opened. Hehe.

That’s all I have for this post! Until my next empties <3 That means I need to really start using up my stuff…
