I haven’t posted an FOTD in a while but I have something exciting in store for you in this post. We had our office Christmas party last Monday and the theme was red carpet glam. We never had a party that’s this formal before so I was excited to do my makeup. I didn’t want to have my hair fixed so I searched for youtube tutorial and decided to do Estee’s hair tutorial. It’s quite easy to do, just make sure to prep your hair if you have long and thick hair like mine. All you need is a headband, bobby pins, texturizing spray and hair spray to hold everything in place. Watch her tutorial, it’s so easy peasy!
I have an event on Dec 1 and I decided to wear false eyelashes. The first time I used false eyelashes was for a wedding and I did not put it on myself. I knew I needed to practice so I browsed online and found out that Red Cherry lashes are quite good and not very expensive. It costs 160 pesos each pair in Digital Traincase. I was set to order from there but Duo lash glue was out of stock so I browsed online for a lashglue and stumbled upon BeautyMNL’s site. I’ve been to the site before because they’re the sister company of Deal Grocer, which I frequent a lot. Lo and behold, I also found Red Cherry lashes there! I was able to find a lash glue too and they offered free shipping so I ended up ordering from them and not DTC. Heh. (I still love Ms. Sol and DTC though.)
I ordered a total of 4 lashes and 1 lash glue. My total was 940 pesos. I learned that Deal Grocer Platinum and Elite members get to enjoy free shipping! Uhm, yes, I am a platinum member ._.
I ordered it end of day Friday, Nov 21 and the order arrived on Monday, Nov 24. Their service is super fast. I am very impressed!
All beauty lovers will love this site. They have makeup, skincare, and haircare items. You can shop for high end brands like Dior, Nars, MAC, Bobbi Brown, etc. but they also have drugstore brands like Revlon, Neutrogena, Max Factor and the like. They also have Tarte, Korres, Buxom, which are brands are that are not yet available locally. After your first purchase, you’ll get 10% rebate on your succeeding purchases. That’s some nice perk, don’t you think? I think this is a nice way to finish some of your Christmas shopping to avoid traffic (human and cars alike) as well as long lines in stores. They also deliver nationwide so this is a plus for people outside Manila to enjoy products that aren’t usually available locally.
Hope this post helps you with your shopping list! 3 days to go and it’s December, oh yeah! 🙂
*I am not paid to promote this site. It just so happened that I really enjoyed their service.
