Isn’t it sweet to be 16 and seeing life with innocent eyes?
OK, I may not be 16, but I just feel like age is JUST A NUMBER!
I have come to realize that as years pass, birthdays become less and less celebrated. I wonder if it’s because people have grown weary of partying it up, or because they don’t WANT to acknowledge the fact the it’s a NEW year, and that means, a +1 to their biological age?
I, on the other hand, refuse to budge from the time I became 19 years old.
I fervently believe that my heart is set on that number, and shall continue to stand by it. Though mentally and physically, it might not hold true for very long; still, the mind is a powerful thing. So, think YOUNG FOREVER!
Anyway, on to my Birthday treats!
First of all, I was not expecting anything BIG. I was assuming no one would make a big deal about it, people won’t even bother greeting me, and I will spend that day very pissed off. Surprisingly, I was wrong!
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO GREETED ME!
You are all awesome and you made my day!
Next, I was super excited to receive my online buys simultaneously. They were both done smoothly and the sellers were absolutely legit. Birthdays are my excuse to splurge on anything I want. Every time I start feeling guilty, I tell myself to pause for a while and think “It’s your birthday, It’s your birthday!”
Do you do that too? I think I’m so weird for doing that.
So, for my first splurge, I was thinking online Cosmetic Shops. I was tweeting like usual when I brought it up and a few friends said I should try Ebay. But I’ve always been weary of Ebay, primarily because I don’t know how to buy from there. Plus, I don’t know any trusted sellers but thanks to Hollie , I found one that’s trustworthy AND sells products that are ridiculously cheap. These are my purchases:
Swatches are in my Vlog. Click here.
These are the prices:
- Rimmel Natural Sensation All day Make-up – P171.00
- Black Radiance Velvet & Glow in Downtown – P114.00
- Artmatic USA moisturizing lipstick – P52.25
- Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara – P99.75
- Femme Couture Total Impact Volumizing Mascara – P104.50
- Styli-Style Liner Blend Eyeliner – P76.00
I have been using a few of the products, and so far, I’m very happy with them.
The other products I got online were single eye shadows from Belleza and I got them from United Imports Trade I honestly thought they were at least 2 x 2 inch in size, but they were just an inch each! That was a bit disappointing; however, I still love the consistency and how pigmented each eye shadow is. They were sold for P80 each.
I recently purchased two other products from United Imports Trade. I paid for them yesterday and I’m waiting for them to arrive at my doorstep. Isn’t it cool getting a surprise out of nowhere? That’s one of the perks of online shopping!
My next splurge was on ELF Products. They’re not too special, but I’ve always wanted them. I kept holding back because I felt like there was no special reason for having them. I just repurchased my Apricot Beige All Over Cover Stick. YES. That’s how much I LOVE IT! I also bought the All Over Color Stick in Pink lemonade which is awesome. I literally just use these two items for work; with my brow kit of course.
Let me just say how much I love the ELF Bronzer and Blusher palette?! I thought twice about buying it the first time, but when I had lunch with a few friends, they let me try it and I fell in love; especially after comparing it with NARS Orgasm that my friend had with her. I am telling you guys, try it!
The rest are random cosmetics that I thought were pretty interesting, like the In2it eyebrow kit that my friend Noe aka COLORismyweapon uses and the Fashion 21 Loose Powder that I have been dying to get since I got the wrong color, thanks to that sales lady.
I’ve started using some of these products, and so far, so good. I can’t wait to do a review on every item. If you are all interested in getting one for yourself here are the links to the sellers:

Thank you for reading my post and I hope you enjoyed it. Stay tuned for a few Summer tutorials using these products. I’ve been trying to brainstorm and find the perfect time to sit down and work on them. As you all know, ever since I started working, I’ve been in a tight schedule.
Thank you for continuously supporting me even though I haven’t been uploading videos as much. You are all amazing and you motivate me to continue doing this.
Have a great day!
Lots of Love
