FRUGAL friday 

Rockin’ this look that I wore for my friend’s  birthday. I’m wearing this  off shoulder top which I got from greenhills shopping mall for only php150. 

Pruducts Used for this make up look are so cheap you can get then anywhere online,  pigmentation of eyeshadow palette   is not bad. Slightly muted but its still  wearable and workable 😉 

  1. Garnier 5sec blur – php200 
  2. Klean color foundation- php 199
  3. Lebalge eyebrow pencil – php 100
  4. Essence all about matt – php 250 
  5. Majolica Majorica cheek and lip tint- php 300  
  6. Loreal double wear mascara – php 300
  7. Loreal infallible cream shadow (liquid diamond) – php 120 
  8. Replica of MAKEUP forever  -php 150 

All items are bought online. Ebay and shopee. 

Lately I have been doing my brows first, then eyeshadow then the rest of my face. I noticed a big difference,  I feel like it gives a much  polished look. Maybe its just me,  maybe.   

So like I’ve said,  since the eyeshadow is very muted,  I had to wet  my brush  to get the color out.  Adding loreal cream shadow is optional but i wanted to give it a little shimmer so I did. 😉

For my lips,  I just went with a tiny coat of the Majolica Majorica lip and  cheek tint. 
So If you are looking for a cheap, alternative product ,  these are wroth trying especially the setting powder by Essences ,  I simply cant get enough of this.    


when in Dollar Store ( ph)

Hello lovely ladies, 
I wanted to share with you these fab finds from the DOLLAR STORE   (greenfields pavillion mall) 


1. Beauty treats matte blush Palette (php 199)
2. klean color foundation (php99 )
3. velvet gloss lip  color (php 99)  velcro (php20)

review : 

these are so pigmented. it is definitely worth buying.  the original price cost php 299,  but mine was discounted because the lid is kinda broken, but hey, php 100 discount is still not bad,  it is just a lid anyway.

Swatches  from first row :  left to right



bottom row :  left to right

When I first applied it,  i was like “whoah! too much,  too much.. LOL” And i had to blend it several times. good thing these are blendable..

the color variation is very versatile.
the longevity is Ok.  it lasted for about 5 hours without re-applying.. 



I chose the lightest shade available  rosey beige –  this one has a pink undertone to it.
the color selection is from light to dark skin tone.
when you apply it,  its kinda liquidy.
doesn’t last very long but it keeps the skin looking fresh because it feels very hydrating on the face.
the coverage is LIGHT ,  very good during the summer time,  it doesn’t cake up or cling on to dry patches..
I’d give this one a 6 out of 10 stars.
It has a pump. glass bottle. 30ml and has spf 20
it lasted for only 4 hours, given the fact that I was inside the mall,  I didn’t sweat but still it didn’t last very long.
verdict : for PHP 99  pesos,  i’d say go for it. 🙂



This is the only thing that disappointed me.
Its not velvet. its not gloss.
now that is false advertising.
I was looking for something glossy  so i was disappointed to find out this isn’t what im looking for.
the product isn’t that bad,  id still wear it,  use it when i feel like it,  color is very vibrant, lasted for 5 to 6 hours.
a good matte lipstick if you are into matte…. 
again,  only disappointed by the fact i was deceived by flase claim.

The last but not the least is the php 20 hair velcro that you use to get you baby bangs away from your face.
I have been looking for this online and they all cost php100+ ,  and I find that very expensive and offensive for a little  velcro. so i was really happy to have found this.

check out the DOLLAR STORE IN GREENFIELDS MANDALUYONG if you are in the area,  they have a lot of good stuff there. 

til next..
