Aritaum Styling Eyes Palette & Idol Brow Mascara - First Impressions

In keeping with the previous post, I thought I'd do a picture-laden review of the two makeup products I got today. Well, one, because the other one I am already wearing in one of the photos below. 

As I've previously mentioned, I got these off Dara Beauty Market (you can find the link to their page in my 'where to buy' post in the tags) for Php 420.00. 

I've only seen this on other online shops and I was so happy to be able to order them, and legit squealed when the package came today. 

So, here we go! My first impressions of the Aritaum Styling Eye Palette. 

I got the Grey Brown palette, one of four eyeshadow palettes; orange browns, neutral beiges, and a burgundy one. It's made up of 4 mattes and 1 shimmer. 

It's actually pretty small, which is great for stashing in your makeup bag when you want to touch up somewhere. It also comes with a dual ended sponge-tip applicator which is also great if you want to put these shadows on and you can't be bothered to r…

November Skincare and Makeup Haul!

Hurrah! I am back with another haul for this month. If you've noticed I haven't been doing hauls as much for the past few months since August because I just started a new job back in September so I couldn't really get my hands on new stuff. Anyway, this is probably my one-time big time haul for the month, so yeah, here it is! 

I purchased these items from Dara Beauty Market. For those of us who are from the PH, I suggest checking this store out because the prices are a lot reasonable in this store. They have a physical shop in Cebu, so there's that too and they have a lot of payment methods. 
I legit squealed when I saw this at home already. haha. 

I even got a free Cloud 100 cream...which I have yet to look up what it is exactly. 

Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner - I repurchased this HG toner of mine. I've been having skin issues a month or so ago, and I ran out of toner a few weeks ago. 

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask - The most raved about sleeping mask! I'l…

Attempted Look: The Lazy Girl's Smoky Eye

Personally, I'm not very good with eyeshadows. I don't really know how to do a legit smoky eye makeup with those. This one however, I've learned to do after watching a tutorial from the makeup goddess Lisa Eldridge. This is a smoky eye that doesn't need the whole transition shade, crease color, basically anything that would have me reaching for my black eyeshadows and eyeshadow brushes. 

I present: The Lazy Girl's Smoky Eye. The look only calls for incredibly smudged up eyeliner, and a little pop of color on the lips.

Etude House Play 101 Pencil - #1
