a week or a couple of weeks ago i get a message from the etude house asking me for my address, ako naman si tanga bigay agad without batting an eyelash/or asking why. bwahahaha i guess i trust them that much already. in the mail this week i received these two items from Etude House. reviews on these item will be out within next week. to be honest, it will take me about a 5days at least to try these out, that lucky number of mine when my skin tells me, ey stop the insanity, will yah? and give me a couple of zits.
and then friday night came around and Angel Reyes was lying in state at camp aguinaldo, so coming home from ortigas heading north to qc was just out of the question due to traffic. what did i see in front of the new payless shoe store at rob gale? it was a table/kiosk thing with victoria jackson products. i had first seen this survival kit from shen's addiction's blog post. i paid no never mind since even from the pictures it seemed pricey but it seemed gadgety and quite nifty for travel purposes.
so the Benj [the jowa] saw me fiddling with it and gadget nerds that we are he said, why not get it? i kinda whispered err it's pricey and not korean :P its suggested retail price is around 4k, but both Shen and i got a 'deal' or promo and got the baby for PhP1599.
so there's a mascara, 2 eye pallets, one for day, one for 'night', a couple of blushes, one pencil liner and one lip liner. there are 5 lip colors too. and all slide in and out of that slightly bigger cigarette container looking thing.
for the purchase, i was also given this card which allows me up to 50% discounts on their really expensive products. i hear my officemate who kinda lives in 168 in me but me saying, 'dun ako etUd mas muurah' hehehe
the Benj is apparently a sucker for packaging as he found the pin up girls on theBalm packaging really cute, so soon as he saw me hovering over this nars orgasm dupe he said, 'eh magkano ba yan?' sabi ko eh mahal :p well not really. i'd buy this anytime over nars. even the SA at the beauty bar asked me how much nars was, all i could say, ning, libo yun. at least, theBalm owners love their pugs. LOL.
i'm so excited to use these. the eye shadow shades from victoria jackson eye pallet are colors i'm prepared to wear. theBalm blush is super nice corally pink with gold flecks or shimmers. wonderful for summer ~_^
i have the Benj and Etude House for making my Valentine's 2011 squeeeeeeful. <3 <3<3
