Now here are my answer to your questions,
1. What is your favorite day of the week? – I love Monday! YES!! you heard it right.. it’s just that Monday tends to get so busy and without you knowing, it’s all done. I even posted a blog about this.. 🙂

5. Chocolate or vanilla? – I LOVE CHOCOLATE so much! especially Chocolate Ice cream and Chocolate cake. Unfortunately, I am not a huge fan of Vanilla..

What’s your favorite movie? – since you said Movie not Movie(S) then it would be.. 50 First Dates by Adams Sandler & Drew Barrymore (I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve watched this movie).. however…I can’t help but share my 2nd fave.. and that would be “The Notebook” by Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling.. 🙂
7. Skydiving or ziplining? – I love zip-lining.. I’ve done it few times and I can’t wait to visit home and try the longest zip line in Asia which is located about 30 mins from my home. But, I also wanted to try Sky diving..unfortunately, my hubby doesn’t want me to try it. (what a bummer) lol.

I have been wanting to share a haul to you guys but I am not sure if you will love it or hate it. But I decided to share it anyway and hopefully you will like it and please share your thoughts..comments or feedback about the products.

First stop is the Hard Candy Palette in RAINING MEN (#891) and this is the first beauty product from this brand that I purchased ever. The shade and the packaging caught my eyes and hopefully I will enjoy this Eyeshadow.

I have a few mascara’s in my collection but I heard that Revlon Lash Potion is also a must try so I wanted to give this a shot and we’ll see…

Even before the hype of Rimmel products, I have been using them since then. I love their foundation and I also like the scent. I know some people doesn’t like face products with scents but I love it.

Aside from their foundation I also wanted to try the Rimmel Wake Me up Concealer even if I don’t use concealer that much but I heard this is a great product, so I hope this won’t disappoint me. I bought shades Very Fair/Light (#230) and Very Fair (#125) to see what shade fits my skin.

Moving on to lip products.

Another item from Rimmel London (surprise..surprise). This lip product only cost $6.69.

Milani is one of the best drugstore make-up that I also love. The pigmentation, consistency and their shade range are awesome.. also this lipstick smells good too.

  • True instant color lipstick with 1-stroke, full-coverage application
  • Lightweight cream formula
  • Contains vitamins A, C, and E to moisturize and nourish lips

Lastly, the what they call “underdog” beauty products. But hey! this brand is also great with great variety of shades and the price is awesome and affordable too.

Wet & Wild in Cherry Picking (#965)

This 4-hour, long wearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, creme finish in one stroke- Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesnt cake, feather, or bleed- Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A E help smooth lips.
