New York City “mini-haul”…


Just a few of weeks ago, I went to visit New York City just for a day to spend some “Me time”. I was actually planning on heading to the Inglot store but it was a bit too far from where I was ,so I guess that’s going to be my next assignment. 🙂

Anyway, I couldn’t resist but to check out Duane Reade (the most recognized drugstore chain in metropolitan New York). Duane Reade became a part of Walgreens family and they carry a lot of great drugstore beauty products that Walgreens Pharmacy itself do not sell.

They have a beauty section (LOOK boutique) that sells a lot of amazing drugstore brands that we do not have here in Albany, NY. Few of the brands they carry are the ones that I’ve laid my hands to.

“NEW” Rimmel London Kate Sculpting & Highlighting Kit


Another exciting product that I saw at the drugstore mainly Walmart is from the brand Rimmel London by Kate Moss collection. I am not sure if this is in fact “NEW” but I’ve never seen them before. You guys know that I am an avid fan of this brand that’s why my eyes almost popped when I saw them. 🙂

First, who wouldn’t notice the packaging in a gorgeous rose gold detail? next, the shade options, and last the price, it retails for $6.49 which to me is very affordable. Continue reading ““NEW” Rimmel London Kate Sculpting & Highlighting Kit”

Top 3 ft. Topshop!


When I hear the word TOPSHOP, I think about clothes, shoes, bags and accessories. But Topshop has great beauty products too!

In this post, I will be sharing my Top 3 beauty items from Topshop.


Do It Again powder blush is such a gorgeous shade, very pigmented, super lightweight and the color payoff is just amazing when it touches your cheeks. The packaging is very compact, convenient to carry around, not too small and not too big either, this comes with a mirror which makes it even better. This perfect PEACH shade has a very subtle shimmer which makes your skin glow beautifully.

(FYI: I dropped this blush a few times and it’s still in-tact)

SUNBEAM (Gold) Highlighter is the only highlighter that I’ve reached the most. It may look “yellowish” or “goldish” in the picture or up-close but this product is just one of a kind. Just like the powder blush, this highlighter is very pigmented, not powdery and the shimmer is just perfect for your skin. I’ve used this multiple times and they still look untouched. I normally uses my fingertips when applying this highlighter as I feel like it glides better and applies better on my skin. The only thing that I wish this highlighter has is a mirror. But I mean, for the price and quality? I guess I can skip that mirror part. Right?

Shimmering silky golden highlighter to add lightness and radiance to face and body


I almost forgot that I have this lipstick, I purchased this when I went to NYC back in December. This lipstick is so smooth on the lips, the pigmentation is awesome, the packaging is adorable and the price is super affordable. I got the shade ROLE MODEL (FUSCHIA) and this is a matte finish lipstick which I love. Look at the last photo below, this lipstick is obviously long lasting. I used a damped paper towel to remove them and it doesn’t want to leave my skin!

Matte finish lipstick to smooth, moisturise and nourish lips. Apply for fabulous colour and moisturised, matte finish, wear alone or with gloss for a shiny finish

Fun Facts: All TOPSHOP products are imported and shipped from the UK.

Verdict: I never regret purchasing any of these items. From the product,
the packaging (If you’ve seen my last post Jewelry Obsessed! you know that I love “stars) and the price… it’s worth every penny.


“I wish we have Topshop store around as I would prefer seeing the
product up-close than purchasing online without me swatching or seeing how
the color or shade would look on my skin”.

Have you guys tried any TOPSHOP beauty products? and what is your favorite from their beauty collection?

Until next time…
