Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream

Before purchasing the Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream (regular price at USD 80 / around PHP 4,750 for 15ml) when it went on sale, I asked my beauty writer friends if it was worth it. From that discussion, I walked away thinking that eye care products aren’t exactly the most high-priority skincare investments. (Hey, some folks do just fine with also using their moisturizer as eye cream.) But it’s more like a little self-care luxury, so I went ahead and got it anyway.

Bobbi Brown Skin Nourishing Glow Foundation

It’s safe to say that Bobbi Brown is one of my all-time favorite luxury brands. While everyone else’s gateway brand to the premium stuff was usually MAC, I was pining for BB makeup since 2014. (Believe me, I checked this blog’s old posts!) So it’s heartwarming to see that I still have the same sentiments in 2020. In fact, I’m currently loving the Bobbi Brown Skin Nourishing Glow Foundation in Sand (PHP 4,050 / 30ml).

April 2018 Empties

Since I rang in 2018, I’ve been spending more time shopping the beauty stash than shopping for new things. It has a lot to do with a hall closet that turned into a beauty vault during the time of the Great Hoard of 2015-2016. With that said, I’ve been quietly using up what I’ve amassed (for both the full-sized and sample-sized product categories), so expect there to be more empties posts this year.

For the first quarter, here’s the meager spread I’ve started with:

Biore, Bobbi Brown, and Estee Lauder

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation

If there’s one thing I dread when it comes to makeup shopping, it’s the tedious task of finding a foundation that works for me. I have combination-dry skin to begin with, so you can imagine the dry patches and the oily areas. Then the whole undertone thing is some serious business. I was only too relieved to find an excellent one in Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 in Sand (USD 50 / PHP 2,900).

Election Day FOTD

The Philippine election season has heated up in more ways than one! It has been said that the 2016 election has been the most intense in the modern history of the country. So much drama, and it didn’t even end with the debates and the voting. (In case you’re unaware, there was a Twitter hashtag that trended over the last 24 hours. It concerned the candidates and their family members. It may or may not involve controversial NSFW fictional stuff. Oh my.)

But anyway, the mood struck me to do a full face on voting day. Never mind that it was stifling hot and the line was expected to be at least an hour long! lol
