| Beautybook Goodie Bag* |
About last month I received an email saying when I signed up for Beautybook.ph I was chosen to receive a goodie back with some beauty bits in it. I was really excited and when I got it in the mail I thought it was quite generous of them. I usually never win things or get a chance to be apart of this sort of thing so I was quite lucky. I couldn’t wait to show you the contents in it with you.
It came in a standard mail pouch and it was in a double envelope to make it safe which was really nice of them. It came as is so inside the makeup bag was the contents. So let’s get into see what was inside nd my initial thoughts about each one.
It came with these three things so the first thing I pulled out was the lip balm, then the face cream and lastly the eyeshadow palette. They are all Filipino products but I think they sell Ponds in other countries too but I know it is a big hit with Filipina women and a lot of my relatives use the brand but I never have so this will be the first time trying it.
The makeup bag that came with it is super big but not that big I just mean I could fit a lot of stuff in it and I love the material and isn’t it so cute that it is customized with the sites name. I’ll definitely use it and since I was in need of a new bag to put my makeup since my collection is growing and my bag is too small to fit everything this probably will be the perfect size and even great for traveling to put some other essentials in it. I’m just worried I will get it dirty and makeup might stain the inside but I guess the material will be okay with that. To be honest this was my favorite thing to receive.
The lip balm in it was from Watsons which I go shopping at once in a while. It is apple flavor and it is supposed to be moisturizing which I need so that would be great. I haven’t tried it yet and haven’t opened it as I have so many lip balms already and this would be a backup if I finish them up or in my case lose one I will be trying it out and I love apple so I hope it smells just like it. The packaging is cute and it is really tiny container which will be a little hard to find if it get lost but it is compact and great to just throw into your purse.
The Ponds face cream is one of the least things I like about it since I don’t use these type of products but I will give it a try and have its fair turn so I can review it and I might even like it. It has a few sample sachets inside so it won’t go to waste if I don’t end up liking it but I do have a cousin who wants it so I might give her the rest. I do hope I like it and at least try it.
The eyeshadow palette is from Nichidoo which I never heard about before but I love trying new palettes and building up my collection. It came with a mini eyeliner which is just perfect and I love using it hen I go out. I have tried a few of the colors in the palette. I will have a separate post on this and I will reviewing and swatching each color so look out for that.It is definitely my 2nd favorite thing in the goodie bag.
I wrote an article for Beautybook.ph a few months ago about shaving vs. waxing which can be read here. I enjoyed sharing my tips about the two and you can find out which one I prefer at the end of the post. It was one of my first times writing for an online beauty magazine site so I was quie proud. I hope you check it out and like my article.
What kind of makeup bag do you have?
