Local Drugstore Finds
Happy Friday! A very happy one after all drugstore makeup I bought. It’s a pretty big one and it’s from local Philippine brands. I have brands I always go to but I wanted to try some of the local stuff
I’ve said recently I’ve been in a beauty rut as you my have noticed an increase in outfits and fashion pots. I just love doing them and took my blog in a more fashion direction which I am happy with but I miss a few beauty reviews here and there so that’s why I’m hoping maybe every Monday I’ll have something beauty related. I think buying these have really increase the spark and get to try new things out. It’s been a while as I’ve been buying clothes so often I feel like I’m out of touch with buying makeup but clearly with this haul I just jumped right in. So enough of my babble and finally show you all the makeup I bought.
| Ever Bilena |
| Ever Bilena Advance Studio Finish Stick Foundation – Miel // Ever Bilena Advance Perfect Eye Concealer – CO2 Medium // Ever Bilena Face Powder – Honey // EB Advance Blush Duo – Golden Goddess // Ever Bilena Cheek Blush – Baby Pink // EB Advance Perfect Eyebrow Pencil – Dark Brown // Ever Bilena Eyeshadow Palette in Pink // EB Original Pencils // Ever Bilena Matic Liner // EB False Eyelashes – Demi // Ever Bilena Mascara with Fiber // Ever Bilena Thicklash Mascara // EB Advance Liquid Lipstick – Soft Lace |
First up I went all out with the Ever Bilena counter. I got a few items from the regular range and their pro range but when I was buying them I had no idea the difference. So according to the website it has a few different ranges and I bought a few from each. I wanted to get a full face so I got a stick foundation, concealer and powder. I got all stuff from the eyes so an eyeshadow palette, 2 mascaras, fake lashes, 2 eyeliners and an eyebrow pencil. I even got a blush and bronzer palette in a pretty color and a single blush which is a matte baby pink color. Then I am so excited for the liquid lipstick and it is such a pretty shade. Lastly I got some brushes so two single eyeshadow brushes and a 5 piece travel set.
I think I got everything I wanted and quite excited to try them. I named everything above but you can’t link any of it and it just goes to a picture so I linked the site and everything is on there.
| Careline |
| Careline Oil Control Make-up Foundation – Almond //
Careline Pimple Concealer – Oriental // Careline Oil Control Face Powder – Honey
// Careline Pocket Palette -Day Dream // I Love Careline Make-Up Set 1 //
I Love Careline Make-Up Set 3 // Careline Eyeliner // Careline Mascara //
Careline Color Pencil – 12cm – Brown // Careline Magic Lipstick – Avatar |
The next I have makeup from Careline.I bought a few of the same things maybe to do a comparison post maybe. I bought the base makeup so a liquid foundation from this brand, a liquid concealer and a powder. Then I got three palettes so one is an eyeshadow palette solely and the next two are makeup sets with blushes and eyeshadows. The makeup set 1 has 9 eyeshadows and 2 blushes while makeup set 3 has 4 eyeshadows and 2 blushes. I got a mascara, a liquid eyeliner and a brown colored pencil which I’m unsure if it is eyeliner or a brow pencil. The exciting thing and one I’m looking forward to is the brow gel and most affordable one I ever bought. Lastly I got a magic lipstick and another set of brushes.
Again, I named everything above.I love the packaging of this and the cute look of it. I went with a more simple makeup look for this and didn’t go all out like the other brand.
I’m now on the random bits I bought. First up I got an EB blade to do my brows but I think now I’m thinking to just booking in an appointment at Benefit which is where I get my brows done all the time for about 2 years so I love doing them there but when I saw this I felt a bit of confident that maybe I could do them myself in the meantime but it’s not a wise decision. It’s not going to waste as I might offer to give it to my cousin who is an expert at this herself. Next is a wash cloth material headband. I don’t know really what you call that but I’ve been needing one to keep my baby hairs from sticking in my face when I do my skincare at night. I got a pink one and I’m going to be excited to use it when I take of my makeup tonight. Last beauty bit that doesn’t belong in any category is an eyeliner. It doesn’t really have a brand but it’s called the Ashley Wonder Liner and let me tell you when I swatched the tester it was sure pigmented and long lasting because I had to take a makeup remover to it which I’m hoping it will be the same on the eyes. The smell is off putting but the quality is great.
Since I spent quite a bit of money there was a promo at my grocery store that I get a free EB product when I spent a certain amount. I forgot how much but with the whole total I was rewarded 10 products. Of course it wasn’t my choice on which product but I did get to choose the color. Another thing is I’m not sure if it is a promo for other places but maybe it is just the store I bought it’s thing. I honestly don’t know what I would do with all of this so I decided to give it away to my readers. So I’m giving two sets away on here so you’ll get one powder and one eyeshadow palette and something extra from me as a little thank you for supporting and reading my blog. For another chance to win you can head to my Youtube channel which I am giving away 3 over there and all you have to do is be subscribed and like that haul and that’s it. It’s international so wherever you are in the world you can win this. As for the blog mechanics just enter the rafflecopter widget below this and I’ll select the winner two weeks from now on the 30th.
That’s it for my drugstore haul. I actually fit all of that in a picture. I seriously thought I wasn’t but I succeeded and yes I’m pretty proud of myself for that. I’m so excited to try these out and maybe you can guess what content is coming out with what I bought. I have so many ideas right now and since buying a ring light the possibilities are endless at the moment.I have the haul video here or watch it down below. It’s pretty long so make sure you get snacks and an appetite for makeup. I hope you enjoy and hope I didn’t give you a reason to buy any makeup. Have a great weekend and let me know if you end up buying anything yourself!
