#BeSensational with Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

If you've wondered how bloggers make their IG posts so nice, well, I will readily admit that a lot of the pretty photos bloggers have are also because of the super nice blogger kits that brands send over! This one from Maybelline is a good example. They are launching their newest Lash Sensational mascaras which are due to hit the stores in May 1. This new mascara is all about zero clumps, zero mess, just clean and volumized lashes. And as for why they sent flowers, it's because this mascara promises that it will enhance your lashes and put them in full bloom. 

And well, please welcome Maybelline's newest Meow-bassador, Uno! You may have encountered me talking about my cat Sandy a few times here on the blog and sometimes on the vlog as well. Uno is her son. I was due to take photos of the basket on our garden's grassy area, when he came over and got curious with the package. He was sniffing the flowers and staring at the whole thing. I don't know if it's just me but he's such a handsome boy so I decided to include him in this photoshoot as well. Perhaps it's now safe to say that this mascara may help you achieve the best cat eye look?

Pond's Pure White Foaming Facial Wash

This is a product that I reaaaally wished were sold in the Philippines! This is one of my bottles of Pond's foaming facial washes. I've been able to buy foaming washes from Pond's from China and Hong Kong since waaaay back in 2010, and I'm honestly puzzled as to why it isn't here yet. I know we are still into all the facial scrubs, but I am really excited for something like this.

Nivea Slidefest 2016

If I called the shots on Nivea Slidefest, I'd say that there's only one rule. And that rule is to not go alone. Because it's so fun you will constantly think of so many people whom you should have brought along with you! 

That was exactly what happened to me yesterday when I went to Nivea Slidefest 2016. So this year, they held it in Filinvest City. Last year, they held it in Subic. And what is Slidefest? It's a family friendly experience where you ride on a lifesaver and slide down a suuuper long inflatable slide, with foam squirting out if you want to! 

The reason why the areas where they hold this event are so far flung is because the slide has about a 15-20 degree incline. It can't be flat because the water on the slide cannot propel people properly. It also can't be too steep as the trip down would be too fast and it'd be too short for the people, or could possibly cause friction burns as you rub against the slide's surface. I initially thought that this was flat and wondered why they couldn't make this in a BGC field or in MOA Concert grounds instead. Well, now I know. 

There were bloggers at the event for Slidefest itself, and there were bloggers for Nivea, as this is co-presented by Nivea. And yaaay! I was one of them! I brought my Nivea Sun Protect and Light Feel sun spray with me and took it to the ultimate sun test. And before coming to the event I already applied my Nivea sun Whitening SPF50 lotion. This was my tactic because I wanted to make sure I had a thick enough layer of sunscreen as possible so that it wouldn't wear off no matter what. 

And yes, I went alone, which is super sad! I asked the staff to take this photo of me as I wasn't with anyone. I really wish my family could've gone with me as it's a unique and a super fun experience. I am also super stressed out all the time, so doing something fun and relaxing for a change was a big help to my sanity.

Big Nivea Sale Price List

So it's the most awaited time of the year when it comes to Nivea! I made a small haul last year when Nivea had their sale, and this year I made a small deo haul hahaha. In light of that, I have here the price list for all Nivea products whose regular prices and sale prices I know of. 

DISCLAIMER: Please note that promo varies from store to store based on stocks and availability, so please do not use my name when you want to argue with sales staff hahaha. Prices reflected here may be a little different amongst different stores due to fluctuations in pricing, and since I may not update this often, prices may change as months pass. Also, this is not yet the most complete list, so I will be coming back to this post whenever I get new information.

Etude House Look at My Eyes (BR402) Eyeshadow Review and Swatches

New year, new eyeshadow (?) Well, this isn't a new eyeshadow. I bought this waaay back in 2014, took these photos in 2014, but well, life happened so it's only now I got to blog about this! 

This is Etude House's Look At My Eyes eyeshadow single in BR402. I bought this as a consolation prize-ish thing, because I was at Etude House and fell in love with BR401, which is a glittery taupey mocha brown. To my extreme sadness, it was not available and the sales staff forgot to keep the tester! I think you are all aware about the trucking issues that affected all businesses that involve importation at the time. 

But well, past is past, so here I am to talk about this shade, which is equally as lovely.

My Recent CanMake Haul

Weeee! It's been quite some time since I got to talk about CanMake products and I'm so happy to be able to do it again! CanMake is one of the first brands I started investing in as a makeup junkie, and it's also one of my all time favorite brands given how cute and ergonomical their products are. My eternal favorites are their shading power, jewelstar eyes, gradation wink eyeshadow, and their Perfect Serum BB cream. I am always on the lookout for new stuff to try, which is why this haul came to be. When we went to Hong Kong, I was just going to buy their Glow Fleur highlighter, but well, this happened. 

It was time for the holidays so there were so many items on sale and with special discounts and freebies that I just had to get this and that and this and that, and from one highlighter this video and blog post came to be.
