The Hit List (March and April 2012)

Hi everyone. Before going to the Hit List for the Months of March and April, I just want to share with you a weird experience a while ago. I was too engrossed finishing my pleading and I hurriedly placed my Iphone 4 inside my bag after finishing my pleading. When walking inside the mall, my phone just won't turn on! I was holding down the power button but my phone just died. I was frantically going nuts while going home. Thanks to google! If I have not read that this problem were usually experienced, I would have gone to Greenhills and had my phone hatch open! Hahaha If this happens to you, Just hold the power and home buttons for like ten to fifteen seconds and it will magically reboot! yay!! I am never a techie person. I can live with a cellphone that can just text and call, So  this is so new to me. LOL And damn, I am proud that I did not go to greenhills to have my phone fix. 

Moving on, these are the products that I am loving for the months of March and April.

Obsessed with brows like Michelle Phan's latest video? Yes, I am!! I bought these Etude House Drawing Eye Brow Pencils because of Bing of Project Awesome, Say Artillero and Noe of Color is my weapon. Indeed! These pencils are love!! Also, I got the Etude House Color My Brows Brow Gel in No. 2 or Light Brown. This is always out of stock. I had been to three different Etude House Branch and they have no stock of this one. Thus, I ended up buying one at Ebay! Full Review on my brow savers will be up soon. (hopefully) hehe. 

Second product is this Physiogel Lotion. You all know that I am suffering from Psoriasis but  have not flared up because after my grandfather died and while I was waiting for the bar results, I suffered from a different disease which is pityriasis rosea. Yay!! I told you I have very sensitive skin. I blame this to Psalmstree Placenta Soap. I tried this because a lot of girltalkers (girls from girltalk forum) were raving about how this soap made their skin whiter!! Duh!!I developed rashes and it spread all over my body. OOhh do not worry like psoriasis, Pityriasis rosea is not contagious at all. Although, there is no known cause for this, I really blame that soap for my rashes. Anyways, I stayed away from scented lotions and soap. I was really happy that I bought this lotion. It made my skin well moisturized throughout the day. Will I buy again? Yes!! I bought this for around 600 pesos.

I have expressed my dismay on my NYX Antwerp. I just love the shade of that NYX soft matte Lip Cream but I had to coat my lips 3-4 times to achieve the shade that I want. True enough like my readers told me, since I have dark lips, darker shades of these lippies would work best on me. Now, I am loving NYX Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo. This made me forget that I have other lippies in my makeup stash.haha My go to lipstick for summer and perhaps all year  round. Just one swipe and it turns my dark lips into hot lips. hehe
Here is the swatch. No lip liner was used on this photo.
For 65 pesos, who would not love this Ilog Maria Lipbalm that is made from all natural ingredients. I got mine freshly made from Ilog Maria's Bee Farm in Tagaytay. Damn! It made me forget about Maybelline Baby Lips. HAhaha I love reapplying because of the cool sensation it gives. My lips feel so moisturized and I find the cooling effect very relaxing and refreshing at the same time.

I have sworn to myself way back in high school that I will never ever use any Ponds Products again. Their products just makes my skin break out like crazy. However, for every general rule, there is always an exception. This is the Pond's Perfect Care Lemon Cold Cream. I have reviewed the Cold Cream before and this one is their latest version of it with a lemony scent. It is my holy grail makeup remover. It can easily wipe off stubborn waterproof mascaras and eyeliners!! This one is definitely a must have. 

Hair Heroes Extreme
This one is the latest version. I got it for 499 pesos at the Snoe Suntervention Bloggers Convention. The scent is so addicting!! It amazingly tames my hair whether I use it as a daily conditioner, or a deep conditioning treatment and even as a leave on. I simply love it!!

All Philippine Made products should be labeled this way, don't you think?

Almost through with this bottle! Will I buy again? YES YES YES!!

I forgot to add the picture of Barry M Lipstick in Sunset. The shade is simply perfect for summer. Click here for my review:

  1. Waiting for your etude house brow product reviews! I'm obsessed with brows. I have MAC brow gel and they say that EH Color my brows is a good dupe. I hope so!

  2. I'm using the Physiogel facial wash myself. I haven't figured out yet which is cheaper though, Physiogel or Cetaphil.

  3. At dahil sinabi na you like the nyx lip cream...ako ay bibili :)

  4. I have the cream version of physiogel. Ok sya lalo na sa sun burnt skin, ang bilis maka-recover ng skin.

    And I have drawing too.

  5. Ilog Maria lip balm just gives me too much pout and my lips sting because the mint factor is just too much for me. =( I love their other products, though, specially the massage oils! I'd be going back to their farm if I have the time, it's so serene there. =)

  6. Agree with the Etude House Brows products! I am completely in-love with them! Would like to try out the Pond's cold cream! :)

  7. Hindi kna ba ngbreakout sa Pond's? Kasi ngbbreakout ak0 khit anong product ung bilhin ko sa Pond's e..

  8. Ohh it's back! I like the lemony Ponds better than the original version. Maybe you'd like Etude's Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream in lemon too, mas light yung texture niya compared to Pond's. :)

  9. i would like to try the Etude House Brow gel! :)

  10. Me too im obsessed with brows too iba tlg ang look pag maganda ang kilay gaya nga ng sabi ni michelle phan: your eyes are the windows to your soul, and windows need frames, so that should make your brows the frames to your eyes! right? haha im so excited to see your review on etude house color my brow gel, matagal ko na tlg gustong bilin yan kso nag hesistate prn aq..hehe :)
