Oakley Jupiter Squared | Glasses Online

Have you had those days that your eyes get swollen because of tiredness? That despite numerous tries of cold compress and makeup hacks, the swelling still stays? Lately, aside from covering the dark marks I have on my face, hiding swollen and dark undereyes is one of the battles I have to face everyday. For the times I couldn't dare to live with it, I use squared sunglasses to hide it.

I have a handful of sunglasses in my closet with each one of them getting a bit of my love. But lately, I am playing favorites with my Oakley Jupiter I got from Glasses Online. I jumped off my usual taste of big and girly sunglasses when I got this pair. For some reasons, out of tons of sunglasses available on Glasses Online, my eyes were glued on the manly Oakley shades.

The Jade Iridium lenses bordered by a polished black frames of Oakley Jupiter got me. It is masculine in appearance but the shape suits my face perfectly. It is lightweight, perfect for long hours of use. To top that, it is trendy and fashionable.

Glasses Online has quality eyewear at remarkably low price. It is the Philippine's first online glasses store with a wide selection of high quality eyeglasses, frames, contact lenses and branded sunglasses.

So how does this pair cover my undereyes? It's does the job perfectly, darling! This got my dark, swollen undereyes covered.

Expect too see me often with the Oakley Jupiter sitting on my cheekbones. Saying that also means I am often seen with dark and swollen undereyes. :)

Get your hands on brands like Oakley, Ray Ban, Prada and so much more on!

K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara | Review

Hands down, K-Palette makes awesome products. Don't make me start raving about their Real Lasting Eyeliner because I'll have tons of good, if not great, words to say about it. The Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow is a staple in my kit that I have 10 (Yes, 10!) backups. Words can't express how much I love K-Palette. It is a kind of love that makes me stalk every so often to get a glimpse of the newest offering of the brand.

It was late 2012 when I learned that the K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara was already available in Japan. I was itching to get my hands on it but the negative reviews on the then brush it came with made me think twice. Good thing, the people behind K-Palette addressed the concern immediately that they have released the same brow mascara with a new and better brush dubbed as a shower head brush applicator.

K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara 24h:
Complete your eyebrow makeover and have softer looking brows with this eyebrow mascara.
  • smudgeproof and water-resistant polymers
  • change and match your hair color in an instant while keeping your brow strands in place
  • can be removed with soap and water
  • with beauty essences to take care of your skin and brows

Whenever I define my brows it always turn out darker than I want it to be because of my naturally jet black brow hairs. Here is where brow mascaras will become essential. Brow mascaras don't just keep the brow hairs in place, it also change and/or lighten the hair color.

K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara is available in 2 shades: 101 Light Brown and 102 Natural Brown. Personally, I prefer using the Natural Brown shade to match my brows with my now dark brown hair.

The unique brush shape gets into each and every brow hair without tinting the skin. This can be used alone by those who have nicely shaped and relatively thick, defined brows. For me, who needs draw in hairs to define my brows, I cannot use this on its own. That's not an disadvantage though, because this baby works divine.

I LIKE that ...
  • the shower head brush tints each and every brow hair.
  • it keeps the brow hair in place the entire day.
  • it tints the brows making it match the hair color.
  • it is waterprooof.
  • it is sweatproof.
  • it doesn't mess up with the way I define my brows. Other brow mascaras tend to 'erase' the definition I give my brows.
  • can be removed with just facial wash and water.
  • is affordable for only Php595.00.

I DON'T LIKE that ...
  • it is only available in 2 shades.

I prefer to use the shade Natural Brown because it matches my now dark hair perfectly. Looking at the photo below, the K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara does lighten my brow hairs but doesn't wash it off. It keeps the brows in place for the entire day so I don't have to worry about my brows going places.

 For more information, visit K-Palette Philippines on Facebook. K-Palette is available in all Beauty Bar stores and in Rustan's.

Do you have any brow concerns? Comment below. I might be able to help you! :)

The Perks of Online Shopping

With the busy schedule almost all of us is living, going in malls and spending time in stores to shop and buy for a thing or two can sometimes be a luxury. There are days when we just want to stay home and recharge after a day’s or a week’s work that getting our bums to go out to run errands or pick up something in malls can be so stressful.  Take into consideration the traffic on the way to our destination and the number of people accidentally hitting and bumping you. Sounds too lame, but these are just few of the things why I now prefer shopping online over going to malls.

Photo from Google

Online shopping is a hit nowadays. Normally, aside from convenience, people resort to online shopping because of great deals, promos and dibs on up and coming products. Online stores also offer products that are not yet available in the market or hard-to-find products in a much cheaper price. Can I just add that online shopping somehow spares you from impulse buying? Again, it is ‘somehow’ because it does not apply in every instance. I, too, am guilty of online impulse buying.

Anyway, let me give you a rundown why online shopping is the bomb.

1.     Online shopping is convenient.

Convenience is relative, really. I see online shopping to be suitable for my lifestyle. I seldom want to spend time out of the house but I like looking for new stuff and eventually buy some. Shopping online allows me hit these two birds at once. With almost all things I need are available online, I no longer need to stress myself out with traffic and overcrowded places. I only have to browse for products I like in the web, pay it through bank deposit and just wait for the items to be delivered on my doorsteps.

2.      Online shopping offers items that are not yet available locally.
Have you dreamed of items that are only available abroad? Or items that are very hard to find? Count on me when I say that there are online shops that sell hard to find items. In my case, I resort to online shops for my makeup wishes that are only available abroad. Just take time to browse through shops to get your hands on products you want.

The newest styles take awhile to get into our local shores but thanks to online shops, especially foreign ones, for giving first dibs on the newest in the fashion scene. I know you’ve heard of Nordstrom, one of the leading fashion retailers in the US. It is one of the shops my dad visits whenever I ask him to get me something stylish and fashionable. It continues to update their site with latest trends in the market. Here are some of the items I am currently eying:

Simi Jumpsuit

Michael Kors 'Layton Pave' Dial Bracelet Watch

Urban Decay Vice 3
3.      Online shopping has a lot of good deals.
For the online shops I frequent, I am pretty sure I get a great deal on the products I get. Well, it can still be a bit expensive but consider all the taxes, fees and hassles the seller faced to bring in the product which, relatively, justifies the prices of their goods. So yeah, buying online is still cheaper compared to shopping in malls, for me at least. No need to dine in restaurants, pay for car fuel and parking, buy unnecessary stuff and the likes.

Did I mention that online shops give out irresistible discounts? Don’t get me started on the discounts because it always cause a lot trouble to my wallet.  Nodstrom does not just offer discounted fashion items, there are also Nordstrom coupon codes one can use to further add discounts on his or her purchase. Awesome right?

Now that Christmas is coming, I will sure choose to buy gifts online. It saves me from the hustles and bustles of the city and gives me great deals and discounts that I will sure enjoy! Cheers to online shops!
