My Addictions, Shopaholic must-haves, Sorta Review

What’s new in my closet?

Color Eyeshadow Palette

I have always wanted to buy those 120 color eyeshadow palette we see on Ebay but because most of them are unbranded or fake branded, I didn’t. Beauty magazines have always reminded us about harmful ingredients and how much damage it can cause. Un-for-tu-nate-ly (or maybe fortunately — depends who you ask), the tiangge of Eastwood was just too much for my EQ. By the 3rd stall that had the palettes, my wallet had a mind of it’s own.

What: Fresh Green Mix Mineralize Eyeshadow (Unbranded or dupe MAC)
Where: Eastwood Tiangge
Cost: P800

Sulfate & Sodium-free Keratin Shampoo &  Conditioner

As I blabbed on my previous post, I recently had Brazilian Blowout done to my hair. I am not inclined to repeat the process any time soon so I was on a hunt to find a sulfate-free keratin shampoo. The search was for Keratin Complex Color Care Shampoo & Conditioner but after 1 week, several salons, several malls, and several friends not finding any. It became a search for just any sulfate-free keratin shampoo while I continue the holy grail search.

Nice and I happened to be in MOA yesterday so I decided to see if Marionnaud carried any, I almost gave up but good thing I decided to search for OPI nail polish because right beside the OPI rack was Organix. The products were cheaper than Keratin Complex and Pureology and that’s not such a good thing. After buying the products, I went online to find some reviews and every website has mix feedback about the product. Seems like an equal percent like and hate the Brazilian Keratin line. Hopefully, I get to be part of the like crowd.

What: Organix Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy Shampoo & Conditioner
Where: Marionnaud, MOA
Cost: P449 each

Orly Nail Lacquers

Every time I head into an Orly reseller, I am on the lookout for the Sweet Collection’s Snow Cone even if I know it’s part of their limited edition 2010 collection. Of course, I always get disappointed. To get over the disappointment, I bought 2 new colors (please help me remember to bring it to the salon when I have my pedi).

What: Orly Rich Creme Permanent Collection
Color: Basket Case
Where: Marionnaud, MOA
Cost: P349.75

Waterproof Mascara

What happened to L’oreal’s Telescopic Clean Mascara? I can still see it in L’oreal Paris’ website but every store I’ve been to here in Manila does not carry it anymore. One attendant had told my sister that it had been discontinued! It’s going to be a shame if it truly has been discontinued as it’s the only one I’ve used for almost 3 years.

While I still have my last tube of Telescopic, I am on the search for a new mascara. Let’s start with Maybelline and the attendant’s recommendation for me.

What: Maybelline the Magnum Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara
Where: Watsons
Cost: P359
Brand Website:

Vanity Mirror

Vanity’s favorite friend, mirror. 🙂 Fits well into my toolbox.

What: Paganini Mirror
Where: Watsons

I’ll try to post reviews as I get to use each item.
