EB Advance Glow Out Highlighters, Ever Bilena EB Matte Liquid Lipsticks, and MORE NEW MAKEUP!

I went to the #EBBoldBeauty Blogger Event last week and had a blast. A huge reason for that is finding out that Philippine makeup brand Ever Bilena will be launching new products soon together with EB Advance!

It isn't a secret that a significant percentage of my followers and subscribers found me through my reviews of local makeup products. I also often get asked what local highlighter I can recommend that would be affordable for someone with a student's or a yuppie's budget and FINALLY, I got possible answers soon!

Just a heads up, the following new EB Matte liquid lipsticks, EB Advance Glow Out Highlighters and more were just shown to us bloggers as a sneak peek. I do not own them YET. Everything that I would be saying in the following paragraphs are all first impressions. Please refrain from sending DMs and PMs asking about a definite date for a review because the only way for me to have access to the following products is when they become available in the store since I am not part of Ever Bilena's PR list as far as I know (only EB Advance and Careline have sent me samples and only recently). As such, it might take a while before I can complete the new EB Matte liquid lipsticks etc after official release. I promise to share in-depth reviews as soon as I have them and have taken them for a test drive :)

Now, on with all the new EB Advance and Ever Bilena Makeup!

Ever Bilena Matte Liquid Lipsticks and EB Advance Highlighters - New Makeup!


I can't believe I almost missed seeing these soon-to-be-released makeups at the #EBBoldBeauty Blogger event!

Come July to August 2017, the following new EB Advance and Ever Bilena makeup products will hit the Philippine makeup market:

Fade Pimple Marks Fast with NEW Pond's White Beauty Detox Cream!

There’s now a solution to our skin woes, particularly dark spots and pimple marks! The New Pond's White Beauty Detox Cream promises to fade pimple marks fast!

NEW Pond's White Beauty Detox Cream!




There is no doubt that our environment these days is just too harsh for our skin. The harsh rays of the sun causes dark marks on our skin, and the dirt and pollution can cause pimples that leave hard-to-get-rid-of dark pimple marks. because of this, The Pond’s Institute formulated the Pond’s White Beauty Detox for Oily Skin after years of research. It comes with a lot of Vitamin B3+ that protects skin inside to fade dark pimple marks 3x faster resulting in that Pond's trademark Rosy White Glow. 

I'm so excited about this because the product sounds like a new solution to lighten dark pimple marks!

Ever Bilena Bold Beauty Blogger Event #EBBoldBeauty

So I figured that I should take a rest from the Pinay Beauty And Style Youtube channel and concentrate on blogging for a while. What better event to start that with than with Ever Bilena's Bold Beauty Blogger event right? (since most of you found my blog and vlog via reviews of their products). Truth be told, I'm not really into attending beauty events and the like unless I REALLY like the brand, product to be launched, or the people who will be there. I'd rather just buy new releases or wait for PR parcels than mingle with people....IKR? Weird beauty blogger haha! #introvertproblems Luckily for me, the Bold Beauty Blogger event by Ever Bilena combines all that. 


#EBBoldBeauty Blogger Event


Okay, all I know of the event from the invites that was sent was that we are supposed to show up fresh faced or bare faced and that we will be applying makeup and then participating in a photo shoot. For me this means that we 'might' get to try new products or up and coming ones. I also know that the freshest Philippine talents in makeup artistry will be there so of course I ended up going.

And oh boy, was it super worth it!

my finished #EBBoldBeauty look - I love it!

Found the Best Waterproof Bag! Here's My Beachkin Bag Story and Review

Beachkin bags Philippines...I remember typing that on my browser after I've seen some very pretty beachkin bags on my social media feed. I've been wanting to get one for the longest time but my practical side held me off, putting forth the fact that I won't have anywhere to go to with the bag...and that was not untrue.

Most beach kin bags you'll see if you made a search on Instagram are small pastel ones or come in very loud colors, far from my aesthetic. As much as I wanted to buy one, I knew that I won't have a real use for it...


...that is until I saw the beautiful navy blue beachkin bag above at the Estilo Glam Chic display at MAD Manila!

Okay, okay...I do admit that even after seeing the bag (that comes in a color that's totally me), I was still not sold on the idea of owning one. Why? Because I was thinking that it won't be able to hold up for daily use because I have this crazy habit of bringing an ungodly amount of personal things with me whenever I go out haha! 

Yup! I'm one of those persons who would bring a kikay kit, several chargers, gadgets, a notebook, and power banks even if I'll just be running errands and would be away for 3 hrs max. I thought that the bag would die an early death and join my other bags in bag heaven haha! 

Careline Liquid Lipstick Review with Swatches - All Shades!

I have an unhealthy sort of relationship to matte liquid lipsticks. I mean, I love all sorts of colorful things in general, but mention liquid matte lipsticks and you can surely get my attention in a snap! That's why I was in full attention when Philippine drugstore makeup brand Careline came up with matte liquid lippies!

Careline Liquid Lipstick Review with Swatches - All Shades!


Careline Liquid Lipstick Review with Swatches
Careline Liqiuid Lipstick Lip Swatches (haha!)

I'd have to admit, though, when I first saw Careline liquid lipsticks at Watson's, I simply walked past them because they look like ordinary lippies (see packaging). Then, saw a post at IG and wow! Liquid lipstick pala!

Still, I didn't get my hopes up thinking perhaps this is just a tint like the EB Advance ones in white packaging and I'm glad that I was wrong.


NEW Warm Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Town! Cathy Doll Nude Me Palette!

Oh No! Not another Naked palette dupe! It's like every brand has been coming up with nude eyeshadow palettes, right? So what is different with this Cathy Doll Nude Me 'Nude' eyeshadow palette?

Well, for starters, the brand never claimed that their palette is 'another' Naked palette dupe, so that's refreshing! Another thing is that this may be the most affordable Naked palette look-alike next to the one by City Colors...and, hold your breath! Cathy Doll's version claims to be long wearing even without a primer!

Whoa!

Hearing about all of that, of course, I couldn't resist writing a

Review for Cathy Doll Nude Me Eyeshadow in Nude!



A Budget-Friendly Taupe Eyeshadow Palette You Won't Wanna Miss! Cathy Doll Smoky Palette from their Nude Me Collection!

Whoooo! New eyeshadow! Is it just me or is anyone out there also into collecting new eyeshadow palettes? Even those which you don't really intend to use because you have a gazillion other palettes sporting the same shadow shades? I ain't got no shame in my game that I like taupe eyeshadow colors.

To be honest, taupe colors don't really suit my skin tone unless I slather on the black and go for intense panda smoky eyes but hey, nobody can stop me from wearing them when I'm at home!


Enter Cathy Doll's new Smoky Eyeshadow Palette from their recently launched Nude Me makeup collection...

Cathy Doll Nude Me Eyeshadow In Smoky Review


I was immediately smitten by the mix of warm nude shades for the top row and the cool-toned taupe shades at the bottom row in this smoky palette. Aren't they so pretty?


Cathy Doll Smoky Palette has both cool tones (bottom row) and warm tones (top row). Love the inclusion of the matte black!

This is the part 2 of my review series on the Cathy Doll Nude Me eyeshadow collection. You can find links to the 2 other palettes at the last part of this review.

I got this palette as a press sample after attending the Cathy Doll Nude Me collection launch last week. My two nieces helped in testing out the palettes with me.

Doesn't the Smoky palette remind you of the Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay? See swatches below!
