Ever Bilena Advance Eyebrow Kit: Review

Saturday, 26 November 2016
Ever Bilena Advance Eyebrow Kit Review

I got a new eyebrow powder/palette from Ever Bilena, yayy!  This is the first eyebrow palette that I will be using aside from IN2IT which I considered as HG for my brows.

So here's the story; I went to Watson to buy some stuff (blotting paper, tissues, facial wash, etc) and then I came across to the make-up section. My plan is to just windowshop and check for new products but then again I saw this palette from EB stall. Then I realized that I already  finished the lightest shade on the IN2IT palette; I checked the price and kinda amazed that it's only PHP 200.00. Without further thinking, I purchased one; I'm such an impulsive buyer. :(

UNBOXING:  

Unboxing the Eyebrow kit from Ever Bilena

Back of the eyebrow kit

THE PRODUCT
:

Three brow powder and a wax

The tweezer and the angled brush

SWATCHES: 

Swatches of the eyebrow powders
(L-R) Brown, Grayish/Black and Dark Brown

WHAT I LIKE: 
• Packaging. It's compact and sturdy.
• Affordable. For only PHP 200.00, you will be getting three brow powders, one wax and additional tools (a tweezer and a brush).
• I like the angled brush that comes in the package, it's thin and perfect to line your brows and to fill it in.
• Big mirror; perfect for retouching!

WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
• No other shades available; I wish they have more lighter shades.
• Not waterproof. A big boo boo for me as the color transfers once I oil up. :(


WILL I RE-PURCHASE? No, I just think that this product doesn't suite for my super oily skin/eyebrows. But I will keep this palette 'cause I can still use it, especially the brush and tweezer.

WILL I RECOMMEND THIS? Yes, this is a great product for those who don't have an oily skin/eyebrows and it's really affordable.


Have you already tried this product? Share me your thoughts!

Friday's 10 Happy Things // 02

Saturday, 12 November 2016
Fridays 10 Happy Things

It's been a while since the last time I did this!  So again, the Founder made this for us to list down 10 things that made us smile this week and for us to start the weekend on a more positive note.

Here are my 10 happy things:

1. New look for The Wonderless. I am still giggling whenever I am seeing the new look of my online diary.  I am so thankful to Kate, the creator of the theme, for answering all of my questions to customize my page. ♥

2. I finally used my BPI my E-Prepaid card! I used it to purchase my theme on Etsy and the transaction went soooo smoothly. I haven't added my E-Prepaid card on my BPI Online account yet but I found out that you can also reload your card through BPI ATM Machines. Hassle-free!

3. The Echo Maker. Oh, I am finally hooked to this book. I've been reading this for the past few weeks and I can tell that the story is very unique and I should say intriguing. Oops!

The Echo Maker by Richard Powers

4. Eyeglasses no more. Something happened last Monday and made my left eye swollen. Idk what happened but the nurses at our Clinic told me that it might be conjunctivitis and I was like "No fcking way!." I am 100% sure that it's not because I am not feeling any itch; for some reasons it's just swollen, watery and I am feeling a little discomfort whenever I am blinking. I've been wearing contact for the longest time and if my eye is  JUST irritated then this is the first time that it made my eye swollen. Weird, I know. But it was finally over; my left eye is now okay and I can now wear my lens again.

5. Hello Marshmallow! I finally updated my phone (Asus Zenfone Selfie) to Android 6.0. This update removes some application that I don't really use like Dr Safety, Omlet Chat, Puffin Browser, etc. The only disadvantage is the option to move an app to Micro SD. But it's fine, I don't really mind saving my apps on the internal memory.

6. The Vampire Diaries Season 8. I've been watching the episodes through Youtube 'cause the reception in our house is acting up again. #TeamBonenzo

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 03


7. Vlogs. I've tried watching vlogs for the past few days and so far, I am enjoying it. Some of my fave vloggers as of the moment are  Say Tioco, Anne Clutz, Anna Cay and Simply Rhaze.

8. Mothership album by Dance Gavin Dance. I used to hate Tilian Pearson because I think his voice doesn't suit to DGD's genre. But  I completely fell in love with his voice after listening to their previous album, Acceptance Speech and Instant Gratification.  His voice really compliments John's unclean vocals; I just love their combination.



9. Free chocolate, pen and 1-hr OT. Rewards for attending Cascade a.k.a Team Meeting. It was supposed to be an hour meeting only but it lasted for 1 and a half hours! #1by18

Cadbury chocolates and pen as reward for attending Cascade


10. My leaves got approved! That means I have 4-days off; time for short vacay. Yass!

How was your week guys?

Weekends Eat: Clash of Burgers Pasig Branch

Sunday, 6 November 2016
Clash of Burgers Pasig

Me and my boyfriend are a huge fan of burger; we're always on the hunt for the juiciest and tastiest burger in town and for us, Burger is life! Lol. My boyfriend, Yosh once showed me a Facebook page of a Burger joint who serves large burger (read: an 8 inch burger) in Pasig. I got curious because the  prices of their burgers are so affordable and they also have Set menus.

Yosh and I decided to go visit them after my appointment to my dentist. The place is not that hard to find; it's the long queue and waiting time that will make you irritated a little (if you're really really hungry, hehe). We reached their area past 5:00 PM, the room was packed and there's 3 or 4 groups that's waiting outside. We immediately approached the one who's in charged for the "Waiting Area" for them to list my name. My tummy is already screaming for burger when they called my name and asked us to finally go inside and make our order. That's almost an hour of waiting!

Inferno Tower of Clash of Burgers

We decided to try their Set Menu, Inferno Tower which costs PHP 479.00. The waiting for our food is not as long as we waited outside, maybe around 10 to 15 mins or so? Funny thing, the lady who took my order didn't ask me if we want Elixir Lemonade or Rage Red Tea; they served us this orange juice from what I see which turns to be the Elixir Lemonade!

Inferno Tower is 8 inch burger (large buns, patty, cheese, tomato, lettuce, I think it has onions too and BBQ sauce), 6 pcs of Dragon Wings, Golden fries OR Nachos and Elixir Lemonade OR Rage Red Tea pitcher. Too bad their nachos was not available at that time so we have no choice but to get their Gold Fries instead.

Burger patty  TLO and BBQ sauce

The burger was actually good and the patty is thick enough and flavorful. The only thing that I didn't like is BBQ sauce; I don't really like BBQ sauce for burgers, I'd prefer Cheese sauce instead. Yosh managed to finished 3 slices of burger. I was able to eat just two because of the sauce; it made my head hurt a little. I just don't know why.

COB Gold Fries and Dragon Wings

What we enjoyed is their Golden Fries which is Chili fries. Crunchy and tasty; WIIIIN! Yosh liked the wings too but for me it was like okay lang.  If you're gonna check the Dragon Wings on their menu below, you'll see you have the option for BBQ or buffalo. But lady who took my order didn't ask and they served us buttered flavoured wings! The wings that we had didn't taste like BBQ or Buffalo. I. Just. Cant.

As for Elixir Lemonade, again, I was like okay lang. Had I known that the drinks in their Set menu are so-so, I would've ordered their Milkshakes instead. I find them cute inside the mason jar with some sweets on its side. Take note, their milkshakes cost PHP 79.00 only!

Aside from their Set menu, Clash of Burgers (COB) also serves normal-size burgers at very affordable price. They also have pasta, peka tenders and ribs. Below are their complete Menu.

Full Menu of COB

COB Pasig is located at 21 Dr Pilapil, Kapasigan Pasig City. Their second floor is now open and they can now accomodate more customers! You might also want to check their FB page HERE.

EO Flexwear Colors in Cinnamon Review

Wednesday, 2 November 2016
Header of  EO Flexwear Colors in Cinnamon Review

I got a new lens from EO again, yay! The one I've got is from their Flexwear Colors brand named Cinnamon which is a two-toned lens. I still love my Natural Brown, you can check my review here, but the main purpose of purchasing this one is to have a lens with smaller diameter.

I learned that my friend, Niel has bought a new lens from EO as well. He got Cinnamon and I was amazed how it blends well on his eyes. As per the color, it's not really noticeable but you can only tell that he is wearing a lens because of the roundness of his iris and slight enlargement effect. I got envious and plan to get one after the pay day and here it is!!

When I went to EO at Market! Market, I already have this feeling that I will not be able to get this at the same day just like what happened before but I got excited when the lady assisting me told me that my grade which is -4.00 was available, yay! This one costs 450.00 PHP which is much cheaper than Henna Brown and Natural Brown but the thing is this one is only good for 3 months BUT it's okay and I am fine with that.

Package of the Cinnamon Lens

Alright sooo, the packaging of this lens is the usual blister pack and they gave me a lens case which didn't happen when I got my Natural Brown and Henna Brown. The color is much lighter than my Natural Brown and has this dark rim to give you enough enlargement effect. I am just not sure of the diameter of this lens as I forgot to ask to the lady at store and it's not available on their website as well.

Below is the description of this brand on their website.

Flexwear Colors contact lenses let you change your eye color with lenses that also offer you comfort and the best value possible in a soft cosmetic lens. You want people to notice you and not just the color of your eyes. Because of this Flexwear Colors uses a tinting process to produce more natural, and realistic color changes.
Choose a variety of 2 tone and 3 tone lens variants– Charcoal (Gray), Coffee (Brown), Amethyst (Violet), Cinnamon (Brown), Peppermint (Green) and Ultramarine (Blue)
Lens Type: Three (3) Months disposable soft contact lenses
Package Details: Two (2) colored lenses immersed in buffered 0.9% saline solution
Material and % of content: 45% polymer (Methafilcon A)
Water % of content : 38%


Here's the lens in flesh.

It looks yellow to me, not brown. Lol

VERDICT:

For almost 10 hours that I used this lens, no itchiness and blurriness happened, please take note also that I have not use any lubricating solution or eyedrop the whole time. My eyes seem to be okay and didn't turn red after I remove it before going to sleep.

Will I recommend this lens? Yes. The diameter is just right and will give you enough enlargement that's good for everyday use. The color is not that "yellowish" once you wear it .


RATINGS:

Availability: ★★★★★

Enlargement Effect: ★★★☆☆

Natural Effect: ★★★★☆

Blending Effect: ★★★★☆

Comfort Level: ★★★★★
