Cosmetics at the P88 Store

Monday, February 04, 2013

My husband and I were window shopping in Trinoma yesterday. We were going to have dinner with friends there but had time to go around the mall for a stroll (?). For some reason, I ended up in True Value looking for a new dog leash for my baby Mylo when I saw that a Japanese home store was connected at the back.

This store, I swear, is heaven. Everything at 88 bucks (around $2). I was so engrossed browsing the aisles and before I knew it, hubby was already calling me to tell me that they were already waiting for me at the restaurant. I suddenly remembered that I still haven't done my makeup (thinking I can always do my makeup at the ladies' lounge). And what do you know... I forgot my makeup kit at home.

There is a silver lining though, I get to test the makeup that they had at Saizen! LOL Another excuse to shop. I would have gone to the cosmetics department at Landmark but I just didn't have the time. The restaurant was on the opposite side of Landmark, and Saizen was just a few floors below the resto.


So, here it goes.

I did a makeup haul (& more). I promised myself to get only the necessary stuff I needed to at least look decent, but as I browsed through the cosmetics aisle, I just dumped everything I found interesting in my basket (the fact that I had a basket meant I really was in for a major haul).

Let me tell you first the products I got so I can put my face together:



























In no particular order:

1. LIP GLOSS -A frosted lip gloss that has no strong, cheap smell. A nice sheer pink color.

2. EYEBROW PENCIL (BROWN) -I love that this pencil doesn't get dull easily. Just by lightly applying the product on the brows gave a beautiful tint of brown.

3. BLUSH -Sure, more product ends up on the floor that on your brush, but hey, it did its job and it was a beautiful coral blush. I made the tiny brush work too. Just swirl on your cheeks instead of brushing back and forth.

4 & 5. FACE POWDER -I can say that this powder gave excellent coverage. A smooth powder that didn't cake at all. It even looked so much better after it set. It didn't feel heavy on the face too.

6. FALSE LASHES -These were the most decent ones they had and I honestly thought the lashes were pretty useless because they were really short. But after I put them on, they actually made my lashes thicker!

7. EYELINER -Very easy to control and doesn't smudge! Gives a nice clean black line.

8. EYELASH GLUE -I love that this glue dries black, and that it's true to its word that it can hold the lashes in place the whole day.

9. MASCARA -It didn't curl my lashes like it said on the packaging, but it did thicken my lashes and lengthened them.

This look cost PhP 792.00 ($19.30), not bad I would say. If I did end up in the cosmetics department at Landmark, I would have spent more than double that.


The most important thing is that I didn't have any allergic reaction to the makeup. There were quite a number of different brands of cosmetics there but I made sure that I chose the ones that were made in either Korea or Taiwan. I was also happy to learn that I didn't have trouble finding the right shade of face powder considering they only had 4 shades to choose from. Phew!

Now... Let me tell you all about the other extras I got! YAY!

1. WET TIP BUDS -This has got to be the best invention yet. I always keep cotton buds in my purse just in case of any smudges under the eyes. I would wet the buds and wipe the smudges away. But with these already pre-moistened buds, you can fix your makeup anytime anywhere! Love em!

2. & 10. EYELINER COAT -It claims to make any eyeliner "WaterPloof" (yes, it actually says that on the back). I haven't tried it yet, but I can't wait though. According to the instructions, you just layer it on top of your eyeliner and let it dry. Then if becomes smudge proof. I bought 2 incase it does work wonders! This one is made in Taiwan.

3. FALSE EYELASH CASE -Need I say more?

4. CLEAR EYELASH GLUE -I know I already got the black lash glue, but this made me curious too. I wonder if it'll be as good as Nichido? Hmm...

5. COSMETIC SCISSORS -I had me because it was pink.

6. MAKEUP CORRECTOR -Now this I have yet to try and review. It's supposed to remove smudges without disturbing the makeup that's underneath! Curious... Stay tuned!

7. EYEBROW PENCILS -Same as the brown one I used above, but these are black and dark brown.

8. LIP GLOSS -A lighter version of the shimmer gloss I used in the photo.

9. BLOTTING PAPER -Yes yes... Again, it had me because it's pink AND it's Hello Kitty. I don't think it does anything extra special.

All these extras amounted to PhP 880.00 ($21.46). I didn't really need the extras, but I couldn't resist. Watch out for my reviews on the key products soon. I just had to share this haul with you ladies as soon as possible.

Remember, just because I wasn't allergic to these cosmetics, doesn't mean you aren't too. Always, always, always test the cosmetics first before you buy. Oh wait... Sorry, these products do not have testers. So, I guess you'll just have to buy them at your own risk. Just being cautious ladies! Enjoy!
