Green Polish and 'Carried Away' By A Cheap Price Tag

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

I am so excited to go on vacay tomorrow for Holy Week and I have been looking for the perfect color for my nails. I don't want to go for the usual neon nail polish color for summer so I resorted for fall colors instead.


I have been lusting for Olivia Wilde's green polish ever since it came out last fall, and finally I have a reason to buy it!


After endless research online, I learned from the internet that the nail polish color Olivia Wilde was wearing in that gorgeous ad was Revlon's "Posh".

I love Revlon, I think they have the sexiest, classic colors. Shades that can last long past their season.





Revlon Nail Enamel in Posh #571 (PhP 225.00)
I am so in love with this color! I am so happy I got it because I know I can keep using it no matter what season! Even though this enamel doesn't belong to Revlon's Top Speed line, it dries pretty fast even though I applied three layers. I didn't even apply a top coat on this one, and it just shines beautifully!

I was on my way to the check out counter in SM to pay for my polish and that's when I saw this:


I have always loved this scent. It's so sexy and girly! I was surprised that it was only priced at PhP 149.00 for a full sized shower gel. So I bought it.





All the way home I was so happy that I got a bargain for Bath & Body Works' Carried Away shower gel. Online they cost between PhP 350-400 so imagine how ecstatic I was!

When I got home, I looked at the bottle closely and read the label very well. That's when I realized that this is not from Bath & Body Works! It's an exact copy by Body Luxuries, a company I have never heard of before.








This is Bath & Body Work's original Carried Away Shower Gel:

Body Luxuries doesn't say where it is made, but I am guessing... China? Gosh. This is just so sad. But I decided to give it a try since I've already purchased it. I just hope it's safe, and that whatever ingredients that are printed in their label is true.

Yikes!

Anyway, no need to cry over spilled shower gel, it's all good!

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
