Beauty box battle - august

Wednesday, August 24, 2016



Hey Curvies! Happy Wednesday! two more days and it's weekend again. Today's blog post is something that I haven't done in long while. I'm a huge fan of monthly beauty subscriptions boxes. In the past 3 years I've tried so many different subscription services and as of the moment I'm subscribed to  3 different boxes, which I'll be comparing today. IPSY, Birchbox and Play by Sephora . All 3 are monthly subscription box for only $10. Which is the best of them all?


IPSY - Subscribe here : bitly/ipsycurveella $10 --- Top 3

I've been subscribed to Ipsy for 3 years now and I really love this subscription box because they mix up full size and sample sizes plus a cute pouch. Ipsy has a rewards point system where you can get free products from reviewing/rating products and referring other subscriber. They also offer discounted make up sets everyday. Though Ipsy is favorite of mine. My August box is a huge NAH! specially compared to other ipsters that got way better products.

Play by Sephora  - Subscribe here : http://www.sephora.com/play $10  ---Top 1

Sephora as you all know is a high/branded make up store. About a year ago they introduced a $10 subscription service. Consists of 5 sample size products. This is actually just my 2nd box. I was on the waiting list for like 4 months. If you're interested to subscribe to Play by Sephora I would recommend signing up immediately in case there's a wait list. I know it's sample sizes but I really think that it is worth the $10 because everything are branded products. My August box is a huge YAY! I really think that I'm able to use everything in the box.

Birchbox - Subscribe here : https://www.birchbox.com $10 --- Top 2

I was subscribed to Birchbox for a whole year then I decided to stop and unsubscribe a few months ago because I found that most of the products are repeats and something that doesn't suit my needs but 2 months ago I decided to resubscribe and so far I'm loving it. My August box is both a Yay and Nay! just coz I'm not a fav of everything that's inside the box but worth wise it is totally reasonable.

#Lockitrevolution Kat Von D by influenster

Tuesday, August 23, 2016



Hey Curvies! Today it's going to be all about beauty. A few weeks ago Influenster sent me a box full of Kat Von D beauty new Lock it Revolution Collection. Influenster is a great site to read on if you want to search on a beauty product before you buy it. Influenster also has a program for social media influencers where they send out products for FREE to try out and review. I totally recommend for you to sign up and start getting free products. 

I was able to try out 2 shades of the Lock it Concealer Warm and Neutral both worked out great for my under eyes, totally full coverage and great for highlighting. Along with the concealer I used the Lock it edge concealer brush, both perfectly worked out together but to be honest if you own a beauty blender, I don't see the need to invest on the concealer brush. 

I also tried out the Kat Von D Lock it Setting Powder in Translucent. I have a very oily face and this powder kept me matte for like 8 hours under Vegas heat. I'm all for it, it works best to set and bake. The Lock it Setting Powder Brush is you guys a total game changer. It is seriously the softest brush that I've ever used. Softer than Sigma or Luxie brushes. The powder and the brush together I would say are worth it to invest in coz you really get the value of what you paying for.

cute casual bts

Saturday, August 20, 2016


Hey Curvies! How you guys been? I know I haven't posted in awhile but yah I'm back. We're going for a really casual outfit today. Something casual but still on the trendy stylish side that everybody can wear around and it's also school appropriate outfit. I totally envy the teens that go to school here in America, I mean you get to dress up everyday,show whatever style you have and look cute everyday. But you know I can't imagine the stress that you go through everyday to think about what to wear to school. Well of course all thoughts coming from a girl who wore uniform to school everyday.lol 

Well as you all know I grew up in the Philippines so all through out my school life I wore school uniform everyday. I swear the only day we get to dress up are for, school programs, christmas party and farewell party. That's it! usually those days people really dress for the best. I  miss those school days tho.

bts and patches

Monday, August 15, 2016


Hey Curvies! Happy Monday! I'm pretty sure some of you started school already, how was your 1st day? For those who hasn't started, did you go school shopping yet? Either way Today I have a really cool and comfy Back to School outfit inspiration for you.

Have you noticed that patches are everywhere these days? It's like living in the early 2000's again. I can't deny it , I'm actually hooked with it and I've been buying everything with patches. Just like this dress. It's a very casual airy dress with a pop of cute patches. Also an easy trick to make a sleeveless dress school appropriate, layer it on a simple tee just like this one. There you go one easy,comfy and cute school outfit!
