Sephora x Guerlain Haul: First Impression

Hi~ Today I am gonna be doing a picture heavy post to show something that Im currently using at the moment. Its something that im really excited about as its my first time to try out this brand. Can you guess what it is? Lol

Parcel from Sephora PH (tightly wrapped in bubble wrap)

Sephora PH x Guerlain! Yup, the parcel contains loots from Guerlain. Im pretty sure you've all heard of the brand. Remember those uber popular meteorites that could highlight and brighten your face? Yep, its that brand. And its an expensive brand if I may say so (Im a cheapo haha)

So here's what I got: Guerlain Abeille Royal Mask, Kiss Kiss Lipstick and Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale Lotion/Toner. Ive only been using the items for a couple of days, enough to let me give my first impression about the products. I chose these items as Im currently trying to heal my skin (Korean Skin Care Routine) and I have very high hopes about these items being effective. I plan to use it for a month to see if it has any effects so do watch out for a detailed review soon.

Mask, Lipstick, Lotion/Toner and a free Guerlain Pouch! Yay

For now, Im just gonna pop this post with lots of photos about the products and a couple things here and there, as well as my initial reaction and whatnot for using the items for the past week.

Guerlain Abeille Royale Repairing Honey Mask

This is actually a mask that I use before I go to sleep, so its kinda similar to a sleeping pack I guess? Although the instruction says to use it for 2 to 3 times per week only, I used it daily. I didnt do a test patch but I havent experienced any bad reaction yet so I guess thats a good thing.

Can I say that the packaging is really pretty? Its made of glass so I reckon that its breakable, but still I cant help but admire the packaging and the engraving at the top.

This is the second product that I got. Its a red lipstick. I know I have way too many reds but a girl can never have enough red lippies.

Heres a comparison of how the color looks like with flash and without flash. Its a pretty red color but I dont find it too striking for a shade of red. Its definitely something I can wear everyday. Swatches soon!

Last item that I got is this toner/lotion. Lately Ive been breaking out due to stress and I need something similar to my trusted CosRX BHA A-Sol. Ive checked the ingredients and it isnt in any way similar to CosRX but Im hoping this will fix my current dull skin.

Packaging wise, its kinda breakable as its made of glass as well. But plus points for how it looks as its definitely one of the best packaging Ive ever seen.

And lastly, this free pouch from Guerlain is so pretty! Who doesnt love pink?? I love the pastel colors and the details on the handle. Im using it as a makeup pouch and its just so pretty :3


And there you go! My first experience with Guerlain and Sephora PH. I am really super happy I got the chance to experience this. Although its really quite pricey for my liking, but if the outcome is terrific then I might just splurge into buying more from Guerlain. But for now, Ill continue using the items and see how it goes after a month.

Review: Magnetic Nail Polish #60 from Born Pretty Store

I cant believe this post has been in my drafts for 3 years! HAHA. Seriously? Im not even sure if Magnetic Nail Polishes are still in today. Oh well, better late than never :D

Wayback 2014, magnetic nail polishes came to be. Im glad I was able to take part of this trend, as Born Pretty Store sent me this pretty nail polish to try out. I cant decide which color to choose as I love everything from the collection, so I settled for something dark in shade as I think the design would show up more in darker shades.

Oh well, excuse my nails as my application isnt really that great. And to be honest, I only managed to apply it on my left hand because you know how it is when you are used to using the right hand, the left hand pretty much is not working lol.

And since this is something Ive drafted years ago, I no longer have photos of the tool I used, but you can find more info about the product and the steps at Born Pretty Store. Enjoy the photos!

What do you think of this trend? I know its been 3 years but were you able to try this one out too?

Time flies so fast, and now its already March. I can already hear wedding bells ringing from afar, mainly with my friends and colleagues. Such event takes much preparation and you can never be too prepared, specially with your dress. Haven't found the perfect wedding dress yet? Let me help you with your choices.

If you're looking for the perfect outfit for the perfect day, then I've found the perfect shop - MillyBridal UK. Just a little bit about the company, Milly Bridal is a professional wedding & events dress design and manufacturing company located in China, establish and founded by Mr. Feng Yu in 2003. Their shop has a vast selection of different dresses in various colors and designs, depending on your theme. Worried about sizing and fitting? Think no more, as the dresses comes in various sizes so you'll surely find something for everyone.

I havent even thought about my own wedding, but playing around the website made me think of possible options for outfits in the future. Ive been browsing their collections of Petite Wedding Dresses    and I am so in love with basically everything! Here are a few of my top picks.

When I first looked thru the collections for the dresses, this was the very first thing that my eyes caught on. I am soooo in love with this outfit. Its just really very simple, but the lace design and the accent belt makes it so elegant and classy! And the cut of the dress is really very sophisticated as well. You can also wear this outfit to parties and prom.

Fancy yourself a beach wedding? Forget about the traditional beach wedding dresses and go bold with this intricately designed water inspired outfit! This whole look reminds me of an Ice Princess. Frozen, anyone? I really like the whole look, together with the hair style. If I decided to have a beach wedding, I'd definitely go for this look.

If youre into the traditional wedding, then this is something that you might wanna be interested with. The simple sweetheart cut is very pretty and accentuates the figure very nicely. I also love the lacey train on the gown and the detail at the bottom part. Any girl would love to have this outfit on her wedding day.

Vintage lover? Then this outfit is perfect for you. The whole look reminds me of Marilyn Monroe, specially the hairstyle. I love how simple the cut is but still manages to be so sophisticated. The satin style of the cloth makes it so classy, and with the right accessories, this would be the perfect vintage themed wedding outfit.

Aside from wedding dresses, MillyBridal also offers dresses for flower girls and bridesmaid dresses. And of course, to complete the whole look, you can also find the perfect wedding shoes from the shop! All these and more wedding outfits can be found at their shop.
