Watsons' best beauty finds (less than Php 100 each!)

Inspired by Girltalk's thread, here's my favorites:

* NURSY BABY WIPES (Unscented)
Price: Php 80+ for 90 wipes
Why I love it : I use this after using Purederm cleansing tissues to thoroughly remove my makeup. The quality of the wipes is made of soft but thick material. This is also gentle to use on my baby's face.

* PUREDERM CLEANSING TISSUES/WIPES
Price: Php 29 for 30 sheets (1 pack)
Why I love it : Inexpensive yet does the job of removing my makeup (BB cream, powder foundation, concealer etc). I only use 1 sheet for the whole face.

* DOVE GO FRESH GRAPEFRUIT AND LEMONGRASS DEO
Price: Php 70+ for 20 grams
Why I love it: I LOVE the scent and it doesn't darken my pits. Nuff said!

* NIVEA ESSENTIAL CARE LIPBALM
Price: Php 70
Why I love it: Now on my 2nd tube. If you have super dry lips I highly recommend this!

* MARIONNAUD #38 brush
Price: Php 60+
Why I love it: Spoolie and eyebrow brush in one!

* MARIONNAUD #37 brush
Price: Php 80+
Why I love it: My favorite inexpensive crease brush.

* MAYBELLINE EYE & LIP MAKEUP REMOVER
Price: Php 99 for 40 ml
Why I love it: Effectively removes waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Posted my review HERE.

* NIVEA INTENSIVE MOISTURE BODY MILK
Price: Php 80+ for 125 ml
Why I love it: It has almond oil that moisturises my dry skin, I use this during nighttime. For daytime I'm a fan of their Extra Whitening Cell Repair Body Milk, been using it for more than 3 years already.

Review: Revlon CustomEyes Shadow and Liner

I'm so sorry this post is long overdue. I accidentally overlooked it, hence it still bears the old watermark from my website address.


Product Info from Revlon:
Easily create and customize the eye look you want with 4 shadows and 1 liner.
For dramatic eye popping looks like never before.



RETAIL PRICE: Php 625.00

WEIGHT: 5.67 grams

SHADES: Available in 6 gorgeous palettes
* Sweet Innocence
* Party Pops
* Naturally glamorous
* Rich Temptations
* Smokey Sexy
* Metallic Chic


PROS:
* packaging is slim and compact
* cute pattern on each of the eyeshadows
* the eyeshadows are mostly pigmented
* good staying power
* it has a diagram at the back of the palette showing you where to apply the eyeshadow shades (see pics)
* the dual ended applicator is so easy to use! The wider end for eyeshadow application and the pointed end for liner application.


CONS:
* i find the texture of the lighter shades kinda chalky



TIPS:
* for ladies with oily lids I suggest using an eye primer or base prior to eyeshadow application.


I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
Anyone who wants to try this.


OVERALL:
This is a really cute and travel friendly palette but I prefer the pigmentation and the staying power of their Colorstay Eyeshadow Palette.
