Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palette Sale

I decided to refrain from buying even a single makeup item next year, except BB creams, so  I’ll just look at these (and torture myself in the process) eyeshadow palettes that are currently on sale at UrbanDecay.com.

Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box, $20 (reg. price $30)

Don’t you just love Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box?  The color purple is all over it! And the packaging is so pretty. UD commissioned LA fashion illustrator Kime Buzzelli for the Shadow Box design.  Buzzelli is really making waves in the LA art scene.  She also collaborated with Vans for the Women’s Vans Sorry is for Suckers Tote Bag.

Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream

Thanks to Joeanne and Brad of Davao TLCshop Fab Finds, my favorite one-stop shop for Korean skin care and makeup items, I now have a tube of Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream. 🙂

I got the  smaller (20g) tube of M Perfect Cover BB Cream because the size is just perfect for travel and I know that even with its size, the tube is good for a couple of months.  Also, I chose No. 21 (lightest shade) even if I’m not fair-skinned.  I have oily skin that’s very acidic so I had to choose a lighter shade because most powders and bases leave a dark cast on my face a few minutes after application. The bright beige shade is a good match for my skin tone (update:  turns ashy in an hour or two, especially when the weather’s humid)

Davao TLCshop Fab Finds

I’m a fan of Korean and skin care makeup brands so I was super delighted when Joeanne, the owner of Davao TLCshop Fab Finds, contacted Ria and invited us to visit her store.

The store, located at Nova Tierra Village in Lanang, Davao City, is very near my place.  But even if you’re from the opposite side of the city, I say the trip is really worth it because Davao TLCshop Fab Finds carries lots of items from popular Korean skin care and makeup brands like Missha, Skin Food, Lioele, VOV, Tony Moly, Innisfree, and Nature Republic.  They also have collectibles  for Korean drama and kpop  fanatics.
