Wise Buys: Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer + Avon SuperExtend Mascara

2013 is yet another year of wise buys for me.  I think it was last year when I decided  to limit my makeup purchases to what I really need  (or was it in 2011?).  I’m not a makeup junkie anyway so not having a big makeup collection doesn’t really bother me at all. Nor do I envy those who have an cosmetic armoire filled with rows and rows of expensive products.

But there’s always a right time for a girl to add a few items to her makeup stash.

Early this year, I discarded my Maybelline mascara because I’ve been using it for more than 3 months.  It was my one and only mascara so I was  lucky when an Avon dealer offered to sell me the Avon SuperExtend Mascara (black)  for only P200.  And I’m glad I bought it as it’s great at lengthening my eyelashes.  Think Lancome Definicils kind of lengthening.   However, this mascara isn’t perfect because it is not the quick-dry type and has the tendency to clump if you apply too many coats.

e.l.f. Get The Look: Smokey Eyes

E.L.F. Get The Look Smokey Eyes

I have been wanting to try out e.l.f  cosmetics ever since I read a ton of reviews about it.  Consumers believe that most of their products deliver and of course, the price tag is really, really affordable.

So during a trip to Manila, I made sure I dropped by Watson’s  to purchase a couple of e.l.f.  cosmetic items (Watson’s do have branches here in Davao City but they don’t carry the brand).  I didn’t have anything in mind so I just decided to buy something I could use almost everyday.
