Collab: $20 Makeup Challenge

It was my first time doing a collab and it was with my IG and blog buddy Fowlalpha also known for Chubbychicsdiary and this collab was originally done by My style Inside Out (before: FilipinoInsideOut) and Stash Matters (but since Fowlalpha and I were both Philippine-based we both agreed to get Philippine-brand makeups)

I used the current convertion of CAD to PHP rate


And here is what I bought for our “$20 Makeup Challenge Philippine Edition” (since we also agreed to pick a theme and we got: “Summer Theme” since it is summer already)

First i got this Belo Intensive Whitening BB Cream SPF 50 & PA++++ it has only one shade and it comes in “medium to deep”  and I was surprised that it is lightweight and also water-like texture and dries to natural matte finish  — I love it!


It did its job on concealing some minor facial redness I can even wear this alone. The shade is just perfect, it adjusts to your skin shade, non sticky nor greasy. This 50ml tube costs me Php349.75  (CAD 9.85)

Next I got something from Watsons and look for Ever Bilena  (yes, well known Filipino brand) been introduced to this brand when I was in my highschool days. I am into light makeup during this season because of the weather, so i grab something that will fit the budget and something that can multitask so this one were included into my basket


Evera lip and cheek tint. They have bigger one and it comes in a squeezable plastic tube container and costs Php135 (CAD 3.8) so i opt for the smaller one to fit the budget. I got the one with doe-foot like applicator and the shade looks lighter red. You can build up the color on your cheeks and on your lips depending on our preference, and this one costs me Php75 (CAD 2.11) now i got something for my lips and cheeks

For the eyes — this one put smile on my face. IMG_20160316_191042.jpg

Ever Bilena Pro Eye Color. A mascara on the side and eye liner on the other side! I love that it is handy and very easy to use. It costs me for only Php175 (CAD 4.93)

Next is something I couldn’t go without = a brow definer, so I got something that could fit my budget too. I got EB Advance Perfect Eye Brow in Dark Brown it is only for Php60 (CAD 1.69)


I didn’t find any eyeshadow that will fit the look, i want something light and it should be matte (for I love mattes!) So I end up heading to HBC and missed their ongoing sale! But since I was already there I said to my self that maybe I can find something what I needed and end up getting this blush (yes a blush but it is what I am looking for)


It has bit of shimmer but I liked this one better. It costs Php75 (CAD 2.11)

I think my purchases was over the $20 budget (if I only got the Belo BB Cream from Sample Room i would definitely slash the price to half but i didn’t get the chance though I still have 113point to consume from SR)

My total purchases: Php734.75 (CAD 20.69) I was over with 0.69!)

There you go, the look is complete with all of the items I got for this challenge. Thank you dear Fowlapha (known for Chubbychicsdiary) I look forward for more challenges this is fun and enjoyed doing this.

This month…

March 2016

I like that it is summer already! I want to do a lot of things under the heat of the sun, lay on the beach while snipping on my favorite smoothie.. swim under water and enjoy nature.. and most of all summer is my favorite time of the year cause it is time for fun and relaxing.. breathing fresh and stress-free..

I don’t like that I have still dry cough and colds for almost over a week now..

I want you to know that I think I am ready to forgive those people who have hurt me in the past, and I wanna say thank you too for making me stronger and making me a better person now..

I’ve planned to start regaining control of my life all over again. I want to make this year one of the best year of my life..

I want to say to someone special that you will always be the love of my life, thank you for being there for us – me and our daughter.. we may face a lot of trials and hindrances today but I know God will always be our guide to everything..
