Take Me Home...

These cute beagles are for sale
They are bothe females, 2 months old, very cuddly and playful =)

They are pure bred beagles, they have complete papers to prove that. Both are well taken cared of like a baby. They are de wormed and have shots appropriate for their age. Their mom is my pet, they are 5 in all. Other siblings already found a home.

Being a mom and the treasurer of the household, budgeting has always been one of my priorities. I'm constantly on the lookout for value-for-money stuff be it things for the home, clothes, shoes, toys and what-nots, and of course not to forget---makeup!

On a wet weekend I still managed to go malling (the mall rat in me). Walking, walking, walking and I saw HBC, I went inside and browsed through the merchandise and a makeup line named Krisanne Color Collection tickled my curiosity and I zeroed in on the blush. It's called Shimmer Blush and it comes in 2 shades Sunset Party and Sunrise Walk. It has this graduating effect of shades (of pink and of peach respectively) . I tried it...not bad! For the price and the packaging it's actually a steal.

*price -- dirt-cheap at 142PhP (~$3 approx)
*in flattering shades
*nice color payoff
*not powdery
*not really shimmery ( which is actually a pro for me)
*nice packaging (magnetized closure..beat that!), quality of plastic looks easy to break though
*has spf of 15
*contains vitamins A, C & E (as indicated)
*brush is actually kinda soft & useable which folds and unfolds if you prefer a wider brush (call it innovation)

*for P142??.....NONE! I can't complaint

Finding a product like this..I can't help but go...MWAHAHAHHA!!! you know, with that devlish tone =)

PS. As for the staying power, I'll have to post an update for that ^-^

How about you, any cheap discoveries lately?
