Klik Cracked Nail Polish: Review

I was walking around Landmark when I saw this local brand Klik carrying a whole line of crack nail polishes. Since it was pretty cheap, I decided to try it out. I only got one since I wasn't sure if the results would turn out to be okay. I got the one in purple.

(it dries up matte at first)
Here's how it actually looks after placing top coat

- cheap (PHP 24.75)
- locally available
- has a lot of colors to choose from
- 2 packaging sizes to choose from
- good staying power with top coat

- the cracks are not as sophisticated as I wanted them to be
- needs top coat

All in all, I think this is an okay product. Nothing special, though. If you want to create a nice nail art change without putting much effort (and budget) into creating it, then I highly recommend that you get one of these. Now would I re-purchase? Maybe.

Pure Beauty Super Brightening Eye Gel: Review

Hi everyone! I'm back with a review on a skin care product called Pure Beauty Super Brightening Eye Gel. I'm using the previous photo I took when I first bought it so the photos may look familiar to some of you. (I kind of threw away the product after I used it all up and forgot to take shots of it before doing so.)

please don't mind the lipstick on the photo. i won't talk about that product here.

Anyway, Pure Beauty is another Korean brand and I guess by now you'd know how pleased I am with Korean products. I decided to try this one out because I have really bad dark under eye circles + fine lines. Sadly, this product was not the solution I was looking for. And yes, I think this product is NOT WORTH IT.

- good tube type packaging
- nice smell
- good consistency (not sticky at all)
- good under eye moisturizer
- affordable
- available in most Watsons branches
- 15ml would definitely last you long

- did little, if not nothing for my dark circles and fine lines

I used this for quite a while (4-5 months). I apply it both during the day and night. I've used up the product and my friends claim it did something (little improvement) with my under eye problems but I'm not satisfied. Sadly, I won't be re-purchasing this product anymore. Ever since I've used this one up, I started using THEFACESHOP Wrinkle Stop Abyssine Eye Cream and the results are promising. I'll probably talk more about that product after using it some more.

NOTE: I'm pretty sure I took some shots of the tube and the product itself. Will try to find where I saved it and just update this post in the future. :)

Review: Baviphat FIberproof Curling Mascara

Hi guys! Happy new year to all of you! It's been quite a while since my last post and I know it's no use to find an excuse as to why I haven't been posting lately. Truth is, it was a combination of being busy... and lazy. Again, I apologize.

Anyway, I'm here to review a product I bought over at e-bay through BIGTOKYO. It's a mascara from a Korean brand called Baviphat. The product is called Fiberproof Curling Mascara in black. So yeah, here's my review:

love the blue shade for its packaging

- cheap
- volumizing
- separates my lashes pretty nicely
- good consistency

- doesn't hold the curl for long
- not available locally
- doesn't smell good

Overall, I think this is a good product. In fact, I use it everyday. I just don't think I'd buy another one just because I like Maybelline's Hypercurl Volumizing Waterproof Mascara compared to this one.
