Lenovo Launches New Phone and Tab with Forever 21

Good evening ladies,

Last Saturday, we got to join the launch of Lenovo's newest phone and tab at SM Mall of Asia.

The event was opened by the Climax Band who serenaded us with songs from Maroon 5, Bruno Mars and others. A lot of shoppers stopped to dance and sing to their songs, for a while the event turned into a live mall concert. 

It was an exclusive event where media people and bloggers alike were invited. The event not only introduced us to the two new addition to Lenovo's PC Plus lineup but also introduced us to it's partnership with Forver 21. The partnership  is in tandem with Lenovo’s strategy of attacking today’s young consumer market by banking on the fashion brand’s reputation as an authority on fashion and the go-to retailer for the latest trends and must-have styles  

The event hosts, KC Montero and Joyce Pring were also sporting clothes from Forever 21 and demonstrated to us the awesome camera ability of Lenovo's S850.

And of course, what's a show without the DJ, the music, and the dancers. :)

Both phone and tab come in many colors to suite all and any style you sport. A fashion show was also held communicating Lenovo’s position as a youth-centric brand.So let's see the phone's edge over other smartphones out there:

 This lucky guy  took home the S850. I was seriously aiming to get that phone. 

While this man was able to take home the A8-50.

Now for those of you who're like me, scouting for a new smartphone and are seriously considering buying this one, here's a great news from Lenovo and Forever 21. They have 2 promos going on:

So there you have it. Are you considering buying this smartphone, I know I have. (LIZ)

L.A. Colors Jumbo Eye Pencil

Hey guys!

Sharing my thoughts on these products...
L.A. Colors Jumbo Eye Pencils in Sunglasses and Sea Shells
This is Php 119.00 each.

I learned about this product online when I read a blog post review about it. I thought it was worth a try... that it would be a nice eye shadow base especially the black one for smokey eyes.

The L.A. Colors Jumbo Eye Pencils are very affordable and also portable.

Here's Sunglasses (black).

And here's Sea Shell (white).

Info from the website:


Skip the traditional powder eyeshadow and try a jumbo eyeshadow pencil. It allows you to use as an eyeliner for bold lines or blend out for a subtle effect. Display comes complete with dual sharpener for easy sharpening.

Swatches on hand

As you can see, they are both very, very pigmented. It glides smoothly on skin so applying and blending is easy!

Here's how it looks when I apply it on my lips together

It blends well.

But as you can see, it easily creases. Especially when my lids get oily after a couple of hours.

Translucent powder helps but my lids are just too oily. It doesn't stay long at all. Probably 2 hours tops. :(

I tried using it on top of eye shadow too.

I blend it with a powder eyeshadow.

I even top it off with more. LOL (Yeah, the copper doesn't really do well with the initial look. Haha!)

And I just add some black pencil liner on my waterline and apply mascara to finish the look.

This lasted longer than when worn alone. I guess it only started creasing around 3-4 hours. Which is still early than I expected. The result is still the same even with eye shadow primer (I used my Art Deco Eyeshadow Base). *sigh*

Me with the eye makeup

 I'm actually disappointed on these since the review I saw was a positive one. I guess my lids are just very oily. Oh well. :(

 Have you tried these yet? Did they crease on you too or did they work great on your lids?

Review : Shiseido Sheer and Perfect Foundation

Hey loves!

Sharing a review of one of the gifts my sister gave me when she last visited from Australia.

It's the Shiseido Sheer and Perfect Foundation

The shade is in O60 or Natural Deep Ochre.

So below are pictures of the box (for info):

The price of a bottle is Php 2,200.00.

Back of the bottle
The 30ml bottle has a shelf life of 2 years. This is available in 18 shades.

More info from the website:

Sheer and Perfect Foundation cancels out the appearance of redness, blemishes and visible pores without concealing skin’s natural beauty. Skin looks fresh and glows with sheer perfection.
  • Oil-free
  • Long-lasting wear with all day hydration
  • Silky-smooth without shine or stickiness
  • 18 shades
Formulated with Reflect & Fit Powder – 3 types of optical powder complex that cancels out uneven coloration:
  • Green Powder cancels redness and blemishes
  • Blue Powder cancels dark spots and circles
  • White Powder cancels visible pores
I like the plastic bottle. It's light and non-bulky—perfect for on-the-go people and those who travel. I carried it with me during my 3 week vacation out-of-the country.

Here's a swatch

When slightly smudged

The shade is very warm and it's actually a little darker than my skin. It's quite watery and light too so applying it all over your face is quite easy.

My bare cheeks

Swatched on my cheeks

When blended

I love that it does everything that it promised. It's lightweight, it is long-lasting—it can stay the whole day but I need to blot every now and then (probably every 4 hours) because of my oily skin, I encountered no stickiness, no caking, and it also has a soft, sort of dewy, fresh finish that gives you a certain glow. I like it!

It evened out my skin and it somehow concealed some of my blemishes, pores, dark spots and redness. Only some because it's quite sheer... probably light-medium coverage. But as you can see on the picture, it really made a difference in making my skin look more even. I still need to cover up many of my dark scars, especially on the jaw line. 

It really seems like it's such a good product after reading how I described it. Well, it actually is. I really like it. If you were to ask me what feature I like the most about it, it would probably be how light it is on skin. It feels like you aren't wearing makeup at all! Your skin can breathe! It's so lightweight but it gives coverage and lasts a long while!

What I LIKE:

- Comes in 18 shades
- Lightweight
- Easy to apply
- Locally available
- Long-lasting
- Conceals blemishes, pores, redness
- No stickiness
- Packaging
 - Oil-free
- Has SPF15
- No caking
- No breakouts
- Light to medium coverage


- The price is too expensive (well at least for me)

Would I repurchase?
I probably won't. I guess I still prefer heavier coverage. It's not the product's fault since it is meant to be sheer. I guess I just have too many blemishes I want to hide for now so I won't be getting this for some time. But I definitely recommend this to those with better skin condition than I do. I bet you'd look radiant wearing this! :D

Have you tried this foundation from Shiseido yet? Do you know of other foundations that are like this?

NOTD : Sei Bella Nail Color in Peach Frost

Hey loves!

One of the products I got when I visited my relatives in LA is this nail polish.

Sei Bella Nail Color

The brand was unknown to me 'til it was given to me by my cousin (Thanks, Ate E). 

The shade is Peach Frost.
I got more excited to try it out when I saw that the shade was peach—a favorite color of mine. :D

Some info on the box

Here's the nail polish bottle.

And more pictures of my nails with the polish.

It blends with my warm skin tone even if it's light and frosted. It looks very elegant and clean. It looks good alone but I think it would look better with a french tip or a nail art! Any design you can suggest for me to try? :)
