Pretty Little Things : September Favorites
I have got to learn how to apply red lipsticks perfectly haha, or at least purchase a red lip liner immediately. Any suggestions of good brands I should try? :) It is already October and I am very excited to share with you some DIY entries I prepared for Halloween. Even though this holiday frightens the life out of me, I still like it because it is one day that when we can all play dress up in costumes together. But before getting into the Halloween mood, let me show you the things I that I have been loving for the month of September. I knew I was getting a couple of gift boxes last month so I told myself not buy anything. Well that didn’t go too well :)
Kpalette Eye Liner, Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter, Etude House Color Pop Nail Polish, Mac Viva Glam 1 Lipstick, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer<
1. K-palette eye liner – I found my holy grail eye liner pen. It doesn’t smudge at all and it lasts for a very long time on me.
2. Watt’s Up Benefit Highlighter Travel Size – This was a gift to me by a fellow blogger. I thought its color and its size are very cute and I have been using it regularly lately.
3. Etude House Nail Polish Color POP – Another gift given to me. Its consistency is thick and it is very rich in color, which really makes this nail polish pop when worn. I’m excited to show you a nail art using this color soon :)
4. Mac Lipstick in Viva Glam I – This is the first red lipstick that I ever purchased months ago, and I really really like it. It’s a dark matte red color that is a very classic and wearable.
5. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – This concealer is now a part of my make up routune. It is very light weight, has medium coverage, but brightens your under eyes very well.
Beauty Formulas Cleansing Wipes, Maybelline Make Up Remover, St. Ives Apricot Scrub
Here are some good drugstore finds :
6. Beauty Formula Cleansing Wipes – I am one of those people who are sometimes too lazy to wash their face every night. If you are like me, this can be your best friend. I tried a couple of different cleansing wipes brands that are available here and so far this is my favorite.
7. Maybelline Eye Make Up Remover – This was recommended to me by another beauty blogger and I’m glad I bought it. There’s not a lot of good drugstore make up remover here in the country. I use this to remove make up around my eyes especially when my facial wipes are not enough.
8. St. Ives Facial Scrub – It is just as nice as its body scrub version and very inexpensive.
Charles and Keith Brown Bag
9. Charles & Keith Bag – I dont see myself as a “bag person”. I know a lot of girls who own millions of bags in their closet and I always envy them for have such a nice huge collection. But if it comes down into choosing between clothes vs bags I would choose clothes right away. This is the current one that I am loving. I always carry a small bag and I wanted something shabby chic and very simple this month.
Forever 21 gold necklace, rhinestone drop down earrings
10. Forever 21 necklace & long earrings – I hauled this a couple of months ago during the F21 sale. I’m also wearing it on my selfie pic above :)
Pop Tarts Strawberry, Bunheads TV Show, Candy Crush Game<
My random favorites :
11. Snack : Pop Tart – One of the hardest things I have to do everyday is to stop myself from grabing a pop tart and eat it. I just love it so much.
12. TV show / movie : Bunheads – I’m assuming that not a lot of people enjoyed this show because it didnt get renewed for another season :( Its not a strong show, there are certain characters that I didn’t like, but in the end its a good show to watch. It’s not the same as the usual popular shows nowadays. It’s more laid back and the story lines are bit slower, but somehow I like it that way. I thought it was refreshing to see something different and the ballerina outfits are cute.
13. App : Candy Crush Game – I click this game on my phone and time just suddenly flies. I am currently stuck at level 102. I don’t like to start purchasing “lives / extra turns” or ask for it from my facebook friends because I’m afraid that if I start asking I will never stop asking and they may delete me from their friend list haha.
That’s it for today ladies! Hope you enjoyed browsing these items. Have a great October ahead of you! :)
Pictures that are not mine : candy crush , bunheads
Great list! I think the necklace is very nice.. I'm pop tarts lover also..:)
I love your make up bag! Where did you buy it? I'm also loving your Charles & Keith bag — how come I didn't see this design while looking at their bag collection? I end up buying a wallet instead *cries* Did you buy this online? (;
I love you selca here — looking fresh and pretty <3
i love the earrings!! its so funny that i collect earrings but i don't really wear most of them that much, hehe. great list you have here.

That Charles & Keith Bag is gorgeous! I want to try the Nars Creamy concealer, but it's always out of stock which sucks! :( I can't wait to see the nail art post with you using that polish. :) Such a lovely post :)

That lipstick color looks great on you! Good hue. And I think I'll have to give that eyeliner a try.
The bag is adorable! I think it'd look great with endless summer outfits! I want a straw bag too, I regret not getting the one I saw in F21 last year >< If you find a good lip liner please share with us!
lately, I've been really in-love with etude products and I don't know why! :)
I'm dying to try that NARS concealer, it sounds great! xx
Fernanda | Ferdie's Beauty Finds
Everything looks gorgeous! I love that nail polish shade.
So pretty, Shayne! And I'm so excited to see your swatch of the nail polish. Is the Color Pop line available here already? :)
Good for you, red lippies suit on you well, :D I prefer orangey-red cause it fits my skin tone, they say. :)
I'm stucked on level 89 (if I'm not mistaken) on Candy crush. :/ I hate that I don't have much time to play the game anymore :(
love the bag and St. Ives scrub is always present in my bathroom (actually our because it's a shared bathroom) and there's also this time, I think last qtr of 2012 that me and my pamankins got addicted to pop tarts that everytime we watch movie we have one box each in our laps :)
Maybelline makeup remover is nice ^^ I'm glad you like the nail polish :D oh bun heads was my favorite it always made me laugh T_T I love Michelle and the four girls too much and their boys too haha too bad it didn't get renewed but the sad thing is fans didn't know whether they want to renew or cancel the show cause there's just no word about it :/ Michelle was amazing though
I have the same exact love/hate relationship with Poptarts! The s'mores flavored ones get me every time..
Great favorites! I really like the Benefit Watt's Up! highlighter too! I got it in a birthday gift set from Sephora and I like the creamy consistency :) I've been wanting to try out that eyeliner for sometime! I may have to pick it up! ^^
I love that coach bag!!!
xx Easy Outfits, by Pip
Your blog is definitely one of my favorites now! I love all of your pictures, they are so feminine and cute. Amazing favorites :) i would love to try that liner.
I watched Bunheads too! I like the vibe of the show. The music, dances, outfits and sets feels like a sunny summer day in the countryside.
I don't have one of your current favorites, but the thing that I notice is that, you are so beautiful in your selfie picture! Love it. Oh, also the earrings babe!
I wish Halloween was celebrated more in Australia. T_T
I'm addicted to this cheap version of Pop Tarts I've found over here in discount stores. xD The chocolate ones, specifically. Don't let myself buy them too often, because otherwise I'd just eat them constantly.
That red lipstick is such a gorgeous colour! I'm so scared of wearing red lipstick! I'm so used to wearing pinks and nudes! But that red one may just end up in my collection soon… :L
Love the red lippie sis! You look sooo gorgeous <3 Btw, the St. Ives apricot scrub is also my fave :)
Your favourites are amazing!!
I want to get a new MAC lipstick. I'm thinking about rebel but…I don't know. I wanted a nice bold colour for winter.
And that concealer! I've heard really amazing things about him :3 Sad that we don't have NARS counters here T__T
And that highlighter is amazing. I have a baby version too. I'm seriously thinking about getting a full-size version :3
Please take care! Have a nice day!*
You rock the red lipstick!
Those earrings are gorgeous too :)
Funny you're asking for a new red lipstick, as I just posted about my favorite red lipstick ever!!! By Chanel Rouge Allure :) I love the Charles & Keith bag btw, my oh my. And almost anything accessory-wise by Forever 21 is awesome, hihi. It's my favorite part of the store.. the accessories! Thank you for sharing, Hazel.xxx
I also received the same highlighter as a gift and almost never worn it. You make me want to try it out more
Great post!thank you for your sweet comment on my blog.

Stephanie | fashion and tea

I love everything! esp the st.ives scrub :)
thanks melgie! *gives a pop tart* :)
hi anne <3 looks like we have similar taste in bags and purses. the make up bag is from F21 and the Charles and Keith bag i bought from their shop in one of our malls here. if i am not mistaken the sales lady said it came out last last month. were usually late on products update here ^^ do they have a wallet version of this bag? :) thank you <3
hahaha :D it happens to me naman with long dangling earrings. i dont wear them as often as i should and i keep buying them. i have an odd fear that it will reap off my ears someday lol
thank you lucy <3 i hope you get a chance to grab the concealer. its very nice. in slowly getting popular... maybe thats why its sold out :(
thank you E, yup i can highly recommend it :) ill probably post a review soon :)
im glad you like it suki <3 i actually didn't expect a lot would like that bag. i thought it was too simple, but like you im really attracted to straw bags lol. like it that it reminds me of the beach ^^ will do thank you suki :)

Congrats that you learned to apply lipstick, yes a lipliner is really helpful :) And I´m in love with this super cute bag!

I love Bunheads!!!!! I absolutely loved that show, I thought it was so good and interesting, I was really sad to hear it got cancelled. These products look great, I love seeing favorites posts. As for red lipsticks, I recently purchased Lancome's Rouge in Love lipstick in 181 and it is so nice, It lasts a long time and is really pigmented! Red lipstick looks really good on you!
I have the k-palette too and I loved it! Its my HG eyeliner ever ^_~ BTW, you look so pretty on the selca, skin is super flawless ^_~
Totally love this red lipstick on you! One of my favorites that work awesome on its own is Lime Crime Velvetine in red velvet! Its amazing!
will check out the benefit highlighter! need a replacement for my smashbox one :)
Hi sweety, I really like posts like these, its always great to hear whats good on the beauty front. Loving the red lippie and the pretty nail shade. the concealer sounds excellent. I need to try those cleansing wipes and the bag is so chic. Have a wonderful weekend doll!
incredible, my dear
Red lipstick is a must for us:) have you tried cover girl:)
Hello! You take very lovely pictures: clear, crisp, and organized.
I remember when I first saw the ad years ago for Viva Glam I. The model was Ru Paul and I couldn't believe that Ru was a man because he just looked so glamorous!
Oh, and lovely earrings by the way. =)
thank you rena <3 sure!
thank you <3 im glad you like it sarah :)
thanks lisa! <33
thanks rosie :)
happy to see someone like that concealer too :) its really good but underestimated ^^
i havent tried it but i heard that the taylor swift lipstick is quite good :D
thank you dez :) is it the brand that has really cute unicorn packaging? ^^
thank you sammy <3 you too!
hi angel! :) its very creamy and the color is nice i think its something that you might like :)
thank you <3 and welcome to my blog! i had to google ru paul ^^super surprised on his pics, omg thats a great transformation :)
thank you sis <33
thank you francesca <33 im not very surprised that you like bunheads somehow i feel like the show is very you haha.will check out that color. lancome lipsticks are very creamy and i like them. i just hat eit that the lipsticks are in numbers kinda difficult to remember which is which lol :P
That red shade of lippie is perfect on you.
Love how the red lips look on you! I always manage to smudge it seconds after I apply it :(
Looking gorgeous girl. Those earrings look pretty on you. I've been using Rimmel lip liner for nearly 5 years and I love it. I love your bag, it's very sheek. Nice selection you have there.

Great post ;)
I love Nars makeup and watt's up! I really liked Bunheads too, I was disappointed they didn't get a second season!
The pouch is lovely and the pop tart looks so delicious that I feel like grabbing them too. Ooh… It's a good thing there are many people playing candycrush in my country. I know what you mean by being annoying to frenz asking for lives. I have a steady group of CC frenz who would often request for lives and so I would know whom to request for when my lives go out. I'm at 417 now and super stuck for weeks.
K-palette has an eyeliner with pink packaging? Ahhh I've only ever seen the black one when I last went to Japan! :P I've been interested in the benefit highlighter too, guess I'll have to check it out soon! :)
You're so pretty ! I've never worn a true red lipstick, but I should try because you look gorgeous !
Choosing between bags and clothes is so hard…
Heheheh I too need to invest in a lip liner! Thank yu for reminding me. I was thinking of going for a MAC one since my current favorite red lippy is by them so why not. Plus I do like their quality. I saw that Charles and Keith bag and just died. I seriously adore that store and every time I land at Singapore airport (which is not nearly enough as I'd like) I have to buy something from them! Usually one or two pairs of shoes! And candy crush! Ahhhh I'm obsessed! I had to pay for tone of those things once or twice now because it is impossible to complete a level without them for me anyway! I don't mind asking my friends for lives and stuff, most of my FB peeps now play this game so I always ask the same people who ask me for stuff LOL!
thank you! :)
happens to me too haha ^^ thank you <3
thanks you naaj :) will check on the rimmerl lip liners <33
lets hope that they can come up with some new show that has the same vibe as bunheads ^^ thank you lauren for dropping by :)
OMG 417! tips please ^^ i must gather up a group of friends for request life purpose too haha :D thank you jo <3
from what i've heard its a new packaging for their 24 hour tatoo ^^ im not sure if this was the old one or this is the most recent package design lol. thank you jo-ann :)
aw thank you mushi <33
hahaha must find friends like that! :) im also thinking of the same thing. ill probably get beet or cherry for the red lip liner color from mac. when you do get one pls post a review on it ^^ would be very helpful. thank you sonia <3
Lovely choices you made! I love red lipstick and it really looks good on you. The earrings you are wearing are very beautiful and classy.
I'm a huge fan of Bunheads! I love it so much! And those strawberry poptarts seem really delicious, but I don't think we have those things around here…
I would love to know about the DIY remedy for broken eyeshadow! Thank you
thank you! ^^ i can post a DIY hopefully soon or you can google it online :) you will only need to use few drops of alcohol and a spoon :D i hope that helps :)
I'm your newest follower !!!
Viva Glam I, wow. I want it.
thank you for following marsha and welcome to my blog! <3
hi rae! its a nice shade of red :) i highly recommend it :)
You are so beautiful!:D I love your whole make up look in the first photo! and I have a lot of the same items from your favorites!:D ahaha, Is the nars creamy concealer really good for undereyes? does it settle into fine lines?:)
Omg, bunheads didn't get renewed?:(
You have such a lovely, attention grabbing blog! I love it!:D You've just gained another new follower!:D Just to be sure, what nationality are you?:) Spanish?:)
♥ Charms |my ∞ fashion confession
Ooh I wanna try that K-palette eyeliner. Been hearing great stuff about their products. Baka yun na yung answer sa oily lids ko. :)
Btw, I love your look, very glam! :)
aww thank you charmaine, i really appreciate it! im from the Philippines :) im glad to know we have similar taste :D that was my main concern when i was looking for an under eye concealer, it does settle into fine lines sometimes, but i learned that if I apply the concealer before my liquid foundation and set it with a translucent powder it does not settle into fine lines :) i hope that info helps :D
i think it can work for you :) i also have oily eye lids and it did not smudge, hope you can get a hold of it helen :)
Filipino ka pala!xD I thought you were Spanish kasi I mixed up the comment box with the other blog I was following! In their comment box, the instructions and everything was in Spanish!xD
I don't use foundation, just concealer because I have such dark under eye circles >.< do you think it'll still work and not settle into fine lines without foundation?:) ahaha, I'm still looking for a good under eye concealer.
hahaha ^^ yup, im not sure, I will try wearing it today with out the foundation :P but i think as long as you set it with a powder it can work. I was scouting for good under eye concealers too. So far the good ones that I like are nars – very hydrating / mac stufio fix – bit drying but nice coverage / collection concealer (inexpensive, really nice coverage) you might like them :)
If you ever come across Inglot, you should def check it out:) Affordable and highly pigmented eyeshadows :))
Glad that you like my pictures, means a lot! Thank you sweetie :))
Amazing photo of you! And I love MAC lipliners :D
thank you karla :) yes i noticed you talked about it in one of your blog posts :D we dont have it here but if i find a way to try it i would <3
That make up bag is SOO cute, love your blog xo
Those earrings are adorable! I love Maybellines makeup remover and the St. Ives Scrub too!
thanks hannah! welcome to my blog :)
oh nice! :) they are pretty good drugstore products :) thanks sis!
Great post! I love the makeup products and the earrings are so pretty!
thanks amelie! :)
Hi Shayne. Love all of these suggestions you made. Thanks
