No one was home earlier today. The kids were out. Vinny flew to Singapore for the Laneway music festival. Claudia was having lunch with her grandparents and she had plans after lunch.
I didn’t want to be home alone and I also wanted to get out of the house. I called up my sparring partner Roxanne and asked her to have lunch with me. Luckily, she was home and just vegging. yay!
While we were having lunch she told me about her ‘problem’ that she was dealing with as of the moment. She is leaving for the U.S. in 2 weeks and the flat iron for her hair is 220 volts. She needed a 110 volts to use in the U.S. She was na taranta already.
Ang laki ng problema nya.
I told her that we will drop by Watson’s in SM after lunch and look for a 110 volts flat iron for her hair. #firstworldproblems.
We had such a good lunch (Wildflour, Salcedo Village) (yes, again!), talking about life per se. And I’m glad there is someone I can talk to and be comfortable with. And someone I can trust with my life.
So, we went to Watson’s in SM to look for her 110 volts flat iron for her hair. That was the first thing we looked for when we got there. It took her a long time to choose between Philips or Babyliss. Both are good and both were on sale. While she was choosing and deciding which to get I went around.
And yes, your guess is as good as mine. I picked up a few items. And this is all Roxanne’s fault ’cause it took her a long time to decide. She ended up getting the Philips brand only because the color is pink.
The first counter that I made halungkat was BYS. I like BYS. If you’re lucky you can get a good find.
The first item I put inside my basket were these 2 metallic eye make up palettes.
I swatch it and it’s super metallic and pigmented. Here’s a swatch that I did when I got home. Love it.
I also picked up their gel face primer. I like gel face primer. It has a smooth finish and it makes your make up easier to blend.
I also picked up their contour stick
I went to L’Oreal counter and checked it out. Good news the Infallible Pro Matte foundation will be available here already by June this year. Yay. My other favorite foundation their True Match has a new packaging. I picked up 2 shades because I was not sure if they change the shades in their new packaging. In the old packaging I am N4 Nude Beige. I picked up 62 Gold Porcelain and N3 Nude Vanilla
And guess what? Their eye shadow La Palette Nude is already available here. I don’t know how long it has been here but it is available already.
I picked up both palettes. The La Palette Nude in Beige and La Palette Nude in Rose
Isn’t it so pretty?
I passed by the counter of Catrice. Catrice is one of my favorite drugstore brands.
How cute is this? And the shades looked so nice too.
I was so shocked to see Sleek in Watson’s. I didn’t know that Sleek is available here already. I freaked out. Sleek is a good drugstore brand and I went crazy. I picked up a few palettes.

Sleek is a good brand. I was so confused when I was there ’cause there were a lot to choose from. They had everything from foundations, to highlighters, etc. I am definitely going back to pick up more.
I also picked up a lot of nail polish. I am really into orange, burnt orange and terra cotta shade these days.
BYS – matte
Give me a few days to try these products and definitely I am going to post a review. But I know already these items I picked up are good ’cause I have tried these brands already and I like it.
