Goodbye, My Purple Points!

Dear Readers,

I will no longer be updating this beauty blog.  I've decided to create a lifestyle blog instead, although it's still in the works. I've come to realize that I have other passions in life that I wanted to write about and pour my creative juices into, aside from makeup and beauty stuff. 

So let this be my last post in My Purple Points.  I will still keep the blog for a year, in case of any future references. But for now, this is farewell.

Thank you for all who visited and continue to read my posts.  I will be posting the URL of my future blog soon.

Review: The Face Shop’s Face It Oil Cut Pore Powder Pact in NB23

Hey there, beauty friends!

I know I’ve been on hiatus for a while and most of the blog posts I have uploaded were mostly promotional materials.  That only meant one thing – I’m back to my normal “lawyering” work.  So that means I’m back to my busy schedule.  Sigh! 

But nevertheless, I’m back with a new review.  And I still find blogging as my way to de-stress.  If given a choice, I’d always gladly write about hair, or shoes, or lipsticks, rather than make tons of loan agreements. Ugh, I know, so boring! Sometimes though, I try to sneak in a few minutes to admire makeup online, like those I recently saw at ZALORA.  I didn’t know they have a beauty section and the wide array of gorgeous lipcolours at ZALORA are quite nice – and tempting. You should check them out. Haha!

So let’s get on with my review – this is actually one of the many The Face Shop products which I hoarded when I went to Seoul.  I tell you, it’s way cheaper in Korea, they offer more discounts, and they also give more freebies! I actually got this for 50% off than the regular price. Not bad, eh?

First things first -
Place bought: The Face Shop store in Seoul (particularly, in the Myeongdong area)
Price: in pesos, I only got this for around Php500-600.
Packaging: Light blue metallic compact, with mirror and puff.  It also comes with a transparent plastic cover to separate the puff from the powder itself.
Shade: NB23 (in MAC, I’m a NC30-35 and this is the shade closest to such)

Product description on the website says that it is an: 

"Oil-free compact adhering to the skin as light as air for clump-free make-up even after several touch-ups"

Review: Essence's Gel Liner in Miami's Ink

Eyeliners can either break or make your whole makeup look.  It usually completes your eye makeup, whatever shade you use.   Sometimes, on lazy days, wearing eyeliner alone will help enhance your eyes and distinguish it from your "wake-up" look. 

However, come the Holidays, you would want something fancier.  You know, something more than the usual range of black or brown shades.  Here's where this gel liner from Essence comes in.

Let's go to the specs, shall we?

Place bought: Essence stall at Watson's, SM Aura
Price: I think around Php300++.
Packaging: It's a gray glass pot.
Shade: Miami's Ink - it's a metallic or shimmery gray. 

Gray eyeliner? How about a shimmery and shiny eyeliner in "fifty shades" of gray?
