The Body Shop Geisha Doll Lip & Cheek Stain [Holiday 2014]

One day, I received a cute little present wrapped Tsutsumi-style. It looks like a mini lunch box, doesn't it?


A cutesy geisha-inspired lip & cheek stain would have looked like it came from a Japanese beauty brand, but wait...it's from The Body Shop! Oh wow! Just wow. I'm used to The Body Shop having sleek and simple as their signature look, but this has to be the cutest packaging the brand has came up with!


This season, our iconic Lip & Cheek Stain comes in a new red shade sprinkled with golden glitter and the cutest special edition packaging. This dual-purpose liquid stain gives a natural-looking, rosy glow to lips and cheeks.
  • For lips and cheeks
  • Natural-looking color
  • Cute special edition doll packaging
  • Enriched with  Community Fair Trade Marula Oil

Ingredients:


This special edition lip & cheek stain gives value for money since it contains 28ml of product! The regular Lip & Cheek Stain comes with only 8ml of product in it.


Did I already mention that it comes with the cutest packaging? Geisha doll's bun is actually the doe-foot applicator.

Swatches:


The tint itself is red with gold shimmer. Take note that it's red, and it doesn't turn pink or peach. Red is a nice color for winter (as for our case, the holidays) since it warms up the skin instantly.

On my cheeks:


The shimmer isn't glittery at all once applied, it just gives you a nice glow sans highlighter. It blends easily and won't end up streaky on your face. It lasts really long, too.

On my lips:

Bare lips

With Lip & Cheek Doll

On my lips, it gives a reddish, just-bitten stain.


Here, I'm wearing The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream and the Geisha Doll Lip & Cheek Stain. This lip & cheek stain has no weird scent or taste, didn't cause me breakouts, and lasts all day! I would only wish to use this all up, since it contains a LOT of product in it! I love it and I wouldn't want it to go to waste.

Check out this cute holiday must-have from The Body Shop! I'm sure your kikay girl friends would squeal with delight when they see this inside their Christmas stockings... because I sure did. Haha :D

Price: P995.00
Available at The Body Shop stores nationwide

Belle de Jour Power Planner 2015 + ALL Coupons Inside!

I've been a proud Bella since 2009! ♥

Every year, I look forward to the latest edition of Belle de Jour (BDJ) Power Planner. It keeps me sane by keeping my schedule organized. It's also where I write down my thoughts, so please don't read my planner when you chance upon it on the desk. Haha! I know I don't use up most of the coupons inside it, but I always end up buying it anyway - every single year.


For 2015, the theme is "dance to the beat of your dreams". It's beautiful and inspiring! I liked the leatherette version better this time around since it looked more classy, but is this a sign of aging? Haha! :D
 

"The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life takes place." -Barbara De Angelis

Let's see what's inside the BDJ 2015 Power Planner!
 

I can't wait to fill these out! One fave among the ladies is the Menstrual Tracker. I personally love this, since I hate surprises. Haha!
 

There's an interesting article to read and to keep us inspired every month.
 
Monthly View
 
Weekly View
 
Bills and Cash Flow Tracker
 

Each planner comes with a sheet of free stickers, too.

Of course, the part you've all been waiting for! Presenting the "Perks of a Bella" booklet, where your Lifestyle Card and ALL 72 coupons are. 
 

Now, you don't really have to bring with you your planner when you're just out shopping since all the perks are inside this small, handy notebook! Plus, it comes with a plastic coupon holder as well.
 

The Lifestyle Card is your ticket to joining BDJ events in the future, and it's also where the generous partners of BDJ give us Bellas perks we can enjoy the entire year, no coupons needed.

Here are all the 72 coupons inside the planner. You be the judge if the planner is worth it!
 

I personally find the coupons from Ace Water Spa, Parisian, Fitness First, SORCIage by Wacoal, Jergens, Azta Urban Salon, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, and Cupcakes by Sonja very usable. The perks from Serenitea and Megaworld Lifestyle Malls aren't very substantial since 2014, so they need improvement.

Price:
P598.00 for the regular version (the one with the girl on the cover)
P680.00 for the leatherette version (the one I have)

Belle de Jour Power Planner 2015 is available online and at select National Book Store, Power Books, and Fully Booked branches. Like Belle de Jour Power Planner on Facebook for more information.


I'm loving my BDJ 2015 Power Planner, and I can't wait to use it! Do you have yours already? :D

Love,
Helen

Toni&Guy Hair Trunk Show

Toni and Guy recently unveiled the A/W 2014 hair trends at an exclusive pop-up hair trunk show at Todd English Food Hall. Hosted by the Collab Contessa, Dara Roa, guests enjoyed a first look on the latest hair and fashion trends straight from London Fashion Week.


To bring this season’s trends to life, guests enjoyed a live hair styling session from top stylists of Toni & Guy Essensuals.


Multiple hair looks were crafted from edgy faux hawks for that creative look to busy but chic casual waves.


Ultimately, long and luscious locks are what’s in this season. Long hair goes a long way in styling, like a sleek ponytail for Classic, waterfall braid for Casual, voluminous blowout for Glamour, and layered up-do for Creative.


The highlight of the event however was a discussion led by social media beauty maven and Unilever's resident Beauty Expert, Agoo Bengzon, who talked about the significance of Toni and Guy's Hair Meet Wardrobe philosophy.


In her words, "You can always make a statement with your hair. It is actually your best accessory. It's not enough to be dressed well; one must always be dressed from the hair down to your shoes. That is the epitome of true style."


At the pop-up salon, stylish, long waves were the craze. Using Toni & Guy's Casual Sea Salt texturising Spray, guests showed off their dramatic beach-inspired wavy hair that went well with boho-chic outfits.

Toni & Guy has been making waves since the cutting edge hair care range was introduced to the Philippine market last year and it looks like they will continue to take the lead in hair innovation.

Whether your look is...

Glamour
 
Casual

Classic

Creative

...there's definitely a product range that can suit your personal style philosophy.

Toni and Guy products are available at select Watsons and SM stores nationwide. Like ToniandGuyPH on Facebook and follow @hair_wardrobePH on Twiter and Instagram to get fresh off-the-runway hair trends.
 
Love,
Helen
