MR. JEWELS REVIEW : I'M ENGAGED!

I haven't read any review about Mr.Jewels' store, so this post will serve as one, which will guarantee that the shop is legit and 100% trusted for those who are looking for jewelries specially wedding rings and engagement rings. 

Le Bf, is planning to buy an engagement ring. The proposal was ain't a surprise anymore. I was actually thinking of getting an authentic diamond, pero since pratical na dapat ngayon we opted for this silver ring with high quality cubic zirconia, mawala man o masira hindi ka iiyak ng dugo. Hehehe.

So after searching the internet for so many days, I cannot find any review about Mr.Jewels but methinks that the store is legit and trusted because I have seen their sulit page (olx now) before they have a lot of positive feedback from their clients so le bf and I decided to make our first jewelry purchase at Mr.Jewels.

They offer meet-up and shipping. Since the schedule didn't permit us to meet the seller, bf decided to have it shipped. And after a day I received the ring in my office.

Here's how it looks like on their olx account:

CUBIC ZIRCONIA VINTAGE STERLING SILVER ENGAGEMENT RING



And here's how it looks like person:

(Note : Pictures below were captured using my smartphone, quality may differ on the above photos)


I love the packaging and the color :)

 It's a vintage solitaire silver ring with Top grade Cubic Zirconia Diamonds.


The ring is very shiny in person. I have to turned off the flash so the shine on ring will not reflect in picture.


The diamond is colorless and looks very expensive in person.


 I finally know now the beauty of cubic zirconia. I fell inlove after wearing and seeing it in person for the first time and of course the thought that I am now engaged.



The ring is actually in size 6 so they have to resize it to 5 since I'm size 5. Resizing is FREE! Yey!



Taken with flash. Isn't it pretty?








Here is a short video of the shiny shimmering ring.

I am kind of hesitant to say the price of the ring, "baka sabihin le bf is so kuripot" but it is very affordable, promise! If you want to know the price you can email me. Price will not reach 5k. 

I think the feeling would still be the same even if he gave me a genuine diamond. For me, it doesn't matter if the ring is expensive or not, what really matter is that, we love each other. I am not against with those guys who can give expensive engagement ring, we can also afford one but we decided to go for affordable ring since we can use the money for more important things.


Thank you Mr. Jewels for this pretty ring! I love it very much.

Mr.Jewels' sells genuine engagement diamond rings and wedding rings and other jewelries, you can approach them through facebook , sms or their official website.

WET N WILD MEGALAST LIPSTICKS

I purchased these lipsticks last year and ngayon lang ako makakapagpost about it. Well, by the way I really wanted to try these lipsticks since a lot of bloggers have been raving about it, so instead of buying a MAC lipstick I opted for 5 pieces of wet n wild matte lipsticks. I bought different shades, since It is not reasonable for me to buy lipsticks with almost the same shade, I mean what's the purpose? So here are the 5 shades that I got from Makeupholics:

It retails for P145.00, much cheaper than the mall

I hope my Zenfone5 captures the true colors of these lipsticks, I haven't took shots from my digital camera, but I will make sure to provide more pictures soon .

Left to Right:
WINE ROOM | DON'T BLINK PINK | PURTY PERSIMMON | CINNAMON SPICE | SPOTLIGHT RED | CHERRYBOMB

I didn't have the chance to swatch the Cinnamon Spice because it was my friend's lippy. So here's the swatch of the lipstick on my arm. I have yellow-ish + olive-ish skintone.

My friend says that the Cinnamon Spice is almost similar to cherrybomb except it has brown undertone while the latter has red.

Some girls hate the formulation. So here's my take. The lipstick has matte formula so it will help to stay the color on your lips. But if your lips are prone to drying and chapping, you really have to moisturize first or exfoliate prior applying this.

Pigmentation: It's amazing! You won't get the same pigmentation from local lipstick brands. They are true to the colors as what you can see in the tube. It's opaque and it offers different shades from pink - red - plum.

Scent  It seems like not all the lipstick has the same scent, the wine room smells like saliva (ew!) same with my wet n wild lip liners, but the other has candy like scent. I don't know but here is my take, the wineroom is the most easiest shade to apply and the glidiest lipsick among the 5 shades. I think the "thing" that they put to make it creamy is the one that makes it smells like that. I don't know, comment below if you have the same observation.

Formulation : Just like what  I said earlier, it has matte finish, but some of the shades glides on better like the wineroom, cherrybomb and spotlight red, I mean they are more creamy and doesn't have streaks or whatsoever unlike the bright shades like the purty persimmon and don't blink pink. It will dry your lips after 2-3 hours but for wineroom it looks okay, but if you will apply lip balm over your lips, the chapping will somehow disappear or becomes minimal. Still, better than Ever Bilena's matte lipsticks.

Staying Power : Magaling! They last for 4 hours with minimal fading specially when you eat. It isn't transfer proof nor smudge proof but they last longer than other lipsticks brand we have here in the Philippines.

Packaging : Well "madaling masira". You can't complain daw kasi it's cheap lang talaga sa U.S.

So overall, the only thing that I hate about these lipsticks is that the dryness and the packaging. But I still use them everday. Specially the wineroom. It is best for work or the thing called "MLBB". I will post next time with additional pictures "me" wearing the lipstick. So stay tune.

Thanks for reading!

Packaging wise. As you can see, the bottle has a pump so it's easier for you to control the product. The bottle is made up of plastic and glass which is not that heavy compared to Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation.

As you can see there the foundation has micro shimmers, but fret not because it doesn't look obvious upon application.

Swatches:
A little goes a long way, a single pump is enough to cover my entire face.
Right side well blended


What to love:
- Packaging
- Smooth Application
- A little goes a long way
- Flawless looking
- Minimize the pores
- With SPF
- With Retinol
- Light to medium coverage

What I hate:
- Scent
- Micro Shimmer
- Not for oily skin!
- It oxidizes!
- Whitecast (ironic because it oxidize)
- Shades are so so, not Asian friendly I guess.
- It transfer

Not really sure if you will benefit all its "proven results" because I stop using this. The shade didn't match my skin tone and the formulation is not compatible with my skin condition which is "Oily". I think this one is good for women who are ages 30 and up. Those who has dry skin.
