Barenaturals Order

I know it’s a weird thing that I’m showing you my deposit slip but see, I have this bad habit of forgetting prices. So I’m showing you this now just so you know how much I’ve splurged recently on make-up.

I’ve paid PHP 590 which already covers three items total (includes shipping). Not bad eh? So these are the products that I’ve ordered from http://barenaturals.multiply.com/ with the corresponding prices (All prices quoted are in Philippine currency).

1 pc. Morena Filipina Mineral Veil PHP 200
1pc. S5 Primer 5ml PHP 145
1 pc. 5g Ultimate Concealer new formulation! PHP 195
Shipping PHP 50

TOTAL PHP 590

Well for starters, I’ve heard nothing but good things about this brand. It actually took a lot of blog-surfing before I’ve decided to finally try these and see for myself what the big hoopla is all about. Let me show you why I was convinced to buy these goodies:

MORENA FILIPINA MINERAL VEIL

I’ve been on the hunt for MMUs (Mineral Make-up) for quite sometime and so I’ve tried tons of testers in the market. Among everything that I’ve tried I must admit that I haven’t really seen a product that fits pinay skin perfectly. Except maybe Loreal True Match Minerals. So, when I saw this product online and the fact that they named it MORENA FILIPINA just caught my attention. Finally! Someone thought of developing an MMU for Filipina skin!

Website says…

” Our new veil formulation! It looks several tones darker than LATINA but it is just a SHADE away. This will definitely add the last finishing touch to achieve a flawless, airbrushed, flawless finish, good for morena beauties!

Plus admit it, the price ain’t that bad at all! Course, I will reserve the blow-by-blow product review once I’ve actually received the product. Other variants are Hot Latina (best-seller I’ve heard), Chinadoll, Japanese Geisha.

S5 PRIMER

I don’t know about you but I still believe that there are quality primers out there that aren’t expensive. So with the S5 Primer, all I can say is I have nothing but high hopes for this find. Website says…

“This oil-free primer has natural plant extracts, olive squalene known for skin smoothening, age-defying power! It is dubbed as a “skin quencher” thus, protecting our skin from surface damages due to exposure to UV light and other sources of oxidative damage! Your skin does not only look beautiful outside.. but the skin cells are given the much needed care as well! Makeup fondation lasts longer, face looks superbly beautiful and did we say that S5 Primer comes at a very unbelivably friendly price!”

Again, I will reserve my review until I actually get my hands on this baby. On to the next!

ULTIMATE CONCEALER

My last purchase is the ultimate concealer. Well, you can’t have too many concealers like I always say.

Website says…

“A concealer that holds up to our high standards. Ultimate Concealer can be used by all skin tones, it goes on smooth and creamy like a liquid, covers dark undereye circles, dark lids, red spots, spider veins, minor scars and more. Our best advice is to always apply with a good conealing brush made especially for this purpose. The taklon hairs do not absorb the concealer as a natural hair brush will. It also gives a fine even application. Due to the strengh of pure pigments you only need a very small amount for coverage.”

So there…I’m pretty excited for my package to arrive. Oh if you notice, I only got little amounts of each because I want to make sure that I’m absolutely satisfied with the product/s before I even spend on the big containers. I also asked for free samples with my order so I hope Bare Naturals will indulge me with that request. Oh and guess what! I got an update that they will be offering BB creams starting next week! Oh the sheer joy!

Hope that was helpful. If by any chance, you girls already have these products, would appreciate any feedback that you can share. So there….Gotta jam! Hub and I have a movie-date tonight. Woot! Woot! Till next entry Chikkas.
