[Estée Lauder] More than Mascara in Rich Black

I got this sample mascara from a gift set I got last last Christmas and I am in love with this mascara. It is still in the old packaging, since this was like from 2 years ago. Sorry for the crappy photos. I took the photos using my tablet to see how the pictures will be.

Estee Lauder More than Mascara Brush

What I like about the product:

  • Creates soft, full, natural looking lashes.
  • Lengthens
  • No clumping, no flaking, no smudging, no smearing, no stinging.
  • Dries up fast
  • Waterproof
  • It is able to reach the hard to reach lashes.


  • Contains parabens. Parabens is still arguable whether it really is bad for the skin or not. Some people might strictly not like it, while I am just neutral about it.

What I don’t like about the product:

  • I don’t think it’s available locally.
  • It only lengthens a little. My eyes are monolid and the effect isn’t seen very visible unlike other lengthening mascaras.
  • Doesn’t volumize.
  • Mascara dries up fast, so you have to use it up as soon as possible.

Verdict: This mascara is not for those who are looking to wanting dramatic lashes. This mascara is great for those who wants to keep their makeup on a minimal and great for making natural looks. I like to use this mascara on lazy days when I don’t feel like putting on too much but still looking good. One of my major monolid problems is that mascara tend to smudge my lids. What I especially like about this mascara is that it dries up fast. that it doesn’t smudge on my eyelids.

Would I repurchase? Yes but no. This costs around USD 22 and that’s too expensive for me, maybe when I am on a splurging mode.

To whom do I recommend this to? To anyone who wants to have a more natural looking lashes.

Back Alive | Estée Lauder Travel Case

3rd Best Oral DefenseBy God’s grace and mercy, we came 3rd in Best Oral Defense

February was a hell for us college graduating students. I was so busy I wasn’t able to fulfill my resolution to blogging twice a week. We were packed with papers, deadlines, quizzes, and exams. Looking back everything seemed like a mad rush for us and February just seemed like it was just yesterday. It seemed like it was just yesterday when we were defending our thesis defense. But now, we’re glued in our screens waiting for our final grades to be released and anticipating our graduation march this April.

I am now free from all my school constraints! I can now freely blog as much as I want.

Estée Lauder Gift Box

I received a travel case from my Ninang for Christmas back in December. It’s my Ninang who would always give me Estée Lauder gifts. I’ve meant to post about this but due to school work I held back. I just loved her gift for me, even my mom wanted it! She kept bugging me before that I should just give it to her but I wouldn’t budge.

Spring Fling: Estée Lauder Gift Set

Estée Lauder gift set

I just want to share to you one of the favorite gifts I’ve gotten. I got this Estée Lauder gift set from my ninang on my birthday last year, if my memory serves me correct. This has been my favorite gift because it’s Estée Lauder! Well, other than that I love it because their products are effective! In this gift set are my favorite blushes and make-up remover. I like this entire set because it really does bring out the “spring” feeling. These are the only high-end products I ever have in my collection.

What it says:


My Make-up Collection: Lips

My humble lippie collection. Looking at the picture now, I realize non of them were bought by me! I was never fond of buying lip products because I am very lazy applying them. I find it a hassle to constantly reapply lip products. Some of them are already 4 years old or older!


My Make-up Collection: Face

Make-up is one of the few things I have in common with my mom. My love for make-up started when I was just a kid. Watching my mom doing her daily make-up, I was curious about them. When my mom goes out, I would look through her things and make swatches of her make-up on my arms. Her lipsticks became my favorite toy. I remember a time when I was still yet a kid, I really liked a certain make-up palette from my mom’s kit. I really wanted to have it and begged my mom to give it to me but my mom won’t give it to me. Instead, she promised me she would give it to me when I reached my teens. Back then, I was excited to grow up so that I could have that palette! Then eventually, with my father’s sudden death and our constant moving of houses, the palette was forgotten. Even if my mom did keep the promise, the palette would have become old,  broken and had gone bad. Looking back, I loved that palette and that palette started it all for my love for make-up. (more…)
