FAKE UDPP + WWZ

22 Jun

Counterfeit Urban Decay Primer Potion…it’s everywhere!! Got mine at some random bazaar. I got curious since I have the original one so I thought it’s going to be a great  post to write a comparison of some sort. so read on if you want to know what I think about this faker ^^

This is in EDEN. They only have this plus I heard this is the closest one to the original…compared to SIN that is.

unfortunately, I haven’t owned one in this packaging. I only have the original one which as far as I know has no counterfeit version yet. So packaging wise I can not give an accurate comparison. So I just took another picture (back) so comment below for “irregularities” in this type of packaging..

all I can say is that the inscriptions are spot on…word for word..complete with trademarks and all. So now we go to the actual product…

 I did not find any difference. Performance, formulation it didn’t irritate me in any way. Honestly, I was happy and was even convinced that this would actually work and that I would definitely repurchase in short, I was satisfied. Well at least for the first 2 months cause after that it just changed formulation for i-dont-know-what-reason! It became runny and liquid-y all of a sudden (which you can actually notice in the pic above). I didn’t left it out in a hot place. It was just where it has always been. well not anymore because I have long tossed it in the garbage.

So there, unfortunately this ended up not so informative afterall because I really can’t offer any useful tips spotting a fake one. You can tell the difference a couple of months after using it. I got this around Php300  so rather than getting this, I highly advise you get the Etude House one or the ELF one. Those are Php200+ and Php 100+. I also have both and they are awesome I tell you.

Please let me know if you want me to do more of these ^^

World War Z! one word…EXHAUSTING… in a good way 🙂 loads of action and suspense that I actually find the movie too ‘fast phased’ like a lot of stuff needs to be further explained. So right after the movie…on to the nearest bookstore I went and grabbed the book ^^

First time ever I bought the book after seeing the movie cause it’s usually the other way around for me. Or I just don’t buy the book at all because reading is actually a luxury for me. It’s something I love doing but just cannot find time for it. But this looks Ok…not too thick and not too short as well. Plus I just started reading and with the way Max Brooks wrote this, I think I’ll finish this in no time ^^ let me know if you want a book review.

I wouldn’t dwell so much on the movie since it’s pretty late and I really should be hitting the bed. Just go see WWZ if you haven’t ^^

Most Hated Product of 2012

30 Jan

So I took a break from blogging last year but I didn’t stop trying out stuff from highend to drugstore. Generally, I liked all my purchase but some of them sucks….

Most Hated Face Makeup

Broke me out. I haven’t been breaking out recently til I tried this TT.TT. From all my hated products last year, this has got to be on top. It’s just that bad 😦

Most Hated Eye Makeup

I love the black one and is crazy popular with makeup enthusiasts so when looking for a new brown pencil I decided to try this one. It showed up well when I swatched it in the back of my hands but for some reason you can’t just see it when actually applied on eyes 😦

Most Hated Face Care

The product itself is OK but the vibrator — yes, I said it but what else am I supposed to call that vibrating thing– broke after using it twice or thrice. I did return it to the L’Oreal counter to be repaired which they did but it broke again after using it a couple of times. So now I just don’t bother myself and use the product like normal creams without that vibrating end — there, sounds better?? 😛

Most Hated Scent

Too powdery smelling for my liking. Kinda smell sour overtime. I included this on the list because I love how the lotion version smells so it’s kinda disappointing how this one does.

Yay! only 4. So I don’t have one for Tools and Lip Product. Sure I have stuff that I’m not mad inlove with but not that bad to be my “Most Hated Product” and I don’t want to include them just for the sake of completing the list.
