24 Lovely Thoughts

  1. I love Estee Lauder!!!!! I love the packaging and I love how it looks on your skin when you use it in your previous blog. But I know all the other brands as well to be good.

    1. Yup! These are amazing and I use them all on rotation and would even repurchase! :)

  2. Wowowow! Maharlika..pero for sure they deliver great coverage and pak na pak na makeup look. Anyways, if I remember it right un fave mo is un Kat Von D., nakisuyo ka kay Say na magpabili sa Sephora. Yan dn po ba un foundation na ok magcover ng tatoo!?

  3. OMG! So cute! I love the monster packaging a lot!!

  4. Wow! so many to choose from! Is there any difference when using high end and drug store foundations (aside from price of course)? My expectations are very high since the price is also high too. :)

    1. Staying power and coverage, in general. Pricier brands tend to have better pigmentation and shade range, and packaging, of course! :)

  5. Grabe ang mamahal ng funda Pero worth it naman siguro. Sana maka avail ako kahit isa haha maybelline dream satin ang ginagamit ko tipid na Tipid ko pa. Request din po miss Martha Ano po marecommend mo na funda na affordable Pero good quality

    1. I believe i blogged about the affordable foundations that I blog. It's here! :)

  6. Wow. Dameng choices, kala ko wala akong makikita na ginagamit ko eh. Nagulat ako nakita ko ung Happy Skin. I have that Happy Skin Don't Get Mad Get Even Hydrating Powder Foundation, bday gift ni husband, last last sale pa nila, may free pang Liquid Foundation. Kaya sulit bili. Hehehe

  7. Too pricey 🖐 but worth it namam ang gaganda ng claims. Thanks for the reviews Ms. Martha 💗💗💗

  8. Haynako, when will Kat Von D be available here in the Philippines :( I do not buy foundations online kasi I don't rely on swatches, gusto ko nakikita ko talaga how it looks on my skin. And I'm a Bobbi Brown freak kaya puro ganon bases ko. But I wanna try MUFE!

    1. I love bobbi too! Mufe is good as well. Yeah, I wish KVD will be available here soon! :D

  9. Yahooooo.... what a price!? Hehe subra mahal ms. Martha but it looks na maganda siya lalo na sa may oily face. So pricey :-)

  10. MUFE's been in my wishlist for so long. Though lately Poise and cargo caught my fancy

  11. We've got a wide range of choices. 😊😊😊 Wanna try Shiseido brand since it creates hype in social media sites. But oh I notice Shu UeMURA but it's so MAHAL ah. hahahaha.

    1. Shiseido is amazing! I love this brand from their skin care to foundations. :)
