DIY Cosmetic Organizer and Jewelry Box Using BDJ Boxes

Lilaccola - DIY Cosmetic Organizer and Jewelry Box Using BDJ Boxes

Aside from makeup, beauty boxes, travel, running and joining giveaways, I also love gift wrapping. I usually wrap gifts only during Christmas Season and I really love exerting extra effort for that. Buying materials is the hardest part because I want my gift wrap to be unique, so I have to find a unique paper and other materials. Once I already have the materials, it would be a lot easier for me to think of ways on how my gift wrap will look unique and more presentable. Today, I would love to share to you, my lovely readers, on how I made a DIY Cosmetic Organizer and Jewelry Box using my BDJ boxes. I am a BDJ Box subscriber since last year, and I kept all the boxes I'd got from the previous months. I've bee thinking of ways on how will I be able to re-use my boxes for quite a long time now. Good thing I was able to watch Nicole Romero's, DIY: Recycle Your BDJ Box Into A Kikay Kit

Glamourbox September 2013: Beauty SOS

Posted in Beauty

Lilaccola - Glamourbox September 2013: Beauty SOS

Another Beauty Box that I am currently subscribed with is Glamourbox. Unlike the other Beauty Box Subscriptions here in the Philippines, they are not releasing boxes every month. It started last May. I got an email from them, informing me that they will no longer release monthly boxes. They do inform me whenever they are releasing a new box though. They released a new box for the month of September. Glamourbox September 2013: Beauty SOS was delivered on the last week of the month.

Shiseido Ibuki Skincare Set from Sample Room

Lilaccola - Shiseido Ibuki Skincare Set from Sample Room

Last September 13, 2013, Sample Room released a new sample which is probably the most raved about skincare product nowadays, the Shiseido Ibuki line. Because I only have 100+ points, I immediately purchased VIP points which cost Php599 for 1000 points.

 

Shiseido Ibuki Skincare Set cost 1050 points. They offered individual Shiseido Ibuki products but it was more convenient for me to avail the set.

SM Beauty Box August 2013 (Unboxing)

Posted in Beauty

Lilaccola - SM Beauty Box August 2013 (Unboxing)

SM Beauty Box was launched last August 1, 2013. Limited boxes were available at the SM Department Store Beauty Section of SM Makati, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia and SM North EDSA. I was one of the lucky ladies who were able to grab this awesome box. I got mine at SM Megamall. I got two boxes, one for me and one for my Mom. I am not sure until when the boxes were available but I tried to buy another box on the 15th of August but unfortunately, it was no longer available.

 

The SM Beauty Box was really huge. I bought two and I had a hard time in carrying the boxes. The super heavy boxes worth the effort though.

Sigma Makeup Brushes Haul (Black Friday Sale)

Lilaccola - Sigma Makeup Brushes Haul (Black Friday Sale)

I would like to share my first ever Sigma Makeup Brushes Haul. I bought the items last November 2012 during Sigma's Black Friday Sale wherein they offered free shipping worldwide.

 

I know that a lot of Filipinas would love to know how much would it cost if one would order brushes straight from Sigma Beauty. I was one of them. I grabbed the chance and immediately ordered the brushes I've been wanting for such a long time.

    October BDJ Box: Express It Wild Thing (Maybelline Box)

    Posted in Beauty

    Lilaccola - October BDJ Box: Express It Wild Thing (Maybelline Box)

    When I woke up last Saturday, I was surprised to see that my October BDJ Box had arrived. I was not expecting it to come anytime soon because usually, BDJ Box gives us updates through their FB page whenever they will be shipping the box of the month. It was indeed, a very lovely surprise. :)

     

    October BDJ Box is a Maybelline New York exclusive BDJ Box. Six different boxes were released, Sugar n Spice, Runway Rock, Scene Stealer, Femme Fatale, Queen of Extreme and Wild Thing. I got the Wild Thing but I wished they've given me the Queen of Extreme instead because I really want to try out the new Maybelline mascara, The Rocket, which is included inside that box.

    Lilaccola - Rainbow Makeup Look (Throwback Thursday)

    It's Throwback Thursday time! I would like to share my own version of Rainbow Makeup Look that I created last year for the Anniversary contest of Makeup Hub by Naturele Collezione.

     

    I love joining giveaways especially if it requires creativity. Though the contest was on a raffle basis, I still exerted extra effort for this contest because I really love makeup and I was a bit addicted to colorful makeup look that time.

    Bonjour Lovelies!

     

    I would like to share to you the products I got from my December SaladBox. I totally forgot to subscribe for their December box. Luckily, when I inquired, they still have few boxes left and I was able to get one. The December Box is the lightest beauty box I ever got.
