Review: Rucy’s Vanity Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

20 Aug

It’s been a while since I posted about eye makeup. I rarely buy products for eyelids because mine are so small. The only acceptable thing for me and noticeable is eyeliner.

I was looking at the bath and cosmetics section in a supermarket few weeks ago. I told myself I’m not going to buy anything. I changed my mind when I saw the kiosk of Rucy’s Vanity. It’s a korean brand with affordable makeup and skincare, if you guys didnt know. Range is from 80 ($2) pesos to 300 pesos ($6). Their liquid liner was on my wishlist so I had to get it.

Description:
7ml. Long lasting Water-proof eyeliner with deep black pigmentation that last whole day without smudging

Ingredients:
to be added later

Here’s the brush. It’s so thin but you can easily draw thick lines too.PhotoGrid_1471417029189-1

Pros:
-Available online and in-stores; department stores and supermarkets
-Affordable, 160 pesos ($3)
-I like simple packaging and no spills
-Long-lasting
-Easy to remove with makeup remover (it’s a pro because I’m a newbie in makeup)
-No smudge
-Thin brush applicator
-It’s easy to create sharp wings with this
-Perfect for monolids like mine

Cons:
-I dont think there’s any.

Testing it with water

PhotoGrid_1471346703301-1
I rubbed them thrice after testing with water. The 3rd photo above shows the results. There are some gaps but majority stayed in place. Who would actually rub their eyes when they have eyeliner on? Hahaha. Keep in mind that it’s easily removed with makeup wipes/remover. A plus for me because we’re all about avoiding fine lines.

Please excuse my messy brow. I cant do much with my monolid. I could draw the simplest line with it. 2 coats are enough to make it dark and cover everything. I have warts on the area so going through it twice fills gaps. It dries in a few seconds. I’m oily but there’s no smudging. It lasts the whole day too. No allergic reactions.

This is by far my favorite liner aside from the fork pen Yni-Picturesque. Its brush makes it easy to create thin and thick wings. The price is amazing too. ย Just because something’s affordable doesnt mean it’s low quality. Here’s a proof. I highly recommend it. Next on my list: their BB cream and mascara. I’ll get them soon. Most of the time they have discounts. Check out their website rucysvanityph.com.

Or you can get them in-stores. Here are their locations. I got this personally from Rucy’s Vanity Facebook page.

June – July 2016 Favorites

31 Jul

It took a while for us to select these products. I combined them because I didnt want to make a short post. I use the same routine but I added new items. Products for sunburn and skin repairing. I also included my favorite food and music.


Skin Care

PhotoGrid_1469961650579

Skinlite Makeup Remover Wipes
Etude House Every Month Cleansing Tissue is always sold out in stores. This became my favorite. Purederm is its sister company. It has 30 sheets for 89 pesos ($2) only. How affordable is that? It removes my makeup with just one sheet. It’s in plastic packaging and box. You’re sure that they wont dry out. It’s always available in Landmark Department Stores.

SKQIN Dual Sissi Mask (Gold & Silver)
I felt that my skin wants extra hydration. These masks fit my face shape perfectly. It wont slide off. I can move freely. It moisturizes skin like a baby’s bum.

Gloria’s Lavender Soap
My sister bought a soap set during our Boracay trip. The first thing we used was the lavender soap. We’re using it until now that we’re back home. We are obsessed with lavender. Even our diffuser is in that scent.

Foodaholic Snail 100 Soothing Gel
This gel helped to soothe our sunburn. It calms the skin right away. Instantly, like few seconds after application. We use it for the whole body because it’s not sticky. No residue and it feels like we didnt apply anything.

My sister knows that I love snail. She saw me using TM’s line in 2011. She finally tried the magic of snail slime. Her sunburn and peeling on the face got better in just 2 days of using Foodaholic Snail Soothing Gel. She loves it now!

Rucy’s Vanity Whitening Lotion
I bought foundation and it matches my face skin tone. But my neck, chest, arms and legs became dark when we went to the beach. I’m using this lotion on my neck and chest. Hoping it would at least help to whiten those areas.

Most products in this post are for hydration. My skin felt super dry when we’re in the plane. Probably because of the pressure and lack of air. I could really feel it and it’s uncomfortable.


Food

PhotoGrid_1469789000655-1

Fries
I kept on eating fries these past few days. I know it’s unhealthy. I’m trying to control myself. I’m craving for Potato Corner’s cheese flavor and McDonald’s. Aaaah. So good!

Dunkin Donut Choco Butternut
My all time favorite donut. It’s just right and not too sweet. They said choco butternut is now in the premium line. It just got thicker. Nothing changed with its taste.


Music

Green Day
I’ve been listening to Green Day songs lately….. as in everyday. Some of my favorites; Give Me Novacaine, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, American Idiot, Wake Me Up When September Ends, 21 Guns, Holiday, Good Riddance, Basket Case and the 9-minute song, Jesus of Suburbia. I grew up listening to them. I want to see them live someday. Their fans say they sound so good in live concerts. Punk rock will always have a special place in my heart. One of my most favorite genres.


What were you obsessing on for this month?

May 2016 Favorites

3 Jun

I’m still going through my stash. I have a long way to go! I told my sister to use them too but she said it’s too much work. Well, it really is when you think about it. But it wouldnt be a problem once you get used to it.

Skin Care

Clobetasol with Aquaphor Cream
This is a life savior for our eczema/dermatitis. It calms severe flare ups all the time. Severe meaning the skin is red, crusty and wet at the same time. It subsides in just 3 to 5 days. It also takes away the redness.

Hydrocortisone Cream
After a sever flare up, this is the prescribed med by my sister’s dermatologist. It is used for 3 to 5 days too. I actually use this on a daily basis for maintenance. It does a good job.

RUCY’S VANITY Whitening Serum
My face is lighter than the rest of my body including the neck. I’ve been neglecting it so might as well moisturize it twice a day too. I cant use AC Clinic Daily Gel Lotionย  for the area because it has alcohol. This serum has the right consistency. It’s very moisturizing without feeling heavy. This is available at selected supermarkets, Rucy’s Vanity kiosks and website [click here].

TONY MOLY Tomatox Massage Pack
Still one of Tony Moly’s bestsellers. You can literally see your skin is brightened after using it. Just a tip, use this continuously to have a long term effect. Little goes a long way so every cent is totally worth it. This is also available on Q-Depot’s website.


Body Care

LUSH New Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion
I know a lot of you might be tired of seeing Lush products in my posts. I’m sorry. I just couldn’t help it. This lotion is legit! It’s made from butters and oils unlike chemical-based lotions. You’re sure that it’s safe. I like to use this on my hand after washing 10x a day. I use this at night for the whole body as a treat.

THE FACE SHOP Kakao Friends Apeach Hand Cream [Cherry Blossom]
I use this the most as you can see in the photo above. It’s very light and non greasy. I love cherry blossom scent too! It smells sweet, flowery but not overpowering. I like that it’s in a small tube. I might bring another hand cream for our beach trip this month.

I apologize if you think the products in my posts are repetitive. Going through our stash is very important. You’re less likely to hoard if you know what you have. Btw, I’ll be posting a tag tomorrow especially for Filipinos.โ˜บ

January 2016 Favorites

I’ve never posted anything like this before. I’ll be doing this every month now. *what a great excuse to buy stuff* haha. I really think favorites make me want to buy more products but nope. I have self control.๐Ÿ˜Š

SKINCARE

ETUDE HOUSE Lip & Eye Makeup Remover
I’m practicing on winged liner. I’m still not good at it. This product removes eyeliner quickly without pulling the skin. I’m still young and avoiding wrinkles.

MAKEUP

E.L.F Eyebrow Lifter and Filler
I started to use this last month. It’s so easy to use. If you want instant defined brows, this is the product for you

PINK SUGAR Our Lil Secret Concealer
I ran out of my Tony Moly Face Mix Cover Pot Concealer. I started to use this and so far I’m liking it. Review coming soon!

BODY CARE

RUCY’S VANITY Whitening Body Lotion – Acacia
I take shower 2-3 times daily as for someone with O.C.D. My skin’s feeling dry and lotions help to bring back moisture. I realized I’m reaching more for this product since last month. I want to finish all the lotions I have. I like fruity scents lately and this one has that.

LUSH Red Fun
Soap in a clay form. It says on the label that it can be used as a soap, shampoo and you can even wash your clothes with it. Red Fun smells like cherry/strawberry bubblegum. It’s appealing to kids because it’s like a clay and you can mold it into shapes while taking a bath. I was curious about it. I finally got one in Santa’s Belly gift set.

YOUTUBERS

PatrickStarrr & MannyMUA
Is it weird to include a list of people & makeup artists in my favorites? Lately, I’m binge watching their videos. They’re best friends in real life. Their collabs are so funny and I enjoy watching them together. Yes, I watch all their videos from favorites, tutorials and vlogs. Their makeup skills are 100% on point!

Sorry if this post is delayed. We dont have internet/wifi for now. We’ll replace it. I’m just using my phone. If I get a wifi connection, I’ll be posting on weekdays instead of weekends. What was your favorite last month? ๐Ÿ˜Š

First Impression: Rucy’s Vanity Foam Cleansing Green Tea

13 Dec

I couldn’t end the week without talking about skin care. We have another fist impression post today. It’s for Rucy’s Vanity’s Foam Cleansing Green Tea. This also available in Aloe and Pomegranate.

I love green tea whether it’s just the scent, in food, drink or cosmetics. It’s one of my most favorite ingredients.

image

Description:
Removes make-up, dirt, impurities and excess oil. Leaves skin perfectly clean with deep cleansing action. Contains collagenn and green tea. Green tea extracts effectively remove harmful bacteria in your skin occurred by makeup and environmental pollution.

Ingredients:

image

Pros:
-Very affordable, Php 130 for 100ml
-Simple packaging
-Easy to dispense
-It has aloe, vitamin E, licorice root extract and marigold (calendula officinalis) and collagen
-Green tea scent
-Little goes a long way
-Lathers well
-Doesn’t dry out the skin
-Easy to rinse
-No film/sticky residue

Cons:
-Has parabens

The consistency is light and creamy but it lathers really well even if you only use a pea size amount. I couldnt find the green tea in the ingredients list. I’m assuming it’s the scent? Because it does smell like green tea especially when lathers up.

image

Overall, I’m satisfied with it. It removes oil and I’m glad it doesn’t dry out my skin. It’s easy to rinse and doesn’t leave a film. No stickiness at all. I’d also get the other variants. I also like the packaging.. all their product packaging in general because you’ll know you are not only paying for a pretty design but the product itself works really well. You’ll get 100ml for 100 pesos only. I think it’s a great deal… Especially this week since this cleanser is on sale for 25% off. ๐Ÿ™‚

Rucy’s Vanity extended their sale until December 17, 2015. All products are on sale and 25% off with additional freebies for above 500 pesos purchase! Visit their website rucysvanityph.com

First Impression: Rucy’s Vanity Whitening Set

4 Dec

Happy weekend readers! It’s the first week of December.๐Ÿ˜ฑ I have 3 skin care products for you guys. This set can be for yourself or for anyone that you’d like to treat.โค๏ธ

It’s a first impression post so you’ll have an idea how it feels on the skin. This set was sent by the Korean brand and Im very grateful for it. As always, everything in this post is still my 100% honest opinion. Let’s start~

Rucy’s Vanity Whitening products are packed with arbutin, aloe, morus alba bark and green tea. Arbutin is known for whitening while aloe, morus alba and green tea are calming and anti-aging ingredients. They also have a hint of rose scent.

image

Perfect whitening formula for women. Contains vitamin E & collagen also known for brightening and moisturizing for a healthy young looking and damage-free skin. Suitable for all skin types and sensitive skin. Whitening, Moisturizing, Contains Vit. E & Collagen, Oil-free, Water base, Suitable for all skin types and sensitive skin, Hypoallergenic & Non-comedogenic

Whitening Toner
This toner is very light and watery. It gives quick hydration. It doesnt feel sticky at all. It soaks in the skin just like water and it doesn’t dry out my skin. It’s 100ml bottle for Php140 ($3).

Whitening Serum
This is probably my most favorite out of all the three. It has more added ingredients; collagen, shea butter, olive oil, grapeseed oil, portulaca oleracea, gingko biloba, adenosine and vitamin E. It gives enough hydration for me. It’s very refreshing although it’s not as watery as other serums. Its consistency is like a runny lotion. It also soaks in the skin quickly without leaving an oily/sticky residue. It’s 60ml for Php210 ($5).

Whitening Lotion
The consistency of this one looks thick at first… But once you spread it around it’s as light as the serum. It’s a nice addition especially for those who have dry skin since it seals the moisture. It’s a 100ml bottle for Php160 ($3.40).

The lotion and toner has a paraben while the serum is paraben-free.

image

Overall, Im very satisfied with them especially if you look at the amount of products you’ll get for an affordable price. Imagine you’ll almost have a complete skin care routine for only 510 pesos. I think it’s a steal. I like how they feel on my skin. The packaging is simple and yet the product quality is really good. They did not irritate nor cause breakouts for me. You’ll see results if used consistently. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ‘ฏ

Dont forget to visit their website rucysvanityph.com to avail 25% discount on all products until tomorrow, Dec. 6, 2015. The discount is for purchases from their online shop and main office. Yes, including these products. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฏ

22 Nov

Im back!!! Continuing with our theme this week, body care… Today’s review is from a Korean brand. Rucy’s Vanity is known for their affordable products… Mostly below 200 pesos ($4). Ranging from skin care, body care, makeup and fragrances.โค๏ธ

I couldn’t tell for the whitening part but overall, Im liking this product mostly because of the relaxing scent.

I think this is also nice as a gift considering it’s only 120 pesos. Little goes a long way so it’s really worth it.โœจ
