Justine, Rachel, and I got bored while reviewing for an exam so we took pictures of our vanity kits. This is Rachel’s kikay kit, featuring a very unique hair tie made out of recycled steel tape and sheer floral fabric. Here’s her daily beauty stash:
- Nyx Round Lipstick – Rea
- 2 MisshaThe Style Lucid Nail Polish: BL04 & PP02
- 1 MisshaThe Style Nail Polish: VL002
- NeutrogenaUV Compact Natural Beige #21
- Johnson’s Baby Powder Skin Protection
- Hair tie
Her Nyx Rea is a little darker than my Pumpkin Pie and Mars, I think, but it’s also a nude color. I also tried on her Missha Purple nail polish (can’t remember which color code it is) on my fingers and it’s cute. I don’t usually wear nail polish on my fingernails since it will just get scratched off during drafting days, but I wanted to see how Missha’s nail polish fare. If I have enough spare money I would really like to compare some products from Etude House, Missha, Nature Republic, and Tony Moly. They are all Korean beauty brands that just recently got in the Philippine market, with Etude House leading the pack.
Trivia: Missha, which is the latest Korean beauty brand to get here, has TVXQ‘s Yunho and Changmin as their endorsers. Meanwhile, Nature Republic has JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu, who are all from TVXQ as well) as their endorsers. Since I am a Jaejoong lover, I wanted to buy some eyeshadow applicators, brow liners, and mascara from Nature Rep just to have a Jaejoong mini standee (which is offered in Korea’s Nature Rep); Unfortunately, Philippines’ Nature Rep still has Jang Geun Suk as its face, so no thank you I shall wait for Kim Jaejoong to get here.
