Cathy Doll Brow Mascara Review




Way before I got addicted to Brow Pencils, Brow Powders and Brow Gels, my love affair for Brow products started with a product called Brow Mascara.

"Brow Mascara what?"  That's the exact phrase my brother texted when I asked him to help me purchase my favorite Brow Mascara whenever he stops over Hong Kong.  People weren't really into brow products back then and Brow Mascaras are almost non-existent in the Philippine Market.

Fast forward to today, I am so happy I am a Beauty Blogger and even happier than there are more Brow Mascara choices now!  Being a Beauty blogger made me want to search for more new and upcoming products and brands and one of the promising brand I found is from Cathy Doll.

Okay, I have worked with the brand for more than a year now but seriously, they always hear my honest thoughts on the products they are bringing in.  One of the product I raised both hands for them to bring it in is called Cathy Doll Brow Mascara --- call me selfish (because I use them dearly), but after trying and testing this out, I knew my country has to try it too!  (naks!  My country talaga!)

The Cathy Doll Brow mascara is available in 4 yummy sounding shades - Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Creamy Caramel and Hazelnut.  

I know most of you chocolate lovers are thinking about your favorite chocolate brands now, me, I'm thinking about Coffee Flavors!  #lol

I got the shade Dark Chocolate which is the darkest shade from the bunch.  Housed in a "Cathy Doll-like" packaging (translate: CUTE), I like the stripes and gold!

The size of the product is just right and the wand is perfect in length and brush head is not too small or big!  I find this very easy and comfortable to use!

Get A #SmartiPhone8 Today Like I Did!



Last November 17, I braved the crazy Friday Traffic from Manila to Ortigas just to be at the Smart Jump Center, SM Megamall.  

Okay, it took me 2.5 hours to be exact, but the leg pain and bladder issues were dissolved when I got hold of my newest iPhone 8 Plus which will serve me well on both work and personal use!  (K-Drama watching will be so much easier to the eyes!)



I remembered how I got my iPhone 7 early this year!  It was as easy as going to the Smart center and pay a minimal amount because I opted for higher memory (hello Kyle Nash videos and photos!)  This is what I love about being a Smart Subscriber, I don't need to shell out one-time cash-out because I have a good monthly plan - so must you!

For the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus plan, it gets better!

Benefit's Double the Lip on my Lips!




I remember the 90s where Lipliner + Lipstick combination is the key to COOLNESS!  Some of you were probably babies or toddlers by then, as for me, I was in highschool clueless and staying away from this trend because my mom may strangle me!

Fast forward to today, who would've thought this trend would return and best of all?  Application is as easy as ONE swipe and you do not need 2 products to achieve such trend!

According to Benefit, this new lip product will give you Full Lips that Keep It Real - meaning, you still look like yourself, not like a lip-injected individual!

It was launched months ago but I finally got my hands on 6 shades (I believe there were a total of 8) and I'm BEYOND happy!

Weekend Food Trip at: Pamana, Tagaytay





The long weekend is a perfect time for the family to bond and where's the nearest place to bond near the Metro?  Tagaytay!  Though I've been in this city gazillion times, it has always been a wonderful experience with the family (or even friends) bonding there!  Amidst the crazy traffic, our little boy (and us!)  had so much fun!


I've done some research on good Filipino Restaurants around the area and Pamana Restaurant  popped on my Google Search.  Did a bit of phone call and was told I can't do reservations during holidays, it's fine though as we arrived 2:00pm for late lunch and the place was not as jampacked anymore!

Note: Dine outside and you get the lovely view of Taal Volcano.

Holiday Shopping with AMW, our Watsons Wishlist





My language of love has always been gift-giving, you can add a bit of that hugging and holding hands too and a lot of sweet words and crazy jokes!  That's me with my friends and I'm sure a lot of my friends can atest to that! 

Because I love all my AMW readers so much!  I always welcome contests or giveaways because that is my simple way of saying: "Thank you for being with me all through these years (10 years to be exact!)"

One campaign I was so excited to do is a Holiday Shopping event with a winner at Watsons SM Mall of Asia.  As much as I want to give everyone a chance to shop with me, there can only be ONE winner and my lucky winner was picked via Random generator and the winner was Ms. Eddieli Bungay.


True enough, the saying "It is better to give than to receive" is true!  Even Ms. Bungay felt the Holiday Spirit because her shopping was focused on the Watsons Exclusive Gift Sets corner as she excited exclaimed "for my tito!  tita!" etc...  I was smiling deep inside to see how our mini shopping bonding can make other people happy too!




When you enter Watsons, you'll see "A Wonderful Gift For Ever Wish" corner.  This is part of the Holiday 2017 campaign, in this corner, you'll find huge selection of gift ideas to brighten up the season of both giver and the receiver!
