#ThrowbackThursday Beauty Edition

I started wearing makeup when I was in high school. Not really in an everyday basis but whenever I feel like to. I was even scolded by one of my teachers for too much eyeliner and blush on.Like most students who just rely on their weekly allowance, I’m only capable of buying the most affordable products I can get.

Now, I’ll be showing you the first items I remember purchasing myself.

Avon Clear Mascara. Basically where everyone I know started. I love that it just holds the curl of my lashes, nothing more. I even used it for one school year (10months). I still don’t have the idea about expiration dates then.

ELF blush. I can’t really remember the exact shade because I don’t pay that much attention about it before. All I know is it is a bit coral. I wear so much that I look worse than Pikachu.


Ponds Daily Facial Wash. I just got into the hype. I see my friends using this and I just copied them. No other explanation or reason. I remember breaking out so bad and still used it because I don’t know any other brand. I eventually switched to Clean and Clear after I finished the big tube from Ponds.


Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Face Powder. This has been my HG during those days. I lost track on how many I have used up because I still purchase this up until the start of my working years.


Revlon lipstick in Cherries in the Snow. The first lipstick purchase I made for myself that I feel like I spent too much. My mom used to give me loreal lippies and I bought Nichido and Ever Bilena lipstick, but it seems like this is the one that marked my maturity as a makeup lover.

  1. My first kikay items are ever bilena compact powder, careline blush, nichido eyeliner and mascara 2 in 1 and ever bilena lipstick I already forgot the shade. I start using makeup when I was in college but when I was in High School I remember I used baby powder and Mertiolate for my lipstick (Mertiolate ung nilalagay sa kuko) don’t know if tama spelling pero nung High School ako un kse ang uso:)

  2. I remember a classmate in our early highschool days who used to pinch her eyelids and cheeks then she will say “ayan may kulay na!” Haha!
    My first mascara was the clear one from Avon, too! And i remember ordering from an Avon lady a lipstick red lipstick with shade name Puppy Love Red. I don’t know what particular shade will look good on me. I thought pink will not suit my skintone and brown will look like mud on my lips so i opted for the red shade. Twice ko lang yata ginamit yun at one swipe lang, manipis lang talaga. Pulang pula ba naman eh baguhan ako sa lipstick. At yun unbranded eyelash curler ba sinasabunutan yun lashes ko everytime gagamitin ko, kaloka!
