Drugstore Steals: Nichido

This mini haul was totally unplanned, I was actually looking for a new nude lipstick, but then this sales assistant walked up to me and told me she really liked the color of my lipstick, then I complimented her expertly done eye makeup, and before we knew it we were talking about different eyebrow shaping techniques. She led me to the Nichido counter and taught me how to use a razor to shape my brows. I could never do it by myself until she taught me! I normally use a tweezer, a tiny pair of scissors, and an eyebrow brush to shape mine before, because I'm deathly scared of having a blade come in close contact with my eyes. Using a razor really simplified my routine. Love love love her!

So I got one for myself, and checked out some of their other stuff as well. I saw this travel-sized makeup palette with 8 eyeshadows and 2 blushes (one for contouring, one for coloring). All for Php 100, such a steal right? But wait, there's more! They threw in a FREE lipgloss as well. I was curious so I decided to try it too. I also picked up their lash glue (my favorite) since I already ran out of it.

I went home with 4 products, and it only cost me Php 210 :) I'm totally happy with the lash glue, razor, and lip gloss, but I have yet to try the makeup palette. Will do a review once I road test it. For now, here are the photos:

 On the box, it claims to be "matted" but there are very fine sparkles scattered here and there. I like the shade selection, which is a mix of pastels and earth colors. Great for daytime looks

 The lipgloss, in shade "Georgia" is a nice, peachy red color. Kind of like mimics the natural lip color but gives it more pigment and a bit of sparkle. Good color pay-off but poor staying power, lasts only about 2 hours.
 My favorite lash glue ever! Dries fast, easy and not painful to remove, didn't cause me any kind of eye irritation. 
Newly discovered eyebrow grooming tool. I'm addicted already :)

Have you tried any of these products? Did you like them? Drop me a comment below.


  1. Wow sis! such a steal! Haven't tried anything from the products that you bought. The only thing that I bought from Nichido was their orangey lipstick and kohl eyeliner and I love it. The e/s looks pigmented, but it says it's matter di ba? May shimmer nga ng konti. Anyway nice Haul! :)

    1. thanks dear! :) sa hand swatches the shimmers are slightly obvious but when applied on the eyes di na cya mashado makita :)

  2. I bought that same palette with a liquid eyeliner as freebie! Don't they have it anymore?

    1. they still have it kaso lang i still have a bunch of eyeliners here and im super addicted to lip stuff haha :) how are the eyeshadows do they last long?
