EH Duo Fibre Brush + mini eyelash curlers

Paying a visit to Etude House during its first couple of weeks in Manila had been frustrating because everything I was interested in getting was sold out but when I got back from vacay, the hype had died down so I was finally able to get their stippling brush!

The stippling brush costs PHP 428 and I was urged by the SA's to get a little something extra because I was so close to PHP 500 which entitled me to a freebie.

I got the collagen eyepatch for PHP 78 and so I got a folder with the guy on Boys Over Flowers (I'm not a fan, but my niece watched this series and might like it.)

What I didn't know was that for a PHP 500 purchase, I could have gotten the pink card instead. More info on the pink card here. Why wasn't I told about this earlier?

Actually, I had a different goal that day. Remember this?

I have always wanted to get a backup before in case something like this happened:

See that white line on the left? I kinda pressed it a little too hard one time and it snapped. It's not completely broken but I don't know what to do to repair it.

But it was too late when I got back to EH. The curlers were gone. Now a PHP 1K purchase gets you a mini bb cream thingie. I didn't want it.

Luckily, I found the perfect replacement:

The Allue mini eyelash curler works just as well as the EH Code B one, plus you can get one at any HBC store. I got mine on sale, too. (PHP 50- about 1 USD.) The barbie pink color might be a plus for some of you girls out there, but I still think the EH one is prettier.

I think mini curlers work better on me. Here's another one I got recently:

The Fanny Serrano mini curler costs PHP 125 (less than 3 USD). The width of the curler is about half of a regular eylash curler which makes it perfect for curling just the outer lashes for a kind of cat-eye look. It pinched a little when I first started using it, but it works great when you get used to it.

Thanks for dropping by!

P.S. Big news next week. Stay tuned!
