glamorous shade is it not?

N21 is red with blue undertones that also shouts

Review on Fairy Drop Mascara

I told you on my  HK haul that I really I got curious of Fairy Drop mascara, for this has been the most requested item on my every pre order batches. Totally curious that I bought 2 more of them while I still have one in stock on my drawer.  I bought this one few months ago but it never call me out so I didn't use it. hmmmm....Or  maybe my attention was not really on make up for the last few months that's why. 

Anyway,  I got the order again and this time  it reminded me to see what the rave is all about. 

here ia nice cute packaging of Fairy drop.  

Look at that brush! ha ha ha! Its so cute! I love that the bristles were not clump to each other and that there's not too much ink that comes out of the tube when I pulled the wand out . 

Here is my first application,  my inner lashes look  clump but actually they're not,  see the volume on those lashes? nice right?

here on my 2nd and final coat noticed that my lashes were not curled up but I don't really mind because I don't use those eyelash curlers often anyway.  I want my lashes to be at ease at all times. Or easy to say I'm so lazy to curl my lashes! lol 

FAIRY DROPS Mascara’s brush is particularly designed. Lumpy brush ensures perfect contact with every lash for volume, curly and no clump eyelash look.

Water-proof formula works to resist water, sweat and sebum. Long-lasting wear is guaranteed.

The only problem I get from Fairy drop is that It wasn't easy for me to take it off. I need a make up remover or eye make up remover just to melt it off.  Other than that? No problems. no raccoon eye, no clumping and no shedding of lashes. 

Hey! This baby is only Hk$98.00 equivalent to Php 588.00 per tube. 

And compared to  one of the high end brand I used lately? I'd rather have this!

Bourjois Oh So Shine Paris Show Time Collection



Bright, block colours are what the fashion editors are all talking about! We are right on trend with our new radiant nail collection – a “must-have” for the ultimate high-fashion colour blocking look!
Our colourful and trendy nail enamel shades are the key fashion accessory to match every outfit and brighten up your day!
The formula is enriched with vinyl for an ultra-shiny lacquered result! Forget the sparkles and shimmer, our pure lacquered shades offer smooth and radiant colour.

I'm sure they do. Look at these beautiful fresh colors! I heart stopped for a while when I saw them on the stands of Watsons. I wasn't able to get a good photo while I was in watsons last week and so 
 I've taken from Bourjois FB page. lol

From L- R Jaune Trendy 39,  Rouge Fashionista 41, Bleu Model 44, Violet Couture 40, Orange Creation 42, Lime Catwalk 38 and Magenta show 43

As much as I really wanted to get all these beautiful colors I was only given the chance to get 2 on this collection. As to why? You'll soon find out.  LOL

On this collection the only thing I wasn't able to get  that I really really like is the Bleu Model 44 which I  think was immediately snagged before I arrived in Watsons Ferry Pier. Argh 

Anyway, here are my two lovely haul. 

Jaune Trendy is one my favorite.
 Aside from being the IT color this summer it also reminds me that I can take the sun anywhere  and anytime I want.   

The mustard  yellow tone is also not too overpowering. it also reminds me of  American Apparel Nail polish Manila thought this one  easier to apply.

Then comes Lime Catwalk ! Woot !
A nice  light , creamy green shade that I think is a good shade to cool me up during this summer heat

Aside from Lime green this shade reminds me of  green apples and new grass on spring too. 

Ah Bliss!

Globe PowerRoam and BDU are Both Pain in the Arse!

People who wanted to be in touch to their loved ones all the time exert all effort and find all ways to make a connection to their families and friends.  May it be through computers or through phone. We're happy that Blackberry together with BIG philippine telecommunication companies like GLOBE gives that both services, BUT of course it comes with a price. 

I'm a frequent flyer and so I sought after good deals on how to use BB services with  minimum charges. 

I always use BDU every time I go to HK. But on our schedule to go to US I  noticed that there was no offer of BDU services going to the said destination. Then my friends told me about POWER ROAM.

I went to Globe's Power Roam website and here's what it says. 

As per their website this is how you can enjoy Power Roaming

Spending your holidays abroad shouldn’t keep you from constantly getting in touch with your loved ones at home. And with POWERROAM, the latest International Roaming service from Globe, you’ll no longer worry about steep roaming bills again!
For as low as PhP499 per month, you can call, text, and surf in 15 selected countries — Hong Kong (CSL), Singapore (Singapore), USA (T-Mobile), China (China Unicom and China Mobile), Thailand (AIS), Malaysia (Maxis), Macau (CTM), Canada (Rogers), Australia (Optus), Taiwan (Taiwan Mobile), Indonesia (Telkomsel), India (Bharti Airtel), United Kingdom (UK Vodafone), South Korea (SK Telecom), Saudi Arabia (Mobily) — and enjoy as much as 75% savings on roaming rates. That’s up to 3 call minutes more, 15 text messages more, and 50 emails more!
But if you still can’t get enough of POWERROAM, you can also avail of two other plans, which are affordably priced at PhP999 and PhP2999. All plans are fully consumable and valid for 30 days.
So, how do you start using POWERROAM?
That’s easy. If you’re a Globe postpaid plan subscriber, all you have to do is simply register via text here in the Philippines or abroad*.

Text POWERROAM  and send to 2884.**
Sample to send to 2884: POWERROAM 499 01/01/11
For more information about POWERROAM, text POWERROAM INFO to 2884.

*Roaming rates apply for registrations abroad.
**No need to indicate the date for same day activation.

Good deal isn't it? 

So June 9 before departure I applied my number for the POWER ROAM 2999 and it was granted right away. Great! 

3 days later I got a message that I've already consumed 50% of it.(sorry text wasn't showing up anymore so I couln't take a pic) And I waited a few days  for Globe to inform me that I've fully consumed my power roam so I could apply again. But nothing came. 

As the days passed by I couldn't wait to receive any text from Globe,  again to inform me that Power roam was  all consumed.  But still nothing. 

And so I put the decision on my hands and applied for it. 

notice that I applied for the 2nd PR  but there were no answers (that's why there were no gaps inbetween texts)

2nd attempt still nothing

3rd attempt I got one but I the one I was expecting.

I tried other venues

asked for infos

and help but still no news if I already consumed my first PR. 

or if my request was granted.

continuously I tried  and  to get a proper answer but still no avail.

at this point I was really disappointed on GLOBE

On my last attempt, I stopped and  thought maybe my application was over lapping so I sent POWER ROAM OFF.

and the answer was very very helpful Globe!!!! (look at what answer I got above)

I arrived in Manila June 28 2011 but still no confirmation up to date that my power roam was granted nor  consumed. 

June 30, I  while I was at ATC I could get any thing from my BB. No text, no call, no nothing. And since I was  already at the mall I said I'd better go to Globe to ask whats going on. 

I talked to a Lady Sale Representative  and I was informed that my line was cut due to my over billing of Php 27,000.00. I was so shocked and I told her that I haven't received any billing for the month of June yet. And that my bill  is always out on the 10th of every month.

For that she told me she couldn't do anything until she sees the latest statetment.  At the back of my mind this is rediculous ! Here I am trying to do the right way  but GLOBE Service Center couldn't do anything  to help.

I told her about my Power Roaming application issue. She was willing to help me so she got all the same information as above and said she'll try to reconnect my line until such time that I receive my bill and asked me to come over the office as soon as I get the statement. 

Okay I said, I'll do what you asked me but kindly take note of my complaint. We agreed on it and I left the Globe Service Center with a reconnected line.

Today, I got my bill and it's a F**king sky rocketing  35K!!!! With 3 Power Roam 2999 charges + Blackberry Charges of  almost  15k! What in the world was that????

And oh we're not yet done there huh. A few days after I wen to Globe SC, I went to Hong Kong for 5 days with my hubby. So I applied for BDU 40 which is good for 5 days.  On my mind I thought maybe I won't have any problem with this one since I already know how it works. And so far it hasn't given me so much headache.

Here's what  they offer

Those who will travel to Hong Kong (CSL), Singapore (Singtel), Thailand (AIS), Malaysia (Maxis), Macau (CTM), Australia (Optus), Taiwan (Taiwan Mobile), Indonesia (Telkomsel), India (Bharti Airtel), and South Korea (SK Telecom) – won’t have to worry about your bills when you came home, because you can already avail unlimited mobile data roaming at your destination with the following cheaper flat rates:

US$ 10 for 1 (one) day
US$ 27 for 3 (three) days
US$ 40 for 5 (five) days

To enjoy the service, you’ll need to signup for Bridge DataRoamUnlimited by sending SMS to 2884 (either here in the Philippines or abroad) using the following format:
BDU[space]Country[space]Denomination[space]Start Date mm/dd/yy

For example, if you want to stay in Singapore on February 1-3, 2011 and want to avail Globe Telecom’s unlimited data roaming for 3 days – just key in:

BDU Singapore 27 02/01/11

and send to 
If you want to activate the unlimited data roaming service on the same day you signup, you don’t need to indicate the start date in the SMS format. That means you’ll just have to key in:

BDU Singapore 27

and send to 2884

Note that if you signup for the unlimited data roaming while in abroad, your account will be charged for the transaction using the current roaming rates. So it’s better to signup while you’re still here in the country to avoid additional charges. 

This unlimited mobile data roaming from Globe Telecom is country-specific. That means if you happen to travel from Singapore to Thailand and your subscription is still active in Singapore, you’ll have to signup a separate plan for Thailand following the same steps above. 

so here I am once again. 

note that I applied on July 8 Friday and  approved on the same day.  and it says it will expire on the 12th of July which is fine because I'm back in Manila by then. 

so I'm not ecpecting any more charges.

and that I can relax a wee bit 

But no my dears,  together with my PR issue. There's an inclusion of my  BDU 40 USD ( php 1,548.74 which I expected ) and  a non expected Blackberry Services of Php  2.213.28! 

What's happening here?

Where is the unlimited data roaming of BDU?

What's going on with Power Roam?

You give good promos and excellent advertisements but POOR on service!

Globe Telecoms, Please tell me what happening to you?
