Nowadays, more and more companies are becoming lenient and flexible with their policies inside the workplace. Some people even have the luxury to work from home, work anytime they want as long as they fulfill certain hours a day or week aka "flexitime"; some though, stretch the policy people tend to forget--dress codes.

Colourette Cosmetics' Starter Pak by Michelle Dy in "Boss Babe"

Last September, up and coming Filipino-owned Cosmetics Brand Colourette Cosmetics launched a lipstick bundle they collaborated with Filipino-Chinese Beauty Blogger and Youtube Vlogger, Michelle Dy! They're quite new in the beauty industry (they recently celebrated their first anniversary!) but they started making a buzz when they got Filipina-Australian Model Lily Maymac as their model and endorser almost a year ago. With a variety of killer lipstick shades, a great matte finish and knowing how to market their products to the Filipinas, Colourette Cosmetics sure know what they are doing!

Ever since I entered college, I became obsessed with my hair. I've tried straightening treatments, having full bangs, coloring my hair (full head, ombre, and balayage highlights!), digital perm (thrice!) and then the numerous Brazilian Blowouts that I've had the last couple of years. That is why it is very important for me to take good care of my hair all the time.

My first Colourpop Cosmetics Haul + swatches soon!

My first Colourpop Cosmetics haul!

Several weeks ago, I finally decided to try purchasing from the US. Why? Because it's still cheaper (especially when you buy in bulk) per piece as compared to buying it from re-sellers here who sell it for P450 above plus shipping fee! (P.S., @thebeautyclubph sells it for only P429. Find them on Instagram, Facebook, and Shopee and hook yourselves with the cheapest Colourpop products. You're welcome!)

So going back, I was really nervous at first of course, because this transaction is all about trust:
  1. you trust your instincts, that you have chosen the shades that will all suit you and your skin tone
  2. that your online payment has been received and this is not a scam (lol I always get paranoid transacting online, most especially if it's a thousand miles away!)
  3. that your order was processed and that the package will really arrive at your doorstep--straight from the US.
Well, it took about a month--which is quite long for a company who provides such service and less than P500 for the shipping, but heck yeah, not bad for my first time.

With the easy access to these things, we get to connect with people all over the world; some even use this to reach out to people and inspire. What better way to do both? Blogging!
