Globe GCash AMEX Virtual Card (Prepaid Subscriber)

Finally I'm now registered in this service. It wasn't easy to get KYC'd until this year coz Globe Centers were not aware of this new service that Globe was offering. I even got pissed everytime I visited Globe coz they always have excuses like I can cash-in/out at SM bills payment or their gcash person is out for a break or I have to wait for hours coz they have an event going on. Then on January 11 or 12 I read from Globe's website that starting January 11, 2013 you can now get KYC'd at all Globe Centers! So I decided to wait a few days hoping I won't get disappointed again when I visit Globe then just today I visited and the same person greeted me and I told politely that I need to be KYC'd at the center to validate my GCASH account and he gave me an order# directed me to the customer service and there's no line so I got called asap then I talked to the CSR and he asked for a valid ID and he processed it. I waited about less that 15mins I think. That's it. They just scanned my ID and update their database. I don't even have to fill-up a form and wait for a text confirmation as instructed in Globe's website. I think that was for new GCASH subscribers. So, I immediately tried signing up online for the GCASH AMEX on my phone just to confirm if it was validated already and I got disappointed until I was on my way home and tried signing up again and voila! My subscription was successful! It was easy and fast! I already made my first transaction in Itunes and it was successful but deducted P41.89 twice so be careful when updating your Itunes payment details coz I didn't edit my billing at first so I had to update again that's why I got deducted twice.

I haven't updated my MyShoppingBox account coz it says on my manual that it'll be up after 24hrs so I'm not yet making
purchases coz I wanna make sure that my
MyShoppingBox account is settled. I'm excited to make my first purchase and hoping it'll be cheaper than buying imported stuff here as I love to buy/order imported stuff. So, I'm hoping I'll spend less than ordering from Pre-Order shops.

So,my account in My-Shoppingbox took so long to be activated but even though I can already order but I had problems with my account coz I can't login using my password. I think there was a mixup when I 'tried' to signup at My-Shoppingbox but didn't continue and cancel it so I think that was the problem why I can't login in my account at My-Shoppingbox. The customer service is very nice and helpful.

Even before Inwas able to login in My-Shoppingbox account I already tried to purchase just to try how this works before I order expensive stuff so I ordered from Amazon this empty palette which I'll talk about in another post but it's not yet on my hands coz I opt for shipnent by sea. But I'm happy to share that my order from MAC Cosmetics has already arrived just this afternoon and I'll talk about it in another post including te timeframe from when I ordered it til I had it in my hands. For this order I opt for shipment by Air.

Overall I can say I'm happy with my GCASH as I have been a customer for years. Hope they keep up the good service. Thank you Globe for coming up with this service!

Fran Wilson MOODmatcher 12hr Lip Color in Orange

I wanna share a lip product I've been loving that I use it everytime I go out! It's a mood matching lipstick! I got it from Beauty Bar for only P195.00. It stains my lips so I love it more! The stick is orange/peach but it changes to peachy pink or pink. The color is just right not too light nor too dark. It smells and taste like wax but it's ok. Doesn't dry my lips much like it doesn't bother me unlike other lipsticks which leaves my lips very chapped even if I haven't removed the lipstick. Can't say how long it stays on my lips but it sure does have stain even after you ate which I love because I don't like reapplying everytime I eat or drink and most of all this doesn't show the pigmentation on my lip line when I apply and have this on all day unlike lipgloss/balms.

Do I recommend: Definitely Yes!

Will I repurchase: Yes, I'd love to try other colors! But for now I prefer to finish this before buying new ones but who knows! :)

My First MAC Cosmetics Makeup!!! :)

So I wanna share my first MAC Cosmetics makeup and short review about it! These were bought at Duty Free Ph.

Fix+ (100ml/$20):
I love the scent and I love to use this after applying powder foundation to avoid cakiness/flakiness. I love to use this to freshen up my face and to blot oil during the day.

Paint Pot in Groundwork ($21):
I love that this doesn't crease on my eyelids and stays put and doesn't smudge but I don't think it makes my eyeshadow last longer coz I think it dries quickly when I apply it on my lids so the eyeshadow doesn't stick much but I love wearing this alone as I said it's smudgeproof. I also don't like that this dries up fast so what I do is I put a small amount in a separate container for everyday use so my big pot won't dry up quickly.

Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark (for contour) ($34):
I love using this to contour my cheeks and nose. Can't say much about this coz As I said I only use this for contour. Don't think it gives me breakout.

Lip Erase in Dim ($25):
So, I have mixed feelings about this. I've been wanting to buy this for so long and kinda feel disappointed coz it mixes with my lipstick when I apply it. A little/tiny bit goes a long way to erase lips and to let it dry before you apply lipstick over it. I don't hate it but I won't be repurchasing this again. Don't use this very much that I even forget to use it to erase my birthmark under my lower lip.

Lip Pencil in In Synch ($16):
Don't use this much but I like using this to outline my lips to erase pigmentation or to highlight my cupid's bow. It doesn't last long as a lipliner and when I apply lip product over it doesn't stay put so I wanna try the pro longwear one coz I swatched it and it doesn't smudge. I can't find the one I swatched so I ended up getting this but it's still okay.

Date bought: Dec. 20, 2012 @ Duty Free Phils.
