REVIEW: Fashion 21 Duo Eye Enhancer and Eyebrow Gel

According to internationally renowned make-up artist, Bobbi Brown, “Defined brows instantly make you looked polished.” Yes, it’s so true that eyebrows speak louder than words. It can make or break your look if not groomed properly. Due to this notion, a few years ago, I really did my best to learn how to groom mine the scientific/professional way because I had a tendency to over-pluck or over-shave them, making them so thin that I looked like too old for my age.

Aside from maintaining and grooming our eyebrows according to the shape of our faces, having the right eyebrow tools and cosmetics that are reliable, easy to apply, smudge-proof, waterproof, has long staying power, and most especially affordable can keep our eyebrows on fleek in no time!

I’ve been using only two brands of eyebrow pencils with the same shade of dark gray for years, which I find not just very convenient to use but cheaper. I am frugal when it comes to purchasing cosmetics but I don't sacrifice quality and safety. I haven’t tried powder and gel forms yet. Sabi nga, nakasanayan na bakit kailangan pang humanap ng iba?

Not until Fashion 21 sent me a Perfect Brow Bundle through PerCX-Perfectly Creative X-tras. It was composed of one Duo Eye Enhancer (Dark Copper), one Eyebrow Gel (Copper Brown), and one eyebrow shaver (not seen on the photo). 

By the way, this Perfect Brow Bundle is the latest promo of Fashion 21 that has started on October 21 and shall last until October 31, 2016. This is available in all Fashion 21 Outlets nationwide.

When I saw the shades, I was quite hesitant to try them at first because based on experience, brown didn’t look good on me for some reason despite the fact that my hair color was black and darkest brown could fit me aside from dark gray. I referred to the color chart of eyebrows from Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual, by the way. But due to review purposes, I had no choice but to give them a shot!

First, I used Fashion 21 Duo Eye Enhancer (Dark Copper) on its own.

Description: This dual-purpose eye pencil is gentle on the skin during application, and doesn’t feel greasy despite its creamy texture. While it’s got its glitter on, don’t let that stop you from using it on your brows—the glittery element actually helps make your brows look fuller! This eye enhancer comes in six natural shades that will complement any brow color, hair color, and skin tone, as well as a brush for the brows.

Available Shades: Blonde, Dark Copper, Honey Blonde, Light Brown, Mahogany Brown, and Natural

Net Weight: 1.65 grams

- It’s easy to apply.
- It easily adheres to my eyebrows and skin although I need a few swipes to cover my entire eyebrows.
- The built-in brush can spread the product evenly without the fuzz.
- It’s buildable and workable.
- Surprisingly, it looks good and natural on me despite being brown in shade.
- It can be used in tight lining too.
- It’s sealed with a plastic where its ingredients are printed. This can guarantee that the item is fresh, unused, and new.
-  It’s super affordable at Php125.00! Not bad to purchase especially when you want to experiment on different shades. It’s highly recommended for starters in make-up application.

- It can’t last longer on its own and I need to set it with powder to make it stay put and hide portions with hair scarcity.

See how Fashion 21 Duo Eye Enhancer works for my eyebrows! It's close to the color that I usually apply on my them. It's not too light or dark. I also like using it for tight lining. Great product and very affordable!

Next, I applied Fashion 21 Eyebrow Gel (Copper Brown).

Description: This eyebrow gel is perfect for adding fullness to your brows. It comes in six natural shades to complement your hair and skin. The mascara-like applicator keeps you from putting on too much product by accident, and it’s smudge-proof too.

Available Shades: Blonde, Clear, Dark Brown, Light Brown, Reddish Brown, and Copper Brown

Net Weight: 8 grams

- It’s very quick and easy to apply.
- It easily adheres to my eyebrows and skin although I need a few swipes to cover my entire eyebrows.
- The built-in mascara-like applicator can spread the product evenly, hassle-free.
- It’s super buildable and workable.
- It can be used on its own.
- It’s really smudge-proof and lasts for hours.
- It’s sealed with a tight plastic that guarantees that the item is fresh, unused, and new.
- The durable acrylic bottle is where the ingredients are printed.
- It’s a great brow product that is affordable at Php165.00! Trying on different shades won’t break your budget. It’s highly recommended for pros and starters in make-up application.

 - Copper Brown is too light for me. I’d prefer dark or light brown perhaps, the shade closer to Fashion 21 Duo Eye Enhancer Dark Copper.

Finally, I used both at the same time which reinforced their staying power and being vibrant. To make it look natural though, I had to blend them with the Duo Eye Enhancer’s built-in brush. It could also look nicer if I got a darker shade of Eyebrow Gel. I just needed to tame the color by swiping a bronzer/dark brown eyeshadow.

To sum it all up, I am so happy that I’ve tried this Perfect Brow Bundle. Now I can have another affordable and effective alternative in grooming my eyebrows.

LoveHopeFaith Releases Its New Version of the Life Saver Watch

Two years ago, I blogged about LoveHopeFaith (LHF), which I considered as one of the most admired social entrepreneurs in the country today. 

To refresh your memory, it is an all-Filipino social enterprise that was founded as an instrument to provide care and assistance to a cancer patient. Fifty percent of the net proceeds from the purchases of LHF products are donated to its causes. As the business grew, LHF was able to add non-profit institutions to its list of beneficiaries.

In its commitment to provide affordable and quality products while giving back to the community, LoveHopeFaith Group (LHF) recently has released its latest version of the sought-after Life Saver Watch last July. 

Thank you so much, @lovehopefaithgroup and @petitemomma18 , for sending me and hubby a pair of #LifeSaverWatches (The big one is not on the photo because Paps is wearing it at work 😁.) It's such an honor to be one of your supporters. You never fail to upgrade your #watches! This Version 3.0 is more beautiful than the first version which I still use. This is something to be excited about! Yay! . . I am always proud to wear #lovehopefaithgroup 's Life Saver Watches because they represent a cause-oriented enterprise that aims to give hope and joy. 50% of the proceeds is donated to cancer patients.

REVIEW: Kids Plus+ Lotion, Powder, and Cologne

I am so happy that Kids Plus+ Hypoallergenic Bath and Shampoo fit Bunso’s body chemistry. There is so much to rave about them because they improve the integrity of his hair and skin. They are now softer, smoother, and smell fresher too. You may read my review on this LINK to know our positive experience.

To enhance and prolong the benefits of the above-mentioned products, they are best used with Kids Plus + Hypoallergenic Lotion, Powder, and Cologne.

Kids Plus+ Hypoallergenic Lotion

Description: A light lotion that’s smooth and gentle on the skin. With Nectapure to protect against pollution and 24-hour locked-in moisturizers and Vitamin E to leave kid’s skin feeling velvety smooth and soft all day. With a mild pH-balanced formula that won’t irritate kid’s skin and a fun, fruity scent that kids enjoy.

Ingredients: Aqua, Glyceryl Stearate, Ceteareth-20, Ceteareth-12, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Palmitate, Dicaprylyl Ether, Cetyl Alcohol, Pentoerythrityl Distearate, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Oleate, TEA, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Buddleja Davidii Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Extract, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Carboner, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tocopheryl Acetate, Xanthan Gum, Propylparaben

To Use: Apply and massage all over body. Use under adult supervision.

In my opinion…

Kids Plus+ Hypoallergenic Lotion is very light and easily absorbed by the skin. It doesn’t leave any greasy after-feel that makes it fit for application even during the hot weather but makes the skin cottony smooth and soft throughout the day. It leaves a nice fruity scent on the skin that is not overpowering. Only a small amount is needed per application so I think that our 100 ml bottle on hand can last longer.

Kids Plus+ Hypoallergenic Powder

Description: Gentle, ultra-fine powder ideal even for sensitive kids, With Allantoin that prevents irritation and inflammation while soothing kid’s skin and keeping it fresh and dry. The low-dusting mild formula also decreases the risk of inhalation. It comes in a fun, fruity scent that kids enjoy.

Ingredients: Talc, Fragrance, Polydecene, Silicon Dioxide, Allantoin

To use: Apply anytime, especially after bath. Make sure skin is dry. Use under adult supervision.

In my opinion…

It’s really low-dusting that makes it safe and easy to apply even to Bunso who has sensitivity to powder. All I need to do is to get a small amount of the product, massage it slowly on Bunso’s skin. The effect is like I am applying lotion that turns matte afterwards because it’s dense, easily absorbed by the skin, and doesn’t scatter all over the place. It smells refreshingly good!

Kids Plus+ Hypoallergenic Cologne

Description: A gentle low alcohol cologne with a special Hydraplus formula that contains moisturizers to help prevent dryness, leaving kid’s sensitive skin soft, smooth, and freshly fragrant. With a mild pH-balanced formula that won’t irritate kid’s skin.  This fun, fruity scent that kids enjoy lasts up to 3 hours before you need to reapply.

Ingredients: Aqua, Alcohol Denat., Fragrance, Butylene Glycol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PPG-20 Methyl Glucose Ether, Disodium Phosphate, Citric Acid

To use: Apply freely after bath or anytime of the day. Use under adult supervision.

In my opinion…

I usually apply cologne on Bunso’s hair aside from his skin. Like the bath, shampoo, lotion , and powder, it enhances the softness and smoothness of Bunso’s hair and skin. The fragrance stays longer than three hours which makes me not to reapply it often and that makes one bottle to go a long way.


Tupperware Brands’ Kids Plus+ Lotion, Powder, and Cologne are true to their claims and exceed my expectations. They are  formulated to lock-in moisture, protect kid’s skin from pollution, prevent irritation and inflammation while keeping it fresh-smelling, moisturized but dry and non-greasy, soft, and smooth all day. I highly recommend these kid's essentials.

This Kids Plus+ product line is available in all Tupperware Brands Showrooms near you at a very affordable price. Mommies on a tight budget need not to worry because it's real value for money.
