Avon Shine Attract Lipstick Product Review

I got this lipstick from our resident AVON lady. She showed me the brochure and I saw this new product. I was curious so I ordered.  It was delivered the next day. I thought it was big but lo and behold. It's small. When I removed the transparent plastic cap, a sweet smell wafted to my nostrils. The lipstick has two parts. One transparent, shiny outer cover which acts like a lip gloss and one inner core which has the 'passionate red' tint'. This color was the one worn by the model Anne Curtis. One thing I don't like about the product is that the color does not last long. I have to reapply after a few hours.

The packaging

I don't think the passionate red is obvious. I only slid the lipsticl a few times over my lips. It sort of has a pinkish tint to it. Right? Anyway on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the highest. I give it a 4. I love the smell. Have you tried this lipstick? Tell me what you think, post a comment.

My ZALORA Wishlist

I noticed some bloggers posting their Zalora Wishlists. I was curious what this was about? 

So I searched google and sure enough there's an ongoing contest. I joined the bandwagon 

because I now consider myself as a full pledged blogger. Here's my wishlist.

This nude thong wedge sandal caught my eye while I was browsing Zalora's wide selection 

of wedge sandals. I have to own a pair of this because I'm sure this would fit me 

perfectly. The nude color will make my feet look like I'm floating on air. The buckle 

decor at the side is a striking accessory to this wedge. I'm a size 37 or 6.5 and it's 

available for this wedge. Woohooo!
What would go well with this nude thong wedges? I searched Zalora again and I found this 

sleeveless shift dress with chiffon center panel from Missy. I belong in the large size 

category so this dress would make me look smaller because of the black color. The boat 

neckline will emphasize my face. Perfect for a mother's day outing.

One great accessory for this ensemble is this XOXO Gleaming Tote with Double Handle. 

The color blends with the nude thong wedge sandals and dress. The gold rings also adds 

beauty to the bag. I can already imagine myself wearing all these. Sigh.

Another accessory for this ensemble is a watch made by Freeway.  It bears the signature 

of a renowned Philippine painter thus indicating that the wearer is a proud Filipino. The 

watch's straps features the artist's handiwork. Plus, the color matches the wedges, dress 

and bag.

I would have wanted a scarf but their selection does not have a color that matches my 

outfit/accessories so I'm opting for this pair of earrings. First, the color matches the rest 

of the outfit. Next, I like the 3 rings intertwined  made of brass gold.  This is the fifth 

item on my wishlist which means my list ends here.

Comments and suggestions are welcome. Do post and tell me what you think.I hope my 

wishlist will be granted. Happy Mother's Day to all Moms out there.

I got this email from My Angel's Box Shop:

I was happy of course. I immediately went to their Facebook page and selected which item I would buy. It was worth Php 500 so I would have to pay the 300 and 80 shipping fee. It was fine by me because I got a Php 200 discount. Anyway to make a long story short, I received the item last Monday I think. I only got to touch it when I got to the office now. Hence this post. Thank you My Angel's Box Shop for the continuous communication. I am also thankful because of the complimentary earrings which I am wearing now. 

I hope you will host more giveaways in the future and I hope I get to win a second time. Haha. Here's what I bought.

Thank you once again.

The Avengers Movie Review

Warning: Spoiler Alert

I watched The Avengers last night at SM Cinema CDO City in 3D. I was so excited and rightly so because the next showing time was at 6 pm and we bought tickets at 5:20. Haha. I was with my husband and I had fun watching the movie. We had fun. The movie indeed deserved all the hype. It was a great movie. It could become a classic. It even outshone my favorite movie of all time. Transformers the first installment. Although I know that the avengers are supposed to be comprised of more than six members, this particular avengers movie is composed of Captain America played by Chris Evans, Thor played by Chris Helmsworth, Bruce Banner/Hulk played by Mark Ruffalo, Iron Man played by Robert Downey Jr., Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner and Black Widow played by Scarlett Johansson. They all portrayed their parts well mind you under the direction of Joss Whedon who is famous for Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Let me start with Captain America. The leader of the group I think. He was still alive even though he was in ice for how many years. He was recruited by Nick Fury of SHIELD which originally stood for Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division. 
He is very serious. No hint of a funny bone at all. He demonstrated his leadership quality in the climax of the movie when he gave orders to the chief of police. He also gave instructions to the other members of the avengers. He's cute.
Thor. A hunk. He fought his adopted brother Loki in the movie. There was a funny moment when the other members of the avengers insisted that Loki was out of his mind and Thor mentioned that Loki was adopted. I laughed at that.

Next is the incredible hulk. Bruce Banner. Agent Romanova a.k.a. the Black Widow was tasked to convince him to join the avengers coz the fate of the world was at stake. What's funny was that the hut where they were located was surrounded by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents with guns pointed. Haha. I laughed at that.

I remember a moment when the Hulk wreaked havoc on SHIELD's state of the art aircraft cum battleship. And he was shot at by a soldier on a jet plane. He jumped on the plane and destroyed it. He then fell down and landed on an abandoned farmhouse? According to the old policeman who found him, he was butt naked. Go figure. It was pretty funny to me.
I like the black widow because she's smart, fights really well and she's not afraid like being hurled by Captain America to an alien's aircraft. She threw two aliens down and rode the third to navigate the craft. Brilliant, just brilliant. She's also a good actress like when she interrogated Loki and pretended that she was interested in finding Hawkeye in order to repay a debt. Loki bought her pretension. I would never have guessed it. Just Brilliant.

Now onto iron man. He was the funniest superhero in the movie. That's my opinion my dear readers. I found it funny when he tried to release the hulk by poking Dr. Bruce Banner with a pointy thing. Haha. He delivered  the moment effortlessly. He fought with Thor at first and when Thor's hammer hit Captain America's shield, wham! I was practically blown away. The fight sequence was totally out of this world. Great visual effects. Kudos to whoever's behind the great visual effects. Iron man is a billionaire, playboy, philanthropist. This guy's awesome. He was the one who flew with the nuclear weapon, redirecting it through the portal to the enemy's mothership destroying it in the process. I held my breath when he lost consciousness and fell through the closing portal back to earth. The part where he was thrown by Loki through the window and he fell from his own tower but he remotely released his iron man suit and it followed him down and then he wore his suit in midair. Remarkable. Or the part when he landed on his penthouse and each part of his suit was removed while he was walking into his penthouse after activating green energy to power his tower. What a phenomenal  movie.

Hawkeye meanwhile started out as a good guy. Then when Loki used the Tesseract to emerge in our world, he turned Agent Barton a.k.a. Hawkeye to work for him. Loki had a scepter that has the same material as the Tesseract. He also turned a doctor to build him a device that opens a portal through which a horde of alien forces can go through to conquer the earth. Hawkeye led some rogue agents to steal iridium which was needed to build the device. He's a skilled archer. He shot an arrow loaded with explosives to the SHIELD aircraft. He then proceeded inside to rescue Loki who was captured by the avengers during the steal. He fought with the Black Widow who gave him a severe blow to the head such that it broke the spell that Loki had over him. From then on, he fought with the avengers.

Every great movie has always something to do with the superheroes' nemesis. Loki, the adopted brother of Thor is this movie's villain. At first I thought, aaahh, he's just like a spoiled brat. But at second glance he's got substance after all. Thor attempted to win him over but to no avail. Tom Hiddleton plays Loki. He fit the part perfectly. I loved it when he commanded the people to kneel before him because he's a god. Talk about having a superiority complex.

He wants to command the people with power but as we all know that doesn't work in our world. A lol moment was when he was slammed by the Hulk on the floor of Stark tower's penthouse. I mean literally slammed left and right like a rag doll. He kept insisting he's a god. Haha, a god who can be slammed? Are you kidding me? It was quite funny. Joss Whedon rocks!

I almost forgot Nick Fury. The man behind the avengers. He was the one made the group into a team. He always thought that there would come a time that beings from other worlds would come to earth and attack it. That was when Thor landed in Mexico. He is also a brilliant man. Imagine commanding a state of the art ship with stealth capability. (To me it was just equipped with mirrors.) Encouraging the avengers to help protect the earth from hostile invaders was his job. He works for SHIELD.  The Tesseract was first in SHIELD's possession before Loki stole it for his own evil purpose.

 If you have not watched the movie, well you should. It's really great. I would watch it again if time permits. I give it 5 stars.
