When I don't know what to blog, I write about the most recent thing that excited me. Today, it's this VMV Hypoallergenics Bag Caddy and a couple of their pink cosmetics! They just arrived on my doorstep yesterday and I immediately fell in love with the - guess - caddy. Haha. It looked like the perfect plein air painting kit and I was not mistaken. I'll show you later!
But first, some info: this limited edition VMV pouch is free for every P2,500 purchase as long as it includes a pink product. Part of the proceeds from the purchase of the pink items goes to Icanserve Foundation as VMV's contribution to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. ^_^
I love the caddy as it's slim yet it can be expanded easily. I like that I can also stuff it inside most of my bags, making it more convenient to move my things from purse to purse.
My main use for it though would be as a painting kit, lol. It fits my sketchbooks, paints, and brushes nicely! I can't wait to bring it out.
Aside from the caddy, VMV also kindly sent me two of their best-selling pink products - the Skin Bloom Blush in Rosebud and the Velvet Matte Lipstick in Flamingo. Off the bat I can see that these are gorgeous, flattering pinks, and again I'm not wrong!
The swatches are below. I haven't gotten the chance to wear the blush yet, but first impressions: the texture is silky, the color pay off is good. I also like that it has a bit of a sheen so that it doesn't look flat on the face. Rosebud is a color that I think is also universal - it'll look good on you no matter what your skin tone is.
I've already reviewed the VMV Velvet Matte Lipstick three years ago so I won't go into much detail, but I can say that it has a beautiful matte finish, although it's quite dry in texture. Do wear a lip balm first! Flamingo is a pretty warm pink shade that's bright but far from loud. It's a pink that we can all get behind.
So nice no? I hope you won't miss VMV Hypoallergenic's October campaign! It's until the 31st so hurry up if you're interested. You can avail of it on the VMV Online Store or in boutiques nationwide. ^_^
