Celeteque DermoCosmetics: Long-Wear Eyeshadow Palettes In Warm Brown, Pink Orchid and Smokey Grey

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 Philippines



PRODUCT REVIEW: CELETEQUE DERMOCOSMETICS' LONG WEAR EYESHADOW PALETTES IN WARM BROWN, PINK ORCHID AND SMOKEY GREY

Today, I will be sharing my reviews for the all new long-wear eyeshadow palettes by Celeteque DermoCosmetics. I got this gift from Celeteque last Christmas together with their other new products and this is my first post of review and swatches for the new items. 

The shades of the palettes are Warm Brown, Pink Orchid and Smokey Grey. The palette comes with a lightweight primer and easy to blend eyeshadow. Mainly, the product contains Shea Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) and Evening Primrose Oil all of which help keep our lids moisturized and smooth making it easier to blend. 


The palette is small and it fits the palm of my hand making it easier to include in my makeup pouch. It comes with a double sided brush and foam wand. 


I will separate the review per palette to make reading it easier. The weight of the eyeshadow is not indicated both in the box and the kit. Each palette is composed of three shades of eyeshadow and a primer. I love how the eyeshadow kit comes with a primer. Its the first time that I encountered that its already included in the set because usually I buy separate primers for my eyeshadow like the Urban Decay Potion. 



WARM BROWN


Warm Brown is the easiest eyeshadow palette shades to use. It has neutral colors that are wearable during day and nighttime. This color palette is good for everyday use. 

For product description and list of ingredients, check it out below: 




Pros: 

The colors are warm and neutral. It will suit any skin tone. The colors lasts long for at least 4 to 6 hours even without the use of the primer. 

The colors are more vivid when used with primer but its still sheer compared to the other Celeteque DermoCosmetics palettes.

The manufacturing date and expiration date is posted on the box. The batch number is posted at the back of the palette. With these dates posted, its easier to track the makeup. 

Cons: 

The colors are pale and sheer upon application. I needed to several layers to get my desired outcome.


SWATCH:


PINK ORCHID


The Pink Orchid with its combination of pink hues and neutral colors is also wearable even during daytime. Its also perfect for that "no makeup" makeup look. 

For the product description and ingredients, check out the photos below: 




Pros: 

Compared to the Warm Brown, this one lasts longer even without primer. The lasting power is at least 6 to 8 hours. 

The Pink Orchid is more pigmented and vivid than the Warm Brown specially the pink color but its still need to be applied in several layers. I like to use this more for my everyday look.

The manufacturing date and expiration date is posted on the box. The batch number is posted at the back of the palette. With these dates posted, its easier to track the makeup. 

Cons: 

The colors still needs several layers to get the intensity of the color desired but its more pigmented compared to Warm Brown.


SWATCH:


SMOKEY GREY

Going to a party, Smokey Grey is your choice of eyeshadow palette. If used lightly, you can still use it even during daytime. Its the perfect choice for a smokey eyes look. 

For your reference, the product description and list of ingredients is posted below. 




Pros: 

The Smokey Grey is the best choice if you want your eyes to look bold. The combination of shades are great for a smokey eyes look. 

The colors are pigmented compared to Warm Brown and Pink Orchid so make sure you start applying lightly first and build it up slowly. 

This one though is a little powdery compared to the other palettes. Its best used with the included primer to avoid excess powder going around all over your eyes.

The lasting power is decent from 6 to 8 hours even without the use of the primer. 

The manufacturing date and expiration date is posted on the box. The batch number is posted at the back of the palette. With these dates posted, its easier to track the makeup. 

Cons: None noted.


SWATCH:


Overall, all the eyeshadow palettes are nice specially with their choice of colors but in my opinion it will be better if its more affordable. Each palette costs 725php for only a combination of 3 colors and one primer. Though the advantage of this eyeshadow palette is its lasting color and its made with ingredients good for the skin which is amazing but the building up of colors to get the desired look is quite disappointing specially if you are in a hurry to do your makeup. Aside from that downside, its a great eyeshadow palette. Its the only palette and brand that I encountered that has a primer included in their kit. The kit is also easy to bring when you travel plus it comes with a dual ended wand. 

Buy again? 80%

Overall Rating: 3/5

Price: 725php per palette

Where to buy? Celeteque online shop, Watsons, Beauty Section in Department Stores. 

Thank you for reading my review and have a great time everyone! 

The Third Eye Wellness: A Place For Self-Development

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 Philippines


THE THIRD EYE WELLNESS: A PLACE FOR SELF-DEVELOPMENT

There are times that a person does not feel complete, happy or satisfied that it seldom results into depression or sometimes it manifests physically into an illness. I never thought that a self-development activities and services could actually help a person's well-being but seeing it first hand during the event of The Third Eye Wellness last February 21, 2017, I think its possible and I feel like I need a therapy soon too!

The Third Eye Wellness originally came from Dubai and it was launched in the Philippines since 2013. The center is lcoated at Bonifacio Global City. This center is a mind-body-energy wellbeing center providing you with health and wellness activities and services. Through self-development, health and nutrition, alternative healing and holistic beauty, we focus on the journey going inward to reflect outward. 


The founder and owner of The Third Eye Wellnes is Ms. Sanaiyah Gurnamal and she is a certified Practitioner and Instructor of ThetaHealing in the country, she is also certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Past Life Regressionist, Reiki Practitioner, Access Bars Practitioner and Pranic Healer in addition to being well-versed in a variety of other healing techniques. 

She shared her experience during the program that her journey to understanding mind, body and energy began after a synchronus unfolding of events in her life. She completed a degree in Economics and Marketing from University of Pennsylvania and she pursued a graduate Gemologist in Gemeological Institute of America. 

She herself tried the power of self-development and she understood the importance of mind-body-energy health and well being while in Dubai. She became widely interested then took her certification in Clinical Hypnotherapy from the California Hypnosis Institute in 2008. She further received her Doctorate in Clinical Hypnotherapy from the Indian Board of Althernative Medicine in 2009 and her Teacher's Certification thereafter. Today, Ms. Sanaiyah is pursuing her Post-Graduate degree in Regression Therapies from Tasso University in Netherlands. She recently received her Masters in Entrepreneurship with honors from Ateneo Graduate School of Business in 2015. 

Back in 2009, Sanaiyah experienced an instant healing through ThetaHealing, a healing technique that is a perfect blend of science with spiritually. She became a certified ThetaHealing Practioner and Instructor and shes uses this on her clients. She gave a demonstration during the event. She will scan the client, touch her hand and make the client open up their concerns and worries in life. From there, she will start the ThetaHealing. ThetaHealing helps you address your problems hidden or not and help you focus on how to fix it. 

Sanaiyah is now a resident guest on Magic 89.9's Boys Night Out radio show. She regularly appears in CNN Philippines and often invited to speak at events and seminars hosted by organizations such as St. Luke's Medical Center Global City, Miriam College, Asian Development Bank, DTI and Meralco. 

While waiting for the program to officially start, we were seated and served with food from Chakra Cafe inside Third Eye Wellness. The cafe is an advocate of health and nutrition while educating us about our energy system and our chakras. (Chakra means energy point in a body)


Chakra Cafe embodies the "you are what you eat" attitude and by that, it means to remind you that your state of mind is a reflection of your physical body and what you put into it. They serve organic options, healthy snacks and even Elixir juices and smoothies along with soups, salads, sandwiches and main dishes. 




Check out their menu from soups, to main dishes, salad, sandwiches, tea and smoothies. There are a lot of dishes you could choose from and its all healthy food!








Besides the Chakra Cafe, they also have a spot for spa called Transcend Spa and Nails. In this spa, you will get to experience holistic treatments and beauty therapies that nourish mind, body and soul. Each spa and nails treatments is a therapeutic experience meant to invigorate mind, body and senses. I was able to try their back massage for a few minutes while waiting for the program and it was able to relive my sore and stiff muscles specially on my shoulder area, I want to try their whole body massage experience with them soon. 

To transcend is to go beyond. Their spa and nail bar is not ordinary because their treatments starts with the body but penetrates deep into your energy and emotions. Third Eye Wellness' Philosophy is evident in their spa and nail technicians, who are trained in alternative healing techniques with their "healing hands".  Transcend Spa and Nails redefines the concept of beauty, focusing not only on the external but also the internal experience. 


For the list of the massage and body scrubs offered at The Third Eye Wellness, kindly refer to my photos below: 





ThetaHealing is demonstrated during the program and this technique was created by Vianna Stibal in 1995 during her own personal journey back to health after she healed from cancer. The technique includes a meditation and spiritual philosophy. It is a training method for your mind, body and spirit that allows you to clear limiting beliefs and live life with positive thoughts, developing virtues in all that we do. 


Ms. Sanaiyah shared that she is being asked for services of ThetaHealing in conjunction with conventional medicine. It is found out that it works better together. It teaches how to put use one's own natural intuition, relying upon the unconditional love of Creator of All that is to do the actual "work". 

In a ThetaHealing Class, you will learn how to use the mind-body-energy healing technique that uses Universal life force energy to produce instant and permanent change. You will also learn how to heal your body naturally from pain, disease, and dysfunctions as well. 

From the demonstration, I am inspired that it can help improve relationships, to be more successful in career and at home. The ThetaHealing technique is best described as an attainable miracle for your life. According to Ms. Sanaiyah, session usually take from one to four but can exceed depending on the case. 

Two clients that now studies ThetaHealing also shared their experience and how happy and more positive they are now in life. 


They also have personal Healing Sessions work for an individual level through complimentary therapies, energy healings, personal readings and consultations. They have Tarot readers and ThetaHealers that can help clients achieve resolution and healing in every area of life. 


You can also get books, crystals, aromatherapy essentials, gifts and so much more at their center. Their space is a haven for those who engage in wellbeing and pursue a wellness lifestyle. The Third Eye Wellness' goal is to help you achieve harmony in mind, body and energy. Their services create physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and rejuvenation while guiding you towards a lifetime of peace, happiness and abundance. 


I was able to get vouchers and I plan to use it soon specially since I am feeling unsecured with my current job. As shared on my previous blog post, I am stressed out and I feel unfulfilled and I think ThetaHealing will help me and some massage or nails spa will ease some of the stress. Once I used the services, I will be sharing my experience. Thank you for reading and have a great time everyone!
