Make up Brushes by Zaful

First of all, I would like to tell you guys that I am not a beauty guru. I am just sharing my thoughts and opinions about make up. If you have other way in doing your make up, please continue in doing it because what matters most is the result.

Make up brushes is really a must in doing our make up. It helps us to flawlessly spread the beauty products on our face. Way back then, I only use my hands in applying make up. (Like the foundations and other stuffs). Make up brushes is not yet popular at that time and I used to live in a province where make up is not necessary but I noticed that applying make up with a brush has different effect than applying make up with our bare hands.

When Zaful contacted me to review their make up brushes, I got excited so I researched their company in the web. Unfortunately, I saw a lot of bad reviews about their company that leads me to lessen my expectations. When the items arrived in our doorstep, I was amazed. In just a glance on their brushes, you can immediately say that they are made of high quality materials. It really did exceed my expectations. I though that it will look like a trash just like the reviews that I saw but I was wrong. It is really true that we should not judge a book by its cover.

Zaful is a one stop online shop for today's most daring, exciting and edgy fashion apparel. Their affordable collections are all about redefining trends, design excellence and exceptional quality to satisfy the needs of every aspiring fashionista. The original idea about their company is to share the latest news and fashion trends on women’s clothing with fashion-forward, free-thinking girls, and we offer the fast fashion worldwide. 

It was established with a clear vision: to provide the very latest in compelling designs for the fashionably hip along with providing exceptional value, quality, and superb customer service.

Their exciting brands consist of emerging new designers and their discerning buyers have a keen eye for the best look anywhere so they can always find a style to call their own. Fashion is more than simply style: it also represents their aspirations, which is why their designs are as unique and individual as them.

FASHION FORUM BY SM

Dresses have become a trend these days and unfortunately, most stores here in our country sells the dresses that are of the same design. It really disappoints us when we see someone else show up wearing the exact same dress in an event so you'd better find the dresses that are out of the ordinary or shall we say "extraordinary".

Last August 12, 2016, SM launched its latest clothing line named Fashion Forum. It is a multi brand boutique that is located inside the Department Store of SM Seaside Cebu stocking contemporary labels from the United States. Their selections will effortlessly take you from day to night, work to weekend and cocktails/long gowns for formal events with reasonable prices. 

Don't you girls love it? Different variety of clothes in just one store. Your energy will only be drained in selecting the dresses to buy and of course, you will love that dresses because they are made out from high quality materials. 
Here are some of their dresses:


I would like to thank Bisaya Short Films and SM Seaside Cebu for inviting me to the fashion show of Fashion Forum by SM.

GET THAT EDGY VIBE WITH SAMMY DRESS (REVIEW)

Sammy Dress approached me last month to do a  review about their items. I haven't heard about it before so I checked their website. I was amazed the first time I saw it because they have fashionable and trendy items with prices that are a lot way cheaper than the other online shops. Navigating into their site is as easy as 1,2,3. They have wide variety of categories and within that categories, are sub categories. Don't be deceived with their brand name Sammy Dress because they don't only sell dresses but also Men's Clothing, Accessories, Toys, Housewares, Intimate Lingerie, Shoes and other fantastic items and gift ideas. If you can't find the items that you are looking for in their categories, you can simply type it into their search box. You can also sort and apply filters through the items to make you online shopping experience much easier. 
The items I ordered from Sammy Dress arrived here in Cebu within a week but I didn't have it delivered yet because I encountered some problems with DHL and Bureau of Philippines Customs. DHL is charging me some overpriced amount. The declared amount of my package is 20 dollars and DHL is also charging me with 19.37 dollars. They told me that it was a payment for customs duties so I filed a complaint about it but they did nothing. They kept on calling me to claim my package. I got irritated so I claimed it instead. The items where placed inside a plastic bag with a letter from Sammy Dress. I got it within a month because 19.37 dollars here in our country is already a big amount. I have to minimize my expenses in our school for me to pay it (Take note that my problem with DHL has nothing to do with Sammy Dress).
Wine red crop top

Retro Embossed Choker 
(Sammy Dress)
The word "edgy" keeps strolling on my mind this past few weeks so why not make it as an inspiration with Sammy Dress? Edgy comes up with a dark lips, black skirt, high cut sneakers or boots and a wine red top or depending on your style. You don't have to spend a lot to achieve the edgy vibe that you wanted. You only have to be creative and confident in  wearing it. This wine red crop top (click here) only cost 5.93 dollars and this retro embossed choker (click here) only cost 1.92 dollars. 

Wearing crop tops is my kind of thing so I chose this wine red crop top from Sammy Dress to review it. The crop top is very comfy and is perfect for Philippine weather. It was made out from a polyester cloth. If you're hesitant in buying it, don't worry because it is stretchable. The downfall of this crop top is that it keeps on going up. I pulled it back but it still goes up revealing my baby fats. This crop top has its own life. OK, I get it! That's what crop top is all about, showing a little bit of skin.

What I really like from the items I got from Sammy Dress is this retro embossed choker. I like it because it adds some edge to your style. When buying some fashion pieces, you should ask yourself first on what's the edge of that look compared to others. Don't worry if others will call you f*ckgirl when you wear a choker here in the Philippines because they are just insecure about it. What are you waiting for? To see is to believe! Try to explore now the website of Sammy Dress for an affordable fashion pieces.
