Current Craving: Melissa Shoes!

Craving #1: Melissa Ultragirl + Alexandre Herchcovitch

Melissa Shoes - Ultragirl + Alexandre Herchcovitch

I felt like salivating upon seeing this majestic Melissa Ultragirl flats in purple, which pretty much spells like an “apparition”! I know, I shouldn’t be craving like this when my pairs of Aldos are collecting cobwebs in their boxes. LOL :D

Melissa recently partnered up with Brazilian fashion designer Alexandre Herchcovitch to design this lovely printed pair of the former’s Ultragirl flat shoes. I seriously don’t know Mr. Herchcovitch, until I checked out this site. Going back, what I love about these shoes is their lovely geometric patterns as well as the mixing and matching of colours with it. I’m thinking of getting them in purple, although they’re also available in blue which is much easier to pair up with an outfit. More on this link.

Craving #2: Melissa Adana + Little Prince

Melissa Shoes - Adana + Little Prince

Dear Lord, save me from this madness! I think this one has been available for quite a while, but the always late-in-the-news me has just recently found it. Who doesn’t know this quaint story penned by Antoine de Saint-Exupery? :) Anyhoos, I’m loving them in red, which reminds me of Dorothy and her pair of ruby red slippers—well, in a much simpler and less scintillating piece. ;) On the other hand, I also want the black one. A pair costs Php 3,395.00 at Melissa’s online store, in which my pocket says, “you can only get one!”. :(

So here I am, still befuddled on what to get between the 2 (or 3) this Christmas. Maybe get both (all)? We’ll see! :D

Review: L’Oreal Revitalift Double Eye Lift

Having received this pretty red box which contains the whole L’oreal Revitalift line, I decided to give my mom a bottle of L’Oreal Revitalift Double Lifting for the face. I’m glad that my mom lovees the product, and even swears by it! Her face has become more supple and radiant in the course of finishing the whole bottle. Now, she’s even asking me to get her another bottle soon. Looks like someone knows what exactly to give her mom this Christmas! ;)

L'Oreal Revitalift Double Eyelift

On the other hand, I handed the other bottle, L’Oreal Revitalift Double Eye Lift, to my officemate who’s in her mid 20′s and is ardently in search of a perfect eye product to address her woes. Here’s a short review (or rather a testimonial[!]) by E:

Sagging bags, dark circles, horrendous crow’s feet—yes, my eyes were a miserable pair some four months back. Those were the days of late work nights and stress-filled, traffic-jammed afternoons. I was so dazed and spaced-out that I failed to notice my peepers practically screaming “save us!!” And so, there came Roanne, my officemate, who offered salvation in a nifty bottle of L’Oreal Double Eye Lift from L’Oreal’s Revitalift line. Totally exuberant from getting something for free, I tried the product out as soon as I got home. Lo and behold! The cute, red-toned bottle serves you 2 variations of their “eye saving” liquids in separate, easy-pump cartridges! The left pump gives you a milky-white cream that glides smoothly under your eye, while the right pump offers you a generous heap of cool-to-touch, transparent-reddish gel for your upper eyelid. It was so convenient, you can even apply make-up over the cream/gel! Chalk one up for L’Oreal! So after a week of daily application, I noticed immediately how my eyes lightened up. It was like they were given a bit of lift, and some of the revolting crow’s feet vanished. A month more of use and my eyes were smiling from their sockets! What more can a stressed and uber-haggard computer geek/web-developer/web designer/graphic artist ask for?

I’m super glad that she also loves it, and finds it effective as well! I recently just turned 25, and it’s high time for me to start taking care of my skin from daily aggressors which cause premature aging. Oh my, I can’t believe that time flies so fast! And so, I consider L’Oreal Revitalift to be one of my top choices when it comes to anti-aging skin care regimen. But of course, nothing beats daily sunblock application for starters. ;)
