Friday, May 13, 2016 Getting the best out of online shopping through cashback!

Truth be told, online shopping does get the best of us (and our pockets) most of the time. I used to be the type of person who would prefer to check the store out just to make sure that the product I’m buying is in good condition and is really what it is in person. However, the rise of online shopping made life easier by being just one click away from the product you’ve been drooling over, so I gave in! Online shopping has become one of my guilty pleasures and just when I thought it wouldn’t get any better, ShopBack made its way to the Philippines! 

ShopBack is a cashback website where you get directed to your desired online store. As you have purchased from the online store, you will get a percentage of your money back! Awesome right? It’s like ordering your favorite Frappuccino, getting additional whip cream and a discount for your drink! It’s super easy and you yourself could check it out! Go to and I’ll give you a run-through of how it works. 

Before we proceed with the steps, you might want to check this review from The Philippine Star and this one from Philippine Daily Inquirer. 

Step 1. Go ahead and create an account for free here. Make sure to fill in all the details before submitting. 

Step 2. You may now look for your preferred store in ShopBack. You will also see the corresponding cashback percentage in this window. Click on the store and you will get redirected to the store’s online site. In my case, I’ll be shopping in Sephora (obviously!) and for up to 5% cashback too!

Step 3. Begin shopping! Make sure to shop in the site you were directed to so you’re sure that the cashback is credited in your account. 

Step 4. You can check your ShopBack account for your cashback information. You will be getting your cashback within 48 hours. The amount will first show up under the Pending tab, once the merchant has approved your purchase, you will see it under the Redeemable tab. Once you have reached P300.00 worth of redeemable balance, you may now opt to cash it out to your bank account or Paypal. 

If you want to know more on how this works, click this link and you will be brought to ShopBack’s instructional page. You can also calculate how much you get in return by just putting the amount you wish to spend. 

Using ShopBack doesn’t just give allow you to shop conveniently online but it also gives you that one of a kind experience through the cashback system. In fact, it doesn’t leave you completely empty handed when you get too carried away with shopping because, hey, you also get a part of your money in return!

Covergirl TruNaked Palettes Review (Goldens & Roses)

One of the hardest things to do when you're into make-up is finding the perfect eyeshadow palette that would suit both your budget and your standard. It's quite difficult to stay thrifty when it comes to finding good quality palettes that could match the high-end ones from brands such as Urban Decay, Too Faced, and Tarte just to name a few. Trust me, scavenging through different drugstore brands for a promising eyeshadow palette is not easy. 

The Covergirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palettes come in three different kinds namely Nudes, Goldens and Roses. Since they are still not available here in the Philippines, I had to order Goldens and Roses online from where it retailed for 570 PHP.  It took me a while to actually decide on purchasing these products because I wanted to research more on it since the reviews are divided into extremes- satisfied and unsatisfied. There is no in between! I also wasn't able to get my hands on the Nudes version because it wasn't available on the store. Although, I've read that the Nudes one is probably the least favored out of the bunch. 

To be honest, I was really looking forward to this review, hoping that I could finally get some good quality eyeshadows without spending so much (a thrift tale indeed). Also, this product claims to be a dupe of the Naked Palettes. 

Alright so let's begin! I didn't put any primer or base on my arms for the swatches.
