Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence is my ultimate Holy Grail sunscreen. I do not leave the house/ condo without putting this on. So when I found out that Bioré released a limited edition last Spring in Japan I did not have any second thoughts, I immediately purchased it.
Packaging: It’s the same packaging with a pink floral makeover. The light pink tube with the Peony illustration is very very pretty!Read More »
Hello, guys, I’m back! My schedule is crazy, I’m mostly on duty during weekends and I have to recuperate during the weekdays, so basically I’m still adjusting to my new schedule. I do promise to keep up with my blog and follow a feasible blogging schedule.
This is actually an overdue post. I bought this lip and cheek tint last summer for my beach trip because I wanted to achieve a glowing orangey summer look. And since I love the brand The Face Shop I immediately purchased The Face Shop Watery Tint in 03 Orange Scene.Read More »
I’m not a fan of mascaras because I already accepted that my short, straight and stubborn lashes are hopeless. Even the cult fave Shu Uemura curlers can only provide a temporary fix for my lashes. Although I wasn’t blessed with long and full lashes, I rely on falsies when I needed the extra drama. But there are days that I don’t have much time to put on false eyelashes that’s the time I resort to mascara. My favourite mascara is Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara. As for drugstore mascara, I haven’t found the right one. I have tried some but it did not work for me. It only end up in my shelf only to be disposed after a few months when it have dried up.
There has been a hype over the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara last year and also early this year when Lash Paradise was finally available in the Philippine Market. I got curious so I picked up one: the Waterproof Blackest Black during a trip to the department store.
Product Description: Take your lashes to paradise! Our 1st mascara for volume & length. Soft wavy bristle brush holds maximum formula for a dramatic volumizing charge. 200+ bristles catch every lash for a full fringe effect. Smooth glide formula provides silky volume in one coat. Lashes are feathery soft to the touch. Women agreed: 91% saw intense & volumized lashes and 87% saw more beautiful lashes. +98% lengthening effect.
The worse thing than the unbearable summer heat is the sticky feeling of my makeup melting and sliding down my face. Even though most of the makeup products I’m using are relatively long-lasting, sometimes there are just limits to their longevity. That’s why I felt the need to resort to setting spray. If there’s a product that could make my makeup last the entire day without any touchups, I’ll definitely try it. When it comes to setting sprays it, (based on reviews), it seems like Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray is the gold standard. Let’s see what’s the fuss is about…
Product Description: Is makeup meltdown ruining your midnight mojo? Mist on this weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power. Developed in an exclusive partnership with SKINDINÄVIA, this groundbreaking, clinically tested formula is suitable for all skin types and features patented Temperature Control Technology. It actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush, and concealer in place—even in hot and humid or cold and windy conditions. The result? Smoother-looking skin and vibrant makeup that lasts all day (or night) without melting, cracking, fading, or settling into fine lines.
Directions: After applying makeup, shake the bottle well, hold 8″-10″ and mist face 2-4 times in an “X” and ”T” formation.Read More »
I love K-Beauty but I do not have the time for their 10 step skincare routine. But I do love their sheet masks; they’re cheap, effective and fun to use. When I was reviewing for my diplomate board exam, my idea of relaxation is a 15-minute sheet mask study-break while watching PONY syndrome make-up tutorials on YouTube. I did it every day for almost a month and boy my skin looked really great during the day of my exam. There are so many sheet masks in the market but these are my top picks:
#5 TONYMOLY I’m Real Makgeolli Mask Sheet Skin Purifying What it does: Makgeolli mask makes uneven skin tone look radiant and glowing. What I love about this: I love the I’m Real sheet masks collection from TonyMoly, especially their cute packaging. Makgeolli a.k.a. Korean rice wine contains amino acids and vitamins that supposedly help brighten the skin.Read More »
I was looking for a mini palette as a substitute for my overused Urban Decay Naked Basic. TBH I do reach more for my mini palettes than the full sized palettes, which most of the time stay on my shelf. I was searching for an inexpensive brand, then I realised I haven’t tried any of ColourPop’s palettes. The Take Me Home Palette looks good, and since Tati approves of this eyeshadow in her video, I might as well give it shot.
Product Description: Take Me Home is the perfect eyeshadow palette for travel or touchups. It features six super-pigmented pressed powder shadows in versatile everyday shades with matte and metallic finishes. The formula applies evenly and feels ultra-velvety and silky. These long-wearing shadows contain a unique combination of softer powders which adheres easily to the eyes, gives a soft-focus effect, and blends smoothly and evenly.
Packaging: ColourPop eyeshadow palettes come in a cardboard packaging. But this has a plus, unlike other ColourPop palettes this packaging comes with a mirror.Read More »
K-Beauty is really popular here in the Philippines but unfortunately, we still don’t have Innisfree stores here. I’ve always wanted to try Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder because of the good reviews it received. Vlogger Itsmyrayeraye even tried to bake using this powder in one of her videos (although it failed the flash photography test). I have really, really oily skin and the summer season and the humidity in Manila make it actually worse. So my sister got me this powder from Innisfree Singapore for S$ 10. You can buy this online in the Philipines, there a LOT of K-Beauty sellers online.
Packaging: It comes in a small round mint-green packaging with a puff. The tiny size is really convenient, you can easily fit it on your makeup kit, purse or pocket. I apply the powder using a brush that’s why I don’t use puff often. Some reviews say they didn’t like the packaging since it tends to be messy but I never experienced any spills with the packaging.Read More »
