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 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 »
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 »
It’s summer here in the Philippines, and I just got back from my vacation from the Island of Bohol. It’s scorching hot there with a temperature of 32°C! Good thing I packed my beach/ summer essentials that made me survive the summer sun!
Sunplay Ultra Shield Lotion SPF130 PA++++ (S$17.20)
Because I knew I’ll spend the whole day on the beach basking in the sun, I chose a heavy-duty sunscreen with incredibly high SPF. This sunscreen comes in a small bottle, a perfect fit in my beach bag. What I love about this sunscreen is its formula: it’s lightweight and non-greasy! It’s a face and body sunscreen although I won’t recommend it for the face because it leaves uneven white casts.Read More »
When I was studying for the specialty board exam, I watched a lot of Korean makeup tutorials during my break time. Pony and Lamuqe are my faves (if you may ask) and they’ve been using a lot of brown eyeliners to achieve that fresh light look. So I asked my sister to buy me a drugstore brown liquid eyeliner–not pencil, not gel, but liquid. Surprisingly, she had a hard time looking for a brown liquid eyeliner but managed to bring me a Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner in Mahogany Flame.
The Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner is a metallic bronze/brown liner that comes in a very fine brush tip that would be perfect for creating cat-eyes. It’s quick drying and creates a solid finish. A single swipe is enough to do the trick. According to Revlon, it’s a ‘long lasting color stay formula won’t smudge, smear or fade for all day wear’, however it does smugde, especially the glitter/metallic part.
