What’s in my Travel Makeup Bag: Cambodia


If you read my previous post you already know that I visited Cambodia last month. The last time I went to Cambodia was eight years ago, but we only visited Phnom Penh and skipped Siem Reap. Of course, I have to come back for Angkor Wat. Given that it was raining hard the whole month of July in the Philippines, I’m not sure what to expect with regards to Cambodia’s weather.

Because I was there for only less than three days I only packed a few things. Most of the products I packed with me are my daily essentials. Here are the products I brought:Read More »

NARS Orgasm Liquid Blush Review

NARS just released a three-piece Orgasm collection (Orgasm afterglow lip balm, Orgasm Illuminating loose powder and Orgasm limited edition blush) exclusively in the Sephora App. And in the meantime, while I am waiting for the new collection to be released in the Philippines, I’ll review my favourite Orgasm Liquid Blush.

Nars Contour Blush Review

I used to contour my face using my bronzer. However, I eventually learned the difference between bronzer and contour: Contours have ashy undertones to sculpt your face by making shadow effects, while Bronzers have reddish warm undertones to make this sun-kissed looked. I then ditched by bronzer and searched the web for the best contour around. I came across the top contour kits in the market:

    • Anastasia Beverly Hill Pro Series Contour Kit
    • Kat Von D Shade & Light Face Contour Palette
    • Nars Contour Blush
    • Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate
    • Too Faced Cocoa Chiseled to Perfection Palette

I got mine in the shade of Paloma, which is a Pink Beige/ Deep Rose color (the medium shade). In Asia, it comes in 3 shades: Olympia (light), Paloma (medium) and Gienah (dark). This kit is really easy to use, great for contour beginners. The product is very pigmented, and you if got too much product you can just blend it off.
