The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% Review

The Ordinary is currently one of the most popular, not to mention controversial, skincare brands out in the market. It’s an award-winning brand known for its simplicity as well as its affordable price. During my trip to Sydney, I found out that they have a Deciem store there so I purchased some of The Ordinary…

The Face Shop Waterproof Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ Review

My general goal for this summer is to be as minimalist as possible in terms of makeup. I want a more natural look for this season so I decided to ditch my mid to high coverage foundations in exchange of lighter ones to achieve a soft dewy look, and I think that cushion foundations might…

What’s in my Makeup Travel Bag: Sydney

Last month, I went on a short trip to Sydney for my cousin’s wedding in Hunter Valley. It was already Autumn in Sydney; the days were still hot and humid while the nights were cool and windy. Because it was just a short visit I tried to pack only the essential stuff. So here’s what’s…

Benton Snail Bee Ultimate Hydrogel Eye Patch Review

So here’s the tea.. me and my boyfriend broke up after I got back from my trip to Australia. I hate to admit it but I cried incessantly for days following the breakup. (So much for sharing my personal life haha). There’s no use in denying my sobbing episodes because my eyes got really, really…

July Roundup: BECCA, Mindhunter, Kygo & more

This blog was supposed to be devoted only to beauty, makeup and skincare but I can’t help but write about other stuff and share my lifestyle favourites. Call me nerd but I would also like to include some latest medical news/ studies from journals so all of us are updated. Hopefully, this Lifestyle Roundup will…

L’OrĂ©al Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Review

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…

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Review

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…

Korean Sheet Masks Haul

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…

ColourPop Take Me Home Eyeshadow Review

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…

Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder Review

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)….
