    Prada 3 Piece Set Fragrance Collection Review

    I first got a whiff of Prada Candy thanks to a freebie sample from a makeup seller on-line. It was perfect timing because I was looking for a new signature perfume? Why? Because fragrances connect me to memories, and in moving on I’d like to forget (naks). Fragrances & Memories When we went to Singapore last year, I wanted to purchase a souvenir. Not just any random souvenir, but something to save that memory and beyond. A perfume. Scents are CHEAP in airports with lots of deals and gifts sets. So when I spotted the Prada Candy Gift Set for 95sgd (Set of 3 Scents), I never let go. Prada…

    Lip and Cheek Tints are makeup that’s sheer but saturated with color. Because the formula is buildable, it gives everyone a universally flattering, just blushed look. As long as you get the right color for your skin tone.  It’s a must-have in every makeup lover’s kit, especially if you’re the type who just likes to grab & go, or just don’t have the time to do a full-face.

    Commute Directions in Metro Manila using Sakay.PH App

    Grab is too expensive, Angkas is on the rocks. Today, I’ll be sharing with you the best commute directions in Metro Manila using Sakay.PH App. When I used to be a student, there was no smart phones yet. No google playstore, no apple app store.

The train stations I drop off to, the sidecars I rode. Ah.. good times! We’ve gotten too dependent on-call rides that have we forgetten the art of commuting?…

    Brow Soaps for Fluffy Feathered Eyebrows! (Review + Tutorial)

    Okay, pardon the thumbnail. I was trying to grow my brows out when it was taken and haven’t waxed for ages. Why you ask? Because one of my goal is to have fluffy brows.

    Max Factor False Lash Epic FAIL (Review)

    Don’t worry, this will be quick. Judging by the title you’d probably know by know that Max Factor False Lash Epic, disappoints. Why continue reading? So you can see for yourself. I purchased a tube because it was on sale on BeautyMNL for 199PHP and I was on the look-out for a new mascara. This happens a lot because makeup like mascaras should be discarded within 3 months. Mascaras are one of the fastest I replace. My Holy Grail is from the Japanese brand Heroine Make (which reminds me I should write a review on that instead lol).
