    REVIEW: Ellana OG BB Foundation (Original Glow)

    The weird feeling that my breakouts and pimple problems are turning a year old soon. While coping and trying to clear up my acne-laden skin, I had to cover them up. Especially when attending photo shoots, meetings, or events. Before Ellana OG BB Foundation came along, I was using all sorts of high-coverage foundations. Sure they can cover the zits alright, but were they good for my skin? Nope. I felt like wearing them during the day made me pimples worse. That’s when I was asked to try and review Ellana’s latest face product, of course I said yes! It was a wish come true for me. I was already…

    Sephora Favorites – Give Me More Lip – Is it worth getting?

    Sephora is always producing kits that are worth your splurge. Most of them contain at least 1-2 full products that already pay for themselves + the  mini sizes. I mean, who finishes full-sizes anyway? I’m also guilty of hoarding cosmetics and leaving them to expire because there’s just too many. That’s why samples and minis are perfect for beauty addicts like us. Today I’ll be sharing with you swatches of the new Sephora Favorites: Give Me More Lip that I received last Christmas (2019). Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip A collection of lip products in different formulas, shades, and finishes—including two full-size and six deluxe products. This kit includes moisturizing…

    Puritans Pride Zinc for Acne – REVIEW

    Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing you my 3-week journey with Puritans Pride Zinc for Acne. I mentioned in my previous vlog on “How to Have Clear Skin” that it’s mostly genetics. Throughout my youth, from elementary to puberty, I never experienced wild acne. Until today. I’m 32 by the way. I’ve tried the usual topical solutions for acne that I trust. AHA, BHA, Retinoids, even good ol’ Kati-Alis but nope. They still continue to grow into painful, pus-filled cystic acne. I also tried to stop using anything and just washed my face with water but nope. Acne is still present. Yes, I also consulted with a dermatoligist where I purchased her Acne-clearing set…

    Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer | REVIEW and SWATCHES

    ACNE. It’s so weird that at the age of 32, it suddenly went onslaught and wrecked havoc on my face. I have, kept a relatively clear skin since I can remember. Until mid-last year when these annoying pustule-filled pimples popped up. I’ve tried almost everything to remove them (will tell that separately), but until then. A good concealer is needed to cover. That’s why today we’ll be reviewing the Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer (yes it says it’s for the undereye, but it’s so good you can use it on any part of your face).    Description Super Stay® Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer is a lightweight, full coverage liquid concealer.…

    Wish I’ve Tried Solstice Age Defense Sunscreen Earlier!

    #realtalk Whenever I pass by Watsons and browse around their aisles, I always spot Solstice Age Defense Sunscreen but choose to ignore it. For starters the pastel yellow tube didn’t speak out to me. Enough to purchase it. My bad. It’s good. Pretty good actually. It was one fine forgetful moment when I visited my grandparents, and I LEFT MY SUNSCREENS. Admittedly I was feeling “why would I buy when I have a whole lotta products in my house” . Couldn’t live without UV protection. I leave and breathe in sunblock. I was considering to get Biore but their sunscreens have been acting up on me giving me weird bumps and…

    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…

    My Favorite Lip and Cheek Tints (Review + Swatch

    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. Lip and cheek tints are saviour from making us look colorless.   My Favorite Lip and Cheek Tints Quick Review: 3CE Multi-pot in Holly Hock – It’s first, because it’s my number one.

    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. Bushy brows makes you look younger. The mess of it all is beautiful. How do we achieve it? All we need is a: soap, water, and spoolie. How does a brow soap work? I recommend using a transparent soap than a white or colored one. Because the latter can give you a dandruff effect when dried. I’m also all for convenience so I bought a ready-made brow soap from Brow Naturelle (290php) that comes in clear or brown.…

    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). But they no longer officially sell here and the prices are marked…

    Blonde. Bleached. It’s an essential when we want to sport a bright hair color. But how do we keep our hair from getting brassy? I think I’ve changed my hair with every color from the rainbow.
