    Review: Ellana x Project Vanity Life-proof Eyebrow Pencil

    Kamusta naman ang kilay naten? (How are your brows?). It’s been almost 3 months since lockdown and I’ve been DIY-ing my way through everything. From cutting my hair to shaping my brows. And I’m so glad I was able to score these Life-proof Eyebrow Pencils from Ellana, in collaboration with Project Vanity.    They already worked together previously on their Life-proof Eyebrow Gels that came in pot form. It got dry too fast and it was a hassle (for me) to bring a separate brush. While I loved the color & longevity, I wasn’t too fond of the formula and packaging. I always wish it came in a pencil.   …

    REVIEW: ColourPop Brown Sugar Palette (Photos, Swatches)

    I’m guilty of being one of the people who hoards makeup just because it’s cute, but in reality don’t get to use it at all. Feel me? Season after season we get a new makeup collection release and our we can’t control ourselves. That’s why it feels amazing to find a product that you reach out for, over and over. It’s what Colorpop’s Brown Sugar Neutral Brown Eyeshadow Palette (15usd) is for me.  Worth it?

    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…

    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.…

    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. You can read my full review by clicking the…

    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…

    Revlon ColorStay Life-Proof Foundation Stick Review (180 Sand)

    This might be love. Legit. I’m a sucker for stick foundations, but I haven’t found “the” one.  It’s either they lack coverage, dull finish, no shade match, or bad longevity. Not until today that is with Revlon ColorStay Life-Proof Foundation Stick. It seems to have all the traits I’m looking for. Continue reading for my full review, photos, and swatches. Revlon ColorStay Life-Proof Foundation Stick Weartest Product Description Covers imperfections and leaves a traceless, second-skin look while providing protection with SPF. Lightweight cream to powder texture glides and blends on smoothly for 24 hours of sweat-proof, transfer and smudge-resistant wear. Twist-up stick component for convenient, on-the-go application.

    3CE Multi Pot Review and Swatch (Hollyhock)

    “Isn’t that a tad too pricey?”. That was my first reaction when my friend/lawyer Donna of My Lucid Intervals showed me here 3CE Multi Pot collection. She’s been raving about them and got swayed by her stellar review on the product that I bought a couple of shades from them too. Hollyhock and Primula. Today I’m going to review 3CE Multi Pot in Primula. It definitely deserves all the positive feedback it’s been getting in the k-beauty scene. It’s one of the best multi-purpose cream blushes/lipsticks around! Continue reading for my detailed review + swatches. I bought mine in a reputable Shopee seller but you can also purchase at Sephora…
