Best Palette For 2019? Kathleen Lights X Colourpop 'So Jaded' Palette review

"So Jaded" is probably the biggest, and first 30-shade eye shadow Colourpop Cosmetics has ever released, and it's a collab with one of my favorite Beauty vloggers ever—Kathleen Lights!

If I could have just one makeup product on my face for an entire day, heck, even an entire week, it would probably be an eyebrow product—NARS Brow Defining Cream to be exact. đŸ˜œ

I've always loved Colourpop Cosmetics ever since they launched in 2014. What's not to love? Quality cosmetics and skincare without breaking the bank, plus they're cruelty-free! 

My holy grail makeup brush: Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush

My holy grail makeup brush: Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush review

I love quality-but-affordable makeup brushes. And as much as I want to bring all the brushes I would need with me, I can't because that would probably be about half of the makeup brushes I owned. Which is why I really looked for a versatile and retractable brush for a lady who's always on the go like me. Fortunately, I found the right one at the right price!

Some girls dream of buying their first Chanel bag someday... I don't. I mean, it'd be nice to have one, but I won't definitely be spending that much money just for a bag. And since I really like mirrors—I have it everywhere: several at home, one in my purse, and about three at my office desk, I decided to buy another one, and from Chanel.

Etude House CC Cream in Silky review + swatches

Etude House CC Cream in Silky review + swatches | The Best Korean CC cream for me!

I used to be a BB cream-kind of girl because it works on me so I religiously stuck to it. Some of my favorites were THEFACESHOP's Face It Power Perfection BB Cream in 02 Natural BeigeEtude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Blooming Fit in Natural Beige, and Belo Intensive Whitening BB Cream SPF50. I was hesitant to try it at first, but thank goodness I did, because now, Etude House CC Cream in Silky is definitely one of my HGs!

BeautyMNL Haul - October 2018

BeautyMNL Haul - October 2018

The Christmas season is indeed in full bloom, thanks to all the sale events in stores and even online. Earlier this year, I've decided to adopt a Minimalist lifestyle. Therefore, I have limited all my purchases to only my needs; and my wardrobe is mostly blacks, grays, and navy blues, decluttered and more. When it comes to spending, I only buy something when I really need it. So as a recovering impulsive shopaholic, I always have to argue with myself if a certain purchase is worth it. However, last October 29, I gave in. Because BeautyMNL recently had 20% off everything! How can I refuse that?

I love makeup. But I also love (or sometimes obsess in) caring for my skin. If you know me personally, you'll know that when I'm stressed, I break out. A lot. Random rash on my face starts appearing and worse, big zits. So until now, I lie low on makeup—I only use a brow pencil and powder, CC cream, lip tint (not even blush on my cheeks) and occasionally apply concealer for when I am feeling a little extra. However, on some days, I still miss wearing makeup and feeling a little extra. And my favorite look lately is the flushed look, which I match with my new Colourpop Lippie Stix!

Intramuros Tour | New Bioré UV Products review + photo gallery


Last Saturday, I was given the opportunity to join a sight-seeing tour by Biore Philippines. On the day of the event, I just found out that it wasn’t just sight-seeing at all. What comes with it was a brief history of the old Manila and our National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal. The fun stuff did not just end there, as I was also one of the first people who got to try the brand’s latest summer-ready products! Talk about being productive and educational, yeah?

2016 was a year of makeup hauls for me. There's so much makeup that I finally said to myself, I have to start posting it to my blog before they add up even more and lose the opportunity and time to do so. This 2017, I swear, is the year for more beauty and makeup reviews, so please bear with me! First off, is sharing my lipstick collection. I previously posted a couple of reviews and swatches of some from my collection and you may check it all in this link. Anyway, since the Beauty and the Beast live-action reboot premiere is just right around the corner and there's still no confirmed collaboration with Canadian makeup brand MAC Cosmetics, here is a piece from MAC Cosmetics x Disney's Cinderella collection instead.

Colourette Cosmetics' Starter Pak by Michelle Dy in "Boss Babe" review + swatches

Colourette Cosmetics' Starter Pak by Michelle Dy in "Boss Babe"

Last September, up and coming Filipino-owned Cosmetics Brand Colourette Cosmetics launched a lipstick bundle they collaborated with Filipino-Chinese Beauty Blogger and Youtube Vlogger, Michelle Dy! They're quite new in the beauty industry (they recently celebrated their first anniversary!) but they started making a buzz when they got Filipina-Australian Model Lily Maymac as their model and endorser almost a year ago. With a variety of killer lipstick shades, a great matte finish and knowing how to market their products to the Filipinas, Colourette Cosmetics sure know what they are doing!

Palmer's Olive Oil Formula Replenishing Conditioner review

Palmer's Olive Oil Formula - Replenishing Conditioner

Brand: Palmer's
Product: Olive Oil Formula - Replenishing Conditioner
Availability: Sold in a few online shops in the PH 
Price: Free (sample)

Ever since I entered college, I became obsessed with my hair. I've tried straightening treatments, having full bangs, coloring my hair (full head, ombre, and balayage highlights!), digital perm (thrice!) and then the numerous Brazilian Blowouts that I've had the last couple of years. That is why it is very important for me to take good care of my hair all the time.

Made by David Organics Dry Shampoo (from BeautyMNL) - Orange and Vanilla review

Made by David Organics Dry Shampoo in Orange & Vanilla

Brand: Made by David Organics
Product: Dry Shampoo
Variant: Orange & Vanilla
Availability: Sold in BeautyMNL
Price: Php 299

As mentioned in my previous post, I got this new dry shampoo from BeautyMNL for only P299. Usually, dry shampoos cost more than P299, so when I came across this product, I bought it ASAP. I also got it ASAP, like less than 24 hours plus freebies!

The BeautyMNL experience - 1st and 2nd order review

My first BeautyMNL package!

After 4 months of being MIA--I'm baaaack! I've just been busy being an adult the past few months and boy it's hard. I have been juggling my 9-7:30 PM work, my Mom's and my business plus my personal life. I'm only 24 years old but gaaahhh. Being. An. Adult. Is. Hard. Anyway, here I am blogging (while watching Ricki and The Flash, 2016), to share my very first shopping experience at BeautyMNL.

LA Girl PRO.conceal HD High Definition Concealer review + before/after

L.A. Girl PRO.conceal HD High Definition Concealer review

Brand: L.A. Girl
Product: PRO.conceal HD High Definition Concealer
Finish: Satin
Availability: Sold leading malls and in online shops
Price: Php 319

I mentioned in my previous post about the boyfriend and I's day out. Part of our date last weekend was shopping, and I was so happy because I finally got to buy this amazing concealer that I've been reading good reviews about. I thought it wasn't available in the leading shopping malls, but it was! However, like any other person trying out something new, I was quite hesitant if this will work out for me. Apart from having lots of concealer in my quest to find what will work for me, I'm afraid that this will cause my skin to break out or it will simply don't work.
