When my Uncle (who is based in Korea) told me that he's flying to Manila, I immediately fired up Google and searched for must-have Korean makeups--thus, the hoarding that costed me more than  Php 5,000--which is quite a bargain, because Korean makeups are waaaay cheaper when you buy it there, plus you even get tons of freebies!

With regard to my previous blog post about my full hair and makeover at Vivere Salon - Megamall branch, I just like to share the product that was used on my hair, since I really loved the product on my hair. The boyfriend also loves using this product on his hair because it holds (and smells) better than most of his hair products like wax and clay. ;)

December was the month for all the annual reunions, Christmas and Year-End events. In my almost two years in my current company, it was my first time to experience the annual Year-End event, because as part of their drive to help the victims of Yolanda, the company decided cancel the event and instead, donate the event fund to them. It is the company's biggest, and most-awaited event every year, that's why I took it a little bit seriously and had my hair and make up done. ;)

Human Heart Nature Natural Shampoo and Conditioner in Soothing Aloe review

Recently, I posted about my second Ombre + Keratin treatment. Of course, after spending all that $$$, you should take care of your hair--especially after the Keratin treatment, if you want it to last.

Where: Society Salon (Previously Azta Urban Salon - Pioneer)

I have been obsessed with making my hair look better for the past 5 years and so. I have had straightening treatments for what seems to be three consecutive years or more, then I got a digital perm (at a Korean salon with a Japanese hairdresser/specialist in that treatment) twice in a span of two and a half years. Last year, it was my first time to have my hair colored and try this new innovation in hair called the Brazilian Blowout. has been almost a year and half since my last hair treatment at the same salon where I had my first.

Brand: MAC Cosmetics
Product: Viva Glam III lipstick
Finish: Matte
Price: Php 1,000

Ever since Kylie Jenner started flaunting her "fuller lips" and wearing vampy lipsticks, I started too, joining the bandwagon. She's into wearing dark lipsticks--plum, black, oxblood, dark nudes, etc. Kylie soon began my peg when it comes to choosing my next color of lipstick. And this lip color is definitely my first Kylie Jenner-lip-color peg.

NYX Cosmetics Round Lipstick in Fig review + swatches

Brand: NYX Cosmetics
Product: Round lipstick in Fig
Finish: Satin
Price: Php 185

I am a certified lipstick addict, and this obsession of mine started when I first got my MAC Lipstick in 2012. From that moment on, I fell in love with the beauty of lipsticks and their tube that I never stopped buying one for myself. My mom already knows this--of course, she knows this, as I probably inherited it from her! Because she too, loves lipsticks. Especially pink ones. Here is my latest pink lipstick that my Mom bought for me: NYX's Round Lipstick in Fig.

MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium review

I've been collecting MAC Lipsticks for quite some time now, so I finally decided to try a different product from them. Thankfully though, my face powder back then was running out! So the boyfriend insisted that he should buy me a MAC face powder. How sweet of him. Tee hee!

Etude House Play 101 Pencil #1 review + swatches


Brand: Etude House
Product: Play 101 Pencil #1
Finish: Matte
Price: Php 348.00 (but I bought this in Korea)

Etude House released a multi-purpose makeup pencil available in various colors, but I only got #1. Actually, I think my Uncle or a saleslady from Etude House Korea got it wrong, because I was actually aiming for Play Color Eyes #1 palette. But since it's here, might as well use it. I previously posted about my Korean makeup haul, click here to see them.

Price: Php 329.25/set 
(continue reading to see the individual prices)

I was blessed enough to be given free Belo Essentials AcnePro and Skin Whitening Underarm kits earlier this month. I was a little too excited to try the AcnePro kit since I've been reading pretty good reviews--plus it's Belo Essentials' latest product to offer after the Skin Whitening Underarm Anti-Perspirant Deodorant. Continue reading for my review.

Korean make up haul from Etude House and The Face Shop in Korea


A few days ago, my Uncle based in Korea went home with these goodies! But prior to his arrival here in the Philippines, I asked him if he could buy a few makeup and skin care products in his current hometown, since I was told that Korean make up products are cheaper than here in the Philippines, so hence, the hoard.
