♥ REVIEW: One Earth Organics Powerful Hydrating Lip Scrub

Hello there!

I love matte lipsticks. But apparently, my lips won't let me wear them. I have a very dry lips to the point that I can peel off the skin and will cause a wound on my lips. I really hate it when that happens. Unfortunately, it happens almost every time I wear lipsticks especially matte. I don't know what causes my dry lips. So what I do is I'm trying to prevent it by using a lip scrub which I discovered just lately. I was very curious about this lip scrub but it's a bit expensive so I searched for a DIY lip scrub. But I am too lazy to make one. I know I lack determination. Lol! And I was very thankful when I was given a lip scrub that I have been eye-ing. I am talking about One Earth Organics Powerful Hydrating Lip Scrub. And I will be sharing my experiences and opinions about this product after the jump. :)

Price: P456

Description: This Lip Scrub enhances circulation while promoting glossy and healthy looking lips. It absorbs quickly and completely into the lips to rehydrate without clogging pores.

Jojoba is rich in Vitamin E and a natural anti-oxidant as well, penetrates the lips to plump and moisturize.

♥ REVIEW: MAC Retro Matte Lipstick

Hello there!

Aaaah!!! I really can't contain my happiness and excitement right now. Even though I owned this lipstick weeks ago, I still get excited whenever I hold it in my hands and wear it on my lips. Hahaha! But seriously, I am really really happy to finally own a MAC lipstick. This is my very first high end makeup that is why I get all excited to share it to you. Lol!

And then tadaaaa, I got this MAC Retro Matte in the shade Dangerous. I actually like to get the shade Viva Glam 1 but unfortunately there was someone who got it first. :( But, I'm still happy with what I got. Hehe! :)

♥ REVIEW: Bangkok Face Gem Fruit Pudding Cream and Lotus Sparkling Mask

Hello there!

Bangkok products are popular in the market nowadays and they claim to be more effective than other products. And because I am a person who wants to get rid all of my insecurities, I finally decided to jump into the bandwagon and try Bangkok products. There are a lot of Bangkok products which are affordable yet effective, based on the feed backs that I have read. But of course, it is not applicable to everyone since our skin reacts differently. So, in order for me to know if it really is effective, I took the risk to try Bangkok products. The product that I will be reviewing today is a face cream and a face mask. This is the Bangkok Face Gem Fruit Pudding Cream and Lotus Sparkling Mask. I believe these two should be used together to achieve better results. Keep on reading to know my experiences and opinions about these products. :)

♥ REVIEW: New White Underarm Cream

Hello there!

Have you ever dreamed of having flawlessly white, odorless and smooth underarms? Well, I did. I admit that I don't have perfect underarms. I don't need to describe them to you but let's just say that I am not proud of them. I always use deodorant before but it didn't give me enough satisfaction. So I stopped using it because I also realized that deodorants have a lot of chemicals. I was using an underarm powder until I decided to try the popular products nowadays which are from Bangkok, Thailand. I tried this thing called New White Underarm Cream because the claimed results are so promising. I was hesitant at first because I have sensitive skin and I am afraid that I might get allergic reactions from the product. So, let us start the review and see if it is worth the try. :)

Price: P100

♥ REVIEW: Beauty Buffet CO Q10 & Yogurt Facial Mask

Hello there!

I am not really into facial masks. But sometimes, I feel like buying masks and maintaining it because they say that facial masks can give you that Korean-like skin. So, I thought, "Really??". But then, whenever I am ready to buy I always hesitate and then change my mind later on. I don't why. Maybe I find it expensive to use it once a day and then I think twice if it is effective. So, whenever I pass by the area where facial masks are displayed, I get only one or two from each of the variant just to try the effect of the product on my skin. And then that's it. So, for today, I got myself the Beauty Buffet CO Q10 & Yogurt Facial Mask variant. And let us see if it does improve my skin even if in just one usage. :)

♥ REVIEW: Careline Oil Control Blush-on

Hello there!

I am not really fond of blushes so one blush is enough for me. For my cheeks, I want them to look rosy so the shade that I am looking for in a blush is a rosy peach shade that gives me a subtle color just not to look flat. Since I am not really into blushes, I just go for a very affordable blush. I tried the brand Careline because they have a lot of blush shades to choose from plus their blushes have oil control. And yes, I have found the perfect blush for me from that brand. Right now, I am currently loving this Careline Oil Control Blush-on in the shade Rosy Cheek. The shade name is exactly the shade that I want. :)

♥ REVIEW: Fashion 21 Aqualicious Lipstick

Hello there!

I am obsessed with lipsticks and I want to buy all the shades available in the market. But sad to say, not all of them will suit me. So, I need to buy lipsticks that suits my skin tone. Generally, I like natural shades and very dark red shades of lipsticks. I go for a natural shade when I want to look natural and for everyday use. I am a big fan of Miss Say (if you know her), and I saw, in one of her videos, that she was wearing this very beautiful shade and I just have to ask her what brand and shade it was because I love it. It was from Fashion 21 Aqualicious Lipstick line in the shade Little Mermaid. So, I went to Watsons and I was told that it was always out of stock. So, I thought this shade is indeed a very beautiful shade because it was the only shade that's always out of stock. Until, I finally bought one for myself and so here is my review on this product. :)

♥ REVIEW: San San Eyeliner Pen

Hello there!

Are you an eyeliner girl? And by eyeliner girl I mean, do you always put on eyeliner? I am not really an eyeliner girl, but I like how it changes my look whenever I put on eyeliner. So, maybe that makes me an eyeliner girl also? Lol! I am not making sense already. Anyway, the first eyeliner that I used and what my mom uses is an eyeliner pencil and when I started practicing doing my own makeup, I realized that it is hassle for me to use a pencil type because it smudges, it needs sharpener, and it always break. And then, there came an eyeliner that is in liquid form. I tried it also but my hands are too shaky so I end up always retouching my eyeliner because my two eyes don't match. And then, there came another type of eyeliner which is a pen type. I tried and it is perfect for my shaky hands and it is very convenient to use. I now have this San San Eyeliner Pen and this is the second eyeliner pen that I have tried.The first one is the Nyx Eyeliner Pen and I didn't like it. So, this time I am going to share my thoughts and opinions about the San San Eyeliner Pen. :)

♥ REVIEW: Shawill Hide The Blemish Concealer

Hello there!

When I do my full makeup for an occasion or whatnot, I really have to apply a concealer for my blemishes and especially for my dark under eye circles.

So I did a research for reviews on the many different concealers available in the market. I have tried a few and still haven't found the perfect concealer for me. But for the mean time, the concealer that I have been using is this Shawill Hide The Blemish Concealer. I discovered this product from Miss Say's Youtube channel and she said that it does a pretty good job so I decided to try it and hence this review. :)

♥ REVIEW: Fashion 21 Red Romance Lipstick

Hello there!

If you know me very well, my favorite color is pink. But when it comes to lipsticks, I want it to be really really dark red. Maybe because I want to look maldita. Hahaha! I have been searching for the perfect red lipstick that suits me and my personality and I did find one but unfortunately it is from Mac Cosmetics and we all know that Mac is a really expensive brand. I can't afford it so I tried lipsticks that can be found locally and sad to say they are not as red as I want them to be. All the red lipsticks that I have tried are bright which I don't like. Then, I came across the Red Romance line which is from Fashion 21 and the darkest red that I have found in that line is the shade Heartthrob. So, I am going to share with you my experience on using this product. :)

♥ REVIEW: Snoe Magic Beso Balm

Hello there!

Are you fond of using lip balms? I have so many lip balms but I seldom use them because they don't give color to my pale lips, they just give shine to get rid of the dryness on my lips. Although, there are lip balms nowadays that give not only shine but also give color to the lips. The reason why I need a lip balm is because I have dry and chapped lips and I believe lip balms are the solution for that problem. But I have another lip problem, I have pale lips and for me, lip balms don't give me enough color for my lips. Since then, I opted to use lipsticks. Not until I discovered Snoe's Magic Beso Balm. This lip balm is the answer to all of my lip problems.I am so happy that Snoe came up with this product. :)

♥ EVENT: Snoe Beauty Davao Launching

Hello there!

Last Sunday, June 15, was Father's Day and also the launching of Snoe's 39th branch here in Davao City. If you haven't heard of Snoe, it is a Filipino brand founded by a Filipina and all of their products are Philippine-made and are perfect for Pinoy/Pinay skin. Snoe is one of my favorite brands because their products are amazingly effective and also attractive because of their cute labels and creative names. If you have been a reader of my blog, you will know that i have suffered from acne and one of the products that helped me from acne is Snoe's Awesome Poresome Beauty Bar. Unfortunately, I have discontinued using that soap because I have to order it online and it will become expensive because of the shipping. So now, I can go back to using that soap and try Snoe's other products because I can now have easy access to them. As I was saying, it was their launching last Sunday and I was one of the invited bloggers to witness the event and I was very honored because it is Snoe and I love Snoe! Lol!

♥ REVIEW: iWhite Korea Whitening Pack

Hello there!

Are you fond of putting masks on your face? For me, I don't use masks before but not until I had a severe acne after I had my chicken pox. When I was recovering from my acne, I learned to use masks. I prefer using peel off masks than masks with essence because I feel that peel off masks works more than those masks with essence. I don't know, I just feel that way maybe because I can really feel that it peels off dead skin cells and exfoliates my skin. So now, I am going to review the only peel off mask that I know (lol!) from the brand iWhite Korea which is my favorite brand by the way, the iWhite Korea Whitening Pack. I am also using the Aqua Moisturizing Cream and the Nose pack together with this Whitening Pack. And I must say that it helped me with my acne recovering stage and now I am using it for maintenance and I'm hoping that it will reduce my red acne scars in the long run.

♥ FOTD: Smokey Eyes with a hint of Pink

Hello there!

I was in the mood to play with my makeup because I had nothing to do. I don't really wear makeup on a daily basis. I just do my makeup when there are occasions or just simply playing with it if I'm in the mood. But honestly, I want to be a professional makeup artist and make it as my part time job for extra income. Oh well, maybe I will just stick to playing my makeup when I'm alone at home. Now, here is my makeup look for today. I call it Smokey Eyes with a hint of Pink. This time, I will be showing you pictures on the step by step process of my eye makeup. I am not a makeup guru but I hope you'll like it. :)

♥ TRAVEL: Surigao

Hello there!

Last week was one of my best days in my life because I, once again, left Davao City for a vacation. I really love traveling so much but I don't have money for that. That is why I am so happy that my boyfriend's forever generous mother invited me to join them in their trip to Surigao. I was really excited because I get to see the tourist spots in that place. And here are the photos that I have taken during our trip. Enjoy! :)

I took this photo when we were on our way to Surigao. I just love the color, it is so green. :)

Hello there! Today's blog post will be about my experience on a buffet place called Vikings. Have you heard about that place? It is very popular in Manila because of their wide range of food. You can choose from different cuisines of different countries. I never heard about it until they opened a branch here in Davao City and it is the biggest buffet place in the city. Because of its popularity and their wide range of food, of course you expect it to be expensive. And yes, it is expensive for a buffet. I think only class A people can afford that buffet and I am not in that cluster. I am just so lucky that I was able to eat there because of my boyfriend's forever generous mother. Now I am going to share with you my experience through photos and if you haven't been there, I hope this will give you an idea of what the place looks like. Enjoy! :)

♥ REVIEW: Makeup Academy Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer

Hello there! Well, this is my very first blog post this year because I was in hiatus due to important stuffs. But I am back and hopefully I will not be MIA again. So today, I am going to review the well known lip product from the brand MUA, the Makeup Academy Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer. I assume you already heard a lot of raves about this product that is why I really want to get a hold of the product and try it myself. But if you are not familiar with the product, it has been said that it is the perfect dupe for the very famous Limecrime Velvetines which is expensive by the way. Now, onto the review. :)

Price: P380/each
Bought at: Chic Cosmetics

Description: Get the ultimate velvet-matte pout with this richly pigmented, silky smooth lip lacquer. The quick-dry formula glides on effortlessly to leave a gorgeous matte finish, that is smudge-proof and long-lasting.
