Tony Moly x Pokemon Pikachu Mini Cover Cushion (02 Warm Beige): Review

Hi everyone! I'm back after a very long time. I didn't think I would continue posting but a recent purchase made me want to blog again. It's none other than the Tony Mole Pikachu Mini Cover Cushion! :)

I was lucky to have been able to grab a hold of this product in less than 2 weeks after ordering it. I got mine from Style Korean (not sponsored).

Althea Korea Haul

One thing that I miss the most about being in the Philippines is being able to shop at Althea Korea. A few months before I left for UK, the online shopping website opened its doors to the Philippines and just a little over a month ago, they had their one year anniversary celebration. I was so glad to be a part of their birthday celebration.

iWhite BB.Holic Everyday BB Cream: Review

iWhite is getting a lot of hype these days, especially after they revamped their packaging and beauty bloggers/vloggers started raving about their products. This was so apparent with their Aqua Moisturizer, which is a big hit to most people. I've also tried that product before but I will save my review for that in a later post. Today, we are going to be talking about their newly released bb cream.

The BB Cream is called BB.Holic. It has been in the market for quite some time now but I think it is not yet available nationwide as I still haven't seen this particular product in local drugstores and supermarkets near my place. I had to go grab one when I dropped by SM Makati, just to be able to try this one. This explains why I wasn't able to review this product early on.

Colourette Creamy Matte Colourstick: Review + Swatches

I found out about Colourette through facebook. What caught my eye is Lilymaymac's photo. If you didn't know, Lilymaymac is instagram famous. Her beauty really captured my attention. Because of that, I browsed through the page to see what products they offer.

I saw a lot of photos about Colourette Creamy Matte Coloursticks and saw all the gorgeous shades they offer. This is what made me research as to where I can find a physical store where I can test the product out.

I saw that they had a dealer with physical store in Festival Mall Alabang so I made sure to look for the store when I went there. I got the one in the shade Sahara, a very nice nude that reminds me of the ever-so-popular Kylie Jenner trend. This is also one of Lilymaymac's go-to shades.

Etude House AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot: Review

Remember my post about the Clear Away Spot from THEFACESHOP? I used to rave about that product back in 2014 and I talked about it like I wouldn't be able to live without it. It was my holy grail spot treatment. Don't get me wrong. It still is, at this point, although if it goes out of stock, I have an alternative that I love just as much as that one.

Belo Perfecting Shield Tinted Sunscreen: Review

Recently, I have been neglecting my blog over youtube because I have been more into watching than reading. Lately, I have been obsessed with watching and doing first impressions review. While watching PinayBeautyandStyle Lover's channel, I chanced upon her first impressions review of the Belo BB Cream (or was it the Tinted Sunscreen?).

She mentioned that Sample Room had available samples of the product when she last checked. It served as a good reminder for me to check what's new in Sample Room. After all, it has been a while since my last visit to the website. Upon checking, I found out that there were a little over a hundred samples of the new tinted sunscreen from Belo. I immediately checked the amount of points I had and fortunately, I had enough. Hence, I took the chance and got one.

Miss Age Snail Anti-Wrinkle Serum: Review

I won't lie. This product has been with me for quite some time. I got it from Memebox back in December 2014. I kept it for a while and started using the product last year and I completely forgot to do a review on it. I am not using it anymore but I still think this one deserves to be featured on this blog. This $53 worth serum definitely did some good to my skin, not as a facial serum though. How? Read on to find out. ;)

THEFACESHOP Lovely me:ex You & Face Blusher (01 Pink Glow): Review

Strobing is in, definitely. However, not everyone is into loud highlighting. If you want a highlighted look without looking overdone, I've got the perfect product for you. What's great about it is it's super affordable!

Pretty Secret Black Detox Mask (Charcoal, Honey): Review

It has been a while since I sat down and wrote a blog post. Lately, I have been too focused on my youtube channel that I have ended up neglecting my blog. Today, I decided to give my blog some attention and create a blog post regarding a product that I highly recommend.

While looking at new items in Watsons, I chanced upon this black detox mask sheet. It wasn't available in the Watsons in my area so I was really surprised to see this on the rack. (I got this in Watsons Salcedo Street, Makati City.) I have been looking for black detox mask sheets ever since it was featured by some of my favorite Korean youtubers.

And yes, you guessed it right. Everything's purple!  In today's post, I will be featuring the newest EB Advance Supreme Lipsticks in different shades (and finishes) of purple.

Marionnaud Natural Cellulose Cleansing Sponges: Review

I've got to be honest. Rather than spending my money buying Clairsonic or other cleansers of the sort, I'd rather buy quality skin care items and use a cheaper alternative that does the job. But really, I don't have the funds for it so I tried this out on a whim. Fortunately, this trial turned into a great discovery, which is why I'm sharing it with you.

Nature Republic Skin Smoothing Lemon Peeling Gel: Review

About 4-5 years ago, I sat down with my dermatologist and she told me that peeling could help declog pores thereby reducing the amount of zits I had on my face. She also told me that it would be helpful in lightening acne scars brought about by these breakouts. While browsing inside the Nature Republic boutique in Festival Mall, my eye caught this Skin Smoothing Lemon Peeling Gel. I tried it on the back of my hand and I couldn't help but purchase.

Fresh and moisturizing peeling gel formulated with Vitamin C of rich lemon gently removes dead skin cells and impurities

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence with BB: Review

Last December, I got a surprise package from the good people of Vibelle Corporation. I wasn't expecting anything from anyone so imagine my surprise when I saw a parcel addressed to me arrive. When I finally opened the package, I was extremely happy to see this goodness.

iWhite Korea 2 Minute Whitening Miracle: Review

I noticed that a lot of beauty bloggers and youtubers have been going on about this iWhite 2 Minute Whitening Miracle and although I wanted to jump in on the bandwagon sooner, I couldn't find this particular product in the nearby supermarket and Watsons in my area. Last month, I dropped by Megamall to get my prizes from a video contest I joined and I chanced upon this product in the beauty section of SM Department Store.

Fashion 21 All Day (Russet) Matte Lipstick: Review

I have another lipstick review for you. Are you excited? Well, I am! Today's lipstick review is going to be on the Fashion 21 All Day Matte Lipstick and I got it in the shade of All Day Russet. I initially saw this on purpleheiress youtube channel and I originally wanted to purchase the All Day Bronze shade. However, it was sold out so I couldn't grab a hold of it.

This lipstick is very affordable at only PHP 175.00 and it is available in SM Department stores. I got mine in SM Sta. Rosa and out of all the shades available, I found All Day Russet to be the best.
