Gigi Hadid Jetsetter Palette Review

When I first found out that Gigi Hadid was going to launch her own makeup line with Maybelline New York, I was honestly a little bit skeptical. There have already been so many celebrity collabs with makeup brands lately that I wondered if anyone else can top Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line, among others. Here is my first-hand (honest) scoop on her Jetsetter Palette! Continue reading “Gigi Hadid Jetsetter Palette Review”

Beauty Wish List May 2017

I’m sure you’re all familiar with that list of beauty products jotted down on a pad or constantly embedded in your mind, which you always dream of having in your very own vanity. More than being a list to merely go back to, it’s a list that inspires us to work harder (so we can buy them all lol). Here is my beauty wish list for the month of May!

New York Winter Skincare Routine (Day-Night!)

Two months into New York winter and I’m proud to say my skin is still doing great! Winter has been on and off here. Some days are a lot warmer (like Spring), some days, the temperature is negative. It’s always best to prepare your skin for sudden changes in weather!

If there really is anything I can’t live without when we talk about beauty, it’s skincare (yes, more than makeup *gasp*). I love how skincare products can refresh you in the morning, and relax you before bed at night.

I change up the products I use quite often depending on the climate and on my mood (lol), but for the most part, the steps you see below are pretty much what I follow everyday. Read on to see my day and night skincare routine in New York! I’ve marked in PINK my holy grail/favorite products 😉 Continue reading “New York Winter Skincare Routine (Day-Night!)”

Makeup Haul: Jcat

Jcat cosmetics just recently launched in the Philippines, and I was able to get a few things from them in their bazaar last December. They come all the way from The US! Jcat is fairly priced, and they are more known for bolder and crazier makeup fronted by matte lipsticks that come in gorgeous browns, reds, to blues!

Moisture Touch Lipsticks Review (Cool-toned edition!)

Happy New Year! Hope you all had an amazing holiday break.

What better way to start the year than with another lipstick swatch post (lol I just love lipsticks)?

In the 3-day workshop we had in Seoul with The Face Shop, a professional image consultant helped us find our personal color. Mine happened to be cool-toned (not warm, to my dismay lol), so I brought home with me 6 cool-toned lipsticks to start wearing.

3 Days in Seoul with The Face Shop

Last December 14, I was luckily flown by The Face Shop Philippines to Seoul, for a 3-day workshop as they introduced their latest product ranges coming this 2017. It was perfect because I really wanted to visit Korea this Christmas but due to some circumstances I couldn’t do so. I haven’t been to Korea in almost 2 years so it almost seemed foreign to me again!

Slimming Services Review: Big Day Slim

This is my very first time to try a slimming service so I was quite excited, to be honest!

The Big Day Slim is a non-invasive slimming service company that will help you get ready for your Big Day – be it a wedding, a debut, or a trip to the beach – at the comfort of your own home. They claim to help you lose inches off your waist, thighs, abdomen, and arms.

I’ve tried both their Lipocavitation and Radiofrequency services on my arms and thighs, to see which is better for me. Read on below to see my review! 😉 Continue reading “Slimming Services Review: Big Day Slim”

Trying Something New

I’ve been pretty active on several social media sites for quite a while now – Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat – you name it. Some people don’t even want to go beyond 2 social media accounts, but for me, a 140-character tweet or a 15-second snap just isn’t enough sometimes (lol).

I’m starting this little blog to elaborate on the things I love – be it sharing my love for makeup, behind-the-scenes moments of a shoot, or a trip abroad with friends. I guess you can call it my digital diary (?) being shared to the world. I love reminiscing through things I loved or places I’ve been to at any time.

Join me as I go along this new-ish path and I hope you enjoy taking a closer peek into my life!
