NARS Hydrating Glow Tint in Light | Review

NARS Hydrating Glow Tint

I didn’t have plans to get the Hydrating Glow Tint from the NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg collection. Honest. But I did try it on the back of my hand when I passed by NARS the first week it had arrived here. And as far as first impressions go, I like it. More than a week later, I detoured by the NARS boutique in Makati on the way home to get myself a tube. Continue reading

Makeup Picks for Spring 2017

Spring 2017 Wishlist

Holiday season is now over so here I am making up more room for some of the goodies that Spring will bring. I’ve always loved the idea of bright and fresh makeup for Spring after the holidays. With that in mind, let me go build up another wishlist.

The Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur already has swatches available online courtesy of the lovely Temptalia. Majority of the colors are permanent so no need to be in a hurry but just so you know there are 2 limited edition shades, Tangerine and Carmin. Continue reading

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | Review

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint

I had always wanted to get a tinted moisturizer for days when I don’t use a foundation but still want to cover up some of my  minor skin issues. Something along the lines of my-skin-but-better look. The Velvet Matte Skin Tint was always at the forefront of my mind but whenever I stop by the NARS counters and ask if they have my shade, I always get a negative response, until one day when they did have it in stock.

September 2014 Product Round-up

September 2015 Product Round Up

Last month was mostly about me and my skin. Nothing much about makeup that particularly stood out. I do have some items for reviews in the upcoming days.

Yves Roches Jardins de Monde Brazilian Coffee Beans Shower Cream. This smells deliciously like a chocolate-coffee drink. I love using it every time I hop in the shower. I seriously want to go back to Yves Rocher for more. You can read my review here.

Yves Rocher Hydra Specific White Contour Regard Eye Care. This eye cream was included with the shower cream I bought last month. I don’t know if they have discontinued this product or not but it’s not in any of the websites of Yves Rocher in any country. And, everything from the Hydra Specific White range was being sold at 50% off. To review or not to review, that’s the question.

Etude House Collagen Moistfull Essence. My mom actually gave this to me after she found it too sticky for daytime use. I told her to apply it before bedtime instead but she just gave up on it. I’m the one who’s using it, at night mostly but sometimes during the day too when I’m at home and I don’t have to go out.

Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfect Concealer. Last month was ‘breakout season’. Maybe because I was more stressed than usual but I’ve got comedones, angry pimples and post-acne marks dotting my chin, forehead and cheeks. My family and friends have all noticed! I’ve been bringing this concealer in my kit to cover them up. My review can be found here.

Nivea Creme. Amping up my skincare just a bit, I added this cream to my night routine after reading this article saying how Nivea can rival and best even the most expensive moisturizer.

Etude House Play 101 Pencils.Out of all the shades I bought from Etude House, #8 and #50 have been a part of my makeup routine as an eyeshadow base and eyeliner, respectively. See the other shades I have here.

Catrice Absolute Eye Colour. I was finally able to visit Catrice Cosmetics in SM MOA. I got a couple of items including this eyeshadow called My First Copperware Party. It’s become my go-to eyeshadow for several days now. Already featured it in my first FOTD I posted here.
