As a doctor, even before I went into Dermatology, I’ve encountered a fair number of patients diagnosed with Breast Cancer — terminally ill, first time diagnosed or survivors.

In support, I’ll be showing you swatches of my pink blushes. Ladies, get ready. Continue reading

Hauls and More

May Haul

Makeup junkies like me surely knew about the Great Maybelline/Loreal/Revlon sale that happened last month right? Also, SM had its weekend sale so while in the area, I excused myself from my family to go to the beauty section of the department store. My sister was in awe actually. She couldn’t believe I would skip out on an H&M sale in favor of discounted beauty products.

I couldn’t believe it either. Whoa, did I really do that??

But back to the topic, here are the things I bought:

Best of My 2014 Product Round Up

The past year has been amazing. I met people online and offline who are just as addicted to makeup as I am. I, the girl behind her glasses, am extremely thankful to everyone who has taken their time to visit my little corner on the web, liked my posts and commented.

Now, what beauty blog would this be if I don’t list down the most amazing finds I have discovered in 2014? So sit back, relax, grab a cup of tea or hot cocoa, perhaps some biscuits too if you want. Here they are, the best of the best products, in my opinion at least. 😉

Or when, you know, there’s no time to reapply my makeup for after-work dinner and drinks. In second place is the Purely Cosmetics Oil Absorb Powder (review). Sometimes, I add a little dusting of it if I feel I’m going to be exposed to a more humid environment. It does help in keeping the oilies away for a few more hours. Continue reading

Catrice Eyeshadows

When my brother and I went to the 35th Manila International Book Fair at the Mall of Asia SMX Convention Center, I realized that the Beauty Department of the SM Department Store was right across the street.

I was given the chance to browse quickly — less than an hour, yo. I zeroed in on Catrice Cosmetics immediately and began dipping my fingers on different pans to swatch blushes, eyeshadows, bronzers and highlighters as fast as I could.

I’ve already showed you one of their blushes. Now’s the time to show you the eyeshadows that came home with me. Continue reading
