2017 in Review: Makeup Picks of the Year

Best Makeup Picks in 2017

Hello, hello! Another year has ended and as per tradition, you get to see which products made my list. Unlike last year when I did separate posts for each makeup category, (e.g. highlighters, eyeshadow palettes, etc.), I’ll be just putting all of my picks here in one entry. There’s no order to this so let’s start. Continue reading


Jeffree Star Cosmetics x Manny MUA Skin Frost Eclipse | Review

Jeffree Star Skin Frost Eclipse

Last year, I hailed the Skin Frosts from Jeffree Star Cosmetics as one of the best highlighters I’ve used. And if I didn’t concern myself with how the darker shades would look on my light skin, I’d probably be on my way to buying them all. But I did, so I’m always waiting for the next new Skin Frost shade. Here comes the one from the collaboration with Manny MUA. Continue reading

Top Liquid Lipstick Picks for 2016


This is another post that should’ve been up ages ago so forgive me if this comes quite late. Anyway, I mentioned that last year I got into three beauty products, highlighters, eyeshadow palettes and liquid lipsticks. Today, I’ll be listing down the most memorable liquid lipsticks that made my year in no particular order.

ColourPop Cosmetics have some amazing products. I got two shades of the Ultra Matte Lips but sadly those felt punishing on my lips. The Ultra Satin Lips, on the other hand, are comfortable and light. They don’t suck the moisture out of the lips nor do they leave them cracked and flaky during the day. Continue reading

Best Highlighters of My 2016

Highlighters of 2016

Clockwise from left side: LM Matte Radiance Baked Powder (Highlight-01) | MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Lightscapade) | Essence Pure Nude Highlighter | Jeffree Star Skin Frost (Peach Goddess) | ColourPop Super Shock Cheek (Lunch Money & Smokin’ Whistles)

I have been one crazy highlighter lady this year. I can’t believe I have accumulated a lot. I think it started late last year with Jaclyn Hill’s Champagne Pop. Anyway, let’s get down to my favorite highlighters I got this year!

Essence Pure Nude Highlighter. I was so glad I managed to snag myself this drugstore gem before the year ends. The hype is real you guys. And I’m kind of wondering if there are other drugstore products out there that are just as amazing. Share them with me down below in the comments. Even if they’re not highlighters! Continue reading

2016 In Review: Hits, Misses, Empties and Pans

HIts of 2016

Just a few more days to go before 2016 comes to a close, can you believe it? Anyway, I usually do the year-end product round up every January of the following year but this time though, I thought I’d do it earlier.


For me, 2016 was a year of highlighters, liquid lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes. Those 3 basically littered my vanity table from drugstore brands to high end products. Instagram has been a huge enabler (and help?) for my addiction, introducing me to different brands and people who further enable me, thus a never-ending cycle. Continue reading
