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. 😉


Best of 2014 face products


When long hours at work are inevitable and I have to plunge my head on multiple tasks/errands and deadlines, I only trust the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (review) to make my makeup last until late into the night. 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


November to December 2014 Product Round Up

November December 2014 products

For the last 2 months, I was going to work with a few simple looks. Some groomed brows, barely there blush and a statement lip color.

Here’s what rocked my days last November and December. Continue reading

Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Joli Rêve | Review

Dior Fluid Stick Joli Reve

Hello everyone!

I know I promised I would get the review for the Dior Fluid Stick up soon after I posted about the beauty box I got from Cristina Madara and Shari. You all are probably thinking I forgot about it but worry not, I’m currently on break from work so I got plenty of time to edit photos and write down some reviews.

Let’s get right on to that Fluid Stick, yeah?

Tarte Gives One Magic Wish In Their Deluxe LipSurgence Lip Set

Tarte Magic Wish Deluxe Lip Set

If Tarte were to grant me one wish, I’d ask that the full size version of their LipSurgence lip tint and lip gloss be packaged instead for the Magic Wish Deluxe Lip Set. Without increasing the price, of course. (Two full sized Tarte lip products for $5? I really wish!)

It’s been a quite a while since I’ve had a new nude lip color to wear. Bold shades have pretty much dominated my vanity table lately and it’s not likely to stop soon. But I think I can make room for this duo.

Come click more for my thoughts. Continue reading

Product Round-up for June

June 2014 Products

Hello there! How have you been doing on this fine day?

As for me, June has kept my days busy and brought me a medley of new products — MAC was certainly at the forefront with their new releases — and some old ones to play around with. So busy that I wasn’t able to do a product round-up for the month of May. I apologize for that and I hope you’ll forgive me. That said, here are the products I have favored for the past month.

Alba Botanica Good & Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel and Daily Detox Foaming Cleanser (not in the photo). The combination of these two products makes me feel as if summer has never left my country. Their citrus-y scents always makes my skin feel so refreshingly clean. I promised a review of the peel last May but I recently picked up the cleanser so I thought why not just post a review of the two together. This month, I really promise. Send me a message if I don’t deliver okay?

Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation. One never knows the weather we’re going to get in the Philippines. One minute it’s raining and the next, the sun is out. Either way, I’m wet from the downpour or sweating buckets from the heat. It’s this waterproof foundation to the rescue then! Here’s my original reviewContinue reading
