MAC x Maine Mendoza Lipstick | Review

The only way I could enjoy a red lipstick is if it’s a true red or has a cool undertone. For me, those types of reds can make you look more confident and of course, make your teeth look whiter. Those are some of the reasons I got excited when MAC Philippines announced that Maine Mendoza is collaborating with them again for their #MACMaker series and this time, it’s not just a lipstick but there’s also a Lipglass, both of which are in bold shades of red.

MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly | Review

After coming back from Taiwan last December, we headed to the Duty Free Fiesta Mall in Paranaque City for some holiday shopping.

MAC Cosmetics Patrick Starrr Set Powder | Review

MAC PatrickStarrr Set Powder

To us Filipino makeup addicts, Patrick Starrr is, well a really, really bright star. And an idol. His status as a beauty influencer makes us proud. His collaboration with MAC affirms that status. And really, since he’s a Filipino and he came here in the Philippines just last week for the collection, doesn’t it make sense to send more of the items here in the Philippines? I’m saying this because the setting powder sold out on the first day of release. But nevertheless, I got my hands on it. Continue reading
