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


MAC Lightful C SPF 50 Quick Finish Cushion Compact | Review

MAC Lightful C SPF 50 Quick Finish Cushion Compact3

My friend once said that the best compact powder she has ever had was the Lightful Powder Foundation. Even if one compact costs a lot, I remember her telling me she’d buy it again. Fast forward 5 years later and I’ve become a beauty addict, blogging in my free time. Now cushion foundations have become major trend and MAC has joined in the fray in the form of the Lightful C Cushion Foundation.

I bought it last year when they had a promo in stores. For every cushion compact and refill bought, the total was less than Php 3,000. I thought it was quite a deal. Continue reading

MAC Viva Glam Sia Lipstick | Review

MAC Viva Glam Sia

I wasn’t supposed to get a red lipstick from MAC. I had a low-buy plan at the start of the year and I had only allowed myself to get from MAC a lipstick I can wear everyday (and a highlighter). But then they announced their collaboration with Sia for a Viva Glam lipstick and the plan just went out the window.

You see, I love Sia. I still think her albums, Colour the Small One (2004) and We Are Born (2010) are her best ones. Anyway this lipstick is for a good cause so why not?

Today, I have another wishlist up my sleeve and these are all the new and upcoming highlighters from the beauty community that I’m very interested in. I might get them all but it doesn’t mean, I can’t do a show-and-tell thru my blog post.

Let’s begin, shall we? Continue reading

My Low Buy Plan for 2018

Makeup stash Jan 2018

Yes dear readers of mine, just as I’ve mentioned it on my New Year’s resolution list, I fully intend to be on a low-buy phase, both in the skincare and in makeup department. For the past few days, I’ve been trying to organize my stash and I found out a couple of untouched and slightly used makeup and skincare. Some I have completely forgotten about. In an effort to use them up, I’ve brought them out within easy reach.

Rather than produce a list of brands I won’t be spending money on — because let’s face it, if I’m going to take this seriously, it’s going to be quite a long list — I’ll be restricting my buys to brands I know have been special to me. I have carefully narrowed them down here and some with specific items only. Continue reading
