I don’t use a primer everyday. I’d love to though because my oily skin and pores need a lot of help. But I also have to deal with having a sensitive skin and majority of oil-controlling and pore-filling primers out there disagree with my skin type. But when I do use a primer, I prefer to use ones that cater to all skin types like this one from Pixi. Continue reading
Last July, Shiseido Philippines had a promo wherein we can exchange any empty or unused makeup or skincare product for some of their GC’s. Makeup was equivalent to a Php 500 GC while any skincare product is equals to 2 GC’s. The catch is only one GC can be used for each item you’ll purchase and only for selected products, not including their recent releases. So basically, Php 500 will be deducted from any Shiseido item as long as they’re included in the promo. It was supposed to end last August 31 but Shiseido is extending it until September 15! (YAAASSSS!!!)
Anyway, here are some of the products I bought that I had been eyeing from their store. Continue reading
I have high expectations when it comes to Deciem products. I am currently loving their brand The Ordinary although their Coverage Foundation left me a bit hanging. But it was only one product. I am open to trying out more. Continue reading
Summer in the Philppines can be torture for anyone who has an oily skin. It’s an annual battle I deal with as far as I can remember. Primers help a whole lot but whenever I see silicones as one of the active ingredients, I think twice before using it or most of time I just back off because I am sensitive to them.

My top 10 for 2015!
I didn’t manage to try a lot of products last year but I did get to experience a few amazing items so here now are the best products I have in my stash.
1. Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Pop. This has been a serious game-changer for me the past year. Trust Jaclyn Hill to convert me into a highlighter addict. I’ve pretty much stayed away from them when I was beginning to get into makeup. For so long, I’ve believed that my oily skin would only look worse when I wear anything shimmery or frosty. I watched one of her videos before with this product where she demonstrated on the points of her face where she usually puts her highlighter on. I tried it myself and BAM! I was highlighter-hooked. It felt like a revelation. You can read my review here.
2. Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara. I finally found a mascara that can give my all-too-short-and-straight lashes the volume and length they desperately need. Anyone who has the same problems as I have should give this a go. Review here. Continue reading
