My Summer-Proof Makeup Base Routine

2018 Summer-Proof Base Routine

Today’s post won’t be a product review. The reason is I’m trying to cram as much as I can for my review and starting today until I finish my exam, I’ll be posting less frequently. I’ll probably won’t write much reviews too because products generally require more thought and close observation from me which I really can’t afford right now. Instead, I might post something short every now and then just so you guys know I’m still kicking it, LOL.

Anyway, today I want to share my base routine this summer. Continue reading

Revlon Colorstay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin | Review

Revlon Colorstay Makeup for Combination Oily Skin Ivory

For years, I’ve heard and read numerous positive reviews about the Revlon Colorstay Makeup and how it’s the perfect drugstore foundation for oily skin. But back then I was wary because I experienced some bad reactions from a couple of drugstore products and as a result, I didn’t trust them all that much. However, over the years, I’ve seen how drugstore brands have upped their game and made better formulas. And I felt it was finally time I tried the Colorstay Foundation. Continue reading

Top Cranberry Lip Combinations

Cranberry Lip Combo

Today, I’m going to show you all about my current favorite lip liner, MAC Cranberry, and some of the wonderful lip colors I have paired it up with.

First of all, I wanted to entitle this as, “More Reasons to Fall in Love With The Cranberry Lip Liner: My Top 5 Lip Combinations”. It sounded so good in my head but it turned out to be a mouthful.

Second, I wanted to narrow it down to the top 5 but I was having difficulty in picking the lipsticks I wanted to feature so I apologize, it ended up not being a “top 5” thing.

It’s a top-6 instead. Wink. I’m silly that way.

Here they are: Continue reading

April 2014 Products3

Hey everyone! There hasn’t been much that went on last April. Aside from starting the Game Changer series and getting addicted to Wayne Goss‘ and Karima of Shameless Fripperies‘ Youtube channel, this month’s product round-up is a short list. Some are new and the others are products I’ve recently rediscovered.

The Newbies:

Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation (OC-1). A total favorite and holy grail material! I’ve set aside all my other foundations and I’ve been using this one everyday. All my thoughts here.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice. I finally found this shade at a Revlon counter. Or maybe I was just too distracted every time I come near one by the Lacquer Balms to explore the lipsticks carefully.

Alba Botanica Good & Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel. This is a new addition to my skincare. I’ve been using this for two weeks now and I’m in love with how it smells, like a fresh glass of lemonade on a sunny day. I’m giving it a couple more weeks before I give a review.

Topshop Bronzer in Mohawke. I would’ve dubbed it the best bronzer except it doesn’t last that long but it’s matte and neutral. Read my review here. Continue reading
