Will not be posting here anymore. Kthxbai!
Just because I want a quiet life. :) Will not delete the old posts though ^^; I just feel like it’s a hassle to some folks who have linked to a review or two of some products I tried. Thanks for reading my posts, you know whoever you are. Thanks to all the new people I’ve interacted with, etc. Happy new year! Hope you have a great life in 2012!

On pictures and being self-conscious
Yesterday we went to Bulacan because it was Christmas. We had a wonderful feast for lunch and we had some fun and games. I think that my mom’s side of the family has an addiction to bingo during special occasions like the town fiesta, birthdays and of course, Christmas. So we had some time of taking pictures. I really don’t feel comfortable about having my picture taken for so many...
Skin Food (SM North Edsa) sale - Dec 26 to Jan 15
Skin Food fans who live near SM North (or who can easily travel there) will have a sale of selected items up to 50% off. I just got this message on my phone this afternoon. I like Skin Food products and considering it’s 50% off, I suppose it’s heck lot affordable compared to their regular shop prices and will probably be competitive against online shops. At least you get to try some...
Review: Human Nature Lip Balms
Disclaimer: My Human Nature lip balm in watermelon was bought in Beauty Bar Greenbelt 5 some time ago. The Human Nature tinted lip balm in Island Kiss was sent to me by their team. Maybe I should do a comparative review or something? I dunno haha. I could just say that I like them both for different reasons? That would be too simple, I guess. Anyway, here it goes. The Comparison Texture ...

B-Spot-ted! Benefit Cosmetics Sneak Peek
I was invited to join the bloggers’ sneak peek at the B-Spot, a.k.a. the Benefit Cosmetics office in Bonifacio Global City last November 29.

Review: Luview Aqua Essence Whitening BB Cream
Disclaimer: I bought this product from Luview’s online shop that is open internationally. Another product review! I’ve been using two of Luview’s products for more than a month now. Not everyday but pretty much on a regular basis. The first product I reviewed was Glossy Kiss and now it’s their Aqua Essence Whitening BB Cream. Product description (based on their...
Good grief~! Sabaw mode on.
I forgot to post about about a giveaway from Kikay Trekkie. I think that my cramming for a formal event didn’t really help me in remembering stuff like that. ~_~ Graaah. But now that the event is over, I am now sorta back to normal. :) I have yet to post about other stuff I’ve tried out and brands that I love. There’s a draft I want to post within the day because it’s...

Check out her blog for posts about various makeup and...
Review: Luview Glossy Kiss
Disclaimer: I got this product when I entered an online contest by Luview Cosmetics. I was supposed to get a particular bb cream but because it was already a gift when I purchased some items from them, so I got this instead. This is part of the Luview Cosmetics haul I posted about before. I am more of a lip gloss girl. I have more lipstick than lip gloss but that’s because I want to match...
Christmas gift ideas, anyone?
My boyfriend and I usually do our Christmas shopping together. Especially when it comes to giving stuff to our common friends. We still haven’t made a complete list of people to give stuff to but I think we should start ahaha. In any case, we need a list of possible ideas. His relatives happen to be more feminine. 1. Tony Moly Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint and a lip brush This is for...
Current makeup routine (as of 27 November 2011)
I don’t always go out wearing makeup. But when I do it’s usually like this: 1. Nature Republic oil control mist sprayed all over my face 2. Luview Aqua Essence bb cream spread all over my face 3. Skin Food Buckwheat Loose Powder #23 to set the bb cream 4. Etude House Drawing Eyebrow to fill in the gaps 5. K-palette liquid eyeliner on the upper lashline, never reaching the corners...
Makeup Fail #3: Forgetting your makeup kit!
The makeup fail series is something that I write whenever I experience something or if I learned something new from my friends regarding makeup trouble, etc. I am new to makeup and these days I’ve been going out with a bare face, more or less. Sometimes I go out only wearing sunblock. Sometimes it’s powder, sunblock and lip balm. And of course, there are times when I go out wearing a...
Excited for Benefit's Holiday Sets! →
I am so excited for Benefit’s Holiday sets! To be honest, I’ve only learned about the brand some time in July. I was looking for reviews of Etude House products. And I saw other blog entries about other makeup brands like Benefit. I have online and offline friends who swear by the blushes of this brand, actually. Especially Dandelion. :) One of their products that I’ve been...
Etude House: French Manicure Tip Guide
I love what Erika Jjang did to her nails! So cute ♥ I should get these guides too because I am really bad at French tip style on my nails! I have new nail polishes at home which I got from Nature Republic in SM Fairview. Love the glittery brown one I got. It’s kinda like caramel colored with shimmers ♥ Anyway, enjoy this blog post from Erika Jjang! erikajjang: Annyong haseyo!!! :)...
Haul: NYX Lippies!
My friend Kathy went to the Super Sale Bazaar last week and she found Nyx makeup stuff! I couldn’t resist when she said it was ok if I wanted her to pick up a couple of stuff for me. So here they are: Ta-dah! Look at the swatches: I just had to try them right away, of course! I can’t stand the thought of not trying out these lippies! That is one lipstick I don’t regret...
Got my NYX lippies and...
I love the round lipstick in Fig! ♥ But I am not sure how I should wear San Paulo @_@ It’s too red for me. I dunno. It looks formal. Maybe I should’ve gone with Antwerp or Stockholm. But Stockholm might be harder to wear. I dunno. WAAAAAH. Now what should I do?! O_o
Brands that I use: Etude House
I have only started getting really conscious about my skin and how I look some time in June/July 2011. After that, I became hooked on to Korean brands mainly but it doesn’t mean I don’t use others. :) Here’s a list of brands that I have come to trust Etude House Tony Moly Skin Food Luview Cetaphil Celeteque Human Nature/Human Heart Nature But let me talk about Etude House...
Makeup Fail #2: Raccoon eyes because of runny...
This happens to me a lot! My eyelids are really oily and my eyes water easily. Sometimes I yawn and then after that my eyes are already super watery. UGH. I really hate it when that happens. I’ve tried various eyeliners. So far here are the methods that work for me, more often than not. At least I am pretty sure they work for me when draw lines near my upper lashline. But note that these...

Couldn't resist buying a bag
Saw a pretty bag in Charles & Keith here in Singapore. It’s S$ 69.90 (roughly PhP 2300). By the time it hits the Manila branch, it’s probably around PhP 3,500? And it might take many months. I dunno. It’s one of the newer bags so my friend told me that if I really want it, I should get it already before I regret it. I honestly don’t buy a lot of bags. But this one...
Guess who got a K-Palette eyeliner?
