The Box PH’s DeTech(TM) Multi-Functional Blackhead Remover: Introduction + Review

Hello loves!

Ever had the problem of Blackhead? They are just the most annoying thing! Unlike the usual pimples that get smaller and eventually go away with proper care, blackheads just stay there for weeks and I really don't like looking at them. 

Aside from being so stubborn, they are so hard and painful to remove too! If you do it wrong, it will lead to serious skin damage. Yikes!

So when I got this email from The Box PH suggesting a collaboration by reviewing one of their products, I was so excited because it actually helps get rid of the annoying blackheads!!

So to make my return brighter, here's a swatch post of a highlighter AND it's sort of a rainbow highlighter! ;)

By Terry Cheek to Cheek in Cherry Cruise

Hi dolls!

Just sharing a short swatch post.

My sister gave me this blush tint when I visited her last year. By Terry is a brand that I have positive impressions because I like the few products from them that I have tried so far. All of them were given by my sister. Anyway, today's post is about...

Eye Palette Sunrise and Moonrise BLC x Althea

Hi loves!

When Althea Korea first released their makeup collection, I was so thrilled to share them with you because of how great they are. But out of all the items I shared, I think the eyeshadow palette became my favorite instantly.

So for today's post, I'll share swatches and the looks I made using the...

Review : Prestige Cosmetics Universal Brow Styler Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil

Hey guys!

Sharing a short review of one of the products that I was able to get in a very affordable price. I do like to bargain hunt and if I find something good, the feeling of scoring it becomes even better. Anyway, here the main topic for today's post:

Introducing Althea Korea's A'Bloom Range + Review

Hello loves!

Another exciting batch of goodies were just released by our favorite K-Beauty online shop, Althea Korea! I'm so thrilled to share my reviews of the products because all these are things that I use frequently when I do skincare and makeup.

I received this package a few weeks ago and it contained these cutely packaged goodies. One of the reasons why Korean beauty products are so popular is their cutesy designs and I know why they keep doing it—the joy and kilig of owning such a cute thing feels wonderful! I am always drawn to beautifully designed things so I keep on buying them. Just look at those masks! Each design has its own personality (check out that lemon with the smug face!). And don't you just want to squish those meringue-shaped makeup sponges!?

Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in G125 Naiad

Hey loves!

So the elections just ended and I'm seeing the unofficial count of the votes, and I have to be honest, I'm not happy with what I'm seeing. Since I want to think of anything else but the elections in the Philippines, I'll just post something makeup related on the blog to somehow lighten my mood by just a but. I guess just a quick swatch post will do.

Kat Von D Lock-it Concealer in Light 18

Hello dears!

I'm just sharing a short review of this product. I've been meaning to write this for a long time and when I finally decided to work on it, I learned that it was DISCONTINUED! Oh well. The review is pretty much useless now since it's not available in the market anymore, BUT I think that since there's a stick version that replaces this, then this post will be like a journal entry that I can go back to if ever I buy the new version and compare it with this one. So yeah, here's my short review of the...

Althea Watercolor Cream Tint

Hello loves!

Just a couple of months ago, I blogged about the first ever collection created by our one-stop Korean Beauty shop, Althea. You can check out my post about the entire collection and my initial thoughts and quick review for each one of them on THIS post.

Today, let me share with you a more detailed review of their Watercolor Cream Tints. To be honest, I was not a fan of tints much. I like liquid lipsticks but lip tints aren't really my thing because I like opaque colors and some tints make dry lips more obvious most of the time. The Althea Watercolor Cream Tints are a different case though!

March - April (2019) Haul - A Bit of Shopping in Thailand

Hey guys!

Just two weeks ago, I was in Thailand for the first time. We went to Bangkok and Chiang Mai to visit some of their temples and other popular tourist destinations. I even celebrated Songkran for the first time! Wooot! Of course, I had to check out places like Chatuchak and Or Tor Kor Market and I couldn't help but buy some items to bring back home. So in the first part of this post, let me show you the stuff I bought during my trip in Thailand..

First are these Snake Brand Prickly Heat Cooling Powders. The first thing I noticed when I stepped on Thailand is he heat! I was in Bangkok and it's hotter than Manila! I never liked hot temperatures so I try to avoid going outside for a long time, specially during the summer and since I'll be doing some tourist-y things, I need something to help me feel fresh, even for just a small amount of time... you know, like a bit of refresher... Anyway, when I saw the powders, I was intrigued because I haven't tried anything like that before. It was affordable too so I bought some and added some more to give to some friends. 

It smells good, but it doesn't really give that instant cooling effect. It's more for prevention of heat rash but I did read about it being a good foot powder though I haven't tried that one yet. Anyway, I feel like I'll be using this a lot still since it is still the middle of summer in the Philippines.

Sigma Sinuosity Lash Mascara

Hi dolls!

Looking for a mascara that doesn't hold down your lashes?
I accidentally found one just because I wanted to meet a specific amount to avail a promo on a purchase at Sephora. Haha! I wasn't thinking of buying a mascara back then but I was short of a few bucks so I looked at other products and saw this...

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Celebrity Skin

Hello loves!

I've mentioned in a post that it's only recently that I was able to try any of Jeffree Star's cosmetics. I opted to try the liquid lipstick because that's the one that I've seen many raved about.

The first product I reviewed from the brand was a gift and the one I'll share in this post is my personal purchase...

NOTD: Girl on Fire

Hello loves!

A few days ago, I saw one post from Caronia Philippines' Facebook account that shows a nail art challenge. This contest has been on-going for months now as a celebration of the brand's 50th anniversary in the beauty industry.

The nail art challenge is open to everyone who uses the classic Caronia Nail Polishes. The rules are easy to follow too. Caronia just uploads a nail art design each week and you recreate it. They even recommended the shades used in the design, but it's okay to not use the particular shade and even mix your own creative twists in the design as long as it's still related to the week's theme. You can only use all Caronia products though, which is just fair since it is their contest. They announce the winner of that particular week's challenge after a few days and they also have a new design again for others to join and get a chance to win. I think they do it weekly and there have been a handful or more winners already.

So when I saw this design—Girl on Fire, I thought it was easy enough for me to copy. The other designs were just too hard! Haha! Anyway, I think that this week's design is so feisty too that I was just attracted to it. Good thing I have enough Caronia nail polishes to join the contest. 

So here's my entry...

Review : Althea Spotlight Eye Glitter

Hello dolls!

I've mentioned several times in older posts that I like glitter so when Althea released their makeup line that included these, I got so excited and squealed like I was seven years-old again who just received a Barbie doll...

BYS Prismatic Eyeshadow Palette

Hello lovelies!

I'm a big fan of glitters and I love adding sparkles when I do my makeup once in a while... and I don't mean a few glitters, I want shiny sparkles! I usually like the glitters on my eyeshadow, but I rarely find the eyeshadow that has the chunks of shiny glitter that I like. I only find shimmery ones and often are just metallic. When I do find some with chunky glitters, they are usually cream type eyeshadows and those rarely last long on my oily lids. 

So when I saw that BYS Cosmetics had a sale on their eyeshadow palettes, I was interested to check out their collection and saw this...

December (2018) to January (2019) Haul

Hey dolls! 

I'm so proud to say that I successfully stopped myself from buying anything for the past month. I did some major shopping during December and January because of all the Christmas and end of season sales. I just couldn't help myself because I love getting good deals. And I really like everything I got. 

So let me share the items I bought. If you see anything you're curious about and want a review, comment them below!

First off are my Althea Korea purchases. Althea, hands down, gave us super great deals during the holidays and I ordered not just once, not twice, but three times!!!

Romantic Makeup Looks for the Love Month Using the First Ever Althea Exclusive Makeup

Hello loves!

Valentine's Day might be over but the love month is still on-going! Create romantic makeup looks every day for the rest of the love month. Heck, even after February! Let's all be lovely and blooming throughout the year!

In this post, I'll share with you three makeup looks that I've sported in the past few days. I used newly-released products that I'm really excited to share with all of you.

I'm pretty sure that by now, you guys know about Althea Korea, an online shop where you can get various K-Beauty products. And I've been an Althea Angel for a few months now, meaning I get to try exclusive products early and share with you guys the exciting news that Althea Korea has to offer.

Since the brand started creating exclusive products, most of them were in skincare which is very understandable. Korean beauty is known for it's flawless skin and the ten-step Korean skincare routine. Now, the artist in me who loves colors is just so excited because Althea Korea released their own makeup products!

Review : Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and Poreless Foundation

Hello dears!

Some months ago, there was this hype about this foundation from Maybelline that made me curious to try it out myself. I've read many positive reviews about it and I like the part that it gives a matte and poreless finish, good coverage, and it's affordable! At least, those are some of the qualities I was able to see in other reviews. So I got one for my own and see if these are true.

Review : Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser

Hey dolls!

Almost every month, Althea has been introducing various skincare products for us to try. As a one-stop online shop for all thing K-beauty, it's just natural that they'll work on skincare products to achieve the flawless "Koreana skin" that we oh so envy! 

What I've liked so far from the different product exclusives they've released is the part where the products usually serve multiple purposes. There are cleansers that are also masks, toners that can also be a primer, and so on. So far, I have only but positive reviews for the ones I've tried and what's awesome is that Althea hasn't stopped from creating these innovative goods!

BeYu The Matt Liner in Blue Desire and White Smoke

Hi dears!

I think I've mentioned before that I like to do double eyeliners. I like putting a light colored eyeliner at the top of the usual black eyeliner. It just gives a bolder impact that way and I really like how it looks on my eyes.

So while browsing the counters of Beauty Bar, these caught my eye...

For the past few months, I've been discovering new products brought to us by Althea. As one of the Althea Angels, I'm able to try the Althea Exclusives and so far, I'm loving all of them.

NOTD: Peachy Cutie

Hey dolls!

I haven't been doing NOTDs for a while and that's because I haven't painted my nails for a long time... or I just once in a while then it will take months before I apply again. I just wanted to rest my nails from all the painting I've done before.

But for now, I want my nails to look prettier so I looked at my newer nail polishes to see what would be nice to put on. As I was browsing the shades included in Caronia's 50th Anniversary sets, I remembered that the new color of the year is a peach shade so I looked for the shade closest to the Pantone's color of the year 2019—Living Coral.
Eventually, I ended up with this...

NYX Vivid Brights Colored Liquid Liner in Vivid Blossom

Hello dears!

I'm getting fond of adding another eyeliner on top of my black eyeliner lately, usually a brightly colored one, or even white. It just adds a pop to the overall eye makeup and I think it looks good in my almost hooded eyelids.

Here's one eyeliner I like to use...
