RIOT Makeup Brush Set | My Current Makeup Faves

I recently discovered this posh but very affordable makeup brush brand called RIOT BRUSHES on Instagram. It was started by a very young entrepreneur named Rya Petines because of all the expensive and imported makeup brush sets that most beginner beauty junkies can’t afford. So lo and behold, she created this Riot Girl Complete Set for only P2,500. (Tip: She has special discounts for students!) It includes the following (15) brushes: Powder Brush Angled Flat Top Kabuki Paddle Foundation Brush Angled Brush Flat Contour Fan Concealer Buffer Angled Liner Smudge Brush Bullet (crease) Brush Blending Brush Pencil Brush Shader AngledRead more

Angbao-worthy Holiday Finds at Sephora Philippines

Chinese New Year is fast approaching so I’m anticipating a handful of “Angbao” from my relatives. It’s in our grandparents’ tradition to hand out red envelopes with money inside to all those who are single in the family. (yay to being single!) So I thought of writing about angbao-worthy holiday finds at Sephora Philippines so you may know where to spend your hard-earned money from those magical red envelopes. Sephora Collection Color Wonderland Palette (P3,136.00) This baby has 78 eyeshadows, 1 base, 1 highlighter, 2 eyeliners (black and silver) and one dual-ended brush so this is one palette that you canRead more

MOSCHINO Fresh Couture Perfume

It’s very hard to impress me when it comes to packaging and design because most of the latest beauty products with special collaborations are sent to my doorstep even before they’re launched. But this MOSCHINO Fresh Couture Perfume (P4,400.00/ 100mL) is really something else. My mom and I laughed so hard when we unboxed it because of its glass cleaner-inspired bottle. I’m not very keen with fashion designers but Jeremy Scott, the creative director of Moschino, is actually one of the few designers I love. So I’m not surprised that he’s the genius behind this crazy glass bottle. This perfume livesRead more

BECCA Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette Review

I couldn’t get enough of highlighters ever since I got my hands on the BECCA Champagne Pop Skin Perfector / Highlighter (P3,082.00) from Sephora PH last year. Highlighters weren’t part of my makeup routine but I find myself swiping it on daily to add that lovely glow to my face before going out of the house. When my friends tell me I’m “blooming” I say, no, I’m glowing thanks to Becca! Haha! Anyway, last Christmas I got this BECCA Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette and I’ve been using it daily ever since the parcel landed on my doorstep. I’ve beenRead more

Sugar Factory at Shangri-la Fort Review

The holidays may be over but there’s always a reason to binge on good food!! :) I’ve been busy for the past months (when am I ever given a break!? lol) so this Sugar Factory in Shangri-La Fort review is quite overdue. The first time I actually saw the candy shop was in The Grove in Los Angeles California but it didn’t have a restaurant like the one we have here in Fort. Sugar Factory is known for its sweets but I love their Savory dishes as much as their dessert. I went back after the media event and theyRead more

A Girl’s Guide To Being A Redhead

Happy New Year, everyone!! :) I know 2016 wasn’t a favorite of most folks so let’s start the year right by talking about the Chinese lucky color — RED! As you can see in my blog entries throughout the years, I’ve had loads of hair transformations but I always end up getting a mahogany or red shade of hair color because it suits my yellowish skin tone. I think I’m already an expert with this color so I thought of writing a girl’s guide to being a redhead so I can share some makeup tips on how to match yourRead more
