Etude House Brush Shower Cleaner Review

Last week, I was on a 3 day juice cleanse and it was driving me NUTS whenever I smelled food so I locked myself at home and made a list of things to do so I’d stay productive. #1 on my list would be to clean my makeup brushes with this Etude House Brush Shower Cleaner. (P428.00/250mL or P648.00/ 500mL) The product is pretty potent so you only need a small quantity to clean a single dirty brush. This oval brush is also from Etude House and I’ve been using it with liquid foundation for over a month of no cleaning.Read more

Watsons K-Beauty

Long before Korean drama addiction began in the Philippines, I was already hooked with Korean skincare. It all started when I visited Korea back in the early 2000’s and I fell in love with Etude House. Since then, I would always bug friends and family to bring home Korean makeup and skincare whenever they fly to Seoul. But now, it’s so convenient to buy my preferred brands because most of these Korean products are already available in our local stores and most of them can be found in the Watsons K-Beauty section! With the booming popularity of K-Beauty, Watsons is curatingRead more

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

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

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.
