Fantastic Face Mists And Where To Find Them

Hold it. This is purely a beauty-related post. No spoilers ahead for the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie because I haven’t watched it yet!! Would have been nice if I could use some references from the film. Soooo here are a few Face Mists that I’m sure a lot of people still don’t know about because they see it as an additional expense. But trust me, you’ll have skin as glowing as Eddie Redmayne’s when he portrayed the Danish Girl once you start including these face mists in your daily regimen. Let’s start with the most basic oneRead more

Smudge Test: Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Liner VS Aqua Eyes Review

Make Up For Ever was one of the first five luxe makeup brands that I started with back when I was building my first professional makeup kit 6 or 7 years ago. I enrolled for a crash course in their makeup school and I remember falling in love with their Aqua Eyes Liner and Aqua Brow Gel.

Staycation at Belmont Hotel Manila + Annie The Musical at Resorts World Manila

I started a tradition last year to have staycations instead of holding parties during my birthday. That way, I can get to relax and unwind by myself or celebrate with a smaller group. I sent my parents and friends to Discovery Shores Boracay during my birthday weekend last 2015. For this year, I decided to spend it with my sister at Belmont Hotel in Newport City, across Resorts World Manila. For our first meal, we had a heavy brunch at Cafe Belmont. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much since I’ve never heard of the restaurant prior to my stay. But ORead more

I’m sure you’re wondering, “What does an apple have to do with skin care?”. Well, I tried out an experiment to see the difference of using the right sunscreen brand VS a cheaper face cream.

You can try it out yourself by preparing the following items: Physiogel® Daily Defence Protective Day Cream Light SPF 15 Any facial cream for comparison (I’ll call mine “Brand X”) Apple Knife STEP ONE: Cut the apple into half, revealing two equal innerRead more
