Beauty Review: Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Colors

I was going back and forth about which liquid lipstick to buy next after getting the Matte in Detail Liquid Lipsticks (that was such a fail, btw). I wanted to dive into the higher-end brands (ehem Chanel; ehem bareMinerals) but decided against it in the end as I’m a little bit too broke to be spending 1000php+ on a single lipstick.

So when I was browsing Stuff in Style, I saw this Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Colors. A friend recommended this to me months ago and said that they’re fairly comparable to the infamous Kylie Lip Kits. Continue reading


A Harmful Ingredient in Skincare and Makeup

You’ve probably seen this one product in my latest What’s New post—the It’s Skin Power 10 Formula VB Effector. It’s a serum that’s purported to be infused with Vitamin B6 to control one’s sebum (which I have a lot of).

The thing is, I have only been recently into skincare so I don’t really have all the knowledge about this particular topic just yet. So being the skincare-curious person that I now am, I decided to do my research and figure out what Vitamin B6 is exactly and what its benefits are to our skin. Continue reading

14 Days After: The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

By now, I think we’ve all heard of DECIEM’s The Ordinary. It’s most likely one of the most-talked-about recently-launched beauty brands in the world today! And most of us probably have the Wayne Goss to thank for that (if you don’t know who he is, what the fuck are you doing with your life?).

So the first product from the brand that I tested out is the Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA. If you’re not familiar with Arbutin, it’s  a glycoside extracted from a bearberry plant that prevents the formation of melanin. It is, therefore, one of the most common ingredients in a lot of whitening, skin-lightening products.

Beauty Review: Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder

Didn’t I tell you before that I was a little out of it in the beauty world and have not had any idea as to what is going on, what the latest trends are, or what products people are raving about these days? But that’s just me. And you’ve probably heard of the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder before. I mean, I’m sure you have as the thing has been around since the 1930s!

Not me, though. Continue reading


Ain’t got no time fo’ that: Extensive Skin Care Routine & Full Face of Makeup

So I was watching this random video that I saw on my YouTube Home page about these two Americans (one’s black and one’s of Asian descent) trying out the 100-step Korean skin care routine (exaggerating, of course, but we all know how extensive the Korean’s skin care routine is) for a full week.

By the end of the video, the black woman said that her face had never been “cleaner” so she will continue with the same routine. The Asian woman, on the other hand, said that she can’t wait to go back to her old routine although her face was indeed better during that week. She also kept complaining about how she has to do so much and the entire thing takes up too much of her time (about 30 minutes each for mornings and evenings). Continue reading
