The Zulu Eye Shadow Palette by Juvia’s Place

I have way too many eye shadow palettes as it is, but that didn’t stop me from acquiring The Zulu Eye Shadow Palette by Juvia’s Place. I was debating on whether to get this or the mini Masquerade Palette (also by Juvia’s Place), and I ultimately decided on The Zulu because, while the Masquerade Palette has a lot of bright, bold, colors, it also has some neutral shades. I only really needed brighter colors, so the choice was easy to make. In this post, I’ll be talking about The Zulu Palette and my experience with it.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

Rihanna has changed the game with the recent launch of her new makeup line, Fenty Beauty. She’s come out with highlighters, brushes, and contour sticks, but I think the pièce de résistance of her new line is the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Being new to the makeup game didn’t stop RiRi from launching 40 different shades for her foundation line. The inclusivity of Fenty Beauty is impressive and praiseworthy, and I’m sure many other people of color would agree with me. With this said, I had to get one of the foundations for myself, so I ordered one from Sephora.ph, and now I’ll share my thoughts on it in this post.

Let’s Talk About Cleansing Oil

I don’t know about you, but I always hate the hassle of removing makeup, especially eye makeup. Thankfully, cleansing oil exists! Cleansing oil is a lazy girl’s saving grace when it comes to removing makeup. Don’t be intimidated by the word oil. What makes cleansing oil so great is that it rinses off very easily. In this post, I’ll be talking about the one I’ve been using recently: the Bioré Cleansing Oil.

Detoxify with Rraw PH’s Moroccan Clay Mask

Once a week (mostly Sundays), I sit down in front of my vanity, take a good look at my skin, be horrified by my blackheads and pores, and ultimately decide that it’s time for a face mask. If you’ve read my Rraw PH Haul post, you’ll know that I picked up the Rraw PH Moroccan Clay Mask. I’ve been using it consistently, and in this post, I’m going to share my thoughts on and experience with it.

The Casual Black Lip

There’s nothing more intimidating than stark, black lips. Because of its boldness, it can be difficult to figure out how to work a black lip look.

5 Moisturizers That Are Great For Oily Skin

Even if you have oily skin, you still need to use moisturizer. This must be one of the most overused sentences said by beauty gurus everywhere. As overused as it is, it still rings true, and a surprising amount of people think that because they have oily skin, they don’t need moisturizer. Well, guess what? Since your skin produces sebum to add moisture to your face, then that means that an overactive oil gland is compensating for a lack of moisture and hydration. Adding a moisturizer to your skincare routine will actually help control and lessen sebum production. If you’re not sure how to pick a moisturizer, then you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a list of moisturizers that are great for oily skin. I’ve tried and tested a lot of moisturizers, and I find the ones listed below helped best to control my skin.

Fashion Favorite: I.M. Presa Circle Shawls

When it comes to keeping myself warm, I’ve always been a cardigan type of girl. Scarves and shawls were reserved only for those who actually experience winter weather and, well, the Titas of Manila. It was only last month that I started getting into the whole scarf look, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. The particular brand of scarves I’m really into is I.M. Presa Circle Shawls.

Two Product Face Using Glossier

My skin is clear, my dark circles haven’t been too bad, and lately, I’ve been embracing the all-natural look. With that said, I’m a huge lover of all things makeup, so I really feel the need to wear it even when I want to look like my I-woke-up-like-this self. It’s just fun for me. I’ve purchased two products from Glossier that help me achieve my I-might-as-well-not-be-wearing-any-makeup makeup look, namely the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint and the Glossier Boy Brow. I got both products from @glossiermnl. They’re super friendly and helpful, and I would totally buy more stuff from them if I wasn’t being so strict with myself and my spending habits (sigh).
