A Review of the Benefit Foolproof Eyebrow Powder

Brow powder is pretty much my eyebrow product of choice. I prefer it over pencils and pomades. Even when I do other people’s makeup, I draw them and fill them in using powders. With that said, I’m super picky about the brow powder I use. A lot of the brow products in the market comeContinue reading “A Review of the Benefit Foolproof Eyebrow Powder”

Beauty Essentials Class DONE!

Last week, I finished the Beauty Essentials course at MUD Studio Manila. As I mentioned in my post about going to makeup school, the Beauty Essentials class in an introductory course to beauty and corrective makeup, and it’s a prerequisite for the Level 2 courses that I’ll be taking in March.

I’m Going to Makeup School!

Happy New Year! I must say I’m very excited for 2018 because I’ll finally be going to makeup school! I’ve been a freelance makeup artist for quite some time, and being self-taught is nothing to be ashamed of (it’s impressive even!), but I recognize that I still have so much more to learn, especially ifContinue reading “I’m Going to Makeup School!”

A Review of the Slay Colors Lipsticks

Despite my enormous collection of lipsticks, I always like to try new ones. Enter Slay Colors. They’re a Philippine-made indie cosmetics brand that caters to strong, fearless women. They’re fairly new to the beauty scene, but that doesn’t stop them from empowering independent Filipinas by creating bold, high-quality lipsticks for them. I have the shadesContinue reading “A Review of the Slay Colors Lipsticks”

Ganda for All: A Review of the Vice Cosmetics Good Vibes Lipsticks

With celebrities like the Kardashians/Jenners and Rihanna launching their own makeup lines, it was only a matter of time before Filipino stars started their own beauty lines as well.

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.

Battle of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits: Ultimate Glow Vs. Aurora

You all must know by now that I have an obsession with highlighter. I love layering them on, and I’m always in awe by how a touch of shimmer can add an extra dimension to the face. For this post, I’ll be talking about and comparing the two glow kits I always reach for whenContinue reading “Battle of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits: Ultimate Glow Vs. Aurora”

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 40Continue reading “Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation”

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 MoroccanContinue reading “Detoxify with Rraw PH’s Moroccan Clay Mask”

A Review of the Happy Skin Express Gel Polish 2-In-1 Base + Color In Queen Of His Heart

I’ve never been one to fuss over my nails. I usually just like to keep them short and clean, but lately I’ve been curious about Happy Skin’s fairly new addition to their cosmetic line: the Express Gel Polish. I decided to pick up the shade Queen Of His Heart, which is a part of theirContinue reading “A Review of the Happy Skin Express Gel Polish 2-In-1 Base + Color In Queen Of His Heart”
