REVIEW: L’Oreal Color Riche Gold Obsession Collection

When metallic lipsticks came into the scene again last year, I wasn’t sold. And even when Colourpop and Colourette were really making it easy to own a metallic lippie by dropping their prices really low for these, I still couldn’t bring myself to find it appealing. It was just too loud and shiny, and a bit tacky for my taste. I didn’t want to walk around looking like I ate lechon and had greasy lips left to tell the truth.

So when I received this in my mail, I was kind of skeptical at first...

Pastel pink shoes philippines

Heads up, sneaker heads! Pastel pink is the trending color for trainers and sneakers of every material. Be it leather or canvas, the blushed pink fever is making these pairs fly off the shelves. These sneakers have converted me from the wedges and heels-lovin’ girl that I am to someone who would opt for her sneakers for work! I have been on the lookout for the best sneakers and trainers in this unapologetic nude shade, and here are the best ones I’ve seen so far:

IN PHOTOS: Yepunonnie K-Beauty Event

I don’t have a lot to say about this event. The organizers were terrible hosts, and the only reason I’m posting this is so that I would feel that I didn’t waste an evening and uber fare for nil. I am happy to have spent the night with my friends, though! I met new ones, too, and we spent the night at Sweet Ecstasy, trying to makeup for the sorry event that this turned out to be.

Don’t you just love it when you’re makeup works just as hard as you?

The highly anticipated Philippine launch of L’Oreal’s newest line of long-wearing #NeverFail makeup called INFALLIBLE marks our farewell to makeup meltdown! The lasting power of these products are crazy, and we were able to road-test them last Wednesday over a 30-minute workout, cocktails, and a quick shoot, to see just how well it fights fading, sweat, and food.

5 Things You Need to Know Before Getting Gel Nail Polish

I was clueless about the miracle that was Gel nail polish until about two months ago, when I started planning for our annual company Christmas party. It was also very fortunate for me to find that a local salon near my place offers a promo for an ORLY Gel Mani-Pedi for only Php 600. Normally, other salons offer it at Php 600 for a gel mani, or a gel pedi, but never both. I couldn’t pass up on the chance to finally try it out, and so I did!

For those asking which salon this was, it’s called Cre8...

REVIEW: Mauve Hair by Azta Urban Salon

Last December 27, just a day after the long Christmas break started, I visited Azta for another hair coloring session. It’s always fun to have my hair colored at Azta. I had pink hair then, and the roots were already getting too long for comfort. For that particular hair coloring session, we chose to go with the Mauve hair color, a newly introduced color in their Funky Shades line.

To be honest, I was really scared to try it out. I loved my pink hair...

Turning Playtime ON with OFF! Lotion

If there’s one thing the Philippines was known for being champ, it’s having the first ever recorded dengue epidemic on the world. This isn’t exactly anything to be proud of, and even in more recent years, we have been consistently on the top 10 countries harboring the highest number of dengue cases worldwide. This would explain just how much mothers are overprotective with their children when it comes to mosquito bites during outdoor playtime.

Small but terrible

The concern, however, is not lim...

2016 In Review

While most people spend their time meditating and planning during the last few days of the year as a form of reflection, I choose to write my year-end essay. It’s something I always look forward to before the year ends, to help me remember the good things that happened as the year comes to an end, and start the new year with gratitude and positivity in my heart.

Some of the highlights of my year were spent with teammates, people I consider friends now...
