Let’s face it: we all indulge in the occasional all-nighters and sleeping less than the prescribed amount from time to time.

If you’re part of the LP squad (read: Laging Puyat), then you have to know these three easy steps to banish your dark secrets. These are temporary fixes, though, but it gets the job done!

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...

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.

Tis the Season to be SEPHORA Glammin’

There are so many reasons to love Christmas — aside from the warm feelings that come from this season of love and gift-giving, Christmas celebrations are plenty as well! I personally enjoy themed parties — it gives me the freedom to glam up and dress up with my friends. Of course, there’s also the 13th month pay, which allows me to splurge a little on makeup when I normally wouldn’t if it were another month of the year.

Inspired by hours of window shopping on Sephora...

REVIEW: Matte in Detail Liquid Lipstick in Samantha

With the rise of the Kylie Jenner lip kits, it was a blessing that a lot of liquid lippies came out in the market — most of which are more affordable, and some maybe of even better quality than Kylie Jenner’s. I was looking to try one a few weeks ago when I found a friend destashing some of her makeup. When I saw that she was giving away her Matte in Detail Liquid Lipstick, I just knew I had to get it!

REVIEW: Real Techniques Makeup Brushes on Sephora.ph

I’ve been dying to buy Real Technique brushes on Sephora.ph for the longest time now, but it was a tough choice between these famed brushes and some less expensive brushes I’ve also been considering for weeks now! But life is short, so I went ahead and bought the brushes! These were my first brushes from Real Techniques, and by the looks of things, this definitely won’t be my last!

REVIEW: Banila Co Fall in Seoul Kiss Collector Moisture Lipstick in Bukchon / Burgundy

Hi ladies! Today, I’ll be reviewing one of my all-time fave lippies from Korean brand, Banila Co. I fell in love with this shade and lipstick at first sight during the Banila Co launch last November. During the launch, I made up my mind to try only one shade of lippie, and I was just lucky to pick the one lippie that I really liked, so I wore it for the rest of the day, and decided to purchase a week after my discovery...

Disclaimer: I work for Pili Beauty / Elemie Naturals.

Let me start of by saying that I’ve completely fallen in love with this brand. You might find this hard to believe, given the disclaimer I’ve added at the start of this blog post, but it’s true. I’ve been using their products for two months now, and I’m looking forward to collecting all the shades of their Lip and Cheek Tint. But before any talk of that, let me share with you a short introduction to the brand.
