REVIEW: Matte in Detail Liquid Lipstick in Samantha

liquid lipstick philippines

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!

Detail Make Over is a proudly-Pinoy brand that takes pride in creating high-quality, cruelty...

real techniques philippines makeup brushes review

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!

nori sushi burrito manila kapitolyo

The rise of the Sushirrito in the West has inspired many local restaurants to create their very own version of the famous dish. After all, combining the sushi and the burrito, just two of our favorite dishes ever — no one can possibly mess that up, right?

So after months of being on the receiving end of expertly-targeted Facebook ads as well as various recommendations from blogger friends, I decided one day to give into the craving and drop by Nori for my first ever Sushirrito experience...

REVIEW: Brick Burger (Hampton Gardens Arcade, Pasig City)

I’ve always been fascinated with legos. Back when I was young, I used to have a tub full of legos and spent hours building lego creations, like building, vehicles, aircrafts, and whatever I could conjure with my imagination. Legos have since evolved from simple blocks to lego replicas of popular characters, making it even more fun to create lego dioramas! Seeing lego diorama displays at Brick Burger was the first thing that reeled me into new burger joint a few blocks away from my home.

REVIEW: Sunnies Cafe (BGC High Street, Taguig)

Every brekkie (breakfast junkie lol!) has probably caught wind of the newly opened Sunnies Cafe at BGC High Street.

Innisfree’s lipsticks were one of the makeup items on Althea that quickly caught my attention. It has garnered a high rating of 4.5 stars on the shopping platform, and looks extremely classy to boot!

REVIEW: Organique Acai Premium Blend

organique acai berry juice drink philippines review

I was completely unfamiliar with Acai Berry until two months ago when a fellow blogger introduced the drink to me. Upon finding out that one bottle of Organique Acai costs Php 2500 in Watsons and Mercury Drug outlets, I was shocked and have psyched myself to expect that I won’t like it to much (When a drink is THAT expensive, trust me, you don’t want to like it. It’s going to burn a hole through your wallet...
