On Simple Days Like Today....

Out of the 7 days of the week, I stay in Kyle's school every morning for 3 full hours around 3-4 days!  And the waiting area is right outside the school minus the shade.  

The first few months, I was too busy worrying about keeping myself sane waiting for 3 full hours outside the school (series marathon anyone?), I did apply body sunblock but didn't wear anything on my face because I'm just too lazy, tired and sleepy to do so!  Then I attended an event and saw a Media friend whom I haven't seen in a while and she said: "Nikki, did you recently go to a beach?  Your face looks a bit darker!"

OH NO!!!

That's when I realized how important it is, REALLY important, for me not to skip my daily sun defense even on days I don't feel like I need to prettify myself.  Because Sun Protection is not just a "beauty thing".  And it was perfect timing when I received a gift from The Body Shop Philippines.

Parang sinasabihan talaga ako nito!

New from The Body Shop, well, not so new now since it took me almost emptying both tubes to review these.

Lifeford Hi- Precise Eye Pen Review (Black and Brown)

I will never get tired of reviewing eyeliners!  Why?  Well, aside from the fact that this is my daily staple, it is quite exciting for me to review because I sometimes ended up with smudged liner whenever I go out with family!  (Because I usually do eyeliner testing on weekends because...they won't judge me! hahahaha)

I recently got 2 liners from a good friend Sydney of Nippon Esthetic and she told me how much she loved these liners!  I was assured these are smudge and smear-proof and of course, I knew I have to test these babies myself which took me months!  

Because I'm "OC" like that.

Shades reviewed --- Black and Brown
The Lifeford Hi-precise Eye Pen Eyeliner is housed in a pen-type packaging with a sharp tip brush.  Reading through description, I expect these to be quick-drying, stain resistant, long-lasting, smear and smudge-proof.  Too much to ask for a less than Php500.00 liner you say?  Well, I seriously wasn't expecting much, just applied a good amount ONE weekend and crossed my fingers praying it won't make me look like a Panda.

Lifeford Hi- Precise Eye Pen Says ---
Create the perfect winged liner that stays put all day with Lifeford Hi-Precise Eye Pen. The pointed felt tip glides smoothly giving eyes subtle to bold definition. The waterproof formula won’t smear, smudge or clump. 
Made in Japan.

I don't know about you girls but when I have a "good hair day", I am actually confident enough to leave the house even without makeup on!

FitFlop™ Loves Anna Sui Launch

You all know FitFlop™, who doesn't?   But how does FitFlop™ looks like when joined forces with Fashion mash-up master Anna Sui?

This collaboration, FitFlop’s third with Anna Sui, is equal parts magic and logic, mixing playful and pretty with everyday practical.  The collection consists of Ballerina flats and if you ask me, I'd go for the pineapple print ones just to be playful!

The event held last October 7 at FitFlopTM Shangrila Mall branch was star-studded, hosted by Janeena Chan and they also had a contest for some attendees.

Max FactorX Crème Puff Blush in Alluring Rose Review

After almost 10 years of blogging about Beauty, seeing, touching, looking at makeup still excites me!  And the Max Factor Crème Puff Blush is no exception!  

For someone who has sallow (aka "boring" skin), adding a color on my cheek gives me the "life" I deserve!  It's like instant caffeine-fix for my face!  Adding the right flush of color will make me look younger (at times) and more cheerful!

The Max Factor Crème Puff Blush is a lightweight, baked formula blush that contains finely milled, multi-tonal pigments that blend evenly.

And I got myself shade Alluring Rose.
