SeeSea Dead Sea Minerals for the Body




I'm not sure if you heard about Dead Sea Minerals as a good ingredient for skincare.  I learned so much about them during another brand's launch called Mineral Flowers 8 years ago.  Unfortunately, the brand didn't make it so it was a nice surprise for me to find another brand with the same ingredients that comes from Mother Nature.

SeeSea Dead Sea Minerals

SeeSea Dead Sea Minerals offer a range of high-quality products formulated with Dead Sea minerals and developed in a state of the art laboratory. Powered by its innovative SEESEA Skincare Energizer (SSE) Complex, SeeSea skincare helps restore, renew, and rejuvenate skin suffering from disorders, thanks to its health-promoting Dead Sea minerals combined with powerful plant extracts indigenous to the region. Experience the healing properties of Dead Sea minerals with SeeSea Skincare.

These are more high-end products and after trying out their body-care products, I can understand why.

Php1,660.00

What I like about this product is how it can soothe and smooth the dryness of my hands.  I had issues recently with my hands and I treated it with medication thus my hands turn dry and wrinkly.  I took immediate action and use this every single night before going to bed and I honestly wake up with better looking hands.

Eureka Moment! The Original BeautyBlender is HERE!




8 years ago was the first time I touched the Original Beauty Blender when I was doing a shoot for a make up school I attended.  My foundation application has changed (for both myself and clients).  Through the years, I have this in my KIT and even repurchased this several times even with all the new brands coming in.

The Original will always be the original and mark my words for it!  It feels different and I can tell the difference even when blindfolded!

8 years after, imagine the happiness when The Original Beauty Blender is finally here in Manila?  Guys, not from resellers but officially distributed?  I was able to get 2 and they actually have other shades available!  (if you don't believe me, check out BeautyMNL!)

Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon Review




Wow, a Brow Crayon?  A jumbo brow crayon?  I find it a bit challenging for a first-timer to use a brow pencil I can't imagine using something as big as this crayon (shown on photo below).  Why and how will this work out?

I, the ultimate beauty product tester gave the newest Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon a try.  Yes, you'll hear it from me (I mean READ), it is difficult, weird for first few tries, but it's quite nice as the effect is like no other.  

Intrigued?  Read on please!

MAC Here Comes Joy...




I don't know about you but Highlighters give me the HIGH!
"But I can't see it when applied!" 
That's the beauty of highlighting products, you aren't supposed to see them but it lifts your face like no other!  And I recently found it in a Limited Edition product called MAC Opalescent Highlighter (From MAC Snow Ball Holiday 2017 Collection).

Thanks to my sister-in-law for gifting me this!  The packaging itself is already a gift!  If you look at it closely, it indeed look like you're holding a bunch of snow!  The muted gold packaging is actually smooth but the texture looks like a crumbled foil!  I love it!  No amount of photography can show you how great it looks, you have to touch them ad see them in person.

My sister-in-law gifted me 2 and one is lighter in color, I can't accept it in my heart to get 2 compacts so I actually returned one for her and asked her to use it instead!

Let's talk about the shade I picked for myself -  HERE COMES JOY

CLIO Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner review




I remembered the time colored pencils were a thing in the Blogosphere.  Everyone wanted the most colorful liners!  I remembered hoarding from brands like NYX, Urban Decay (247) then Make Up For Ever!

The love for colored liners died down for the past years and I found myself opting for the subtle ones --- blacks, browns, grays and beige!  

Then the Korean craze arrived our shores and the colors are coming back!  As much as I used to love colored liners, I feel most of them don't last and tends to smudge!  So thankfully, I found an alternative!  The brand that came from where else?  K-pop land!  The CLIO Gelpresso liners are not only eyeliner pencil pens --- they are GEL in a Pencil Liner format!
