BeachBorn PiggyLash Review

"Use Castor Oil ma'am!"
"Ma'am, iksi ng lashes mo, try mo Castor Oil."

I've heard those lines gazillion times, I always ask "Where to buy?" and ended up with answers like "Sa Mercury lang!" and I never bought one.

I guess it's the fact that it is housed in bottle and the thought of putting "oil" on my lashes.  Seriously: "Seryoso ka ba? Masakit yon for sure!"  was on top of my head.  You know me, I love beauty but I love myself more!  Why would I torture myself right? :P

So when I got myself a BeachBorn PiggyLash named so cute plus housed in a bottle that looks like a makeup and skincare product!  Why not?

I used it right away and fast forward to today, it has been a month already!

A product inspired by The Muppets resident vamp, Ms. Piggy.
Caster Oil is an age old beauty treatment that has been proven to stimulate hair growth by up to 5x more.
We've infused our cold processed and cold pressed caster oil with Vitamin E for an added boost.  Apply daily before bedtime for lush brows and lashes.

Can you spot the difference?
Eyes lifted, undereye darkness diminished.  And the best part is, this concealer costs Php200.00 only and I purchased this online and it gets shipped straight to my doorstep!

This concealer arrived together with the rest of my #AltheaMakeup and yet, this won a lot of votes from AMW friens for a full blown review when I tried this on IG stories for the first time.

There are a total of 4 shades to try, my perfect shade would be the 3rd shade called Honey.

I was inspired to do a Lace nail art design (which I have done many years ago) when I saw these 2 shades of Happy Skin x Posh Nails Express Gel Polish.  February maybe a month of LOVE and you're probably expecting hearts after hearts!  Not this time!  Lace are romantic too you know! *winks*

There are a total of 4 shades in the collection and I got 2 to work with - TLC and Lush.

Applied 2 coats of TLC as shown on photo below and let dry

IT COSMETICS Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF50+ Review

I've heard so many great reviews about IT Cosmetics from my favorite international Beauty Bloggers ad Vloggers.  As much as I wanted to give them a try, it wasn't locally available (such a bummer)!  Thankfully, one of my favorite online beauty shopping site SEPHORA PH is carrying IT Cosmetics and I was able to give this a test right away!

The weather for the past few weeks was perfect to test out base makeup products.  It is very cool in the morning and extremely hot and sunny by lunch time onwards.  

If you wonder how unnatural most base makeup look on you, take a look at this photo as I am wearing NOTHING except clothes *laughs* and IT Cosmetis CC+ cream!  (Mind you, in very thin layer!)

How do you like it?

Shiseido ColorGel LipBalm Review

Have you found a lipbalm that you can actually use and can actually hydrate your lips?
Well, I kind of found one accidentally when I wasn't looking.  I picked this up recently because it says ColorGel lipbalm and you know how I love "gel" texture in anything (ex. Moisturizing, etc...)  

The shade I got was a bit dark on tube but I knew this is a lipbalm so I understood this will be sheer.

Shiseido ColorGel LipBalm
Shade: 110 Juniper

This lightweight-yet-hydrating balm melds seamlessly with lips thanks to high- and low-melting point waxes that provide the perfect amount of structure and slip.Infused with patented humectant technology, this balm-lipstick hybrid offers lasting moisture and comfort—leaving lips feeling softer and healthier with every use.Available in 10 shades inspired by nature indigenous to Japan, this nourishing formula boasts semi-sheer coverage, and a delicate, shiny finish.Dermatologist-tested.
