Clio Kill Cover Conceal-Dation Review

You all know by now how much of a concealer user I am.  Ask me to choose between foundation or concealer, I'd go for the latter!  But what if one brand offers both?

That's the recent discovery from my Club Clio visit at TriNoma mall.  As much as my heart was aiming for the out-of-stock Pro Artist Liquid Concealer, the friendly SA told me that for my particular skin condition (dry), the Kill Cover Conceal-Dation is my perfect bet!

Because the product was in a box with a cute sponge (with casing), I was drawn to it and immediately got one!

Best decision made for the month of June 2017!

The Clio Kill Cover Conceal-Dation comes in 3 shades ---
2-BP Lingerie : Rose Beige for Healthy Glow
3-BY Linen : Yellow-toned Natural Beige that covers up redness.
4-BO Ginger: Vibrant Medium Beige

I actually tested both shade 3 and 4 and chose the latter because when it comes to Korean cosmetics, I always go for the darkest shade!

Something New: Lululun Face Masks

So you all know how much of a mask sheet lover I am!  I have used only a few brands because I have sensitive skin so not all brands work for me!

As you all know, I have been a fan of Leaders Insolution masks and other Korean branded masks, I recently chanced a Japanese Face Mask brand called LULULUN and I am excited to give this brand a try because it has won several Beauty Awards internationally and it has sold over 300 million masks worldwide!

Now, who aren't interested?

  • Pink for Normal Skin
  • Blue for Dry Skin
  • White for those who want to have whiter & brighter skin

I easily loved the Lululun Precious Red Anti-Aging Care line because seriously, it is never too early or too late to start with anti-aging products!

All The Panties You'll Ever Need in ONE Store

Whenever I see some of my old Avon underwear inside my dresser, it reminds me so much of what I've been through living and working in a foreign country as a teacher.  It wasn't just the fact of being alone that's hard, it's doing those simple tasks that seems so easy and convenient back home turns out to be extremely difficult in a foreign land.

Just like buying new sets of underwear!

Going to stores to purchase underwear is as difficult as trying to explain a particular style of haircut that you like.  I remembered getting offered lingerie instead of simple underwear, I remembered sizes given to me were all wrong!  So I ended up going to an Avon display just because I knew their sizes by heart!  Yes, they were affordable, cute for an early-20s and affordable!

Today, hearing about All the Panties You'll Ever Need in One Store made me realize how much of a comfort it is to live in this generation.

For women like me who already knew the brand sizes by heart, all you need to do now is to go online and purchase your favorite panties without having to go through traffic and long explanation to sales ladies!

“When it comes to panties, women should never settle for anything but the best,” shares Jean Reyes, Avon Philippines’ Marketing Director. “And by the best, we mean high-quality pieces that were engineered to meet your specific needs. The problem withfinding such items is—more often than not—you need to make multiple trips to different stores just to find what you’re looking for. And because you’re not allowed to fit panties prior to purchase, there is always that chance of you buying something you’d end up not liking, or not meeting your standards. This is something that we at Avon understand well and that’s why we came up with the Avon Panty Store.”
Just in case Avon's Intimate Apparel is new to you, here are some of my top picks that you may want to look into.

Cool, Breathable and Fun Printed Panties.

CoverGirl + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation Review

To tell you that CoverGirl + Olay collaboration is new to me will be a lie because I knew about ALL CoverGirl products like the back of my hand for more than a decade now!  I did mentioned in the past that one drugstore brand I really got acquainted with even years before I turned into a blogger was CoverGirl.  Blame my favorite 90s model Niki Taylor for that!  (Niki Taylor is a nineties model together with sister Krissy Taylor are both Cover Girl models, Krissy by the way died in rare heart condition #DamiKongAlam)

But fast forward to today, whenever I see new items from the said brand brought me back to so many good makeup memories!  I remembered saving every single centavo of my "summer work money" and allowances to purchase my favorite Cover Girl item!

Back to reality, as soon as I got the new Cover Girl + Olay Simply Ageless 3-in-1 Liquid Foundation, I gave it a test right away and will share my thoughts on this product which I think is a nice daily liquid foundation especially for those who are in their late 20s and above!

Why I Enjoy Visiting Shangrila Mall!

Whenever I have a meeting at Ortigas Area, I am happy whenever client says "Shangrila Mall".  First off, there's a good amount of parking spaces and I can always opt for Valet Parking if I'm lazy (which never happens by the way).  Second, the washrooms are extremely clean and you know how long it takes for me to travel from Manila to Ortigas, a bathroom break is NECESSARY.  Third, the place is quiet so I can easily talk to my clients and even catch up with friends!

During my recent trip at Shangrila Mall, I got even happier when I saw several Japanese-inspired displays!

For the whole month of July, everyone visiting the mall will get the taste of everything Japanese to commemorate the 61st Annual Filipino-Japanese Friendship month.
