AskMeMom: What's My #MeTime with my Crazy Schedule?



Drinking a good cup of coffee while watching my favorite Koreanovelas and my favorite Beauty Bloggers on YouTube!


Ever since Kyle goes to Summer School, I finish up my monthly data allowance so quickly I always find myself subscribing to additional packages via My Smart (app) and my favorite package?

"Giga Surf 99 which gives me 1.5GB of data with FREE 300mb of Spinnr, iFlix, YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo and Dubsmash for Php99.00 for 7 days."
And just when I thought this plan was the perfect plan for me as I wait for my Monthly Data allowance to refresh, Smart Prepaid, together with TNT and Sun Prepaid have exclusive promo this month and I have to share it to you because it is one of my favorite offer!!!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
 

Jordana Made To Last Eyeshadow Primer Review




So I personally do not use Eyeshadow Primers on a daily basis but whenever I attend events or go out for long periods of time, I make sure to apply a thin layer of any eyeshadow primer of choice (whichever I have to review).  I have been very vocal about my drugstore favorite Etude House Proof 10 Eyeshadow Primer and recently, I've been testing the Jordana Made to Last Eyeshadow Primer in 01 Nude which actually reminds me so much of the Etude House one.

Housed in a tiny lipgloss-type of tube, I actually like the squeeze-type packaging of all because I can easily control the amount of product to be dispensed.

Jordana Made To Last Eyeshadow Primer Says ---

Intensifies any eyeshadow color
Prevents creasing and fading
Easy blending for a pro look
Made in USA

Club Clio Store and My Picks!



Hi AMW friends!  You've probably heard, read or even seen Club Clio and here I am, just getting really excited and talking about it!  I'm too late guys!  But better late than never for sure!

I was actually there at the launch of Club Clio but something important came up, I had to head to my mom to take care of her so I've decided to forego the store visit and it finally happened last week!  All thanks to Club Clio PH team for inviting me and for giving me a special store access!

And because I was toured by Angel, I will share to you what I learned about the store and the brands.

Located at 3rd Level, TriNoma, CLUB CLIO houses 3 brands --- Goodal, Peripera and Clio.

Once you enter the store, you'll see at least 4 displays of Goodal products.  Goodal is a clean and natural skincare line and as we all know, Koreans believe in taking care of the skin as top priority.

AMW suggests:
Green Tangerine line for intense hydration.  This line is perfect for those who have dry skin.
Keratin Care for anti-aging.
Premium line, go for Pearl Tone-Up Cream for that intense anti-aging + whitening.

Eureka Moment: Pro Studio Beauty Exclusives Miracle Sponge Set with Case (8 Pack)





I have been watching Korean Youtube Gurus like Jungsaemmool and I remembered wanting this huge sponges she used on her tutorials!

Eureka moment indeed when the Pro Studio Beauty Exclusives Miracle Sponge Set (8 pack) Php550.00 (on sale at BeautyMNL.com for Php440.00) in pastel shades landed on my table one day!

It comes in a Pentagon Shaped sponge, quite thick and very dense.  I immediately picked one and used one on my client and on myself!

What made me love this even more is the fact that it comes with its' own container, so doing some research, they sell 20pcs pack (all white) for Php200.00 making it a nice way for me to just repurchase a refill and put all these cute sponges free from dirt on this clear plastic container.

Benefit GALifornia Review



One of the most requested "powdered blush product" for the year 2017 is none other than --- Benefit's Galifornia Box O' Powder Blush!

What sold me from giving in to Galifornia?  Well, aside from the fact that I'm singing "GALIFORNIA Girls we're unforgettable, Daisy Dukes bikinis on top.." (sing to the tune of Katy Perry's California Girls.)  Seriously, the song does not go away!  It just gets more intense as I use this blush every single day.

Now back to another reason why I cave in!  According to Benefit Cosmetics, Galifornia is a Sweep of Sunshine --- who doesn't like that?

And I actually own almost ALL of the Benefit's Box O' Powders and I have to say, this is my favorite box design to date!

The signature GALifornia Dreamin’ scent features notes of pink grapefruit & vanilla. Comes complete with a custom rounded blush brush for soft, diffused application."
