Makeup World Cheek and Lip Tint Review

Makeup World has been around for quite some time and I am so lucky they also sponsors AMW Workshop Series!  Because of the testers I get to test before using them on my workshops, I get to see how inexpensive products can still DELIVER!

I recently chanced upon their newest product for the Cheeks and Lips!  This is the Makeup World Cheek and Lip Tint --- simple as that!

Weekend Food Trip at: Rackshack, SM Aura

When you pass by a restaurant in the middle of the afternoon and you see it packed with people dining, you'd want to give it a try too right?

Well, that's for our case!  Whether it's 2pm or 3pm or even at weird hours like 4pm!  Whenever we see a new restaurant packed with happy customers, we just had to go in --- it's exactly like me seeing a new collection of makeup displayed!  

I had a quick work  stint at SM Aura and I had Kyle, Mr. AMW with me!  They waited for me at the toy store and what to do after we reunited?  Bond over food!

Rackshack has been around for quite some time and I've seen some posts on Instagram.  Whenever you see a pile of different BBQ sauces piled right on the table, you know you'll find something you like for sure!

First off, we weren't that hungry so we've decided to try the basics ---

Judging The Body Shop National Make-Up Competition 2018

You know you're doing something right in your career as a Make-Up Artist and Trainer if you are invited by a  prestigious make-up company such as The Body Shop to judge their National Make-Up Competition!  I knew it is something I would love to be part of because The Body Shop (as a brand) is very close to me because of the following reasons ---

  • They are the first International Brand who reached out to me when I was just starting out on Blogging end of 2007.
  • I love their makeup and skincare products and have been using them.
  • They are FOREVER Against Animal Testing!
The list could go on and on but let me tell you a bit of what happened during the day of the competition.

The event was held at Pound by Todd English, SM Megamall Branch.  It is a perfect venue for such competition because the space is just right for an intimate gathering.  Best of all, the place is "open" so ample amount of sunlight peeks through these wire-like walls!

Lioele Carry Me Blusher Review

If you want to literally "CARRY" a blusher, here's the best packaging for it!

But before I talk about this blusher, can we first talk about LIOELE?

Who remembers the brand?  *Raises hand*  This brand brought me back to so much good 'ol Beauty Blogging memories!  I used to stalk Ebay for Lioele makeup products because Jen of From Head to Toe has been using this brand!

So one Lioele item that I really purchased and used to the last drop is the Lioele Beyond The Solution BB Cream (linking this made me teary-eyed, I didn't have Kyle back then and I'm still living in my parents-in-law's house!)

Back to the review, when the brand reached out to me to try their products, I immediately felt happy because I knew the brand is coming back!  I mean, they have been quiet for the longest time!  AndI am a big fan of supporting brands that I grew up with --- I mean in the makeup sense. 

So are you ready for my first Lioele product to be featured after almost a decade?

Nail Art Tutorial: Bridal-Inspired Nails

When I received my very own Bella Donna Box from TenTen Nail, I knew I had the next nail art tutorial in mind!  A very simple Bridal-Inspired nail art that I can wear even on my own wedding day!  (I had a white base too on my wedding day and a lot of colorful flowers on it!)

IF, I get married today, I'll go for the more simple route and this is my finished product.
