Something New: Charm Double Duty Makeup Brush Set

How many brush sets do I really need?
If you're Nikki Tiu, A LOT!
I'm OC when it comes to my client so I always bring at as many brushes as I can especially on a Bridal Gigs.  Why?  Because I'm too in a hurry to clean my brushes on spot so I'd rather use a clean brush instead on each client!  

On a negative side, since I bring almost ALL the brushes I own on a gig, I don't have good brushes left for myself!  Can you believe that???

When I got the Charm Essentials Vegan Brush Set, I finally have a set I call MY OWN!  I even brought the set with me when I traveled to the US early this year.  And because I like giving and I enjoy making other people happy!  I ended up giving my personal brush set to Keith's cousin who has been such a gracious host when we visited them in L.A.!  I didn't know she was into makeup (thus I didn't prepare Kikay gift) but upon peeking inside the room and saw that she uses mineral makeup, an idea crossed that the Vegan Brush Set would be a perfect match for her mineral makeup!

It is true when they say, when you are into giving, God will definitely give you something in return.  And the turnover was quite fast!  During our Splash Of Summer Party (all thanks to my Sampleroom family), each of us received goody bag and what made me squeal?  The Charm Double Duty Makeup Brush Set!

The set looks like this!  Sorry for the ruined box as it was squashed inside a lootbag filled with loads of products!

TADAH!  No matter how much brush sets I own, this made my heart flutter!

AMW Bulletin: The Important of Smile and a Healthy Smile!

Smiling is second nature to me.  A lot of my friends and family told me that I am one crazy "smiling-machine" as you see me smile in all situations!

I smile so much I don't know why I'm smiling in this photo taken by a photographer in an event.

When I worry about something, I usually put up a brave face with a smile as I find it helps radiate positivity thus lessening my stress hormones!  *lol*

AMW Reviews: Baby Care Plus+

Baby bath care could be expensive!  If you're on a budget, I understand you are probably on a hunt for good, affordable baby bath care that is "hiyang" to your baby!

I actually found one that works so well on Baby AMW I'm excited to share to mommy readers out there!  You definitely have more options to choose from when it comes to taking care of our baby's skin!

Baby Care Plus+ Baby Bath

Baby Care Plus+ says ---
Baby Care Plus+ baby bath and soap contain Lamesoft Skin Protector, which forms a natural barrier around the skin that protects while cleansing. Baby Care Plus+ baby soap also contains olive oil extracts for softer, smoother skin!

Net Weight: 300ml

AMW Reports: Don't Retouch Me, Instablur Me!

If you live in  Metro Manila, you probably shared my sentiments on how crazy it was last week!  I am not wasting the space here to complain about power shortage because I'm glad our family is safe and sound!  And thankfully Baby AMW has been such a wonderful baby we survived 4 days blackout with a small USB fan!   

I'm glad I need to be at SM Mall of Asia last Saturday for a makeup workshop or else, I will be cancelling out on the event from The Body Shop!  I wasn't feeling well that day due to stress and no sleep but God is good, He made sure to find ways to tell me He loves me and He's always looking after me, how?

By telling me I am still beautiful no matter how puffy my eyes look via The Body Shop "Say Yes to Natural Beauty" #noretouchtbsph campaign.

 Let's rewind to the star of that day!  The Instablur Make-Up Primer!  The "primer world" has been hush hush for months and I'm excited something new is here!  What do we expect from the TBS Instablur?

Initial Thoughts on: Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush and Foaming Cleanser

If you're a Beauty Blogger, you probably heard about Clarisonic and you probably own one or wanted one at least once in your entire blogging career!

I was one of them!  But luckily, I got a Skinsonic Skincare System  which I used and loved for almost a year!  In case you're wondering, no, it didn't die on me but it went through a horrible accident!  Our house help dropped it (hopefully unintentionally) and it died in an instant!  Can't blame Skinsonic, it was at least 4 feet high!

For the remaining months, I learned to rely on My Konjac Sponge for twice a week exfoliation and so far, my skin can manage without this high-tech electronic gadget.

Recently, I received a Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush kit and boy oh boy was I excited to use it!  I immediately used it and have been using it for the past 2 weeks!  So here I am sharing my initial thoughts!

Are you ready?

Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush and Foaming Cleanser
Cleansing Brush: Php2,390.00 (approx $56.90)

The cleansing brush kit includes the ff:
2x. AA Battery
2 Brush Heads

The box states that cleansing by hand is not enough especially if you wear makeup!  With the Mary Kay Cleansing Brush, you remove makeup 85% better than cleansing by hand and you can help boost the absorption of your next skin care step (toner, moisturizer).  Aside from those mentioned above, this brush provides deep cleansing, gentle exfoliation and massaging in one easy step!  You will see the appearance of your skin to start improving immediately after use as it helps polish away the look of past skin damage for a more even-looking complexion.
