BLK All-day intense Matte Lipsticks review

So, I'm kind of late in the BLK All-Day Intense Matte Lipsticks game.

The brand released newer "All That Feels" recently (which I missed due to my Dad's situation), but hey!  Better late than never right?

So I realized I have 3 Intense Matte Lipsticks (and I have another 3 Velvet ones to be posted soon).  And guess what?  Not bad for a Matte Lipstick because they look good on my dry lips!

Meet your matte. Think intense color at first swipe, a true matte finish-zero sheen, just all-out boldness-and a non-drying, all-day wear. Our winning formula, which is enriched with Vitamin E and camellia oil, moves comfortably with your lips, never caking or feathering as you go from day to night. 
Active Ingredient: Vitamin E/Camelia Oil

Price: Php299.00 a piece

Versatile Outfit For Busy Moms

It was a Holiday in the Philippines but it is a "working Holiday" for me.
I need to take my son to his Speech School and leave for a meeting for lunch.

From Tomas Morato, I am flying to SM Aura for a Korean Cosmetics launch (Welcome The Saem!), then I have a scheduled Brow Wax session at Benefit then leave the rest of my schedule for family!

I don't tediously plan my outfit but I roughly have an idea what to wear before I go to sleep!  I wanted something comfortable where I can move around at the same time, chic enough for meetings!

Here's my ensemble!
Culottes Onesie (got this on Sale from Shop Thrift Shop Fishermall)
Bag: Zalora

I have the say, the material of this one piece culottes is so comfortable yet it works even for professional setting!  The only complaint?  I need a bit of time inside the washroom as I need to remove the ribbon tied at the back of my neck, the ribbon on the waist and a zipper!  But once you went back and forth the washroom for 2-3 times, you'll get the hang of it!  *laughs*

I have to sing praises to my newest and comfiest pair of Alberto Shoes!  I usually bring with me a flats to change in between meetings and work but for this particular pair, I was able to survive 9:00am-10:00pm wear!  Seriously, I even ran around chasing my son inside the SM Aura mall and my feet did not die!

Peel and Polish by Petra Skintreats Review


*runs on the other side and hides*

I am always scared of skincare that seems to treat my skin harshly, because, is there peeling that is safe?

Thankfully, there are!  Brands nowadays are coming up with products that are safe even for sensitive skin users like me!

I started using Peel & Polish after trying out other Pixi Skintreats products and found no negative reactions to it.  So can I just say, this was the last product I took the courage to try!  

"This radiance revealing enzyme peel resurfaces for smoother, softer skin, and a healthy looking glow.  Natural fruit enzymes loosen dead skins cells, lactic acid gently exfoliates, cellulose peels & sugar extracts polishes, lifting away dullness revealing brighter skin.  Professional salon peel treatment without leaving home suited on all skin types and is not tested on animals, Paraben-Free."

Kanebo's Cute New Blush - A Mono Blush

Why Kanebo?  Why do you do this to us consumers?  I can't stop staring at the newest Mono Blush from the brand!  

These are the so-called BOUNCY Blush in a cube and I can't wait to share the packaging, the swatch and of course, how it appears on my cheeks!

You Pick Your Summer Romance!

And no, I'm not talking about a pick between your colleague, your neighbor or maybe that guy you met at the coffee shop....

We're talking about Romance between YOU and Your nails!

Girlstuff Nail Polish - one of my favorite safe polish brand recently launched their Summer 2018 collection!  Just when I thought it just look like the usual "ho-hum" bright, summer colors...this totally blew my mind!

Php750.00 for the whole set
Available HERE or any Girlstuff Counters near you

Just so you know, PHOTOS do not do justice!  You have to check the collection IN PERSON to understand what I'm trying to say!

This collection speaks to the Summer homebody (me!), the beach babes (I wish that's me but not for this year!), the summer nerds (me pa din!) , in short, this collection speaks SUMMER FOR ALL AGES and for ALL PERSONALITIES!

Beach Babe
At first glance this may look like a teal-colored polish but applied on me, it looks Pastel Mint Green!  I love how the color changes in different individuals!  I love how refreshing this color made me feel!
