Cream Silk's Customized Solution + My New Hair Color

I color my hair "as long as I can remember".  
From boxed color treatment to having it done professionally at salons.  Given the chance that my hair could talk, well..let's not go there.

BUT, in my defense, I take care of my hair dearly!  I use conditioner on a daily basis and use hair treatment at least twice a week.  

So imagine just how many tubes of conditioners I use up in a month?

That's why I was squealing with joy when I received Cream Silk's newest range called Customized Solutions.  I noticed that they also changed their packaging with more "relate-able" models as they are our country's well-known personalities (Heart Evangelista, Coleen Garcia, Nadine Lustre, Pia Wurtzbach, Yassi Pressman, Julie Anne San Jose, and Rachelle Ann Go.)

The 7 customized solutions covers all Filipinas' Hair Needs, from Standout Straight to Hair Fall Defense, Damage Control, Stunning Shine, Dry Rescue, Dandruff-Free and Color Protect. 

I'm sure like me,  you probably wanted to try ALL variants.

But since I color my hair a lot!  And I recently had my hair "Balayage-d" at HairShaft Salon, Podium, Fred Penales went all out with Ash tone Balayage.  My hair is extremely light with all shades of Ash and I can imagine my hair getting dry in a week's time!  SO I'm definitely arming myself with Color Protect Conditioner from Cream Silk and so far, the experience was wonderful!

My Second Nomination Composable Bracelet

If you follow me on Instagram and #AMWIgStories , you've probably seen me and fellow mommy Jackie picked our Nomination Composable Bracelets last May to celebrate Mother's Day.

After using it for 3 full months, I knew a second one won't hurt because I just love it so much!

I went for their newest collection called Bella La Vita (Life is Beautiful).  This is a special edition 30 years bracelet in steel and I love it that it comes with my favorite jewelry shade Rose Gold!
"Original Composable Classic bracelet in stainless steel with coloured PVD 9K rose gold finish and "Bella la Vita" Double Charm. Medium size: 17 cm. Available in 3 variants. Special Packaging. Made in Italy. This precious Made in Italy jewellery celebrates our 30th anniversary. The “Bella la Vita” bracelet, dedicated to those who, like us, believe that life is beautiful!"

To celebrate my beautiful life, I just added 2 butterfly dangling charms also in Rose Gold because it signifies how I mature to be a butterfly soaring high, chasing after one dream at a time!

Tarte Tarteist Review

How does it feel to hold the most coveted Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow?
All thanks to my good friend Jheng for gifting me this because this palette deserves a shoutout and lots of "whistling" for being wonderful in terms of giving me the sculpt and glow that I want (and need!)

So pretty I can even skip applying face powder!

"A highlight and contour palette with six pigmented powder and cream shades to create perfectly glowing, chiseled looks on every skin tone." 
This product is housed in a velvety black cardboard palette.  I like the feel but I actually felt it gets dirtied up quite easily so I tend to put it back in the box after EVERY use (which is a hassle by the way).

If you are a long-time AMW reader, you should know by now that one skincare brand I really love is Clinique!  I've said it before and will be saying it again and again that I may have tried so many skincare brands in the market (for the sake of review) but one brand that really healed my dry skin issues is Clinique!

So when I learned that one of my favorite skincare and makeup brand Clinique collaborated with Jonathan Adler (A potter, designer and author), I knew the brand will be coming up with something colorful, exciting and luxurious.

After seeing the collection in the flesh in one of the Clinique stores recently, I knew I have to share the details with you!

Part of the CLINIQUE x JONATHAN ADLER Collection are the following:

Solique X Agoo Collection Launch

I've been Blogging about Beauty for almost a decade now so I definitely have a couple of "Local Beauty Icons" I look up to!  One of them is none other than Ms. Agoo Bengzon.  

I've seen Agoo in several events I've attended but never gotten the chance to talk to her because she's always surrounded by people.  She is a former beauty editor and is a beauty industry vet.  So whenever I see her, I just appreciate her elegance, her fashion and her gorgeous digits!  (Seriously, she's got one of the best looking hands!)  

So it wasn't a surprise for me when a good friend, owner of Girlstuff and Solique Gel Polish Ms. Janina Gutierrez-Tan told me about the Solique x Agoo collaboration.  

It took a while, I was a bit impatient (ako pa talaga!)  but it was because I was too excited to know what the Beauty Guru has in store for us and guess what?  The wait is definitely WORTH it!

Introducing, the limited-edition collection for Solique available this August ---

Solique x Agoo Gel Polish by Girlstuff
Shades: Smitten, Posse and Cloud (L-R)

That's me with Ms. Agoo Bengzon, one of the most humble "It Girl" I know!  Seriously, I enjoy talking to her because this girl does not only exude grace and beauty, she definitely has the love and passion for everything she does which makes her such an inspiration to everyone!
