Picks of the Month

Finally I have something to share in my monthly favourites. Though it’s not massive ( because I’ve been MIA) it’s totally gratifying for me to share something that I love that is worth the buy and hoping that you’ll get to remember me if ever you pass by stores and sees them and know that it’s been Chubbychicsdiary approved!

Okay, let’s start with the new and I have three.

Bellic Peel and Glow Brightening Soap- I’l be honest guys. This soap and I didn’t get a good start. I put fault on me being drastic on my shifting to brands that I didn’t give justice to this but now I’m happy that I could finally give credit to where it is due. It helped me a lot in maintaining my skin (at least) pimple free. And what I loved most is that it gave my face that youthful glow. For further information about this product, see my review.

Ovale Tomato Mask

Tomato based skin care products have been proven and tested in giving my skin good results. In fact I always look for them whenever I’m on a skincare aisle. So when I saw this new brand from Ovale (and it’s Tomato!) I didn’t waste my chances. It really helped in giving my face that . What I love most about this product is that it’s super affordable. I could use one pack for a good seven times.

Ovale Whitening Facial Lotion (Aloe Vera)

You always get tempted to try a product specially if it’s new. Even if you don’t have any idea what will become after not minding how much you spent. Hey! It’s experience that counts anyway. How will you know if you wouldn’t try?

This is my mindset whenever I see something new along the cosmetic aisle or even in supermarkets for that matter. Well, good if I got to discover that is worth the buy. And this is my experience with Ovale Facial Lotion. I’m looking for a substitute because at that time my facial lotion is failing me.

I’ve been using Ovale for a month now and suprisingly it did the job. I specifically choose whitening stuff for my face because I easily get tan whenever I go out.

How about we shift to something famous?

Cosrx Centella Water Alcohol-free Toner

This is my first introduction to the famous CosRx specifically known for healing acne troubled skin. I have seen it for awhile but inhibits me to try price wise. I have incorporated this toner in my night skincare regime after applying my Ovale Facial Lotion. I used this mainly as a facial mists to lock in moisture and let it dry naturally. What I love about this is that it keeps my face moisturized and looking fresh.

CosRx Centella Blemish Cream

This is what I use after spritzing my face with the toner. It really does prevents my skin from having recurring acne and it dries up pimples easily. I also love that Centella has an anti-aging properties which is a must for me.

Etude House Zero Sebum

I actually got mine in trial packs as a freebie (the special thing on purchasing Korean beauty products 👍) I use this as a primer or lately wear it alone. It helps keep the oil on my face at bay for the whole day.Trial size really helped in determining wether to buy or not also waste of product will be avoided. Definitely will buy a full size mow.

Gatsby Powdered Oil Control Clear Sheet

I having an oily-combination type of skin have a penchant on everything that is oil control. That is why this is my holy grail in combating oiliness. What I love about this oil control sheet is that it’s powdered, meaning to say no retouching of powder for those of you who are too lazy or no time for touchups. I also find it convinient that this sheet is a tad wider than the usual ones in the market ( which reminds me of Mary Kay’s)

add-ons

Nestea Milk Tea (Hokaido and Wintermelon)

I know this isn’t beauty related but that won’t stop me from including this on my favourites list. I know most of you were tea lovers specifically the types of Serenitea and Gong Cha. This would definitely excite you. Very affordable at Php13.00, two packs is already equivalent to a large size of your favourite bubble tea ( unfortunately no pearls included) How about that? The Hokaido variant is ( for me) kinda similar to Serenitea whilst the Wintermelon is very much similar to Gong Cha. The only downside is that it’s only available ( not that I know of) in 7-11 branches which is always out of stock.

There you have it my August picks of the month. I know most of you (specially here in the Philippines) are excited because we’re hitting the ber months already. It seems like only yesterday that we’re bidding adieu to 2016. I guess I’ll be more attentive now on posting my blogs and so happy to be creating more. Till our next favourites guys!

My Bellic Peel and Glow Experience (a review)

I’ve been out of the blogging game for months now. There are few reasons behind the impromptu hiatus and one of this is my battle with hormonal acne. I considered myself one of those lucky teenagers who skipped the “acne period of growing up” Yes, I had smooth skin. I enjoyed it and really took my time taking good care of what I have. I do have skin care regimes suited for my skin and I didn’t abuse it. I sleep well, drank eight glasses of water religiously and ate healthy foods. In return I was given a healthy young looking skin as I grow old.

I’m in my forties now and enjoys the youthful compliments every now and then. But as I come closer then to the big 4-0, I noticed that cystic pimples were slowly emerging. First I woke up with one, then next week two until I realized that some part of my face have troubled acne. Not to mention that my pores are now larger and I even experienced a sudden change of skin type. From oily combo to dry skin. Being in that position now from my 40 years of existence, I lost confidence. I got paranoid. I can’t perpetuate the shame that I felt. I can’t even put up a good skin product review because there’s fear of not being credible with my current situation. So it’s all true, the feelings, the shame. What now? Believe me I have tried many products but I ended up not keeping anything for most doesn’t solve the problem. I’m scared even to put it in the hands of a derma for some personal reasons. Until I just let it be.

Looking back, one of the products that I have tried during that period is the Bellic Peel and Glow Brightening Soap. To be frank it was a love-hate relationship. We really didn’t go along well at first until I ended not using it. But you see I have this weird reactions to new products. I always don’t get the desired results at a first try well not that it’s not effective but maybe i have experienced drastic transition problems or results. So what I always do is give it a rest and then take another shot. Mostly on the second time around are a lot more in their proper place.

And this is now what happeneds to my Bellic soap experience.

Earlier this month that I decided to incorporate this in my new skin care routine after maybe six months. But before I proceed here is a scope of Bellic’s potent ingredients and claims.

Glycolic Acid – exfoliator, anti-aging, lightens skin discoloration, alpha hydroxy acid (aha)

Salicylic Acid – anti-acne, beta hydroxy acid (bha)

Daisy flower extract (Bellis perenis) antiseptic, great alternative for Hydroquinone and Kojic acid in treating hyperpigmentation, lightens skin.

Kojic Acid – known to limit melanin formation.

What to expect when/after using Bellic:

Skin tightening, micro peeling (thus the rough skin texture), lightening of blemishes, drying of pimples.

My Experience

I know for the second time around that I have given justice to this product and very thankful for doing so. What I would usually do is cut the soap in parts like this whole bar is divided into four.SONY DSC It’s priced at Php 66 which some might find a bit pricey in compared to its sister soap. (Yes they’re manufactured by Bevi, the one that broght us the famous Koji-san.) So cutting it in portions is economical since this suds up well. I leave it on my face for a few seconds (concentrating to the pimple infested area) and noticed a slight tingling sensation which is all good for me. ( my sign that it’s actually working) I love that it lathers so fast. A little caution though is that the bar soap dissolves easily. It has a tendency to melt in your soap dish so store it dry. I also noticed the tightening of my skin but not overly drying. Your skin will feel rough or like it’s peeling. This might be drying for those of you who have a dry skin type so it is advised to apply moisturizer after using to avoid irritation.

To wrap things up, Bellic is highly recommended for those of you who are looking for a soap that would help dry up pimples, lighten blemish spots and also with an anti-aging properties. I was truly pleased of what I see now and I could say that my confidence has gained back and kinda learn to accept aging. 👍

*Bellic Peel and Glow Brightening Soap is available in all leading supermarkets nationwide. ( just a reminder that it might be sold out in some leading drugstores) This is based on a personal experience and it’s not sponsored. What works for me might not be the same with you so highly precaution is advised.*

Picks of the Month 

​The summer heat officially kicks in for the month of April and all I can think of is “light” like the airy feeling. Much to my surprise that in this month I have religiously been using makeups. Nothing that you could possibly connect with my current feels, right? So let me elaborate further for better understanding. ✴wink✳

Pond’s Flawless White BB Cream – 

Actually the summer heat is really irritating. So much so that aside from slacking you wouldn’t want to wear anything in your face at all. So we will be ditching foundations for awhile and switch to something lighter like BB Creams. I know there are a lot in the market but my heart was won over by Pond’s because of the whitening ingredient Gen-Activ. So while you are enjoying using the cream, there is no worries of layering multiple products to cover and protect your face. This also has SPF 30 PA++ which is a must in this summer season. 

Ever Bilena Lip and Cheek Stain –  

Though I often used this as a lip tint, this time it’s the other way around. Yes, on the cheeks. I love the moussy/gel type of consistency it has so using it as my go to blush is an easy peasy application. It also helps that it is in tube that you could control the right amount of product to use. Though it’s straight out red tint, it gives just the right amount of flush on the cheeks ( not overpowering) making it look so au naturele. 

KJM Lip and Cheek Tint –  

Yes, another lip tint. I’m pretty sure that you’ve guessed it all right. The formulation of KJM spreads entirely on my lips which separates her to other lip tint that I used. It doesn’t settle in the center only or on the sides but glides just like a Lipstick would cover. The best of all is the longevity this lip tint gives which solves me the entire day.

San San False Effect Mascara- 

 I admit that I totally neglect using mascaras just because the hassle of taking them off but not with this. It has been with me since I featured it in my Collab $20 Makeup Haul Challenge of last year. I must say that it really does the job of giving that false lashes effect. I love that it’s not giving me raccoon eyes unlike other mascaras that claimed to be waterproof. Also, my lashes are soft to touch and not stiff. 

Colorpop Ultra Matte Lipstick in Clueless – 

I chose this to be my summer lipstick because of it’s naturally pink color. Contrary to other liquid Lipstick that I used, Colorpop didn’t dry my lips and is very much lightweight. It’ll really compliments that summer skin glow.

Though this last three products aren’t makeup related it still falls on the light feeling that it gave me. 

Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky Shampoo – 

I never really dare to switch brands. Since Head and Shoulders is the only shampoo that controlled my dandruff and the occasional flakes. So even though I switched, I make sure that just the variant. I know it’s summer and it’s hot but I really love the “smooth and silkyness to touch” feel this shampoo gives. Making me wear my hair down always. Not to mention the sweet smelling fragrance that’s really a need for me now that it’s summer. By the way that scent reminds me of Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea.

Cream Silk Dry Rescue Conditioner – 

I swear this is the only conditioner that resolved the dry ends of my hair. I vow not to look at any other brands again. I also loved this together with Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky equals to a healthy shiny locks. They’re just so good with each other. Oh, I really opted to buy them in sachets because it’s a lot convenient. 

Lastly is my summer quencher.

llao llao Spanish Yogurt – 

Their smoothies with yogurt ice cream on top is just the bomb! Literally craving it everyday. I have tasted many yogurt ice creams before and my high tolerance to sour tastes made me love them so dearly than any other ( I guess ) llao llao ( yao yao) sourness blends so well with everything concocts to it. All ends to a creamy balance that you will get hooked on.

There you have it my April Summer picks which I totally enjoyed for the whole month. See you again on my next monthly picks and see if we have some things in common.

Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream Review

My first encounter with the brand Cathy Doll was during the hype of Thai beauty products here in the Philippines, long before the Korean fad started. It was then that thousands of beauty and skincare products from Thailand are floating on my Instagram feed. The testimonials are really very convincing seeing how Thai women has come about such lovely and flawless skin synonymous to that of a Korean. To think that they also belong to the tropics country of Asia. So when my brother got the chance to visit Thailand, I specifically asked him to buy me a Cathy Doll. In fact I also made a review on one of the products he handed me when he got home. Unfortunately my happiness was cut short when I finished one bottle after the other. You see, though they are abundant on online sites you can’t be so sure that they are legit. Just imagine my happiness when finally after a year Cathy Doll has decided to venture business in the Philippine shores. You won’t be having difficulty anymore of finding your favourite product because they are already available here. Actually I was pretty much overwhelmed when I saw one of their stall in Watson’s. I can’t figure out what to buy! Until I finally decided to have their AA Cream.

What is AA Cream by the way? 

I know you are all confused with the number of letter creams ( BB, CC, DD and ZZ ) coming out in the market nowadays. To what is their use? Benefits and the likes. 

I really wonder what’s AA to be exact.

Automatic Aura is what Cathy Doll’s AA stands for. Usually from the letter itself that you’ll find its use like BB for Blemish Balm or CC for Color Correction. 

This AA cream foundation provides incredibly lightweight texture like the air. This easy-to-blend formula automatically delivers an aura complexion all day long with the Auto Aura, Anti-Acne, and Anti-Aging effects. It provides perfect coverage and naturally smooth appearance to the skin. Moreover, it contains the properties of Tea Tree Oil that helps to control oil and reduces the occurrence of acne; Korean Herb Extract that helps to fade off dark spots caused by acne, while Titanium Dioxide brightens skin tone and protects skin from dullness with the 45x sunscreen protection benefit. This item is well-suited for every skin types including sensitive skin.”

 I suppose from the name Aura it’ll give you that instant glow. I purchased the trial pack only which costs me Php 54.00 at Watson’s. They only have two color variants which is Light Beige and Natural Beige. I chose the latter since it’s leaning closer to my skin color but not exactly.

Here are the following thoughts on my Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream SPF 45 PA+++ 

  • Has a strong tea tree scent upon application but fades eventually
  • Turns grayish on skin
  • Creamy and thick consistency makes it easy to blend
  • Feels lightweight on the skin though it’s a little bit tacky upon application
  • Medium coverage
  • Good oil control coverage
  • Tends to emphasize some dry parts of my face
  • Matte finish
  • Good spectrum coverage ideal for summer ( SPF 45 PA+++)
  • Has a tendency to cake when applied with brush or by using your fingers.

As you can see it has a very thick consistency that I resent applying it using my fingers on first use. 

I’m not sure if you noticed but it looked cakey on me. But surprisingly it held up to my face without the oilyness for 4 hours. Really not bad since the only oily place noticeable is around nose area. 

As oppose to this one wherein I used a beauty blender. I love that it adhere to my skin very well though you might notice that it emphasizes the dry parts in my face ( side of nose and side of  mouth ) The freshness it gives due to its matte finish is very ideal for everyday specially this summer since it already has SPF 45 PA+++ in it.

Though it was never a love at first use I learned to work it’s way out to be a suitable companion this summer. It really pays that you have to try everything possible before you ditch a product. The only downside is the grayish color it gives to your skin making it difficult to find match. And I do hope they would have at least four color variants for the in between. Other than this, everything is workable.

Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream SPF 45 PA+++ is from the AA Series. Other product included is the Cathy Doll AA Matte Powder Cushion Oil Control SPF 50 PA+++

The Cathy Doll AA Automatic Aura Cream SPF 45 PA+++ is available in tube and trial packs. Both are sold in all Watson’s and 7-11 branches nationwide. 

Cathy Doll is a Korean inspired brand made in Thailand.

Picks of the Month

It’s the time of the month again ladies that we share our same likes or favorites. The month of March is the birth month of my dear mother. It is also the month where my father got to meet our Creator. I believe these events will forever be engraved in my being but I never thought that another life changing one will add up to this. Well anyways it’s another story to be told. As I gather all the things I noticed that most included in this segment are somewhat became my comfort. Things that had given me consolation in this trying times. 
I’ll start with this scent that really uplifted my spirits everytime I use it. The name pretty much says it all. At the same time it’s smell is my prelude to summer.

Bath & Body Works White Citrus 

Though March would usually be  hot and humid, we got to have the opposite. Since the global warming is pretty evident now almost for the whole month we experienced cold winds. And what a better time for this is to have coffee. I really am not an avid drinker but I’m keen on trying everything new that is out in the market. This two newly released got me hooked up.

Great Taste Double White which for me resembled Starbucks White Mocha and although this is not a coffee Coffeemate Salted Caramel has taken my ordinary coffee days to the next level. pixlr-2

Come latter week of the month that it became hotter than the previous, taking a shower seems to be my favorite pass time. Well figuratively, just because the heat is so much to bear that you’ll be thinking of taking a shower every now and then. And very timely that I got a new body shower to try out. After a few days, I’m officially loving it!

Dial Soothing Care pH Balanced Body Wash with Collagen simply takes my breath away every time I take a bath. Contrary to the last Dial Body Wash that I had, the effect of this one is quite similar to Healthy Moisture with Soy and Almond Milk ( also from Dial) It gives my skin that healthy glow and softness. Also I don’t bother applying lotion afterwards because it doesn’t dry up my skin. Surely the Collagen is working out here.2017-04-10-17-41-53

For almost half of the month that I haven’t had a good decent sleep. If this is the case, chances are breakouts will be popping out here and there. As predicted I actually had the cystic ones. I should really thank my brother for lending me his first aid solution to budding pimples. Calayan Skin Calming Solution has been my saving grace. InstaBox_201741217207685

I’m still with my usual stuff in terms of makeup since I always lean on the light ones and weather changed finding it still appropriate.

The month of March has changed me emotionally. It gave me a sense of maturity in an aspect of acceptance and moving forward. These guys have been with me, lifting my senses. I believed even though these were just petty ones incredibly they made me survive. Lastly, though it may sound cliche Blogging has kept my sanity and I couldn’t thank you enough my virtual friends for being with me. Until our next favorites.

Affordable Makeups for Graduation

Thursdays and Fridays for Instagram freaks are usually meant “throwbacks” and “flashbacks” ( with the hashtags of course) And for millennials (as what we called) and titas of Manila (which is more fitting for me, lol) we cringe whenever we see our photographs from way back. Be it baby pics, family reunion, office functions and the most timely graduation. Yep! Do you still remember those studio pictures that doesn’t even give justice ( to think it’s taken from the studio *roll eyes roll*) Those makeups that you don’t have any say at all just because you’re too scared to ruin the artistic vibes of the makeup artist or else her mood will be all over the place and you’re the one to blame. And those sky scrapper bangs. Ugh! It’s either I wasn’t able to move on or because I was hoping to share that achievement of my life to my children or grandchildren in the future but afraid of the mockery by my own kin. Anyways, gone were the days. At least now we could edit out our imperfections from different photo application. Or we could go to a salon to get ourselves fixed for the main event. But not all are for the shamcy fancy. Most are still opting for practicality like doing it their own since there are so many affordable stuffs now to choose from. It’s also a good investment for makeup enthusiast or those who wants to put up their own collection of necessities just in case a function needs it. So with this in mind, I’ve listed makeups, tools as well as shops that could be of help now that graduation is here. 

First things first, let’s not put aside the natural beauty of a youthful skin. We should always bear in mind that we have to maintain that youthfulness by moisturizing our face. Moisturizers gives a very good base for your skin. It also helps to keep the makeup adhere more. The best to use are the light ones that are non-greasy such as Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer

 I know some are still skeptical in using moisturizers in a tropical country like ours but believe me this is a very good investment that your skin will surely thank you for someday. A 50ml tube retails for Php 115.

Next is to Prime. This event calls for long hours of waiting. Primers is like setting a good canvass for a good makeup. So if you still want your look to hold until the moment the Dean calls your name, girl you have to prime. A highly suggested, affordable and a very close dupe of Benefit Porefessional is Maybelline Baby Skin which solds for only Php 299.

Then we proceed to our good foundation. We have to put into consideration something that will look good under the lights and could withstand the long hours of waiting without melting. At the same time feels lightweight and finishes like a second skin. With this in mind I immediately thought of Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation

via WetnWild.com

This retails for Php 525.

Moving on we go to our eyes. We would want to have our eyes speaks the joy we have for the said event so we would opt for the basic but at the same time looking professional. We need an eyeshadow product that we could use not only for this occasion but also after like job hunting right? So the Ever Bilena Brown Eyeshadow Palette is very suitable since it has beautiful nudes suited for a tame but business-like look. Retails at Php 150.

Still with our eyes we now go to our brows. Some of you might still have virgin eyebrows. I highly suggest that you keep it that way. You might want to get rid of some strays to have a perfect shape. Other than that please don’t overdo. So many pays a grand just to have thick brows. Mumuso has a wide array of eyebrow pencils, eyebrow mascara and pen to choose from. The price is so affordable at Php 99 only.

And we now go to the cheeks. Eventhough it’s a night ( well for the long wait) event I suggest to still have that naturally looking flush. Don’t be scared that it won’t last till picture taking time. Going overboard is not a valid excuse. We wouldn’t want to be looking like a clown on this occasion. Remember if we have a good foundation/base  our blush will stick with us through thick and thin. Detail Cosmetic’s Influential and Ever Bilena Fig are both very flattering on our Filipina skin. These two are also versatile by serving as a contour and eyeshadow as well. Very affordable at Php 175. 

Still on our windows to the soul is a very dependable Mascara.  It is very inevitable that we’ll shed tears of joy so we must be needing a waterproof but at the same time could hold our peppers curl intact after that situation. What better more that I could think of is none other than Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara. For only Php 199, those eyes is worth fluttering. 

via Maybelline.com

Last but not the least is the lips. After the ceremony, we will be exchanging kisses with our parents as our gratitude for this milestone. Friends, classmates and teachers that we won’t be seeing for awhile. So what a better way to be prepared for this is to have a long lasting lip color that will stay with us. Something that we will comfortably wear all throughout even at the after party, right? So Maybelline Color sensational Matte lipstick is very much forgiving on this. Lips will still look hydrated even though it’s matte. I chose a color that very much accentuates our morena skin but at the same time would look fresh and natural in the shade Touch of Spice. This retails for only Php 299. And if you were lucky, you could avail for a good discount with their ongoing sale.

Makeup is complete, we now go with the tools. You could find affordable makeup brushes and sponges as well as hair tools for the do at Divisoria’s 168. At Php 250 you could already own a decent set of makeup brushes and for Php50 a beauty blender. But if you don’t have the patience to conquer the world of divi I must say Landmark is the place to be. They also sell affordable brushes that are Korean made and eyelashes. I got this egg blender there for only Php99. 

 Graduation is the end and at the same time the beginning of another chapter in our life. I believe no makeups could amount to the inner joy of having completed this course. That alone is picture perfect. Also let us not forget our parents for the sacrifices they had in order for us to achieve this success. We owe it all to them. To the graduates of 2017, Congratulations!

Picks of the Month

New year, new name. Monthly Favorites have been the solid mainstay of every blog, like mine. It’s one segment in every blogger that I look forward to come every first week of the month. That sneaky feeling of coveting someone’s favorite and trying them out to see how well it really works. If you’re lucky, you could find a gem and share it also to your friends. If not, you try to figure out where you’ve gone wrong. That at least for me. You might find some products familiar since maybe it’s also included in your lists. So for the month of January-February combined, here are my picks.

Pink Sugar Our ‘lil Secret Concealer 

Making on the lists of Preview’s top beauty picks of 2016, this concealer didn’t really caught me at first use I should say. The romance didn’t work beacuse I find it too drying and tight causing to crease in every place that I put it. I was at the brink of handing it to someone that will find it of best use but I stopped myself. I had this habit of giving a product some rest upon it’s first use or prior to opening. I don’t know if you also do this but sometimes when these products were given some enough shelf time before you use it again, they seem to work pretty much effective than they originally do. If that makes sense. So on the second time around, this was already my baby. I use it to conceal my under eyes since the shade that I choose is a bit lighter than my tone. They still tend to dry up into patches but I know my trick now. Dabbing it with a lil moisturizer or moisturize the area that you are suppose to use this to avoid caking. And it also helps that I apply it using a beauty blender.

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream 

BB Creams doesn’t really do well on my face. Aside that it’s too oily, I couldn’t find any that will give a good coverage. I usually would end having breakouts after using failing me on the attempt of finding the perfect one. And so I gave up thinking that BB Creams would just only work well for those who have semi-perfect skin or the younger ones who only has a little imperfections. No large pores like mine. So when I found of last year that a lot of my favorite vlogger who also has the oily skin type as mine, swore by this product I quickly added it on my wish list. But I still have to lower my expectations and don’t give in right away and find a at least trial size first so I wouldn’t cry that much in the end. Indeed this by far has lived up to my hopes and expectations. What to love about this product is that it makes you skin radiant and glowing that no other bb creams that I tried hsas given me. The perfect dew that keeps your skin looking healthy not oily.

 

Garnier Miscellar Water 

I guess you could say that I’ve been living under the rock for sometime now. Yes, I do wanted to have a miscellar water to help me with my makeup. But with the height of it and the countless brands in the market, my chosy self is the main culprit why I took so long. I really haven’t gotten any to at least try on and base my comparison. I just simply jumped into the best. So far, their  complaints would be stinging especially in getting off that eye makeup which I really hate. And I guess my long wait has paid off when I chose Garnier. The only down side is that it couldn’t help on taking off my Heroine Make Mascara. 

 

Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara

I have a very sparse and short eyelashes and my eyes hurt whenever I use a mascara. I really would love falsies but I couldn’t perfect putting them on just yet. So I wonder if there is a mascara that would have a similar effect as putting those falsies on. And yes there is and I found it in Heroine Make. I love that it could really make your lashes look naturally longer in a long, really long period of time without wearing off or smudging. Proof to it is that no makeup remover can get this thing off your eyes. You really need to buy their mascara remover.

Ipuda Facial Masks

Ipuda may not be your leading masks as for the quality of sheets per se but the thing is for me, a good masks is the one who is soaked in an overflowing serum which suprisingly I found in this product. I often had so much left from the serum that I soak another facial sheet tablet ( available in Daiso, Mumuso and Miniso) in it and it’s good for another use.What to love more is that this is so affordable that you won’t have any trouble stacking and following the Korean skin care routine every night with this.

Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint


I recently did a review on this lip tint and from the moment of purchase it was love at first use. I must say that OR01  is surprisingly my favourite amongst three even if it’s RD01’s the main reason why I bought this was. One of the lip tints that didn’t gave me a chappy lips after a day long use. It’s also nice to have these cute little wine bottles in your makeup kit.

I wish to add more unfortunately I lost track of the products in my vanity. But surely I’ll be seeing you again next month and let’s have fun counting a lengthy list.
