July has been the busiest and the most challenging month to date. To juggle the schedule is a painstaking task as I obsessed myself on doing almost everything in one go. Thus my time management skills has been put to test. Nevertheless, above all the chaos we definitely would still want to see ourselves in control by looking at our best amidst pressure. I know it’s hard to keep up ze favorites on a monthly basis but these three had been a very good companion for the whole month. 

Hello August! 

Though Chinese finds you as their ghost month, I want to align everything with positivity and good vibes. With that let’s start off with last month’s favorites. Yay! Happiness.

Giving vibrance and glow for my month is Pink Sugar HD Cheeks in Concrete Jungle. 



What to love about this product?
 Since the dawn of Becca and Jacklyn Hill collaboration, everybody went cray. And since Sephora Philippines has make it a lot easier, so many has been able to join the glowing club.  The trend it is, but if you are like me who find it hard to spend a grand, Pink Sugar’s Concrete Jungle,  fits just as well. I’m so thankful to be able to find a good dupe for a very reasonable price of Php 490. The pigments where good, semi fine and really gives that bouncing glow even if the lighting isn’t that good ( my way to test ) 

  • Feeling Kylie over Matte in Detail Samantha and Pinkies Smooth Long Eye & Lip Pencil in Chocobrown



    What to love about this product?
    I know some of you are longing to have that Kylie Lip Kit, be it because of the fad or just for the experience of that sought after longevity that everyone talks about. I personally love how they were able to capture the brown  that I was looking for that it made it’s way easily to my heart. And because also of this hype that I’m thankful for the release of so many dupes, I was able to choose without compromising my budget. In my country, I found a true color duplicate for True Brown K in Matte Detail Samantha who I got in a very good buy one take one deal. Whilst Pinkies Smooth Long Eye & Lip Pencil  in Chocobrown is so creamy just like a lipstick, a perfect alternative if you’re a penchant for smooth gliding lipliner that is like Kylie’s.

    • Staying fresh with Pink Sugar BB Cream



      What to love about this product?

      Pink Sugar  is proudly Philippine brand. They might still be a baby in the business but proved us wrong when surprisingly all of their makeup line is at par with the Filipino consumers picky standards. I’m still at awe at how they were able to put all details in their makeups in just a short period of time that they were able to build a name that is dependable and worthy. One of the so many things that I love is their BB Cream. I must admit that I’m saddened at the thought that only few BB’s has passed the oily skin radar of Filipinos. And I believe this is one of the few. Although minimal in coverage but it’s good for an everyday use. It didn’t clog my pores, no breakouts aftermath. It sets on to a dewy finish on me which makes my skin looking healthy but it isn’t oily on my face.

      These three has been my best bud all throughout the month. They making me look at my best has been very rewarding second to my completed tasks.

      My July Hits (Hair Care Favorites)

      Thank God it’s weekend!
      How did your week turn out? With me, everything is all usual, pretty tiring but as what they say, we’ll all get the hang of it. So who’s excited for the weekend?
      On the last three days weather has been bipolar. Occasional rains occur making it a little hard to enjoy outdoors. Sigh. I read that there’s a shoe expo happening tomorrow. Being a lover of shoes, I fell so tempted. If not only for the rain, ugh! Summer has indeed ended.
      If I were to encapsulate summer all I can think of is the hot weather. I think it’s getting bad every year and this I feel is worst than before. I’ll tell you how bad it is that you end up soaking just by merely typing from the computer. In this condition, taking a shower for me should be 3x a day. But having a sensitive scalp, shampooing everyday only leads me to flaky scalp or worst, dandruff. Maybe because shampoos are too strong. But ditching it would just worsen the case.
      For years now, it has been a struggle for me in finding the right one that would solve my flaky scalp every summer. Just in time that my mom give me this shampoo to try. She said she got it for free from a Php 200 worth of purchase. I’m pretty surprise that she got the full size of Schwarzkopf Extra Care Hair Repair with Liquid Keratin Anti-Dandruff Shampoo at 175ml.

      I thought, thats neat! It’s my first time for years having a full size product from Watsons. It’s never a practice here unlike in other countries to which I know. Enough of my rant, moving on my skeptic mind is in full action again. You can’t blame me for that, i’ve used a number and none of them kept their promise. But given it’s Schwarzkopf (tongue twisting name by the way) I might give it a shot, besides i’m in need of an immediate remedy.
      I gave it a full week of usage, and the result, perfect! Alleluiah! Finally, the seach is over.
      It lathers fairly unlike other shampoos of the like. Seems to me that all of these are uniformed in smell, I guess. No itchy feeling at all and the best part is that it didn’t torture my hair. Though there’s still a need of conditioner for frizz seems enivitable. Unfortunately, the liquid keratin dind’t work for me.
      All in all, i’m fairly satisfied with it making this number one on my July Hits.

      Since i’ll be needing a follow up conditioner I decided to use Dove Oxygen Moisture Conditioner.

      I’m not really a fan of Dove since I find their products formulation too heavy. But i’ve read good reviews about this new product so I thought maybe they have improved. My curiousity lead me to buying instead.
      First, the smell. For some reason I give smell a big factor in chosing my hair products. Suprisingly, it’s completely different from the smell that I grew up to. This is pretty pleasant, not that masculine scent they had. I always end up smelling my hair strands. The body that it claims never failed me. I love how my hair looked so nourished, no tangles, no frizz. Making this my staple conditioner from now on.
      Last from my Hair Care Favorites is Human Nature 100% Natural Clarifying Shampoo.

      As I mentioned, I own a sensitive scalp that irritates easily. Though I may find the solution for the dandruff and flakes on my hair, I still opt to use a clarifying shampoo once a week just so the chemical residue would not accumulate. This is my go to product. Though it thoroughly cleanse my hair, there’s no tangles compared to the other clarifying that i’ve tried. I found this totally compatible with my hair. The best part is it’s organic.

      There you have it, my months hits focused on Hair Care. Excited to see your favorites too! Till the next post. Enjoy your weekend!😘
