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.

    The Lipstick Tag

    I’ve never been more excited when I was tagged by what I consider as my fairy godsister, Stash Matters to do The Lipstick Tag. A big THANKS for granting me my wish. My posting is already three days behind time due to an inevitable circumstances (original post was deleted! *facepalm*) that I have to start over again. If it weren’t for the love of lipsticks… Anyways, if there is one product that I often use as an excuse to break my “low buy” rule would have to be buying lipsticks. If I can’t resists my urge to be polite and talk to every single brand as I walk down every make up aisle, I would end up bringing home a load. With that I decided to put a condition, to purchase more on locally produced brands just because they are limited and hoarding will be avoided. This explains that certain products mentioned here are not that familiar. Let’s get started.

    The Rules

    1. TAG 3 bloggers to answer these same questions.
    2. Those bloggers will TAG 3 more bloggers of their choice with the same questions & rules.
    3. No tag backs

    The Questions

    1. How many lipsticks do you own?

    I have 36.

    2. What was your first ever lipstick?

    If my memory serves me right, it’s Lancome Rouge Magnetic. I just forgot the name of       the color but the hue is nude with pinkish undertone and hint of shimmers.

    3. What is your most worn lipstick?

    Because it’s summer here, I just wear something light and easy to wear so it’s got to be      Ever Bilena’s Lip and Cheek Stain.

    4. What is your favorite brand for lipsticks?

    Lancome really gave me a very good impression.

    5. What is your favorite finish?

    I admit that I’m lazy in retouching my lipstick so I always wear mattes. It’s a bit drying         though but I guess it’s the price that I have to pay for the compliments that I get.

    6. What is the last lipstick you bought?

    I bought two matte shades from Ever Bilena Supreme Matte. If you’ll ask me why always Ever Bilena, because it gives me quality dupes of some famous brands that I want. And the best part is that it only costs me quarter of the amount good enough for me to buy another brand that I love. Another one is from an online store on Instagram named Sooper Beaute. Every make up here is legit and really of good quality. I got two Lip and Cheek Creme/ Tint for the price of one. What surprised me is that these lip products didn’t dry my lips, swear!

    7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

    I always tidy up my bag after a day so I can’t remember. But what I’m sure is Lip Tattoo Pen from FM is present.

    8. What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?

    shut up

    I love the bluish red that compliments my skin tone and it’s demi matte.

    9. How do you store your lipsticks?

    They are all placed in one drawer. But I’m planning to buy some acrylic cases. Looking      at the array of lipsticks neatly arranged would be really fun.

    10. What lip products are you currently lusting over?

    I have two. First, the Peripera Rouge Pang. The Intense colors are very intriguing to think that these are only lip balms. And Rire Lip Manicure which is a matte lipstick said to be long wearing than your manicure but only it’s for the lips.

    I don’t want to end the excitement so I’m tagging christyy2010  Sanseoul and Binequeen to do the tag as well. I really want to know a lot more of what these beautiful ladies already has.
