Some of the notable members of N.E.W. are Roseanne and Robina Ko of Status Hair Salon, Edilee Omoyon of Milea Organics, Judith Cinco of Imagere Watch Store. N.E.W. actively participates in social endeavors as well such as Adopt A Small Island in Antique.

N.E.W. has been staging bazaars too to support the endeavor of the group and this 2014, they're going to have N.E.W. Fashion and Beauty Fair Year 2 at Megatrade Hall 3, SM Megamall Bldg.

FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: What Do You Do With Foundations That Don't Match Your Skin Tone?

Happy Halloween! The BF and I are doing something cute today because today's our annual Halloween Date Night. I'll blog about it soon! In the meantime, check out today's FMF from Lovely.

Hi Martha, 
I would like to know, what did you do with the foundation that isn't your skin tone? I have three Make Up For Ever Foundation sent to me by my aunt as a gift-too bad it's all pink shades. I'm fair- skinned with yellow undertone. Do you know any remedy or solution to it so I can still use it and the product won't all go to waste. Thank you very much1 Hope you can help. 

Hey Lovely!

I experienced that before and I should say that it's so heartbreaking, especially if the foundations are pricey! But do I get rid of them? Yes, but not without giving them a chance. Before throwing or giving away foundation, I use all my makeup skills to make them work, but if it's not really meant to be, then that's the time I let go. As for my techniques in working foundations that don't match your skin tone, click READ MORE for that.

Flawless Cell Booster Infusion Mask Diary

Did a beauty stopover at Flawless Face and Body Clinic at SM Makati yesterday. I almost wanted to go for my usual treatment, Acne Control Advanced Facial, but thought of trying something else the last minute.

Rejuvenation was the word that guided me yesterday in choosing my treatment at Flawless-I needed it more than ever! I asked the helpful Flawless lady about their rejuvenating treatments and she automatically she mused "Cell Booster Infusion Mask!" Cell Booster Infusion Mask, it is!

Cell Booster Infusion Mask is a treatment that rejuvenates on the inside and out. Flawless said that this treatment makes use of Growth Factors in Stem Cells found in a rare Swiss Apple. Growth Factors, according to studies, can help the skin immensely by stimulating younger cells and reversing damage. 

This treatment features a unique Hydrogel Mask that contains an essence with a high concentration of ingredients from the rare Swiss Apple-the mask is said to deliver the active ingredients throughly into the skin as it reacts to its temperature rather than the air. Sounds cool!

Take this treatment with me when you click READ MORE!

Olay Natural White Body Bars: The Best of Both Worlds in Skin Lightening

Beauty is a journey and as with all journeys, it takes a whole lot of time, patience, and effort, but it certainly doesn’t have to be punishing-for it to be enjoyable, we just have to find the perfect balance in everything that we do and we use. I like balance in everything even in my beauty regimen. For example, my underarm whitening regimen: Yes, I do use intensive whitening soaps, but I make it a point to counteract the undesirable effects of such products like dryness, redness, and irritation by alternating with a gentler, more moisturizing whitening soap after each month. It may be a little tedious, but what helps me stick to this regimen is knowing that I am still on my way to getting my desired result, but without sacrificing my skin’s health.

More than balance, I’m in love with variety and adventure too. It’s always a pleasurable activity to go soap- shopping in the supermarket every month because I get to discover new players in the field and re-discover some classics. My pick for the month is Olay’s Natural White Body Bars. Let me tell you more about these products after the break!

Beauty Lovers Unite at Rustan's Beauty Addicts Season 2 + Beauty Addict Card Holder Treats

Where do all Beauty Addicts like me go? To Rustan's, of course! I'm quite vocal with my love for Rustan's in my blog because it's got all my favorite beauty brands!

Last week, they launched Beauty Addicts Season 2, a party for Bloggers and the Press. I wasn't able to attend Season 1 last year, but if I knew that it was gonna be fun, I wouldn't have missed it!

Basically, the entire Beauty Section of Rustan's was turned into a colorful playground-we had to accomplish certain tasks and play a couple of games to earn freebies and certain services. Here's the first challenge that I did for Diptyque, Annick Goutal, and Acca Kappa: Posing with a glass of Lemon Drop Martini made with Belvedere Vodka.

More of my fun Beauty Addicts Season 2 experience when you click READ MORE, plus Rustan's has a lovely treat and giveaway to all Beauty Addict card holders out there!

Here's a review on Heroine Make Lasting Mineral BB Cream 02.

Price: P595.00
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in Watson's and SM Department Stores


I wish more Japanese BB Cream brands will come to the country just because I like them very much and they fit our climate pretty well-I've proven that they're the champions in the long- wearing department and Heroine Make Lasting Mineral BB Cream is another proof that if you want a BB Cream that will last in our humid weather, Japanese BB Creams are the way to go!


This sebum- proof BB Cream with a foundation- like coverage nourishes the skin with minerals and softens with a serum formula of Penetration- Hyaluronic Acid, 8 types of Amino Acids, Collagen, Wild Rose Extract, Chamomile Extract, and Ceramides. It has SPF 34 PA and is fragrance- free.

Product comes in a soft, easy- squeeze tube-it's very compact and you can pop it in your purse so you can refresh your makeup anytime.
