L'Oreal Gentle Lip And Eye Makeup Remover Review

Here's a review on L'Oreal Gentle Lip and Eye Makeup Remover.

Price: P395.00
Bought From: Watson's
Other Locations: Available in all Watson's stores, leading supermarkets, drugstores, and department stores


It's true when they said that the thing you're looking for, most of the time, is just right under your nose. I know that L'Oreal Gentle Lip and Eye Makeup Remover has been around since time immemorial, but I always choose to ignore it because I've always believed that Bifesta's Eye Makeup Remover and Face Of Australia Gentle Makeup Remover are the gentlest eye and lip makeup removers out there. The rest? Well, I've always thought that they're posers. :p

I ran out of Bifesta two weeks ago and it was too late when I realized that I've used up my three back ups and I forgot to order Face Of Australia. I did a quick trip to SM Aura and grabbed this makeup remover just because it was the only one available-well, there was ZA Cosmetics' version, but volume was relatively smaller than this and price was about the same so I went for the one that will give me the bang for my buck! 

Ladies and Gents, I'm happy to report that I've finally found the third gentlest eye and lip makeup remover and it's this baby! Can't believe that it really delivers and stays true to its claim! :D


I bet this product is an Asia- exclusive version as I saw online that it comes in varying designs and formulations. Anyway! This product simply promises to remove stubborn eye and lip makeup, be it mascara, eye liner, eyeshadow, and long- wearing lipstick efficiently and of course, gently.


Look no further if you're searching for the best and gentlest drugstore eye and lip makeup remover! More about this new skin care staple of mine after the cut!

OOTD: Miss Manners

BAG: Balenciaga

My granmum told me to 'always dress as the girl every boy would like to bring home to their mommas.' So this little OOTD is a tribute to her-her grace, her passion, and her wisdom that's beyond any book I read. :)

Unboxing: BDJ Box April 2014 (Pixy Edition)

By far, I think this is the BDJ box that has excited me the most just because it features a whole new brand of makeup! I’m always up for new discoveries!

Introducing Pixy, a popular Indonesian makeup brand. Pixy prides on their skin- caring makeup range formulated with Japanese extracts. Their most popular product is the Ultimate Makeup Cake, a full coverage powder that promises to stay intact for up to 8 hours. Interesting!    

 Without further ado, I now present you the contents of BDJ Box X Pixy. Click READ MORE for the unboxing!

MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow X4 in A Medley Of Mauves Review

Here's a review on MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow X4 in A Medley Of Mauves.

Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in the following MAC stores and branches: Eastwood Grand Mall, Ayala Center Cebu, SM MOA, Trinoma, SM Aura, Glorietta 3, Powerplant Mall, Shangri-La Mall, SM Megamall


Do you own or have you ever used baked eyeshadows? If you do, you'll realize that they're pretty chalky and pigmentation is pretty light if used dry, and they begin to work decently if used with water. I dislike using water on my powder products for hygiene purposes and this is why I'm currently loving MAC's new Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad X4. These baked shadows have the nicest pigmentation I've seen and not in the least chalky!


The Mineralize line isn't exactly mineral makeup, but rather traditional makeup infused with lots of beneficial minerals for the skin. According to MAC, this particular product contains the unique Mineral- Rich Yeast extract, a blend of 77 skin nourishing minerals. It comes in six color combinations. A Medley Of Mauves is a purple-pink palette.

 Packaging is light, albeit a little bulky and reminds me of an all too familiar best- selling MAC product. Can you guess what it is? :)

Sulfate- Free Shampoos and Conditioners to Try

Photo Credits:

To prevent my hair from drying out further, I alternate regular hair cleansers with sulfate- free ones, then do intensive conditioning at the end of each week, preferably Saturday. As we all know, sulfates are great cleansers, but they just leave your locks dry and brittle. Sulfate- free cleansers help me retain that much needed scalp oil to condition my hair, the natural way. Here are some great sulfate- free shampoos and conditioners I've tried and I'll be glad to share 'em with you after the jump!

Price: P699.00
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Please inquire via Happy Skin's official FB Fan Page


Hello from Boracay! Just had to take this little breather before the heat in the city drives me crazy! I actually love it when it's warm, but only if I'm on the beach haha!

So! I'm reviewing these new blush shades of Happy Skin's Get Cheeky With Me Powder Blush because the shades are so apt for the season, not to mention the shade names are so quirky and they bring to mind some of my most romantic moments in summertime. Cheesy!


Sunset Kiss and The Morning After are part of Happy Skin's Turn Up The Heat Summer Collection. I'm lacking one shade here called Summer Crush. The blushes, by the way, come with their very own complimenting Shut Up And Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie.

My thoughts on the shades, plus the swatches after the break!

Sumptuous Sundays: Ramen Nagi


I haven't been blogging about food lately because I am pretty strict with my diet. Well, I don't really want to call it a diet, but rather a lifestyle because I think I want to stick with this for life. (It's called Feast Your Fat Away by Nate Miyaki, by the way)

But I still do have my cheat days. I'm only human and I have cravings too! I have one cheat meal every week to keep me sane. :) Today's cheat meal is brought to you by Ramen Nagi. :)

Originating in Japan, Ramen Nagi has gained steady popularity amongst the Ramen- loving Filipino crowd because of their DIY Ramen dishes. I even read a list called Top Ramen Restaurants in Manila and this restaurant tops the list.

Lolita Lempicka L'Eau Jolie EDT Review

Here's a review on Lolita Lempicka L'Eau Jolie EDT.

Price: 30ml- P1,950.00; 50ml- P2,950.00
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in Rustan's department stores


When I go to meetings and client presentations, you know what kind of fragrance I wear? Warm floral. Because it exudes wisdom, brilliance, depth, and elegance-I just feel that my clients take me seriously when I sport a deep perfume. And since this type of perfume is strong and captivating, I create the impression that I know what I'm talking about and I know why I'm doing whatever I'm doing.


It is so hot right now. As much as I want to wear my favorite warm florals in my upcoming meetings, I can't 'cuz they just become heady if worn in this kind of weather so they're on a hiatus, specifically in the fridge. Don't wanna risk wearing them to my lunch meetings or else, I might blow my chances with my clients just because the perfume is killing me haha! Lolita Lempicka L'Eau Jolie takes the place of all my warm florals (for now!) because it's a refreshing floral with hints of warmth here and there. I get the best of both worlds with this fragrance.

More about this favorite of mine after the jump!
