Smashbox On The Rocks Always Sharp Eye Liner Review + Swatches

Here's a review on Smashbox On The Rocks Always Sharp Eye Liner Set.

Price: P2,250.00/ P995.00 each
Bought From: Free
Available In: All Beauty Bar stores


Smashbox has pioneered an eyeliner that is way beyond cool: It's so cool because every time you remove the cap, the eyeliner is always freshly- sharpened that you have no choice but to finally toss your makeup sharpener and if you find sharpening too tedious, not to mention you always can't seem to find that darned sharpener when you need it, this liner will come to your rescue. Welcome to the future, girls.


This award- winning product by Smashbox features a built- in sharpener inside the cap that sharpens the liner in every use. Always Sharp Eyeliner is a permanent collection and comes in over a dozen of colors, but for this set, Smashbox has packaged five of their best- selling and limited edition colors in Waterproof Kohl and 3D Liner variants.

L'oreal Mythic Oil Review

Here's a review on L'Oreal Mythic Oil.

Price: P995.00
Bought From: Henri Calayag Salon
Available in: Selected salons around the metro


I ran out of my precious Kerastase Elixir Ultime one time and all I had was P1,000 in my wallet, and I needed it badly-I've been using hair oil each and every single day for the past three years and I feel naked without it-it's that essential to me. 

When I picked up mom one time at Henri Calayag, Residences at Greenbelt, Makati after having her monthly hair pampering sesh, I saw this product called L'Oreal Mythic Oil and upon seeing that it's only P995 (I got change! Woot!), I grabbed it right away because Kerastase is by L'Oreal anyway. This product is a blessing in disguise because now I have a much cheaper (but still luxe) dupe for my favorite Kerastase product!


L'Oreal Mythic Oil is an oil- based serum for hair that contains Avocado and Grapeseed oils to control frizz, tame flyaways, nourish hair, and keep it shiny throughout the day.

5 Cute Holiday Gifts

I found myself cleaning my room last Saturday-I had to pinch myself to know if I were dreaming or what, but 'tis true, 'tis true, I'm becoming less and less occupied now, and that's very good because I can finally devote some time to other important things like this.

Cleaning your room is not only therapeutic, but inspiring as well-as I was arranging a couple of stuff on one corner, all of sudden, a blog post idea had just hit me! :)

Here are a couple of gift suggestions that are quite ordinary, but lovable nonetheless. With these, you won't have to cringe every time you hand out your gift just because it's a pillow, a pair of socks, or junk food because I guarantee, any recipient will love it!

Estēe Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer Review

Here's a review on Estēe Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer.

Price: Around P1,500.00+
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in Estēe Lauder Rustan's Makati, Rustan's Shangri-La Mall, and Essences Powerplant Mall


Here's proof that happiness comes when you least expect it: I was having one of my down days so decided to browse IG for cat photos and 9gag to shrug off the heavy feeling. To my surprise, it wasn't a cat photo or 9gag that turned on my happy switch in an instant, but an announcement of Rustans' on their IG page saying that I won P10,000.00 worth of Estēe Lauder products. How cool is that?! I asked them how did that happen and the admin of Rustans' IG page said that I won the #EsteeLauderBeautyAddict makeup contest held in the Rustan's Beauty Addict Season 2 event-I had zero idea that it was a contest! The whole thing was totally unexpected, but very much appreciated, nevertheless!

I got a pre-selected EL loot amounting to P10,000.00+ and this primer called Estēe Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer is part of it. After trying it out for two weeks, I got this impression that EL makes great primers too, aside from great lipsticks, base products, and skin care! This primer keeps my makeup looking fresh all day, plus it feels just like a moisturizer!


Ideally made for normal/dry skin types, this primer is infused with Vitamin E, Rice Bran, and Shea Butter to moisturize skin. Soft- reflection optics help blur the appearance of pores and create a smoother, brighter canvas.

Olay Total Effects 7-In-One Intense Moisture Face and Body Wash: TLC for your Skin

You know, I’m liking this #BestBeautiful campaign of Olay because it doesn’t impose and tell you that you should be this, be that-it just simply tells you to be the best you, whatever your idea of beauty is-because there’s no point in feeling beautiful if you don’t look or feel like YOU!

Anyhow, I don’t know if you’re feeling this, but the air’s quite chilly already, which means it’s the perfect time to strut in your plushest jammies, overdose on hot cocoa, and huddle in a warm corner with your family or friends and talk about the year that was. As you revel in the happy elements of Christmas, don’t forget about your skin because it will need some TLC, especially in this cool season. If enlarged pores is one of the barriers to becoming your #BestBeautiful, I think the other one is having dry, scaly, itchy skin- you can solve it by overdosing on moisture!

One of the culprits behind dry skin is right under your nose: your body wash or body soap-you can overdose on lotion all you want, but if your cleansing product dries out your skin in the very beginning, your moisture- centric regimen is disrupted already. 

Begin your regimen the right way by starting with a moisturizing body wash and I’ve a new favorite that I will share with everyone today: Olay Total Effects 7-In-One Intense Moisture Face and Body Wash. Yes, you read that right, it’s for your body and your face. Click READ MORE to know more about my favorite body wash at the moment!
