DKNY MY NY: Love, New York

The first time I had a whiff of DKNY's Be Delicious fragrance, a fragrance that DKNY says is inspired by New York, I immediately got excited for the time when I can finally visit the Big Apple. I've always wondered how it's like and how it would feel like to be there-maybe it's as picturesque (or even more) as its depiction in photography and stories, and as sweet, jovial, and colorful as the fragrance of DKNY-maybe only a true blue New Yorker or those who have visited the city will only know. Oh, I cannot wait for my time to visit NY to come!

DKNY once again captures the heart of New York, but this time, in a warmer, soulful rendition called DKNY MY NY. Singer/ Song Writer Rita Ora is the face of DKNY's new fragrance. According to DKNY, Rita's urban chic style and bold, eclectic, and free- spirited personality makes her the perfect icon to embody the fragrance.

Top 4 Super Black and Super Matte Eyeliners

Eyeliner is an essential part of my routine, especially matte, black eyeliners. Because I like 'em rich, thick, super matte, and super black. Why so? Because as someone who has almond- shaped eyes, I find that matte eyeliners are the most effective in giving me deeper and more defined eyes, plus I like how polished and classy a matte finish is.

So far, these are the matte black eyeliners that I find awesome and use on rotation. Click READ MORE and find out why I love them to bits!

FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: What My Regular Makeup Routine Is Like

Well, that was a really interesting week as I think I've met the most appalling people in this industry. They're so appalling that I sometimes wonder how they can sleep soundly at night. Maybe some people are just born and bred to be a*holes.

Oh, I can't wait for this week to end-like what they say, 'It's just one of those weeks." I'm looking forward to a better one next week-a way, way better one.

Thank God that this blog gives me a quick breather from such things, moments, and people. I'll just answer this week's FMF to let off some steam! :) Question is from Grace and she asks:

Hi Martha! 
I always like your final look in all your face, lip, and eye product reviews. Please share your daily makeup routine. Thank you! 

Hi Grace!

Thanks for the lovely compliment! My daily makeup routine is just simple, although it always takes a while for me to finish because I am very meticulous with the outcome! To give you an idea of my meticulousness, after doing my makeup, I always check the final look under natural light and artificial light, and then make adjustments if necessary (which happens all the time!), plus I take photos to see how well my look will fare in photography-I live by the adage "Be dressed and look fab everyday because you'll never know when you'll be photographed!" :)

But you know, that's just me. You can take away all that meticulousness and just follow (if you wish!) my simple makeup routine. Click READ MORE and I'll share it with you!

BYS HD Microfinish Powder Review

Here's a review on BYS HD Microfinish Powder.

Price: P899.00
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in BYS counters in Watson's and SM Department Stores


If you like reading cosmetic labels like me, you'll realize that almost all powder products contain Silica, this mighty ingredient that is highly prized in the world of cosmetics. There might be a question mark lingering in your head so let me briefly introduce Ms. Silica to you.

Silica is a mineral, naturally found in the earth particularly in Sandstone, Granite, and Clay. Thanks to modern science, the beauty industry has found a way to extract this mineral without us having to manually filter these earth compounds to get Silica (And I doubt we know how, unless you're a scientist!). Silica is a great anti-caking and opacifying agent, one of the key helpers in long- wearing eyeshadows, face powders, liquid bases, concealers, blush, and bronzer products, plus it has great oil- absorbing properties. And since Silica has this natural smooth and fine texture, it has become the ingredient of choice for most HD setting powders. Unfortunately, when you see HD, the word expensive usually follows. 

BYS' new PRO Makeup range includes the HD Microfinish Powder, which is made from pure Silica, but without that jaw- dropping price tag. If you're starting to ease yourself into the world of PRO makeup, this HD powder is one of the great makeups to start with!


BYS said that this product imparts a velvety, soft, smooth, and long- lasting finish on the skin. It only comes in a translucent shade.

So this product is made up of only one thing: Silica. Actually, you can buy Silica in bulk from cosmetic manufacturers and resellers-that's what almost everyone did when Silica first boomed in the makeup industry and women were trying to find places where they can get it cheap, but a word of caution to everyone: There's the risk of getting contaminated Silica if you just get it from anyone or anywhere. Contaminated Silica poses health hazards such as emphysema and lung inflammation so to be sure and safe, buy from legit and licensed brands.

Experience the wonders of Silica without spending a fortune after the cut!
