Product Review: Vice Cosmetics Duo Finish Foundation

Thursday, April 11, 2019

     "Ganda for all" means that no matter what gender, age, skin color and skin texture you have, you are beautiful! This is what Vice Cosmetics is all about- "Ganda for you, ganda for all". I've known Vice Cosmetic because of Vice Ganda, the co-owner of the brand and from beauty bloggers that I follow who made reviews about their products.

     Vice Cosmetics first launched a lipstick line that's been a crowd favorite then followed by blush powders Early this month, another "pasabog" hit the makeup industry when they introduced their duo finish foundation with a tagline #GandangYouNaYou. I was invited to the unveiling of this promising face powder last week where we swatched and tried it on the spot to prove their claims. Sharing my thoughts on the Vice Cosmetic Duo Finish Foundation and a short review below.

     Hello dearies! It's been a while since I wrote a feature of nail polishes on my blog. Aside from lipsticks and eyeliner, I'm a huge fan of nail polishes and I'm regular at nail salons for my manicure and pedicure sessions.

Speaking of the brand O.P.I, let me share with you a collection that you will love because they collaborated with Mariah Carey for O.P.I. Mariah Carey Four Mini Holiday Hits

Monday, February 18, 2019

     Hello dearies! Did you notice that the beauty trends last year like the Korean glass skin, the Asian drunk blush, the return of glitter were hardly felt natural for Filipina skin? Yes, they were great creative outlets but is not flattering to most Filipina skin tones.

     It’s time to go full circle with a fab palette that shows who we truly are. Luckily, Avon makes it easier to embrace #EveryShadeOfYou. They just come up with a new line of nude lipsticks from Avon True Color, and it’s as gorgeous as it gets with our natural skin tone.

Feature: Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist and Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser

Friday, January 25, 2019

     Althea ended the year 2018 with a bang! From makeup to skincare, they launched two new products that will surely entice your senses- Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist and Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser. The first is a collaboration between Titi Kamal and Althea. 
Titi Kamal is an Indonesian actress and singer with a knack for fashion and style. Best identified by her luxuriously long black hair, she's a beauty icon that's captured the hearts of fans all across Southeast Asia.
     K-beauty fans will surely rejoice with this collaboration because if I'm not mistaken, only a handful of Korean brands offer cologne and perfume in the market. I have a collection of Western perfume and cologne brands and none from Asian brands. Althea is a K-Beauty online shopping destination and known to have produced their own line of cost-effective skin care products that why when I saw the pore purifying serum, I said to myself that it will be another keeper.

Cheese Platter Game On with Danes Cheese Ball

Monday, December 24, 2018

     What's one family Christmas tradition that you're excited every year? I bet it's preparing the food you will eat on Christmas Eve. Families all over the world gather to spend the holidays together because there’s nothing like the warmth of home. While no holiday celebration would be complete without family reunions, this is the best time to introduce new and fun traditions to make this holiday season even more memorable than last year’s.

     It’s a tradition that we serve spaghetti and salad on Noche Buena but this year, I’ve decided to make a little twist- instead of preparing pasta and salad, I told my mama to make a small cheese platter for the kids and adults to indulge during and after Noche Buena.

     The cold air that I felt this morning is my sign that Christmas is near. This cool breeze also reminds me that it's time to upgrade my skincare essentials with more moisturizing products to prevent dryness.

It will be a pampering kind of holiday because they also include a satin rob and jade roller, yay! Want to have a glowing skin this holiday season? Check out the tips I listed below :)

These products are the newest pampering partner for all those foot care needs. These 5 piece foot care products will take care of those nasty foot problems at the comfort of your own home.

Thursday, November 15, 2018

     Wearing makeup should enhance your feature, give self-esteem, and make you more beautiful. It should bring out the best in you not the stress in you! Do you have sensitive skin that prevents you from wearing makeup? I feel you because I saw how my sister’s sensitive skin reacts to makeup and it’s really bad! Red and itchy bumps appear after application that's why she's forced to wash her face immediately.

     She's been struggling for years in finding the right brand that will not irritate her skin. There are brands in the market that cater to individuals who have sensitive skin but it's not budget friendly and offers limited color selection. Fast forward today, a European brand has landed on Philippine shores- Bell HYPOAllergenic or Bell Cosmetics. It is a hypoallergenic line that uses very gentle formulas and high-quality ingredients for their products. Know more about Bell HYPOAllergenic after the jump and the sensitive skin's must-haves :)

Product Review: Eternity Rose 24 Karat Gold Dipped Rose

Monday, November 05, 2018

     The most wonderful time of the year is fast approaching and one of the things that make it more exciting is shopping for gifts. I presume that everyone has a list and written on it are the possible gift/s that he/she will receive. What if that person on the list already has everything? This is one of the dilemmas that I also encounter when buying a gift- what to give?

     When giving a gift, I always consider three things: something that is unique, useful, or one that will last a lifetime. There are so many useful items and a wide selection of unique gift items to give but there's one thing that I recently discovered, 24 Karat Gold Dipped Rose from Eternity Rose- a beautiful and one of a kind gift that will last a lifetime. YES! A natural rose that is dipped in 24 karat gold. More details about the product after the jump.

Where to Eat In Lucban, Quezon the Korean Way? Dun-ai!

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

     "E di sa Dun-ai"!!! Prolly you've heard this or don't. But for Lucbanins (native of Lucban, Quezon Province), the expression 'doon ai'/'dun-ai' means doon or there when someone asks the question "where?". So when someone asks you "where to eat in Lucban the Korean Way? The no-brainer answer is Dun-ai! Yes, at Dun-ai Hotel and Restaurant.

     Dun-ai Hotel and Restaurant is a local lodging and restaurant located across Kamay ni Hesus. It started its operation last 2017 as a hotel to accommodate guests traveling to Lucban, Quezon for the purpose of visiting Kamay ni Hesus- a healing church founded by Fr.

Feature: Star Margarine App-My Star Kid Adventure

Thursday, September 27, 2018

     When I was a kid, my grandmother would always tell me to sleep early and eat nutritious food so that I will grow healthy and tall. The default height increasing vitamin in our house is Star Margarine. I always see her mixing a tablespoon of the yellow colored spread in our rice or in my pandesal.

     I miss my grandmother, looking back at the past, methinks they are really doing their best to give everything that we need in order to grow happy and healthy. Life is so simple back then compared to a complicated life we have now. Modern technology is already a part of our lives and kids these days are so into gadgets and gaming consoles that in some situations, it hinders important aspect of their childhood- healthy eating habits and brain development. BUT, I discovered an app that will show you the brighter side of technology- learning while having fun with Star Margarine App- My Star Kid Adventure!

Product Review: Danarra Aromatherapy Oil

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

     Stress is already a part of us. It is inevitable but we can manage it in different ways. Let's take for example the Filipino workers with 9-6 pm jobs. Their day begins with an average of two-hour commute to the office and another two-hour commute to get home. Can you see the picture? Days begin with stress and ends with stress!

     I'm a stay at home mom and I'm experiencing stress too! From daily routine house chores to parenting and daughter duties, I experience stress every day. To keep me sane, I look for ways on how to cope and manage it. Some people enjoy a nice dessert, go for a workout, watch a movie, or spend time with friends and family. These are effective but not accessible immediately, right? There's one thing that young professionals including me have in our bags or pockets- a soothing balm that comes in many forms. The trending now- aromatherapy oil!

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

      I presume that you've read my thoughts on Esfolio Super Rich Coconut Toner last week. My apologies for not introducing first the entire line before making a review. Anyhoo, this set from Esfolio is promising especially if you have mature, dry, and dull skin. The superstar ingredient in each product is the coconut oil and many swears by its health benefits.

      Coconut oil has a lot of benefits and if you'll make a research, it is used in different natural beauty products for its antibacterial and antifungal property. It's an excellent moisturizer and smells so nice too. Never thought that a skincare product with coconut oil would smell divine. So without further ado, know more about Esfolio's Super Rich Coconut Line below.

15 Minutes of Bonding #15MinuteCalpolChallenge

Monday, August 20, 2018

     Time is essential for a stay-at-home/part-time mommy blogger like me. It’s always a ‘so little time so much’ to do kind of day every day. That’s why if I have a spare time, I always make sure to bond with Kenzo even if it’s only 15 minutes.

     During the rainy season, it is extra challenging for moms to think of activities to do with their kids because doing anything outdoors is almost always out of the picture. With the limited time combined with the uncooperative weather, this significantly reduces their choices in making memorable experiences. Quality time with the kids is important and paracetamol brand Calpol shares some rainy days bonding activities that will brighten the gloomy mood.

Saturday, July 07, 2018

     A tummy ache is one of the problems that my son had experienced while growing up. He has a sensitive stomach and it's a pain to see him vomit after eating or drinking that gives the tummy big trouble. Kids tend to have a higher risk of getting digestive health-related diseases such as diarrhea and constipation from harmful bacteria.

   I've experienced a lot of tummy aches in the past too that's why I know the feeling- uncomfortable and mood changing. It's like I just want to sleep all day if possible and no food and drink at all. Sigh.  As a parent, this scenario causes emotional stress and I really don't want to see my son experiencing any kind of discomfort. Like experts say, prevention is better than cure so an everyday supplement to lessen or manage stomach pain is recommended.

Tuesday, July 03, 2018

     Have you heard about the latest skincare craze in Korea? If you're a fan of K beauty, I presume that you know what I'm talking about- glass skin. Koreans are going cray cray to have a glass skin and in order to achieve that, investment in the right products is a must even if it's expensive plus the fact that they have a nice weather, right?

     I'm not against glass skin. Who doesn't want a youthful and glowing skin, so smooth and radiant like a glass? Of course, I want that but I'm having second thoughts if this is achievable by using their suggested products because one thing is for sure- it's not compatible with our hot and humid weather. But hey, ladies of the tropics are still lucky because there are skin care products that can make skin radiant and fresh. Enter Goodal Green Tangerine- a skin care line perfect for summer!

     Yes, you've read that right! Our favorite one-stop all K-beauty shop now has a skincare line. The Althea Bare Essentials skincare line was launched last April and many beauty enthusiasts gave their thumbs up in this simplified Korean skincare regimen.

Althea strips down to the bare essentials with this new skincare line. Riding on today’s current minimalism movement, Althea’s Bare Essentials focuses on skincare fundamentals and drops all the non-essentials.
