Divisoria Shopping Failed

Failed shopping in Divisoria.

Today, I decided to head to one of the so-called shopping haven in Metro Manila which is Divisoria. And behold, a lot of cheap make-up tools are being sold.

I took home a set of make-up brushes with super soft bristles (I haven't used it on my face yet. I need to clean them first before trying on my face), and a make-up sponge.

 

But after I purchased the make-up brush, that's the time when I realized that my successful haul was failed. 😦 Head on to my youtube channel to find out why – Click here to find out why.

[REVIEW] Deja Poo 

“The feeling that you’ve done this before. Only this time, it smells better” – Keeva Essentials. 

A tag line which catches every toilet-conscious people who wishes to, as much as possible, leave their only trace inside the throne. And leave like nothing happened – and yes *raising my hands up*, ME – GUILTY. 🤣


Keeva Essentials had a very wise idea of coming up such magical potion. The packaging is a spritz-spray, thick plastic container, with a classy, chiq design that looks more a lot like a perfume. It’s very handy, thus, making the product travel friendly. 


A detailed instruction has been included in the container.


The product expiry date has also been included as well.

I got the mint scent, a subtle mint which reminds me the scent of tic tac mints. Just imagine how my p😍 smells like. 

Verdict: The product is VERY EFFECTIVE, and very worth it for the price at P235. But I got it on sale for around P170+.

[REVIEW] Avon Magic Liptint

There’s been a hype in koreans “gradient” lips. 

Me, having a tight budget, tends to look for a cheap liptint to achieve the korean gradient lips look.

Without further ado, let me introduce you to my recent discovery! Avon Lip tint.


Container: It’s made of a plastic. Not the cheap plastic, but it’s a thick plastic container.

It comes in white. It’s smooth, likes petroleum gel, but not sticky. The scent reminds me of candy.

I got KBM01 (snow pink)

Swatch:

Bare lips


Lips with tint


Perfect and can be worn everyday. Can also be “MLBB”. It lasts 3-4hrs (eating and drinking included).

It retails in the PH at P99.00 which approx $2 dollars. If you’re interested, contact your nearest avon lady now 🙂 

[REVIEW] Maybelline Strobing Stick

Im not really a fan of make-up, but I think this will become the reason why I’ll start checking for cosmetics. 

Maybelline Philippines is currently holding it’s sale, and I found this cute strobing stick. It’s currently being sold for 399 or around 8$. 

I noticed that the box has japanese characters on it, and indicated that it’s by facestudio. 


I wanted to purchase nyx illuminator, but it’s pricey compared to Maybelline, however, when I both swatch it, they both have the same shimmer. (I wasnt able to take a photo of the comparison swatch). Anyway, here’s how my skin looks like without the product. (Raw photo)

And here’s how it looks like (2 swipes) – (Raw photo)


Here’s a short video to show the shimmer in front of the light. Im sorry for the noise, it’s the raw video 🙂


​And here’s how it looks like when I blended out the product 🙂 — another raw video. 

I’ll let you decide. Tell me your thoughts 🙂 ❤️

[REVIEW] The SAEM Cover Perfection tip Concealer

I was searching for a good concealer, preferably a Korean concealer as their products haven’t failed me yet. Then I came across with one of Morgan’s youtube. She was citing all her best Korean hauls, then I saw this concealer. I’ve also read some reviews and found that it’s really a good concealer. So I decided to get one myself.

What got me attracted is the SPF 28/PA++ stated in the tube of the concealer. SPF (Sun Protection Factor) this is the protection from UVB rays and PA++ is for UVA protection. In our dear Earth, we really need SPF and PA++ , a much needed protection from the harmful UV rays. How amazing is that?


Let’s get on the product itself. The concealer comes in a plastic thin tube. I’ve accidentally threw it on the floor, and I hear a loud bounced noice (that was “fresh from mail” moment, which literally means that I haven’t opened the seal yet, and my heart skipped a bit.) which luckily, didn’t break the concealer.

The applicator of the product comes in a wand with a slanted sponge tip, which makes it easier to apply, and easier to control.


The product comes in creamy texture. It doesn’t dry easily which really makes the concealer easier to blend.


When I blended the product, I noticed that it easily coats the skin. 1 swipe for medium coverage (kindly refer to the image below) and double swipe for a heavier coverage. 

 

Tip: I suggest you to use a make-up remover when washing away the concealer off your skin. It doesn’t come out using a soap and a sponge.

All in all. I love the product. It doesn’t look cakey, it doesn’t crease. When I applied it under my eyes, my under eyes still looks like a part of my real skin! It also last long, even if I washed my face. And oh, it’s cheap. It’s 300+ here in the PH, roughly around $7-8 US dollars.

[REVIEW] Tony Moly I’m Real Red Wine Mask

I just hoarded masks from Korean stores here in the Philippines. Honestly, I’m a bit skeptical of putting this mask in my shopping basket thinking it might do wrong on my skin,  I have a super sensitive skin. 

Nevertheless, trying out the first mask, I got the opposite result. I’m thinking maybe TonyMoly got the formulation right to the point that my skin is really loving their mask. Continue reading for my review.


For this post, I would like to review Tony Moly’s I’m real Red Wine mask. One of the reasons why I decided to get this is because of it’s pore care promise.

From TonyMoly.ph site:

1. Micro emulsion essence type mask to give moisture to skin

2. 3 layer pulp mask sheet to give deep moisture

3. Red wine extract clear pores and give silky texture

Ingredients printed on the pack:

 

Instructions in Korean. Good thing they’ve included graphical pictures for those who don’t read Hangul.

 

Instructions in English:

HOW TO USE

1. After washing face, apply mask on face.

2. 20-30 minutes later, take off the mask and tap gently the essence onto face

My Verdict:

> The serum smells good. It smells like red wine, but the sweet grape scent is stronger than of the alcohol scent.

> It half-filled my mask serum container, meaning, I can pat this all over my house tomorrow ❤


> I used a cold mask, plus used it while I’m inside a cold room (17 degree c). It actually shrink my pores and tightened it. I highlighted the cold sheet and the room as I think it also added as a factor for tightening my pores.

> Brightening of skin right after usage.

> Relaxing feeling to the point I almost slept on it.


> I didn’t experienced any breakouts, and no irritations experienced after used, only soft, moisturized and supple skin.

> No cons at all, just full of love.


> I’ll definitely repurchase, 100% sure. I recommend this mask for skin type combination, sensitive, and acne-prone skin.

> Priced at P62.40 or $1.25

Has anyone of you tried this mask? How was it? Did your skin love it too? Can you share your current favorite masks in the comment section? 🙂 Thanks! ❤

And of course, I decided to give it a try. I ordered directly from L’oreal US and let it shipped directly at my doorstep. 

Charcoal mask is quite in a hype right now. Since it claims to help achieve flawless complexion and fights acne. It can be used regardless of skintype as they say it doesn’t cause any breakouts — please correct me if the information I got is wrong. Some uses activated charcoal as teeth whitening, or underarm whitening. But for this post, I used the charcoal as a mask.

Review:

1. I love how the oil is being absorbed once the mask has been dried.

2. The texture is like a fine mud which can be spread easily and sticks on the skin well.



3. After rinsing the mask off, you will see the brightening effect, and your face will be squeaky clean. 

4. I hate the smell. It smells like a strong men’s perfume. 😩 I hate it. I really hate it. 

5. I have a problem with the packaging. It’s not that sanitized as you will need to scoop the product using your fingers. No spoon provided.


6. I actually forgot how much a jar cost. 

7. Once the product dried, the mask can be easily washed off by using water. After the mask has been washed off, I proceeded in my pm routine. 

Video below shows my skin after using the mask. ​​


Will I buy again? No. I really hate the scent. 😦
