Shiseido Speedy Perfect Whip - Review

I'm having crappy internet connection, sorry for the delayed posts.  The Shiseido Perfect Whip became so popular in social media and as I stated before in my Biore Uru Uru Wash, I'm a bit lazy to foam it up into a whip.

I got excited and I bought this Shiseido Speedy Perfect whip.

This comes in a simple blue dispenser.

Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream Review

One of my favorite youtuber is TheBeautyBreakdown loved this and then the next day, I saw Anne Clutz's video of her reviewing this BB cream.  So I bought one and tried it myself.

Isn't is just the cutest bottle ever?! It's a frosted glass with jelly like shape.

Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask vs Lip Balm

I've read mixed reviews for this sleeping lip mask.  Others loved it so much while others thought of this as just a glorified lip balm.

The price is really steep, Php 700+ for a lip product?  Luckily, they released a trial/travel size.  When I tried this for the first time I also thought it's just a glorified lip balm, but I thought, maybe the effect will show after some time of using it.

So here's how I did the experiment (if you're in the medical field, this is called a randomized controlled trial, hahaha). I tried applying the product everynight before sleeping, then I brush my teeth and have my breakfast the next morning.  After which I take a picture of my lips.  Then I apply the same lip tint for both tests.  I wear a Soft Lips Lip Balm then The Chateau Labiotte Wine Tint for 1 whole day.  Then I remove all my makeup by the end of the day with Banila Co Clean it Zero.

In between 2 product use, there's a 1 week in between wherein I won't put on anything on my lips at night, not even lip balm.  Just the Soft Lips Lip Balm in the morning before the wine tint.

For this test, I chose Burt's Bees Soothing Lip Balm as the Contender.  I find this lip balm very soothing to my lips when they're irritated from the lip products.

Before we begin, this is my lip profile: DRY! Chapped everyday.

Ever Bilena Eyeshadow Palette (Pink) - Review

I think I just put this off too long that it's 1 yr already.  I started using this palette last year when it was released.  I love using this palette, since it's great for everyday use.

Plastic packaging, with clear plastic cover and black plastic bottom.

Etude House Berry Delicious Cream Blusher - Review

As I was destashing my makeup, I realized that my Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher (Grapefruit Jelly) is already 2 years old.  I guess I have to change it since it's beginning to get itchy when I'm applying it.  It's just that I love how the Cookie Blusher looked on me, it's like I got too comfortable with it that I didn't even think of buying a new blusher.

Well obviously, I wanted my new blusher to be from Etude House again.  But I want a new line of blusher, since I want to try something new.

Packaging Pink plastic packaging, no mirror in the back of the cover, there's a very cute strawberry print on the cover a well.

There are I think only 3 shades of this line.  Mine is PK001.

Peripera Wholly Deep Liner Marker - Review

I have to be guilty for not making a review for this eyeliner.  This was my go-to eyeliner for 1 whole year.  The performance is just so satisfying.

Packaging Black plastic pen like packaging.  There's a ball inside so you can shake it like a correction pen.

The tip is a brush tip.  I love how the brush is soft but not too soft that you'll have trouble in lining your eyes.  It's firm just the right firmness.

Learning from a Baby

Today is my birthday, on a Sunday and luckily not on duty.  I originally planned on spending time with my family, probably lunch.  We already picked out a restaurant, and this will be a triple celebration for my younger sister's birthday and my dad's birthday as well.

But all the plans crumbled down when I was told by my senior, that we have to attend the PURA Strategic Planning.  Of course I can no longer control or predict my time since I have no idea how long the planning will be.  So we just cancelled our plans and wait til further notice before organizing the next family time.

So I was sad, I'm to spend my time away from my loved ones on my special day.  
We attended the Strategic Planning in Subic, Saturday night.  The planning went on smoothly.

Morning came of my birthday and I woke up earlier than the others.  And I stepped out of my room and walked around, still feeling lonely without my loved ones.

As I was walking I saw a mother with a baby.  We'll call the baby, Baby Joaquin.  I approached them and said good morning po and played with Baby Joaquin.  Baby Joaquin is a friendly baby, he did not cry when I carried him.

Too Cool for School Artclass by Rodin Highlighter Review

As stated in my previous post, I was disappointed at first when I received this in my mail, since it was broken.  Luckily it was fixed temporarily: How to fix Frozen Highlighter.

I got intrigued of highlighters, since I love sparkles  and glitters 😆.   But I think I prefer a more natural look of highlighter since I don't want to look too shiny.

This is my first highlighter, since at first I thought it's not really necessary since my bb cushion gives me the "dewy" look. But I wanted to try to experience a highlighter, so when I saw this product from Edward Avila and he's recommending this as a subtle highlighter, and it gives you a more natural look I bought one.

Packaging This comes in a black plastic compact with sticker on the cover.  It's sturdy and relatively thin than most palettes.  The cover has a mirror behind it.

Biore Uru Uru 2-in-1 Instant Foaming Wash - Review

There was a time last year that "foaming" wash became a trend in my instagram.  It's said to be really gentle and doesn't strip away moisture from your face and these are especially helpful for people with dry skin type.  During that time Shisheido Foaming Wash was the popular one.   But I thought it's too tedious to make a foam and it's time-consuming.  I'm just too lazy to make a foam before I wash my face.

So when I was walking around Watson's, I saw this foam wash from Biore and I was intrigued by it.  So I bought it.

This comes in a very cute pink dispenser.  Everything in this packaging is just so cute!!!

The Face Shop Blanclouding White Moisture Cream - First Impressions

This has been in my stash for a long time.  I actually forgot about this and when I was organizing my makeup stuffs, I came across of this again.  I got this as a freebie from one of my purchases in an online shop (Sorry I can't remember...)

This is just a sample sachet, so I won't comment on the packaging.  I love the little oblong on the right side though, it looks like glowing hehe.

Smells really good! Like clean scent with a little hint of citrus.
The consistency is creamy (well duh? It's a cream hahaha.)

How to Fix Broken Highlighter Palette

I was so excited to check my mail last night,  well because a package arrived.  I bought a highlighter palette which was raved about in social media, the Too Cool For School Artclass by Rodin Highlighter Palette.  But to my horror, when I opened the palette, it was BROKEN!  The courier must have dropped it during delivery... 😟

So here's how the palette looked like when I opened it.
