Althea Korea Holiday Makeup Boxes 2016

Who's excited for some more holiday shopping?

IKR? As much as I know that I'd have to work extra as soon as the holidays are over, it's nearly impossible to stop one's self from shopping with all the amazing sales going on! And you guys know I love KBeauty sales!

This holiday season, Althea Korea has started offering curated beauty boxes. They've actually started earlier last month with body care box (such as the Althea Super Food Box), hair care box, and more. While I was truly happy shopping the other beauty boxes, I'm ecstatic and can't wait to unbox my orders of the Althea Korea Holiday Makeup boxes below!

Althea Korea Holiday Makeup Boxes 2016



I'm really bummed that it was too late when I discovered this sale. The Althea Korea Holiday Makeup boxes 1 and 2 were already sold out. Luckily, the Althea Korea Holiday Makeup Glitter Box is still available, YEY!


Althea Korea Launches NEW Mobile App! Shop with Discount!

Yasssss! Mobile shoppers rejoice!

Ehem, ehem...okay, just Kbeauty mobile shoppers then :)

Excuse my jubilant mood because I've just found out that my favorite online store for all Korean Beauty items now has an app!

Not just that, but with this great news also comes some great discounts!

Althea Korea Launches NEW Althea Korea Mobile App



Who wouldn't want to shop some Kbeauty favorites at the palm of their hands and get more for less too?

No one!

Tis the Season to be SEPHORA Glammin

Yasss! Holidays are just around the corner! Who's as excited as I am?

Some of you have been requesting me to do a holiday makeup look at the PinayBeautyAndStyle YouTube Channel and some are also requesting for a Sephora Philippines haul video. I've got y'all covered girls!

While all of my Sephora hauls as of now have been featuring stuff I bought from Sephora US, I'm more than ready to turn over a new leaf and shop closer to home.

Truth be told, the only reason why I haven't been shopping at Sephora Philippines was because I was thinking that they won't have the items I want and that the parcels will have to be picked up at the post office. Boy, I was wrong!

So just to let y'all know, Sephora Philippines delivers straight to your doorstep!

Yep! No long lines at the customs office and no trips to the post office. Isn't that great?

Tis the Season to be SEPHORA Glammin


Oh yeah! With everything said, I believe that Tis the Season to be SEPHORA Glammin indeed!

I was thinking of making this a surprise (via YouTube) but hey, I thought it would be fun to give blog readers a sneak peek of what I've been eyeing at Sephora Philippines.

NEW Fashion 21 TWIST EYE PENCIL Review with Swatches per Set and GIVEAWAY!

Hello everyone! I know that some of you are waiting for another blog giveaway (we have an ongoing one at YOUTUBE too!) and I hear you! Before we go on to that, though, let's first talk about the new Fashion 21 Twist Eye Pencil sets below!

NEW Fashion 21 TWIST EYE PENCIL SETS



Yep! Your eyes are not kidding you! The Fashion 21 Twist Eye Pencils now come in more affordable 3-pencil sets!

What's great with this is that you won't have to guess anymore which Fashion 21 Twist Eye Pencils to use together to create a certain look. The F21 eye pencil sets are also about 50 pesos cheaper as compared to when you're buying the pencils separately because each set retails for only P250 pesos!

NEW Fashion 21 TWIST EYE PENCIL Review

Yes, I'm Lazy! Should I Let Someone Else Do My Dirty Jobs?

If there's one thing that I hate when it comes to living on my own, it would be cleaning up after myself. Oh yes! I hate dusting and vacuuming with a passion!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a slob. It's just that when you're traveling all the time or have a very mentally exhausting job, dusting and vacuuming are probably not ranking very high on your priorities (at least for me)

photo grabbed from Wikipedia commons

I'm also not a very patient person. 

Sure, you've seen me do DIY home decorating on YouTube, or perhaps have seen some of my beauty hacks and all that...but hey, that's different! That involves a bit of creativity and not really repetitive...unlike having to clean my own place :(

Johnson's Milk+Oats Super Skin Transformation (New at SampleRoomPh!)

I haven't really shared any baby care products in this blog...and that's just because I don't have a little one yet (unless you count in puppies and kittens!). Well, things are going to change today because one of my favorite new baby products has already been launched!

Meet the new Johnson's Milk+Oats™ Bath and Lotion and the Active Kids™ Shiny Drops™ Shampoo!


As of this writing, I've only tried the Johnson's Milk+Oats™ Baby Lotion  and the Active Kids™ Shiny Drops™ Shampoo once so I can't say much about them yet...however. I've used the Johnson's Milk+Oats™ Baby Bath to help soothe my sunburnt skin a few weeks ago and have used it since then each time I feel that my skin needs some TLC. I guess you can say that these new Johnson's products aren't just for kids, eh?

The New Zenutrients Gugo Shampoo and Conditioner Plus the Zenutrients Muscle Mend Roll and Balm!

Indulge and delight your senses with Mother Nature’s touch of goodness from Zenutrients!

That's the tagline that first got my attention when I heard about the Filipino skin and body care brand Zenutrients.


I've first discovered Zenutrients thru Sampleroom.ph and now I'm so delighted to share with you that more Zenutrients products are up for free sampling.

So What's New with Zenutrients?


Loreal Micellar Water VS Maybelline Micellar Water Review and Demo

A lot of you liked my review of the Maybelline Micellar Water a few weeks ago, so now that Loreal launched their very own micellar water in the Philippines, I opted to do a comparison video of the two!





For sure I will still do a separate post for the Loreal Micellar Water but I do know for a fact that more people out there will appreciate a comparison post. After all, this answers so many questions that some of you may have.



The video demo down below is in tagalog and I'm aware that most of the readers of this blog do not watch my vlogs because I usually do videos in my native language. Fear not! I'm pretty sure that the video is clear enough for everyone to appreciate it despite the dialect/language used.

Anywhoo, let's talk about some details first, shall we?

The Loreal Micellar Water retails for 225 pesos per 250 ml at Watson's and BeautyMNL.com (where I bought mine). This means that each ML is only P0.90! 

For comparison, the Maybelline Micellar water retails for 199 pesos per 200 ml at the same stores, making each ML cost P0.09 more.

Fall Skincare Favorites 2016 (for Combination Sensitive Skin)

My favorite season is finally here! 

In case you're from somewhere else, it is officially fall (aka autumn) as of a few days ago in the northern hemisphere! I can't wait for the pumpkin pies, nut pies, weekends with pot roasts, and wearing my favorite sweaters again!

Fall Skincare Favorites 2016 (for Combination Sensitive Skin)


Too bad that my skin often starts acting up in fall...

You see, I've got sensitive acne-prone skin that oils up like a well half the time and is as dry as the Sahara some other time. 

I swear my skin has bipolar personality!

NEW #BurtsBeesFaceGoodies for ALL Your Gentle Skin Cleansing Needs!

Hey there everyone! Here we are again with another good new for Philippine-based beauty enthusiasts and #SkincarePH junkies out there! BurtsBees Philippines have collaborated with SampleRoomPh in launching their newest #skinhydration facial cleansing products in the Philippines!

#BurtsBeesFaceGoodies



The BurtsBees skincare line has a lot of products that I've been thinking of trying for a looooong time now...but for some reason, I just haven't gotten around to purchasing yet. I do have all the BurtsBees lip glosses as well as most of the BurtsBees lip balms haha!

I'm so glad when SampleRoomPh restocked the Burt's Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream and the Burt's Bees Radiance Cleanser. I grabbed some of the FREE samples at the sampleroom website and was surprised that they also sent the BurtsBees SRBeautyInsider package yay!

NEW Silka Whitening Soap with Shea Butter + FREE SAMPLE FOR EVERYONE!

Hey everyone! I've heard that some of you are looking for a whitening soap that does not dry out the skin and your prayers have been answered!

I saw this at Sampleroom's facebook..


Now, from past experience, I know for a fact that Silka's whitening lotions do the job because of nice reviews from blogger friends but as you guys know, I'm not really into skin whitening. I am already white as a ghost when I don't have fake tan on and I don't have any plans to become translucent haha! The only times I use whitening soaps and skin lightening soaps are when I want to even out my skin after getting sunburned from traveling...

Anyway, I did try the Silka Premium Whitening Lotion Green Papaya SPF 30 with Olive Oil and it helped even out my skin after my Subic trip a year ago but I somehow felt that I needed a bit more moisture because I was also exfoliating at the time. I wanted to try one that is a bit more moisturizing since I already like Silka's effect on how fast using their lotion with my other soap. While browsing at SampleRoom.Ph one day, I found out that they also have some Silka Skin Whitening Lotion with Shea Butter so I begun stalking the www.sampleroom.ph to wait for a restock coz I can't seem to find it anywhere near me...

New Ponds Acne Clear Gel (and MORE) Now on SampleRoom.Ph!

Hey, hey, hey, hello, everyone! Sampleroom.Ph restocked some amazing products (I've tried them in the past, so I know they work) and have some new ones to share with us, beauty-savvy Filipinas - The newest product from Pond's, the Pond's Acne Clear Gel!


So here are the newest launches and restocks guys:
 Unilever favorites such as the Lux Magical Spell Body Bar and Lux Magical Spell Body Wash. Plus, Silka Whitening Lotion with Shea Butter and Silka Whitening Soap also with Shea Butter. And for beautiful hair junkies out there, Cream Silk's Daily Treatment Conditioners, in variants; Dry Rescue, Standout Straight, and Hair Fall Defense

All you gotta do to avail of full-size samples is to head on to the sampleroom website, sign-in, fill your cart and check-out the items to receive your goodies! Easy-peasy, right?

NEW Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky Shampoo + Conditioner Review!

So a week ago, I blogged about receiving a PR package from SampleRoomPh as part of being a #SRBeautyInsider. They sent me some of the newest products from Head and Shoulders here!


I've used head and shoulder menthol anti-dandruff shampoo whenever my scalp starts getting itchy in the past but the faint mentholated scent of that have always reminded me of my brother's shampoo. Imagine my delight when I found these Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky shampoo and conditioner inside my parcel!

MAYBELLINE COLORSENSATIONAL CREAMY MATTE BROWN NUDES Swatches + Review (video and photos!)

Is it just me or have you also noticed that everyone is going gaga over brown lipsticks these days? The launch of these Maybelline Colorsensational Creamy Matte Brown Nude lipsticks confirmed that the above is so, so, so true!



But wait, if you're already around when the 90s rolled by, you probably think that brown lipsticks are for the emo, choker-loving tribe of fashionistas. Well these Maybelline Creamy Mattes are a whole new different type of paint peeps!

Pinay Makeup Dupes for Expensive Imported Makeups Part 1 and 2!

It's been a while since I posted one of the most successful videos on my PinayBeautyAndStyle youtube channel, the Pinay Makeup Dupes for Expensive Imported Makeups Part 1 so I decided it is time to come up with a part 2!

***Note that both videos are in tag-lish, a mixture of english and tagalog.


Guys, photos won't give the products any justice so I opted to make a video instead. You can watch the video below:

INTRODUCING: The NEW Head And Shoulders Shampoo and Conditioner!

Hi everyone! Just sharing some write up about the new Head and Shoulders Shampoo and Conditioner that was sent to me as part of a PR parcel! 

I was surprised to find out that they won 2 beauty awards in 2 consecutive years so I also tested out the Head and Shoulders Shampoo and Conditioner Smooth and Silky that was sent to me and wow! It worked a lot better than the menthol variant that I've been using for years!

SRBeautyInsider: Latest Products from SkinWhite! Their New Power Whitening Trio!

Hey, hey, hello everyone! Here is my first feature as a SampleRoom Beauty Insider - my review of the latest products from SkinWhite! I'll be sharing my sampling experience using all 3 products in the photo below so keep scrolling for the complete write-up or perhaps skip to the video :)


I've shared my SRBeautyInsider initial experience in a previous blog and now, I want to let you in on some of the latest available SkinWhite samples at SampleRoom.ph. If you're new to the concept of try-vertising, then you might want to read up my post about that here.

So let's talk about SkinWhite products, shall we?

Yasss! PinayBeautyAndStyle is Officially Part of the SampleRoom Beauty Insider Team!

Hi, everyone! A few months ago, I've shared that SampleRoom.Ph was looking for bloggers who are passionate about testing out beauty and body care products and writing about their findings on their blogs. It was the search for 5 up-and-coming bloggers to be a part of the SampleRoom Beauty Insider squad!

Okay, okay...we're not really a squad. I haven't met any of the ladies in the photo below but I'm just so thrilled to be one of the chosen ones! Naks diba?


I know this is no big deal for most. It isn't like we'll be crowned as deities of beauty reviews. I'm just grateful to be recognized for my hard work as a new beauty blogger who strives to put up only real and honest reviews.

July 2016 Philippine Beauty Haul 'TIPID EDITION' BeautyMNL.com Takatack.com Sampleroom.ph

Another month, another beauty haul! Seems like time passes so quickly right? I've only made less than 10 Filipina Beauty videos at the PinayBeautyAndStyle YouTube channel and I've been neglecting this blog too :( Too much work leaves me little time to play but nevertheless, I'm vowing to make bawi to you guys next month!

Crazy sales and crazier offers!
I know that I've mentioned in past hauls that I won't be buying more for at least a few months but hey, with crazy sales at BeautyMNL.com and Takatack.com, plus officially being named as one of the SampleRoom Beauty Insiders (hooray!), I managed to pool some stuff together to have a haul to share with you guys this month.

Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick Review and Lip Swatches | #EBMatte

Okay, okay, the Ever Bilena matte lipstick is not a new product but hey, they did have a fabulous new shade called Vivid Violet so I figured it is time to showcase my collection of 8 of these gorgeous lipsticks!

I've actually been using the Ever Bilena matte lipstick for a solid 3 or 4 years now and have had my favorites throughout the years. I've first discovered this lipstick when it was selling for just 135 pesos and now it is still very affordable at just 165 pesos a piece. Quite a bargain, eh?

Let's move on to the review :)

Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick Review


The packaging for the Ever Bilena matte lipsticks is a square-ish matte tube with the words EB Matte in silver. The same silver coloring envelopes the inner tube. It looks nice but then the silver fades after a few weeks/months. 

Maybelline Micellar Water Review and Demo

Maybelline Philippines just released one of the newest and most groundbreaking products they have, the Maybelline Micellar Water!

Okay, okay, maybe I'm just hyped about this, but if you're someone who's got sensitive, oily, and acne-prone mature skin like I do, then you probably already know how much of a difference a good makeup cleanser can do in your skin care regimen. Maybelline Micellar Water Review.


But, What is Micellar Water to Begin With?


#PerfectlyPixi #Glamourbox Unboxing! YEY!

It has been a while since GlamourBoxPh had an open subscription for a Philippine beauty box so when they posted on their social media in early of June 2016 that they'll be having a collaboration with PixiBeautyPh, I was beyond excited! 

I didn't get a chance to blog about the announcement because I was super busy at that time...plus I wasn't sure yet if the box will be worth it. The last thing I would want to do is help hype up something that I wouldn't really want to recommend to a friend so I bid my time and YASSSSSssssss, the wait for the #PerfectlyPixi #Glamourbox is totally worth it!


And just to share with you guys how much I like my Pixi by Petra Glamourbox collab beauty box, I wrote a blog!

Huge Korean Beauty Haul + Mini Reviews (ENGLISH) | Althea Korea Philippines Haul

I've debated with myself whether I'll post this blog or not but since some of my friends loved my Althea Korea video, I thought to share my real customer experience as well with you guys!



First off, I filmed a haul video because a friend of mine thought that Althea Korea Philippines is a fake site or a bit shady...her reasoning is that it seems all the people featuring the site are bloggers who got sent free stuff or are known for posting sponsored blogs (and not disclosing the said blogs are sponsored). Now, I've shopped at Althea Korea Philippines sssssoooooo many times that I know for a fact that the site is legit and that they sell authentic Korean skincare and authentic Korean cosmetics at rock-bottom prices, so here I am sharing with you this post!

Zenutrients Nourishing Olive Face Cream and Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Head to Toe Cream

I hate creams...for the most part. Creams are usually sticky, make me break out, and are simply not worth the trouble for me. This is why you'll seldom read about creams or lotions on this blog of mine. Sadly, I am not getting younger, and because I am plagued with a myriad of sensitive skin issues, using creams to address those issues is inescapable. I've been on the lookout for mild but effective cruelty-free lotions and creams because of this. I've tried so many (and that's kinda weird for someone who's not into creams to begin with) and been disappointed so many times. 

Don't you just hate it when you purchase a much raved-about product for lots of your hard-earned cash and then it turns out that the product does not want to cooperate with you? I, for one, have had my reservations about the Philippine skin care brand Zenutrients because a lot of people are hyping about their products (even though I loved their All is Well Oil and Candle) - and we all know we cannot really trust the majority of hyped reviews online these days.  Nevertheless, I admit I was really excited when they launched their Zenutrients Olive Face Cream and Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Head to Toe Cream at Sampleroom because their brand is organic and cruelty-free!

I ordered samples and hoped to the high heavens that the creams would work for me. I mean, even if they don't work like angel's tears and fresh unicorn blood, I'd be okay if they don't break me out...so yes, I was keeping my expectations low because I don't want to be brokenhearted (drama pa more!).


Truth be told, I was thinking that Zenutrients' new creams are just like any other creams out there, especially that a 100 grams tub is only 260 pesos. I mean, that's quite cheap so the products might be cheapos as well, right?

Boy, I was SO WRONG!

Yep, halleluiah people. Both the creams worked great on me!

And that is why I've broken my no-creams-review rule and wrote this piece. I've tested both the Zenutrients Olive Face Cream and Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Head to Toe Cream and loved both, so it is only right that I share the good news with you guys!

If you're looking for organic skincare in the Philippines, then this post is for you!

Zenutrients Olive Face Cream


I know, I know...I've mentioned a gazillion times before that I've got uber sensitive oily skin on my face. It isn't just the oil-slick kind of oily though, it also sports dry patches all over! Ugh! talk about difficult skin, huh?!

Again, I wasn't expecting much when I got a free sample of the Zenutrients Olive Face Cream from SampleRoomPh, but I was also hoping that it would at least be half as good as their All is Well Balm (which I love!).
the product info says that it will deeply moisturize dry skin and all you need is a pea-sized amount for your whole face. Now, I have OILY skin so I was thinking that this might make me oilier but it didn't! It actually helped control my oil.

What I usually do is wash my face, get a pea sized amount of the Zenutrients Nourishing Olive Face Cream, and massage it using circular motions all over my face. That's it! Then I go to sleep and wake up with nice skin.

I really love the fruity grapefruit scent and how light the cream is. The active ingredients are olives, avocado oils, coconut oil, and grapefruit extract. Who would have thought that they will work so great together, huh?


The sample I got is a generous 50 grams. It came in a half-filled plastic tub and looked like over processed avocado shake. The scent is very fruity, like a citrusy grapefruit clean scent that is oh-so-enticing!

Isn't it obvious that I cannot get over the scent?

NOTE: After testing it out on my inner arm (in case I've got an allergy, just to be safe), I used it as a moisturizer on my face. This was wayyyy back in May and let me just say that my tub is almost empty now. Need I say more?

 Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Head to Toe Cream


I was actually half dreading testing out the  Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Head to Toe Cream because I do not like using creams and lotions on my body. Anyway, I womaned-up (is that a word?) and used some on my arms and legs after shaving. 

The experience was amaze-balls!

It soothed my dry and sunburnt skin on my arms and legs at that time. I've actually managed to use up the whole 50 grams sample in just 3 days...but I was slathering it all over my whole body day and night, hahah!

I'm awaiting when the Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Head to Toe Cream will be available at Takatack or BeautyMNL because I usually just get their products online. If you're reading this and know where I can order this, please let me know how I can get this online :)

A Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Skin Saver Cream is available at BeautyMNL but I am not sure if they are the same thing...

Anyway, the active ingredients for this product are calendula extract, coconut, and aloe. The product info says that this is safe for sensitive skin (whohoo!) and can also be used by people with eczema and/or psoriasis.

The scent is so mild and does not feel sticky after you perspire. This is always a dealbreaker for me but thankfully, the Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Head to Toe Cream does not do that so yey!

I simply massage this all over my body after bathing. I also use the cream on my dry spots. I've exiled myself at an air-conditioned room for the month of May and had dry spots because of that.


Overall, I give both creams a solid 11 out of 10, ahahah!

I'm actually getting addicted to Zenutrients products now. I have a whole stash of their All is Well balm and now I want to try more of their products.

Which ones should I try next?

By the way, I googled them and here is link to their website:

Zenutrients Website <----- CLICK HERE



Guys, as of writing this blog, I saw that there are still around 20 FREE SAMPLES each of the Zenutrients Olive Face Cream and Zenutrients Aloe and Calendula Head to Toe Cream at Sampleroom.Ph

You can grab a sample of the Zenutrients Nourishing Olive Face Cream <--- HERE

Olay Regenerist #5NightsChallenge - Updated for #Olay28DayChallenge

Hi, guys! If you've been hanging around this blog or my channel for awhile, then you probably already know that I am addicted to doing try-it-with-me sort of reviews. This is why I am so excited to share this newest skincare find of mine and yup! It comes with the #OlayNightRitual #5NightsChallenge!

Update: see my #Olay28DayChallenge in YouTube too! Video at the end of this blog.

Truth be told, I've been hearing about the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence and the Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream for a while but I was in denial thinking that maybe I'm not 'that old' yet to start using with an anti-aging skincare routine...but who are we kidding? I'm in my 30s and I should have started about a decade ago!

Anyway, Olay partnered with SampleRoomPh to launch their newest product combination in the Philippines, the Olay Regenerist Night Ritual Duo, and I was one of the few lucky bloggers who got to try it out a few days in advance of you guys!


Wait, it gets even MORE exciting! We were asked to try out the Olay Regenerist Night Ritual Duo and take the #5NightsChallenge as part of the #SRBeautyInsider search, and of course, share what our findings are. 

Ever Bilena Eyeshadow Palette in BROWN Swatches and First Impressions Review + VIDEO!

You guys liked my review of the Ever Bilena Eyeshadow Palette in Pink so here I am sharing with you my thoughts on the BROWN palette!

The brown palette piqued my interest because it seems to be all-matte from photos on Instagram and since I picked up the pink one, it just makes sense to go ahead and get the sister palette for review and swatches, right?

Like the pink palette, this one goes for only 150 pesos and has 6 shades with more than a gram of product per shade. The packaging is sleek and very travel-friendly. I even liked the sponge tip applicator that comes with it!

Ever Bilena Eyeshadow Palette in BROWN Swatches and First Impressions Review + VIDEO!



Here is how it looks like in the box together with it's pink sister. Aren't they cute?

Makeup Revolution Blush Goddess Palette Swatches

I know this is only my first post about Makeup Revolution products but I legit freakin LURRVVVV the brand! Not only do they make awesome dupes for really highend makeups, they make outstanding new products as well!

My favorite from them is their line of blush palettes and their highlighters. Girl, if you're all about that Jeffree Starr and Jaclyn Hill level of glow, you need to checkout Makeup Revolution's highlighters!

Okay, let's get back to their blush palettes. They've recently launched the new Makeup Revolution blush and highlight palette in Blush Goddess and oh my blush goodness, it is so drool-worthy!

I got dirty makeup hands :P

The palette contains 4 highlighters and 4 blushes that are oh-so-very-cute and highly pigmented.

Can we take a moment to appreciate the dramatic change in packaging for this palette (and it's twin sister, the Blush Queen palette)? The usual packaging for Makeup Revolution's face palettes are just a sleek black case but this time, they opted to have a huge window in front of the palette so you can see what's inside. I super love this because I have quite a few of their products and it can take a while to find the palette I want because they used to all look the same. Great job, Makeup Revolution!

I Want to Become Sample Room's next Beauty Insider

If you've been a subscriber at the PinayBeautyAndStyle YouTube channel for a while, then you probably already know how much I love SampleroomPh! I discovered them via BeautybyTellie's blog late last year and from the first free sample I got, I was hooked!

Photo shows my biggest beauty and Filipina skincare finds from SampleRoomPh. Yep! They have organic skincare and luxe products for sampling too!
Before I go on and talk about why I want to become Sample Room's next Beauty Insider, I'll let you in first on the reasons why I got hooked on their website and the revolutionary sampling service they offer below!

Ever Bilena Eyeshadow Palette in Pink Swatches and First Impressions Review + VIDEO!

I've been absent from blogging lately because of crazy work schedule and I know I owe you guys A LOT of reviews! I'm starting off this review spree with a first impressions review and swatches of the Ever Bilena eyeshadow palette in pink!

I've been seeing this palette all over Instagram but I held off from purchasing one for a while because I already have a lot of neutral eyeshadow palettes. That is... until the day when one of my students asked me if I am wearing this palette. I was wearing my Lorac Unzipped Gold at that time and my student remarking that she noticed my makeup did not budge for a whole day of lecture and thinking that I am wearing this Ever Bilena palette piqued my interest. I was like, "okay Andie, time for you to check this out!". At Watson's that day, I was surprised to find out that the palette is only 150 pesos. I was thinking that it would be around 300-500ish ***inner scream YEY!*** so, happy with my find, I paid for the palette without swatching and got back to my hotel

***I'm a nurse review lecturer by the way, so I am often on the road.

I actually forgot about the palette until I got back home and noticed it when I was unpacking. Lo and behold! It is prettiness galore!

First time swatching it the morning I got home. Can you hear the halleluiah in the background?
O.M.G! My heart and my eyes lit up. SOOOOOO shining, shimmering, splendid!

My Fave Body and Skincare Products + SampleroomPh Review


Hi, everyone! Some of you have emailed have about my SampleRoomPh video and the Sampleroom VIP membership blog I posted a while back asking which products I loved and if signing up is indeed worth it. Since it seems that I'd be getting more emails in the future, I figured that I should just film a video to address both. Oh, yeah! I'm all about hitting two birds with one stone :)

***no birds were harmed for this blog by the way!

Because I love you guys, below is my video on my current favorite body and skincare products that are locally available. Yes, I got to try most of them via Sampleroomph, so I thought, why not share the love and just combine it with my SampleRoom review?

Everybody and their mother (on YouTube) have been raving about how great the Nivea Post Shave Balm as a primer, but if you're a gal from the Philippines or somewhere in Southeast Asia, chances are, Nivea does not sell it locally. What a bummer, right?

Body Acne Causes, Treatment and Tips (with Back Acne Info too!) PART 1

Back Acne, oh the horror! This skin predicament usually rears its ugly head when the weather is warming up and you'll be showing more of your skin. Don't you wish that you're more equipped to handle back acne?

My back acne and body acne story video in YouTube, with tips, tricks, and backgrounder in TAGALOG

That's what I wished years ago, when I had zero inkling regarding what back acne is, how to prevent, what treatment options are available for me, and what back acne tips actually work. Fast forward to now and I still get mini body acne and back acne breakouts, but not as crazy as I used to get. So, what's my secret?

Maybelline Super BB Cream with Super Cover First Impressions | Tagalog Tuesdays

It's been a while since I last posted but I've been churning videos on the Pinay Beauty and Style Youtube channel like crazy! I mean it, it's like a vlogmas sort of thing for this month only that the videos are all about beauty finds, Philippine online shopping deals, mini and fast reviews, plus a ton of first impressions. I normally won't be giving myself an obvious pat in the back but after my twin lappy disaster (it happened the day after my first blog), I think that being committed to upload videos using just my ipodtouch/phone nearly everyday is quite a feat!


Anyway, I've finally embraced making tagalog and taglish videos, in fact, I now have Tagalog Thursdays and the video down below will be a part of my Tagalog Tuesdays series, yey!



yo, check out my screencap, that BB Cream be looking goooooooooood!


Now, I love Maybelline. I'm a Maybelline baby all the way y'all! It's why I got super excited upon hearing that one of their new BB creams is going to be available in the Philippines. Maybelline is one of the brands that kind of really thinks about the products they launch or make available per country or region. I really like that about them but that also means that some great products may not be available locally. They have stuff that's only available in the US (they haven't launched the matte poreless line in the Philippines as far as I know) and products that are only available in India and Thailand - this Maybelline Super BB Cream!






My first impressions video review above is in tagalog/taglish, but I am planning to do an english version. I also tried looking for a flash photo from the event I attended that day but all I can find are cellphone photos using no flash so not sure about how it looks like under flash photography. I will update this post when I get to that.

Now let's talk about the BB Cream!


*pros
-medium coverage
-stays on my skin for 8 hours without retouching
-does not make me oil up
-does not make me break out
-feels nice and silky, very light
-I've only been using the product for a week so I will still update this

*cons
-only two shades are available (natural and medium)
-not in stores yet, I bought mine from the beautyMNL website because the company only made a soft launching
-it is a bit pricey at 399 pesos plus shipping
-I've only been using the product for a week so I will still update this

So far that's all I can say about the product. It is very promising though so I will continue trying it out and post an update :)

Let's stay connected!

EB Advance Matic Lipstick Review + First Impressions | #PinayBeautyAndStyle

Annnnnddddd I am back with a first impressions review featuring another local drugstore makeup. This time, I am featuring the EB Advance Matic Lipstick, yey! Just a heads up, the video I took (you'll see it at the latter part of this post) was kind of an impromptu slash spur-of-the-moment thing but I think it did capture the essence of a first impressions review so I am sharing it with all of you!



EB Advance Blushing Cheeks Review VS Ever Bilena Blush Glow Review

I remember the first time I've tried some Ever Bilena products years and years ago. At that time, I was under the impression that their products are not good because they are quite cheap (aka affordable) and of course I got so surprised after trying some of their products out and realizing that I have been missing out on a lot of great drugstore makeups!

So far, I've tested out some of their eyeshadow palettes, their dual ended mascara, some of their blushes, and loved the EB Advance BB Cream and Two Way Cake. I remember falling in love with the Ever Bilena cheek and lip tint as well...the one that comes in a tube with a long spout. You can totally do a korean look with that product and it is only 125 pesos!

Okay, before I go on raving about some other Ever Bilena and EB advance makeups I've tried, I'll cut that chit chat short for now and focus on one of the newest products from their company that I've been testing out for the past few days.

Both products I am featuring today are actually a part of my Pinay Summer Essentials Haul at Watsons. I was originally only supposed to review and blog about the EB Advance Blushing Cheeks tint, but I got requests from some susbcribes to do a comparison with a similar product, the Ever Bilena Blush Glow tint...so here I am with this FULL DAY try on review for both!

EB Advance Blushing Cheeks and Ever Bilena Blush Glow Full Day Comparison Review
I did film a full day review video for the EB Advance Blushing Cheeks and Ever Bilena Blush Glow Full Day Wear Test and Comparison review but I just thought adding photos to this post would be great for those who would rather see photos than videos.
