Revlon ColorStay Endless Glow Highlighter Swatches and Review - Liquid Highlighter for the Holidays!

I've always been a fan of highlighters. I have an unhealthy number of highlighter reviews on this blog for someone who is only a casual makeup wearer. I also happen to have more than 100 different highlighters in different formulas and forms. Yeah, it's embarrassing, haha! Anyway, I'm not bragging. I'm just establishing the fact that I've always been a highlighter person even though I don't wear them that much. There is just something about things that are shining, shimmering, and splendid that leaves dazzled and wanting more! My favorite highlighters are usually in powder form, though, because I find cream and liquid highlighters a bit cumbersome to use...until I met Revlon ColorStay Endless Glow Highlighter!

Revlon Colorstay Lifeproof Foundation Stick Review - The Foundation for Philippine Weather!

I'm not usually a fan of foundation sticks because they don't work on my oily dehydrated skin so it took me a while before I decided to take Revlon Colorstay Lifeproof Foundation Stick for a spin. Major regret because it turned out really good!

Revlon Colorstay Lifeproof Foundation Stick Review - The Foundation for Philippine Weather!

Revlon Colorstay Lifeproof Foundation Stick Review

Yep, I've said it. THIS is the foundation for Philippine weather! I usually take a long time to post reviews because I don't like posting reviews about products that I've only tried once or twice so rest assured I've used this for about a week before publishing this review on Revlon ColorStay LifeProof Foundation Stick. 

EB Advance Absolute Matte Lipstick Review and ALL Swatches by Ever Bilena

EB Advance Absolute Matte Lipstick is what my matte lipstick dreams are made of! I've always talked about having dry lips and how I'm no longer a fan of drying formulas. I don't like shine and gloss either so it isn't very easy for me to find lip products that I really like. This is why I am giving the EB Advance Absolute Matte Lipsticks my seal of approval.

EB Advance Lip Define Swatches and Updated Review - New Makeup Ever Bilena 2019!

My first EB Advance Lip Define Swatches and Review was published a year ago when they were first launched by Ever Bilena. Fast forward to November 2019 and they've released 3 new beautiful shades. Welcome Cashmere Blush, Muted Coral, and Stripped Sepia into the EB Advance Lip Define family!

EB Advance Lip Define Swatches and Updated Review - New Makeup Ever Bilena 2019!



There are so many new makeup from Ever Bilena lately. Some of my orders I haven't even opened yet and I still have new ones from the 12.12 sale at Lazada. 


The 3 new shades come in the same packaging format and formula as the EB Advance Lip Define lippies released before so you get the same comfortable and long-lasting easy-to-apply chubby pencil.

EB Advance Spotlight Highlighter Review Plus ALL the Ever Bilena Highlighter Swatches!

EB Advance Spotlight Highlighter Review is here! It's been a loooong time since I last dropped a makeup review because I've been so busy with life and all. Ever Bilena woke me up with a new highlighter shade. I can't believe it has been almost 2 years since they've released EB Advance Glow Out Highlighter shades Strobe and Candlelight. A few weeks ago, they've released their newest shade called Spotlight.

Caronia's Exquisite Collection - Nail Color for Holidays 2019!

December is just a few days away and I'm really hyped up for all the holiday get-togethers. Part of me feels dyahe because it means meeting people I haven't seen for a while and they'll surely scrutinize every part of my look or outfit, including my nails!

Caronia's Exquisite Collection - Nail Color for Holidays 2019!



I've been very busy lately so I have almost no time to take care of myself. I also don't have time to go to nail salons and the like to have my nails done. Thankfully, there are trusted nail polish brands like Caronia. I've been using Caronia nail polish for more than 2 decades so I'm sure their products deliver exactly what I want when I am crunched for time. Love the colors for this collection too!

Tried a Hydrogen Soap! Hyggee All-In-One H2 Soap Review

I don't usually review soaps because soap reviews are boring, haha! The reason why I am reviewing this hydrogen soap from Hyggee is because it truly works! I thought that hydrogen skin care is just for hype. It took me a long time to convince myself to give this soap a try and I'm glad I did. 

Tried a Hydrogen Soap! Hyggee All-In-One H2 Soap Review



Looking at the packaging, it is easy to think that the soap is overpriced. I got this from Charis for a little less than $20. It was free shipping. more details below :)

Blythe by Careline Launch - Blythe Cosmetics Hyper Cosmic Collection is HERE! #BlytheByCareline

I've heard about Blythe's own line via Careline late last year but I wasn't at a liberty to share anything because, well, that's not right, haha! Anyway, after more than half a year of waiting, Blythe Cosmetics is finally here! Blythe by Careline is due to launch today, August 14, 2019 but I can't make it due to prior work commitments. Thankfully, I saw them have a soft online launch via Lazada late night yesterday. Here is what you have to know about Blythe Cosmetics, the newest Ever Bilena baby - Blythe by Careline!

Blythe by Careline Launch - Blythe Cosmetics is HERE!



What is Blythe by Careline or Blythe Cosmetics?


Blythe Cosmetics, aka, Blythe by Careline is the newest collection to launch from Ever Bilena. The Blythe by Careline Hyper Cosmic Collection is composed of 25 products with a cosmic or astrological theme ranging from eye and brow products to lots and lots of fun lippies and tints. Just to be clear, there are a total of 8 different kinds of products but overall the entire Hyper Cosmic Collection has 25 items. Details below!

Olay Regenerist Whip Review plus Price, Oily Skin Compatibility, and Where to Buy Philippines

This Olay Regenerist Whip review is one of my rare non K-Beauty skincare reviews this year. I know, I know, it has been quite a while since I posted an Olay review in this blog but over the past 2 decades, I've tried and tested around the same number of variants of their products (I got receipts in video and in this link, haha!). The newest one in my beauty arsenal is the Olay Regenerist Whip Active Face Moisturizer so sharing a review here. 

By the way, if you're not into hardcore anti-aging yet, you can take a look at my Olay Natural White Ageless Aura Whitening Cream review HERE which is what I would recommend for those who are still in their 20s. Anyway, back to Olay Regenerist Whip Active Moisturizer review below...

Ara Colours Matte Lipstick Swatches Review Price - Collaboration Between Ara Mina and Ever Bilena!

Ara Colours is a new line of local cosmetics under Ever Bilena. This new collaboration between entrepreneur-actress Ara Mina and cosmetics giant Ever Bilena has been in the works since last year and is finally launching by end of July 2019. I heard about this new paraben-free and cruelty-free collaboration a year ago but kept mum because I didn't want to jinx anything. So happy that some of the products are already available via Shopee and Lazada under Ara Colours official store!

CL4 Max Hyaluronic Stem Cell BB Cream Review - Is This the Best BB Cream to Achieve Glass Skin?

I've always wanted to achieve glass skin but that is quite hard to execute when you have skin texture and blemish that needs covering up. I've tried and tested so many other BB creams (watch my Best BB Cream Battle video) in the past but haven't really found a good BB cream for getting glass skin until I've tried CL4 Max Hyaluronic Stem Cell BB Cream a few weeks ago.

BRTC Perfect Calming Gel Review, Ingredients, and Thoughts for my Sensitive Skin

I have acne-prone and sensitive skin so it isn't easy to find products to calm it especially when it is acting up. I usually use a lot of soothing gels as you can see in my Best Soothing Gel Battle video but I usually use them on my body and not my face because they can sometimes feel heavy. Needless to say, I've always been on the lookout for a gel product to soothe my facial skin whenever it is irritated. Thankfully, I've discovered the BRTC Perfect Calming Gel!

Esfolio Skincare Review and Kbeauty Favorites - Top Recommendations

Esfolio Philippines is the local distributor of the Korean skincare brand, Esfolio. I've posted several blog posts about them as well as videos. In this blog post, I'll just be summarizing my video from half a year ago talking about my favorite skincare products from Esfolio. They're still my favorites to this day with the addition of the Gold Mask and the Esfolio Collagen Mist. 

Esfolio Skincare Review and Kbeauty Favorites Top Recommendations



So my skin type is acne-prone, sensitive, oily, and dehydrated. I feel that I should mention this as this is the main factor why I ended up liking the products below. 

Best Maybelline Foundation for Philippine Weather for Oily Acne Prone Skin

Those who've been around since I began beauty vlogging at YouTube knows that I started with US drugstore makeup and highend -ish or midrange makeup. A lot of my reviews back then are Urban Decay, Maybelline, KatVonD, Coastal Scents, Tarte, and BH Cosmetics. Then I got introduced to ELF and local Philippine drugstore makeup and so that's how I really started beauty blogging for PinayBeautyAndStyle. Being a Maybelline girl (naks!) I still get questions about what is my favorite Maybelline foundation every once in a while. Sometimes I get asked what is the best Maybelline foundation for Philippine weather, especially for those with oily and acne prone skin like mine. One of the recent questions was why I stopped blogging about Maybelline followed by a request to rank Maybelline foundations so here goes!

Why Did I Stopped Blogging About Maybelline?


Be Healthy Inside and Out to Look Good Feel Great with Watsons Philippines!

I've been trying to be healthier for the past few months. Some of you may have heard that I'm doing the keto diet and that I've been more interested in natural beauty products and natural self-care products. It is not a secret that one of my favorites to shop in is Watsons Philippines (I have too many Watsons haul videos over the years, haha!) and I am glad to share with you how shopping in Watsons Philippines helped me with my health journey. 

Be Healthy Inside and Out to Look Good Feel Great with Watsons Philippines! 


By the way, being healthier is a work in progress project for me so be ready for more updates in the future! As much as I want to say that things will just take a month, I found out that choosing what is healthy for you will really take a lot of trial and error. I'm just glad that now I know that Watsons Philippines has almost everything that I need and I can even order through their online store too

So, how did I got healthier inside and out? And what does Watsons Philippines got to do with it?


Snody Cushion Review - Snody Natural Soft Milk Cushion Swatches and Wear Test

I've been using the Snody Natural Soft Milk Cushion in shades #21 and #23 for a little over a week now. I seldom use a product right after getting it but I was really excited to give this Snody Cushion a try because of all the Snody Cushion review videos and posts that I've been seeing from the past year or so.

The Istana Ph Grand Launch and Store Tour - Living in Quezon City

Living in Quezon City is awesome! Since I moved here 6 years ago, I've enjoyed being nearer to establishments such as malls, restaurants, and my favorite - lifestyle hubs! Last Sunday, June 16, 2019, I was invited to The Istana Ph Grand Launch. I dropped by for a while to see what they have to offer and loved what I saw. I'm already planning another visit!

Truecica Mineral 100 Calming Suncream Review from Some By Mi - Is it Really A Good Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin?

Some By Mi products are great for acne-prone skin so I've been using their products for a few months now. I also blogged about buying from Some By Mi website and featured Some By Mi makeup in both the PinayBeautyAndStyle blog and YeyAndie blog. Today, I'll share my short review on a good sunscreen for sensitive skin, the Some By Mi Truecica Mineral 100 Calming Suncream.

Ra & Gowoori Eyebrow Pencil Review plus Chika About Saeyu Philippines

I like a lot of Ra & Gowoori skin care products. I was there during the Ra & Gowoori Launch in Trinoma under Saeyu Enterprises last year.  I am also a frequent customer of some of the nanay angels who sell Ra & Gowoori products in Shopee and Trinoma (though I don't use my blogging name for my shopping account). I have a video of the event but didn't have photos because I came in late. You can read DollUpMari's blog on the Ra & Gowoori Launch HERE. 

Ra & Gowoori Eyebrow Pencil Review plus Chika About Saeyu Philippines 


So anyway, last week was the first time I found out that they have makeup products too. I usually just buy the takal skincare so didn't know they have makeup. I only found out because Saeyu.Net (which is going to launch soon) sent me a blogger mail parcel of some Snody products and Ra & Gowoori products. I shall be able to share reviews of them soon because some are the same products I've been buying from my suking nanay angels from Saeyu Philippines facebook (click HERE), hello po nanay Helen and nanay Janelle, hahaha! 

Ponds Mineral Clay Mask Review - Does the White Beauty Variant Really Brighten Skin?

My Ponds Mineral Clay Mask Review of the detox variant was posted about 6 weeks ago and since I also used the Ponds Mineral Clay Mask White Beauty variant for a few weeks, I figured to also share a review as well since a lot of readers are surely looking for products to brighten skin too.

Ponds Mineral Clay Mask Review - Does the White Beauty Variant Work to Brighten Skin?



I got a resealable sachet instead of a tube because I can't find the Ponds Mineral Clay tubes where I live. Each sachet is good for 2 uses to brighten skin but can be stretched up to 4 and retails for just P30 per 8 grams sachet. 

Bloom this Summer with BYS Summer Bloom and Urban Safari Collection! I got Swatches!

Bloom this summer with BYS Summer Bloom and Urban Safari collection indeed! I can't believe that I've only found out a few days ago that BYS Cosmetics is mostly a cruelty-free makeup brand. I have a ton of their products but I held off blogging because I wanted to keep this blog cruelty-free as much as possible. I know, I know, I still get lots of requests for reviews of non cruelty-free makeup products and I am really considering featuring some again because I have a ton in my stash; but now that I found out that BYS Cosmetics is mostly cruelty-free, I am just glad that I won't have to stop myself from blogging about new BYS Cosmetics makeup anymore.

Let's start off our BYS Cosmetics party with their newest makeup releases in the Philippines, their new lip and cheek tint plus the Urban Safari and Summer Bloom collections!

Pop Studio Cosmetics Collection Launch and Swatches! PopStudioPh Makeup Starter Set Album 1

Pop Studio Cosmetics officially launched yesterday (FULL story of PopStudioPh Launch HERE) and I was one of the bloggers invited by Digify Marketing Corporations. I was really sick and went there straight from work and guess what, I enjoyed the launch more than I thought I would! 

Yes, I'm a Sarah Geronimo fan and all but aside from the Pop Studio Cosmetics launch, we were also treated to live performances by some outstanding up and coming local artists. Saw a lot of blogger friends too and they're equally excited to try the new makeup that Pop Studio Cosmetics has to offer.

Esfolio Philippines Grand Launch (PICTURE HEAVY POST!) #WelcomeEsfolioPh #EsfolioPh #EsfolioPhilippines

Esfolio Philippines finally had a Grand Launching event yesterday, May 30, 2019, at Happy Garden Cafe in Bel Air Makati and I am so glad I went! It is no secret that I've featured Esfolio Philippines a few times in both the PinayBeautyAndStyle YouTube channel and the #PinayBeautyAndStyleBlog. I even have a hashtag for my Instagram features under #YeyAndieLovesEsfolio!

I'm just really happy that the brand took a lot of time and effort before officially launching in the Philippines. Without further ado, here is what happened at the Esfolio Philippines Grand Launch event!

Don't mind my weird photo, I needed a thumbnail for the vlog of the Esfolio Philippines launch. You can watch the video further below.

EB Advance Lip & Cheek Stain Review Swatches Price and Wear Test from Ever Bilena! #CrueltyFreeMakeup #ParabenFreeMakeup

EB Advance Lip & Cheek Stain is not a new product for me. I've been using the shades Very Red and Perfect Plum for years and love them. Recently, Ever Bilena came up with new Lip and Cheek Tint and so the new shades of EB Advance Lip & Cheek Stain were born as well.

Esfolio Snow Whitening Cream Review - Get Instant Glow from Within!

Esfolio Snow Whitening Cream intimidated me at first because I thought that it would look too white on my skin. Other creams that claim users can get instant glow from within are usually too thick and too white, making the user look like 'espasol'. I finally started using Esfolio Snow Whitening Cream as my base a few weeks ago and am really happy with the results.

Lazada Women Festival Guesting PinayBeautyAndStyle X The Face Shop + Lazada Sale Promos!

Lazada Sale promos are part of the highlight of my past summers. I never thought that I'd be a part of it someday through their Lazada Women's Festival! So, okay, the thing is, a few brands have asked me to be a part of their FB and Lazada Live over the past 8-10 months but I always decline because I feel that I am too old, too ugly, too fat, and too much of a 'no one'...until The Face Shop asked.

Ever Bilena Fig Trio Swatches and Review from Face Trio Collection - Better than the EB Advance Blush Duo?

Ever Bilena and EB Advance has a ton of new products recently. They've released Careline Play to Slay palette yesterday at Lazada and also launched a new all mattes eyeshadow palette. I think those will take a while to hit stores so before I get to play with them, I figured I should first publish a written review of the Ever Bilena Fig Trio from the Face Trio line of EB Advance.

Remember when I first discovered Megan Beauty earlier this year? I really loved their Megan Peel Off Clay Mask (review here) and so I'm really excited to also share their hottest products for #Summer2019!

#MegandaKa Summer Essentials! Try Megan Beauty Products for Your Summer Skincare



These products are not all new. I know that Megan Peel-Off Masks has been around for a while. I've also tried the Megan Hot Wax Kit recently but forgot to take a video. The new ones or at least the ones that are new for me are the Megan Aloe Vera Gel and the Sunscreen!

Cream Silk Ultimate Color Revive, Sulfate Free Conditioner for Colored Hair REVIEW! #MyUltimateVibrance #UltimatelyVibrantHair

Cream Silk Keratin Conditioner has been on my stash of my regular hair care products. However, I recently colored my hair, going from my natural dark brown to blonde and then going from blonde to red hair. Needless to say, my hair needed extra care!

Cream Silk Ultimate Color Revive, Sulfate Free Conditioner for Colored Hair REVIEW! #MyUltimateVibrance #UltimatelyVibrantHair



So, Why Try Cream Silk Ultimate Color Revive?

#MyUltimateVibrance Revealed at Cream Silk Keratin Rescue Ultimate Color Revive Launch #UltimatelyVibrantHair

Cream Silk launched their newest Keratin Rescue Ultimate Color Revive conditioner a week ago at the BGC Arts Center. After a week of use, I'm totally happy to share what went down during the event!

#MyUltimateVibrance Revealed at Cream Silk Keratin Rescue Ultimate Color Revive Launch #UltimatelyVibrantHair



The Story


Creamsilk recognized the need to create a conditioner that really works for colored hair as hair coloring became more popular locally. As you may have also observed, it is quite normal to see Filipinas sporting blond, all shades of brown, and even pastel hair these days. I've had ombre blond hair from January to April 2019 and recently switched up my blonde hair to red! 

I talked about products for maintaining red hair in this post and today, I'm glad to share that I'm adding Creamsilk Keratin Rescue Ultimate Color Revive to my list!

Infracyte Cyto Clean Review - Mild and Gentle Face Cleanser for Mature Sensitive Skin

Infracyte Cyto Clean is something that I've been using on and off for more than a year. It's not that I don't like it, it's just that I try not to use it up too fast and tend to save it for days when my skin is really bad. This is how difficult it is to find an effective and gentle face cleanser for mature sensitive skin!

This review is actually an updated and republished version of the first blog post I did in April last year. I wanted to add some notes and change the photos to really give justice to this mild yet effective cleanser from Infracyte. I also wanted to highlight how much I recommend this for sensitive skin no matter how old or young you are if you're okay with shelling out P1,800 for a cleanser.

Infracyte High Potency L Vita C Antioxidant Serum 10% Review (about 1 year of use!)

I first blogged about the Infracyte High Potency L Vita C Antioxidant Serum 10%  last year and at that time, I've only been using it for about 2 weeks. This blog review is a republished and updated version of that Infracyte Vitamin C Serum review because I feel that skincare need ample time to work for anyone to see real results.

Infracyte High Potency L Vita C Antioxidant Serum 10% Review (about 1 year of use!)



The first time around that I tried Infracyte Vitamin C Serum was when I was really breaking out and had bad skin a year ago. That was also the time that I gained a lot of weight because of stress and so the effects were really visible on my skin. I figured that since Infracyte is distributed by Eiskin in the Philippines and is under the same cosmeceuticals umbrella as Mesoestetic (a brand I trust), that it must be great too! And it is!

Happy Skin Power Pout Lip Lacquer Review in Hear Me Roar

Hear Me Roar is a phrase that always reminds me of the Lannisters in Game of Thrones so when I found this Happy Skin Power Pout Lip Lacquer at the back of my drawer, I just can't help but to try this on despite my reservations with using any gloss or lacquer type of lip product. I'm actually kicking myself over this because I can't believe it took me this long to take this for a spin. If it weren't for Cersei Lannister going mad queen mode with her legendary power pout and the House Lannister words "hear me roar" echoing in recent Game of Thrones episodes, I won't have tried this Lip Lacquer from Happy Skin!

Sorry, I can't help referencing Game of Thrones because the shade name of this Happy Skin Lip Lacquer is exactly the same as House Lannister words 'Hear Me Roar'.

Jeju Aloe Ice Review from The Face Shop - Refreshing Soothing Gel That Really Works! #JejuAloeIce #TFSJejuAloeIce #WhiteSorbetGel #TFSWhiteSorbet

Jeju Aloe Ice is a phrase that I keep hearing about from the staff at the office but I really thought that it was some kind of new raved gel from an unknown brand. Little did I know that Jeju Aloe Ice is the latest trend in KBeauty and quite a few brands have their own concoctions. I can't believe that I've only been aware recently and won't even know that TheFaceShop Philippines also carries their very own TheFaceShop Jeju Aloe Ice Refreshing Soothing Gel until they sent me one! 

Spoiler: I liked this so much that I hoarded a few from my local The Face Shop store. Not gonna show here because they might ban me from the store, hahahah!

It seemed like it was only a few days ago when Althea launched a few more Kbeauty products and here they are again with their newest line, Althea A'Bloom!

Althea A'Bloom collection is composed of products that can enhance one's complexion from what I observed. Maybe that is why they called their collection Althea A'Bloom?

One of the first videos I created for the PinayBeautyAndStyle YouTube channel is a beauty subscription box unboxing video for beauty subscription box Boxycharm followed by IPSY. Unfortunately, these beauty subscription boxes are not available in the Philippines. I followed that with Glamourbox and BDJ Box but both Philippine Beauty Subscription Boxes are also long gone as of now. Good thing that TheStyleQuarter.Net came up with their own beauty subscription box! Of course, I grabbed the opportunity to share this new Philippine Beauty Subscription Box with you guys!

My Favorite Haircare Products for Maintaining My Colored Red Hair!

I finally did it, I finally summed up enough courage to go out of my comfort zone and go for an outrageous hair color! My hair is naturally dark brown, almost black. I haven't really experimented much and would usually just dye my hair brown or go as light as light brown. However, life isn't really for wanting things and never trying them. If there's anything I learned from watching Game of Thrones (and real life), it is the fact that we only live once so might as well make the most out of it!

My Favorite Haircare Products for my Maintaining My Colored Red Hair!



Don't worry, this won't be an inspirational post. I just wanted to share what made me go from black hair to blond hair, and finally, get colored red hair like the red woman in Game of Thrones. 

EB Advance New Products Swatches Lip and Cheek Stain, Eyeconic Palettes, and Face Trio in Sunset and Fig from Ever Bilena Advance!

EB Advance showed bloggers and vloggers their newest products late last year and around the mid of April, they released them! I was really looking forward to the new eyeshadows and the face palettes and am really happy that I got to try them. 

This will sound super biased but I liked everything despite initial reservations (I'll post individual detailed reviews at a later date). For instance, I thought that the EB Advance Lip and Cheek Tint colors will be nearly the same but they aren't at all. Check out the swatches later at this post!

EB Advance New Products Swatches Lip and Cheek Stain, Eyeconic Palettes, and Face Trio in Sunset and Fig!



By the way, I believe they also released foundation sticks but I haven't seen those yet in stores. There are other releases too but those are under Ever Bilena and Careline, not EB Advance. If you're interested to see those, you can check out my post on Ever Bilena, Careline, and Kris Life Kit New Products.

Ponds Mineral Clay Mask Review - Does the Pure White Detox Variant Work?

Ponds Mineral Clay Mask was released in the Philippines late last year but I only purchased a few weeks ago and took me a while to try. It's been sitting inside my drawer for months! I finally tried both the Detoxx variant and the White Beauty variant of the Ponds Mineral Clay Mask a few weeks ago and I think I've used both enough times to share a review.

DIY Hair Removal System by Strip It! Filipina Secret Weapon for a Carefree Summer!

DIY hair removal is something that I've been doing since college days. I've tried numerous creams, lotions, hot wax for hair removal, and even created my own sugaring wax circa 2012, haha! So yeah, I've seen a lot and been through a lot when it comes to at home hair removal or DIY hair removal.

I'm on the 'balbon' side. That means I have noticeable body hair and even facial hair. I've always been a bit insecure about that because living in a tropical country means year-long license to wear shorts and skirts. My brother used to tease me that my legs are as hairy as his!

Over the past 2 decades, I've learned to accept my hairy legs but I still use DIY hair removal at home because having smooth legs (and arms) make me feel pampered. Its like DIY hair removal has become a sort of a ritual for me when I need to recharge or chill.

Why not just go to a waxing salon or use a razor instead of using this type of DIY Hair Removal System?

Vice Cosmetics Foundation Launch! New Duo Finish Foundation for Filipinas with 8 Shades!

My first experience with a product from Vice Cosmetics wasn't a pleasant one. I was one of the first people to place an order in their website when Vice Cosmetics launched but due to volume of orders, their website went down for a day and the order fulfillment was delayed. 

I was and am witness to how they grew and how serious they are with product development, improving with each new release. Over the past 1.5 years, they've consistently improved not only their customer service but their cosmetics as well; including the makasaysayang lip liner that drew ire from the Philippine makeup community. The current formula of their lip liner is a huge improvement!

With the above said, I became a fan of the brand. I love them even more now because they've just released the first Vice Cosmetics Foundation! I say first because I believe that that the Vice Cosmetics Duo Finish Foundation is just the first in their line of foundation products. Yep, I'm seriously hoping/wishing for a liquid foundation next!
