REVIEW Spotlight Cosmetics Lipstick Swatches - Superstar Creamy Lips is Great for Dry Lips!

Spotlight Cosmetics launched about a year ago but I've only started using their Superstar Creamy Lips at the onset of summer in the Philippines because my lips are extra dry. I guess I have been so used with using tints and long-lasting liquid lipsticks that using bullet lipsticks just took the back burner for me.  Anywhoo, I finally gave them a try and ended up liking them that I have used them a few times a week for the last 3 months. Here is my review for the Spotlight Cosmetics SuperStar Creamy Lips!

EB Advance Silky Brow Liner Review Swatches from Ever Bilena

I don't remember blogging here about a brow product because brow products are normally challenging to write about so I just feature them in videos most of the time. Today, I have been very tired and worn out and literally couldn't summon the strength to do much except manage to put on a little bit of Belo SunExpert Whitening Sunscreen, Belo SunExpert Loose Powder, GRWM Cosmetics Milk Tints, and brows courtesy of EB Advance Silky Brow Liner so yeah, time to review these brow liners!

This will be a very short blog review because there is not much to say about brow liners so I will just talk about the most important details. And yes, just in case you are wondering, EB Advance is Cruelty-free and paraben-free, yay!

REVIEW Miss Rose Highlighter with Swatches! Cheap Highlighting Powder for Summer!

I haven't featured a standalone highlighter review in a few weeks and so here I am sharing my thoughts on Miss Rose Highlighter. This is just a very short post because I am so busy these days but I figured to share this because the product has been performing well since I bought it more than a year ago. I believe this was in my Chinese Makeup Haul.

Hyaloo Aqua Plus is HERE! Affordable Hyaluronic Acid Skincare for Intense Skin Hydration! #HyalooPh #HappyHydration

Hyaloo Ph was officially launched a few weeks ago and I am so happy to share with you their Aqua Plus range because I have pily but dehydrated skin! For those who may not be aware, oily skin is usually the skin's defense mechanism for dryness or dehydration. When you hydrate your skin properly, you also help address the oiliness and HyalooPh does that with the popular skincare ingredient Hyaluronic acid!

Just to be clear, this is an introduction and a little bit of first impressions. I will post a separate review after I am able to test these for a few weeks.

Taking Care of My Mental Health with Free Games Online at Plays.Org Because Yes, Gaming Is Self-Care!

Taking care of my mental health is my top priority these days and so I am back to enjoying free games online. This post is a follow-up to my blog post on Gaming Is Self-Care! One of My Best Kept Anti-Aging Beauty Secrets is Taking Care of My Mental Health!(<---pssst, that is a link) I wrote that blog a week ago because someone pointed out that it looks like I like gaming and then the conversation went to how gaming can have health and beauty benefits and how playing free online games can be considered as valid self-care.

I primarily play free games online when I am very stressed. The more stressed I am, the more I feel compelled to 'escape'. That is why I play free games online as part of taking care of my mental health!

It is no secret that playing digital games is an effective stress reliever for a lot of people. For me, gaming is a healthy and fun way to divert my anxiety and refocus my energy when I feel overwhelmed by deadlines, work, and other worries. I really believe that gaming is self-care and a productive one to boot!

REVIEW Squad Cosmetics Cheek to Cheek Duo Blush Highlighter Price Swatches Couplet

Squad Cosmetics released a bunch of budget-friendly cosmetics when they launched and one of them is their Cheek to Cheek Duo Blush Highlighter which comes in several shade combinations.

REVIEW Good Virtues Co Helpful and Delightful Conditioner and Happy and Heavenly Shampoo with Black Seed Oil for Sensitive Scalp

Good Virtues Co Helpful and Delightful Conditioner and Happy and Heavenly Shampoo are two Good Virtues Co products that I have been using for years. I can't believe that I totally forgot to review them considering that they are part of my usual shower time repertoire. I don't even remember how many times I repurchased both from my suki BeautyMNL and have also reviewed the Good Virtues Co Hair Serum HERE

Well, today is the day that I am going to talk about how much I love Good Virtues Co Helpful and Delightful Conditioner and Happy and Heavenly Shampoo. Just a bit worried that I won't do them justice because hair products are so difficult to review. Note that I am using my photos from early 2018 because I don't have time to take new ones so please excuse the quality.

REVIEW Watsons Glutathione Gummies Price Where to Buy! Is it a Skin Whitener or An Immune Booster?

Watsons Glutathione Gummies with Collagen and Camu Camu first caught my eye in an aisle at the store because I was looking for flavored lozenges. I hate taking tablets and capsules so I figured to give this a try and see if they taste good plus if they truly work as an antioxidant and as a health supplement for skin whitening. After all, that's what glutathione supplements are known for, right?

Gaming Is Self-Care! One of My Best Kept Anti-Aging Beauty Secrets is Taking Care of My Mental Health!

Gaming is self-care! That's what I told one IG follower when she spotted me having a game on my iPad while I was filming an unboxing video on Instagram and asked me if it was ever an issue with my image online. I said no and I see no reason why that would be the case. She was so happy because she thought the same but was just a bit conscious about how women gamers are perceived, especially that there seems to be a divide between 'real gamer girls' and the 'gaming ladies' VS 'true gamers'. 


Anyway, categories aside, I am a firm believer in taking care of yourself and your mental health if you want to age gracefully. It just so happens that some people like me enjoy playing online games or digital games for entertainment. It also works for coping with being cooped up at home especially at this time. 

But who am I kidding, right? I've been playing online games since I was in college! I find that I perform better when I have presentations and exams after I played some DOTA and Ragnarok back in my engineering days. Then I went into the medical field and I played digital games on my phone every break as a way to help me refocus when I have to digest hundreds of pages of medical text. 

Those were certainly the good old days! So yes, I dare say that gaming is self-care! And in fact, it is one of my best-kept anti-aging beauty secrets for taking care of my mental health now that I am nearly in my 40s!

REVIEW Cathy Doll Nude Me Liquid Lipstick Swatches - Long Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick to Try!

Cathy Doll Nude Me Liquid Lipstick is definitely on the top of my list of the most long-wearing lipsticks of all time, and that includes everything I have tried in all sorts of price range. I know this blog review is a bit late (I got a video review too a long time ago), after all, I have been using Cathy Doll products for the past 4 years and have posted so many review videos but today is the day that I have finally run out of my last Cathy Doll Nude Me Liquid Lipstick!

I first got to try this long-wearing matte liquid lipstick at the Cathy Doll Philippines first year anniversary that I wrote about HERE, and loved this lippie since then. Yes, I know that there are so many other liquid lipstick products in the market but this is really good. Most trendy products stop producing 2 years after the launch but this is still selling like hotcakes and is well-loved not just in the Philippines and Thailand (where Cathy Doll is from) but also other ASEAN countries and as far away as Russia and other Russian states. If you're also a tsismosa when it comes to makeup, YOU KNOW!

REVIEW VT Cosmetics Cica Skincare! They Got A Cleanser, Smoother, Essence Sun Care, Mask, and Cream with Centella Asiatica!

VT Cosmetics launched their Cica Skincare line last year in early 2020 and so many things have happened since then! Just for transparency, VT Cosmetics Korea did send me the products I will be talking about here but their PR parcel was held in customs due to the lockdown. I thought it was never going to arrive so I purchased everything in Shopee too, and then my PR parcel arrived, haha! So anyway that's the story of how I ended up giving some VT Cosmetics Cica Skincare products in my Instagram huge skincare giveaway.

Now that we got that cleared up, let me introduce you to the Cica Skincare line from VT Cosmetics!

SKJN Collagen Review - The Best Japanese Collagen Supplement?

I posted a SKJN Collagen Review video at the PinayBeautyAndStyleBlog youtube channel almost a year ago and so after a long time of using it, I decided it's time to post a review post for the blog readers out there who are looking for an effective collagen supplement review. 

I've been taking collagen supplements on and off for more than a decade now. let's just say that I have a love-hate relationship with collagen supplements because most of the tablets available in the Philippines are too large and those that are in powder form are often difficult to dissolve and are either tasteless or have an aftertaste. Since I discovered some easy-to-drink collagen supplements 2 years ago, some have become my favorites and later, you can check them out at my review link for my list of Effective Collagen Supplement Reviews.

I've been reviewing some squad cosmetics products at the vlog and instagram but I haven't written a blog post because I pretty much went AWOL from the blogging world last year.

Best soothing gel is a common question poised by my readers and followers because I have been featuring soothing gels in my IG stories for quite a while. I published a Battle of the Soothing Gels review video 2 years ago and since it is summer again, it is time for a write-up. To date, I have tried over 15 soothing gels but I will only be reviewing my top 7 which are readily available in top Korean Skincare websites and skincare distributors in the Philippines and the rest of the world. I did not include ones that are difficult to buy and/or did not perform well in comparison with other soothing gels.

Got Myself Affordable Graded Eyeglasses at EO Optical! Anti Radiation and Anti Blue Light Technology

Affordable eyeglasses are something that I have been on the lookout for, for years as I have bad eyesight but it seems that affordable eyeglasses are also easy to break. Today, I am sharing my experience getting affordable or cheap eyeglasses from EO Optical back in May 2017 and how the glasses survived with me through the years. Yes, I've been wearing these glasses for the past 4 years and have gone hiking with me, traveled with me, and my favorite cheap eyeglasses for the gym!

Got Myself Affordable Eyeglasses at EO Optical

I wasn't planning to buy affordable eyeglasses or any glasses for that matter when I bought this from EO Optical a few years back but I have just been to an Ever Bilena Big Beauty event and accidently left my glasses in a cab. Thankfully, my Uber destination was Landmark Trinoma because I wanted to buy some grocery so when I saw that they have an EO Optical, I went in and happily came home with these affordable eyeglasses that have become a favorite over the years.

I usually buy my stylish and affordable glasses at Firmoo, by the way, but I will write about that later. To date, I bought 5 pairs from them for the past 4 years and love all!

REVIEW Careline Glow Getter Palette Price and Swatches

Careline Glow Getter has been in my stash for more than a year now but I just didn't have a chance to write a stand-alone review for it in the past. It is one of the most affordable multi-purpose face palettes in the Philippine Drugstore Makeup aisle that is readily available and affordable. It is cruelty-free and vegan too! I just don't reach out for it as often because the shades are more suitable for someone with a morena skin tone and I have fair skin but considering everything, it's a good buy!

Careline Glow Getter Review, Price, and Swatches

I say that this is a good buy because I can't blame a makeup product that I bought to review for not being perfectly made for my skin tone.

It just so happens that I have other palettes that are better for me but I will still review this for those who might be interested.

REVIEW EB Advance Power Paint Swatches! Better Than or Dupe for Glossier Cloud Paint?

EB Advance Power Paint faced a bit of controversy last year in the local makeup scene because some people thought that this product is a shameless copycat of the Glossier Cloud Paint. This is why I took down my first review because I wanted to check if there is any truth to the wild accusations. Anyway, after looking around online, I found out that there are a bunch of similar-looking and similar-marketed products all over the world and none were met with the same controversy with the cancel culture crowd. Also found out that Glossier wasn't even the first the come out with the same concept anyway so meh, it really was just a small-scale social media frenzy for nothing except typical beauty world drama more so that Maybelline Cheek Heat was released a few weeks ago and it didn't get the same treatment from the Philippine cancel culture crowd for some reason. Smaller local brands released products with similar-looking packaging and concept too so yeah, the controversy was just weird. At any rate, besides the packaging, the EB Advance Power Paint is a different product in my experience and I've been using it for about half a year now. Read up on my thoughts below!

Affordable Filipino Paraben-Free and Cruelty-Free Makeup for Summer in the Philippines

One of the most common questions that subscribers and followers ask me about on Instagram and Youtube is asking about affordable cruelty-free makeup in the Philippines and what recommendations I have for paraben-free makeup that they can use for summer.

Korean Skincare Products for Dehydrated Sensitive Acne Prone Skin That REALLY Works

Korean skincare has been my skin savior since I've hit my 30s a long time ago. I used to use a lot of western skincare products but they always end up too heavy for me or just not working as claimed. This could be because they're formulated for a totally different climate but I really think that it also has something to do with certain skin characteristics that are not universal. Anyway, since I've switched to using mostly Korean skincare products, I noticed a huge difference in my skin as well as how good each product performs. I have nothing against Western skincare brands btw, but since I am currently based in the Philippines and am ethnically Asian, it just makes sense to use products that are made for Asian skin.

What I shared above are just a few of the reasons why I chose to switch to mostly Korean skincare products. I say mostly because I still use products from everywhere but yeah, because I have dehydrated sensitive, and acne-prone skin, it just makes more sense to make the switch.

My video review about the Megan Peel Off ClayMask was uploaded more than 2 years ago and since then, I have been using this mask to help remove blackheads almost every month. My favorite time to use this is during summer because my pores are more enlarged and my blackheads are more visible.

I figured it is better to just have all of them in 1 post rather than have several short posts so it will be easier to compare them and make your decision if you are reading this because you plan to buy some Hello Glow products.

REVIEW Careline Multi Sticks New Colors Swatches + UPDATE

My swatches for the Careline Multi Sticks was one of my most popular blogs in the past few months so when Careline went on sale, I made it my mission to purchase more so I can post an update. I will add links to my previous posts covering Careline Multi Sticks.

Careline Multi Sticks New Colors Swatches Review UPDATE

I am not sure how many Careline Multi Sticks are new right now because honestly it isn't like they send or post press releases when they have new products for existing lines but from what I can infer, it seems that they added a new highlighting stick and several blush sticks. That would make a total of 10 from the first 6 launched in 2018. I kinda wish that they added a bronzing stick plus a lighter matte highlighter because the one they have (brighten) is too dark on me plus the contouring stick is too cool-toned for bronzing.

I think the new releases are Berry, Coral, Flush, and Beam....so 3 blushers and 1 highlighter.

REVIEW Belo Collagen Strawberry Smoothie - A Delicious Japanese Collagen Powder Drink!

Belo Collagen has been a mainstay in the PinayBeautyAndStyle Blog and Vlog. I have reviewed the Belo Collagen with Hyaluronic Acid in the past as well as featured the Belo Collagen Melon Smoothie. This time, Belo Nutraceuticals came up with Belo Collagen Strawberry Smoothie and we got first dibs from SampleRoomPh! I took it for more than a week and below is the video review as well as the written review!

What is the Belo Collagen Strawberry Smoothie?


Belo Collagen Strawberry Smoothie is the newest health and skincare supplement from Belo Nutraceuticals. It is a powder collagen drink made from Japanese collagen in a delicious instant drink form. You can stir it in cold water to create a slightly thick collagen drink or add it to smoothies, frozen fruits, and the likes as an enhancer. I've blended it together with some frozen bananas to make a delicious soft-serve banana-strawberry 'ice-cream' and also made a drink on its own. You can tell that I really enjoyed this on the video at the later part of this feature review :)

REVIEW Missha 7 Days Coloring Hair Treatment - Best Temporary Hair Color?

This review is long overdue because I used the Missha 7 Days Hair Coloring temporary hair color around 2 years ago. So yes, this review has been in my drafts for such a long time. I totally forgot to publish but the product is still available so I figured why not share my experience with it?

REVIEW Ever Bilena Match Color Stix Swatches - Creamy Stick Highlighter for Gals on the Go!

Ever Bilena Match Color Stix is one of the new-ish products that was released by this Cruelty-Free Makeup brand. I say new-ish because it's definitely older than 6 months but was just not hyped or had as much recognition as the Careline Multi Sticks which are very popular. Perhaps because instead of a full-range of cream face products, the Match Color Stix only has 3 shimmer shades. Don't let that stop you from trying these out btw, they performed better than expected!

Ever Bilena Match Color Stix Swatches Review

What is the Match Color Stix by Ever Bilena?


The Match Color Stix by Ever Bilena is a collection of 3 cream stick highlighters that I assume were chosen to complement various skin tones and uses. The stick form makes it easy to apply even on the go and doesn't require the use of fingers or applicators making it more hygienic and easy to control. It is also quite hardy and survived being left out in a hot car during summer so that's a plus!

Is it worth it to buy this if you already have the Careline Multi Sticks? Find out below!

REVIEW Pittoresco Skincare Products - Perfect Nighttime Skincare for Sensitive Skin?

Pittoresco Skincare Review was the phrase that I was googling for when I found out that aside from their soothing cream, Pittoresco carries a wide array of other skincare products. I've been looking for Korean skincare products for sensitive skin for a while now so I got 4 and below is my review about them all plus a bonus demo and review video too!

REVIEW Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set Hello Glow ARS Price, Ingredients - Does It Work for Acne Prone Skin?

Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set was launched late 2020 if I am not mistaken but I have only had a chance to try it this year. I've tried the Hello Glow Whitening Set last year and loved it so tried this too and as expected, liked the set as well. I was worried about peeling, breakouts, and purging and thankfully, I did not experience any of that. I was wowed!

Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set Review - Does It Work for Acne Prone Skin?

What is the Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set?

Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set is a new breed of rejuvenating set made in Korea by Filipino manufacturers to give the user a 'rejuvenated' skin using skin-safe ingredients and techniques. This brand is under Ever Bilena and so the products are Cruelty-Free and Paraben-Free. They've also spent time and money on the formulation to make sure that the products deliver their claims and do not have the negative effects associated with typical rejuvenating sets in the Philippine skincare market. 

Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set is FDA approved just like the Hello Glow Acne Defense Set and Hello Glow Whitening Set. 

Question is, does this work on sensitive acne-prone skin, and does it cause purging?

REVIEW Spotlight Cosmetics Scene Stealer Gel Eyeshadow Swatches, Price, and Where to Buy

Gel eyeshadow products are not new in the Philippine market but the ones that were available before were from international makeup brands. Don't quote me on this but I think Spotlight Cosmetics is the first Filipino Makeup Brand that released a gel eyeshadow that truly works for Philippine weather. I've been using this since March 2021 and haven't experienced the problems I've had with similar products in the past. If you have oily eyelids that tend to give you raccoon eyes, then keep on reading!

25 Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Brands Philippines 2021 #CrueltyFreePh #CrueltyFreeBeauty #CrueltyFreeMakeup #CrueltyFreeBrands

Cruelty-free cosmetics is not a new concept in the Philippines. Most, if not all of the brands featured below have been cruelty-free before it became as an 'in' thing in the world of beauty. This isn't my first article writing about cruelty-free beauty brands in the Philippines. I have an earlier entry in my old blog circa 2018 and my vlog in 2019. Back then, I was only able to list 12 makeup brands so coming up with a list of 25 Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Brands in the Philippines, and in just 3 years, here we are with double the numbers. I believe this is partly because we have new cruelty-free makeup brands and some old brands that I was finally able to confirm do not harm animals and do not test on animals, yey!

So, First, What is Cruelty-Free? What Does It Mean To Be A Cruelty-Free Makeup Brand?


A Cruelty-Free Brand is a brand that does not knowingly harm animals in any way in the process of selling and distributing their finished product. By this definition, animal testing can unknowingly happen during sourcing, manufacturing, testing, distributing, and selling their products (or the unfinished components thereof) and a brand can still be called Cruelty-Free.  This highlights the fact that being a Cruelty-Free brand is easier said than done because it is easy to overlook raw materials that harm animals or were obtained by harming animals. More so, some countries in the world require animal testing before a brand can sell in their country and animal testing can be done too by certain government bodies without informing the brands. It's a really complicated issue. 

When a brand chooses to be animal-friendly, it means that also chose not to sell their products in countries requiring animal testing, so they face loss of profits. Luckily, animal testing is not required in the Philippines. This is why a lot of Filipino makeup brands are animal-friendly to begin with. Note that in some countries with animal-testing, it is not always a mandatory thing so that is a factor too.

Technically, a Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Brand is a company that doesn't test their finished product on animals (but it is possible that some materials were tested on animals because the cosmetics industry still have a lot of things to regulate). With this said, brands with the leaping bunny logo are fully animal-friendly in all aspects. 

Please use google to search for my older articles if you are looking for older entries. I have written blogs and made videos about Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands in the Philippines for years :)
