Beauty in Full Bloom: Healthy Skin Magazine and Skin Perfection Philippines

According to Kantar WorldPanel, a company that studies the buying behaviour of the local consumers, they have concluded, 72% of Filipino women spend a lot on beauty products.

I admit that I'm one of those 72% Pinays. I've always been fond of beauty-related stuff and that's one of the main reasons why I am in the beauty industry now. I remember when I used to search for articles regarding the latest trends about skin care, makeup, health, and other things related to beauty. I'm sure a lot of Filipino women do this, too. We even have beauty forums where the members share information, their knowledge about beauty, even videos and articles.

Filipina women always look for mediums where they can find information on the latest beauty, wellness, and health and slimming trends available. Healthy Skin Magazine has answered this with conviction.

Makeup Demo at Female Network's First Beauty Con

I am privileged to be given an opportunity to be a part of the first ever Beauty Con of one of the biggest beauty networks,! When I received an invitation from them to be one of their speakers, I was thrilled! I really couldn't believe my eyes and I immediately felt butterflies in my stomach and just feeling overwhelmed knowing that I'll be on stage talking in front of a big crowd. Excited and nervous at the same time but it was such a great opportunity, so, thank you, Female Network!

The FemaleNetwork Beauty Con happened last November 15, 2015 at the Robinson's Magnolia Atrium. Oh, there's me with my sister/model, Queen B.!

Nature Republic is now in Robinson's Place Manila!

Nature Republic, one of my favorite Korean skin care and cosmetic brands, opened a new store at Level 1, Midtown Wing Robinson's Place Manila. To be honest, I have only tried one of their skin care products which is a facial cleanser (forgot what it is, it was 3 years ago already) because the price range of their products is a little expensive for me. But I love their eyebrow pencils, particularly the retractable pretty tree eyebrow pencil, and their lip stain.

Pink Sugar Cosmetics: The Next Best and Sweetest Thing

When I first heard about Pink Sugar Cosmetics, I was really intrigued and was excited to check their products out since I learned that it is a local brand here in the Philippines. That's why I was so glad to be invited in their makeup launch that took place at Stella Woodfire Bistro a couple of months ago.

Pink Sugar Cosmetics is a local label that is a homegrown makeup brand bound to take space on every Pinay's top shelf. It is a product line that ranges from skin to color cosmetics, quality formulations suited for Filipina skin, and cool packaging that would really attract the eyes of any makeup junkie.

Fall Makeup: Halo Eyes inspired by Batalash Beauty

One of my favorite beauty channels in YouTube is Batalash Beauty because they are so freakin' amazing, gorgeous, funny, and everything!!! Hahaha! I really love them, especially Samanta. I like how neat and perfect she does her makeup and any look suits her especially dark/vampy lips which are kind of my thing as well. Her skills are magical and her personality is just awesome! :)

Event: NEW Céleteque DermoCosmetics Launch

I remember when I was just starting to explore the makeup and skin care world, Céleteque was one of the first skin care brands that I have tried. I learned about it through my sister. She used to use the famous Céleteque moisturizer and I was hearing a lot of positive feedback about it so I gave it a try. It's still one of the best moisturizers for me that is effective and not heavy in the pocket. I have always adored Céleteque Dermo because of its extensive, customized, and expert line of dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, and clinically-proven products. That is why I was so thrilled to learn the good news (and I'm sure I wasn't the only one who got excited) that Céleteque Dermo finally have their own line of cosmetics --- Céleteque DermoCosmetics!

Yves Rocher New Sérum Végétal! (FREE VOUCHERS)

I recently got an invitation from Yves Rocher to try out their new skin care innovation. I was so excited because I have tried some of their skin care products before from their Sebo Vegetal line and they were great. You can click here for my review on those products.

Yves Rocher's new skin care line is an anti-wrinkles innovation called Sérum Végétal. The main ingredient of this is a powerful plant called the Ice Plant, also known as the life plant. The Ice Plant is able to adapt to extreme conditions and face anything. It is resistant and it survives that's why it's called the life plant. It has natural, anti-wrinkle properties, easily assimilated by the skin. It reactivates the cellular mechanisms that fight wrinkles. Sérum Végétal is suitable for all types of skin and meets the needs of every woman: radiance, firmness, and a lifting effect.

Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara Review

I've been using the same mascaras from my same favorite brands for the past year now so I decided to try from other brands. I have thin and sparse eyelashes and I have oily hooded lids so it should really satisfy my preference --- thicker looking, longer, and volumized eyelashes plus it should be waterproof. I only use waterproof because if I use other formulas, I might end up having raccoon eyes after a few hours.

I recently started using the Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara. It's the first mascara that I've tried from the mentioned brand so I'm not really familiar with their formulas and other mascaras. I just know that their other mascaras are also called lash love but just with different formula.

ELF Studio Flawless Finish Foundation Review

I've had this foundation for many months now and just thought I'd share with you what I think about it. The ELF Studio Flawless Finish Foundation is by far, ELF's best foundation. I really love the packaging of this foundation. It looks sleek and sophisticated. You may actually think that this foundation is expensive because of its fancy bottle but it's really affordable.

I have tried many makeup remover wipes already. Some are good, some stings, some are dry and quite rough for our delicate skin, and some are too wet but doesn't completely remove the makeup from my face. I still try to find different makeup removers in the market because they are very convenient to use. Good thing, Nivea came up with these Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes.

Product Review: Rucy's Vanity Whitening Effect Mineral Two Way Cake

So, I want to start by clarifying that this two way cake from Rucy's Vanity is not like those other two-way powders that you can use with damp or dry sponges. This is a powder that you can use as a foundation and as a powder.  Now that we've cleared that up, let's proceed to the review. :)

Product Review: Yver Rocher Sebo Vegetal Line

Hello everyone! It's been months since I last blogged and even filmed a video for my YouTube channel. Being a 3rd year college student is tough. I've been so busy with tons and tons of school papers and activities but I promised myself that after this semester ends, I will, with all my heart, post here in my blog and film videos as many as I can. So, here I go! :)

A lot of people with oily skin usually send me messages regarding products that they can use for their skin type. I would like to share with you the Yves Rocher Sebo Vegetal line. This line is specifically designed for combination to oily skin.  I have given this set a try for months already so let me share with you my thoughts about it.

Product Review: Mary Kay Concealer

During school days and on regular days, I like wearing only minimal makeup. You know, just to look fresh, flawless, and more presentable. I usually just conceal my imperfections on my face, such as blemishes, set it with powder, apply tinted brow gel to groom my brows, apply mascara to open my peepers, and dab on some lip stain. However, looking for really good concealers can be tricky. It should match your skin tone, should match your skin type, it should have a decent coverage, and it should be long-lasting, especially if you'll be out for hours. In this post, I'll be sharing with you one of the best concealers that I've tried.
