Product Review: Monte Luxury Perfumed Soap with Intense Whitening Solution

There are so many whitening soaps available in the market but only a few of those that I've tried really worked greatly and helped in making my skin look lighter. One of the best whitening soaps that I've used is the Monte Luxury Perfumed Soap with Intense Whitening Solution. I know, that's a mouthful!

Monte is a company of skin care, cosmetics, and wellness. The first product that I have tried from this brand is their amazing soap. I know that this soap has quite a long name but what I love about it is that it really lives up to its name and what it claims.

Solenn Heussaff's Live Makeup Demo with L'Oreal Makeup Designer/Paris

Solenn Heussaff, known as a model and an actress here in the Philippines, if you're not aware, is also a makeup artist.

I remember a few years back when I just learned about this stunning woman, I became intrigued about her because I found out that aside being a model, she is also a very talented makeup artist and she does creative makeup and special FX makeup, too! If you don't know, I not just enjoy doing beauty and glam makeup but I am also into special FX and avant garde makeup. That's why when I found out the awesome talent and skill of Solenn, I instantly became a fan.

Fast forward to this year when I got very lucky and honored to be invited to Solenn's live makeup demo as the resident L'Oreal Paris Makeup Designer in the Philippines at SOMA, Green Sun Hotel in Makati last July 12, 2016.

Easy DIY Hair Color with Liese Creamy Bubble Color

I find it so much fun coloring my hair and switching to different colors. However, I suck at coloring my own hair because it ends up looking uneven and patchy and going to the salon to have my hair dyed can be really expensive. So, usually, I let my sisters and my Mother do it for me instead. But a month ago, I discovered a very easy DIY hair color which doesn't require that much effort and I won't have a problem anymore in reaching the hard-to-reach areas of my hair so the result of the color will now be even!

Liese (pronounced as lee-zay) is the number 1 hair color brand in Japan and it is now finally available here in the Philippines! It is so easy, you'll find it a joy to color your own hair!

Product Name: Liese Creamy Bubble Color
Color variants available: 6
Price: Php449
Available at: Landmark Department Stores, PCX stores, Robinson's Supermarket and Department Stores, and Metro Gaisano Department Stores

Product Review: Fashion 21 Eyebrow Gel

As a beauty blogger and a makeup artist, I've received a lot of questions regarding their eyebrows like how they can prolong the wear of their eyebrow makeup and how to lighten their eyebrows especially if they have full set of brows. My answer for those questions is always eyebrow mascara.

The good thing about eyebrow mascaras is that they have many uses. They tame the brow hairs, set the brows in place, prolong the eyebrow makeup, and neutralize the eyebrow color. You can even wear them alone or on top of your eyebrow pencil or eyebrow powder. But before, not a lot of makeup brands carry eyebrow mascaras. Probably the first eyebrow mascaras that I knew about are the ones from MAC which are kinda expensive for some. And then suddenly, it became a big thing in the makeup industry and different makeup brands finally came up with their own formulas for eyebrow mascaras, even by the local cosmetic brands. Personally, I am really glad that there are now more affordable eyebrow mascaras in the market because that means, more people can try them and hopefully help them with their eyebrow problems. :)

One of the most famous local makeup brands here in the Philippines, Fashion 21, already carry these life-saver eyebrow mascaras. I got all perked up when I saw it on their makeup counters and immediately purchased one to try it out and quickly became a staple in my makeup kit!

Anyway, I will just write a short review here and if you're interested to see my video review as well, I will embed the video below.
