Cathy Doll's First Anniversary and Nude Me Collection Launch

Seems like just yesterday when Cathy Doll invited us to their launching here in the Philippines! I can't believe it's already been a year. I can still remember the booths and the happenings that day. It was actually one of the best events I've been invited to because it's super fun and the aura is just lively and colorful.

Last May 25, 2017, Cathy Doll Philippines celebrated their first year anniversary at Spatzle, Shangri-La Mall and I am very happy that I was invited again to one of their special events. Happy anniversary and congratulations, Karmart and LifeStrong Marketing, Inc., for a wonderful and successful first year here in PH! Your products are already loved by many Filipinas and I am actually one of them.

Ms. Nikki Tiu, top beauty blogger and our ever awesome and bubbly host, surprised the owners of LifeStrong Marketing, Inc., Mr. Lance Lee and  Mrs. Marge Lee, with an adorable Cathy Doll-themed cake!

Product RAVE-iew: Jazzy France Sleek Matte Eyeshadow

I rarely buy eyeshadows from the local cosmetic brands and I rarely buy makeup products impulsively BUT when I see a product that I know is going to be worth every cent, I wouldn't even think twice! Especially when I am sure it is going to help me and my makeup clients hugely.

I first saw this eyeshadow palette from Paul Unating (Pro Hair and Makeup Artist) and Kris Lumagui (Filipina YouTube vlogger). It immediately caught my attention because based on Paul's makeup tutorial video in YouTube and Ate Kris' photo on Facebook, it looks really promising. However, I just let it slip until I visited SM North Edsa this one time and saw this palette as I was exploring (as usual) the makeup section at Watsons.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, one of THE BEST eyeshadow palettes I have ever tried, Jazzy France Sleek Matte Eyeshadow Palette.

Product Name: Jazzy France Sleek Matte Eyeshadow Palette
Price: Php1,299
Available at: Watsons, Department Stores

Glitter Tear Makeup Featuring FS Features and Shades Cosmetics

FS Features and Shades (formerly known as FS Cosmetics and Fanny Serrano Cosmetics) is one of my favorite local cosmetics. I consider it as one of the high-end brands of the local cosmetics here in the Philippines. One of their best-selling products is their very popular powder foundations and I actually collected all shades back in 2011 or 2012. I even did a review on it and you can read it here. However, when FS Features and Shades changed management and rebranded, they changed most of their products and added more to their line of cosmetics. They still have the powder foundations but they changed the packaging which, in all honesty, looks way professional and more sleek now.

Anyway, last month, FS Features and Shades invited me to join their FS Challenge Eyeshadow Art. So, yes, the focus of this makeup challenge is the eye makeup. The contest ran the whole May and they chose different winners weekly.

This is the look that I came up with.

MAD Manila (The Newest Concept Store in The Metro)

Last March, I was invited by Ms. Aileen Lubrido and Ms. Julie Ong, the owner of Mad Manila Lifestyle Hub, to attend the grand launch of MAD Manila Concept Store. According to their Facebook page, this will be the new home of more than 80 online and offline brand partners from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, offering the latest trends at their best prices. Sadly, I was not able to attend because of my busy schedule that time but they are so nice, they told me that I can still visit their store anytime I am free.

A couple of weeks ago, I was finally able to visit them! They are located at #60 EK Bldg. Don Antonio, Holy Spirit Drive, Quezon City. The day that I visited them was during their Mother's Day special sale. I came there with my sister and with a few of my fellow YouTube vloggers. Our visit at MAD Manila wouldn't be as much fun without these awesome people here!
