Product Review: Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara (I'M BACK!)


I didn't realize that it's been 5 months since I last posted an entry here in my blog. I don't know what to say. LIFE HAPPENED and I won't bore you with the details since I am here to share a product review with you, guys, and I am planning to tell you all about what happened in a separate post.

So, let's get down to business. Yes, it's been 5 months since I was MIA and it's also been that long since I last played with makeup and explored different products. Recently, I'm trying my best to check out new beauty products in the market so I'll have something new to share with you when I finally come back in blogging and vlogging. So, here you go!

When you stopped doing glam and beauty makeup for a while, it could be hard to get back so as of now, I'm just sticking with the basics. I rarely go out with foundation, concealer, or any base makeup at all. My go-to beauty products are sunblock, eyebrow pencil, and lip and cheek tints. On days when I want to look more presentable, I apply concealer, a touch of bronzer, and I sweep on some mascara just enough to open up my peepers. And when it comes to mascaras, Maybelline is one of my favorite brands. Then recently, they released their new mascara called Maybelline Total Temptation and boy! I am, yet again, impressed with the brand.

Product Name: Maybelline Total Temptation Waterproof Mascara (Very Black)
Price: Php399

Sometimes, I think I'm not good enough.

Lately, I've been thinking I have nowhere to go and nothing's going right. Like I don't know what I'm really doing in my life. But God has a way of giving you time to stop for a while and notice the people and things around you and make you realize that you actually have a lot that is more than enough. It's okay to need and to want things. And sometimes we get hurt because things are not going the way you think or hope it's supposed to. We always hear it from other people but it may take some time for you to understand that God has a better purpose and perfect timing for you and for everything.

If you think you don't have enough, just stop and think about the roof over your head, the food on your table, the pillow you lay your head onto, the blanket that covers you when you're cold, or even that wi-fi installed in your house. Think about the people around you. Related by blood or not, there will always be someone who cares for you and loves you. They may not always understand you but sometimes, knowing that they are just there for you is actually more than enough.

And lastly, I realized how selfish of one person to think that they are not good enough. So, yes, I was selfish. At times, I am... however, no one is created perfectly but I'm sure we all have at least one special thing in our lives that we are good at. We tend to focus on the things that we want (or things we think we lack) that we forget about the blessings that are already there. So, I thank God for the people around me who love and care for me, the basic things that I need to survive, the sanity and understanding that help me combat my anxities and frustrations, and the passion and talent He blessed me with that opened so many doors for me and made me realize that I am good enough after all. Thank You for my life! ❤

Product Review: L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Masks (Anti-Pores and Detoxify)

Face mask is now a very important part of one's skin care regimen. It's not something you use everyday in your skin care routine but it's something that I look forward to every week. I just love how it makes my skin feel cleaner, fresher, and more revitalized.

There are many types of face masks but one of my favorites is a clay mask because I just feel that it really helps in cleaning the pores. It is a must since our skin faces pollution every single day. Thank goodness for clay masks, it can get rid of excess sebum and unclog pores.

Well, there are so many clay masks now that are available in the beauty market. I have tried a few but recently, what I've been using are the L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Masks.

Product Name: L'Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask Anti-Pores and

I admit that sometimes, I buy products because of their packaging. If that's a Cookie Monster edition product, say no more, I would totally buy it! If that product has a Bad Badtz-Maru print on it, I'd take it. If it's a Pucca product, you can just take my money (I'm guessing you already know who are some of my favorite cartoon characters)!

When I saw the Hocos-Pucca Chuchu Sunpact available at Charis, I did not think twice and immediately ordered it. I just can't resist Pucca!!! From the name itself, this sunpact is a sunblock in a compact. I know you know you can only find products like this from the K-beauty market. I first saw a sunpact in my trip to South Korea last year hosted by Charis. They gave us the andLAB Xylitol Mild Sun Cushion and the first thing that popped in my mind was "I would never thought of putting a sunscreen in a compact." At first, I thought it's just "Okay, another innovation" but this Summer when we had our family outings and I brought various sunscreens with me including the Pucca Sunpact, I actually realized that "Alright, this is pretty awesome".

RAVE-IEW: Butterfly Kisses Cosmetics Soft & Creamy Matte Liquid Lipstick

Matte liquid lipsticks everywhere! There's no denying that matte liquid lipsticks are a big hit in the makeup industry now. Almost all makeup brands have their own versions of matte liquid lippies, may it be a high-end brand, local brand, drugstore, or independent ones. I admit that I am also a fan of these lippies and I have tried a lot of them already from various brands. Some are great, some goes straight to my HG list, and some quite sucks (sorry for the term). Recently, I discovered a good one!

REVIEW: Superface Soft Blur Lip Mousse

Superface is created by two award-winning TV commercial directors, Larry Shiu and Jung Son. They both have worked with stars such as Zhang Ziyi, Fan Bing Bing, Lee Bing Bing, and more. After reading about Superface's history, I finally get why their logo is a director's chair and why most of their products are inspired by things related to movies or in creating movies.

One of the products of Superface that I have recently tried is their Soft Blur Lip Mousse which I discovered through Charis. It was one of their featured "Try Me" so I went ahead and order one because I thought it looks really promising. I received two out of three shades.

Product Name: Superface Soft Blur Lip Mousse
Price: $20 (check my Charis shop for the promo)

REVIEW: Anne Clutz Ultimate Beginner Brush Set

I finally tried the much-awaited and the most talked about NEW makeup brush set by one of the biggest YouTube vloggers in the Philippines --- the one and only, AnneClutz!!!

Grabe! Even before Ate Anne launched her makeup brush sets, people are already going gaga and are all excited to try her brushes. When she finally released her babies, in just a matter of days, they were all SOLD OUT! That's how eager the people are to get the brushes and to show their support to Ate Anne. And I couldn't be happier for her since I know this came from her hard work and she really carefully planned and hand-picked everything. Kudos talaga sa'yo, Ate Anne!

Also, I want to thank her for giving me the chance to try her makeup brushes. She sent me a full set so I can test it out but I can assure you that the following things you are going to read about these brushes are based completely on my own honest opinions and experience. :)
