Let's go Red with Miners The Matte Factor in Deep Red

Hello Mr Sunshine! Finally, the sun showed up. It has been very gloomy the past few days and I can't help but get emotional. Haha! Girls, can you relate with me?

Anyway, I'm loving this new lip color added to my collection. It's the Miners Cosmetics The Matte Factor in Deep Red. I had this for free because it was a price in Kimpossibly Gorgeous's FB party during her anniversary. Sorry Kim, it's really a late post. It was a collaboration with Make Up Hub by Naturele Collezione.

So here it is. Sorry for the background, it was the best place to capture to take advantage of the sunlight.

It is in a tube like any other glosses. I love it because it is very handy and the label does not chip off easily.

 The applicator is a slanted sponge, for effective and accurate application.

Since I am not so into bright bold red lips for everyday, what I usually do is apply dots on my lips and spread it using my finger. In that way, I can achieve a very matte look without it being too thick. I also avoid glossy lips because I have a thick lips and it would just protrude.

I super love this and I am planning to buy the other shades.

By the way, I also received a VIP card from Make Up Hub that entitles me to discounts during my birthday month.

Please follow if you would like to be updated on my next Miners The Matte Factor shades.

By the way this is how it looks on me! :) So don't be afraid of wearing red lipstick. You might not know that it suits you best!

Take care everyone!

Your Nails Can't Go Wrong with Caronia Nail Polish Remover

Hey everyone! How was your week so far? Mine was okay, yah yah.. Nothing much. :D

So I decided to let my nails breath and every time I do this, I always says thank you to my nails' friend.

I have been using Caronia Nail Polish Remover for a while now because it works wonder on my nails. It actually removes the nail polish, even the glittery ones so perfectly. And one thing that I LOVE about this is it does not dry up my nails. Also, it does not leave any white stains around my nails not like the plain acetone.

The product is in a plastic bottle with a twist cap. The nozzle is covered with a foam with foil (ugh, sorry can't really describe, but you know what I mean right?) to prevent the liquid from spilling. So what I do is just make a small hole on it, just enough to dispense the product on a cotton ball.

I would definitely buy another one and probably use this everytime for cleaning my nails.

How about you? What product do you use to erase those polishes on your nails? I would love to hear about it.

Please don't forget to subscribe/follow. :)

It's been a long day of work and my head is starting to ache. :( I had to work over time to finish my assigned task. My shoulders are hard (a sign of stress for me) and my back is starting to complain as well.

But looking at the brighter side, I have received a very good news from KRAVE Minerale Cosmeceuticals. My banner is up now! Yehey!

I am now an official distributor here in Benguet and Baguio City!

Few months ago I applied to be their distributor since I was amazed how their product works. Finally, here it is. You can check my link on the side to place your orders.

And reviews on these products will be up soon!

Let's treat our skin with what it Kraves!

Look of the Day: The Red Lips Says it All

Hey guys!

It's been a while since my last post (is it?) Hmmm.. Anyway, I finally decided to post makeup looks that I will be making.

So here's my first try.

I toned down my eye makeup since I will be using a red lipstick. This would balance the look. Imagine wearing a heavy eye makeup and a heavy lips? You will surely look like a clown with that. The face makeup is also minimal. I only used a brownish blusher to act as my contour powder. The goal of this look is to make the red lips stand out!

Products used:


  • Mary Kay liquid foundation in Beige 2
  • Ever Bilena concealer in Natural
  • Nichido finishing powder in Natural
  • Ever Bilena Blusher in Tangerine
  • NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette in Bohemian Rhapsody
  • Koshize Pen Liner in Black (from Sophie Martin)
  • Ever Bilena concealer in Natural as my primer
  • Avon Mascara in Brown
  • Miners Cosmetics The Matte Factor in Deep Red

So here I am trying to get a good angle. Which I haven't achieved. :( I am really having a hard time looking for my best angle shot or even just a smiling shot angle lately. Too bad! Sorry for the background, I went out to take advantage of the daylight.

So what do you think? Not bad for a beginner right? Please let me know what you think and please don't forget to follow me.

Good bye PANDA EYES! In2It Waterproof Gel Liner in Dark Brown

Have you ever experienced having that scary panda eyes after several hours after applying your eyeliner? I DID! And it's one of the most embarrassing moments of my life.

I tried one liquid eyeliner that claims to be long-lasting and waterproof, sorry I don't want to drop names. I liked it at first because it is in a pen form which is very convenient for first timers. I went to church with that at 9:00 am. After the mass, we headed to my parents' house. By not minding to look at the mirror, my sister surprisingly looked at me and said, "Ate, nakakatakot itsura mo. Para kang multo!" So I stopped using that.

I searched online about effective eyeliners and I came across this product. So I headed to the mall and check In2It's counter. There were several product lines.

I tried the gel liner and the sales lady even added my urge to buy it. She convincingly claimed that this will work. For the benefit of the doubt, I got one for me.

I so love this product! It has been my favorite since then. I tried using this if it will stay in place despite my activities. I took my son in the park and I did nothing but to run after him. But this product never failed me. It stayed in place even i got so sweaty on my face. Ugh, nothing much to say. I love it because it works!

So let's put in a test.

The above photo shows one coat of the gel liner. Look how pigmented it is. And not like any other liners, you can swipe it only once and get the outcome that you like.

The next photo was taken after I washed my hands and rubbed the product. It is still in tact.

So my verdict? Definitely gonna use this again and would purchase other colors. However, you cannot make the bold cat-eye look using this. It does not get pointed even if sharpened since it is in a form of a creamy substance. But still, I LOVE IT!

Have you ever tried the In2It Waterproof Gel Liner? I would love to hear your thoughts about it.

Nail of the Day: Dotted Gold

Hi everyone!

Finally the sun showed up! So I thought that I might as well do something to brighten up my day.

I looked on my nail and oh, my nail polish were cracked and destroyed. I had to do something about it. :)

Since I want, ever since, a polka dot nail polish, I decided to try it on my nails.

I grabbed a white nail polish from Sansan (Php37.00) and a gold nail art pen (Php20.00) which was bought from Baclaran by my sister and his boyfriend.

And tadah! Here's the final look. It's not perfect but not too bad for a first-timer right?

Sorry, it's starting to chip. I'm really careless. :(
How about you, what do you so to cheer you up? Please share it with me.
