LOTD: Makeup sa Bahay Look

This look might be very simple and you may wonder why I still use makeup at home. Well, I do not do it everyday. I just put makeup at home when I want to look prettier. :) Plus, I use webcam for work, I just want to see myself looking presentable. Vain me! LOL.

On this look, I used very minimal and lightweight products as much as possible.

My Bag On-The-Go: Featured

People would often see me carrying a bag big enough to contain my things and my baby's. And since I often go out with him, I make sure that everything we need is in my bag. I hate carrying extra luggage when it's just the two of us. Can you imagine how difficult would that be? Carrying your super heavy kid on the other hand and extra bags on the other? It's a no no. So I stick to using medium to large bags.

Ever Bilena Mini Haul

I am in search of cheap but quality products that are accessible. We sometimes neglect these products because there are many high-end products emerging like mushrooms in the market. 

They say that there's no harm in trying. And I so agree. :) Ever Bilena is a local brand found in any department stores here in the Philippines. You can also check their website and online catalog HERE.

Checking on their catalog, I found interesting products that are usually raved about online. I got two matte lippies and HD waterproof liquid eyeliner with 2 free eye pencils inside. How cool is that?

Nail of the Week: Starry Warm Blue

To start the week, I decided to paint my nails again. Since I am loving light nail colors lately, I decided to get a baby blue one and just accentuated it with glitters and stars.

 I don't know exactly when this trend came out. Painting your ring finger with different color. In my case, I designed my ring finger with glitters and a star. Just to make it so cute. :)

My ring finger on a closer look.

 These are the colors I used. San San Nail Polish in Warm Blue and Chic Nail Color in Glaze.

How did you start your week? Does painting your nails give you excitement as well?

Krave Moisture Souffle Night Cream: A Review

Moisturizers are our skin's best friend they say, and I totally agree! Having a combination to oily skin needs thorough and careful treatment. According to beauty experts, they are actually the hardest skin type to manage. Every skin type needs to be moisturized, even the oily ones. Our skin tends to be oily because they produce more oil to compensate with our skin's dehydration. So like out throats, we have to let them drink.

I have found a new brand of organic skin care and cosmetics through the internet. Basing on the experiences of others, I decided to try it to. And now, my skin loves Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals makeup and skin care!

One thing that I am loving is the Krave Moisture Souffle Night Cream. I got it for Php320.00 for a 20-gram cream.

According to Krave's product description:

MOISTURE SOUFFLE night crème infused with GAPBAS (Green tea, Apricot, Papaya, Banana, Aloe vera & silk)


This is the most luxurious moisturizer you will ever find. We encourage you to enjoy the yummy scent of this product because of the many essential oils infused in it, unlikeother expensive brands that obtain their product’s scent by using chemically based preservatives & perfumes. You know how we hated those harmful & irritating chemicals. Moisture Souffle night crème smells luscious & feels incredible when applied. Replenished with 6 organic botanicals high in Vitamin B complex, folic acid, Vitamin C, vitamin A to help detoxify, supplies skin with sheer hydration & stimulate cell growth. Perfect for super dry skin that lacks moisture & balance, for the reduction of fine line & wrinkles & to even out skin tone. This moisturizer like soufflé will keep your face looking healthy & more radiant. 


1. GREEN TEA contains a cocktail of potent antioxidants called catechins, which help fight damage caused by free radicals. Helps soothes and revives dull & lifeless skin.
2. APRICOT eliminates skin blemishes & treats damaged skin. It is useful for maintaining skin clarity, suppleness, and elasticity.
3. PAPAYA exfoliates the skin revealing a healthier, whiter & glowing skin. Rich in antioxidants such as vitamin A.
4. BANANA composed of tissue-building elements, protein, vitamins including vitamin C, minerals & anti oxidant properties.
5. ALOE VERA It makes the skin smooth and glowing, hydrates the skin and relieves heat on the skin caused by sunburn. Excellent skin moisturizer.
6. SILK deeply stimulate the muscle tissue, retain the skin's natural moisture, preventing dryness, while absorbing excess sebum. For the acne prone, silk even contains anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Apply evenly on your face & neck. Do not over apply, little amount is always enough. Massage gently in an upward motion. Best to use after using CUPINE ALOEPA facial wash & FRUITTIE PORELESS toner spray. Gentle to use every night and even before applying your make up. 

It is in a plastic container with a twist-open cap and another cover inside. The packaging is like the other creams, nothing so special about it. 

The cream is thick but it doesn't bother me. It actually gives me an assurance that the consistency actually helps lock in the moisture and I was right. It feels heavy on the skin at first, but wait til it dries and absorbed by the skin. My skin feels so soft and supple when I wake up. My skin doesn't look dull rather it gives it a healthy glow. 

One thing I love about it is the scent. It smells like ummmm.. close to Bath and Body Works' Warm Vanilla Sugar. It's so yummy, like I want to taste it. Haha.

 This is how it looks on the back of my hand. So thick and opaque.

After applying it evenly on the skin, it doesn't look like you have something on it. But the skin is soft and super bango!

I also use this as my morning moisturizer. Since it is intended to be a night cream and they do not have a day moisturizer  I first asked Krave's specialist if I can also use this as an alternative. Gladly, it was okay. But I still requested them if they can formulate a day-moisturizer. So I apply a lesser amount on my face in the morning. The effect was good. But since it leaves my skin a little shiny, I apply Krave Skin Hydrator and Eliminator (REVIEW) as my powder/ primer/ finishing veil. After that, everything was perfect! And for maximum results, I use Cupine Aloepa Facial Wash and Fruttie Poreless Toner.
  • HITS: Scent | Consistency | Moisturizing effect | Can be purchased online (Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals or Women's Little Pleasures)
  • MISSES: The packaging: I wish it will be in a pump container or in a tube (for hygienic purposes) | Price: Quite expensive
  • RATING: 4.5 out of 5.
Do you have an oily-combination skin like me? If yes, what moisturizers work perfectly for you? Kindly share your facial routines, it might work for me as well. Thanks!

Etude House Easy Brow Pencil No.2: A Review

A woman's crowning glory! That's our hair and I believe that the eyebrows are included there. This small area of hair growth is very essential to accentuate one's facial features. Thus, like our hair, our eyebrows should be groomed to be presentable.

I do not have sparse eyebrows. Actually, my eyebrows are thick, long and dark. I guess it comes along with the fact that I have thick hair as well. 

When I was younger, I didn't mind if my brows are bushy, as in sabog talaga and kalat kalat. Until I came to reality that I needed to trim and groom them. I didn't know how to do it myself then so I regularly go to the salon for eyebrow shaping and threading. Oh my, threading was a lot of pain. But comparing it to just shaving, the hair grows slower.

It's just this year that I took the risk to shape my own brows. I read articles and watch youtube gurus how they do it. And guess what, I am more confident to do it by myself now.

Anyway, the eyebrow grooming is not complete without filling it. Even if my brows are thick, there are still spaces that needs to be filled in. This is my first eyebrow pencil and I am loving it. Just keep reading to know why.

I bought this at Etude House for Php138.00. They have two shades of this. I got the darker one to match my dark eyebrows.

What interests me when I first saw it was it is double-ended. It has a brow brush on the other side of the pencil. Well, nothing too fancy but I find it practical and space saver.

I was surprised at first when I saw the pencil because it was color gray. Haha! I even asked the sales lady if it is really like that, she said it was just the coating. LOL. 

The brush is like other brow brushes. It is soft, just enough to blend the product on the brows and remove the excess.

So here's how it looks on my brows. I love it because it looks so natural when blended properly.

Here's a full look of it on my face. During the days when I don't feel like wearing heavy makeup, I only groom my brows and use my Krave Oil Eliminator and Skin Hydrator (read review HERE) and I'm good to go.

  • HITS: Packaging | Color | Creamy | Easy to blend | Can be purchased in almost all leading malls nationwide
  • MISSES: Price | Limited color choices
  • RATING: 4.5 out of 5

Insights? Do you think I gave this product justice?
