june/july favorites

Ramadhan khareem to all my brothers and sisters in Islam.. yes i know Eid is almost about to end and here I am sharing again to you my monthly favorites. This last two months was really tough for us, my mom in law died due to cancer, that's the reason I've mia for two months, i barely make time to open my instagram or read blogs. I know it's really hard for us to accept this circumstances in our family but this is ALLAH's (swt) plan.. everything happens for a reason. Still alhamdullilah for everything!  anyway I don't want to talk much here,ummm I'm just not comfortable enough sharing my personal problems here( please don't get me wrong :) ) I'm teary eyed now :(

These are the products that I'm currently obssesed with. I make use with the brush holder that comes with the REal techniques core collection since im travelling a lot lately, i just dumped in all the brushes that i often used and im good to go. 

MAc studio fix spray, i got this product on a whim. I know I can get other products with its price But I initially settled to get this one. I used this before applying makeup when my skin feels really dry and tight and use this as setting spray too.. and oh I use this too when i fell that my powder foundation feels really cakey, i just spray this on my face.

Maybelline Rocket mascara in very black, after seeing various youtubers raved on this gahhh I have to get one too and I must say I LOVE this mascara... when it says volume they mean it! another great product from maybelline.
Maybelline magnum mascara, I like to apply this on my lower lashes because I don't use my rocket on lower lashes just because I have oily lids it tends to smudged. Okey it's really obvious My top pick for brand mascara is Maybelline!!
Real tecniques brushes (buffing and detailed brush)-these two are my most used in the core collection.  I super duper love these brushes, I use the buffing brush for liquid foundation and blends in really nicely on the skin and streak free too, the hair is really soft and not scratchy at all!! amaze-balls!!!! I use the detailer brush to conceal any dark/pimple marks on my face and I like the size and works perfectly on me.

Maybelline gel liner 36 hour, this is the newer reformulated version which was recently launch. I only have good words to say about this product and this one deserves to be reviewed on my  blog. If you're looking for a gel liner that wont smudge,smear,will last whole day and not pricey you definetly need to try this. 

and last but not the least is a non makeup related, I'm loving this florence flats from  tonic bags and shoes

What I'm loving this month (may)

Summer has officially bid goodbye
And I'm actually loving it.. I'm not a total fan of summer, just because the weather here in the Philippines is tropical and it almost feels like its always summer all year round. I don't get to enjoy that much going out on the sun because my skin easily gets really dark which I prefer my skin to be a little fair, and plus I dont know how to swim so yah I don't enjoy the beach. The only thing I enjoy during a beach trip is the food! (c'mon who doesn't love food ok?!)

Ok now here's my monthly favorites, this month will be extra special because I included some fashion favorites which I think I would be including starting today.

*cheap (fake lashes) I've been playing a lot lately with falsies and these cheapo falsies are awesome, I suggest that if you're a beginner one go for something that won't broke your wallet. I also wear this on special occasion like wedding or parties!

*benefit boing concealer this is the only concealer that I've hit pan,I like to use the medium shade on my pimple marks and so far it's long lasting, I've been thinking about to get the full size one but my friend ayen suggested I should get the shiseido and to be honest I'm now contemplating wether to buy the full size,nonetheless this is my favorite so far( aside from the Mac)

*Mac cream color base LUNA- I use this as a base to my neutral eyeshadow, and works perfectly, little goes a long way. This can be used as highlighter too but I won't use this on my face, as you all know oily face is my bestfriend

*Moroccan Argan oil hair masque - I bleach and dyed my hair last February, and I tell you it's the worst thing ever that I've done to my hair... I'm actually murdering my hair for no reason at all! Bleaching hair can make your hair dry I mean reallllyyyyy dry!! Thanks to this, I'm slowly getting my hair to it's normal can get this at watsons for less than 200 pesos I think

*Camay shower gel in Creme Vanilla- i prefer body wash over soap and this one smells absolutely good

*Celeteque Advanced Anti-aging oil- this is a makeup remover but I stopped using this on my whole because I had really bad breakouts last month and I was too afraid to use any oil on my face, instead I just use this to remove my eyemakeup and works good. Doesn't sting nor irritate my eyes too.

Avon Advance techniques frizz control- in not realty high maintenance when it comes to my hair, a shampoo and conditioner will do but since I bleached my hair, I want to Put an extra little effort to restore its original condition since it gone really dry

*Celine inspired bag from MAGS- a local boutique I like since highschool, they are not expensive and they are updated on trends every season. When I first saw this bag I was really hooked, reminds me of CELINE phyton bag which I can't afford for now. The bag is roomy enough to put all my things including my babies' abubots!

*Victoria's secret in love spell- I got this on my unexpected visit to VS store at the NAIA airport and decided to check the items, I didn't planned buying on anything but when my eyes saw this , I said to myself "oh! this was my favorite during highschool" I have to get one.

*Flats from PRIMADONNA- I like the studded details, been using this since summer

And last but not the my watch from Fossil- its a men's watch perfect for my liking,I've been wanting to buy the Michael kors one but my supplier doesn't have any stocks so I just settled for this. I love the white and red stones that adorns the watch itself. So stylish and chic and of course it's a gold one

Sothat's it for my monthly favorites! Hope You like it.. Share some your favorites and would love to read them too!! Ciao bellas!!!

Favorites(jan/feb/march/april edition)

Hello blogging world! Since I haven't posted any favorites for the last 3 months I thought of making one. I just gathered what products that I always use and what I've been using nonstop up to this date.

Revlon color whipped foundation in nude- this by far one of the best drugstore foundation,I thought I've found my love in their colorstay line but since I found this, ahhh it was love too.Stays on semi matte without being oily for hours,since I live in a tropical country I really don't find it practical for me to use heavy foundation coz it only end up cakey and gross on face. Doesn't feel heavy at all when applied on the face,like it almost feels you're not wearing foundi on.

The Balm Bahama Mama bronzer- I like this because it doesn't have any shimmer at all, and goes well with my medium skin tone

WetnWild color icon palette in Comfort Zone)-this has been a constant staple when it comes to my eye makeup,Personal favorites are the highlight colors and the brown one,great for everyday.The color itself are so pigmented,definitely would repurchase wetnwild palettes.

Garnier BB eye roll on- basically concealing and depuffing are it's role,the cooling effect was superb. But I only highly recommend this to those who don't want to cover up that much when it comes to undereye problems. If you have in need of heavy coverage concealer then this one's not for you.

Lush lip scrub in popcorn- I was actually planning to get the bubblegum but almost all of the stores that I visited was out if stock, and the only available is in this variant. Since I was so eager to get a lip scrub, I got this na Lang. The smell of the popcorn was a potion, I got so hooked that I always use this almost everyday,and I tell you if you're obsessed with lipstick might as well as get lipscrub to perfect that pout. Who wants a dry chappy lips Nwe??!!

Artist Studio angled blush brush- if you're a constant visitor of LAndmark then you've probably encountered this brush,the hair is soft and doesn't shed too

Mac lipsticks in MYTH,LICKABLE, and RONNIE RED/AVON in make out red- these are the only lipsticks I've been wearing since January

Nyx lip liner in bloom- this goes well with my LICKABLE and make out red lipstick

CELETEQUE DermoScience™ Restorative Ultra-Lifting Concentrated Serum - one of my favorite samples from sample room, I use this religiously every night and I noticed that my eyes were less tired looking(if that makes any sense).

So that's it for now and I hope you share some of your monthly favorites. CIAO!!

Lipstick of the week: Mac Archie's collection in Ronnie red

If you're a fan of Mac then probably you've read lots or reviews and rave about this collection, as of this moment This limited edition is for sure almost sold out even online. Imagine when this was launch here in philippines it's freakin sold out especially the lipsticks!

I was hesitant and didn't planned in buying anything from this collection,because I prefer the classic black bullet tubes lying around my makeup traincase. The only limited edition that I own was from Give me Liberty of London in Blooming lovely way back in 2010 I think.So what made me decide in getting this? Because I was eyeing to get the famous ruby woo and when I tried it on in Mac glorietta,sad to say it doesn't suit me. My husband told me without any hesitation "hon di bagay sayo,di ka Anne Curtis" what the??!! Ok I wasn't really mad at him,and even thank him for telling the truth..when I looked at the mirror I'm like ok di nga bagay! The resident m/u artist from Mac was nice enough to entertain me, her name was Sharon (I think) she was patient enough to test red lipsticks on me but end up buying lickable.

So when the Archie's collection was launched I patiently read reviews on their lipsticks and so finally I settle for Ronnie red,this was rated 5.0 from how good is that?!
My search for perfect red lipstick is over.    

My photos doesnt give justice on how this lipstick looks like in person, im using my iphone.


I must admit i super like the packaging,reminds me when i was in gradeschool when i was so hooked in readng Archies comics

Lipstick mark that I swatch the day before I took photos

What I like

Stays on for almost 6 hours on me (with snacking in between)
Label says its matte finish but Doesn't dry out your lips
Longevity is pretty awesome
Suits almost akin color
Doesn't scream bright red (thanks to its pink undertone)
Wearable enough to be worn on daytime
It's so pigmented
Applies on smoothly like dream
Doesn't settle on cracks of my lips( which I experience on almost all of my matte lipsticks

What I don't like
Limited edition

I think this lipstick will be my best friend for a couple of months now, I was never a fan of red lipsticks since I was more into pinks and nude but hey I think I found the perfect red for my skin tone. Wish me luck I won't be running out of this since this is limited edition

Here's moi wearing Ronnie red
