Red by MIYU (A Lipstick for Valentines Day!)

Hello folks! How’s your weekend? Mine was a lot of preparation, quality time with the whole family, celebrating birthdays with my college friends and just stayed home with A. I never think that I still have time pa to blog again. Many drafts in my inbox that needed to complete.  Since Valentines Day is just around the corner,( though I and my partner is not a fan of it) I know that “ everything red “ much be seen and appreciated in VDay. Red lipstick is in too! Which one I could wear? I never had enough red. I never consider shopping for the red lipstick so I wonder if most of my reds are from colleagues and family.

3 in 1 lipstick

However, I tried the perfect red for me which is from Korean brand, Miyu. (Thanks my loves!)Woot!


What I love about this 3 in 1 product lipstick?

  1. Shade– different shade of red I know! There are many reds to choose from. Sometimes you might afraid whether it will suit your skin or not. But this falls under orange-red or even poppy red. I think anyone can pull it off.
  2. Finish– Red by MIYU is a matte lipstick, highly pigmented.
  3. Price– Looking for a steal or a splurge? This Red by MIYU is actually you can bought at set at P2750 with whitening cleanser and moisturizer as well.
  4. Longevity– I must say that it’s worth the price. You can wear it from day to night. It’s Valentine’s Day, after all. (but me, the usual working day (lol)

What I love: non-creasing and watery enough to cover my blemishes, affordable

What I don’t like about the product: little amount per tube, but worth the price

After I dab a foundation, I usually put it onto my under eye using fingertips or oval brush upwards. Its pigmentation lasted about 2-3 hours. I matched it with my Sleekmake up powder and you’re good to go!:)

This is perfect for an everyday look! What do you think? Is it worth to try? Share me your thoughts below:)


Cathy Doll Geisha Moteru Gel Liner in Black

I used to purchase liquid liners so when I saw a gel line from Cathy Doll, I know from the bottom of my heart, I should try this! Cathy Doll’s Geisha Moteru Gel Liner available in Red, Gold and this Jet black.

blog 350


About the Product: The Geisha Gel Liner has come with designed brush and pot which is 2g. This gel liner is affordable and costs P249 in the market.

blog 349


Pros: I love it which comes in a pot and designed brush. It’s brush helps you to perfect your cat’s eye though in some time, I having difficulty when applying but easily removes the excess.

blog 354

The texture of the gel is smooth and matte that would last on me about 4-6 hours. You can apply it thin or thick, whatever your mood’s desire. Hehe Good thing there’s manufacturing date and expiration date in the lower box of the packaging. We don’t want to use expired makeup, aren’t we?

blog 353

Cons: The brush wand is too small so it’s hard to control but still manageable in your allotted time:)

What can you say, guys? are u team liquid liner or gel liner? Shre your thoughts below:)

Review} MAC Amplified Crème Lipstick in Brick-o-la

Since work has been suspend due to bad weather, time permits me to review this long time MAC Amplified Crème lipstick . Mac lippies are love even they’re too pricey for a tube.

MAC Brick-o-la

Mac Brick-o-la is an Amplified crème finish look from the collection. The color is midtone berry shade that suits my skin color. This is one of my on the go lipstick. It just wearable for everyday especially when you are working in the government. It gives simple but polished look. I would suggest this color if you are not fan of vibrant color. This shade is gorgeous!

Mac brick o la

The texture is pigmented which it easily glides on the lips. You can feel the moisturizing and fuller appearance but my chapped lips didn’t heal. I must say, the color lasted for 4 hours including sipping and light meals in between. It leaves a stain on cups.

Maybelline Powder Matte in Nude Illusion

blog 209

It’s been a couple of months since Maybelline release their 15 shades of powder mattes. Like everyone who’s excited to buy from their collection, I attempt to get one since I had their Creamy mattes in four that I love but never had a chance to finish it further. I got mine in “Nude Illusion”

blog 210

Nude Illusion is a pinkish nude that for me is too light my skin. 1-3 swipes needed to fully covered and see the color on my lips. The texture is smooth and easy to glides on. It can last to 2-3 hours without eating.The packaging is same with Maybelline Creamy mattes but in orangey.

blog 207

What I love about the product: is very affordable at P299. The shade is perfect for everyday use. It doesn’t have scent compared to creamy mattes.

What I don’t like: is less pigmentation, too light for my lips.

November Sampleroom Haul!

Are you a makeup junkie or a skincare hoarder? I admit I spend a lot for just a lipstick which sometimes is such a waste because these lipsticks cannot be work on cheeks so other way is to buy blushes. As the time goes, I want to invest with skincare that will give my skin radiant and good skin. Sometimes we may be skeptical about face wash, to primers to moisturizers. So why not TRY BEFORE YOU BUY? Tagline from sampleroomph. Have you visit their site? On my latest haul:

Burts Bee Radiance Cleanser-First time to try it and amazed how it gently cleanse my skin and removes make up. I like the royal jelly smell and noticed that it really brightens my skin. It contains Jojoba beads that for exfoliating so no wonder it really purifies my skin. I think I could stick to it and begin to invest in full size.

Zenutrients Strawberry Lip Butter is always on my staple. I have the old packaging but I love the new one. It really moisturizes my lips which I bring wherever I go.The strawbeery hint leaves color on my lips too. Presently I recommend this to my friends who has a dry lips problem.


Cathy Doll Geisha Moteru Gel Eyeliner– I am fan of eyeliners so this one is a must, though I never tried any gel liner that comes in a brush. The oil-control and waterproof formula gives long lasting effects which is I still working on.

Silka Soap and Lotion (Shea Butter ) This works on any skin types. Its moisturizing effect and SPF23 helps to reduce dryness of my skin especially in cold areas. I didn’t noticed the whitening effects but I love how it pamper skin while protected from the sun. Good thing there is one with Avocado Oil and Milk protein variant. New scent to try on.

That’s all for my November Sampleroom Haul. What did you get?

Review: Sleek Makeup i-Divine Mineral Based Eyeshadow in Original

This palette was with me almost a couple of months but never used, ever. I am afraid that it looks gross on me cos I didn’t expert in applying. From a scratch, watching youtube and some basic guide let me to play it now.I love Sleek MakeUp brand cos it such an affordable but delivers right pigmentation. Their brand is offers wide collection and selling like hotcakes in the Philippines.


This eye shadow palette consists of 12 shades, 6 vibrant colors and other 6 neutrals. It contains a range of metallic shades from gold to ocean blue and pearlescent purple but includes a matte dark colour, ideal for definition or perfecting a classic smokey effect.

using one swipe

It looks more shimmery because it is mineral based. I’m having a hard time to blend plus I am a beginner.I used a benefit eye primer to last the application the whole day. I experiment blending from one shade to its lightest shade. (Will update soon!) Maybe I could do more.
