The Lipstick's Bestfriend: Lipcote

Lipcote is a lipstick sealer that has been in every lipstick lover's mouth for quite a long time already, but because i have just found my love for lipsticks recently. I didn't find a need for it in my vanity.
I keep getting a lot of request from my regular customers to carry this, so when i found the supplier i hoarded stocks! 
I felt the need to test and review this because i know almost three-fourths of our lady crowd loves lipstick, so this just might be what you are looking for.

First Beauty Box ~ Special Edition Snoe Glamourbox

Just so you guys know, this is my first every Beauty Box. One fateful night last week, i was thinking if i should try subscribing to some local beauty boxes, just for fun and experience. But since i have a lot of US samples and deluxe products i get for free from my shop's imports, i told myself: "Ok Fred, we are getting one. But just one ok, just to know what it feels like expecting a box you don't know what's inside."
I'm kinda a control-freak, and i have this fear that i might just get disappointed on the stuffs i'm going to get when the box arrives. But heck, if ever i didn't like the items in it, i can raffle it away or just give it as a freebie to my loyal shop customers.
So yeah, i subscribed 1month each for BDJ & Glamourbox. And after just 3 days of not-even waiting, i got my Glamourbox! Yey!

So here is the step-by-step unboxing of my first ever Beauty Box:

This box came in IN another box.

FOTD 01.24.14

Pardon the selfie. It's my first FOTD, so please be nice. Hihi~!
I just wanted to share to you girls what i wore yesterday. Fiancé and I were chosen to be Godparents of our niece in his Confirmation(Kumpil) by my (soon-to-be) sister-in-law. So i kept it simple and natural. If you've already been following me for quite some time in IG, you'll know how i love the No-Makeup-Makeup look!
And so far, i've mastered the look, at least on my face.

Actually this palette has been with me since 3rd quarter last year, i cannot even remember when i exactly got this. I was then at war with myself if i was gonna get the UD Naked2 or this one. But after researching thru other bloggers' reviews and vlogs, i decided to go with this palette. Since i think i can make more looks with the shade variation than the UD Naked2. But i'm not saying this one's better, i just prefer the shades more than the UD Naked2.

P.S. I vowed to keep myself from blabbering and just stick to a clean, short review. So help me God.


Sorry for the dirty box.

My Skincare Routine

I've been reading a lot of co-bloggers posting there Skincare Routine, and i was like: OMG! Those are tons of products!
So it really got me thinking of my own, and i can't help comparing it with others.
The truth is, i don't really think of my routine to much. I just use products that are necessary and keep it as few as possible.
But then again, everyone has the need of her own when it comes to skincare.

Fortunately, I was one of the lucky girls blessed with naturally clear skin. I get a pimple or two, if not, none at all in a month. And that is due to my monthly period.
And if i ever i develop a pimple, i don't really give much of a deal, cause it normally goes away, and if it leaves a mark it fades away in a week or two.

So let's get on to business, i bet this will be over quick!

Appreciation Post: My Staple Lippies (Drugstore/Highend)

A few months back, i wasn't really into lipsticks, and more of a tint or colored lip balm girl. But after catering for lot of orders of different kinds of lipsticks. I've become exposed to a whole new world of prettiness! From pretty packaging, to neon colors, to patterned boxes and different signature scents!

But despite all the glamorous tubes and vivid colors these lipsticks have, i find myself reaching for something else. Something i find myself comfortable with. Like killer high heels vs comfortable flats. On those days, where you're too lazy to pick what lipstick shade you want to use, subconsciously your hand picks up the same lipsticks over and over again.

These are the 2 lipsticks that I mostly use and abuse for the past months.
And now, i feel they deserve an Appreciation Post.
Because they were always there for me when i needed a friend on my undecided days, and because they are so flexible matching my every eye makeup and every outfit i choose to wear.

Thank you so much for bringing out the best in me on my vagueness!

For the love of GOLD!

I'm actually writing this post just to let you guys know i'm still here. I've just been so busy with a recent out-of-town event and when i got back i need to manage orders for the current US Preorders on my online shop (SumWear Co.). So busy, but hey, i'm not complaining. I love what i do.

Behold, all is Gold.

I just wanted to post a lucky shot i got when i was trying to get a good picture for my Current Beauty Favorites post. While i was putting all the scattered makeups back to my kit, i managed to spot on some items that are gold-lustered, and thought of taking them all and giving them a Victoria Secret Girls group shot! Cause all things made in gold are just plain FABULOUS, right?

Current Beauty Favorites Questionnaire

This actually is from my friends blog (check her out: Makeup Et Cetera), but i tweaked it a little bit. Since It's really hard for me to think of my favorites right now, too many, too overwhelming. And my mind definitely will shutdown if i think of all the makeups i love! 
So instead of making a list of: Beauty Favorites Questionnaire, i opted for a Current Beauty Favorites instead. The ones i am using right now, and in the top drawers of my vanity kit.

The Ultimate Gold Lipstick - YSL Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant #9


I cannot explain how thrilled i am to see the box of Sephora which i know contains this little pretty lipstick!
I have come across YSL Lipstick every month, on every package i import from the US, since my clients are regular users and some, collectors of this gorge lipstick. So i'm quite familiar with the feel and the smell, since i quality check each and every lipstick before sending them out.
So i told myself, why not give it a try? After all, i've been meaning to buy a new lipstick either than my usual MAC tubes.
So when another regular customer ordered one, i ordered my first one along with her order. 
I was really debating with myself between #9 Caress Pink or #29 Opera Rose.
But because i am a sucker for pink nude lippies, i opted for the #9 Caress Pink which is described as muted raspberry pink.
The other one is too pink for my taste.
