MINISO: Shopping Haul

Friday, November 25, 2016

Hey everyone! Since Christmas is just around the corner and parties are getting near, my mom and I took the time to haunt for gifts last weekend. Good thing my brother took us to MINISO in SM San Lazaro. If you haven't heard of or been to Miniso, you're not alone because I only got to know about it recently.

Apparently, Miniso is a Japanese designer brand focusing on providing excellent products and advocating genuine goods at a fair price and exceptional quality. This is why I am ecstatic that Miniso has finally landed the Philippine shores. There are currently three branches open, Robinson's Manila, SM San Lazaro and SM Manila. I just hope they get to open soon in Quezon City!

ESTEE LAUDER: Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Hello everyone! I'm ecstatic to share with you another rave on a product I've known and heard of from one of my YouTuber favorites, emilynoel83, the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup. I dreamt of owning one a couple of years ago but since I wasn't into using foundation on a daily basis back then, buying one was never a priority until today. My skin hasn't been in tip top shape since my melasma started to appear. This is why I eventually transitioned to using products offering more coverage so it only made sense to finally get my hands on this highly coveted foundation.

COTY AIRSPUN: Loose Face Powder

Sunday, November 6, 2016

Hello everyone! I've been seeing a lot of makeup "baking" with loose powder on YouTube video tutorials in the past months. Apparently, this technique has been around for a while and is actually used by makeup artists, theater actors, even drag queens to keep their makeup in place. Seeing how good this technique works on others, it got me really curious but a bit doubtful that I can pull off the same budge-proof look everyone's raving about. Most loose powders used by beauty gurus aren't budget-friendly but thankfully, some of them recommended an affordable yet good quality loose powder, the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder.
