NOTD + New Shoes!

After almost a month of no nail polish, decided to treat my nails for color. I chose pumping red this time. I'm super inlove with the redness of this nail polish not to mention that I bought it for only 18pesos! What a steal! I'm definitely getting more colors from this brand called Bichun. I search the net and found out that this is a Chinese product. I just hope the chemicals used in these are safe:)

Yay for new shoes! I got these lovely oxford/brogues shoes yesterday at Bayo. The first time I saw these I knew I just have to get them. So after accompanying my mother at the department store I went back there to buy one. This style comes in two different colors: black/white and brown/white. It retails at 1,095.00pesos. At first I wanted to get the black/white ones but I realized that these brown/white one looks better. I just love the vintage look of these shoes!

Rebonded hair + New haircut

Aah lazy days! I just wanna share to you guys my newly rebonded hair, some 3 weeks ago. Well, not really new anymore. Haha. Anyway, it was my 3rd time to have my hair rebonded and eversince then, I love the results. I don't really have curly hair before, just thick and a little bit wavy. I envy girls with nice straight hair that's why I decided to have my hair rebonded. I do this yearly, after noticing inches of wavy hair growing back again.

The first picture shows the results, but then I decided to have it layered to look better. Then the second one shows the result after I had it layered at a salon here in our place. It's a new hair salon (Korean inspired), and they had a promo of 50pesos only for haircut, so I gave it a try. By the way, that is my original hair color.

What are your opinions of rebonded hair? Share your insights!

Review: Revlon Photoready Make-up + Colorburst Lipstick

Hello everyone! How was your day? As for me, it was a very memorable day for we celebrated my mom's birthday today. We surprised her by giving her a bouquet of white and pink roses. So sweet! She loves flowers so much that I knew she would really appreciate our little something for her. We also cooked great foods and invited close relatives. It was a fun day for all of us.

Anyway, this entry is purposely one for my review on Revlon's products. I know it took me quite a long time to do this. So sorry for that ;)


According to their site:

Revlon PhotoReady™ Makeup - for poreless, airbrushed skin in any light. Photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to erase every flaw. Complete, yet undetectable coverage. Soft, luminous finish.

- Oil free
- Fragrance free
- SPF 20

I got the 006 medium beige
Retails for 995php
         when blended onto skin, shimmer quite visible

My say:

  • Provides a good coverage, coverage is buildable
  • It covers my imperfections
  • Comes with a hygienic pump bottle
  • Looks flawless and smooth
  • With a variety of shades to choose from
The downside:
  •  I have to admit that my face gets oily after several hours, but I really have an oily skin so I think that's just normal :D
  • I heard it has shimmery effect, I noticed that too when I swatched it at the back of my hand, but once you apply it n your face, it's barely noticeable


According to their site:

-Instant burst of rich, true color with a featherlight feel
-Elasticolor™ technology provides immediate color release and hugs lips with a burst of weightless color that  feels like a second skin 

-Available in range of 20 gorgeous shades

I got the Mauve and Soft Nude Lippies
Retails for 575php

                                                                  lipstick swatches

My say:
  • I am inlove with these lipsticks!
  • The packaging looks sleek and sophisticated; it has quilted finish on 2 sides of the lipstick
  • The top part of the packaging also tells you a lot of the color of whats inside
  • Revlon logo carved on the lipstick
  • Very moisturizing, it doesn't dry out my lips that much
  • You may skip applying lipgloss because the lipstick itself has a glossy finish
The downside:
  • May melt when kept inside your bag for a long time, as what my Mom experienced with her lipstick.

                                                    Please excuse my ugly looking lips=)

#70Soft Nude is my fave so far. Its a very pale nude. It gives me a very fresh and sweet look. I like it that it compliments my skin tone very much. Definitely a must try for girls who are looking for the best nude lipstick.

#Mauve is a pretty pinkish lilac shade. I don't know how to describe it well. The color is buildable, in my picture I applied 2 layers.  I also love this shade since it looks so natural on me.

Overall I would rate Revlon Photoready Foundation and Colorburst lipsticks 4.5/5

Eclipse Movie

Finally the day has come for the opening of Twilight Saga's third movie installment - Eclipse. Goodthing for us here in the Philippines, the day of the opening was also a holiday since our it is also the inaguration of our new president Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino. My sister and I planned that day to watch the movie Eclipse for both of us are die hard fans of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. And I heard a lot of good raves about the making of the movie, in addition to the new director assigned to it.

We went to the mall earlier, just in time for the opening. We knew already that there would be a lot of people lining up early because it was a holiday and basically no class for the students all eager to watch the movie. Our instincts was right, the moment we went near the movie theater, a couple of people were already in queue. We were the 15th persons probably in line but as the clock was ticking, yet the theater hasn't opened moviegoers we growing in number. The movie started at 12:35 and luckily we were able to buy tickets an hour before it started.

As the movie started, we can hear a lot of fangirls screaming especially when Jacob Lautner's body is shown. Haha Oh well, you can't blame them for he is really sexy and has grown into a man. On the other hand, the casts really did well on their characters. They have grown so much compare to the first movie Twilight. The director also did a very good job. I would say, this is the best among the other movies. I am looking forward to the next one.
