Product Review: Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder (Fitted for Contouring)

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you're all having a wonderful week. Anyway, this blog post is another product review of my current contour powder. Actually, it's not really a contouring makeup but a pressed powder. Why? Let me explain.

I bought this product during our Euro Trip because I didn't like the bronzer I was using that time. It was too red for my skin tone that I found it unnatural looking. I tried searching for bronzers in different European drugstores but I didn't find one with a matte finish and has a hint of yellow undertones.

But I realized that maybe I should look for a darker shade of powder instead. Why foundation? First, foundations have wider spectrum  of shades. It can cater to different undertones. Plus, it's also long lasting and can provide the coverage that you want.

So finally, I found one that's affordable yet fitted all the criteria I've been looking for. It's Maybelline Fit Me (in 355 "Coconut")!

Paris le Jour (Collab with Ave Royd and Aileen Clarisse)

Hello everyone! How's your week going? Here's a quick post on another collab photo shoot with my dear friends.

When we were in Paris, we had a few hours to spare before our dreamy dinner cruise along the River Seine. With that, Ai, Ave and I decided to do an impromptu photo shoot. Who wouldn't? Everyone dreams of a photo shoot in the streets of Paris, so we took advantage since we're there anyway.

Makeup Tutorial: Simple Neutral Eye Makeup

Hello Ladies! Here comes another blog post for the week but this time around, it's a tutorial. Finally! Haha! After my eyebrow tutorial, I finally had the guts to post another one.

Don't worry cause this tutorial is so easy. I tried to come up with a simple look which I think anyone can do. I also used colors that are very wearable and easy to find. This look is very versatile and perfect for any occasion. No special blending skill is needed to achieve this.

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 - Your One Stop Shop

Have you visited a site that’s a one stop shop for girls who can’t get enough of fashion and makeup? I personally hate it when my personal site is bombarded with pictures of items on sale. As much as possible, I want to separate my ka-KIKAYAN from my social life and share it only to people who find it interesting too. Well girls, I think I found a social networking site that caters to our fashion and beauty needs.

I just recently discovered Clozette(, which is a SEA Partner of US-based Glam Media (another big name in social networking), through another makeup guru. Clozette members consist of women from the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and other parts of the world.

Why is it exactly a one stop shop? Members of Clozette are not only given the freedom to share fashion or beauty tips, photos, items and lookbooks but it’s also a place for shopping! What more can you ask for?  You can either shop until you drop or create your own store for FREE.

After signing up (which is super easy and fast btw), I posted my photos on my closet. Like I said, you get to share your fashion and beauty interests. Also, you get the chance to visit other’s virtual closet too. You can ‘Like’ and comment about it, just like other social networking sites.

But of course, you have to visit the best part….the Bazaar (! In this section, you can find different categories to choose from or even post items you wish to sell and create your own store. 

Believe it or not, creating a store is an easy peasy and will only take you 20 minutes. (Visit

But since I’m not a seller, I go window shopping. Haha! By just clicking the item, you’ll be able to see the full details of the product and its price.

I think you girls should check out now and give it a try. Anyway, it’s for FREE and who knows, you might actually find the item you’ve been looking for. :)

Product Review: Maybelline Hypersharp Liner ( A New Fine Favorite)

Happy Monday everyone! We all hate Mondays, don't we? I just had a huge fight with EDSA traffic this morning. Ugh. Well, I hope this post will somehow lessen your hatred cause we all want a lovely start.

This post will give you my full-length review on a relatively new product of Maybelline. If you still remember, I've been in search for a good liquid liner after trying out E.L.F. pen liners. Good news! Looks like I've found it! It's getting raves already from different bloggers and makeup gurus because of its quality. I am so happy that Maybelline Philippines brought it here.

Sorry for the faded packaging, it's been sitting in my kit everyday.
