Who doesn’t like affordable makeup or anything really? Well, I was roaming around Watson’s the other week to browse through products and just check out what’s new. I did see some promising new products but I had to put a lot of restraint on myself not to buy so much. Instead, I treated myself on a couple of Elf Matte Lip Color.
I love checking out new products and I love it more when they are homegrown. It was my first time to see products from Snoe in the market. Maybe it has been a while since I visited the beauty department. But last Sunday while at Landmark, I came across the brand Snoe.
I was lured in by the creative packaging, almost comic strips-style, with playful and witty names of the products. As I was reading the ingredients, I saw that it was local! And that made me even more interested. So I grabbed a few…
Just to enumerate, I got the Poudre Extraordinaire in Vanilla Creme Light, Hair Heroes Intense hair conditioner, It’s Oat-K It’s Alright! hydrating facial mist and the Beso Balm lip sugar polish.
Even if we don’t enjoy four season in the Philippines, the rainy season gives us a reason to dress warmly and sport some darker lips.
Here’s my take on it.
Plus, I partnered it with a darker nail polish.
Dare to go darker? What’s the darkest lip color you have worn?

Nude lips, matte lips, and iridescent eyes are just some of this month’s hottest trends in beauty. And these are just perfect for this rainy season. I’m not so sure about the white on white. Definitely not applicable here in the Philippines.
I just heard some very good news from a close friend of mine that NYX cosmetics will be available in malls soon. No I am not just talking about resellers bringing it here. I mean there will be a physical store by NYX in the Metro.
My friend got the information from this blog saying that the first store will open at the Annex of SM North Edsa. According to the blog, it would be “at the upper ground floor and would open in June.”
When I read it, I just wanted to rush to the mall and check out if it really is true. I am a true sucker for NYX products, especially their lip products. I am just so excited! I will investigate and check this out myself.
If any of you have information about this, please please let me know. I would really really really appreciate it!
I am grateful to be blessed with great genes when it comes to my skin. And I maintain my skin’s condition with a simple skin care regimen. For me, I have several trusted products that have been effective for me. My routine is morning and evening cleansing, toning, and moisturizer. But more on that later.
I had some skin problems when I was in Beijing and when I got back in the Philippines.
When I was in Beijing, the weather was so cold. One of the coldest days, we experienced 3 degrees Celsius cold. The cold, I can take, but it was the cold wind that makes it hard to tolerate. My skin took a toll when I experienced what I suspect to be windburn.
So I spent some limited time in Beijing last week, the cold was all I could really remember distinctly. The wind blew and sent shivers to my spine, making my teeth clatter. But, even when I feel like frozen on the ground I’m standing on, I still had to look good.
I’ll share with you my favorite looks for the short trip.
I just came back from Beijing China and I still can’t believe how cold it was there; considering I was there last week of March. Usually by that time, the weather won’t dip to 3 degrees Celsius anymore. But it did.
I had to seriously protect my skin from the cold, this means, extra extra moisturizing.
I brought along 3 important skin care products with me, that instantly became my best friend while in Beijing.
