TRESemmé is finally here

I saw TRESemmé’s TV commercial a few weeks back and I was really glad that they are finally here! I’m no stranger with the brand. I first stumbled upon it early this year in Hong Kong when I was searching for a heat-protectant spray.

I’m so glad I bought it cause it really helps keep my hair healthy even if I blow dry or curl it almost everyday. Plus, it helps keep the curls last longer too.

L.A. makeup madness: Smoked

It was July 10 when I heard about Urban Decay Cosmetics new Smoked palette. I was so excited over it and I couldn’t wait to get one. It looks promising and definitely worth buying.

So when I got the chance to drop by Macy’s I was absolutely ecstatic when I saw the Urban Decay Smoked palette on display. I just knew I had to get it! I didn’t wait a second longer and just bought it.

L.A. makeup madness: Revlon Lipsticks

I love lipsticks from MAC but one drugstore brand that I have heard raves about are from Revlon. Although Revlon is widely available here in the Philippines, their collection is not as extensive than in the U.S. I read in an article by Total Beauty, that a great cheap swap for MAC’s Lady Danger is Revlon’s Orange Flip. And since the MAC counter that I visited was out of that shade, as I previously mentioned, I was on the hunt for the Revlon alternative.

Along the way, I found some other interesting Revlon Lipsticks. Here’s the lineup: Moon Drops lipstick in Orange Flip, Colorburst lip butter in Sweet Tart, and Super Lustrous lipstick in Berry Haute.

‘La Roseraie’

In the previous post, I shared my excitement over Lancôme ‘La Roseraie’ Illuminating Powder, a beautiful blush-illuminating powder combo.

Using my flat top brush, I brushed through the blush (the flower part) and applied it on my cheeks. On the first two swipes, the soft pink color was more visible, but after a while it became sheer to the point that it took me four to five times swiveling my brush on the product. My excitement was nowhere to be found after.

The Backup Powder

I’ve always been an NC30 skin tone (in Mac Studio Fix powder equivalent), but summer came and the beach beckoned me to enjoy the cool water. Lo and behold, my skin was sunburned. I was really tan, and now close to NC43.

Good thing, I have a darker shade powder I sometimes use for contouring. My Motives by Loren Ridinger in Honey saved me from buying another powder that I’m only going to use for a few months.








The packaging of this powder is heavier compared to MAC’s studiofix. And instead of using the thin powder puff that comes with Motives’ powder, i either use my kabuki brush from Body Shop or my retractable brush from Muji, which I also carry in my purse.
