Tony Moly + Personal Update

Hello!! Sorry, sorry, sorry, so sorry that I haven't updated this blog for more than a week! I was in a summer youth camp with my sister for 4 days and it took a couple more days after that to adjust again to life here in Manila. Haha, kidding! But seriously, the moment I got home, I passed out from exhaustion. Anyways, I might do a post about the camp once I've gathered enough pictures. Meanwhile, let me share this post that has been sitting here in my dashboard for weeks waiting for publication. I did it a few weeks ago but couldn't squeeze it between my product reviews just yet, I don't know why. I think it was waiting for this moment all along since I really need to replenish this blog with some beauty product lovin' posts! Let us begin!

I started liking Asian cosmetics when Etude House launched in the Philippines. I only bought local or US drugstore brands before that, but now that more Asian brands popped up in the beauty market, and not to mention these brands have the cutest packaging, I can't help but jump in to the Asian cosmetics craze. My latest eye candy? Tony Moly!

Before I buy anything, I make it a point to look the products up on the internet. I'm new to the brand so I haven't bought anything yet but here are some products from the that I've been eyeing.


1. Dear Me Petite Cotton BB Cream
2. Dear Me Petite Cotton Pact

I found these two really cute! Their size makes them perfect for a crowded makeup kit.


3.Berry Berry Lovely Stick
4. Kiss Lover Lipstick
5. Milky Tint Pink
6. Milky Tint Peach
7. Backstage Smoothie Matte Lipsticks
8. Petite Bunny Gloss Bar
9. Fruit Gloss

Can you tell what I like lip products very very much? LOL. The last two sets are so cute!


10. Double Needs Mascara
11. Cats Wink Mascara

I'm not sure if Double Needs Mascara is really blue but I think Cats Wink Mascara is so adorable!


12. Pocket Bunny Face Mist
13. Tomatox Magic White Massage Pack

Pocket Bunny Face Mist is so cute and Tomatox is really effective (I heard)!


14. Berry Trendy Hair Styling Mist

I really want to try this!


15. Lacquer Glitter
16. S/S 2012 Collection

Pretty colors!

By the way, last night, I checked my mail and found a couple of messages from my blog visitors. Thank you so much. I really appreciate the kind words! I really felt happy getting positive feedback from writing about beauty and makeup. It's something I enjoy and love doing and to be praised by you girls, I am very grateful. I visited your blogs and I gotta say, yours are so much more interesting than mine! Some of your blogs, I already know about before I even got your messages. Thank you so much! I'm working on a follow widget so we can all stay connected but as you all know, GFC shut down and I don't know where to get a similar widget. Help me, please? :(

Face of the Day: New Everyday Makeup!

Hi! what do you think of this new look? I wasn't planning on creating a Face of the Day post today. I just wanted to try the new shadows I have from Etude House. I really liked the final look so I decided to share it with you. I'll have you know that I got inspired by Korean actresses. I really want to focus on creating more natural looks for myself. I think this will be my default everyday makeup! I'm also going to talk about how I did this look. ;)

I apologize for the blurred photos because this is going to be one picture heavy post!

April Favorites

Hello, there! As promised, I am now back to my usual beauty posts! To start off, I'm going to talk about last month's favorites. I wasn't able to do one for March because I honestly didn't wear makeup that much. Last April though, I acquired more beauty products and the summer vacation gave me time to experiment with different makeup looks as well as test out different makeup products whenever I went out. I'm probably going to bore all of you but if you like Etude House, keep on reading! Without further ado, here are some products that topped my list last month:

Etude House Dream On Pact is my go- to product right now. It's perfect for mid-day touch-ups since the powder feels really light. I used to bring powder foundations that can be a little too thick/ heavy for touch-ups. I like this because it doesn't leave my face feeling cakey. I absolutely hate heavy makeup on my face considering how hot the summer days are. Etude House Face Designing Brightener photographs really well! I cannot imagine highlighting and contouring without this!  I love its scent too!

Etude House Drawing eye brows makes me wish I had discovered it sooner. It's an eyebrow pencil that looks waxy/ powdery in photographs and in real life! I used to have problems with eyebrow makeup because it either looks too subtle, or too much. With this product, I can keep on shaping and drawing my brows without the product building up and looking too fake on me. This makes my life so easy! Pick this up, pick this up! Etude House Oh~m'Eye Lash mascara is a cheap alternative to my Majolica Majorca Lash Expander. It really lengthens my lashes! I'm glad I found this so I don't have to spend too much on lengthening mascaras anymore. They're good for only 3 to 6 months anyway. :(

I almost gave up on M.A.C Macroviolet and Blacktrack Fluidline. I gave them another try though and so far, I'm loving them! I guess I hated them at first because I wasn't used to gel liners yet. I also use these as eye shadow bases. I like Macroviolet because it's a great alternative to the usual bold black liners. The plum shade is perfect for brightening and defining the eyes. Macroviolet works better than Blacktrack in terms of staying power too. Blacktrack is perfect for my dark smokey eye looks! I love that its finish is matte because I'm not a fan of glossy liners at all.

I thought I didn't need Etude House Color Me Nude Lip Concealer since any concealer might just do the same thing. I decided to get it because I wanted to mimic the "ulzzang lip." So far, I love it! It turns the edges of my lips invisible! I like wearing this with Etude House Pink Tonic Lip glass. I'd been looking everywhere for this tint/gloss. Don't be fooled by the clear formula. This colors your lips a beautiful pink like you wouldn't believe! The gloss formula also helps my lips appear fuller. I really should get the other two shades. 

Another lippie favorite of mine is Etude House Miss Tangerine Follow Me Tint! This is the cutest hint of color on your lips! Go get one for yourself now!!!

I love Nivea Sun Whitening Daily Face Fluid for its high SPF and instant whitening effect to the skin.  This makes my skin look so much better when I'm too lazy to put anything else on. It protects it from the sun too! Olay All-in-One Fairness Day Cream made me notice a radiance on my face that wasn't there before. I have been staying up late like crazy the past month and thankfully, no serious break outs have popped up! It might just be all thanks to this!
