The Low Down On Argentina Bacon Norte

December 12, 2016
Sometime last October, I saw this ad from the Argentina Meats FB page:

Together with the rest of the Facebook world, I got so excited about it. I'd check various groceries if it's already out 2-3x a week. I just couldn't find it! Two months passed and frankly, my excitement's already died down. Busied and moved on (LOL) from it, I was getting bottled olives last Thursday at Rustan's Marketplace in Forbes when I chanced on this:

Wow. It's tiny! For Php 16 something though, one can't quite complain. I bought 4 cans because I was already too sure that one is not enough for me more so for Twin (the biggest bacon fan I personally know).

Get Camilla Luddington's Look with Sleek MakeUP

Do you watch Grey's Anatomy? After so many seasons (and countless character deaths), I'm still hooked on it! I particularly got my telly groove back because of Camilla Luddington's screen presence. I just love her face! Off the series, she's rarely seen all made up and whenever she is, she's my absolute girl crush.

Sleek MakeUP sent me the lot below and my unboxing hour reminded me so much of 3 of my favourite Camilla looks. I thought -- why not create a cheatsheet for our mutual reference? :)

Go Wild For Christmas With The Body Shop

November 29, 2016
Confession: our household shops like cray at The Body Shop during the holiday season. With deals so hard to pass up on, we stash up on our lengthy list of "essentials" for giving and our home.

This year, they have presents as low as Php 150 that are guaranteed to bring good cheer. These irresistibly, shiny globes? Only Php 1595 each! Not a bad price to pay for a 60ml shower gel, 50ml body butter, 50ml sugar scrub, 60ml body lotion.

I had the chance to toy around this season's hottest scents and I'm head over heels the Spiced Apple (green) line. It's very fresh and fruity, exactly how I like my scents. The Vanilla Chai (cream) line is warm and rich (I can't wait for the chilly weather to envelope the metro!) while the Frosted Berries (red) is as fresh as the Spiced Apple line but definitely heaps juicier!

BFF Gift Ideas from Girlstuff Forever

November 25, 2016

"Wine, chocolate, and nail lacquer in a box? What good did I do in this lifetime?" Those are the exact words I uttered upon unboxing GirlStuff Forever's recent box of treats. As a big fan of their nail polish and accessories, you can tell that I was over the moon to receive two of their gift sets: the megxsolique Gift Set and the 2016 Holiday Collection.

The Cathy Doll AA Magic

November 24, 2016

I just came home from the Cathy Doll event with the girls and I couldn't quite wait to share these new products with all of you! The AA (Automatic Aura) Matte Powder Cushion Oil Control SPF 50 PA +++ and Cream SPF 45 PA +++ were locally launched and everyone's wildly impressed by this duo.

Until December comes around, these products are exclusively sold by Zalora. The cushion compact and cream are sealed through and through for your protection -- through a sticker sealed box and plastic seals on the packaging.

The AA Matte Powder Cushion Oil Control SPF 50 PA +++ (Php 1100 at Zalora) is available in 3 shades you could barely tell from the photo above: Light Beige, Natural Beige, and Sand Beige. The variance between the shades is huge (swatches below!) and I'm in between Natural Beige and Sand Beige. What's really impressive about this product is the coverage. It's medium to heavy and really covers imperfections (girlll even some of my light-toned, flat moles were concealed) in a few pats. It's cooling, matte, and oil-free; everything I wanted in a foundation!
Bid farewell to glossy finishing, light textured, and non coverage that ruins your day. Introducing for the first time, a matte finishing AA Cushion for an automatic aura complexion as desired. This oil-control formula comes with the latest innovative airy foundation technology to provide a cooling sensation while delivering Auto Aura, Anti-Acne and Anti-Aging effects to the skin. Moreover, this fascinating item contains Tea Tree Oil Extract that helps to reduce the occurrence of acne and Korean Herb Extracts that helps to fade off marks and dark spots caused by acne. Titanium Dioxide helps to brighten skin tone for a naturally smooth appearance, controls oil all day long and prevents the dullness of skin. This item is well-suited for every skin type including sensitive skin.
