Walking Down the Aisle with the TenTen Bella Donna Collection

While I'm so far from being a bride as I type this, I can't help but wonder what's it like to choose the most flattering nail color to seal the deal with. Cause you know, priorities of an NOTD enthusiast! :) 

I knew I was in for a treat when I got this box from TenTen in the mail. Unboxing it was a totally different story. It made me gush with joy as if I'm really a bride-to-be! The box even came in with a personal note (love it!) and a three insert product sheet that were printed on heavy paper as if it were wedding invites.

Get Your Cheek Game On With K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Cheek Tints

I love, lovelove getting a good and lasting flush on my cheeks. I used to have plenty of colours to choose from every morning until I started taking skin care seriously. By putting my skin as priority, I need to purge makeup more frequently to avoid breeding bacteria farms at home (ewww). I had to slim down my "blush bar" to colours and formulas I can use up for a 12 months at the most for powder and 6-8 months for cream. These are my favourite formulas because I have normal to borderline combination skin on my cheeks. They just seem to blend and hold up nicer than liquid on me.

I chanced on these K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Cheek Tints in Osaka last December and wanted to grab the orange one (anticipating summer) but there's no tester in sight. I passed up on it hoping we'd have it locally for a tester and a neat translation of the packaging. I may have been a good girl lady cause both wishes have been granted! :)

My V&M Naturals Dark Spots Be Gone Haul

It's been a while since I got something from V&M Naturals. I discovered them in Multiply from what seemed like lifetimes ago when the beauty forums were all cray cray about emu oil. I used to frequent the beach (twice a month at least) and their emu oil's saved me from a lot of potential wrinkles, scars, and sunburn. Fast forward to 2018, they've got everything covered from your face, to your body, to your even your home!

They recently announced their huge 10th anniversary sale and I took that opportunity to snag one of my favourite local face and body scrubs, Clear Y Rosy and more. While my recent travels have been fruitful and well-deserved, I didn't expect to merit a lot of insect bites and breakouts along the way. These insect bites have left some dark spots on my arms and legs. :( Determined to get rid of them I thought, can V&M Naturals' highly raved brightening products help me reverse these marks?

Cheeky & Juicy K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Lip Tint Sticks

If you're embracing the plush, super moisturized, and hint-of-colour lip look (like I am!) then these K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Lip Tint Sticks (Php 795) might be your cup of tea. They promise to hydrate, protect, and soften the lips while leaving a "long-lasting subtle sheer stain". Housed in the most chica packaging, I like how I can stash these sleek bullets even into my smallest minauderies.
