Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks

Leave a Comment
In case I haven't stressed it enough on this blog, I'm a sucker for matte lipsticks. It's really my preference of lipstick texture.

My favourite drugstore brand, Maybelline New York, released their creamy matte lipsticks last year in the states. I was cynical at first to try it because the brand is never known for matte - 98% of their lipsticks has a moisturising texture no matter what.

But the word 'matte' kept haunting me and before I know it, I already have 8 tubes from this creamy matte line.

Food Escapade at Enotica Galileo (redeux)

That moment when you're hungry and you're too lazy to cook - I went to Galileo Enotica. After all, I was kind of craving for truffle pasta!

I've been here several times but I've never tried their truffle pasta before. Weird.

with my red wine.
I kid, it's just regular Coke.


that pasta with prosciutto etc etc.

mushroom truffle pasta

I've forgotten the exact prices of the food we ordered but each dish is more or less PhP500. The portion is small and is only good for one person [except for the pizza]. But if you're craving for Italian food and want some quiet time, you can definitely have that at Galileo!

MyChoice Pure Herbal Soap*

You know the feeling of not wanting to use something because it looks too pretty or cute? That's exactly my thought every time I see this soap from MyChoice. I swear, I've been holding off using this for almost a year now because it's too pretty to be used. It's also the first time I've seen a soap like this.

But hey, a soap is a soap. I still gotta use it! While spring cleaning in the flat, I saw this again and decided to use it in January.

Purple Tags Flawless Finish Brush*

Remember back in 2013 when MAC released oval brushes? It was totally different from the usual makeup brushes that we have seen. So, it's not a surprise that other brands followed suit when oval brushes became a hit in the makeup industry.

I've been waiting for other brands to release their take on the oval brushes because I wasn't sure I wanted to spend USD42 on another makeup brush.

As always, Purple Tags was kind enough to send me their Flawless Finish Brush for me to try and share with my readers [thoughts about this awesome brush]!

Food Escapade at Blackbird

Leave a Comment
I've always wanted to try Blackbird because it's included in the Top 100 restaurants in Manila for 2014. Was finally able to reserve a table a few months back despite the busy schedule!

soft shell crab, PhP590

truffle risotto, PhP590


If you see the menu, you'll think that the food is reasonably priced for a very fancy restaurant. When our food was served, the portions were very small it's like an appetiser. The server said their portions are good for two. Well, I don't think so. Despite the very small portions though, the food was very tasty and delicious!

The place is very quiet so it's good to have a date here. This place is great for a first date! I'd go back here though to try more of what's in their menu and not for a date night! Oh, they're very strict on reservations so you better not be late.

Blackbird at Nielsen is located at Ayala Triangle, Ayala Avenue, Makati City.

Last December, I received a loot full of Korean beauty products! Remember this post on Instagram?


I got them before Christmas but started using them after the holidays because I was still testing out different products. I tell you though, it was quite difficult to resist because I wanted to swatch the lip crayons the moment I saw them!

Lucido-L Hair Make Supplement Treatment Oil*

Our hair is our crowning glory. When my hair looks good, I feel like I can conquer the world. A bit exaggeration but you get my point. But but but I have damage hair and the struggle is real, I tell you, when it coms to my hair.

You see, I can never be contented with my hair. I like it long. I like it short. There are days when I want to go blonde. There are days when I want to go back to black. As we speak, I want to have gray or platinum hair! On top of that, I like my hair straight but then I also like it wavy (when I have long hair).

Now that my hair is short, it got wavier than it should be. For some odd reason, my hair gets wavy when it's shorter. Boo. I looked for various hair supplements that can make my hair straight cos I've been stalling to get it rebonded.

While I was doing some spring cleaning a few months ago, I saw the bottle of Lucido-L. And just my luck, it's a treatment oil if you want to sport straight hair.
