Spotted: Golden Rose Perfect Lasting Lipstick

Leave a Comment
While waiting for Lawrence at SM Megamall, I loitered around SM Beauty Store to check the usual. I was also looking for the Jordana counter as I've heard that it's already available there. You see, Jordana is still not available at SM Makati so I was a bit excited what the brand has in store of us. 

Upon checking Jordana's counter, I noticed that they are sharing the counter with another brand - Golden Rose. Okay, this brand is entirely new to me. I have never heard of this brand before and I don't think I've seen it around it the beauty blogging world as of late.

Grabbed one lipstick to try out the brand.

Moringa-O Herbal Shampoo and Conditioner with Argan Oil*

Leave a Comment
I've been sporting short hair since May. I actually like it. No, I love it. I love it so much that I plan to maintain short hair until the end of this year.

You know when they say that short hair has less maintenance? Well, that ain't true for me. I've never been this OC about my hair like I am now. I've been having hair treatments on a monthly basis. I had keratin treatment which I regret because it limited me to using organic shampoo which made my hair have that oily heavy feeling after two months of using it. So, I went back to using shampoo containing SLS.

When Sample Room sent me this set, I stalled in using this to finish my organic shampoo and conditioner. I tried it once though because it seemed like my hair missed SLS. I liked how it felt on my hair. I started using this full time last July.


Alright, what makes this unique is the fact that it has Argan Oil in it. I know a lot of people who are crazy obsessed with Argan Oil. I'm not one of them. Never joined the bandwagon. I wasn't expecting much with this hair care but one week after using this, I feel that my hair is healthier. It's not as straight as it was when I first had Keratin treatment. But I can live with the waves of my hair. Despite having Argan Oil, my hair never felt oily. It never got shinier but it doesn't look dry despite my dark ash blonde hair. I also noticed that it lessened my hair fall which is a total win for me!

Moringa-O Shampoo and Conditioner (200ml) retail for PhP180 each bottle and available at all leading department stores nationwide. You can try this for free by signing up at Sample Room. Just pay for shipping fee!

#FoundMyTrueMatch L'Oreal Paris Event

Leave a Comment
Yesterday, L'Oreal Paris launched their latest product - True Match Foundation. Okay, it's not really a new product. They have changed the packaging and improved the formula a bit.


There were 4 stations and in each station, there was someone that will demonstrate the product for you. I wasn't able to follow the stations accordingly because I got so overwhelmed with the new products!

My first stop was the Brow Station!


I'm not sure if L'Oreal had a brow duo before (or even abroad) but it's the first time I've seen this! Finally! They also release a retractable brow pencil with a shader and spoolie. Talk about 3-in-1 products!

The Brow Duo comes in two shades:
Light to Medium
Medium to Dark


And of course, a makeup primer to blur out imperfections! It has a sheer tint that adapts to your skin colour. That technology or chemistry or whatever it's called is amazing!



Then comes the concealer. The True Match concealer is not entirely a new product. However, this was included in the launch because the theme of the launch was to find your True Match (of your foundation) with that world's #1 foundation and how to achieve that flawless look!

I have the darkest shade of this crayon concealer that I use as a subtle contour. I decided to get W4-5 to hide my red spots or blemishes.

Atty Donna's hand for the swatches.


I went inside the Black Fleet to find my True Match. Prior to this event, I googled my shade and I was convinced that I'm W4 Natural Beige. However, Natural Beige is not available in this line (or in Asia, I forget). The warm tones recommended to me were in the G range. G for Golden. The shade that matched me perfectly is G2 Golden Porcelain!

Black Fleet parked outside Farmacy.

Beauty Budget Series: Wet & Wild Megalast Lipsticks

Leave a Comment
Since I started destashing, I've been drawn to drugstore makeup. I was able to found a big paper bag containing brand new makeup items both drugstore and high end. I decided to use the drugstore makeup first.

Wet n Wild has been around for a while. This brand is nothing new to me as I remember getting at least one Wet n Wild item in the grocery back in high school. It was one of those brands that I was allowed to buy. Well, there wasn't really any restriction then when it comes to makeup. But at 99 cents per tube, I don't understand why you wouldn't grab a tube or two.

My First Wet n Wild matte lipstick was Think Pink. It was also from this range. L bought it for me at SM. It's PhP299 per tube. I liked it a lot but I think I lost it during one of my trips.


I accumulated 6 more tubes that I ended up losing even before I reviewed it. Then last year, I randomly went inside SM Megatrade Hall and saw one kiosk in the corner selling makeup.

I'm really sorry for the lack of posts. It's that time of the year again! We're packing up again and moving places! We're like this every August.

I've been destashing makeup and other beauty products since July because I have no space to stock them. I saw my then most coveted foundation which is the MeMeMe Flawless Cream Foundation. The ones you see on my photos are my second bottles.
