♥ EVENT: Mary Kay's 17th Anniversary

Hello everyone!

Mary Kay, one of the biggest cosmetics companies in the world, hosted an intimate gathering last May 12 in Davao City to celebrate its 17th anniversary in the Philippines, and at the same time, the birthday of its visionary founder and namesake, Mary Kay Ash.

The event took place at Sea Green Café and the place was accentuated with chic floral décor and clean elements, perfect for an intimate yet fun celebration. Members of the media and blog community enjoyed a sumptuous and healthy lunch as they discovered more about the Mary Kay brand. Guests also took part in an interactive skin care and make up class, where they picked up beauty tips and tricks and put together their own beauty palettes using Mary Kay products and I am one of the lucky few. Yay! :D

When Mary Kay Ash founded the brand over 5 decades ago, her cause was clear and simple: to enrich and elevate the lives of women all over the world.

♥ EXPERIENCE: My Skin Origins Facial and Skincare Center

Hello everyone!

Did you know that having regular facial will benefit your skin? I know some of you might think that facial can harm your skin and might worsen your acne because of the pricking. I can't blame you because I, myself, thought of that before. I have acne-prone skin so I am hesitant to try facial services. But the time came when I had severe acne, and I mean cystic acne, I just had to try and experience facial service because I wanted to pop the pimples and I don't want to do that on my own so I had to go and have a professional do it for me. So this is not my first time to experience a facial service and I have been looking for a trusted facial center where I am comfortable to go to because I'm planning to have regular facials as much as possible. Is My Skin Origins Facial and Skincare Center the one? ;)

My Skin Origins Mission: 
We at My Skin Essential, Phils. will dedicate ourselves in providing every woman, man, and their families an opportunity to have healthy, radiant and glowing skin naturally.

♥ REVIEW: EB Advance Eyeshadow 5 Shades

Hello everyone!

When I was just practicing doing my own makeup and starting to build up my makeup collection, I always buy eye shadows in palette because it already has so many colors to play with and that time I was really into eye makeup. I remembered I bought a 360-color eye shadow palette and I only used it at home because it was too bulky to bring with. But when I got to work, I got no time to play with my eye shadow palettes anymore and I realized that I only need the basic colors, like the neutral colors, for everyday use. So, I was looking for an affordable eye shadow and I always see this EB Advance Eyeshadow 5 Shades on the internet being raved.

Price: P120
Availability: Any Ever Bilena counters

♥ TIP: Use one facial mask twice

Hello everyone!

This might not be new to you but for me it is. I don't usually use facial masks because I feel like I'm wasting the excess essence inside the pack. But I really wanted to use it religiously because of the benefits it will give for my skin. But then again, I get discourage every time I think about the reason why I don't use facial masks. So, I thought, if only I could find a dry face mask then I can maximize the essence in the pack. Then, one day, my prayers (well, not really, hehe) were answered. I, finally, found a dry mask so I started this experiment of mine and it went pretty well. So, here I am sharing it with you (I'm referring to people who still don't know this tip/hack). :D

If you are interested then please keep on reading. :)

Hello everyone!

We all know the struggle of wanting to buy a specific product, especially high-end ones, but can't find a store or a shop selling it. That's the disadvantage of living in the Philippines. But some people have their own way. They take advantage of their relatives outside the Philippines to buy the product for them. Good for the people who have relatives outside the Philippines. But for those who don't have, don't fret because there is now a solution to our problem. :)

Buying high-end beauty products is not a problem anymore because there is now a website that caters to our luxurious needs. SephoraPH now has a website that delivers within the Philippines. All the latest beauty products from well-known high-end brands are available on that website. How cool is that?? :D

Speaking of high-end brands, I want to share with you my beauty finds from the brand Guerlain. Besides, that's the point of this blog post hence the title. Hehehe! 

"Guerlain is a French perfume and cosmetics and skincare house, among the oldest in the world. It has a large customer following, and has traditionally been held in high esteem in the perfume industry." -- source: Wikipedia

But then I noticed that there is this very common lip product nowadays that I haven't reviewed yet. Well I've tried it way way way back when I was in high school. I am talking about lip tints.

♥ REVIEW: Paddle/Oval Brushes

Hello everyone!

Back when I was just learning to do makeup, I bought all kinds of brushes. I bought brush sets and individual brushes that are not in sets. Every time there is a new type of brush released in the market, I always buy one for myself to try. But that was before, I am a changed woman now. Hahaha! I mean, I realized that I already have a lot of brushes and that I need to start saving my money. Besides, I don't wear foundation on a daily basis so I don't use my brushes that often unlike before when I was just practicing doing makeup.

Last year, there was this new brush that was trending on the internet and that some beauty gurus/enthusiasts rave about. It is called the Paddle Brush or Oval Brush because it is shaped in oval. It doesn't look like the usual brush but it looks like a toothbrush. It's been trending since last year so I know you know what I'm talking about. Hahaha! As usual, I got curious and got tempted to buy but I really controlled myself and, I tell you, it was difficult. :( 

One day, I joined a giveaway with the said brush as the prize because I am fond of joining giveaways and luckily I won! It was the perfect timing because it was my birthday when I won it. So, I have already experienced how the brushes perform and so here is my review. :)
