The Face Shop Multi Sun Protection Cushion [Marvel Edition]

June 04, 2018
Hey, everyone! I know it's been a hot second since I last posted, but work and life kept getting in the way. I just never seemed to get a chance to actually sit down, take photos, and blog. But since I finally have spare time on my hands, I can get back to blogging again and hopefully this time I can maintain a regular posting schedule.

Continuing my love for all things nerdy, I decided to keep going with reviewing more of the products I got from The Face Shop's Marvel collection. Next up is the The Face Shop Multi Sun Protection Cushion [Marvel Edition]!

The Face Shop says... "The Multi Sun Protect Cushion improves the appearance of your natural skin tone without leaving a sticky sensation. 

  • Easy-to-use sunscreen helps filter and screen harmful UVA/UVB rays using hands-free application.
  • Improves the appearance of your natural skin tone.
  • Multi functional cushion with BB cream and UVA/UVB - ray filter.

The Face Shop 2 in 1 Curling Mascara in 'Black Widow'

February 02, 2018
If you've known me long enough, and as I've stated here before, I'm a big ol' geek. And like any proud geek, I love my superheroes, especially the Marvel-ous ones. See what I did there?

Uhh.. anyway, when I saw online that The Face Shop was releasing a Marvel collection, I promptly screamed, maybe cried a little, and desperately tried to find out if it would be released here too. I nearly died was super giddy when my contact at TFS reassured me it would be and they'd even be sending me a few things from the collection.

Of course, my greed was too great and aside from what they sent, I also purchased a bunch of other items because MARVEL, guys! First one up for review is the 2 in 1 Curling Mascara in Black Widow.

The Face Shop says... The innovative 2-in-1 brush provides 24-hour curl by defining each lash, even hard to reach lashes.

Achieve ultimate curl, even on hard to reach lashes.
Experience ultimate curl from root to tip, even in hard to reach lashes (3.5mm from the inner and outer corners of your eyes) and bottom lashes.

Vice Co. Blockbuster Phenomenal Holiday Kit

December 17, 2017
Let's face it. The holidays are here and Christmas is fast approaching, which also means there'll be Christmas parties to attend. I don't know about you but I tend to have a standard, glam Christmas look which includes sparkly eyes and a vibrant red lip.

I've gotten a little nonchalant with my current red lipsticks so I decided to hunt down a new one. Since Christmas parties tend to involve a lot of eating, I wanted a lipstick that didn't only look great but could survive all the festive food binging. When I saw the much hyped about Vice Cosmetics toting one of their many lipsticks as 'the perfect red matte liquid lipstick', I figured that was the one to try. It's the Vice Co. Blockbuster Phenomenal Holiday Kit (Php295).

Vice Co. says, "Ganda ('beauty') is in your hands right now. A vibrant pop of color on your lips that's light and lasts all day. It's smudge-proof and comes with a beautiful matte finish."

Can I just say that packaging is on point for this? I already heard a lot about Vice Co.'s lipsticks, both good and bad, but this box caught my eye from way across the store. Look at how shiny and pretty it is!

December 08, 2017
Annyeong! *makes the obligatory tiny heart with my thumb and forefinger* What are two things lots of Filipina women love? Whitening products and anything Korean. K-dramas, Korean food, Korean boy bands, you name it. And of course, getting that sought after Korean complexion - fair, glowing, and flawless.

Seoul White Korea steps in to give the best of both worlds by coming out with two, whitening skin care products for every Filipina looking to achieve that fair, chok-chok (dewy) look. It's their Double White Whitening Soap and Instant White Tone-Up Whitening Cream.

Swan Blueberries Blender

November 19, 2017
When it comes to (makeup) sponges, everyone has their own preference. Some exclusively buy from higher-end brands while others stick to ones with more budget-friendly prices. There are those who prefer firmer sponges, and those who like them ultra soft and plush. Whichever you prefer, as long as it works for you, then blend away!

Personally, I have two favorite sponges. The original Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. Both work perfectly for me, and my skin type, and they're the easiest ones to use. Of course, I'm still open to trying sponges from other brands, especially if they're more affordable which is why I recently picked up this Blueberries Blender (Php 99.75) sponge from Swan.

For the unaware, Swan is a local Philippine manufacturer that's been making cosmetic puffs and sponges since 1958. Your grandma or older, female relatives will most likely be familiar with them!

Aside from its classic designs, Swan has a total of four other 'fruit-themed' sponges and a standard egg-shaped sponge. The former come in different shapes and colors, but I chose the Blueberries variant because it appears to be the easiest to hold and control, and I liked that it had a flat bit like my Miracle Complexion sponge.

Catrice Cosmetics Nude Illusion Make Up

October 31, 2017
Thanks to my dry skin, I rarely opt for foundations that have a matte finish because I want my normally dull skin to look more glowing and healthy. However, when a foundation promises to still give skin a 'healthy glow' and is moisturizing, I don't hesitate to give it a chance.

Just a note, according to the company's product page, this foundation is no longer available meaning it was most likely phased out. It is currently still available here in the Philippines, however. Only time will tell if it'll be phased out of stores too eventually.

Catrice Cosmetics says... "The Nude Illusion Make-up scores points as a light foundation with optimal mattifying coverage. Thanks to soft, light-reflecting pigments, the foundation provides a soft focus effect for a healthy glow. The formula is fabulous: moisturizing, long-lasting and with protective UVA and UVB filters. The finish: flawless and natural."
