Review: BLK Cosmetics All-Day Lip & Cheek Water Tint

4/16/2018


BLK Cosmetics is not an unfamiliar name to me. I have heard a lot about the brand but haven't really got the chance to try anything from them, until my cousin informed me that they will be releasing a Kbeauty collection. As a Kbeauty fan myself, I know that I have to try something from that collection so I can also write a first-hand review about it. Before finally checking out my cart from BeautyMNL, I watched Raiza Contawi's first impression and review first. Lo and behold, I was convinced to buy their All-Day Lip & Cheek Tint.

For this review, I will be talking about first about the brand, product and its claims, packaging, formula and smell before I proceed to discussing more regarding each shade that I bought.

South Korea Day 1: Arrival + Nami Island

4/06/2018


It was during my first year in high school when I started to immerse myself in the Korean pop culture scene, man, that was already ten years ago! Ever since then, I have longed to visit the land of Oppas  (lol) and I thought back then that it is a dream that is yet to come true. Lo and behold! My family started planning for a holiday trip to South Korea last January and I felt that all of my fan girl dreams are starting to come true. 

Please keep in mind that this is not a guide post and just an entry to share my experiences with you. I am no travel blogger, so please forgive me. Hahaha!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Summertime is fast approaching here in the Philippines! Of course, we would like to keep ourselves looking and feeling fresh all day. Since summer in the Philippines is most of the time scorching-hot, women always see to it to put their crowning glories up in a bun, or if they are feeling a little extra—they braid it.

Braid is a classic hairstyle that has evolved overtime. This means that the classic braiding has grown through women adding a few fresh takes to the said hairstyle. A couple of braiding techniques has emerged and is being utilized worldwide by celebrities, fashion icons, and also those who simply love to style themselves, and those who we call beach babes.
