Mestiza Skin Whitening Soap – a review

Summer is over and rainy days are here! I’m sure most of us became toasted and burnt from our beach escapades. The change of season also means changing or altering some beauty routines. Some change their moisturizers, body lotion, lip balms, etc. for a more moisturizing variety because this weather can make our skin dry. For me, it’s the start of making my skin a bit lighter (para lang bumalik sa dati yung kulay ko).  Hence, I bought Mestiza soap (Php 45). I used this even before but wasn’t able to make a review.

Celeteque Dermoscience Anti-wrinkle Power Serum Break Off Capsules – a review

I started using anti-aging products when I turned 30. Prevention is always better than cure, right? To start off, I started looking for an eye cream because I learned that wrinkles start to show at the eye area. I still haven’t found a good eye cream to use, fortunately, I was sent some Celeteque products last year and one of them is the Anti-wrinkle Power Serum Break-off capsules.

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Fuchsia – a review

I’m still not over the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter craze that’s why I often visit Revlon whenever I’m at the health and beauty section. I was shopping with my Nanay one time and I convinced her to get her own Revlon lip butters as well. After trying out some shades, Nanay can’t find the color she likes, good thing the SA recommended to try on the Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks instead. I want her to have a pink lipstick because she already has plenty of red lippies, she finally zeroed in on Fuchsia…

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sweet Tart – a review

I finally gave in to the hype among beauty bloggers, I bought my own tube of Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter. After all, the words “lip butter” is perfect for my extremely dry lips hence I gravitate towards lip balms more. A tube of Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter costs Php 525 at SM Department Store. Be prepared swatching because there are lots of colors to choose from, from peach, pink and red hues…

I don’t have a pink lipstick yet, and I’m perennially looking for my lips-but-better-shade of lipstick, so I picked up Sweet Tart among the bunch.

I’m not crazy about lipsticks and I can live with just one lipstick for a year, heck, I often find out that lipsticks in my kikay kit are expired already.
