The Best Lip Cheek Tint Ever: KJM Lip and Cheek Tint

This product is insanely the “best seller” product on my shop. I have sold thousands and thousands of tubes already! I restock around 2,000 pcs of KJM in just two to three weeks! 
But it’s not surprising as I personally use this product. And I dare to say that it is the “best” lip cheek tint product I have ever used so far (and I’m a sucker for lip tint products ha!)
Even Sofia Andres, Alexa Ilacad and Elise featured this on their top favorite products. In one of Sofia’s ig post, she said that KJM Lip Cheek tint is her favorite lip cheek product EVER! I couldn’t agree more. 

To know more about the product, keep on reading!


KJM says,
KJM Lip Cheek Tints are meant to enhance natural tones, this explains why stains may look different from one person to another. Results depend on how much stain you put in too. The colors will develop overtime, making the stain look more natural and beautiful


Unlike the typical lip cheek tint, this one came with a tube packaging with a roll-on type applicator. KJM is a water-based lip cheek tint --which is why i think roll-on is the "perfect" applicator. Brush applicator or doe foot applicator are nice, but it will  work best for gel-type lip cheek tint.
Recently they changed the bottle to plastic instead of the typical glass tube. I honestly like the glass-one better as it looks nicer and more sleek. However, the plastic one is quite lighter hence cheaper when you ship it in bulk orders.


KJM was quite liquidy than the typical lip cheek tint I’ve tried in the past. The idea of roll-on applicator is that you could apply the product directly on your lip and cheeks, but I still prefer applying the product with my fingers so that I get to control the amount of product on my cheeks and it blends more easily that way. 
It gives my cheeks the most natural flushed! I particularly love Fused or Girltalk on my cheeks as these shades look very, very natural. If you have dry cheeks like I do, I highly, highly recommend you to apply primer underneath. Smoothening primer ha, not a matte primer as it will make it even more difficult to apply. I can recommend Maybelline Baby Skin primer, it works so well with this one!
In terms of longevity, this stays on throughout the day on my cheeks. I don’t retouch at all. However, you need to be very careful in applying it as it is very pigmented.
For my lips, I’m so inlove with Bittersweet magenta!!! It is very beautiful on lips, and it goes with any (yes, ANY!) makeup look! I seriously love this shade.


KJM Cosmetics Lip and Cheek Stain is available in 10 shades, from Sweet Pink to Bloody Reds to Vampy shade.  

The best seller shade. It has cool, red-brown shade, I’m not sure why they called it Magenta because it doesn’t look magenta on me. But it’s a very pretty shade, I cannot stop wearing this shade. This looks stunningly natural on cheeks too! If you don’t like wearing “too pink” or “too red” shade, you might want to check this out.
For all red-lip lovers, this is another best seller shade you might want to check out. It’s a true-bloody red. I am honestly not a fan of red shades, but my sister loves this so much. It gives her a nice, flushed of red on her cheeks. 
Orange is the new red for summer! Though, the shade is wearable all year round in my opinion. 
Summer kiss is an orange-red shade while Tango has more coral-tone to it. Both are pretty shades. Tango is a good alternative in case Summer kiss goes out of stock, or vice versa.
The name says it all. It’s a dark -- it’s probably the shade that a witch will wear on a daily basis (if they exist!). 
Please allow me to be biased with pinks. But this is one of my fave shades because I absolutely love pink cheeks. It looks fresh and youthful! I really recommend this shade for all pink lovers
Is similar to Pink Puff, but pinkier. Another pretty shade to have, I love it as well. It’s a little bit darker than pink puff.  
A lovely violet-pink shade. It’s another fave shade of mine. At first I thought that violet would look scary and unnatural on cheeks but apparently, this shade gives one of the most natural effects on my cheeks!  
This one is the most purple in the collection. It’s quite an adventurous shade, but not that scary to wear. 
This has got to be my most worn shade among all the shades on my cheeks. It has the right balance of “pink” and “violet” that looks really beautiful on my cheeks. 

Watch the clip below for complete swatches 


I have nothing but good words for this product! This lip tint is made from organic ingredients – and also edible! Though it has a weird sweet and bitter taste.
The packaging is quite unique, it has roll-on applicator instead of the typical foot-doe applicator. 
You can wear it over or underneath your powder. However, I noticed that this product is easier to blend on an un-powdered skin. 
I highly recommend using smoothening primer, like Maybelline Baby Skin, if you have dry skin and you intend to use this on your cheeks. I swear by it!

Hi guys!! I’m finally back.. and I’m back to review one of the most raved foundations today. The ever famous “Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation”. 

This foundation was highly recommended by Anna Cay in her videos. I’m a huge fan of Anna because of her thorough review on make up products. I also like how honest she is in giving reviews on a particular product – sponsored or not. Lastly, majority of the products she recommended (of course, only those I can afford) in her videos worked really well on me.

If you want to know more about this product, keep on reading!


MJ says,
Get 24-hour wear and flawless coverage in an instant with this ultralightweight foundation concentrate. Featuring a revolutionary oil-free formula that contains twice as much pigment as a leading full-coverage foundation, it’s infused with innovative ingredients that completely cover with spot-on perfection. It’s enriched with Marc Jacobs’ patented golden pigments that are wrapped in lecithin—an ingredient that’s biochemically similar to skin—for immediate, effortless blending and a smooth, soft matte finish. This foundation has a one-of-a-kind dot applicator that allows for custom coverage. Just shake, dot, and blend for perfectly-matte coverage.


The packaging is truly a beauty! It’s simple yet luxurious. This foundation came into this frosted glass bottle with metallic silver-ring, and black cap. 
To open the product, you need to remove the black cap and then twist the metallic cap to reveal its unique applicator. 
While the packaging looked luxurious, there are two things I didn’t like about the packaging. 

First, I don’t like that I need to remove the black cap and applicator separately. I still like the conventional packaging wherein the applicator is already attached with the cap.
Second, while I’m already getting used with the dot-applicator, I still hate how messy it can get when dispensing off the product especially around the rim. It’s a shame to waste such precious product.
But overall, the packaging looks really good. The glass is thick, heavy and very durable. It fell out of my hands (yes, I am that reckless!) several times but it didn’t break.


The shade I got is in 12 Ivory --- quite light for my NC25 skin. However, this foundation oxidizes like crazy so you really need to get few shades lighter.


Twice as much pigment as a leading full-coverage foundation --- true to its claim, this foundation has got to be the most full-coverage foundation I have ever tried in my life so far! BUT despite the full coverage, this foundation feels incredibly light on skin. Seriously! It’s the lightest with the highest coverage foundation ever
I only use 3-4 dots to cover my entire face. Then double it up (as concealer) to areas where I need more coverage.
I like applying this foundation with damp beauty blender (for light, more natural effect ) or a not-so-dense stippling brush (if you want a little bit more coverage). The effect it gives my skin is flawless. However, due to its high coverage, this foundation can look “fake” on skin and is more evident after setting it with a powder. To avoid that matte-fake-mask-like skin, the key is to use a setting spray, mist or water at the last step of your makeup routine. I also avoid using flat top brush or kabuki as it tends to make the foundation really cakey on skin. 
Also you need to note that since this foundation is really matte, this can emphasize dryness and exaggerates pores on skin. I always make sure to use primer underneath. Maybelline baby skin or Benefit poreless primer worked really well on me.

Despite the fact that this foundation provides amazing coverage while still feels extremely light on skin, I still have love-hate relationship with this foundation. 

This foundation looks heavenly on the first few hours then starts to look very patchy on my skin especially on my forehead, chin and nose. It clings on every lines and pores of my face. I tried using it with several techniques but I always end up with a cakey face.

So what I do, I blend those cakeyness away with my fingers, and then I blot it off with Gatsby powder paper. 

It was quite a hassle that I need to check myself at the middle of the day to see if my foundation has turned cakey or not. While the problem can be fixed easily, I still wish that the formulation will be better since the price was really steep.

Last week, I had my diamond peel treatment at Skin House. Surprisingly, this foundation doesn’t cake that much anywhere. I guess, you really need to start with a good skin to make it work for you. Otherwise, you’ll end up with cake and fake-looking skin. 


This foundation is really good if you already have a good, well-moisturized skin. The coverage is insanely good and feels amazingly light as if you are not wearing foundation at all. However, if you’ll ask me if I will repurchase it again, I don’t think I’ll repurchase it again. Yes, it is probably the best foundation in terms of coverage but there are far more important things than coverage – at least for me! 
The price is steep, at Php 3,000 I expect so much more for a foundation. The cakiness can be unforgiving– too much hassle for a very expensive foundation.  But again, this is just me! I heard so much good things about this foundation from my friends online, and my sister is so obsessed with. If you have extra money and don’t mind spending that much on a foundation, you might want to check this out.

Don’t worry, in case it didn’t work out on you, you can sell it as preloved. This foundation sells so easily online. Goodluck, ladies! 

Have you tried this foundation? What is your fave foundation for oily skin?

Manage your life with Taiwan Excellence Products

Nowadays, a lot of people find themselves searching for work-life balance. With demands from work, work-life balance appears to be an impossible feat, especially in today’s fast-paced lifestyle. 

Stop stressing and start achieving work-life balance with Taiwan’s best brands that bear the Taiwan Excellence seal, assuring customers of the products’ superior quality. A perfect slice of work-life balance can be possible with the following tips and Taiwan Excellence’s sports and leisure products.

Develop daily positive habits
Commuting consumes a large chunk of one’s daily life. Why not schedule a “bike day” going to work? Take the versatile Link B7 from Tern for a fun and different urban transport. It would cut commute time while simultaneously adding minutes to one’s daily workout. The Link B7 can make your travel more convenient as it folds compactly in 10 seconds and has adjustable handlepost to find the right height ride.

It's difficult to navigate the high demands of one’s career. Work can get so challenging and may lead to anxiety and stress. Avoid this by finding an alone time to regroup one’s thoughts and reenergize for the next tasks. Reflecting, however, is not limited to finding a quiet room. Try clearing one’s mind using Johnson’s Adventure 5 treadmill. A good reflection over a productive work-out session can be a rewarding treat after a long day.  

Try new leisure activities
It’s no fun being stuck in a routine of work-sleep-eat-work. Start simple and try to look for new leisure activities. People who prefer more outdoor activities can commit to swimming classes during the weekends. Before diving into this new activity, make sure to get the must-have items, such as sunblock, comfortable swimwear, and goggles like the waterproof Vision & Vision Jr. goggles that have quality optic lens and multi-colored frame. 

Get Moving
Being static makes the body accumulate pent up energy. Let that energy loose by working out. With many available work-out equipment in the market, one can easily perform a do-it-yourself work-out at home. For instance, Ucheer offers compact and portable kinetic energy dumbbell that combines muscle training and body kinetic energy. 
Those interested in weightlifting can check Victory’s 5-kilogram bumper plate, which combines durable rubber and plastic in its design for a quality and convenient work-out. Products like these can help maintaining personal health, which should be the priority to the modern generation. 

Take responsibility for your own decisions

3D Eyebrow Stranding at Strokes by Momoi Supe

Among all the makeup routine, eyebrows, for me, is the most important. I really take time in doing my brows… so much time that I need to wake up super early so i’ll have more time to fill it up. For me and probably half of my readers, kilay is life! I just don’t mind spending money for it. And I really think that doing your kilay makes a lot of difference in your  overall look.

I never skip doing my brows because I feel naked whenever I don’t have any brow makeup since mine is naturally thin. I honestly get jelly with those who are blessed with thick brows! I think having thick brows is amazing, you just have to groom it well. 

Anyways, almost 3 years ago, I attended an event sponsored by Browhaus. I witnessed their “brow resurrection” service. Brow resurrection is semi-permanent treatment for brows that boasts a more detailed and natural stroke, finer than normal brow embroidery techniques. In some brow salon, they call it “Brow stranding” or “3D Tattoo” or "Eyebrow embroidery". To know more about eyebrow embroidery, kindly visit my previous post here.

Ever since I witnessed the brow stranding, I’ve always wanted to try it out. However, the price is quite steep at Php 38,000 right? 

Fortunately, a good online friend of mine, Diane Mendoza recommended me to try Strokes by Momoi Supe

According to them, the procedure can lasts up to 2 years and costs Php 10,000 (Senior ES, Keighty Wong) and Php 14,000 (Master ES, Momoi Supe). That includes a retouch after 6 weeks. The regular price for retouch is Php 5,000.

I availed the Master ES Service. 

I was scheduled for the procedure last May 27. The place is near to Quezon Avenue station. Since i don’t know how to drive, I always take grabcar. You can easily google its location thru that application. 

I arrived on time. The place is quite small, and jampacked with clients. Although jam packed with clients, they won’t make you wait for long without doing anything. While Moi’s doing the other client’s brows, his assistant shaped my brows. Thereafter, he applied a certain cream on my brows. I believe the procedure is very similar to that of the browhaus’ process. So I won’t no longer discuss it step by step here.

Anyways, the whole procedure was more or less one and half hour. It did hurt a little, but the pain was tolerable.

After the procedure, my brows look thick and weird. The skin around my brows turned really red.   The attendant gave me a special oil. He then told me to apply the oil whenever it feels itchy or once it starts scabbing. Also, he instructed me not to wet it for 24 hours. 

I was so hungry after the treatment, so I went to the nearest restaurant to have my dinner. Honestly, though I felt my brows was too thick, nobody really cared. I finished my dinner without people staring at my brows! Siguro, hindi lang  ako sanay with that kind of brows.

NIGHT 1: As instructed, I didn’t wet my brows. I only used makeup remover to remove my makeup and wet wipes to clean my face. 
I also wash the lower face of my face using soap and water, avoiding my brow areas.
DAY 1: I woke up looking like Betty La Fea. My brows looked thicker and darker. I didn’t go out of the house the entire day. It was also a challenge to take a bath and wash face without wetting the eyebrow area. But i need to wait for 24 hours!!!

DAY 2: My sister, who had her brows done in Singapore, told me that she didn’t wet her brows for a week as instructed to her during the procedure. Wow, 24 hours was already a challenge for me. what more kung 1 week, right? So I messaged Momoi’s page to ask for clarification. But I didn’t received a reply. I couldn’t wait any longer to I just washed my face since it’s been past 24 hours already naman. 
After, doon lang ako nakareceive ng reply that I should wait for 3 days daw. But it’s already too late. I already wet my brows. huhu. The instruction in a paper they gave me also indicate that I can wet it after 24 hours. So, i just let it be. Since i can no longer unwet it. I decided to just apply the ointment/oil they gave me. 
They told me to apply the oil 3-4 times a day to help my skin heal from scabbing and helps retain the pigment on my skin. I was not allowed to go on swimming, sweat in gym, apply eyebrow makeup in brow area, and apply anti-ageing creams for 10 days. 

DAY 3: My brows are still dark. It started scabbing, and  appread patchy already. 
DAY 4: Nothing much has changed. Still scabbing.
DAY 5: The scabbing was more obvious. My brows turned really patchy. And it felt more itchy. I applied oil more frequently, almost every now and then. 

After a week, I messaged Supe Moimoi’s page inquiring why my brows look patchy and some areas faded already. They told me that it’s normal. I asked if I can already schedule a retouch session since I don't like how it looked-like. 

They told me that I need to wait for 3 weeks. But the schedules were always full. The next available schedule was 1st week of August. I always make sure kasi to have the procedure done on weekend so washing my face will be less a hassle. 

Anyways, I had my retouch last August 6. I can still feel the pain of the procedure, but again, it was still tolerable. 

The result of the retouch was way, way better than the initial procedure.
I didn’t apply any eye makeup until the 3rd week. My brows looked perfectly beautiful and fuller on its first week. 
Then it started fading a little on 2nd week. Then, it faded more on its 3rd week. Hence, i already decided to start filling them up again with brow pencil. Excuse my no makeup look in the photo below, it's the time of the month again, hence my pimples.
The right brow is still intact and nothing much has changed since the procedure. But the left brow starts fading and appear uneven already. Although still better than how it looks like before the retouch procedure.

It’s been almost 3 months since my first procedure (3 weeks from my retouch) and honestly, i don’t think that mine will last even a year or half. Even after the retouch.

They said that the procedure will lasts 2 years, and I doubt it.

The right brows which has more hair is still perfectly fine. But the left brow has already faded.

According to the instruction and disclaimer they gave, the result varies differently on people. Diane’s brows are still amazing according to her, and even after few months, she hasn’t availed the free retouch yet. Mine has different story. In just three months, I already availed the retouch session, and still, the left brow has faded quickly. 

To sum it up, Strokes by Momoi Supe offers one of the most affordable eyebrow stranding services. Also, I really like that it is Moi himself who'll do your brows. He's very nice, and welcoming (the entire team was very accomodating). Service-wise, I have nothing but praises. 

However, it terms of result, I hope he'll understand that I'm quite disappointed. I paid Php 14,000, and the embroidery didn't even last half a month. But to be fair, I still need to try eyebrow embroidery service from other brow establishments. In fact, I’m thinking of having my brows retouch at Pretty looks or Keighty Wong after a month or two, for the sake of comparing the service. Baka naman kasi, the problem was really with my brows. Baka naman talaga na no matter what they do, my skin just doesn’t hold the pigment. I don’t know yet! 

Despite that, I don’t regret having eyebrow stranding and i'm still looking to forward having my retouch sessions with other brow establishments. Honestly, I had the best days before it started fading after three weeks of retouch session. My prep time was cut by 10-15 minutes because I no longer need to fill in my brows. I can go out of the house without makeup. And I still look perfectly presentable even if I have just woken up. 

Just remember: Make sure not to schedule any important event a week after the embroidery. Have a week to recover. 

For all kilay-is-life girls, let me know if you have tried any brow embroidery procedure and how it turned out. 

Until then, my loves!

Revlon Matte Balms

Revlon Matte Balm has been around since ages, but it was only early this year that I got the chance to try them out. Honestly, I was, at first, quite sceptical to try Revlon Matte Balm as I don’t have good experiences with the other Revlon lipsticks that I have tried in the past. 

But when I saw this on sale on Shopee, I decided to give it a try. Thankfully, I really loved it! To know more about my thoughts on the product, keep on reading!  


Revlon says,
Vibrant colors infused with a Triple Butter Complex give you a bold, beautiful lip. It’s a burst of matte color with a balm-like feel. Go bold and get moisturized in 10 craveable, collectible shades.


It came with a twist-up jumbo-sized crayon/pencil packaging. I’m not really sure who started this kind of packaging, but Clinique, wet n wild and other brands also came out with their own version of crayon lipsticks. 
It is retractable, hence, you need not to sharpen it. The color of the tube is the same as the shade of the lipstick itself. 


The formulation of this lipbalm is superb! It’s probably one of the best formulations for Matte lipsticks.
I only did one swipe in this swatch, but look how amazing the color payoff! It’s very rich and opaque.

These glide so soft and smoothly on my lips which is really surprising for a matte-formulation. I swear, it feels very comfy on my lips

I also love the slight pepperminty smell and feel on my lips. 


Despite the amazing formulation, I only picked two shades from the line: Sultry and Elusive. 

Elusive is a nice, subtle cool-toned pink. It’s definitely an everyday shade. 
The shade is quite similar to Happy Skin Shut up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie in Just Say Yes.

Sultry, on the other hand, is a deep brown-rosey/pink. 
It has that vintage feel, and I feel much matured whenever I have it on. They say it’s a dupe for Mac Twig, I haven’t tried that one yet.
Note: These lip balm are actually moisturizing on its own. Hence the name, “lip balm”.  The reason why my lip appeared dry on swatches is because I swatched other matte lipsticks prior to swatching these balms. 


I love Revlon Matte Lip Balms! I think they’re really worth the money. The formulation is very rich, pigmented, creamy, opaque, long lasting. I have nothing but good words for this product.

The only downside was the color selection. Although the formulation was amazing, only two shades really catched my attention. I wish they would come out with nicer colors, like a dusty rose shade.

  • Matte-finish, but feels very comfy on lips
  • Moisturizing on lips. You can use it on its own, even without balm underneath
  • Glides so soft and smoothly on lips
  • Has a nice minty-feel on lips
  • Very opaque

  • Limited shades
  • Quite pricey at Php 575 (but really worth it!)

Pink Sugar Cosmetics is a local brand that was launched last year. Although I was not invited in the launching, I had the chance to try them out when BDJ contacted me to do an open box review of their exclusive box of Pink Sugar Cosmetics. HERE for the unboxing post.

Pink Sugar Cosmetics, though a local brand, was apparently made in Taiwan. This brand reminds me so much of Happy Skin Cosmetics, with its very fun packaging and catchy names, but made more affordable! Pasok sa banga ang presyo but it doesn’t sacrifice the quality.  For me, it’s like the affordable version of Happy Skin Cosmetics.

Recently, Pink Sugar has launched 9 new lip colors for 2016 and 3 new shades for eyebrow gels! And here are my thoughts on the newly launched products!



PRICE: Php 349.00
CLAIMS: A semi-matte lipstick that delivers long lasting color.

I’m not aware that Pink Sugar has Creamy matte formulation for their lipsticks. The one I’ve tried before were the HD lipstick (Naked) and Creamy (First Kiss). The creamy-matte has got to be my favorite formulation among the three! 

It’s very true to its name; it provides matte finish but doesn’t feel dry on my lips. In fact, it’s kind of moisturizing on lips and feels very comfy. 

The newly launched shades are: Girl Next Door, Hot Mess, XOXO and Hot Bling.

Girl Next Door is a warm-nude, with a hint of taupe. It’s a very wearable shade, a perfect My Lips But Better shade

Hot Mess is mauvey shade. I'm so inlove with this shade, it looks stunningly beautiful especially if you like wearing smokey eyes! Though, I also use this on daily basis with well-groomed eyebrows, loads of mascara and thin eyeliner! 

XOXO is rose nude shade. If you want an everyday shade that doesn't look too nudey on lips, you might want to check this out.

The only not-nude shade that Pink Sugar has released. It’s a blue-based magenta shade, if you prefer bright lipstick, this might be the one for you.

Overall, I have no negative thing to say about Creamy Matte formulation. They’re amazing, these feel very comfy on my lips despite the matte finish.


I know I mentioned in my unboxing post that Pink Sugar's Lip and Cheek tint was my least fave among all the liquid lipstick I've tried. But after trying out the other shades from the brand, boy, I was so wrong! This Lip and Cheek tint is exceptional!!! 
Coral Bliss really sucks (the first Lip and Cheek I've tried), as it is very patchy on my lips. But in general, the formulation of Pink Sugar Lip and Cheek Tint is way beyond amazing. Queen bee in particular has a very good formulation. Honestly, it’s now my favorite liquid lipstick formulation. I like it better than La Splash which used to be my ultimate fave liquid lipstick.

Naughty nude is a warm peach, almost beige kind of nude. Nude is really popular nowadays. Thanks to Kylie. This shade looks weird on me, though!
Honey Bunny is a beige shade but has brown undertone. It’s more wearable than Naughty nude, and said to be similar to Dolce K. 

Queen Bee has got to be my fave shade! It’s a rosey with a hint of grey undertone. According to Beauty Mnl, it’s a mix of true brown k and posie k. It’s indeed a very beautiful shade.

For red fans out there, Code Red is a classic looking bright red. 

The name says it all, Vampy Vixen is a deep wine with brown undertone kind of red. It’s very vampy, and dark! It’s a bit difficult to apply evenly on my lips. 
If you want to achieve that dark, vampy lips, you might want to check this out.

Overall, I’m inlove with Lip and Cheek tint of Pink Sugar. Although, I have yet to try on my cheeks.

These lip and cheek tints are very pigmented, most of them glides smoothly and evenly, and not as drying as colourpop on my lips. These don’t sit on the wrinkled lines of my lips! It has mousse texture/consistency rather than liquid. Hence, easier to apply and work with!


There are three shades available for brow gel. Brunette, Taupe and Blonde. 
The texture is quite comparable to Etude house color my brows which is quite liquidy. For me, this eyebrow gel should be named “brow tint” than “brow gel” because it doesn’t really tame the hair that much. Though, it colors my brows really nicely. I particularly like using the blonde shade since I have a colored hair.

Light-to-medium hair

For black hair

Softer than Brunette

It’s a good brow tint as it lightens up my brows. It's easy and convenient to use, and the overall effect on my brows is very natural. The only downside is that it doesn't tame my unruly brows the way I want to. Although, to be fair, I'm very particular with my brow products since my brows is rather long in the arch (and grows so fast as well) so it kind of goes down. But if you have more "mabait" eyebrows, i don't think you will have a problem with this product! 

Also, the brush that it came with has very stiff bristles, I find it hard to work with. I use a different spoolie to apply this product on my brows. 

OVERALL, I'm really happy with the new releases of Pink Sugar Cosmetics. 

I highly, highly recommend Lip and Cheek Tint in Queen Bee and the nude shades of Creamy Matte lipsticks. They're the bomb! 

How about you, what are your favorite Pink Sugar Cosmetics products?
