A girl can never have too many lipsticks. I couldn’t agree more. 

However, even though I love trying out new lippies every time, I still have that one lipstick that I could always rely on for everyday. For me, this lip product right here is my mostly used lip product for this year. This is one of the sponsored products sent by Luxola about 7 months ago when they introduced me to their site and since then, it has always been on my kikay kit. I really can’t go out without this on my bag.

To know more about this product and why I love it, keep reading!


Wet n Wild says,
This is the perfect stick for your pout! Now you can liven up your lips with one stick for a kissable pout in no time. To keep you pucker-perfect, these balm stains glide on smoothly while conditioning your lips. Enriched with acai and palm oil, this amazing formula forms a protective shield on the lips to prevent feathering. 


  • Smooth, conditioning formula enriched with acai palm oil
  • Forms a protective shield on the lips to prevent feathering
  • Winner of the All You Beauty Award!
  • Leaves your pucker moisturized with a unique cooling tingle!
  • Provides continuous moisture for softer lips


Unlike wet n wild megalast lip color, the packaging of this lip balm is quite decent. So far, I have this for more than 7 months now, and the labels are still intact. 

Just like the old packaging of the megalast lip color, the name of shade is not written at the bottom of the lipbalm. Instead, it is written at the plastic seal thingy that you need to remove if you unseal the product. 


The formulation is like a lipbalm, but the color is more opaque. One swipe is enough to give my lips a nice youthful look. 
If you have been a long time reader of my blog, you’ll know that I always complain about my chap-dry lips. This is why I find this lip stain a perfect product for me. It doesn’t just add color on my lips, it also moisturizes my dry lips.

Rico Mauve is a nice, everyday shade. On first swatch, it’s like a toned-down pink on my lips. 
Then, as it dries, it comes off more pinky-red. 
This lipbalm is really moisturizing on my lips. Plus, I really enjoy the cooling sensation it gives. 

When it comes to longevity, this product is long-lasting. It does last after drinking or eating. 
Another reason why I love it is because it’s quick and very convenient to use. Don’t you just hate it when you have to let your lipbalm set before applying lipstick on top? With this one, it’s like I already applied lipbalm and lip color in just one swipe. Also, it’s a fool-proof lip product. I can apply it perfectly on my lips without mirror.


Overall, I'm really happy with this! I will repurchase if ever I run out of this. I really love how convenient it is to use. 

If ever I'll pick one out of all the lip products I have, this will definitely be my top pick.

I started buying tester perfumes back in my college years. I usually buy at Greenhills, because they’re cheaper! Back then, I don’t know much about tester perfumes (what are they? Where do they really came from). The only thing I knew was these were smuggled testers from the brand of this perfume. It’s so much easy to believe in that because they smell like the real thing in malls. 

I don’t buy original perfumes since they cost an arm and a leg. But I do have few originals from my Aunt in US. They usually give us pasalubong whenever they visit us here in Philippines. And some were from my sisters.

Before I started my online store, I tried researching about tester perfumes. I messaged several sellers asking what kind of tester perfumes they are selling, how they differ from each other and just some random chats with them – showing that I’m interested in reselling their products. I tried one testers to another until I found the distributor that has the best quality. It took me a lot of “trial and error” but it’s worth it.

In few months that I’ve been selling, I discovered “new” things about these so called “tester perfumes” and I hope this will enlighten you before deciding whether to purchase tester perfume or not to. 

Not most sellers will reveal this, but I believe that buyers have the right to know. Deceiving people are not my thing, I like to earn – yes, this is business, but I want them to know what they are really buying. 


Let’s start with some definitions. 

ORIGINAL Testers. Is not synonymous to “Authentic testers” for some sellers. For some reason, most sellers claim that “Dubai testers” or some “US Testers” are original testers. But they really aren’t. 

When you say Original testers – it should be authentic. When you say authentic testers, it should come from the brand itself. For instance, Versace testers. Versace should be the one producing those testers for their own purpose. BUT these companies DO NOT SELL these tester perfumes, and they are manufacturing these at a very limited quantities.
Surprisingly, you can see sellers selling these tester perfumes at crazy quantities, almost unlimited! Why? Because we usually get these from one manufacturer. All tester perfumes ARE FROM one manufacturer, which explains why we have unlimited stocks and why most of us are selling different kinds at almost same prices.

US Testers. There’s no such thing as US testers. One time, I purchased a tester perfume from a seller who claimed that she’s selling US Testers. I was so disappointed because she sent me a low quality tester perfumes. There are different qualities of tester perfumes, and for a seller to claim that she’s selling “US testers” even though I know for the fact that there is no such thing, I still expect that at least, somehow, she’ll sent me the highest quality of Dubai testers. 

I was so disappointed because in the picture she posted, the Eclat has “lilac” liquid, but the one I received has “blue” liquid – which is one thing to look into when looking for high quality tester perfume.

I told her that I know that what she’s selling is not US testers, since there’s no such thing as US testers. But she should have at least sent the right product she posted-- an Eclat with lilac liquid, and not the blue kind.

She even said to me, “Alam mo palang walang US testers. Seller ka din, kaya dapat alam mo kung pano imarket ang benta mo.” 

Anyway, she said sorry on the latter part of our conversation since she said that she didn’t know that the blue and lilac have different qualities. If she had known that, she would have sent me the right item. 

I forgave her because when I started this online store, I, too, didn’t know the difference of a good quality testers and low quality testers. But what frustrates me is the fact that she deceives her buyers of having US testers, even she’s fully aware that there is no such thing. 

DUBAI testers. Dubai testers have different kind of qualities. There are good quality tester perfumes, which are comparable to originals. Though, there are also not good tester perfumes. These are called DUBAI testers since they're imported to Dubai.

It’s really hard to see the difference, unless you try it yourself. This is where “Trial and error” comes. This is my advice to those who want to resell tester perfumes. Buy two pcs of same perfume from two different distributors and compare them. I highly recommend that you buy two of the same kind for an apple to apple comparison. That’s the best way to find which has a better quality. For instance, compare the blueish éclat to lilac éclat and you’ll see what I’m talking about. 

If you, however, purchase different kinds of scents, you wouldn’t really able to compare it fully. For example, you purchased D&G light blue and D&G l’imperatrice. D&G light blue will really last longer even if you have the highest quality D&G L’imperatrice. Even the original D&G L’imperatrice isn’t long lasting, you can read reviews through

SINGAPORE testers. The lowest and cheapest tester perfumes you could get. It doesn’t smell anything like the original. I wouldn’t really recommend you to purchase this, unless, you just want to try it. 

In this post, I will show you how to find a good quality tester perfumes for Eclat and D&G Light Blue.
My intention for this post is to let people know what they are really purchasing. I sell my tester perfumes for only Php 900, if you will order through Facebook. 

But we have promos sponsored by Shopee Philippines where you can purchase our tester perfumes from Php 760, which already includes shipping fee! This promo is until December 31 only.

So, imagine, you’ll only pay about 1/4 the price of the original perfume. But do not expect that you’ll get the “real” thing for that price. You know what they say, “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.” There’s always a catch. If someone sells a perfume for almost 1/4 the price and claims it to be authentic, it’s okay to doubt. 

To be sure that you are only getting original perfumes, I recommend getting the one in original pack (not the tester pack) and buy at your trusted stores like malls.

I personally don’t mind using this kind of tester perfumes since these are very affordable and most of these are really long lasting. I’ve tried and tested my products, I use them personally. 

I wanted to earn (who doesn't?), but not to the extent of deceiving my buyers. I highly value honesty.

I have this before and it's okay. It's a good cleanser to use, but since I'm too lazy to remove my makeup prior to washing off my face, this didn't work for me! I want facial cleanser that can remove makeup like my Kojie San. 


The total worth of items? 
I received more than Php 3,000 worth of products, which is twice the amount I paid for. All items are in full sizes, which is another plus point! 

No vouchers, yay! I honestly don't like vouchers especially those that require me to buy something to get something off. LOL.

Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Laguna Beach

It’s been a while since I last sat down and just write something random from my makeup kit. Lately , I have been focusing on my newly opened online store. Since it’s pretty new, I feel like it needs more attention. You know, just like a new baby that requires to be taken care of.

But of course, there are days when I feel like I want my old life back. Just sitting around, talking about my fave stuff and whatnots. Afterall, blogging is where I started.

Anyway, today’s review was a product I recently purchased but I have been using non-stop these past few days.


OFRA LONG LASTING Liquid lipstick. It’s been around since God knows when. But I didn’t really want to purchase it because it’s quite expensive. This liquid lipstick costs around Php 950! Mac, is that you?

What made me change my mind?
Kathleenlights and Glamourbox subscription box. When Kathleenlights talked about this product (and she seriously raved about it!) on her youtube channel, I just can’t stop thinking about it! 

You can watch her video here:

I went to Glamourbox website. I found out that the shade I want, Laguna beach, can also be purchased through their previous subscription box. It’s really mura ha! Imagine, you get full size products from Ellana and Belo, plus sample sizes of Beauty Republic BB Creams and full size of Ofra in Laguna beach for only Php 580. I bought 2 boxes for me and my sister.
Read more to know my thoughts on this product


OFRA says,

One step full lip color that does not feather. These vibrant colors will give you a vivacious look.They are creamy and soft in texture, moisturizing the lips and creating a long lasting lipstick effect. All shades contain antioxidants and Vitamin E while the formula provides a lightweight layer of lasting color to make you feel fresh all day. Color will last in a perfect condition up to five hours without eating or drinking.


The box is really sleek! “Yayamanin” talaga. For a php 950 price, the packaging has to be nice talaga!
However, to my disappointment, the liquid lipstick itself has cheap packaging. Even the print on it, I only got this for less than a month but I can barely see the name of it na.

I don’t care about the “expensive-looking” box since at the end of the day; I will surely throw it away. I just wish they could atleast invested on a better looking liquid lipstick tube.


This shade is so lovely! Laguna Beach is a nude-pink that complement my skintone. 
I really like pairing it with a pink blush and a good dose of mascara.


The formula is surprisingly good. The formulation was rather mousse-y than liquidy. The shade is opaque, really true to color.  

It goes easily and evenly on my lips. Much easier to work with than the popular nyx soft lip cream.
It dries into a true-matte formulation. I keep my lips well-moisturized before applying this because it has the tendency to make my lips appear chappy. As long as you don’t have crazily chapped lips, you will love this!

However, this liquid lipstick didn’t live up to its name, Long lasting! It isn’t long lasting at all. Or atleast, this shade will not even last a meal. Perhaps, just a few glasses of water.


Admittedly, I was a little disappointed at first. The longevity is quite average. I have tried liquid lipsticks from other brands that will last a lifetime on my lips and they were way cheaper.
However, after I’ve moved on from the fact that it won’t give me the longevity I want, I realized that it wasn’t bad at all. In fact, I find myself reaching for this non-stop ever since I got it. I really love the shade, it was one of the most wearable shades I could possibly wear. It compliments my skintone really well. The opacity is great! And I love how matte it is on my lips. 
Overall, I don’t regret buying it and I will undoubtedly recommend it to everyone. It's definitely my go-to liquid lipsticks!

-true to color
-Laguna beach is a gorgeous nude-ish pink
-Not sticky
-cheap plastic tube packaging
-average longevity (despite its name "Long lasting liquid lipstick)

Have you tried this lipstick? What's your favorite liquid lipstick?

I asked several women whether they prefer going to salon or dyeing their own hair. Not surprisingly, majority of them chose home dye kits. Aside from the obvious reason home dyes are cheaper, according to these women, dyeing their own hair also saves them time. It’s quicker to use, just half an hour of waiting, and they get to do their work-stuff while waiting.

While I personally think that salons are still the best way to go because they can certainly do it better, I still prefer doing DIY Hair dye on my hair especially that I don’t have much time and there are moments when you don’t want to deal with “makulit” na stylist. If you know what I mean.

When it comes to DIY-Hair dyes, I’m not really that adventurous in trying out different brands of dyes. Ever since I started dyeing my hair, I have only used Etude House Hair Bubbles for my hair. I told you, I’m not a PRO in hair dyeing, for me, “the simpler, the better!”  I really like EH Hair bubbles, it’s as simple as shampooing my hair.

BUT after using this Loreal Fashion Excellence on my hair, I’ll never go back. Read more to know why.


Excellence brings you intense, visible color and is infused with Hi-Shine Complex. It comes in six newest shades delivering only the richest care for the richest color. Unlike other commercial hair-dye, Excellence contains triple care formula: Micro-cerca essence + amino acid + collagen – powerful combination to protect, strengthen and replenish iar. Hair is silky-soft and efficiently resists breakage from combing. 


The Box comes with:
Pre-color serum
Protective crème colorant
Crème developer
Protective conditioner
Instruction manual

• HOW TO •

I was actually torn between Ashy Nude Brown and Golden Nude Brown. In the end, I opted to go for Ashy Nude Brown because it’s closest to my hair color and since it's the color that matches the brow products I have.

TIP 1: Hair color absorbs better in dirty hair. By dirty, I mean, do not wash your hair prior to hair coloring, not even the night before. I didn’t washed mine – hence, the dull, oily and lifeless hair.

TIP 2: Apply petroleum jelly around your hairline to prevent staining. 
I’m ready, let’s start dyeing!

Apply PRE-COLOR Serum to protect your hair!

Wear your gloves starting this process. Mix the Protective Crème Colorant (STEP 2) into Crème Developer (STEP 3) bottle. 
Close the bottle and shake it! The shaking process warms up the bottle, how cool is that!

Take the cap off and add the comb cap head onto the bottle. 
Oh no, I think I’m doing it in a wrong way! Haha! My sister told me that when dyeing my hair, it’s better to start at the roots. 
Just continue brushing the hair dye from roots to end until your hair is entirely saturated with hair dye.

I applied my hair dye through sections to avoid patchiness. 

Hair coloring isn’t as easy as I thought it would. But, technically, this is my first time to use a hair color like this so it’s understandable. It was really a struggle to apply the product evenly at the back of my head.To add to the burden, I take photos in between steps.

Anyway, after I have completely covered my hair with the dye, I pinned it up (like a bun) --- good thing my sister saw me and she was  like, “NOOOO! You should let your hair down so that the color will be even when you rinse it off”. 

The instruction says that I should wait for 30 mins before rinsing it off. I waited for an hour, just to be safe. 

Rinse your hair and apply the Protective conditioner.
I swear by this! It’s the best after-color conditioner I’ve tried. It is way better than the conditioner (hair treatment as they call it) that came with my Etude House Hair bubbles. 


TADA! They say that Ashy nude brown shades are best suited for women with Cool-toned skin. But it wasn’t bad on me. I feel like this color made my skin appear more vibrant. 
Ashy Nude Brown – is great for subtle tweak.  It won’t dramatically change your hair look but it’s a good color to start with especially for beginners. 
I’m inlove with this hair dye because it made my hair silky-smooth! I had my hair dyed at Salon and I swear, my hair has never felt this soft. I can’t stop touching my hair. The conditioner that came in Excellence is really, really excellent! I wish Loreal could sell it separately – or maybe, I should start trying out their Conditioners for colored hair. 

My review doesn't end here -- Just like me, YOU CAN GET THE CHANCE TO TRY THIS FOR FREE! 

LOREAL Paris Philippines is giving away LOREAL FASHION EXCELLENCE to three (3) lucky readers! 
Just follow the mechanics below. Winners will be randomly selected via Rafflecopter.
