 Hello loves.. it's the monthly favorites time!! yay! First of all, Oh my gerd!! Where did January go??I can't believe it's already february.. next thing I know I'd be turning 25 this April. Yikes! 

Anyways, I've been really bad with blogging my monthly faves last year and this year I'm gunna commit myself into really doing it. And though I kinda don't have a lot to share and most of these are just beauty related things I just thought I'd still share them with you guys.. So let's get started..


 First one of my favorites is this ETUDE PLAY 101 PENCIL in #22 (Php348).. Oh my gosh you guys.. I've been wearing this a ton on my lips.. the color pay off was amazing. I just dab this on my lips and it looks pretty much I've got a lip tint on.. it's amazing!
 Check out my review about this on here..

Then ofcourse, my SLEEK face form palette in fair (Php722.50) I love this so much and I've been wearing them eversince aI got them. I heard this was like a dupe for the Benefit Hoola Bronzer, maryloumanizer highlighter, and the Nars Orgasm blush. I haven't tried all of these yet so I can't compare.. all I know is that I love this Sleek palette a lot!

Hi loves, its finally weekends and that means I can finally blog again. yay! So anyways, today I will be reviewing one of my newest obsessions.. I recently got this as a freebie when I ordered from Luxola. Which I have a code on and it's BLX-TRINA for 15% off! Ends tonight though. But yeah, I fell inlove with this one and I just couldn't wait to buy a fullsize of this when I'm done with these samples.
 It's from the brand KLARITY which I believe is a Singapore beauty brand.. This one is called CC Lasertox. Now, I've tried all sorts of CC Cream but this was the first time I have ever encountered a CC cream that isn't really tinted at all. But it's more of like an makeupbase/skincare type. It claims to to whiten, purify, repair, firm, smooth, soothe, hydrate, tone your skin. Plus it has SPF and anti-aging, and it's waterproof.

"This CC Miracle White Lotion helps to restore your beauty as it has an instant whitening effect on skin tone. Enriched with diamond powder and wild rosehip extract, skin instantly glows leaving you with a radiant and youthful complexion while added SPF30/PA++ helps to protect skin from harmful UV rays, preventing photo-aging and dark spots. With functions in one, this CC lotion is not only a wonder product, but the non-sticky and non-oily formula leaves skin smoother and hydrated."
At first, I honestly just use this as like my Sunscreen for when I'm out in the sun.. but the more I use it, the more I fell in love with it. I was so amazed by how glowy and bright this made my skin..

  • Whitening, firming, anti-ageing, repairing, smoothing, hydrating
  • The first CC cream with no colorant! 
  • Easily absorbed, leaves a subtle matte look
  • Waterproof, so you can stay naturally fair no matter rain or shine.
  • Helps to reduce acnes, lightens acne marks, soothes skin, and lightens scar marks
  • SPF 30++
  • Paraben Free. Halal
The texture was very light, I love that once I start applying this, it feels very kind of watery but finishes off with a matte and bright texture. I love love this so much and I couldn't rave about this enough. I use this everyday and I just couldn't wait to get the full sized of this one!
LEFT: No CC                            RIGHT: with CC (so much brighter and smoother)

Now, I can honestly say that I can use this alone on my face when I'm heading out to go to the office and don't have to put any makeup on yet.. This creates like a very flawless and bright skin, making a good canvass for makeup. Plus it smells absolutely great!!! It says that you can use this on your body as well but I haven't tried it yet. 

All in all, this has become one of my holy grail products. I have never been so amazed on a product like this before.. it's very lightweight, nongreasy, oily, or whatnot. This just brightens my skin and making it appear healthier and glowing. I am not paid for this I just purely wanted to share this discovery of mine. I would definitely recommend this over and over again over other products! I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!!

Have you tried this before? let me know..

Wish me a rose Essence Lip Liner Review

Hello beauties, I am back yet again for another Essence Lip Liner Review! I love my essence lip liner in Satin mauve so much that I decided to pick another color.. this time it's called Wish me a rose. I was actually wrong about the price, I thought it was 100 something, but actually it was only Php99!!! How affordable is that??
Anyways, so wish me a rose is a very baby pink color.. which I'm not so into these days coz I love me some in ya face type of deep red lipstick. But I don't have many lip liners so I gave this one a go.
I love it!! I love that it was highly pigmented as always.. still very creamy hence, it breaks easily.. so I made sure to apply it on my lips with ;a very light hand.
LEFT: Bare Lips                                                       RIGHT: with one coat of the lip liner

 I love this shade so much!! I'm so glad I picked it up.. this is like my go to pink lipstick and I've been wearing this in the office eversince I got it. It's not too baby pink and it's not too pale either. I think this would go perfectly for like a dinner date or something. Been rocking this lippie with my Bombshell makeup look.

What do you think? x
