BECCA Beach Tint in Raspberry

The BECCA Beach Tint is quite an expensive find, but one that I’ve been looking for for so long. I went to Adora to pick one of these beach tints up, but after purchase I found out that the mark-up was nearly double the original price. I would love to buy more of these, but I might have better luck online, since the price mark-up is so high and that’s the only retailer I know in Manila that carries the brand. However, after everything that’s been said, I highly recommended the Beach Tint and I don’t regret this purchase. I haven’t extensively used this until I went to Japan on vacation. I wanted to keep my makeup bag light and portable and I succeeded, somewhat. I wanted to bring this because it is a multi-purpose product, for use on the lips and cheeks. It is also supposedly waterproof (which explains the name). It was when I was on vacation that I appreciated the versatility, ease of use, and overall greatness of this product. I got …

Quickie: Le Métier de Beauté Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipstick in Bondi Beach

I’ve had this lipstick for a while now—it’s been in my drafts since January 26—but I haven’t gotten around to writing a proper review, I think because of the pictures. The original pictures I had taken made the lipstick look so red and so vampy, I don’t even know what I did to get that sort of dramatic color shift. Anyway, now that I’ve got a proper picture, let’s talk lipstick! This is the Le Métier de Beauté Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipstick in Bondi Beach. In shorthand, I refer to it as the LMdB Lipstick because there are just too many words. It is a mauve-y rose color with a creamy-smooth texture and consistency and a sort of pleasing quality to it that makes it very agreeable to most people and especially agreeable to me, lover of purples and plums and mauves. I was looking for one shade in the lipstick range to try (because these are expensive at $34 each, yo) and Bondi Beach one called to me the most. Naturally. The color …

Quickie: Snoe Beauty’s Let it B with WasaB BB Cream

I didn’t really need another face base, let alone two! But let me explain. It all started with soap. My sister wanted me to get her some soap from Snoe Beauty, but I am such a hermit that I ended up buying it online, which is dangerous territory for someone like me because I end up buying other things. Anyway, long story short, I got curious about Let it B with WasaB, a BB Cream. Let it B with WasaB anti-oxidant BB Cream fortified with Wasabi Extract contains a potent mixture of Calcium, Vitamin C, Potassium, Antimicrobial properties and more! It can promote oxygenation of cellular tissues as well as strengthen your skin’s defenses against free radical damage. Tested at SPF 30++. I wanted to try other variants, but this was the cheapest one I was interested in at Php 499. The reason why I have two is because they accidentally sent me the wrong shade (Warm Honey instead of Perfect Beige) and the customer service was awesome because I got it the day after …
