Review: Alba Botanica Deep Sea Facial Mask

Aloha on a Monday! How are you all feeling today? It's the last day of September!

I'm kinda nursing a headache today, and I think I'm goin down with a flu (hopefully not!).  So I just stayed at home today.  I feel like such an adult for taking a leave from work today, because I actually feel guilty about it since I've got a deadline for today.  But this freakin' headache is just killin' me! So anyways, just to kill the boredom and the guilt, might as well do some blogging.

For today, I'm gonna be raving about this new facial mask that I discovered from Healthy Options recently.

Place bought:  Healthy Options store at Bonifacio Global City
Price: I honestly forgot, but it's around Php200-300, I'm sure!
Packaging:  It's in a light green, big, fat, plastic, and squeezable tube.

I'm a sucker for anything that's easy and quick to use, so when I saw the directions on how to use this facial mask, I grabbed it right away.  And it's not so bad that it doesn't cost too much as well. Plus, it's paraben-free, hypo-allergenic, and made with 100% vegetarian ingredients.  (Translation: it means it's made of the good stuff.)

sorry for the messy tube, just shows how I regularly use it. hehe.

Review: NYX Slim Eye Pencils in Electric Blue and Bronze Glitter


It's been a rainy Sunday here in Metro Manila.  And in my part of the metro, dark skies were looming all day.  Such a gloomy day, alright.  Nevertheless, that didn't stop me from goin' out to my nearby coffee shop to do some work.  Yeah, I know, how boring right?

But because I just finished draining my brain juices in drafting two contracts, it's time for something fun!  Let's get on it!

Place Bought: Pure Beauty store in Serendra, Bonifacio Global City
Price:  I got these on sale.  I got two eye pencils for the price of one, which was Php245.00.
Packaging:  Just a simple eye pencil, nothing fancy.
Shades: Electric Blue - This is a bright blue opaque shade.
             Bronze Glitter - This is light bronze with shimmers.

As you know, if you've been reading my posts lately, I'm in a liner phase.  I can't bear not going out of the house without doing my eyes.  Forget about eyeshadows and contouring 'cause I'm all about heavy eyeliners, girl!

Liner Girl

Heya! How's the week been to you so far? Can you believe it? It's already September! I'm not quite done with my August yet, still got loads of tasks to finish! I can't keep up at all.

This week begins the fall makeup trends in the other side of the world. It's actually my favorite season when it comes to makeup products launching because each brand seems to come out with their best products at this time of the year. Lots of drama reds and burgundy shades for the lips, deep blues and purples for the eyes, and my fave trend of all time - the heavy eyeliner look.

Yeah, I already posted a makeup look recently with me wearing this trend. But I'm kinda addicted to it lately. And while playing with my makeup, I was able to discover the wonders of wearing my dark eyeshadow shades as liners in lieu of the usual liners and gels. I also tried layering my highlighters under my eyes to show the contrast more.

Products used: Shu Uemura UV underbase mousse, MAC power foundation, Benefit Dandelion, Eyebrowz powder, Ever Bilena single eyeshadow in violet as liner over my Essence gel liner, plain Maybelline lipbalm.

Hope you love my look.

Have a great week ahead!
