Review: Jazzy France Dame de Coeur Color Stay Lip Color

According to beauty forecast, one of the trends that's going to make a big comeback this 2015 is the 'bare minimum' or better known as the 'no makeup' makeup look. To tell you honestly, I don't think this trend really went away because simple, natural-looking makeup is and always will be a staple - it's a classic that every girl should learn how to do at least at one point of their lives. Another forecasted trend is about the hype on multi-tasking products. Enter the new Jazzy France Dame de Coeur. :)
By the way, in case you didn't know, Jazzy France is the brand formerly known as "James Cooper Jazzy Collection". They have been around for quite some time now and are quite popular amongst beauty enthusiasts because of their cream foundation that offers unparalleled coverage for a drug store brand.

Review: Tony Moly Lovely Eye Brow Pencil

I've been experimenting with different brow products since last year and it amazes me how I always find myself going back to automatic pencil-types for that quick brow transformation. For most of last year, I stuck with the IN2IT Brow Cake and MakeUp Academy Pro Brow Ultimate Brow Kit but ever since I tried the Tony Moly Lovely Eye Brow Pencil I got during the End of Year Sale, I can't seem to put it down. Thank goodness I bought two! <3
Product Description:
Brow perfection is within reach with these fabulous eyebrow pencils by Tony Moly. The easy to use 2-in-1 brush and pencil combo will help you to create the perfect brow in minutes. Simply apply light feathery strokes to the eyebrow to build volume to your preferred level, then reverse the pencil and brush the brows to blend!

BDJ Box Beauty Soiree: 'Ready, Set, Gorgeous!' With Covergirl

During the start of the love month, BDJ conducted the 'Ready, Set, Gorgeous!' With Covergirl Soiree, their first beauty soiree of the year. It was held at The Open Space in Makati City. The registration wasn't 'til 1 in the afternoon but girls were lined up outside the venue as early as 12 noon. I know because I came earlier than I care to admit, too. But I decided to eat at a nearby place first before actually heading to the venue. Oh, the things girls do for the love of makeup, haha.
The soiree introduced the brand’s newest collection "Ready, Set, Gorgeous!" which comprises of a liquid foundation, a concealer, and a pressed powder. The products all come in different shades for different skin tones and all are amazingly budget-friendly!

Review: Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

To take a break from all the travel posts, how about a review on the highly raved Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation? This is, after all, a beauty blog. I've been switching foundations more often than usual these past few months. I'm just trying to get a better grip on what products work best for me and why.. or maybe I'm just bored. Haha. That said, keep your eyes peeled for a few foundation reviews in the coming weeks. Let me start with one of my current favorites from the bunch, the new Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation. :)

Pre-Birthday Outing: Capones Vista Beach Resort, Zambales

After a tiring day at the SandBox, we headed to Zambales in search for a nice beach. By the way if you haven't read about our SandBox experience, do check it out HEREWe already made an online reservation at Villa Janella Beach Resort but to our surprise, a part of the resort was being renovated and to tell you honestly, it looked nothing like its pictures online. The place didn't have a gate of its own so locals and construction workers can easily get in. There was absolutely no security or recreational activities for that matter. It was a total bust!
There was no way we were staying in a place like that so without plan B or any prior knowledge about the place, we decided to just drive around with hopes of finding a better beach resort. Good thing December wasn't a peak season for beach resorts so we were able to score two rooms at the lovely Capones Vista Beach Resort - about 10 minutes away from the first resort. I'll take it as a blessing in disguise because if it wasn't for the misleading photos of the first resort, we wouldn't have been in the area and we wouldn't have found this little paradise.

Pre-Birthday Outing: SandBox Alviera, Pampanga

A few days before I turned 23 last year, my relatives decided to go out-of-town for the weekend. First stop was the much-talked about outdoor adventure getaway in Pampanga called SandBox. I'm not much of an outdoorsy person - I'm such a potato couch and there's nothing I hate more than hiking. But I believe SandBox is a great way to shake things up a bit. I never thought I'd enjoy outdoor activities this much! Oh, and don't be confused. My birthday was last December and this is just a super late post, haha.

SandBox at Alviera is a unique getaway that redefines outdoor adventure and fun. It features a full stretch of exciting attractions from wall climbing to zip lines, mini golf to ATV, and so much more. Everyone in the family has something to do here from playground for the toddlers to Mini Golf for the grandparents! With a mountain range along the horizon and the surrounding wide plains, SandBox is definitely the place for family outdoor fun!
