Unboxing: Althea’s Birthday Party Box!

Hello, hello everyone!

It's been quite some time since I've done an unboxing post for the blog (though that doesn't actually mean that I stopped ordering online). One of my favorite online Korean make-up marketplaces, Althea turned two a couple of weeks back so they have a couple of promos going on all month long.

One of the many promos is a signature and special edition Althea box–the Birthday Party BoxMany of you may already know this, but Althea comes up with special, themed boxes with huge discounts!

The Birthday Party Box in particular, costs PHP1430 (around 30USD) but the actual estimated cost for all the products in the box comes up to around PHP5670 (around 112USD). In total, that's a PHP4240 (82USD) discount, so that means I only paid for 25% of the total price of all of the contents–what a steal! 

My mom and I actually ordered a box each since it was so cheap, so there's no need for us to split or share the makeup between the both of us.

Product Swatches: Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another lip product review after a long break from beauty blogging! I noticed recently that my last beauty-related post was 5 posts ago (that’s a whole 2 months)… I’ll try my best to make up for it, so watch out for the beauty posts that I have lined up for the next couple of weeks!

Today I’ll be reviewing a new product from my lip product collection, the Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipsticks!

Beauty Secrets: How I check on my Korean beauty products before buying

Hello hello!

This week I’ll be doing another special feature (sort of) related to beauty! As most of you know, I purchase a lot of cosmetics and skin care products…so it’s always important for me to check in on the product information and reviews!

However, there isn’t too much information on Korean cosmetic brands online. So I did some research and found an app called 화해 (Hwahae) that consolidates a lot of the information I need about Korean cosmetics and their ingredients (similar to the ThinkDirty app), and I’m here to share this app with all of you!

Product Swatches: NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another installment of my lip product swatches! I featured the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes as a part of my lip product collection last April, as a small portion of my matte lip products (which composes 2/3 of my entire collection). I thought that reviewing all of the matte products in one post would be too much for a single read, so I’ve decided to break it down even further into smaller collections!

Holy Grail Products: CosRx Pimple Clear Pads

Hi everyone!

After a week off of my blogging schedule, I’m back with a new post. The past few weeks + Holy Week kept me busy, which is why I was unable to post anything last week…but hopefully everything will get back into a regular flow / routine from here on out!

Although in my last post I promised that I would get to swatching and reviewing some of the products from my lippie collection, this week’s post will be about one of my favorite / Holy Grail products!

My (Almost) Full Lip Product Collection!

Happy April, everyone!

Just like that, we’ve reached the fourth month of the year. I hope everyone had a good April Fools’ Day–hopefully you weren’t at the receiving end of a terrible prank this year!

This week I’ll be unveiling my lip product collection! I will say that it’s pretty extensive (bordering on excessive) but I absolutely love lip products. So even if I probably can only use one product per day, I now proudly own over 50 different lip products.

So here goes…

Review: Nella Fantasia Honey Snail Ultra Moisturising Cream

Hi again, everyone!

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to blog last week because I caught a terrible flu, but I’m all better now and back with another beauty post this week!

We’re halfway into March, so I thought it would be great to do a review post for one of the products that I purchased and received along with the rest of my Althea.kr haul from late last month. Among the products that I purchased from my last haul, this is one of the ones that I use most frequently…which is why I chose to create this review for this week’s post!
