A Photo Diary | Semana Santa “Holy Week”

This is an “I am so sorry I haven’t drafted a blog post for this day” type of post. Due to the lack of internet resources last week, I wasn’t able to write up a blog post for you guys.

I hope this could suffice though.

I have plenty of favorite things in my life at the moment. But something that I think I will never get sick of, are sunsets. Each different in its own way. But equally beautiful in its own way. Sunsets remind me that everyday is another chance to mend bridges, build meaning relationships with one another and more chances to make a difference tomorrow.

Here are a few photos that I took in my little slice of heaven on earth.

Maybelline Master Sculpt | The Review

dsc08952

We all know how Maybelline is killing the drugstore game at the moment(& most of the time), but this has got to be the first time for me to see a sculpting palette from them! I know this came out awhile ago already but I still felt that I had to try it!


It is absolutely crazy on how much Maybelline products I have/had used these past years!(check out my product directory to actually see how many![it’s crazy!]) But none of them were ever like the Maybelline Master Sculpt in 01 Light/Medium. The photo says it all! It is definitely a sculpting product! Go figure! 

The packaging is very practical. It has a brush AND a mirror under the powder, plus, it is packed in a square box-like thing which makes it SO much easier to put in your makeup bag, much like playing Lego in your kit!

I chose the shade 01 Light/Medium because I felt that it best suits my skin tone and the contour shade wasn’t too orange(very important thing to consider). But what I was most interested was to find out how well it would hold up throughout the course of the day. 

After testing this baby for the past 3 weeks(yes, I take these product reviews quite seriously), by applying it at around 7:40am and having it on till about 8pm(I know, gross! But it had to be tested). So I would basically wear this at work the whole day with no touching up and head to spin class right after.

And to my surprise, it definitely held up till my gym session started! I was even surprised to receive a compliment from my instructor that I looked so dolled up that night! (If he only knew that I was actually doing a product review!) But I definitely didn’t expect it to last even after my gym session because it didn’t but you really can’t have it all!

But in all honestly, I highly recommend this sculpting kit to all of you! It is versatile for day & night as it is buildable for a more structured and chiseled look! I love how the sculpting shade easily blended on my cheek and around my face. Did I mention that the highlight was just great?!

Sick Day Beauty Survival Kit

dsc09010

Everyone experiences THOSE days, when we just have no motivation to go to the gym or get  any work done. During those dark, dark times, we always need a little pick me up, whether it be in food form or skin care! In my case, I prefer to be pampered with some products that I love!


Jurlique Herbal Recovery Antioxidant dsc09037Gel Mask | I have a few masks in my skincare arsenal and this has got to be the most lightweight one I have. It has a clear finish on application. My skin tends to be a bit dry when I am sick, probably because I lack some water in my system. This mask really does that trick to rehydrate my skin when I need some extra TLC.

Fresh Sugar Lip Advanced Therapy | I call this the lip rejuvenator. If you are an avid liquid lipstick user, you would probably make the most of this lip balm because it really repairs dry and chapped lips like no other. Yes, even more than Lucas Pawpaw! I tend to leave this by my bed side table to apply on my lips before I head to sleep to allow my lips to recover over night.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist | I usually use this in between my night time skin care routine once in awhile. I tend to generously spritz this all over my face before I apply any sort of cream on my face. For the most part, I like using this because the rose like scent smells really nice. And no, the rose scent is not over powering.

Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream  | If you are into the strong(ish) argan aromatic smell, them I am positive that you will be obsessed with this cream-like oil. It give a natural boost to your skin and can also help moisturize your hair!
