dsc09044-2I don’t really have a lot of beauty favorites this month…Ever since I started my job, I have been starting my days extra early with going to spin class then rushing to work with no time to spare. So the concealer-power-mascara look has been my daily go to office look!


But if you’d like to know what I have been putting on my face…In (sort of) this order, Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in 10 LightRimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Silky BeigeMaybelline Master Sculpt on 01 Light/Medium, L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara and Urban Decay Comfort Matte Lipstick in Stark Naked. Viola!

In other news, I took a quick trip to the beach up north for a weekend and got to take lots of photos of landscapes and what not! Here are some of the photos that I took!

Living Up To My 2016 New Year’s Resolutions | New Promises

To start, I think I did a pretty good job by living up to my resolutions because I made them not too fancy. They were very realistic and true to life. But they weren’t too easy to tick off as well. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, link here!

In 2017, I want to make promises/resolutions that will not only better myself at this moment but for the future as well. Especially when it comes to health and lifestyle.


  1. Don’t compare yourself to others.

I am at a point in my life where I see my (yuppie) friends starting their careers and excelling at it. When a friend achieves something, you can’t help but be so proud of them at the end of the day. Everyone has a different story and their own bumps on their journey, some take a bit longer than others too. So don’t worry your time will come 🙂

      2. Eat better.

Apart from not eating pork, beef and deep fried types of food, I hope to take my healthy eating to a whole new level. I plan on giving up rice for the most part of the year, but my plan is not to cut carbs completely but to eat carbs in form of vegetables instead. We’ll see how long will I last.

      3. Run a 21k.

The past weeks, my cousin and I have been training ourselves to run a 21k by the end of 2017. I know this is a long shot but I think this would be great motivation for us to keep on moving and staying healthy. 

      4. Learn from the wise.

As a millennial, I know we can get a bit self righteous by not listening to people with more experience, thinking that we know how everything works. Listening or allowing yourself to be nurtured by a wiser being is a blessing in disguise. Listen carefully.

5. Empower peers.

Instead of trying to belittle each other for their weaknesses, teaching them the ropes and sharing your ideas will always be the better choice. Make a kid’s day by being the best big brother/sister they’ve never had.

LA Colors Lipstick | First Impressions

IMG_5967 copy

I don’t want to be a debbie downer but I just got to say that these LA Colors Matte Lipsticks aren’t the best drugstore lipsticks out there that I have tried. This was my very first time trying the LA Colors brand and it was well, alright. I got a really good deal for these four shades during a sale on beautymnl during their LIP year sale.

I know it sounds kind of crazy to hoard 4 lipsticks at one time but trust me it came out really cheap in the end. So the main reason why I snatched so many of these was because I was actually because I was searching for the best drugstore bright red lipstick and sadly, I did not find it in this purchase *sad face*.

I honestly had high hopes for the two reds that I picked up, Matte Cranberry Red and Jazzy Red, because it looked so red on the tube. But much to my disappointment, they turned out really sheer and not even RED! It had more of a pink-purple tone. Although it was still a good shade but it really wasn’t what I was looking for.

The shade petal is a nice light nude that wasn’t on the pink side. While for me, the shade Matte Brown Sugar was the winner of the batch, which I wasn’t really expecting. It is a really rich brown shade. I can imagine me sporting this with a top bun and huge sunnies-typical!

The packaging was nothing special, really. Well, for the price, I shouldn’t be complaining. I find though that the product smells like clay and kind of chemical. 

Final Thoughts? Well, I do admire this brand for catering to the more budget end of the makeup spectrum, but I wouldn’t want to wear this on a daily basis because it might dry out my lips in the long run. So was it generally worth the price? Yup.
