Kocostar Unboxing

Just in time for my special day, Kocostar messaged me about some PR kit. If you aren't familiar, Kocostar is a Korean head to toe mask expert. They are a professional mask pack brand that creates unique products for hair, face, hands and feet. 

Imagine my excitement when I received their message. If you follow me on IG, you know that in skincare products, I love sheet masking. This is like Christmas for me because they asked me to choose from their line of different mask. I can't wait to try 'em soon.


Colourpop Cosmetics Haul

It's been forever since I last purchased these Colourpop goodies and I totally forgot to share my haul. When I was cleaning my camera's phone, I found the photos and wanted to share them here.

Long time ago, I found out from a beauty group that Colourpop was having a sale. That time, they have a freebie on their website for every $50 purchase plus free worldwide shipping. Some lip products were also on sale individually so I grabbed the chance to meet the $50 mark.



Months before that, I got to experience the brand first time when I purchased my first three Colourpop lippies on a store online. I loved those lippies in general so when I heard the news about the sale from a beauty group, there's no thinking twice. I immediately bought the lippies directly on their website.

Since I got these products for so long already, I'm dropping here some of the photos of the items remained on my cam's phone and some little impressions on them.




I love these satins! My first Colourpop lippies were all matte and I got interested to try the former. I didn't know that Satins also worked great as well. Plus they have a wide range of beautiful colors to choose from. Sadly I haven't swatched them anymore on the lips and gave some to friends, hence no lip photos.




I also got some eyeshadow and bronzer aside from the lippie collection so I could try how their other makeup products works. Not really a fan of those glitter on my face though I always like looking at their swatches because they look great!





I wanted to try their Lippie Stix even once and because they are very cute. I like how sleek this was though the color looks dark on me. I am still using this until now and it's so pigmented that a little goes a long way. I'm not even halfway of it.

Overall, I love the lippies. Majority of what I got were nudes and there were colors which I dislike so I gave them away to so that they will not be in stock on my vanity for so long.

If asked if I will purchase again on the site, definitely! Though I believe there's a restriction now when purchasing lip products. I don't know how it works though.

Thank you Colourpop for the sale. I hope for more sale and freebies in the future. Also hoping for more money so I can buy more lipstick too! 😁

Candy Dollz The Magic Tour 2020

I almost cannot remember signing up on this event on one of the blogger groups I am part of on Facebook. Good thing,  a few days before the event I was reminded when an invitation was sent to me by Candy Dollz. The event was held at Robinsons, Angeles last January 18, 2020. My work schedule was only until noon that day so I confirmed my presence. I discovered that it's a beauty product event, and as I am always open in discovering new beauty products in the market, I'm glad that I was chosen to experience it. I always get giddy how these companies can develop these beauty products which somehow helps consumers feel great about themselves by using such items. 

Anyway, a little side story. I actually went at Robinsons Starmills first that day only to find out that there's no event on that particular mall branch. Upon rechecking, I saw that the event poster stated its at the Angeles branch. (This is why reading is very crucial!) Perhaps I was so bombarded with other things when I read the poster that's why my focus was missing that time! 😜


It was now a given that I was late for the event. Upon entering the mall's front doors, I felt that the floor's kinda shaking because of the loud scream from the fangirls on the 3rd floor. I know it's normal because I am a fangirl myself and that situation is already normal to me. 

Upon arriving, the program already started. The mains were Daniela Cristofani, a Starstruck Avenger which is also the Candydollz Ambassador together with the Gwapitos namely Mateo Gabriel, Justin Uy, Jeter Evangelista and Joveboy Borromeo. I found out that these celebrities were vloggers which teenagers idolizes nowadays. 

The event were mainly performances from them. There were also interviews, Q and A and games to enjoy the show. 



There were also special guests from Boyz R Back, Urban Boyz Captivated and Supreme Academy Artist Center. 










The venue was packed with teenagers and I really felt such huge excitement from the audience! I am a fangirl myself so I know what it feels like. I like the vibe and the energy. Makes me want to attend more concerts of the kpop idols I am fangirling with. Hello SS9!!! 💕

Anyway, we got a special gift during the event and these consists of some beauty soaps and their main product the Maggie Magic Cream Blush. I am currently testing out the soaps and blush and will edit this post soon for the review or I might create a separate post for it. 


Xoxo!


SkinfluencersPH Grand Meet Up Event

I didn't know that my once online skincare community will also be like my family.

I've been part of this group called SkinfluencersPh on Instagram around September last year. When Ruby (@marikitbyruby) invited me to join the group, I gladly said yes. Tbh, I got giddy receiving the invitation knowing that I'll be part of a group where we can share the same interests. I've been really hooked with skincare and beauty stuff in general ever since I started my blog and being able to be part of that particular circle somehow excites me. Looking back now, I believe it was one of the greatest things that happened to me on IG.


Actually at first, I thought this group was just a mere engagement group like all other engagement groups I'm part of, (I've been inactive to most of them tbh) but I was wrong because we bonded like family and I noticed when I joined the chatroom that everyone there instantly clicked. I finally had a comfortable place which happened to be my escape with my busy, mom life. There, we talked about almost any topic, not even skincare-related and can still manage a little chismisan here and there. 

So December came and we decided to plan a gathering where we could meet up in flesh and just enjoy each other's company. What started as a simple get-together turned into an event flocked with sponsors we didn't expect to support us. Some showed up at the event day itself and handed the attendees some gifts.

There were a lot of food too!

Here are some brands from the loot! We even had a difficult time shooting them at the scene because there's a lot!









... And did I mention Miss Liz Lanuzo of Project Vanity was there?! She casually shared important info on skincare and also left some worthy words on how to sustain ourself in social media.  She's my beauty and life peg, really!





We are truly grateful to all the sponsors for sending us their gifts for all the attendees. Watch out for our teaser pics and videos on our IG feed and stories as we will all share reviews of the items we received that day. Follow @skinfluencersph on IG for more deets.


WITH THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS OF SKINFLUENCERSPH




Again from the bottom of my heart, I wanted to thank all the sponsors who really poured their trust to our group. We hope you will continue supporting us in the future. Big thanks also goes to our Mother PTA President Ruby 😁 for being so hardworking in making the event possible from the planning stage to booking the venue, down to talking to sponsors and arranging the loots (plus a whole lot more!) I truly applaud you dear and with the other girls efforts too. I'm sorry I was not in the metro to help you guys.

To my fellow content creators who were there, for all the effort in putting up a successful event like this, kudos to all of us. But more than that, to everyone who's been our support system in this stressful and toxic world of social media, may we not be blocked again and may we have more PR and winnings to come, thank you! 💗 Instagram has been a better place because of YOU.

My Loot

Love you my #SkinfluencersPh family!

Tips on how to achieve good skin

Good skin care can keep your skin healthy and glowing. According to MayoClinic.com, if you don’t have time for intensive skin care, you can still pamper yourself by following these tips:

·         Protect yourself from the sun by using sunscreen, seeking shade and wearing protective clothing;
·         Don’t smoke because smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin, the fibers that give your skin strength and elasticity;
·         Treat your skin gently by limiting bath time, avoiding strong soaps, shaving carefully, patting dry your skin and by moisturizing dry skin;
·         Eat a healthy diet as this can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. Drinking plenty of water helps keep your skin hydrated; and
·         Manage stress as uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. Get enough sleep, set reasonable limits, scale back your to do list and make time to do things you enjoy.
