During the Maybelline New York Party and press day, our Maybelline IT girl Mau met these Maybelline girls who are definitely every Filipina's style inspiration.

Under The Sea Cafe: My Experience + Rochelle's Birthday Celebration

Friday, September 15, 2017 Philippines


At least even for a day, I became a mermaid! Hooray! I am grateful that as the day goes by, new cafes and restaurants with unique experience and great food to offer becomes readily available. I have a long list of must-try places that I was unable to visit yet. 

Included from the list is the Under The Sea Cafe located on the third floor at 80 Maginhawa Street. Under The Sea is a cafe designed exactly like under the sea. The interiors were carefully and artistically painted with water, corals and sea creatures. It even had a boat anchored at the ceiling that I find quite charming!

When I first stepped inside the cafe, I felt like I was transported inside an aquarium. A huge one! Everywhere I look is simply amazing! There is even a spot perfect for photography opportunity near the entrance. A human-size seashell that you can sit on while wearing their FREE mermaid outfits is the perfect scene to do inside this cafe. For a minimum order of 150php, you are free to use their costumes. Don't worry, they are expandable and available in different colors so you can take a pick of your choice! Of course, Rochelle (, Michelle ( and me took advantage of this studio-like set-up. 

Tables were decorated with sea creatures stuffed toys table toppers. The kid inside you will surely awaken in astonishment to the place. 

The food offered is affordable and the serving size is great. Their menu is complete from appetizers, entrees, pasta, dessert, and drinks. Check out the menu below:

I want to try all of the food but of course I cannot eat them all in one visit. LOL. Anyway, we ordered pasta and appetizer. By the way, their food is delicious! We were satisfyingly stuffed that we were not able to order desserts. 

Cheesy Tuna Alfredo 150php

Caljun Fish and Fries 170php

PiƱa Colada Milkshake 120php and Vanilla Mermaid Milkshake 130php

The main reason why we tried the Under The Sea Cafe is to celebrate Rochelle's birthday and mermaid is one of her favorite characters. This is the perfect place for her to enjoy her day! Thank you so much for being a good friend Rochelle, have a great and blessed days ahead!

We took this opportunity to also announce the winners for Rochelle's Meet and Greet on September 24, 2017! Were you able to watch our Facebook Live? I hope you did so you could check if you won, just in case not, check out Rochelle's Facebook page for the Facebook Live video that she also posted after being live. 

I did a short vlog for the day, watch it on my YouTube account here:

Flormar: Khol Kajal In Black

Friday, September 1, 2017 Philippines


When I started using makeup, I never understood the use and need for Khol pencils. The thought of intentionally smudging the khol liners to my eyes is too messy for my liking. Maybe because I cannot apply it right. My views changed when I attended Nikki's workshop and learned the TRUE use of Khol pencils. (Thank you so much Nikki!)

I knew that the Khol pencil is designed for smoky eyes look but I never got it right. I am so thankful for the workshop because I  now have an idea on how to use it well. Ever since I learned how to apply it correctly, I got addicted in including it in my makeup almost everyday!

I got this full sized khol pencil from the workshop and this is my first time to encounter the brand, Flormar. I did a little research and discovered that this brand came from Milan, Italy. It is a brand famously being used in Italy for generations that now extended to other countries, including the Philippines. 

Let us go and check out Flormar's Khol Kajal in the shade of Black!

Brand: Flormar

Type: Khol Kajal

Shade: Black

Product Description: 


How To Use: 


This khol eyeliner has a pointed tip (which I really like) that made it easier for me to apply it thinly on my eyes. It gives a precise and sharp application. 

Like a crayon, its formula gives a smooth application. It just glides on well. 

It works better when intended to be smudged over when used as an eyeliner. I did not have a problem in smudging it because it is easy specially with a use of a makeup smudging brush. (I tried smudging it with the use of my fingers, it still smudged effectively.)

The color is highly pigmented and matte that it looks nice when combined with a shimmering eyeshadow. Smoky eyes look? No problem just as long as I have this khol with me!


It is a little expensive but fret not, because it will last long since you only use it for lining. 

Not all the beauty department stores caters this brand but I already saw a branch at SM Aura Beauty Department Store. 


Buy again? 100% (Yes oh yes!)

Overall Rating: 5/5

Price: 800+php

Where to buy? So far, I saw a branch at SM Aura but they do not have a stock when I checked their store...I will update this post if I see more of their branches. 

Thank you beauties for reading my review and visiting my site. I hope you will try the use of Khol eyeliners too because they are simply amazing! Stay posted for more review and have a great time ahead!

SilkyGirl: Go Matte Lipsticks (7, 8, 9, 10)

Thursday, August 31, 2017 Philippines


When it comes to lipsticks...I will always say yes! This budget-friendly lipsticks that I will be sharing for today were from SilkyGirl Cosmetics. It is a cosmetic line from Malaysia distributed by Alliance Cosmetic Group that was officially launched last 2005. 

They do have a lot of products like powders and liquid lipsticks but for today, I will be sharing my thoughts with their Go Matte Lipsticks. 

SilkyGirl Go Matte Lipsticks are formulated with Shea Butter, Safflower oil and Papaya extract  to moisturize, nourish and smoothen the lips. 

There are 10 available shades and I am lucky to be given 4 shades to share here on my blog. 

The packaging of their lipsticks is unique, you can see the shade of the lipstick through its clear portion of the casing. 

The shades that I will be sharing with you are 7 (Daring Pink), 8 (Foxy Red), 9 (Loud Fuchsia) and 10 (Spicy Marsala). The colors are combination of pinks and reds. 


The great thing about these brand and their lipsticks is that they did not test it on animals! Yay! 

The Go Matte Lipsticks are creamy that it glides on smoothly and easily over my lips. No tugging at all! In fact, it feels moisturizing too. It did not make my lips drier even after using it for a whole day. 

The colors are great for everyday use and it definitely complimented my skintone.

SilkyGirl Go Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented! One to two layers of application is enough to reach full coverage. 

The lipstick lasts for four to six hours. It does not settle on dry patches of my lips. I am so happy to share with you that the lipstick does not bleed too! 

Lipstick is fragrance-free and affordable for only 200+php!


The lipstick can be fully removed after consumption of food. 

It builds up on lip lines. 

The ingredients and volume of the lipsticks are not listed on the packaging. My estimate for the lipstick's volume is at least 4g or more. 







Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 4/5

Price: 279php

Where to buy? Lazada

Thank you so much for reading my review beauties! Have a great time!
