Hey Sugar Waxing Salon National Hair Free Day

Sunday, February 19, 2017 Philippines


To women, waxing must already be familiar. For me, every time that I hear it, the first thing that comes into my mind is the uncomfortable feel of hair removal. Still, to most women, they use waxing as a standard procedure in grooming unwanted hair. After booking and showing up in their appointments, they are ready to go through the seemingly painful procedure just to emerge outside with a smooth and hair-free skin. 

To be honest, according to the people that I know who does regular waxing, it does not sound as excruciating as you can imagine as long as you go to a trusted and right waxing salon. 

If its your first time, you should take yourself to a reputable waxing salon and let the process be discussed to avoid any cause of anxiety. The waxing salon staff should be able to demonstrate why there is no need to feel self-conscious and assure you that you are in the right hands of experts. 

The aestheticians are trained to work with the services and they do anything to help ease any discomfort to their clients. The process is swift, simple and straightforward. If you think you are finally ready to give it a try, then there is no better time than April 3rd because Hey Sugar Waxing Salon, the country's premier all-natural waxing destination will celebrate National Hair Free Day. 

With this occasion, you can visit any Hey Sugar Waxing Salon Branch between 10AM to 1PM so that you can  get a free underarm waxing and eyebrow threading for free! Amazing, right?

Last Christmas season, we have a colder weather. When the wind blew colder and our legs and feet were covered in tights, pants or boots, it was easy to miss our regular waxing and pedicure appointments. With the summer approaching means we have to trade our warm outfits into colorful shorts, summer skirts, dresses paired with our favorite flip-flops or sandals. 

We must make it a priority to book an appointment for a pedicure as soon as possible. Besides that, we should also jumpstart the summer season with a waxing session to get your stems ready. Do not forget your legs and underarms too! 

Your legs and hands can get the perfect summer shape by booking a moisturizing treatment then followed by a manicure. Also, do not forget to choose a bright hue to color your nails in perfect combination with the season. 

Let us all be super Summer-ready before heading to summer adventure get ourselves primed for the season by getting a head to toe buff and polish.

Maybelline: Powder Matte Lipstick In Touch Of Nude

Tuesday, February 14, 2017 Philippines


Its Valentine's Day! Love is all around wherever you look. I am sure girls prepared for this day more than the usual. For the makeup of this special day, what lipstick did you choose for your date night? Me, I chose the new Powder Matte Lipstick in Touch of Nude for my look. I want to achieve a simple and natural look for a young and fresher face. My boyfriend and I had been together for 11 years now (and turning 12 this 2017!) and I want to look like how we met years ago, back to the time when I wear natural looking makeup and the period wherein I am not yet exploring to dark lipsticks, contouring and highlighting. The shade of Touch of Nude from the new Maybelline Powder Matte Collection is perfect for this look and today I will be sharing my thoughts and swatch for this lipstick. This is also my second pick from the collection. (For my first pick in Maybelline's Powder Matte Lipstick Collection, back read it here.)

The Touch of Nude worked well with my complexion and warm under tone. Its one of the best Maybelline Nude Lipstick that I was able to try. Touch of Nude Lipstick is my favorite of the month and I use it almost everyday. 

I will not give you detailed review about it. 

Brand: Maybelline

Type: Powder Matte

Finish: Matte

Shade: Touch of Nude

Weight: 4.2g

Product Description: Not indicated



I love the smooth and silky feel of the lipstick and the term Powder Matte is perfect for it. My lips look smooth and line-free whenever I use this lipstick. Its super easy to glide on my lips, no tugging at all!

For a matte lipstick, it works great in filling out my lip lines and it does not settle on dry patches. Yay! Its hard to look for a nude matte lipstick that looks smooth when worn. (Check out my swatch below.)

The color is highly pigmented even with one layer of application. It did not made me looked pale even without full makeup when I use it. 

The quality of this lipstick reminded me of a MAC Matte Lipstick and it have few similarities to the shades of Kinda Sexy (but the Touch of Nude has a hint of pink than brown) and the limited edition Enchanted One (but the Touch of Nude is a little darker). (Back read my review for MAC's Kinda Sexy here and Enchanted One here.) You can get the same look and quality in a much more affordable price for only 299php. 

This lipstick is almost transfer-free. It also lightens after eating but not fully removed. The lipstick does not leave any stain on lips after removal. 

Most matte lipsticks require exfoliation before usage but this one does not need it because its a little creamy, at least in my case. 


Since its a matte lipstick, it made my lips a little drier after use. Make sure to moisturize. 


Buy again? 100% 

Overall Rating: 5/5

Price: 299php

Where to buy? Maybelline Counters, Lazada and BeautyMNL (Its on sale at BeautyMNL for only 199php)

My next Maybelline Powder Matte Lipstick to review is my third pick and I cannot wait to share it with you so stay posted everyone! Have a happy love month ahead!

Celeteque DermoCosmetics: Nude Matte Lipstick

Monday, February 13, 2017 Philippines


For me, nude lipstick is a shade that not everyone can rock because sometimes it looks too pale for a person. Plus, wearing nude lipsticks usually requires heavy makeup to make it look more beautiful. Its a good thing that Celeteque created a neutral nude shade that can be definitely worn with any type of skin tone. 

I already tried and reviewed some of their matte lipsticks but the second batch of colors are way better! (For the Celeteque Cherry and Peach review, just click for the link.)

Let us now go to the detailed review. 

Brand: Celeteque

Type: DermoCosmetics Matte Lipsticks

Finish: Matte

Weight: 2.4g

Shade: Nude

Product Description:



The type of color nude of this lipstick is very wearable. It can be worn with any skin tone even without a full makeup on. 

For a matte lipstick, this is very easy to use and apply. The lipstick glides on smoothly on my lips. No tugging at all. 

It does not build up on lip lines and dry patches of my lips. The color is highly pigmented that one layer is enough to coat and color the lips.

The lipstick lasts long and its transfer-free most of the times. 

The quality reminded me of a MAC matte/retromatte lipstick (reminded me of Runway Hit) but this is more affordable. 


Frequent moisturizing is needed since this lipstick contributes to more dryness on my lips. 


Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 4/5

Price: 599php

Where to buy? Watson's, Beauty Department Section on Landmark and SM Stores, Online website of Celeteque. 

If you are looking for an affordable matte nude lipstick, I really recommend this one. Thank you for reading my review and take care everyone! 

Maybelline: Powder Matte Lipstick In Plum Perfection

Sunday, February 12, 2017 Philippines


Today, I will be sharing with you my first pick from the 15 new shades of Maybelline Powder Matte Collection. Last February 8, I attended the launch and posted an article about the new Powder Matte Lipsticks. From my previous post, I already shared the swatches of all the shades available but for this post I will share with you my product review for Maybelline's Powder Matte Lipstick in Plum Perfection. 

The Plum Perfection belongs to the family of red shades. For me, this shade looks more on the brown shade than plum. The casing of the lipstick is the usual casing of Maybelline but its color is a shade of red. 

Brand: Maybelline

Type: Powder Matte

Finish: Matte

Shade: Plum Perfection

Weight: 4.2g

Product Description: Not indicated



For a matte lipstick, this powder matte variant is easy to glide on lips because it has a silky and powder-like texture. After application, it will later on dry and look matte. 

If you want to use a lipstick that looks like the natural lip color, you may want to use this. The makeup artist suggested during the event that you can just dab a little of this lipstick, spread it using your lips and the effect is a really nice natural lip color. 

This is my first choice because the color is borderline brown, plum, red or pink. Depending on the intensity of your application, it can create a different look. Also, even though I apply it darkly on my lips, it is still wearable even during daytime. 

My complexion looked whiter because of the shade of the lipstick. I love it!

The lipstick is highly pigmented so a layer or two is enough to coat the lips so that means this will last long! 

This is really affordable for only 299php each! 

The lipstick is almost transfer-free. It only transferred when I made an effort to swipe my lips on the glass and utensils that I am using while eating and drinking. 

It does not bleed out of the lips. However, some part of the lipstick is easily removed after eating. It does not leave a stain after removal. 


I suggest that you exfoliate your lips before using this powder matte lipstick because it has a tendency to settle on dry patches and lip lines. However, compared to the other powder matte lipsticks that I was able to try, this one does not settle on dry patches and lip lines as much as the others. So, this is still my favorite Maybelline Powder Matte Lipstick shade.

Last, I also suggest that you also moisturize your lips well before and after use, if you are continuously going to use it everyday because continuous usage can make your lips dry. 


Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 5/5

Price: 299php

Where to buy? Lazada, Maybelline Counters
