COMPARISON OF NARS' ORGASM VS SUPER ORGASM
Now sharing my comparison of NARS Blushes in Orgasm and Super Orgasm. Let me enumerate the differences:
1. Orgasm is more pinkish while the Super Orgasm is peach.
2. Orgasm looks more matte compared to the sparkling Super Orgasm.
3. Super Orgasm looks sheer than Orgasm but when applied on my skin (NC20), Super Orgasm is more pigmented and requires lesser layer of application compared to Orgasm. (Note: Its easier to build colors than controlling the amount.)
4. Both blush are powder but velvet-like.
5. Both are permanent edition from NARS.
6. Both costs 1650php each.
7. Both gives a natural glowing look on cheeks.
8. Both looks natural blush when used.

I hope this helped you for choosing which blush you prefer! :) Have a nice day everyone!

PRODUCT REVIEW: NARS' ORGASM
I cannot stop gushing about the NARS blush in Super Orgasm and finally, I was able to purchase the Orgasm shade! Both Rochelle (rochellerivera.com) and I bought it at Rustan's in Shangri-La, Mandaluyong. Its like twinning but instead of clothes, we got blushes.
The box is simple and yet I know that it holds one of the best blushes ever released in our time.
Shall we get on to the review? Okay! :)
Product Description: Peachy Pink With Golden Shimmer
The blush was cushioned and protected by a soft cardboard inside. I still keep the blush inside this soft cardboard and as well as inside the box to keep it safe.
The compact blush has a plastic covering to protect the blush as well as to keep the dust particles inside.
I love that the blush has a mirror inside. I can use the mirror when I travel.
The blush is shimmery but not as shimmery as Super Orgasm. The color is sheer so I need to apply several layers before it can be really appreciated. Even with several layers, it still feels light on my skin.
This shade looks more natural on my cheeks compared to Super Orgasm but I still love both shades because I look like I have a natural blush instead of makeup, specially since the shade is peach in color. Note: A peach based colors suits warm undertone.)
I like its glowing look. I feel like I am blooming whenever I use this because of the natural blush and glow.
The texture is smooth and when applied on my skin, it lasts for 5 to 6 hours with slight fading.
The packaging of the blush is like a magnet to dust or dirt. Also, avoid storing it to warm environment because it can get sticky.
See how sheer it is? Even with my swatch its barely noticeable.
Buy again? 100% (Definitely!)
Overall Rating: 5/5
Where to buy? NARS at Rustan's Beauty Department Store.
For my next post, I will be sharing the swatches between NARS Super Orgasm and Orgasm so check it out beauties! Have a great time everyone!

IMPORTANCE OF PANDORA'S SAFETY CHAINS
You may find this article odd but I wanted to share my thoughts about safety chains for Pandora bracelets. So here's the story...two of my friends and one colleague at my work unfortunately lost their Pandora bracelets while wearing it. One thing in common about their stories? All of them did not have the safety chain.
In collecting charms for my Pandora bracelet, I never thought that the safety chain would be so important. It has always been a part of my wishlist for charms but never been made as priority.
The reason why I never made it a priority to buy the safety chain is because of the price. Its definitely expensive compared to usual charms. Price ranges are from 2570php up to 25,000php depending on the style and design.
According to Pandora, Safety Chains can be worn on the bracelet to keep the charms from falling off and being lost.
I panicked when I learned that the Pandora bracelets can easily get lost if the clasp is already loose and it may open while you are wearing it. That is how they assumed how it got lost while wearing it. They all advised me to get one soon before I regret loosing my bracelets. Imagine all the investment that you already put on for the bracelet and charms!
After earning some extra, I decided to finally get one. No need to be extravagant, I just chose the design that I liked from the styles offered by the cheapest price.
At first, I thought that the Safety Charms are all the same in terms of its length. I was wrong. It has four sizes that is customized for a better fit on you. After giving it a thought, I agreed. Why? If the safety chain is too long for your size, what is the purpose of it holding your bracelet together and not falling off of your wrist? The size just needed to be exact so that you can easily slip the bracelet on or off while its attached but still not fall off while wearing it when the clasp accidentally opens.
The sizes available are 4, 5, 6 and 7 centimeters. There is also a proper way of putting it on. Make sure to screw the part of the safety chain from the locked side last to seal it properly. This way even though the other part of the chain may twist, it will not twist out of the bracelet without really twisting it the right way.
I am not sure what size the sales lady chose for my bracelet but I think its around 5 or 6 cm. I hope that this blog post may help you decide on protecting your Pandora bracelet better. :)
Have a great day everyone and keep safe!

CATHY DOLL JUST RELEASED THEIR AA CUSHION AND CREAMS!
Hello Beauties! I have something new to share and its another great products by Cathy Doll! I luckily got an invite to attend the launch of Cathy Doll's new babies and its also an intimate get together with my fellow beauty bloggers that was held at Italliani's, Shangri-la last November 24, 2016.
Cathy Doll just released their "Automatic Aura" line of products that is offered in Creams and Cushions. Just the word "Aura" makes me want to use it. Right? It sounds like something that I wanted to use on my face and feel like a shining star.
The event was hosted by my all-time favorite Blogger, Ms. Nikki Tiu of www.askmewhats.com. She is one of the beauty bloggers that inspired me to pursue my blog and be active in writing. In short, I am her fan! I first discovered her blog from Sample Room and its also through Sample Room that I managed to meet her for the first time. Until today, I follow and read her blogs! Go for it Ms. Nikki, keep on inspiring us! :)
Cushions and Creams are so in right now specially in Asia. I am a fan of cushions (they are just amazing) and I am so happy to get another one to try and review!
To give your a quick preview, the Cushion has three shades while the Cream has two. Both can be easily blended and absorbed by the skin.
The AA Cushion has an SPF protection of 50. It has a cooling sensation when applied on skin and it has the benefits of instant Aura, Anti-Acne and Anti-aging. It is available in Light Beige, Natural Beige and Sand Beige. I am sorry, my file for the three swatches of the cushions got corrupted so I cannot share it on my blog. I will try to swatch it again from the stores and edit this blog post so I can still share it. (Ms. Kaycee of kikaysikat.com posted the swatches of cushions on her Instagram account just in case you already want to see it now.)
The AA Cream is available in Natural Beige and Light Beige. The AA Cream is a liquid foundation that feels light on my skin. I tried it on and its easy to blend and was quickly absorbed by my skin. My shade is Natural Beige but I can also use the Light Beige if I want to look a little whiter because it also blends with my skin tone. I just prefer using foundations that looks natural as my skin tone.
The cream has a sun protection of SPF45 and its higher than usual foundation creams. Using the AA Cream will give an instant Aura and it also has an anti-acne and anti-aging effect that we all so secretly wanted.
I will post a separate detailed review for this but for now, check out the swatches of the AA Creams:
A demo was done by a Cathy Doll Team Member during the event wherein half of her face had the cushion used while the other half has the cream applied. Cathy Doll suggested that we use the Cathy Doll Milky White Cream first before applying the AA cream or cushion because it can help in enhancing the glow of the skin.
Watch the demo and the event on my short video below:
I am also grateful that I was able to meet the team of Lifestrong Essentials specially Ms. Marge Lee during the event.
I had so much fun and I am so happy to bond with my fellow beauty bloggers. I am excited to share my detailed reviews so wait for it, okay?
The AA Cushion and Creams are now available at Zalora and Cathy Doll Booths. The AA Cream costs 750php while the AA Cushion costs 1100php.
Congratulations Lifestrong Essentials, Cathy Doll and Ms. Nikki Tiu for the successful event!
Again, wait for my reviews everyone and have a great day!
