UNBOXING MY MAYBELLINE TRAINCASE
Finally, I was able to finish my video about the unboxing of my Maybelline Traincase. A customized traincase full of Maybelline products! Yay! (I want to dance while typing this blog post!)
A gift is more appreciated when its customized, do you agree? For me, its a yes because not only did a person bought you something but they also put their thoughts and heart to that item. That is why whenever I get anything customized, I can feel that its really for me.
The traincase has two layers that can be moved to the side. The bottom part of the traincase is spacious that it can accommodate big items such as powders and palettes. Watch my unboxing video:

MAYBELLINE: BOLD AND FIERCE FOR 2017
Late last year, I got an invite for an upcoming event with Maybelline wherein we will get the first dibs on what is in store for the year 2017! Does it include something bold and fierce? Let us find out!
The event was held at Solstice, 8 Rockwell at 9AM. I got a lot of surprise in this gathering and there are so many things to be grateful for! I am so happy to meet up with my fellow beauty bloggers and vloggers. Its like a reunion after 2016! Most of all, I got a trophy (My very first in my life! LOL... I am not active back in school days for sports nor competitions so no trophy ever.) and a certificate of appreciation as a certified Maybelline Girl and also as part of the Maybelline Squad! I am so honored and proud! Its just the start of the 2017 and yet I feel like I just had the highlight of my year!

I am thrilled to share what are the new products that Maybelline will unveil this year! I included it in this video together with the coverage of the event:
Maybelline has a nice line up of new items for us to wait for. The products to be released are complete from face to lips!
With the help of Maybelline, I can now keep up on what is trending this 2017 for makeup looks and it includes Strobing! After all, we all need that shine, right?! Maybelline will release its new strobing stick and cream and I tell you now, it is so nice - I love it! Watch out for my review, okay?
For lipstick lovers, get ready your lipstick holder because Maybelline will release 15 new shades for us to collect from nude, red, pink, coral and plum!
Also, they shared that the ever gorgeous young star, Ms. Liza Soberano - is the new face of Maybelline this 2017! I am a fan of Ms. Liza and I wish I can meet her soon!
There is one game that Maybelline prepared for us and I dared to take the challenge. The challenge is to apply my eyeliner under 120 seconds and I made it in the nick of time. Its a struggle when you have to do it under pressure but what amazed me with the new Hyperink Liquid Liner is it dries quickly so no waiting time needed and because of that, I was able to do it successfully! Bold and Fierce look check!
Mr. Jigs Mayuga, a famous makeup artist here in the Philippines shared a tutorial on how to use the new Hyperink Liquid Liner in three different ways. (I just wondered while watching, how can he do it so freaking easily? ^_^) Anyway, I find his tips very helpful and watching it closely will hopefully help me improve my application! (Crossing fingers...)
I love the pouches from Maybelline, we can have our names written on the back of the pouch done by a professional Calligraphy Artist.
I miss having Henna. I always have it done whenever there is a chance and I am glad that it was offered during the event. I chose the outline of New York City for my wrist!
Since I already chose the Henna, I decided not to have the Jewelry Tattoo done on my skin. It will be too much but its also available in the event.
Wow, I definitely enjoyed my day and I am speechless. I cannot wait to share with you the reviews and swatches of the makeups that I got during the event. Also, I am delighted because I now own my very first traincase! A lot of firsts happened to me this day...my first trophy then my first traincase! Any pick on what I shall review first? Feel free to comment down.

PRODUCT REVIEW: YSABEL'S DAUGHTER'S GINGER FACE AND BODY MIST
I am so happy that I discovered the brand Ysabel's Daughter because they offer great products that I am sure your skin will love. (Like mine do!) Before the year ended in 2016, they released their latest products Green Apple Bath Soap and the Ginger Face and Body Mist. (Check out my review for the Verbena Face and Body Mist and Vervain Apricot Scrub by clicking the highlighted names.)
As expected from Ysabel's Daughter, all of their products including the new ones are all made with natural and synthetic-free ingredients that is safe for our skin. Its one of the reasons why I love using their products.
To give you a short introduction, let us now check out the newest face and body mist, let us all welcome the Ginger Face and Body Mist. If you practice using herbal medicine, ginger is known to soothe hoarse voice and sore throat. All you need to do is drink a tea made with ginger roots. Its the most common use of Ginger, however, Ginger has more to offer than that.
Ginger is also known to help alleviate allergies because it helps in decreasing the congestion in our throat and nose, hence it is also famous in being used for treating colds. Next, the ginger stimulates digestion. If you notice, most spa offers Ginger Tea before and after your massage.
If you are pregnant, maybe your doctor or a family member at some point may have suggested that you drink Ginger because it can help your nausea. It is believed to have Vitamin B6 that helps in relieving nausea.
In relation to my review, Ginger is often used on beauty and cosmetics products. Why? It is because they can help treat inflammations and it is rich in antioxidants. Ginger is also rich in cleansing agents so it is also famous for its antiseptic properties that is being used to treat acne.
Brand: Ysabel's Daughter
Type: Face and Body Mist
How To Use:
The number one great quality of this product is because it is made with all natural and 100% synthetic-free ingredient and yet still effective and efficient.
I can easily use it to spritz on my face and body whenever I feel hot or my face is all dry. The spray can instantly make me feel refreshed and moisturized. Its perfect to use during work-outs!
I also just learned during the event that I can also use it to remove my makeup or set my makeup! Amazing, right? I love it because it also has a refreshing scent that can stay on my face if I use it before or after my makeup application. Plus, it feels light on my skin.
The scent is nice and not overpowering. I can recommend it for those who does not want to use a strong scented colognes or perfumes.
Its affordable because you will be able to get a bottle of 100ml product for only 720php.
Since it is a mist (not a perfume) and its made from all natural ingredients, just do not expect it to last long on your skin and clothes. It lasted for two to three hours for me before I sprayed again.
Buy again? 100%
Overall Rating: 4/5
Where to buy? www.ysabelsdaughter.com, Kultura Filipino at SM Aura, SM Annex and SM Makati, Somera Glorietta 5, Thre Green Company Organic + Natural, EchoStore Serendra, Salcedo and Podium, Mozaic Living, BeautyMNL
I want to try their Shampoo and Conditioner next! Thank you for reading and have a great day everyone!

PRODUCT REVIEW: Y.E.T. DON'T WORRY INFANT MASK (WRINKLE) SHEET
The packaging alone is cute, right? I was skeptical in buying this mask when I first saw it in Althea but the cute bubbly infant on the packaging is hard to resist. Its like her big sparkling eyes are looking at me to buy her! So I did...LOL.
Anyway, its just my excuse because recently I am stocking up on face masks for my 10 Steps Korean Skincare Routine. Its a bit tedious but I think I can make it...most days at least. LOL.
Before I get sidetracked totally, let us go back to the review, I was able to buy this face mask sheet on sale. Its the cheapest price I was able to catch in all of my life! Imagine, I was able to get it for only 24php per sheet! Yay!
Type: Don't Worry Infant Mask (Wrinkle) Sheet
Weight: 23g = 1 mask sheet
Product Description: I am sorry its written in Korean.
Ingredients: Thank goodness that it is written in English!
This is exactly just what I need. something to slow the signs of aging. Honestly, I can already feel and see the signs of aging in my face and body. With the help of this mask - it locks the moisture in our skin and it improves the elasticity of the skin making it close to the soft skin of a baby.
I am amazed on my first use because I can literally feel some tightening on my forehead and cheeks while the masks stays on my face. I do it for a minimum of 15 minutes and maximum of 20 minutes. (But there are times that I am so sleepy and tired that I fell asleep with the mask still on, please do not do that. It will make your skin drier than moisturized. Over exposure of our skin to the mask is not advisable. Please take note of that.)
The best effect is after I removed the mask and after the left over essence dried off. My skin feels smooth and firm. The next day after washing my face, my skin looked brighter and the pores looked smaller than usual. I love it!
The mask fits the holes for my eyes, nose and mouth perfectly. Its a nice fit for Asian face structures. It is also well saturated. The mask is still wet after 15 to 20 minutes.
Using the MiLi Pure Skin Moisture Detector, I compared my skin moisture level before and after use of the mask. I waited for the essence to be fully absorbed and dried on my skin before measuring. My face's skin hydration level is 38.7% and it improved to 40.1% after using the mask. For my neck area, from 39.7, it leveled up to 40.4%. Last, under my eyes, the moisture level improved from 41.4% to 42%. The moisture level in the skin under my eyes did not increased much so I suggest you use other products such as eye cream because the mask does not reach this area well.
There is also a sweet and citrus like combination scent of the mask but its not bothering. I just wish that it somehow smells lavender or something like that to help me relax better while using it.
Most importantly, its affordable!
Cons: None noted.
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE:
Buy again? 100%
Overall Rating: 5/5
Price: 80php (I got it for only 24php while its on sale.)
Where to buy? Althea Korea Online Shop Philippines
Thank you for taking time to read my review and have a great day everyone!
