ZENutrients All-Natural LIP SCRUB (review)

One of the many important beauty regimen that we tend to ignore is taking care of our lips and I am not exempt to that. Your lips are the first thing that will give you a sign when you're dehydrated or will get affected on any changed of weather by showing signs of dryness and flakiness.  Sometimes we are more focused on exfoliating and moisturizing our skin and forget that our lips need it also. 

Now let me share you my experience with ZENutrients All-Natural LIP SCRUB.

Made in the Philippines

From ZENutrients Website and  Facebook Page---->  Contains exfoliating beads to help remove the layers of accumulated dried up saliva, even embedded food particles and smoke residue. With Shea butter, beeswax, honey and natural bioethylene beads from sugar cane.

Direction of use : Use regularly for beautiful, soft and kissable lips.

Sorry for my lips. I know I don't have beautiful lips and it is extremely dry. 
The reason why I cannot wear matte lipstick. :(

After using ZENutients LIP SCRUB

I Say 

  • This product gently exfoliates the dryness in your lips;
  • It doesn't feel sticky;
  • Make your lips feels soft and supple;
  • No sting feeling when rubbing off into your lips;
  • The ingredients are All Natural (No Harsh Chemicals);
  • Smells sweet;
  • Taste a bit of a honey;
  •  I like the packaging, as you can see in the first photo it comes in a 6 sided polygon glass tub with a metal lid.


  • Best to use at night;
  • You can apply any lip balm to keep your lips moisturized;
  • Be careful not to leave the jar side by side because in my experience the "liquid thing" (I'm not sure what it is, maybe its the honey)  that you found at the bottom of the product will accumulate on the top of the scrub. Please see the photo below.

Would I recommend it?

Yes na Yes!

Maybelline HYPERCURL VOLUM' EXPRESS (waterproof) Cat Eyes (review)

Hi Everyone! Today I will be reviewing a Mascara From Maybelline. This will be my first ever mascara review and I'm so excited (high pitch). :)

Now, Let me present you, MAYBELLINE HYPERCURL VOLUM' EXPRESS (waterproof) CAT EYES.

As you can see in the above photo the wand had a spiky comb style.

From  Maybelline Website, this mascara will give you:

  • 5x Wild Volume, without the clumps!
  • 18 hours wild-eyed curls
  • 75-degree curl with Maybelline's unique curl lock formula
I say:
  • I loved this Mascara. I really love how it turns my tired looking eyes to almost doll looking eyes;
  • It gives you a dramatic cat eye look;
  • Gives your eyelashes a dramatic volume;
  • It gives you a longer looking eyelashes;
  • Yes, as what the website says, it does gives your lashes a curl without using an eyelash curler.
  • The spiky-comb wand, works on reaching the inner corner of my lashes.
Below are my photos using this Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara

My bare lashes

One coat without curling

Two coats without curling

Just two coats and you will see how it lengthens and gives volume to my lashes.

Selfie of the day! LOL

Would I recommend it!

Yes! For those who want dramatic eyelashes.

Wipe the wand first to avoid eyelash clamping. You might also find it hard to remove afterwards since its a waterproof mascara, so I suggest to use an eye make-up remover. 

See you all on my next review! Take care and God bless!

OOTD#1&2 Christmas Party and Christmas Eve

Hi Everyone, It's been more than a month since I posted  here in my blog. Sorry, I'd been so busy at work and also lost my camera that I used in taking pictures. But it's okay, I know I would receive something better in exchange for that.

Anyways, before anything else, I would like to greet y'all a Happy Holidays! It's better to greet late than never, right? Indeed, this is the busiest, costly but exciting time of the year. There are several Christmas parties that we have to attend. I'm sure, we all thinking about "what are we going to wear?". So, without further delay, let me show you what I wore during this Christmas season! :)

During company's Christmas party
Tops: Plain&Prints
Skirt: from online shop in fb Fièvre! I love it!:)
Here's a closer look:

Shoes: Pump heels Primadonna

Bag: Ninewest
Necklace/Belt: SM accessories @ SM Department Store
Earings and Bracelet: c/o Divisoria hehe :)

Christmas Eve outfit

Since I'm just celebrating the Christmas Eve with my family, I'd thought of wearing something simple but very girly green dress. My bf gave me this yellow bag that he bought in the World Trade Center, during their Christmas bazaar. I don't know where he bought this dress but I love it. The sandals are from Charles&Keith.

Thank you sweetie for my picture

Visited: Restaurant -- A Taste of L.A Cafe

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share with you guys the restaurant where my Mr. Awesome and I have our dinner date during our 2nd anniversary. Yes, we had just celebrated our 2nd birthday as a couple and looking forward to spend many more years with him.

Anyway, going back to the restaurant, my Mr. Awesome chooses to spend our dinner date at "A Taste of L. A Café". An old house turned into a cozy restaurant. This place is located at 171 A. Roces Ave. Cor. Tomas Marato Quezon City.

photo by:

It's a bit old but still a good option if you are looking for a fine dine atmosphere.

The following are the list and the perspective price of what we've ordered:

-French Onion Soup --- Php310.00
-Hainanese Chicken --- Php400.00
-Grilled Blue Marline Steak --- Php380.00
-Spicy Duck Pizza --- Php490.00

The price ranges from Php300.00 and up. Yup, it is expensive for me and oh, it has an additional charge for their services, of course there is! lol!. I heard some are not satisfied with regard to the service from the waiters, but with all fairness, during our date, the waiters were so nice, accommodating and very attentive. I don't know, maybe we're just lucky hehe.

In terms of food, gosh I loved it! Promise! Specially the Pppiiiiiiiiizza! It is so delicious. The ultra thin crust pizza with thick melted cheese and burst with some flavor from the spices, really a mouthwatering, I will definitely re-order this one. The Hainanese Chicken and Grilled Blue Marline Steak are the best also, really delicious and worthy of the price. I just got a little disappointed with the French Onion Soup, I don't like it. I prefer the old chicken soup or mushroom soup.

What I also liked about the place is the ambiance; it's so dim, quiet and romantic. By the way, this is also a good place to dine with your friends. There is a certain place for a group who liked to be in an air-conditioned room or for those groups of friends who smoked, so that the non-smoker will not be bothered.

We will definitely go back again and try some of their dishes. I heard the So-Like-Rockefellah is good too. Ooopps, of course Spicy Duck Pizza again. Gosh I'm craving! ( hehehe ).

Till my next review.....

Birthday Gifts!

Hi everyone! I just turned 27 last Sept. 6, and yes I’m getting older guys (waaaaaaaaah). Though, it does not really bothers me coz I believe that “age is just a number”, right!!? And plus the fact that according to my Sweetie, I really don’t look like my age now (of course, naniwala naman ako! Hahaha!ッ lol )

Perhaps, everybody loves birthdays, and who does forget that day? It’s always been a tradition for us that we celebrate our own or other people’s natal day. Besides, no one like to forget that, right? We always make sure that the celebrant will feel special on her/his day, so we intend to send birthday cards, greet them or give them something for that day.

So without further ado, here is a quick glance at some of the gifts that I received during my special day.

2. San San Hydrating Color Dew Lipstick with the shade of 08.

Last but definitely not the least --

Anyway, I want to share what I experienced about this E.L.F Studio blush brush.This blush brush does a prodigious job laying the perfect amount of product that can be blend easily to give a natural looking blush. I have been using this brush since last month and so far I am loving it. 

Yes, I'm able to bring this with me almost every day at work or elsewhere and putting it in a protective plastic cover to be free from dirt.

E.L.F Studio Blush Brush Says.....

This new anti bacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more absorbent and can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. studio brush! -Creates a defined and sculpted look -The tailored design allows for easy maneuvering and precise color application -Use to apply blush or bronzer *Vegan Friendly.

Taklon Definition:

Taklon is the common name for a synthetic fiber used in artist-quality paint, makeup and pin strip brushes. It is a smooth, soft, and somewhat fragile polyester derivative devoid of any protein component or allergen elements and is therefore used in the cosmetic industries as a "green," "vegan," "allergy free" or synthetic alternative to animal hair brushes.

What I like:
  • It’s so smooth;
  • I’m using this like almost two months now and still I don’t experience any shredding of bristles;
  • It has a brush cover;
  • Very affordable;
  • Locally available;
  • It blends so well, that can make a natural looking blush;
  • It has a pointed brush which I used to contour the hairline; and
  • A lightweight brush, that’s made it easy to bring everywhere.
What I Don't Like:
  • Nothing! 

Final Verdict:

I really love how it works. I'm glad that E.L.F come's up with this wonderful, affordable and vegan-friendly brush!♥
