Skin first, Make up second! Glossier.

Saturday, February 17, 2018

Growing up, I was never really the type of girl who was into make up, girly things, or anything "normal" girls are into, I was more of an introvert type, watching Anime at home, never really cared what I looked like, but ever since I started working, I became more conscious of my overall appearance, and started appreciating make up in a different way. Before I thought that make up was there to change your appearance, be someone you're not, and it was just for boys to think you're pretty, but now I've realized that its a different form of art, and its for you and you alone. (still not good at putting on make up tho FYI lol)

I've been wanting to purchase from a brand where their Philosophy is to enhance your current beauty instead of concealing or trying to change something, and that's what GLOSSIER. is all about!
"Skin First, Make up Second" - their products are focused on skin care and how to enhance your natural beauty!

When you go to their website, you'll see that the models are women of color, so it means their products would work on any race/color, and at the same time, you'll find that the models barely have any make up on, if you're into the "No make up" make up look, then this brand is for you! They are all about the dewiness

Be naturally beautiful! As you can see the models in their website are not full glammed when it comes to make up~ feel free to visit their website and purchase!

With that being said, I did buy stuff for myself!
  • Glossier. Cherry Balm Dot Com

From Glossier Website:
Balm Dotcom

The Cherry Balm Dot Com is a universal Skin salve that you can put anywhere! but since I got the cherry one (one of their newer flavors) this does have a little bit of tint to it, which I prefer since I just want to add color to my lips most of the time~

Cherry Balm Dotcom
(this specific image is from Pinterest)

This retails for about $12 USD (roughly 625 PHP), of course if you buy it here in the PH it would retail to about 980-1100 PHP because of tax and all that, so buying it from the website itself is cheaper~

  • Glossier. Cloud Paint BEAM
From Glossier website:
Cloud Paint

This adorable seamless cheek color is a fan favorite among beauty gurus! it's really sheer, its easy to blend, the color looks really natural and it gives you a "Sun kissed" look, or the "my cheeks only better" look!

There are actually 4 shades to this series:

And I got the BEAM one because I liked the "flushed look" 

Glossier Cloud Paints in Beam, Dusk, Puff and Haze
(this specific image is from

This product retails for $18 USD (about 940 PHP), but again buying it here in the PHP this retails to around 1200 - 1400 PHP depending on where you buy it~

And the last Product I got was;

  • Glossier. Lip Gloss
From Glossier website:
Lip Gloss

I love this lip gloss! it gives you that healthy, plump, full looking lips, and there's no tingly sensation! I'm not into lip glosses because of that warm-feeling, and tingly sensation, and I'm happy that this product does not have that at all! This is a crystal clear gloss with no added tint, but it's glassy, and classy!

(this specific image is from

This product retails for $14 USD (730 PHP), again locally priced at around 1100-1200 PHP. But I have to tell you guys, the prices are worth it!

They all came in this pretty and well known Pink Bubble Wrap Glossier pouch!

And another thing I'm really happy  about is they also came with stickers!

Overall, I'd rate these products 10/10 because they are really easy to use and you get what you paid for, quality and quantity all in one!

If you've visited their website, you can see that they only ship within the US, Canada and UK, so I had my auntie who lives in the US ship it over to the PH, Tax wise, retail pricing, and of course time wise it is definitely cheaper. My boyfriend paid for these actually, THANK YOU SO MUCH! <3

You can order these locally if you don't mind the pricing being a little higher than how much it is in their website.

You can buy/order these from BEAUTY MNL, or Make Up Authority PH ; these two are the most recommended sites you can try purchasing these from!

Anyway, thank you so much for reading! Hope you enjoyed!

Life Lately 10.31.17

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

 It's been a while! Like a month or so >< been super busy as usual, a lot of things going on at work, and nothing blog-worthy has been going on as well... but! I don't want to neglect blogging so I'll still be doing it hopefully on a monthly basis~ but yeah, a lot's been going on for the past few weeks and it mostly involves eating... I did cut my hair shorter than usual but yay for a new look!

I would say the most blog-worthy thing I did was going out with the bf 10/31/17 in order to celebrate his birthday in advance! Since his birthday is 11/2, we both have work, so we decided to celebrate early!

I gave him my birthday gift, or as I'd like to call it... Birthday Basket! lol I got him a lot of stuff! of course all things he can use! Ate at Dohtonbori and St. Marc Cafe for dessert~ It was rainy so it was hard to go out and stuff, driving was also a little harder because of it~

Doggie selfies!

Dohtonbori has some interesting posters! We sat in like a private room at the resto, and it was Japanese style, so we sat on the floor! It was sooo relaxing!

We ordered Mike's favorite, Omelette Yakisoba~

This is one of their best on the menu! It's something we'll always order when we eat there! lol

We also tried Monjayaki for the first time! We got the cheese monja! it was sooo good! (despite what it looks lol)

And of course, to finish the date off, we had dessert at our favorite, St. Marc Cafe! We were already super full at the time so I suggested we just get 1 parfait since it was big... we had a hard time finishing it lol

We both had so much fun!

I hope we get to do more stuff like this!

Thanks again for dropping by everyone!

Hope to blog soon!~

♥ PINK CRES. IN MANILA ♥ (9.9.17)

Saturday, September 9, 2017

It's been a while since I posted, gosh I didn't realize I was so busy these past few weeks I completely neglected my blog, but! to make up for it, this post is extra special! Because... I GOT TO MEET PINK CRES. ♥♥♥ I'm so happy like my face looks like I slept with a hanger on my mouth! I can't stop smiling! lol I met a lot of new friends, and I also had a blast!

PINK CRES came to the Philippines as part of the ASEAN-Japan Television Festival 2017 representing Japan! The event was held at Trinoma Mall which is really near my place so I'm so happy! It's also free entrance!!! I didn't need to pay for anything! A few of my friends arrived super early like when the mall just opened, and they actually waited by the event, all prepared with this tarp!

The event organizers noticed this and let us in! so we got a really good spot, not too near because we would need to look up the stage, and not too far, it was just right! PINK CRES was the 2nd group to perform and they performed 3 songs:
2. Kirei. Kawaii. Mirai
3. Summer Wonderland

We were also given free pink Glow Sticks and it was really fun!
While waiting for the event to start, I met 3 Japanese girls who flew all the way from Japan just for this, and they're actually going back right away the day after ;_; But we're friends in LINE now and in Twitter lol

Haru, Tamago, and Toto! They said they thought I was japanese!~ I got to practice my nihongo again after so long, I;m glad I still sound natural and understandable~ they brought their PINK CRES towels with them, and even wore PINK CRES shirts! They were also originally a fan of Berryz Koubou like me and loved Miyabi! The 4 of us talked about Hello!Project, old and new! it was so much fun!

But of course the tension started when PINK CRES went out!

(there's my glow stick lol)

I'm so happy that the Filipino fans were also really supportive! It was like a dream! they were so near! everything was so surreal! the things I just used to watch at DVD concerts, I somehow experienced it here! (too bad the performance was too short ><) we're all hoping they felt the warm support and decide to come back or hold a mini concert!

(these photos from Tamago's professional camera lol she was so prepared!)
Ah Hikaru and Yuuka look so cute!

and of course!

MIYABIIIIIIIIII *A* (fangirling at its finest lol)

She looks like she's waving at us!!! ohohohoho!
I've been a Hello!Project fan since 2005, (12 years!) and I'm the same age range as the H!P Kids so I'm still pretty sad they've all graduated, but I'm happy that Miyabi (my favorite Berryz Koubou member) decided to continue being an idol and formed this group! PINK CRES is such a fun and cute group to watch!

And of course after the performance is the interview portion! So happy to hear they're had fun even though their stay was short~

Of course after their segment, we all went down and tried to wait for them, it was a waiting game for us! but we didn't lose!

Some photos of me and Haru, Tamago and Totochan while waiting for PINK CRES

And finally... We met them! up close!

We got to meet them!! I was at the very front! they shook my hand and talked to me a bit! Hikaru and Yuuka said my Japanese was very good they thought I flew from Japan to see them! They were shocked when I told them I was not Japanese lol I was able to tell miyabi that I have been a fan since her Berryz Koubou days and she was so thankful and shook my hand again! (I'm such a fan girl right now lol)

And not only that...

We were able to take selfies! I'm really so happy! The three of them were so nice! They tried to attend to every request the fans made, and they were even the ones holding the cellphones/camera's of the fans and they were the ones taking selfies with us!

Hikaru asked me if I was okay since I was being squished since I was at the front, and everyone at the back was pushing lol (sweet <3)

They even signed my Vicchan/Makacchin phone case!

Ah this is one the happiest days of my life! It was all worth it! the wait, and all that. WORTH IT!

Toto sent me this photo via LINE

Kyaa! Me taking my selfie with Miyabi! <3 thanks so much!

And of course! A group photo with the fans! (this was at the earlier part, and the other fans we're here yet) but miya was so nice! all the group photos from different fans cellphones were all taken by her! <3 so sweet and adorable!

There's me at the very front lol

Overall, I'm so happy! I met new friends with the same love for Hello Project and PINK CRES, I met PINK CRES, not just meet, but was able to talk with them for a while, and took photos with them! ah I'm so happy! I hope they consider coming back for another live >< hopefully longer!
