First stop is Olay. I was really excited to see the contents of my Sample Room bag and see these products from Olay. I admit I haven't tried any face care products from Olay yet, so I'm excited to try these out.

One of the most recent events I attended was the launch of Heroine Make Jewelry Eye Color. The place was transformed to the very feminine workshop room. Staying true to the persona of the brand as reflected by their brand icon Princess Elisabeth Himeko to educate the women of the world on how to beautify themselves; the highlight of the intimate event was the tutorial and make-up demo conducted by make-up artist and beauty consultant from Japan Sayuri Igarashi

Before the event started, we were able to go around and look at the different products of Heroine Make. I'm actually a fan of their brand. As many of you know, my current favorite mascara is from Heroine Make.

 Selfie with the photobombing Princess Elisabeth Himeko at the back.

I sat beside Genzel who I've done a makeup collaboration with. We spent the whole time chatting! She's such a sweet person! :)

When the program started, I remembered her from the Heroine Make event last year!

Miss Igarashi said: “I am truly happy to have had the chance to do make-up for a number of Filipinas during the event. Filipinas as you know, are known the world-over to have beautiful, healthy skin which is in fact the best canvass for make-up.”

She further said that the products of KISS ME Heroine Make are perfect for the Asian skin and weather where the demand for “all-weather” make-up that withstands the rigors of heat, humidity, rain and sweat are ever increasing.

She proceeded to doing makeup demos. She did a natural daytime look, night time look and even an office look.

I actually appreciated her workshop because I got to learn more about the products. She explained each product she used and how to properly use them. She also told us that Heroine Make products are long lasting so it should last you the whole day even with this humid weather.

She also did a night time look: 

Here's the office look using Pink Amethyst:

As for me, I decided to wear my favorite Heroine Make products that day.

Eyeliners and mascaras are usually the hardest to remove in terms of eye makeup. Those waterproof ones can be a pain in the a%s to remove that sometimes ordinary cleansers aren't enough. So I always use a separate eye makeup remover for my eye makeup. These makeup removers are usually milder to be used on the delicate area such as the eye but tough enough to remove waterproof makeup.

 A powerful oil-free makeup remover that sweeps away the most tenacious eye makeup and mascara without harming delicate skin with Sea Mineral Complex.

One of my most recent finds is H2O+ Aqualibrium Dual Action Eye Makeup Remover. I have been using a very-hard-to-remove-mascara the past couple of months that my current eye makeup remover just isn't enough. After looking at my stash, I found a sample size that I received from Sample Room.

  1. Gentle ingredients help soothe delicate tissue around the eye area as impurities are swept away
  2. Pure water penetrates the surface layers of the skin to nourish and plump, so eyes feel and appear refreshed and rejuvenated
  3. Sea Mineral Complex, a scientifically advanced delivery system ensures vitamins and other vital nutrients are rapidly absorbed at the cellular level

What I LIKE:
  • removes stubborn makeup
  • very mild
  • no strong scent
  • no panda eyes!
  • very easy to use
  • little amount is enough
  • a little pricey at P1330 for 120ml

Here's a little demo:

 Using my very-hard-to-remove mascara
(Please excuse my oily face. It's been a long day.)

 I just shook the bottle and put a few drops on my cleansing wipe.

 Here is a closer view:

This has become my favorite eye makeup remover! It takes me half the time to remove my eye makeup compared to my previous eye makeup removers. Also, no panda eyes! :) Just don't forget to shake well before putting a few drops on cotton pad.

Overall, this is a must have for anybody who wears eye makeup on a regular basis! It makes removing your makeup a breeze! :D
