Coloring my hair is something I've always wanted to try but was always scared to do it. I honestly am scared of ruining and damaging my hair. I've had a bad experience back when I was in elementary and never really got over it. However, when I discovered Liese Creamy Bubble Hair Color and saw how easy it was to do and how it doesn't fry the hair, I decided to go and finally do it!

Choosing the hair color for me was also challenging simply because I have black, virgin hair and I knew that the color may not appear as much because the canvas is very black. So I chose Milk Tea Brown which is one of the lightest colors from the brand to use. I figured the color should somehow peak through.


Liese Creamy BHC sets itself apart with its unique formula that leaves long-lasting effects through a hassle-free process. With its advanced foam technology, Liese offers Filipinas an easier alternative that still results in even and vibrant colored hair in just three easy steps: (1) Mix the formula in the bottle with the foamer cap, (2) Massage the solution into the hair, and (3) Rinse the solution off after 30 minutes. 


Here is the video. I decided to document the entire process and even catch my initial reaction when I saw the final result.



Here are some photos to show you what Milk Tea Brown looks like on virgin hair:





I was so surprised that my hair felt so smooth and it looked so shiny. I guess I had low expectations simply because it was indeed my first time. But I really like that it looks like the product still took care of my hair and didn't damage it.



Here are some photos using natural light:



The only thing and probably my biggest mistake was I focused the color more on the top and my roots and didn't spread it thoroughly throughout my hair going to the tips. So you'd notice that my tips are darker and blacker than the top of my head. 


Overall it was so easy to do and very newbie friendly. I think just keep my tips and tricks in mind. 1. Protect your skin by using petroleum jelly on the sides of the face, ears and nape. 2. Be sure to spread the product evenly until the tips and not to be heavy handed on the top of the head.


Do I recommend this product? Yes I do. I even gave a box to my younger sister who has never colored her hair but wants to. :)

Liese Creamy BHC offers six color variants, namely Rose Tea Brown; Raspberry Brown; Chestnut Brown; Milk Tea Brown; Milky Beige; and Marshmallow Brown.

If there is one thing we, Filipinos, are known for besides our hospitality, it would probably be our love for food. From deep-fried favorites to local sweets and delicacies, the dining table is never short of one spectacular dish or two.

This love for food also made way for us to experiment on different ingredients and cooking techniques, producing even more mouthwatering dishes. But usually, in our passion to find the dish that would tickle our taste buds, we have forgotten to be more cautious and picky with the ingredients we use. While experimenting on food items sounds fun, it can also become time-consuming, expensive, and unhealthy.

With the right equipment though, you can turn even the simplest of ingredients into a scrumptious—and nutritious—meal. The Sharp Steamwave Oven is a 3-in-1 cooking system that allows you to Steam, Grill, and Reheat.


Using the Steam feature, you can have healthier meals in just a press of a button. The oven is built with a non-steam vent for a hassle and mess-free cooking. Steaming also keeps the food’s nutrients, color, and texture intact for a more appetizing meal. It is also a viable cooking technique for meats like pork and chicken and for some desserts too.

With the Grill option, you can even explore on other great recipes. Whether you’re up for any steaming, grilling, or simply reheating, your dependable kitchen partner is here to help.

Here's a simple recipe to get you started.

Living in a warm tropical country like the Philippines means worrying about your makeup melting and fading at the end of the day. Trust me, I've had my share of makeup fails so I was looking forward to when L'Oreal Makeup will bring the Infallible line to the Philippines. And what do you know, this 2017 may be my lucky year. It's here!!!


Infallible is a full range #neverfail makeup from L'Oreal Makeup Designer/Paris. Infallible answers every modern Filipina's battle cry to fight makeup meltdown with a complete line of long-wearing makeup. 


It was a very interesting launch where we were asked to test the long-wear performance claims of the Infallible line.


Here's a little vlog during the launch:



I got my Infallible makeover when I saw others getting their makeup done and ending up with a "plakadong" makeup! The foundation and powder, when combined, is the bomb!!! It gives really good coverage. I was so impressed!


You know me, I would never say no to swatching the different colors of their lipsticks. The Infallible 10 hour lipstick line has 20 shades. Can you believe it?

Let's go over the products from the range.


 Infallible Pro-Spray and Set Makeup Extender and Setting Spray
P500

Set your makeup to last all day with Infallible Pro-Spray and Set Makeup Extender and Setting Spray. This lightweght, oil-free spray can be applied after makeup over your face, eyes and lips to lock in your whole makeup look. It ensures that your makeup stays fresh and "just-applied" the entire day, and prevents melting, fading and smudging. 

 Infallible Pro-Matte 16hr Powcder
P600

This long-wearing, shine-defying powder creates a perfectly matte finish without looking lat or cakey. It absorbs excess oil and reduces shine on the skin's surface for up to 16 hours. This lightweight pressed powder can be used alone, to set foundation after application r throughout the day for quick touch-ups. It has 6 shades available.

 Infallible 24hour Foundation
P700

The first foundation from L'Oreal Makeup Designer/Paris that promises to fight makeup meltdown and stay fresh all day. Lasting for up to 24 hours, Infallible's lightweight formula gives flawless, full coverage that conceals visible imperfections, and a demi-matte finish with no visible shine. Powered by extreme hold pigments that adhere to skin, and hydrating hyaluron that gives optimum skin comfort, this long-wearing foundation guarantees no makeup meltdown from morning till night. It also has 6 shades to match Filipina skin tones.

 Infallible 10hr Lipstick
P500

Introducing a lipstick that lasts from morning coffee to evening wine. Bid adieu to makeup fails like fading and flaking, and welcome sophisticated, high-impact color that lasts all day with the new Infallible 10hr Lipstick. Infused with hydrating vitamin e, lipstick stays fresh and vibrant for up to 10 hours, without feeling tacky or dry. Infallible's highly pigmented, creamy formula glides easily on the lips, and applies glossy at first, but eventually sets with a demi-matte finish. t has 20 shades from nudes to reds and pinks.


I fell in love with the foundation right away, guys. After seeing it on the other guests, I just had to try it out and I loved it so much. The powder also helped keep my face matte the entire time.


I wasn't able to join the workout activity that time but I did get my photos taken, ran across the room talking to different people and also ate and drank. 

Here are some photos from the event:






Here is what it looks outside the venue. Better lighting, I suppose. And this was taken after the event, after everything that I did and all the activities I did inside.


Yup, everything looked just about perfect! No retouches needed. FYI, I also changed my lip color. :)


I will be doing a more detailed review on this line because I know a lot of you would want to know if this truly works for our weather. But so far, I'm really impressed! :D I know they currently have an ongoing sale, I suggest you hoard! They're on 50% off!

If you've been following me for awhile now, you would know that I never leave home without a hand sanitizer or a hand spray. I think I got this from my dad. I remember I used to watch him wash his hands like there's no tomorrow. Really. He would lather the soap so much that his hands turn white because of all the foam and he doesn't stop them. Rinsing his hands take forever to finish too. But let's face it, our hands are always dirty. We touch and hold so many different things, then we touch our faces. Imagine all those germs and bacteria going into your skin. Ieewww. So I have become quite OC with my hands too. And when there are times that there is no sink and water available, I turn to my sanitizers.


The newest one I have discovered is Belo Baby Hand Sanitizer that comes in 3 scents; peach, blueberry and green apple. My favorite of the bunch is green apple, that crisp citrusy scent just smells so fresh. It's only P49.75! I got these from Sample Room. I didn't know what to expect at first because some of the products from the line didn't suit Robyn's skin. Good thing Sample Room offers free samples. It's never a waste.

Belo Baby hand sanitizer kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria. Aside from being hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested, it is carefully formulated without harmful ingredients such as parabens, triclosan, chlorine, formaldehyde, and other common allergens. It is 100% safe and gentle! Moreover, it has glycerin that moisturizes skin, and an ultra-mild fragrance that leaves skin fresh.


Now that I have an active 4 year old, she holds and touches just about everything. What's worse is that she unconsciously puts her hand in her mouth, something my husband and I are training her not to do. It has become a problem and she actually got sick because of it, so taking extra precaution is the best thing to do.

After trying out the Belo Baby sanitizer myself and finding that it's not drying to the skin at all. It was a no brainer that I would use it for Robyn as well. I like that it's formulated without harmful ingredients and chemicals because we want nothing but good things for our kids.

The scent lingers a bit though which I'm not a big fan of. I like the green apple scent, yes, but I would have preferred if it's a little lighter simply because my husband doesn't like cologne scents. My daughter, on the other hand, loves it. She would even ask me for the spray and she'd want to spray her hands herself.


I've also used this product to sanitize her things, the things that she usually grabs. And her toys actually look cleaner! I simply spritz some on her toys and wipe it with a clean towel. And well because of the scent, it's just more fun that Robyn actually enjoys helping me clean her things.

If you are or not yet a mom, I would still suggest for you to try this product out. As I've said, this is also what I use on my hands too. Remember, there's always a baby in us. :)

Confidence is one thing that everyone should have but in reality, there are people who struggle with their confidence. I myself have always thought that there are things I'm just not good at. I shy away and sometimes feel insecure when I think about it. So what happens is I usually set those things aside and focus on the ones I'm already familiar and comfortable with. However, I learned to realize that I cannot hinder myself from learning and growing.

Maybelline New York's motto, Make It Happen, reminds us to always believe in ourselves and to be active and reach our goals and dreams.


One thing I have struggled with was my ability to share my emotions. I thought that showing your true feelings is a sign of weakness and I didn't want to look weak. However, I learned to trust my gut, do more and try. I started vlogging. I started sharing a more personal side of me to my audience. I have been blogging for almost 10 years and this was the next step for me. And it looked like my audience appreciated it.


I overcame that fear and this way, I am able to show the true me, the real me. I made it happen one vlog at a time. :)

Another lady who made it happen? None other than Manila’s IT-girl and Maybelline girl Liza Soberano, who surprised her fans in an exclusive meet-and-greet activity at SM North EDSA by disguising herself as a Maybelline beauty advisor.

During the #MakeItHappenwithLiza event, Liza gracefully entertained and interacted with unsuspecting customers who were browsing the Maybelline counter while waiting for her on stage. Liza took on the role of being a Maybelline Beauty Advisor, allowing her to face customers, give them beauty advices, and recommend the right Maybelline products perfect for their needs. Two lucky girls where given the opportunity to know the perfect confidence booster straight from Liza herself. 


When asked about her experience as a Maybelline Beauty Advisor, Liza shared, “It was actually really fun! I loved it most when I gave beauty advices to the customers. It was such an empowering feeling! It truly validates how much Maybelline helps Filipinas to be empowered through beauty.” She added, "First, to be empowered means to feel confident and comfortable with who you are. And how to do that? Acknowledge your flaws and improve from there, some little help from a good set of people around you would help heaps, and, of course, a dash of makeup wouldn’t hurt!” Liza then shared one of her Maybelline favorites – “My personal favorite is Maybelline’s Clearsmooth All in One powder foundation because it gives me that flawless, shine-free, natural makeup look that’s perfect for everyday use. For example, ako, when I go off-cam, it gives me the boost of confidence I need kahit na parang no-makeup look lang ang peg. I love how it’s super perfect for the Filipina skin so that’s why every Filipina should try it.”


I know a lot of young girls look up to Liza. I find her so beautiful as well. We can all achieve the naturally beautiful look and get shine-free, flawless coverage that’s perfect for the Filipina skin with Clearsmooth All in One Powder Foundation. Created to be 2X lightweight in order to have you look and feel naturally beautiful – it’s as if you’re not wearing makeup! It is available in 4 shades and dermatologically tested.  Be confident as ever, just like Liza, with Clearsmooth All in One!


Let's talk some good news! I'm giving away one lucky follower a limited Liza makeup pouch and Clearsmooth All in One Powder!

Fierce. A word that is used to describe strength and confidence. Now it's so easy to look fierce and have a fierce look to go with it. Maybelline just launched their newest eyeliner to help achieve that fierce look with one easy stroke. It's the new Maybelline Hyperink Liquid Liner.


A bold lined eye says it all, right? It's so easy to use that you can make a soft wing for daytime and really fierce it up by creating a dramatic winged line for the night!


Hyperink's superior formula guarantees all-day, smudgeproof wear. There's no need to stress about your liner fading or making a mess at the end of the day. It stays on all day and night.


It has a flexi-cushion tip that gives extreme control as compared to the usual eyeliner brushes. The ink finishes in film-like format that makes it easy to remove at the end of the day.


The Maybelline team was so excited to launch this product because they know how important a good liner is to any makeup look. Without liner, the makeup just looks blah.


Jigs Mayuga, expert makeup artist of the Philippines, was present to demonstrate how easy it is to use the Hyperink Liquid Liner and he created 3 different looks from soft to sexy fierce, perfect for all makeup junkies.



 Here's what I look like without any liner. Simple? Normal?


And here's what it looks after using the Hyperink Liquid Liner. Totally fierced it up!



 I LIKE:
  • easy to use
  • unique flexi-cushion tip helps me with my precise line
  • really black!
  • very affordable at only P199
  • really stays on, long wearing even with my oily lids
  • dries relatively fast and doesn't smudge afterwards
  • easy to remove


I DON'T LIKE:
  • semi-glossy finish. I prefer my eyeliner to be matte.
  • dries relatively fast. You have to work quick.



I personally still prefer matte eyeliners, so I still like my Maybelline Hypersharp Power Black than the Hyperink Liquid Liner, for that reason. Also because it has a different tip/brush, it takes a little bit of getting used to if you're not very familiar with that type of tip. But after mastering it, it's easy enough to use as one stroke is so pigmented already!


Here's my vlog that day:
