When I try a new brand, something I don’t read much about, I usually go for the cleansers first. I want to be careful because I had some not so lovely experiences with clogged pores and breakouts after testing skincare. Of course, sometimes I’d dive nose deep into the serums (like the Luna sleeping oil… Read more »
Hey beautiful people, how has your week been? I feel like time passes by a little too quickly when I have time to look back, but some days are so stressful, they feel so long. I’m still trying to get used to the new schedule. Chloe has to be at school by 7am (so friggin… Read more »
It’s been a while since I used my Lorac Pro palette. I remember all the raves online, and I hunted it down, paid premium for it. And after a few uses, I went on to newer shinier things. I’m glad I stuck to this stash shopping series, because it reminds me of the gems hidden… Read more »
Good morning! I love dark lips and I cannot lie. It’s not something I wear every day, but whenever I could, I would. It’s strange, because for some unknown reason, I’m drawn to them, I LOVE THEM! There was a time when I’d only wear nude lipsticks, when I feared even just a red lip. Look… Read more »
I’ve changed the title many times, saved drafts I deleted and also stared at the screen for hours. I just don’t know what to write. I do know however, that I need to say something about 2016. What a year it has been! It’s close to 5pm now, kids are watching Totoro on TV, and… Read more »
I came back from a short holiday a couple of weeks ago, and thought I’d show you what I took with me. We spent one week away from home, 5 days in Hong Kong. The weather there was mildly cool, not too dry, not too humid. In other words, it was the perfect weather. I… Read more »
As promised a few days ago, here are some quick thoughts on Dior’s holiday collection this year, and some swatches. I got these before I left for Hong Kong, and after getting back, kids got sick one after the other, so I only managed to take photos yesterday. I posted the… Read more »
Hello beautiful people! I’m back! Well, for this post that is. I plan to write a few more posts for this month so I’ll be around for a little while. I wanted to be back earlier, but kids took turn to get sick. Ashton just had a bout of fever, and he’s only starting to… Read more »
It’s been 3 weeks since my last post. I’m still getting emails from you guys and you have no idea how touched I am. My grandfather passed away a few days after that last post. There was one day when he was very alert, so close to being normal, but 2 days later, he left… Read more »
Is it the end of the month already? I didn’t realize it until I saw the title of this post in the draft. I’ve been postponing all my ‘planned’ posts because I’ve just been really uninspired to talk about skincare and makeup lately. My grandfather is in the hospital now, with a tube down his… Read more »

Is Lash King really the King of Mascaras?
Lash King. That’s quite a big name. I wonder if Dowager of Mascaras can beat that 😉 This is my first Japanese brand mascara and I remember some of you recommending this mascara to me too. So when this landed on my table, I was of course excited to try. Naturally, my expectation is for… Read more »
Prep Your Skin with Dior Radiant Base for Dewy Skin
Do liquid foundations sometimes just sit on your skin and no matter how you buff it in, it just refuses to blend into the skin? Do powder foundations make you look all cakey and well, powdery? Do foundations look patchy and especially oily around your T-zone by midday? I experienced all 3 before, and Dior… Read more »
