Get that JLo glow with Inglot’s newest collection!

“Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got
I’m still, I’m still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from”

I can’t count how many times this song got stuck in my head back when I was in grade school, plus a lot of other JLo songs we had to dance toback then. Jennifer Lopez is truly an icon, being one of the most popular female artists from the 90s. Plus she so fabulous performing at the recent VMAs!!!

This is also the reason why I got so excited when I learned that the amazing JLo made her first beauty collab with Inglot cosmetics! JLo still has flawless beautiful skin (at 49 years old!!), with a spot on beauty game, so this capsule collection will help you achieve that signature JLo glow.


Inglot launched the 70-piece JLo collection that includes powders to
lipsticks, shadows to eyelashes, bronzers, and highlighters done in full
collaboration with Hollywood A-Lister Jennifer Lopez.

The collection is JLo’s first time to ever collaborate with a brand, and the result is the limited edition of JLo collection
that showcased a shared vision of strong femininity to life and offers women diverse ways to express themselves through beauty. With this collection, Inglot hopes to make the JLo glow become accessible to everyone!


Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara (Review + Event)

It’s here! Benefit’s new gravity defying mascara,
BADgal BANG Mascara just reached Manila and it’s selling like crazy! I’ve watched videoes on youtube showing how the product worked wonders on sparse lashes so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one!

For this post, I’m sharing a short review of the Benefit BADgal BANG mascara, including prices and some details, plus some of the event launch photos.

Benefit BADgal BANG Mascara

Product Details:

  • Creates massive volume without weighing down lashes
  • gravity-defying
    formula contains aero-particles, one of the lightest known materials derived from space technology
  • innovative intense pitch black pigments
    layer easily for bigger and BIGGER impact
  • fuels thickness and strength
    with ProVitamin B5
  • features custom big Slimpact brush streamlined to
    reach root-to-tip, corner-to-corner, and upper and lower lashes
  • smudge-proof and water-resistant
  • dramatic volume, lifting, and lengthening effect
  • Retail Price: Php 1500 for full size (8.5g/0.3oz), and Php 800 for mini (0.14oz)

The best thing I love about this product is definitely the volumizing and lengthening effect. The first time I tried it, I was surprised because not a lot of mascaras tend to hold the curl of my lashes.

As someone who has lashes that point straight, I liked how it helped lift my lashes. Do note though that this may not be a product for everyone.

Pro Tip: Try to get the least amount of product on the wand so you get a light coat of mascara. Like scrape some of the product on the stopper of the mascara tube first before using the mascara on your lashes.

I discovered this was the best way to use the product as the formula is thick and may weigh down most Asian lashes. It is actually perfect for lower lashes though.

and tadaaaaa, big bold lashes you can see, even from outer space!!!!

Pink Lipsticks Fit For Everyone (Giveaway + Review + Swatches)

I got the prettiest package last Valentines’ Day, and it was from Avon!
The beautiful pink lipsticks came in a glass case a la Beast’s enchanted


This year, Avon leads the pink lippie trend with vibrant shades of the color for it’s Avon 2018 pink lipstick collection. Avon believes that there is a pink for every Pinay, for every occasion, mood, and even for the everyday look. They believe that for every moment in a Filipina’s life, there is a shade and finish that will help you conquer it. From soft blushes to energetic pinks, Avon offers swipes of confidence, happiness, and beauty, more than just the usual lipstick shades.

For this post, I’m sharing swatches, prices, and my review of some of the pretty pink shades from both the Avon True Ultra Color and Perfectly Matte lipstick lines.


Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipsticks (Php 399 each)

So far, I really loved swatching the Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipsticks as the formula is long wearing but very creamy and non drying. The color payoff is really good, just one swipe and you get a solid swatch.


L-R: P002 Pure Pink, P003 Electric Pink, P004 Splendidly Fuchsia, P101 Mauve Matters P106, Rose Awakening


Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipstick Swatches


Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipstick – P002 Pure Pink


Pure Pink is on the nude side, so it would be great for everyday wear, a very pretty shade you can wear anytime anywhere.


Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipstick – P003 Electric Pink


Electric Pink is on the neon side, with blue-purple undertones. It’s a shade that really pops, perfect for a night out, or when you’re feeling fun and adventurous!


Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipstick – P004 Splendidly Fuchsia


A deeper pink, it still gives a statement, but in a more subdued way. It gives a bit more punch, and just the right attitude.


Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipstick – P101 Mauve Matters


Out of all the shades I got, this is probably my favorite. it’s a deeper red-pink shade that’s very sophisticated. One shade I’m going to reach for when I want a showstopper.


Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipstick – P106 Rose Awakening


A peachy nude pink, it’s also great for everyday, and great for people with warmer undertones.


Avon True Ultra Color Lipsticks (Php 379 each)

Avon True Color Lipsticks have SPF 15 and Color Reveal technology, which means the color you see on the stick is what you’ll see on your lips. this line is more on the sheen side, so the color payoff isn’t as good as the matte line.

Fuchsia Fever, Pink Dream, and Discovery Pink are the three new shades in this line.


L-R: I06 Sunny Pink, I08 Pink Dream, I11 Fuchsia Fever, I12 Hot Pink, I13 Discovery Pink


Avon True Ultra Color Lipstick Swatches


Avon True Ultra Color Lipstick – I06 Sunny Pink


The coral pink Sunny Pink shade has a satin finish and as is the name, perfect for a sunny day out.


Avon True Ultra Color Lipstick – I08 Pink Dream

It’s a daytime appropriate shade with a subtle pink shimmer


Avon True Ultra Color Lipstick – I11 Fuchsia Fever


Fuchsia Fever is a bright playful shade with deep berry tones and iridescent shimmer. I like the pop it gives without being loud.


Avon True Ultra Color Lipstick – I12 Hot Pink


A bold bright pink with deep purple hue, it’s the shade you want to put on when you’re in meetings with bosses. Sort of saying, “Listen to me”.


Avon True Ultra Color Lipstick – I12 Discovery Pink


Peachy pink and very low key, also great for everyday.


Whichever shade of pink you want or need, Avon has got you covered. Pink is for every Pinay, every step of the way.


Before I forget, I’m also hosting a giveaway on my instagram page.

Easy Fuller Brows with the Benefit Foolproof Brow Powder (Review)

As the recently popular beauty catchphrase goes: Kilay (eyebrow) is life! I don’t really do much to my brows because luckily, I’m blessed with full brows. I usually just put on a brow mascara like to match my brow color with my current haircolor.

Another beauty product I like to use is brow powder, but I haven’t found one that’s long lasting, until I tried the Benefit Foolproof Brow Powder. Usually powder products don’t last as long on the face unless you set it with spray, so I was pleasantly surprised that this did, and sticks to the 12 hour claim.

Product Details:

  • An eyebrow powder for fuller, natural-looking arches
  • Velvety-smooth, 12-hour formula instantly
    adheres to hair & skin; transforms sparse brows into full-looking
    brows; light-to-dark shade mimics the gradual look of natural brows;
    includes blending sponge & spoolie brush; eyebrow-shaped pan makes
    it super easy to apply
  • Perfect for soft, natural brows
  • Retail Price: Php 1500 for a Net.Wt. of 2g

The packaging is consistent with the whole Benefit Brow Collection, featuring magic tricks!

The presentation is unique, with a two toned brow shaped palette. It also comes with a mirror which perfect for on-the-go people like me.

I got the Foolproof Brow Powder in Shade 3, which is equivalent to the medium shade.

It also comes with the dual applicator. it’s a sponge first, then you separate it to reveal a spoolie, then turn it into a dual ended applicator.

How to use:

1. Sweep lighter shade over start of brow to the arch.


2. Sweep darker shade from arch to tail end of brow.

3. Blend blend blend

Then tadaa! You have natural looking fuller brows.

You can compare the right brow with the left one. The right one obviously has the foolproof on.

So there, let me know if you’ve tried it too! I’m loving it so far!

The Benefit Foolproof Brow Powder is currently available in all Benefit Boutiques and popups, and at BeautyMNL, Zalora, and Lazada (Benefit Official Store.)
