10 things I’ve learned in my 30 years

So! Hello, I am Malen. I just turned 30! woot! woot! I haven’t been around for the past few months. I was hibernating. I just didn’t feel like doing anything on this blog, on my channel. I even deleted almost ALL of my Instagram posts and started posting new ones – mainly my drawings. Enough […]

My Top 5 Favorite Filipino Youtubers

Hi guys! I’ve been obsessing over youtubers for years now, but lately, I’ve been spending my most of my time watching my fellow Filipino Youtubers. I am so glad that us Filipinos are slowly going out of our shells and expressing ourselves through video blogging.

I have tried video blogging since 2008! That time, Youtube was just just a video search engine. Although I’ve started early, I change my mind every time and stupidly enough, I do stupid decisions–DELETING EVERYTHING! I started again about last year but for some reasons (which I still need to film…), I stopped and haven’t got the chance to go back yet.

For now, let me share with you my favorite Pinoy/Pinay Youtubers.

The Body Shop Wonderblur | Review

Hi everyone! Today I am reviewing The Body Shop’s Wonderblur™ Youth Skin Smoother.

I have been searching for my perfect primer. I think I found mine when I got this primer. I have big pores (thanks Papa!) and I find it really hard to hide it. I have been using Benefit’s Porefessional for a while now but it’s too pricey for me to keep repurchasing. I was just checking out products from The Body Shop’s Drop of youth line and I was supposed to get their InstaBlur primer when one of their staff told me to try this out.

I love it!

No more promises, promise! :p

Essence Pure Nude Foundation | Review

Oh dear! This blog post is long overdue! It’s been on my drafts for two months now and I am so sorry for slacking. This post is a review on Essence Pure Nude foundation.

I used to not care about Essence foundations until I got this. I never really got to try out their other face products because the color options available here are very limited. I was skeptical about their foundations because before they released this, I always check out the other lines from their counter and it always come out really pink on me.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation | Review

I have been eyeing this foundation since I first saw it on youtube. A lot of beauty gurus I follow loves this and that made me want to try it out. I stayed away from Sephora for a while because I was trying to control my expenses (Hello, adulthood) but this time I wasn’t able to resist. This is the first product I ever tried from Too Faced and I have high expectations.

It was super busy when I got to Sephora because of the holiday and everyone is going GAGA (get it?) over shopping! I was very much focused to get my bottle of Born this way foundation, so I walked directly towards by the Too Faced kiosk and contemplated for about 15 minutes (I am serious). I wanted to get either Warm Beige or Sand, but sadly, only Golden and Caramel was left and there were only two pieces of Golden!

Skincare Haul | Mario Badescu

It’s getting colder in Dubai and that means my skin needs to adjust drastically to the weather. My skin is so weird that it my gets really dry during summer, but during colder season, it turns to combination-dry and gets clogged up easily. I break out more during winter, for some reasons. Because of this, I decided to look for new skin care products to try, then I remembered Mario Badescu.
