Palladio Rice Powder

An old and traditional concept that is world renowned and a basic staple for the professional make up artist. It absorbs excess oil, thus maintaining proper pH level on the skin’s mantle.

Rice Powder is the refined starch from rice, known as Oryza Sativa. The powder of rice has been used for centuries in the ancient art of Ayurveda, a holistic healing practice. It is used as a poultice that soothes inflamed acne and skin ulcerations. It has been used by Asian women in their facial makeup and to wash their skin since the 16th century. It is considered an emollient rich skin treatment.
Rice products absorb excess oils, thus maintaining proper pH levels in the skin’s mantle. Use alone, or on top of your favorite Palladio foundation for all-day protection. For extra oily skin, try our Rice Paper Blotting Tissues, as well.
Natural - for any lighter skin tone.
Warm Beige - for darker skin tones.
Palladio is a full line of herbal and vitamin enriched cosmetics, enriched with essential herbs and vitamins such as green tea, chamomile, ginseng, ginko biloba, aloe vera and anti oxidant vitamins to improve skin’s elasticity and combat aging.


This is one of my holy grail products. For me its a multitasker. It can be used as a finishing powder, pressed powder, etc. I found out about it when an aunt gave it to me as a birthday gift. I already consumed 2 of these and i am now using my third one. I use it as a finishing powder after putting concealer on my undereyes and on times i am not on the mood to put on foundation or if i am going to the market or grocery. I just brush it all over my face. 

It comes with a thin sponge, but its useless. Anyway the container contains 17 grams of product which is going to last for a longtime. Aside from the feeling of smoothness and freshness when applied, i also like it because it is affordable, it only costs 325.00 php. It gives this smooth , silky and fresh feeling on my skin when applied. The only thing i dont like about it is its scent. Other than that, its awesome.

2 lucky winners will get that chance to win these lovely items from Jewel Pop Cosmetics

Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick and High Gloss

I find its texture creamy, color is pigmented, very intense when applied and smells nice but i find it a bit strong. This shade makes my skin tone look whiter. I am not really a fan of this kind of brownish-red shade of lipstick but this one i like looks pleasing and not too dark.

Shades i have : AMETHYST AND ROSE

I like rose than amethyst. This reminds me a bit of NARS orgasm's shade and it compliments my skin tone. Its a pinkish peach color with lots of gold shimmer in it. Staying power and shine of this lipgloss is pretty impressive and not sticky. I also like how it smells, like a sweet fruity kind of  scent. I wear this alone and havent tried it on top of a lipstick but it looks gorgeous and i love it.

These ones on the old packaging, Estee Lauder already revamped their packaging this year.

Nichido Minerals Precise Liner

I hate it. Should have used the tester first before purchasing this. It sucks. I even asked my sister to try it but she said the same thing. Their other small thin liner is better even though its cheaper.
Of all the liquid liners ive tried, this is the worst one. Enough said.

Clinique Colour Surge Eyeshadow duo

(in be mine)

The first shade is a a pink/shimmery peachy pink ) that i can wear and i am so loving the color. I dont know but i think pink shadows dont look on good me but this one suits me. The other one is a shimmery chocolate brown shade and both of them are pigmented. They are more on the powdery side and can be a bit flaky when too much is applied. The other thing i liked about it is its staying power. From the name (be mine, i find it cute), the packaging and the quality this one is love love love.

Mary Kay Time wise Lip primer

This thing makes lipstick lasts long and i would say this is one heck of a good product. It also serves as a great base and when applied it is very smooth. It is a bit pricey but its really worth every penny and take note it can also be used as a makeup eraser. I tried it to erase some maskara mistake near my lower lashline using a qtip and it works. It has no scent at all, giving this light feeling on the lips and definitely a must buy because it can really lessen lines on lips.

I find this lip gloss not sticky and very glossy. It smells so nice like apricot mixed with green tea (though it says on its ingredients part that it is made of natural extracts of mango and grape seed, rose hips and apricot kernel) and gives this cooling feeling on my lips. It does not feel heavy and feels comfortable that i even wear this lipgloss when i go to the gym (+eyebrows and no foundation because i dont like heavy cosmetics on my face when i workout because i  sweat a lot)  It is long wearing,makes my lips supple and looks nice on bare lips. I cant say its the best but its one of the best ones ive tried (because of its nonstickyness (theres so such word but whatever i like that term).

EOS Lipbalm Sphere - Summer fruit


Why? Because i was feeling down the other day and when i applied/used it i suddenly felt a bit high, it kinda lifted my mood. I guess its coz of the scent and taste. 

(in Summer fruit)

Scent & taste reminds me of Chupa Chups'  fantasy ball spice girls edition (Yummy lol). 
It is the one with free spice girls stickers. I used to collect those stickers when i was in gradeschool, times where in i save a part of my allowance so i can buy boxes of it because in a box the stickers is not complete and most of it is the same.  

I find it a bit waxy (which is a good thing and thats what im looking for in a lipbalm) and glides on very smoothly. Say hello to moisturized kissable lips. A long lasting lipbalm and currently one of my latest obsessions.

The packaging is so cute and  unique.

Over all the quality, the scent, the packaging, and the texture is fantastic.

Cheap liner and lashes

I went to ever mall in recto last week to renew my nbi clearance and passed by the tiangge area. I remember i saw this liner from a blog i read before so i decided to get it to try it and its really cheap. i got it for 45php plus the design is so cute and those lashes were 25php each pair. I tried the liner its called hang feng. Its consistency is thick and its really black. Not waterproof though. It can be used for eye makeup practice  but i dont recommend it to be used outdoors especially when its hot  It will smudge and run and i dont like the applicator tip. The lashes, They may be cheap but theyre really nice. Reminds me of fake lashes from saizen.  way better than lashes from hbc and watsons (the ones on a small box with no label or brand in it). Im glad i discovered these lashes wuhooo.

(using liquid liner)

Chapstick Ultra 30


I find it very moisturizing like i can use it the whole day, really really works well.  Not sticky,very light, no taste and  the scent of it i really like.  It reminds me of lemon air freshener or lemonade plus it also has a high spf. Truly a great inexpensive  product. Even though my lips is already moisturized and still has lipbalm its hard for me to control not to apply more. Im hooked on this thing its already been a month and  few days.

Clinique long last glosswear


I so love the color of this gloss. i find it very glossy (gives u this HIGH SHINE EFFECT. lol) When im lazy to wear lipstick, i use gloss and this is one of my favorites. I just find it very sticky but i can say its long lasting. When it comes to scent, i dont know if its just my sense of smell but it has no scent at all.

Models Own lipstick- baby pink

Even though i did not win the raffle draw, I got this as a prize from MAKEUPHOLICS for their i love makeupholics creative fansign (there are 3 winners).  Thank you so much miss melanie. 

I just tried this once because i just received this and when i tried it,  its very thick and a bit creamy. Very light pink (i love all shades of pinks) and pigmented.

Excel Paris

(no lipbalm)

(with lipbalm underneath)

Excel lipcream has a paint like texture and it smells a bit like it too. Its super matte and fast drying. Long lasting and hard to remove. This product will not go well on dry lips because it will really show lines therefore lip balm must be applied before putting this on. Waterproof. Looks really good on photos.
