BYS' coolest palette, Highlight palette is like a marriage between Anastasia Sun Glow and Sweet highlighting palette. It's what I've been using daily for highlighting my complexion because it's so easy to use that I can even use my fingers to blend it!
I've always had this dream of studying abroad to enrich my knowledge on the things I am passionate about, especially the creative side. But alas, no time, no resources. Studying abroad can be VERY expensive and sadly, some of the international universities that I wanted to take a chance in either had very high standards or they're just plain expensive overall.

The first time I laid eyes on this palette, my heart almost left out of my chest (figuratively) because of the excitement over the fact that this is my first- ever Tarte eyeshadow palette and it's huge! I definitely had that sudden surge of inspiration when I saw the lovely pans inside the palette.

Late last year, L'Oreal's new Lash Paradise mascara went viral online for its intense volumizing properties at a very affordable price point; a lot have also said that it's a counterpart for Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, which fueled the rave even more.
Last week, Lash Paradise has arrived in the Philippines and I got to try it during the weekend.

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Syracuse 1 review.
FROM: Nars, Central Square, BGC
OTHER LOCATIONS: Available in Nars boutiques; Rustans
In today's edition of Wayne Goss Made Me Buy It (LOL), he influenced me once again to purchase what he dubs as "one of Nars' most amazing foundations", All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. The last Nars foundation I tried was the Firming Foundation and it was a long, long time ago so I don't really remember the general quality of Nars foundations like I do MAC, Bobbi Brown, and Estēe Lauder to name a few, but after trying this, I think all of Nars's foundations are amazing! This is one of the best soft matte, lightweight, long- lasting foundations I have tried!

Nadine has teased us for quite a while with images of her much- awaited collaboration with BYS and about last week, she's finally gave a sneak peek of the actual products (insert shocked emoji here)!
From what we've found, Lustruous features a brow gel, eyeshadow palette, complexion palette, brow pencil lipstick, and gold brushes. You can buy them individually or as a set.
I recently visited their IG page and learned that you can pre-order the products so if your a Nadine-natic, what are you waiting for? Get your hands now on her limited edition collection! Yep, you read that right- it's LE!
I was recently sent a box of this intriguing sheet mask from Korea called Crazy Skin Lifting mask that promises an instant lifting action after just one use. What also got me was it turns the face crusty for a while, which seemed fun to me so I tried it out immediately.
Does this mask really lift the skin after one use? Let's find out.
