Blog #51: Cleanse & Refresh - Laneige Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil Review

Beauties, I have a big problem. I wear make-up almost every time I go out. Dirt and pollution cling and clog my pores the moment I step out of the house. This leads to a build up and after the day, may cause irritation and breakouts if unwashed.

But with a lot of beauty products that promise to strip away the impurities and make-up of the day, what can I use that won't strip away the natural moisture of my skin too?

When I emptied my Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Cream, I was considering get the much-raved about Banila Co. Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm. I was set to buy it, was on my way to their Glorietta branch when I was sidetracked while I was at the SM Mall of Asia. I passed by Laneige to check what their new stuff were when their accommodating sales staff sweet-talked me into getting their Laneige Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil.

Blog #50: Who is Pinknomenal? (A Look Back and Ahead)

Hello Beauties! I was thinking very hard what to blog today since my hands are itching to write something, anything. I have a lot of topics lined up that need to be written down but somehow, it came to me in the shower. Why not write about me?

Blog #49: Beauty Tour - Nature Republic SM Mall of Asia

Last Sunday, my husband and I went to the SM Mall of Asia to treat my mother-in-law to a post Mother's Day lunch. While waiting, I decided to scout the mall for a new toner as I've already emptied my Mamonde Rose Water and buying another one will take a month to be delivered. I considered going to Laneige to buy the Clear C Advanced Effector which I've read good reviews on but then decided to check other options.

I came upon this new Korean make-up store that was placed in what used to be Too Cool For School's stall. I was so happy to see EXO Kai and Baekhyun standing inside a brightly-lit store. Nature Republic is already at the SM Mall of Asia! I used to go to their Festival Mall and SM North EDSA branch to buy but now, they're more accessible.

Blog #48: Weekend Grub - Homemade Linguini Alfredo Recipe

The weekend has finally arrived, Beauties! I'm sure most (if not all) of you are so pumped for the two days of relaxing and lounging around. For work from home wives like me, it doesn't make that much difference since I enjoy the perks of staying at home and having quality time with the husband while earning as well.

One of the challenges of being at home all the time is thinking about what meals to prepare everyday. Husband and I take turns in cooking (with him getting most of the turns because he's one hell of a cook) and thinking about different menu for each day is such a task! These past few weeks though I'm specifically craving for cream-based pasta and ever since I tasted Italianni's Truffle Pasta, I just can't take the taste out of my mouth that I've constantly been yapping about it to hubby.

So my mission to cook the ultimate cream-based pasta begins. Since Truffle sauce is too expensive and impractical to make, I made do with the most basic pasta: Alfredo. I''ll be sharing with you my own recipe cooked straight out of our kitchen!

Blog #47: Korean Beauty Tour - Laneige SM Mall of Asia

Hello Beauties! I'm back once again with another beauty tour. Remember last time I went to the SM North EDSA branch of Missha? This time, my feet took me to the Mall of Asia to check the new location of Laneige. Yes, my favorite Korean make-up boutique relocated to the Beauty Section of the largest mall in the Philippines.

Blog #46: What's In My Pouch - Korean Summer Make-up

Hello Beauties! Summer has officially began here in my country and when I mean Summer, it's not the type of season wherein you can lounge all day under the sun because believe me, doing so will get you crispified in no time. I ain't playin' you, heat during Summer time here is no joke. It's like the sun decided to stop by our house and stay there until dinner. Hahaha

Anyway, to welcome the unforgiving Summer heat, I've gathered my fave Summer essentials. This is a collection of make-up that celebrates the colors and festivities of the Sunshine season.

Blog #45: Korean Gradient Lips - Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar

Hello Beauties! By now I guess I've repeated again and again how I'm obsessed with Korean gradient lips. It's been a long trend but until now, I'm still sporting this quite complicated lip trick when I go out. 

Have you tried doing gradient with just ordinary lipsticks? So hard! I tried before and had to redo each time it's become frustrating. So imagine my joy upon finding out that Laneige came out with an innovative, totally ingenious new type of lipstick, the Two Tone Lip Bar!
