Blog #61: Korean Makeup Haul - VDL (Swatch + First Impressions)

Beauties, here's another batch of haul from Korea courtesy of my sister-in-law's friend, Lara. I've been lusting over the VDL + Pantone collection for the past months and been hearing a lot of raves about the Lumilayer Primer Fresh that I've decided to include them in my latest haul.

Blog #59: Korean Makeup Haul - Espoir

Don't you get excited whenever you receive a package you're so looking forward to? In my case, I get super giddy whenever I receive a brand new makeup. Nothing beats seeing  boxes of sealed cosmetics looking up at me from a paper bag or a nice packaging.

Weeks ago, Lara, a good friend of my sister in law, Cath, brought home some lovely haul I asked of her to buy for me during her trip to Korea. Among those are these stunning Espoir goodies.

Blog #53: How To: Althea PH Shopping Guide

Beauties, it comes as no surprise that I'm a K-Beauty addict. Ever since I've been introduced to Korean brands via KPOP, I've turned away from Western cosmetics and swore allegiance to the nation of beauty. And why not? I've noticed a drastic change in my skin over the course of using only Korean make-up and skin care products and I can't be any happier.

Yes, K-Beauty brands has crossed over the Asian market for quite awhile now and Philippines (my country) has been one of the more fortunate countries to house several Korean beauty brands like Etude House, Tony Moly, Laneige and Nature Republic. But being the crazed fanatic that I am, I still yearn for other harder to find brands that are sadly not available here like Hera, Iope, Sulwhasoo, Innisfree and Mamonde.

In comes Althea Philippines. Yes, darlings, Althea Korea already launched its online shopping site dedicated to all the fab Pinays who love to indulge in Korean cosmetics. Introducing Althea Philippines:

Blog #52: Style Tour - Pois Belly & Kids SM Mall of Asia

At six months, my belly is swelling like crazy. Just last month, my baby bump was barely recognizable then the sixth month came in and viola! Baby Katey grew tremendously!  

Along with a bigger tummy and a wilder Katey (especially at night when mommy's about to take her beauty sleep), my dilemma on what to wear followed. My dresses are stretchable but I'm seeking for outfits that'll make me feel comfortable moving around while still looking fab. That's why I was so ecstatic when I got a message saying I was invited to shop at Pois Belly & Kids!
