OOTD#9 From Paris With Love

Hi, I’m back! I’ve been on hiatus from blogging and it took me a month and half to actually write again. I won’t delve on the details but all I can say is, I was all because of work. I missed my blog 😦 I missed writing. And most of all I missed new friends (fellow bloggers,readers,drifters) I met here on the net. But now I’m back, I’m so excited to write again!

On to my Outfit of the Day. My look is Parisian-inspired.

I am a huge lover of anything French. From the movies and books I’ve encountered, I do believe there is something romantic about Paris. I am at awe on how rich French culture is: food, places, films, music and fashion. France is on top of my “places-to-visit” list.

Wearing simple pieces helped channeling my inner Parisian chic. ❤

Where I wore this? On a night out with new friends. 🙂


These girls are so much fun to hang out with. We lived together for a month and I guess we clicked because of similar interests and personality. Plus, they are all nice!


Thanks to this sweet girl who shot most of my ootd pictures. Hi Jham! Mwaaah :*

That’s all and see you on my next post! Au revoir, mon ami!

from paris with love,

Blindfold Makeup Challenge with TediousGlutton

blindfold makeup challenge 1

Hello everyone! I want to introduce you my very best friend in the whole wide world. His name is Chris and we’ve been together since our elementary school days. We’ve been through a lot but most of it were happy and hilarious unforgettable stuff. I had to admit I haven’t been the ‘best’ best friend for him. There was a time where we didn’t see nor hear from each other for years and it was my fault. But this guy is the best, I don’t have a single bad memory from him.  I had the pleasure of meeting his family too, they are really nice and very welcoming especially when I come over his house. I’m very lucky to be his friend 🙂

So my best friend just started his Youtube career this year, I’ve been helping him out from the beginning. His videos are about vlogs of his life, challenges and talks. He is really hilarious. Please check out his channel TediousGlutton and give him some love!!!

For his next video, I was invited to shoot with him to do the Blindfold Makeup Challenge. I was so excited but apprehensive at the same time. It was my first time to be featured in Youtube. Lucky for my best friend he was somewhat used to it. When we filmed the video I had fun and kept on laughing. The challenge was so crazy. We had to do each other’s makeup while blindfolded. You guys have to see what happens next!

Lipstick of the Day: Wet N Wild MegaLast in Purty Persimmon

Hi lipstick junkies!!!

Here’s another Wet N’ Wild MegaLast lipstick. I really can’t get enough of them. I plan to get more of these of different shades of nude, peach and plum. They’re seriously great and very pigmented. One thing i don’t like is these lipsticks make your lips dry. I use my Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm before applying the lipstick and it works great.

I’m wearing the shade Purty Persimmon. I already did an in-depth review of this on my previous post Wet N’ Wild MegaLast and MegaShield Lip Colors. Please check that out if you would like to know more about this lipstick.

Swatch on selfie:



What I like

  • durable packaging
  • has 26 shades to choose from
  • has a scent but quite faint
  • decent lasting power
  • super inexpensive
  • Purty Persimmon is a gorgeous shade of red with a tinge of orange
  • creamy and matte (don’t forget to exfoliate your lips or apply lip balm)
  • available anywhere or online

The bad

  • due to the creamy consistency, can be REALLY messy and easily transferable

Roro’s Thoughts:
Of course, I like it. Great shade but I only get to wear it a few times because I prefer the Wet N Wild MegaLast in 24 Carrot Gold. I would definitely love to try other colors.

A 5 /5 lips for me 😀


Have you tried the Wet N Wild MegaLast in Purty Persimmon or in any shade?
Love to hear your thoughts!




LOTD: Subtle Smokey

Hello darlings!

Recently, I have been experimenting on eye shadows: how to apply, blend and match different colors. So far, I’m still bad at it. LOL. But I’m extremely having fun practicing various techniques, playing around with colors and what I mostly could do is a soft smokey eyes.


I used L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in the shade Forever Pink  as a base all over my eye lids. I love this L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow because it is very pigmented and gives a satiny finish when applied on the lids. Plus it lasts all for hours which is great for me since I have an oily/combination skin and would cause my eye shadow to crease. Then for the smokey effect, I simply blended a matte warm brown eye shadow at the outer corner of my eyes to the crease creating a V-shape.


Products used
On my face: VICHY Cream Foundation Natural Finish Up To 12HR in Ivory, Fashion 21 Loose Powder, Nichido Powder Blush in Cool Rum
Eyes: San San Waterproof Eyeliner Pen, Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara, L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in the shade Forever Pink, San San single eyeshadow in Warm Copper Fire
Brows: Nichido Eye Pencil in Bronze Glow
Lips: Maybelline Baby Lips with SPF20 in Relieving Menthol (not shown on picture), Wet N’ Wild MegaLast Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold


That’s all folks!

Have an awesome day, you guys!

Wet N’ Wild MegaLast and MegaShield Lip Colors

Hi ladies!

Just want to share my ‘budding’ collection of Wet N Wild Lipsticks. Lol. I’ve been wanting to buy these lippies for some time now and finally I got my hands on them! They are so inexpensive that I want to collect a lot of them all in different shades. I fell in love the wide array of colors you can choose from plus the pigmentation. I obsessively kept using my Wet N’ Wild lipsticks ever since I got them. I have two MegaLast and one Megashield Lip Color. All of the lipsticks are incredibly pigmented especially the MegaLast ones. Also they are all creamy and glides on smoothly when applied, still I never skip putting on lip balm just to avoid chap lips.


First off are the MegaLast Lip Color line:

Lips take center stage! This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, crème finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips.

Ozokerite, Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, Propytheptyl Caprylate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Mineral Oil, Myristyl Lactate, Bis Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate 2, VP/Elcosene Copolymer, Myristate, Dimethicone Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Neopentyl Glycol, Diethylhexanoate, Polysilicone 6, Cholesteryl Hydroxystearate, BHT, Propylparaben, Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer, Silica, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Allantoin (Comfrey Root), Retinyl Palmitate, Squalane, Ubiquinone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides ( CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 28 (CI 45410), Red 30 (CI 73360), Yellow 6 (CL 15985), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Yellow 5 (CI 11680)

How much and where to buy:
$1.99, malls, online stores: summercharm.com (Phillipines), drugstore.com or walgreens.com

Roro’s thoughts:

The MegaLast Lip Colors are my favorite. The lipsticks are encased in a black plastic tube with a transparent cap that has the name of the product stamped on it. The shade and number is both indicated at the bottom of the tube. The packaging is actually nice, I just hope the durability is strong enough to withstand my abuse and clumsiness 🙂

The colors are bright and vibrant plus they are available in so many different shades. The product is quite creamy and has a matte finish. The only bad thing about the creamy consistency is that it tends to smear on the container or the cap making the tube messy. The lasting power is quite decent, doesn’t actually lasts for 4 hours, which I don’t mind at all. Has mild odor though nothing too disturbing.

Purty Persimmon would appear as a reddish shade but it has an orange undertone (like the persimmon, lol).  I like how fresh and bright I look using this lipstick alone and with natural look or less makeup. This shade is great to wear for a night out and the color actually appears brighter (kind of like mild neon) in real life than in pictures. I like to wear this as a pop of color when I go all black with my clothes or as a substitute for red lippies. The 24 Carrot Gold may look like the same color as Purty Persimmon on the lip swatches above but it’s actually a more tone-down/ subtle shade than the latter. This shade has a coral tinge (not too bright) plus the color does remind me of carrots 😀 I find this great to wear both day and night. I love both shades. Can’t wait to try the others!

And the MegaShield Lip Color SPF15:

Color, comfort, and care! Luxurious color delivers hours of sheer-to-moderate coverage that glides on buttery-soft for a smooth, moist-looking pout. Lips are pampered with Vitamin E, Amino Acids, Avocado Oil, and Rice Bran Oil that moisturize and condition for silky, soft comfort. And with SPF 15, lips are cared for and protected from harmful UVB rays.

Active Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%), Oxybenzone (2%)
Inactive Ingredients: Ozokerite, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Octyldodecanol, Bis Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate 2, Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Tridecyl Stearate, Propylheptyl Caprylate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Microcrystalline Wax, Polysilicone 6, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Germ Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Alumina, Stearic Acid, May Contain (+/-):, Carmine (CI 75470), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica, Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410), Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Yellow 6 Lake (CI 15985), Zinc Oxide (CI 77497)

Roro’s thoughts:
The MegaShield Lip Color has SPF15 which I absolutely like. It is contained in a black plastic tube with ridges at the side and a transparent cap that has the name of the product. Like the MegaLast Lip Colors both shade and number can be seen at the bottom of the tube. Durability of the packaging is also decent like the MegaLast ones.

It also has a creamy consistency and yet again an ugly part of the lipstick because it easily smudges. Also had mild scent to it but not too strong. The lasting power is least impressive than the MegaLast Lip Colors. I discovered that after 3 hours the lipstick faded although faint traces of it can be seen.

I only have the shade It’s A Girl and I pretty much like it. It is a lovely baby pink shade. This color is something you can wear day or night and can be use everyday. I find myself wearing this often during the day because of the SPF and the color makes my skin appear quite vibrant. This is definitely a go-to lipstick for me.

LOTD: Bronze Eye it out!

Hey ladies!

I saw a gorgeous image of Emily Blunt’s makeup look during the 2012 Gotham Awards. She was sporting a bronze eye makeup, a subtle color on the cheeks and nude lips. She looks like a goddess with that golden hair, classy modern dress and simple accessories. Isn’t she lovely? I simply love her!

emily-blunt-makeup-2012-gotham-awardssource: makeupforlife.net

I attempted to create my own version of the eye makeup inspired by Emily Blunt’s.

Snapshot of my eye makeup look, nothing too complicated cause I’m still learning how to do my own makeup 😀

amakeup products used

First, I applied primer onto my lids. Then after applying primer, I took a bronze eye pencil, spreading it gently all over my lids. I like this eye pencil because it’s creamy and doesn’t fade for a long time. Using an ivory colored eyeshadow, I dabbed it on the center of my lids also at the inner corner of my eyes, near my bottom water line and the brow bone for a brightening effect. Then I lined my eyes and added two coats of mascara. For the face, I just put on my usual everyday makeup products and swapped blush for contour. Finally, instead of Emily’s pretty nude lips, I opted a fancy red lippie.

Well, the finished look is nowhere near what Emily Blunt was wearing. I still have a lot of makeup learning to do! But then again, this was a ‘makeup inspired’ anyway. Plus, I had fun with playing around with makeup!!!

Practice, practice, practice!

Beauty Haul

Hi Ladies!!

Wow, I’ve been gone for two weeks! And I totally broke my rule to at least publish blog post/s every week. Well, something came up so I had to deal with it and I admit, I got a little distracted. But now I’m back, HELLO BLOGOSPHERE, I missed YOU! 😀

I have a huge haul to share to you today ladies! I bought some local products and a lot of goodies from my mom.

What I mostly got were sachets/free samples from different beauty and cosmetic brands. I got serums, foundations, skin care products, scent and perfumes, lipsticks, hair products and facial masks. If you had used or is currently using any of these products, please let me know what you think about them!

1La Roche-Posay, Biotherm, Lise Water, Prevage, VICHY, Elizabeth Arden, Giorgio Armani, Anabelle Cosmetics, Cliniderm, NeoStrata, L’oreal, Wet n’ Wild, Diamonds Collection, HBC San San, Aido 


I’m so excited to try them all!

I also got a new perfume, Diamonds Collection: Jessica Eau de Parfum, a version of Jennifer Aniston.

I guess this was a Jennifer Aniston Perfume for Women-inspired scent where the design house created a different version of the original one. This was way cheaper than the Jennifer Aniston Perfume for Women. I really can’t describe the scent but I assure you it smells so feminine and ladylike. The name of the perfume, Jessica, totally suits the scent. Not my favorite though, I still prefer my Estee Lauder  or Bath & Body Works than this.

I could say that the highlight of this haul for me was the Wet n’ Wild Lipsticks.


I was so overjoyed when I saw the lippies. Finally! I have my first Wet n’ Wild lipsticks! I can’t even describe you my excitement once I had my hands on these babies. I always wanted to buy one but they’re actually quite hard to acquire especially here in my hometown. Buying it online was the easiest way to have them but I have a love/hate relationship with online shopping. I became cautious and hesitant in buying things online except from few trusted sites which services are guaranteed.

1Just look how crazy pigmented and bright they are! Can’t wait to try them out 😛

Big thanks to my mom! She’s the best 😀

I also bought few makeup products from local brands.

7aI’ve read a lot of great Pinay reviews regarding the San San Single Eyeshadow and the very affordable price was enough to lure me into buying them. 8a

I was impressed, albeit the affordability and look how pigmented they are! I think there are about 20 different shades available. I’ll go buy them all, soon 🙂

I also got a L’oreal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in Forever Pink which is a very beautiful, pigmented, iridescent pink. It is a bit too shimmery for me, nevertheless, I’m so excited to try this one especially that it claims the color would last for 24hrs, so that is a must-try and experiment. It is also available in other gorgeous shades that everyone should dare try. c

That’s about it! Now, it is time for me to get updated on what’s going on the blogosphere, answer some emails, read comments and bunch of blogs I missed since my AWOL. That plus a cup of coffee = a very relaxing way to spend time 🙂 Massive thanks to those who had time to roam around my blog and for giving me some love! Be safe and stay fabulous always!




Lipstick of the Day: Revlon Super Lustrous™ Matte Lipstick in 011 Stormy Pink


Product Details:

Ultra-creamy saturated lip color that delivers beautiful, lightweight matte color without any dryness, caking or fading.

  • Straight from the Runway shades.
  • Beautifully rich matte color glides effortlessly across lips.
  • Suede-like, cushiony feel and with maximum color impact.
  • Beautifully rich shades from nude to deepest berry.

Made in the USA


The lipstick comes in a sleek, black tube with a clear ‘window’ on top of the cap where you can see its color as well the shade detail at the bottom of the tube. As for its durability, you can expect it wouldn’t break easily despite how many times you drop the lipstick.

1Mine has a little sticker on the side of the tube with detailed info about the lipstick (ingredients, weight, bar code, etc).

The Revlon lipstick contains 4.2 g and the shade that I have is 011 Stormy pink. The color is kind of a bright baby pink with slight purple undertone which I find it a very lovely shade. It is available in different pretty colors. I like the fact that it doesn’t have a pungent smell (only subtle) as some of the lip products I had.


I find the consistency of the Revlon lipstick quite smooth and it glides on the lips easily. But my problem with it is the product is not very pigmented and I have to reapply quite a few times because the color appears sheer on my lips when applied once or even twice. Also, since it’s a matte lipstick make sure you put on lip balm before you apply it otherwise your lips would appear dry and the creases on it would be visible.

This is how it looks like on my lips. I really like the color despite its sheer pigmentation and the need to apply repeatedly for the desired color.

6Excuse me for how I look, I’m having an amazing bad hair day today. 😀

When the product is smudge, it doesn’t come off that easily plus it would stay put on the lips, although the color would appear faint once smudged. The effect is also the same when you eat or drink. Regarding if it lasts for hours, it doesn’t stay too long and only for about 3 hours, which is already pretty decent for me.

The Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick costs  $7-8 but Drugstore.com sells it 20% off. If you’re also a budget diva like me, you should look online for cheaper deals. If you’re in the Philippines, this can also be bought in any malls or SM Department Stores and Watsons. I got mine from my mom as well as my other high-end lipsticks like the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick.


The good

  • durable packaging
  • has great shades to choose from
  • doesn’t have foul chemical smell
  • smooth and matte
  • doesn’t smudge easily
  • decent lasting power
  • cheaper when bought online

The bad

  • can be drying on lips
  • to be applied many times to get the right color
  • expensive to me

Roro’s thoughts

This is my first Revlon lipstick and I kind of like it but just not my favorite one. The shade is gorgeous despite the need to apply a few times to get the color I wanted. And I also have to remember to condition my lips before applying the it. I would love to try the nude shades and the berry ones next time.

I give it three and a half lips just cause I love the color!


Have you tried the Revlon Super Lustrous™ Matte Lipsticks?
What are your thoughts on it?

Thanks for reading!



Have a fun bad hair day! 🙂 😀 😉


Lipstick of the Day: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Guest List 012 & new Blog segment


Heyah gorgeous!

I wanna introduce to you something new to on my blog which is the “Lipstick of the day”. On this new segment, you will see the lip products I’ll be using of the day, testing it out and make a mini review about it. Though probably not everyday cause I prefer wearing lip balms to keep my lips hydrated and healthy.

I do like lipsticks because of the wide array of colors its available. And I like playing around with the colors, matching it with my outfit like I’ll go all black with my clothes and add red lips to it. Whenever I go to the mall and see a gorgeous lip color, my hands starts to itch prompting me to buy it even though I didn’t have intention to purchase one thus sacrificing the money for food to a pretty tube of lipstick. Worth it! (and sometimes, probably not)

I’m quite particular when choosing the right color of lipstick; sometimes, I would spend 10 minutes (or more) just to decide what color I really like and whether do I really need it or not. I just get annoyed when the saleslady starts staring and hovering at my back as if I have every intention of shoplifting. DoH! (I have personal space issues, peace 😎 )

Moving on the main topic, the lip product I want tp share today is my Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick. I got this from my mom because she didn’t like the color which I also thought of at first. But thanks to my momma, I got my first high-end make up product. Tee-hee 😀


My first impression on this was, well, I really didn’t have any since this was my first Rimmel lipstick and I’m not sure if we have stores selling it here in the Philippines other than online. I think this is sold for about $6-$7/ P200-300. It has 18 available shades and I think its not related to the Kate Moss line (which shades I love to try one or all!). The label said ‘Lasting Finish Lipstick’ so I was curious to test it out.


Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick

Colour that turns heads! Intense long lasting colour for up to 8 hours wear +25% colour impact! Smooth creamy texture for comfortable wear all day long.

I got the shade 012 Guest List which gives off a soft red color with a slight pink undertone.


I really didn’t like the shade at first especially when I applied it on my lips. It looked barely there to me (or are my lips just naturally pink?) kind of like a lip gloss more than a lipstick. But then when I reapplied it, to get the color I desired, it looked great and actually well pigmented, not an intense color but it does soften up your whole look. It has light shimmer on it which is perfect for me. It is also very creamy and it doesn’t make my lips dry but I’m not sure about the long-lasting claim though. I have to reapply after 3 hours or when I eat or drink.
