Too Cool For School Art Class Lip Crayon in Orange

I know it's not exactly the season to wear orange on my lips, but when I entered the Too Cool For School store at Myeong Dong in Seoul, South Korea, this is the first thing I've reached for. Really cute right? Reminds me of Crayola crayons haha.

This is not even included in my to-buy list. I was actually going for the famous pumpkin sleeping pack, however I was dismayed that there was no ongoing sale or discount haha so I ventured to cheaper thrills such as a lippie.

South Korea experience + Makeup and Skincare haul

Hello everyone!

I have awakened from my deep Korean slumber. Haha. May I just say that South Korea is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. The transportation system is fast, convenient and efficient, even for noobs like me who have no sense of direction. Koreans were extremely helpful even if some of them had a hard time communicating with us in English. We resorted to gestures, guessing and them translating through online dictionaries and translation apps (ang bait lang diba? they could have just said they don't speak English but they are so kind to stop and help. Thank you!!).

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation

I have a new favorite!

While we are welcoming the "Hanging Amihan" with the barrage of Christmas jingles this season, it cannot be denied that the sun shines like it is summer. Grabe lang ang init! I need a super foundation that will last on me from morning until spontaneous dinner reunions! Liquid foundations usually give me oily T-zone after a few hours from application despite setting my makeup with powder. So I had to scout for a foundation which looks natural and yet, is built to last. In other words, a cream or liquid foundation formulated for oily skin. 

Tarte's Amazonian Clay line (eyeshadow and blush) is quite a hit for me and my oily skin. And their foundation is no exception.

Roadtesting the Much-Raved UBER Manila Experience in the Philippines

I downloaded the UBER app as soon as I’ve heard of it earlier this year. However, I didn’t get to try it until this October (amidst the brouhaha with the LTFRB).
