Nature Republic Snail CC Vital Cream (cc cream)

I'm definitely feeling the holiday spirit!

Are you all geared up for Christmas? While I emphasize the need to prepare spiritually such as praying more, giving more and having peace of mind not only this Christmas, but the whole year round, I would be hypocritical if I said that I am not giving attention to how I look this season; after all, this is a season of reunions and pictures!

As far as my makeup is concerned, yes I am beyond tempted to buy yet again. However, I already bought a lot from my recent trip to Korea and I am so satisfied with my purchases! From skincare to makeup… my only regret is not buying more! Haha.

One of my best buys is... 
Nature Republics's Snail CC Vital Cream.

Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner

I've been searching high and low for an eyeliner that is REALLY SMUDGE FREE, aside from being water proof and long lasting. I have been disappointed to the point that I rarely wear eyeliner to avoid embarrassing panda eyes. Or black eye.

I've tried pencil, liquid, gel pot, pencil gel... I was always disappointed. I like Shu Uemura drawing pencil which I think is good but not good enough for my waterline because it still smudges. Not a pretty sight.

So when Japanese cosmetics made waves here in the Philippines, I was a little skeptical despite all the raves because majority of the reviews I've read came from sponsored bloggers (at least in the Philippines). I am not saying anything against sponsored posts but it's my personal choice to read as much from those who bought the product.

I held back until I saw the Kiss Me Heroine Make with its crying cartoon lady. Haha.

New Discovery, Korean Makeup Brand : ONL A Beautiful Moment

This post is not about a famous Korean brand or cult product, but I've been singing praises for it. The brand is ONL, which when I googled, did not show up much in the search results. On some items that I got, the  brand name is  "ONL A Beautiful Moment". Based on little information I've gathered, ‘ONL’ means ‘today’ in Korean and the brand's vision as I surmised is that, ONL makes today a beautiful moment. 

How did I stumble upon this brand? I was strolling around the street leading to Ehwa Woman's University (which I think is the most enchanting place in Seoul, painted in full blast with autumn's colors, energy and vibrancy of college students, minus the influx of crowd in Myeong Dong) when I discovered the 1st ONL store in Seoul.

 Very picturesque, isn't it?
