L'Oreal Paris False Lash Buterfly Mascara | Faux Cils Papillon Waterproof Mascara

Before I got lash extensions, I met a mascara that exceeded my expectations. I couldn't stop using it just because I found love in it. I won't waste your time any further so meet the mascara that currently takes a huge part in my heart, the L'Oreal False Lash Butterfly Mascara.

It is said to be the No. 1 mascara in Europe and that claim is undoubtedly legit because it has gotten love from the beauty market in all parts of the world. 

The beauty it gives the lashes is caused by the asymmetric built of the butterfly brush. Its shape resembles that of the lash line making it reach the lashes from corner to corner. The comb teeth of it spreads out each and every lash like butterfly wings.

Now off on how it works.

It was love at first use, I tell you. I have the shortest and thinnest lashes but the L'Oreal False Lash Butterfly Mascara made it twice more visible with just one application. Yes, you read that right -- ONE application!

Some product builds up at the roots of the lashes but those just make the lashes appear thicker and with much volume. Let's have a rundown.

I LIKE that it ...
  • has a unique brush that gets into the corner of the lashes and spreads the lashes beautifully.
  • gives volume.
  • lengthens.
  • doesn't clump.
  • dries quick.
  • doesn't smudge.
  • holds the curl the whole day.
  • is affordable for Php695.00.
  • is available all leading stores.

I DON'T LIKE that it ...
  • is hard to remove.

It being very hard to remove is the only thing I don't like about it. Each and every particle of the L'Oreal False Lash Butterfly Mascara is love, if you'll ask me.

After my love affair with my lash extensions, I will sure go back to L'Oreal False Lash Butterfly Mascara for the long and volumized lashes look I have always wanted. Indeed, this mascara has unleashes the beauty of eyes.

Get it now and thank me later.

For my hair color needs, I #TrustOnlyMajirel!

Hair coloring is already a must in my system. I once had it light brown and made it ombre blonde a couple of months after. When I got bored with it, I rushed to a salon had it colored light brown with red undertone and put blonde accents on it. I could go and change the color of my hair every month or every time I feel like to if the health of my crowning glory is not and will not be sacrificed. I noticed that every time I color my hair, it would turn brittle and dry. I wanted to prevent further damages so I decided to just let my hair grow and just cut it when the roots reaches a decent length. But boy, the difference in color of the roots and the tips gross me out, thus, I need to look for a hair coloring brand that would do color my hair and care for it at the same time.

Truth be told, I haven't heard of Majirel before. Actually, whenever I'll have my hair colored in a salon, I don't pay attention to the brand they use on me. I trust them to color my hair without knowing that the brand they use actually has an effect to the health of my crowning glory after the procedure. It was just when I attended the launch of new faces of Majirel that I got to know Majirel and all the goodness it can bring to the hair.

I got a chance to have my hair colored with Majirel in one of the most premier salon in Manila, Frank Provost. I arrived in the salon with the dullest hair one could ever have. The natural color was halfway down the tips and the state was way below normal. I entrusted my crown with Laurent and the rest of his team. Trusting Majirel and Laurent to revive my hair was, so far, one of the best decision I have made.

Since my new work doesn't allow bold and bright hair color, I specifically asked for something that dark that goes lighter when under sunlight. Also, I was advised to get a darker color since, lately, I don't have time to visit the salon for touch ups. Yeah, it wasn't my usual hair color choice but going different wasn't bad after all.

The procedure with Majirel was pretty the same -- color, soak, rinse, blow dry and style. The main difference I felt was the smell and the feel after of Majirel. It doesn't smell off like other hair color and it leaves the hair feeling soft and healthy. Well, I haven't had that same experience with other hair coloring brands. Normally, after coloring, my hair would feel dry and brittle, thus, getting it treated is a must. But with Majirel, my hair needs no treatment after coloring because the trick is done while coloring.

After the waiting game, my hair reached its full glory. Saying that I am satisfies would be an understatement. I wasn't able to take a decent photo of my new hair color because of the lighting but I will update you soon.

It looks black on room lighting but the magic shows when my hair is hit by direct sunlight. It is, so far, the best coloring I have had and getting it done in a premier salon like Frank Provost made the experience even better. I shall come back and next time, it would be brighter and bolder for sure.

Now I vow that for my hair color and care needs, I #TrustOnlyMajirel.

Etude House Skin Note Pore Tightening Hydrogel Mask

I use a facial mask at least once a week and whenever I do, my boyfriend will ask me with all curiosity, "What is that for?" I always try to give him answers he would immediately grasp but apparently, he doesn't seem to get the point of using one. Admit it, there are facial masks that are total waste of money. Good thing, I have a good set of those that really work! 

One of the brand I trust when it comes to facial mask is Etude House. Recently, I got to try their Skin Note Pore Tightening Hydrogel Mask, oh boy, I fell in love. 

Want to know why the Etude House Skin Note Pore Tightening Hydrogel Mask is a hit on my list? Read more!

Forever 21 has been my go-to place whenever I need stylish set of clothes. Last August, Forever 21 launches its Pre-Fall collection! Here are some of the sets worth checking out:


 orever 21 encourages shoppers to “Make a Statement” with the launch of the Pre-Fall 2014 collection. From printed button-ups and fitted skirts to must-have denim in a variety of new fits, the collection features the essential staples any wardrobe needs to create a one-of-a-kind personal style.

The Forever 21 shopper is not afraid of being their authentic selves, using the fashion as a means of expression; stepping out of the crowd, into the spotlight and owning their own style – a message that lies at the forefront of the campaign.

My lash wishes came true with Lash Wishes! + Giveaway

Given the tight schedule I live on an everyday basis (read: work, graduate school, blog, social life, etc.), the time I spend on making myself look presentable for the day is often sacrificed. Lately, I work around my face in under 10 minutes. What can I do with that short time? Define my brows and conceal skin imperfections. That's all. No blush, no eyeliner, no mascara, no lipstick. I know that that kind routine is not enough for someone who wants to look perfectly presentable for the day but that's all the time I can spend for my face. Please don't tell me to wake up earlier than I do now. I can't give up a few minutes of my precious sleep time. I just can't! I had to find a way to look glam, without much effort and time, on the very moment I open my eyes in the morning.

For some reasons, long, thick and curled lashes make the eyes (and the entire face, actually) look beautiful. It is really something I wished I was born with. To get that voluminous fringe of gorgeousness, I use false eyelashes once in a while. But it takes me a minimum of 5 minutes to pop a pair on to my eyes so I scrapped the idea of doing it for everyday. Here comes an awesome idea of getting lash extensions!

I have always wanted to get lash extensions, but hearing a good amount of pros and cons made me think twice. But when I was invited to visit Lash Wishes, I knew it was the perfect time to get myself that voluminous fringe of gorgeousness I have always wanted.

Lash Wishes is a designed eyelash extension studio which aims to make every girl's lash dreams come true with its wide range of high quality lash extensions. From thickness to length, color and even decor, Lash Wishes can practically make every eyelash fantasy come true.

When I was asked what kind of lashes I would get, I went all out. Long, thick, glamorous and curled to be exact. The application took about 45 minutes. It could be too long for people who don't want to just close their eyes and wait for the procedure to finish. For me and those with tired bodies, that 45 minutes of not doing anything with eyes closed was heaven.

After a countless times of lash strands application and drying, my lashes were long, curled and beautiful! I specifically asked for shiny strands to achieve that I-just-applied-mascara effect. Oh, it was love indeed.

And just like that, my face instantly look glamorous. For 2 weeks straight, I went out of the house almost makeup less but looking beautiful. Thanks to these fringe of gorgeousness! I am yet to draft a post on the pros and cons of lash extensions but for now, let me and Lash Wishes make your lash wishes come true. 

I would be giving ONE of you a chance to get a set of 'Classic' Lashes from Lash Wishes. I would be throwing in some other stuff too! This giveaway is open only for those who can visit Lash Wishes in Cinderella, Glorietta 3. Simple ways to join:
