Make up 101: Beginner's Guide to Lip Products


Hello ladies!

Its Wednesday at last! did you know that I love Wednesday? I do! Mainly because its the middle of the week which means I only have two days to wait for the weekend. I know it seems so shallow but admit it that you also feel the same way.

On today's Make up 101 we'll talk about different lip products.

When I was younger, my mom had a wide range of lipsticks in which I only thought that lipsticks are the only product you can put on your lips. As I grew older, I learned about different kinds of lip products that you can alternately use for your lips.

vLog Round up: January 21-28 2013

Here's from my latest tutorial check it out here

Hello again! 

I totally forgot about vLog round up last night! Luckily I remembered to post this. Sometimes my memory is getting low.. I should really drink more memory boosting vitamins up in my system. 

So this I will be posting vLogs from January 21 to 28 for this week. I was really surprised with the response I've been getting with my vLogs especially to those that I know personally because they were surprised how spontaneous I am with my quick thoughts and also my reactions on certain incidents that happen on a day to day basis. 

Product Review: Glysomed Hand Cream


Happy Tuesday ladies! 

Due to the recent cold season that had occurred here in Manila, I've experienced my skin - particularly my hands being drier than ever, I was really not comfortable with it since I really like my hands to be at least supple to touch.

Luckily I was able to purchase this hand cream from ebay a couple of months back. The name of the brand is Glysomed Hand Cream. I would say that I purchased it online just because since during that time I was bored and I was browsing online. Luckily my impulsive buying gave me something that I can really use.

Kpop Friday: All About Infinite

Hello ladies! I'm back! so sorry that Kpop Friday is late again. I have busy a lot so I wasn't able to blog a lot about Kpop.

Okay so the recently concluded Dream Kpop concert was held and I wasn't able to watch it. That's okay since I think there are a lot more concerts this year that I'll be able to watch for sure.

I remember that the first performers were Infinite. So who is this Infinite group by the way?

Organizational tips for your vanity/make up area

Please don't mind the non make up related products in the picture.
I am a self confessed organized mess.  What I mean by that is sometimes I am fine with having my make up stuff all over my vanity area. Believe me I have a lot of products in my vanity.

I have mostly all of the stuff you need from hair to body to the face even for taking care of your feet! I have a lot of stuff that I have in my vanity which gives me the problem of how to store them properly. I'm generally not an OC person when it comes to having my stuff everywhere but there are those times that you just really get the urge to clean up just because. 

I know you do so don't deny! 

So one weekend I decided to clean up my vanity area just to settle everything I have in my vanity area. If you are organizing your stuff as well here are some tips you can do to less or at least make your vanity/make up area more pleasing to the eye.

Sophie Paris Haul


Hello ladies! 

Last December, I was contacted by Sophie Paris Philippines saying that I won the Sophienista package on their event last December 8. I was actually a new member of Sophie Paris so I was quite surprise that I won from their event which I was unable to go since I was not feeling okay that day I remember. 

I was supposed to pick it up last December but due to my busy schedule I wasn't able to do so. Thankfully I was able to pick it up a couple of weeks ago at their main office.

Quite honestly I was only expecting a bag for my prize but I was surprised when I saw its more than just a bag. I got a bag, a pair of shades, wallet, and three tops in small, medium and large. The small one is the blue shirt, the medium one is the black stripped cardigan while the large one is the white shirt with navy blue stripes.

I don't specifically remember the names of these products but as far as I remember these products were from their previous collections. I'm not as sure if they are still available, but if they are I will definitely let you know about it.

Here's the video of the products I got from Sophie Paris Philippines!


Again thank you sooo much Sophie Paris Philippines!

If you want to order any Sophie Paris products you can email me at alicemate1989@gmail.com so we can talk more!

Much Love!

xx Alice

First Impressions: Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 4


Hello my beautiful lovelies! I am currently feeling under the weather again since I didn't get ANY sleep last night. Call me crazy but its all for you my lovelies...you'll find out soon why I didn't sleep again on my vLog.

So enough about that. I would just like to share my latest palette and my first impressions on it. The palette I'm talking about is Urban Decay's Book Of Shadows Vol. 4. I got this as a prize from a giveaway of Kiray08ever on youtube.

I would just clarify that neither she nor the company asked me to do this post. I am really happy and blessed to be able to use this palette. This would definitely be a great addition to my growing number of products that I will be using on my make up gigs.

So basically the Book of Shadows palette is made for you to create looks with these uber pigmented eye shadows even if you are a beginner. This kit consists of a portable speaker, connectors and a small card in which you can scan the code from your phone to redirect you to a how to video on some looks you could do. And since I don't have a smartphone at the moment, I just keep the card inside the kit.


The kit also includes 16 eye shadows that comes in neutrals and some colors. The texture also varies from shimmery to semi shimmery. It also includes the 24/7 waterproof liquid eyeliner, a travel size super curl curling mascara and the popular Urban decay primer potion in travel size form.




With the eye shadow primer itself I was like... 

THANK YOU GOD!

Yes. I am over exaggerating, but by far of all the make up blogs I read around 80-90% of them have this as their holy grail eyeshadow primer. I will try other primers to compare for this in the future.

Now I will show you all the colors of the palette. I actually forgot to do swatches but you'll be able to see those in my next tutorials for sure.


First row (L-R: Blue Bus, Gunmetal, Cobra, Baked)
Blue Bus: Bright blue based purple shade. Frosty finish.
Gunmetal : Dark blue/gray. Shimmer sheen finish.
Cobra :dark cool toned brown that has a green sheen. mostly matte finish.
Baked: Bright copper. Frosty finish.

Second Row (L-R: Bender, Gravity, Lost, Hijack)
Bender: Forest green with a subtle green-gold sheen.
Gravity: Plum tinged shade. frosty finish.
Lost: dark bronze with red undertones. frosty finish.
Hijack: bluish teal with a silver shimmer. Has a frosty-metallic finish

Third Row: (L-R: Midnight Cowgirl, Sin, midnight rodeo, crystal)

Midnight Cowgirl: pale peachy shade with bit of gold sheen. Frosty finish
Sin: Pinkish champagne shade. Frosted finish with a metallic sheen
Midnight Rodeo: sparkly taupe brown shade.
Crystal: has bluish purple gray shade with a bit of a silver sheen.

Fourth Row: (L-R: Bust, Missionary, Skimp, Zephyr)

Bust - Grayish taupe brown shade. Soft frosted finish.
Missionary - soft beige-taupe shade. frosty finish.
Skimp - peach-beige with a pearl finish.
Zephyr - warm white with gold sheen. 

The colors are really easy to match and most of the looks you could do with these are neutrals which is good for everyday use. There were some shades that are powdery but still workable. Even without the primer, these eyeshadows do last for a long time. They are wickedly pigmented but you have to be careful since it may go out of hand if you apply too much on your eyes. 

Overall, I love this palette..why wouldn't I be blogging about it if I don't love it right? haha!

I am actually aiming to purchase the Naked palette. I know I'm so slow with the latest trends but quite honestly I don't like to go with hypes since most of them do flop in the long run. But its a case to case basis so let's just see.. I also have my eye on the Naked quads.. I think they are called Naked Basics or something..I will try to persuade my friend to buy me one in Sephora in Singapore if she will go there this summer.



What do you think about this palette? Have you tried this palette?

I'd love to know! Comment below on the comment box and see you on my next post!

Happy Wednesday!

Much Love!

xx Alice

Product Review: Cuties and Charm's Kiss Beauty Fruit Lip Gloss


Hello lovelies! I am back with a new review~! I'll try to post reviews more since I have tons of new products.

If you girls remember I am not much of a lip gloss fan because I always get teased that I looked like I ate lechon. Its a joke I know but it kinda offends me. Since then I don't really use glossy lipsticks. So for today's review it would be for Cuties and Charm's Kiss Beauty Lip glosses.

Diet Diaries: How to Stick to Your New Year's Resolution



Hello lovelies! 

Its already 2013 and I know that most of you have gained some pounds with all the food that you've eaten through the holiday. Admit it - Its not easy to resist the temptation, but that doesn't mean that you have to feel bad afterwards since that is usually how the body reacts with food.
