High Mountain Makeup Gig

Okay, so, I would like to give a brief story behind these Cordilleran beauties. Our photography group La Trinidad Shutterbugs came up with a hiking event at Mt. Jumbo, Tawang, La Trinidad, Benguet. Last September 8, Saturday, we gathered at our town's municipal hall at 3:30 am and departed at 4am. (Yeah that early and it was still dark.) We started to walk around 4:30am and arrived at the top quarter past 5am. We had to be this early to catch the sunrise. And so yeah. We took sunrise photos, our native Cordilleran beauty theme and some behind the scenes apparently.

It was so windy and the sun was very bright. Some of our companions were already taking their own shots while I dolled up the models. I had no decent makeup BTS so just carefully look at me at the background of these photos. Haha!

This is a bit unusual, a makeup session high up on top of the mountains?! Ha ha! It was so windy and the sun was super bright glaring in front of my eyes. We had no decent tables or even a chair. Hehe. But who would want to carry those stuffs all the way up?

And here are my lovely models. This is my first take on photography. Thanks to my kind friends teaching me. Hair, makeup, and photos all done by me. Wardbrobe is from Mariz and Cysar.

You can view more of them in our facebook page:


And the beautiful overlooking scenery from atop Mt Jumbo. Our hometown La Trinidad, where all those sweet strawberry products come from. Photo taken by Photograph Master Remi Roque.

Some BTS pics while going down the mountain.

I definitely enjoyed our hike and activity up there. The waking up at dawn and hike while it's still dark and cold was all worth it. Outdoor activities like this one is very stress relieving and healthy to the mind, soul and body. It's great to have fun under the sun once in awhile. I hope you enjoyed reading and viewing this post as I had while writing this up.

Until next post. ^_^

My friend and highschool batchmate is a USANA member and gave me samples of one of their skin care line product- Sense Beautiful Science. She gave them for free for me to try it out and make a review about it. Below are the set of products sample packs I received.
She gave me 3 packs of the sample sets.

Each of the sample pack contains a manual instruction insert and 5 sachets of each of the basic sets of the product line. First from the top Gentle Daily Cleanser, Hydrating Toner, Daytime Protective Emulsion, Perfecting Essence and Eye Nourisher. Each sachet contains 2ml.

A closer look.

Quick Review: Mistine Cosmetics Thailand

Mistine is a direct selling cosmetics company from Thailand. It is my first time to hear and try this brand when I came here in Cambodia. Mistine is very similar with Avon where in they have a wide range of products not only for beauty concerns but also for health and home and lifestyle.
I have seen independent sellers for this brand on facebook but they were mostly for pre-order basis as they will still be coming from Thailand. I had tried posting orders from one famous online shop but didn't get good results as they had me waiting but nadda. Nothing came. And then finally, I found a visible and tangible cosmetics shop that sells Mistine items-----> Lum Orng Cosmetic Online Shop. I went ahead to look for the address. As soon as I entered the shop, a lady with a warm smile welcomed me. Chovy, Lum Orng's sister (owner of the shop), showed me all the items and let me try them all with the testers. Since then, I have been a regular customer of theirs because they're custo…
