Meilinda BB Cream Fairy Blink

Meilinda caters to every beauty need from skin care to make up, from head to toe. One product from their makeup line that impressed me is the BB Cream Fairy Blink makeup base. BB creams were then trending because of its moisturizing benefits with fair coverage. Most BB creams I've tried have light to medium coverage. With my flawed and blemished skin, I always needed to mix a bit of my foundation to my bb creams for extra coverage. However, with Meilinda's Fairy Blink BB Cream, it's got great coverage just like foundations do. Although it's a BB cream, the formula is also thicker and concentrated just like liquid foundations.

The Secret Goodnight Mask Cream

I or any other beauty enthusiasts and experts can never stress enough how important skincare is. Prevention to skin problems is the key, treatments and solutions are secondary. Goodnight Brightening Mask by The Secret House can just do both.

Even when the problems are already present, it serves as a healing and brightening agent that erases dark spots and skin blemishes.

Pobling Facial Cleanser Brush

Getting our facial skin squeaky clean before we go to our beauty sleep is as essential as brushing our teeth. Washing with just our bare hands may not completely take all the makeup, oils and dirt off from our face. Thus, Habalan came up with Pobling Pore Sonic Cleanser.
Pobling by Habalan is an effective yet pocket friendly alternative to the well known yet costly Clarisonic cleansing brush. Pobling works with the same concept of sonic vibration cleansing with soft micro bristles that buffs out deep seated dirt, make up residue and oils. Just like other electronic brushes, the head is replaceable and it is powered by Triple A batteries.

A Refreshing Fruit Soap You Must Try: Hataya Passion Fruit Soap

2. Simple Winged Liner: Using the I'm Matte Waterproof Pen Line, create a simple winged liner for that typical Asian eye shape.

3. Smokey Brown: Still using the Water Proof Gel liner in Brown, line upper and lower lids and then smudge it out. Blend and smoke out a brown eyeshadow over it.
