Whenever I think about Mariah Carey, the first thing that comes into my mind is DIVA. So its really no surprise that OPI gives her a line that's called "Liquid Sand". This is a new variant from OPI which I believe would be coming out more in their collections.


I've been looking for an inexpensive heat protectant product, and luckily I stumbled upon the Prostyle Fuwarie End Curling Mist while strolling around Beauty Bar!

Korea Post #3: (Must-See Places!) Nami Island

ll be sharing about our trip to Nami Island, which is located outside of Seoul. We had to take a train (different from the subway system, sorry but I forgot the place where we took this, but its the nearest train station from Myeongdong).


Having dark brows and light hair has always been a problem for me. I have always tried to put a little hair dye on my brows (which I do NOT recommend for anyone to do because this may cause severe skin irritation OR burn your skin) to lighten them up, but it hasn't worked.


I finally tried the Sweet Orange shade of the Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring! Its a brighter shade compared to the Natural Brown, and makes your hair tons lighter.

A Visit to Moonleaf Tea Shop!

With the milk craze still on its high season here in Manila, its no wonder a lot of tea shops have been spurting all over the city. One particular tea shop that friends have been highly recommending is the Moon Leaf Tea Shop, which is conveniently (well, not really for me) located in Quezon City.

Like all other tea shops, Moonleaf also offers the usual milk tea with pearls. I had the Wintermelon Milk Tea (P75) (with less pearls as my preference).

I personally loved it! Very very yummy and definitely hits that milk tea craving. But it was a bit on the sweet side, I'm not sure if they have a sweetness preference scale because they didn't ask me.

Unlike other milk tea shops, they only have one size. The drinks are also a lot cheaper. When I got there, there was a long queue of students waiting to buy their milk teas! The drinks were served quickly but they don't call your name immediately. The branch in Katipunan is only a small kiosk where you order your drink from the outside. Maybe they should keep it air-conditioned because the line gets too long?

So now on my milk tea scale, here are the current players:
1st- Ersao (for being the cheapest and most satisfying, especially when you pair it with their crunchy squid and rice--suuuuhrap!)
2nd- Happy Lemon (really highest for me because I haven't tried any drink of theirs that was bad, well we'll see!)
3rd- Cha Time! (review on this next time when I bring a camera)
4th- Moonleaf
5th- Serenitea (been served by watered down milk tea whenever I order)

I do highly recommend giving this tea shop a visit!

Moonleaf Tea Shop has branches in Esteban Abada Street near Katipunan Ave., and also in Maginhawa Street in the UP Village.

Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner Review

The search for the next perfect liquid eyeliner is on: I've been eyeing this one for quite some time because it looks similar to my HG eyeliner (the much famed Clio Kill Black which I've reviewed here). It has a brush tip and the thickness of the pen is just right. Plus its in pen form!

I have to say that when I swatched this in the store, it turned out fine which is why I still bought it. I must've not followed the instructions correctly because I can't seem to use this now. :((

What Majolica Majorca says:
Deep, dense, bold jet black! Eye line emphasized -- no smudging, no fading. BK 999.
Black base and colored pearl: Shimmering!
For all of you girls who've purchased this, remember to follow these instructions before using:
1. Before using eyeliner for the first time, pull out the pink stopper mounted between the cap and the eyeliner.

2. Press the cap firmly towards the eyeliner completely until there is no gap. (incomplete closure may result in a leak)

3. Shake well with the cap on (THIS IS WHAT I FORGOT TO DO I HATE MYSEEEELF!:(( ). Remove the cap, gently flatten the edge of the felt-type eyeliner, and turn the dial about 10 times (10 clicks) before using it. 
BEFORE EVERY SUBSEQUENT USE: Shake well with the cap on, remove the cap, and turn the dial about 1 or 2 times before using it.
*In the event of excessive fluid delivery use tissue paper or similar paper to reduce the amount of fluid.
The tip is a light brush that I didn't have trouble controlling. The liner comes out really wet so when you apply it to your lids, you have to let it dry first for a minute or two before you do any eye movements. I usually end up with streaks on my crease which is why I have my cotton buds ready at all times.

The light ones were the initial swatches I made when I rotated the dial for around two times only, it best to wipe the excess first off your hand, I think. But like I said, I opened it wrong which is why I think I'm paying the price now.

My left eye which I successfully applied the liner to.

And...my right eye which isn't quite as successful as the other one.

It takes a lot of practice to get used to using the Perfect Automatic Liner! Whew!

The Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner is available for around P800 at any SM Department store.
