REVIEW: Sophie Magic Cream Blush

I've been on a hunt for a cheek tint that will really stay on me for the whole day. I tried careline's & herbench's lip and cheek stain but with no luck. It was difficult for me to use that product. It's not easy to blend and looks like I have rashes. LOL.

Luckily, I found one that will be my HG cheek stain! It's Sophie Magic Cream Blush. I've been eyeing on this since I read it on a thread on So many raved about it!

It's magic because from white cream it transforms into pink in seconds.


  • very affordable and locally available. For only 70 pesos you can avail this awesome product. Just contact your Sophie dealer. I got mine from my classmate's dormie :)
  • very pigmented
  • stays throughout the day. I did not even re-applied it. amazing.
  • gives you that naturally glow. My guy classmate said that it's just like your cold ( we we're in our A/C classroom that time.LOL)


* I don't have negative to say yet about this product beause it does not fail me yet.

RATING: 5/5! definitely my holy grail! :)

Tell me what you think about this product. Leave a comment or link your review on it if you have one.

DIY: bow rings

I am so addicted to bow right now. Well, I really love bows...and stars! LOL

Recently, I bought bow hair accessories and then I realized I must love bow because I have so many of them. The one thing that I dont have is a bow ring. Ever since I saw Prettyholic wearing one, I began my hunt for a ring like that. :))
Here is a pic of prettyholic wearing her bow ring. My inpiration for this project. :)
Here is my take on them. Hope you like it!


  • pair of scissors
  • satin ribbon
  • leather strap or a ring of your choice ( i used a leather strap I bought at a street at my school. It was only 10 pesos)
  • needle
  • thread


First.fold the ribbon to form a bow. You decide how big the bow will be. I fold mine in 4. Second, sew the middle of the bow. Lastly, attach the bow unto the straps. I sew mine but if you like you can hot glue it. I sew mine for steadier application.

You can now enjoy your DIY ring! :)

goodluck :)

YT Guru for a day: My face routine

So, I saw makeupvideosandmore's holiday contest video and i decided that I should give it a try.

Here's my foundation routine ( if I'm not late for school. LOL)

Start with toning my face with Eskinol Whitening Facial Cleanser.

Followed by priming and moisturizing the skin with Garnier Light Complete. I also use this is an eyeshadow primer. :)

then start applying the foundation. Here I am using Avon matte mouse foundation in Almond
Conceal blemishes and under eye circles. Here, I am using Ever Bilena's Studio Finish Stick Foundation in Miel

Seal it all in with a powder.

On to the blush, I am using Nichido cheek mouse blush in Pink Champagne and on top of it is Nichido Powder Blush in Sunkissed.

On to the eyes, I use shimmer eyeshadow to add sparkle and winged eyeliner for that defined look.
Add whiteyeliner on the water line for that dolly look.

On to the lips, prime lips with lipbalm and add lip color. In here, I used Chapstick Classic and Avon Ultra Colour lipstick in mellow magenta.
The final look....

Lessons learned:
  1. Its not easy to do beauty videos on YT. I salute all beauty gurus out there!
  2. Its hard to edit.LOL
  3. I appreciate beauty gurus more for they put lots of effort to share their knowledge to us.

Here is the video version. Don't laugh okay? its my first time. LOL
