[Review] Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base from Etude House

I have have been learning and exploring about makeup ever since I started cosplaying. The world of makeup is so vast! Colors, shades, hues, skin type... Who knew it would be so complicated! However, I like the little discoveries I make in every step. Slow, yes, but I am getting there. 

After attending beauty workshops, I leaned about makeup bases or primers. It claims to make your skin flawless-looking and keeps your makeup in place. Popular cosplayers raved about primers in their blogs, too. So I thought, "Why not just try it out, then?"

Since I like Korean cosmetics, the store that came to mind as I hunt for makeup bases is Etude House. When I went there, the SA happily assisted me. When I asked for a primer that would go best with my oily face and skin color, she recommended that I have the Baby Choux Base in Berry (#02). I trusted her without questions and bought one right away!


Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base in Berry (PhP628.00)
Ah~ So you've noticed that the packaging is so cute, eh? Yep! It does not only look good, it smells good, too! The scent is more like a mixture of fruits, berries and sweet candy. Yum! But oh, don't eat it! 


The product comes in the form of a cream.
The product comes in cream form. I find that it easily spreads on the skin, too. Take note: only a small amount is needed on application. When I used this for the first time, I took about a centimeter of cream. As a result, I ended up white-faced and I had to wipe the excess cream with a tissue paper. LOL! 


You only need a tiny amount of cream for your face.
The product blended well with my skin! After spreading, it looked invisible but I could feel it covering my face. Here are a few swatches:


Upon application: cream is all opaque.

Tadah! It disappeared and made my skin lighter!
While using this Baby Choux Base, I noticed that I didn't need to put on a lot of foundation for coverage. This product already corrected my skin's imperfections first hand. Also, makeup application became so easy! The colors stuck easily to my face and it stayed there for a long time. 

It gave me an extra blush. Researching about it online, I found out that Berry Choux goes well for pale skin because it enhances color. In truth, it gave me that doll-like glow. It seems that I have found the secret to cosplayers' flawless look, then. They were right, primers really work like magic! 


When worn... see the doll-like glow.
I have oily skin but with this product, my face didn't look shiny after 2 hours. Or even afterwards, the shine wasn't as offensive as before. Plus, the makeup colors were still there, unlike without a makeup base. 

Baby Choux Base is a great product from Etude House! I will definitely buy another once this runs out. Since only a small amount is needed for each application, I know that one jar will last for a long time! Talk about value for money! This is one piece of magic that will definitely be part of my makeup routine from now on!

The 2019 Starbucks SG Planner

Happy New Year, dear readers! The year 2019 comes with new wishes, new beginnings, and of course, new planners! Yay! I'm excited for all of it. The new year for me means a fresh start for all the failures I've had for the previous year. Yep, I feel ya! 2018 was kinda rough for me, too. But anyways, I'm here to share with you a tool to help us face the days ahead.  I'm sure that some of us take life as it goes along. But there are others, like me, who have a planning personality. And lemme tell ya, it's really frustrating how things don't go according to plan. Most of the time, life doesn't make it go as planned. Ugh... But fret not! Even if life foils everything, that doesn't stop us from using planners! Wheee~ They're cute and inspirational. They give us a sense of "getting our life together" , too. Hahaha~ So for this post, I'm gonna share with you the Starbucks Singapore  2019 planner!  The 2019 Starbucks Singapore Planner

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur

Lee Min Ho Mall Tour: SM Mall of Asia Leg

I still can't believe that it was just two nights ago (November 18, 2012), I saw Lee Min Ho in the flesh! As early as 5:30PM, I was already in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, joining the fans as we eagerly wait for his arrival. The crowd was very overwhelming. I bet some people waited there two hours earlier than I did!  Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor. His popular dramas include Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, and Faith among others. His prowess as an actor and his to-die-for looks are enough to make women go gaga over him -me included!  He is my favorite actor. I love his dramas. In the future, as I gain more skills, I plan to cosplay his characters, especially Johnny from City Hunter. He is the reason why I love Korean products like Etude House . Now, I have another brand to love... and it's a Filipino brand! I'm very happy that Lee Min Ho is the latest endorser of the clothing line, Bench .  Crowds make me uncomfortable. It was my first time to have ever attended
