[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!

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the
