[Review] Queen Bee Lipstick from Colour Collection

After some months of no makeup reviews, here I am making one at last! And the inspiration that got me writing? This unique Queen Bee lipstick given out by Sample Room! This is one of the Ultimate Wear Lipstick line from Colour Collection. I tried this sample for five days straight to get a feel of the product.

The red of Queen Bee


The description above is the official statement of the product. It also claims that it lasts for up to 8 hours, unless you eat something oily. It also boasts to be non-drying.

And true enough, the color itself screams 'power'. It is red with an orange hue. Reds such as this shade is perfect for parties! 

 It only took me one swipe for a rich and vibrant color. As for longevity, it stays true to its claim. The color would stay even after 8 hours or more, depending on the food that you eat. On the first day, it lasted for 10 hours, though the color was not as vibrant as the first application. On the next day, it only lasted for four hours because I had adobo for lunch.  It fades as time goes by.

The color flatters me so well that I get a lot of compliments from people. And they can't stop staring at me (or at my lips). Hehehe~ I received a lot of positive remarks: beautiful, suits well, and mesmerized! I really wasn't used to being the center of attention and it did get a little awkward sometimes

And removing it wasn't a hassle, at all. It just came off when I brushed my teeth. But for emergency cases, you would really need a lip and eye makeup remover as ordinary tissue wipes won't take it off completely. 

And the verdict? 

My review left at Sample Room
Yep, I am so in love with this lippie. I find that this is a rare shade of red that compliments well for me. It is dark enough to be noticed, but not too dark to be intimidating.

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

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

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi
