[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 lipstick box

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.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[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!

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
