in the bag

Popped in at the Red Dot Happy Skin launch to say hi to makeup maven Mara Manuel who was giving makeup lessons the whole Saturday afternoon. My Ziya bag is deceiving because I can’t leave home without my D90 and there’s really nothing much inside. You’ll find Happy Skin — Shut Up & Kiss Me in First Kiss for my lippie fix and Don’t Get Mad Get Even powder in Soft Beige which I’m into right now. The Anastasia brow powder Ericke was supposed to send me was nowhere to be found, so I bought two K-Palette 1-day tattoo products to test. Luckily, they are 25% off. Got grayish brown for the brows and darkest brown eyeliner. I also never leave home without a pair of sunglasses. My wallet suits the “barya” I’m very used to. LOL.

Just In at Red Dot | Happy Skin

Happy Skin

Who would forget Kris’s Valentine Kiss on the front page of a daily? It’s the good reviews, however, that keep on bringing girls to Happy Skin, the beauty brand developed by Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez and Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, authorities on skin and beauty.

Rejoice, Red Dot in Laoag is the newest home of the original Filipino cosmetic brand. Happy, they have testers!

I like the texture of Shut Up & Kiss Me. Found pretty pinks, peaches, berries and nudes. I stay away from nude nudes, so I’m always on the hunt for happy neutrals for everyday wear.  Happy Skin had the Asian skin in mind, I guess, so you’ll love any of their foundation basics, just as I love Soft Beige, both the powder and creme. But it’s the Zit Zapper Second Skin Cream that I’m more excited about. Tried it on and after 4 hours (while blogging), the whole thing is still on. It turned dewy, but not at all oily. It’s supposed to work well for oily and sensitive skin.

Check out the Happy Skin counter. My friend Mara Manuel and other makeup artists will give tutorials this weekend. You can inquire at Red Dot for specific dates.

OOTD: Spring Evening


Wore this to a Chinese wedding party at Gloria Maris. The lauriat was fab as usual. The dress was from a limited collection at Red Dot. And the pouch by Renegade Folk, now also available at Red Dot.

Tried and tested a BYS matte lipstick in Disco Inferno I picked from Watson’s earlier. It stayed on all night. It was too matte though that I dabbed a thin veil of YSL Rouge Volupte Corail Jalouse lipstick onto it.
