Review: Maybelline ColorSensational Creamy Matte Brown Nude Lipsticks

When it comes to lipsticks, I usually just switch between MLBB-pinks, nudes, browns and berries. That's why I got really excited when I saw that the new-ish Maybelline Creamy Brown Nudes were on sale at BeautyMNL's site! I immediately Googled for more swatches to help me pick which shades to get.

I decided to get four out of the six shades available. And it's one of those purchases I don't regret.

Althea Korea Turns 1!

Yes, you read that right! Althea Korea is celebrating its first birthday today!

If you're not familiar with Althea, it's basically a K-beauty online store that ships internationally, directly from Korea! I have ordered through Althea several times already since they started shipping to the Philippines. It has become one of my fave online stores to shop at, especially now that I can't drop by malls as often as I did before (though I sure miss it!). Shipping's quite fast, too! And I find the shipping rate reasonable as well. Don't miss out and read more about Althea Korea in my post *here.* You're welcome!

To celebrate its first birthday, Althea has got a few promotions going on. Head on over to right now and shop away for a chance to win one of the bonggang prizes being given away!

Current Zen Zest Faves

Hey, hey, hey! Just dropping by for a quick post! I just want to share my current favorite scents with you guys. And they're from a brand whose name always triggers flashbacks (been using it since my college days! Aww). And also a brand that just turned 15 about a month ago - Zen Zest!

One of my all-time favorite scents is from Zen Zest. I first came across the brand (their EDTs, to be exact) when I was a junior in college, I think? That was like eight years ago! Zen Zest has been one of my go-to scent shops ever since.
