Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Review

An affordable and effective eyebrow pencil
And because the past year has been all about brows, thanks to Cara DeLevingne, I have a ton of brow product reviews to share with you guys! I have been obsessed with the Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Pencil the past few months. So obsessed that when I left my only pencil in our home at Nueva Ecija and I realized I don't have any backup here in manila, I kinda panicked and bought 5 of these when I dropped by the Etude House shop. Haha!

The Etude House Drawing Eyebrow pencil has an amazing color payoff. The angled tip just makes everything so much easier and I like that it glides on smoothly on my brows. No tugging at all. Given that it glides effortlessly, you need to use a very light hand when applying it. When you're wearing this, there's no need to worry for touch ups as it will stay on your brows all day.

It also comes in with a spooly which is very useful. The spooly blends out the harsh lines easily and kinda blurs it out resulting to a more natural looking brows. The spooly is not too stiff too so it's not harsh on the skin but it does the job very well.

I can't think of anything I don't like about this Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Pencil because it does the job very well, and I am head over heels about the fact that it has a spooly on the other end so it saves space on my makeup kit. And hey, would you believe that this brow pencil is only 148php? Such a steal, right?

I highly recommend this product to everyone just because it's awesome. I mean, what's not to love? It's affordable, it stays on all day, it is easy to apply and blend, not to mention the awesome spooly brush that comes with it. It's just a must have! To be honest, everytime I go to Etude House I feel like I need to grab one of this. Haha! You know, I have issues with my favorite products being discontinued so I'm stocking up as much as I can! :P

Dampa Sa Tarlac Seafood Restaurant - Tarlac City

Dampa sa Tarlac Seafood Restaurant
I can't believe it's already Sunday and that I need to write another food entry, it feels like I just wrote about our favorite ramen place yesterday! Time really flies! So anyways, we drove for about an hour just to eat dinner in Dampa sa Tarlac because we thought it's similar to the one in Macapagal - Pasay city. The concept is similar but it's waaay better in Dampa Macapagal. I'm not sure though if it's because we came here at night so almost all their seafood are sold out already?

It has a homey ambiance which I like. The service is a bit slow though.

They have different seafood stations too but there's almost nothing left to choose from when we got there so we just settled in ordering from their menu. We ordered a Salmon Sashimi which I do not have a photo of because we sent it back. It looks gross and not fresh at all, the salmon isn't pink anymore and is not firm. At first they even insisted that it's still fresh when it's obvious that it's gone bad already and even told us that all their salmon sahimi looks like that. It's disgusting.
Fresh Turnips
At least they were nice enough to give as fresh turnips as an appetizer to make up for the sashimi situation...

We ended up ordering a set meal and an ala carte order of Inihaw na Liempo and Inihaw na pusit. We paid about 900+php or a little over 1000php if I'm not mistaken. That's actually hella cheap because the servings were huge. We actually have a lot left to take home.

Aside from the sashimi drama, I really enjoyed their food especially the Sisig na Bangus. It was amazing and is definitely my favorite! The other dishes were okay and still tastes good considering it's price point. If you're up north and on a tight budget while having a road trip, Dampa sa Tarlac is a good place to go and fill those tummies up! :)

It's more of a cafeteria type with a clean and homey ambiance rather than a restaurant. And I really think they should give their menu a makeover. Oops!

Of course Dampa Macapal is waaay better and waay bigger but it's more expensive at Dampa Macapagal too. Haha!

elf Studio Eyebrow Kit Review

elf eyebrow kit review
I just blogged about the elf Studio blush the other day and I'm back with another elf product review. Let's talk about the perfect eyebrow kit for beginners also know as the elf Studio Eyebrow Kit this time, shall we?

elf Cosmetics Studio Blush Review

elf studio blush review
The only reason why I got this elf Studio blush is because it's cheap and I thought it would be a great dupe for the much raved Nars Orgasm. I mean look at it, doesn't it look exactly like the Nars Orgasm minus the elf logo on the blush? I didn't really expect much from the elf Studio Blush though because it's just too affordable. Hehe!
elf studio blush is a nars orgasm dupe
Anyways, it's housed in a plastic packaging which is flimsy which is to be expected considering its price. It's kind of a let down though because when I tried it, it doesn't give off much color at all. It's powdery too and the tiny specks of shimmer is all I ever get every time I try to build the product up. So yup, it's not buildable, at all. This would make a great highlighter though!

And also, since I love elf products especially their eyebrow kit, I want to give this blush another try so I will get something with a darker shade and see if the darker shades will give a better color payoff. I'll update you about that!
Pinay Beauty on a budget elf studio blush review
I am not pleased with this shade Peachy Keen but I'm definitely giving this elf Studio Blush another try by trying out the darker shades, maybe I'll try the Blushing Rose or the Berry Merry next time since I really believe that I just picked a shade that's way too light. ;)

Anyways, have you tried other elf Cosmetics Studio Blush too? If so, can you let me know if the other shades are any better and worth purchasing? ;)

Ramen Nagi - SM Mall of Asia

ramen nagi review
I am currently nursing a fever as I am writing this post and sadly, I've had this fever on and off since January 1. Yes. I am sick as I welcome 2016. -_- Anyways, the other night Earvin made a joke that he'll take me to Ramen Nagi as soon as I get better. He knows how much I love Ramen Nagi and that I've been craving for their Butao King for days. And since I want to publish an article every Sunday related to food, I just find it fitting to publish a Ramen Nagi post right now since all I can ever think of is their ramen. ;)

Ciracle Absolute Deep Cleansing Oil Review

affordable and effective cleansing oil
I have tried a few cleansing oils before but I usually don't like them because their consistency is too thick for my liking, a thick cleansing oil consistency means you have to put in extra effort to rinse it off. I am lazy as heck so that's a big no no for me. And I am so glad I stumbled up the Ciracle Absolute Deep Cleansing oil for it has the perfect consistency! It's quite affordable too compared to other cleansing oils as it only costs 1,000php+ for a 150ml bottle. I also like the fact that is has a pumps lock so no messy spillage and all.
ciracle absolute deep cleansing oil review
It removes even the most stubborn waterproof eye makeup, believe me. I usually only use two pumps of the Ciracle Absolute Deep Cleasing Oil and them massage it on my face for a few minutes before I wipe it off. I also rinse it off with lukewarm water and it really does the job in removing everything. I don't get any makeup residue on the cotton pads when I use this as my makeup remover.

must have cleansing oil

The Ciracle Absolute Deep Cleansing Oil also claims to manage sebum, control oil, and tighten large pores but I have yet to notice those effects since I don't use this regularly. I only use it when I have a heavy makeup on. I will definitely update you if I'd see any of these claims take effect on me. :)
