NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Review + Swatches

Here's another NYX product review for all you make up junkies out there...

That's right! It's the NYX Xtreme Lip Cream
Bought this one at Rainbow Project, located at Fashion Walk, 2nd floor of Gaisano Mall of Davao in Bajada.
(You can also check their multiply site here.)
They sell these babies for P 300.00 each.
I bought three of them, varying from a nude to red to pink one.

According to NYX, it's not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's liquid lipstick that goes on with full Xtreme color and intense shine.
It has a variety of 11 shades, same as the Soft matte Lip Cream.
XLC11 Nude Peach Fuzz (same as SMLC's Istanbul) 

 XLC07 Absolute Red (same as SMLC's Monte Carlo)

XLC06 Pinky Nude (same as SMLC's San Paulo)

From left to right: XLC11, XLC06, XLC07 


...and now I'm gonna narrow it down to each shade.
Let's start with XLC11 Nude Peach Fuzz

 It's a light peachy-pink color, almost similar to that NYX round lipstick in Strawberry Milk. It suits better for girls with fair skin. For morena skin, like mine, this is not the right shade. 

Next is XLC06 Pinky Nude

 First I thought it was just an ordinary pinkish-almost-fuschia color like the SMLC in San Paulo, but for me, I think it's the perfect dolly pink color for all skin types.

..and last but not the least, XLC07 Absolute Red
 (w/out flash)
This is actually my personal fave. It's a rich red color and it's so perfect for all skin types.


  • The product is highly pigmented
  • It's extremely glossy
  • The perfect lipstick + lip gloss combination
  • Lasts for 3-4 hours (for me, that's okay)
  • It's moisturizing. Doesn't dry on the lips easily.
  • Shades are limited. Only 11 are available. I hope NYX is going to release more shades of this product
  • For its price, I find it a bit pricey.
  • It only contains 7 mL (sad)
  • Can only be bought online on some territories.
Overall rating: 4/5

and that's it for my review of this amazing new product from NYX.
For those who have tried this products, what do you love/hate about it?
and for those who haven't, any plans on purchasing this one?
I would love to know your insights about this product.

'till next post! - k*

Born to wear something from Sneaker Club :)

Hi guys! Today I'm not going to post about beauty or food.
This blogpost is intended for "Blog For A Shoe" contest.
I'm not really into heels or like any other girl out there who loves fancy shoes (trust me, I may be a girl, but I really don't understand why girls have this fascination for shoes >.<)
Here in Davao, we may have a lot of shops that sell sneakers, but what I love about Sneaker Club, they sell Vans, Nike, Adidas, New Balance, and it's the only shop here in the city that sells Onitsuka Tiger!
 One of their new arrivals is this very cute Nike sneakers that really caught my eye.

Nike originated in the US, Oregon to be specific, and it was known as Blue Ribbon Sports (BRS) at 1964. They used to be partners with Onitsuka Tiger, but when their partnership came to an end,on 1971, they changed their name to Nike.
I like the one in black and violet better :)

What really impressed me is that Sneaker Club has Onitsuka Tiger.
Onitsuka tiger was founded in 1949 at Kobe, Japan. 
Ever since, these shoes become a fashion statement around the world when Uma Thurman wore them in Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2
I can really say that we Davaoenos are so lucky to have this store in the city.
So, what are waiting for guys?
If you're a fan of sneakers like me or probably just wanting to buy a good quality pair of sneakers, visit Sneaker Club - 2nd Floor Abreeza Mall today :) - k*

It's Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines my fellow bloggers!
Wow! How I wish that everyday is Valentines Day...
Not just because my boyfriend was extra sweet today, but seeing people all around me, single or not, spreading the love makes me so happy.

Like any other couple, we celebrated this day with a movie and a dinner after at Duo Commis.
awww!!! the TULIPS were unexpected. According to him, white tulips mean sincerity

We Watched 'The Vow' at Abreeza mall...

Is that the hungry face? LOL

He also gave me a basket of my favorite chocolates 

These tulips are amazing!

The message says "I Love You, Bewby" :D

Yes, I'm in a NO CHOCOLATE rule, but today is an exception... x

..and again, yes, I love Lindt Chocolate 

That's all for this post :)
So, how was your Valentines day this year? How were you able to celebrate it?
Remember, single or not, it really doesn't matter, as long as you were able to express the love to those people who are very dear to you.

'till next time..- k*

24 months and counting ♥

Yes, friends...I'm happy and in love !!!

This is actually my first time to write about us ever since I started blogging (just saying :p)
Last January 31, 2012, me and my boyfriend, Jack, celebrated our 2nd anniversary.
Can't believe that it's been 2 years since we made our relationship official. It really has been a rollercoaster ride for the both us.

Like any love story, we were once strangers.
I met him last December of 2009. Me and my friends watched "Paranormal Activity". One of my friends introduced him to me. Wasn't really interested of meeting him of course.
But when January 2010 came, it was a whole new beginning. We begin to exchange text messages with each other. He asked me out and we had our first date at Chicco di Caffe and Avenida.

To be honest, I wasn't prepared to be in a relationship that time and he wasn't also. Our relationship was so rough that I was actually thinking of giving up. He was also thinking of the same thing. 
But days passed, we started to get along well. He taught me how to compromise and open up to him when it comes to problems. I feel safe when I'm with him and I really love the way he takes care of me.

It all makes sense because in love, we don't always get what we want, but instead, we get what we need...ayii~! 

He may not be perfect for everybody, but for me I'm hoping that he's the right one...
It's not everyday you get to meet a very nice guy.
He's just like any ordinary guys out there: He likes gaming. He watches anime. He likes techie gadgets. He's into cars and other guy stuff.

I know us girls are always looking for the perfect one. But remember, there's no such thing as perfect.
Ever since I met him, I learn to appreciate the things around me and that makes him very special :)

So, back to our anniversary...
Since it's exam week, I decided that we should celebrate it as simple as we can.
We had our lunch at Matina Swiss Deli

... and those doughnuts?
My anniversary gift :)

..and that's all for this post..'till next time - k*

Heart Series: Teenage Sweetheart

This is going to be my last look for this heart series.
As I was listening to Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream", it came up into my mind about the feeling of falling in love during high school..and that's why I came up with this look.
Simple, lovely, and youthful. Suitable for teens and teens at heart.

Teens don't like wearing too much make up, that's why I came up with a look using a couple of matte eye shadows from my NYX S119 palette and that very cute winged eye, and I also noticed that a LOT of teens are hooked up with lip gloss (trust me, when I was in high school, I'm in love with lip gloss too), that's why I included a light pink lip gloss in this look.

  • Garnier Light Whiten and Even Moisturizing Cream
  • Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Medium Beige
  • Etude House Surprise Essence Concealer in #2
  • Fanny Serrano Cake Foundation in Toffee
  • Nichido powder blush in Sunkissed
  • Etude House Proof 10 eye primer
  • NYX Nude on nude (S119) palette
*eye shadow/s used
  • Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black Ink
  • ELF Waterproof Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara
  • Avon Simply Pretty ColorBliss Lipstick in Pampering Pink
  • Candy Doll lip gloss in Strawberry Milk
..and that's it for my teenage sweetheart look and also the end of this series >.<
I really had fun creating some looks for Valentines Day.
It's so obvious that I'm confused what make up to wear, right? LOL

"Let's go all the way tonight,
no regrets, just love,
we can dance until we die,
you and I, we'll be young forever.."

I hope you enjoy your Valentines. It really doesn't matter if your single or dating, what's important is that you'd be able to express your love to those people who are very dear to you.

Take care!..'till next post - k*

Heart Series: Sexy Valentine

This is going to be my second look for my Heart Series.
I know, I tried. Either you love it or you hate it I'm still going to post this one :p

It's all about bringing out the sexiness in you...

It's my first time to wear such long and thick lashes that I bought in Gaisano mall for only P 22.00!



  • Garnier Light Whiten and Even Moisturizing Cream
  • Huroo Huroo Highlight Pop Twist Color Base
  • Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Medium Beige
  • Etude House Surprise Essence Concealer in #2
  • Fanny Serrano Cake Foundation in Toffee
  • Nichido Powder Blush in Cool Rum
  • Victoria Secret Very Sexy Limited Edition Blushing Cream Duo in Heat
  • Etude House Proof 10 eye primer
  • Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow Limited Edition 10-shadow palette

*eye shadow/s used

  • Nichido Girls' Night Out eye pencil in #04 (Metal Blue)
  • In2it Waterproof Gel Liner in Very Black
  • ELF Waterproof Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara
  • Nichido Lip Pencil in LP04 (Rosette)
...and that's it for this look!
Too simple, eh?
I just used one color of eye shadow and that's a light pink color because I just want to make it a very simple and easy to do make up look. I'm not really a huge fan of cream eye shadows, but there are some certain events that I prefer wearing them, just like a date for example. 

Being sexy doesn't mean wearing short skirts and mini dresses or wearing too much make up that will make you look like a Kim-Kardashian-wannabe..
Being SEXY is all about personality. It is on how you deliver that God-given beauty

...and do you know what guys think what is sexy with us girls? Our CONFIDENCE with ourselves.

tune in for my next post and be that sexy gal this Love month
Take care! - k*
