Summertime! Time to bust out the cushion compacts in an attempt to make my makeup last longer. 😀 And because I want to look fresh and bright without going full-on dewy (pass on the greasy look in the middle of summer), a mattifying cushion compact felt like a safe investment to me. Meet The Face Shop Miracle Finish Oil Control Water Cushion in V103 Pure Beige (PHP 1,095).

The Philippine election season has heated up in more ways than one! It has been said that the 2016 election has been the most intense in the modern history of the country. So much drama, and it didn’t even end with the debates and the voting. (In case you’re unaware, there was a Twitter hashtag that trended over the last 24 hours. It concerned the candidates and their family members. It may or may not involve controversial NSFW fictional stuff. Oh my.)
But anyway, the mood struck me to do a full face on voting day. Never mind that it was stifling hot and the line was expected to be at least an hour long! lol

From having iffy combination-dry skin, I learned that I need BB Cream in my life just as much as I do foundation. My skin suffers these seasonal bouts of intense dryness, yet my T-zone remains constantly oily. So when I saw my precious stock of Fairydrops BB Cream go dangerously low (and discontinued locally), I started shopping for a replacement and found The Face Shop Photo Blur BB Cream (PHP 395).

I absolutely live for hydrating toners right now. I always thought that toners were only there to help along exfoliation, but the ones I’m using now have been beneficial in keeping my skin moist. (Yaaaaas for someone with dry skin!) I’m currently using The Face Shop Rice Ceramide Moisture Toner from recently-launched K-beauty online store, Althea Korea (PHP 190).
