Maybelline only launch 10 colors here in the Philippines hopefully they will launch other colors like on US which are mostly nudes and can be wear everyday. By the way above are the swatch of the three shades that I got. If you are asking if they are pigmented, definitely they are pigmented. As in for only one swipe of the applicator on your lips you can see they opaque color. It leaves by for a saturated color. Here are some other colors that you can see to their kiosk.

Image from HappySloths
 Since I don't have the entire collection the above picture came from Happy Sloths. As you can see, the color variation that was released here in the Philippines are a little bit of colorful. From the 05- Loyalist, 10 - Dreamer, 15- Lover all of this shades are best for tisay girls out their / "mas maputi". While 20 - Pioneer, 25- Heroine, 30 - Romantic have some red hues that compliments darker skin tones. And lastly 35- Creator, 40-Believer, 45 Escapist are perfect for those make up goers that is look for adventurous colors.  

Longevity 

As this one claims,  it can last up to 16 hours, me saying " What? 16 hours? May tao bang hindi matutulog to wear this one?" Well that is just my opinion, but yes, this lip product stand-stood by its claims for a long lasting color on your lips. I wear test this one and I will upload a video of it in a while. I ate fatty and oil food, bread, yogurt and many other more but still this lipstick still manage to stick on my lips. But not in a perfect shape it loosen up a little on the inner part of the lips where mostly damp. 

Availability

Like every other Maybelline Product, this product is available on any SM Department Store, Robinson Stores, Ayalla Malls and etc that have Maybelline counters. 

Price

I got mine from Lazada which is on sale for about 249 pesos but the original price is just 299 pesos. 

Pros

  • It is a SUPER LONG LASTING LIPSTICK
  • HIGHLY Pigmented Lipstick
  • Easy to Apply on lips
  • A little goes a long way, you can exactly have one lipstick in a year with this one. 
  • Sleek packaging
  • Have that sweet vanilla flavor smell

Cons

  • Tacky feeling upon application. You need to purely dry it up before talking to some one, or else you will feel that elastic technology that is in this lipstick
  • Might be drying for your lips if you will use it in a straight week. Definitely will recommend to exfoliate and moisturized your lips every night. 
  • Can only be removed by a oil based make up remover.

Verdic

I WILL RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT FOR YOU #DASHINGMOMSQUAD!!! Why? simply because this lipstick can save you after eating those fatty food. Lip color stays for hours and you don't need to touch up every time. Once the product is completely dry then you are good to go. Another thing is it is not that pricey, for only 299 pesos you will get a long lasting lipstick, and their are lots of colors to choose from. You would not have that same problem again on what you will wear.

Also Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink, will just only be remove by an oil based make up remover. It is a little bit of drying so always exfoliate and moisturized your lips especially at night.

Kbeauty seems to be one of the highlights and most trend make-up around early 2017 up until now. Today I'm going to share with you a review about one of the well known Korean brand Missha, and their famous product Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream. So lets get to it, by the way I'm also sharing some easy make up look with the products that I got from Althea Korea.


Packaging

The product is well packed in a dark bronze and chrome box as you can see below. Unlike their packaging before which was a twist cap seal, now they upgraded to a pump nozzle with a resealable cap.

They have 6 shades available on their website which are #13 Bright Beige, #21 Light Beige, #23 Natural Beige, #27Honey Beige, #29 Caramel Beige, #31 Golden Beige. Althea Korea sent me the #23 Natural Beige. At first I thought the color is a little bit darker on my skin tone but upon blending it well, it fits perfectly to my skin.  On Althea Korea website  #21 & #23 are the only shades available but I think they are the shades that fits any skin tone. 


Ingredients 

M PERFECT COVER B.B CREAM SPF42PA+++ (NO.23)
WATER (AQUA), CYCLOMETHICONE, ETHYLHEXYL METHOXYCINNAMATE, ZINC OXIDE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, PEG-10 DIMETHICONE, CETYL PEG/PPG-10/1 DIMETHICONE, ARBUTIN, MINERAL OIL, GLYCERIN, POLYETHYLENE, TALC, PHENYL TRIMETHICONE, BEESWAX (CERA ALBA), IRON OXIDES (CI 77492), SODIUM CHLORIDE, IRON OXIDES (CI 77491 ), IRON OXIDES (CI 77499), METHYLPARABEN, DIMETHICONE, PROPYLPARABEN, ROSA CANINA FRUIT OIL, SIMMONDSIA CHINENSIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL, SQUALANE, HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN, MACADAMIA TERNIFOLIA SEED OIL, DISODIUM EDTA, ADENOSINE, CAVIAR EXTRACT, ALGAE EXTRACT, ROSMARINUS OFFICINALIS (ROSEMARY) LEAF EXTRACT, CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA (MATRICARIA) FLOWER EXTRACT, SODIUM HYALURONATE, FAGUS SYLVATICA BUD EXTRACT, CERAMIDE 3, FRAGRANCE (PARFUM), HYDROXYISOHEXYL 3-CYCLOHEXENE CARBOXALDEHYDE, BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPIONAL, BENZYL SALICYLATE, HYDROXYCITRONELLAL, ALPHA-ISOMETHYL IONONE, HEXYL CINNAMAL, LINALOOL, CITRONELLOL

Product not yet blended
Blended product, covered a little color from the lipstick mark

Longevity


I wear the BB cream all day, Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream lasted for about 6 hours on my face. Oil build up around afternoon 2 :00 pm but I still manage to not blot. I saw oil build up especially on my nose area. Around 4 in the afternoon that is when I decided to take a tissue and blot the oil away of my face. At the end of the day I can still see a sheer BB cream on my face.


Availability  

As I've said the product is only available online on Althea Korea and Missha's website, but if it happen that you will drop by on Korea why not buy it.

Price 

The price on Althea Korea PH is around 1,360pesos but they are on sale now which is 50% off so it only cost 560pesos

Pros 

  • It is light weight BB Cream.
  • Coverage is good on light pimple marks.
  • It makes your skin radiant and youthful.

Cons

  • You can only but it online.
  • I will not recommend this on super oily type of skin.

Verdict:

Picture of me after apply the full face makeup

My face after 4 hours

My overall experience with this product is good, aside from being a BB cream which is perfect for everyday use it contains SPF 42 for sun blocking defense. Coverage is light to medium, not build-able but the amount of coverage that it gave to my skin is good.

I think this can be my go to BB cream whenever I'm in a hurry and need to put on a make up with just using my hands/fingers. It's an all-in-one product that have moisturizer, concealer and foundation. Just top it off with some setting powder to lessen some dewy effect if you don't like it, add some eyebrows and lip stain and your good to go.

Whenever you're going to use this product don't forget to bring along a blotting paper specially at the T-zone area and to those with oily skin like me. But don't worry the staying power of this BB cream is longer than other BB cream. Around 4-6 hours to be exact (I tested this products with an air-conditioned office and a little bit of humidity here in the Philippines)

I'll be featuring for today is the Gigi Hadid Jetsetter Palette. From the name itself Jetsetter meaning it is a perfect makeup it that you can bring along to your travels. The palette cost 1,899 pesos and it is available on your favorite Maybelline make up kiosk.

The Gigi Hadid Jetsetter Palette

Gigi Hadid x Dashing Mom review
Cover of the palette
As you can see at the picture above, the palette have it's holographic sliding cover with a pinkish nude/ millennial pink color for the palette itself. I can say that it somehow not the type of cover that can easily be dirty. It is sturdy perfect for travels which is a good thing. It has a magnetic closure.

Price : 1899

Sizes/ Weight 
  • Concealers - 0.08 oz/ 2.16g
  • Lip balms - 0.04 oz/1g
  • Bronzer - 0.07 oz/ 2g
  • Highlighter - 0.10 oz/ 3g
  • Eyeshadow - 0.11 oz/3g
  • Mascara - 0.15 fl oz / 4.5 mL
I find it weird but concealers and lip balm are just like in the same pan but concealers have different weight.

The size of the palette seems big to carry on a small bag but still manageable to carry it around.

Gigi Hadid x Dashing Mom review

Here is the inside of this palette. It contain the following ; Concealers which have 2 variants a lighter shade and darker one, Lip Balm, nude and pink one. Eye shadows for highlight, crease, lids corners and liner. Blush medyo may pagkapinkish na orangy , a Bronzer na warm tone I think and a big pan Highlighter. A Mini Mascara the Volum' Express Collosal of Mabelline. 2 brush one for the powder and the other one is a dual ended brush great for blending and application of eye shadows. You can check the image below for the swatch.

1- Black Eyeshadow 2- Brown Eyeshadow 3- Pink Eyeshadow 4-Highlighter eyeshadow 5- Blush on 6- Bronzer 7-Highlighter


I Made a video on the application of the product. 



The Verdict. 

Honestly I thought that this palette will work for me not just because it is a collaboration of Gigi Hadid and Maybelline, but then there are some flaws that I found upon testing this product.


  1. Eyeshadows are not pigmented. I put on lots of layer of it but still I wasn't able to get the color that I want for my eyes. Also whenever you blend the eye shadows the pigment is fading. Another thing the powders are a little bit of powdery. 
  2. Lip balms colors are not for my skin type I think. Because I can't barely see the color of the lip balms on my lips.
  3. On my opinion I'm not a fan of there chosen blush on color here. 
  4. The brushes are not doing good especially the powder brush, upon using it I feel the it pushes my pores and I do feel some itch. Maybe it is not that soft silky brush for my skin type.
Don't worry I know na inuna ko yung mga flaws kasi I want to end with the good ones. 
  1. The mascara choice is good. It is one of the best mascara's that Maybelline have. It lift up my lashes without even curling it.
  2. I like the color of the kit itself together with the holographic cover. It is so millennial.
  3. The Highlighter colors were the best. Gigi Hadid did a great job to this one. The color is great, and once you apply it to your face you will see that your face is glowing. 
  4. Final thing is the MIRROR! It is big enough especially for travelers that wants to check on their faces while on plane/car. Applying make up won't that be hard. 
Does your 1,899 pesos worth for this one? Well for me no, there are many Mabelline products there that could definitely give you more than the items in this palette. How I wish that Maybelline have their own stand alone Highlighter product like this. 

Hope you like my review and don't forget to watch and subscribe to my Youtube Channel. 
May your eyebrows be as strong as your coffee! Thank you
Last Sunday I went off to Manila earlier for me to witness the Dance Showdown of two great dance group. LGAC and TPM at Urban Street Market on SM City North EDSA.



The Dance showdown started with a bomb when LGAC took off the stage to show their moves. See the video below to witness it.


After the the LGAC the TPM ( Team Package Makers) show off their dance moves and wow the audience. 

Both of the teams did a good job showing their talents. The crowd enjoyed watching the two groups especially when they do their showdown. SM City North EDSA does not stop their, they also have a little games to the mall goers. They call out some audience to take the stage and have some friendly dance showdown. Awesome prizes like Power Banks, VR Boxes and an Android Phone were given. 
Holiday Season might be over, but for me it seems to be longer because of what I received from Althea Korea. By the way have you guys heard of this brand? Here are some of the basic information about Althea Korea so #DashingMomSquad reads carefully.



So What is Althea Korea?

According to their site, the word "Althea" is the national flower of Korea. It represents the beauty of Korea and delivers authentic K-beauty in the world..." In other words, Althea Korea is somehow like an online store that is more on Korean Beauty products and tools.

What is Althea Beauty Box?

Althea Beauty Box is a limited edition boxes formulated by the fairy team from Seoul, with full of the products that you can find site wide. These boxes are easily get out of stock, but don't worry, there are a bunch of thematic boxes 2-3 to be exact every month.

Trend Boxes or Althea Boxes?

These are the two types of boxes every month. Trend Boxes contain hot products (either a new brand or new products from an existing brand) based on some of Korea's biggest beauty trends. Mostly Althea's fairy team release this box once a month only. While on the other hand Althea boxes have a theme, giving the customers a mix of love and new favorites depending on the market. They release this box twice a month.

What to expect inside of the boxes?

You will definitely going to love this box because it contains 5-12 full-size products depending on the theme and its value. Unlike other boxes, Althea Korea makes sure that the customers will love this, not only its cost lower but there is no subscription involve to this one. All you need to do is keep updating if Althea releases one because it it just limited edition once they do.

Going back to my first ever Althea Box, The Red Sparkling Box Holiday edition. I love all of the items that I found inside of it! Let me show them to you one by one.
