Chris Brown Live in Manila 2015

We went to Chris Brown’s concert last night, July 21. It’s his second time to visit Manila. His last show here was in 2008. The show started at 9 pm and lasted for about 2 hours. EA, Jay R, Q-York and Philippine All Stars performed before the concert started. They were great btw. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

image

There were a lot of dancing and freestyling. He did some beatboxing too during New Flame. I observed his smile while they were freestyling. He obviously loves what he’s doing. We enjoyed that a lot! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ฏ I cant deny he’s very talented. He can sing, rap, dance and write songs. There were still some available seats but that didnt stop Chris Brown to perform at his best. It did not stop us either to scream are lungs out. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š

Review + Swatches: A’PIEU Air Fit Cushion in #21

Tonight’s review is about my first ever bb cushion. I have never seen a cushion in real life. I was curious so I bought one for myself. I got the lightest shade, #21. I could just go to korean brands’ boutiques here to swatch one but I wont buy any. I think they are pricier here. That would be awkward if I’ll just get out of the store. ๐Ÿ˜‚

image

Cushions are usually expensive. My budget for makeup is not more than 500 pesos per product. I want my readers to save ๐Ÿ’ฐ too. I found out Apieu has an affordable cushion. I clicked the checkout button right away. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚ You can get this for less than 500 or even 400 pesos if it’s on sale when you preorder it from sellers or buy directly from korean sites.

image

What is it?
Air-Light Powder’ gives light and clear application giving natural make up finish. Used mineral water instead of water for clean and moisture skin. ‘Rolling System’ with skin curves giving clean and even application. ‘Airy Cover Powder’ gives silky comfortable skin coverage. Aloe / tea tree extract gives comfort on sensitive skin. Patent ingredient avocado peptide gives healthy elastic skin.

Now I dont know what the whole description means but Im pretty sure it’s a bb cushion. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…

Review: Bifesta MOIST Cleansing Lotion

Hello readers! Im taking a break from reviewing korean brands this weekend. Tonight’s review is about my current makeup remover. I’m a fan of cleansing tissues until I’ve read that it can actually damage the skin’s surface. Plus there are a lot of preservatives on most tissues.

image

I was looking for a makeup remover. Bifesta’s product fits my budget. We all know I have acne prone skin. You might be wondering why I bought the moist type instead of the sebum type. Moist type is for dry and sensitive skin. I searched for reviews about sebum type. Some bloggers experienced sting. I’m prioritizing my skin’s sensitivity.

What is it:
Are you hesitant to use a makeup remover because your skin is dry? Donโ€™t worry because Bifesta Cleansing Lotion- Moist is the right product for you! It contains ceramide-like ingredients to retain the moisture of the skin.

Ingredients:
