This very beautiful Guerlain Terracotta Route Des Îles Tan Enhancing Bronzer (22g) is a limited edition release with Guerlain’s summer 2018 collection.

I like that the top doesn’t come off separately unlike the other LE bronzer in the same wooden packaging that I have.

40 Beauty Q&As

This is embarrassing. Karen and Shabby has once answered this same questionnaire 9 years ago here and here. NINE YEARS, JOIZ! Where was I?

Ok. Ok. I was a total noob to beauty, skincare, and makeup back then, alright? Now, after 9 years, I can confidently say that… I’m still a noob! 😅 BUT I’m now a more confident noob (that’s a scary combination, right?).

Anyway, I have no excuse, I really don’t. I just never got around to answering the questionnaire and I’m doing it now.

Yay?

Review: Pat McGrath MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation

In the initial release of the collection with the MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation palette in the official website, the palette sold out fast. I wasn’t sure if it would be available again. I think (and still do) it’s a limited holiday release, so I was a bit disappointed to miss out. To my surprise, Sephora Philippines had it. I quickly ordered the palette the moment Sephora PH announced they already carry the brand. The MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation is my first Pat McGrath eyeshadow palette. 🙂

Review: Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation

The Dior Forever Skin Glow is a new range of foundation under the Forever line, which was released early this year. It is actually a reformulation of (my holy grail) Diorskin Forever foundation. But other than a velvet matte finish foundation, they also released a radiant finish variant.

My shade is 2W

Description and ingredients

The new Dior Forever foundation comes in a glass bottle with pump. I like its new bottle design because it’s not bulky and easy to store and even pack for travel. It contains 30ml of product and has SPF35 PA++.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Whipped Body Creme

One reason I was keen on summer season was so I can use the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Whipped Body Cream. Its fragrance is just perfect for the season.

In the website, the body crème is said to be a seductive, sun-kissed fragrance of Bronze Goddess. I don’t know the scent of a Bronze Goddess, but OK. LOL! Seriously though, its scent reminds me of summer, sand, and water.

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Cushion

I meant to update on my project pan last year and give a list of products for project pan this year, but I’ve been testing out makeup since I “shopped my stash” that I forgot.

Anyway, today I will review the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Cushion.

This cushion wasn’t on my wish list nor did I have any interest in it, but Guerlain had this irresistible sale that included this. I seriously need to stop getting tempted by big offers. XD
