Binibining Pilipinas Candidates at Pizza Hut!

Binibining Pilipinas Candidates at Pizza Hut!

"It's truly inspiring to know that the Binibining Pilipinas 2011 candidates are not all beauty and brains-they have a soft spot for less fortunate ones, too. Last March 18, they visited CRIBS (Create Responsive Infants by Sharing) in Quezon City to provide toys and food for the children. The young ones also enjoyed spending time with these charming ladies, reflecting how little moments matter.

After a fulfilling day at CRIBS, they went to Pizza Hut Ali Mall for lunch. The lovely ladies enjoyed the Sicily Pan Pizza with creamy white sauce, roasted garlic, anchovies, mushroom and shrimp. Topped with mozzarella and parmesan, drizzled with olive oil. They partnered it off with Pesto Chicken Penne, penne pasta with basil, pesto and cream sauteed with tender chicken strips-- such popular healthy choices! Dairy Queen also surprised a candidate, Jennielyn Natividad (#5), who is celebrating her birthday that same date. She shared some chilled Dairy Queen treats, such DQ Celebration Cakes and Dilly Bars to cap off a hearty meal.

We are very pleased to have the beautiful Binibining Pilipinas ladies grace our restaurant. Best of luck to all the candidates on the Coronation Night, April 10! So, who are your beauty bets? Get a chance to shop & dine with your favorite Binibining Pilipinas 2011 candidate with our Facebook-exclusive promo

Fur on me

Hooray! We had a successful photoshoot yesterday! Photos coming soon. I enjoyed 3 hours of photoshoot by just chit chatting and 'fooling'around with different possibilities of poses. There were also quite a number of  photo teams and strollers at the location so we had a hard time choosing the best spots.

Review: Loreal HIP Shocking Shadow Pigments

I'm really excited to post a review about this product: Loreal HiP Shocking Shadow Pigments

with professional brush

This luminous, beautifully highlighting eye color with HiP Studio Secrets is easy to use and long lasting. There are actually 12 shades to choose from, I chose the bronze one. I am really amazed with the rich and very pigmented texture. I'm so in love with the shimmery sun-kissed color.

Take a look at my color test:

SHOCKING! It's makes my eyes pop out more!

It's approximately $12 and I must say that it's worth it. It's in a small jar, but really for long use. Plus, the small brush included in the package is really soft and wonderful. I think it is made of animal hair. I definitely recommend this to everyone!

Overall Rating: 10
Price: 9
Product Packaging: 10
Would I buy this product again? YES!

Wanna be Sweet? Play Etude!

Can't wait for the new product from Etude House:

Precious Mineral BB Cream All Day Strong
#1 Sheer Silky Skin (For Oily Skin Type)
#2 Sheer Glowing Skin (For Dry Skin Type)
#3 Sheer Flawless Skin (For All Skin Type)

This product's formula is upgraded and has added one more shade to the series.

Take a look at the color swatches applied to the skin:

Shade #1 is the lightest color and shade #3 is the darkest.

Etude House Korea did some skin test on the forehead:

On The Forehead
Top (Left to Right): Before and After Using shade #1
Bottom: (Left to Right): After Using #2 and After Using #3

On The Left Cheek

Top (Left to Right): Before and After Using shade #1
Bottom: (Left to Right): After Using #2 and After Using #3

On The Right Cheek

Here's the result: 

Beautiful, healthy and glowing skin!

Now, let's take a look at Dara's newest CF for Precious Mineral BB Cream All Day Strong:

Isn't she adorable? Hopefully this product would become available here in the Philippines soon!
