Something New: Happy Skin Power Pout Lip Lacquer and New Shades of Moisturizing Matte Lippies

It was just 2 months ago when Happy Skin Cosmetics came up with their editorial-worthy Moisturizing Matte Lippies in collaboration with Preview Magazine.  The lippies are such a hit, even my friends back in the UAE have been asking friends from PH buy for them.  In my case, those lippies are up there on the top of my priority items to buy. The lippies are the perfect nude and deep red for me. And would you believe I've been wearing Hot Stuff almost everyday!?  Nakakaloka, that's how I love that lippie. And yes, like what I've mentioned in my post, Too Cool knocked off MAC Peachstock as the #1 nude lippie in my book.

Now, Happy Skin Cosmetics is back to grant the beauty wishes of women yet again. This time, with more shades of their Moisturizing Matte Lippies PLUS their new lip product with a stunning high-shine finish without the heavy feel, the Power Pout Lip Lacquers!

Our (Late) Lunch Experience at Lugang Cafe

I've been seeing Lugang Cafe for quite some time when I was still based in PH but never really gotten the chance to try it.  I admit I am not a big fan of Chinese cuisine except when my occasional craving for authentic dimsums strikes, and so thinking that Lugang Cafe is just like any other Chinese restaurant, I don't really pay attention to it whenever I go looking for some place to eat. 

Last Monday, after mine and my Mama Wheng's follow-up checkups with our respective doctors, my family and I went to SM The Block to look for a place to have our (late) lunch. It was already past 2 that time and this restaurant was the first that I saw upon entering the mall. My tummy's already growling so I took it as a sign that I don't have much time left before I would start nibbling on somebody.  Hahaha!  Seriously, I wasn't really expecting a lot when we entered the restaurant. I just knew I need to eat, stat! And boy, I'm glad we did give this place a chance to prove itself.

Lugang Cafe

Right after we seated, I asked the dining attendant what cuisine they offer and he replied, "Taiwanese." I don't remember having tried Taiwanese cuisine in the past so I told myself that it was indeed the right time.  

The restaurant's interiors are so modern and elegant.  It was so unlike any other Chinese restaurants we've been to in the past. Actually, had I not known that it serves Taiwanese cuisine, I would have thought it's an Italian resto. The place really looks so sosyal and even their dining attendants are dressed neatly.  Eto pa, all of them looks good. I mean everybody is either maganda or gwapo. Not sure if it's the restaurant's requirement or just purely coincidence.

Want to command attention to your nails?  Then check out this 6-shades Neons Collection from Essie for 2015:

Definitely not for the faint-hearted, the shades in this collection are all about being loud, standing out in a crowd and fun, fun, fun.  I'm not sure about you, but the colours are just so summer-y!  I know it's raining almost everyday here in Manila but if you still want that summer vibe, then go and paint your nails with these. Not sure what colour to wear? Why not wear them all then?

Available shades:

Happy Skin X Preview Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippies in Too Cool and Hot Stuff

I know these lippies have been out for almost two months now, but what the heck, I still want to share my own thoughts about it.  When I got back here in PH, these lippies are the first ones that I looked for when we went to the mall. These are limited editions and after seeing swatches online, I just knew I had to get my hands on them.  

Preview X Happy Skin Lippies
 Preview X Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies 

Preview Magazine collaborated with Happy Skin Cosmetics to come up with these editorial-worthy, limited-edition matte lippies for their 20th Anniversary.  I'd say editorial-worthy because the shades aren't really for everyday use (and for the faint-hearted, LOL!)  But if you don't give a damn on what people would think about you on why you are wearing attention-grabbing lip colors such as these, then go ahead. 
Kebs sa mga pamatay na titig!

Madonna The Rebel Heart Tour Is Coming To Manila

Madonna in Manila

The Queen of Pop is coming to Manila! Yes folks, it's confirmed, she'll be in PH for a ONE NIGHT concert as part of her Rebel Heart Tour.  

My reaction?  WHYYYYYYY!!!???  I mean, why not now that I am here!?  Sniff.  I can book another  ticket to fly back in February but what if our plans push through this year?  If that happens, I won't be able to travel. Of course our plans are MORE IMPORTANT but to see Madonna in flesh performing her ultimate hits is also a dream of mine. Oh well, I guess I will just have to see her in another time.  Hopefully she'll come back to UAE soon.  If that happens, I'll be the first one to buy a ticket. And a VIP ticket at that! Choz!

Her much-awaited concert will be held at the 12000-seater MOA Arena in Pasay City  on February 24, 2016. OMG, just thinking about being able to attend is already giving me goosebumps. I am imagining that a lot of people attending will be in their best Madonna costumes.  Heck, I would do too! Oh, if only. (sigh)

There are a lot of "rumours" circulating that VIP tickets are priced at almost Php50k, but that is yet to be confirmed as tickets will only go on sale starting this Sunday, July 26 at 10AM through SM ticket outlets.  

Tickets on Pre-sale:
For members of Icon, Madonna's official fans club, they will receive a special coded to access the pre-sale tomorrow, July 21 at 10AM.   
For citi cardholders, you are also eligible for a pre-sale starting July 22 at 10AM until July 23.

(Sigh) I really am broken-hearted. Korny man, but my god, I grew up listening to Madonna's songs. I think I still I know most of her songs by heart, yung mga "classics" ha!? My favorite? Shempre pa, the walang kamatayang "Material Girl," "Papa Don't Preach," "Like A Virgin," "Crazy for you," etc. Lost na ako when it comes to her recent recordings.   She was my Mom's favorite. Was, since she likes Shakira more daw ngayon. Me? I'll forever be a Madonna fan.  Oh yes, pagdating kay Madonna, may Forever!

So, are you attending? And if you are, care to share what your outfit will be? Ako (if only), I'll come in an outfit like this one:
