Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream Review

I've always thought that my trusty hand cream can also take care of my dry cuticles, but I was wrong. I didn't know there's a different product designed for that.  Yeah, maybe I was living under a rock all along.

Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lip & Cheek Mousse...

My heart got broken the other day.  I wasn't able to hold back my tears that I ended up crying while waiting for a cab going home. I was so hurt and disappointed that when I got home, I cried my heart out. I was asking God, "Why me?" and "Why do you have to let me feel this way?" I know a lot of people have it worse but at that point, all I know is that I'm hurt and that I cannot take another disappointment in my life. I cried myself to sleep which is actually a good thing because sleep makes me feel a lot better. I woke up hours later still feeling sad but a bit more calm. I'm still hurting and though I can't promise that I'd stop hurting, I will try my best to do something about this situation that I am in now.  I really hope things will get better. If not, I just hope I'd be able to accept it without being hard on myself.

Anyway, I'd talk about it maybe soon (or maybe not) but for now, let's talk about something that makes me forget the not-so-good things in my life.  

When I first got my hands on the first Happy Skin products, I remember secretly wishing that they come up with more products soon.  I specifically wished that they come up with a lip and cheek tint and my oh my, they did! Actually, what they came up with is far better than what I hoped for.

Pucker up with a power product that gives you double-duty beauty! The Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lip & Cheek Mousse is a lightweight product that can be worn both as a lippie AND as a blush! Wear it on your lips, or dot it onto the apples of your cheeks and blend for the ultimate flirty finish! Long-lasting and easy to blend, this 2-in-1 makeup must-have gives firmer, smoother, and better defined lips & cheeks to kiss!
I wished for something and they came up with something better!  That's how much they love me! Hahaha, I'm kidding. They knew that women love to multitask and so they want the same when it comes to their makeup.

Makeup Look: Amped Up Neutrals

And just like that, it's Sunday once again!  While my loves back in PH are still enjoying their weekend, us here in this part of the world are already back to work. If you don't know it yet, work week here in the UAE is from Sunday until Thursday and for weekends, we have Friday and Saturday. 

For today, let me share with you another (boring) neutral makeup look.  I tried amping it up with false eyelashes, which by the way is becoming a must-have in my makeup looks these days. For me, gone are the days when wearing falsies are only for special occasions. Falsies here are so usual with most women anyway and yes, I no longer have judgmental people around here when it comes to girls with makeup.

How To Get Perfectly Boiled Eggs Each Time

Good day, my loves!  How's your weekend so far? 

Since it's a weekend, let me indulge you in a non-makeup post.  Do you love eggs?  I do!  Be it fried (sunny side up, scrambled), poached or boiled. Heck, I even love balot! If I am craving for some easy comfort food, I will cook 2 packs of Lucky Me Instant Canton and throw in 2 boiled eggs.  OMG, just writing about it makes me hungry.  Now, when it comes to boiled eggs, I like mine to be half-cooked. You might say, what's so hard about getting medium-cooked eggs?  If you can always come up with such, I salute you. In my case, I always end up with either soft or hard-boiled eggs.  I know you can time it, but I'm more of a visual kind of person. I want something that will let tell me "Hey, time to get me outta here!"

So when I came across a post of a friend on Facebook about an egg timer from Daiso, I made sure I get one the very next day. By the way, I love Daiso. Even when I was still in PH, I frequent that store.  In PH, prices usually start at Php88 while here in Dubai, it's at AED7 (or 8?) Prices can be cheap, just make sure you get your money's worth. What I mean is that, make sure that you won't be able to get the same product at a lower price outside Daiso.

Anyway, here's the egg timer I got from Daiso:

 I honestly shrieked out of excitement when I saw this.  It's definitely one Eureka moment for yours truly!

Kiss-proof Your Lips with Rimmel Provocalips 1Hr Kiss Proof Lip Colour

People say that one should not expect. So when things go the way you want them to be, you wouldn't end up being disappointed, hurt, or angry even. But I think it's human nature to expect or at least hope for something better. In as much as we don't want to make ourselves believe on something good that will  happen, because we don't want to get disappointed just in case they don't, we still do.  And no matter how much we say we won't get hurt in case things don't work on our favor, we still do.  Geesh, is it just me or sadyang lang talaga maging normal na tao?

I've expected a few things over the weekend, and well, I ended up disappointed.  I don't even want to elaborate about it but if there's one thing that didn't fail on my expectations, it would be these Provocalips lipcolors from Rimmel.
(let's just talk about makeup na lang, shall we?)

I went gaga over the brand's Apocalips Lip Lacquers last year (review here) that I got myself  some colors and my girl friends back in PH as pasalubong when I went home for a vacation.    The pigmentation is amazing and the staying power is so good but since I have this bad habit of licking my lips I've always hoped for a lip color that will really last. Something that won't fade, won't bleed and is transfer-proof and ahem, kiss-proof. There are a lot of brands that offer long lasting lip colors but though I have liked some of them because they really last, I haven't found a brand that my lips will be really comfortable wearing for hours. So when I came across this new line (not really new though since they have been out in the market for months) from Rimmel, I knew I had to check it out. So I did.

Rimmel London Provocalips 16Hr Kiss Proof Lip Colour
(AED 47/each at Boots)

Unlike the Apocalips, these come in a dual-ended packaging. One end has the lip color while the other end has the shine-boosting clear gloss that is also designed to lock in the color.

I wanted to get all the colors, I think there are 8 available here in the sandpit, but decided to just get three.
