Biore UV Perfect Milk with SPF 50 (Blue)

When I started biking and my swimming lesson, I've been more addicted to sunscreens. Honestly, it's fine with me if I darken when I do outdoor activities but I hate the fact that I have to undergo sunburns. I'm using a great one from Biore products. This Biore sunscreen is one of my favorite for everyday summer use.

Fashion 21 Two-Way Cake

Fashion 21 Cosmetics is among the leading make-up brands in the Philippines since 1985. That's more than 3 decades already. Notice a change on their brand logo lately? The local makeup brand is known for its high quality and affordable cosmetics. I've tried their eye shadow, body glitter and some lip products but never get a chance to try their face products. Thankful to Fashion 21 for letting me review their two-way cake foundation.

They got 4 variants for their two-way cake:
  • Fashion 21 Two-Way Cake SPF35+ (Classic) PHP 180.00
  • Fashion 21 Two-Way Cake SPF35+ (w/ Milk Moisturizers) PHP 195.00
  • Fashion 21 Two-Way Cake SPF35+ (w/ Papaya Extract) PHP 195.00
  • Fashion 21 Two-Way Cake SPF35+ (w/ Tea Tree Oil) PHP 195.00
Two way cake means you can apply the powder foundation using dry or moist sponge. When it comes to Fashion 21 Two Way Cake, I prefer using the moist sponge for application for a smoother coverage. I normally walk almost 2km every morning going to work. That's 20-30 mins for me which normally makes any lady look oily catching her 8AM shift. When I used Fashion 21 Two Way Cake, even I oil up, I still got the fresh look when I arrived to the office. It feels like the powder and coverage are still intact to my face. It performs its oil control job well.

Forme Body Mist in Cherry Blossom and Magnolia

ForMe is a ladies fashion brand that believes in sweetness that is fresh and fun, which makes me love this brand so much. They made a great revamped of their style designs as well as the shop interiors. I just like to mention their fitting room set up, which is really fancy ^_^

I bought several clothing from them and also these Body Mist. I got Cherry Blossom and Magnolia.
Reg Price: Php 168

Product details from Zalora:
Carry the essence of spring in this Bloom fragrance by Forme. This lovely scent comes in a handy spray bottle that's easy to stow. Take this with you and use is day or night.
Can't check the back details because of this sticker and quite hard to remove. Body mists doesn't lasts longer than perfume so its expected to stay for only 1-2 hrs.
The bottles would probably last for 2-3 months for me. The bottle packaging was great, as well as the spray and cap. It's secured unlike other spray from the same price range. Both scents smells refreshing and lighter scents fits my everyday mood than using perfume. I prefer Body Mists since its lighter wear and quite airy.
Overall, I recommend this Body Mist from ForMe if you prefer light scents like me :)

Bench Paintbox Eyeshadow Stick

Our local clothing brand, Bench got their makeup line Bench Paint box for several years already. I recently found out this pretty eye shadow stick and it's made in Korea. I got mine in GOLDSTONE shade.

Product Description:
A creamy eye shadow that promises smooth application. Easy to blend with its sponge tip and leaves no crease.
Size: 4 gram / 0.14 oz
Price: Php 199

Where to Buy: Bench Boutique and online website: http://shop.bench.com.ph/

It comes with a sponge tip for smudging and blending.
My Thoughts about the Goldstone shade:
  • long wearing
  • glides on easily
  • waterproof
  • smudge proof when dried already
  • doesn't crease or fade
I recently posted an Instagram Video about this and check out the rub test. I didn't use any primers here. 

And this is how it looks when applied on lids.:
Because of this, I decided to buy another shade: ROSE GOLD. It was also a nice color however, it's not rub proof  when I tried it. Will try to post a separate blog post about it .

Have you tried any from the Bench Paintbox line? What's your favorite product from their line? :)

Love, Glenda x

Mesmerizing magenta, Ravishing Rose, Touch of Spice
I love all colors I got here. Reviews mentioned that Touch of Spice was hard to find shade. It's creamy matte when applied but this Maybelline variant dries to matte after a while.
  • When I'm tired of my dry liquid matte lipsticks, I go for this one. It gives the rigth amount of matte I need on my lips.
  • Smell is nice
  • I like the formula of this lipstick than other lines from Maybelline. 
  • All colors I got wears great!
  • It transfers a little 
  • Great color pay off
