Hello from the City of Pines!
The weather is perfect—cloudy with light drizzles and cool enough to shrug a jacket over your shoulders. It was just the getaway I needed and it gave me a chance to bring a few (okay, a lot) of new products to try!
I’m seriously thinking of staying here for a few weeks. So much fun to write when this is your view (and you have excellent WiFi). But before I start rambling about how much I heart Baguio, let me get back to my Top 3 beauty picks for this trip.
1. NARS Luminous Moisture Cream
It’s hydrating and it gives my skin a gorgeous glow—no foundation needed! This way, I don’t have to stress out about removing my makeup when I get back to my hotel late at night.
2. Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer
I’m hooked on the formula! It’s moisturizing enough and works as a good balm. The color is vivid and sexy (without being too OTT for a vacay) and it’s pretty enough to whip out when you’re retouching. As for the pretty purple shade? I’ll have to tease you and reveal it tomorrow for #GetLippieTuesday!
3. Nuxe Multi-Purpose Dry Oil
This works for your face, body, and hair. I didn’t want to pack too much for a three-day trip, so this was perfect. It’s light enough to add shine to my dry strands without weighing them down (no humidity = no extra volume). And since the weather is colder, I could use the oil on the areas that got extra dry like my elbows and just add a few drops to my NARS cream when I want something heavier or more moisturizing on my face at night.
That’s it, guys! I’ll update it with prices when I get back to Manila (sorry, I’m so bad at that!). I have to go because everyone’s waiting for me and moaning about me working, but I had to pop in and say hi to y’all first! If you want me to review anything here more thoroughly, just tell me in the comments.
Happy Monday!!! ♥
