I was soooo surprised when this organic night cream that I used actually delivered! I’m not wearing any makeup at all here!!

Organic?? Can you believe it?? I swore off organic products for my face years ago when switching to VCO caused a horrible cycle of cystic acne (I used it for a year to no avail). So when I decided to try this organic line, I was wary, scared, and doubtful. But guess what? It obviously worked, and now, I’m hooked!

Sparkle Bites: 15 Best Madonna Songs—Throwbacks Included!

When I was growing up, one of my favorite singers was Madonna. Conservatives rallied against her for various things (like burning crosses in her videos), but all I knew was that I enjoyed listening to her music…and the fact that everything she did was so scandalous! I mean, you gotta admire a girl who lets out her inner crazy and owns it!

And she's coming to Manila!!

And she’s coming to Manila for the Rebel Heart Tour!! Who’s watching her concert?

I super want to go, but I might have to work that weekend and the ticket prices are no joke (find out how you can score free ones at the end of the post!). So for now, I’m just going to enjoy watching her music videos (throwback time!!!) and make a mini playlist of all my favorite Madonna songs. Check them out:

1. Papa Don’t Preach
It’s the first Madonna song I ever heard! Classic!

 
2. Material Girl
This one’s just fun! Haha, and it’s one of the best songs to sing to during a karaoke sesh!

 
3. True Blue
I always think of my first crush whenever I hear this song. Hi, Jonathan! :p

 
More songs on my #throwback playlist + deets on how you can score discounts (and free concert tickets!) after the jump! Continue reading

I’ve been in the beauty industry for years and I still enjoy listening to tips from more experts. There’s always something to learn!

Celeb makeup artist, Jigs Mayuga shared his tips about BB cream. Beauty guru, Agoo Bengzon, shared her 3 skin basics.

Now when it comes to makeup, they also talked about how the “No Makeup Look” trend is here to stay. The real trick to pulling it off? You have to take care of your skin.

And that's where this gorgeous kit comes in! It was filled with lots of Pond's and Happy Skin goodies, so we could practice our skincare and (no) makeup skills.

And that’s where this gorgeous kit comes in! It was filled with all the skincare and makeup basics you’ll need from Pond’s and Happy Skin!

What really got everyone excited was when they announced that Pond’s and Happy Skin Cosmetics are collaborating! For every P700 purchase of Pond’s products at Watson’s, you get a FREE mini lipstick from Happy Skin—and it’s really super cute, you guys. Want to see what it looks like? Let’s do some IG stalking!

Soo cute! I'm a fan of the Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me line (reviews here and here), so this is a tote-friendly treat!

Ooh…cute, right? I love small lipsticks (I don’t like carrying bags so much), so I can just stuff this in my pockets. Follow @PondsPh on Twitter for more deets!

I’m a fan of the Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me line (reviews here and here), and really, their shades flatter Pinay skintones so well. I heard that some hardcore fans and beauty girls even collect all the Happy Skin lippie shades. So…in case you’re one of them, get ready to shop because Happy Skin created a new and exclusive shade just for Pond’s! It’s totally perfect for the #NoMakeup look, too.
