Finally got to see the BenCab Museum yesterday! I could stay here for days :)

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!

Working from Hill Station today!

My top 3 picks! And also, working from Hill Station today (had a yummy breakfast here and decided to camp out for a bit).

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.  Continue reading

I was thrilled to see this color on their roster because I’ve been seeing a lot of mint green in the latest S/S 2016 makeup collections. I don’t know if I can apply that color on my lids (like they did here with NARS), so I’m glad I get to incorporate this trendy beauty shade here on my digits.

What polish color is on your nails now? Tell me, tell me! ♥

I love all the fresh shades!

I love all the light and fresh shades!

“The colors look very fresh and pretty because of the soft shades like rose, apricot, and mint,” share François Nars. I didn’t get a sample of the mint, but it is a pretty dominant shade in their campaign.

Do you see thee mint on the lids of NARS muse, Mariacarla Boscono? I actually like it!

There are bolder shades in the collection, like midnight blue and warm red, but I’ve been digging natural-toned shadows lately. Shall we explore them? A closer look + smudges after the jump! Continue reading
