Althea Year-End Party Box Unboxing!

Y'all know it's party time with this year end party box from Althea! 2016 has been a slay year for Althea (and for us Philippine people who have been saved by the heavens since they started ops here in Q1 2016). They started off with a stellar launch, followed by their birthday celebration in July, and of course, the introduction of their curated boxes from Korea. Althea is a network of multi-country teams, and they have a Korean team curating what's hot in the K-Beauty scene for these boxes. It takes time to be able to forge long term brand deals, so these boxes are a good way to introduce people from all over SEA in a short span of time. And I think it's also a good way for them to be able to gauge which brands actually are receiving warm reception in each Althea territory... 

Weeelll those are just my management thoughts lah so let's get onto the box!

My Céleteque x BDJ MEGA Unboxing

This is craaaaaaay. Craaaaaaaay. Serious kind of craaaaaay!!! 

It pays to be a BDJ Bella because you really just don't know when treasures like this will pop up! I am sure everyone in the BDJ system got the heart attack of their lives last year (yeah December is soooo last year like ugh don't me) because for Php1480, they got ALL these Céleteque items you see in this flatlay PLUS OTHER ITEMS which could no longer fit the flatlay visually coz it'd already look toooooo crowded by then. I have personally bought BDJ Elite boxes before so I had an idea that this box was gonna be the slay my queen level it is.

I Tried Althea's App!

Hear ye, hear ye! Althea has finally launched its app! 

I know traffic is deadly and much of our lives are spent on the road on our mobile devices, and Althea must know about that, too. The Korean beauty conglomerate has recently launched its app to make shopping easier and more accessible for mobile users. Whether you need to window shop while on the road, browse what's new in Althea, or need some retail therapy to heal your frustrations from traffic, this app is for you.

What's Inside The Maybelline 2017 Planner? (My 100th Maybelline Post!!!)

Happy New Year!!!! Happy 100th Maybelline blog post to meeee!!! This is a special post as this is my 100th Maybelline post in a mix of press releases, reviews, tutorials, and events for the past 4 years! Whew!!!! If my tally is right this is the first brand wherein I've reached the 100 mark. The brands I especially like are mostly at the 50 something post mark, so that's why this truly is a milestone. 

I personally see it as a milestone because reviews aren't easy to do. Swatches aren't easy to produce. It also takes a certain level of maturity to be able to give cohesive reviews. In the span of 2016, with all (as in ALLLLLL) the products that Maybelline sent, I really feel that the brand has been instrumental in helping me hone my swatching, reviewing and flatlaying skills.

Maybelline's Christmas Gift To Me

Happy New Year everyone! I thought I'd do this as my first post for this year as Maybelline is one of the brands that I really love. Brand love aside, I think it's more of a great love for the people who work on the brand, that's why this brand is so close to my heart.   

Sooooo for Christmas, they got me and four of my loved ones theeeese SUUUUUUPER. CUUUUUUUTE. MINIATUUUUUURE. PERSONALIIIIZED. HOLIDAAAAY SOCKS!!!! They asked me like waaaay back to name 4 loved ones I'd like to give a small token to for the holidays, and I didn't really think much of it until the package actually came. Mama was squealing with delight when this came. I thought that it must just be so cute that she was squealing with delight. And yeah it is thaaaat cute.
