MEMEBOX I'm Tic Toc Lip Cushion Velvet Swatches

I've recently tried the I'm Tic Toc Lip cushion velvet from Memebox and I just want to share the swatches I made for you guys. :)

I filmed a video swatch on my Youtube channel which you can watch below....


Or if you don't have the time to watch the view and you want to see pictures instead, I will also post it for you. :)


MEMEBOX I'm Tic Toc Lip Velvet Cushion Tint



They are available in 5 colors: #001 Dangerous Red, #002 Lively Orange, #003 Wicked Pink, #004 Modest Brown, and #005 Innocent Beige


Here are some lip swatches:





These lip tints are very creamy and smooth to apply. They dry down to a satin almost a matte finish but they are very hydrating. The colors are more on the coral side which I think doesn't compliment every skin tone. But if you love orangey/peachy colors, you will love these lip cushions!

Tax Refund in Korea

Recently my family and I had our vacay and went to Korea. I love everything about Korea! Their culture, food, people, and k-drama! :D Whenever  you visit Korea, you have to visit their famous shopping street in Myeongdong. I don't think you can ever visit most of the shops in one day so we had to visit 2 days in a row which made me do a lot of shopping! I just couldn't resist their freebies and promotion on makeup and skin care. <3

After you've done all the shopping, keep your receipts and tax refund form and bring it to the airport. For those who are lazy readers I will try to break it down as easy as I can. :)

STEP1:
Keep the receipts together with their respective tax refund forms. 



STEP 2:
Pack everything you bought in your carry on luggage JUST IN CASE customs at the airport checks it for tax refund, but make sure those liquids equal or more than 100ml are packed on your check in luggage because they aren't allowed on your carry on bags. In my case they didn't check and open any of my bags.

STEP 3:
Fill out the forms on your tax refund. 
  • Name
  • Credit Card details
  • Address
  • Contact #
  • Passport #
  • Date
  • Signature
STEP 4:
At the airport, after checking in, go straight to the tax refund kiosk just beside the customs declaration. When we got there there were people on each kiosk ready to assist you. Just present all of your tax refund receipts and they will scan it for you. 

STEP 5:
Proceed to Gate 28. There are arrows that says "Tax Refund" on the gate so you will not get lost. If I remember it right I think the tax refund counter is at the 3rd floor.

STEP 6:
Go to the booth and present all your scanned receipts and your passport. You can choose to get your cash back in USD or KRW.





All in all the process was easy and hassle-free. =) If you have any questions regarding the tax refund feel free to leave me a comment and I'll reply as soon as I can. I hope you find this post helpful. :)

Love,
Katrina

My Picosure Experience at Belo Medical Group

I have always been conscious of my armpits ever since I had an allergic reaction to a certain deodorant which made my armpits darker than the rest of my body. I have tried everything from whitening deodorants, magic cream, and IV glutathione (which I also got an allergic reaction). I am the type who want to see results immediately and I hate downtimes. Recently, Belo launched a new laser in the Philippines called Picosure. When I saw it on facebook I wanted to try it immediately! They claim that this laser treats hyperpigmentation, freckles, melasma, enlarged pores, and sagging skin. I have only had 1 session and I immediately saw results. I love that it helped lighten my armpits with no downtime. I can't wait for my next sessions & to finally have my desired smooth and fair armpits! I'm sure you are all wondering about the cost of the procedure, I only had my armpits done and it was 8,000php but since they had a 30% that time, I paid 5,600php. Here is the video of my experience and some clips from the procedure. I hope you find this post helpful and if you have any questions feel free to leave me comments.

Desio Lens Contact Lenses


I first learned about Desio Lens from Lena's blog (http://ladylonline.com) I loved how it looked on her so I decided to try & buy online from Desio Lens website (http://desiolens.com). I ordered last July and got my parcel 3 weeks later! I'm impressed with the fast shipment and updated tracking information. 



I ordered 2 boxes (1 pair each box) of Caramel Brown in my grade -3.25 & -4.00. Each box comes with a free case.


Here is a comparison on my usual Freshlook contacts in Hazel and Desiolens Caramel Brown.

And here are selfies of myself wearing Caramel brown. If you want to see how Freshlook looks on me, you can check out my previous posts. <3

My Hairshaft Salon Experience

Nowadays social media has been a great tool for advertisements. Celebs and socialites post products & people immediately want what they post! I have been following Ellen Adarna & she posted a photo of her gorgeous hair captioned the name of the salon. 
I viewed the IG page of Hairshaft & saw feeds of gorgeous ash blonde & brown hair! I have always wanted to achieve ash brown hair but I just didn't know how to do it. So after months and weeks of contemplating I have finally decided to make the change. I researched about the salon and found out they have a branch in Rob Manila which is the closest from my location. I sent a viber message to Jay one of their hair stylist and sent photos of my current hair and the hair I wanted to achieve. 

Yesterday was actually Jay's off but he said to txt him and he'll be there. So I went at the salon around 10:30am. Jay and Ariel assessed my hair and ask a few questions about the treatments I've done and what color I used. Then he asked me what color I wanted and I showed him this photo from his IG.
Then I was shampooed by Ate Liezl and they immediately went to bleach my hair. 
2 stylist were applying bleach and Ate Liezl was assisting them on parting my hair. It took a couple of mins and this is how my hair looked!

I immediately posted this photo on my FB and IG and I was surprised that there were people who liked the blonde streaks haha! After washing they applied the color to make it ashy.

I availed the hair treatment so after washing off the color Ariel applied the treatment to my hair while Ate Liezl massaged my hands. It was such a pampering experience I even had my head and back massaged. 

Here are the photos of my new hair!





And this is Jay my hair stylist. The total cost of my hair is 11,000php including the treatment and the shampoo and conditioner with keratin. I love my new hair so much and I would definitely go back for a retouch after a few months. Thanks instagram & hairshaft salon for making ny hair this beautiful!
