The news on the aftermath caused by Haiyan is so heart breaking. There’s literally nothing on the streets but tons of debris from houses and fallen trees and some dead bodies. Visayas hasn’t recovered from the nasty earthquake that hit last October and yet another super typhoon devastated the area yesterday. I have relatives in Panay that were affected - some are okay, but some I haven’t heard much.
Extending thoughts and prayers are good, but doing some relief would really mean a lot. Check this link on how you help them get back up again and start anew: http://www.rappler.com/move-ph/issues/disasters/43300-reliefph-victims-typhoon-yolanda-help
Long overdue post, I know. ‘
Anyway, here’s my review of Missha’s Perfect Cover BB Cream;
but before we get to that let me give you a background of what is BB Cream.
‘BB cream stands for blemish balm, blemish base, or beblesh balm. It is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage.’
So basically, it is a makeup and skin care in one.
Honestly, I am very picky when it comes to BB Cream; cause whenever I use one I always end up having breakouts. So far the only one I embraced is the BRTC Jasmine Water BB Cream; but since BRTC is not available locally, I tried to search for another. I really don’t know what to try because the market offers a wide variety of BB Creams, and I don’t want to spend my money on a fail one. Thus I searched the net and I heard good reviews of Missha Perfect Cover; also, my friend recommended this to me so I gave it a try.
Sadly, it has paraben and mineral oil.
What does it claim?
“The M Perfect Cover BB Cream makes your skin tone clean and natural by concealing blemishes with excellent skin coverage. It is a multi functional makeup cream with blocking UV rays, whitening and wrinkle care effects and simplifies makeup formalities. Its moisturized application with sleek W/S texture makes sleek skin tone by supplying moisture and nutrition at the same time.” (Yes thank you for English Translation)
Here are my swatches:
Long picture-heavy post ahead!
So last October I joined the WHEN Conference as sponsored by NAUCP; thus, I was able to visit the extolled province of Palawan. Kara (@knrmsnrd) and I arrived at Puerto Princesa at 6pm; we immediately headed to our hotel (which is just a song away haha) after we checked-in a staff told us that there will be no registration and the conference will start tomorrow thus, the remaining time are ours to spend.
Rather than being a lazy bum, we thought of exploring the nearby areas so we asked the hotel staff’s recommendation.
and it is this place~
Puerto Princesa’s own Baywalk!
The place is really nice and clean! You can’t see a single cigarette butt or a candy wraper around!
The park has a good area for biking, jogging, and strolling; and unlike Manila’s baywalk, the place is less crowded and more tranquil.
As we stroll around we noticed that there’s a lot of stalls selling stuff like fish ball, isaw, shakes, and others.
and since it’s already dinner time we decided to sit down and eat at one of the stalls.
Actaully, it’s like a resto-bar; I forgot the name but they have a good variety of ihaw ihaw that you can order from fresh seafood to your good ol’ intestines~ xD
After we had our dinner, we continued to stroll around the area and we came across this local carnival~ PERYA!
The perya is actually a staple in most Filipino festivities, particularly during town fiestas celebrated in honor of the local patron saint. I’m not sure if there’s a fiesta during that time or it’s just forever there lol. Of course, there’s the chubibo or the ferris wheel (the fastest one I’ve ever encountered haha) and the “casino”-thingy.
