For my eye shadow, I picked the light and dark brown and blend it together.

Flawless Creamy Concealer

Flawless Creamy Concealer

Packaging: Stylish 6ml clear tubes with the usual applicator tip. | Available colors: Vanilla, Ginger Honey and Mocha - My favorite shade? All - because you can use it all in different areas of your face and basically you can just mix shades and create a new shade from it. 

Product Quality: Designed and Made in Korea | Althea Flawless Creamy Concealer works so well on me. I actually use it as my base because I'm really liking the result when it sets in a semi-matte finish! It's so natural looking and covers very well!

Value for Money: Php200 each for a 6ml tube is not bad at all. 

Rating: 4.5/5  - It's a good buy because of the minimalist looking tube, with an applicator wand. So no need to pour products somewhere else. You can apply it on your face right away and for hard to reach areas like eyelids and areas around the nose. Blendable by fingers, brush, and sponges. Super liking the Semi-Matte Finish too! 

Watercolor Cream Tint

Watercolor Cream Tint

Packaging: Stylish 4.5ml clear tubes with easy to glide applicator tip. Available shades in Plum, Strawberry, Peach and Marron Cream - My favorite shade?  Plum and Marron Cream.

Product Quality: Designed and Made in Korea | For everyday use: a single application is ok for me, but sometimes when I'm in the mood for a bolder look, I go for 2 or 3 coats giving me a leveled up look in an instant. Plus this Watercolor Cream Tints from Althea keeps my lips moist and are long-wearing.

Value for Money: Php260 each / Php1040 set

Rating: 4.5/5  - It's a good buy because of the stylish packaging, easy applicator tip, long-wearing creamy form lip tints, and the super hydrating effect because of the 5 layers of Hyaluronic Acid is a win-win! 

Spotlight Eye Glitter

Spotlight Eye Glitter

Spotlight Eye Glitter

Packaging: Stylish 4.5ml clear tubes with a fine applicator tip. | Available colors: Gold light and Pink light. - My favorite shade?  Gold light.

Product Quality: Designed and Made in Korea | The Gold light variant is looking more like silverish while still in tubes but once you applied it, turns into gold. Yay Magic!? Just kidding, but it does! That's why I like it even more. I love pinks but I think I can rock this Spotlight Eye Glitter in gold light much better than pink.

Value for Money: Php300 each for a 4.5ml tubes might be a bit pricey compared to other eye glitters in the market. But this little thing will surely give you a spark of joy and will indeed make your eyes sparkle too. 

Rating: 4.5/5  - It's a good buy because of the compact tube, fine applicator tip for precise application but can also be blended by fingers or a cotton bud. It's long-wearing too, plus contains a moisturizing gel and smudge free because instantly creates film protection from sweat!

Sunrise & Moonrise Eye Palette


Packaging: Boxed with a pretty design of flower art. That I kinda wished that the very palette case design is the same, but sadly it's not. 15.5g 8 Expertly chosen shades in a Stylish Black Eye Pallete Case. With High-Quality Mirror and just enough size to see the upper face. No Brush or Applicator Included.

Product Quality: Designed and Made in Korea | This is a collaboration between Althea and Indonesian Singer-Actress Bunga Citra Lestari, BCL. Also, this is Althea's first ever eye-palette.

Value for Money: Php1780. Its pricey for an eye palette but once you worked on with it, experiment, and get to know the "looks" you can do with this eye palette, you'll learn to love it. A day to night palette in one could be fun!

Rating: 4/5  - 8 workable shades, in a stylish black casing. I was a little bit worried for my eye palette to get scratches, so I always put it back on its box or maybe, later on, will have a scratch free pouch to store it in. I like that this doesn't come with an applicator simply because we all have that favorite eye brush to work on to and extra is not necessary. And some apply eye make up with fingers. too so that's it.

Extra: Skin Relief Spot Film Gel | Priced at Php240
This cutesy tube works like magic. I tried swatching it and it created a super thin film - seals the skin imperfection for a while and makeup application will be easy and smooth.



Overall, this is Althea's first ever makeup line and I must say, they nailed it!
My top picks would be the Flawless Creamy Concealer in Honey and Mocha, 
Watercolor Cream Tint in Plum Cream and Marron Cream, 
the Spotlight Eye Glitter in Gold Light.
and the Deep Wine Red and Light brown shades in theSunrise & Moonrise Palette.

5 Things My Kids Are Excited About This Summer

What are your kids up to this summer? For the past years, our family's way of spending the summer vacay is Travelling. I am an adventurer and  I like going to places I've never been, trying out new activities and even delicacies. That's why when summertime is near we are all excited about where we are going as a family and what activities we are up to next. But as a mom, I need to consider some things, especially when traveling with kids in tow. So, I made a list of things we love to do as a family this summer and this is already #TeamBorneaKids approved.

 5 Things To Do This Summer

5 Things My Kids Are Excited About This Summer
No. 1. Beach Getaway & Waterpark Adventure

A trip to the Beach is what I think the top favorite among us, Filipinos. Beach getaways going to Batangas, Bataan, Zambales, Romblon, Iloilo, and Guimaras - #TeamBornea Checked!

Aside from swimming, we love island hopping, snorkeling, kayaking, jet skiing, and banana boating too. We love waterfalls, rivers, and waterparks as well. 

Tip: Extra precaution is a must. Don't leave your kids unattended especially around the pool and beach area. And you have to be minded of sun protection, insect bites, jellyfishes and safety gears.

No.2 City Tour
Visiting Historical Landmarks, Parks, Museums, and my personal favorite - Old Catholic Churches brings as much joy too. A trip to memory lane while learning is such a great experience for parents and kids. You can also include going to Zoo's, Botanical Gardens and Farms.

Tip: Be  Alert at All Times. Keep both eyes on your kids and never let them out of your sight especially on super crowded places. Also, it's a good thing if they know what to do if ever they got lost. As for my kids, I told them to never wander alone and stay where they are and don't talk to strangers.

No. 3 
Food Trip
Our FamBam loves to eat! So when summer comes we hunt for "what's new" and  "must try's" restos, kiosk, food trucks, and food bazaars in the city or wherever our cravings lead us.  

Tip: Check the food and utensils yourself first. I'm so nosy -charot! But seriously I scan the food, sniff the food and taste the food. And there are countless times that I spotted a near to spoiling carbonara, funky smelling soups, and odd tasting desserts. And yes check and smell the utensils too. Some are amoy ipis!!! yuck!

No. 4 Staycation
Staycationing is a not so new idea anymore but still, it is a nice experience. Ideal for us busy parents who want to unwind for a while. If the Hotel has great amenities it's a super win for me, because we don't have to go out and look for things to do.

Actually, this option is our frequent choice for the holidays, birthdays, and other celebrations. Just make sure the place has kid-friendly amenities, and an awesome lighted pool is a must.

Tip: Before booking a Staycation Check the hotel first for amenities, and promo offers. And also be minded of the windows, balcony, railings, and even the stuff at the bathroom. As for me, I refrain from booking a room with a balcony not that because I'm afraid of heights pero parang ganun na din + safety precautions.


Daddy O and I have decided to include something new to our usual plans for the summer. It's not a beach destination, nor a waterpark to go to but it's something that my kiddos went wild after hearing the about the news. It is that we both said Yes and we're up to support their interest in exploring their chosen crafts this summer. May it be a fascination to artsy-fartsy crafting,  a certain interest in a school subject, getting into sports maybe, or to even enroll at a talent camp that they want to be in. 

Last but definitely not the least, and something new on our list is...
 joining Summer Camps.

Promil Four i-Shine Talent Camp 7,

No.5 Summer Camps
Actually, even when they were still small, we already noticed what our kids' talents and interest are. It just shows on their work and they were even more vocal to what they hope they might be when they grow up.  For Example My eldest Charles, he shows interest in Science, like astronomy and chemistry and also he's into Arts and Crafting plus Origami. He dreams of becoming a Pilot or an Astronaut. As for Ricci, she is onto Arts, Music, and Modelling. She likes Ballet too and Yes, she wants to be a Ballerina someday. While for Chloe, she's into Hip-Hop and Modern Dancing and she also likes Fashion shows. But she likes to be an Artista, G-Force crew, or Momoland member daw. Oh! divahh? Way to go my baby bunso!

So when I was invited to the media launch of the Promil Four i-Shine Talent Camp 7, I said yes right away and came with my  10-year-old daughter Ricci. Too bad that my little Chloe was not feeling well that day, she was looking forward to meeting GForce pa naman. Buti na lang I was able to record the G-Force segment for her to see when we arrived at home.

During the media launch, Ricci is on a non-stop Q & A if it's ok that she'll join the camps. CAMPS with an 'S' for she likes to join Arts, Theater and Ballet daw. Ay Wow!!! Multi-Talented and ate girl ko?

So, this year, we are about to Nurture the Gifts of our kiddos.
We want to try something new, something that can help boost their confidence too.
Also allowing them to engage in activities that will further hone their talents and personalities. 

I think it's about time for us to support their dreams and honestly, I'm hoping that it's not yet too late for that gesture.


But for now, let's make a Balik-Tanaw

The Promil i-Shine Talent Camp is now on its 7th year. But has anyone of you wonder like I do to what's up with the previous i-Shiners? How are they now? or do they still shine in their chosen careers? Read more to find out.
