Product Review: Fashion 21 Two Way Cake Foundation

Fashion 21 Two Way Cake Foundation

Before I share with you my Fashion 21 Two Way Cake foundation review, let me tell you why I chose to try this product. So, I’m actually kind of a newbie when it comes to makeup and I have yet to find the perfect foundation that works for me. Recently, I’ve been interested in exploring local brands and I’m always on a hunt for good-quality yet affordable products. So it was a real treat when I got to try all the variants of the Fashion 21 Two Way Cake.

I’ve been familiar with this brand name since I first started dabbling on makeup but I realized that I don’t really know much about them. Though, a quick Google search led me to their website where I read their brief history. It’s nice to know that Fashion 21 Cosmetics has been around since 1985; decades of history and experience means they’re doing something good and right. It’s also worth noting that the company helps two (2) youth and Christian-oriented charitable foundations; talk about social responsibility!

Alright, sorry for babbling (as always, heh), I had almost a month (almost a week per variant) to try out all the variants of this product. And it’s just about time to tell you how it worked on me.

Althea Turns 1! Happy Birthday, Althea Korea!


생일 축하합니다 Althea Korea! Nope, I haven’t turned into a fluent Korean (YET, haha!) but thanks to the Internet, I can wish my favorite K-beauty online shop a happy birthday, in Hangul! Hee. If you haven’t been following me on social media or watching my YouTube videos…what’s wrong with you?! LOL Kidding aside, I’ve been raving about Althea Korea ever since they launched their “webshop” to the Philippines. It is my one and only source of affordable and locally unavailable Korean beauty products. Why? Because they offer free international shipping and ships really fast!

Seriously, I love Althea and it is an honor to be invited on their first birthday celebration. YAS~

Instax and Crafts

Rainy days are here and while I love cozying up in a blanket with a book on one hand and a cup of coffee on the other; I really miss the fun Summer activities I had a couple of months ago. Especially, the Arts & Craft workshops like this one–Instax and Crafts–so let me reminisce, heh.

I attended Fujifilm’s Instax and Crafts event at Market! Market! last April. First, I rarely go there but when I was invited to this event, I just couldn’t say no. I can never say no to DIY events and workshops, unless I’m really unavailable, haha. And to tell you honestly, it was worth the travel!

Whenever I buy products, aside from examining its purpose and functionalities, I always look into where it is made in. For me, as a consumer, a product’s country of origin is also an indicator of its quality. I also tend to favour local and non-China items.

Today, it’s nice to see more brands and products in the market that are from other Asian countries. I also noticed the rise of Taiwanese products especially in gadgets and appliances; thanks to Taiwan’s government project called “Taiwan Excellence” which aims to strengthen Taiwanese brands’ awareness here our country.

Who’s up for another crafting workshop? If you’re into calligraphy or watercolor, you might want to join the Crafters and Scrappers Calligraphy and Floral Watercolor workshops.

ZPosts Manila was nice enough to invite me to this event and I’ll be attending their Calligraphy workshop tomorrow. They have very limited seats though and I’m not sure if they still have available slots. You may, of course, contact the organizers to inquire.
