Thank you!


I want to share with you a collection of multipurpose mineral powders from a local brandย  in the Philippines that offers mineral make-up. It’s been upfor a number of years now. It’s none other than Ellana!

Honeybunch – pale brownish peach frost

For me this is more matte than frosted.The shade is very close to my skin color you can barely see it.

Inspiration – golden beige frost

I asked for a neutral e/s that’ll brighten up my eyes. This was the one suggested to me. And well, it really does!

Siren – yellow golden brown shimmer

One of my favorite! The perfect blend of yellow, gold and brown.

Brilliance – pure bronze satin

The description says it all. I don’t know any other way to describe it.

Embrace – golden coffee brown high shimmer

This is a nice brown shade. It is really high in shimmer and I love it!

(swiped only twice)

Ashen –ย  ash gray frost

Definetly ash-grayish! I swiped too much that’s why it appears darker. There’s also a hint of blue shimmers.

Dream – white frost
Well, it’s white and it’s frosted.

Sensational – iridescent white gold (white shifting to gold) highlighter

This is my first ever Ellana MMP! I love two tones too!

Twinkle – bright sunny gold frost

I first got a hold of this when Ms. Shen of Shen’s Addiction gave me a sample way back last year, even before Twinkle was in catalogues. (Thanks Ms. Shen!) This color spells happy and gay!

Felicity – pale gold with green shimmer

Not as bright as Twinkle. The green shimmers compliment the shade well.

Polished – khaki green shimmer

For me it’s more like a green gold-ish shimmer. A very wearable green shade.

Posh – pale pink shimmer

This is the pink version of Dream.

Adore – iridescent pink frost (white shifting to pink) highlighter
Another favorite of moi! Just look and you’ll see why!

Desire – light coral pink frost

This is a nice everyday color that says, “Hey! My eyes are pretty but they’re prettier with e/s on!”

Crush – flower pink frost

Flower pink with pink frost (Yes, I’m getting redundant. I know… ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Belle – baby pink frost

For me it’s like a matte baby pink shade with hint of blue/white shimmers.

pale plum frost
Just think about your “MyGel pen in Metallic Violet” that you owned in highschool.

Femme – pale plum frost

Just think about your “MyGel pen in Metallic Violet” that you owned in highschool.

Joyful – lavender with pink shimmer

My topmost favorite! It has everything I ever wanted! It’s:

  • lavender
  • pink
  • shimmery
  • two – toned (because of the pink shimmers)

Here’s what I think about Ellana’s Multipurpose Mineral Powders:


  • very pigmented
  • lasts long (if you apply it wet, or with cream e/s as base, or with an e/s primer)
  • a little goes a long way
  • it’s mineral makeup
  • it’s multipurpose
  • it’s great for my very sensitive skin
  • can be also bought online
  • very affordable (more than your money’s worth!)
  • made locally (love pinoy!)


  • it can get messy since it’s powder
  • unlike pressed eyeshadows, you really need to have a base or primer before using it

Before I forget…

I asked Ms. Coney what their bestselling multipurpose mineral powders are and here’s the list that she gave me:

  1. Ethereal
  2. Raven
  3. Dream
  4. Posh
  5. Honeybunch
  6. Polished

You should come and visit their sales office at Room 402 West City Plaza, 66 West Avenue, Quezon City. It’s just a ride away from SM North EDSA. Their personnel are very kind and accommodating. They will be of great help. You can also check their website here and their facebook account here.

I have some other multipurpose minerals that aren’t included in this post. I will share it next time!

Ellana is L-O-V-E!


Etude House Mini Haul!

Thank you!


First of all, I want to let you know that I became a converted Etude House Princess because of their endorser, Dara (She’s as pretty as her personality!), and how wonderful Etude House accommodates and takes care of their customers (both in the shop and Facebook page). ๐Ÿ™‚

My Etude House Mini Haul!

Pearl Extract and Pepero. Yey for freebies!!!

Here’s a close-up of the things I purchased:

French Manicure Tip Guide and Essence Mask Collagen

French Manicure Tip Guide (28php) – I really need this because I’m so bad on doing French tips. And these are dead cheap!

Essence Mask Collagen (Tightener) (58php) – Haven’t tried this yet. They have several variants of face masks to choose from.

Nymph Aura Shine Lips in Aura Pink

Nymph Aura Shine Lips in Aura Pink (478php) – I really like how sheer this one is. It makes my lips look healthy and naturally pink. Does not dry my lips though it does not last super long.

Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #17 Pink

Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #17 Pink

Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #17 Pink (278php) – It’s pink with gold shimmers which I love! I can’t help but pout my lips when I have them on. Haha! Not sticky and smells like candy. Looks so good on the lips!

Wanna Be Perfumed Syrup Nails

Wanna Be Perfumed Syrup Nails (328php) – I bought this because the nail polish to be used as base is so pretty! Tiny colorful hexagon glitters in a silver micro shimmer base. Color wise, the selection is not quite unique. You can easily find colors like this, BUT…

Nail polishes out from the box.

It’s really pretty once you apply it on your nails. The 3rd bottle doesn’t show the exact color, though. Swatch it, it’s pretty! And it does have a faint smell of perfume!!!

Wanna Be Perfumed Syrup Nails (back of the box)

It has instructions on how to do your nails at the back of the box. Characters are not in English but I assume everybody could understand the illustration. Each bottle is also numbered at the bottom so you’ll know which is which.

Tried doing it and it was so easy!

Looks almost the same no?

Sample picture is very reliable. It’s the same as the actual result.

Wanna Be Perfumed Syrup Nails on my nails!

The 3 nail polishes compliment each other well. The gradient like effect is really nice! Though it’s packed with too much glitter, it doesn’t look exaggerated that you’ll be blinded by all that glitter (if you know what I mean). For me, it’s a natural pink french tip with a punch!

Isn't it pretty!

I am very happy with all my purchases! Honestly, I was so excited the night before I had a hard time sleeping. haha! I will post swatches of the lipstick and lip gloss next time, ok?

Etude House = EH = Extreme Happiness! ๐Ÿ™‚
