Review: Charm Luxe Flat Top Brush

The flat top brush has definitely risen among the brush ranks for its versatility. It can be used for liquid, powder, and cream foundations or blushes (as a foundation and blush brush) to achieve the desired airbrushed effect, and even for contouring (serves the purpose of the angled contour brush).

And I found the Charm Luxe Flat Top brush!

Moisturizer Ramblings #1

It's a rainy, rainy day and I love it! Plus I got my certificates from the Philippine Red Cross for my Basic Life Support and Standard First Aid today! :) That's 1 out of 3! So all I have to wait for now is my IVT ID and nurse's license from the PRC!

Anyway, I have the urge to write a new blog post and this time it is about moisturizers. It's such an important part of my beauty ritual because dry skin just feels rough and looks unappealing and unhealthy. Besides, everyone wants to have baby-smooth skin, right?

So here are my current faves!
