FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: BB Creams with Great Coverage

I have a bunch of BB and CC (and even a ZZ) Creams to test out and this FMF query reminded me to do that! Our question for today is from Vanessa:

Hi TBJ! 
I just wanna ask what's the BEST BB CREAM that you can recommend, the one that can cover and hide blemishes and dark spots. Your soonest response will be greatly appreciated

Hi Vanessa!

Thanks for the question! I've tried around 15 BB Creams already and so far, these are the ones that stand out as not only do they cover light to moderate marks and even out skin tone, they have great texture too! Find out my top picks after the cut!

Fan Di Fendi Blossom EDT: Japanese with an Italian Twist

I'm seriously considering going to Japan on March next year for the Sakura festival-hopefully, my bank account agrees! Some of my friends who went would only say one thing about the entire festival: "It was fairy tale- like and nothing short of romantic." Oh dear, romance and fairy tales, they're my thing. If I'll have it my way, I want someone to propose to me under the dreamy Cherry Blossom trees! (Uhm, Hi, BF, are you reading this post? LOL!)

Cherry Blossom is a symbol of joy and femininity and this iconic flower from Japan inspires the heart of Fendi's newest fragrance, FAN DI FENDI BLOSSOM. This light, cheery, and youthful fragrance is like a bouquet of spring flowers that instantly lifts up your mood!

Revlon ShadowLinks Review + Swatches

Here's a review on Revlon ShadowLinks.

Price: P275.00/per cartridge
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Revlon counters in leading department stores and drugstores


If Inglot has Freedom Palette, Revlon has ShadowLinks. Now here's a more affordable way to customize your eyeshadow palette while satisfying your love for Lego in between. (If you love Lego like me!)


Shadow Links is the newest, customizable eyeshadow palette by Revlon. This line offers 30 shades in frost, matte, and glitter finishes.

Each individual cartridge can be attached on its sides (but not on top). I'm loving the size of the pan because it's so, so compact-I can bring three to four colors with me everyday sans the size and weight issues.


No budget for Inglot's Freedom System or Shu Uemura's customizable eyeshadow palettes? Then click READ MORE! :)

OOTD: My most favorite color

For someone who blogs about colorful stuff such as makeup, it seems a lil' odd that I love Black. There's something about Black that's beyond classy-to me, it evokes power, intrigue, and strength, some of the ideals that drive me. More often than not, you'll see me in Black because I feel like "me" when I'm wearing this color.

I was a lil' out of the zone yesterday so I wore a Black ensemble to get back in the game and it was the best choice I made. :)

Estēe Lauder Modern Muse: A celebration of the modern woman

They say that life is hard nowadays, but I'd rather live in the now where women are freer than in a previous time where we were were viewed as mere sexual objects, suppressed, and never appreciated beyond our talent in washing the dishes and cooking food for the family. If a man fails then, the family does so too. But in today's society, if a man fails, then there's always the modern woman to save the family.

It takes a lot to be a woman-from child- bearing to raising a family and even to running a company-and Estēe Lauder appreciates this through their new fragrance: Modern Muse EDP.

After the break, you'll find out why this fragrance is a celebration of you!

And now, a dream of mine is slowly unfolding: Happy Skin is slowly (but surely) expanding their Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies line!

Benefit Cosmetics Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm Review + Swatches

Here's a review on Benefit Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm in Lolli Balm, Bene Balm, Cha Cha Balm, and Posie Balm.

Price: P1,000.00 each
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in the following Benefit Cosmetics branches: Greenbelt 5, Shangri-La Mall, Rustan's Makati, SM MOA, Trinoma Mall.


Sometimes, I feel that I already have a ton of lip balms to last me a lifetime, but when I saw Benefit's new Hydrating Tinted Lip Balms, I thought to myself: "Hey, I could accommodate four more!" LOL. Truly, I say, a Beauty Blogger can never have enough makeup! :D

Benefit's Lip and Cheek Tint's are one of the greatest (I'm a fan that's why I'm saying this) tints in the world and it's just fitting to have a whole new range inspired by this classic-I like it when brands expand their classics because you'll never go wrong with them!


This new product is an ultra moisturizing lip balm made with Sodium Hyaluronate and Mango Butter to condition and soothe lips. Designed to be sheer yet buildable, you can layer it on to get a considerable color coverage or swipe on top of Benefit's Lip and Cheek tints for a glossy tint. It comes in four variants: Bene Balm, Cha Cha Balm, Posie Balm, and Lolli Balm.

Benefit has never failed us again in the 'Cute Packaging' department-hands down, these are the cutest lip balms I've seen to date! They can even pass off as fat, neon pen highlighters, but in playful packaging! :D
