I'm sure you've been asked already, but if not, let me ask you. If you can have one super power, what ability would you like to have? I know the most common answers would be to fly, which is also my answer. Some people would like to read minds but I always make them reconsider because I think it'd be a problem you know, if you can read people's minds. I think some things are left beautiful as a mystery too so you won't find me asking for that ability. 


However, have you considered wanting the ability to do anything? I mean, anything. . . I can imagine it being overwhelming and dangerous. Well, wouldn't that make a great movie?



Gravitating towards the disturbingly unimaginable, “Chronicle” reckons what teens are capable of when given such endless overwhelming powers.   


20th Century Fox brings Josh Trank’s debut feature film to the big screen – “Chronicle,” like so many of us, the lead teen actors portray regular everyday people obsessed with chronicling their lives, however mundane – or in their case, however extraordinary.   For Andrew, Matt and Steve have stumbled upon something beyond their – or anyone’s – understanding.  Their discovery leads them to acquire powerful telekinetic abilities; in graphic novel parlance, they have superpowers.
            They’re now capable of, well, almost anything.  They can move objects just by thinking about them, crush cars through force of will.  They learn to fly…the ultimate wish fulfillment.  Then things get dark.


What would you do if it happened to you?  What would you be capable of? Those are the intriguing questions posed by “Chronicle,” a new film unlike any you’ve seen before.  It’s a superhero movie that’s not really a superhero movie.  On the surface it belongs in the relatively new sub-genre of “found footage” or “P-O-V” films, but it turns their conventions on its head.  It’s thrilling, yet relatable; rich with creatively conceived and executed camera work and visual effects, but grounded in reality. 


So, what would you do if you suddenly obtained abilities beyond comprehension?  Would you don a special suit, fly off, and battle evildoers?  If you were a teenager, the likely response would be: hell, no.  You’d have a blast with them, pull elaborate pranks, and maybe exact revenge on those who’ve wronged you.  Maybe those powers would amplify your less noble qualities.  Or worse.


“Chronicle” opens February 2 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Although I'd love to think that love is a year-round thing, you can't blame me for mulling over the idea just because it's almost February. With that, let me share with you my holy grail of red lipsticks. This is just so amazing, I don't see anything wrong with it. It's from Guerlain, it's from the Christmas 2011 collection and it's the Rouge Automatique 121 lipstick.

I was supposed to upload a photo of the tube while it was brand new but I can't find the file I hosted. I've been having problems with photo hosting actually. See I've used up Blogger's hosting services and my photobucket monthly bandwidth has been, should I say, always full so I fear that sooner or later I might have to pay for it! Unless, well unless you have recommendations. What photo hosting site would you recommend?

Anyway, I've been using the Rouge Automatique lipsticks the whole holiday season because it's the best red lipstick to paint the town red with. I sometimes top it with a glitter gloss to make it more festive especially because last Christmas season was all about sparkling beauty, but this coming Valentine's month, I'm excited to just whip this baby out as it is: a fierce red color.

Besides, red was not made the color of love and passion for nothing.

Before I share with you swatches of my red lipstick HG, let me share with you my other reasons for letting myself fall entirely in love with this tube. Keep on reading and you'd find my swatch for Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick in 164 at the very end of this post..


I love Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick in 121 because I love how timeless the gold case is! I have two Rouge Automatique lipsticks, thank you Sigrid! and just look at how timeless and glamorous they are against natural light!

I love Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick in 121 because the tubes are conversation pieces. Despite being "timeless", the gold casing is also very hip and modern. Why? Don't you notice how the lipstick case has no cap? Well, judging by the name, you're right to quickly assume that the lipstick has an automatic mechanism, similar to your loved auto-liners, which make them so convenient to use. These tubes are great for those who love to travel and attend events as these lipsticks don't take up much space in your kit and you won't also have to worry about losing a cap and damaging the lipstick because, voila, it has a modern "push-up" case mechanism.

Here's where the bullet pops out.


I love Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick in 121 because it doesn't stain my teeth. It isn't messy to work with and I just don't like how some red lipsticks are just all over the place!

I love Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick in 121 because during the day, when I want to tame it down, I can use the lipstick as a stain and I end up enjoying a just-bitten look. The lipstick's just so versatile.

I love Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick in 121 because it glides on smoothly and makes my lips look "younger and healthier". Doesn't it annoy you how some lipsticks end up emphasizing your cracked lips (if not also causing your lips to crack) so you end up looking beat and disgruntled? Well, the Guerlain Rouge Automatique even leaves a very moisturized and noticeable softness to my puckers I end up smiling more often and more comfortably.

I love Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick in 121 because it's very pigmented. I would let the photos speak for themselves. These photos were taken indoors but with natural lighting peeking through my window.

My bare lips (and what other people find to be a mischievous smile)...

Me wearing Guerlain Rouge Automatique 121. 
See, I told you. It leaves a very healthy plump lips to smile with. My lips are not perfect but check out how it healed and even hid any signs of cracked lips.

Me wearing Guerlain Rouge Automatique 164. For those who don't like to wear red too often, you could try out this pinkish-red shade instead. Funny how it's surely red as a tube but every time I wear it, I notice warm pink all over.

So, what do you think? If you're curious to try these tubes yourself, you can visit Guerlain counters at Rustan's Makati and Rustans Shangri-la. If you do visit the counters, don't forget to also try out their famous Meteorites collection.

REVIEW: Guerlain Rouge Automatique

Although I'd love to think that love is a year-round thing, you can't blame me for mulling over the idea just because it'...

They say it takes 21 days to make a habit. Judging by the 30 days of 2012 that passed, I am confident to say I'm happy with my new habit. The habit of appreciation.

There are soooo many things in life that would leave us disappointed and although these "things" are definitely not the type you would like to get on an everyday basis, disappointments serve a purpose of their own. They make realizing your fulfilled wishes all the more exciting!

I got sick the past week, and that's one of my disappointments lately. I had so much planned and now I have myself catching up with things. On the brighter note, I love living on the edge. I love always chasing rainbows--or beautiful things as my blog title suggests.

Now let me share with you a product I have been using since last year! Ever so often I post about products so soon out of excitement but for these particular items, I figured to take my time because I was not immediately floored by how it performed at first glance; but there are a number of reasons why I kept "sticking" to it like honey. Let me share with you my thoughts on the Majolica Majorca Glass Trick Honey Plump Neo glosses.

You might remember me talk about Majolica Majorca here. To give you a brief idea, here's what Majolica Majorca is all about (from their fan page). Do like their page for product updates, contests and of course lovely media finds like this wallpaper!

Like a magic spell hat makes your wishes come true in an instant, these cosmetics are amazingly effective. They are serious products, carefully formulated with selected ingredients. All of them are packed with the knowledge and know-how to make your dream "transformation" come true."MAJOLICA MAJORCA!" Make your wish and it'd be granted.
As for wish granting, the glosses from Majolica Majorca Glass Trick Collection are all so delightful because as much as they seem like your ordinary glosses (only smaller, I can't help but notice how exceptionally petit their lip gloss tubes are); they aren't your plain janes. In fact, the Glass Trick collection was quite a magical ride if you ask me. I got to try these absolutely divine products. If you'd like to learn more about the eyeshadow palettes and if you'd like to see proof on why their Lash Expander plus is such a rave-worthy product, please visit this feature. From the Glass Trick collection, my favorite would have to be Honey Plump Gloss Neo #22, which I'd be talking about more below, and the Limited Edition Lash Expander Plus in Midnight Blue! I never thought my eyes could sparkle as much as it does when I am using Midnight Blue.

Glass Trick Honey Plump Gloss Neo are the new shades of crowd favorite honey glosses. They come in #22, a clear gloss with a hint of subtle pink sparkle; and BE133, a lovely light honey-toned gloss.

The consistency of these glosses are quite thick and heavy BUT it's surprising that they don't feel sticky or too warm on the lips. At first I thought my lips would have to "sweat it out" because the gloss felt thick, but it didn't disappoint. It is the perfect kind of shine. It doesn't look like you drank cooking oil before stepping out of your room. The most important feature of this gloss however, despite its very pretty sparkling finish is its plumping effect. Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Gloss Neo did not disappoint. I thought it was a promising gloss at first glance, well it was. It kept its promise and gave me sexy full lips... and you know how I love having pretty lips.

For real-time Majolica Majorca updates, check out their twitter page here.

Swatches in different lighting. Photos were cropped but not edited. Hope these shots help you decide which gloss to check out, or maybe buy both! Majolica Majorca is available at Watsons.

First, my lips without anything.

Check out the sparkling effect of gloss #22


I love how full my lips turned out after using BE133

What Majolica Majorca products have you tried? Or... would you like to try them out?

Lately I've been suffering from episodic "feelings" moment. Few months ago I heard my friends talk about "feelings night", pretty much a type of friend-date where you talk about feelings (not necessarily bad feelings). I liked the idea. I mean, as we become older and busier and stuff, how often do we bother sit down and just ask someone, "how are you feeling today?"
I saw this from a blog I just visited yesterday but lost her url. If you're that blogger, do comment so I can tag you! :)

I am suffering that "My Heart Will Go On" fever, not really because of the song or the movie, but the feeling of it. I feel like my heart should go on especially since earlier today as I was getting ready for work a read this very moving quote on saying yes to life (and to real events). I took it as, picture this, accepting any event, no matter how good or bad, as the reality or as the now instead of ignoring it and pretending it would get better--and by "get better" morph into the kind of real that we aspire for.

So I figured I should share some of my random yet to be shared happy moments. What could be happier than opening packages wrapped in pink duo-chrome foil paper!

The wrapped boxes contained these fragrances. Presently, I have the FCUK and the Harajuku Girls bottle as my "ongoing scents".  The Lanvin bottle has long been used up. The CK bottle is with my mom and the Prada one, I'm not sure if it's with her, my grandma or my older sister. I don't see it at home.

With the fragrances is one of my pink blushers, a "Pick Me Up Pink" energy blush from Pixi. :)  Who is Pixi beauty?

The blush I got had a fancy the box. Like any Pixi product, it's so fairy tale-esque.

One should ask, what's an energy blush? Well, according to Pixi info, it's an energy blush because it's an awakening blush and highlight duo. Essentially, the mixture of the two colors should make you look more hyped and lively.

This is a shot of the compact under bad lighting. I figured I should shoot it like so so you could check out the gold yet very simple Pixi logo. I like it. I don't like logos that take over a product's packaging or design.

Here's a shot of the compact as it is opened. It shows the mint green case as it should be minty and I hope you're all adoring how lovely the blush color is! Don't even get me started with the mirror design. :)

For those who are curious, yes it comes with a blush brush. In fact, it comes with a fan brush that at first I wasn't a fan of but upon repeated use, I realized it's the perfect shape for this compact. It has it's own drawer too! How fancy.

I dipped my finger on the pan and found that the highlighting powder (the lighter one) is a bit chalkier than the pink blush (the actual "awakening" blush color). I thought of it as a bad thing at first but upon repeated use I figured why it's a different consistency. The blush was my kind of pigmented and my kind of subtle shimmer while the highlighting powder helped subdue the color and make it more natural--plus it was also easier to dust on my face because it was captured by the fan brush as a bit more loose powder compared to blush which had a proper blush consistency, enough for precise application.

I got lucky to find a way to capture how the blush is in action under two important circumstances: strong lighting and low light. It's a very light color and I like if for days when I want to fake a feminine glow (cause ironically, I don't have that girly-girl vibe going on).

These products were purchased from Strawberry Net few months back. Would I repurchase, maybe not. I just wanted to try it out and I didn't fall in love with it entirely. I do love how it's so easy to work with though. It's a no-fuss blush duo.
