Kanebo Kate Lipgloss in PK-6 and Katre Restaurant

Hello beautiful bloggies! It's already February and it's the love month so I decided to do a post fit to use for Valentines day. Lovely pink lips courtesy of Kanebo and mouthwatering dishes by Katre Restaurant...


Sleek tube casing that looks chic and sturdy

As some of you know, I have a penchant for pink lipsticks and glosses. And this one deserves some extra credit. I have been using this for quite sometime now and I have to say it does a great job in giving me pretty polished pink lips or my "triple P". It can be worn alone or over any pink lipstick as it's nice sheer shade will easily blend and enhance any lip color.



PK-6
93BK

Chose the PK-6 shade
I hate it when they use numbers or letters instead
So hard to memorize!
If i had it my way i'd call this Prismatic Pink hehe! ;-)




There's someting nice and unique
with this applicator
It contours nicely on my lips
The wand is pliable and bends accordingly 
to every "nooks and corners" of my mouth


Sheer and shimmery...

The color speaks for itself, it even looks better IRL!
It adjusts to my natural lip tone
The shimmers looks brilliantly pretty when hit by light
It is glittery in a pleasant way
Gives sort of an iridescent effect...



(^worn alone)
So get ready for lovely, moist and kissable looking lips :-)

I would love to try other Kate lipglosses from Kanebo as this one fairly impressed me. Though the lasting power is average, a few swipes here and there won't hurt! It has a great consistency that doesn't feel too thick or gooey. It is less sticky than the regular lipgloss which is actually the primary reason why i was bowled over by this. It is also super moisturizing so even the driest lips will feel drenched and hydrated. At the same time, it doesn't have a strong scent, so no need to worry if you are too finicky or sensitive with smell. The best part is it is very affordable! Sorry, i forgot the actual price as i bought this several months back but i do remember it being cheap. Hehe!  :-) For a Japanese drugstore brand, this quality product is great value for your money. I give it two thumbs up! 




Moving on, i rarely write about foods or restaurants but since Valentines day is coming, i figured why not post one of my favorite restos in Manila. They serve the most amazing Mediterranean-fusion dishes that will surely tickle your tastebuds. I love coming back to this place, the food is just sooo divine! A true fine dining experience that never fails to leave my spirit and tummy happy! :-) So if you're on the lookout as to where to bring your date/hubby this month of hearts, Katre is definitely a nice/cozy place to have dinner with your special someone.


Seared Tuna...my all time favorite
It has black ink squid rice-Yummy!
The food presentation is superb too

Roast Chicken
Delicious!
