Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day. What About Sugar-Free Coffee?

TSM Review: EB Advance Matte Lipsticks


Matte Lipsticks is a thing these days. Local and international brands release their matte lines and if given a chance, I would like to try most of it. Haha! The product that I will feature here in this post is a local brand most of us love. It is the EB Advance Matte Lipsticks. They released matte lippies together with their creme ones. I am not sure though how many shades they have available but I know enough that you can pick something that will suit your fancy.


I am glad that there are local products that can produce good quality lippies which are at par with international brands. Those who are in a budget this is their best option rather than opting to buy fake make ups which can be very dangerous as we do not know the hidden ingredients to it.

Left: Amethyst Rose Right: Red Twilight

Pigmentation: With one swipe, you will get the color you need. The color pay off is very good. However, there is a very slight tugging to it most especially if you didn’t moisturize your lips properly. This is a matte lipstick but it is not-KISSPROOF.

Packaging: It comes in a plastic bullet tube much like the MAC lippies but this one is in white color. For me it is very clean however, when mixed with other make up products, the packaging has a tendency to get dirty because of its white color.

Longevity: This product can last up to 6 hours without any touch up if used with a lipliner. However with constant eating and drinking, it could only last for 4 hours and the inner will totally fade. But this lippie can be good with touch up unlike other matte lippies that you need to remove the entire product on your lips.

Availability: This is a local drugstore make up that is widely available even in groceries nationwide.

Scent: Slight candy scent which is not overwhelming. 

Price: Price point is very cheap and good for those days when you need a little dose of color in your life because that’s what I did. J

What I don’t like? None that I can think of.


This product is highly recommended because the price is affordable and of good quality. This is good to those who are on a budget for make ups like mommies like me.
