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?

Loreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation Review

Of all the make-up products I have in my vanity, the most number of products goes to foundations. I tend to splurge more on foundations above anything else. Because I believe in good base alongside with good skin to be able to have a decent looking make-up. Agree?


In this blogpost I will be reviewing one of the most raved foundation from Loreal which is their Infallible Pro Matte. I am not sure the exact date of release here in the Philippines. I got mine from a make-up group several months back. They said this one is a dupe for Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able foundation.

Coverage: This one has medium to full coverage. I don't like layering this product so much though because it tends to cake on my face. I am good with medium coverage as it just makes my skin look flawless.

Product when blended

Consistency: The product is not runny nor watery. It blends really well when used with beauty sponge as well as brush. But if you want flawless looking face, I suggest you use a beauty sponge.


Longevity: The product lasts long for 4-6 hours especially during summer days. However, what I don't like about it is that the product tends to get blotchy after blotting. You can touch up with pressed powder to be able to last at least 6 hours or more. This is when you are in extreme hot summer conditions.

Scent: It doesn't have that strong scent (ie. rubber, chemical) which I really appreciate it may be quite overwhelming as you are applying this as the first layer on your face.


Price: This product belongs to the affordable spectrum and if you want a cheaper alternative for the brands Mac and Marc Jacobs, then this one is the right product for you. I got this for P500+ and retails for $12.99 in Ulta.

Overall: This foundation claims to be matte so I suggest to moisturize your skin really well especially to those who have combination to dry skin as it really tends to settle on the dry patches of your face.

That's it for my review. Have you tried this one yet? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.


For reference, I have combination skin and NC 37-40 in Mac.
