I am an avid fan of Gigi Hadid and when I heard that she will be having a makeup line with Maybelline I was so stoked! To be honest if its someone you look up to, you just buy it and that’s how influential they are -That’s normal guys. The fact that it is Maybelline, a trusted quality makeup brand and Gigi Hadid, she keeps it real 🙂
To my Filipino readers, it is not yet available in the Philippines. I got mine from (instagram: @makeupbar.ph), they ordered it from the Ulta Beauty in the U.S. I know some of my friends would say it would be available in the Philippines soon but I just can’t wait. In the states it cost $29.22, converted to pesos P1500. It’s a bit pricey from the usual Maybelline line. So I have mix responses on each but overall it’s good.
I’ve been travelling since a kid so I kinda developed routines especially during long haul flights. On my take this palette is helpful and light to travel – It’s already the size of your basic essential kit. You don’t have to pack the separate ones which makes your kit bulky. Someone told me it reminded her of the 90s, all makeup in one palette. This is enough if you are just basic when it comes to make up. I personally think the products they placed are good for all skin types – good job, Gigi.
In terms of the weight and how much you’ll be getting, If you use it like super everyday, it won’t last long. (I’ve noted down the weight in grams below). I heard this collection is just limited edition, You can also bring the palette in your everday “lakad”/events if you aim for basic look. Basically I see the point, It’s called jetsetter palette dedicated to the wanderlust that need to travel light and hassle free.
Things I may add, if I only bring the palette – Powder, Foundation or SKIN TINT, Eyebrow pencil (KILAY IS LIFE), Eyeliner and my favorite lippies. If you are an ultimate beauty junkee you may have your setting spray, cheek tint and primer.Powder for me is a definite MUST when you travel to touch up. Other essentials I bring for skin care, small cleanser, toner, moisturizer(with SPF would be lovely), sunblock, hand lotion and face mist. If you are in business class, they have these basics in the kit except sunblock and the face mist (just some airlines have).Good thing lip balm is included in the palette and you’ll also get it in business class essential kit.
PACKAGING: “Gigi shares her favorite makeup essentials to look fresh” – Jetsetter Palette
Covered in a hologram sleeve, then main thing that holds all the products come in a Trendy nude color and the components of the palette have been noted on both, it comes in:
Concealer: Light & Medium
Lip Balm: Nude and Pink
Eyeshadow: Highlighter, Base, Crease and Liner
Brushes: Eyeshadow and Powder
CONCEALER: 2.16 grams
Review: Coverage is GOOD and very light on the skin. Personal Tip: This is a tip I got from a vlogger, use the light concealer for the under eyes and darker shade for your pimple marks and blemishes. So I applied this just to use both of them. But I did use the light concealer since I am medium tone under the eyes and my marks, it was okay. Another thing, if you screw with any makeup like you overdo it or missed a line, concealer is the trick and if any redness of the skin during a flight use the concealer. Just to cover up for a while if there is no reaction.
LIP BALM: 1.0 gram
Review: Ofcourse we all know lip balm moisturizes the lips. The nude and pink gives this subtle and dewy look to look fresh with pigment and color. Personal Tip: Sometimes I add lipgloss or balm on my cupid’s bow (lip) to get that fresh dewy look like a highlighter. -Apply small amount and dab it (Hope that makes sense).
EYESHADOW: 3 grams
L-F Without flash, WITH FLASH Top to Bottom: Eyeshadow Highlighter, base, crease and liner
Review: I like the HIGHLIGHTER (white tone, shiny and glittery) , BASE (nude color) AND CREASE (brown) gives that more natural subtle look. I am not good with the liner eyeshadow which is black so I give it to the PROS. I mess up with the waterline of my eyes. Another use, when you feel getting that smokey eyes go for it! Personal tip: The highlighter will definitely be a good cover up for the growing hairs in your eyebrows.
L-F Without flash, WITH FLASH Top to Bottom: Blush, Bronzer and Highlighter
Review: It’s so NICE and PIGMENTED!!! From the entire palette this is what I am raving for but the amount you get each is the downside if you use it everyday, It would finish easily. Basically I see the point, It’s called jetsetter palette dedicated to the wanderlust that it should be small. Another downside kinda dusty, so lots of tapping but I have a tip (under personal tip). If you have a better solution, comment below. Which I think is normal? HAHA sorry, I am not a PRO.
Personal opinion, I suggest the bronzer should be bigger that the highlighter because the use is for the entire face to contour. The 3 gives a warm tone look. For morenas/ brown skin this is perfect! It would also look good on light and dark skin tones also. The bronzer is like what you get for contour, At first I thought it was contour but it was indicated bronzer. The highlighter comes in rose gold which I love!
Personal Tip: I mentioned it was dusty using the brush, HOLD THE BRUSH IN HORIZONTAL, DO THE BRUSH STROKE SIDEWAYS IN ONE BIG SWIPE GOING OUTISIDE, then blow the excess. In all fairness the outside that surrounds the products doesn’t stain much so it’s still presentable after so many strokes and uses. In tagalog, “HINDI SIYA MADUMIHIN”. You can dust of the dirt away, It will depend how you use it ofcourse.
For cheek illumination, you can use the eyeshadow highlight. On applications the usual – First, bronzer, under the cheekbone, sides of the face, jaw line to cover the double neck and nose. Highlight starts, above the unibrow line like a branch like (hope that makes sense), nose line, cupids bow and a line under the lips
MASCARA 4.5 ML
This is from the Classic Maybelline line, The COLLOSSAL Volume Express in classic black. It’s just pops your eyes after from a long haul flight. In terms its a product trusted already 🙂
BRUSHES Comes in two, powder brush and eyeshadow brush.
In terms of convenience its good because most of the time you would use the fingers for application especially for the concealer and lipbalm. I am concern with the end of the eyeshadow brush that looks like a lip brush or its for the eye lining IDK. For a normal person the brushes use is indeed flexible. The powder brush use for the blush, contour and highlighter is dynamic in use. Both brushes are soft and easy to clean. I’ve seen beauty vloggers that they prefer using their own big brushes – It’s a personal preference.

As a nursing graduate it is essential that I always have emergency medications in my bag whether I am travelling or just a regular day in Manila. It is because you never know what can happen.
Unilab, in promoting quality supplements and medications who’s initiative is to have good health among Filipinos by having the right care.
UNILAB’S UNITED HOME TRAVEL KIT dedicates to those who love to travel and what essentails may be in need when you are on the road or in long haul flights. They are easy to pack, you can put it in your mini medication box or a pouch. These are usually over-the-counter medications.
CEETAB DAILY ASCORBIC ACID – VITAMIN C
Indication: To prevent and treatment for Vitamin C deficiency
It’s basically to increase your immune system especially when you’re in places that you are not used to the temperature or you don’t know what viruses or bacteria you can encounter. Also when you lack sleep, it decreases your immune as well. Just to be on the safe side.
This is to prevent nausea, vomiting and dizziness during flight or sea sailing. Usally I take this 30 minutes before take off. Before I used to vomit during flights because the scent of some airlines (I was young back then). Now I know 🙂
SODIUM BIRCARBONATE (SUPRACID) EXTRA STRENGTH
I really need an antacid in my bag ALL THE TIME. I used to have Acute gastroenteritis and sometimes I get acid when I’m stress, ate a lot of oily food, “nalamigan” because of the cold environment or before my menstruation. So I recommend (since its not on the label) you take it after meals with warm water to take to smooth the stomach.
If you are using sodium bicarbonate as an antacid, it should be taken 1 to 2 hours after meals, with a full glass of water. If you are using sodium bicarbonate for another reason, it may be taken with or without food. Do not take sodium bicarbonate on an overly full stomach.Apr 15, 2017https://medlineplus.gov/druginfo/meds/a682001.html
Though it is not recommended to take loperamide by some doctors because you have to let go of the toxins but remember to REHYDRATE. Ofcourse when it comes to extreme measures and emergencies its better to have LOPERAMIDE when you have diarrhea especially

Our recent trip to Hong Kong wasn’t actually planned, It was my birthday week and we decided to book a day before our flight. We decided days before my birthday because of family commitments that would fall near my actual birthday. – It’s fine, This is the second time I got to spend my special day abroad with my family. The first was at Dubai (4 days after my birthday), that was my first post as a blogger and I found out that I passed the board exam.
Well weeks before I’ve inquired to Cathay Pacific and Philippine Immigration, I have a concern regarding my passport, if I can travel to Hong Kong because my passport is less than 6 months valid – It is okay BUT it depends on the AIRLINE/IMMIGRATION here in the Philippines they may weigh in your situation it may be travelling with family for as long you have documents that you are employed or that you have no plans to stay there more than intended.
THOUGH According to IMMIGRATION OF HONG KONG – In general, all visitors to Hong Kong must have a passport that is valid for at least one month after the period of their intended stay in Hong Kong. However, documents issued to stateless persons must be valid for a minimum of two months after the period of intended stay. Please contact the Immigration Department for further details.
Hong Kong may be linient compared to the Philippines, but I suggest call the airline first.
Hong Kong is already common for Pinoys to visit since its VISA FREE for PINOYS and its like 3 hour plane ride. What makes this blogpost different I would sort it out by using Hong Kong’s MTR (train) map as a guide . It is very convenient to use their transport system. It’s okay to take a cab /Car service if you are in groups. Starting from the airport you can travel comfortably.Well we were in Hong Kong for just 3 days so I guess this is just the basic – I’ll definitely come back to explore.
TUNG CHUNG (Tung Chung Line – orange) – the famous cable car and the Buddha Mountain (Not sure). Unfortunately when we went there the cable cars were under renovation. So SAD 🙁
Sunny Bay (Tung Chung Line – orange) – This is your STOPOVER for you to hop on the train to Hong Kong Disney Land. You’ll love the Mickey Train
TIP: to buy CHEAPER tickets, head over to Central station there is a mall where all the Filipinos gather and look for an agency and avail tickets. It’s like 250 HK dollars I think. That’s why make sure you spend your entire that at HK disneyland because its your money’s worth. Ride all the rides and know the schedule of shows. 8PM is the famous fireworks display which is my favorite among all!
Tsim Tsa Tsui (Tsuen Wen Line – red ) – The shopping capital for the masses and a good walk to go to Harbour Bay. A friend recommended that I try KFCs egg tart (DELICIOUS).
Mongkok (Tsuen Wen Line – red ) – the famous WOMEN’S NIGHT MARKET and SNEAKER STREET. If you guys are looking for affordable beauty products they have BONJOUR everywhere in different locations.
Central (Island Line – blue)- From our hotel at CAUSEWAY BAY this was our connecting train station to Tsim Tsam Tsui and MongKok (Red Line – Tsuen Wen Line) and Airport Express (Aqua Green).
Ocean Park (South Island Side – Yellow Lane) – Connecting from Admiralty (Island Line -Blue & South Island Line – Yellow)
Causeway Bay (Island line – blue) – This is the high end shopping capital and good places to get desserts For hotel, I highly recommend the hotel we stayed MINI HOTEL. It is a budget friendly minimalist boutique hotel – for great deals book at www.bookings.com

London Calling! Visiting the historic Big Ben, Kensington Palace, State of the art Churches, Tower bridge, the gush of the undeground, wax figures at Madame Taussauds, buying good deals at Tesco and luxury window shopping at Harrods – a tick on my bucketlist at the age of 15. I can’t recall if we rode a double decker tho. It was easter of 2009 when my family and I had the opportunity to visit across the pond from our 8 hour trip coming from Muscat, Oman. My recall(-ing) may not be that vague anymore but seemingly it was a eye- opening cultural experience to see that side of Europe.
At the strike of 5PM some malls close and the pubs stat to open at 6PM. At 7PM, still daylight and it feels like 3 or 4 in the afternoon. I’ve got some trivia about London by watching Mary-Kate and Ashley “London Calling” like the bathroom is called a “loo”, then I remembered asking a friend where’s the comfort room (very pinoy of me) they ain’t familiar, next time kasi washroom kasi HAHA. The question came back to me why pinoys call it “Comfort room”, I said I don’t know either. Speaking of washroom, apparently there are some washrooms that have condoms available at the dispenser – I can’t recall that well (maybe not all). Yes, they are liberated.
Brits are always on the go and strict on time. At the airport all of them were rushing against each other at the immigration. I learned staring is rude and its just mind your own business. They strictly follow the scehdule of the buses. Taking the bus, you just have to follow a certain number to get to your destination. You’ll see a lot of older people still active and strolling with their trolley.
Its the churches and museums that gave me an awe! Wishing I could go back to explore since I’ve aged and appreciate the #wanderlust life. Maybe visit Harry Potter!
That’s why I want my readers to experience the same experience I had, and by joining Nailaholics mechanics this can be your chance!
By simply availing any of Nailaholics’ pampering packages starting from June 1 to September 30, 2017, a customer is entitled to a raffle entry for a chance to win a getaway vacation of 5 days and 4 nights to London for two”
