    I am not going to refute the whole essence behind the no makeup makeup because it is what it is, natural-looking, effortless, #ikindawokeuplikedis look. But I am going to take it up a notch by using all-natural makeups which allow the skin to breathe. I'm talking bare minimum y'all.

    So what is it exactly? foundation, bronzer, mist? A limited edition in time for summer, I was more than intrigued to get my hands on Givenchy Brume Bonne Mine. I am a bronzer gal year round so adding it to my ever expanding arsenal won't hurt.

    Housed in an aerosol spray, this product is the latest addition to Givenchy Croisiere line. It's currently a limited edition but I am finger-crossing that it becomes permanent. But what is it again zilla? Alright let me break it down for you. If you are fair-skinned, slightly misting this on your face will give you that proverbial summer glow. If you have medium skin tone like moi, it can pass for tinted or light foundation. If you are tanning, it will compliment your faux tan depending on the intensity of coverage. Here's how to use it as a foundation.

    1. Apply sunscreen/moisturizer/serum as per usual.
    2. Shake the bottle.
    3. Close eyes and spray from about 6-8 inches away.
    4. Blend and buff with foundation brush.

    It dries to a velvety finish without the need for setting powder (personal preference). Wear time is about seven hours with slight dewiness peeking on the fifth hour. I am in love with its lightweight formula and how it compliments my skin tone, hence my wish for it to become permanent. I am surprised that it has the ability to even out my dull complexion. Simply put, it's a great summer must-have if you're coveting natural glow and skin enhancement.

    Here's Givenchy Brume Bonne Mine in all its glory. I purposely omitted blush and bronzer because I love it on its own.

    I love designer makeup brands in general but when it comes to mascara, I have no qualms going the drugstore route; why? save for the shape of wand and density of bristles, there isn't really any huge difference, formula-wise. I had the opportunity to try the new Super Sizer Mascara and Intensify Me! liquid eyeliner by Covergirl. Are they revolutionary enough? keep reading!

    Floral and bright, Givenchy did capture my heart. A limited edition I have been patiently stalking for months, Givenchy Couture Edition Intense Color Sensuously Mat Lip Color 205 Fuchsia Irresistible finally landed on zilla's woman cave and I could't be more ecstatic. It is the most beautiful vibrant fuchsia exquisitely encased in the most beautiful floral leather tube. Jaw-droppin', mouth-poppin', if zilla's rappin', you know she's lovin'.

    Summer is all about bronzed glowing skin and while some of you are probably starting to enjoy all of Spring's niceties, it's never too early to rock this stunning hue like a true diva. If you watched the recent Billboard Music Awards, bronze makeup was the clear-cut choice amongst stars from J Lo to Zendaya to Rita Ora to Chrissy Teigen (who by the way appeared so uncomfortable and drunk while hosting, don't you think so?).  Applied correctly, it elevates your makeup game from simple to glam.

    I admit to have fallen off the fitness wagon for few weeks. Work and personal matters left no room for zilla to sweat. Count the sweet tooth binge, I am not liking what I'm seeing. It's not that I'm too hard-pressed to possess an enviable body but let me tell you, it's not me to be a couch potato. I have always been active but there are moments when I'm not feeling the treadmill, let alone dance hip-hop, which by the way is my #1 exercise routine.

    With mammoth of a hair, I'm telling you right now that it takes a village to style my hair. Okay that's totally pun but seriously, my day-to-day 'do is pretty much laid-back, either pony tail or barrette bun (tutorial here). Now that doesn't mean I'm a gadget snob because I have quite a stash, enough to convert my woman cave to a demi- hair salon. The latest to grace my fancy-nation? say hello to T3 Twirl 360!

    I'm really enjoying our #BeautyTalk from time to time because it's more virtually engaging and interactive. Plus it's Friday so I'm totally on chill mode already. This leads me to my next question, is there a certain makeup routine or technique that you try not to do when you're pressed for time? OhMy, don't get me started with those crooked cat eyes, haha!

    Blame coffee hands and morning rush! While I sorta mastered the trick to easy flick (tutorial here), I'm telling you right now that there are days zilla can't get it right. You start with ultra- thin line, then it gets thicker and bam! panda, anyone?

    Faux lashes not fo-me. Yeah, it's another thing I won't attempt to tinker even if I have extra five minutes to spare. Crooked cat eyes and flimsy falsies? mama look at zillakilla!

    So why don't I wake up early if I strive for makeup perfection? Nah, I'm not going to trade my soft pillows for dramatic eyes. Yes, I snooze, I loose. But girl, those extra five minutes are precious!

    What say you? chime in!

    And so my foray into the world of faux tanner was again revived with another interesting discovery from tanning expert Vita Liberata, the Self Tanning Night Moisture Mask. Repetition eliminates confusion so if three tan words ain't enough, let's make it four. This product claims to build tan gradually which favors Sue Slowlybutsurely but not so much Jaz Megafast. Let me explain.

    Have you been applying foundation the same way since you started wearing makeup? Do you hate the foundation you used to love before? Has your skin type changed? If you answered yes to at least one, then it's time to reevaluate your foundation game.

    Givenchy belongs to the top three brands I constantly stalk for new releases, particularly in the lipstick department. So why do I love Givenchy you ask? the formula in general is topnotch and the leather case is utterly fashion-forward. It's for the woman with very discriminating taste. Mature, check, mod double check.

    May is Melanoma Awareness Month. As a beauty enthusiast and skincare advocate, I have covered skin cancer prevention numerous times on the blog. Melanoma is a deadly form of skin cancer; caught late, survival rate is markedly diminished. Statistically, more than 76,000 Americans are diagnosed with melanoma each year. It is also the most common cancer-related diagnosis among young adults (source, Melanoma Research Alliance). Unlike other forms of cancer, melanoma is highly preventable, only if you take skincare seriously. Here are ways to keep the largest organ of our body in check:

Honu (green sea turtles) are frequent visitors, they are protected species hence it is illegal to touch, feed, chase or disturb them in their sanctuary. I thought you should know in case you visit our beautiful island.
