Milnamania Week Review

I am so sorry for the lack of blogpost lately, I wont be explaining why I was gone for a while because I already did that on my last blogpost. 

Now, I will be posting a week review every other week and for this week let's talk about foundations. I'm sorry in advance if you can't get some of the product that I'll be mentioning but I'll try my best to find some online stores that sell the mentioned product. 

As I mentioned I'll be doing this review every other week from monday to friday, but every sunday I will be posting some teaser for the upcoming week. I already have planned the next 4 weeks for this so don't worry I won't be leaving you guys hanging again. 

Here are some teaser for the next 4 weeks that I'll be doing this review.

That's all.

Milna, where have you been?

It's been almost a month since I last posted and I am very very sorry for no being active again on my blog. I know some of you have been waiting for the Milnamania of the Month last February and I failed to announce the winner. Please read for you to know the reason and please do understand before you put negative comments or hate comments. I have a lot of explaining to do where I've been.

First, since last January I've been planning my son's first birthday. My last blogpost was Feb.17, and after that I've been very busy preparing for his birthday. We celebrated JM's birthday last Feb.22 because we are leaving to Kuwait Feb.24 together with my son's nanny.

Second, Feb.24 came and some papers of the nanny still hasn't done processing so I have to leave with my son, just the two of us. Imagine the 12-hour long flight with a one year old boy, dang it was hard. It was his first time travelling by plane, so it was not easy. 

Third, after arriving in Kuwait I have to take care of my son, me together with my mom and hubbhie, and because the nanny hasn't still arrive I have to do all the chores when it comes to my son which by the way I haven't done since he was still newborn. After his 1st month we already got the nanny so I wasn't the full time mom back then. It was 10 times harder now because he's starting to walk and being the curious cat all the time.

I forgot all the social network because of him. Whenever I touch my phone he always grab it. He wants to see whatever I'm doing, and because of that I can't even tweet or post on instagram. He also has a strangers and separation anxiety, I can't even pee because he will scream and cry when I left his sight. 

Fourth, I left all the prizes for my MOM in my friend but I forgot to give her the money to send the items, and now she is super busy with her work.

Please do understand and I sincerely apologize for abruptly pulling out the Milnamania of the Month.

Thank you for understanding and please don't get tired on reading my blog. I can still do some blogpost  but I can't guarantee you that I will always have one like before. I'm still waiting for the nanny to come.

Please do follow me on Twitter: mhielnah
and instagram: milnamania

If you have any questions or suggestions or any request please don't hesitate to contact me :D

Thank you so much

AskMilna Monday: YSL Volupte Sheer Candy

I've seen a lot of Beauty Gurus from Youtube and even Beauty Bloggers raved about this YSL infamous Volupte Sheer Candy, I've been holding my breath as well as my wallet for the longest time until I finally gave in when I saw them when I was in Kuwait and I knew right then that I wanna try it. 

I only bought two but God knows I wanna buy all of them. They are just so amazing.

I've been using this product everyday since I got this last December.

I am reviewing this particular lipstick because this is the one that got most request when I posted my January Favorites. And here is the beautiful ladies who requested this.

So here it goes ladies. Hope you like it.

First things first, look at that packaging, isn't it beautiful? The packaging looks and feels luxurious. YSL lipsticks have the most luxurious looking packaging I've ever seen. I usually see some lipstick in a plain black tubes, but this one is the bomb. This particular line, the Glossy balm features in a silver tube with a "YSL" logo in the middle together with the actual color of the product.

Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm in #4 also known as Succulent Pomegranate is a bright pink with red undertones in it.

Swatch time!

As you can see in the swatches above it is very sheer, but when you put it on your lips it will give an instant color and instant shine.

I can't remember the price of it but I bought this one when I was in Kuwait Duty Free going back here in the Philippines. It is definitely expensive but I think it is worth it.

How about you ladies, are you willing to give this lip product a shot? Comment below!
Do you have any favorite lip products as of the moment? leave a response below, I wanna know.

OH SO EMERALD! ~A Makeup Look Contest

Hello Beautiful and Gorgeous Ladies (and Gentlemen)!

As you may all know if you read my a bit of update blogpost last month, I am planning to have a contest with my very good friend Jannie.

Today is the day that we are actually doing this contest. We've planned this the whole time. Hope you'll like it and hoping that you all will participate.

We all know that "EMERALD" is so "IN" this year. It's Emerald coloured year. Since Me and Jannie were both born in May, Emerald is our Birthstone. So, in line with this trend, Jannie of Jannieology an Me had decided to host a Contest-Giveaway!

Three (3) Lucky Philippines based winners will have a chance to receive this amazing prizes:


Now, you probably wondering how you can join the contest? It's simple, just follow the instructions below:

1. Follow both Jannieology & Milnamania via GFC publicly.
2. Follow @TheJannieP & @mhielnah on Twitter.
3. Like Jannielogy, Milnamania and Beauty Bloggers United Facebook Fan Page.
4. Like our sponsors' Facebook Fan Pages:

5. Lastly you will submit a photo of your "Emerald Inspired" wearable makeup look to my email address: milnamania (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject title OH SO EMERALD CONTEST ENTRY. You will have till January 29, 2013 to send in your entry.

So how do we pick the lucky winner? Well, we have invited three (3) Beauty Blogger Judges to help pick our lucky winners. These guest judges are non other than Bing Castro of The Project Awesome, Joyce Sola of Candy Love Art, and Chriselle Sy of ChriselleSy. They will be judging based on the following criteria:
-Wearability 20%
-Creativity 20%
-Delivery Technique (blending, color combination, eyeliner, applications) 20%
-Overall Impact (makeup, hairstyle, clothing, accessories, etc) 30%

That's only total of 90%, where did the 10% go? Let me explain it to you, this is where the audience impact comes in. All submitted entries will be posted on the official Beauty Bloggers United page and we will be opening an album with all the entries for your supporters to "Like". There will be one (1) week period where you can collect "Likes" on your photo and this will count as 10% of your total score. We won't be relying ONLY on that, it doen't mean if you got the highest point in "Likes" category you will be the winner, that is only 10% of the total criteria. Just keep that in mind. We won't be tolerating any complains like "I had the highest amount of likes in Facebook why didn't I win?" and stuff like that.

Here's some inspiration from our beloved 3 judges:

Now let's all start the fun!
Go ahead and send me your photos lovelies!

what's on my iPhone5 + Cases + Reviews

Before iPhone5 released here in Philippines, I know that I wanna buy it. I've been contacting Globe when iPhone5 will arrive in Philippines and they just kept me hanging and telling me that it will come soon. So the day Globe finally emailed me that the released of iPhone5 will be on Dec.14, 2012 I was excited and I knew I wanna get it right away.

But the thing is, the BBU meet-up/mini Christmas party will on the same day, Dec. 14. So I need to make a huge decision where will I go, I wanna buy the iPhone5 but I wanna go see my Co-bloggers too. Then I was like "What the heck? I can get the iPhone5 whenever I want and it will be available everywhere, but the BBU meet-up will only be that day." So I decided to go and meet my friends and I didn't have any regrets about it. If you wanna know more about it please do read here.

Anyways, on to the actual topic here, I got my iPhone5 few days later. And I fell in love with the instant I saw it. I'm a HUGE Apple (MAC) fan. I started using iPhone when the iPhone 3Gs was release and since that everytime Apple release new iPhone I knew I had to get my hand on that.

I got mind at Apple store in Viramall Greenhills.
It's an iPhone5 32GB white
It comes in a box with the new head phones and new type of charger.

I am not gonna do an in-depth specification of the phone here. 

*a little disclaimer: I bought this phone with my own money, no company or shop sent me this. I am not doing this to brag or anything. Just wanna share my experience*

I only had this phone for less than a month and I already accumulated quite a lot of cases. I am selling some of iPhone5 and iPhone4/4s cases on my shop. When my stocks arrived I immediately took what I like :) clever? yeah I know :D.

right now, I am loving this pink owl case :)

So unto the review:

What I like about it:
-it is thinner and waaaayyy more lighter than the 4s.
-the maps are ah-ma-zing!!!
- the camera is better than the previous.

What I hate about it:
-Email Notification is a huge FAILURE, I don't get any notifications when some emailed me.
-it is longer and i have a tiny little hands so the apps in the upper part is the one I don't use more often simply because I can't reach it.
-I often get "No sim card" notification.

I think I like this better than the iPhone4s but if the iPhone4s is thinner and lighter like this I wont be upgrading to iPhone5.

Now, let's go What is on my iPhone

I love my lock screen wallpaper( left), see how cute my son :) love it!
and ofcourse any beauty bloggers should have their own photo as their wall paper :) I have mine as homescreen (right).
The top 4 apps are the one I need everyday as well as the bottom 4.

Here's the fun part let's do the left side first.
from top left to right going down.
-Maps, Clock, Calculator and Tiny Tower.
-Fashion Finds, Tango, Viber, Camera.
-Photography folder(for my instagram), Social network folder(linkedin, tumblr and stuff), Blogs folder has(Milnamania, Jannieology, eyahnism, analysisofmylife), Facebook pages.
-Safari, app store, reminders, N+otes(love this)
-twitter, instagram, facebook, messenger

Let's go to the right side.
-games(the only game I play here is the temple run), utilities(the apps that I don't use), Videos and newstand.
-iBooks, Globe services, Gservices, Youtube,
-Foursquare, Click the city, Ayala Malls 360, weather,
-Blogger, notes, P.D(Period Diary), Flashlight
-Genius scan, Office plus, looloo(i don't use this), Vichat(for video chat on FB).

So that's it.
If you have any question leave them below, would love to answer them.

What are your favorite apps? Comment below!

Stay Safe & God Bless!
till next time,
