My Birthday Week + Hair Chopped Short + So Natural All Day Tight Make Up Setting FIXX


December, to me, is one of the most important months of the year for several reasons. It's my birth month, Christmas Day, and by the end of it comes New Year. It is also one of the longest vacation time because of the holiday season. Family and friends can meet-up for a reunion and get-togethers. To start this month, I will be celebrating my birthday before the weekend, another year older and a lot of things to be grateful for.

To start my birthday week, I finally decided to chop my hair short. I have been so eager to have or get something different before my birthday. Initially, I wanted to shave or get an undercut hairstyle, I felt a little skeptical with that so, I went a little tamer.

I have never had my hair this short, I was afraid that it won't fit with the shape of my chubby face. Nevertheless, I did it! I was motivated to have it cut and the thought of it will grow back again soon made me said yes to the hairdresser when she asked me the last time about the length she was going to chop. I firmly said, yes, it will grow back again! She cut 12-inches off my hair. I felt excited while she was cutting it, I immediately knew how and what to style with it every day, I had a clear picture on my mind. I really liked it!


A little trivia, it's been fifteen years or so since the last time I went to the salon for a haircut! When it comes to cutting and coloring my hair, I DIY!

An update on the haircut, it has been 48 hours since I had my hair cut, my first time to showered and washed my hair was a little new. It was easy for me to wash my hair that uses up an amount of full hair shampoo and conditioner. Easy for me to dry my hair and especially to style it. I also noticed that I don't have much hair loss than before. Overall, it is so manageable!

To go along with my new hairstyle, I tested this So Natural All Day Tight Make Up Setting FIXX. 


So Natural All Day Tight Make Up Setting FIXX it claims to prevent makeup smudge and clumping when applied throughout the day.
Having super fine and an even mist that will keep you looking fresh with no need to touch up during the day. Ranked as #1 Beauty+ 2018 Editor's Pick. 

Seoulunni Philippines was so kind and send me a bottle to try.









Seoulunni Philippines was so kind and send me a bottle to try. My initial thoughts on this product.

I opened the sealed cap and sprayed it on the back of my hand, I think the reason why it was so liquidy when I sprayed it because forgot to shake the bottle. I rubbed the liquid product onto the skin and instantly absorbed, it doesn't leave any sticky feeling, it has a powdery scent. 



After a few minutes, I shook the bottle and sprayed the product mist onto my face. Unlike, other makeup setting spray, with watery formula, this mist type spray doesn't irritate my eyes and doesn't ruin the eye makeup. Generally, this has been my concern with makeup setting spray. 

I will be fieldwork tomorrow and will give this product a test with sun exposure. I hope this will live up to what it claims and again pass to my test. 

This product sells at SeoulUnni, regular price Php1015/ US$20 with a marked down price of Php700/ US$14.

Update: when I used it for the second time, the scent was a little off...it has a tinge of ammonia scent when sprayed. But, the mattifying effect was just beautiful! Although, after, 8 hours wearing it in a humid condition, it did notice some wearing off on the eye makeup, and also in the forehead as I was wiping it because of sweat. I think this will work perfectly worn indoors. In summary, I like the product because it is light to apply and easy to use.

  3. Sometimes it's so nice to get a haircut. I go for a cut every 12 weeks, but only get about 1/2" off every time.
