Evia Lifestyle Center's MX4D Theatres: Action Packed!

Hello po! I have actually watched Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice before, on a "regular" cinema, so I was really lucky to be able to watch it for the second time in nothing less than MX4D- the most high tech cinema in the Philippines! Yehey!

Evia Lifestyle Center in Daang Hari (also known as the Las Piñas-Muntinlupa-Cavite Road), Vista City

Last April 6, we went to Vista Malls flagship- the swanky Evia Lifestyle Center in Daang Hari (also known as the Las Piñas-Muntinlupa-Cavite Road), Vista City. From the outside, scenic nature welcomes you, and inside the mall, it's really fantastic- looks very colorful and modern, with paintings of clouds in the ceiling. The place is very cool and clean, with friendly staff.

I am for Team Superman, by the way

See, Feel, Believe!

MX4D really is all-engaging. All senses are heightened and it connects you with the screen heroes and so watching is more fun and exciting! Imagine, aside from images being in 3D (that is the picture looks doubled so we wear 3D glasses), the seats and around the theatre have these capabilities:
  • Seat Effects: heave, roll, pitch
  • Seat Environmental Effects: rumbler, back poker, leg tickler, neck tickler, air blast, water blast, seat popper
  • Auditorium Environmental Effects: fog, lightning, strobe, wind, scent (10 kinds like ocean air, etc. During the movie I noticed these scents: leaves, earth, even the smell of kryptonite has a scent albeit a weird one at that!)

This was my seat, we had popcorn and drinks. 

I was not expecting anything really so I was surprised at all the tricks- my behind got poked, I thought something ran and brushed against my legs, water spurted and wind gushed on my face, there was smoke in the cinema, there was rumbling with the fight scenes and more!  First time! I can only imagine watching a horror movie here!

Vista Cinemas at the Evia Lifestyle Center opened on February 10, 2016 and houses 4 state of the art movie theatres.

DOLBY ATMOS

Three of the four newly opened cinemas are fitted with the latest and the best in audio technology-Dolby Atmos. It allows movie-goers to feel like they're part of every scene; the sound flows around you! The sound produced by the Atmos System is projected from every direction in the cinema and moves with the action on-screen for a one-of-a-kind movie experience.

LUXURY SEATS

All four theaters of the Vista Cinemas are equipped with luxury seating from the FIGUERAS and LUXUS brands available only in select locations around the world. Figueras is a Spanish brand specializing in crafting high-end seating for public spaces. Their seats can be found in places such as The White House and the Philharmonie de Paris. Luxus is by Lee Designs, a design company in the business of creating ergonomic interior solutions for 40 years. The Luxus seats are ergonomically- designed cinema seating, specially customized for Vista Cinema's unique theater space plan.

Couples living and working in the area can now also get to experience world-class movie dates. Vista Cinema 2 at Evia Lifestyle Center has thirty-one customized love seats that take the romantic movie experience to a whole new level of comfort and coziness.

After the movie, friends from the media had lunch at TGIFs and Ms. Camille Villar also delivered her message! I am surprised that, even though she is known as an heiress to politician  parents, she is very simple and approachable! <3

Top 5 Reasons why Informatics is the BEST I.T. School

Real Talk: Some newly graduated youngsters earn way more (think Php 60,000 a month) than experienced employees who have been in that job for more a decade. Because those new grads my friend, have a degree with the in-demand thing at present- and that is in- TECHNOLOGY.

We can see it all around us. The games and toys, how we get our news, how we shop, how we communicate, etc.- it's all in the INTERNET, baby.

Erase Plantcenta Soap Review

Hello po!
Now if you are looking for a whitening soap that works, here is one you should try: Erase Plantcenta 3-in-1 magic soap (whitening, anti-ageing, moisturizing).

I have used it on my face a few times. It feels gentle, did not sting. Skin immediately looked brighter! I prefer to use it as a body soap though and even if I currently don't use whitening body lotions (not because I am too lazy but because I am too busy and I am always rushing), it maintained whiter and moisturized skin.

Erase Plantcenta 3-in-1 magic soap review

After opening the carton, there is another plastic covering the bar.

Made in the Philippines by UK Derm Pharma.
Price: Php 103 per 135 g.
Where to buy: Leading drug stores, department stores and supermarkets.
Fragrance: None detected, just a subtle clean scent.
Attributes: White bar with no etching of the name, very bubbly.
Care to keep it in a dry soap dish and it will not melt quickly.

Ingredients: Sodium salt of distilled palm, palm kernel, water, butylene glycol, Pueraria lobata root extract, Chlorella vulgaris extract, Aloe  barbadensis leaf extract, sodium lactate, Butyrospermum parkii and fragrance. ( I don't know why the shea butter or Vitellaria paradoxa is not in the list as you can see below.)

erase plantcenta, price, ingredients,

I kid you not! I have been very exposed to the noon day sun this summer and this promo guy handing raffle stubs called me as "Ma'am Snow White"! So I can tell you that Erase Plantcenta  soap is effective!

Thanks for reading. Have you tried Erase Plantcenta 3-in-1 magic soap? I'd love to hear your experience below. :)

Essence Eye Pencils Review

Hello po!
This is a review of Essence Longliner eyeliner as requested by an Instagram friend, hi jeyloo! I decided to also include the Kajal one I bought months before this new one, since I have been really planning to review them.

Whenever I pass by the Essence Philippines booth, I would find myself getting something because the makeup is made in Europe, the packaging is nice, yet the price is so affordable!

Essence Longlasting Eye Pencil
Supersoft eye pencil for precise application. Long-lasting.

Ah, I don't know why I bought this. It was LIQUID eyeliner on sale that I was looking for. Saleslady showed me a dozen other makeups. Of course, nahiya ako so I bought something na lang.

Essence Eyeliners:

Likes:
  • Affordable
  • Good quality
  • Made in Germany
  • Although I don't see any bunny logo, I read that Cosnova doesn't test on animals. CHEERS!!!
Dislikes:
  • No seal- there's a discard after 36 months sign but we cannot be certain on when it was first opened, since anybody can remove the cap, check it out or smell it, and just return it to the shelf.
  • Ingredients are not listed
  • There is a "Refer to Insert" logo, but there is not a leaflet or box to read from. It's not really a problem since less packaging= less garbage= better for nature!
Here is the comparison of the two Essence eyeliners,
Shot under natural light and with camera flash:

After 1. Smudging and then wetting,
2. Wiping with tissue:

essence eyeliner details, price,

In the hand test, the longlasting pencil lived up to its name! But in real life, after a long day, with my oily skin due to hot weather, this is the case-
when I line my BOTTOM lashes, both of them tends to smudge or spread. But when I line only the UPPER lashes, the kajal transfers over my eyelids and under eyes, while the longlasting stays put.

Yes, "eye" like these two! Thanks for reading my review of Essence eyeliners in Longlasting and Kajal! Are you also like me, who feels my makeup is kinda undone without eyeliner? Sound off in the comments below!
