    NYX Soft Matte + Lingerie: Swatches and Review

    READ: THESE ARE NOT AUTHENTIC NYX PRODUCTS.  Last July 19, I wrote a blog post on my latest makeup and skincare haul, which included four NYX lipsticks, two in soft matte, and two more in Lingerie. And since I’ve tried every one of them already, I’m here to write about them. Of the four, I’ve used the soft matte liquid lipsticks the most because they’re the most convenient colors. But if you want to try a greige makeup look, I wrote a tutorial wearing the NYX Lingerie in Embellishment. Read tutorial here.

    Maybelline Inti-Matte Nude Lipsticks | Swatch + Review

    For a whole week, I longed for Maybelline Inti-Matte Nude Lipsticks. I kept stopping myself because I recently did a makeup inventory and saw the tubes I have yet to finish. But alas, I gave in. And it was the best decision I ever made. The lipsticks were so good!  Disclaimer: This is my last lipstick hoard for the year. If any of you finds me lingering in the beauty section of the department store, harshly drag me away. Thank you.

    Ashley Shine Lipstick Swatches

    This is a bit late for last #NationalLipstickDay’s shenanigans, but better late than never, right? LOL. Some weeks ago, I got this box of mini lipsticks. It only cost me around P120 for 12 pieces worth of lipsticks. So it’s like I only spent P10 for each piece. So I’m here to share with you the swatches of each color and how I feel about them.  I saw the brand in passing inside the department store, particularly in the makeup section. The animations on the lipstick tubes caught my eye. It looked like Veronica from Archie comics. There was also a plum lipstick and the color is to die for!…

    My Collection Of ‘Most Ignored’ Lipsticks

    By now, you should already know that it’s International Lipstick Day this weekend. You know, sales here and there? Packed Department store beauty sections? Women itching to buy lipsticks they don’t even need? LOL.  And in celebration of me and my fellow makeup lovers’ most awaited day, I thought of writing a blog post that focuses on.. you’ve guessed it – lipsticks! This is my own way of celebrating the day because 1) I’m too broke at the moment to buy any more lipsticks and 2) The number of lipsticks in my stash can already last me a lifetime (not counting their expiration dates).

    My Top Six Favorite Lipsticks

    Earlier today, I was shooting a makeup vlog when my phone suddenly ran out of memory space. Oops. I know, I know. It happens a lot. Too many times, I tried to shoot a vlog, but I always get a pop-up message instead. So instead of wasting time and ditching the plan altogether, I decided to just blog it. I thought of sharing my favorite lipstick products because.. well, why not? Us women should always be looking out for each other – including with our beauty favorites. ? Without further ado, here are my top 6 lipstick faves.

    Makeup & Skincare Haul: Intro

    I feel iffy whenever I start drafting a blog post on beauty. I love makeup and all, but it just doesn’t scream me, and I know it’s a part of my life, but it’s not something I want to write passionately about. I feel weird about this, period. Awkwardness aside, I haven’t fully used these products yet but I recently got a makeup and skincare haul and I want to share it here and write a review on them later on. The reviews might take a while so here’s a quick introduction of the products.

    Greige Makeup Tutorial

    Greige: a color between beige and gray Last Sunday, I found myself in a vulnerable situation. I was standing in the middle of the Department Store, specifically in the makeup section, with NYX beside me and Sleek a few feet away. Those were the top two brands I was looking for and I grew ecstatic as I saw the huge line-up of lipsticks that I only used to ogle online and wish I could try because of all the hype. I was on an itch to try Sleek because of the awesome reviews and NYX’s Lingerie line because the colors are just downright to die for. I mean, it has,…

    Lipstick Review: Beauty Haul

    This blog post is long overdue and I initially planned to do a review per individual lipstick, but since my beauty haul piled up, I opted to do one big lipstick review about them instead. I’ll try to make each lipstick review brief but substantial, honest, and straight to the point. I’m going to ditch the package and whatnot and will focus on the products’ pigmentation, texture, feel, and such. (PS, I apologize for the tacky edit. I have yet to get myself a good camera + a photoshop app. Teehee.) Read on!
