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, like, the perfect line-up of nudes for women with different skin colors. Okay, I may be romanticising it too much, but I’ve never seen a line-up that fits my liking like it before.

Last February 27, right when I was ready to turn it down, Stacy of the former Plump Pinay blog turned PLUMP Magazine convinced me enough to go to their first talk on self-love with guest speakers Katrina Gumabao, Julianne Tarroja, Rona Samson-Tai, and, of course, Danah Gutierrez (Stacy’s twin). The event was hosted by Nikki Veron Cruz, who was very cute and pretty in person, by the way.

The venue, 110 A Space, Legaspi St., Makati, is right across Greenbelt 5’s entrance (with the huge sign of Zara), so it’s pretty easy to find. I thought I’d have to walk long but it’s literally just across the street. Anyway, I’ve never been there before so I was feeling kind of lost and when I found the place, I registered as an early bird (wasn’t expecting this) and was given my name sticker and loot bag. As I was registering, I could hear the twins talking inside and I just couldn’t help getting nervous. I’ll finally get to meet them! Ahhhh.

When I got inside the room, my first thought was, “Wow, this place is so beautiful.” It was insane, the place lived up to my expectations and more because it was really intimate and had an indoor picnic set-up, which exuded a comfortable and casual vibe, just what I needed since I don’t frequent talks like that. Okay, fine, I seldom go out, even. I thought I could also brush up on my self-love, so I went.

I wasn’t disappointed. I enjoyed every minute of it.

I was dubious about this product line. You will know later why. So before I decided to this product review, I Google-ed more about tea tree extract itself to know for myself if it’s really scientifically proven to help heal pimples and the like. Here’s Huffingpost Style’s say on it,

Some people would say I’m good at doing faces, the makeup kind of face. Most of my friends would come to me at the last minute before an event, to have a little something something on their face. Sure, I like makeup, but as much as I do, it’s so ironic that I’m not very good at it.

Why do we women love falling victim to society’s “beauty standards” of us?

Why can’t we love ourselves first before other people’s opinions?

Why do we love photoshop-ing ourselves?

Why can’t we post #selfies without them shamelessly undergoing several filters and/or edits beforehand?

Why do we have such a hard time embracing who we really are, accepting our flaws, and not placing ourselves under the constant pressure of what other think about us and our looks?

Why is it so hard to accept to embrace our God-given uniqueness?
