    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.

    BLK Cosmetics PH Lipsticks | Swatch + Review

    Oh, it’s a good year for cosmetics, that’s for sure. Women went crazy when Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty. Renown brands continue to collaborate with various celebrities and/or makeup artists. In the local scene, lipstick formula are improving and shades are expanding to give way to different skin tones.  To make things crazier, on September 20, 2017, Anne Curtis and her team officially launched BLK Cosmetics, the actress/host/model’s very own line of PETA-approved and cruelty-free makeup for uncomplicated beauty, as its tagline suggests. Of course, I was one of the many who went gaga over this new makeup line.

    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!…

    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.

    Kiehl’s Product Review

    I’ve been using these products for almost a month now, since July 17, and I’m ready to drop a product review on them. But here are some things you need to know about me first: I have an extremely oily skin. My face usually starts to shimmer 10 minutes after I apply my makeup. I have acne-prone and sensitive skin. I can easily get pimples from using a dirty makeup brush, from sleeping on a dirty pillowcase, or simply when I wear makeup the entire day. So sleeping with makeup on is a big no-no for me. I work from home so I rarely go out. That said, I usually…

    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!

    I Bought My First Mac Lipstick

    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.
