I have been waiting for the local Clinique stores to have the Clinique Pop™ Oil Lip & Cheek Glow. I didn’t even know that Black Honey is among the shades. It was good timing that co-blogger Joiz and I was at Clinique (Rustan’s Makati) last weekend for the Lip & Smile event since they just had the Pop Oils in stock for only about a week at the time. The shade I bought was Black Honey Glow.
I’ve used the oil for a few times already since I bought it. Here are my first impressions:
Consistency is slightly thick (thus its fluid-gel formula), so it takes some effort to get a natural blush finish.
I love the dewy finish on the cheeks!
It doesn’t come off sheer on the lips as I thought it would be like the Clinique Superbalm™ Moisturizing Gloss in the same shade.
It leaves a red stain when the gloss and shine is gone.
I’m really loving the Pop Oil so far that it makes me want to get another one. I’ll get all if I could! 😀
My day or work lipstick for this month is Maybelline’s Color Sensational Creamy Matte in Touch of Spice. It is a matte deep brown-y pink shade, though looks mauve pink in the tube, that was highly coveted when it was first released here. I didn’t even get to see many of the Color Sensational Creamy Mattes range. Maybe Maybelline had too few stocks per store, people hoarded, or I was just too late to the party. LOL!
Upon the start of the month, per usual, I switched makeup for my daily/office look. There are a couple of new items in my July makeup routine. I’ll review them individually and in no specific order starting with an eye makeup. 🙂
Shiseido is a Japanese cosmetics company. They released an ad in the late quarter last year that I’ve only seen yesterday.
Makeup really is amazing even though it didn’t seem like they have a lot on for the ‘transformation’ similar to those we could find in YouTube. Then again, Japanese males are quite androgynous. 🙂 I actually didn’t want to accept that two of the boys were actually _boys_. LOL! I ♥ the music in the cm too. It makes me want to songs from the same artist for my vlogs. 😀
Korres is one brand that I so want to love and be a favorite, but that they’re not easily accessible so that makes it impossible. I was on a trip to US at the time they released the Goddess Beauty, which contains several of their makeup. I knew I could get it. I could try several Korres products in one purchase. But I went to a couple of Sephora stores (I remember my mom complaining) and didn’t find it. Then I went to a branch near the hotel I was staying at and found a few. I thought hard whether or not I should get it. I browsed the store twice, but I knew it had taken my heart. LOLOL!
There’s a huge hype with the Colourop Ultra Matte Lips among beauty fans, with so many good reviews and very few (and very) minor drawbacks. I knew I had to try them too especially that I’m always for lipsticks that have great longevity. They say the Ultra Matte liquid lipstics do last long.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips has a wide range of colors. That just means, for me, more colors to like and want. O_O But these four I really really like especially Kapow and Bumble.
I have a few matte lipsticks already, but lately I’ve been buying more especially after discovering Wet n’ Wild’s Megalast Lip Color. I’ve been on a lookout for other budget matte lipsticks since. I found City Color’s Be Matte Lipsticks while I searched for Wet n’ Wild’s Vamp It Up (or was it Cherry Bomb?) at Pure Beauty Glorietta. I bought two shades, which were on sale as a Valentine’s Day promo.
