Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick 107 Rossetto 20160528_162441

Yay, it’s already Friday! I’ve been looking forward to the weekend because of my recent sleep troubles. I want to get a long shut-eye. Gotta work, work, work, so this day will go fast. 😀

Before I attemptget to work, here’s a quick post on another lipstick I’ve been using for a couple of months now as my after-work or night time look. It’s not just a July pick.

First impressions on the Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Black Honey Glow

Black Honey Glow is the rightmost

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! 😀

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Touch of Spice

Maybelline Creamy Mattes in Touch of Spice 20160621_010656

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!

For a change, I’ll start with the cons.

Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes

20130213_063357 Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes - Egyptian 2

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. 🙂

High School Girl?

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. 😀

An oldie, but still a goodie – The Korres Goddess Beauty LE Color Collection

Korres Goddess Beauty LE Color Collection 20160622_001331

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!

Korres Goddess Beauty LE Color Collection 20130314_062150

First impressions: Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips

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.

City Color Be Matte Lipsticks in Brianda and Gwen

City Color Be Matte Lipstick Bundle 20160204_023735

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.
