Rouge Dior 787 Exuberant is one of the updated Rouge Dior line, which has 57 shades (per the Dior website). This is description in the website:
With Rouge Dior and its cult formula of 16h* comfort, women feel good, no matter the colour, no matter the finish satin or matte.
A palete of colours with iconic reds, vibrant corals, passionate pink, romantic rosewoods and extreme and surpising matte shades.
True object of desire, Rouge Dior comes with a new metallic couture case crafted with secret little details : for a touch of personal luxury, the inside of each cap is attired in the Rouge 999 shade, Dior’s flamobayantly sexy signature.
Yesterday, I posted in my website a review of NYX Liquid Suede in Stone Fox–A deep gray with blue undertone liquid creme lipstick. I mentioned that I did a look with it.
With a gray lipstick, it’s easy to look dead or washed out. So I did this makeup somewhat as a guide to help create a look to match with the rockin’ Stone Fox. 🙂 Tbh, I forgot most of the products I used, but you don’t have to limit yourself to the same products. You can use what you already have or something similar.
Hello, lovelies! We are finally doing monthly favorites. This has been a long time coming. 🙂
Joiz’s September Favorites
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Seduction
The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor range is one of the good liquid lipsticks in the drugstore imo. No surprise that Joiz likes it as well, specifically Seduction that she uses for her everyday or work makeup look.
I had confused this with another Clinique event and it has taken this long for me to realize this Lip and Smile and that Play with Pop were different. LOL! Anyway, the Clinique Lip and Smile was a free makeover offer with tips and tricks on makeup on-trend such as thick brows and ombre lips. I had the ‘boyfriend brows’ and bold lips, which were both suggested to me, and Joiz had the ‘Rebel Chic’ look.
Traditionally matte lipsticks tend to either be too shiny or too powdery that they’re likely to cake, crack and dry out my lips. And usually the good kind of matte are found under high-end brands which cost an arm and leg to purchase. Enter a new generation of affordable matte lipstick: Avon Perfectly Matte Lipstick.
It all started with the The Body Shop’s Dusty Rose Lip and Cheek Stain. There’s nothing like having natural-looking pink flushed cheeks to brighten my face and make me look more awake (especially during long hours at work!). Then when I was persuaded to stay for a night in Shangri-La Fort because it was already late when I got done with gym, I only had my mascara, powder, concealer, and Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain Honey to use. My face looked flat and pale, but the Balm Stain really gave my face the ‘life’ it needed. My liking for pinks have rekindled. 🙂
Since my birth monththis month started, I switched up my makeup with more pinks–Mostly lippies that are great for either day or evening looks. I haven’t thoroughly checked my collection, but these are my picks so far:
July has passed and I wasn’t able to review the rest of the makeup I was using then. But, actually, only the foundation and concealer are left, both of which I still use. They could still be part of my August makeup routine because I ♥ them both! In order of how I put them on, I’ll begin the reviews with foundation then concealer.
Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation 130 Buff Beige
This drugstore foundation has very good reviews and has been highly recommended for those with oily combination skin.
A bottle contains 30ml or 1.0 fl.oz. of product
I don’t think I have any cons, but only pros on this drugstore foundation.
Truly matte with medium to heavy coverage
Eight-hour longevity and sometimes longer before any shininess peers through
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!
