Holiday beauty gifts and buys

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes

I’ll start with the gifts.

Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter

Burt's Bees lip balms

Burt’s Bees Ultra Conditioning and Honey Lip Balms

I received these from the exchange gift at Team Aguhon’s Christmas dinner. They came in boxes that can be hung to a Christmas tree. Such a cute idea to instead of placing them under. I already started to use the Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm and it works nice under lipsticks. Lipsticks go smooth and even over it and prevents lip dryness especially from lipsticks that do dry then out.

November-December 2016 beauty favorites 

Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

Better late than never. 😆

The holiday season is the busiest time of the year. Not only with the Christmas rush of gift shopping and/or get-togethers, but work deadlines too, which is difficult when you’re already feeling the holidays. I didn’t get to switch beauty and skin care products when December came because I was very busy to bother. Besides, almost everything I used in November I ended up liking so much that I didn’t want to switch yet. Even so, there are only a few that I really loved and would consider favorites. I think the same goes for Joiz. 🙂 I’ll begin with hers.

The family and I only stayed home, so it seemed this was too much. But I wanted to play with makeup. 😛 I also missed wearing my Mac Sin.

Too much makeup shopping!


A collective post on my loot from third quarter this year to present. There are some I couldn’t find photos I took of, so I didn’t include them here. I don’t want to retake because I don’t remember when I bought them should I remember which ones they are from my makeup stuff. Anyway, I added my initial impressions per product below.

Benefit Rockitude! and the Porefessional
These were purchased earlier than 3rd quarter of this year.

Benefit Rockitude! – I only wanted the Benetint, but I saw this and thought this was such a good deal. I get to try the High Beam too!

Benefit Porefessional – This great for travel since, for a face powder, it comes with a brush instead of a puff.

FOTN: Stone Fox


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.
