Mom went through makeup that a relative sent a few months back. She beat me to this one.
Both look familiar. I may have shades similar to both, but I still wanted them.
I was checking Estee Lauder’s range of lipsticks at Rustan’s Makati and the Fuschia Fever was recommended to me. I wanted a light and bright pink at first, but when I put it on and checked a few minutes later, I realized how the color is so stunning; very eye-catching. I bought it with some other Estee Lauder gifts (for me). 😀
It lasted for hours too! My tube has yet to be opened so no pics of the actual lipstick for now.
The collection consists of:
Pure Color Sensuous Rouge Lip Color in Sultry Caramel, Sensuous Nude, and Sublime Nectar
Pure Color Five Color Topaz Mosaic eyeshadow palette
Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Topaz Chameleon
Pure Color Gloss in Citron Kiss
Pure Color Intense Kajal Eye Crayon in Dramatic Black and Dramatic Teal
Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Teal Topaz
I love the color of Dramatic Teal. I have read some blogs on this collection and Topaz Chameleon is getting good reviews. I think I want that. :3 Because I lack a highlighter and bronzer in my makeup stash. Topaz Chameleon makes a great of both. 😀 Citron Kiss is as tempting as the aforesaid. I have yet to see if this collection is/will be available locally.
Sorry, ladies. This is another Estee Lauder product. ^^;;;
Estee Lauder Long Lasting Rouge in Nectarine is one of my favorite lipsticks. This is under their Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick line, but what I have is just in a regular round blue plastic packaging instead of the classy looking one you’ll see in their website.
Yesterday seemed like a slow day. There were hardly any people in the malls. I guess everyone stayed in because of the rain or went on a trip to make the most of the long weekend. While I, on the other hand, hung out with Jan from afternoon until late evening for Army Navy and Starbucks coffee (I’m helping her collect stickers). I went out in a semi-sporty attire, so I put on a near-natural eye make-up.
First time I tried my recently acquired Clinique eye shadow palette that contains soft pinks and sheer matte brown.
I had a ToyCon FOTD draft, but decided against on posting it. The makeup was too light then (or the pictures came out that way), so it seemed pointless to post makeup that’s not too obvious or hardly visible. I deleted the pictures yet I couldn’t take not posting an FOTD. So last night I came out with this look:
The baptism of my cousin’s son was held in the early afternoon of December 12, 2010. I went in my dark purple blouse, so I chose colors that slightly matched it.
(Pictures were taken with a flash. The make-up appears less pigmented or visible than it is in real life.)
On my face:
Lastly, on the lips:
Jan and I had a window-shopping trip at Greenhills last Saturday. I actually had to pick up a toy there, but most of our time was spent on window-shopping… For laptops. Hrhr~ XD;
I had no idea what look to for that night. I thought I’d just experiment with the Ammo palette. I was tired of neutrals too being that’s my everyday/office-look. I decided to re-try Urban Decay’s Last Call because the first time was fail.
Please ignore the red spots on my chest. ^^;;;
This is one of the few lipsticks that I haven’t used yet. My Mum and Lolas are into reds, so other colors end up given to me. 🙂
I thought this was a Lancome lipstick when I first saw it since my other Estee Lauder lipsticks are in rectangular/cornered cases.
Of course I thought wrong. 😛 Here’s Estee Lauder’s description of their Signature line lipsticks:
My Snapdragon lipstick is too dry and hard to apply. This is the only matte lipstick I have and it’s making me dislike matte lipsticks generally. 🙁 Such a waste to throw it away, I thought I’d do a little ‘test’.
The staying power of the lipstick is about 2 hours tops. I guess whatever ingredient that should have made it glide smoothly or give a bit of shine has dried out. When I did the ‘test’, it lasted for hours even when I had a big cup of tea. The lip gloss is a match for the lipstick. 😀
