City Color Be Matte Lipsticks in Brianda and Gwen


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.

The almost forgotten lip swatches

Adding to my ‘Choice of Lippies for End of 2015‘ post are these lip swatches, which I honestly forgot. I was too excited! Anyway, on to the lip swatches:

Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick in Bare It All (902C)

MAC Sin (Matte)

MAC Sin looks creamy in the photo, but it eventually loses that creamy finish.

NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick in Cruella

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella 20160329_213603

My lips were dry in the above photo, but it wasn’t because of the NARS lip pencil. I know I should have scrubbed before the lip swatch. If I did though, that means another day/s delay of this post. 😛

Choice lippies for end of 2015


I mentioned in my 2015 Best in Beauty that I would be reviewing the Laura Mercier Lip Paint in Vermillion Red separately. (I still love that lip gloss.) That’s queued for review and I thought I would post ahead my last quarter of 2015 choice of lippies. Even though there is no fall or winter in the Philippines, my choices were based on the shade choices for those seasons 😛

Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick in Bare It All (902C)

I fell in love with this the moment I used it.

Since I have fair skin, I often skip nude lispticks because they’re usually too pale for me and would wash out my face. But I got curious with Wet n Wild’s MegaLast In the Flesh lipstick because it had rave reviews. The stall at The Landmark Makati didn’t have that shade though. I got Bare It All instead. I did like Bare It all the moment I swatched it. It is medium beige with no hint of pink, which is what I want in a nude lipstick.

L’Oreal Tint Caresse Powder Lipstick


Earlier this month, L’Oreal Philippines decided to highlight their powder lipsticks on Facebook. So while this product has been around since November last year (or even earlier), and I got one after my birthday, only get to review this now because I forgot about that purchase, and only remembered it when I saw the promos.

So here we go.

L’Oreal buys and gifts from my Mom

I told myself I wouldn’t be buying until I review a lot of my unused products or until I have a bunch of empties. But sales like L’Oreal’s are hard to resist and I needed a new foundation… As if I’ll end up with getting only a foundation. 😛

L'Oreal Buys 2015
L to R: True Match Super-Blendable Make-up in Sun Beige (PhP899600), Mat Magique All-in-One in Vanilla Glory (PhP499400)

Gah~

Risque is very nice.

NYX Risque Wicked Lipstick

And Cold Hearted looks very nice too.

NYX Cold Hearted Wicked Lipstick

Would this be available locally? I would look _dead_ hot with Risque while sexy with Cold Hearted. LOLOL! You know I kid. 😛 I hope they’re no fail, but besides longevity, NYX lippies work for me.

Revlon and NYX lippies

I had a makeup buying withdrawal last month (such #firstworldproblems!), so I went to SM’s beauty area to buy a few drugstore lippies. They were also on sale too. 😛

Revlon and NYX Buys 2014 v2

Top, left to right: NYX Butter Gloss in Cherry Pie, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sorbet, and Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic

I like everything so far except Unapologetic because I haven’t tried it yet.

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage

Do you remember this post? Among the three, I’ll be reviewing first the NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage. (If I review in order of my purchase, it should be the MAC first, then Laura Mercier, and NARS would be the last.)

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick Carthage 007v2

The NARS Pure Matte Lipstick was supposed to still be in my wishlist. I just couldn’t keep myself from buying it right away after when I saw this picture of Emma Stone rockin’ the lipstick:

I read reviews here and here and I was already at the NARS store the following weekend. 😀
