Darker Lips For Fall

Even if we don’t enjoy four season in the Philippines, the rainy season gives us a reason to dress warmly and sport some darker lips.

Here’s my take on it.

Plus, I partnered it with a darker nail polish.

Dare to go darker? What’s the darkest lip color you have worn?

One Afternoon To Evening Look

Last Saturday I had a full social day. Morning I did my usual writing and by lunch time I was preparing for my afternoon date with the boyfriend. And by dinner time, I’ll be joining the rest of the family for my Papa’s post birthday celebration (his birthday was on June 10).

So taking to consideration I had a full day, and wouldn’t have the time to change my makeup for the night, I went ahead and applied a makeup look that’s appropriate for the afternoon and would last until the evening. Here’s what I came up with:

Maybelline Bold Matte and L’oreal Candy Lipsticks

Since I’m still in a hiatus from applying eye makeup, I have been obsessed with lip products. I keep buying them. I know I have to stop myself from doing this but then I saw the new Maybelline Bold Matte Lipsticks. Also, I have always wanted to try L’oreal’s Miss Candy Collection Lipstick. IMG_1174

So I got two new Maybelline Bold Matte Lipsticks in MAT1 and MAT3 and one L’oreal’s Miss Candy Collection Lipstick in the shade Miss Strawberry.

Lip Diary Day 3: Pink is always in!

Ok, ok.. I admit it. I LOVE PINK!! I absolutely will never get tired of the color. It’s fun, it’s girly, and it is just oh-so pretty.

Yup, that’s the girly-girl in me speaking. I just adore the color. Maybe that’s why I have lots of pink-shade lipsticks too. And for today, I’m sporting a cool pink color that would say hello to summer!

Oh hello there sunshine!

Today, I’m wearing H&M Lipstick in Diva Bride. It’s one of the lipsticks I purchased last month when I was in Hong Kong.

Isn’t that a fabulous name for a lipstick? Diva Bride.. Every time I say it, it just make me feel like I’m some fabulous diva. Like Nicki MInaj.

Maybe on my special day (wedding), I’d probably consider wearing this shade. We’ll see..

What lipstick shade you wear that makes you feel like a DIVA?

FOTD: Violet Lipstick

I’ve been feeling a little experimental today, so I decided, why not violet? It’s usually my eye makeup that receives the experiment, but this time it’s my lips.

I’ve mentioned my Revlon’s Super Lustrous lipstick in Berry Haute in one of my previous posts, and it is just now that I took it out for a test-run.

Since I wanted my lips to get most of the attention, I just went for a simpler eye makeup. I just applied some taupe eyeshadow on my eyelid and black eyeliner on my upper and lower lashline. I didn’t put a lot of blush just a hint to give a healthy glow.

 

FOTD: Winged Liner and Red Lips

Inspired by my last post on winged eyeliner, I decided to sport the look, but this time, I used a cream eyeliner and paired it with a deep red lipstick.

I didn’t use any eyeshadow here, just the cream eyeliner. And for the cheeks, I used a cheek tint for a subtle glow. And using a lip brush for precision, I applied Revlon’s Wine with Everything.

L.A. makeup madness: Revlon Lipsticks

I love lipsticks from MAC but one drugstore brand that I have heard raves about are from Revlon. Although Revlon is widely available here in the Philippines, their collection is not as extensive than in the U.S. I read in an article by Total Beauty, that a great cheap swap for MAC’s Lady Danger is Revlon’s Orange Flip. And since the MAC counter that I visited was out of that shade, as I previously mentioned, I was on the hunt for the Revlon alternative.

Along the way, I found some other interesting Revlon Lipsticks. Here’s the lineup: Moon Drops lipstick in Orange Flip, Colorburst lip butter in Sweet Tart, and Super Lustrous lipstick in Berry Haute.
