#GetLippieTuesday

Remember my US Beauty Haul video?

 
Well, I finally tried the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Lipstick in Spiderweb, US$18! As I mentioned in the video, I got it because I wanted to cop Gwen’s signature, vivid red pout.

Yup, that's the color I'm looking for! Her signature red.

I didn’t get to see it in person, so I was super hoping that I made the right choice and that it’ll look great on my skintone.

Saw this on Mariel's IG and the shades (listed in the photo's comments) are so pretty! Want, want, want!

I actually posted about lusting for Gwen’s lippie collection here. So I did a lot of IG stalking and debated between getting Spiderweb and 714.

Obviously, you know I went with this choice.

But the real question now is, did it give me the va-va-voom red that I’m looking for? Find out after the jump! Continue reading

I’m loving this violet lippie! It’s such a nice change from my usual pinks and reds.

It was my go-to lipstick while I was in Baguio recently.

And here's what it looks like on me!

And I also used it here!

Do you like it also? It’s the Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer in Grape Pop (click here to see the tube). I love the creamy, rich color (one swipe will do!). There’s also a subtle shine to it, and it doesn’t dry out my lips at all. It claims to last for up to eight hours, but I think you’ll have to reapply after 2-3 hours. Oh, and did I mention it’s also fragrance-free? Win!  Continue reading

#GetLippieTuesday

I have a lot of new lippies to review and couldn’t decide which one to write about first. So I asked the gals on my personal and public Facebook page (follow me here!) which brand they wanted me to feature and Maybelline got the most votes! Why? A lot of women (like me, lol) are looking for budget-friendly makeup finds!

The Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick, P299 each.

Here’s the reader’s pick for today’s #GetLippieTuesday review: Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick, P299 each.

Based on the sheer number of Maybelline posts on my blog, you can tell that it’s my favorite drugstore brand. That’s why I was worried when they released a matte line. Would it look chalky? Would a matte lippie this cheap make my pout crack and suffer? Would it disappoint?

Here's what the packaging looks like. Not too fancy or exciting to whip out, but the matte cap is a nice touch.

#GetLippieTuesday: Stila Liquid Lipstick in Bacca

Check out one of the latest lippies from Stila’s Spring 2016 collection!

It's the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bacca!

It’s the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bacca! Click here to see the other shades from their Spring collection—they have 5 including this one!

The color is gorgeous! I’m a sucker for bolder lip shades, so I’ve been using it almost every day now. It says it’s similar to raspberry on their website, but to me, it actually looks more like a deep, cranberry red. What do you think?

This creamy matte can last up to 6 hours and it feels pretty light on your lips.

Because it’s long-lasting, you will need to use a good makeup remover to get it all off at the end of the day. But other than that, you’ll be happy to know that you can wear this without prepping your pout with lip balm without drying it out (its formula has moisturizing avocado oil and vitamin E). The color is also über rich if you apply a full coat, but I actually like wearing it as a stain for a sexy, just-kissed effect.

Just dab a bit of color on your ring finger and then press it into your lips.

You do have to be careful when applying it to make sure that it doesn’t go past your lip line (just use a brush for precision). I really like using this lippie on days when I have lots of meetings and can’t be bothered with retouching. And honestly, guys? I’d say this is waaaaay more worth it than the Kylie Lip Kits if you want a matte, liquid lipstick that you won’t get tired of. It may not be as exciting or hyped up, but trust me, you’ll use this (and end up loving it) more in the long run. Haha, kinda like the good guy you should date :p

#GetLippieTuesday

After reviewing several colors from the Kylie Lip Kit line (read it here), I knew I had to get my very own tube from Ms. Jenner. After all, it’s the hottest beauty buy all over the world now!

It's here! I ordered mine from @duckfaceph.

It’s here! I ordered mine from @duckfaceph on Instagram.

She came highly recommended by fellow lipstick addict and Cosmo.ph’s resident beauty girl, Retty. I usually prefer to buy from the source, but given the frenzy, I decided to just order from a local reseller.

Anyway, enough talking already! Let’s start unboxing!

The infamous box with her trademark lip drips. I was so excited to see what's inside!

So now that I’ve literally shown you my unboxing, can you guess what I ordered? There’s a clue in the previous sentence I just typed! Hehe! And there was something pretty controversial about its packaging, too. Find out what it is (and see if I got a bum order) after the jump! Continue reading
