#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.

My New Fave Mascara!

I’ve always been loyal to Maybelline mascaras, especially the Hypercurl line. It’s the only one that really works on my Asian eyelashes.

But now I'm a convert! This is just as good—actually, I think it might even be better! It's the Maybelline Lash Sensation Mascara, P429.

Honestly, when I first saw the tube and read that it was volumizing, I had my doubts. Fat mascara tubes that aim to plump up my lashes usually end up weighing them down after a few swipes. Check out the mascara wand and see how it lengthened my eyelashes after the jump! Continue reading

Yessssss!!! I finally figured out the winning hair formula!

Yessssss!!! I finally figured out the winning hair formula!

Unfortunately, the stylist usually gets the blame when a cut doesn’t turn out as expected. But since I super love + trust mine (read about him here), I knew that it was a “user error” and just had to adjust my hair game. Here’s how I did it:

Mane Strategy #1: Prep with the right product.

After drying my hair, I scrunched a blob of Ouai Finishing Crème, US$24, into my strands.

Guys, this product is such a game changer and it protects you from heat styling, too! It really was love at first scrunch, because it gave me the grit and hold I wanted. I asked my sister to buy this for me when she was in the US and it’s sooo worth it, but I’ll have to save my review for another post! For now, let’s go back to my mane strategies! You won’t want to miss #3—it’s the real secret to nailing this look! Continue reading
