Sparkle TV: Non-Touring With Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Foundation & Concealer

Have you heard of this trend yet? Non-touring is a more natural and subtle way to sculpt your face (because apparently, people are sooo over contouring now). Basically, it’s like a no makeup look that’s spiked with some major highlighting. Here’s my take on it:

 
I super love this trend, and apparently, it’s a fave look of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid! I really like how it adds more dimension to my face in photos and that it’s pretty glam without being too cray, you know?

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!

The box flips open at the top and her official website is stamped on the flap.

Love it! And I loved getting a peak at her handwriting, too.

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

#GetLippieTuesday

We had another Skin Matters event yesterday!

I've been so busy with work that I haven't had time to blog. I'm sooooo sorry! Things should lighten up soon though. 

When you work with the best team, you forget that it’s work! It’s so fun, but I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had time to blog. I’m sooooo sorry!

I’m hoping that things will lighten up soon, but the last quarter of the year is usually the busiest for editors. But enough about that! Let’s talk about the lipstick I wore at the event instead—it’s way more important! LOL!

Anthea Bueno did my makeup again and I took this pic at like 11 p.m. It lasted the whole day!

I actually wanted to wear a red lip with this, but Anthea stopped me. The event was about skin, so I had to let that shine through since my eyes were pretty smokey already. So, we stuck with this fab Laura Mercier pick and I got lots of compliments from it.

When I got home, however, it was a different story! Haha, I really feel better with a stronger lip color.

I played around with another find from Ofra. I’m really starting to get this whole obsession with the brown lips trend. Either that, or I’m really trying to find one that I super love. This one came off a bit stronger and darker than I thought, but I kinda liked it. Do you?

Check out the lippie and the other gloss I paired it with after the jump! Continue reading
