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? If you like this look and what to see more tutorials or reviews, show me some love by leaving me a thumbs-up and clicking here to subscribe! ♥

Laura Mercier #KnockoutPout Glam Day

I don’t normally like getting my makeup done at events, but sometimes, I really can’t resist the urge to get all glammed up!

And if it's the fab team from Laura Mercier and Rustan's taking care of you, you won't be able to resist either!

We had to get made up because they were going to shoot us wearing a shade from Laura’s latest Knockout Pout lip colors.

See all the lippies in the background? It was so hard to choose one!

There were lots of fab nudes and rich reds, but I always go for those. So I decided to try a more orange-y hue and reached for the Laura Mercier Lip Parfait in Creamsicle.

See what it looks like on me (and spy on the products they used on my entire face) after the jump! Continue reading

#GetLippieTuesday

So Ms. Kylie launched herself a lippie line today—and everything was sold out in about 30 seconds!

OMG! The website even crashed because so many people were trying to order!

OMG! The Lip Kit by Kylie website even crashed because so many people were trying to order!

Each set (she launched 3) retails at US$29, which is pretty cheap since the you get a lipstick and lip liner. But because of the crazy demand, they’re now being sold on eBay for up to US$250 each!

Yup, this is being re-sold for US$250. As hot as they are, I think I'd rather get Louboutain lippies for that price.

Kylie's swatches from her IG! The one on top is Candy K, then Dolce K, and the darkest is True Brown K.

The colors all look great and I have to admit all the hype’s got me curious. But because I can’t try them right now, how about we play with a few dupes?

Over the past month, I've kinda been obsessed with brown lippies. And the few I've tried out are actually pretty close to the shades that Kylie launched.

I’ll show you pics of Kylie’s photos from her lip kit line and will try to find the closest lippies I have that match the color, so we can compare. Check them out after the jump! Continue reading

Guess what was trending at this year’s VMAs?

Nude lipsticks...again! It's certainly a style staple on the red carpet.

Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Nude Rose, P1,250. P.S. Loving my cut by Jing Monis–it gets better and better as it grows out!

At first I thought it was a bit dark, but it actually has rosy undertones that flatter your lips.

It's rich in color and luscious in feel. A little goes a long way with this one!

Get Lippie Tuesday

If you’re looking for a classic, red lipstick, you might want to check this out!

I like how the color really grips onto your lips (you’ll feel a firm, tugging motion when you swipe it on) because this means that it’s less likely to bleed out. I’ve been ditching the lip liner because of the pointy tip. As this dulls over time, a lip brush will do for precision application since the formula is pretty budge-proof.

Such a rich and versatile red. I think this will suit all skintones pretty well.

It seems a bit blue-based, but I see some orange-y tones in there also. I think that’s why the Laura Mercier team has dubbed it as a classic, neutral red. Want to see what it looks like on me? Clickity-click! Continue reading
