Get Lippie Tuesday

I haven’t had a go-to fuchsia lipstick in a looong time!

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Pink Violet, P???.

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Pink Violet, P1,400.

I think it’s a limited edition because (1) that’s what the counter girl at Bobbi said, and (2) she also said there was only one tube left in Rustan’s Makati! If you’re loving the shade, you better hustle there soon!

See how there's a nice wash of color, but my skin still peeks through?

I swiped this on about 2-3 times to get that intensity. It’s a good day-to-night lipstick, since you can start off with a stain in the a.m. and then work your way up to a nice popping color in the p.m.

Get Lippie Tuesday: Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi-Gloss

I like matching my outfits to my makeup—not the other way around! I’m not really a fashion girl, so this helps me get a little more excited about picking out what clothes to wear.

It's errand day, so I just wanted something casual with fun pops of color. As for my glasses? They're for my feeling hipster days—I don't really need ’em. Hehe!

I had fun playing around with the Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Artist Plexi-Gloss today. What I liked about the samples that were sent my way is that I had one with a pearl finish (the light beige shade) and one without (the orange shade). But what I really loved was the wand!

It has a split-tip, so you get the perfect amount of gloss with each swipe.

Compared to the usual doe-foot wand, I found this had a lot more grip in the sponge. It was flexible, so it was able to hug my lips as I swept it over each curve. I liked that I got more precision and that I didn’t waste a lot of product or have to blot any excess gloss off. If you have thicker lips like mine, you may need to dip the wand into the tube twice to pickup more gloss—once for your upper lip and once again for your lower lip—for full coverage. If you’re just using it to highlight the center of your pout, then there’s no need to double dip.
