#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

Sparkle TV: My US Beauty Haul!

When you see makeup or skincare products that aren’t available locally, what do you do? Do you purchase from resellers, order online and risk having them shipped, or ask someone who’s traveling to oh-so-kindly buy it for you? Me? I prefer to do the latter. Watch and see what I shopped for!

 

If you guys see anything you like or want me to review any of these goodies on the blog, leave me a comment! And don’t forget to subscribe (www.bit.ly/SparkleSubscribe) to send me some love!

P.S.
Did you see me panic at the 1:13 mark when I thought they sent me the wrong product? LOL! ♥

I have lipstick lust…

I’ve always admired Gwen Stefani’s lipstick and makeup style. She’s super cool, fun, and I do enjoy watching her on The Voice—especially now that her romance is heating up with Blake Shelton. Disclaimer: I love Hollywood gossip!

So many colors to choose from! If only I could see them in person!

Can you sense my frustration? LOL! At first, I was torn between getting the red or fuchsia shade. Then, I realized that I need a good red. And that I want a Gwen Stefani kinda red, so…

Maybe this one? The shade is 714 (probably named after the area code in Gwen's hometown).

I wish I could see them in person and give each shade a good swatch, then I’d know which one I want based on what it looks like on my skintone. I read a few reviews and some said that Spiderweb was more Gwen’s signature red. I’m so confused, so until I figure it out, I’ll just keep watching her latest video and drooling over the lippie shade she’s rocking.

Which shade do you think I should get? Leave a comment and help me figure out which one is closest to Gwen Stefani’s signature red pout! ♥
