REVIEW: Happy Skin Shut Up and Kiss Me Lipstick (+ Swatches)

I am so excited to  share with you my rave for this awesome lip product from Happy Skin.  Happy Skin is a local brand founded by Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez and Rissa Mananquil-Trillo. Rissa is one of the few people in the modeling industry that I admire. So when I heard the buzz about the company on Instagram, I know I’m in for something great.

The video campaign below best  describes what the company is all about. Continue reading REVIEW: Happy Skin Shut Up and Kiss Me Lipstick (+ Swatches)

Today I bring you my take on Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer or what is Britishly known as Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer. I bought 2 shades from Bon Marche a few months ago: Aurora and Bigbang.

Both shades are pretty, very long lasting and fairly comfortable on the lips. See my individual comments on the shades after the cut. Continue reading REVIEW: Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Bigbang and Aurora ( + Swatches)

Makeup and Skincare Haul from Lotte Duty Free

Hello everyone!

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I just came back from a week’s trip to Seoul, South Korea. One of the things that got me excited with this trip is the beauty/skincare items. Korea’s a country that’s very big in the beauty department. There is a makeup store literally every after 10 steps.  In some areas, they’d be situated side by side (hello, Myeongdong, Hongdae, Ehwa University).  Continue reading Makeup and Skincare Haul from Lotte Duty Free

REVIEW: Dior Fluid Sticks in Open Me and Mona Lisette (+ Swatches)

From Dior’s Website:

Flawless application in a single sweep: the high-impact colour and long wear of a lipstick, combined with the shine of a gloss, all in a thin veil that delivers a weightless feel. Colour and shine come together for maximum impact with intense lip stain pigments directly encapsulated in spheres of gloss for long-wearing results. Dior Addict Fluid Stick is formulated with water, not wax, for a light feeling on the lips, an immediate fresh effect and addictive sensation…

A pure object of desire : the illusion of a lipstick is maintained until the case is opened and an applicator emerges that is steeped in colour and as precise and easy to apply as a lipstick.

17 explosive shades like so many flashes of brilliance. Decidedly Dior, Tremendously Couture…

These Dior fluid sticks are my most favorite beauty buy from my recent Korea trip. Have you seen the packaging? IT IS GORGEOUS. The packaging looks very similar to Maybelline Elixirs but Dior takes it to the next level.  Continue reading REVIEW: Dior Fluid Sticks in Open Me and Mona Lisette (+ Swatches)
