Swatch

Time to review these babies since I’ve had them for quite some time now.

Closer look at the swatch: Striking (TOP), Audacious (BOTTOM)

I have the shades Striking and Audacious. I know, I know, they both look orange. I think it’s the inner Shinhwa fangirl in me that attracted me to these shades. Continue reading REVIEW: REVLON MATTE BALMS (+ Swatches)

REVIEW: A Tale of Two Minuits (Dior Diorific Lipstick)

You’re in for quite a story today. And it involves 2 lipsticks with the same name, from the same company but with different colors.

Chard frequented Singapore in 2013 since it was his layover to and from Sydney. He was there for about 7-8 months for work.  So every time he comes home, he will always ask me if I want anything from Changi Airport.

I think L’oreal also came up with a similar product late last year. I think they’re called Maybelline Lip Polish here in the Philippines. I’ve seen this once in the local counters and they seem to have limited colors and different color names too.

REVIEW: Nars Lip Pencils in Cruella and Majella

I have been hearing a lot about these NARS lip pencils from bloggers and Youtubers from all over the world. I finally succumbed and bought my first one 4 weeks ago at Rustan’s Shangrila. It was actually Anna from VDM who made me do it. She posted about the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella on this post. I was like, okay, I have to get it.
