Well, well. I think I may have found a really good matte formula. This review will be short and quick since it doesn’t need a long intro. (But really, I am just lazy to write a long one.) I bought the first one, Raspberry Syrup, because it was on sale at 400 pesos last May. I didn’t really need a new lipstick (says no beauty lover ever) but the discounted price tempted me and the shade name reminded me of my first Bobbi Brown Lipstick – Cosmic Raspberry. The color is nothing like the Bobbi Brown one though. Raspberry Syrup is a reddish pink shade that leans a little bit coral. Now for the last two shades, I only got them last week since they were still on sale. (Come on L’oreal, my wallet is empty already.) Spring Rosette is a pretty nice neutral and muted pink. I would call it a nude but many may disagree. It’s a good every day lip color. Glamour Fuchsia is my favorite of the lot. It’s a magenta purple. I’ve been looking for a matte purple lipstick that won’t look to clownish on me and this is the one. Thanks to Rae for the reco! I’m only wearing Bourjois CC cream and a bit of pencil on my eyebrows on the photos below. Sorry for the change of lighting in the photos. Oh you know, sun.
These L’oreal moist matte ones are not drying, stays on pretty long (5-6 hours) and fades pretty nicely. It has this slightly powdery texture that feels lightweight. Super love! <3 These lipticks are still on sale at 400 pesos until June 30, 2015 so grab one if you can! It’s worth it.
P.S. My Glamour Fuchsia broke while I was swatching it. Huhu. They are creamy so make sure not to twist all the way up before you use it. A , warning to you, just in case.
I was dreading this day. January 5. That means I have to go back to work. NOOOOOOO. /sadface. Our office has a shutdown and the 3-week vacation flew by so quickly I felt it was not enough. Who’s with me on this?
So to get me going last Monday, I decided to document it and kick off 2015 with my seventh FOTD post. Painting my face with makeup was the only thing that got me excited for work.
See the products I used after the cut! Continue reading FOTD #7: First day of work
I haven’t been feeling my best the past week because my hyperacidity attacks are at its peak again. I thought I got it under control until l took a few sips of Matcha Latte from Happy Lemon 2 Sundays ago. Ika nga nila, masarap ang bawal. Caffeine is my biggest trigger and my hyperacidity acts up and as a result, I couldn’t breathe properly because too much acid produces too much air in my stomach. I feel so bloated when this happens.
So I am back to my usual medication, and I am back to eating small frequent meals throughout the day. Bummer.
Anyway, enough of my health issues. Sharing you another face of the day post!
Face. I finally used my Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in Beige. I seriously need to put out all my base products so I could use them all up. This foundation is slightly watery so it’s very lightweight but gives a beautiful dewy, medium coverage. I used Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Sand to cover the redness around my nose and some hyperpigmentation on my cheeks. For blush, I used Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Berry Pop to give my cheeks some color. Since I am oily, I used Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder to set my base. This is an awesome powder since it makes my face looks amazingly flawless. I then set everything with MAC fix+ setting spray. Continue reading FOTD #5 – Flawless Base
My skin has been acting up recently. I’m not breaking out in particular but I see whiteheads sprouting in places that has been clear before. I think my skin needs time to breathe so I replaced some items in my skincare routine and stopped wearing heavy makeup.

I am back with another FOTD post! Putting on makeup is the most enjoyable part of prepping for the day. Whether I’d go to office, a date with the bf, it’s just something I really enjoy. Doing posts like this actually force me to look at all my stuff and use them more regularly. You don’t want to see the same products featured in my FOTD posts, right? So these kinds of posts are very helpful in keeping track and making sure I use the makeup I have. Continue reading FOTD #3
Yes I know it’s June already and it’s already starting to rain here in Manila. But you cannot deny the fact that the weather still very very hot, yes? So I’ve gathered my most used base products for the past months. Continue reading My favorite base products (Summer edition)
Here I am with another face of the day post. What I do is I list down all the makeup I use and provide you the finish product so that means you’ll see my face! Or a selfie if Chard is not around. Continue reading FOTD # 2
