Bold and Berry

All About Plum 3

Winter is not yet over so I think it’s still not too late to talk about  about bold lips. Most specifically, berry lips.  I love dark lips. Be it red or plum/berry – I really love the look of it. It’s a great color that can easily brighten up your bare face. I remember seeing Heart Evangelista on TV 4 years ago sporting a beautiful vampy lip and I thought to myself: I want a lip stick like that. I asked my aunt from the US to buy me my very first MAC lipstick, REBEL. I loved it so much that I didn’t bother to buy or look  for any other plum lipsticks. It’s a dark purple that looks great opaque and looks great when sheered out as well. It also fades gorgeously into a light purple/pinkish stain. This is probably the “driest” of them all when it comes to texture. It’s a satin so it has a bit of a shine, but it feels a little bit drying on the lips as I wear it throughout the day.

FOTD #6: Glam Makeup (plus bonus hair tutorial)

I haven’t posted an FOTD in a while but I have something exciting in store for you in this post. We had our office Christmas party last Monday and the theme was red carpet glam. We never had a party that’s this formal before so I was excited to do my makeup. I didn’t want to have my hair fixed so I searched for youtube tutorial and decided to do Estee’s hair tutorial. It’s quite easy to do, just make sure to prep your hair if you have long and thick hair like mine. All you need is a headband, bobby pins, texturizing spray and hair spray to hold everything in place. Watch her tutorial, it’s so easy peasy!

Lip Product Addict Tag

If you look at my makeup drawers, you’d see that lipsticks take up a lot of space so it’s just appropriate that I do this tag. This was created by two of my favorite beauty bloggers Amelia and Estee. Since I don’t have a beauty channel, I decided to just do this on this space.

Favorite balm or treatment?

Korres Lip Balm in Mango

Korres Lip Butter.  I have mine in Mango and it smells so good. When I use it as my night time lip treatment, I always wake up with soft, moisturized lips! This gives your lips a sheer wash of orange tint that’s not very sticky. Just <3.

Favorite eye catching red?

FOTD #3

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

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)
