Hello, friends! Another week has passed, which means it’s another set of lipsticks to backtrack and to talk about for this recap post. Shall we begin?
TUESDAY – 8 March
I wanted to start the week on a bright note, so I opted for Too Cool For School’s Hot Color Lip Sticker in Hawaiian Flower. The tube itself is tiny – think of a sample lipstick, or one of those play “lipsticks” you’d find in kiddie playsets. Other than that, the colour is vibrant and lasts pretty well even when most of it’s gone; because it leaves a nice stain on the lips. I’d use this for an ombré effect, but then again that look’s never really suited me! It’s a pretty purple-pink colour, perfect for summer. (It already feels like summer; the heat’s getting crazy in Manila!)
WEDNESDAY – 9 March
I wore Colourpop’s Lippie Stix in Tootsi for Wednesday. Before I bought it, I really took time to think about it – I was in the middle of my greige phase, and I wanted an alternative to Colourpop’s Ultra Matte in Trap because I knew liquid lipsticks were prone to making my lips feel really dry. Tootsi was the best alternative, and I don’t regret buying it at all – it’s a pale nude with just a hint of rosiness, so I don’t look washed out or dead when I wear it! I actually bought a second tube, and because sharing is caring I offered it to my friend who bought it from me – at a discounted price, of course! (What are friends for, right? Hee.)
