Hello, friends! 🙂 Yesterday marked the end of my Lipsticks of the Week series (otherwise known as March Madness to me, haha). I’m really happy and relieved that I’ve finished my very first series on my blog; it’s the first time I’ve really done anything like this!
Let’s look back at the lipsticks from 22-23 March, because I only went to work on those days that week. It was the Holy Week celebration here in the Philippines, and I was off work from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday – I figured it was only natural to not wear makeup on those holidays, mainly because I felt it would be respectful to the actual reason for Holy Week.
TUESDAY – 22 March
Aha, a photo wherein you can see my whole face! This was Colourpop’s Ultra Matte Lip in Clueless – a pretty mauve-pink that somehow brightens up my face. And for good measure – I had to work a morning shift that day, which my evening/closing shift body clock totally hates! Needless to say, I was so, so sleepy.. but Clueless makes me look less tired, I think. And me, not love this lip colour? AS IF!
WEDNESDAY – 23 March
NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler was actually the first one I purchased from the Butter Gloss line – it was the only one available when I visited the NYX Cosmetics store in SM City Cebu, while on a solo trip there. It looks intimidating, a bright orange straight out of the tube; but once slicked onto the lips it’s actually a pretty coral. I love that colour is buildable, and lips never feel parched. A word of caution – don’t slather on too many layers as it’ll end up quite tacky! But nevertheless, the Butter Glosses are really in a league of their own; at least to me!
