Lipsticks of the Week: 15-20 March 2016

Hello friends! This week’s not only been busy, but excruciatingly hot as well! ;A; But then again, looking forward to what lipstick I’ll be wearing for the day helps to beat the summer heat blues.. or.. reds? I don’t know. Haha!

15 March - 16 March

TUESDAY – 15 March

Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Foxy Lady was gifted to me by one of my best friends, Alexis, and I’d only gotten to wear this beauty that day! It looks scary and dark in the tube, but it applies on as a beautiful, sheer espresso brown. Though not very pigmented, I like that I can layer it on for more coverage; and yet it manages to sit comfortably on my lips.

 

WEDNESDAY – 16 March

I wore a favourite – LA Splash’s Smitten Waterproof Liptint Mousse in Nymphadora (now called Nymphaea). I bought it mainly because of the Harry Potter reference (I am a Potterhead, and always will be – hello, Tonks!), and kept using and wearing it because it’s such a pretty nude brown on me. I love it! I’ve actually got a backup tube stashed in my closet. Hahaha! Continue reading “Lipsticks of the Week: 15-20 March 2016”

Lipsticks of the Week: 8-13 March 2016

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?

8 March - 9 March
8 March – 9 March

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.)
