Newly acquired lip products1:30:00 AM
For the latter part of 2015, I dare say I've accumulated a few new lip things. This isn't counting the already sizeable lip "things" I currently own. But let's just focus on these fairly recent ones. Besides I haven't done a makeup haul post in a while.
Most were bought but two in particular were given as gifts by family (EB Advance Liquid Lipstick and Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm). Here's a run-down with the prices.
- Pinkies Collection in Calalily and Bark - Php 169 (Price is currently Php 199)
- Secret Key Chubby Jelly Tint Pack in Plum Purple - Php 300
- EB Advance Liquid Lipstick in Soft Lace - Php 180
- Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 6 - Php 150 (Sale)
- Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry - around Php 287 (Sale)
- Essence XXL Shine Lipgloss in Nude Candy and Wood of Roses - Php 50 each (YES)
Same story as the Maybelline Lip Polish, I got suckered in by Essence Cosmetic's half-off sale and settled on Nude Candy and Wood of Roses. I figured if they were too sheer I can always put them on top of my lipsticks to alter the colour. Surprisingly these pack quite the pigment. It's not as sheer as I thought especially Wood of Roses—a slightly reddish brown with multi-coloured shimmers. Also it's not as sticky as I thought. Like the Lip Polishes, these are very comfortable to wear. As you can see there are glitters but they aren't chunky nor do they look "kiddy", you know like play makeup? It also has a scent that reminds me strongly of Fruit Loops (a little "kiddy" but who cares).
I learned that Nude Candy, the creamy baby nude pink with silver shimmers, is a good dupe for Nars' Turkish Delight lip-gloss.
I think it's a little pricey considering you need to use a thick application each time but it stays true to the lip tint claim. The gimick lasted until after the first try then I realized I'd rather use a regular lip tint than wait for this to dry and peel costing me precious minutes. Minutes I could be using to eat.
I'm still testing these out but I'll definitely be posting reviews about most of them. What do you want reviewed first? Let me know!
PS. Maybelline only had the sale until Dec 31, 2015. Revlon isn't on sale anymore :(. Essence might have a few things still on sale but I wouldn't bet on it.
