I’ve been doing the Ombré lips for a few months now but it took awhile before I felt totally satisfied with how the colours blended on my lips.
Late last month, I finally got it!
My first Glossier Haul was back in November 2016. It was because of Kat Dennings’s and Martine Cajucom’s posts that got me so curious, and I’m glad I took the plunge, because Glossier could take all my money (well, after I’ve paid all my bills).
This post has swatches and a link to get 20% off your Glossier purchase!
I honestly didn’t want to get into this whole thing. “This whole thing”, meaning the Kylie Lip Kit craze. Thinking about it now, it was definitely just my defense mechanism, considering that it wasn’t easy to get my hands on a single Lip Kit given how they’re usually sold out in a minute. But then there it was, before my very eyes : All the Kylie Lip Kit shades I ever wanted, no longer secretly — but screamingly. LEL.
Before I ended up with a legit Lip Kit, I had to be victimised by 1 FAKE Lip Kit. Good thing I only got one from one of the stalls at this Bazaar we went to recently (was not even able to get the store’s name). I’m definitely writing a HOW TO SPOT A FAKE LIP KIT on a separate post, featuring my second most favourite shade so far, KOKO K.
In this post I will be swatching the Matte Lip Kits in Candy K and Exposed, also the Metallic Liquid Lipstick in Heir.
This is long overdue! And despite this post’s title, some of these lippies were bought earlier than April. So excited to be doing this again. I’m no expert, obviously — but I am hella obsessed with Lipsticks!
In this post I will be swatching Liquid Lippies from DOSE in Bare with Me and Stone, ColourPop in Beeper and Clueless and MAC Retro Matte in Back in Vogue.
My first review / swatch entry, so exciting! That’s also my way of indirectly saying this would probably be bad, given that it is my first time to write reviews on recent lippy finds – I don’t consider myself to be a an expert on make-up, just someone who is obsessed with Eyeshadows and Lipsticks, but thought I’d share my latest haul (and a short review of each product – based on my standards) with you! Cut me some slack, mmkay?
A few of my sweet readers have asked me to post my Make-Up Routine. I know I’m no pro, but in celebration of Heart Evangelista’s “This is Me, Love Marie“, thought I should jump the gun and just go with it. LELZ. No seriously, I really thought of sharing my current favorite products anyway, even if I’m not someone people should get advice from in terms of Make-Up application. I don’t watch YouTube tutorials, and when I do, I barely even apply what I learn because … I’m just terrible at it. So I go with practice, with trial and error, with seeing what works best with me, for me.
I’ve been very fickle-minded with my hair in the past year. I’m not courageous enough to go wild with hair color (not to disregard the time I did the Ombré and side-shaved my head), but I’ve done pretty much damage especially when I impulsively permed it in 2013. and then got it straightened in the same year (which failed, and lead to more damage). Then I had my first Balayage coloring done from Salon-which-shall-not-be-named (LOL).
