Friday, August 19, 2016

     So how many lipsticks you have in your makeup stash? Three, five, ten, or more? I will assume that you have more than five because I agree that a girl really can never have too many lipsticks! We always want to have all the shades, the latest shades perhaps, the cutest and most sleek bullet, the budget-friendly ones, and so on and so forth.All girls will agree that once we get our hands on our first lipsticks, there's no stopping us from buying one tube to another. This is the most basic makeup that we have in our kit and it's a no brainer how to apply it. 

     Can I say that our generation is blessed because there are so many lipstick formulas in the market today- from tinted lip balm to glosses, lipsticks, mattes, and liquid formulas? We have so many options and did you know that a lip product's transformative power can be confidence booster or an artful expression? A swipe of one lip product can harness a presence that helps empower the modern Filipina. To make a long introduction short, I have great news to all lipstick lovers out there- The SM Beauty's Lipstick Fest Celebration Year 2. More reasons why you should not miss this below :)

2. Red and purples for those days that you need to own the room and make a statement. Red lipsticks make a powerful statement, some girls can sport red lipstick alone. If you're afraid that shades of red and purples will make you look snob, it's a big NO! Look at those lip lacquers below from Clinique. Pretty shades of red and purple for the win!

     Aside from lipstick, the basics are important which help us achieve perfect puckers. You must include this in your beauty kit so that application of your favorite lipstick is always a breeze.

1. Lip balms keep dry pouts at bay by providing nutrients that replenish moisture while lip liners on the other hand, make sure your lip color stays put throughout the day.

For ladies who experience this every year, the search for a trusted lip care is always challenging. Not all lip balms in the market guarantees immediate results. Some may trigger allergies that's why we need to know first the root cause of dry lips.Taking care of our lips is important as taking good care of our skin. 

     The skin surrounding our lips is very thin that's why we need to look for gentle and mild lip care products that will help in combating dry, flaky and chapped lips. Do you agree that looking polished with healthy and moisturized lips will give you the #onfleek feel all the time? For me, it's a yes!

     Dance floor maven and television personality Yassi Pressman is a good visual example of this. With her hectic schedule and always on the go lifestyle, one might wonder how this rising star manages to step out looking on point all the time. “It doesn’t take much for me, really. I try to stick to the basics no matter how busy I am. When my schedule is really hectic, I just put on cheek tint, mascara, and swipe on my trusty lip balm.”

Product Review: Etude House Sugar Tint Balm

Monday, May 25, 2015

     I will never get tired of trying a new lip product as long as the pigmentation is good and there's a lot of colors to choose from the brand! I'm happy to share with you my thoughts on Etude House Sugar Tint Lip Balm. I'm sure you've seen great reviews from beauty bloggers here and abroad and what they have to say about this product. I have a love-hate relationship with these lip balms but I think that it's only me who experienced it. By the way, thank you Etude House for sending these balms. 

     These lip balms are promising but I guess it's only me who can't tolerate a few types of scents and perfumes. To know more about the product scroll down and see photos, swatches, and what are the things I like about these babies :)

What I like:

  • The packaging is cute. It comes with a screw off lid/cap that can prevent the lid/cap from unscrewing off accidentally while these lip balms are inside your makeup kit or bag.
  • There are 8 pretty shades to choose from.
  • The color comes off true. What you see if what you get.
  • It is very pigmented. Looks like I'm wearing lipstick whenever I apply cranberry pie on my lips.
  • It glides smoothly on my lips without tugging and pulling therefore it's easy peasy to apply.
  • It has the right amount of gloss/shine on my lips. 
  • Etude House Sugar Tint Balm lasted 5 hours on my lips.
  • Does not fade after eating or sipping my drink.
  • Contains beauty oils like Jojoba Oil, Organic Argan Oil, and Vitamin E.
  • Easily accessible.

What I don't like: 

  • The price can be a bit steep for budget conscious individuals.
  • The scent- I find the fruity scent a bit off for my sensitive nose. I think it's just me because my sister likes the scent of these lip balms.
  • Can emphasize flaky and chapped lips because the texture is creamy. 

Will I repurchase? Maybe yes and no. Yes because I want to try the remaining six shades. No because I think a bullet will last long. I'm the type who will empty the contents of a product first before trying or buying a new one if it becomes a fave or HG (holy grail). 

     I give this product a 4/5 rating. I like that the packaging is cute and unique. It's very pigmented but buildable so it's like I'm already wearing a lipstick. If you have dry, flaky, and chapped lips, I advise you to exfoliate first as these lip balms may emphasize them. Other than that, you'll be surprised that you'll get the true color of these lip balms once applied. Some lipstick may look different on the tube and once applied. I have pigmented lips and I don't have a hard time making Grapefruit Tea show off it's true color in just two swipes.

Have you tried these pretty lip balms from Etude House? What's your favorite shade?

Good Times!~
