     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 :)

     SM Beauty wants to join every Filipinas journey of discovering the many different possibilities of lipstick! Like what I've mentioned above, lip products come in many forms and shades unlike before that we only have limited options. What are your favorite shades?

1. There nudes and pinks, for chill weekends and classic looks. If you're looking for a high-end brand, there's Guerlain. Look at the tubes below, they have a wide array of nudes and pinks!

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!

3. The wild colors such as your blues and blacks, for days that you are feeling a bit rebellious and bold. Whatever the mood, we have the perfect shade for you—no matter what the day or occasion. OFRA offers lip products in wild shades in their liquid lipstick collections. They have blue and green shades, yay!

     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.

3 Reasons to Celebrate International Lipstick Day with Sm Beauty

Product Review: Wet N Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour in A Stiff Pink

Friday, April 10, 2015

    Early last year, chubby crayon-like lipstick/lip balm/ lip stain hit beauty bloggers by storm. I've seen my favorite beauty gurus reviewing their fave chubby lippies in crayon form from brand one after the other! From high-end to cost effective ones, these babies offer pretty shades and functions more than one. I can't contain my excitement when I saw this from Luxola's website and said to myself that finally I'll be able to get hold of my own crayon because the price of a drugstore brand like Wet N Wild is pretty cheap and affordable!

     Here's a review of Wet N Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour in A Stiff Pink. This product was sent to me by Luxola last February so my apologies if this is a very late review. I describe this lip balm/lipstick/lip gloss/lip stain as a cool toned pink. It's a bright pink that leaves a beautiful stain on my lips. If my memory serves me right, this shade can be a close dupe of one of my lipsticks, MAC Girl About Town (GAT) but this one is a tad ligther. I'll check and update this post just to be sure. To see photos and swatches, click CONTINUE READING now!

According to Wet N Wild's website:

     Now you can amp up your lips with one stick for a kissable pout in no time. To keep you pucker-perfect, these all NEW lip balm stains glide on smoothly while conditioning the lips. Enriched with Acai Palm Oil, this amazing formula forms a protective shield on the lips to prevent feathering. Complete with six great shades and continuous moisture, the formula leaves the lips with a unique minty, cooling sensation. No matter how long the kiss, this balm will last and last.

     Photo above shows the content of one crayon. Swatch on my forearm twice. It is very pigmented. Looks light inside crayon packaging but turns into a bright blue toned pink after application. The photo on the right shows the stain. It's a pain to remove, I've already placed my arm under running water and I've tried smudging it to remove but the stain is still there.

What I like:
  • The price is el cheapo compared to other chubby sticks in the market today.
  • The packaging is cute. It is a twist up crayon pencil that has a clear cap. The packaging's color is the same as the shade of the balm stain.
  • No need to sharpen.
  • There are 6 gorgeous shades to choose from.
  • It's a 4-in-1 product- a lip gloss, lip stain, lipstick and lip balm!
  • There's a unique minty, cool sensation upon application. 
  • It is very pigmented. Not for the faint of heart if  you apply it with a heavy hand.
  • It is easy to apply as it glides smoothly on my lips without tugging and pulling my lips.
  • Lasted 6 hours on my lips. 
  • Does not fade after eating or sipping my drink.
  • Does not fade unevenly as it leaves a beautiful stain on my lips.
  • There's a batch and manufacturing date printed on it.
What I don't like: 
  • The packaging is flimsy.
  • There's a semi- chemical scent.
  • It dries out my lips even if I apply my fave lip balm underneath.
  • It's a pain to remove even if I use my fave makeup remover.
Will I repurchase? Maybe yes and no. Yes because I want to try the remaining five 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 4.25/5 rating. I like that it's pigmented and easy to use plus it's affordable but it dries out my lips and I find it hard to remove even if I use my favorite makeup remover. So if your lips are prone to drying, use a heavy duty lip balm underneath this balm stain. The minty and cooling sensation is unique and fun! I recommend this balm stain to budget conscious individuals and to students too who wants to try a good drugstore brand.

Product Review: Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

     Hello dearies! The long wait is finally over, here are the swatches and my thoughts on Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain lipstick/lipstain. I received a couple of emails regarding the swatches of this lipstain that was sent to me by Revlon Philippines. When these landed on our doorsteps, I immediately tested the lightest color which is LA Exclusive. It's a bubblegum pink shade that compliments my skin tone. 

     To give you a brief information about the product, these lip stains are ultra-light and creamy, gives a nice glossy finish and leaves a pretty stain on the lips. I actually like these lip stains and been wearing the three shades alternately almost everyday. To know more about the product and the swatches, click CONTINUE READING
