MAC Blankety lipstick

Helloooooooo everyone! πŸ™‚ This is going to be my first post for 2012!
I’ve been out of town so I apologize for not being able to update my blog. I promise to make it up to you by finishing the pending posts on my drafts.

Moving on, YEHESSS! I’m doing a beauty review!

When my mom went to Singapore, she bought this MAC Blankety lipstick for me which became my all-time favorite. Since I always wear eyeliner (to hide my bulging eyes), I’d always have to wear lighter lippie because of my strong peepers. And I find this the perfect one to use!

Yep, that’s how it looks. Please just ignore my big forehead, ginormous eyebagsΒ  and smudged eyeliner. HAHA

Famous Filipino stylist Liz Uy is right!

nakakaganda ang Blankety! promise!

Γ  lΓ¨vres: Lippies and Other Drugs

Admit it. A tube of lipstick/gloss is always a guilty pleasure for every girl.
I am nervous and excited about my first ever beauty-make up blog post but let’s get this on.

I’m lucky enough to have Ninez as one of my best friends because apart from having bangs in common, (*wink wink!) our love for lippies kind of brings us closer.
Why don’t you guys click this (thanks nezi for giving this link to me) to know the Chicest, Most Flattering Red Lipsticks for Fall? πŸ™‚

Also,
I’ve been saving bucks for MAC’s Venomous Villain Collection. It’s to die for!

OM NOM NOM πŸ™‚

I told you it’sΒ  lippie lust!

So since I’m not actually a trust fund baby, you could only count with your fingers the MAC tubes that I own.

There are still lippies that are nice and affordable like this lip concealer/nude from Etude House. I started using this because my cousin, Nicole introduced it to me.

You can actually wear it in many ways! πŸ™‚

It’s best to use it as a base before you put your lip color. It actually makes the shade last long πŸ™‚

ME on nude.

I don’t usually wear dark colors unless I go out to party because my typical school look is always with a heavy eyeliner. So I have to keep my lips simple to match my strong eyes or else I’ll look like a stripper in a nursing uniform. HAHA kidding!

My everyday lippie is Maybelline‘s Watershine Pure P24

It’s simple and chic plus I have my Watermelon ‘N Cream Lipsmacker (Vanilla Creams series) as base so I can actually have flavored lips! HAHA

During occasions, I use Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush: Strawberry Fields. It’s color red and lasts really long plus it’s very yummy! πŸ™‚
I have my H&M lipgloss go with it but it already doesn’t really need a base.

Mine’s so overused you can’t actually read it or can barely make out the words HAHA

Lastly, I’m gonna show you my most favorite lipstick.
Lancome’s Color Design All Done Up Cream. It lasts 24 hours and doesn’t even fade even if you’re eating or brushing your teeth! (I swear!).
It looks good with Lancome’s Juicy Tube lipgloss too.

That’s not actually the color so I had to take a picture of my own tube πŸ™‚

So there you go guys! πŸ™‚ I would like to hear your lippie suggestions.
Thanks so much for reading. Comments are highly appreciated! πŸ˜‰

Happy Sunday!

much love,
NICA :*
