    REVIEW: L’Oreal x Balmain Lipstick Collection

    In September 2017, L’Oreal launched a lipstick line in collaboration with fashion brand Balmain. So I’m pretty late to the game on this review, because you know, life gets in the way.

    Anyhow, I bought these lipsticks mainly because it was in collaboration with Balmain—it might be the closest I can get to buying makeup from a luxury brand, haha.

    I purchased the shades Domination and Power for PHP499 each.

    REVIEW: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks

    I live five minutes away from a mall that has a Revlon counter, so needless to say, every payday I hit ’em up just to browse. I bought these lippies on a whim because they were marked down, and boy, am I ever glad I impulse-shopped!

    Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks

    They come in 82 shades, so there’s bound to be something for everyone. As for me, I was drawn by the deeper colors like their reds. Shocking. /sarc

    Let’s start with the packaging. Black and gold is truly a classic combination, and it makes these tubes look sophisticated. However, I do wish there was a bit of whimsy in the packaging, because make-up is fun!!! These look very typical to other makeup packaging. Yawn.

    REVIEW: Revlon Haul Part 3 of 3: Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie

    True story: when I couldn’t afford buying this just yet, I just went to drugstores and used the tester tube because I could not resist not having this lovely color on my lips.
     

    Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie

    First things first. Packaging.
    The entire Lip Butters line is so cute. I love everything about the packaging, from the quilted design to the square tubes! A+

    When they say Lip Butter, they frigging mean butter. Seriously, it was so rich that you had no doubt it’ll moisturize the hell out of your lips. It’s so creamy that it’s kinda hard to apply without lip liner and/or a lip brush, lest it bleeds around your mouth. Plus, the soft texture might mean it’ll smoosh in the tube in hot temperatures.

    REVIEW: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in 645 Red Revival

    I like Maybelline products well enough. They’re almost dirt-cheap and I haven’t had any huge problems with anything I’ve bought from them. That’s why I bought this lipstick on a whim.
    Before this, I’ve never experimented with a bold lip. My go-to lippie was Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme in Chestnut, which was a relatively neutral red-brown, but I wanted something new and different. Boy, did I ever get it.
